/mtv/ General: “Farewell, Roger Moore” Edition
Previous Thread: >>47158
Man with the Golden Gun is still one of my top favorites. Along with Octopussy.
So, what did you guys think of Alien Covenant?

The movie was pretty as hell, and had some very satisfying gruesome moments, this I can't deny. But damn, I left the theater with a hollow feelling of "been there, done that". As much as I criticize Prometheus at least that film didn't make me feel like that. I need to rewatch it to make a better judgment, but I think Prometheus even with all its lows is a better movie.

Also, two things:

I have no idea why David is doing all this weird freaky shit.

And, holy crap, the characters in the movie were DUMB.

So more rumors of the problems with the Star Trek Discovery show newest that its going to be facing some stiff competition form The Orville which looks to be playing the role of a Star Trek series better than Discovery.


Also more evidence to those saying Abrams had to be dragged into doing Star Trek are full of shit.
So I'm gonna get myself a Netflix subscription for a month to support Little Witch Academia, anything else absolutely neccessary to watch on there?
DreamWorks Animation series are all pretty solid. Buddy Thunderstruck is decent fun. Series of Unfortunate Events is rather good along with Stranger Things.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

I recommend “Voltron: Legendary Defender” and the new MST3K.
Knights of Sidonia and BLAME! if you haven't already watched them. And maybe The Witcher, but that is not out yet and is unkown if it will be good.

While the host segments are kinda iffy the Mst3k revival is good. Guy doing Crow starts really finding his voice around episode 4.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

My main complaint lies with the reversed structure of the Invention Exchange segments compared to the original show. I would still call that a minor complaint, though.
I think the between-movie segments are way better in the new show than they ever were in Joel's era (Mike kinda deemphasized them).
An actual budget does wonders for Joel physical effects focus.

Those bits of Tom floating around in the theater and such are so dumb. I love them all.

“Cry Wilderness” is an instant classic.

>Netflix now doing a "That's so Raven" Revival.

Well okay. Netflix you keep shining on you crazy diamond.

Puts a notch in the idea that the Girl Meets World Showrunner may be pitching a continuation to them as well.

Oh and they are doing a Psych Christmas Special over on USA. Which could be a lead back into doing a continuation or spin-off.

I want to catch up on the Planet of the Apes prequels now. I had this expectation that the first movie would end with "And the Apes take over the world". Apparent they are playing a longer game.
Seeing the Gorillas working with humans I hope there is a more advanced reason than "Humans bred them for that." And the Gorillas allied with them because they don't like the Chimps.

Be neat. Gorillas just don't care for Chimpanzees or other Primates yet somehow found some kinship with Humans.

Be a neat way for things to shake out in a retelling of things. Human/Gorilla society existing apart from the one that Cesar sets up.

But likely it won't. Free Gorillas from human masters blah blah blah.
I agree, the plot of this movie that hasn't been released and we haven't watched yet surely sucks and is terrible.

Not saying terrible just not expecting anything that differs from the standard oppression/rise stories.

Heck I don't even remember the film that came before this one.
First, pretty much all reviews seem to agree that this movie is actually the most character-oriented of the trilogy, and plenty mention that the apes working with the humans are there for a good plot reason. Apparently, they were Koba's followers who resent Caesar's rule, and voluntarily switched sides.

Second, Dawn was an excellent film. If you don't recall anything from it, it's clear you don't have an interest in the ongoing plot of the trilogy, so I am not sure why are we having this argument in the first place.

Star Trek: Discovery premieres September 24th on... CBS All Access? The fuck is this paywall bs?

CBS wants those digital bucks like all the others. But I really don't see the reason to pay months for the show and I doubt many others will either. Also rest of the world gets it on Netflix who knowing the Netflix releases they'll get all the episodes at once and it'll be spoiled right quick.

Not that it matters. Main Character is pretty much adopted by Sarek and is the most important person in the universe. Its the level of character writing I'm dreading will infect the New Doctor.

Straight up Spock now has an adopted human sister. Least in this universe.
All the more reason the Orville will be a better show.
//youtube.com/watch?v=tQcLLfzzKWAyoutube thumb

According to Midnight's Edge part of the fanbase has some to the same reasoning. In part because Seth MacFarlane seems to get the Roddenberry vision of the future more than this Kelvin offshoot series (as the video states all the prime timeline talk is just for show and the actual production will have nothing to do with TOS era stuff as its known)

Discovery = Dark and Gritty

The Orville = Bright and Optimistic

Honestly which one sounds more like Star Trek

And this tidbit


No usage of god even in swearing. Though it seems that taking all faith out of the Federation is gonna seem rather odd when put against a group of Klingon who are very devout in faith. That's gonna be some uncomfortable parallels in its own right. The high minded federation that long ago "abandoned mysticism" vs the super religious Klingon.

