General Rotors / Hi I'm new here

I'm just looking for cool people like me. Do you guys like sprite edits?

General Rotors / Movies thus far
« on: April 18, 2016, 07:16:42 AM »
Superman v Batman:
This movie is terrible and if you liked it then you're terrible. A super-powered assault on all concept of pacing, it starts fine but by the time Lex Luthor shows up everybody in the theater understands why this movie is getting crapped on more than Fant4stic. Maybe it would count as a fine adaptation of Superman Batman if you only impression of them comes from Injustice, but lacks any inspirational quality Superman should come with. Gal Gadot was a cool Wonder Woman.

10 Cloverfield Lane:
A movie about American insecurity, while not any overt tie-in with the Cloverfield lane it's a nice thematic tie since it's all about intense human emotions under apocalyptic conditions. John Goodman is Scary and has more than a couple signs that he's playing an autistic.

Colorful and fun and loud with a strong social commentary element, pretty satisfying and it left me wanting to read the book with all the concept art and design materials on the whole world developed. After Frozen and Big Hero 6 I thought Disney was overdue for a stinker but Zootopia worked. And Finding Dory looks fun.

Jungle Book
While not a colossal epic, it's pretty much a perfect cast and robust effect work making this a highlight of Disney's post-Maleficent "Live action everything" plan. Favreau has redeemed himself for Ironman 2. He still needs to work of Cowboys vs Aliens.

General Rotors / Oh god comics are awesome. (Sega/Capcom multi-crossover)
« on: February 27, 2015, 03:45:00 AM »

World's Collide, the first Megaman/Sonic crossover was solid, but 12 issues was a bit much and took 4 months, thankfully this version will have more to work with and should be done in only 3 months since now there's Sonic Boom for it to occupy.

Afterlife with Archie is also still great, even if issues take forever. I'm not bothering with Archie's Mighty Crusaders though.

General Rotors / Friends with kids.

Learning that people I know are apparently Pregnant is a sensation I have trouble coming to terms with and I am very glad I don't have to worry about personally hosting a baby inside of me.
And it would be nice if one of the people I knew having a child was in a stable relationship (although I am willing to accept non-traditional households.)
I guess this is part of becoming an adult. Although I would much rather be a cool uncle than a dad, if the unexpected happens I think I would be a pretty great dad, if I needed to be.

Any of you going to develop a litter or friends with people procreating?

General Rotors / summer movies n shit
« on: March 23, 2013, 04:48:08 AM »
G.I. Joe 2
Oh Mr. Tatum!

Great Gatsby
Shit will be SO CASH. 3D hedonism gonna drop it like it's F. Scott
From the director of Movies I Don't Want To Watch, Larz Borhman or something.

Indistinguishable Marvel Film Parts 7 and 8.
Shane Black has chops so Iron Man 3 should be good, and I think 8 is Thor 2, which I'm opimistic about since 1 was clearly holding back on it's A-Game so that the big stuff could be used in the sequels.

Superman that garden tool.
Directed by Scott Snyder, well 300 was awesome but Sucker Punch was bored me. But really I gotta go see them movie mostly because aww yeah General Zod gonna make bitches Kneel. It's what he does.

Star Trek
The sequel to JJ Abram's incredible elaborate audition tape for Star Wars.

General Rotors / movies and junk
« on: December 04, 2012, 05:39:00 AM »
So uh lots are out and more are coming.

Skyfall was good. Not as good as everybody was hoping since it had a rather simplistic plot decorated by a few superficial revelations about Bond's past.
Man it's pretty weird there's no Marvel movie this winter. STAGE TWO gonna have movies about like Paste Pot Pete and Beta Ray Bill and shit.
Great Gatsby pushed to the summer (which blows) to make room for...
The Hobbit is one of those movies that's going to be so big and everybody will have some opinion about it that I'll eventually stop caring about people's opinions about it. Only when, in hindsight, that I consider the cultural impact of the LOTR trilogy made that lasts until today, do I get excited about the Hobbit. Which has appearances by both Ian McKellan and Stephen Colbert so ::awesome::
Rise of The Guardians looks like a great movie to watch so that I will have something to talk about when I hit on the girls cosplaying that tooth fairy thing.
Apparently there's another Die Hard?
Life of Pi, more like Life of Pritentious. Actually I'm pretty sure there was a Corner Gas episode about this book.
Robocop getting delayed so that it can please the internet and better match the traditional conceptualization of Robocop as seen on my bathroom door. Consequently Toronto will remain as distopian-future Detroid for the rest of the summer, but that's still better than actual Detroit. General consensus is that I'D BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR.
We already had a thread on Wreck It Ralph.
the Bittersweet Candy Bowl movie is set to debut in 2019 and will star Bill Murray as himself.

 :love: Ruby's been dating Beanpole for like two years now. They're basically married since that's legal in their state.
 :sad: Still fat.
 :pf: I don't know who this is.
 ;D nobody ever uses these crappy default smileys.

