Read House of Suns if you haven't. It's his best book, IMO.

I thought it was an okay movie but I also don't give a poo poo about star wars. What annoys me is that they have a literal universe to work with and create something new but they keep on using things from the original trilogy to drive the nostalgia factor.

I feel like mandalorian is heading in the same direction.
I hate 7 because of this. The first five minutes seemed really interesting and then it was like, "No, lol, that's not the movie you're getting. Enjoy another rehash of 4."

westworld was a moderately interesting idea that got turned by s3 into setups for a bunch of incredibly unimpressive "epic moments" that are all dumb as hell if you think about them for more than 5 seconds
So basically the same as season 1.

Memento is the only one where the stupid gimmicky structure even remotely contributes to the movie in a positive way. It's honestly also one of the few cases where a twist ending is actually good and thought provoking.

I hated the first but honestly I didn't really like the LOTR movies either.

Peter Jackson's King Kong was a million times worse though.

You have to wait at least 1 week before filing a missing scene report, so the investigation hasn't even started yet.

mcu poo poo is extremely samey structurally and at no point in any individual movie’s character development or narrative matter because they’ll hit the reset button for the overall arc at a drop
This is one thing that I hate in sequels in general (not limited to marvel movies). If a character learns some lesson and grows in the first movie, you can't just reset that and do the exact same thing over again in the second movie, because that ruins the first movie.

Trying to explain that would be like trying to explain the economics of Harry Potter or something equally stupid.

Dear scifi thread, nothing about the world of harry potter actually sense if you think about it. It's all just written to be whimsical and based on what JK Terfling needed to happen in the story at any given time.

It's meaningless to start analyzing it and that was my point in comparing John Wick to it. I absolutely wasn't trying to start a harry potter derail and you should all be ashamed.

the magicians was really bad. the premise sounded cool but the delivery was joss whedon bullshit at best, torchwood or something at worse. it was so bad

it's awesome that most people seem to have turned on joss whedon finally. now i can talk about how terrible he is without folks tripping over themselves to defend his poo poo and i like it a lot
I didn't like The Magicians but at least it sort of seems to have some minimal self awareness of the fact that it's dumb, which I think puts it slightly ahead of Joss Whedon shows.

Just watch the miniseries to get the story first and then don't bother watching the movie because even though it's decent, the miniseries is better anyway.

I'm just imagining a parallel universe where the people who made Friends had to keep remaking friends a thousand times because they couldn't make anything else successful and this rear end in a top hat has the exact same video but with a flowchart of all 37 friends timelines.

this is like the best bit of how the trilogy continued. he becomes unimaginably powerful but it turns out to be in a context fully created and controlled by the opposition. making it not quite worthless, but kind of inconsequential since your actual goal involves dissolving that power structure.
This is less "the best bit of how the trilogy continued" and more "a fundamental flaw in the first movie that made it impossible to make sequels that didn't suck."
