Open Thread: You know the rules.

UPDATE:

Its name is what it is, a completely, 100% accurate title. It’s a perfect 13th Doctor parody. He clearly got ahold of Jay Exci clearly and obviously got a hold of Chris Chibnall’s playbook.

    I just saw a Paramount Plus trailer for a HALO show to be streamed. According to your research gnomes, how woke is it gonna be?

    About Spider-Man No Way Home:
    1)I have to admit a certain morbid curiosity for the return of Maguire and his villains (and even Kirsten Dunst, if she’s got a cameo); not enough to actually give any money to Disney, of course. Guess I’m not completely immune to nostalgia-baiting.
    2)Nevertheless, my interest isn’t high enough to bring me to watch the movie from beginning to end, even on the pirates’ bay: the current main cast disgusts me on a physical level (and it’ll be oh-so-good to see at least one of them croak). A few selected scenes will do just fine.
    3)Oh, Garfield and his villains are in this too, I guess.
    4)This is the most desperate thing the MCU has ever done, and seems to prove that Tom Holland is not as popular as they’d like us to think. It will certainly make money, but story-wise it’ll be a clusterf**k of epic proportions, and certainly won’t be the beginning of a new direction for superhero movies, so the decline will continue.

    Watching the first episode of Wheel of Time.

    Spoilers so if you hate yourself enough to watch this it’s your own fault.

    First Egwene has a giant tomato of a nose with what I swear has to be a wart the size of my fist. Second none of the secondary characters look like themselves from the book. Third, I guess I should just expect this by now, but what is the deal with inserting various races in with every single fantasy show? If a village is European inspired, you can be sure of various shades of brown. If it is Indian, oriental, native American, African inspired you can be sure it will be monochrome.

      Fantasy shows? They do it in shows that are supposed to be set in the real world’s past as well!
      There’s an episode in Moffat’s last Doctor Who season where they go to Victorian London, and the companion (a black dyke, natch) notes that “it’s more colorful than you usually see in movies” or somesuch; the Doctor answers with “So was Jesus; history is a whitewash”. And just to put the cherry on top of this brazen lie, I remember an interview by Moffat some time later (yes, I actually went looking for those; I got over it) where he states something like “We know Victorian London wasn’t really that diverse, but we’re hoping to summon that ideal world by showing it here”.
      So, diverse races in fantasy and historical fiction? Just a different breed of Uncle Screwape’s “materialist magician”.

      I’ve watched all 3 episodes. I believe they cast well for the 3 boys. And Moiraine and Lan and Nynaeve. Nynaeve just works as an angry emotional black woman, driven by emotion and not logic, and angry with a chip on her shoulder most of the time.
      The actress playing Egwene can actually act. But she is NOT anywhere near pretty enough to be so attractive that top notch alphas cannot help but stare at her.

      They are going full woman power in this movie. Women’s Circle runs Two Rivers. No mention of the Village Council at all. The tinkers are led by Ilya rather than her husband Rael. Boys are overpowered by women (non-channelers).
      They make Thom Merrilin look like a grifter.
      And the biggest pile of dog crap is what they’ve done with Mat’s backstory. Abell Cauthon is a womanizing drunk, his mother a drunken shrew. Mat himself steals from friends and is a jerk before he makes it to Shadar Logoth.
      At least the Aes Sedai are looking like total bi+ches, the Red Ajah at least.
      And bye bye to the 3 boys’ innocence.
      Stupid as Mat’s backstory is, they screwed up Perrin’s even more.
      Rand is the only one who has stayed relatively intact, minus the fevered ramblings from his father Tam.

        So it is another books I like down the drain. Thank you, forces of progress.

        There’s certainly a place for an average woman in shows. Not everyone has to be super hot. Rand grew up with her his whole life, and expected they would be married. As long as Egwene isn’t written like some raving beauty that men are enthralled by, it should be fine.

        I had to laugh at the Whitecloak burning an Aes Sedai at the stake. And how did you capture her without getting ripped apart, may I ask? I guess building up the Whitecloaks to be more of a threat makes sense.

        The female Darkfriend was a bit of an eye-roll. Oh no Rand, you’re locked in a small room with a 5’2″ woman! What to do? The guy breaks the door down to run away? Try just slapping her.

      ” …what is the deal with inserting various races in with every single fantasy show? ”
      .
      IMHO The Wheel of time Tv series proves that multiculturalism doesn’t work.
      .
      If you watch carefully, there is one thing that you do not see in this ‘fantasy multicultural society’ : Biracial kids.
      .
      That’s right: Nary a biracial kid to be seen in the Wheel of time world.
      .
      The romances of the lead characters must be the first time biracial nookie was made in the history of the village they live in.
      And these romances ended in one big disaster, and the lead romance is definitely on the rocks.
      Maybe their parents really knew best? After all, if you look at the racial makeup of the village, all their parents and ancestors had obviously exclusively procreated within their own race.
      .
      Thank you Amazon for finally telling the truth for once.

    hilariously, Doomcack is claiming that he “reported” KrazyKathy’s contract renewal months ago and that this is yet another example of “Doomcock was right”.
    .
    you just had to watch one of those ludicrous +4 hrs FridayNightTights livestreams to hear him say that.
    .
    nah, i’m not wasting that much time on Dictor.

    I can’t wait for Pelosi to have to say “the Speaker recognizes the Honorable Representative for Wisconsin, Kyle Rittenhouse.” If she’s not in jail first. Either is good.

      it’s going to be a couple of years until Kyle is 25.

      He’s only 18. By the time he gets to Congress Pelosi will have crumbled into dust – possibly while she’s standing in the House.

    so, at the intersection of Entertainment News and Kenosha, Pedro Pascal memorializes the pedophile that Kyle defended himself from.
