Silent Hills concept trailer revealed at TGS 2014!
Wtf am I watching??
Some of the visual trickery is clever. I liked the door at the end best.
It’s not scary though. The more over-the-top and overt you get in horror, the more you cross towards schlock. I love schlock, but bug-vomiting severed heads and naked ladies being face-fucked by giant dildo-headed monsters aren’t really the subtle psychological horror that is Silent Hill. It does look fun, but it doesn’t look filthy and horrifying and Silent Hillish. PT didn’t either, though again PT had its own charm. It was innovative and nice to look at and full of good ideas, it just wasn’t scary or Silent Hillish.
I just wish they’d started a new IP :/
Yeah, but Kojima’s material is all schlock, camp and ham. He idolizes some of the cheesiest american action movies from the 90s, and his games wind up being a lot like them. Look at how progressively silly the MGS series got while still trying to take itself seriously. The new Silent Hill will probably have some of that “Boo!” jump out at you crap instead of actual mindfucks, and feature dialogue, blocking and action sequences that look like they came straight out of The Running Man.
So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?
the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.
A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.
Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.
the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.
The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.
Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.
Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.
A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.
The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.
Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.
But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
I want to be able to find these again.
I want to watch all of these.
and don’t forget “The Savage Planet”!
Savage Planet is some crappy B-movie horror film, so in english La Planete Sauvage is known as Fantastic Planet.

Majjjjjoraaaaaa’s Maaaaask Pacccck!
I assume one of the new characters is gonna be the Skull Kid and there’s probably gonna be Fierce Deity Link, but I hope he’s just an alt costume instead of the other character.
It’s probably not going to be but I’m still carrying the Gerudo torch and hoping if we can’t have OoT Nabooru, maybe they’ll give us pirate captain Aveil.
One new character for Twilight Princess? Out of all of those strong characters in that game? Let me guess, it’s Rusl because he’s another dude with a sword and shield so another Link alt. I’d love it if it was Telma, or either Yeto or Yeta. Imagine Yeta: kicking ass as a yeti woman wearing a giant knitted tube by dropping chunks of ice on enemies. That image is so wonderful that they really need to make it happen.
if you don’t think this carries an important message about our society then you are what is wrong with human society today
And this is why when you see a post empowering and uplifting black women, do not invade it with “don’t you mean all women.” No, because this is not the reality of “all women.”
I love Anastasia but they get so much shit wrong and I had to talk about it.
As a history major currently studying Soviet Russia I would like to formally bless this post
History majors have a hard time just sitting and enjoying period pieces….especially with others
"Wait a second…that’s not right…"
^ You understand me friend
I was about to be like “jeez it’s just a cartoon” but nearly died laughing at this post multiple time. read this post. it’s good post
"Non. I do not give une fuck"
jesus christ, its a kids movie! of course its not gonna be— this is a thing of beauty
We watched this in AP euro and all we did was make jokes
HOPEFULLY NOT WITH HIS BAT
Bartok was the best part of the movie.
it is a dreadful animated film, corny and saccharine and generally just quite bad…
“And like it or not, more and more women are gamers, just like you and I. So instead of completely dismissing their concerns, maybe, just maybe, take a little more time to listen to what they feel, why they feel they’ve been mostly marginalized in games.
I look forward to games that take more time building their female personalities, rather than just using them as tools or helpers that throw you things, and you should too. Because frankly, that’s gonna lead to far more interesting stories, opportunities and new experiences.
And honestly, guys, we’re always gonna have our stripper mini-games and our princess-savers, so why not campaign alongside them to see more mature games rise for everyone else as well?”

Selfies. Selfies everywhere
Not even gonna lie, that Damian one had me tearin up.
Superman’s like “Oh my God, Lex just liked my selfie. What a creep! Is that Captain Cold over there? Yeah, the guy with no sleeves on. How did he even get in here? Nobody wears parkas anymore.”
Batman doesn’t smile unless literally forced to.
Neo-Nazis get their shit pushed in by native american grandmothers, who then capture their flag, take selfies with it, and then burn it.
Neo Nazi status: Wrekt.
You will never be as cool as these grandmothers.
literally the most punk rock thing on my dash ever. Nazi Punks fuck off
literally these grannies will beat out every single white dudebro in a game of CAPTURE THE FLAG
when I grow up I hope to be as badass as these women
how the hell are some of u guys 13/14
when i was that age i was unironically watching shitty amvs on youtube and roleplaying on gaia
BACK IN MY DAY SMUT FICS WERE CALLED LEMONS
BOYXBOY DONT LIKE DONT READ
When I was 13 youtube didn’t exist and you had to download your amvs for eight hours on a dial up modem with a filesharing program and the sound wouldn’t work because the computers would never have the right plugins to read the compression right.
No torrents either, if someone picked up the phone and cut the connection or your uploader signed off you had to start again from scratch.
When I was 13 the internet didn’t exist.
I really dig this episode (Star Trek: the Next Generation S06e07 “Rascals”). If you don’t think preteen!Jean-Luc and Dad!Riker is cool, we can agree to disagree, but if you don’t think preteen!Guinan and preteen!Ro Laren jumping on the bed is just the best thing in the world, we can’t be friends
This is one of my favorite episodes.
remember that once in the late 70’s a face character for pooh at disneyland was accused of hitting a child in the face on accident and so the dude came back to court after the recess in the pooh costume and answering the questions as pooh and fucking danced in the courtroom in order to prove that the arms were too high up to hit the kid and he was acquitted within 20 minutes
That’s some Phoenix Wright shit right there, I swear

Because, as we all know, when women pass puberty all of their organs are removed and they are immediately shrink wrapped.
My first reaction was “yeah but it’s real vs illustrated”, but then I took a second look at the image, and yeah, it’s interesting how the men hardly change at all in comic form. There’s obvious intent to keep the adult male versions reflective of the real life ones. They don’t get anything exaggerated, while the women get the usual comic book cinched in waist, large rounded breasts, etc additions, plus they’re thinner, even the ones that are the adult versions of the kids (look at Catwoman’s arms o_o)
(On a side note, it’s also annoying that neither Penguin is fat. Like, they already made Amanda Waller thin in the nu52, and now Penguin here too? :\ )
