Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

It also explains why the tune and melody sounds so lazily like a pop-song. During production they probably had to rewrite a more developed song’s score just to make it sound happier, and simply wet with whatever pop-song chord progression came to mind first.

Actually, the song and lyrics were written while she was a villain, but John Lasseter didn't have the heart to make her an out-and-out villain once he listened to it, as it made her seem too sympathetic. He loved the song too much to cut it, and so they rewrote a lot of the script around the song.

That's pretty much how the writing process works, though ten years ago Elsa would have been a villain, just a very sympathetic one.

Unfortunately, that's the only one that's really worth watching. The Yellow Submarine was mostly without the Beatles' involvement at all, Let It Be was a documentary of the split-up in the making, and everything else was just them running around like idiots with some bits of them lip-syncing their songs. They stopped making movies because they broke up, with the Let It Be documentary being pretty much a slow-motion trainwreck. I guess watching them run around acting goofy could be fun, but these were really low budget (Magical Mystery Tour looked like it was filmed entirely on an abandoned airfield, and the bus just driving in small circles), definitely something that can be entertaining if you're high or something. I'm glad they stopped making stuff like that, but too bad they didn't do more stuff like Hard Day's Night, which was a totally legit movie, even if it was made for the soul purpose of promoting an upcoming album.

Besides Yellow Submarine, I've only seen Help!. Been wanting to see A Hard Day's Night for years now, someday I'll be sure to. I owe it to myself being a huge Beatles fan since my preteen years, darnit!

I guess it worked, as I hadn't bought any Beatles music before then - though I still didn't until Rubber Soul. But I saw Hard's Day's Night with Marianne Faithfull.

For Japan and China to make an anime together.

For that matter, i wish Chinese animation wouldn't have seen itself affected by the cultural revolution an continued to evolved in the direction they had back in the 60's or so.

Yeah, I should have explained better I've seen all of the movies they've done. The only one I haven't really watched that much was "Let it Be" because its just sad and super tense. It has its moments but it feels like the super awkward Thanksgiving dinner where Timmy comes back from college with his new boyfriend and everybody just doesn't want to bring up how put out they are by it even though they are and just don't want to say anything.

Hahah, don't underestimate how amused I could be by the Beatles running around acting like goofballs. "Help" I've kind of gone back and forth on even though its funny in parts and it has a lot of
:misato_service:* but the Beatles were kind of phoning it in at that point. Apparently they spent a lot of their off-time smoking weed and messing up their takes (Ugh, those outtakes would have been hilarious to watch) and "Magical Mystery Tour" is kind of ineptly charming. Its not a well-made movie but it has its moments despite the limitations of making a movie but not really knowing how.

I guess what I mean is I wished they made another movie on the same caliber of A Hard Day's Night before they broke up or got sick of being Beatles in general.

A couple like korrasami or bubbline but that is allowed to actually be canon without having to hint but not show (Korrasami) or keep it contained to the comics and only barely mention it cause CN are dicks (Bubbline).

Seriously if you don't want to have gay characters in your show that's fine but don't create ambiguosly gay characters and then not follow up on that, cause nobody likes queerbaiting.
Or in the case of these two examples: hey Nick and CN people would respect you more if you would let the writers do what they wanted.

The one thing that might bring me back to watching LoK is if that happened. And I totally want Marcy and PBubbs to be more than just best friends. But they won't.

Don't blame Nick and Cartoon Network for something they can't do. The only way to get non-hetero characters in mainstream channels aimed at children would be if the majority of parents thought that their children should be exposed to such themes. But even the ones in support of LGBT might think their children aren't ready for the exposure and might cause problems, especially in cases where non-heteronormative elements weren't in the original premise of the show.

I'd like a Cartoon Network (because the shows on Nick bore me) show where non-hetero characters are featured prominently (and make out passionately). But for something like that to air on Nick or CN, they'd have to be in a position where such a move wouldn't cause trouble for them. We aren't quite there yet. The best we can hope for a little nods from the creators.

I also want Grant Morrison's movie proposals to actually get made into movies. It's a crime that Mark Millar's comics (except the first Kick-Ass movie) are getting adapted and his scripts are stuck in development hell.

