Wrapped up Falcon and WS. It was alright honestly. I liked it enough to watch season 2, but it pretty average overall.


The Loki trailer was sweet though. But i'm a sucker for anything Owen Wilson though, and he seems perfect in that role.

Next up for Disney, Dancing with the Stars - Ewok Version.


Would watch.
Twice if the Ewoks kept trying to eat their professional dance partners.

I've decided that watching ALL the Marvel movies is just too daunting. So which ones are essential to watch prior to Avengers Infinity War and Avengers End Game? The movies that are most tied into and have plot threads leading up to the finale of those films?

This is going to be available on Hulu at the end of this month, so not sure if it is official MCU. Reminds me of something that would air on Adult Swim.

That dude is Russell and Hawn's son? Shit. He lucked out in the looks department. And the charisma department.


When he was yelling in the last episode he sounded EXACTLY like his dad yelling. It was eerie.



My wife and I commented the exact same thing! I also think his walk looks very similar to Kurt's. There was a scene where John Walker is walking away (down a hallway, maybe?) and I had a vision of Snake Plisken walking...


Iím rewatching Stargate and they are pretty much copies.

Just watched the first half of episode 1. Ehhh, I don't think it's particularly good.

Patton Oswalt does the voice. I know he has some clout in the Marvel world. He appeared regularly in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and I believe he was in some of the theatrical movies (playing the same character, not sure though). And he is unabashedly nerdy about Marvel, and things nerdy in general. So, not knowing anything about this, I thought maybe with him attached it would have some level of quality. From the trailer it definitely looked like something that some people would love and others, most, would probably not be in to.

Checked out the IMDB, it does have some voice actors who have had their nerd credentials card punched (a few times for some of them).

- Nathan Fillion

- Whoopi Goldberg

- Jon Hamm

- Bill Hader

Any thoughts on the Eternals trailer?

From a visual standpoint what bothers me the most is the muted colour palette and the underexposed look.

I liked it a lot.

Actually, the colour palette feels very much like a Chloe Zhao thing...like you could exchange shots from this with NOMADLAND and I would not notice.

That said, I like that aspect because it's trying to tell a new story in the MCU and the visual storytelling cues on display are a part of that newness. It helps this feel like what it is, which is a "Here's the history of the world in the MCU as it ACTUALLY was and not quite as you had learned it."

It's a secret history movie (almost Ancient Aliens?)...and as such it has the palette of a history documentary.

In terms of substance, I think the trailer is rather cagey (a good thing imo). Barry Keoghan is good casting for someone who can be unassuming at first glance but rather dangerous under the surface. I am a little scared this might be MCU's Justice League though, if it gets stuck in demigod mode.
On the visual front I tend to agree with QT, it's Zhao's touch and I tend to like that kind of thing (at least in dramas). But I can see why folks who were excited for more Jack Kirby to be injected into the MCU would be disappointed, as this kinda goes in the opposite direction. And I thought Captain Marvel had some visual issues (much too dark aboard the ship, for one), so it's not impossible for Marvel to screw that up where it counts, even in more recent stuff. But like I said, I think the trailer is being cagey and wouldn't be surprised if like 90% of those shots are from the first 30-40 minutes.

They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Yes, I know the drab look is part of Chloe Zhao's style, but then again, why go through all the trouble of outfitting all these actors with colourful costumes only to dial desaturate the colours in post-production?

So it sounds like Disney is pissed and making waves because Taika Waititi is in a seeming Throuple/polyamorous relationship with Rita Ora and Tessa Thompson, and some photographs arose of them snuggling and kissing (which are beyond tame).

You know every time I think that Disney left their "we must be PURITANICALLY wholesome with no quarter!" in the past, they do something like this and try to make a big deal of a directors chosen social life which harms no one.

Like fuck off Disney.

Ehh, if I was in charge of the management of a gigantic multi billion dollar company, who's employees are a part of a gigantic multi billion dollar movie franchise, I'd probably be a wearisome of them fucking around off screen in a love triangle too. There's a reason why work places discourage inter-office relationships.

Well

1. Rita Ora does not work for Disney that I'm aware of.
2. Love triangle is wrong, they are seemingly a consensual Throuple.
3. Why does what the three of them do on their own Time matter to anyone, let alone Disney?

"inter-office relationships" is really reaching when it's a film director and one of his stars (who is not shooting the film right now anyways) and his other girlfriend who is not employed by them.

If I had MeToo scandals as the biggest nightmare for my multi million dollar production schedules, I'd prefer if all my employees were celibate. And lived in shack in the woods.

'Christian parents'/'family values' orgs looking for reasons to freak out and start talking shite about the Mouse and telling their followers not to spend dollars on movies, merch, parks, etc and boycott anyone carrying them.

To what extent are you comfortable with your employer telling you what you can't do in your life?
