I'm not sure if I've seen more self-serving writing, it's hard to believe they were apparently a fan of the original when they've changed so much in this reboot.

I'm a fan of the new Jem comics if I'm honest. The buildup to Stormer/Kimber had no gravity to it and they had a duo in the show, so guess that was for long time fans. I like that they are giving the Misfits some love, especially Pizazz. It feels rushed and the trans girl suddenly becoming the new lead. I don't know comic formats though.
I've seen people bash on Jerrica not being the no nonsense girl and people be like WHY SHE NO SLAY LIKE A QUEEN!!!! (cringe cringe criiiinge) but I can see where their coming from. The comic has faults.

but.

it ain't nearly as bad as that movie.

The things I hate the most from the new PPG is the voice actresses. Bubbles sounds so old, Buttercup sounds whiny. Blossom is kinda okay, but I like the previous one better. And it seems that the original voices weren't even invited to voice the new PPG? I find it a bit disrespectful tbh, they basically gave 'life' to the show.

I actually hate body diversity shoehorned in so fatties can feel better about their terrible life choices. I'd rather have characters be fit or at least reasonably average. Fat characters are better suited to the peripheral. It's not cool to be fat or to encourage youth to be ok with being obese. Making a character suddenly fat because diversity pisses me off. If Stormer was always fat I wouldn't care. But she looks like she's never met a buffet table that she didn't like.

In the cartoon the Misfits exercised a lot. There were plenty of scenes where they were working out.

I've seen pages of this comic. It looks so tumblr and "mah diversity" that I wanted to puke. I really hate it.

Some fans shipped Kimber and Stormer because of that one episode where they quit their bands for being under-appreciated and form a duo. But if you are gonna make it canon at least make it look like something that happens naturally. It was really fanfictiony. Which is how I regard this comic. Bad fanfiction that got published somehow.

>Cartoon Network announced on June 16, 2014, that they had revived The Powerpuff Girls in a new series, which was to be produced by Cartoon Network Studios. In their 2015 upfront on February 19, the network announced that Nick Jennings would be its executive producer.[1] Bob Boyle, who previously has produced Clarence, has created Disney XD's Yin Yang Yo! and Nickelodeon's Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! and also former producer and art director of the Butch Hartman's animated series The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom would also produce. Meanwhile, Craig McCracken, original creator of The Powerpuff Girls, would not work on the series, even though he gave the show his approval
This is why it's shit. The original creator literally wanted nothing to do with it, Cartoon Network just wanted some more cashmoney dollars.

Yeah, and apparently it's all of a part of big marketing scheme. Rumors said they cast the younger actresses so they can 'show them off' on social media. Come to think of it, it might be true. We don't see the original voices being showed off often in the media like this when the original came out, but since social media is rampant now, they feel the need to cast the younger albeit unknown actresses to the tweens demographic, so they can be more 'relatable'. But eh, the last bit might be just me, looking too much into it.

Yeah, bad move on Cartoon Network indeed.

It's possible, but in my opinion, money should be the least of their problem if they invited the original voices back. PPG is a popular show, the fandom is loyal and some fans and former children were quite attached to the voices, it just doesn't make sense that Cartoon Network want to sacrifice that for cheaper voice actresses. Not to mention as >>89104 said, they invited several side characters' original voices back. It really doesn't make sense to me. If they use the original voices in the reboot, I'm sure they will make big money too, maybe more than they make now.

This. So many times this. Let me tell you anon - I feel seething rage towards this fucking reboot. I love the original movie to bits and the moment I heard they're making a "reboot" instead of a passing-of-a-torch sequel and the "reboot" is going to have an all-female cast I knew it was going to be awful. I mean I'm female and have no problem with female characters. But when you go all out like that and get the king of cucks (Paul Feig, pic related) to direct you just know it's going to be a patronizing, low-level, tacky flick trying to cash in on feminism because of COURSE women will watch and feel empowered by anything as long as it has women, no matter how shitty the writing is right? Grill power!

