And that’s why Soundwave is a truck or plane these days.

The fuck are you talking about, Soundwave is a Satellite. When he’s not a BOOMBOX LIKE HE ALWAYS WAS.

TFA!Soundwave was like a truck carrying speakers like you see at a concert but aside from that…no.

Marvel Vs. Comics

nashscribblings:

So, have we all seen The Winter Solider?  Of course we have.  Marvel Movies as a franchise are probably this generation’s Star Wars, only better: more than three of them are really good.  Also?  No Jar Jar.

It’s been astonishing not only the popularity but the turnaround of the “comic book movie.”  Up until the early 2000’s, comic book hits were a fluke.  Superman and Superman 2 were the only sensible entries in their series. Batman (1991) and (arguably) Batman Returns were the only two from their franchise to be solid, watchable films.  Same can be said for the first TMNT, and the breakout popularity of Blade can only really be attributed to its lead actor.  Beyond that, the history of films based on comics was one painful misstep after another, rising and falling based on studio whims and divided vision.

It was Spider-Man and X-Men that pointed the way, though oddly neither of them being under Marvel’s direct control (Sony and Fox, respectively).  Sam Raimi is most likely the father of the modern comic book film.  He changed as little as possible.  He stuck by the essence of the character.  He tried to tell the most important story in Peter Parker’s history.  And he took it seriously, with the love of someone who read comics and wanted to see it done right.  X-Men took the same route, also finding that great middle ground that is a successful adaptation.  But when sequels came and creative control was swung around like a trailer park in a tornado, the crash and burn was inevitable.

When Marvel got its feet under it with the breakout success of Iron Man, that’s when everything changed … and sadly, that’s when comic books ended.

Did you guys know that carrots are actually bad for rabbits? They’re too high in sugar and can lead to tooth decay and other serious health defects in our furry little friends. So why did Bugs Bunny eat them all the time? Because of Clark Gable, that’s why.

The reference might not seem so obvious to us know, but when Bugs first appeared in theaters over seventy years ago the audience immediately understood that when Bugs ate a carrot and talked with his mouth full; he was parodying Clark Cable in Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night (1934).

It turns out that, according to Friz Freleng’s unpublished memoirs, that It Happened One Night was one the animators favorite films and that at least three characteristics of Bugs Bunny are based on the film. Besides Clark Gable inspiring Bugs’ carrot addiction; his personality was based on Oscar Shapely, a minor character in the film who consistently referred to Gable as Doc. Not only that, the famous Rabbit was named after Bugs Dooley; an imaginary character mentioned in the film.

Sure, It Happened One Night is considered to be one the best romantic comedies of all time, and it might have been directed by Frank Capra, who’s arguably the greatest American film director ever; but this might be one of those rare cases where the parody has outlived the original reference.

And I was talking about this with someone the other day; I’m not sure where I heard that it was supposed to refer to groucho marx’s cigar (must’ve been someone drawing conclusions from the “this means war” line). This makes a lot more sense, and puts a lid on the whole “where does the rabbits eating carrots thing comes from”

literally a cartoon character is responsible for cultural association of the vegetable and animal to the point of real life rabbits being fed carrots when they shouldn’t be, I don’t know if that’s amazing or horrible
