    Disney+ Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

    I started watching the MULAN remake on D+. I just couldn't get into it and never finished watching. Might have to try again sometime but the film lacked appeal to me. I thought U would like it better based on the trailers but it felt clichéd to me.

    Ghost of Tsushima

    Well,.I've played some of it and so far so good. Not a dud like COD; Modern Warfare. At least this one I can actually ay the game. COD:MW won't even allow a person to play the single person campaign game without creating an Activision account and I'm having trouble getting the account to...

    NFTs. Art plus blockchain. Crazy pills or the future?

    I think there are a lot of people.with too much money suffering from cabin fever. I'm probably feeling it myself, because I keep thinking of buying stuff that I most likely don't really need. The only difference is the stuff I want to buy are things I can actually use, rather than a stupid GIF...

    The autonomous (self driving) car buyers and owners thread

    Tesla calling a semi-autonomous driving software "full self driving" is not only misleading; it is bordering on fraudulent and is deadly, because the word full suggests to people that the car is fully capable of driving itself without human attention or intervention.

    The autonomous (self driving) car buyers and owners thread

    I think a technology that drives you into a highway barrier or into the side of a truck is more than just flawed.

    Mario Kart Home Circuit on switch

    Seems pointless to have a toy that runs around your living room when your face is going to be glued to the Switch screen for the entire time while playing the game that comes with the kart.

    Home Printers all suck

    I don't print pictures, so no need for a colour printer. I have found that the monochrome Brother MFC-7840W laser jet printer I purchased has worked well for me. The only thing I don't like is that it keeps disconnecting from my home network, requiring me to turn it off and on for my work laptop...

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    Nine episodes really wasn't enough to finish telling the story. The ending felt rushed. The show built up that there were some real psychological issues going on and then fell back on a typical Marvel fight scene to end it. The Agnes character just fizzled out like a wet firecracker after all...

    Announcing! The Puppetoon Movie Volume 3 Crowdfunder

    Do you sell them as signed copies or do generally use them as gifts? How much for a signed copy if you sell them? I would just like to get a complete set if I order vol 2.

    Is the first volume still available or is it OOP?

    Disney+ Monsters at Work

    Check out "City of Ghosts" on Netflix if you get a chance. I know you are a big fan of animation and I'd like to hear your thoughts on it. I was fairly impressed with it, considering it is rated Y7. I'd like it to get more episodes, but Netflix is notorious for killing shows after one season...

    Disney+ Monsters at Work

    You have a point there. I won't totally write them off until we see them moving. I just found the designs off-putting because of my familiarity with what the characters looked like from their classic period. They were redesigned for the Rescue Rangers TV series, but still looked closely to the...

    City of Ghosts

    I know tnis animated series most.likely will not appeal to many adults here as it is a Y7 series running.on Netflix, but I thought it was quite well done. The series revolves around a group of kids that have formed a club with the purpose of finding and interviewing ghosts in the Los Angeles...

    Disney+ Monsters at Work

    I know this is a thread for the D+.Monsters spin off, but they coupled this with news of a Chip and Dale reboot. The C&D character redesigns look terrible.

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    The opening.episode of TNG stunk so bad that it almost turned me off of watching any more.of.the first season. I tried a few more episodes of.S1 and they pretty well stunk too. I've watched episodes here and there but, unlike TOS, I've never watched the entire series. Even when some interesting...

    Nintendo NX is now Switch (Official thread)

    No. I tried them in both configurations. It was the.positioning of the joysticks that I disliked. The positioning resulted in my thumb feeling that it was in an awkward position. Also they felt too small in my hands, even with the controller dock.

    Nintendo NX is now Switch (Official thread)

    I'm in the pro-controller camp. I found the joy cons awkward and virtually unusable. Having to spend 90 bucks on another controller to make the system usable was annoying, but my fingers and thumbs thanked me.

    Disney+ Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

    I really don't consider "Moana" to be a "Princess" film in the traditional Disney sense. Her growth through the film prepares her to eventually take over as the "Chieftain". Nobody ever refers to her as a "Princess" in the film, and her family, although being the titular rulers are not royalty...

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    Yeah. It just felt that way because I haven't be falling down in praise of this series like a lot of others have. Just being oversensiitive. Disregard.

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    Was that intended to be aimed at me? If it was, I haven't "schooled" anyone on how these characters should be or are. I've just mentioned what I personally didn't like about the direction the series took. I've read plenty of comics in my life. I just never read any from the "Spandex Superhero"...

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    The main story ended ok. I didn't care for the credit end sequences. Mostly because I don't like having to read other sources to get interpretations of what they supposedly mean. The sequence itself should be able to do that.

    Disney+ Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

    My bad. I forgot that.it was a Disney Animation production and said Pixar without checking if I was guessing right. Either way, "Moana" was still a better film than "Raya and The Last Dragon".

    Disney+ Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

    Well, I decided to spend the 30+ dollars to see the film early. I have mixed feelings about the film. The animation is well done and the visually the film looks great. The story, however, is somewhat of a let down. It's not bad but it was second tier to Pixar's "Moana" which also used a...

    Hardware Review Secretlab Omega 2020 Gaming Chair: Dark Knight Edition

    So after having this chair for awhile, how has it been holding up for you? How do you find it for back support? How is th PU leather holding up for durability and comfort, especially as far as sweating goes?

    Webcams all suck

    I don't use the camera, even during virtual meetings. They could eliminate the Webcam off of laptops altogether and I wouldn't miss it. In fact, I wish PCs and phones had a physical switch to allow disabling of cameras and microphones.

    VR discussion: Oculus Rift, Vive, Morpheus and more!

    I'll only look at a purchaseof VR2 if the use of a camera for tracking is eliminated. The camera tracking on the PS VR1 was worthless and cumbersome. The display resolution will also have to be vastly improved.

    The Croods: A New Age (2020)

    You are well known for your critical comments on most of the films you watch, so it just seems unusual for you to display such a positive opinion on this franchise. Not that there is any problem with that. It is just that, normally, you are pretty hard on films.

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    The films were self contained. You didn't need to have knowledge from the comic book or an online discussion to learn about the character, plus characters like Spiderman, Thor and The Hulk are widely known outside of the comic press and culture. There have been plenty of mainstream news items...

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    It's great that you got emotional satisfaction out of the episode. I didn't. It is as simple as that. The story is taking a path that I don't.find as interesting as the earlier episodes. It wasn't terrible and I might as well finish the arc since it is close to the end anyway.