I really, really hated watching the movie. I didn't pay for it in the theaters because I didn't want to fund this kind of shit. I'm so glad it flopped because it was an awful piece of unfunny shit and the way their marketing relied ONLY on the "look at your new heroes girls lol misogynists btfo!" thing made it even worse. They had a fucking movie universe planned around this crappy movie and seriously thought it was going to be the bomb just because feminism is the "in" thing right now. They really fucking thought women were that stupid. I have rarely felt as insulted in my entire life. The issues they faced during the development really show on the screen and according to the leaked e-mails they forced Bill Murray to make a cameo by some shady means just to take those desperate measures to appeal to the fans of the original movie. Bill Murray, the man who denied any thought of a new Ghostbusters movie for over 20 years and was basically the reason the 3rd movie never got made despite numerous tries.

Someone once mentioned that if they wanted to make a genderswap to emasculate the original loved flick to the altar of feminism, why did they pick ghostbusters instead of some macho movie that's all about male empowerment? Why did they pick the "everyday American" comedy about a couple of slobbish exterminators trying to keep up a small business? It's so retarded and only because the director (a man) thinks feminism is about shooting male ghosts in the dick and queef jokes.

I think the problem with all those reboots is that before they'd draw everything frame by frame (resulting in something looking very nice or very very choppy). Kinda like those elements in the background you KNEW would move later cause they were standing so much from the handpainted background.

Now, everything is just so bland, so generic, so smooth moving. You can select a whole arm in any basic animating software and giggle it around : bam, you got 5s of animation without having to draw that arm 15 times in 15 positions.

I feel like there's just no personnality left anymore with those types of animation. It can be done well but it irks me when it's for a reboot of a show like the magic school bus.

Thankfully there's still people putting out nice videos, like students at Les Gobelins.

Also, apparently she's got big hips because she's a teenager. I'm still put off by it for some reason.

That's because computer animation always looks more fake than drawn stuff. I know drawn animation is "fake" too but it's organic. CGI movement is controlled by humans but created by machines, so it's "too perfect" and thus too unnatural. And of course the textures always look like plastic, whereas in a more simpler hand-drawn environment your brain fills in whatever blanks it has. CGI doesn't let you do that.

>make her black

if that’s the only reason you don’t like her, people finding it racist is pretty justified. I haven’t watched the show, but assuming she was made in a lab like the others, there’s no real reason why she shouldn’t be black if that we’re the only change.

To be fair, considering she’s probably a lab creation, the changes are all justified but the reason it doesn’t work is because she looks drastically different from the ppgs. Her freakish legs, bright hair, garnet hips and skin color all contribute to her sticking out like a sore thumb.

if her race, despite them being lab created and not actually having one anyway, is your only problem you have with her character design in comparison to the original three, then yeah, people might think you’re being a little racist.

No. 209603

I agree with you, I watched one of the clips posted above of this character and her hair color is explained by her having electric powers. Then I guess she has hips because shes a teenager from growing so fast iirc? The whole point is that the professor used a different chemical to make her and thats why shes different from the main 3 girls. There's nothing "sjw" about that imo, it's just a black cartoon character, people need to get over it.

Honestly when I first saw her I thought it was a poorly made OC or self insert. The reboot of the PPG was just a hot mess anyway of dumb outdated memes, not really living up to what the show really was in the past.
Back on the 4th PPG. It just seems like a cheap and easy way to appear more PC by adding a random black character. I feel people wouldn't be as bothered as randomly creating another PPG that doesn't fit into the PPG universe at all. Nothing about her story makes sense

The issue is its just blatant tokenism. She's not just a powerpuff girl who happens to be black, everything about her is retarded and screams "look at me!", you're supposed to pretend its something important. At least they didn't kill one off and replace them with her like Marvel keeps trying to do.

