recall the first Ant-Man trailer which also made the movie look as generic as possible

I really enjoyed the first season of Love, Death + Robots. The episodes I liked I really liked, some I was meh on.

I really loved the anthology series and am excited for season 2 a lot

I like how for like an hour after I saw it I thought ďEh, another tv show I suppose.Ē And then decided to read the comments and learned this is a movie. Like a TV movie? Everything seems subpar. But whatever thatís Marvel for you.

Apparently Disney decided if people love TV so much letís bring itís level to the big screen.

The Shang-Chi looks (as in purely visually) like all the other current MCU media. I initially thought it was gonna be a tv show like wandavision.

Also is that Tony Leung's voice over? I am not that familiar with his English voice. Because he is one of the reasons I'm interested in this.

Apparently Olivia Colman just signed up for some Marvel thing? I really hope weíre experiencing the nadir of this era of Hollywood. Itís so depressing to see how much talent is being absorbed like a blackhole by Disney for its various brand extensions.

The first season had some really intense uncanny valley situations.

Comes out May 14, and they're also promising Vol 3 in 2022.

Technically this is MCU gatekeeping, but instead of preventing people from entering the gate, it's trying to contain the MCU within it to protect the public.

Jordan Blum wrote and produced on Community & American Dad, so there's that, and I'l always have a soft spot for stop motion. Nothing in that really made me laugh, but I'm in a pretty poo poo mood this week and that is a painfully stock trailer.

Movies and tv are congealing increasingly into a unified slop that consistently embodies the worst aspects of both.

I don't know, I haven't kept up with the Conjuring-verse since the first film, but this seems wildly exploitative and somewhat irresponsible. It feels like a satanic panic film from the perspective of the crazy Christians.

All those movies are wildly exploitative, like Ed and Lorraine Warren are legendary scam artists. Never before have I seen a more ludicrous use of "based on a true story"

I've had enough heartfelt conversations and 15 minute boat fixing montages and sappy music scoring. It's like This is Us with a relatable villain who operates through social media. Ugh.

I do have to admire the sheer brass balls required to make a movie in the Conjuring series about every skeptic's go-to example about why the Warrens weren't just frauds, they were dangerous frauds. If you're gonna make a fictionalized retelling of their adventures, that's the one you absolutely have to gloss over.

The funniest lawsuit was the one arguing over who had rights to their story and part of it involved one of the claimants stating that since ghosts aren't real you can't say it is a true story/based on real life.

I haven't seen any of the movies, but having a vague understanding of the true story, I'm shocked they're not the villains.

Iím hopeful that the trailer for MODOK killed the timing of all the jokes. I think Rick and Marty is funny but avoided the show for years because the advertising gave me a bad impression. MODOK will likely be awful.
