I liked it also for trying to be a little different and not being another an out-and-out remake of the classic series, but I recognize that they botched the execution with bad writing and two bland leads that had zero on-screen chemistry. On the other hand, I really loved the casting of Endora and Uncle Arthur and I… Read more
It was on life support after Gillian Anderson left, and Orlando Jones getting screwed over killed it for me. Good riddance.
I agree. Unlike He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, I think Thundercats has amazing potential as a film series, and I’m hoping this director succeeds in bringing his vision to the big screen. If he can somehow avoid the Cats uncanny valley issues it could be on the level of Transformers in terms of nostalgic box… Read more
This price increase doesn’t bother me. As others have mentioned, there is more than enough content on D+ to still make it a good value. My price tolerance for streaming services is generally at the $10/month mark. Above that I evaluate regularly whether the service is worth it against my overall cable/streaming budget.… Read more
I would have preferred keeping Crudup and replacing Miller, but I know that’s just me.
It’s worth noting that Disney+ also has a pretty good featurette series called Marvel Studios: Legends meant as a refresher for each of the main characters in the article (as well as Wanda/Scarlet Witch and Vision) consisting of clips from the movies.
People need to get past the old way of thinking about TV shows. Streaming services are an entirely different model, and I think Marvel Studios has the right idea in not committing to continuous runs of any series, but going with limited-series formats that allow minor characters who couldn’t carry a theatrical movie… Read more
Which is why she should have sought out Dr. Strange. I know she didn’t spend a lot of time with him in Endgame, but as a “heroic” magic user, he should have been her first option. The problem is she is still very depressed and instead chose to go into isolation to deal with her pain and to avoid human judgment, which… Read more
Yes, you’re right, her exact quote was “they’ll never know what you sacrificed for them” which IMO is a dumb, tone deaf thing to say in light of what she put the town through (even Wanda acknowledged it wouldn’t change their opinions). Saying goodbye to Vision was a good step, but Wanda still needs grief counseling in… Read more
The casual way Monica let Wanda off with an “I feel your pain” sendoff really rubbed me the wrong way. This woman turned an entire town of innocent people into her personal marionette show - which frankly makes her a bigger villain than Agnes/Agatha - and Monica just let her fly off like it was perfectly okay. I get… Read more
I’m with you!
I heard that too, and what I took from it was EP-Pietro was speaking of *his* death through Wanda’s eyes, through her grief. She probably feels ATJ-Pietro’s death to have been senseless despite knowing in her mind that it was a noble act. Like many people in grief do over losing a loved one, her pain prevents her… Read more
When it comes to genre fiction shows like this, I’d much rather have a one-and-done series of epic quality that will always be fondly remembered, especially if that’s what the creators intended. That’s why I really don’t want a Watchmen season 2. In spite of having a good story and a great cast, I don’t have the same… Read more
EXACTLY! Marvel’s done this before with Captain America: The First Avenger. They are telling the hardcore comic fans who want rigidly accurate comic book costumes that many of their characters would look absolutely stupid in real life if they did that. That’s also why Fox wisely avoided ever putting Jackman in the… Read more
Since its a guy, I’m expecting either Reed Richards or Adam Brashear.
I always took it as the original artist trying to convey his hair being stuck with a windswept look resulting from the high speeds that he runs, but that later artists adopted the horns look to convey his slightly villainous nature.
As “horrific” as this scene was, it’s still a Disney PG-13 snapshot compared to the absolute rated “R” shitshow that might have resulted if this happened in real life.
They timed it perfectly. My wife, who enjoys Marvel movies almost as much as I do, wasn’t impressed by the sitcom approach and went to sleep on the 3rd episode out of boredom. This episode might get her interested again.
I also think there is something up with Dottie. In fact, given that she wasn’t on the board has convinced me we are getting an intentional misdirect to focus on Agnes. The real puppet master pulling strings from behind the curtain might be “Dottie”.
