but i still want a remake

senpa1111  asked:

Was the 80s Japanese version of volrton still called voltron or did it go by a different name?? (I want to watch all types to compare them)

American:  Voltron: defender of the universe 

Japanese:  Beast King Golion 

(not to mention there’s like 5 billion different remakes including a horrific 3D version) 

It’s still hot as satan’s asscrack here in Alabama and let me tell you, the last thing I wanted to do after getting back from my speedwork was cook. But! With six weeks until my big race I’m in Shit’s About To Get Real Mode and I can’t afford to be lazy right now. So on I went with the homemade black bean burgers that were on the menu plan…. (begrudgingly)

Ohmygod. THEY WERE SO GOOD. Scott liked them so much he ate two and requested to have them once a week. #feelsgoodman

Sinnoh Confirmed

Many people may not have noticed this, but I found this pretty damn intriguing.

Now I’m sure many were upset by the Direct and I was as well and still am.

I noticed a very awesome Easter Egg that to me directly confirms Sinnoh Remakes are coming.

And it’s all in this picture. Take a look in the background all the Main title generations are there….except one. Which one is it I wonder?

Before people say it’s behind his head there’s also this screenshot as well

Awfully strange that Nintendo would not put Diamond, Pearl, nor Platinum in the background image, especially since every other generation is on there,

I think the reasoning they’re doing it is obvious, cause they want to hype up the Sinnoh remakes and make people hyped.

Not a single indication of Sinnoh in the background which means it’s coming.

I want a Sharkboy and Lavagirl remake where the CGI is insanely good and the acting is super emotional and intriguing, but nothing about the story changes. Sharkboy still has to sing the dream song and mister Electricidad still has to go “YOU ARE IN MY CLASS!!! NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND”

You know what I want. I want a Sky High remake so that they can continue it into a series. Picture this:

Sky High Remake. Freshman year. Same plot, same characters, Will is still a dipshit, but it’s less 00s looking with modern fashion, modern acting people, better CGI. Make Warren Peace gayer. Sets up the whole series. 

Sky High Sequel. Sophomore year. The main character is Layla. The hero and sidekick set up has been demolished. Now students who have sidekick powers are in the same classes as students with bad ass powers and are getting the butts kicked constantly. The main characters fight over weather or not this is better and their friend group splits in two. They don’t talk to each other as Layla desperately tries to make everyone get along. Eventually they have to put their fighting aside to fight the Gym Coach and his army of bullies who has been secretly setting up former sidekicks to fail so that all the heroes of the future aren’t “lame.” They take him down and compromise, agreeing that people should be matched by power level but not separated.

Sky High 3. Junior year. The main character is Ethan (puddle guy). He wakes up without his powers. He doesn’t tell anyone because he thinks nobody will like him if he has no powers and that they’ll come back soon enough. Slowly he realizes that other kids have lost their powers too but aren’t telling anyone. The group befriends Sophomore known for not having any powers at all whose there because his parents have powers. Turns out he knows the ins and outs of the school really well and he helps them as they go on a mission to discover what happened to their powers. This new guy starts dating Warren. Finally the whole team has to fight the villain, a new character with sidekick parents, who has been stealing the powers of the students to make himself stronger so he can be the best hero ever.

Sky High 4. Senior year. The main character is Warren. We finally get to see his family and what it’s like with one hero parent and one villain parent. His parents don’t live together because his dad Baron Battle is in jail but it’s weird. But he learns his dad has broken out of jail. This makes things really weird for him and Will as Will’s parents are out looking for him. Eventually Warren and Will have a big fight, using their powers, and they both get suspended. Finally, at Prom, Warren’s dad appears at the school to try to get Warren to be his henchman. Warren refuses and they all have to fight Warren’s dad. 

