Reblog if you think Dreamworks is underappreciated

missmartian23:

I would appreciate them more if they would quit ignoring and belittling their fans.

(Oh, and if they made a Megamind 2 but that goes without saying.)

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

  1. Warcraft: Lord of the Clans(This is a book about Thrall, the eventual leader of the Horde, and how he came to be. I really couldn’t put it down and it’s one of the only book-books I’ve actually finished in years.)
  2. Hellsing (These manga are the absolute opposite of what you would expect me to like, but I love it. It’s probably the closest I will ever get to enjoying extremely graphic material.)
  3. Reality Check! (This was an american manga of sorts back in the day of my childhood. The perk of this comic was that it was colored with lots of at-the-time-INCREDIBLE computer techniques. Where other comics had flat colors and perhaps shading, this coming was like a photoshop coloring wet dream with colorful bubble text. I loved it. Plus, nude furry chick. I was disappointed when it was re-released in black and white with clothing edited onto the character. Somewhere I still have a few of the originals…)
  4. Sonic the Hedgehog by Archie Comics (Okay no seriously this comic THIS FUCKING COMIC was my obsession for years and years. I absolutely loved this and the SatAM Sonic cartoon. There was something about it that drew me in as a child— probably the more serious adult themes applied to cartoon characters. Other comics had their musclebound dudes doing superhero things and I really couldn’t relate to them. I started at issue 13 and gave up somewhwere in the 80-90 range. After that there were just too many changes and too many characters, and I couldn’t keep up. It was also adjusting to be like the video games, which was not the charm of SatAM that I was so used to.)
    edit: GODDAMNIT I had one written for the Knuckles the Echidna comics and it got deleted from this somehow. THEY ARE DARK AND AWESOME AND BETTER THAN THE SONIC ONES AND THEY TOOK KIDS SERIOUSLY AND THREW HARSHER THEMES AT THEM and augh nevermind
  5. Art of Megamind (Obvious like is obvious, but there were so many scrapped ideas for this franchise. My favorite part of this is actually the inclusion of the Doom Syndicate, both the character designs themselves (Hot Flaaaaashhhh) and the colored storyboards showing exactly how far they got through production. Also the possibility of Minion dying for real, which is creepy and interesting. Again, this franchise could go a bit more dark and I would die from happiness (Dreamworks, pelase go ask for the rights for Vice, just do it, please please please))
  6. Megamind Prequel Comic (This is about the closest we’ll ever get to seeing a (mostly) IC and canon Megamind as a villain outside of the movie. I obviously have a soft spot for him as a villain, but what drew me into this character comic-wise was his endless optimism. ""Losses" are "learning experiences." "Defeats" build "determination." "Insults" yield "insight." My "Greatest Hits" (referring to his multiple failures) have confirmed your one true weakness, Metro Man… ROXANNE! The only citizen in Metrosity you seem to know by name!” It flowed well with the eventual lesson from the movie: "There’s a benefit to losing; you get to learn from your mistakes.")
  7. Megamind Comics (The other comics. These released after the movie hit theaters and I can’t decide how I feel about them. I’m not sure they knew where they wanted to go with this, and they eventually scrapped it— either due to a lack of money or the criticism of the fandom, who knows. The comics are inconsistent with both eachother and the Movie canon itself, and came off a little TOO silly to me.I’m absolutely alright with general dorkiness on Megamind’s end, he’s a funny character with a lot of depth and a lot of flaws that are fun to work with— it just seemed like this was ALL they could do. Instead of having any more serious themes or even just slightly “dark” themes it was geared entirely towards kids would weren’t being taken seriously. Like I said before about the Sonic/Knuckles series, I loved those comics for taking me seriously and throwing darker themes at me while keeping the charm of cartoon characters. There is a lot of potential for that in the Megamind franchise. A huge plus to these comics is that Megamind appears to still have some sort of relationship continuing with Roxanne beyond the movie, possibly even living together. Their relationship is friendly and respectful like real relationships should be, and like relationships aren’t often portrayed in media.)
    (Hi my name is Filthy and I over-analyze everything.)
  8. World of Warcraft: Vol’Jin Shadows of the Horde (It’s got Vol’Jin in it ITS GOT FUCKING VOL’JIN IN IT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND I WAITED YEARS AND YEARS FOR TROLLS TO HAVE THEIR OWN BOOK AAAA ;A; But no no seriously Vamp got this for me and it’s been sitting on my bed since the trip. I haven’t read it at all. I think I’m afraid. I want it so bad I’m afraid to touch it. Actually this is an ongoing theme in my life, hurp.)
  9. Deadpool by Daniel Way: The Complete Collection - Volume 1 (I got this wanting to know more about Deadpool (thank you Tumblr) and holy shit this character is he okay?? He’s definitely out of his mind and I love him for it. Again, this comic is really graphic and like Hellsing, I have no idea why I can handle it. I guess that’s just the magic of having a genuinely good character.)
  10. Flawed Dogs (My ability to sit through books has been very limited over the years, and I bought this out of curiosity for the fact that Dreamworks bought the rights to make a movie for it. I have a soft spot for animals missing limbs and prosthetics in general, so I’m really hoping they tackle it. And who doesn’t like dogs? No really??)