No. 209629

>>209620
This. My problem isn't that she's black, it's that she's a token special snowflake.
All the other girls are the same height and size with a color palette that follows some natural aesthetic archetype - blue eyed blonde, green eyes black hair and "brown" eyed ginger (turned pink because it's a cartoon for girls and she's the "main" ppg), and then there's… her.

Speaking only about character design, why is she bigger? Why does she have HIPS? It seems like an extremely racist choice not to make her as young and innocent looking as the others. (This is an actual issue that non-retarded people who fight racism talk about: how black girls are always sexualized and never portrayed in the same innocent, delicate light as white girls are)
Then there's the color palette. I get that it's harder to make a black character visually stimulating and still natural since brown skin, black hair and brown eyed isn't a very good choice for obvious reasons, but it feels like instead of trying to work with it they just said "well, we're doing this to appeal to a tumblrtard audience and they like mermaid and unicorns, right? Yeah, those are gonna be get colors. Lavender and bright blue, like a mermaid unicorn!" and called it a day.
They could have gone for yellow for her eyes and clothes, for example, and left her hair black (with dreads maybe?). As she is now, she just looks like some shitty self-insert and not like an official character.

The real reason the PPG reboot even happened was actually because of toy sales. That's why the show itself is so cheap and stale, complete with new "talent" like nobody voice actors and awful animation. It doesn't need to be good, it just lives off the old shows reputation and they make most the money off merchandise. Teen Titans Go was similar but with even less care for the source material.

Anyone seen the leak for G5 My Little Pony (pic related)? What are your thoughts?

I get the feeling that it's just really nice fanart being passed off as concept art for a new generation, but if this does happen to be real I think it's pretty cute, even piebald Applejack if they tone down her poofy hair.

I kind of hope it's fake and that the real G5 (if there actually will be one) won't focus on the same 6 from FIM and will either use different ponies from past generations (Minty, Fizzy, Wysteria, etc.) or maybe even create brand new main ponies. I'm also hoping the toy line won't be as ugly as G4's itty bitty pieces of plastic. Even the G3.5 toys were cuter imo.

Damn, I didn't think I'd see another fan on here. It seems as if you can't enjoy this anymore because men "claimed" it and now everybody and their mother associates an inherently feminine show with those dudes. It does look as if its just fanart and I wish the hair on AJ was toned down. It just doesn't suit her. Also the reason why older gen characters weren't used in FiM is because Hasbro lost the rights to every character except for AJ. That is why certain ponies take on the name of past ponies (like how Lickity Split is now a boy and brown) yet don't retain the same design as their previous incarnations. This all happened before FiM aired.

As for if bronies would ruin it, some will like it and some won't. That's pretty much what happened when they made Equestria Girls, which I personally enjoy and the normal FiM, but ofc bronies bash EQG because they aren't horses and its "girly shit with love stories".

They're claiming G5 will be a CG alternate universe of G4. I really hope they don't do that because CG ages so poorly and is just a fad in animation right now to CG everything. Part of the success of G4 was it was a well animated 2D series with "lore" it respected and continuity. The leaks claim they're going to cater to an older audience and want to be more "cartoon" to net older girls and women and less "only little girl franchise".

I kind of laughed because bronies are simply never factored in by them, no matter how much they whine. Hasbro was like this too, even at the peak of the brony phenomenon. They are only a very small and vocal part of the market, no matter how they try to spin it. Most bronies actually claimed MLP jumped ship very early on (G4 season 3, especially by the end of it.) and threw a legendary fit on 4chan and their online forums, most quitting the franchise altogether. Yet, they claimed before it should be tailored to them and said they had more money than little girls. It was so stupid, too.

