  1. So, there has been some Disney news lately, so I thought it would be time to start a general Disney discussion thread. The biggest news for me is that there is a new DuckTales series coming in 2017! Official announcement: http://blogs.disney.com/oh-my-disney/2015/02/25/this-is-not-a-drill-were-getting-new-ducktales-in-2017/ DuckTales was my favorite show as a kid, so this is great news for me! I'm glad that a whole new generation of kids will be able to enjoy this awesome show. But at the same time, I'm worried how they will update it. Disney hardly produces any traditional animation for their TV shows anymore, so there is a good chance that it will be CGI like Mickey's Clubhouse and some of their other shows, or even worse, Flash animation like 7D *shudder*. If they put enough effort into it, I think it could actually work in CG. For example, I quite liked Scrooge's rendition in Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, but of course traditional animation is always preferred. Also, I really hope they don't change the theme song. It's one of the best and catchiest theme songs ever and I feel that any deviation would ruin it. With this and the live action Chip'n'Dale: Rescue Rangers movie next year, it seems that the Disney Afternoon is making a comeback. What other shows would you like to see return? I'm hoping for Darkwing Duck next (which I'm surprised they haven't brought back yet considering the superhero craze right now). Oh, and we got a trailer for Frozen Fever yesterday. I'm not interested in Cinderella (I don't see the point in making live action versions of Disney cartoons), but I wouldn't mind seeing this short film.
  2. Which streaming platform are you using and will you recommend it or not? I am currently using Netflix, but there are lots of movies that are not on there so I am looking for another one. Any suggestions?
  3. Hello! In this topic I want share with you my experience on creating LEGO animation in Blender. Here is a LEGO movie I've created: Blender is a professional, free and open-source 3D computer graphics software toolset used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games. Software that I used to make this animation: LEGO Digital Designer Blender Sony Vegas STEP 1 First of all, I built all needed models in LEGO Digital Designer. STEP 2 I opened all models in Blender and created an animation. Then I rendered all scenes. STEP 3 All video files were ready, and the only thing I needed to do was to edit them in Sony Vegas. That was my first LEGO movie made in Blender. It took near 2 months to create it. Do you like it?

    Recommend a Movie

    Alright, I know we have a "What's the Last Movie You Watched?" topic, but I feel it's a little narrowing in terms of recommending good movies. So basically this forum's for recommending movies to the members of the forum you think deserve their time. Let's leave it at movies just for now, just so we don't get overwhelmed with long running television shows. Also, I think it would be nice to include a brief description to why you recommend the movie. It can be a sentence long, to a multi paragraph piece. As well, no arguments as to whether a films good or not, if you disagree with someone else's suggestion, it generally comes down to personally preference. Feel free to follow up on what movies people recommended if you watched one! My hope this thread will expose members to new films they may not have seen before, and in general help generate awareness for movies that should get more attention than they might not have. Have fun!

