Avengers: End Game

Man, what a bummer. I got pretty stoked about the Ronin/Hawkeye bit, and then sad that Cap shaved.



(I still don't care about crossover events, and still think it's silly how dramatic they're making it all seem when literally none of it means anything. But I suppose at least with Endgame, the

Stan Lee dead at 95

Thing about Stan Lee was his capacity to change. Dude was always a little full of himself, and that sometimes made him unlikeable. When he finally did start giving Steve Ditko proper credit for the creation of Spider-man, which wasn't something he always did, he became infinitely more likeable. I al

Yeah. They still do some theatrical stuff. I saw a RiffTrax Starship Troopers show sometime last year, I think it was? It's pretty good stuff!

I am very familiar, in fact! They basically caused me to stop working on TWO separate essays I was working on. The first was an essay about how misogynistic the Big Bang Theory is and why I fucking hate it for that (among many other) reasons. They've done at least two episodes primarily on it, while

Daredevil Season 3

Watched a few episodes. Outside Jessica Jones, which I liked for its themes and break from the traditional narrative structure, I think I just find Marvel Netflix boring slogs. Daredevil is clearly the quality superhero show for them, but I still just find it a little too heavy handed and long-winde

Sorry To Bother You (2018)

I loved the film, but I also really love Boots Riley. Was unlikely I wouldn't. It's hardly a perfect film. The stuff with Tessa Thompson and Steve Yeun kind of went nowhere and felt like it was maybe left in from a previous draft of the script, for example. And for as satirical and funny as it is, i

Sorry To Bother You (2018)

I don't think the advertising was dishonest. It focused primarily one depicting the general tone of the film rather than giving away much of the specifics. And thank god for that, because what is in it is...well...I really just don't want to say anything more, to be honest. This is definitely one of

Harry Potter marathon?

The primary issue I have is with what happens *after* we all learn about it. I don't blame anyone for still loving Pirates of Caribbean, if that were their favorite movie way back when. But he should not still be getting these roles *at this point.* Just like Kevin Spacey shouldn't be getting those

Harry Potter marathon?

Certainly true, and a thing we all have to address regarding our own consumption of art. The difference in this particular case is that I went out to see Baby Driver despite Kevin Spacey because his abuse hadn't been public knowledge yet. I actually haven't watched the film since. Plus, Spacey hasn'

Harry Potter marathon?

I don't have many thoughts on Depp as an actor. Kind of over his schtick. I'm more over constantly giving that wife-beating shithead roles in major motion pictures. There are so many better actors, or of equal quality, who do not have that history hanging over them.

Harry Potter marathon?

I'm always game to re-watch those movies. They are so much better than they have any right being, really. I quite enjoy them.

That said, I am most likely going to skip Fantastic Beasts 2. I really loved the first one...until they replaced Colin Farrell with Johnny Depp. I'm not terribly keen on

Venom (2018)

Sometimes it is hard to get through a movie when the primary thought going into it is, "Why is this a thing?" Sony's insistence on creating a series of films based on Spider-man's rogues gallery is, well, strange to say the least. Venom makes for an especially odd choice to kick things off. For star

The Mandalorian first image (Star Wars TV series)

In love with their directors line-up. And I don't hate the concept. Still kind of annoyed that Disney's purchasing of culture is about to pay off with their own streaming service, but this show is at least appearing to shape up nicely.

1984

I was definitely one of those "I like 1984, but Brave New World is better" kids in high school.

I'm never sure how to feel about the film adaptation, though.

Scores and Soundtracks

Ok. There's just too many to whittle down! And my musical taste is sort of all over the place. A few that I just adore and often play at work:

From Life is Strange, "Max and Chloe." Jonathan Morali's credits music perfectly captures the emotional feeling of the entire game, and I love it just so

I have been watch Yu Yu Hakusho lately

I think this is my favorite anime show. It just hits all the right beats for me. I even love the final arc, although it does appear to get rushed pretty bad. But I really liked it. I've watched a fair bit recently, too, and it still holds up to me.

It's funny given that Toonami used to just air

Sorry! I keep meaning to post my favorites, but it's soooo hard to whittle it down to just a handful. I will post some soon!

I have an important opinion!

I really liked Season 7, actually. It's not great, but I enjoyed what they did. It was better than the extra year of Scrubs after it reached its conclusion in season 8. But I also realize that I love Parks & Rec so much that they have to try really hard to get me to not like it. Only thing I have a

No, absolutely go for it. I was planning to throw some out there, too. (Was meaning to after I mentioned Disasterpeace's score for It Follows and wanted to mention his score for Fez, but got a bit side tracked. This conversation seems like it will be exhausted pretty shortly. So the video game score

Things I require:

Range of emotions and choices where consequences follow.