Grew up with G2 with G1 ponies popping every now and then on TV. I collect those two generations amd own some G3 ponies. I REALLY miss the creativity of G1 toys. So many lovely gimmicks and ponies! I hate G4 toys, they are so small and bland. I also hate the idea of Core ponies being rereleased into oblivion while we get barely any other characters.
The G4 cartoon is the best plot and character wise (tho I have soft spot for everything G1…), but the toys are bleh.
>>219833
Same thing happened with WITCH comics. Read all of them online and arcs got progressively worse and more childish. Not to mention trying to compete with WINX with guardians having new transformation etc. The first 5-6 arcs were the best (though nothing beats the original Phobos issues. Nerissa is almost as good, though).

I absolutely adore old Tom and Jerry (besides the racism often featured in old cartoons and media) and the softer animation style, creativity and plotlines and genuine hilarity.

Here's some more G5 MLP concept art. Which styles look best/worst to you?

I pretty much like every row with maybe a couple of changes to row 6 (Flutter's green hooves and horn are strange and Rainbow Dash being so ornate doesn't really suit her, but the rest look great, especially AJ) but I'm not a fan of row 2. Rainbow and Pinkie's designs are overkill, and Twilight and AJ look so dull compared to the others.

For the final design, I want the art style of either row 3 or 5, but with the Applejack design from row 6.

Not quite sure how I feel about the species swap. Being a pegasus suits Pinkie, but unicorn Fluttershy and earth pony Twilight Sparkle?

No. 221876

>>221874
Pegasus does indeed suit Pinkie considering her original counterpart was Surprise, the pegasus pony. White coat, blonde mane. I'm wondering if these are indeed official or fan art, because why would Twilight have no horn when she is a unicorn both in G4 and originally?

Row 2 Twi and Aj are the only ones I like for that section. Rarity looks great on 3, 4, and 5. I don't know, I've always hated Flutter and Pinkie so I couldn't care less what they end up looking like.

No. 221884

>>221874

I love row 4, the designs/art just ooze personality, like they are not just standing and looking forward. Fluttershy is def. the weakest one on the row (quite literally), but still conveys her character well.

Excuse my following 'tism:

Twilight Sparkle:
>Twilight is hopeful yet confident for what is to come
>like a good hardworking student
>great facial expression looking up/horizon
>I like the idea of her being an Earth Pony because than she would've worked even harder to be a Celestia's student, kinda like a muggle or some shit

AppleJack:
>AJ is strong
>(i like how the earth ponies have bigger legs and AJ has even bigger ones than Twi), also confident but in a more "corporal" wa
>The spots on the fur, remind me of freckles that the steryotipical tan country girl would get
>Also twinbraids, kinda dorky but it fits
>One braid is still superior tho

Pinkie Pie:
>Pinkie is playful (only one facing us brom the back, like if playing tag or w/e)
>I love her mane, looks like it's from the 80's, >love how her wings and fur follows the curly motif

Rainbow Dash:
>RD WITH TOMBOY HAIR YES
>Super confident and cocky, even more so than AJ
>They actually look like they are kinda daring eachother
>Bigger wings because she's a racer after all

Rarity:
>Look at that motherfucking tail, it looks like a gown's tail and it's totally fitting
>She's so snotty and full of herself, I love it the "better than you" look in her eyes
>Graceful trotting
>The only one that cares enough to wear an earring/jewel in her mane

First I thought it was pandering to the tumblr crowd but then I realised they've only made the antagonist Heathers diverse and Veronica is still conventional and pretty, which is pretty un-tumblr.

Then I thought maybe they were flipping the personalities to make it more different but Veronica worked so well because she was an even split between the students. Flipping the personalities doesn't work for her because she had a little bit of everyone. She was a little bit JD, a little bit Betty and a little bit Heather. She even says herself that she could have easily been the next Heather and the Heathers themselves show signs of not being what they appear. Treating her and the Heathers like complete opposites doesn't work that well.