I didn’t think I’d actually hit 10. Wow. Okay.

Tagging: dani-kin niente-dal justiceisanoncorrosivemetal missmartian23 mykaal/Sev and like everyone else in the fandom ever okay




Anonymous asked:
Hey there! I noticed something interesting about the movie. When Minion said the villainy things were from a store in Romania, it seemed just a funny coincidence to me, because I live in Romania. And whenever Megamind mispronounces a word, it sounds like I (or anyone from Romania) would read it. Even that "Ollo", although the only person I know who usually says that is my grandma. What are your thoughts on this?

I actually wouldn’t have ever known that, so thank you for pointing it out!

Personally, I don’t know if Will Ferrell or Dreamworks thought into this movie as far as it seems they did (the villain is a Nice Guy! And they wonder why women like this movie, lol). Perhaps there was a plot line planned for later in the series, who even knows!

That and, Will Ferrell continues the mispronunciations in the Lego Movie as Lord Business (who is essentially the same exact character voice as Megamind). The po-leesh remover of nai-eel!

I’m sure the fans could work out a bunch of plotbunnies for this, though! Guys, any thoughts on this?




DID I NAIL IT?




If Dreamworks isn’t touching Megamind ever again I vote we make Hot Flash black

Because I really want this

I really really REALLY want this

Ignore canon make everyone queer and get some more color in Metro City

I want this so much you have no idea




Henchmen: Ill Suited

In which Will Ferrell continues to troll the shit out of Dreamworks even more in the most glorious display of passive aggression I’ve ever seen. Or at least that’s how I’d like to see this. I’m going to just start referring to my crazy real-person-related ideas as headcanons.

So my headcanon for this is: Will Ferrell gets pitched this idea for the Lego movie.

"We need a villain voice for our mo—"
"I want it."
"But we didn—"
"I want it."
"Well his name is Lord Business and he’s a Lego—"
"I don’t care I’m just going to act like Megamind again and you can work around it."
"Er. Sure, that’s cool I guess."
"Can we have Jonah Hill too? Make him a dorky fanboy or something, it’ll be hilarious."

My headcanon extends into this heavy desire to be a fly on the wall when Will Ferrell is pitched the idea for the clip above, of a dorky janitor kid in a supervillain museum and getting himself into a famous supervillain’s out-of-control battle suit. 

"We we have a movie about supervillai—"
"I want it."
"But we didn’t-"
"Mine."

So you can imagine the evil cackling coming from me when I find this out. Dreamworks will avoid Megamind and it’s fandom at all costs but Will Ferrell will still grab onto villain role after villain role, all while growling at Dreamworks for the Megamind sequel they began and later canned.

It does make me wonder if Will is actually aware of the Megamind fandom and it’s continued existence within Tumblr. It’s probably safe to assume yes, he knows we exist. And he knows we’re pissed.

Again. Headcanons for real life people. Disregard my insanity as it’s probably-not-any-sort-of-truth-whatsoever. But on the extremely unlikely chance I’ll ever get to meet Will, I be sure to ask a lot of questions about this. I feel like there’s a story here, I really do.