Yea that's not gonna come off as heavy handed.

Also makes humanity the odd race out since pretty much everyone even Vulcan's still have some connection to deities.

Also since they have so much riding on retaining the license as the video title says they have another series in the back pocket if needed and that will go up on CW if Discovery fails (since CBS Direct will go with it, as I've thought was the case from the start)

That series will be "Prime" Timeline focused.
I'll believe a show by Seth mcFarlane and Brannon Braga will be worth the bits its printed on when I see it, and not a minute before.
I mean to be fair, the new Cosmos was good, and Seth McFarlane was a major player in that.
ETA: Actually, looks like Brannon Braga was the director on that, too.

Okay you've got so much twisted there that I am shocked.

So lets try and breakdown all the ways in which you got it wrong.

A) You are talking about the Giggler who was based on a real serial killer.

B) The Giggler was a Latino man in the film.

C) He worked at the behest of Fraker who was a white man.

D) Kersey doesn't kill him for stealing his groceries, he kills him because he was the main thug enforcer who terrorized the neighborhood and killed at least two people, one being Charlie and the other an unnamed girl whose head rammed a switchblade into.

E) The "groceries" were a two hundred dollar camera in 1985 which Kersey used as a lure to get a clean shot as the Giggler was incredibly fast.

F) The people who cheered were predominately mixed in race with the woman who screamed out cheers and adulation being a black women so happy she didn't have to live in fear of him having been previously victimized.

G) Go fuck yourself for not even getting basic details of the film right, Death Wish 3 is dumb as fuck but it's not racist and doesn't need your bullshit misrepresentation comparing to this Eli Roth fucking sludge.

Is it really so fucking hard to watch a youtube clip?

//youtube.com/watch?v=1L2_jgZQRNYyoutube thumb
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Also: Kersey was Asian-American himself, and his killings were not limited to people of one specific ethnicity. One could argue that he was working as an agent of a White power structure (the NYPD), but that would still ignore how his killings targeted people of multiple ethnicities, including the White leader of the gang terrorizing the neighborhood in which Kersey set up shop.
Though at the time the NYPD was a crippled entity. Pretty much not running after dark and nowhere near the manpower to serve the entire city.

Death Wish was pretty reflective of the time as that was when Vigilante Squads arose to protect the neighborhoods the cops had abandoned.

Been listening to the Last Podcast on the Left which does a lot of Serial Killer coverage. So that era comes up.

Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM
Puttin’ this here instead of the Marvel thread because fuck it, that’s why:


>There are four moves a streaming consumer might make once Disney’s service launches. In all four, consumer utility per dollar goes down. If consumers pay for two services, even one dollar more per month, that increases the price for the same amount of content. If they just subscribe to Disney, the consumer will get less content per dollar for that subscription, so the marginal price goes up even if the out-of-pocket cost decreases. If they just do Netflix, they get less content per dollar for the old price (and lose a premium provider), so the value of their Netflix subscription drops, though the out-of-pocket price doesn’t change. If they don’t do either, they’ll have more money in their pocket but lose the benefits (what economists call “utility”) of a streaming subscription, so they lose life enjoyment (which is its own kind of price). It’s lose-lose-lose-lose.
Though with Netflix I can see them expanding their field to create more content to fill the gaps.

Disney I don't see CREATING content for the digital platform as much as just having a place to PUT things. And as we've seen with Makers their age group they want to go after seems to be at odds with image projection. Flatly we won't see Punisher on the same service as Mickey Mouse. And that not even going into the "vault" and keeping some content away.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

The biggest issue here lies in just how far Disney—and CBS, and every other major broadcast and cable network—thinks people will go to keep up with all this content. Netflix was considered a huge value because, hey, hundreds of movies at your fingertips and no ads or censorship or physical media to worry about. (Side note: If you want guaranteed access to the media that matters most to you, buying your own content is the way to go. I still pick up the occasional Blu-ray.) That Netflix has original programming now is a bonus, just as it is for Hulu or Amazon Prime Video.

Disney could have made their service look much more alluring by keeping Disney content on Netflix. Families who occasionally watch Disney movies on Netflix can keep doing so, while families who use Netflix almost exclusively for Disney-style content could conceivably switch over to the Disney service and lose nothing of value. But Disney decided to make people explicitly choose between Netflix and Disney, and that is not going to end well for anyone in the long run.
CBS according to Midnights Edge and their industry sources has it all riding on Star Trek Discovery. A few executives don't like the expense of the show combined with no chance for advertising revenue.

That combined with Netflix putting a lot of money into the production and getting cut out of the largest market which has lead to rumors of possible legal action. If Star Trek Discovery isn't a hit from the start the CBS is said to be looking to scrap the whole project both Discovery as a larger show with a ending they filmed showing it to be a one off series anthology and the next series going on CW who happens to have a distribution deal with Netflix.