    [moc] They Live

    Hi all, Here is a scene I made after getting the wrestler minifig hair piece. I immediately thought of Roddy Piper who sported one of the greatest mullets of the 80's and starred in the excellently silly John Carpenter movie "They Live".
  11. So now that the year has ended, it is time to look back and think of all the good things that happened. And, boy, was it a good year for movies! There were several blockbusters that shattered box office records in 2015 and were praised by movie goers and critics alike! But there were also plenty of people that were unimpressed by these movies, especially after the hype for them had died down. Not only that, but the most successful movies were all sequels/remakes of older movies. So do these films deserve all the praise and money they received or are they just overhyped, unoriginal trash? Well, let me share my thoughts on some of the movies I've seen this year in the order in which they were released. Don't worry, I'll keep it spoiler-free. Kingsman: The Secret Service - The year started with a bang with this spy action comedy based on a comic! As the movie likes to point out itself, this is not a traditional spy movie. There are lots of ultra-violent, super-fun, stylish action scenes and lots of great humor which make for a unique, enjoyable flick. Chappie - Did you like that part in Short Circuit 2 where Johnny 5 joins a gang? Well, then you will probably like this movie, too, because that's the entire movie. I was honestly expecting a bit more from this one, but the lovable protagonist made it enjoyable enough. Cinderella - This is the second film in the long line of live-action remakes of Disney classics which seem to exist only to make money. Admittedly, it was a fairly close adaption of the animated version and expanded on the story a little bit, but it was not much more than that and actually managed to make the titular character even less interesting somehow. While Maleficent was worse, at least it tried to tell the story from a different perspective. This was basically the same movie, just in live-action. Furious 7 - This is the seventh entry in a franchise about heists in souped-up cars with lots of over-the-top action. It was pretty good, but it probably would have only been just another decent entry in the series if it wasn't for that heartbreaking tribute to Paul Walker at the end. Avengers: Age of Ultron - The highly anticipated sequel to Marvel's Avengers gave us exactly what we wanted: More of the Avengers fighting bad guys, working off of each other, and just hanging out together, plus a cool new villain and more heroes to join their team. Unfortunately, there wasn't much more to it than that. Much like in the first one, the story was very basic and didn't make a lot of sense sometimes, and there wasn't much new in this film. It was just kind of more of the same, which is fine since that's what we expected, but it could have been better. Mad Max: Fury Road - I saw the fourth installment in the Mad Max series a few weeks after everyone had been touting it as the "greatest action film in years" and while I did enjoy it, I felt that it was a bit overhyped. It was basically just one big car chase with very little story. Which is fine for an action movie of course, I was just expecting a little more based on the rave reviews. The action and visuals were fantastic, though, so I can't complain. Tomorrowland - Being a fan of Brad Bird's previous works, I was very excited for this one. It had a lot of promise, but it ended up being disappointing. While it does have some nice moments, it was just too corny and too all over the place. Terminator Genisys - I didn't hate this one as much as many other people did. I thought it was at least better than Salvation, although that's not saying much. It definitely has its flaws. Aside from Arnold who was a delight to see again, every character seemed miscast, the story was a mess, and some of the effects were pretty bad, but it had some decent humor and action. I think they just need to put this franchise to rest. Minions - It's usually never a good idea to make a film centered around the comic relief of a movie, and this is no exception. While the minions are still adorable and hilarious, they're not really interesting enough to carry a movie, so while this film was amusing, it wasn't nearly as good as the Despicable Me films. Jurassic World - Being the highest grossing movie of the year and the third highest of all time, you'd think this movie was one of the best produced, best written, and best acted films ever, right? Well, it's not. It's just Jurassic Park again, but with fake CG dinosaurs, less interesting characters, and a stupid plot. Sure, it was better than Jurassic Park 3, and if you just want to see Chris Pratt and some dinosaurs, you'll probably like it fine, but it is not so good that it deserves being this successful. The only thing that makes it worth watching is the climax which is admittedly pretty awesome. Inside Out - This was easily my favorite movie of the year and one of (if not the) best Pixar films! It's one of the most original and most brilliant films I've ever seen. People often like to compare it to other things like Osmosis Jones or Herman's Head, but this is the first film that does the concept of showing the inside of the mind right and really shows the importance of certain emotions and of growing up. It has lots of funny moments as well as sad moments and the usual excellent Pixar animation. Just a wonderful film. Ant-Man - Much like Guardians of the Galaxy, this could have easily been a flop, but the talented people at Marvel turned one of the most laughable superheroes into a fun, fresh mix of a superhero and a heist movie. It doesn't take itself too seriously and does some fun new things with the shrinking concept. The story is basically the same as Iron Man and the villain is fairly forgettable, but that's the case with most Marvel villains. Is it the best Marvel movie? No, but it's a lot more entertaining than you'd expect. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation - I loved Ghost Protocol which was directed by Brad Bird, and this one was just as good! Simon Pegg is hilarious as always, Tom Cruise continues impress us with his insane stunts, and Rebecca Ferguson makes for a great female lead. There are lots of great, heart-pounding action scenes and interesting plot twists as you would expect from a good M:I film. It's probably my second favorite of the year. The Marian - One of the most entertaining and most realistic space movies I've seen in a long time. I didn't really like Nolan's Interstellar since it was more fiction than science, and while Gravity was suspenseful, it didn't have much of a plot. Based on a book, this one was a lot more of an old-fashioned, realistic story about a man trying to survive on Mars while NASA tries to "bring him home". It has a lot of good humor as well as suspense. Spectre - Wow, there sure were a lot of spy movies this year! This is the fourth Bond film starring Daniel Craig and while it may not be as good as Skyfall or Casino Royale, it was still a fun 007 flick that was a lot more reminiscent of the classic Bond films in its tone. Christoph Waltz was great as always and considering that this was the first Bond film not based on one of Ian Fleming's stories, the plot was pretty good. The Peanuts Movie - I was never a huge fan of the Peanuts. I never read the comics and the old animated specials were all kind of boring to me. But this movie was very enjoyable. It had a bit more energy and a very interesting CG animated style that mimicked the old animation style. The story is nothing special as it's just about Charlie Brown having a crush on the new girl and trying to muster up the courage to talk to her while Snoopy is being Snoopy. It's very quaint and charming in its simplicity and has a lot of humorous moments. If I had to describe the movie in one word, it would be cute. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 - The final installment in the series of movies based on one of the most successful young adult novels is a bit slow, especially in the beginning, but ultimately serves as a satisfying conclusion to the series. I really wish they wouldn't have split this book into two parts, but oh well. The Good Dinosaur - It's no secret that I'm a huge Pixar fan, so I was very excited that this was the first year that we got two Pixar films in one year! But not even I can deny that The Good Dinosaur was disappointing, especially coming out so shortly after Inside Out. It's every "dinosaur gets lost" and "a boy and his dog" story you've ever seen and they hardly do anything with the premise of the meteor missing the Earth. Plus the stylized dinos don't seem to fit into the photo-realistic environments (which were gorgeous!). It's not a bad movie, it's just nothing special. Star Wars: The Force Awakens - The most anticipated movie since Phantom Menace has finally been released, and I am happy to say that it is much better than Episode I! However, it is not without its flaws. Many complain that it's too similar to A New Hope, but it's still a fun movie and makes the next two films promising. The Hateful Eight - The year ends with Quentin Tarantino's second Western and it's as great as I had hoped it would be! Of course it has his signature amount of gore, but it's very intense with lots of great lines from Samuel L. Jackson. I think I still like Django Unchained better, but this was just as good. There were plenty other movies that had very good reviews, but these are just some that I have seen. So was it a great year for movies? Yes, there were definitely a lot of entertaining films to watch. However, it is also true that many of them were not very original. A lot of them are the 4th, 5th, or even 7th installment in their respective franchises and more or less just repeat the plot from the original in order to capitalize on nostalgia. This is a clear sign that Hollywood is trying more and more to play it safe, and seeing how successful these sequels/remakes have been this year, I don't see this trend dying anytime soon. However, just because something doesn't have an original plot doesn't mean it's bad. As movies like Fury Road, The Force Awakens, and Ant-Man have shown, you can still make a very entertaining movie even with an old formula if you put some effort into it. And entertainment is what movies are all about. So what do you think? What were your favorite movies of 2015 and what do you think about all these sequels/remakes?
  12. So for the past few months I've been working to get my own webseries up and running. It's something I've thought about doing for a while and I'm glad to say things have started to fall into place! The Adaptation Nation is a weekly series that looks at bad, strange, and goofy Hollywood adaptations of otherwise good properties. The first video I did was a review of Get Smart, which you can see below. You can watch the rest of my videos on the Youtube channel here, or leave a comment on the Facebook page here. Either way, have a look and see what you guys think!