General Rotors / Moviegeddon 2011.
« on: June 09, 2011, 09:12:47 AM »
The Hangover 2 looks like it could be potentially entertaining, even if it's not that good, Ken Jeong is inherently funny so there will be at least a few laughs. I am pretty sure that with my current lifestyle, I am going to end up living a movie like this at some point in the future.

Brides Maids is getting positive feedback to the extent that I would be willing to give it a shot if I wasn't so preoccupied.

Cars 2 - It's Pixar. Lasseter. Cars made serious merchandising bank, and I have a free ticket to this that came with my Incredibles Blu-Ray so I figure i'll go see it, even if I didn't see the first (however Andy provided me with a comprehensive synopsis).  Where's my Incredibles 2? Brad Bird doesn't care for sequels apparently.

Transformers: Dark of The Moon. Michael Bay officially apologized for #2, so I'm willing to go see this and know that at least it will be a better experience than Skyline. Bay showed Andy and I 16 minutes of insane footage, and even if it's mindless rhetoric, at least one thing in the movie is inherently entertaining. What we saw was like all the insane mech-fighting stuff from The Matrix 3 put into the movie it should have been in in the first place. An experience akin to Avatar for boys.

Paul: Wait, that's already on home video? I wanted to see this because I'll watch anything that reminds me of Spaced. Oh well. It didn't seem that good anyway. Maybe if it shows up on Netflix.

X-Men First Class: I'm seeing this today. The director of Kick-Ass with the actor from Wanted making a communally Mark Millar movie, but I read somewhere that they aren't caring about integrating the plot with X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X3, so that's a sign that they have some taste.

Captain America: The First Avenger: Is also a movie. I haven't seen much footage of this but Hugo Weaving As the Red Skull is so perfect that it isn't interesting.

Green Lantern: The first trailer looked super-dumb, and the second one I heard is much better but I never watched it. I'm going to be honest, I don't see Ryan Reynolds as being a particularly good Hal Jordan, since I couldn't stand him in Van Wilder. Maybe it will be good, maybe it'll suck. in any case, i'm glad the uniforms look like they do so it's easy to distinguish movie tie-in material from the comic series I'm 150 issues invested in.

General Rotors / throwing a party
« on: March 22, 2011, 05:14:40 AM »
I had the house to myself so I threw a party because after going to six in the last year, I knew I had to try. I invited all my friends who knew each other already and a handful of outsiders. After spending the day at the Wizard comic convention and coming home to find my bike stolen, the house slowly filled up with twenty to maybe even thirty people.

Some people were a little high, a lot of people were pretty drunk, but since it's Oakville and not Toronto, the only damage was somebody spilling a drink on a box of comics (which I didn't find out about until later).

Also there was a dude playing bagpipes while Kenney McCoy danced a merry jig before booting pat out of bed for sleeping with Kenney's girlfriend. the next day as we had a breakfast pizza, it was all agreed that a barbeque would be needed later in the year.

One outsider I brought in was my cousin who admit that she actually got along better with the girls in my group than the girls in her own group, because despite the awesome party, a good number of the people there were anime fans who squealed "eeeeee omigod omigod" when they saw my room.

Have any of you guys thrown any parties?

Do you have any experience at parties?

Oh it's shirtless o'clock.

General Rotors / Academic question regarding comics.
« on: January 18, 2011, 06:35:27 AM »
Do you guys prefer Marvel or DC?

Although I think it goes without saying that Bongo and Archie have them beat, they do not factor into this because they do not have any role in DC and Marvel's notorious rivalry.

General Rotors / Netflix suggestions.
« on: January 02, 2011, 08:47:28 PM »
While typically only DVD quality, watching Netflix on any system is such a streamlined process - and honestly not every movie really needs to be in HD in order to get the experience (usually the movies I prefer not to pay more than a dollar to see, but that subject is a derail).
However Netflix Canada's selection is... currently a little spotty.

Any of you guys have any recommendations for movies worth checking out?

General Rotors / Death to 2010
« on: January 01, 2011, 02:30:17 AM »
Happy New Year, Y'alls
what resolutions are you making?

While most of you are unfamilar with the two authors, I would think most of you would be able to identify two of the four brands involved in this crossover...

General Rotors / Dragon Ball
« on: October 25, 2010, 06:33:57 PM »
Is apparently going to be getting a continuation.

Ten years ago, I would have been euphoric about this. Since then I've basically gotten as far away from the DBZ fan mindset as it was adopted by too many people to be the best show to embarrass yourself with (until that role was taken by longer shows you can all name).

But this is still the best news for the brand since it was decided/discovered that nobody is going to hate the live-action movie (because nobody is going to see it).

Here I think it's integral to mention that if any of you are going to be internet-hilarious by making a reference to "Over 9000" then I would like you to quickly leave before you do. Fistbumps, however, are accepted.