I can see Disney thinking they can do this with little problems as they are old hands at the premium channel concept. But they were at the forefront of things back then and a good square of their content is almost interchangeable with content from Nickelodeon who also have a sizable number of premium channels but have fallen out of favor with providers services for pretty much the same reason. They think they are the reason people want such services and greatly overvalued themselves which has crippled the Viacom viewership numbers across the board.

Because when it came down to doing without or paying inflated prices for content. People decided to just do without.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Disney is one of only a handful of major media conglomerates that could pull off a “company-only” streaming service and make it work beyond the success of a single show or movie. It has an established brand, nearly a century’s worth of content, and the money to make it happen. I could actually believe that families would buy into “DisneyFlix” based on the notion that it is a “family-friendly” service. But that still does not change how “DisneyFlix” would ultimately be a bad move for both Disney and consumers.
Its the "family-friendly" thing that would really cramp it. Also I could see it being similar to how HBO Direct is treated. Sign up watch the show that you want and then unsubscribe. Reason HBO is putting out year round content like Sesame Street to keep parents on the app even after GoT or West World is over.
>It has an established brand, nearly a century’s worth of content, and the money to make it happen.

Plus, between Star Wars, the Marvel movies, their live action remakes, and the recent string of highly successful in-house CGI movies, Disney has been obliterating the competion at the theaters for a while. That probably makes the execs confident enought that they can do the same in the streaming business.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

That still gets into whether people will see enough value in subscribing to Disney’s service just for Marvel/“Star Wars” content. I can fathom a few megafans doing that, sure, but not enough to make it worth Disney’s while.
I swear that was kinda they backed down on the Netflix takeover. Just not enough content to fill it out. But then that's the same problem they have going it at alone with a smaller distribution idea. Not enough content to be viable.

Its why CBS will fail and NBC/Universal back down from the plans after they acquired Dreamworks. Not enough content to be a viable revenue stream. Netflix was able to swing it because the streaming started off as a kinda bonus to their mail service. And so they were well settled with a subscriber base before they kicked into gear.

But starting from gear one with nothing. Its why they've given themselves till 2019. See how it pans out for the others.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Disney has enough content to be viable, especially if they put their entire film and television library online without the “vault” bullshit. But content alone will not save this venture if customers decide that they’d rather not pay another ten dollars per month just for Disney/Marvel/“Star Wars” content.
The Vault will be a sticking point. They've built decades of using their Vault Cycle to boost revenue with scarcity. Someone is bound to choke when contemplating ending that nonsense.

Another note some of that content in HD and Blueray when it comes to their older movies is utter shit. Sword in the Stone being one of the worst remasters.

IF and its a HUGE "IF" that if they actually go back and put new versions from the original prints remasters as part of the service instead of those failures than maybe they'll have something worth looking into.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

The kind of people who would be placated by that kind of move would probably just wait for a new Blu-ray/4K release. While I could appreciate actual remasters going up on the service, I do not see that as a legitimate “selling point” for the average person.
I think one of the other things was Netflix being "in debt" which made Disney pull back. Though listening to Midnight's Edge followup on the Star Trek stuff which they reveal the new proposed show if Discovery falls is a Khan centered show. They also note that while Netflix has a lot of bills to pay they are also good money and always pay up.

So what the Hollywood Media touts as a "problem" isn't one really.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

And last I heard, the actual amount of the debt that Netflix owes was overblown.
Wouldn't doubt it. Lot of Hollywood don't like Netflix being Netflix. Even though about a decade ago they were looking into streaming movies as an alternative to theater releases since revenue was down before that new wave of blockbusters.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Hollywood hates Netflix because Hollywood doesn't technically own Netflix. If one or more of the major studios had a ownership stake in Netflix, they would love the fuck out of it.
And to more happy things than just industry trying to come out of its death spiral.

Watched my first TISM concert (a recording; they essentially retired a decade ago) and it's everything I expected, just chaotic. An iconic part of the band is their use of bandanas (as well as other extravagant costumes) to conceal their identities at least two turned out to be high-school music teachers. However a couple of the band members just dive into the crowd and emerge in only underwear, with stage crew members dragging them back toward the stage and putting new bandanas on them (I think one random audience member just threw their own bandana onto the stage for the band members to use). It's almost like watching a piranha horror movie except with rock music and drunk yobbos. Half the footage from the 43 minute mark onward is damage control from the stage crew.

>xHamster has approached the sisters Wachowski about doing season 3 of Sense8

Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Well, it’s not the worst idea in the world. xHamster gets lots of visitors; has the infrastructure in place to handle demand; and hosts content that would never air on broadcast, cable, or even premium cable networks. The only differences between them and Netflix are how Netflix doesn’t host porn and how xHamster gives a damn about Sense8.

Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Well, that is…uh…hmm.
Halloween 2 is decent but if they decide to ignore it, it's not a dealbreaker for me. Who knows, perhaps the new writer asked Carpenter how he'd do it if he actually cared for the sequel (instead of, you know, hastily writing "they are siblings" late at night to be done with it), and they came up with a cool new twist.
Hope The Orville rebuilds some of its steam. Apparently the sudden change from Sunday to Thursday caused a drop. For me in part because I expected it to be NEXT Thursday to be the new air time not the Thursday after airing on Sunday. But its Fox the king od shit Episodes seem solid though "About a girl" seems to be making people twitchy.

Though in all its not that different a discussion than what has appeared in Star Trek shows before. Questions about species/race/gender and conformity.

This is still a great Star Trek show and folks that wanted this to be Family Guy in space. Well I feel bad for them. For having such horrendous taste.
To be honest, I feel a bit twitchy about it as well, fully aware that this is hardly a new direction for Star Trek. I think it just comes down to the fact that it was a bit more transparent on its issues and today's ideological climate makes it a more touchy subject given, not the subject, but the sort of individuals that would get involved in the debatethese days.

It was still a decent episode, but it really still is a bit early to try to make statements as weighty as that episode wanted to.

I need to rewatch the new Blade Runner. I might like it better than the original. I do find it interesting how a prevalent theme in sequels to older franchises have a father/offspring dynamic in a bunch of them.
The main character is better in the new movie, that's for sure.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

…yeah, good point on moving it here.

As for MacFarlane and those who made jokes about Weinstein years ago: It is possible that they heard rumors and such without knowing what Weinstein had done. That said, even they should have spoken up a hell of a lot earlier or spoken a hell of a lot louder than an off-color joke.
Problem is and has been the same problem for decades. You may be an actor but they are the executives with the lawyers that will destroy you or in some as its coming out take you down with them as part of the whole seedy business. And then we've got the quotes for the likes of those that make their living interviewing like Barbra Walters who didn't want to go down that path because it would bring all of Hollywood down to know what some of their A-list talent does to the less known.

For those that are especially young like Cory Haim and his abusers and Singer and his whole cadre. They get fed the stories of "I'll make you a star" and "Its just the way things work." Or just beat you down enough where life isn't life anymore.

As for Seth word is his Co-star on Ted confided in him and that his barbs came from a very angry place.

Another of Hollywood's vile open secrets that none of them wanted to get out there.
For McFarlane it wasn't just a rumor, a friend of his told him about a bad experience she had with Weinsten.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM
For whatever this is worth: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to expel Harvey Weinstein.

And yes, they have not yet expelled convicted sex offender Roman Polanski or similarly-accused sexual predators Bill Cosby and Woody Allen. One step at a time, here.
Either that or they'll hold the expulsion of Weinstein as being "enough".

Because this shit encompasses a whole hell lot of A-list talent going back decades. They want to shut this down before all of Hollywood burns.

Cory and Elijah need to light that match.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

>Either that or they'll hold the expulsion of Weinstein as being "enough".

Their public statement on the expulsion suggests otherwise, but thoughts < words < actions.

We went through a similar experience when Jimmy Saville's crimes came to light after he died. There was a sense that him being a creepy old sod was an open secret in many corners of the British entertainment industry (quiz shows would make jokes about it) but nobody dared voice them out loud while he was still alive. He was a major philanthropist and a "national treasure," which made him virtually untouchable.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Weinstein probably went down like he did because he was no such “national treasure”. He was powerful, yes, but he was not a creator—actor, director, playwright, what have you. We have proof of Polanski’s skill as a director, so we as a society overlook his indiscretion (read: his statutory rape of an underage girl and subsequent conviction for that crime). We have nothing to give us a similar connection with Weinstein; he fell faster and harder because he lacked that cultural “buffer”.

Maybe I just don't get it, but if you have proof, or you and a bunch of other people collectively testify that they got sexually abused, I don't think their lawyers can do shit to destroy your career, so long as you are fine working for other companies from then on.

Definitely. People appreciate creators more than (I think these are the right words) managers and bureaucrats. I think people will more readily see a bureaucrat as abusing their power than an artist. Of course that probably isn't the case, but I think there's more of a cultural acceptance that a boss can use his (or their, kinda maybe) position to sexually exploit their employees. On the other hand, an artist will have fans, so it's easier to believe the act is acceptable for the victim.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Well, that is mostly the case, but think of it this way: Johnny Depp could be the world's biggest asshole and lots of people would still love him specifically because he was Jack Sparrow.
Oh yeah, that too.

Ahahaha, the people behind Jigsaw found the worst goddamn way to shoehorn Tobin Bell back into the franchise for at least that one film.
Damn, Kevin Spacey...

