  2. So the general consensus for Batman: Hush (the movie) from what I'm seeing on IMDB is "mixed to negative."  Is this a fair assessment?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Absolutely fair, it’s a decent movie for the majority of it, but they kill the story in the last half by making tons of utterly baffling stupid changes, including changing Hush’s actual identity.

      I finished watching it.

      riddler is hush

      it takes place in the new 52 continuity

      The annoying part is that like... there's a lot that I actually LIKE about it.  In terms of production value, it's a huge step up from DC's other DTV outings.  The animation is quite good and even excellent in places, and the music is fantastic.  The voice acting is pretty good with some exceptions.  I usually don't like Jason O'Mara's Batman but he was really good here.  And I even thought the first hour of the movie was decent.  Not great, but was a decently okay adaptation.  I legit thought I was going to have the unpopular opinion and actually like this movie.

      THEN THE RIDDLER IS HUSH PART CAME IN.  And in less than 30 minutes, they managed to undo all the good the entire first hour of the movie had.  Like, just that revelation alone completely killed the entire rest of the movie for me.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Basically my thought. It’s like reverse Killing Joke where the first half hour kills the good will that the last hour has, only here, the last half hour kills the first hour’s good will.

    6. Tara

      Tara

      On that note, I was really hoping it would take the bad taste of The Killing Joke out of my mouth but instead it made it worse.

    7. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Yuup.

      Hush was my Killing Joke. Like, I love KJ as a story, but Hush is my all time favourite. I’ve wanted this film for years, especially after Under the Red Hood. I hate what they did with it.

      Man those changes were quite the riddle.

      (Wait how was Nightwing dicked over? Haven't seen it, heard it was trash)

    9. Tara

      Tara

      I'm assuming he means the part where Nightwing is poisoned by Scarecrow's venom and then unceremoniously disappears from the movie entirely.

    10. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      The DCAM really hates Nightwing for some reason.

    11. Ryannumber1gamer

      Exactly that part.

    12. Milo

      Milo

      lol so they pulled a killing joke on this adaptation?

    13. Tara

      Tara

      I would at least say that Hush is better than The Killing Joke.  Like, as bad as the last thirty minutes are, and as bad as the stupid plot reveal is, the animation is still better, the music is still better, and it's still probably the best animated interpretation of Bruce and Selena's relationship.  Like I've never been a big fan of Batman and Catwoman as a couple (bar their forced separation at the end).  More specifically, I never saw them as a "settle down and get married" type couple and always saw them more like Scrooge McDuck and Goldie.  Two people who love or at least lust after each other, but constantly screw each other over because of how selfish they are.  And even if Nightwing gets the short end of the stick again, I really like his snarky but supportive attitude here.  Like, the way he's so happy about Bruce getting a girlfriend is so pure and I love it.  It's just that all those good things are undone in the last half hour by that god damn stupid plot twist.

      The Killing Joke's main problem (the Bat sex problem) is a very big one and I would honestly consider it more offensive in terms of like... how they disrespect a legacy character by painting her as hormonal and incompetent.  But while I did enjoy the second half of The Killing Joke when it first came out, my views on it have sort of shifted in subsequent watches, because it's just such a bleak, bland movie lacking in personality or inspiration.  Especially when you compare it to the comic and see all the tiny little details that make up the emotional core of the narrative that the movie just completely skims over.

  3. What I'm about to ask may possibly be controversial and offend many people.  It may divide families and cause the fragile pillar or our society to collapse from under our feet.  But please know I'm only asking it with the best of intentions.

    Does Darkwing Duck ever get any better?  I've been marathoning Disney ducks lately and I'm about five episodes into Darkwing and I thought the pilot was extremely strong.  It had stakes, had great comedic timing, deep emotional conflict.  But the three episodes that I've watched immediately following it are kind of... just feel like really long Looney Tunes shorts.  Feels like an enormous step down from what the pilot had offered.

    To clarify, nothing about the show is BAD so far.  Just not what I had been expecting.  Any Darkwing fans able to weigh in here?

  4. Capcom Disney games that need a DuckTales Remastered treatment:

    -DuckTales 2 (though to be fair, last I played that game, it controlled so well and had a surprisingly solid visual presentation for a NES game, so it holds up extremely well today I think)

    -Goof Troop

    -The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey and Minnie

    -Alladin (either SNES or Genesis version; and yes, I'm aware of the bundle that was released recently)

    -Darkwing Duck

    -Disney/Pixar's Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Symphony of the Night  3 & Knuckles featuring Dante from the Devil May Cry series DS Live and Reloaded, No Lootboxes Edition*

  9. Linkin Park - Numb lyrics

    When I ripped... my pants.

