I'm totally late to the party on a number of these, some by almost 10 years, but recently saw the Wonder Woman and the Dark Knight movies.

I was pretty surprised not just by their relative quality, but also content. Blood, sexual innuendo, language, and all that. I was kind of impressed.


Any recommendations for others I should see? They seem to release them fairly often.

So in case you haven't heard, Batman and Batgirl totally boink each other in the Killing Joke film.

Why? Well according to the screenwriters…

The thing about this is that it's controversial, so we added more controversy

You know when you're making a movie based off a famous comic, now's not the time to suddenly add the writing/comic trope of "Making characters do really dumb/odd/non-canonical things just cuz." to it.

Yeah. I'm pretty done with the big two right now. This movie was particularly disappointing.

Also not even sure why they bothered with the rated R considering how tame overall the content actually was.

What did you expect from Bruce Timm? He's been a huge BatmanxBatgirl shipper since he was working on BTAS. There were subtle hints in that show, then it was heavily implied in Beyond that they were dating shortly after she broke up with Dick, and now this.

There was also the Batman Beyond continuation comic, with an issue that served as flashback to the time when Bruce and Barbara were having their fling. It turns out Barbara got impregnated by Bruce, then on the same night she told him about it, she stopped a crook from mugging someone and then suffered a spontaneous miscarriage.

I shit you not.

So, with this show having it's entire season 1 released on Netflix yesterday, did anyone manage to watch it? It's being made by a group of writers/producers who worked on shows such as Justice League Unlimited and Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the animation is done by Studio Mir (same studio that did animation for The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra). I just finished marathoning the whole season and god damn, everything about it is just so damn good.

So apparently Emperor Zarkon used to be Black Lion's Paladin and still has a degree of control over it. Which explains why King Alfor split up the Lions instead of forming Voltron like Allura pleaded him to do.

And of course as soon as it turned out Pidge is a chick in disguise, the "progressive" crowd had to jump on it and claim that Pidge is actually trans. I shit you not.

You want to know what's really sad about those trans accusations? Back in the day, most girls would dress and act like boys to ESCAPE gender dogma, to be treated fairly. Meanwhile SJWs are basically preaching that dogma by automatically assuming they want to be trans, that kind of scenario only works if it's the premise of the character arc, but as an answer to just fit in with a society mired with predjudice, it's a shortcut that lacks meaningful character development. It's a fine distinguishment, one is to avoid attention and the other practically reeks for attention. Plus sex changes tend to be complicated to explain/convey if it's a kids' show/game/book…. well if you try to jam it in their heads anyways. I am not going to pretend I know the situation on this series, but disguise implies incognito intent.

You are actually correct.

SPOILER ALERT: Pidge's actual name is Katie Holmes, whose father and brother were part of a space exploration mission alongside Shiro, a guy who later becomes Black Lion's Paladin. They were kidnapped by Galran Empire, but Galaxy Patrol covered up their disappearance and claimed their ship crashed due to malfunction. Refusing to believe their claims, Katie sneaks into the HQ and discovers that indeed, the truth was covered up but before she could find out more, she is discovered and thrown out, and Patrol's director makes sure that she can't come back. In order to resume her investigation, Katie takes on the identity of Pidge Gundarsson and enrolls in Galaxy Patrol as a cadet.

So, watched a couple episodes.

Allura is what I call a "multidere". She is, by turns, tsundere, kuudere, and yandere.

Just got back from this.

If you haven't seen it yet, make plans to go. I'm obviously biased, because it's super furry, but it's easily the best film I've seen this year, and I think it'll be a serious contender for Best Animated Feature. The high points:

- It's a gorgeous film. The visuals are stunning, the animation is smooth, and there are lots of little details that make everything feel wonderfully realized.

- It's more adult-oriented than the typical Disney film and animated fare in general (i.e., Kung-Fu Panda), which results in a stronger, more coherent story. And the movie is all story; there's no filler, and no one ever breaks into song. (Ironically, this makes the soundtrack kind of forgettable, as it's all real-world pop music instead of the original orchestral pieces Disney often uses.)

- It's funny! The tone of the story is fairly dark and the film takes itself quite seriously, but there are a lot of laugh-out-loud moments to break the tension.

- The only real drawback is that the ending is kind of predictable–there's a lot of foreshadowing–and you'll see it coming before you get there.

Also, there's tons of porn on e621, if you're so inclined.

So Zootopia is now Disney's biggest box-office hit besides the Lion King and Frozen. Its not even done releasing, as it has a Japan release of April 23rd and recently opened in the UK.

Sooo yeah, maybe we might get a DVD-exclusive short or possible sequel. I mean, Frozen got a sequel.. soo..

ID: 141be  No.1373[Reply]

So is anyone else keeping up with this? It's a new sort-of series; it's planned out as six or so movies split into four episodes, and it continues onto the plot from original Digimon Adventure and 02. although the beginning of first film shows most of 02's protagonists except Takeru and Hikari being taken down by someone…

The first "film" is kind of seen as letdown by everyone, but that's mostly because it serves to set things up for the plot to take off. All of the protagonists are in high school/junior high, and there's a newcomer among the DigiDestined, along with her Digimon partner who is targeted by Alphamon and another mysterious Digimon for unknown reasons. There is also a government backed organization that monitors any occurence of Digimon appearing in the human world, and they sort-of cooperate with the DigiDestined when it is required, usually to fight off the mysteriously infected, berserk Digimon. However, the chief agent in charge of the organization may not be all that she seems…and shit seriously goes down in the second "film", further complicating things when Ken Ichijouji reappears as Digimon Kaiser.