Hey guys any new hopes you want to share? Did any of your previous ones come true?

A few of mine did...
View Original Postmovieartman wrote:Comics - For Martian Manhunter to get his own ongoing series and soon, with a high class artist. (Ivan Reis?)
Came true!, He got a 12 issue series which just wrapped up last week. Reis was not on art but Eddy Barrows did damn good work on the title.
SPOILER: Show

Film - For Marvel to never make a Civil War movie.
Did not come true but I am thankful for such as its clear they made something better then the comic series they adapted.

Tv - For Justified season 6 to be its greatest season and be a perfect end to the series
It wasn't its greatest season but it was great and the last scene in the finale was a perfect ending.

Film - For Interstellar to be amazing.
Tv - For the rumors of Netflix picking up Longmire to come true.
Came true!


Film - For Star Wars Ep8 to not rehash or even homage Empire much beyond Rey/Kylo training.
Film - For legendary to get a great director on Godzilla 2 & have ALOT more screen time for Godzilla in it.
Film - For Superman to not become a injustice style tyrant in the Justice League films as the future scenes in BVS implied & to have his characterization become much less dour and be given a lot of happier hopeful moments after his revival.
Film - For Wonder Woman & Justice League Part 1 to be be received and reviewed far better then MOS/BVS/SS were.
Film - For the Aquaman movie to still be made regardless.
Film - For them to get the fuck on with the Halloween reboot, focus on Suspense & atmosphere and have a more mature well acting likable cast. And make Myers a methodical unstoppable supernatural phantom again.
Tv - For True Detective to go on despite the current rumors of cancellation.

Well the NGE blu-ray set I wished for came true, unfortunately it costs an arm and a leg and lacks English subtitles so it's a no-go right now. As far as the Kojima-directed MGS6 starring The Boss, well, that's not happening for obvious reasons. Time for some new additions:

Films:

Girls und Panzer live-action movie (Japanese, not Hollywood)
Hogan's Heroes 1080p remastered blu-ray set

And since Hollywood is on the all-female reboot train...
Rambo all-female reboot (preferably with a clone of Linda Hamilton playing Rambo)
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly all-female reboot
Indiana Jones all-female reboot
The Terminator all-female reboot
Kelly's Heroes all-female reboot
Full Metal Jacket all-female reboot

Video Games:

New first-person or third-person shooters set during the following wars:
Vietnam
American Civil War
Franco-Prussian War
Spanish-American War
Korean War
World War 2 in the Italian theater of operations
World War 2 in the Pacific theater of operations
Russian Revolution
Mexican Revolution
Final Fantasy VII is being remade, all's right with the world.

I hope you enjoyed oogling the packaging for this DVD set that was supposed to be released in November 2005. This eleven year long wait has just been terrific! It'd be nice if they actually released the set, though. I'd love to watch it after playing Portal 3, right before going to New York to see the Broadway premiere of the Death Note musical.

Few new ones...
- Olivia Wilde to be cast as Domino in Deadpool 2.
- The live action Lion King is cancelled.
- Ghost in the Shell (17) to be strongly praised and loved despite whitewashing.
- Kong Skull Island to be good and to be received well so Legendary's Kajiu-verse can continue as planned.
- Same with the next universal Mummy film and their planned shared universe.

Let's see

- Stephen King's The Dark Tower epic turned into a quality TV series with Matthew Mac in it (either as Eddie or as the Gunslinger, can't decide)

- A new SEGA console with the best Virtua Fighter yet, a new Panzer Dragoon along the lines of Orta, a multiplayer Virtual On, Shen Mue 3 (this last oen is actually happening)

- The rest of Attack on Titan on anime NAO

- Radiohead to make one last record to then break up

- HD remake of Eva 1-24' and EoE which is pretty much and exact copy of the old ones, except updated to state of the art graphics&sound and fostered by a budget that could fix the next financial crisis and just a tiny bit more of explanations, to put to rest all the silly theories

- A new Alien franchise movie that can hold a candle to Aliens

- the new Ride record not to suck compared to Nowhere

- publishing of the last three Lone Wolf books

- Roger Federer to win an 8th Wimbledon title beating Nadal in the semifinals and Djokovic in the final
