Lego Movie was Awesome
GotG film coming up looks Awesome
The comics nobody likes getting cancelled is Awesome
New Episodes for good shows are Awesome
Wakfu kickstarter hitting all its stretch goals for the OVAs and special episode is Awesome
Simon's new vanilla art is Awesome

A lot of kids still want toys and they always will. Just because we tend to grow out of it doesn't mean everyone has. Sure, kids today have a lot more than those back then like video games, tablets, and the internet, but that doesn't mean they will like toys any less because of that stuff.

Well someone gave Mario Gully a copy of Blacksad.

He has a Kickstarter for a comic called Dirty Bones

>New Bark City, Growlsville. This is an epic tale of a mutt by the name of Rover - an ex "Gangster" that gave up his life on the streets to embark on a quest of self discovery while standing up against the segregation between the mutts and the pedigrees. Rover quickly finds out that life in the city has changed as Dirty, the notorious "BIG DAWG", has taken control of New Bark City by force and is now fighting a vicious turf war with Madam Kitty for ultimate power. It's a dog-eat-dog world and no animal is safe in this adventure of romance, gangsters, tommy-guns, fast cars and flea bitten varmints! DIRTY BONES, where every dog has it's day!

I was under the impression the show was CGI to begin with thanks to some of the early promo materials, and was thrown when I'd heard the show was supposedly going to be anime-style. Now that it's (seemingly) confirmed for CGI... well I guess it's back to my original expectations, so I'm not really flummoxed. And hey, as long as they do it well, that's the most important thing.

I love how Campbell claims that the people that gave the most should suck it up because they are rich white people and as such they paid for the people who gave less.

It sucks that he miscalculated how much the whole thing would cost him, for that much he has my pity, being a writer or an artist or whatever doesn't make you an expert on finances. But it's fucking ridiculous that he hsi blaming everybody but himself, and trying to turn this clusterfuck he's gotten into some absurd statement about the system and the evils of The Man.

campbell's struggle with depression and her hallucinogen addiction/abuse has been well documented and discussed in public spaces. campbell is having a breakdown as a result of having to deal with horrible unplanned money issues that included publishers screwing her over repeatedly, desperately trying to find a place to live to get away from her abusive roommates, surgery that forced her to live off her kickstarter money and a crapton of other just absolutely shitty things (including a house that might have burned down).

It won on more than simple company clout. If you didn't like the film, fine, but it had plenty going for it beyond 'company packaging'.

The academy has long been full of snooty assholes like that. It's nothing new.

It didn't win because of apathy. Out of the three people who actually cast a vote, the choice was unanimous. If the rest of the people charged with voting actually cared enough to acquaint themselves with what they were supposed to vote upon, it seems like a safe bet the majority would still have favored Frozen.

Nonsense. All experts from various countries writing for different newspapers, I've read the same thing in English, German and Polish, who know a thing or two about the how the Academy "ticks", said Best Picture will be down to: 12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club and Gravity.

American Hustle was never a contender, the fact that it didn't win a single Oscar despite 10 nominations, proves most of the 6000 something voters didn't think much of it. Not saying it wasn't a good movie, just that what you think you saw, can't be correct.

I am reallly, really late to the party

But I seriously don't get all the butthurt about Frozen getting an Oscar. It was a cute movie with catchy songs and great looking CGI animation. I've seen some people (in this thread even) saying that Disney once again pulled an Oscar... but this actually is their first one. No, Pixar doesn't count as part of Disney Studios.
>> No. 224772

From what I gathered, it was that of the judges who voted for the category, most hadn't even seen any of the movies, or hadn't seen all of them and abstained from voting. Frozen is a good movie, and it's worthy of the award, but it also benefited from it being the only one that stood a chance at all because of the judges' lack of familiarity with (and in one judge's case, dismissal of) animation.
>> No. 224774
Wonder if they took a hint from the recent Mickey shorts.
Not sure about the new characters thing. I just wanna see some old school stuff with classic animation and just enough story to start the slapstick.
>> No. 224776
Yeah, Frozen is great, and BETTER than a return to form for Disney because it shows them managing to both make a great movie again AND overturn some of the things that had been getting stale about their older works. If it had won because those judges had seen all the movies and decided it was the best among them, I wouldn't be at all upset about it winning.