"Shut up Filthy and show us the new thing!"

Yeah yeah. So here’s the link that was given to me (thanks Sev!) which includes a small film that honestly looks really awesome. Look at that combination of 3D and 2D! Seriously, treat yourself.

Oh and lastly, I’ve seen nothing so far stating whether or not he’s actually doing a voice. We will see. Either way, in 2016 make sure to throw your money at Henchmen.




Me: Headcanon: Dreamworks hates me and all employees are warned not to talk to me. "Do not engage! Don't respond! Don't listen to her, she's crazy!"
Vamp: You're the Dreamworks equivalent of a Disney "Treasured Guest"!
Me: YES. YES I AM.

Damn you, Dreamworks. My wallet cries all the time because of you. XP




ladyspock7:

So my kids were watching the movie Turbo the other day…(don’t look at me like that, I didn’t watch it!) (Plus it was free from the library, how could I say no to them?)  I had to walk through the room a few times unfortunately, and overheard a few things.

Such as:  Turbo asks a group of snails if “anyone in the back has any questions.” Granted, this is not a big thing, but it raised my suspicions, because it sounded sort of familiar…

Another scene, one character says to another that, with “my brains and your speed, we should get matching costumes or something.” And I thought “Say WHAT? That sounds VERY familiar.” (This isn’t a direct quote, but I wasn’t about to sit through the damn film and capture every word exactly. Sorry. Maybe I should have.)

One scene near the end, one snail tells his brother that the thing he likes most about him is that he never gives up.

And by that point I was furious. I’ll let the first example slide, as well as another example where a character says his ears are burning, because those are fairly common comments that could come from anywhere really, but the others…? Those scenes sounded like they were lifted straight out of the Megamind movie.

So I am extremely disappointed with DreamWorks right now. Extremely, massively disappointed, and angry. 

Megamind is not considered worthy of a sequel, but apparently it is okay to plagiarize. Yes, similar ideas and themes show up in different films in different ways, but this just seems like plagiarism to me.

Yer KILLIN’ me DreamWorks.

And I’m sorry if I have offended anyone who likes the Turbo movie, my kids liked it, but I think DW should not have reworked stuff from Megamind into another film like this. 

People didn’t like Megamind apparently so lets take lines and concepts from the movie and put em on snails

that will do better

right?

Jeffrey Katzenberg pisses me off because like… dude has the biggest balls on earth for owning the shit out of Disney and ragequitting in a firey ball of kickassery and I admire that so much. But then he canned Megamind 2 to make Turbo and fired a bunch of employees after ROTG while crying about the company’s lack of money and then months later tried to offer $75million for three more episodes of Breaking Bad.




cypeo asked:
hey there, I just saw your megamind post, and I loved it. I never noticed that Roxanne carried the story along. That's really cool, I'll have to go watch it again (for the 300th time haha) But I'm curious as to why you think Megamind is bi? It sounds like a great concept, and I could honestly believe it, but where do you draw your reasoning?

cypeo Thank you! :D I have a few theories and I feel like I already posted them, but I doubt I can find the post now. XD;

And I’m bisexual. Idk, it’s kind of like when someone has a gay-dar of sorts. There are some people I look at and my brain goes “hella bi. hella.”. Megamind fits that feeling for me very well.

He clearly has a HUGE fanboy obsession with Metro Man and spends the majority of his life obsessing over “defeating” him. It’s doubtful he actually had real intents to kill him. (“I meant to destroy you, but I didn’t think it would actually work.”) He’s in his mid-to-late 30s, maybe early 40s, so he’s been obsessing for a seriously long time. Roxanne is clearly in his interests as well, but at least in the beginning of the movie, she’s more of a tool for him to get Metro Man to come to him. He also reacts very similar to them both, in certain ways that my brain screams “oh, just do them both already!”

And I had many other theories but I lost them by now. I’m groggy and have to work tonight, sorry! dani-kin, help me out? Maybe?

but hey come off of Anon and join us! This fandom is a little small now but we are the most stubborn fandom ever! And totally chill with crackships and whatever. Most of us are adults and we try to keep the drama to a minimum. We’re in the “Megamind” tag here quite often.

Also thank you for your kind words! :3
