Batman The Animated Series: Deluxe Limited Edition – My initial opinions

Batman Mystery of the Batwoman
Remember me? WB didn’t!

I’m a bit upset with my Deluxe Limited Edition Batman The Animated Series collection. I bought it partially for digital copy, but that is only in SD! No digital copy for the movies, which of course is missing the third animated series movie Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, 3 shitty funko’s, two of which are off model, and a case for the discs that looks cool but on further inspection makes for a shitty way to hold the discs without fear of scratching them or immediately causing finger prints. Oh, and the lenticulars are… lenticulars.

I just feel kind of childish with these… the art is good… but eh… it moves with you, and reminds me of like… trading cards that would do that. I’m 33. This collection is for adults… right? Just some nice art to display is enough.

I know, I know, I haven’t even talked about the quality of the discs… but that’s because they are… you know… Blu Rays. I’m sure they are great? I watch my shows mostly digitally on Vudu, so the lack of HD videos is just… unforgivable to me.

Stay tuned for more on this toon after I get the opportunity to… you know… watch it some.

Jeff Bridges begged to be in The Last Unicorn for free

GQ recently did a video with Jeff Bridges over his most famous role, but SOMEHOW there was no mention of him being Prince Lir in The Last Unicorn?! WTF GQ! This may have not have been a huge role, but come on! The man loved the book enough that he offered to do it for free!

The Little Mermaid 2 turns 18 today!

 

kOh my Disney! Let’s celebrate this by playing a pinball game on our Gameboy Color!

Seriously… GBC pinball was the best they could do back in the day?

When The Little Mermaid was an AMAZING game the made Disney bounce back to glory in what was known as the Disney Renaissance, just being good was not good enough for it’s Y2K sequel… but… eh… it’s fine. Not great though. Oh, and Tara Strong, Twilight Sparkle, plays her daughter Melody? That’s something?

Like I said, not terrible… but this movie is not even close to being as good as the first one… still though… Ariel’s kids movie is legal now… that’s something.

I don’t care about She-Ra enough.

she-ra-reboot750x422I missed most of the twitter storm about She-Ra… and… eh? My feelings are luke warm to it all? Like… visually I went ‘Oh. She looks like a white Korra from The Legend of Korra. K…’

I didn’t watch She-Ra… I watched  a little bit of He-Man… but honestly? I was more of a ThunderCats fan.

she-ra-netflix-catra-adoraI just… There’s so much going on in the world right now… I just can’t with all of this.

Below, I’ve included a rant against and for it all… but… yeah. Ultimately, I’m cautiously optimistic for this, but I dunno… I’m not paying to watch this show, I don’t have kids who are watching this, But honestly… as someone who is not a fan of She-Ra? I’m more likely to watch this She-Ra than the classic one… but honestly… I do not have a horse in this race.

 

I’m going to Japan

Sunday was so worthless, I stayed inside most of it and worked on this video blog about how I’m going to Japan in August, and all about my trip in 2010.

Please note that this was done under my new YouTube channel: Kerfuffle 226 which has a twitter handle: https://twitter.com/226Kerfuffle although you can still use my NetSenshi one here: https://twitter.com/netsenshi

Special thanks to Frog 50 for doing such an awesome job helping me make some avatar stuff for my videos. I won his Patreon raffle, and he agreed to do that instead of the 1 second of animation, which was great! Here’s his latest animation!

 

Do we want some more?

mlp g1 lickity-split animated ponyI’m weird, I like cartoons that are drawn well. Now, Adventure time, for example, pretty good show but it isn’t visually impressive, but it has it’s own style. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic uses Flash and while it does the job well enough, it isn’t as well drawn as the first incarnation of My Little Pony, so it was a challenge to get into it at first. I feel like this is important to mention, before I talk about the internet’s latest outrage: ThunderCats Roar.

*sigh* This might be fun? I spent most of my day thinking that it was going to look like Teen Titans Go!

TCATS_GroupShot_01.05.11_v3 whip patch_Pencil_line_CLEANAs fun as it could be though… why ThunderCats? Why now? Why Television? Why again?  People were either wanting the 2011 re-boot to be revived like DC comic’s Young Justice is about to be, or they wanted a movie perhaps, but this?

Reboot’s can be great! Alvin & The Chipmunk’s of my youth was a reboot, Sailor Moon Crystal is a great reboot, The Real Adventure’s of Johnny Quest? Reboots can be better than the original show!

Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, and ironically ReBoot. Shows have been rebooted and re-imagined a lot lately. I’m growing tired of it, and you know what? I’m just not feeling it right now? Not with that art style that is just inferior to the original intent of an action show.

Surprisingly though? I am sort of feeling a She-Ra: Princess of Power reboot. I’m not trying to channel today’s liberalism, #metoo movement, feminism, throwback to how awesome Buffy The Vampire Slayer is, or anything like that. Legitimately, She-Ra has never been rebooted, and just from this promotional image, it looks like a cool cartoon.

That’s seriously the most important part of a cartoon is look like something I want to watch. It is… after all… a visual medium, ya know? And here’s the amazing thing! She-Ra, is being done on NETFLIX, and is being made by DreamWorks who was behind The Voltron reboot that is surprisingly really great!

she-ra pencil earlyThis image was leaked a while back, supposedly from this show, and it looks kind of awesome? I’m imagining something that looks like The Legend of Korra mixed with Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki… which is a web comic that you probably aren’t aware of?

What’s crazy is that… okay… so She-Ra was a spin-off of He-Man, in order to sell dolls to girls, right? I think she was on a different planet than him, but she was his twin sister. He-Man?

Failed reboot due to bad toy sales from bad toys. Same thing for ThunderCats 2011, and even Young Justice originally. Dreamwork’s Netflix’s Voltron? Successful show and toy sales. If they do the same for She-Ra? Awesome. I feel like animated shows can really thrive on Netflix but maybe not anymore on Cartoon Network… which is weird and sad at the same time.

With Adventure Time being over and Steven Universe maybe coming to an end, I feel like ThunderCats Roar will fill into those spots? It might work, but I honestly feel like She-Ra’s going to do better.

Meanwhile… SCREW ReBOOT’s reboot!  and those are my three cents on this whole matter. Sorry if I’m a little extra on this subject. Inflation.