Also, his response to the accusation basically being "sorry I don't remember being a pedophilic pervert to you, was too drunk, also BTW i am gay"... yesssl, blatantly using the gay community as a shield, what an asshole.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

By making that statement, he not only made this situation all about himself, he enabled every anti-queer asshole who conflates homosexuality with pedophilia to point at him and yell “I was right”. The media will help him with that, too—because they are bound to make this story more about “Spacey came out” than about “Spacey allegedly sexually assaulted a 14-year-old”.
Yeah, that response was meticulously worded to minimize the "14 year old" part and just make it a gay thing, I doubt Spacey himself wrote any of it, it's the product of a team of lawyers and advisors.

How about instead of coming out as gay, come out as a hebephile.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Also an issue: He framed his coming out as “choosing” to live as a gay man, thus also emboldening all the assholes who think sexual orientation can be “chosen”. He threw every other gay person under the bus for his own sake. But at least he cannot enjoy that “win”—House of Cards got shitcanned by Netflix.
Goddamn, I had no idea Neil DeGrasse had been accused recently or rape. What the hell.
This current wave of accusations is bittersweet (although I thoroughly support it): unfortunately I believe it may encourage false accusations, which if found will injure the cases of actual victims (hell, someone might be smart enough to fake a false accusation to discredit their victims), and if more accusations come out, it will make a lot of people disappointed in Hollywood persons we respected.

Yes, a few mainstream news outlets seem to be emphasising that, which is good to see.

That doesn't seem likely. A baseless accusation would be passed over by every news media with anything resembling credibility (or concern with lawsuits), languishing so far in obscurity that the faker bringing it up would be suspicious. Setting up false evidence/witnesses that could later be disproved would be absurdly impractical.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Dark Universe—an attempt by Universal Pictures to create a shared cinematic universe out of films featuring all the classic horror film monsters—has been shelved. Blame most likely goes to the dismal performance of “The Mummy”, which was the second of the Dark Universe films. (I say “second” because Universal tried to kickstart their shared universe before with “Dracula Untold”.)
Alpharius a go-go
Good ridence.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

In fairness, the base idea of the Dark Universe—a bunch of horror/action films with connective narrative tissue working up to what would essentially be “Monster Squad for adults”—could have worked. Universal needed to make good movies for it first, though.
It was a bad and confusing idea. Tom Cruise gets mummy powers or something and Jekyll/Hyde is the leader.

Last part could work fine it was just the execution of the first part and needing for the Mummy Powers that messed things up.

Louis CK show was super honest to his life, one of the episodes is literally about him trying to rape a close friend of his. He's always been honest about being fucking wretched and his struggles to deal with it....

I think he's going to be the person this comes down to, what to we really do with flawed people? Not the ultra power and evil, but the flawed and mistaking humans who fucked up super hard? Jail time? Sure but that's not making them any less flawed, only more toxic.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

>what to we really do with flawed people? Not the ultra power and evil, but the flawed and mistaking humans who fucked up super hard?

We treat them as we would the “evil”. We should not make exceptions for “flawed“ people if they are of sound mind and know the difference between right and wrong—both of which apply to Louis C.K. His honesty does not, nor should it, make his actions any less reprehensible. To wit:


I have not yet read about the allegations of his behavior, but if they seem credible—and remember, the court of public opinion has a much lower standard than a court of law—his acting and activist careers should both come to an end.

Why should that come to an end? I do not know about it but it doesn't seem profitable.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

If a sexual consent activist group employed Louis C.K., would you take it seriously?
No, but I don't think that's a fair comparison. That would be a hypocritical (assuming you meant pro-consent) cause since his crime was due to a lack of consent.

If Louis C.K. campaigned for gay rights and anti-xenophobia I would take him as seriously as any other celebrity who did it. People who do bad things can also do good things. It doesn't make up for the bad things, but it also doesn't invalidate their good deeds. Invalidating a person's charitable actions by one aspect of their personality isn't something I can support.

If a Nazi acts like a good Samaritan to a random stranger, that should not be rejected just because they are an ultranationalist. It's easy to treat life like a Hollywood film or comic with "good guys" and "bad guys", but it's not really like that.
Mr. Stone !zWb42fBPMM

Bad people can do good things—this, I do not dispute. But their doing good things does not make them good people if they keep doing the bad things.

So, people are still making demos and music for the Commodore 64
That does not surprise me at the least. A few years back someone even ported Prince of Persia to the C64, extremely faithfully too.

However as far as C64 demos go, I don't think anything will ever top Edge of Disgrace for me. Hard to believe it turned 10 years old this year.

It's not just the effects themselves which are impressive... well, you hardly see new effects on the C64 nowadays, and once you saw the plasma effect or the text scroller for the tenth time it becomes boring. But, here, everything is animated in a way so there are transitions. Most demos just show one effect, then switch to the next, etc. On Edge of Disgrace, you have small effects dedicated to the transition between each effect.

