  1. Necro-ing this thread just to share these vids. First vid is Forgotten Weapons, which I'm a fan of, and the second (fair head's up, some gnarly injuries shown there) is the Kentucky Ballistics incident he's responding to. Keep it safe, y'all.
  2. This showed up in my recc's, figured I'd share before Blackout Weekend.
  3. Honestly, I thought this was gonna be some sort of Twisted Metal origin story...
  4. I gave it the old college try, and oy vey, I had to tap out after... I think it was when Cyborg confronts Diana for the first time? I don't know what some of y'all wanted in a Justice League movie, but this can't have been it. So. Much. Slo-mo. The. Movie. Could. Have. Been. An. Hour. Shorter. If. Only. It. Didn't. Stop. To. Linger. On. Every. Third. Shot. Like. It. Was. The. Most. Important. Thing. Ever. But. You. Know. Snyder. Man. Needs. Us. To. Know. That. This. Scene. Is. E. M. O. T. I. O. N. A. L. A. N. D. O. R. S. Y. M. B. O. L. I. C. D. O. Y. O. U. S. E. E. A. M. I. G. E. T.
  5. A tournament would give the movie some much-needed structure, which this movie lacks. But even that aside, given that they emphasize the tournament in the early parts of the movie, it's only good storytelling to pay off on it. They could have neglected the tournament altogether, that could have worked just as well, but as it is, it's just... poorly executed.
  6. I think you mean Gerwalk and Fighter modes. The Super boosters are very slightly different from their previous counterparts - I'm seeing so far - added winglets - an added recessed detail on the central white/light gray sections The 31E's central pod looks to be another dual cannon setup; the cannon on the VF's right is the standard railgun? we've seen before, and the other looks to be another unique design, different from the guns on the Armored's dual-cannon pod. It also has a different canard design from normal. IIRC there was a "Delta 06" that showed up very briefl
  7. The increasingly deep lore for Scorpion and Sub-Zero has always felt particularly unnecessary to me, and so their introduction to start the movie off didn't wow me much more than MK 1995's intro did. It wasn't BAD, though, and I'm always game to see more Hiroyuki Sanada in action. The rest of it is a bit of a wash, with slightly dirty water. jenius nailed it on the head with that summary: it's a movie about a fighting tournament that has no fighting tournament. They try to make a token effort at it towards the end, but it still never gets there, and just feels all the more bizarre for it.
  8. Does anyone remember if the VF-31 is capable of unassisted space fold? Part of me says that that was one of its distinguishing features, but another part of me is like 75% sure in that one episode of Delta that Messer folds in to save the day/die using a fold booster that jettisons before he enters the atmosphere.
  9. Depending how the distribution licenses(/sub-licenses???) are handled, the merch might not make it stateside anyway. BW and HG might have worked out a new distribution deal for the shows and movies - I'm guessing HG sub-licensed the trademarks to BW to make things kosher - but the announcement IIRC says nothing about merchandising. If HG's stranglehold on the US trademarks continues to be an unnecessary hassle to the likes of Bandai, Hasegawa, Arcadia, etc., they might just treat it as business as usual and continue to ignore the US market altogether. (Frankly, I might prefer to keep it that w
  10. "Turn the audio on," it asks of us while blowing out the audio balance with NOTICE ME SHAREHOLDERS music.
  11. Could Bancadia avoid HG by just (well, "just") tweaking any problematic items to be from a different entry in the franchise? Release VF-1s in Delta livery. Repaint Monsters in... I dunno, VF-X? colors. VF-4G as an M3 design. etc. etc.
  12. Gonna copypasta from the last page. Anyone got any clarification?
  13. Did BW take back the trademarks in the EU, though? IIRC, they sued, a judge initially ruled in their favor, HG appealed, and then both parties moved to... suspend the case? drop the appeal? If they (HG and BW together) have simply filed to suspend, presumably there will have to be some follow-up motions in the near future to either resume or drop the appeal? If they've (HG mainly, though in cooperation with BW) dropped the appeal, the last declaratory action (ie the judge's ruling) would put the trademarks in BW's hands? Was the initial ruling put on hold at all pending the appe
