Cartoons (20)

1 Name: Couch Potato : 2009-10-12 11:11 ID:UN3wmoLY

What do you guys think about western animation?

11 Name: Couch Potato : 2010-07-10 11:27 ID:gchup/bW

There were tons of great WB cartoons. Even as recently as Freakazoid, Animaniacs, and Tiny Toons. Of course Looney Toons was the best.

I like western animation a lot, actually. Most relatively modern (IE- made in the past 5-10 years) cartoons seem a little... bland to me, though. I dunno if it's just because I've grew bored of the medium as a whole, or if I was spoiled by my childhood (I grew up on stuff like DuckTales, Tailspin, Animaniacs, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life and Doug; to name a few).

That's not to say -all- modern cartoons are bland. Chowder and the Misadventures of Flapjack are alright, some of the more "serious" stuff like Ben 10 and Avatar : The Last Airbender is decent, too; but there seem to be fewer reasons for me to watch newer stuff on, say, Cartoon Network, when there are re-runs of some rather decent shows on channels like Boomerang.

Althgouh I like the show, I can't say it's "gorgeous".
I like the art style, but it's honestly really basic.

The Ed Edd N Eddy movie was amazing

>Western animation

...what Western Animation? Except for a handful of Disney full-length animated movies, (aesthetically pleasing) Western animation is practically non-existant.

Western kiddy cartoons, such as the already mentioned Doug, Red and Stimpy, Rocko, Adventure Time, Simpsons, etc., are completely dialog-driven and rely on a 22-minute barrage of jokes to hold the viewer's attention and are completely devoid of any aesthetic value. The characters are so completely stylized that they lack any resemblance to living beings; they are grotesque concatenations of geometric shapes more than anything.

In anime, a human actually looks like a human and that's what's important to me. I can't stand Western animation because all modern cartoons are pretty much comedies and I want to appreciate the artstyle and not the plays on words. If I wanted to appreciate dialog I'd read a novel or a play.

Star Wars Sequels (7)

1 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-24 02:51 ID:f2BtVRwC

Well now that it is all over what did you guys think of the Star Wars sequels? I hated them and in my opinion they make the prequels look better.

2 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-24 07:12 ID:Moks0ulW

VII: derivative garbage, literally just some disney exec saying "let's make some generic hero's journey shit to print money. we'll have a girl and a black dude to fool surface-level observers into thinking it's not a soulless rehash of the original"

VIII: actually took risks (which ended up backfiring) and had an interesting idea or two. tbh i'm still shocked it was even made. however it wasn't set up properly by the prequel and ended up being a muddled mess with a bunch of pointless subplots. if it wasn't star wars it might be remembered as a flawed cult favorite of scifi movie buffs, akin to THX 1138 or something

IX: see VII, except the exec also said "make sure you blatantly retcon everything about VIII that the youtube incels whined about"

it's really hard to say whether the prequels or sequels are better overall. but that's like trying to decide whether dog shit or human shit is better

3 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-24 08:18 ID:f2BtVRwC


At least the prequels still had a somewhat cohesive story that is something these sequels do not have.

4 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-25 15:04 ID:QGCgKJV7

I always liked the political type in the prequels. Like how it showed how the Empire turned from the Republic to the Empire. Kind of like ancient Rome.

5 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-26 13:01 ID:f2BtVRwC


Same here.

6 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-10-07 02:16 ID:Qc2/ldV6

I only saw VII, watched it in theaters.
The first half was pretty standard I'd say, but once those bounty hunters or whatever started going after Han, things started to seem really off to me. With Starkiller base and the unbelievably obvious incoming Han death, I found myself really taken out of it and just uninterested. I didn't give a fuck about Star Wars for years until I replayed Jedi Academy on a whim and realized I still liked the thing.
If nothing else, at least the prequels gave us a very good setting for side material like games, the sequel trilogy doesn't come close to it in that regard. It doesn't help that licensed video games are largely dead now.

7 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-10-08 05:11 ID:f2BtVRwC


I pretty much feel the same way.

A movie about 4 people who know how to cheat on each other.

Natalie Portman still sucks at acting.

INSTANT REVIEW: Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker (2019) (2/5)

You won't be bored at all. If you don't ask any questions at all, you'll have a good time. If you ask even one question, it's a mess. A complete mess.

488 Name: Couch Potato : 2019-12-22 04:53 ID:46ksnav6

489 Name: Couch Potato : 2019-12-23 00:02 ID:WK4W159s

Tons. As always. A lot of spaceship battles take place in atmosphere in this one though, so that might be the ONE thing about this movie that makes sense! I found one! I found one!

INSTANT REVIEW: Dead Within (2014) (2/5)

An extremely low-rent zombie apocalypse piece that mostly takes place in the formerly fashionable summer home of former yuppies. Now they're just crazed survivors like all who remain living. The best bits of this movie involve the poor selection of food/drink available to them six months later.

