      Celebrate your strengths and improve past your weaknesses. Anything less is unhealthy. I say love yourself because God loves you.
      Humanity has the potential to become literal Gods. That is why our God made us, just trying to share his "wealth" of knowledge and power and make as many Gods in the process as are willing to live with that kind of stricture. Settling for anything less than that lofty goal is shooting yourself in the foot (no matter how easy it is at the time).
      Damnation is only falling short of godhood. And any choices that get in the way of the path to godhood are sins. Hell is still real enough, but is not permanent. God offers paradise to all who are willing to accept it, but if we don't let him pay the price for us, then we have to.
      Jesus loves everyone and has already guaranteed us immortality. Now lets take him up on the conditions of exaltation.

      Also God is married, and all that implies.

    I miss hand drawn animation. CGI is just lazy in my opinion. Yeah yeah. There's a lot of work that goes into it. But it's still lazy.

  • Scotland Dobson

    I'm glad that animation has become a respectable art form, but sincerely sad that 3d seems to have mostly killed 2d animation. With the exception of masterpieces like Into the Spiderverse, it seems like most 3d animation looks fundamentally the same. It's easily apparent, especially with fan crossovers. Fans have lumped Tangled, Brave, HttD, Frozen, and Guardians into one big universe, and, it kind of works. Because none of them really look all that different from one another. If Hiro Hamada showed up in Inside Out or Wreck it Ralph made an appearance in the emoji movie, nobody would bat an eye. That's not to say that those movies aren't all visually stunning, but there's a certain amount of stylistic freedom afforded by the 2d medium that 3d lacks because of all the extra technical complexity that goes along with it. You want to create a distinct, crazy visual style in 2d? Just draw it. In 3d? You're probably going to need to invent new modeling tools first, just to make it feasible. Proportions can be whatever you want them to be, squash and stretch is trivial, and every shading style under the sun is readily available to you with a pen and paper.

    Just look at the amazing things you see in two dimensions. You have everything from Cuphead's 1930s old style animation to visual masterpieces like Tarzan and Treasure Planet. I look to Japan where 2d is still the norm, and I'm completely blown away by things like the Ghibli films or Your Name. You can instantly tell the difference between the likes of Princess and the Frog and the Emperors New Groove, A Goofy movie is immediately recognizable as itself and nothing else. The Simpsons is unmistakable from a mile away and no one else looks like Spongebob. I knew the Legend of Korra was Avatar before I even knew the Legend of Korra was a thing. Kids Next Door is not Disney's Recess and Rick and Morty would never be mistaken for Adventure Time. As someone who does 3d art exclusively and Can Not Draw, I sincerely miss 2d animation in the feature film space. I love my 3d movies, my Spiderverses and Toy Story's and Brave's and Big Hero Sixes. But I wish that someone out there was still making a Road to Eldorado too. I missed the days where every year it seemed someone was pushing the envelope of what's possible with a pen and paper, I hope that I can see something like that come again in my lifetime.

    Why do my ears still hear "hyperbole hyperbole, hyperbole, HYPERbole, hyper BOLE, hyper bowly (that's the one pun in the whole video but better) and OH YEAH, so much useless marketing hyperbole that it MUST be amazing as hell. Shrek is great, but honest praise is better. How much they pay you to make it sound like the film industry owes it's life to Shrek? I mean DAMN you think Marvel wouldn't have succeeded without Shrek, you're on more drugs than me.

  • Kage Song
    Kage Song 23 days ago

    First to points absolute hyperbole garbage. Only still watching because I'm drunk. Shrek did not CEMENT 3D animation. That would happen without Shrek. And it SURE AS HELL did not create the modern movie trend. Look it's fine to praise an amazing movie for what it did, but you are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY like FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR A WWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY over selling this.

    All those "with the exception of Toy Story" disclaimers make me think that this video should probably have been "Why Toy Story is the most important franchise ever". Just saying.

    But jokes aside. Shrek 2 and 3 will forever be my favorite movies. The scene in Shrek 3 when all the princesses invade the castle to Barracuda is prefection. And In Shrek 2 when the escape the good fairy to Ever fallen in love is someone, like it's soo good.

    In my high school English class we had one unit where we focused on the art of parody. Are big examples where Shrek and the Canibury Tale. I think the fact that this movie had a whole unit in a high school based around it. Shows how important it is as a cultural icon.

    So Tony is no longer hosting/is Leaving Dorkly. Completely okay with that so you don't have to make his jokes, opinions and views a cartoon on the podcast or channel. I hope at least that is the explanation for the deriding. Regardless Carolyn brings the same energy to the job!