I mean it's such a subtle little detail, but it's impressive as shit.

Watched this one today, because the title reminded me of one of my favourite Iron Maiden songs. Turns out, the song was actually based on this movie.

It's a great flick, although a bit basic. It only goes in one direction, no plot twists or anything (other than revealing some facts about the main character which are already obvious by that point). I expected the ending a little bit, but that's only because I like the idea of characters getting redemptions, even if it's not much of a one and perhaps more like he was trying to keep himself out of jail.

Watching the TV Series they made out of The Boys.
The way he's dressed up, I always mistake Karl Urban for Brad Pitt with a hair dye. I'm only up to the first ep, the story has a lot of changes, and makes some of the characters reasonings a bit different. Like, in the comic, Hughie was an emotional wreck who just wanted his girlfriend to be alive again, and Butcher actively coached him into the job, even if it was only revealed years later that he was doing so. The TV series makes doesn't really give the same emotion to Hughie in this regard.
They do not downplay the hedonism of the heroes though, but they don't show so much probably to keep the ratings down (the scene with Annie isn't that hardcore, I mean, they don't have three guys in there...). Homelander is presented a bit different too.

It's a shame that Hughie and Butcher don't look closer to their comic versions, but they did give a shout-out to him being a likeness of Simon Pegg, by making Pegg have a cameo as Hughie's dad (and yeah, he isn't the same character as in the comic).

Well, the spirit of the series is still there, even if the setting is a bit different. I'm gonna watch the rest, let's hope it's okay. I hate how they always have to change shit around for TV or Movie, even when a series would work as-is in that setting. With that kept in mind, it's not bad, as far as the first ep I watched so far.
Also, props to whoever picked the music. Great selections so far. Clash, Iggy Pop... good shit.
Playing "London Calling" when Butcher goes medieval is probably a nod to his London origins in the comic too.

Oh! and he speaks just like in the comic. Same argot and all. That one brightened up my day, cause I really liked how he talked.
After watching the rest of the season, I'm highly disappointed. Too many characters and storylines were cut, while the ones that stayed have dramatically different timing. Except for Starlight, nearly every characters is worse in the TV series than in the comics. The violence and gore is severly toned down, after the first two or so episodes there's few mentions of the supes deviances either.

The Boys team itself comes off as a bunch of nobodies without a reason to go along with this beyond owing something to Butcher. Butcher himself is just an asshole, not the manipulative bastard. Hughie is practically carrying the team on his own. The rest of the team are practically ineffective, and they don't even have company backing because Butcher is an impatient asshole. They are just a couple of rogues.
Frenchie and Female are alright, although Frenchie is less insane and Female is much less inhuman. Mothers Milk is a random nigga with a normal wife and a normal daughter.

For the supes, The Deep and A-Team are totally different and Deep in particular is so much worse. Jack from Jupiter is replaced with a different martian manhunter expy, a guy who can turn invincible as well as invisible (favourite occupation: jerking it off in womens bathrooms).
Stillwell is just some random company chick, not the Ultimate CEO from the comics.
Homelander is great though, steals the show whenever he appears. Maeve is okay, but nowhere near the broken mess she was in the comics.

Moreover, while the comic slowly steps up the game by going after smaller supes first, and then building it up to the more dangerous teams, the TV series goes after the Seven immediately. Butchers reasoning is particularly weaker, in the comic something truly horrible happened to him, in the TV series he basically got cucked by Homelander and that's all.

There's no Terror, Legend, Love Sausage. Terror has a half second cameo in a flashback.
On the upside, they managed to bring over a lot of the mannerisms for the characters they didn't change.

Also, they name dropped the artists of the book, Robertson and McCrea, as two senators. Had to rewind that part to make sure I heard it right, haha.
I mean the comic itself is shit, really is just pointless edgy garbage from that wanker Ennis who has a hateboner for all heroes except Superman.

Even then, I would rewrite the first one a little.
Well to be fair, when you take a step back, modern superheroes are pretty ridiculous in concept and much more so in execution. It becames doubly ridiculous when people try writing them "seriously" or when you have the 90s grimdark bullshit. About the only exemptions are the classic pulp heroes, and Superman (and he is an exemption not because of his superpowers but because he is a genuinely good person).

The real parody in The Boys aren't the superheroes though, but the media machine behind them. That's what the series satirizes: the comic book industry itself, not the superheroes. But this is lost on most people because they just think it's all edgy bullshit drivel. Like the annual company-wide crossovers being just an excuse to have an orgy.

Of course you can just watch it as "lol superheroes r bad" and you'll get your fill of satisfaction, but there was an actual narrative beyond all of that.

