Hey allo: anthrosaur snarl mechanics?
Galaxy Quest is such an awesome movie…
JUST WATCHED THIS MOVIE WITH MY MOM.
MUCH ENJOYMENT WAS HAD.
And by Grabthar’s Hammer the Thermians are the cutest freaking things this side of the galaxy, with their terrible meatsuits and awkward behavior and their purple tentacles and synchronized warbles.
This is one of my top 5 favorite movies ERVERARAR. I think you have to be a bit of a sci-fi nerd to appreciate the subtlety of some of the comedy, but oh my god this movie wins in so many ways and is totally watchable for everyone regardless.
Also I hear you with the Thermians. Mathesar.. just.. just all of them really, oh my god. I want to hug each and every one of them.
Finally got some Rose Gold into Steph’s EIGHT healed nostril piercings! Piercings are almost 2 years old and were done by Marilyn Mena at our Uptown location.
Literally all I saw for a second there
on one hand i want a nightwing movie, but on the other hand i know they’d totally prob fuck him up and try to make him ~gritty~ like batman
i think id just really like them to start with a super gritty voice over and the actor portraying dick grayson doing the gargling-marbles christopher nolan batman voice
then just have him choke and cough and be like “how does he do that for more than fifteen minutes a night, jesus christ-“
begin nightwing movie~
Jason and the Argonauts (1963)
Film still with stop motion animation
Directed by Don Chaffey (1917 - 1990), animated by Ray Harryhausen (1920 - 2013)
Ray Harryhausen died today, aged 92. RIP.
I read about this in the news today and got sad. :c
I used to love my Voyage of Sinbad VHS as a kid (it probably had a longer title but that’s all I remember), even though my friends and even my mum thought it was super lame.
Actually, the photographs are spaced ten years apart, not sixteen.
1912 to 1922.
The young, homeless (but no less dapper) wanderer shown in the first survived the sinking of the Titanic and swam to the shores of West Egg. There he built a life and a large, empty house, in an effort to win the heart of the wealthy, upper class woman he’d fallen in love with a decade earlier and had been separated from against his will.
He shed his earlier identity, and changed his name to reflect his new station. Jack was now known as Jay Gatsby, the eccentric millionaire who threw parties every night in the hopes that one day his love would show up and spin with him as they had long ago in the dance hall of the lower decks.
And then, at the beginning of Inception, he starts out washed up on a shore.
still no oscar
Mmmhhmmmm Van Helsing monsters were nice!
Van Helsing, Constantine, and Jurassic Park 3 will always and forever remind me of Quazar because we watched them together back in the day and then spent ages talking about how awesome random things in them were.
DRACULA’S WINGS BECOMING HIS CAPE.
JURASSIC PARK 3 JUST DINOSAURS EVERYWHERE PLS.
all I have to say is:
I watched Blue Submarine No. 6 and these things were by far my favorite designs. They only showed them for like maybe 10 seconds total in the whole OVA though. I especially liked how they were a murky, “ugly”, conga-ish green in contrast to the little colourful mermaids.
Ender’s Game official images from the movie.
Fingers crossed that this movie will be good. The book made a pretty jarring impact on me as a kid (I read it at roughly the same age that Ender was in the book). I’m trying not to get too psyched out for it to spare myself the disappointment but HARRISON FORD PLEASE AND ENDER YOU ARE TOO CUTE.
Oh wow this is first I hear of this please be good

It took me until the third time I watched the movie to get this, but I was so glad when I did.
Draco is best movie dragon*. Hands down. Sorry Toothless. Sorry Saphira. Actually no that second one is a lie I’m not sorry at all.
I was just talking the other day about how the only really good dragon movies out there are Dragonheart and How to Train Your Dragon. Sure there are good movie dragons but not good movies about dragons. If anyone wants to suggest some to me please do.
I never liked his design all that much but god, the level of thought put into the animation of Draco is still so good. You can clearly tell the difference between his natural movements and his hammy acting in the first gif. This does not look like CGI from 1996.
(*Actually I think it’s kind of a tie with Haku, but Haku loses points for spending a great deal of the movie not actually as a dragon)
“fanart has less worth than regular art” yeah right bite my shiny tailless tush
Am I the only one not looking forward to the prospect of a Portal or Half-Life film?
I mean, I have never, ever, once seen a film adaptation of a game that was any good. Even with J.J Abrams and Valve getting involved, I still have very little faith in this venture…
I don’t want my beloved…
No I’m with you (to be honest I liked the Doom movie, though I acknowledge that is a shitty VIDEO GAME movie it’s a pretty fun silly action movie, and Prince of Persia, while horribly whitewashed, wasn’t awful either).
But I digress. Warning! Massive rant ahoy like whoa.
Portal is one of those games that DOESN’T translate well to a movie at ALL in my opinion. Short clever little films? THE. HELL. YES. But these are little 15 minutes independent things where they can be as slow and artsy and silent as they want because we’ve already experienced Portal at it’s finest. WHEN WE WERE PLAYING IT.
Part of what makes Portal so glorious is discovering the story for yourself in little hidden bits of atmosphere all around the puzzle rooms and solving everything yourself. Trying to reproduce the essential essence of Portal in a non-interactive film media will spoil the whole experience.
There are plenty of other video game franchises to make movies out of. Half Life 2 I can see, especially since the world is so big and you’ve got lots of unrelated side stories that you could craft into a full film.
Halo already knows what’s going on, I mean the Halo ODST, Halo Reach, and Halo 3* ad campaigns were ridiculously awesome. They’ve got a short by the guy who did District 9 AND they released a freaking live action miniseries with Halo 4. They’re the prime example of how to do a video game movie RIGHT and they haven’t even MADE a Halo movie because it’s too expensive! Instead they just churn out shittons of really high quality live action stuff all revolving around side characters and bits of the lore that haven’t been explored fully in the game yet. And frankly Halo can do that because who doesn’t like a huge space war against evil aliens and rebels or something I mean the potential film ideas are endless. The world of Portal is a lot different, seems a lot more self contained, and exploring any which aspect in too much detail would tarnish a lot of the speculation and mystery around it for me. I’m down with reading a comic about the fall of Aperture Science written by a crazy dude, but do I want a whole film about it where the whole thing is traced out step by step? No.
Of course there are good short fan movies of everything from Modern Warfare to Minecraft, but needless to say there are video games that don’t translate well to film and those that do, and Portal falls heavily in the NO DO NOT WANT category.
If Valve wants to make a video game movie Half Life 2 and hell even Left 4 Dead would make much, much better additions since their stories can be easily modified into film form or a sort of spinoff kind of thing can be crafted (like as much as I like Gordon I would only want to see him in a Half Life 2 movie in a single scene or cameo or something).
Also the Dead Space movies aren’t awful if you like really horrific anime so there’s that. But once again SIDE STORIES HELLO.
Alright. I’m done.
TDLR: Portal does not a good movie make. Half Life 2 movie instead please. Halo is awesome. When did this become an ode to live action Halo things fuck whoops.
*TOO MANY VIDEOS I’m not linking that you can look that up yourself along with the live action Halo 4 stuff thanks.
Valid points everywhere^^^^
Unless they do something like go back and tell the story of Cave, or even Rattman (if it was handled well) this seems like a terrible idea. You’d have to make it in a psychotic, weird kinda format like Saw, and if previous videogame movies are any indication it’s unlikely they’re willing or able to do that.
