    The pandemic isn't going to let up soon. Frankly, I don't feel safe returning to a mainstream theater, either. I definitely think that Disney should look into just going all-in on streaming. The...

    Sticky: Re: DC Movies Thread - Shazam saves the day

    I'm not really sure I get the point of Wonder Woman 1984. It just seems like a really weird story to tell.

    I'm not really a fan of how the movie just seems to be "women must suffer." Diana reacts...

    Re: Star Wars Universe - Resurrection F

    I wish they'd spent more time on CG Luke, as well as letting him be a little goofy. He was way too stiff for that scene where he talks to Mando and Grogu, IMO.

    But it's already sending the opposite message. A trans woman was depicted as a villain, a murder, unable to afford to transition and then she was killed off without having her story expanded upon and...

    Re: My Hero Academia II - Bhyyyyyyyyy

    Yeah, the comic--being a corporate product--really does seem to frame the 'villains' as being in the wrong. It's oddly 'libertarian' and Ayn Randy-esque. It argues that the villains are just 'lazy'...

    This can work. If the movie begins with Pete needing a lawyer--rather than him going on the run--they just need to do a jaunty little musical montage of Pete trying to convince various--perhaps...

  12. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    Yeah, but Tomioka Atsuhiro is a better writer than Toriyama so the anime is often much better, especially when their hands aren't so tied by weird restrictions on what kind of shit they can and...
  13. Re: Dragonball Discussion Kai: Broly but this time it's not Broly

    I feel like I would have liked this chapter if the arc hadn't been so fucking terrible since the end of the Namek portion. I really wish Moro had had more depth to his character. :(

    Hahi was an episode director on #118, too, so this is his first full episode directing debut. He and his animators really put a lot into the episode.

    The structure of the fight is being dragged out, for sure. I feel like the chapter could have easily cut material. We don't NEED to see how Toga and Ochako meet, just cut to them having met and use...
