  1. So in the past two years I've noticed Disney seems to be on a roll with a modern revolution. Instead of coming up with new fascinating, original ideas, they have decided to revive old iconic classics and remake them in live-action format, with voice casts featuring new and old members (given how some older ones have died and child voice actors are now adults with deeper voices). Some will stick stitch-by-stitch to the original movie's storyline, while others will be spinoffs or reboots centered around one character. Honestly I'm not sure how to feel about this. Given the incredible new technologies that have come into the world of filmmaking, the idea of all those simple hand-drawn 2D cartoon characters being reimagined in realistic 3D seemed very exciting for both Disney and their fans - well, some of them. Others are more on the lines of "Why bother with stories of old? Yeah they were amazing then, why try to make them more amazing now? Like, what's the point? People still watch 80s and 90s movies in 2018 and will continue to do so!" What do you guys think? Is this Reboot Revolution the right way to go for Disney? (The teaser trailer for Dumbo was briefly #2 Trending on YouTube earlier this week) Here are some of the movies that will be revived in live-action: Dumbo (following the original storyline, with some possible twists) A sequel to the 2016 The Jungle Book movie A sequel to the 2014 Maleficent movie Peter Pan (following the original storyline) Tinkerbell (her backstory) The Lion King (following the original storyline) Aladdin (following the original storyline) Cruella (villain backstory/childhood) The Little Mermaid (info is very loose - i.e. voice actors saying that they'd like to play certain characters)
  2. I'm working on a pilot episode script for my own personal MLP reboot, because ya know what? I really enjoy colourful horse creatures going on magic adventures where they kick butt and learn empathy and kindness. That is my JAM. Anyways, I'm stuck on some parts of the outline/story, and I'm struggling to finish it! Right now, I have a main character named Hopper who has to get rid of his Tantabus (a nightmare creature and spirit of self-harm that arose from Hopper's magic spells.) The pilot episode is about his journey through his fears, and the rewards that lay on the other side (friendship, acceptance, trust, support, etc.) There are some key things I want to establish about the world Hopper inhabits as well, and how it differs from the original series. Anyone have any suggestions? I have a Discord and Google doc, if you're interested in helping me create!
  3. Everywhere on the internet, I see that MLP Generation 5 might come out by 2021 or something, but I don't know if this is false. I've also heard several claims about the main characters being replaced with new characters to start a fresh story and to embody a different direction for Generation 5. And if they do keep the same characters, I hope their personalities are the same. And by the way, does anyone know if Equestria Girls is still making episodes or mini series? I felt kinda lugubrious when I finished the show, I'm like OMG :((
  4. Hey, everyone, your friendly neighbourhood Sunny Fox speaking... so I thought I'd start a new series on my blog... Cartoon Show Classics. This will basically be an exploration of the cartoon shows I grew up watching, delving into setting, characters, story lines, etc and why I feel they were awesome, while still being aware of their faults (every show has them, after all). While I may occasionally delve into the creators / context in which they were created, this really is not supposed to be the Wikipedia Lite version of these shows, but more my own opinions and feelings about them. While definitely being beasts of different colour, please don't be surprised if one or two anime manage to sneak in with the more western style of cartoons. It will take me a while to ramp up, and the release schedule may be a bit all ova da place, but I hope you like it. First up, the nearest and dearest to my heart: the amazing world of ReBoot. (That's the name of the show, it's not a reboot of anything, those pretty much always suck. Anyhoo...) I come from the Net… through systems, peoples and cities… to this place… Mainframe! My format: Guardian. “To Mend and Defend.” To defend my new-found friends; their hopes and dreams. To defend them from their enemies… <<Music and Clips from the current season>> They say the User lives outside the Net, and inputs Games for pleasure. No one knows for sure… but I intend to find out… ReBoot! The Opening Narration by Bob – For the first two seasons, anyhow… The Setting: Mainframe and the Net Did you ever wonder if the characters in your favourite game had their own sentience? Their own lives, their own experiences, beyond just what happens in the game itself…? Well, that’s pretty much what ReBoot is about – the world inside your computer, where the games you input for pleasure are a life-and-nullification reality for its inhabitants. Set inside a computer called Mainframe, the series deals with the adventures and escapades of the inhabitants of the computer, visualized as a modern city with skyscrapers, parks, office buildings and restaurants, floating in an infinite sea of energy. The people of this world are divided into sprites, who are more human looking, and the decidedly less so binomes. Mainframe itself is merely one System within the broader world of The Net. No prizes for guessing what that represents. Our main character, Bob, comes from a more advanced System merely referred to as the Super-Computer, and is frequently faced with the reality that Mainframe is decidedly less sleek and sophisticated than what he is used to. (Think of it as Ponyville vs Canterlot.) One of the main conceits of the series is that Mainframe at large is aware that something called the User (aka you and I) exists, but is so much greater than and removed from their current reality so as to seem positively Lovecraftian in nature. What is certain, though, is that from time to time, the User sends Game Cubes to the city. Any part of the city, as well as those who live there, that end up inside the Cube are trapped in the Game and forced to battle the User (or more specifically, an avatar controlled by the User) for their very existence. If they lose, the section of the city where the Game Cube sits will be destroyed, and all the inhabitants will become Nulls, mindless slug-like creatures with very little semblance of who they once were. What keeps this from being straight up horror is that there is something the Mainframers can do when trapped inside a Game. By double tapping their icon (a badge-like thing that contains their Personal ID – long story, will explain more later…) and intoning “By the power of Grayskull!”, I mean “ReBoot!”, the Mainframer's appearance is altered and they can access information and equipment from the Game Cube itself, putting them on a more even footing with the User. So, if you ever were on the verge of winning a game, but then the computer “cheated” and got the best of you… well, now you know why! Apart from the User and the Game Cubes, the world of Mainframe presents many challenges and dangers for our heroes to overcome. These include (of course) our villains, but there are also tears (pronounced like tear in paper, not as in crying), glitches in their world that appear as shining orbs of light, radiating enough energy to wreck a room. Guardians, such as Bob, can either repair tears, or harness the energy to create portals to other Systems. (This is pretty much explained all within the first episode, so no spoiler warning for you.) And there are a few more surprises to be had, too. As the series progresses, it moves from being very episodic in nature, with occasional double episodes, to having long continual story arcs, as the characters change and develop… sometimes so much as to be virtually unrecognizable… but that is a story for another time. For now, let me introduce you to our cast: Our Heroes Bob, a.k.a. Guardian 452 Our hero and protagonist (plus opening narrator) Bob arrives in Mainframe just prior to the events of the first episode. Bob is a Guardian, basically an elite kind of police officer. The two main facets of the Guardian Code (To Mend and Defend) pretty much sum up his two main tasks within Mainframe… to fix tears and to defend the general population from the actions of viruses (not viruses as in it-that-shall-not-be-named - here viruses are humanoid characters, like sprites.) His companion Key Tool (unique to Guardians) is named Glitch, a Do-Anything Robot that sits on his wrist and does most of his work for him (you’ll see what I mean). Bob is known for being very intelligent in a lateral-thinking, flies-by-the-seat-of-his-pants kind of way. He’s not big on planning, but generally astute enough to handle whatever comes his way so as to seem like he had it in control the whole time. This is pretty much the opposite of the way that Dot (described below) does things, so it’s a source of much of the Belligerent portion of the Belligerent Sexual Tension between the two in the earlier parts of the series. Despite the opening narration, Bob never really does attempt to learn the truth about what the User is, possibly because it's literally impossible for him to do so. You can't casually call up Cthulu and ask him if he exists, now can you? Dot Matrix Dot Matrix (named after an old type of printer) is an entrepreneur and business owner of (eventually) most of Mainframe, although her main business is Dot’s Diner, a popular fast food joint and one of the most frequently visited locales. An intelligent, no-nonsense kind of person, she likes to have everything planned down to the fine details, to a point where it can become unhealthy (a focus of some episodes). She does through planning and foresight what Bob does with quick wit and athleticism. Although when called upon to do so, Dot has shown a few times that she is force to be reckoned with, Action Girling it up with the best fiction has to offer. Underestimate her at your peril. (Oh, and her voice actor, Kathleen Barr also voiced Trixie - so if you want to hear her as an actually enjoyable character, definitely