  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I think I'm allowed to both be happy for Endgame to hold the record AND think the re-issue was an unfortunate way to achieve the record that made them lose good faith. (which they have plenty of, so they can afford it, but still) Even now I still find their decision on clawing at the #1 a bit puzzling. But they have the best marketing team, so they must know what they're doing.
  9. Nah, diarrhea. Yet still probably doing better than your mouth. 😒 I never had a horse in this race, although I had some fun poking people that did. I said Endgame would pass Avatar ever since the re-issue was announced. I'm just stating things as I see them.
  10. It's too bad Endgame took the crown under such nasty terms. Forcefully dragging its legs through the finish line at any cost. Would've been way better if it just blew itself into #1 in three weeks like some predicted. At least some people can finally rest now.
  11. Everyone can have a different opinion but... *Inhales deeply* Being a child cyber soldier, losing your memory and left to rot, rebuilt by someone you end up calling your father by the end, waking up as a naive child, learning a sport, falling in love, recalling some of your previous memories and abilities through multiple life threatening situations, becoming a bounty hunter, wrecking basically all other hunters and then getting wrecked herself, literally; changing into a new body, getting a boyfriend, trying out for professional sports, finding out your boyfriend was king of a prick, forgiving and saving him, avenging him, yet ultimately failing to save him for good. All this while becoming more mentally mature and warrior-like each step of the way, and figuring out what her place in this world might be. From insignificant girl to potential liberator. Character development is what this has in spades. I wish I had 1/10 of hers in my entire life, I barely friggin changed (still a brat).
  12. I'll also throw my hat in for Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It's possibly the best all rounder for an extremely solid anime series, with a solid ending as well. Its only fault is that it's a "reboot", so it had to rush some of the early content from the manga as to not be too redundant with the first "incomplete" anime show of the series. It's one of those stories where you can tell the author knew exactly what story he wanted to tell, from start to finish. Everything clicks beautifully to great satisfaction.
  13. What the..? What's this peaceful discussion about anime and manga in the Fandom Wars thread? Does this confirm anime and manga are the salve that cures all that is wrong in the world? I think so. Go read some Berserk or Vinland Saga for some dark ages goodness.