    I thought that I had everyone on my side.

    But then I blew it... all sky high.

    And now she won't even spare a passing glance.

    All because I... ripped my pants.

    When Big Larry came around just to put him down

    SpongeBob turned into a clown

    And no girl ever wants to dance

    with a fool who went and... ripped his pants.

    I know I shouldn't mope around, I shouldn't curse.

    But the pain feels so much worse.

    'Cause winding up with no one is a lot less fun

    Than a burn from the sun

    Or sand in your buns.

    (guitar solo)

    Now I learned a lesson I won't soon forget.

    So listen and you won't regret.

    Be true to yourself, don't miss your chance

    And you won't end up like the fool who ripped his pants.

  22. [Rambling]

    This will probably sound more melodramatic than I intend it to be, but although I've been mostly jokey about the whole thing, I think today, I've finally reached my breaking point with this series.

    Like I'm not trying to make one of those really obnoxious, theatrical "I'M LEAVING THE FANBASE!" type posts, just expressing my feelings on this whole ordeal.  I've been a fan of Sonic literally all my life.  I can't think of a time when I've not been a fan.  And I've been pretty lenient on a lot of the series' missteps, no matter how massive.  But now that I no longer rely on family to buy me video games for birthdays and Christmas and now buy this stuff myself, there's a much greater sense of buyer's remorse when this series takes a massive step downward as with Shattered Crystal/Rise of Lyric and Forces.

    Lately, I just feel like there's MUCH better things to be doing with my time, money, and energy, so I can't even really enjoy a lot of recent Sonic stuff with even morbid curiosity.  Of course, I'll still be buying things that do look genuinely impressive.  But I guess to make a long story short, I think I'm done with Sonic in a general sense.  Probably won't be keeping up with him on a regular basis as I used to and probably won't buy anything from the series unless it looks really compelling.  I'm not leaving this site or anything, though.  Just don't think I'll be frequenting Sonic discussion as much unless there's a really interesting conversation.

    Again, not really trying to make some grand statement or anything with this.  Just rambling for no reason is all!

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      Honestly the Sonic Discussion section hasn't been a section I've frequented regularly for years now unless a new game is coming, but I stick around this site because of you people. Being burned by the franchise doesn't mean you have to leave the forum entirely

    2. Tara

      Tara

      @Ferno, oh absolutely.  That's why the Chit Chat and video games forums are here after all.  I just added the "I'm not leaving" section because I didn't want people to think I was lol.

      This is exactly where I was at as soon as I started buying my own games so I feel you. No need to waste hard earned money on nonsense just to fly the Sonic flag

    6. Tara

      Tara

      I used to get some of the bad games mostly because I used to enjoy dissecting them and seeing what worked and didn't.  It's not that I no longer like do that, but now that I buy them myself, I no longer see the games as standalone pieces to be examined, but how they stand in relation to the price tag and all the things I could have bought instead of it, which really takes a lot of the fun out of the examination.

    7. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      These days I'm more into Sonic for fan content, mostly fan art and fan games. Far as official games... I just stick to buying only the rare good Sonic games such as Sonic Mania... I didn't even bother buying Sonic Forces. And I really doubt I'll drag myself to see the awful live action movie... which hurts me to say that as I wanted a in theaters Sonic movie far back as the 90s... however my old wish included it being fully animated obviously.

    8. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      For a while I've basically been following this series with the drive of what it could be and never along the lines of what it is. The last time I really felt excited (with no strings attached) for something Sonic related was... Generations.

    9. Wraith

      Wraith

      Yeah I follow a shitton of fanartists and stuff on Twitter and I like headcanon and stuff.

      But I don't actually own Lost World or Forces and probably never will. Sonic Mania is fun but I've had my fill of it.

      @PaddyFancy You're missing the bigger issue that this is from a flashback to the 80s.

    7. Tara

      Tara

      @Blue Blood, actually the episode explicitly mentions it as a flashback to the 90's... which creates some pretty big continuity errors in its own right, but...

    8. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      At least Amy's no longer trying to touch him in a place or way that makes him feel uncomfortable.

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Tara I've never seen the episode personally, but back when it was new I people talking about it being a 80s flashback. But the episode is quite literally called "that 90s show" after two seconds of research.

    10. Tara

      Tara

      It's an understandable mistake, because the episode takes place during a period of time that (in the context of the series) SHOULD take place in the 80's.  The shifting timescale in the series is pretty lazily done.