INSTANT REVIEW: The Water Diviner (2015) (3/5)

Russell Crowe's character goes looking for his dead sons in Gallipoli in 1919 using his divining powers, because that's real. He and his dead kids keep getting in the way of the real hero of the story: a grizzled Turkish officer who has a lot to say about those filthy Aussies invading his country.

495 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-07-27 23:15 ID:WK4W159s

INSTANT REVIEW: Pulgasari (2/5)

The North Korean answer to Godzilla. A lot of things got hurt by this project: actors, livestock, and the kaiju genre to name a few. Appears to star the Korean People's Army for some epic medieval battle scenes. Not against the monster, though. He's hardly in it.

496 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-12 16:05 ID:WK4W159s

INSTANT REVIEW: Nemesis (1992) (2.5/5)

It's about some good cyborgs battling evil cyborgs in the near future. Everyone is a heavily armored robot, so they take a lot of hits to go down. Their battles are completely ridiculous and involve aircraft cannons eventually. It's not good, but it's not boring.

Sorry phaggots, but you will never watch another capeshit movie again because of coronavirus. TV/film production all halted and all theaters closed. After this drags on for months/years there will be no theaters left.

it's over, time to pick up a book. or do like me and watch some classics because only garbage is made these days anyways.

2 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-09-10 04:13 ID:F5i0Sgu6

You underestimate the shittaste of the capfag. HBOMAX is going to get a massive boost from dummies subbing just to watch the Synder Cut. All streaming services have to do is basically bring back DVD extras as premium content and trash taste will be saved.

19 Name: Sosorry : 2020-07-08 07:02 ID:8kWpTeBD

Hi everyone!
I’m so happy that I could finally find this thread again. I’m hoping that everyone is wearing masks, socially distancing and keeping safe. I’ve missed chatting w you all, so much. Btw, Tom was seen at the veterinarian’s office the other day w his puppy Bobby, who accidentally swallowed a raisin and had to have his stomach pumped. He took a pic at the office. And of course everyone is swearing that Zawe Ashton was with him outside the office, b/c you could see a black slide shoe that she wears in the photo. That pic was harder to find though. I also saw a link promoting The Night Manager 2. I hope that series finds a way to come together.

And Tom just did a new UNICEF Ambassador Covid update, video.

22 Name: Heynon : 2020-07-13 21:51 ID:jKJ9r14j

>>19 Welcome back! And thanks for the tidbits - I haven't been looking around much during the lockdown.

I looked at the Facebook page of the veterinary tech who originally posted about Bobby, and she's in or near Atlanta. So the theory that he stayed there after Loki had to stop filming seems to be correct.

>>20 Not placing much faith in that Night Mgr 2 news - it looks rehashed. OTOH, the shutdown will give the writers more time to work on it, since productions may be backed up for quite some time.

>>21 It's nice to see him working with UNICEF again, after he stopped doing so after the GG speech.

23 Name: Heynon : 2020-07-13 21:52 ID:jKJ9r14j

24 Name: Anon. : 2020-07-31 03:30 ID:4wIGVE8j

26 Name: Anon. : 2020-08-04 22:44 ID:gUESJrql

Honestly I'll just give myself a light pat down. HONESTLY.

>>19 You misspelled her name. It's spelled JArthy. I'll accept no other.

>>23 I didn't. Any good tidbits?

I hope everyone is doing well. We're back to normality: MIL and FIL have left and hubs has returned. I was nearing my breaking point with that situation!

27 Name: Heynon : 2020-08-06 00:55 ID:jKJ9r14j

>>26 "Flossing"!

JArthy - sure you didn't mean EO?

Coriolanus broadcast was good, but I think I'd get more out of it after a second viewing. TH spoke very rapidly and was sometimes hard to understand (in fairness, this was the first time I'd seen this play). The role made great use of his physicality and his ability to play unpleasant characters. (I kept feeling bits of Loki, but that also shows how much TH and Branagh pulled from Shakespeare for the first Thor film.)

I only caught bits of the live commentary with Josie Rourke and various cast members (including TH). Some of it is shown in one of Marvel's "Cast During Quarantine" vids: (TH's part is at the beginning).

Glad you are finally free of the ILs and that the hubster is back! I can only imagine what your life has been like....

Obligatory Steven Universe Thread (3)

The ending of Future once again had a lot of cliff hangers. But on the positive side, kaiju Steven is hot and I want to be trapped underneath his (presumably) big pink chode

2 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-04-28 14:25 ID:Heaven

They probably want to leave it open to some sort of continuation. Contrary to popular belief, the show's been a pretty big hit for CN, and they want to milk it for all it's worth.

Also, hard agree on kaiju steven.

3 Name: Couch Potato : 2020-05-15 05:24 ID:Heaven

It's disappointing that their 100th episode renounced guns and revolution, alienating leftist fans and whittled its fanbase down to pacifist liberals.
