update: Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog is nostalgic, but at least the first few episodes are kinda bad (because theyre for children in the early 90s)

i'll hang onto them for the kids to watch when theyre older lol

I liked the mando show but not enough to remember that thereís new seasons

Andor looked really good as a behind the scenes no 6 heroes/families to save the universe kinda show, which imo Star Wars suffers from massively

Solo was bad but the worst part was sitting through it and it felt like it was about to turn a corner and be good, and then that never happened

turns out that both firing the director with a solid vision for what they want to do AND pushing the actor you want to base the movie around to a drug overdose is a bad way to end up with a coherent movie in the end

hamill is really good at doing crazy weirdos so im glad they went in that direction with Los Ultimos Jedi. I wish there was a full recording as him as mozart in amadaus because that was probably a great show.

One of my favorite examples of institutionalized chauvinism in academia.

Men, for decades: "obviously these figures have some sexual meaning or were used in fertility rites, because they're naked ladies and the men who carved them gave them huge honkers and a dump truck rear end. I'm horny for the statue"

A woman: "no, they're just self-portraits done by a woman looking down at her own body."

The Knick is an awesome show he made about 1900s NYC doctors staring Clive Owen. The techno soundtrack makes the whole production feel modern and vaguely cyberpunk, which matches how these characters feel about their own changing world

Doesn't Justin Roiland do the voices for, uh, both Rick and Morty, and like half the other characters in the show

are they just gonna get an impersonator?

imo they should kill the current Rick and morty with the new Rick and morty voice guys and then have them comment about how annoying those twoís voices were

I will also accept r&m having a different voice every episode

a kind of lovely realization i had a few months ago is with my latest lap into older films that i can now say that i've pretty much seen every notable movie from like 1973-2005. like sure there are like hellraiser sequels and whatever i havent gotten to but for the most part i can confidently say that ive seen almost every mildly notable movie from those eras. and its kind of wild to me that many of those movies will never have any kind of modern equivalent made. like heat for example, or like the hunt for red october. hell even a theater comedy like superbad that just absolutely swept pop culture is never really gonna happen in that way again. movies like die hard or terminator 2 were lightning in a bottle that just doesn't happen like that anymore.


like as a grown up i am appreciating the gently caress out of miramax's role in 80s and 90s cinema in terms of getting out movies that weren't AAA megablockbuster affairs. marvel movies and franchising have absolutely fuckin wrecked the curve on cool mid range movies. and yeah i guess netflix and hulu et all are publishing those midmarket films but none of them have been GOOD. like 5 years of hulu featured films and ive yet to watch one that sat in my brain the way dogma or fast and the furious or elephant. like i honestly have a hard time thinking of films released in the past decade because of just how generic everything has felt and seemed.

I would argue Fury Road and Terminator 2 are cut from the same cloth, in that FR was the first action movie I had seen in ages that I left the theatre all smiles

has anyone done that besides Lucas? and he only did it because he was so gobsmacked by the possibilities of CGI compared to 70s practical effects and no one was able to tell him it was a terrible idea and force him to stop

I thought Lucas did that to be able to release under Lucasfilm and cut his ex wife out of any earnings on the original releases

I was thinking about showing my kids Ponyo, but I couldnít remember if it and the other Miyazaki movies were 2 and 4 yo friendly. based on this, weíll watch it this week! :)
