Over the Moon - Glen Keane's Directorial Debut Anonymous 10/31/2020 (Sat) 01:55:46 No. 6883 [Reply]
It's full moon today, so here's a CGI film from Pearl Studio involving Chinks and the Moon goddess. Also, it's a musical, and of course published by those Netfux™. What did you think of Keane's first directed film?
The traditional animated sequence are nice (and I should make cuts), but the rest looks like Disney and Illumination had a bastard child (it tries to appeal both the musical crowd and very young children). The moon city and citizens are bland as fuck like those animated shorts that they put on TV in the markets as Demo. Something weird is that the MC is ugly, but like deliverately ugly it's not like they could have make her cute because the rest female characters are quite pretty even the ones that just are background characters for a couple of seconds.

Cartoon PSAs and moral episodes Anonymous 10/30/2020 (Fri) 01:21:48 No. 6826 [Reply]
While modern cartoons are strip mining the 80's and 90s, it seems they are taking our cringe PSAs as well. There was that barbie one where she talks about racism, with her black friend next to her of course and now the latest one is from Steven Universe. It has a cringe parody of old school PSA racism where a boy stops another boy from marrying a boy saying a white boy can't marry a black boy, followed by even more cringe where one of the boy actor's off camera says the parody version doesn't happen in real life. This is where Garnet and the other boy actors chime in to say that just because it doesn't happen to you doesn't mean racism doesn't exist. Kind of missed the point by making fun of a cheesy PSA by being a cheesy PSA itself. Even when I was a kid in the 80s, I thought the PSAs were dumb and hyperbolic and I would think the children watching cartoons now would think the same. The only benefit of them being made is cringe to be made fun of years from now. The only successful kind-of PSA was an episode of Dexter's Lab fighting against a bully that hated accents. That taught me to stand-up for myself more than any PSA could. Any other terrible or general discussion of Cartoon PSAs or episodes that devolve to teach you a lesson out of nowhere. Though, I think most modern cartoons are essentially extended PSAs or moral down talking at this point. Heavy focus on LGBT because if we didn't have 1 character representative of them, we wouldn't know they existed apparently. Kids aren't born racist but are taught to them by their environment or parents which is obvious. I wouldn't be surprised that being assault with messages to not be racist in everything you do, has created more racist than not.

Mysterius the Unfathomable Storytime Anonymous 10/23/2020 (Fri) 02:10:09 No. 6445 [Reply]
A light-hearted comic about a cynical wizard and his new assistant. They begin working on a few odd cases that end up tied to a bigger plot. It’s a pretty entertaining series with its own little mythology. Tonally, it’s a middle ground between Constantine, Doctor Who, and Witch Doctor. I read this comic back when it came out but lost my copies and forgot what it was called. I managed to find it few weeks ago, just in time for Halloween.

>obscure but good title >just the right length of storytime >good art >no ideological soapboxing >OP even proactively added download links This is a pretty good thread. I was expecting the critic to play a part in the villain's plan, if not him being the mastermind himself. Seems a strange choice to introduce the character only to reduce him to an inconsequential annoyance. The way that one magician also reacted to the idea of "a new Delfi" seemed to imply there's more to it than just being the Doctor's assistant. Smells like a dropped plot point.

>>6445 >middle ground between Constantine, Doctor Who, and Witch Doctor. Visually Mysterious reminds me a bit of Dylan Dog who let himself go. >>6478 It is pretty heavily implied that Mysterious needs to have a Delfi at his side to to reach full potential. He is far more lively in flashbacks than at the beginning of the comics. He becomes more lively and less apathetic over the course of the book, as he grows closer to his new Delfi.

Did no one else find it weird when watching TDK that the film is basically plot piece after plot piece action scene one after the other? Mind you Nolan does this basically all the time where he's really just an action film director pretending to be more especially with Tenet. Come to think of it you can really make the argument Nolan films are just MCU films with no humor or playful undertone.

All in all, what do you make of the show? On my front, I maintain the show lost something as it transitioned away from "cute kids doing cute kid antics" and more into memes and Gumball being a shit (and not an adorable shit, just a shit).

