  3. Does anyone else ever wonder what would happen if a car like Herbie or Christine became a Transformer?

    Ask Luna

    Those are rare forsooth, as throughout all those years she finally managed to build some semblance of responsibility But thou art correct, it befalleth once in a while.
  5. I've seen quite a few movies recently. The Mule - Eh, not quite my cup of tea. Don't get me wrong, it's a great movie for someone who's a fan of the actor and likes dramas. But personally, I don't care much for dramas. So then, why did I watch it? Well, I just watched it with my parents who are both Clint Eastwood fans, rented it for them, actually. I honestly expected more of an action movie than a drama. As a drama, it's a good movie, but not something I find myself enjoying on my own. Maggie - Ugh, this movie was terrible. Not as a drama, as a drama it was alright. But this is just not my type of movie, I thought it would be a bit more action-oriented. I like how they tried to explore a different side of the zombie apocalypse and how this specific situation could be handled, but it focused a bit too much on trying to be sad and elicit sympathetic feelings from the viewer. There were a few times I liked it, That said, I feel there was a real missed opportunity in one particular scene. It was the fox scene, I wanted it to be more drawn-out, less implied, incredibly graphic, and truly horrifying. But unfortunately, that did not happen. It's just heavily implied and less in-your-face, which loses a lot of shock value. Something that would have made an otherwise terrible movie something worth watching, if just for that scene alone. Think about it, that scene would have made such an impact, yet it was heavily watered down. *sigh* Curse of Chucky - Yes. This movie was great. I love that Chucky has gone back to his straight horror roots, there was pretty much no forced humor, and Chucky even made less 'witty' quips in this than throughout the entire original Child's Play trilogy. It was great. As a fan that was turned off from the franchise because of Bride and Seed, I'm glad the franchise in returning to its original horror roots. Next on the list is Cult! The Shining - This is a masterpiece, and I am so glad I finally watched it! This movie deserves to be showered with praise! Great camera work, amazing acting, and truly suspenseful storytelling. This movie is great and deserves a watch! The only thing I find a bit lackluster about it is the lack of genuine scares. No jumpscares, but it didn't build up atmosphere either. It's a great movie, but I expected more in terms of actual scare factor. I guess it might've been scary at the time of its release, but it doesn't really hold up now. Bumblebee - Nice movie, an actual palatable offering from the live-action Transformers franchise. And a reboot! I like how the movie focused more on character development, which is very welcome. As well as forgoing the stupid juvenile humor found in the Michael Bay-directed series. If the franchise continues this route, I might actually like it this time. Alien 3 - Don't watch this, just don't. It plays out like a terrible Syfy original. Don't waste your time seeing the iconic Xenomorph turned into terrible CGI, don't watch Ripley be incredibly OOC, and don't watch the terrible cast with equally terrible acting. I would advise against even thinking about watching Alien: Resurrection either. The only thing I like about this is the idea that Ripley would die making sure the xenos never end up in the wrong hands. Everything else was terrible.
  6. @Buck Testa Hmm maybe actually one of Ghalan's spells is a wormhole.
  7. @Duality Nah Just pointing out things not being argumentative. But I'll drop it. @Buck Testa Nah Just pointing out things not being argumentative. @Buck Testa Plus I'm in a very good place right now.
  8. You're getting into that argumentative thing again. You've been doing that off and on again for a few pages in ooc now. It's just a game. You've apologized for it a couple times now but you really should start employing some anger management tactics. Whatever happens here isnt worth getting worked up over. Characters arguing and storming out of class are roleplaying scenarios. I'm not literally yelling at @Denim&Venom 's character, this is just how their personalities are clashing. I've even brought up avenues for character development in the future. Ways for our characters to bond and get along down the line. It's a roleplaying game. We're playing roles. Just like how @Passion 's Ley leaning into your character for acting strangely and following her around is just roleplaying. These aren't actual conflicts, they're plot points. but I keep getting the read that you're taking things personally. @Duality is just saying that it wouldn't make sense for a Janitor to immediately take a formal teaching position. Which I don't think is unreasonable to say. Certainly not to replace another teacher character.
  9. Today
  10. How long will Twilight stare blankly after reading this question?
  11. That is, literally, what the cartoon said. That she resented ponies not appreciating her night. You won't get to spin the poor Luna sob story with me because not only it conflicts with canon, but I also think it lessens anything she might have done and the value of her redemption. Anything else is another discussion, and there is nothing that alleviates those factors. Luna was literally, one of the two at the top of the hill. The literal definition of 'privileged'. And, honestly, I can't get into a discussion of any specifics from episodes such as A Royal Problem, without first talking about the technical aspects of the storytelling in these episodes. About things such as who is more loved, or is she awake when watching over the dreams, or even who has the more important job, and what are those jobs. This is going into headcanon territory. Not that it bothers me, but needs to be made clear. The nature of talents in MLP... What exactly do you mean? Because the cartoon has made a mess of this. To me, it would be a problem if, for some reason, she couldn't keep control of the night. Because as far as I can see, she should be happy with simply watching over the it. On the other hand, the cartoon has made a point about how cutie marks aren't that important and ponies can use their cutie marks and do different things with no problems. I don't think that this analogy of 'no love for the night = no love for Luna' follows. Though I could like it if it was canon. It's not this fandom. It's the Internet that does this. For example, in Rick and Morty, the final episode of season 3 the writers took special care to leave clues about certain details because they were monitoring Reddit. I thought that I might be giving the fandom too much credit in it's influence when I mentioned this in my comment, but you gave it a lot more. In our case, it's more along the lines of 'They like this! They like that character! Do those more!' Much more vague, and honestly, much less focused. I would call it symbiotic in the case of R&M, because then it made more information that was important to get across a already established point. In my example with Luna, they changed the character around, instead of reinforcing the original intended ideas. Not that it's bad, but it's something that I personally dislike because it messes with narrative coherence and makes me wonder if there actually was a plan to be followed. Completely disagree, on every single account. We're watching different cartoons. Now is the time to talk about nuance. Compare them to Twilight and Shining Armor. Twilight and her friends. The CMC. This has nothing to do with happily ever after because we can't see what is in the future. We can only see how characters interact when then are well-written. If Twilight stabbed Spike with a cutting pen next time he dropped something on the floor, after all we've seen, we'd call it 'out of character', not 'what happens after happily ever after'. So, either the cartoon is trying to tell me that Celestia and Luna can't stand each other and a civil war in Equestria is way past overdue, or it just sucked when it tried to portray them as sisters next to the other example. Now, I get what you're trying to say... After all, that is how sequels are made... But then the same could be said the other way around. "Oh... Chrysalis repented on her own and is going to apologize in the future" is the exact opposite level of optimism. Both mean nothing until they do, in the context of storytelling. There were several variations of the meme and serious people explained it away saying that Celestia was training and testing Twilight. Me? I say that Celestia is the best, goddamn cutest, most efficient, bad ass, benign tyrant, complete with character flaws, capable of wiping the floor with anyone that messes with her ponies awesome ruler there ever was, and certainly knows what she's doing, goddess of the sun. Except that the cartoon's 'difficulties' have turned her into an idiotic goofball that can't do anything right by herself, that acts benign but is so incompetent that she can't help screwing up everyone's existence, and is barely relevant and in constant need of help (comedic exaggeration(TM)). Somewhere in the middle ground of what I think the cartoon was trying to do with her and what it ended up producing, I find the canon Celestia, and that depends on the context of the conversation. The curious thing is that I think the same about Luna, but she had a poor idea of herself and her place as co-ruler, made some bad choices, and through the magic of the Elements (or friendship, to put it more bluntly) was expunged of her evil, learned from it and is doing great now. And I even think that the cartoon has done a passable job with her. This guy knows what he's talking about.
  12. Remember this Starlight Glimmer line from "Horse Play":

