Out of the Blue

Well the Better Call Saul finale didn't disappoint. I saw a quote from Vince Gilligan saying that both this and Breaking Bad were pieced together on the fly as they went along. This is pretty surprising considering how well planned both shows always seemed. Regardless of the process, both were masterpieces from beginning to end. I'm certainly willing to happily remain on Gilligan's Island to see what he comes up with next.

I didn't think Black Panther was bad, I thought it was pretty standard Marvel fair. But I certainly didn't understand why people thought it should get the Best Film Oscar.
Wasn't a fan of either Panther or Ms. Marvel. Thought it was me: hero movie burnout. But then I saw Spider-Man and Ragnarok and came to the conclusion that those former movies were just Mediocre, as Immotan Joe would say.

Same things went through my mind. The last Spider-man movie was very good, imo. When the Amazing Spider-man Spider-man redeemed himself by saving this MJ, a tear almost ran down my cheek lol! Could've been the whiskey though, though it was a really good moment.

BP was better of the two, but not great.
But I thought the first Dr. Strange was bland, and having just watched the second on a plane, I found it pretty damn boring.

How opinions can differ, huh? 🤯 I find it hard to name a more uninspiring movie, although Black Panther was pretty shit too.

That last Dr Strange movie is the worst of its kind: Let me hire the handful of actors that movie uses, I'll get a few cheap Indians that'll do the CGI and I could replicate that absolute shit.

Raimi's directing in the last Dr Strange movie was masterful. No amateur would be capable of that level of work.
I felt he did a good job, had a lot of his signature touches. I just felt the story could have been better.

i'm interested to see how THE MENU does at the box office. this seems like the exact kind of movie that should fail if all the predictions of the death of movie theaters are true - kind of quirky black comedy, light on special effects, no huge names.

i personally think the death of movies thing (kind of like remote work) is overblown and still love going to theaters.

I feel like theater is needing exactly what you described there. Cinema, for me, died when it got zerged by the Marvel CGI infested garbage. That last Dr Strange movie is the worst of its kind: Let me hire the handful of actors that movie uses, I'll get a few cheap Indians that'll do the CGI and I could replicate that absolute shit. And yet people walk away with it.

Today, Cinema is basically some Marvel movie or some Liam Neeson movie. 😂

"perfect Hollywood cleavage shot"? More like a minor cleavage shot, but the context does add some spice.

The Better Caul Saul finale was fantastic, every character arc satisfied in my mind and a perfect ending.

Ugh, it's climate change. hello?
the original theory of global warming was proven wrong years ago. and before that ('70s) global cooling was taking us to a new ice age, and the ozone would take centuries to heal (mostly good now).

Just a reminder, Science is always just "best guess based on current data". it is rarely 100% fact (will never change no matter what).

Global Warming is a part of climate change
the 70s study you reference were made to discredit reality by oil corps
Ozone layer is not healed, not even close

So 3 wrong things in 1 post, as usual.

Global warming and global cooling can coexist. Global warming is just a temperature average over the globe. Global cooling is what happens in some specific places as wind currents and ocean currents shift. Still you have the ice melting at accelerated rates, ice which reflects sunlight away from the earth, leading to a spiral. There is nothing exact about any of this, but it isn't like we have a second world to fall back on if we screw this one up.

Global warming was proven wrong... by whom?

And the hole in the ozone layer still exists... It's expected to recover by 2050 or 2060. Amazing what happens when we all work together to solve a problem that we've identified.