ISN’T THIS A GOOD FUCKIN IDEA?!?!

beginner’s guide to horror movies

Okay, so you’ve seen a few scary movies and enjoyed them, and now you’re looking to expand your horror prowess. Maybe you’ve been reading/listening to a lot of creepypasta, and you feel like you’re ready to take the plunge. Or maybe you just have a feeling that you’d like horror, but have no idea where to start. 

I’ve been a huge fan of all things creepy and scary for years. I was just reading an article called, “Horror Gems You Haven’t Seen Yet” and realized that I actually had seen almost every film on the list, so I guess that makes me an expert. So, my new baby horror fans, allow me to introduce you to the genre.

Yoonkook week - Day 4: free day

from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (USA, 2017)
[x] the film’s tag

(Please excuse the crappy quality of the gifs, I will remake them once we have something better to work with.)

Can we please talk about how perfect Emma’s delivery of her lines is? In particular, her “I don’t know.” and later “I love you.”?

The whole post-dance dialogue is actually pretty amazing. The Beast clearly doesn’t want to tell her how he feels, certain she will refuse him. Then he glances back to the ballroom where his servants stood just a moment ago, the very same people who got into this shit because of him and still they help him and care for him, and he finally makes himself ask her if she could ever love him. And you can see that Belle is in no way dismissive of his feelings or his question, she knows by now that she cares for him, that there’s “something there”, but she cannot say she loves him back because she genuinely doesn’t know yet if what she feels is love.

And then, when the Beast dies in her arms, it’s plain from her face that her world just fell apart and she keeps calling him back, completely heartbroken, because her heart, her home, her everything is gone. And then she says “I love you”, it is a confession of a girl who just realized how deep her feelings actually are, she even sounds a bit surprised by it. Like I said, flawless delivery. <3

Director and Producer interview for Free-Timeless Medley-

In 2013 Free aired on TV
In 2014 Free! Eternal Summer aired on TV
and then in 2015 the movie High Speed! -Free! Starting Days- opened in theaters.

In order to tie these three works together, we are making reconstruction films to put them in chronological order.
The movie ‘Free!-Timeless Medley- Bonds’ will be from the Iwatobi members perspective and
The movie ‘Free!-Timeless Medley- Promise’ will be from the Samezuka member’s perspective. Then, the movie Free!-Take Your Marks- is them proceeding onto the next stage all together.

To show the sparkle of their youth, show their irreplaceable time with friends, and to show them taking off straight from the past to the future, the purpose of this project is tie everything together through these 3 works.
Please watch as they take off from the Iwatobi City stage, to the stage known as the world.

Producer Hata Shinichiro

The Free! series started being aired four years ago. I have been involved with this series since then and ran through their youthful days together. Now, when I think back on it, they are still brightly sparkling irreplaceable memories. We are to remake that “Free!” now, in 2017.

Why do we need Free! now?

Why is this work important today?

Recently there have been a lot of incidents that have made it hard to see the future. We live in a world where you don’t know what to believe in. And in this world, there are young boys and girls who don’t know their own feelings and don’t have self-confidence.

I want to show those boys and girls Haruka and Rin —who face the things they like, believe in, and think are important, and then they work as hard as they can, growing every day. Who, even when they run into troubles, still continue forward with strong feelings— and I want them to feel something. I want them to find what they live for, and what they find important, and maybe just gain some aspirations and self-confidence. I want everyone who sees it to be moved at least a little bit.

It is with that in mind that we are literally “rebooting” this Free! series.

We the creators have grown with them, and they have been running through our minds. I hope that their dreams, growth, and their beautiful bodies come rushing out of the screen in order to cheer people up.

What lies in the future, what’s waiting? Please wait for the complete picture. I’m sure you’ll find the answer.

Director Kawanami Eisaku(AnimationDo)

guess it’s time for my first follow forever with this blog! :’) I could never imagine I would reach this milestone so fast, especially after remaking and turning my writing around. and even if numbers are not really that important, it is still heartwarming and incredibly touching to see 6,000 people giving me and my writing a (second) chance.

