Re: Questions about the store

Hey there, RF. I am sure TT (Time Traveler) will be along shortly to better answer your questions, but here is a brief overview. 1. It is not a traditional brick and mortar storefront, but if you hang out here long enough you will probably garner an invitation to at least have lunch with the crew if...

Nightmare Alley (2021)- Maggy's movive reviews

So, are you aware that a "geek" is a carnival sideshow freak that will bite the heads off of chickens? Well, if you were not aware of that fact, the first 10 minutes of this movie will show you that in gruesome detail. How can I sum up this latest mindfuck by del Toro? Intense. Set in the ...

The King's Man (2021)- Maggy's Movie Reviews

So, the Kingsman series kind of hit a wall with them blowing everything up and going way over the top in the last film. Where to now? A prequel, naturally! Instead of present day, we are transported back to the events leading up to and during the first World War. A father and son that have devoted t...

Spider-Man Far From Home (2021) Maggy's Movie Reviews

Spoiler free section: Have you ever seen a Spider-Man film? Did you like it? Go see this one. It is good. Spoiler section: Let me start by saying Andrew Garfield is a liar. Yes, there were old movie villains. But there were also old movie Spider-Mans. they don't show up until the third act, but ther...

Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night (2021)-Maggy's Movie Reviews

So, if you have not ever seen an episode of Sword Art Online, where have you been? But, even if you have never seen an episode, you can still watch this film and have a great time. After all, it really only tells the story of the first two episode from the point of view of another character. The run...

Re: Studio Series Brawn.

Hey, it is nice that they are doing Insecticons, or at least one for sure. I just do not see spending $25 for a Shrapnel that is minus the chrome, but has a bendy elbow when I got the TRU G1 reissue three pack 10 years ago for the same price. I am not a completionist. I do not "gotta catch them...

Re: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2021 Netfix series (no, not Revelations, the other one))

I will probably check this one out.

Also, I really enjoyed Revelations. I know it got a lot of hate, but I did not get it at all.

Studio Series Brawn.

It is official. I give up. "Studio Series Brawn based on his 1980's appearance" is from the Bumblebee movie..... as in "1983" The token Autobot in the '86 film line is a redo of the Titan's Return Perceptor with a permanent head. But, they made a Brawn that looks like am insect i...

Re: Dune (2021) Maggy's movie reviews

I am curious how they will handle the ending. Herbert has a way about him that can make a knife fight, upon which the fate of the galaxy rest,s boring. There were no bewbs to speak of in that scene, thus his enthusiasm was seemingly elsewhere. I wonder what your son will think of the second film, as...

Yup those are definitely words.

I have no clue what they mean, but they are words.

And this is why I figured you would have the answer without the search. :lol:

Re: Please help toy id. [Hard mode, no pics]

I figured it was going to be one of the bajillion Power Ranger knock offs but TT beat me to the punch on looking it up. And by that, I mean he pulled it up from memory whereas I would have had to actually do a few web searches (which I had not motivated myself to do yet). :lol: I am glad you were ab...

Re: The Eternals (2021)- Maggy's Movie Reviews

Okay. With Shang-Chi it is a case of them having to retcon an expectation subversion while relying on a character that was an answer to not getting the proper license (the Kung Fu tv show) and instead having to rely on a character that was the embodiment of the "Yellow Menace" (the evil Fu...

Re: Please help toy id. [Hard mode, no pics]

This era is difficult due to not only the advent of Power Rangers, but about a metric bajillion Power Rangers knock offs. It is clear you do not remember the exact year, which is cool, but any more specifics as to the time (like when the absolute latest it could have been) or on this item would be h...

Ghostbusters Afterlife (2021)- Maggy's Movie Reviews.

Disclosure: I am a Ghostchaser. I have spent well over $3000 on a screen accurate Jumpsuit, Proton pack, and Utility belt (most items on the belt are vintage and operational). Ghostbusters (1984) is probably my favorite film of all time. With good reason. They actually teach college courses on how i...

No. Just no. So much fucking no. A couple of weeks ago I called Thor the Dark World and Shang-Chi low tier Marvel films.

So, the pre-order listings have hit, and we are finally moving on from WFC. The new flavor of CHUG+ is now called Generations legacy. Based on the selection in the first wave, this line looks like it is just going to be a grab bag. We have the leader class Gen2 recolor of Laser Prime with a trailer ...

Dune (2021) Maggy's movie reviews

The 1984 Dune holds a very distinctive place for me. It is the only David Lynch project I absolutely cannot stand. It is very pretty to look at, but it is also a masterpiece of why "Show, don't tell" is pretty much the key to what makes a movie good or bad. In the four hour cut, I would no...

Re: Bad News: Takara Transformers no longer official!

I can see why you posted this in general discussions as opposed to Toy Talk or Non-Transformer Toy Talk.

Until this serious matter is resolved, it would be hard for the moderators to determine if it was on topic for either forum.

I'll allow it.
