  1. I need more Yelena in my life. Anyone know a Marvel Exec? Maybe you’re pitching a project? I dunno, someone throw out that Yelena Belova audio books would be big sellers. I mean, I assume. It’s prolly fact tho. Not even books about Yelena Belova. Just like Yelena Belova reading a book out loud. Not like even straight reading it either, like feel free to side bar and mention when the book is ridiculous. Just me? ”War and Peace. No. No, I need that not in my life. Winnie the Pooh I can do. Eeyore I like very much.”
  2. Well, I think attributing episodic to the Mandalorian is a li’l bit of a stretch. At the very least when contrasted to the reference of the original series Star Trek. But I hear ya.
  3. Finch is Apple TV’s film starring Tom Hanks. Would Recommend. It’s a beautiful science fiction story. Whatever algorithm has been suggesting films to me this week has really knocked it out of the park. Finch capped a three film watch for me; Hunt for the Wilder People, St. Vincent, and Finch. All three were good watches, fine human stories all in their own rights. Well, anywho, back to being Dad… the kids just got home. It’s a half day at school.
  4. Well obviously, y’all. The execution of getting an audience “up to speed” is the thing, and then whether whatever you did to get them up to speed hurts the payoff you’re hoping they get from your story etc. I don’t envy the writers here, for sure. And to be honest, I’m getting tired of long form story telling in everything from Marvel to Star Wars to Star Trek to James Bond of all things. Maybe it’s nostalgia, but I remember the days… well the nights… of Nick at Night and watching whatever original Star Trek episode was airing and never once feeling like I missed something.
  5. The MCU is not nor has it ever been short form, to be fair. Every film has led to the next, they are just also using episodic television to advance plots now. So in short: yes I suppose it would be annoying, is annoying even. I feel that. But it is what it is. lol Might as well be mad at a series of books for expecting you to have read an earlier one. Also sorry to bring more annoyances to your attention, but if you haven’t seen the other MCU Disney+ shows you will be lost regarding characters like Hawkeye, Loki, Falcon, and Bucky as they are all no where near the characters the
  6. I would imagine skipping WandaVision, at least knowing nothing of it, would put a viewer into an awkward position going into this film. The last anyone saw of Wanda, film wise, was fighting Thanos. She isn’t remotely that character anymore.
  7. Enjoyed the trailer. Was told it had a No Way Home spoiler in it, oh well. Umm… probably best not to point it out though whatever it is. As for X-Universe in MCU: Just give me Deadpool, and let him be aware of differences so he can make fourth wall jokes. Otherwise if Wolverine is someone else, fine, but I do wish we could see Hugh and Reynolds buddy up to contrast the stink of Origins.
  8. This text thing is a fear I have, irrational for me as I have only been with my wife, but the entire wrong person text thing is definitely like in the doom and fear area of my brain. Admittedly a fear of both sending and being on the receiving end. Just something like, “Loved yesterday, can’t wait until next week.” Although, text speak for that is probably emoji, not that I’d know as I am that person that types full sentences and even paragraphs in texts. Anyway, there’s only one explanation for a text bomb like the one I fear, or at least very little wiggle room for that one. That’d just be s
  9. Re: Shoes When in Rome… If someone says take them off or it is a known custom (such as in Japan), off they come. In my house, if you’re hanging out for an extended time, get comfy, take your shoes off if you want. Sorta really only mandatory for kids, as they have no sense of anything they are doing for the most part. Re: Animal Probably only some small animal, like an ant. ;-) Never thought about it, don’t see the need to plan for it. Might regret that during the inevitable animal uprising, or something.
  10. Be careful putting on a Jazz playlist via Spotify while taking a candlelit bubble bath. The tone can change from C’est si Bon to noir hopeless right quick. Fuchme, Spotify, all harshing my mellow. Edit: Well shit, I should have checked the page before posting. Sincere Sorry. [prayer hands]
  11. I really thought “Star Wars, Wars never change” was witty. I almost Chrysippused over it when I wrote it. I’d pay, probably nothing actually, to hear Ron Perlman say it. Oh well.
  12. I, prolly others as well, mentioned the Mando armor thing in the Mando thread. I was like… maybe stop making armor and make your ships out of it. I, prolly others as well, also mentioned that Grogu is a way for Disney to setup another trilogy of films. Grogu will go missing or be sent away at some point, away from Mando and Luke or at the very least away from Luke and all his Jedi hopefuls. Then set up a new trilogy like three hundred years past “Rey and the Destruction of a Mythos”. Grogu will be a frog leaping, spinning, force using cool guy prolly voiced by Michael Peña who gets to con
  13. Re: point of the show My youngest kids like the Disney+ Star Wars shows. Perhaps many of us, if we took a moment to consider ourselves, might find we have become old and don’t actually crave these things as we once did, that we watch out of habit, for what once was, rather than real driving interest. Or maybe it’s less than many, maybe it’s just me projecting. lol
  14. I think Luke still wearing the glove is a kink thing, he likes how it feels or something something haha.
  15. I totally forgot JJ had more than one season. After Defenders I just gave up on the shows. lol
