This is an image about the end of the series and eventually the subject of the movie came up (as it often does when discussing the end of G4). Someone complained that Lionsgate refused to release the 3D version of the movie (3D as in 3D glasses not CGI) and this lead to a conversation of 3D in movies.

Hey y'all, just popping in to say that as interesting as this conversation about movie franchises and longevity is, it's not related to this image. Feel free to carry on this discussion in our forums. Thanks!

That's because of a good director's (Travis Knight) involvement on Bumblebee. Same goes for John Krasinski on A Quiet Place.

Most of the Bay-produced and Platinum Dunes produced films got bad to mediocre directors from Jonathan Liebesman and Marcus Nispel to Dave Green and James DeMonaco.

I remember someone making the claim that he still deserves the blame because he was the boss's boss.(it can go the other way as well Tim Burton was also an executive producer little involvement with the nightmare before Christmas)
I also don't recall anyone getting upset over Bay being bumblebee's producer

It's not about the 3D, even though I did made it all about it just because of how IMDb claimed about the MLP film.

If that's the case, how can MLP survive as a film franchise financially the same way it did as a television series? The MLP film has no sequels now that Hasbro cancelled one, and people want MLP (as a movie, which the 2021 movie is now a reboot disguised as a "standalone" movie) to have a hard reboot with no charm that is as good as FiM. And worst of all, no Tara Strong.

It is not as well known as Marvel and the Simpsons and SpongeBob.

I understand that, but 3D won't fix that. Most professional film critics aren't bronies, so they don't understand the series, the characters, and such.
Even the G.I. Joe movie is rather confusing even if you know the mythos & different canons the franchise has had. (At least they made Destro Scottish like he originally was.)

@Background Pony #8B05
I doubt that, as there's no proof of Nintendo doing that, and remaking old obscure games from a failed console is probably not a huge priority for them. In fact, the Wario Land series has been kinda dormant sense "Wario Land Shake-it" (for Wii/WiiU) kinda failed in sales… (Luckily, the Virtual Console sales of the Gameboy WL games has been good, so maybe they'll revive the series.)
Admittedly, I wouldn't mind a rerelease of Wario Land VB though.

@Background Pony #8B05
While I loved the 3D on the 3DS, I think the technology for it just hasn't been perfected for the effect yet. Same goes for theatrical 3D.
Background Pony #B9EB
@northern haste

I know that people consider wearing 3D glasses to be lame (I definitely don't) but I wish the 3DS had used 3D glasses since the effect is often broken, even with the improvements for New 3DS.

But all 3D technology, and virtual reality as well, tells people to take a break (as well as that warning that those under 7 shouldn't use it). So that part doesn't mean anything.

Hopefully that new 3D technology for the sequel to Avatar revitalizes the industry.

I really hope what I heard about it being no glasses 3d is not true. that sounds like a disaster waiting to happen even 3DS games told players to take a break every now and then
Background Pony #B9EB
@northern haste

I wonder if it's possible they really were working on a remake of Virtual Wario Land for the 3DS but cancelled it. Or it may also surface on the Switch (even though it unfortunately won't have the 3D then).

My point still still stands as there are still many 2D movies that do well.
And how do you know most of the viewers whom watched those movies watched those movies in 3D? Everyone I've known only watched the 2D versions, even those whom saw Endgame.
3D is not what made those movies successful, (and some get kinda dizzy trying to watch those) and even then some are divided on the new Lion King, or prefer the original one.

I remember years ago, Hasbro speculated that G4 MLP was only going to last for the rest of the decade, it was never planned originally to go this long, or last past this decade, so 9 seasons is still impressive.

Also, I hate to say it, but there are very few "critically redeeming sequels" out there… (In fact, sequels are oftentimes rarely considered improvements.) So making one for MLP wouldn't matter.
The TMNT "Out of the Shadows" sequel (despite it's flaws) was a much better movie then the previous TMNT movie, but it actually did worse then the previous one, because it couldn't escape the stigma/disapointment the previous movie had, or because people didn't like the designs, (even though they're slightly improved) and because Michael Bay was a producer. (But barely involved in it, so that was very unjustified.)

@Background Pony #8B05
Doesn't sound true, as the Gameboy Color version of "Link's Awakening" was already available on 3DS via Eshop.
Background Pony #B9EB
3D movies became really popular popular with Avatar but unfortunately they aren't doing so good these days. That's why at first Disney was rereleasing their classic movies in 3D but eventually stopped completely. You can't even find a movie as popular as Avengers Infinity War on Blu-Ray 3D without having to import it from another country.

Hopefully that new 3D technology for the sequel to Avatar revitalizes the industry.

Actually I believe the Aladdin remake did well at the box office but when I saw a 3d showing it was just me and my sister in the theatre
@Background Pony #8B05
To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if the links Awakening remake started out on the 3ds.Nintendo obviously don't see a point in keeping the 3ds going with switch
Background Pony #B9EB
@Beau Skunky

Something that annoyed me is both Virtual Wario Land and Link's Awakening were rumored to be remade for the 3DS. The latter happened on the Switch instead while it seems the former wasn't true.

Maybe the Joker succeeded because of being a comic book movie or the controversy gave it a shitload of attention. The former applies also to Deadpool and Logan, which succeeded more than Hellboy.

Besides, if 3D wasn't important, why did Avengers Endgame surpassed Avatar? Why did The Lion King remake reached a billion? Why did Spider-Verse become a box office hit (even if it underperformed)?

Also, i know Hasbro didn't lose faith on the franchise, but they're losing faith on G4 since they pulled the plug on the show. Now we won't be able to have a critically redeeming sequel so Hasbro won't be the laughing stock of the film industry.

At least for now, Bumblebee got the praise it deserve but soon or later when Snake Eyes drops, Hasbro will be once again the laughing stock if it gets bad reviews.

The iron giant is also considered a classic but that bombed as well. Because Warner Brothers cut all marketing because they was leaving the animation industry. both bumblebee and spider-verse were well received but the box office results were not great

I haven't seen it, but as you said it was very poorly advertised, to the point, I forgot a new Power Rangers existed.

The new Hellboy caught flack before it even released, mostly 'cause fans didn't like the new actor, and such, so it may of been a decent movie for all we know. Even some decent movies bomb.
Disney's "Fantasia" bombed, but nowadays it's considered an animated masterpiece.
