Re: She-Hulk (Disney +, 2021)

Have to give Marvel props for going for solid actors for their heroes rather than who looks great in the costume.

Re: The Mandalorian (season 2 - spoilers)

The what's her name thing is nowhere near as complicated as folks are making out. Her employer and her co-workers were pretty clear they wanted her to stop tweeting about conspiracy theories and other stuff. She didn't, so she got fired. It's Disney, if you want to be a controversial figure, The Mou...

Re: Justice League Snyder Cut - March 18 2021

Given what we've all learned about Whedon recently I'm glad to see his contribution, such as it was to this movie, is being bulldozed and concreted over.

Re: Justice League Snyder Cut - March 18 2021

This reminds me how companies make video games where its unfinished when they ship it then you get a patch later that may fix it. So true. Given that this is mostly a graphics update and some bugs in the storyline being worked out am going to refer to it as Justice League 1.1. It also helps that th...

Re: Godzilla VS Kong

I thought it was great. I love this version of Kong, have since Skull Island. They've created this expressive, smart, dynamic monster and he's amazing to watch. The bit in GvK where Kong sits bolt upright Tyson Fury style, then pops his shoulder back in before going to fight MechaGodzilla is just br...

Re: Scarlett vs Disney

Was pretty clear Disney fucked it up when they started complaining about Scarlett being 'callous'. It's like, first off, these motherfuckers ran a themepark in the middle of a pandemic, the idea they can criticise anybody else for not taking the plague seriously is a joke. Secondly, contracts are ve...

Re: Only Fans banning sexually explicit content

This is a great thing, and here's why. When the religious whackjobs used Mastercard to go after PornHub, what did we hear about when it went down? We heard stories about child porn, revenge porn, women being abused and raped on the site. And a lot of people took this at face value, and a lot of peop...

Re: The Suicide Squad (2021)

I wasn't crazy about how they handled Harley Quinn. I think they made her way too uber-competent. Harley should succeed wildly a lot of the time, but she should also fail wildly a lot of the time, and it would be every bit as entertaining. She's a wild card, not an ace. She's like some kind of supe...

Re: Was Ruby Rose fired or forced off Batwoman

The stuff about how dangerous the set was seems to backed up by the number of injuries reported there, and the amount of pressure on Ruby despite the injuries she was carrying must have made it a properly hellish job. I'm more inclined to trust the word of an actor than production executives, becaus...

Puts me to mind of that point a few years ago when the price of oil dropped below zero. It's an interesting time for superhero stuff, the MCU has peaked, it will never surpass Infinity War.

Shades of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman from a decade ago. https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/adrianne-palicki-wonder-woman/ I managed to track that one down. It was Catwoman bad.

Holy shit you guys somebody made another good Predator movie! It's been so long since that happened I didn't really know what to think, but they did it.

Yeah but there's a real problem with racist fantasy fans who can believe a dragon but who become enraged at the sight of a black person with a sword. Best to ignore them.

Re: The Rings of Power

I watched the first episode. Thought it was brilliant. I could almost feel how impatient people would be seething as it plodded along. That's how you know the writers understood the source material. Tolkien's work moves slow. This moves slow. Also I love this version of Galadriel and Elrond. I don't...

The problem is that she's never been given space to earn the status she has in Endgame. In Endgame she's one of the most awesome characters in the whole thing and she's barely in it.