Statements from people involved with the show as quoted in
https://themuse.jezebel.com/here-is-the-extremely-confusing-trailer-for-the-new-hea-1822232812

Talking about the series theme, Brendan Scannell who plays Heath Duke, a gay Heather, said “The idea is that power corrupts and that everyone is at their core an asshole and concerned for themselves. In the movie three beautiful women where wrecking havoc on the school; that was new and hadn’t been done before. Our modern retelling centers around marginalized communities—a plus-size, a Black girl and a queer—trashing everyone around them.”

“The main thing to really take away is I don’t view the Heathers as the villains,” showrunner Jason Micallef told EW. “The three Heathers are incredibly powerful and ruling the school; they’re the people you would want to be. In the original film, the Heathers were the ones I always loved, and it’s the same with the series. The Heathers are the aspirational characters. [That the Heathers are the villains is] the underlying thesis of the small segment of people that have an issue with it. The villain is J.D. — and that’s the same in the movie and same in our show.”

Star Wars has more or less been soft rebooted under Disney ownership. Episode 7 (TFA) was overall mediocre but felt somewhat true to the series. I was hopeful that Episode 8 (TLJ) would be an improvement, and give the protagonists some badly-needed development. What we got instead was at least 80% garbage. I don't want to spend ages sperging out about what went wrong, but suffice to say I'm through giving DisneyWars chances.

Can't believe that people are still harping on that movie.

It's not perfect and had some sudden and questionable humor but Star Wars was always kind of cheesy.
The movie made Kylo Ren a very interesting character and enemy and some of the cinematography was great.
The casino part was terrible but other than that, I don't understand where all the controversy comes from.

It's absolutely ridiculous that people involved received death threats over this movie.

No. 232413

>>232409
The death threats are stupid and inexcusable. The movie was still shit, and made the fact Disney hadn't planned out anything beyond TFA extremely obvious. Every time there was a potentially interesting development, it got tossed to the wayside. Just as an example, I was one of the people who went in expecting Bitter Old Luke. I was interested to see the dynamic between him and Rey. And there was SOME of that, but it got eclipsed by the awful Force Bond plot. I still like Kylo as a character (his arc was definitely rushed tho), but it made me hate Rey. I had been holding out hope she would be less boring in TLJ, but she was still as lazily written as ever. And now she's the sort of person who fucks off to saaaaave a guy who terrorizes her and potentially screw over her friends/allies even more. People are excusing it by saying "well she's being tempted by the Dark Side!!!" but that's just an excuse. Luke's arc in the OT wasn't high art by any means, but it was far better than this.

No. 232508

I kind of saw the force bond thing and Rey really wanting to 'save' Kylo as a nodd to Han Solo.
It was pretty obvious that he was supposed to grow on her as kind of a father figure and he died trying to convince Kylo to return to him.

The only things I found actually bad was, as mentioned, the casino scene (disney trying to paint rich folk as inhumane and cruel was kind of hilarious though) and I can agree that for example the 'romance' between Finn and Rose was very rushed. Rose in general was a really weird addition in general imo.

If you've seen it, what did you think of Rogue One?
That movie was really terrible imo.

A lot of the yn fans tho pissed me off and sounded so pretentious about this game. They act like their fan theories are set in stone and any resemblance of a canon is threatening.

Same. It's sad when I see my childhood series getting butchered.

I'm just waiting to hear about Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot with a diversity cast, maybe they will make Sabrina a tranny or whatever is the hottest thing to be at that moment.

You think that the showbiz has reached a low but then they manage to lower your expectations you didn't even know you had.

Sabrina won't be anything like the previous show. It's based on pic related so it's going to be dark and edgy, not like the quirkly, kid-friendly series from the 90s. They've already cast the lead girl, not sure about any other characters.

I'm pretty pissed because any media reporting on the new series always include photos of the original series and how they're "so excited for a reboot!" and not artwork from the comic, which I'm sure they'd be less excited about. I'd say all the hype being generated from the media is going to leave a lot of fans really disappointed over the new series. And that's coming from someone who has read the comic, really enjoyed it and is really looking forward to the series.

