Re: So what have you guys been watching lately?

And really, I don’t think we should care whether creators are “true fans” or not. Fans have created some shit reboots and continuations, and people with no fandom for series have produced works that respected the fans. Besides, fandom is multi-faceted. People like different aspects of things. I felt like Revelations respected what I like about He-Man and made me feel like a fan again (if an adult fan instead of a kid fan). That’s enough for me. I don’t like purity tests in fandom.

So much this.

Just go into Revelations knowing that He-Man is not the main character. I think that is what most people are upset about if they are upset at all. I found it enjoyable enough to keep watching when the rest comes out.


Got I hate how this site randomly logs you out. I had a whole post typed up...gone, because the site just decided that I need to log in again and wiped out my post. Sigh

I'm not gonna type up the same stuff again, but I will say that this was the issue. Cownfish TV had a leak from an insider saying that the show would be about Teela and not He-Man. They reported this and said that it was going to upset a lot of fans because it's basically a bait and switch. The first trailer of the show even was all about He-Man. Kevin Smith maligned them on Twitter and basically called them liars. Well, fast forward to where we are now, and Smith has been exposed as the liar. He keeps denying that he misled people though and is still bad mouthing Clownfish TV. I have seen a LOT of negativity towards him online since then. His credibility has been hurt a lot. You just look a comments on youtube videos featuring him and he's getting trashed by a lot of people

I like the Clownfish TV youtube channel. Do they focus on negativity a lot? Sure. That's their schtick you could say, but their reporting is usually accurate...as are many of their predictions. That's all that matters to me. Facts are what I care about

So here's my stance on using trailers as an accurate means of assessing a movie/tv show's plot and/or quality: Don't

Admittedly, I learned this the hard way by going to see The Breakup with my wife. We both thought it looked funny from the trailer. Turns out all the funny moments were used in the trailer. 95% of the movie was Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn being assholes to each other. I've never felt so cheated by a trailer (except maybe Bryan Cranston's role in Gozilla 2014 but the movie was decent enough regardless).

I'm not trying to change anyone's mind on Revelations or Kevin Smith. Just be wary of trailers. Especially since they often tread into spoiler territory these days.

I think if Revelations were a movie where you had a buy a ticket there would be some just cause to be annoyed. This is on Netflix. I read up on Clownfish TV and intend not to get within a solid 10 ft pole of it.

Anyway, regardless of expectations, Revelations tells a good story despite Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Just to add a funny end to this story, Clownfish TV also hated her voice acting. In fact, everyone seems to agree on that from what I've seen. So there's at least one thing you would agree with Clownfish on :lol:
