  1. Typical "You don't like it cause it gotz women!" response to actual legit crticism towards this movie. Sony's ploy is unfortunately working.
  2. The game is up!

      I didn't know the movie had such idiot fans.  I was under the assumption that critics and fans alike just didn't like it.

      It's just a movie man.

  3. Well I don't even care about the character whatsoever, so what I said there was really misinformed. My bad. I was just dismissing the notion Thunderbolt's feelings for Eggman was ever romantic. Not like that would go over well with Sega anyway.
  4. ^True. It's worshipping, obsession and possible SS made to be believed as 'respect' by Thunderbolt.
  5. I take Thunderbolt's adoration for Eggman akin to an employee who likes to make her boss happy by doing her best at her job. Just because one's a girl, the other's a guy, and they get along well, doesn't mean they are in love. Platonic heterosexual relationships founded on respect for each other can exist after all.
  6. I like how the two headpieces on the helmet actually matches his tails.
  7. Yeah, they're basically using the massive dislike ratio both trailers have gotten to their advantage by skewering it so people will think it's purely because it's an all-female cast when that's far from the case. I heard Fox essentially did the same with Fan4stic with the whole Michael B. Jordan being cast as Johnny Storm controversy. Twisting it into a matter of racism and racism only, and look how that turned out for the film. Even people looking forward to the film has to find this shady and pathetic for Sony to do for damage control.
  8. Or just can't handle criticism and tries to blow it up as something worse than it is. I'm sorry SBR2, no offense, but this is something I have noticed about you regarding how people discuss what they don't like. I can get defensive too about my opinions on things at times, but I always try to be respectful and not make others feel bad for their different preferences. But I do not wish to take this further and make it about one member here, so, let's just try to move from this, please?
  9. Just got back from seeing Jungle Book. It was a fine film. There were some things I liked about it over the animated film (Mowgli being less of a brat, for one) but I still prefer that one to this new one.

      I still like old Mowgli for basically having that fearless, survivalist spirit, and for being a brat under the circumstances (tell a child really attached to their home that they have to leave for no reason to them and what how not rational they act). I also prefer older Baloo; new one was an asshole. xP But they knocked Shere Khan and Kaa right out of the park.

      I agree you have a point. Admittedly that only put me off in the 1967 film was Mowgli wasn't even aware of what was going on until Bahgeera told him. For a family that loved and cared for him since infancy, they didn't tell him about Shere Khan and why he had to go? They just expected the panther to break it to him? That always was kinda sketchy. 

      And yes, Mowgli's a kid, of course stubbornness can be expected in anyone else were in his position. I would not have minded too much had he been resourceful and dependable as 2016 Mowgli was. But he wasn't due to the 1967's inability to give him proper development. 

    3. Nepenthe

      Well remember, the wolves were arguing over what to do, and Bagheera just interrupted and volunteered to settle the matter. I don't think they were planning on not telling him; it just fell into place that Bagheera took over for expediency's sake.

      I do admit liking Mowgli's resourcefulness in the new film, but there's a lingering question of how a feral child even learned to do that in an environment where none of the animals were smart or physically capable enough off doing that. It makes him more useful and defined as a character, but it doesn't make sense for him to act that human. So to me it's a trade off.

  10. Might as well shut down this entire forum because "fuck discussion" altogether. You know the old "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" can only go so far after all.
  11. You when you watching a bad movie:

     

  12. I'm getting really sick of "oh it's just a trailer guys, don't judge till it comes out!" By all accounts, a trailer, teaser or not, is supposed to include the best parts or selling points of the product. If nothing about it looks fun, interesting, or even funny, then we as viewers have the right to criticize It as well as supporters have their right to love it. And yeah, if the trailer is released very late and mere months away from release, then that only gives the impression that the publisher doesn't care or have confidence in their product.
  13. Holy shit, State Puff Marshmallow Man just creeping in on you like that through that window is rather unnerving. And sadly scarier than anything this new game and franchise will offer.
  14. Wow, they're really banking on this all-female Ghostbusters team as some hot shit and being super-duper famous after this film, huh? That will only make me revel in it's inevitable failure even more. EDIT: Then again, it's funny to consider that we don't even get to play as any of them for these sequel/tie-games. Even if we could consider these ladies were actually good at their job, wouldn't it make sense if they were the main focus of these games and not just pull that "And after they saved the city they went to do this and that?"

      I reccomend a dicionary.  Its neccesary for those dificult to spell words.

      Never using the English language on the SSMB ever again. That way, nobody can understand me, and ultimately, everyone will assume I am spelling the words correctly. Profit!

  16. Well it's at least on par with how the previous two trailers for the movie were shown. Pure, unfunny shit. Not sure if I should be unsurprised or just disappointed. Maybe both
  17. Yeah, let's kill off the main character and popular mascot of a video game-based comic and give it over to one that anyone outside the US barely knows or cares for. Nevermind Sega giving it one big, "FUCK no!" Not even Penders could be that daft. I hope.
  18. Cool! I've been updated to Dedicated Friend! Thanks everybody! :)

  19. I don't get this logic at all. Robotnik/Eggman is the only character who is allowed to be human simply because he's the series's main villain and have to reinforce that tired "humans = bad, animals = good" cliche? By that logic, I guess Nack can't be a bad guy had he not been a forgotten character. Again, I don't think humans existing by default isn't nor should be the problem here. What matters is how they're written and how they serve their role. Minor, that's fine, but major like the main cast, then we might have an issue.
  20. I blame Sonic X and 06' for souring people on the idea we can human, nay, well-written human characters. Yes, Prof. Pickle was awesome and he served his role in Unleashed well, but let's face it, he's a minor blip on people's radar whereas the likes of Chris and Elise have been more infamous examples on how human characters can be intrusive and poorly done. Not to mention that both were actually major characters in their respective stories and not minor like Pickle was. It's a shame too since I don't mind having humans and anthros co-existing in the same setting. Though given with Hollywood and the likes of Transformers, I fear we might be just getting X all over again and make them have more prominence than the actual characters we came to see.

      "Looks at reviews"...

      Now don't try to kid me critics, I'll make a deal with you.

      What I desire, that you're no liar, and the Jungle Book is good.

      First The Forze Awakens, then Zootopia and now The Jungle Book. And from the looks of things, arguably Civil War as well.

      Disney on critical winning streak.
