Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 02:18 AM)

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

I'm fine with the humour because the rest of the universe feels legit, and it's not ten quips a minute like those bloody Marvel movies.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:11 PM)

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:20 PM)

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 01:19 PM)

I've already noticed some backlash against it over on blu-ray.com, but a lot of it seems to stem from anger about the Disney/Fox deal

Season 1 was hard to watch, I liked season 2. And lost interest season 3 onwards.

I'm not going to say that Arrow is fantastic, but it at least mildly holds my interest at its timeslot. If there was something better on, sure I'd watch that, but there isn't.

I'm mildly interested for the time being, as said the fight sequences are pretty good. Plus, from the sounds of it, at NYCC, they've got a good archery talent that has pointed out film flubs in terms of what Hollywood occasionally does.

I like a lot of things about this show. The action scenes are well filmed, it's not pulling it's punches and meandering in the PG-13 world of Smallville. It takes place in a textured urban enviroment. Merlin's cool and able to nurture a rivalry with Ollie without Smallville's "GEE I LOVE YOU CLARK THE LAST THING I EVER WANT TO HAPPEN IS FOR US TO BE ENEMIES" and while Ollie himself is quite vanilla, the show is overally fairly atmospheric.

But.

Wow, that dialogue. So many throw-away lines of exposition. It's like I started every sentence with "Hey, Allspark, I know it's been a while since I posted because I've been busy writing for a website, but I think i'll share my thoughts on the matter since you know I like to keep informed." once the info-dump quota has been filled I think this show might become pretty watchable.
Woooo!

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I liked the ending, except for the "Hey". That was dumb as hug. Just don't have him say anything and start the next episode with that scene, with some more poignant dialogue. I liked that they made Deadshot pretty comic book-y as well. Bad acting and cheesy dialogue aside, this is a pretty entertaining show. Just imagine if they manage to turn the bad parts around.

Ugh, just caught the episode on the CW's app*. Okay overall, but boy did Deadshot's eyepiece look goofy. The wrist guns were fine, but man that was really odd. Other than that particular wardrobe failure, it was generally a bland episode overall.

Well Teen Titans did call him Slade because the whole "Death" thing in his name and they had to be more kid friendly. Glad they are going with Deathstroke, but I can understand why some would say Slade.



My speculation...PURELY from the shot in the pilot of the mask and the teaser footage, that "Deathstroke" won't be an individual, but rather an identity passed around.

or that was Ravager's mask on the island thus giving Deathstroke more of a reason for hating Ollie then just I was hired to take you down or whatever

Only just saw the first ep. It was ok but I hate it that Oliver is murdering people, geez. Was Adam Hunt's security guy (the one who fought Arrow hand to hand) dead? The arrow was stuck pretty deep. Hope that guy comes back.

Ollie's dad killing the other guy then himself was kinda stupid. They could have survived together. Whatever.

Did Black Canary have a sister in comic fiction? What was Ollie's sister's name? Is it Mia with Aids Speedy from the comics? I wanna see Arrowette here.

I could google Merlyn's real name but he's set as that best friend of Ollie? Too bad.

The actor sounds weird doing his monologues. And he looks waaaay too big / bulky in his gratuitous scene. Not like a guy who was probably sorta starving on an island. Justin Hartley was leaner.

I believe the actor who plays Oliver's mom is American.

I like this show a great deal, which actually surprised me considering that I didn't really get into Smallville until after Lex and Lana left (i.e. watching it regularly).

I am curious to see where the writers and creators go with the characters other than Oliver, given that they are only based on their comic origins.

The last episode was actually pretty surprising ending.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Just as Diggs agrees to help Oliver, and serve as his conscience (considering the archer's years on the island have made him too predatorial), Laurel's dad comes in to arrest Oliver for being the archer. Even though I expect him to get out of this, it will likely make people more suspicious of him.
Knowledge combined with experience are the building blocks to enlightenment.
