I tend to think of Magic: The Gathering now as the game Richard Garfield had to create in order to get RoboRally published. I hope this new doc at least touches on that.

Consoles aren’t trivial purchases for most of us, and never have been. Hell, the Atari VCS was $199 when it launched, and that was in 1977 - that’s well over $800 in today’s money.

Agreed on all points, especially about a negated sacrifice often losing weight but not always. The big one for me is Spock (the original, classic Spock). After dying in Star Trek II, he’s resurrected in Star Trek III and returns for several more movies and a TNG two-parter, but his sacrifice in Trek II still hits me Read more

Never mind dead parents. I want to see the MCU embrace its Disney-ness by giving us an honest-to-goodness, full-blown musical.

If it were a few years ago, maybe, but in 2020, after “bury your gays” exploded the way it did some years ago? I think Disney is savvy enough to realize that won’t fly well now, and I don’t think Feige wants that, anyway.

FWIW, Raiders of the Lost Ark is still just Raiders of the Lost Ark in the actual movie. They began using the standard “Indiana Jones and the...” form on video packaging and posters and the like a couple decades ago, apparently so video rental stores and retailers would group it together with the other Indy movies Read more

The audiences I saw it with in the theater back in the day loved that line. It was probably one of the funniest moments in the entirety of Trek cinema.

I’m still waiting to play the first one! Has it really been that long?!

Honestly, I’m kind of surprised a My Little Pony / Transformers crossover comic hasn’t already happened before this. It seems like something that would have been done five or six years ago.

Well, aren’t we all, really?

At least Twilight Sparkle, Spike, Starlight Glimmer, et al. have some idea idea about humans and our everyday tech already, thanks to their journeys into the alternate reality of the Equestria Girls spin-offs (even if the humans of that world are still candy-colored and have names like Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie).

FWIW, Collider’s reviewer is much more positive, with a few things that seem to directly contradict this (re: the job system, or building upon the lore and showing more of the world beyond just what the series and film show). He admits to a biasing Dark Crystal fandom (as do I), but he both describes the game and what Read more

A sad day, but I’m grateful for his contributions to many movies we love, and I assume he at least led a full and interesting life, for we we can be thankful. Read more

I like Willow just fine, but then I’m a diehard lover of Lucasfilm in general. YMMV.

Absolutely. So many of my favorite geeky movies were made in the ‘80s on budgets of $30 million or less. Granted that $30 million in, say, 1982 is probably more like $90 million now, but even so, there still just weren’t many movies made for the equivalent of well over $100 million now, but these days there are plenty Read more

Heck, I’d love to see both of those things happen in live-action. She-Hulk has already gotten to do stuff like fourth-wall-breaking and crazy references and such in the comics, even though she was set in the main Marvel comics universe and most other Marvel characters don’t get to do all that all the time; I’d be Read more

Personally, I’d be fine replacing the words “Star Trek” in the headline with the words “the world and everything in it”.