watch ReBoot! Hmm? What's that? No, I will not stop taking potshots at Trixie! Silly rabbit.) Enzo Matrix For the first two seasons, Enzo fills the tagalong kid archetype. Dot’s little brother, he is wide-eyed and idealistic, and really looks up to Bob, frequently leaping onto him to knock him over and sit on his chest while babbling a-mile-a-minute about the latest events and aspiring to be a Guardian. Despite being prone to making mistakes and looking before he leaps (he is a kid, after all), Enzo is at heart a good sprite who wants to help his sister and Bob keep Mainframe safe. He is also lonely due to having few other sprites his own age to play with. He does have a companion of sorts, though. Frisket Why do I hear "Back in Black" playing in my head? Oh, well... Frisket is a large gold and metallic red dog that, while feral, has adopted Enzo and generally hangs around him when not off on his own. (He also has an engine under his nose – just thought you might like to know that.) Frisket is willing to defend Enzo to the death, but he really doesn’t like Bob, and will growl at him or chew up his stuff if given the chance. While he is unable to talk (although he clearly understands what others say to him) and is entirely canine in behaviour and mannerisms, he is in fact a sprite. He has a great sense of smell he can use to track others, and he is strong enough to catch a cannon-ball in mid-flight, as well as prevent an ABC, a kind of flying tank, from lifting off (until the tailgate breaks off, that is…) Despite his great qualities, he is not someone Enzo can relate to on an intellectual or emotional level. Enter… AndrAIa A second season arrival, AndrAIa is a young game sprite, an artificially intelligent game character that Enzo meets and befriends in her introductory episode. Being a denizen of a game, AndrAIa is doomed to leave Mainframe when / if our heroes win… luckily, she thought to download a backup version of herself onto Enzo (specifically his icon), allowing her (or this version of her, at least) to exit the game and live within the “real world” of Mainframe. Since the game in which she originated was set in the ocean, her clothing and accessories have a Little Mermaid, under-da-sea kind of aesthetic. She also has scaled skin, gills and poisoned barbs for fingernails, but all in all, she’s a sweet and naïve girl who quickly attaches herself to Enzo, becoming his inseparable companion thereafter. Binomes The binomes form the bulk of the population of Mainframe, and therefore serve as background characters, for the most part. Binomes, representing the zeroes and ones of binary machine language, come in two principal types. Zero binomes are basically balls with arms and legs and have two eyes, while One binomes are three stacks blocks, with a single eye and mouth on the top block, arms coming from their middle block, and legs attached to their lower block. Both types of binomes can come in both genders, and there really is not much to distinguish one from the other – except in certain cases, such as… The Crimson Binome aka Captain Capacitor aka Gavin A software pirate (which in this world means “pirate” with all the trappings thereof), Captain Capacitor is the one binome leader of his ragtag crew of rapscallions and Captain of the “Saucy Mare”. After initially being introduced raiding Mainframe and stealing things, he eventually becomes a useful ally. Mr. Christopher (See image above) Captain Capacitor’s first mate, Mr. Christopher is rather timid, and is always keeping a running tally of potential profit vs. damages/downtime/resource management. Princess Bula An Amazonian one binome, Princess Bula is taller than most sprites, and bulkier, to boot. She speaks with an exaggerated slow and simple voice, but is physically a match for even Bob. She is also not really a princess, but no one is brave enough to tell her different. (Oh, and Kathleen Barr voices her too… it’s probably why she talks the way she does, so it’s not so obvious it’s the same person.) The Pirates Perfectly piratical pirates, they’re all about swilling grog and leaping to trim the main mast when shouted at. A number of them get names over the series, but all in all, they’re pretty much the same character. Villains Megabyte One might expect that in a digital world viruses would be the villains, and indeed they are. The first villain we are introduced to is Megabyte, voiced with delightfully elegant, yet still palpable malice by the late, great Tony Jay. Megabyte is Faux Affably Evil to the nth degree. He is well-spoken and largely Large and In Charge, presenting the façade of a gentlemanly Mafia don. Scratch the surface just a bit too much, though, and he can transform into a rampaging beast who will roar and claw his way through his foes with either spikes that he can grow from the backs of his hands ala Wolverine, or just his elongated finger nails, ala Lady Death-strike. Not only superspritely strong (he can pick up and shake this world’s version of a tank like a toy), fast (he ran down the tank in the first place) and endurable (nothing he is subjected to even shows him