Canon Anti

I decided to try remaking a still from the PAX Anti vid in terms of style and glow. It’s not exactly a remake as the bloops from that video haven’t been released but I wanted to try to do the general style. In that way, it is a remake. It’s still not exactly perfect but I like the look of it. Hopefully you all do as well! :)

anonymous asked:

How likely do you think Sinnoh remakes are this generation?

Well, it’s obviously hard to answer that question for sure, but let me just say that to my knowledge, in X/Y there weren’t all that many parallels to Hoenn in the games, and they had no real reason to make the Gen 3 games again (since the first 2 set of remakes were for compatibility reasons), but they did anyways. In contrast, there are quite a few parallels between Sun and Moon and Gen 4 in general. 

Firstly, the obvious one is Type:Null and Silvally, who are basically mini artificial Arceus, as evidences by Null’s helmet matching Arceus’s Fence of Power™ and Silvally’s ability literally being “Arceus System” (ever since these games came out I’ve had to condition myself to pronounce it that way). As my friend pointed out a while ago, there’s also a mention of there being 3 Type:Null; one for Gladion, one for you, and one for… well, either a sequel to Sun and Moon or Sinnoh remakes perhaps? 

Secondly, we have the general themes, motifs, and plot elements. Sinnoh was all about space, time, and the distortion world, and in SuMo we had Ultra Space, which is clearly another dimension that is quite distorted. You could easily draw a link between any of the 3 Sinnoh title legends and Ultra Beasts as a concept, so the potential of introducing new ones would be extremely easy with an existing premise like that. Sinnoh remakes would also most likely mean Z moves for the starters, and I can’t think of a starter line that would have cooler exclusive Z moves than Infernape, Empoleon, and Torterra. 

Thirdly, if Sinnoh remakes were on the horizon, it would make sense that the concentration of Sinnoh Pokemon in SuMo would be pretty low, as you don’t want too much overlap. Doing the math, about 8% of all Pokemon in the Alola Pokedex are from Sinnoh; the second smallest after Kalos. However, almost exactly half of these Sinnoh Pokemon are only there by necessity of previous evolutions being there, like Magnezone and Porygon Z. Taking these out puts the number at about 4%, just a hair lower than Kalos. So this would seem to be in order as well. 

And finally, some random “evidence”. Cynthia and Looker are both in the game; there presence means nothing on its own as Cynthia was in Black and White and Looker was in X/Y, but it’s a parallel nonetheless. There’s also articles in Burnet’s lab talking about Palkia, Giratina, and Bronzong’s dimensional abilities, a curious coincidence since they’re all Sinnoh Pokemon:

I didn’t know Giratina was from Arkansas

There’s also the allusion to Crasher Wake, one of the Gym Leaders from Sinnoh: 

Which is likely just a random bit of dialogue, but another coincidence no less. If you want a truly random coincidence though, remember Cyrus? Leader of Team Galactic (another coincidence by name right there by the way, galaxies, sun and moon…)? Well, one interpretation of the meaning of his name is, in fact, “Sun”, which is pretty funny. Incidentally, the name “Cynthia” was originally an epithet of the Greek goddess of the moon. This is 100% sheer coincidence but it’s pretty amusing given the current situation. 

There’s also this video, uploaded to the Japanese Youtube channel a few months ago. It’s just a storybook mini video, showcasing a small story for fun (in Japanese). However, interestingly the choice of the stars of the video were the 3 Sinnoh starters, Piplup, Turtwig, and Chimchar. Seems odd considering we’re still in Alola mode.

Anyways, considering that Masuda confirmed in an interview in late 2016 that the team is still interested in the remake approach, I think that the prospect of Sinnoh remakes eventually is certainly on the table. However, over the part 4 -5 years they’ve also made it clear that they want to be as unpredictable as possible, so even with all of this it’s hard to be sure about what will wind up happening.

