I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I LIVE

@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

Any thoughts on the new Jumanji remake?

It does little to grab my attention. I'm very skeptical about remakes though. Last one I remember getting excited about was Total Recall and it was a serious let down for me...

Eh. I dun really think it needs a remake. I mean I'll probably go see it, but it's not exciting yet.

Also it's kinda a reboot sequel thing. So you don't really know what side of the line it falls on.

It was the same premise, but with a sci-fi theme and it all takes place in a house. It's worthwhile as far as being funny and entertaining.

I really enjoyed the original Jumanji.  Looks like the remake is taking ideas from the short-lived tv series.

Why not just a re release of the original Jumanji but this time have better looking CGI animals?

Because that went over so well with Star Wars. xD

But in all seriousness, just adding better effects doesn't necessarily improve a scene. In fact it can worsen a scene if they don't fit in with the rest of the show.

You can't take for granted that it'll be better, either. The dinosaurs in Jurassic World look way worse than the dinosaurs in the original Jurassic Park, even though JW was made over two decades later and had a larger budget even after adjusting for inflation. Well, the dinos look fine, actually... but the way they move is uncanny.

This is why Steven Spielberg is a great director. He knows the limits of his technology and how to work around them. A lot of directors today still haven't learned that lesson.

Agree with JP:  those dinosaurs still look real.

The tyrannosaurus and indominous looked pretty realistic, but the raptors looked very fake. But for the sake of outdated CGI, theirs no harm in polishing it up to look less crude.

 

Here for example. Neither can replace the real Jabba puppet, though.Jabba03.jpg

Yep, Jabba should stay a puppet.  It convinced me enough.
