Re: On the topic of animated fat men...

No love for courage the cowardly dog? This is a travesty! Cartoon Cartoons in their heyday were amazing. Dexter's Laboratory, Cow & Chicken, I Am Weasel, Johnny Bravo (before the retool), Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog and even Sheep in the Big City. I never really liked The Powerpuff G...

Re: It's Dr. Eggman's 20th Birthday.

The phrase "Sonic is what got me into video games" might feel a tiny bit cliché, but even so, that's the way it was with me. I first became a fan of Sonic through AoStH, and i never gave a crap about video games until i saw a friend of mine playing Sonic 2, which i of course initially was interested...

Re: "I WILL BREAK YOU, BATMAN!!!"

Didn't Nolan used to say that he wanted to use Batman villains that hasn't appeared on film before? And yet, in the last movie we got Joker and Two-Face and now we get Bane?

Re: Sonic Generations

I'm not to up-to-date on the marketing here; does Sega keep implying that there are 3 distinct eras (Classic/Adventure/Rush) Well no, Sega seems to present Sonic's history as being split in just two eras, namely "Classic" (everything before Adventure ) and "modern" (everything from Adventure onward...

Re: Return to the Hundred Acre Wood

I'm not sure the disneyfication of that scene actually had anything to do with Disney consciously trying to "soften it up" though. I think it's more of a case of them simply feeling that the scene didn't "need" to be any longer than what we see on the screen. A notion that is entirely up to debate t...

Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

Sega should really be glad over the decision to release Sonic 4 prior to Colors though, considering that whatever praise Sonic 4 got was probably mostly due to "well, it's better than most of Sonic's other recent games".

Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

I feel that probably the single most significant change to the series that Colors has brought is that it presents a complete break with everything we thought we knew about Sonic when it comes to dialogue . Honestly, if there has been one consistently awful aspect of the Sonic games (with the sole ex...

Re: Return to the Hundred Acre Wood

If they ever make an adaptation of chapter 10 of the last book I'd definitely go see it. I think I sat awake for 3 hours after reading it in profound reflection. I'm sure they'd sweeten it up, but as long as they kept the outcome intact I'd be fine with that. I take it that you haven't seen The Man...

Re: Return to the Hundred Acre Wood

They did variants of that in both the New Adventures TV show and Piglet's Big Movie, but mainly the part where Piglet gets mistaken for Roo and Kanga bathes him. I know, which is why i said a proper adaption of the story. "Kidnapping" a kid in order to save him from having to take a bath isn't near...

Yes, that actually does happens in the book. And understandably, it was by far my favorite cha...

Re: Return to the Hundred Acre Wood

The fact that they are basing this film on stories from the original Milne books gives it all potential to be the best Pooh-related thing Disney has produced since the 70's. Short, clever, comedic stories mixed with just the right amount of sweetness is what Pooh is really all about. The half-assed ...

Re: Super Sonic Galaxy

I instantly like this new guys Sonic voice better than Griffith's. Griffith was simply unable to capture any of Sonic's required attitude, but Mr New Guy does a pretty good job at it.

But Tails still sounds to much like a fucking woman.

Speaking of Pokémon names, i still say they should have just went with the fan-name and named Marrill "Pikablue" for the western relase of generation 2. It would have been so awesomely stupid.
