Theres something kinda funny to me about Marvels 'What If...?' having the same level of animation competency as 2003's Scream of the Shalka.

Anyway other than finding Captain Carter incredibly on brand for me (insert Futurama snu-snu reference here) this has mostly been sub-par so far but as my partner is digging it I'll play along for now.

Also rewatched THE TERROR for a third time at work and it sill owns, probably the best horror show of the last decade.

For a second I was convinced I was going to be alone in thinking Malignant absolutely blew chunks so I'm glad to see more folks coming out in support of the truth.

James Wan is and always has been atrociously over represented in major motion horror pictures.

This is so wrong I am now wondering if Endgame is actually a work of genius and possibly the best film ever made.

"Breathe on the nostrils of a horse"

Alien Covenant is rubbish.

I've always loved all four films but Alien3 has maybe aged the worst out of them.

I refuse to accept that there are four Alien films. Or six. Or however many horrible things they’ve made now.

Covenant is good actually.

I'm not inviting anyone to dissuade me on this, its the truth.

Please note, my disdain for the house of mouse is only 90% a bit.

What's a Stan?

UrbanDictionary: A crazed and or obsessed fan. The term comes from the song Stan by Eminem. The term Stan is used to describe a fan who goes to great lengths to obsess over a celebrity.

Absolutely more appropriate to Twitter than private forums but man, the MCU has some real dangerous whack jobs in its fandom.

While we're here I might as well give my thoughts on this latest entry. A perfectly serviceable time let down by some jarring moments of fan wankery and a pretty poor score from West. Had my hopes up from the opening sequence but the rest didn't quite come together. Still probably one of the most fun i've had with one of these since the first Guardians.

Sorry to disappoint the stans but I didn't hate this one, it was fine.

Anyway I rewatched EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT today and it's probably in my top 5 of the 21st century so far and it's half as long as Endgame, this has been a PSA.

MCU Roulette ... just one more try ... nobody has luck this bad ...

'Peels off the Iron Man labels from the generic action doll, replaces it with a Dr. Strange label.'

Disney: Hey kids watch our new content.

I might have mentioned it a few times....

I remain baffled as to why you keep watching them. Surely, at some point in the 25+ movie franchise you must have thought: these aren’t for me…?

Alas its part of my job to know the deal with these fricking things.

I take no joy in this, I would switch places with any of the saints in their moments of agony any time.

I watched Infinity War and Endgame back-to-back and it's not clear why the second one would be regarded as so woeful compared to the first.

I mean, I think its awful in MANY capacities beyond its comparisons to Infinity War (a thoroughly mediocre is enjoyable experience) due to just how thuddingly, blindingly, dreary and tiresome it is as a piece of "art"* unto itself.

*I use this term with the loosest of meanings when it comes to the house of mouse.

ENDGAME truly is woeful, and i'm glad some of even the most sycophantic Disney stans are in agreement on that front. Just a turgid, boring, loathsome slog.

Mad Max '79 still reigns for me as the best in the series. Theres something so...palpable, about its world. The all encroaching sensation the world is just about on the cusp of a massive social-political change. Like some great cosmic horror is happening just off screen and even out in the sticks people have been feeling its influence for some time.

I enjoy the camp pomposity of The Road Warrior but really Fury Road is now just a better, slicker, more refined version of the same concept.

Beyond Thunderdome I at least admire for just being thoroughly bizarre in its intentions.

Gonna get lynched for this but it's probably my least favourite of the MM films and at times embodies some of Millers worst habits as a director. Still a fun time in the first and final acts with a lot of drag in between.

Tony Todd climbed into the husk of my skin and whispered sweet nothings until my flesh curled and died.
The only legacy horror movie from the last 20 years that actually matters.