Omg this. I grew up watching H20 so I gave this a chance. It's vapid and terrible. I skipped forward to the episode that Cariba Heine appears in and it actually broke my heart. The entire episode revolves around how Rikki is an asshole and how mermaids born at sea are so much stronger and better than people who became mermaids by accident. It felt like a giant "fuck you" to the original series, rather than a respectful tribute. They could have had her act like a mentor to the new girls or something. It actually felt like someone's shitty H20 fanfiction, except worse.

The Vampire Diaries/The Originals are now getting another spin-off called Legacies which is supposed to be about the children of the characters from the previous two shows. Not sure what to think about it yet. I have a feeling it's going to be shit because the cast are going to be younger than the cast of the previous shows which makes me think that they're trying to appeal to a new, younger audience rather than the original fans who are probably all now in their 20s.

Roswell, which I loved so much and was really upset by it being cancelled is getting a reboot. I'm NOT happy about this one. It's exactly what >>252128 was complaining about:

>After returning to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico, the daughter of undocumented immigrants discovers her teenage crush is an alien who has kept his unearthly abilities hidden his entire life. She protects his secret as the two reconnect, but when a violent attack points to a greater alien presence on Earth, the politics of fear and hatred threaten to expose him.

I 100% honestly thought this was one of those joke calarts parodies people sometimes do and was shocked to find out that it's legitimate. The animation looks bad and the character designs are a fucking joke. The story boards looked SO lazily done.

I doubt it'll go beyond the pilot though, the like/dislike ratio on the reveal video is 2.5 likes to 34k dislikes and it's growing. I'm pretty sure the show's creators are going to have a meltdown on Twitter about the audience reaction, just like all the other Calarts reboot assholes before them.

ugh I'm so mad. This looks so fucking bad. And less feminist??
So instead of the sisters discovering for themselves through their curiosity and intelligence, its explained to them by a man. Instead of self-sufficient career women, they're teenagers.
And the acting is atrocious, the actresses are far less attractive, and the script is so much more hamfisted. They tell everything instead of showing it, and everything is overacted to spell it out for the audience.
The original had its cheesy moments but it was also endearing, genuine, and stylish. Everyone I knew wanted to be one of the sisters (I'm a Piper), they were empowering and inspiring. Not whiney teenagers going "OH MY GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING?" Like christ. I'm pissed. So so pissed.

I definitely do. First one is okay but it's a remake of one part of the original series and not much has changed.
Second one seems to be loved by the fans but I personally didn't like it. Main characters lost their depth while other characters that were important have become nothing but a background accessory. Also introduction of Mari which is a pointless character used only for fanservice.
Third one is complete and utter shit. I don't know what they were thinking with that one but it seems it was made by a bunch of dumb otaku who can only write shitty anime stereotypes. What was Anno thinking?

Is fourth one coming out? I hope it never does, it's beyond saving.

I think the problem with those movies is that they didn't really get the point of the original? Or at least the spirit of them, I think. The original series was about hiding depression/severe anxiety behind the guise of robots fighting deities, with the creator's depression being the main inspiration for the show itself. But, the reboots seem to think that robots fighting deities with weird bodyhorror was the point, and not a means to an end, so it comes off as so very shallow, imo.

No. 257954

The original series, manga and show, is my all time favorite and I loved the intricacies of it and how it handled depression and love and so many other things.

…but I like the reboots lol. I think I was just so pumped for new NGE stuff that I put on rose colored glasses. I didn’t like Mari at first, and agree she’s just fanservice fodder, but I was actually really fond of 3.0. But I can see why people dislike them.