If they do it'll be a huge time gap, ignoring the toils of time like Sonic and crew (20 year anniversary? Let's make a game where we go through time despite not having aged one bit despite saying we've been around FOR 20 FUCKING YEARS). Sort of like how Fry worked when they aired futurama on comedy central, making references to Lady Gaga despite being frozen for a thousand years. I personally hope they stay true to the timeline, but I also hope they know how to bring in the current gen without bringing in the crutches for parenthood. Did arnold ever re-unite with his parents? I can't recall for the life of me.

With the site back up and such, here's the new Gravity Falls thread.

While the 2nd season is in it's mid-season break, it's already been quite a ride. Alex Hirsch has stated that everything will be different afterwards, and if we thought the mid-season finale was crazy, we're gonna' have our faces melted off in the next half of the season.

Double Post, but I figure it's appropriate considering the important news.

It's been one crazy season, but Alex Hirsch has confirmed Gravity Falls is coming to a end.

http://shmalexsmirsch.tumblr.com/post/133619326491/goodbye-gravity-falls

I have to applaud the reasonings why, it's refreshing to have a series fully planned out to have a beginning, middle and end. Not to mention have it go out with a bang and not overstay it's welcome, all good things must come to a end after all.

So there'll just be two more episodes, the upcoming Weirdmageddon II: Escape from Reality and the hour long Weirdmageddon III to finish it off. Considering Weirdmageddon Part 1 was off the chain and we now know the writers knew this was the end, we're in for one hell of a ride.

ID: 012bf  No.1198

And thus, a magical summer adventure is over, and all things were neatly wrapped up.
That finale was fucking perfect, and when Alex said someone's gonna die in the final episode, he didn't lie.

Hirsch has supposedly concluded it and said it's done, but even though Disney owns it, I doubt they would try to make a sequel without him, since he voiced a great number of characters.

It looks like there's one more mystery to be solved:

The closing shot of the series is the picture to the left: what appears to be a life-sized Bill Cipher statue resting somewhere in the woods.

As Dipper and Mabel ride the bus back home, a cipher can be seen written on the back window. Bill provides the key during his death throes (see >>1199), and the translated message reads as follows:

HIDDEN DEEP WITHIN THE WOODS A BURIED TREASURE WAITS. SECRETS LOST AND STATUES FOUND BEYOND THE RUSTY GATES.

This clue, along with comments on Alex Hirsch's Twitter feed, have led fans to conclude that the Bill statue is in fact a real artifact, and has been hidden somewhere in Oregon. The leading candidate is a tourist attraction called the "Oregon Vortex," which is what pops up if you enter "Gravity Falls, Oregon" into Google Maps, but the Vortex is currently closed and isn't due to open until March 1.

Fans on reddit, tumblr, 4chan, and Twitter are preparing to mount expeditions to this and other suggested sites in Oregon over the weekend to see if they can locate the statue.

As someone on Twitter mentioned: "40 years is a bit long to steal the plot from Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas, guys."

It's got some cute moments but I can't help think it's too generic. These are the cats who made Despicable Me and the best you can come up with is Animal-American Idol?

Other points: Universal is going to cut Illumination's nuts off if this doesn't do as well as Minions. And it won't, because it's opening the week after Star Wars: Rogue One. No one's going to go see it, just like no one saw equally piss-water Norm of the North when it opened a week after The Force Awakens.

I figured since quite a few of us liked the FNAF Don Bluth inspired pictures, it'd be prudent to post this indiegogo project for a Dragon's Lair Returns Pitch Presentation. So far it's $45k away from it's initial goal.

I thought this was on Kickstarter before.

Yeah, that's super duper skeevy. Sounds like Bluth's looking for a payday, and when no movie materializes he can blame it on "the studio fat cats with no soul or imagination".

Studios are interested in anything that will make them money.

It's just harder to make money with traditional animation. Bluth would have to show them cost and profit projections, not a cinematic, and cost and profit projections don't cost a quarter of a million dollars.

So he tried it previously on kickstarter? Interesting.

>>1144

If this were aimed at a modern crowd perhaps, but this is a nostalgia project. That is it's own bank breaker, depending on the franchise.

>>1145

I'm not too informed on the inner workings of a pitch project, but I think the real question that has to be asked is if traditional animation is cost effective compared to more modern means of animation. I highly doubt he's going to hire a korean studio sweatshop to do the hard labor either.

ID: d7d92  No.1147

>>1145
>>1146

It depends on what he's going for. If he's pushing a traditional, hand drawn project, he's going to find few ears listening no matter how much money he puts into a pitch. The major studios have shutdown their traditional animation operations.

Everything is at least digital now.

Now if he's just going for a traditional style, but rendered on computers, he's got a much better shot at appealing to some of the studios.

That's just the nuts and bolts of the movie. Content wise, how willing are studios going to be to take on Dragon's Lair subject matter in the current cultural climate?
