  1. Honestly this movie begs for a VOD release. From a number’s perspective it seems fairly obvious it should go to streaming sooner rather than later, because it’s clear now that Mulan is profitable and Tenet is not. Every day that Tenet is not available on VOD is $millions lost due to waning interest. I would’ve paid $50+ at release to watch the VOD. Strike while the iron is hot because it’s cooling fast, Warner Bro. Also from a cinematic perspective, I would have personally enjoyed this film a lot more on VOD. I want to analyze the film. I find it exhausting to watch start to finish
  2. Film was so good it ripped the clothes right off my body. Now I need this to come out on streaming so I can watch it at half speed or something.
  3. What are you trying to say? Mrs. Doubtfire and The Fugitive were huge blockbusters in their time. Jurassic Park was simply on a different level. You'll understand when you're older and the industry is dominated by live-action-anime and you're explaining to kids that "no, actually superhero movies were really big in the 2010s!"
  4. @JamesCameronScholar One Punch Man (season 1 only) is another option. It doesn't tell a very good story, but season 1 is amusing as parody of shoenen, even if deep down it's just another shoenen but worse.
  5. The Fate series is great, but probably a step down from the best mangas/animes. They also lean a bit heavier on anime/manga conventions and aren't as good for people who are more casual fans or non-fans. I'm saying this because some time ago someone tried recommending me Fate and it was a complete dud at getting me (back) into anime. FMA:B is the show that finally pulled me into modern anime and made me want more. EDIT: PS @Nero you should check out Puella Magi Madoka Magica
  6. Try Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood or Steins;gate. Clean, tight stories that don't drag and have satisfying endings. If you only have time for one, go with Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, it's my overall go-to recommendation.
  7. It’s an acquired taste like a fine wine and gets better as it ages, it’s not “bad” where the artist just lacks drawing skill (like AoT manga) or gets lazy (like Bleach). The art also has some of the best facial expressions of any comic, ever, and the panels are creative and just get better over time. The anime has some weak outsourced art but not the Manga. I’d power through it, by the Alabaster Kingdom arc I’d grown to love the art, there’s nothing quite like it and you’re rewarded because the art just gets better and better (Oda has spent the majority of his career on OP).
  8. People who are fans of different things aren't trolls. Avatar is the #1 unadjusted movie of all time and is bound to have a fanbase on a box office tracking site.
  9. To me, Code Geass is like a parody of anime, I will never understand the absolute acclaim it gets, it’s like they threw everything that attracts people to anime in a blender and Code Geass is the result. It had some things that worked and many things that didn’t, especially the odd characterization and confusing fights. Most of the stuff that did work was a direct ripoff of Death Note. More power to you if you liked it, I’ll say at least it finished and tried to say something meaningful, and it has some good moments. It’s not the worst anime you could put as your favorite and I won’t hold it a
  10. I’m just mad that HxH kind of disappeared. Episode for episode I’d agree it punches above One Piece in world building but unfortunately it’s way shorter. I wanted more so badly. Should I pick up the manga? I plan on watching Naruto-kai at some point which is only 74 episodes or something. Basically all the fat edited out. @Nerfy you could try onepace.net which is basically One Piece minus all the fat/filler/flashbacks. The biggest barrier to entry IMO is the long Usopp introduction arc which is one of the show’s weakest arcs overall and introduces a wacky looking chara
  11. One Piece and Heroes Academy are not on the same level at all, One Piece is waaaaay better (and I like Heroes Academy). One Piece is a lot more like a Hunter x Hunter that just keeps going and going instead of disappearing after bugland. The anime actually has very little filler compared to stuff like Naruto (11% or so?), the real problem is it's a weekly anime that's not allowed to catch up to the manga so sometimes they overly stretch out panels from the manga or do long reaction shots (or long episode recaps but fortunately you can skip those). The weakest arcs are mostly near the beginning
  12. Obviously the MCU as a whole is totally dominant but Endgame as a world #1 is kind of a weak champ comparatively speaking. It makes sense it would only just barely get there considering it’s part of a long running franchise which slowly aggregates more fans. Maybe another Marvel movie breaks $3B if they keep things up and then the chart doesn’t look so lopsided.
  13. You didn’t need to say it twice. It’s my opinion based on facts. Maybe you have some alternative facts? Right, Endgame is missing about $30-40M from its total. Won’t change much though. It’s #1 versus that year’s top ten to see the level of dominance on display. Classic technique used in sports when fans get into an argument about which player from which era was more dominant. Use the stats from their era and see how they fared vs contemporary competition. I’m seeing exactly the results I expected although I expect Endgame to land closer to Jurassic Park after the year is done
  14. Jim Gang has retreated into our 4K HDR rerender re-release bunker a long time ago, let the chips fall where they may on this trifling difference between the #1 and #2
