  1. Overall, I enjoyed the first episode of Picard. They did a wonderful job tying the destruction of Romulus into core continuity, and Stewart acted his heart out when Picard's pent-up rage was exposed during the news broadcast. I do have one nitpick, though:
  2. Ant-Man. Deadpool is really fun, but structurally it has issues. It takes 40 minutes to get off the bridge due to all of the flashbacks.
  3. Superman #19: Kinda not sure I believe Perry White's reaction here. Now that everyone knows Clark Kent is Superman, so many of Lois and Clark's Daily Planet stories would be called into question. But whatever, it's an okay issue.
  4. The cocaine power-up is hilarious.
  5. Favorite 2010: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2011: Hanna 2012: Skyfall 2013: Man of Steel? 2014: While Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the better film, I go back to Guardians of the Galaxy more. So GOTG. 2015: Creed 2016: Captain America: Civil War 2017: Logan 2018: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2019: Avengers: Endgame
  6. That's a very good question. My initial thought is that The Doctor materialized The Master's TARDIS inside her own and then dropped it somewhere. Maybe she even stored it inside her TARDIS. Or, if she could get to the chameleon circuit, she could leave it where it is but as a more era-appropriate item.
  7. Addams Family Values has more gore, so it gets the nod.
  8. As much as I enjoyed the companions here, I absolutely hated the laser shoes.
  9. Based solely on the focus that's being put on Magik, I'm wondering if the reshoots were to make the movie more about her.
  10. Gotta admit, I'm kinda down on the second part. The bulk of the episode seemed muddled and swerved aimlessly toward the Eiffel Tower and warehouse / presentation showdowns. Mostly, though, what did Ada Lovelace and Noor Inayat Khan's inclusions add to the story? No, I'm not whining about female historical figures as companions, because that's awesome and we need more of that please. What I mean is, they were nothing more than sounding boards for The Doctor to explain things to in the absence of her "fam." They could have been literally anyone, historical or otherwise. When they had the opportunity to add something without The Doctor's presence, it took them all of 30 seconds to find The Master's TARDIS. And, sure, by meeting Khan The Doctor had access to a spy's telegraph, but she could build something like that in her sleep. Then again, maybe I missed something relating to the Kasaavins being time-spies and that's why Khan and Lovelace were integral to the plot. Can we also not do another Gallifrey-based mystery? So much time was spent on The Doctor believing himself to be the last living Time Lord only to learn he actually saved his people (2005-2013), to the whole confession dial thing (2015), I feel I need a big break from anything doing with her people. Even that five-year gap doesn't seem long enough. All my moaning aside, it was really good to see the companions companion-ing even in the face of never seeing The Doctor again. Whenever The Doctor is not around, the companions should know what to do to gather clues and solve mysteries.
  11. This actually looks like it might be kinda interesting. It also looks like a lot of focus will be placed on Anya Taylor-Joy's Magik. Hopefully Charlie Heaton will bring a little more to Cannonball than what we're shown here, 'cause I do love me some Sam Guthrie. Alice Braga is playing Cecilia Reyes, but I'm thinking (and hoping) she's Miss Sinister in disguise.