down for long), as well as incredibly intelligent in his own right, he also has a veritable army of binomes and military vehicles that he has corrupted into his service. Megabyte is the driving force of much of the conflict throughout the entire series… just as a good villain should be. Hack and Slash Megabytes Elite Enforcers… for a certain value of “elite”, at any rate. Your typical Dumb Muscle duo, Hack and Slash are a team of a red and blue sprite that look like top heavy robots with ball bearings for feet. While also being extremely strong, they tend to ruin whatever plan Megabyte has going due to their incompetence and lack of intelligence. It isn’t really until later seasons that they exhibit any real differences in behaviour. Slash (blue) is voiced by Garry Chalk (i.e Optimus Primal) and Hack (red) by Scott McNeil (i.e Rat-trap). While they fear and obey Megabyte, they are by no means as evil as he is, and eventually start exhibiting a kind inner nature (especially Slash). Hexadecimal Where Megabyte represents the far extreme of Order, Hexadecimal is his polar opposite, representing Chaos. Her powers are varied and fairly reminiscent of Scarlet Witch from the Marvel franchise. She can levitate at will, use telekinesis and create and launch gigantic blasts of red energy. She also shows an ability to control Nulls to a degree. Her power is often described as “transfinite” within the show, which pretty much means she can pack more of a punch than any other being, while still being limited. Her main feature is her face… or perhaps, lack of one. She wears a Tragedy/Comedy type mask that is static, her changes in expression for the most part taking place between scenes, or in jump cuts. If ever “shown” on screen, the actual transition is hidden by the movement of her arm or hand, usually with a subtle "whoosh" audio cue. The expressions she shows range from just slightly Uncanny Valley to utterly Nightmarish (just see her pictures above). She is simply Mane-iac levels of bonkers, which is usually why she doesn’t just wreck the show, either losing interest/focus or being manipulated into undoing her own works. She also has a pretty obvious crush on Bob, which may or may not be a plot point in any given episode. Her companion / familiar is Scuzzy, a combination of pet cat and looking glass. (Pictured below) Daemon A so-called Super-Virus introduced during the events of Season 2/3, but unseen until Season 4. To go into too much detail would be to spoil a lot of the series, but she is extremely powerful, able to brainwash almost anyone into serving her. Supporting Characters Phong The de facto leader of the system (its Command Dot Com), Phong has great wisdom and a deep understanding of the computer world, which he will bestow upon anyone… who can beat him at Pong, his favourite game. Although this does become less of an issue as the series progresses. Perhaps because Bob totally crushes him every time we see the two play. His two favourite phrases appear to be “Oh, dear…” and “This is not the Super-Computer, Bob”. He plays a sort of Confucian mentor, often making cryptic statements and calling sprites who are not his children “my son” and “my daughter”. He also looks more like whatever ET is than a regular humanoid sprite, but he is still one of the biggest forces for Good in the series. Mike the TV While he ostensibly belongs to Bob, who really, really regrets losing the remote, Mike is a sentient, animate TV with legs. He is frequently loud and annoying, prone to using his screen/face to show infomercials such as “Bucket ‘o Nothing for just 99.99.99!” He also moonlights as Mainframe’s main reporter / news announcer. Although he does get on the other characters’ nerves most of the time, he has in the past stepped up to the plate to assist our heroes. And sometimes he just flat out creates disasters, but we'll get to that. Mouse An in-universe Hacker, Mouse is originally introduced as an antagonist hired by Megabyte to do covert acts of a nefarious nature. She also has a history with Bob, the two of them having clashed before in the Super-Computer, and Bob even managing to “arrest” her, despite her skills. After vanishing (literally) for a few episodes after her introduction, Mouse eventually returns and joins in as an anti-villain and eventually an ally of the protagonists. She also has a katana... And a ship... named "Ship"... look, nobody said she was creative in naming things. She also has a Southern drawl. With all of our main (first season) cast introduced, I think this is a great stopping point. I’ll save a summary of the episodes for next time, and there will probably be some kind of wrap-up and general discussion before I most onto the next show I’d like to talk about. For some reason, I have a lot of time sitting at home these days, so expect those when they arrive. So, have you watched ReBoot? If so, what are your thoughts on the series? If you didn't... might you like to now? Any other general comments of encouragement, condemnation or .... no, pretty much just the first one, please. Stay safe, stay healthy, and of course, stay sunny side up!