    Top Films of 2013

    Hi, I didn't see a topic like this anywhere and thought it would be interesting to get everyone's opinions. I'm a huge film buff and 2013, in my opinion, was a pretty great year for the industry. My top favorites are: 1. Inside Llewyn Davis 2. Frances Ha 3. Nebraska 4. Persistence of Vision (Ok, technically this started touring in 2012 film festivals, but it came to Houston in 2013; I'm going to count it) 5. Her l also really enjoyed (in no particular order): Much Ado About Nothing, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Enough Said, Fruitvale Station, and Pacific Rim. So what are your favorite films of 2013? (Also, sorry if this topic already existed)

    Cool mashup

    Right now (1-23-14), over at TeeFury there is a cool mashup of Lego minifigs and Shaun of the Dead! I picked up one of the Lego themed shirts, but some of you may also like the more Cornetto Trilogy related shirt.
  17. After seeing getting the exclusive Jor El figure and seeing Man of Steel, I thought I'd add my own decal for Jor El's Robe that he wears most in the movie, for better realism. I won't spoil the movie with where you will find this in the movie, just thought I'd share this version of him with you, see what you all think. This will not be one of the prints coming up for my Phoenix Custom Bricks figs, so no issue here, feel free to use but not for your own profit without permission. Update: there's an issue with my usual picture sharing site, so for now, I'll just provide links to my Flickr pics of the torso designs: http://www.flickr.com/photos/79156616@N03/9484653588/ - Torso Clear Decal version http://www.flickr.com/photos/79156616@N03/9484653570/ - Torso Flesh Face version Legs for these will be added soon, hopefully, to complement it, for anyone looking to use these.

    Despicable Me 2

    Has anyone seen Despicable Me 2? If so, what did you think of it? I loved the first film so I'm seeing it tomorrow. (Also, does anyone here play Minion Rush?)