The flagrant contempt for the medium of animation by the judges is what stings. Not who they chose as the winner. The fact of the matter is that based on what we're reading, Frozen would've won even if it had been mediocre.

That doesn't just sting because it means the others never had a chance, it also devalues Frozen's win. If anything, people who thought Frozen deserved the award should be more mad than people who don't think it did, because the environment in which Frozen won means that there is absolutely no reason to be proud of the win.
>> No. 224778
> The flagrant contempt for the medium of animation by the judges is what stings.

You are exaggerating. Out of the seven interviewed Academy members only one was really like that. And those who did not watch all the nominated movies, decided to abstain from making a vote. Which was the right thing to do.

Of course you could assume that those who voted for Frozen did not watch any of the other movies, but even if that was the case (which we have asbolutely no way to know), ignorance isn't contempt.
>> No. 224791

Normally when giving their reply for what they picked, they'd make a brief mention of one or two of the other movies to say why it didn't win, or that it was close... for this the people that voted Frozen just said Frozen and went to the next question. This isn't filling me with the belief that they bothered to see the other movies.
>> No. 224792
>And those who did not watch all the nominated movies, decided to abstain from making a vote. Which was the right thing to do.

The fact that so many supposed judges didn't bother watching all of the movies that were nominated does show contempt for the medium. Abstaining was the right thing to do in the case of not watching all the movies, but watching all of the movies was the right thing to do as judges for award show.

I think you're either doing revisionism or you're confabulating, plenty of people used the term "show" before MLP came to be. More and more people use the term "show" now, for the same reason as the term "franchise" is used more often.

With the vast majority of new toons being owned by Disney, Time Warner, Fox or Viacom, corporate press releases use terms like "show" and "franchise" ad nauseum. And since /co/ reads a lot of that stuff, many posters as they grow older adopt the language the suits use for their products. You just soak that newspeak up when reading about modern cartoons.

ad nauseam* Typo.
>> No. 224909
"Franchise" is an important alternate term because it allows us to include things like tie-in comics and other media separate from the main series, as well as including sequels and spinoffs. So it's useful when referring to the Avatar franchise (as opposed to just ATLA, Korra, or the comics) or Adventure Time (which has tons of tie-in comics), though it might not be so important for something like Steven Universe (for now).

Personally, I think that he's at least more consistant with his writing than, say, Alan Moore, because when he's on form he's really on form, and when he's not it's normally deliberate. See his Dan Dare, Battlefields, War Stories, Red Team etc. books for more examples of him writing well when he actually cares about the subject.

I'm in the small group of "not asking for an Incredibles sequel". Now I'm not saying they shouldn't, just not asking for one. I mean the original movie is just so overall fantastic from the plot to the villain and to the character development (every single character's development in the span of the 100-something minute movie). To top that is an incredibly (no pun intended) tall order. I'm also not saying that they can't. If they prove me wrong here, I'll be completely happy about it. I just really think it'd be a bummer if it's simply seen as another "not as good as the original".

Didn't like the art at all, but I did appreciate the writing. I also I appreciated what it tried to prove, that porn can be art and have a story, and that its existence pointed out how a lot of the early 20th Century stories we nowadays consider children's entretainment, original had a ton sexual subtext especially Peter Pan.

>And League of Extraordinary Gentlemen post-Black Dossier?

Pretty much entirely, yup. The 1969 part was kinda meh, but I loved the 1910 and 2009 parts of Century, and especially Nemo - Heart of Ice.

I should also mention, the Black Dossier is one of my favorite all time works within the comics medium.

Lost Girls was a fucking mess on pretty much every level. It imitated 19th century pornography so well that it became every bit as incoherent and bizarre as it was - but with a layer of artsy pretension layered on top that just left a bad taste in my mouth.

I mean I don't think there's much denying that Moore is a thousand times the writer Ennis is - Ennis is capable of competence on occasion, genuine quality in the rarest of instances, but is mostly puerile and dull - but Moore's output since...god, for a long fucking time has been weird and messy and kind of bad.
>> No. 225220
I can generally agree with this. The art was way more offputting than the writing, which was far from Moore's best but I think people are overly savage toward it.