General Rotors / Barbie Puppy Swim School Playset!!!
« on: October 03, 2010, 08:11:05 PM »
I'm a toy collector.
While I mostly buy any Transformer, I have a large number of G.I. Jones and a healthy number of Marvel Legends scale figures. I'm almost a regular at Toys R Us. I have, more than the typical american consumer, some understanding of the toy industry and how these things go from conception to production. But seeing an add on TV for this... I feel like I've been kicked back into amuteur hour.

Now I know Barbie collectors aren't especially discriminating in their purchases. The brand basically survives on taking something, making it pink, and shoving it into Barbie... packaging. And working on the theory that at any given them there's at least a half a billion ten year old girls who, so far, figure breaking down gender-roles is for Barbie to do some barbecuing (in a pink barbecue, of course). It's a tragic toy line but at least it isn't Bratz.

Barbie Puppy Swim School.

Now I'm no expert on dogs OR swimming, but my aunt owns a dog and I'm pretty sure that some time before I learned that Santa was not always real, I knew that dogs, by default, had a basic understanding of how to perform the "Dog paddle." They did not need to go to Canine Swim Academy. There are no doggie swimming races on TV, although maybe there are on youtube and I will check later. And if some dog is born without being factory set to "seaworthy" then I'm not sure the job of training my dogs is a good use of time for the girl who apparently has experience being a Canadian Mountie, a Paleontologist, and apparently also an Astronaut (pink Space Shuttle? hot.). Let's get her teen sister Skipper to do it or just call up Bwana Beast to talk to the Animals since I think Mattel has the right to DC stuff.

Was this the product of throwing darts at a board? "Puppy.... swim.... school." - was this actually a re-mold on the earlier Lobster Wrestling Barbie set? (That would be so awesome). Is the target demographic the kids who are too poor to afford the Barbie Puppy and the Barbie Swim set? (good thing, too, if she got both, the untrained dogs might drown.). Or perhaps somebody misinterpreted somebody else's suggestion for Barbie to get a tie in to the popular "Puppy Bowl" event.

Looking to understand, I decided to use one of my finite supply of Googles to go some research.
I especially like the one where somebody returned theirs because the doggy wouldn't float.

I expect that if this set does well we will soon see other brands follow suit, with Transformers who have guns where the special advertised features is they can also be used as clubs that turn into robots who look and act the same except for a preference for the Metric system. Which reminds me, somebody give me a contact with a product, because I'm pretty sure I can make a successful movie based on the idea of Barbie Puppy Swim school. After High School Musical series is over, the BPSS film writes itself!

Please Allspark, explain.

Yes that's right, I wrote this post for another message board and am copy/pasting SER my sloppy seconds.

Here's me and Lord Zedd's voice actor, Robert Axelrod. And the crappy Z-staff I made in about an hour.

Here are the Lord Zedd figures in their original packaging that he signed for me.

General Rotors / Why do people become furry?
« on: July 12, 2010, 03:31:25 AM »
I've long speculated on what the furry community offers people with attachment issues that they can't get with a real hobby and would like to know the answers and Alan isn't talking to me anymore so I'm left to speculate.

-Typically furry interest grows from interest in something like a disney or looney tunes or Sonic and just goes out of control. Like a sonic player who thought "This game was fun" when they were 5 years old and wants to recapture the Sonic experience with, instead of more videogames, more talking animals. Like they took a wrong turn because, I dunno, they suck at gaming?

-The cult/community element. It's a collective who will gladly take pretty much anybody as a member. It's a movement, a flag, a banner. It's something to do and meet people without much fear of rejection because - come on, if these people aren't ashamed to dress up as Tony The Tiger and hump they certainly can't be ashamed of your embarrassing past.

-The sexual liberty. Animals go around naked all the time and hump eachother in the wild without any hang-ups about social acceptance. They just get National Geographic all over the place and some people just got hang-ups about people sex so animal sex is the natural alternative.

-How hard can it be to be a furry? It's not like there's raw data you need to learn like Trekkies do, there's no core brand that needs to be kept up with. Just google Yiffchan or Yiffweb or Yiffzone I am making those up and say "Sally is a ho" and you're automatically best friends with the dude writing a story about Bucky O Hare who isn't Larry Hama.

So, those of you with questionable collections of bookmarks, please explain subculture aberation run rampant and please make sure to distinguish what makes being a furry better than being a member of the Transformers community or trekkie community or mac user fanbase.

General Rotors / Tell me about setting up a website.
« on: January 29, 2010, 12:56:19 PM »
Recently a friend asked me what he would need to do to get a website,
I told him I would ask some people I know who have websites.
And you guys all fit that bill.

What can you guys recommend for domain registry and hosting?
We basically just want a website with some basic php so we can post in-depth movie and comic reviews which are completely unlike the snippets of trivia that passes for a review on some parts of the internet.

General Rotors / Questions about Sonic.
« on: December 04, 2009, 12:39:36 PM »
What is Sally supposed to be anyway? Some kind of Squirrel Mouse Chipmunk thing?

Also regarding the comic, what's the deal with humanity?

Has this been mentioned here before and it somehow escaped my notice?
