  1. Past hour

  3. Speaking of which, the Crows in the original animated Dumbo in 1941 are these days seen as racist for being stereotypical protrayals of black people. But I did look into it, and truth be told, it seems the "controversy" is overblown The Crows have their positive side as they were glad to take a fellow outcast like Dumbo under their wing and help him to get back at his oppressors. With the exception of Cliff Edwards, the voice actors were also black singers, the Hall Johnson Choir. All of them did a fantastic job on their song. When asked about it, Floyd Norman, one of Disney's first Black animators, defended the characters as saying that they were never conceived as flat racist stereotypes so much as a spoof on popular Black entertainers from the era, and that he personally never saw them as offensive (TV Tropes). Plus they were laughing more at the idea of seeing an elephant fly not at Dumbo himself like the rest of Dumbo's hecklers. So when looking at the older stuff, be sure to keep an open mind that there will be things that were fair for its day but would raise eyebrows if these were made today
  4. I just finished watching the NEW sonic the hedgehog movie trailer and I gotta say, I'm thoroughly impressed. ^^ This is SO much better than the previous trailer we got a couple of months ago. They really went back to the drawing board and fixed EVERYTHING. The jokes were good (it didnt feel like it was forced in any way), it was REALLY entertaining AND they FIXED Sonic's design. :laugh: I swear to god, the previous design looked like a guy in a fur suit and it looked...nasty :lie:. They did a REALLY good job with this trailer. I might actually go and see this movie. :catface:

      A definite improvement! :) I just can't understand why they didn't do it like this in the first place. :please:

  5. Goodnight.

      Good night, my friend! :kindness:

  6. Viacom should make its own streaming service. It'd have all the 90s Nick shows, old MTV shows, Comedy Central shows, etc.

  7. I like this. I like that they're acknowledging some of their questionable portrayals of certain groups in the past instead of hiding them and pretending that it didn't happen.
  8. Also, I took a quick at a short cartoon made in the early 1930s and was glad to see that in the detail description a message to remind viewers that back then it was commonplace for cartoons (wheter Disney or Looney Tunes from Warner Brothers) to contain stereotypes or jokes that may not be acceptable in today's PC world. Such as a gag that ended in blackface. Here's the description as a sample
  9. Whoa. It's literally so foggy out right now I can't even see my truck in the driveway from out my window. This fog be thiccc.

  13. Twilight’s tail is attached by her side.
  14. Yup. Just downloaded the app on my phone. Gave a quick skim of a Star Wars a New Hope to see which version of the George Lucas Altered Version Disney uses. As well as seeing as smooth it would run via my phone. I'm impressed (It seems to be based on the 2011 Blu-Ray version which I owned since December 2012. Personally, when it comes to the original trilogy, I'm used to how they looked in the 2004 DVD set and in the Prequels Trilogy, I'm used to how they look on their individual DVD release from 1999, 2002, and 2005. The controversial changes don't really bother as I still get to see all the action and characters interacting with each other) I also quickly checked out the tv shows I wanted to see/missed out on Television like Andi Mack and Tangled the Series and yes, unlike the Disney Now app which only showed the lastest without the earlier seasons, all the seasons appear to be there waiting for me to view In conclusion, First impression of the Streaming Service is most excellent. Later I shall test the Service on the family Roku Box in the Living Room. I should get back to sleep. But for now, great launch. And when I make time, I shall return with a quick review of what I've seen Have fun everyone.
  15. I just found out that it won't be on PS3, which is what I watch all my streaming on.