My review of BatB (2017): part one

So … I finally got a chance to see the film today. After years and years of waiting for a live-action remake of one my favorite Disney movies, I’m sad to say that I left the theater feeling underwhelmed and disappointed.


WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!


First the things I hated/disliked:


Emma Watson as Belle. Wow, talk about bad casting. To think I actually once thought she would be a good choice for the role, but that was before I knew this film would be a musical. Back when I still had hope that she would grow as an actress. I tried to remain optimistic. I wanted to wait and see for my myself if she had improved, but the truth is … no, she hasn’t. If anything she’s even more boring, stiff, snobby and unemotional than ever. Her singing isn’t even singing at all imo. It’s sounds more like she’s just talking but with music playing in the background. She’s really, really auto-toned and hearing her “sing” next to truly talented people (like Audra McDonald) is just embarrassing. She is by far the weakest part of the whole film. It only makes the way people have been hyping about her version of Belle all the more silly. What is so groundbreaking about Emma Watson’s portrayal??


One of the biggest problems with her in this role is that Belle is supposed to be the most interesting girl in her village, but EW is about as interesting as a plain slice of bread. She also lacks the warmth, charm and vulnerability of Disney’s animated Belle. EW’s version comes across as bored, snobbish and unemotional. She doesn’t come across as a daydreamer - as someone who genuinely feels like an outsider. Instead she gives off an arrogant vibe that says “I’m not like other girls”. She even says at one point “Oh, I’m not a princess” - and not in a humble way like Ella does in Cinderella (2015) - no, she says it like she actually hates the title of ~princess. As if that were something offensive?? I can’t understand why the people in the village (especially Gaston) are so fascinated by her. To make this more believable Disney should have cast a more charismatic actress.


I could give Emma Watson a pass for what she did to Hermione, but I will NOT give her a pass for what she did to Belle. Mainly because I hate the attitude she’s been having towards animated Belle/live-action Cinderella. These characters are very special to me and I don’t like seeing people put them down. Also, Emma’s brand of feminism is shit and completely old school imo. I hate how much creative control she had on this film. Here are just some other things she did that really annoy me:


1. How can you sign on to do a period film when you refuse to wear a corset/stays???? Like seriously… I hate that her reasoning for not wearing them is because it’s apparently “un-feminist”. Yeah, because it’s super feminist to define women by what they wear. Let’s act like Cinderella isn’t an admirable person because she did house work and wore stays. Let’s pretend women like Jane Austen weren’t total badasses because they wore corsets.


2. Why make Belle an inventor? Why not make her a writer instead? This never seemed like something the animated Belle was interested in. Sure, it’s possible she would learn some of these things from her dad, but it still seems like such an odd character change to me. I might be alone here but this also came across as Emma/the script writers saying to me: If a woman doesn’t invent something or make “history” somehow, then her story is not empowering or even worth telling.


3. And out of all the cool/weird things she could have invented … why a washing machine? I know it’s because she’d rather read books instead, but this comes across as more dissing towards women who do house work. Has this Belle ever washed a dish by hand?? Would it really be so awful for her to just wash her clothes by hand like everyone else?? Even in today’s modern age (with lots of different electric appliances) people still do things by hand.


4. According to Emma, her Belle is an “active princess”, but I can’t remember her doing many other activities except reading. Did I miss something? As far as I can tell Cinderella was way more busy than this Belle was. Ella not only did house work but she also did farm work, horseback riding AND she did it while wearing a corset/flats. Emma promoted this new Belle as “Not your mother’s Disney princess” (this from the recent Vanity Fair issue) and yet I don’t see what’s so amazing/progressive about her version of the character. Throwing away your corsets and exchanging your flats for boots is not enough to “wow” me.


There’s a lot more I want to talk about, but I’ll save that for tomorrow in part two of my review.

