I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

The present-day X-Men teaming up with the 60s cast is the first thing about this sequel that's interested me. As good as First Class was, I could never get past thinking how much better it would have been as a total reboot, without the mishmash of a lineup or the specter of eventually evolving into Wolverine's team of sidekicks.

They really wanna wow me, they should make it so that the present-day X-Men are going back in time to prevent X-Men 3 from happening. At the end of the movie, Cyclops is alive, Xavier is still Patrick Stewart, and Rogue has her powers. The franchise is saved.

...oh, and somehow this also causes the events of Wolverine not to have happened. I don't care how.

Ohhh, I am soooo down with that. icon-hotrod.gif But please, make X-Men2 not happen as well. So many good characters wasted in that one too (Mastermind, Lady Deathstrike, Nightcrawler).

well I mean Nightcrawler was basically hugely entertaining in that movie, Deathstrike is a B-list goon who got to go toe to toe against Wolverine for a considerable portion of the movie, which is pretty neat. And the only thing I can ever recall Mastermind do in the comics is drive Jean nuts (also, have hotter relatives). So I mean I don't think they were really "wasted" in X2 so much "utilized perfectly" and X2 shouldn't be wiped out of continuity and instead recognized as one of the Superhero comic book adaptations to this day.

I wouldn't be too surprised if with time travel, they manage to wipe X3 out of continuity not just editorially, but literally preventing it from happening.
Woooo!

Nightcrawler got the best damn sequence in that movie, even if he was brainwashed during it. Hardly wasted.

Nightcrawler is introduced, is interesting... and then they basically forget about him for the rest of the movie. I seriously don't remember him doing anything for the rest of the movie after they remove the brainwashing.

Then again, I might be just forgetting things. X-Men 2 and Spiderman 2 have been such disappointments to me, I never watched them more than once.

X-Men 2 disappointing? Wow.

I reckon the film is close to pitch-perfect. I'd even argue it's better than any of the source material.

I'm not really keen on any of the Spider-Man flicks, but 2 was also my favourite there.

The problem I had with Spider-Man 2 was it featured way too many scenes of Peter ripping off/without his mask. From what I've heard, the new Spidey movie features the same issue. There's a reason Peter wears a full face mask.

Also Otto's arms being sentient and evil. And the fact he was never referred to as "Doctor Octopus" but merely "Doc Ock" - including on the toys.

That having been said, I loved Otto's design in the movie, and the hospital scene was pretty intense for a Super Hero movie at that time.


As for X2...I had the same issues others had. I can remember the Nightcrawler scene perfectly, but the rest of the movie blurs by and I have the general impression of being bored with it. X-Men fans generally liked it, but I think it was too bogged down in the X-Mythos to truly be enjoyable to mainstream audiences. The fact I just don't like Wolverine was also working against it.

It isn't X-men if it isn't convoluted as hug.

I'm glad time travel and potential future rewrites are making their way to the big screen. This old cast meets new is awesome and an amazing way to get us a current X4. I've said it before and its still true.

Spiderman 2 was already the best Spiderman movie and the extra footage in 2.1 helps flesh some of the narrative out.

If you didn't like 2 then you probably wouldn't enjoy 2.1 (also, what's wrong with you? icon-arcee.gif )

Admittedly it's been several years, but I could have sworn they made a big deal about how the arms utilized advanced Artificial Intelligence and Otto had built basically a "restraining bolt" into the mechanism so the AI wouldn't override his will. It was big, red, and glowy. And they made a point of showing it going "boom" during the accident that fused the arms to his body and killed his wife.

Also the part at the end where Otto literally talks his arms down from violence. "Listen to me!"

This is correct. Though they weren't "evil" per say, they were just programmed to carry out their goal of achieving a sustained fusion reaction and didn't care how dangerous it would be.

I can understand that but I think the circumstances should be looked at as well. In the fight with Doc Ock on the train, his mask is practically wasted as it was. When Peter took it off, he probably felt that it was a distraction at that point because of that. As for the new movie, I don't recall any instance of Peter removing his mask that didn't seem within reason. Of course the reason for doing maskless scenes as far as movie making goes is so that the audience can see the actors emote. Whereas in the comics/cartoons they can give the mask facial expressions, they can't do that in a live action movie.

Except that totally disregards the reasons behind wearing a mask in the first place. Peter's always been shown to being hyper-sensitive towards the dangers of super heroics, and he's practically obsessive over his mask.

Heck, he was so desperate for a mask shortly after getting rid of his Symbiote, he went out in public wearing a paper bag on his head.

On the other hand, Dredd bombed, despite the character correctly keeping his helmet on at all times, and being bloody brilliant, so maybe they have a point with the maskless stuff.

I mean sure, I think the fact that marketing dropped the ball had far more to do with that box office failure, but then again it's gotta be harder to sell a guy you can't see the face of (and what little you can is in a state of perma-scowl), than a recognisable human being to the general public.