It looks good. But all it is, is the two most popular characters displaying their typical mannerisms. The is just playing it safe with a "we'll keep them the way you remember them" teaser, we still know next to nothing about the movie itself. Let us not jump on the hype bandwagon immediately.
>> No. 225255
Don't be "that guy" who must be contrarian for the sake of it, it's obvious that Tiki is talking about the visuals.

Also, exactly how does one not play safe with friggin Peanuts? You are speaking like keeping the characters, you know in character is a con.
>> No. 225258
No, I'm in favor of the characters being in character, it's nice that Charlie Brown and Snoopy act like themselves.

All I'm saying is the teaser is short and it's impossible to make any real judgements, so calling it "flawless" seemed like overpraising to me, is all.

I'm most definitely not a contrarian, and I resent the suggestion. I live in a country where the average citizen doesn't know about Charlie Brown or the Peanuts comic, so there's no reaction here to be contrary to.

I like Peanuts and I hope the movie will be good, but it's made by Fox and the teaser is too short to make any real judgement. So I'm cautious rather than hyped. That's all there is to it.

I am unsure what to think about this.

I disagree. I think comedy WAS its focus, it just believed that telling a good story and having well-developed characters was the best way of delivering the sort of comedy they wanted to tell. It wasn't "zany" comedy, it was character-and-plot-driven comedy. Comedy designed to have a longer lasting effect on its audience.

Mystery Inc was great.

Mystery Inc was certainly the only good version of the show I've ever seen, and I've somehow seen nearly every version (including that one with just Daphne, Scooby and Scrappy, and possibly a hillbilly cousin of Scoob) of the show, and this was the only one that was actually, well, GOOD.

Eh, people don't like change. As soon as the new series shows up with more of the same formula junk people will start waxing nostalgic for MI more.
>> No. 225471
I also liked "Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue" it wasn't great by any stretch. But it featured Eric Radomski's (Xiaolin Showdown type) brand of humour, which I'm a fan of. Plus, I love Dr. Evil, and Phibes was basically a G-rated version.

From what I hear, regular Scooby-Doo fans hated that one to oblivion.
>> No. 225477
Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue is hated because is hated because their main characters aren't in their usual coward selves, Fred, Daphne and Velma are nowhere to be seen and it's more about wacky adventures and not your usual mysteries with costumed people.

I think it was fine, not as remarkable as Mystery Inc. but at least they tried something different.

I wonder if people hated Zombie Island when it came out, since it went supernatural.

Considering the last iteration before "pup" was supernatural, and the fact that there where supernatural enemies before that, I don't think it was so far outside of the realm of expectation.

And after doing some research, I just found out that they tried to force Scrappy Doo on everyone for 6 years across 4 series, 3 of which removed Fred and Velma and 2 removing Daphne. Which explains a lot.

Truth be told, the ratings actually went up during his introduction, but they got greedy and tried to make it more about scrappy and scooby, removing out most of the main cast. The hate for him, I assume, was only amplified by the continual attempts to totally warp the series into something more pandering. The people who found him annoying firsthand had an excuse to spread the decent with the removal of the other characters and the shifts in style.

In all honesty, before he was removed from the franchise, Scrappy was one of the better characters of 13 ghosts.
>> No. 225488
You know, I never really disliked Scrappy, I found myself very neutral towards Scrappy. Although by the time of the 13th Ghost and tv movies from the 80's (you know the red shirt Shaggy ones), I began to like him since the character seemed to kind of "grew up".
Eventually, I understood why people disliked him, and I felt bad they didn't retooled him like they did on the 13th Ghosts.

Also, Zombie Islands was awesome.

I guess it was the usual marketing people that keeps bugging the creative teams for more way to sell shit.

Within ten or twenty years, technology and community will make it to where it's so easy to make a decent quality movie that the market will get glutted by indie films. Most of them will suck, yes, but so does most of what Hollywood makes. Once Hollywood is no longer THE source for movies, and has to actually compete with the amateur filmmakers to get their sweet, sweet Netflix money, the industry's going to be fundamentally changed. Among other things, I doubt "genre" is going to survive in the way it currently exists.