     

    Twilight Sparkle: I'm a princess. You talk to me.
    Starlight Glimmer: That's different. You're not a "princess" princess.
     
     
    Does that mean Starlight doesn't think Twilight is tall enough to be a "real" Princess? :ooh:
     
    I mean, the only thing Twilight lacks compared to the OP's is her height.

      Is Twilight's horn not long enough? :o

  13. (Starlight is resting in a capsule. A silhouette of Dr. Moon appears, and Starlight wakes up.) Dr. Moon: Starlight... Starlight: Who are you? Dr. Moon: My masterpiece... Starlight: But... who are you? Dr. Moon: After Twilight Sparkle! She is my nemesis. Our rivalry is what gives me motivation in life. Now go! Destroy her! That's an order. Starlight: Huh... ? Wait! (A sharp ringing sound is heard, and Starlight starts to scream in pain. She flashes back to Dr. Moon, Sunburst, a room full of slain royal guards, her own blueprints, and an image of blood covering her hooves. She wakes up hearing an alarm.) Hunter H.Q.: Emergency, Emergency! All Mareverick Hunters on call should assemble immediately! Starlight: The same dream... again... (Starlight runs out of the room to assemble as the announcement ordered.)
  14. Let's give a new example of anime man candy; Luck

  15. Trixie, Starlight, and Sunburst in a mutant- and robot-filled sci-fi world where nanotechnology turned them far stronger than their FiM selves. This would be the closest we'd ever get to a Mega Man X TV series.
