Re: Animal Crossing!

Just read news about Nintendo apologizing that they probably wont be able to get the Switch + Animal Crossing bundles out on time as promised, due to the corona virus possibly delaying manufacture.
So I ain't got anything positive to add, sorry :p

Re: Netflix: Ghost in the Shell - Sac 2045...

I don't completely agree with this, as this seems more a stylechoice to me rather than something to do with budget. Cause, imo, the quality isn't bad. It just doesn't fit GitS That said, Ghost in the Shell was so renowned around the world for its super awesomely drawn intro (and of course the rest, ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

At the very least, George had a vision where he wanted the story to go. The execution of it might be poor (poor dialogue plagues all the movies), but at least it was a coherent story (even if the prequel trilogy conveniently forgot about a lot of character interactions in the original trilogy) . Whe...

More trailer.

This kinda flew under the radar for me.
On one hand excited to get an actual sequel to SAC, but on the other, the execution :facepalm:
I dont mind 3dcg per se, but this looks way too pixar-esque to me. Too clean, too kiddy.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Thanks for that, kinda guessed it would be covered outside the movies. But yeah, my main concern is how you put it "beating the superweapon cliche into the ground" It totally undermines how special and how big of a threat the Death Star was. Now its become "just another superweapon&qu...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Thats my sentiment exactly, and not just with the prophecy. I have this a lot more with the Death Star. Especially since Rogue One. The Death Star was supposed to be the ultimate weapon, ensuring the Empire's rule. It played a part in the prequels too, how Dooku had to secure the plans and bring em ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

*Light spoilers, heavy spoilers in spoilertags* Binged the Mandalorian last weekend. So far I've enjoyed all new stuff from Star Wars, BUT the new trilogy. Han Solo was a bit predictable, like they checked of a checklist for all the things we know about Han Solo to be included. Like how he got his l...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

^ I haven't seen much Star Wars, as mentioned, so my knowledge is kinda low, but what is the problem with the Star Ramp? In viii a rebel ship makes a hyperspace jump into the badguy's flagship, severely damaging it. It looks really cool, but it simply breaks what was established before. If this is ...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I dont frequent those boards and i don't look at imdb/rottentomatoes/metacritic, as those scores rarely match my own opinion. I've seen all three movies with same group of friends. This is all anecdotal ofcourse, but general sentiment of vii, was that it was kinda unoriginal. Lots of redo of the pre...

A DOS doesn't have to be on purpose. It can happen when for example, some spambot is being overly zealous and requests too much from the server in a small span of time. Or some bug/error in software, causing to poll the site in an infinite loop. Or simply too much traffic. A DDOS tho (extra d for di...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Weird? I think most people thought that Ep VII was "ok", but hated on VIII and IX. I dont hear much praise about VIII, personally i think its the least one of the three. Unneccesary casino scene and characters (like the codebreaker, i like Benicio Del Toro, sad to see that he also got a sh...

So back to Virm anyway?
I just hope they are designed better, cause they just looked unoriginal and mashed together in the anime.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Nah Finn was supposed to be paired with that Asian chick, but somehow that caused so much backlash (other than it was extremely poorly written, i dont get the hate towards her), so they dropped that and gave her only a 10 second scene. Just like the Codebreaker, all sorts of new characters ...

Well sort of. That was the story of Darth Plagis, or at least, being able to manipulate life or give life. Darth Sidious (emperor) tried getting those secrets from him and killed him. Tho he didnt manage to get those secrets. Fan theory goes that his experimenting with these powers caused the Force ...

Re: Code Geass

I really loved anything about Code Geass, also Akito the Exiled.
Havent seen this movie yet tho, imo, it doesn't really fit in a movie.
As you mentioned, I expect it to be way too rushed in a movie.

I'll pick it up soon tho.

Spoilers! I saw it 2 days ago. After TLJ, I had very low expectations and still kinda managed to be disapointed. Its just a flurry of "cool" scenes after one another. Fancy locations and planets (the CGI is pretty). It feels like you are watching a really milked weekly tv series, ...