And having a man explain it to them? Having them so whiney? The original was about badass women who could take on anything. I really loved them as a young girl.
NBC tried to reboot this years ago but cancelled the project. The original cast all said how much they disliked the idea back then. Why is it going forward now?

the choice of outfit and styling almost seems like it's MEANT to polarize their audience. like it's designed to make the tumblr kids go yaaaasssss werk and make their anti-sjw audience cry about their faves being "ruined."
They could make the moderate majority on either side happy if they just used someone cute and styled somewhat like the character but not white.

Even with Heathers absolutely (divine) hysterical wardrobes fitted with pads and clip on earrings, the characters had power to them. They were real embodiments of stacies, you feel their disgust for the world even when they portrayed it in the most vapid comedic ways.

The reboot however couldn't even choose attractive minorities like wtf
Fugly tubby with a pixie cut, Inbred Ginger Fag and Possibly trans Dora the explorer(who doubles as a hooker in detroit)?
No matter how good this script is any insult out their mouth is it's own selfdiss bruh.
I need to know if Martha is gonna be made into some ana chan or what cause I can't see them commiting whale on whale abuse.

I only played the first nulara game but there were no tombs, more like caves where there's a convenient treasure lying around.

Also, the characters are two dimensional, the plot is full of plot holes, the OST is forgettable.

I didn't even bother pirating the other nulara games.

Don't know if this counts as a reboot, but I grew up reading Archie comics and I laughed when I saw the trailer for Riverdale.
My curiosity peaked and I ended up watching the first season. It kept me watching, but only for bad reasons. A light hearted comic about highschool friends turned into a drama that young girls would be into. Archie fucked the teacher, the weird incesty vibe I got from Cheryl Blossom, the whole pregnancy story line…So dumb. It reminded me of scream queens or vampire diaries or pretty little liars or one of those trash tv shows aimed at teen girls.
Jughead is a fucking emo instead a a jokester who eats all the time.
I feel liked Archie like tge simpsons, is one of those shows that just shouldn't be attempted to be made into live action, let alone a shitty teen soap opera.
If they did wanna remake it, a movie would have been better, but even then, Archie is always going back and forth on Betty and Veronica, so a movie wouldn't allow closure.

I feel like I am alone in this opinion, because every girl I know loves this show. Even lose the fact that it was based on as comic, and I still get shitty netflix mediocre vibes from it.

I know they always make the excuse that nu-lara is younger and more naive uwu and that's why she's so different, but part of me thinks they made her dull because they were scared of offending people by making her sexual again.
People will keep bitching that she's a sexist character or that young girls and kids play the new games and it isn't appropriate.
Most video game women are sexualised anyway, not sure why they had to go all PC and chop her tits off and take away her sass and short shorts.
I never even thought of her sexually when I played the games as a kid.

The new Sabrina series is amazing! But like >>252131 said, it is not a reboot of the sitcom. It is based on the comics and thus darker and more serious. It still has its funny moments, though, and while it takes note from current series and aesthetics, there is something very "90‘s" about this show. It's all about strong female characters and female solidarity and it's just very magical and a bit disconnected from the real world which I personally love. They don't even use smartphones! And the witches are badass and pretty evil. It reminds me of a less gruesome AHS: Coven and has the perfect amount of scariness. It's a bit like the Monster of the Week shows (such as Buffy) with villains that are not too scary, which is very 90's, too.

No. 316821

The Sabrina comic reboot was pretty good but the new TV series sucks. It's like they got confused as to whether they were rebooting the classic teen drama Sabrina, or the dark new actual-witchcraft comic series, so they just end up with a mediocre mix of the two with some AHS shock value yawn-worthy shit thrown in.

No. 317177

I couldn't finish the first episode and I'm really disappointed because I enjoyed the comic. It's littered with SJW propaganda and school bullies are blamed on "white patriarchy" lmao. Riverdale is far superior imo and that's saying a lot because Riverdale is a messy, unrealistic cringe fest. At least the diversity in Riverdale is natural, not forced and it doesn't treat you like an idiot during serious scenes and spoonfeed you things like "White people are bad, aren't they?" or "Being transphobic is bad, isn't it?"