  5. As some of you may know, Sonic the Hedgehog is my favorite video game series to date. I loved every game from Sonic 1 to Generations, I even loved the bad ones like 06, Shadow, and Black Knight. But due to SEGA's recent financial loss, they are looking to reboot the entire Sonic series. And, its taking alot of inspiration from Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. This, to me, doesn't sound very good. But anyways, here is the list of the supposed changes to Sonic: SEGA and Sonic Team are looking to Monetize Sonic. Its gonna be a massive and total reboot. They are commited to the reboot. Speed, Platforming, and surreal environments are the same. Sonic and Eggman's rivalry will continue. Sonic and Eggman will get a massive makeover. Everything else (Yes, everything.) are seeing radical changes. Including Tails. New universe and characters. New gameplay and gimmicks. New engine. No concern of photo realism, Might be Like Burnout Paradise. Zones return as massive levels with a bunch of missions. Could have models/figures for collection to target the young audience. Also used to unlock special features in-game. New cartoon series is thought of. Classic characters are DLC. From my impressions, most of it doesn't sound good. With the new universe, and ideas from other games, I just think it won't be such a good idea. Also, about the makeovers, I think that Sonic and Eggman will look ridiculous. Granted, that may be because I am thinking of Skylanders, but still... I also like the fact they are having figures (Because I like to collect those) and a cartoon show (Maybe), but, I hope they don't focus to little on the game itself, and just make a bunch of figurines to collect. I have the feeling the gameplay will be radically changed as well, and not for the better. If SEGA is inspired by Skylanders and Burnout Paradise, I think its a bad idea to take those ideas, and put them into Sonic. Don't get me wrong, I am welcome to change, and I like change, but it doesn't seem like it fits. In short: I think it won't turn out so well because of the radical change and ideas from said games. What is your opinion on this?
  6. As you many of you know this already, the super bowl's commercial released a teaser trailer for The Twilight zone Reboot by Jordon Peele. I'm pretty excited about this actually, not only because The twilight zone is one of my favorite old show but Jordon Peele is a horror cinema's genius. After a successful movie "Get out" I knew Jordon will be a perfect candidate to make a reboot of the Twilight Zone. now... I hope this is not a "super bowl" joke but I believe it's legit. The series will be aired on April 1st. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/wjmn59/twilight-zone-teaser-jordan-peele-host-rod-serling-release-date-vgtrn Free feel to share some thoughts on this.
  7. Hey. You know what really grinds my gears? Reboot titles. We all know that Hollywood shoots out reboots like a rapid-fire crap machine. Some of them are actually good and warranted, though. Many are grave injustices. But what annoys me to no end is when they give the reboot the exact same title as the original! No subtitle, nothing to differentiate it! This drives me f*ckin nuts, because you constantly have to describe which one you're talking about. Dates are ascribed to movies and games just to be able to tell what we're talking about. Take these for example: DOOM. Are we talking about this: Or this? Star Trek. This? Or this? Tomb Raider. This? Or this?! Ghostbusters. This?! OR THIS?!! I think I've made my case. Give them a frigging subtitle! Tomb Raider Origins, Star Trek Reborn, y'know, something like that! Instead we have to call them Tomb Raider 2013, Ghostbusters 2016, New Star Trek, Abrams Star Trek, sh*t like that. AAARRG!!! It burns me so much!! I had to type in the dates or "original" just to find the right images on Google! AAAARRRR!!!! Franchises that did it right? The Dark Knight, Man of Steel. What a novel idea. They didn't just call it Batman, and Superman. Now we know what we're talking about. The moral of the story is give reboots a different title or a subtitle, god dammit!
  8. When I first heard about the Duck Tales reboot I was a little skeptical, I mean most reboots aren't (to put it nicely) very good or anything like the original. But today I found out something that makes me want to check it out :David Tennant has been cast as Scrooge McDuck! I know, this doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be good or like the original, but anything with the Tenth Doctor is worth checking out! I know I'm going to check it out, but what are your thoughts? Here's the link to the original article: http://tennantnews.blogspot.com/2016/12/david-tennant-cast-as-scrooge-mcduck-in.html
  9. [MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD] I don't know how many people remember the old Reboot cartoon where people known as sprites lived in a computer system known as Mainframe, but as far as I'm concerned it was one of the most well written animated shows of all time (and one of the earliest CGI shows). The other day I had this horrible dream that they brought back Reboot as a live action series that was basically a ripoff to Power Rangers and had almost nothing to do with the original series. And the worst part of the dream is that they waited until the finale to bring back the original characters and the fans of the original show were portrayed as basement-dwelling neckbeards. Good thing that was just a dream. Oh wait....
  10. I heard on the radio today that Netflix is rebooting Lost In Space. For you youngins, it was an old TV show from back in the '60s. A new pilot came out in 2004 but wasn't picked up as a series; you can watch this on YouTube. There's also a movie that came out in '98. The DJ asked the listeners, what classic TV show would you like to see come back as a new series, and I thought I pass that along here. So what would you like to see come back? Me? I'd like to see a new Green Hornet series. I really liked the original that came out in the mid-sixties. It starred Van Williams and Bruce Lee (his first TV role). It was made by the same folks that produced the Batman series, but GH was a bit more darker and dramatic. I also saw the GH movie and really liked it, even though I think it bombed in the theater, and would like to see the same kind of characterizations. I also though Time Tunnel would be cool, but time travel's been done to death. Than I thought, how 'bout Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, but that's already been done as SeaQuest DSV.
