    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    The finale was basically what The Avengers was when it came out. Maybe not the deepest story, but a fun fireworks show. I guess the shorter runtime and all the actors recording their parts at different times meant that there couldn't be any spontaneous moments of character interactions and said...

    "Marvel on Disney+" Pre-Release News & Discussion, Part 5 (Spoilers)

    There have been more lighthearted Daredevil runs and MCU has had more serious movies, so I don't personally think the tone would be a problem. My concern with a MCU Daredevil movie would be that they haven't done a pure street-level movie yet. Homecoming comes closest, but that's also bigger...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    Man, that episode suuuuuuuuuuuuuucked. I knew to expect this, since I'm like the one person who hated Ragnarok and this episode was clearly just going to be more of that, but I had no idea they would tune it up to eleven. 99% of the jokes fell on their face and even taking into account the...

    C&C - Rick & Morty - Season Five Talkback

    I decided to wait until I had seen every episode of this season, before making any comments, since with previous season I jumped to a lot of premature conclusions when trying to give my thoughts episode by episode. Fair warning that I haven't rewatched any of these episodes (not because of their...

    Could Spider-Man Unlimited have worked?

    I think Unlimited could have been executed better than the finished product was. The show had a big case of trying to have its cake and eat it too, with both putting Spider-Man in a very atypical situation for the character and still doing all the classic "Peter trying to have a normal life...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    I probably should admit that I'm a fan of the original Marvel Zombies comics, before saying anything. I understand that they are very divisive and definitely not for everyone, but this is clearly trying to be a spiritual adaptation of them, so some comparison is fair IMO. I was suprised how...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    This episode had some nifty animation (especially on all the dark creatures Strange summoned and absorbed) and I do give it credit for having the first downright downer ending, but I can't help, but to nitpick one detail and it is kinda an important one in a series where the whole premise is...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    That might be my favorite episode thus far. Really cool and grim murder mystery, and because it is a standalone story they didn't have to hold any punches. I called the final reveal during Black Widow's death scene, but that just means that the clues made sense and it was great to see Douglas...

    "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" (Netflix CGI Animated Series) News & Discussion (Spoilers)

    '87 show was too childish in comparison to the Mirage comics, 4Kids' show took itself too seriously in comparison to '87 show, 2012 show was too kiddie after more serious 4Kids show, Rise was "in name only" adaptation as a whole etc. All of those things were said by people and in some corners...

    "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" (Netflix CGI Animated Series) News & Discussion (Spoilers)

    Yeah, no. Every single TMNT cartoon to date has been "the worst thing to happen to the franchise" to a vocal section of the fanbase (not always the same one, but still). Even arguably the most iconic one (in terms of presence in the popculture), the '87 series, is seen as the thing that ruined...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    I personally thought Gillan did fine. Sure, her performance was maybe little understated, but I think that was by design, since they were going for that "Film Noir Femme Fatale" archetype. Compared to previous episode, at least there weren't any downright clunkily delivered lines like Sebastian...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    I enjoyed this episode quite a lot. The story was good time and with T'Challa Star-Lord they had pretty decent balance of him being more serious than Peter Quill, but still more comedic than he was in the main timeline. I did, however, raise an eyebrow over Korath and Thanos. Yeah yeah...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    Not only that, but the guns were realistic/shot bullets and we see characters drinking alcohol. I didn't need this show to be all "HARDCORE & ONLY FOR ADULTS!!", but it is nice that, besides showing on-screen blood (at least so far), they are allowed to go as far as other MCU projects in terms...

    "Marvel's What If...?" Season One Talkback (Spoilers)

    Man, after years of Loebverse, it feels so good to have a Marvel Animated project where the whole animation budget wasn't some poor intern's lunch money.

    "The Suicide Squad" Feature Talkback (Spoilers)

    After all the hype, this was kinda disappointing. It was decent action movie with fun characters, but brought nothing new to the superhero movie genre and it probably would have been better with one or two less action scenes (when the "Starro-Zombies" rose up, I felt so tired).
