The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

Silver Screen / Re: A Winnie the Pooh Indie Slasher Movie Coming

Doubt I'll ever watch it.  Now, a Barney slasher film I might watch just out of morbid curiosity, but I'v no desire to see this.

I don't get this weird obsession with killing off members of the gang that this fandom has.  I stopped reading fanfiction for pretty much that same reason.

Silver Screen / Re: Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi (May 27th, 2022)

It's an incredibly powerful scene that makes up for every shortcoming that the show had, IMO.  I enjoyed the show as a whole but it did have its faults.  Still, that one scene made it all worth it.  One thing to note is that it absolves Obi Wan of his guilt and grants him peace.  Obi Wan really did try his best for Anakin and it wasn't his fault that Anakin went down the path that he did.  It is only after Obi Wan finds peace within himself and lets go of his negative feelings that he is able to talk to Qui-Gon because he is now a true Jedi again.   

It adds a lot of context to some lines from the original trilogy.

"He's more machine now than man: twisted and evil." Obi Wan to Luke.

"Obi Wan once thought as you did." Darth Vader to Luke.

Obi Wan calls Vader "Darth" in A New Hope because he's accepted that Anakin is dead.

Obi Wan as he lifts a whole bunch of rocks into the air: I still have the high ground and now I'm gonna feed it to you!

It is indeed.  The scenery is based on Iceland.

Gamers Zone / Spirit of the North
« on: June 21, 2022, 05:58:06 AM »
Anyone played Spirit of the North?  It's an indie game that was released back in 2019.  There's no dialogue in the game and only a very simple story, but the graphics, game world, and background music are all stunningly beautiful.  The game is about a fox exploring the ruins of an ancient Nordic civilization based on Iceland.  There's a lot of magic and puzzle solving and the game is similar to Okami, Fallen Ember, and Journey.  Here's the gameplay trailer.

Vader was a BEAST in that latest episode!  Between him pulling the ship out of the air and ripping it apart with The Force, and him basically toying with Reva, that was awesome.  Also, I like how he broke the lightsaber in half and tossed it to her just to toy with her some more.

Been playing Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.  Been pretty fun.  Free play mode is awesome, especially some of the noncanon character interactions.

Everything after "Terminator 2" and everything after "Aliens" is noncanon to me.

At least the Star Wars sequels were bad in a "so bad they're good" kind of way.  As sloppy as the writing was, at least the acting was (for the most part) decent and I actually got invested in the characters. The prequels were just straight up bad, with their horrible dialogue, wooden acting, racist stereotypes, and underdeveloped characters.

Red Dead Redemption 2's "wanted" system.  Commit some ridiculous offense that no lawman in the old west would have cared about?  Get ten lawmen on your tail who mobilize and coordinate  faster than modern-day cops do.  Rob some idiot way out in the middle of the wilderness?  A witness will always "conveniently" show up right afterward.  It's like the Old West was just full of tattletales.

I got knocked down by a random goat out by Emerald Ranch and I kicked the goat in retaliation.  Some busybody tattletale ran ALL THE WAY TO VALENTINE to report me to the law for "animal cruelty".

I'm trying to imagine how that conversation with the sheriff went.

Tattletale: Sheriff!  Sheriff!

Sheriff Malloy: What is it, son?

Tattletale: I just some some good-for-nothing outlaw kick a goat out by Emerald Ranch!

Sheriff Malloy: Kicking goats?  We'll have none of that in the state of New Hanover!  Mount up, boys!  Let's run this goat-kicking SOB down!

Player gets slapped with a $10 bounty.

I ditched Netflix a long time ago.  Wait, they want to shove ads down our throats even if we pay for the service?  Yeah, they can all go step on some LEGOs.

2. When a story's summary revolves around "A young girl named _____."  (Seen that a loooot, and the premise is almost invariably generic).


I can think of one example where it was done well, and all the rest are just blatant ripoffs of that premise.

I'd love to see Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming someday.  It's stunningly beautiful and it served as the inspiration for the setting of a story I wrote.

I didn't do them.  I just paid for them and thought I'd share them.  4th (and at the moment final) page.  Sweet, sweet karma for the evil leopard boi.

In case you're wondering why these wild cats are wearing collars, they're radio tracking collars.  As for how an African leopard ended up in North America, that's up to the reader to decide.  XD

So here's part 1 of a comic I commissioned from Arven92 a while back featuring Chui, the villainous leopard from Argen92's "Africa" comic squaring off with an OC of mine.

This theme which plays during one of Red Dead Redemption 2's epilogue missions.  I was bummed out from Arthur's fate and then I was treated to this.  Hell yeah!  John Marston's back!