  11. Hi everypony, I was wondering what different forms of MLP merchandise everypony has been enjoying lately? Unlike many I actually love how the new brushable ponies look, even better than before! What do you guys think?
  12. As you all are aware, it seems this generation of My Little Pony is about to come to an end, with a new generation coming in 2020(Wish the Simpsons and Family Guy did the same thing). But that being said, I had my own idea for a My Little Pony reboot. I call it "My Little Pony: Orphans of Equestria." The series would be much darker than Friendship is MAgic, with a color scheme inspired by Steven Universe. Also Backstory: Equestria. A place where Ponies of all sorts trot and gallop their way through. A place made of Magitek. Magic-based Technology. But under all that happiness lies a system rotten to the core. Once Equestria had Princesses and a Parliament that ruled with a kind spirit. It is now ruled by Chancellor Abacus Cinch, with an Iron Hoof. The whole world now lives in a facade of harmony, with non-Pony species being rounded up into slave camps. Note: With the exception of Nicole Oliver and Iris Quinn, every Pony will be recast in terms of Voice Actress Celestia Del Sol(Ideal Voice Actress: Nicole Oliver): The Main protagonist of the story. Long ago, Celestia and her sister Luna were cast out from Equestrian Leadership by Abacus Cinch. Since then, she has dedicated her time as caretaker of orphan ponies, with her assistant Sunset Shimmer at her side. But deep on the inside, she is building up a rebellion to save her own kingdom from Cinch. Since then, she has been on the look out for her sister Luna Della Notte Sunset Shimmer(Ideal Voice Actress: Will be recasted. Some ideal actresses include Britt McKilip, Chiara Zanni, and Sophia Ewaniuk) The assistant to Celestia. Long ago, Sunset Shimmer lost her parents to a horrible house fire, and has been adopted by Celestia as a surrogate daughter. She sees the world as a cruel a bitter place, all while Celestia tries to reassure her that it's far from it. Abacus Cinch(Ideal Voice Actress: Iris Quinn): Chancellor of Equestria, now its sole ruler. She overthrew Celestia and Luna to become the ruler of Equestria, even going as far as to abolish the Parliament. Her dream is to create a world where only the strongest Ponies rule, and everyone else is used only for mining out all the resources of the entire planet. A cold and cruel leader, she stops at nothing to gain what she wants. Twilight Sparkle(Ideal Voice Actress: Will be recasted): An orphan unicorn child. She is seen by Sunset Shimmer as more of a younger sister. It is said that she is one of the six children of Harmony that serves as the means of protecting the innocent from evil(Take a wild guess who the other five are). She is more upbeat and full of life compared to Sunset. Starlight Glimmer(Ideal Voice Actress: Will also be recasted): Another orphan unicorn child, and the younger sister of Twilight Sparkle. She was traumatized to the loss of her own parents and has trouble readjusting her life. Sunset and Twilight do what they can to help out their younger sister. Tempest Shadow(Ideal Voice Actress: Ashleigh Ball): The number one soldier of Abacus Cinch, and the leader of Cinch's Templars(Basically a form of a Secret Police). She is as ruthless as her master, and will stop at nothing when it comes to enforcing her rule of law. Diamond Tiara: In the original, she was the spoiled rich alpha bitch of Spoiled Milk and Filthy Rich. This time, she is the daughter of Abacus Cinch. Unlike her previous counterpart, Diamond Tiara is more of a Spoiled Sweet teen who wants to see the beauty of the world, only for her mother to keep her isolated from the rest of the world. She dreams of breaking out of her only home so that she may see the world. Little does she know, she plays a part in the rebellion against her mother. Discord(Ideal Voice Actor: Scott McNeil or Vic Mignogna): The Guardian of the Everfree Forest, Spirit of Chaos, and a long time friend of Celestia. He is also the surrogate father of Fluttershy, a timid pegasus who's afraid of stepping out of the forest. Nightmare Moon: A Dark entity who was defeated long ago by Celestia and Luna. Since her defeat, her physical form was split into a number of artifacts that contained a small portion of her power. It is said that Cinch is fusing these artifacts into Luna Della Notte to create a new Nightmare Moon. One important change is that Canterlot is no longer the capital of Equestria. This time, it's Maretropolis, a giant Magitek Mega City bustling with Pony activity. CAnterlot and Ponyville returns, but serve as smaller cities this time around. What are your thoughts on my idea? What would you add to make this appealing?