First look at Ryan Wilder Batwoman Anonymous 10/26/2020 (Mon) 21:25:07 No. 6645 [Reply]
They show a preview of a her in the final issue of Batgirl (2016) #50. They followed it up by showing the full costume for the tv show and oh my... There are so many things wrong with it. They assumed that since she is a black woman that she doesn't need no black eye makeup that would usually be there to mesh with the cowl. They also assume that to make sure you don't confuse her with white batwoman, they have to make her big ass afro hair stick out in the back so you know she's not on whitey's side. I'm surprised they weren't called racist on this decision. Then they realized they made a mistake because what Batwoman was known for was her red hair. Since I assume this is her real hair and not a cheap wig that Ruby Rose used, they can't take all the time to dye it red since she would still have this red hair in civilian attire aswell so they just added a few red extensions that you would miss it if you didn't notice it. This is also on top of the cheap looking batmobile she has that just looks like a regular car with stickers put on it. If she's as obnoxious in the comics as she is in the tv show, it's looking more deader than before. Even when DC is facing a weaker MCU, they still can't get anything right.

>>6691 >>6692 >>6699 Mutants being in the main Marvel universe is just straight up retarded. It only generates potholes and inconsistencies. It does not contribute anything of value wither, since 90% of the time mutants are doing their own thing anyway. Only exception is the flavor of the month mutant being added to a flavor of the month superhero team. Mutant could keep mutants in their own separate universe, and just make up a storyline of how current popular mutant or mutants got stuck in 616 universe, continued superheroing despite that, and got invited to join the team until way to get back to the mutantverse is found. But it's Marvel, a company run by some of the biggest retards in the entertainment industry, and worshiped by the one of the shittiest fanbases there is. It's pretty Ironic that DC's universe cobbled together from IPs belonging to multiple different companies is more cohesive. >>6695 >Spider-Man is of course hated by the public most of the time, and might as well be a mutant. Spider-Manace should be brought to justice. He is ruining the city, and someone must take him down. You have to be blind to not see all problems he is constantly causing.
>>6704 >DC's universe cobbled together from IPs belonging to multiple different companies is more cohesive. Man that's not saying much. Hawkman alone is a mess of convoluted nonsense that needed multiple essays just to explain.
>>6704 Mutants and the X-Gene cause a few problems with close inspection, but the other thing to consider is that not only are mutants considered a separate race, even by themselves, and they claim to be superior, but they're also usually much more common than mutates. That said, it's stupid when they try to make them limited to practically just the X-Men. It kind of defeats the point. >>6712 Hawkman is internally fucked up, but not in a way that fucks up the outside universe and other characters. They can mash any version of him, even the fucked up amalgams that have been standard for the last 30 years, and they work just fine with characters like Captain Marvel, Plastic Man, or Blue Beetle, who originally all came from completely different companies.

>>6694 She would be far more interesting if her faith was more than a window dressing. Having Kamala's upbringing and religion be at odds with the greater American society and its values could be interesting. Making her go through a crisis of identity amplified by her shape-shifting powers could be interesting. Same for her religion, and having her possibly become someone who things that Islam should be reformed, apostate, agnostic, or even an atheist would make for an interesting character progression. Unfortunately, no one working at Marvel has enough ability to write something like that, and company itself has no balls to do it. Her religion and background have no bearing on her character besides being superficial traits to make her slightly different than other characters.

