I'm thinkin' it's time we got some classic cartoonage up in this beyotch. My vote is for the Dexter's Laboratory movie, Ego Trip. Here is the synopsis from wiki:
An army of robots comes out of Dexter's time machine, under orders to "destroy the one who saves the future." Believing them to mean him, Dexter travels to the future in order to see this event happen. He is horrified to find himself a wimpy young man, brainwashed so that he cannot remember his past, who works designing office cubicles for Mandark. Dexter convinces his older self that he is a genius who will one day save the future, and they travel to a later time together. Although they arrive in a scientific utopia, they find that the Dexter in this period is a doddering old man who can barely remember anything he has ever done. Backing up a few years, the three Dexters discover the world has fallen into ruin; the Dexter in this time is a muscular hero. All four of them team up to bring down Mandark, who has used the power of an invention stolen from Dexter to become an evil overlord.
Basically, I'm a huge fan of Dexter's Lab, and I remember watching this thinking, "This movie is amazing. Why isn't it in theaters?" While I might not go that far today, I still thin k it was a terrifically produced TV movie. It runs for about teh same length as the other movies that are shown on Fridays do (about 80 min) and considering how much the chat lights up whenever Dexter's Lab comes on, well, I think TA would get a big boost in viewers as well. Besides all that, it's just a damn funny movie. I especially like how each time period Dexter goes to is a homage to a different version of the future imagined by sci-fi over the years. Including utopia (old man Dexter), Mad Max style wasteland (middle aged dexter), and Orwellian Big Brother society ruled by corporations (mid twenties Dexter).
So, thoughts? Support? COME ON!
I was asked to explain how I put music on my profile, so I figured I may as well make a tutorial for everyone. ^.^
- The first step is to go to your profile and click "Edit".
- Then click "Profile", because it's the ONLY section that allows video embedding.
- Next, click "Input format" and select "video". You'll also see a link for more information about formatting under it; I definitely recommend that you read it. It's full of useful information.
- Now click "Switch to plain text editor" so you can code your music.
- Copy this code: [video:"PASTE YouTube URL HERE" height:1 width:1 autoplay:1]
- Et voila! You have music on your profile! Now dance to it! We won't judge! Dance your little heart out, you groove monkey... okay, that's enough dancing. Stop that.
Runtime: 24 minutes
The story takes place in the far future of the 51st Century, during the year 5053.
While visiting Luna for the festival, Viscount Albert de Morcerf and Baron Franz d'Epinay make the acquaintance of the Count of Monte Cristo, a self-made nobleman. When they part, the Count promises to visit Albert in Paris. After he arrives, he introduces himself to the most powerful families in France (the Morcerfs, the Danglars, and the Villeforts).
The general plot of Gankutsuou, while broadly the same as the novel on which it is based, changes many aspects of the source material. In the novel, the narrative arc follows the Count chronologically; in the anime, the story begins with Albert and Franz meeting the Count on Luna (which occurs, in Rome, many hundreds of pages into the book), and the Count's back story is pieced together throughout the series. The anime's plot includes supernatural elements, different fates for some characters, the disposal of several side-plots, and an altogether different ending. (Wikipedia)
Reasons to Watch:
Gankutsuou is one of my favorite Anime series of all time due to a few potent reasons. For one, the art direction is wildly detached from the norm. There are very few Animes, or pieces of animation in general that somewhat match this. Besides the rich colors, flavor, and texture Gankutsuou is well animated in pretty much all areas, so not only is the art direction powerful but so is the care to detail when it comes to movement. Besides that the story is loosely (and I mean loosely) based upon the The Count of Monte Cristo, the book by Alexandre Dumas. In my opinion (having read several of Dumas' other works), The Counte of Monte Cristo is by far his best and strongest work. Truly there are few other Animes of this caliber and you would be remiss to avoid watching Gankutsuou.
Come on, we have all done (or said) something stupid in our lives (anybody who says they haven't should have privates parts shreaded with a weed wacker). So, yeah... go ahead and start telling what was the dumbest thing you've said/done.
There is your perscription from Dr. Cube.
sry to make a whole post just for this but how do i get an avatar pic i cant figure it out.thanks for your time and help
Yeeeah, I tried adding a few pictures to my profile, and it uh. Well, it exploded. Yeah, just look at it. I didn't mean to. T______T
All I did was add some simple images with HTML, LOL. D:
So now all the content is jumbled together in a single section, and I can't seem to undo the damage -- but if it can't be fixed that's fine. I kinda like it! Just wondering if this usually happens. xD
This movies is based off episodes 97-126 of the anime one piece
A notorious pirate gang known as the Straw hats are escorting their friend Princess Vivi to her homeland of Alabasta in order to try and stopped a war orchestrated by the Kingdom'S hero Sir Crocodile. Crocodile & his secret organization known as Barouqe works have framed Vivi's father, King Cobra for using "dance powder" which is an illegal Substance that basically steals rain from other regions and territories. Using the dance powder has caused Long periods of drought for these once allied nations and a have enraged their citizens. This caused a rebel army to be formed that planing to go to war against Cobra's royal guard. Vivi and the straw hats have to stop the war from happening by defeating Crocodile and his Organization and informing everyone that crocodile is the true enemy.But will they make it in time?
I'm suggesting this film because it has everything you could want in a movie, let alone an anime movie.The story is very interesting and is able to entertain the viewer throughout the entire film, and the animation is amazing, especially during the fight scenes. The story is more of an action/adventure/Fantasy type, but also has a lot of moments that will make you laugh. There might even be some moments that make you sad. The characters are easy to understand as people which makes you enjoy viewing the film even more.And the Dubbing of the movie is top notch.
I'd like to suggest Gun Sword as an addition to the stream. While it was never on the original Toonami (or Cartoon Network, for that matter), I think it'll compliment the site really well. To put it into perspective, if you like Trigun and Cowboy Bebop, you're probably really going to like this show.
Here's a video containing the major fight scene from the first episode. Keep in mind that this is the first episode, before the show really started heating up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WChxcFgBk4
The show was written by Hideyuki Kurata, who also worked on R.O.D., the Hellsing OVA, and Excel Saga. It centers around a man by the name of Van, a wanderer searching for a man with a clawed right hand, who is the murderer of Van's fiance on his wedding day. The show has wonderful art, fantastic action, and great dubs, and if I recall correctly, got fairly rave reviews from Anime Insider and Newtype magazine when it first came out.
Let me know what you guys think!
