  1. Considering Harley Queen is known as Joker's sidekick you'd imagine the very recent success of "The Joker" would pike GA's interest for a Harley led movie. GA rarely looks closely on whether there's actual continuity or not, and Marvel set expectations. Granted, if that were/is to be the case you'd find its legs to be unpredictable. The Joker shocked expectations for the better, and this one will..? Should be interesting to follow.
  2. Say what you will about the Snyder Cut guys, but I think it's great that other fans are also starting to make their voices heard like this: They're donating everything past the $1,810 mark. Insignificant or not, at the very least there's always a great cause that benefits from it.
  3. They've already blamed TLJ having a bad rep almost entirely on "trolls". So, yes. Hard to switch a cemented narrative and suddenly say "trolls" had a point about TLJ leaving the plot dead in the water.
  4. What spoilers can do to you. I avoided all TLJ spoilers, my reaction in TLJ when Luke threw away his lightsaber: - a second of laughter; - about two seconds of massive confusion as my brain tries to process why he'd ever do that. - no time to think, let it go for now. It was enough for me to realize I was in for a strange ride. Spoilers give you too much time to dissect plot holes, out of character moments, logical fallacies, etc. Some people like to think about these things as they watch the movie, others are more focused on the tasty popcorn. It is what it is. Sometimes you're too busy being pleasured to question anything. I mean..! Being fan-serviced.
  5. It'll still make bank, that's still not questioned. Probably worth a watch even if just to enjoy the trainwreck and be part of the discussion. But if THAT bad it might borrow its legs from baby Yoda. RIP repeat viewings.
  6. So it's true... I wasn't just getting hit with a crapload of bad reactions by coincidence. 😥 I can't believe it's bad enough that even people that tend to side with Disney are trashing this. On the plus side, they're giving critics a nice card to use whenever they get called Disney shills in the future.
  7. Looks like the "#1 movie had no cultural impact or is memorable" disease is starting to kick in earlier than I calculated. Interestingly it's very infectious since it can spread through an entire franchise.
  8. I gave a lot of credit to Disney when they bit the bullet to bring Spider-Man into the MCU by agreeing to a barely profitable deal on their end. It really felt like something done "for the fans". Then they took that bullet out of their mouths, ran it through their groin and tried to shove it in Sony's mouth, and Sony spat it out. And now the fans are left biting on that spit slathered, grimy, bullet. Disgusting.
  9. RR's Netflix project was already in the table before Alita came out. So nothing changed, really. They have to keep themselves busy, same with Rosa Salazar and Amazon's Undone. The sequel being a thing or not, it'd likely still take a year at the very least to get some kind of script ready. And R.R. isn't going to write it. They have idle time. And if they somehow dare/manage to greenlight a trilogy it'd take even longer to prep. And btw, Rosa's Undone is looking pretty good and coming out next month. After "The Boys" Amazon might just keep raising the bar.
  10. I'm seeing some reporters finally waking up to how downright insane the mainstream fandom of the MCU can get. They're all up with pitchforks and torches against Sony because they're not taking a deal that downright sucks for them. "Disney can do no wrong" I guess. It almost makes me sympathize with the extreme Disney haters. Once in a while, they are kinda right.
  11. This is the one thing that irks me about it. Portman didn't really seem to like playing Jane Foster and it showed, so it's hard for me to be all happiness and rainbows about her taking over Mighty Thor. The silver lining is that she'll probably not phone it in now that she has a juicier role. I think she had become unhappy with the role because of a directorial change? Can't remember. To anyone with two brain cells to rub together, it was clear enough that her character could become Mighty Thor eventually, but she sure didn't seem to act like she'd be returning.
  12. Oh no, I'm not saying "there is something newly slimy or underhanded". It's business as usual, as you say, just a tad more blatant and transparent than I've gotten used to. Though I don't know why people insist to bring up Avatar's re-release so often for comparison when it had an entirely different context and purpose.
  13. What makes you think Disney isn't developing an AI to absorb James Cameron's essence to make Avatars until the end of time? Geniuses often prophesize their fate and that of their legacy in their own work.