Everything Politically Correct About Beauty and the Beast

Hollywood has been dry of creativity in recent years, so they figure instead of just doing remakes of classic films, they can “modernize” them. From black Annie to the all-female Ghostbusters, it was only a matter of time until Disney got in on the PC action. 

Here is everything that is politically correct about the new live-action Beauty and the Beast.

(Warning: Politically-Correct Spoilers)

1. The “poor provincial town” is very diverse. 

Despite the film taking place in 1700s France, the cross-section of the people there could have been borrowed from contemporary New York City. And yes, slavery was a thing in 1700s France. Sure, this is a fairytale, but this film namedrops real-life things like Shakespeare, so there is an element of realism in this universe. While it’s nice to be inclusive, seeing people of color singing and dancing in a time period when they were slaves eliminates believably. Either fully commit to it like Hamilton or don’t. And the town earns extra PC points for having a black guy run the bookshop. 

2. Belle is a feminist. 

What made Belle so brilliant in the original animated film was that she was intelligent, independent, and kind. Even when she turned down Gaston, she was still charming. In the new film, Belle (played by Emma Watson) was actually pretty mean to Gaston! She definitely had a “I’m a woman, hear me roar” attitude that sorta tainted Belle’s gentle nature. And to drive the feminism message even further, they added a scene of her teaching a little girl how to read and showing a couple of townspeople scowling at her for it. 

3. LeFou is gay. 

The new Beauty and the Beast film got lots of free press when it was announced that they made LeFou, Gaston’s sidekick, gay (a first for any Disney film). Upon seeing the film, the controversy was waaaaaay overblown. In a nutshell, he’s flamboyant, drops a couple of verbal hints, and shares a brief romantic embrace with Gaston (which was solely meant for comedic effect). Honestly, unless you’re a bible thumper, this isn’t a big deal. That said, while the filmmakers can be seen as brave for making LeFou gay, they’re definitely cowardly for making him a good guy in the end. According to Political Correctness 101, you can’t make a gay guy a villain. Throughout the film, LeFou expresses sympathy for others and after being left for dead by Gaston in the third act, he decides to help the inanimate objects fight the mob that crashed the castle. So in short, making LeFou gay? Whatever. Making him good? Weak. 

4. Interracial relationships are totally common. 

Remember how controversial it was when a Cheerios commercial featured an interracial family? Well Disney wanted to top it by having not one but two interracial relationships in the Beauty and the Beast remake. One relationship was between Lumière (Ewan McGregor) and Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), aka the feather duster, and the other was Madame Garderobe (Audra McDonald), aka the wardrobe, and a brand new character Maestro Cadenza (Stanley Tucci), aka a grand piano. Granted, at least 90% of their screen time is in CGI-mode, but that 10% of the time that they aren’t, they flaunt it. 

5. Women can be angry villagers too!

In the original film, Gaston led a mob full of angry men from the village to “kill the beast” and you see a woman and her child waving to the men from the window as they go marching into battle. Obviously, it’s sexist to force women to stay at home to protect the children. So in the new film, women get to fight too! 

6. Gaston shows us that guns are EVIL. 

In the climax of the animated film, Gaston’s weapons of choice were a bow and arrow and a knife on The Beast. So naturally in the 2017 remake, he uses a scary gun instead. The subliminal messaging ain’t so subliminal Disney!

In Conclusion

Look, the new Beauty and the Beast is still entertaining and fun for the whole family.  Is there a chance that I’m simply overanalyzing this movie? Perhaps. But there’s something that I want to make very clear. It’s okay to have a diverse village. It’s okay to have interracial relationships. It’s okay to make someone gay. Just because I point these things out, it doesn’t mean they’re bad. However, what’s bad is Hollywood’s lack of creativity. They think by changing the race or sexual orientation of famous characters of the past is “fresh and original.” If being fresh and original is their ultimate goal, maybe they shouldn’t remake a tale as old as time.
