I miss the non-big-budget films like Tremors, Deep Rising, Lake Placid, Anaconda, The Blob, Troll Hunter, Monsters, Piranha (1978), The Beast (1996), and the last one I really enjoyed was Grabbers - UK film.
Or suggest a monster film, I may not have seen that is not that bad?
Do you happen to know any interesting big budget monster/horror movies? I am the very opposite. I like monster movies and horror but everything i pick up turns out to be low budget. The weird effects and low production values just take me out of the movie.
I am definitely looking forward to Avengers2 so much more than Star Wars. I have never been a star wars fan, which is probably the reason why i enjoyed the prequels (or at least the first and second one. The 3rd one sucked). I didn't have that attachment to the first 3 movies.
Taka You could likely just cut out the text and image and throw them into a new image for a few seconds as new layers, extend the background of the banner (Black and white area), then just drop the text and image back in and resize them until it fits if you wanted.
That ones small enough now but its length has been reduced, so it's up to yourself if you want to run it through the mill again.
Taka shouldn’t be too hard to extend that as far as you need with a bit of knowledge and an eye for accuracy. I will have a look at it in the morning and see if I can extend it out to something more fitting, too tired now to bother with anything other than sleep.
Saw the Lego Movie a few minutes ago. It was pretty awesome. That song is addicting and stays in your head. The movie had a crazy concept (which I won't spoil for new folks who haven't seen it) The wonders what crazy glue can do.
Still on my free month trial for Netflix. After watching Expelled from Paradise, I have no idea what to watch since their anime library is so small. I had watched most of these shows on HULU and Crunchyroll which I'm paying right now.
I look at what films they have in their digital library. Saw Transformers Age of Extinction. I know the movie had a lot of negative reviews. I find the movie decent but not too horrible. One of the major things I don't like was the change in Optimus Prime's character. As a kid, I revered him as a hero along with Batman and Spider-man. Heroes don't kill. Though this movie's incarnation, he does kill his robots. For him to kill a human being in this film wasn't perceived as good personally.
The jarring yet probably good part of the movie was the bioethical experimentation of Transformers. I never seen that in the Transformers franchise ever. We had a Gundam vs Transformers discussion on which franchises do well in different categories. Gundam series are usually darker than Transformers. This is the first time I seen Transformers getting this dark. I only seen Beast Wars, Armada, and Energon wars. I have never read the comics or seen anything else.
Well, I better find some movies outside of my usual preferences to watch each night. Otherwise, I just cancel my Netflix account.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.
Jan 11, 2020 5:39:30 GMT
Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.
Jan 11, 2020 15:13:09 GMT
Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.
Jan 11, 2020 17:52:00 GMT
Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.
Jan 18, 2020 21:32:36 GMT
Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.
Jan 19, 2020 3:00:33 GMT
Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.
Jan 19, 2020 15:57:41 GMT
Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.
Jan 19, 2020 22:50:13 GMT
Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.
Jan 21, 2020 3:21:13 GMT
Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
