: Now, do you have any questions? Tamama
: I don't know... this sounds a lot like that Wet-traman operation from the other day... (Keroro gets an weird look on his face and pauses whilst an image of Wet-traman appears in the background) Keroro
: Okay!! Men... let's go recruit some beasts!!... Tamama
: I knew it... he's going to pretend it didn't happen...

At least we can live with the comfort that, someday, our sun will swell into a red giant and suck up the earth and burn it into a crisp. I mean, humanity will be gone, and every possible accomplishment of humanity will be burned into an ash in a millisecond but, y'know, at least the Star Wars
prequels will be gone.
That War of the Daleks
is a mind-wrenchingly awful book at least mostly goes without saying... What’s surprising and relatively transformative, though, is that it was rejected almost completely. Essentially nobody took it seriously. Sure, lots of people rejected previous bits of Doctor Who
in the Wilderness Years
, but this was basically the first time that a book had the unanimous response of 'thanks but no thanks.' It wasn’t some active campaign or a conscious, authoritative decision or anything like that. It was just a moment where the breaking point of Doctor Who
fandom became clear. This was a bridge too far.
Official license and BBC logo on the book or not, this was clearly not canon.
They told us that Returns
just skipped over Superman III
, but I prefer to think of it as the movie that would’ve happened if Superman never got over being a douchebag in this one.
Which brings us to the Karate Kid
trilogy. Sure, there was allegedly a fourth installment ("The Next Karate Kid," featuring Hillary Swank as Mr. Miyagi's new student), but as far as I'm concerned, that movie never happened. You hear me? Just like "Rocky V
," "Another Forty Eight Hours
," "Caddyshack II
," "Another Midnight Run
2," "Made," "Slap Shot
II: Breaking the Ice," the final season of "90210
" and everything else, "The Next Karate Kid
" never happened.
Okay, that's the Rocky
giftset. That's going to be $49.99. Sports Guy:
Uh... we have a question. Cashier:
Sure. Sports Guy:
I don't want to pay for Rocky V
. I like to pretend that Rocky V
…watching it actually makes me cringe. I feel like I have to turn the volume down and face the TV toward the wall and watch it in a dark corner of somewhere where nobody will ever know. It just leaves you with a bad, bad feeling, like this movie should not exist.
Listen, Lunchbox, I don't expect you to understand it, so let me give it to you like this: Sonic Heroes
happened. Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
happened. (Mark goes on to list off dozens of Sonic games, including the less popular ones, and stating how they all "happened".)
THAT— Sage: (Gesturing to the movie)
DIDN'T HAPPEN! Sage:
So Sonic fans handled this... through denial. Mark:
It was either living a lie or booze.
This film is such a misstep all around that you can pick it up and remove it from the franchise without consequence. Moving from 4
without 5 still flows naturally. In fact, it arguably works better to ignore it altogether, since 6 carries on the themes of the previous trilogy, and it removes a number of things that contradict established Trek lore, and/or common sense.
And if you happen to be a young one not having seen [the Indiana Jones
movies] yet, then just give up on this video and go watch them right now, I authorize you, it's really one of the best ever trilogy of cinema. Seb: Quad
(JdG fires a hand cannon
You'll have to cut my balls with rusty shears drenched in vinegar
before I'd admit that the fourth movie
is part of the saga!
