  1. Y'know what, I like it. We still have a Queer Actress in the part and another show on The CW that is anchored by a person of color. I am pretty excited to see what they do!
  2. On the note of the Mr. A/Arcade connection, that does get followed up in Uncanny X-Men#145. I am so happy to see Earth 2 in 1 back! Always a fun segment!
  3. I only got around to listening to this today. First off, How DARE you continue to call me out over watching The Holiday Special! It's not like I have voodoo dolls of both of you set-up in front of a TV where I leave The Holiday Special playing sometimes while I'm at work or out of the house for a few hours. Mostly kidding there. So, something that came to mind when listening to the episode was about the Luke and Biggs at Toshi Station scene. I remember that for the longest time, the internet was convinced that the scene has been present when Start Wars was first broadcast in the early 80s on Television. People had vivid memories of the scene, could describe it, and it lined up perfectly. While this sounds weird, it is a common practice for a movie to either take out scenes to fill the broadcast time or add deleted scenes in if they don't have enough to fill a timeslot. This was accepted as reality until around I think it was the Special Edition when someone actually dug up a VHS copy of the Broadcast and, sure enough, it wasn't there. Turns out, it was a combination of kids having read Star Wars #1 and a Star Wars Story Book that had stills from the movie and then remembering it a certain way when they talking to a bunch of strangers on a Usenet. The Mandela Effect in action, y'all.
  4. And I bet he looks phenomenal with a purple bucket on his head!
  5. Dark Horse could last. They still do a fair bit of liscensed stuff including some Disney Stuff that they don't do through Marvel. Also the collectables and big, over-sized art books will keep them going in the Bookstore Market for awhile. Direct Market is more iffy but they're not completely dead yet. As for the Alien/Predator stuff, now might be a good time to pick up any of those collected books before they go out of print, especially the crossover stuff with DC..
  6. 101 Dalmatians: The Original Animated Version. It's very cute. Aladdin: The Live-Action Remake. It's way too long and way too unnecessary. I just can't be bothered to care or like it. Films: 95 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 1 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 14
  7. I never actually said if I liked it or not I just realized. It's a visually interesting movie. There's a scene transition early that really caught my attention. It is a smidge long but I really liked the dread they conveyed in a horror film where that are few to no dark scenes. It's a break-up film framed as a Folksy Cult Slasher Film.
  8. If you're happy to help I would appreciate answers to the following questions: Which State/Province do you live in/come from? I was born in Montana but we moved to Northern Ohio when I was 2 because that's where my dad was from. I have since moved to Dayton, Ohio which is in the Southwestern part of the state. What makes your state special/different to others? Ohio is in an interesting place politically. No Republican has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio. Our state is also the birthplace of both The Wright Brothers and Thomas Edison as well as 7 Presidents which is the second highest after Virginia. In addition, Ohio is one of the prime example of The Midwestern Dialect which is that incredibly generic accent you hear in every movie because of how unremarkable it sounds compared to if you nudge a little south, a bit to the east, west, or north. What local foods is your state known for? First off, you have the aforementioned Skyline Chili which is... something. It's basically a hearty meat sauce with cinnamon and spices that is commonly eaten over Spaghetti or Hot Dogs. It's an acquired taste. Then you have Buckeyes which are balls of peanut butter that are dipped in chocolate. Not completely native to Ohio but it is named for our State Tree. What special buildings do you have? Dayton is home to The United States Air Force Museum which houses many historical planes. We sadly lost our bid to get a space shuttle but oh well. Ohio houses The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. We used to have a building shaped like a Giant Basket in Columbus because it was dismantled. No appreciation for kitsch.
  9. He was an openly gay director during the 80s when that just didn't happen. He made some very watchable films. He gave generously and advanced the careers of many actors. The Man deserves to be remembered well.
  10. Come to Daddy: Elijah Wood isn't a bad actor. The film itself is alright, a little too much torture porn at times but still pretty alright. Captain America: The Winter Soldier: Easily one of the best of The MCU, if not the best. Chris Evans is a great action star. Midsommar: Speaking of torture porn... Mostly kidding. I kinda want to watch the original The Wicker Man because there are some real parallels here. Aladdin and The King of Thieves: It's an okay straight to video Disney sequel. I'm glad that Robin Williams got a big payout for it. Films: 93 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 1 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 14
  11. I Love You Both: Hulu likes to recommend me really cringy movies. I watch them so it keeps on recommending them to me. It's not that good of a film, a kinda sorta comedy about fraternal twins that both develop feelings for the same guy. It's almost the same film as The Skeleton Twins only neither of the stars have the same charisma. Mayhem: This was tons of fun... also a little unsettling given current events since part of the premise is that there's a virus that makes people go a little insane and an early scene shows how easy it is to spread.

  12. The trailer went up at 9 Eastern Time so 6 Pacific.
  13. The Hustle: I am, 100%, all for films that give women in Hollywood more to do. The irony that they remade Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels with a genderbent cast is not lost on me, keeping every plot element including the ending, is not lost on me. It's Rebel Wilson making more of the usual Rebel Wilson jokes, It's Anne Hathaway doing an accent, it's pretty run of the mill. Scream, Queen! My Nightmare On Elm Street: A fascinating look at A Nightmare on Elm St. 2, It's Star Mark Patton, and Gay Hollywood in the 80s. There's a lot of be admired though certain interactions could have went better. Still worth a watch. The Road to El Dorado: A film I have mainly avoided over the last two decades. It never appealed to me. Watching it today, it's decent and fun. It is also definitely a memeable and queer as I had been lead to believe. Films: 87 Documentaries: 1 Rewatches: 1 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 14
  14. The Velocipastor: It came up in conversation while playing Overwatch with some friends so we decided to watch it. It's still a weird ass film The Hunger Games: I've been on a Social Strategy Game kick lately and we ended up on this film and I started droning on and on about effective alliances and voting techniques. Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence does a pretty good job. Films: 85 Rewatches: 1 Mst3k/Rifftrax/Other Assisted: 14
  15. It honestly just hit the right combination of things. At that point, Disney was still a year off from buying Marvel. A handful of different studios owned stuff (conincidentally, Disney had some distribution rights to a few of those at the time). That said, looking at the larger catalog, there's still some stuff we're unlikely to see on Disney+ anytime soon namely the 67 Fantastic Four series (Hanna-Barbera still owns that), The Spectacular Spider-Man (Sony produced it), or The Marvel Super Hero Show (because the animation on those is ROUGH and who even has nostalgia for them?).
