  • This image actually goes kinda hard.

  • in your opinion which cartoon series timed their cinema movie debut perfectly?
  • The original title was "South Park: All Hell Breaks Loose", but the MPAA wasn't comfortable releasing a movie with the word "hell" in it. So they renamed it as a subtle penis joke.

  • Reject reality
  • "No one knows what it's like to be the Batman..."

  • DVDs are dying right as streaming has made them appealing again
  • Ah, gotcha. It's annoying when people use "DVD" as a catch-all term for all optical media.

  • DVDs are dying right as streaming has made them appealing again
  • They're talking about 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, which was introduced in 2016. The video is still compressed, but it's still much higher quality than DVD and Blu-ray, and can hold 60-100 GB of data.

  • DVDs are dying right as streaming has made them appealing again
  • That's true, but the DVD-Video standard only supports MPEG-2 at 720x576 (PAL), or 720x480 (NTSC).

    Sure, you can put a 1080p AVC-encoded video on a DVD formatted as a data disc, but it won't play on a DVD player.

  • DVDs are dying right as streaming has made them appealing again
  • while DVDs are 576p-720p

    576p is the absolute maximum. Most DVDs are actually 480p.

    What's something that seems obvious within your profession, but the general public seems to misunderstand?
  • "Can you hack my ex-girlfriends Instagram?"

    Or, "I have an amazing idea for an app..."

  • How do we replace YouTube?
  • That is a temporary solution. OP is looking for a whole other service to replace YouTube.

  • How do we replace YouTube?
  • I'm not sure if you can replace YouTube. It's too popular and has been a mainstay of the Internet for 19 years. We won't be able to convince people to just up and leave YouTube.

    Best case scenario is to lead by example and start sharing videos from PeerTube.

  • in your opinion which cartoon series timed their cinema movie debut perfectly?
    • South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)
    • The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004)

    Will Deadpool & Wolverine save the Marvel Studios slump? Disney boss Bob Iger says it'll be the biggest MCU movie "in a long time"
  • I think it's because I've synonymized "heavy marketing" with "bad movie"

    Totally understand. It almost feels like Ryan Reynolds is gonna say "the hiearchy of power in the MCU is about to change".

  • Will Deadpool & Wolverine save the Marvel Studios slump? Disney boss Bob Iger says it'll be the biggest MCU movie "in a long time"

    We are in July, which movies from 2024 would you recommend so far?
    • The Fall Guy was one of the most fun times I've had at the movies this year. It's an action romcom involving a Hollywood stuntman trying to solve a murder mystery.
    • Mars Express is technically from 2023, but it got a limited theatrical release a few months ago, so I'll include it here. It's an animated futuristic sci-fi adventure, with a police detective and her robot partner solving a conspiracy.
    • SPYxFAMILY Code: White is an anime film based on the series. You don't need to know anything about the show to watch it, they explain everything in the exposition. Another fun and action-packed film to add to your list, when it eventually releases in the US.
    • Civil War is not actually about the war in the movie, it's about the journalists trying to get the perfect shot. Though I haven't seen it yet, I've heard it's very chilling, and the sound mix is amazing.
    • Of course, I'm a fan of the less cerebral and "turn your brain off" films like Kung Fu Panda 4, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, and Despicable Me 4.