>>3847 >Bauhaus style = forced simplicity So you never picked up a pencil before or any art theory?
>>6364 >you are the ignorant one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuaGN45mLu0 Bauhaus style =forced simplicity + abstract form with no relationship to nature + Art history & solutions of past ages rejected ((("rejection of all traditional IDEAS"))) +no ornamentation+ focus on industrial mass production Bauhaus was the idea of "ART" & aesthetics that the globalist created in order to pimp soulless industrial products to the masses who were used to the idea of traditional art & aesthetics.To reject thousand years of art history & tradition , the solutions invented by artists of past ages , to remove the idea of beauty from nature & to place the idea of manufactured beauty onto machine made products is forced simplicity & ignorance pushed to max. Bauhaus & contemporary art claims to give more freedom to artists,freedom from conformity of tradition & history, to provide a medium to express individuality otherwise suppressed by common traditions passed down by previous generations & rules of art invented by artists of the past. You should ask yourself how does being ignorant of history & tradition give you freedom? How can the artist express his opinions,ideas & emotions without having the ability to communicate ? The rules of art & design invented by artists of the past past passed down through generations give artists the ability to communicate his opinions,ideas & emotions.Without this ability all that the artist produces becomes noise with some progressive rhetoric attached to it (rejecting tradition = progress) . This processes of passing down of knowledge through generations represents the natural evolution of art and design & the corruption or subversion of this process is destruction of knowledge. "A laid-back greybeard professor interrupted to inform me, What do you mean? All of us here draw very well. Words failed me At the end of the talk, I showed them how to do a basic walk, and as a result got mobbed at the exit, the kids pleading desperately for me to teach them more. I escaped, but I'm afraid that's what the situation is out there — a lack of any formal training and no one to pass on the 'knowledge'. You don't know what you don't know. I harangued the deans of the art schools for failing in their duty to provide proper skills to their students. Surprisingly, when I finished, the deans called an emergency meeting to which I was invited. 'Look Mr. Williams,' they said, 'you're right, but we have two problems. Number one: since classical drawing was rejected years ago, we have no trained teachers who can draw or teach conventional drawing as they never learned it themselves. And number two: our mostly rich students — on whom we count for our funding — don't want to learn to draw. They would rather decorate themselves as living works of art — and that's exactly what they do.''

From the same fuckers that animated the bastardization of Castlevania comes a Netflix original "anime" about greek myth. Looks like shit. The voice acting is eh. The editing for this fucking trailer is awful though. Absolutely amateur. There's no epic feeling to this. It's like they hired an intern to just slap together a trailer with anything they had. Reminds me of the terrible New 52 DC movies.

>>5757 Netflix calls everything that has slightly japanese influence "anime", it's just a marketing thing at this point, normies seems to eat it.
>>5758 To be fair, the reason there's meaning in the word "anime" is because they have been doing quite similar character design for several decades with barely any changes and at a very high rate because production model. You can't say the same to any other national production, besides the canadians, but you get the idea.
Forget one: >The whole show will have a non-alpha male model of heroism where it's either some edgelord saving a world he holds in contempt or getting forced into it.

>>4914 Early South Park was way better, before it increasingly just became a soapbox for their political opinions, where they frequently just forget to actually tell jokes.
New stuff? Here and there. Old stuff? occasionally. I think it peaked during the season where "Make Love, Not Warcraft" was in. It kind-of got way too formulaic at some point where they try to wrap all the stories up with a moral in the last 2 minutes. I think it broke the mold at some point but it went back to the old formula not long after. I think it should've ended a long time ago like the Simpsons, even if it does have some good episodes here and there past its prime. Better to be remembered for all the good stuff instead of being burdened by the all the bad ones.

Comics, toons, web show doesn't matter. If it counts and has retcons that are bad list them. On my front I'll list just about all Legend of Korra did for spirits and their world. It turned spirits into more or less a cross between Mons and the forest dwellers from Princess Mononoke for a forced anti-segregation story while turning their world into somewhere you can go to for vacations. And it shows Bryke makes Far Eastern cultures to be way more deferential to spirits/gods than they actually were.

I really like Ironman, but principally because I like the armor as a concept. Can't say if it's the best movie from Marvel because I haven't watched the others.
Pre Avengers Marvel films and the MCU post Avengers are two different things and no one can tell me otherwise.
It's weird knowing that Favreau shot the entire movie without a hard script, and it still managed to be so successful. Too bad Ike Perlmutter fucked Jon's intention to actually adapt Demon in a Bottle with the sequel.

Anyone want to talk about all of the shitty Marvel anime? I'm watching Avengers Disk Wars right now and it is some of the cheapest shit I've seen in a while. I don't know who at Marvel thought giving Toei an Avengers show was a good idea. From the few episodes I've seen the Avengers are basically Pokemon that the children summon to fight for them. I haven't seen any of the other Marvel anime aside from a couple of episodes of Iron Man on G4 back in the day. Are any of the Madhouse ones any good?