Also the blur effect is nauseating. What kind of idiot directed this?

exactly, if you want to include diversity do it naturally - it doesn't work ever if it's in your face, even things marketed to young children do it more subtly than that for example disney. And also what's with "white patriarchy"? when they were just talking about males, it's so weird shoehorning this new feminism at the time that it was based was 2nd wave feminism?

Also confused about the period, night of the living dead being new in cinema was in the 60s.
Yet the cousin has a modern laptop when laptops weren't invented till the 80s (like ugly prehistoric version) and used commonly much later like 2000s also keeping in mind the sleeker design. So???

I thought so, too. I think her character is a bit ambivalent because she often seems comfortable with being a tomboyish girl. I thought she was lesbian, too, because of her internal struggles (wants to be "normal" etc.) and how she cuddles another female character. However, especially in the later episodes it becomes clear that she probably is trans. Really hoped that she was just enjoying the boyish look and think her being trans is not very well written, too.

That being said, I don't think the show is "SJW propaganda". Yes, SJW topics are addressed in the fist episodes, but it's really just a lazy attempt on appearing to be woke. Most of it is cringy and they should just have left it out because there's really no point. But that's what makes it bearable imho. It's easy to ignore the SJW tendencies of the show. I am at episode 7 now and it's rarely addressed anymore.

I also thought the political commentary was unnecessary and unnatural. I finished the show today and really don’t care for it, which is a shame because I love witches and I liked the world building (for the most part—some of it worked while other parts didn’t). I think the way it was marketed really ruined it for me. I had no interest watching the show because I assumed it was a reboot of the ABC Family series, and someone I follow on tumblr was blogging about it and mentioning Satan and other things that made me go wait what. That made me watch it, but it’s also what makes me not care for it. I was sitting there the whole time thinking who asked for an edgy Sabrina reboot?

Since many anons have criticized the Sabrina reboot for being too SJW, what are your opinions on the new Charmed now that it has been aired? I have only watched one episode so far and I think it's ridiculous. While I defended Sabrina and thought its SJW elements were bearable, Charmed is really over the top. There is nothing magical about it, too, it only focuses on feminist topics and the writing is incredibly bad. I'm embarrassed for the writers; and I actually share most of their opinions on feminism. But the way they process it is just cringeworthy. I miss old Charmed and while it was not the most diverse show, its feminism definitely was more natural and less forced.

No. 324330

>>324312
This is the problem I have. Not everything has to be diverse. Forced diversity is what is killing us. Look at shows like Sabrina. I want to like it, but the trans thing is too much.

The original Charm had a lot of good things going for it. I remember loving the drama and magic, and how the sisters stuck together through thick and thin. It had a great message that anyone could take home and my sister and i are from PR. Good writing is always better than shitty writing with diversity. Look at how the new mass effect suffered from that when it was fine.

Pikachu’s fur texture looks awful especially on his tail. It looks exactly like a stuffed animal. Maybe they were going for that? The rest of the Pokémon don’t look any better. Apparently, they hired that realistic Pokémon artist who’s popular on Reddit for this movie. I never liked his art because the Pokémon he draws all look grotesque and completely lose the spirit of their original forms.

Despite how ugly the Cg looks to me, I still want to watch it because it’s a ridiculous live action Pokémon movie. I never thought something like this would happen. I just hope this movie is not bad in a way that’s boring.

Yeah, I know he didn't star in it but my main point was that the shittiness of video game movies such as Mario Bros. probably has deterred a lot of A-list actors from wanting to star in them even if the role is perfect for them. Upon first impression, this Detective Pikachu movie just screams of another shitty failure similar to Mario Bros. to me (gritty look with cartoony characters in a realistic setting except with shitty cg attempting to make them look real now instead of with animatronics) and I wouldn't blame A-listers from wanting to stay away from it.
