  1. This was totally charming, and it’s about as narratively neat as possible considering all of the moving parts. There’s a Trekkiness to some of it that I don’t recall seeing quite as much of in the other cosmic movies. I tapped out on Ms. Marvel after a couple of episodes, but Iman Vellani is delightful here. I like Nia DaCosta. I’m happy she made a solid movie, and I don’t think anyone’s going to blame her for the box office amidst the strike and all of the Marvel Studios hullabaloo in the media right now. The stuff they set up at the end was cool, but it’s kind of like speculating about AEW booking right now where I get fatigued even thinking about what’s next.
  2. No, he turned out to be just another tech dude who had an axe to grind with Stark Industries, and he used drone illusions to appear like he was from another universe. Gee, it seems kind of dumb now that I’m typing it out.
  3. Not going to lie, I want to see Flair strut while he’s doing Edward 40-hands.
  4. The newest episode is probably the darkest, grossest one of the series. It’s more satire about the modern world’s inherent dilemmas regarding ethical consumption than it is laugh-out-loud funny. It’s also perhaps trying a bit too hard to achieve the balance of shock value and poignancy from the early seasons, but it’s definitely unique among the recent episodes, and I didn’t remember there were new voice actors until this very moment. Also considering the subject matter, I’m glad they
  5. We were probably robbed of at least a couple Candy/Martin reteams in the vein of the 90s Lemmon and Mattheau movies.
  6. Hawks and Wayne reused the central premise of Rio Bravo in El Dorado and Rio Lobo, to the extent those movies are considered remakes, so Carpenter was working with a very established western trope in Precinct 13.
  7. Stephen King totally ripped off the ending of The Dark Tower series from the Mighty Max series finale.
  8. I always think of Moll as Slan the Cat, the Kurgan Lite antagonist from The Highlander series pilot. and he was an all-time children’s action comedy movie goon.
  9. I want an OG United Artists faction; Toni teams up with Serpentico doing a Douglas Fairbanks/Erroll Flynn swashbuckler gimmick where he’s swinging around on random ropes into walls.
  10. When they changed names in 2002, there was a popular tribute video going around called WWF As We Know It that used Blurry. WWE managed to nearly copyright strike it out of existence, but it left an impression during early torrenting and YouTube. https://archive.org/details/rip-wwf-first-and-original-version- Edit: @Elsalvajeloco beat me to it, by like a lot.
  11. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Guilty by Suspicion (it was on HBO constantly for years) but Scorsese has a significant supporting role as a friend of De Niro’s character.
  12. I remember Milos Forman popping up as Jack Nicholson’s friend in Heartburn and being confused. Honestly, if Polanski had stayed out of trouble he would have probably been in a lot of movies. M. Night was definitely filled with false confidence because of Tarantino and Kevin Smith’s 90s runs as directors who cast themselves.
  13. I know Scorsese is a fish in Shark Tale, but if he hasn’t voiced an owl in something that seems like a missed opportunity.
  14. One of the other things I love about it is how realistic the dialogue is for a ghost story. Every line is someone pointing out something strange or eerie, but for most of the runtime no one actually can bring themselves to say anything about the supernatural out loud. When someone even broaches it the other person ignores it and talks past them.
  15. That’s tricky. He definitely loves booze and women the same way, but Halloween is a movie in the world of Season of the Witch.
  16. The first time Juice said that, I thought he said pubic zirconium, and I was disappointed that it wasn’t a running bit.
  17. It’s the closest answer to the question, “What if Val Lewton made a Scooby Doo movie?” Also
  18. Juice going over makes booking sense, and he deserves it for sticking his neck out to execute Max’s dumbass idea a couple of weeks ago.
  19. I watched The Fog for the first time in forever, and it was like seeing it for the first time. I could go on about it forever, but I’m preaching to the converted on here. The one observation I can’t let go of is that the relationship between Janet Leigh as the mayor and Nancy Loomis as her aide is 100% the prototype for Leslie Knope and April in Parks and Rec.
  20. When I think of Roundtree, Seven always comes to mind, but I had no recollection of him being the Vice Principal in Brick. He had a great later career being cast in authority figure roles by people who grew up on Shaft.
  21. Until our trip to Spirit Halloween yesterday for the kids’ costumes I hadn’t realized there was a Killer Klowns from Outer Space merchandising bonanza going on this year. Very weird to see those silly scamps now being represented as much as Freddy, Jason, Michael, and Chucky. There was also quite a bit of Mars Attacks merch.
  22. I hope there’s a Christmas Truce supper with the Predator.
  23. I like how Danielson is doing his random bucket list stuff while simultaneously being the stand-in for all of Tony’s leftover booking plans for Punk. It’s such a unique opportunity for him to have during his last full-time year.
  24. DPW getting its roster pruned by WWE? Oh hell yeah. They’re a real promotion now.
  25. Yeah, he sells Immortal Hulkamaniac THC vape pens online.