On the actual soundtrack album, it is the first song.
In the movie, it does kick on when the credits start - note however that the main title itself is the last scene of the movie, and the credits start with various post-movie scenes news flashes, so not just your standard credit roll but more like a post-movie scene. Once the song ends, then the actual boring credit roll starts.

Watched X-Men Apocalypse. "Apocalypse" is an apt title; covers much of the quality of this movie.
It's MOSTLY all right, until around the middle of the movie, where it just gets idiotic. The action scenes are poorly done, disjointed, and they end up looking childish and cheap with fancy CGI doing what it can to cover that up. Apocalypse just doesn't feel like a threat, all he wants is get Prof X (ok, this is a threat in itself). But when it comes to big fights, he does nothing at all! Throughout the movie, they set him up as a godlike thing who can turn people into dust with a thought, and handwave an entire city away and raise a giant pyramid in its place. But he doesn't actually do much fighting beyond some mental imagery, and putting Quicksilver in his place. Otherwise he just sits in a force field while everyone is lasering him nonstop. The story uses several deus ex machinas to stop him, some characters get a heel turn for no reason whatsoever, and the fact that they just fucked up the entire world gets hand waved away with no consequences implied or otherwise.

It's a cgi bullshit movie and just doesn't feel heroic in any way. I'm not sure if it's even meant to be, in fact I'm not sure whatever it is supposed to be. The previous X-men movies at least had a plot and so, this one is... 1. evil guy shows up, 2. evil guy does evil shit, 3. evil guy jobs and loses to the heroes. Yawn.

Man, one has to wonder why Sheev still sticks with the force lighting, in all three trilogies it ends up failing him.

Same reason Rey could pilot the Falcon™ better than Han, without a co-pilot, and without any practice. Same reason the New Republic would turn a blind eye to a terrorist organization for years on end, do nothing then get blown up. Same reason Luke decided to murder his nephew cuz he mite b-com eebil >:( Same reason Luke then abandons the entire galaxy to an oppressive regime "cuz if I die then the Sith will also die.... except that didn't work OOOPS" Same reason why we protect what we love, not destroy what we h8! Same reason as hope being like the sun, trust your government blindly and don't ask questions YOU HOT SHOT FLY BOI!

Actually, the reason is because Force Lightning™ is iconic, and people member it from Return of The Jedi.

Ad Astra (2019)
The promise: a psychological thriller where they try to find out what went wrong with a deep space manned mission, with the ship now threatening Earth.
The reality: Brad Pitt monologuing about his daddy issues for 2 hours while looking at his own reflection. The outer space mystery thriller part amounts to "oh they went insane after years of isolation". Most boring space movie I've ever seen.

Saw Lost in La Mancha. Terry Gilliam is such a unique man; being an american who spent a whole lot of time with brits, gave him an accent that is a blend of "general american" and "general south english".

Terminator: Dark Fate
The premise of the movie is something that an 8 year-old kid in 1992 would come up with: a woman is targeted for termination by Todd McFarlene's Spawn. No, really. There's even a key scene where they use a long-ass chain as a deadly weapon. Unexpectedly, the writing itself is equally garbage fan fiction tier. The characters are bland, the main hero turns from sobbing little girl to miss badass in no time, there are glaring plot holes, and the movie never really builds up towards anything. It just relies on a rollercoaster of spectacular CGI pyrotechniques to hide the fact that it has no depth whatsoever. But it has Arnold in it, plus Linda Hamilton reprising her role as Sarah Connor, so it's a BIG DEAL! I've seen Asylum movies with more plot than this trash.
They need to stop fucking making Terminator movies.
I'm a big sucker for Arnold movies, so as long as he gets a good role in them, I'm not against more Terminator movies. Incidentally the only single thing Dark Fate had going for it was Arnie getting some interesting character development (in fact the only character development in the movie).

All 3 of the french Fantomas movies are now available on Blu-Ray, original language with english subs).
Mister Twister
A little context: Fantomas is a 100 year old series of french novels about a bored rich guy who commits crimes for fun, while constantly getting away from the law via clever use of disguises. The 60s movies are part "modern day" adaptation, part parody/comedy. The movies are well known in France and certain european countries, but not in America.
The name Fantomas was familiar but I couldn't say from where. Maybe I was just confusing it with The Phantom. But it could be the fact that it was a Louis de Funés movie.

I'll have to put those on my list of movies to watch.
Mister Twister
The first movie is cantered around an incompetent but driven gendarme trying and failing to catch Fantomas but always failing (think Inspector Zenigata). The 2 sequels are more of the same, so if the first one doesn't do it for you, neither will the rest.
Annihilation (2018)

Slow pacing to make the horror build up properly, with the final moments being pretty chilling. The end twist was a bit lame or so I thought. It has two big problems: one is that Natalie Portman is the only person who can actually act horrified, the others just scream and pout like they are on permanent PMS. The other problem is that it's essentially a rip off of Lovecraft's Colour out of Space, but with more scifi, adventure, and girrrrl power.

