HOW DID NO ONE TELL ME THERE WAS AN EMPIRE COVER?! THAT I DESPERATELY NEED.
Bill Walko’s hilarious Teen Titans cartoons. Especially love the Friday the 13th
Check out his deviantart
I love me some Titans!
How can you look at these and not love 70s Titans?
The quality of the actual comics themselves is immaterial! Look at how cool these pictures are instead
Lol no don’t think so. Though a third movie has been speculated for the last few years. I’m spamming because I’m in the mood LOL…plus we’ve been doing a massive rewatch. Fav show of all time.
Is someone else Xfiles spamming?
I got a lot of independent people talking about X-Files lately on here and facebook. It’s probably just one of those weird things where a whole bunch of people randomly get back into an old fandom at the same time.
"LEGEND OF SANCTUARY" PULLED OUT OF JAPANESE THEATERS
Sad news for Saint Seiya fans. According to CavZodiaco, “Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary" is being pulled out of japanese theaters after only three weeks of its release. The new Saint Seiya movie shared the same fate that its predecessor, "Heaven Chapter Overture" suffered a decade ago.
The movie received praise for its visual effects but was met with criticism over the script, which critics felt it was rushed, predictable and unrelatable to new audiences.
“Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary" bombed at the box office, netting US$2,5 million on its domestic run over an estimated U$30 million budget. The movie still have its international run with theatrical releases confirmed in Hong Kong, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Italy.
“which critics felt it was rushed, predictable and unrelatable to new audiences.”
No shit on rushed, what were they thinking doing the whole Sanctuary arc in one movie?? That’d be like trying to do a whole trilogy of books in one movie :/ Not only was there not enough time to get all the things that made an impact in there (relationships like DM-Shiryu, Camus-Hyoga, Seiya-Aiolia, etc), but even without that, I heard they had to gloss over half the fights. No Shaka-Ikki?? Really?? Really. (would any fight have been cooler in full animation? don’t mind me just sitting here in my tears of those missed chances and dumbass decisions)
'Predictable' is kind of a strange one for a series that's been out for 20+ years, also for a shounen…I wouldn't say the Sanctuary arc was near as formuliac as Asgard and Poseidon, but hey, I guess fair enough.
But ‘unrelatable’?? What are the kids watching these days?? How more relatable do you get than 5 guys going on an RPG quest of bosses to save the equivalent of the princess? As in the essential plot of like 80% of all fantasy fiction ever? Like.
How sad what a nail in the coffin this is probably going to be for any new material regarding to the series :/ There goes the hopes and dreams of a 3D Hades arc (much like the hopes and dreams of seeing Rhada animated in LC before it was pulled…damn it’s hard out here for a specter fan)
I think unrelatable refers more to the fact that really there’s no connection with the characters. They don’t have real personalities and there’s no emotional value in their quest like there was in the original. They didn’t start out knowing Saori (except Seiya) they just show up and go LET’S SAVE HER BECAUSE ITS OUR DUTY. Even in most RPG’s we get to see their motivations and why. And all of that was cut out in this movie because it was rushed.
Honestly, other people saying that the Japanese aren’t “true fans” and that’s why the movie flopped couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m a fan of the original but everything about this movie just seems to be a slap in the face to the spirit of the original. It’s the Bayformers of Japan.
And maybe the Japanese fans are just smarter than we are when it comes to terrible remakes of our childhood. We bitch on the internet but give the franchise billions, they vote with their dollars.
Not gonna lie even if this turns out to be a terrible trainwreck, I would totally buy this as a poster. I have a thing for comic art done all watercolor style.
Honestly, I’m surprised anyone thought a con based on tumblr culture was going to result in anything BUT a hilarious well documented trainwreck.
Hulu is now streaming episodes of Classic Saint Seiya on their website, with subtitles. And for the English speaking fandom, they are good subtitles!
No more ‘boob’ characters! Actual high quality.
