Speaking of X-Men TAS, I found an old Disney store gift card I still haven’t spent and I am considering getting an X-Men TAS DVD from their site with it. However, having just watched an episode on an old tape, the animation wasn’t as good as I remembered. I didn’t watch much of X-Men when I was younger, so maybe I’ve just been too spoiled by the DC shows of around the same time and the decade or so following.

The animation is no doubt pretty average stuff compared to other shows airing at the time, the intro is actually animated to a higher standard than the show itself (And then there’s the Japanese intro which is done to an even higher standard). The producers behind the show simply never had the money to properly finance it, whereas WB’s animated series (Batman and Superman) were properly financed and were praised for their animation. The show is never unappealing to the eyes though, until the last 6 episodes of the show which had to done by a studio in the Philippines to save budget and just look ugly.

And to add insult to injury, goddamn Canuckistanis voiced the characters.

[JEDIT]

Dammit. Now I’ve kindled the rage of the ghost of Don Francks.

I’ve never eaten quiche, but stupid, stupid rat creatures and Michael Ironside have made me want to try some.

Real men don’t eat quiche.

But I’m not a real man. I’m a figment of your imagination (as is everyone else here).

That can’t be right, I’m supposed to be everyone here… I can’t be a figment of my own imagination can I? What would Descartes say? I bet he ate quiche.

Perfect premise for a remake of Shallow Hal. Get Henry Cavill in on the action, too.

Susan Ward is where it is at (if it is at 2006)

Though it’s no Wild Things 2 or The In Crowd 😃


Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I recall Space Jam toys gathering dust at my local Kmart for years. The glut was almost as bad as that for The Phantom Menace.

It’s just too bad that Warners can’t conceive of a Looney Tunes film without some sort of Roger Rabbit gimmick.

Wrong thread, but hell shiting! I would dip my sausage in her egg.

Too much?

Who is the most foolish, the fool, or the fool which follows it?

Also fought in the clown wars, many years ago…and lost…miserably…

If you have to ask if it’s too much, then it might just be too much.

I always thought his movies were overly dark and edgy, but ouch. I hope this incident doesn’t impact his personal life too much beyond this.

EDIT: Proper pronoun use. I almost implied that his edgy movies were the cause of this tragedy.

Any Boxing aficionado’s 'round here? I’m working on a comic strip story where a boxer ends up offworld and has galactic adventures, the first introductory chapter has the boxer in a big match and I don’t want him to win, I want it to seem like he is going to win but by technicality or bad luck he loses, like he shoulda woulda coulda won but didn’t cause BS. What are some scenario’s where something like that could happen, or can anybody think of some old classic matches I might watch on the tube for inspiration where something similar happens? It’s set in the late 1940s. I could also probably do with a crash course boxing doc, if anybody knows a good one. Thanks!