  13. Reboot of this thread Rules: 1. This is my Game. And I only allow two things. Flawless calculations... and beauty! E.g. What I say goes. 2. Heh. Every inch of my work is flawlessly calculated. Look at the perfectly understated silhouette. How can you not see the beauty!? E.g. Don't try to move the plot along, I'll do that. 3. This is subtracting from my arts and crafts time. E.g. If your going to be away from the rp for over 1 week, let me know. Otherwise your character gets removed from the rp. (Ranks being in order of importance) ThunderClan Medicine Cat- Leader- Deputy Queens- Warriors- Apprentices- Kits- WindClan Medicine Cat- Silver Fur- Old silver she cat with green eyes (Blood Drops) Leader- Deputy Queens- Warriors- Apprentices- Kits- RiverClan Medicine Cat- Ice Flower Leader- Deputy Queens- Warriors- Apprentices- Kits- ShadowClan Medicine Cat- Leader- Deputy Queens- Warriors- Apprentices- Kits- P.s. You thinking that the leader is most important? You is wrong. If a leader is lost, the deputy replaces, if they are both lost then the most senior warrior would take over. If a medicine cat is lost, then the other clans would need to provide medical cat training to one chosen by star clan. Medicine cats are ranked the same as 'Teller of the Pointed Stones' or Healers
  14. Now that Samurai Jack is over, do you think Genndy Tartatovsky will do a Sym-Bionic Titan reboot?
  15. I am pretty sure everyone knows by now, but MST3K is getting a reboot! Joel Hodgson has completed the KickStarter and said he got new actors for the new reboot of MST3K!
  16. So Netflix announced a while back that Mystery Science Theater 3000 is coming back with another series directly to Netflix. I myself am excited cause I love Mystery Science theater 3000. Are you excited? Here's a preview of the new series https://youtu.be/5ct0Z2bQndM
  17. I really despise this reboot. The original show was golden until seasons 5 and 6 (they were alright, but they really weren't the same show) but this reboot is just half-Clarence, trendy garbage. Tell the story! Don't break your neck trying to make it trendy and for this generation! Who cares?!
  18. http://www.rotoscopers.com/2015/08/03/jim-hill-ducktales-reboot-is-cg-animated-darkwing-duck-and-kim-possible-reboots-could-follow/ According to this, not only will Duck Tales will be in CGI animated, but there's a possibility that two other well beloved disney cartoons in Darkwing Duck and Kim Possible. Personally, while I'm pleased to hear this possible news, however at the same time, I'm worried how they're going to treat these reboots as: 1. Duck Tales: easily a top ten cartoon for me as it was Duck Tales that first jumpstarted the renaissance the cartoons in the 90's had despite being a late 80's show. It was really one of the first cartoons in the 80's to break out of the whole 'use cartoons to advertise toy products and little else' that plagued alot of the cartoons in the 80's by being a quality cartoon. 2. Darkwing Duck: An underrated cartoon that was one of the better spinoffs from Duck Tales. Sibsy loves this cartoon. 3. Kim Possible: Considered one of the few good disney cartoons in 2000's and many considered the best of the bunch till Phineas and Ferb and Gravity Falls showed up. MLP analyst Ilovekimpossiblealot loves this cartoon. Thus when doing a reboot, it risks making these shows worse than what the originals are and it could damage these lofty opinions that were garnered for their effort and work. Look at Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go as an example of how a reboot can ruin a classic. On the other hand, seeing how serious Disney wants to cash in on the huge success of cartoons this decade is a good thing and I hope it can continue that trend in the 2020's in a good manner.
  19. There are many games in this world that, while being really good or having very unique concepts, they are forgotten about in time. Tis' the circle of life for some video games and it is a sad thing. There are games that are sooo awesome yet never see the light of day again. Here, we can share some of these. What are some games that you feel should be revived for modern day? It could be as simple porting the game to new systems or full blown remakes or sequels. Here are a couple for me: Windjammers A Neo Geo arcade game that was essentially a take on Pong, but it looks friggin' awesome. I never actually played it but I discovered it recently on YouTube and this is a game that I feel would be amazing today, even if it was just ported. It looks incredibly frantic, fast paced and fun. Stubbs the Zombie This was a comedic zombie game where you actually played as the zombie. The gameplay, while seeming simple at first, was addicting as you would create a zombie army throughout the levels to dispatch of foes more easily, as well as having your own combat abilities as well. I feel like this game would be a massive hit in the modern day and I am surprised that Microsoft has not brought this one back.
