Working the Apex Legends Global Series today with some expanded responsibilities behind the scenes. I'm keeping up (some of what I'm tasked with is brand new to me as an editor) but man, I'm gonna need a nice shower and an evening nap after this!

I didn’t like them as a young kid when I didn’t know anything about music, but as an adult who does, I fall into so many rabbit holes of the music video segments.

I’m excited for the movie library. Paramount is not a movie juggernaut today, but they have an insane vault of classic movies they can offer in the present and future (if they have any of their classics tied up in other deals for now).

I feel like it’s a music licensing thing for sure. There’s a reason any release of Beavis and Butt-head is just the story bits but does not include the music video commentary interludes.

You know what was an awesome game 20ish years ago? Gauntlet Legends. I shudder at how much I spent on my character at the arcade cabinet before the home releases

This is actually why I liked Wandavision so much and why such a series was needed (esp. if Wanda will be a central character in Dr. Strange 2). Prior to the series, both Wanda and her relationship with Vis got a really short shrift in the movies. Watching the series finally filled in the questions I had about both Read more

I was just happy to see Wanda’s “quick-travel sneak-up and mind warp” move from Age of Ultron pop up again, in addition to her Dr. Strange-ish abilities.

Yeah, fully agreed about limited series. It allows them to continue to push the characters in further directions with movies or other characters’ series than just “here’s another 9 episodes of Wanda just because this is how TV works”. I like the idea of an anthology of side stories to complement the MCU rather trying Read more

Also, knowing how much oversight Feige wields, I doubt he’s gonna fold the Fox X-Men series, with its extremely spotty record, including ending on two ill-received mainline team movies, into his meticulously crafted MCU. He’s gonna do it his way and why not? The grandfathered example of course is Deadpool, which by Read more

Yep. I don't think it was intended as anything further than "newly-powered hero saves kids with new powers"

The other night, I didnt turn the TV off and I woke up around 2am and there’s a young Gina Rodriguez popping up in one single scene playing the sister of the victim.

I liked Kevin Smith’s story about wanting to be on Law and Order, and L&O asked if he wanted to play the killer (because that’s what the big stars do) and he said instead of that (because obviously he would be the killer), he wanted to be “the guy that leads them to the guy that leads them to the guy”.

Yeah, I liked it because it was L&O in name only, and it was about Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe basically being Holmes and Watson within the parameters of a L&O structure. To that end, I really enjoyed it.

And I think it’s important to separate what a story is doing from one’s own pre-written headcanon. I understand why Mark Hamill was not happy with the portrayal of Luke in “The Last Jedi” but I found the arc Rian wrote to be far more powerful and elegant for the character. It tapped into all the human flaws Luke

yep, I see the nice synergy coming with Wanda being key to the incoming battle between Strange and Mordo. And I can’t wait!

Absolutely. The movies, frankly, have not cared about Wanda, or her relationship with Vision. It’s a long-overdue masterstroke to bring TV into the proper Marvel Studios fold for reasons and shows just like this: *NOW* I understand and care about who and why Wanda is. Her attraction to Vision and vice versa stemming fr Read more
