Random movie and tv thoughts

Recommended Posts

It wasn't anything special, but it was entertaining. Pogo was underused. Cha Cha and Hazel were overused. The big twist was obvious from the first episode. The choreographed dance scene was pretty cool visually, but that was all it was. Seeing Diego start dancing was like seeing Batman randomly start dancing. It doesn't fit his personality. For me the standout character was Number 5. That kid can act.

You know what sucks? Getting to watch an anticipated new show and not being allowed to talk about it because of an NDA. How do reviewers do it?

So, yeah, late to this party, but Bob's Burgers is a lot of fun. And Louise is amazing!

Of all the recent animated comedy shows, that was the one that pleasantly surprised me the most. Really fun show.

The smartest thing they could do is have reality shift slightly because of Endgame and return to a world where X-Men and fantastic Four are already a part of.

Something about the idea of rebooting FF and X-Men from origin stories is so unappealing.

This. I've been thinking this was the way to go for a while now.

Seriously, think about the insanity if out of nowhere there's a post-credits scene in Endgame that has an early 60s rocket crash and John Krasinski and three other people climb out in blue jumpsuits.

Personally, I think they should put The X-Men in it's own corner. Retconning them into existence just doesn't work. Fantastic Four and Latveria are much easier. Saying that there's always been a group of people that are hated and feared is much harder.

As someone who has read X-Men for years, the thing that makes X-Men is that it's an ensemble piece and if one thing most X-Men films fails at, it's how many characters are just in the background. So, real talk, Disney should skip doing X-Men as just films. They have Disney+, they have Hulu, they have multiple Cable Networks, just do a series. Do multiple series. X-Men is a soap opera. Embrace it.

I think an easy fix would be to have mutants always having been around, but the X-Men specific adventures all ended up with Xavier mindwiping everyone. That way, you could introduce the concept of mutant prejudice as a new thing without being a NEW thing.

You could also have someone learn that Xavier has been mindwiping the world, thus leading to a justifiable fear of someone who's been manipulating the entire planet for decades.

One of the heroes having survived Endgame is taken into a room by Nick Fury and shown a video of a falling piece of debris about to flatten them and all of a sudden it's vaporized. Slowed down, the video shows a massive red beam. Another innocent is whisked away from Hulk and Thanos tumbling through a building. Slowed down, it's a guy with wings. A building on fire with people in it all of a sudden smoke turns to steam. Iceman. The X-Men have been in the shadows too long. They're here now.

Exactly. This is their coming out party. They've clearly been doing good, but the implications of mind manipulation lead us right into a world that fears and hates them.

Also, please: just one flashback of Namor fighting the Original Human Torch at the World's Fair. Just a few seconds of it. That's all I need.

Love, Death & Robots on Netflix is very cool. The different animation styles are impressive and each plot is vastly different than the previous short. I highly recommend it.
