    ikr? The atmosphere of that final fight with Dio is bone-chillingly dreary. And yes, it's difficult to put one's thumb on it ('seamless' is a nice unorthodox way to word it), but my thoughts are (granted, going off this with presumptions regarding OVA's, haven't researched this specifically) that OVA had a bit more in the way of budget as they normally do versus a tv show. The TV series of Jojo's LOOKS great, and I'm glad they got to be more vibrant and ostentatious with the colors like Araki's manga, but the actual animation quality is lesser than that of the OVA. It just comes across as stiff...Japanese animation tends to have fewer drawings per frame than, say, American productions anyway, but even then David Production's Jojo's is minimalist on that front (but it's still awesome and looks great).

    Anyway, back on point, I too am disparaged when I see 'nerds' and 'geeks' of all people essentially bullying other people (if I had a dime for every time I heard 'get on my level' I'd be a rich man). Of ALL people, shouldn't we as 'nerds' (or however we're supposed to self-identify these days) strive for better since we all have probably experienced at one point or another being made fun of in school for our nerdy pursuits?

    I think the fact that it didn't really have any background music (or if it did it was very subtle) added to that, as well. Dio felt like more of a threat in his 'high' form, whereas it ended too soon in the TV anime. It was a bummer that they cut the scene where the senator runs down a bunch of civillians, too. Overall, I found the TV Dio's World to be underwhemling. I'd been looking forward to it since SC began and I couldn't wait to see how they'd top the OVA... in the end, they didn't. But it was still good!

    I think it's funny that we're talking about animation quality, considering the all buzz over the most recent episode...



    I didn't find it that bad myself (not in motion at least...) but ah well.

    I would hope it's mostly an internet thing, people love to be assholes to people they've never met, especially when they don't have to deal with any repercussions. It's shitty, but considering how common it is I think it says a lot about our society. If people said 'get on my level' offline as much as they do online, a lot of people would have broken noses. xD

    LOL too right, too right. Ah, trolls....


    Oh, and now that we've exhumed Ben-Hur (flop), saw they're doing another Magnificent Seven because...well, because reasons. I see it's got that guy from Parks & Rec that's since been in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World so you know it'll do decent in sales. (Speaking of remakes/reboots yet again...though, admittedly, I did enjoy that one as a decent action flick that very subtly lamp-shaded the fact that it's a movie made of recycled parts.)

    At LEAST the original Magnificent Seven, being a re-telling of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, didn't hide from the fact AND gave it a twist by transposing the premise/setting to gunslingers in the wild west.

    I've seen it, it really is that bad. I love the original Total Recall though, I don't care what anybody says.

    My dad recently found Monster Rancher on hulu and got us binge watching yesterday.

    The sad thing with a lot of these reboots is that the new versions often cast aside what the original works were actually trying to say.

    Like the first Robocop's commentary on the consumerism of the 80's.
    Or Ben-Hur's take on Jesus as a idea, not a character.

    Sure updates are fun.
    But it seems the Hollywood folks forget that the original films had some real messages.