What is that, the new Mulan?

She's born with special chi powers.
Mstr Twstr
The funny thing, the new Mulan is a perfectly fine cheesy kung fu film. But the timing of its release is awful, so the film becomes awful too.
The new mulan movie is so bad apparently even China hates it, and they are the market being explicitly shilled to.
Thing is, China wouldn't be interested in the movie even if it was good. Same way how Japan gave no shits about Pacific Rim or all the American made Godzilla movies. They have their own industry making better of the same, so why should they care about western attempts at that?
Mstr Twstr
Did Japan REALLY not give a shit about Pacific Rim? Fucking good movie it was.
>Did Japan REALLY not give a shit about Pacific Rim?

Japan already had a life-size Gundam statue by the time Pacific Rim was out, like I said, to them the movie was the cultural equivalent of what we consider chink shit.
And beyond the cultural thing, they get dozens of movies and anime in that genre every year, last thing they care about is plus one more gaijin made one.
China liked Kung Fu Panda.
fuck China.

Watching The Boys season 2
so far, the series is both getting further away from the comic and also in some aspects getting closer. They introduced Terror, Female had a completely different origin but now started doing Mafia jobs and tearing peoples faces off, Frenchie is just a gangbanger crook and not the batshit insane fellow he used to be, and Black Noir is some kind of ninja.
Maeve is a lesbian, and Stormfront is an influencer chick with a sidecut who has been around in different alias since at least the 70s, killing random niggers, and it has been implied that she re-makes her own image over the years to become a new hero - possibly because she does not appear to age. I was disappointed they didn't go with the ubermensch origin, but right now it feels like they will do that, but just through a different route. Last episode had her and Homelander wrecking an entire apartment while hatefucking.

According to the trailer, Love Sausage will also appear in later episodes, can't wait to see that.

And Terror still fucks anything when Butcher tells him to.
Love Sausage was just in the last episode. He's just a random inmate in an asylum where Vought is running experiments to stabilize the Compound V. He doesn't have superhuman strength or brake fluid vodka or any of that, which kind of sucks. His power is having a prehensile penis that can stretch long enough to strangle a man from the other end of a room. He doesn't even have a single line, and MM mentions that the dude's got a love sausage when seeing him on camera, but that's before he almost gets strangled by his dick.
So basically he just makes a cameo, nothing else.

Stormfront is revealed to be pretty much the same thing as her comic version, just gender swapped, and better at hiding her racism. She is the wife of the scientist who cooked up V back for the Nazis, instead of just a random Hitlerjugend. She looks up to Homelander like a soul mate and wants him to lead an army of V'd up people and cleanse the world of inferior races. Homelander then kisses her (he wanted to kill her before the reveal scene) so he probably likes the idea.

I am once again visited by the thought of Doctor Strange 2. Will it ever be made? Will it be good (well written)? I don't know, want to know, and yet afraid to think about it.
Dr. Strange was about the only one of the recent marvel capeshit movies that I genuinely liked.
Hated how he was used in the big crossover movies.

The whole "I have foreseen the one and only timeline where we succeed and thus things must go as such" is such contrived writer bullshit.
The writing in capeshit movies usually is.

He died as he lived: not aging.
Watched the Cloverfield trilogy the last few days.

First movie is... a monster movie but with that goddamn stupid "shaky hand cam" style like the Blair Witch project. I consider this a horrible idea, especially when I was hoping for a monster movie. It's not bad as a movie though, there's suspense, catastrophe and bloodshed. I just don't like this direction style. And the movie kind of has no ending whatsoever.

Second movie (Cloverfield lane) is much better, and makes for a good thriller, even if it is somewhat predictable. The aliens in the end kind of ruin the movie sadly, they should've played a bigger role earlier on. Goodmans character could've had proper radio and some cameras set up too in his bunker, not just a VHF radio that wouldn't detect anything. The apocalypse scenario of it all should have been more emphasized, because without that the ending felt really out of place. The main character goes from a fashion designer to fighting aliens with Molotov cocktails in a span of ten minutes.

Third movie was a PG-13 version of Event Horizon but with all logic removed and the supposedly highly trained astronauts unable to look at the stars to determine where they are. And the entire twist ending was twice as out of place as in the previous movie and made me laugh out loud for a minute. It could have been better if they give it a better explanation as to why they are dealing with unexplainable phenomena, and, again, properly show what is happening earthside instead of just leaving it as a retarded twist in the last scene.

Over all, the second movie felt the best, the first was good but not to my liking, and the third was something that has been done before and done better.
Maybe they should finally make a version which is about actually fighting the monsters.