  20. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2015/06/09/cartoon-network-unveils-first-look-at-new-powerpuff-girls-series So after 20 years since the original aired we're getting a new incarnation of a show that many of us grew up with. I was a big fan of the original as a kid, I'm looking forward to this reboot. Unfortunately, not all news is good. We still have a year to go before it comes out and it's already causing drama. http://www.avclub.com/article/powerpuff-girls-voice-actor-feels-stabbed-heart-ne-220624 http://www.cartoonbrew.com/voice-acting/powerpuff-girl-actress-on-being-shut-out-of-reboot-a-stab-in-the-heart-114006.html Members of the original cast and crew (Like Lauren Faust, Tara Strong, Craig McCraken) aren't happy with the fact that Cartoon Network hired new voice actors and have been going on twitter posting angry and passive tweets. (Some of these tweets I'll link below) Now, I have to say this. Seriously? This is a reboot, yes? What the hell were you expecting?! This kind of stuff happens all the time whenever there's another entry in a franchise. I mean, yes, It would have been nice if they had asked the original VAs but I'm not expecting them to go around asking every single VA from the original show. This is a new generation, it's a fresh slate. This happens all the time whenever a franchise gets another entry. It's been nearly 20 years since the original aired, this isn't a shock. Allow me to throw in a comparison guys. As you all you all know, I'm a fan of multiple franchises. The ones I bring up mostly are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Spider-Man and Batman. Look at how many incarnations of those four there have been. You might get one VA back, maybe a couple more if you're lucky but you're not going to get the whole cast back. This is really nothing new. I know I bring up TMNT a lot but the comparison is fitting. When the next generation of TMNT comes out I'm not going to expect Rob Paulson, Seth Green, Sean Aston and Greg Cipes to voice the Turtles nor do I think that the original voice actors from the '87 series (Rob Paulson, Townsend Colemen, Cam Clarke and Barry Gordon) should be the only one to voice the turtles. It's the same here. You can't expect the same voice actors to voice the same characters all the time. I think this was really immature of the original cast and crew. I expected better behavior from Tara, Lauren, Craig and everyone else partaking in this tantrum. EDIT: My apologies to the original cast. If it was just Tom Kenny coming back, I'd still think they'd be over-reacting but since they brought back more VAs for the supporting cast and even the VA of one the main villains, now I see the issue. I still take issue with Lauren Faust and Craig McCraken's tweets though.
  21. He's the greatest, he's fantastic, wherever there is danger he'll be there... Danger Mouse, one of the heroes odf my childhood, got a reboot on CBBC. Judging from the first 2 epsiodes I watched, it is amazingly well done, slightly modernized, but still keeping the classic's charm.
  22. As we all know, reboots and terrible, money grubbing sequels are rampant today. I just watched the preview for this Terminator Genisys nonsense. You know, it feels like they're making fun of their own franchise. The whole movie looks like one big internet meme joke. Rather than coming with asinine ways to keep franchises running, it might be nice if they used that money to...idk...come up with something new, perhaps? You know? And then there's the reboots. Not just reboots, but reboots of reboots. Hey, now THERE'S and idea! They should reboot Reboot! Anyway, I believe I heard they're planning an Alien reboot. Wouldn't surprise me. That's really sad. I wonder when the Blade Runner reboot is coming? *shudders* So, my question is, what movie do want to see be made? Or, what movie do you think should be rebooted? I want a reboot of Dune. That's a movie that really deserves a modern, proper, good version. The orignal wasn't very good, imo, and it tried to cram too much into too short of time. We need a version that's about six hours. Like, two 3-hour movies. So what do you want to see?
  23. Hey so I heard a rumor that they were considering rebooting the old TV show chaotic and decided to go and log into my old account on the game, sadly as it turns out that is impossible because it shut down about a year ago. anyways I was just wondering if anyone on these forums used to play it, and if so would like to see the game or series started back up again?
  24. In case you missed it, Cartoon Network announced a little while back that The Powerpuff Girls are getting a reboot series, due sometime next year. While we still don't have footage, the fact that CN hasn't completely forgoten where it came from is great news. Hopefully, they get someone competent to do it justice. Who knows, maybe this means FiM will have some competition in the "girl power" arena.
