  1. For me it immediately went to the very tropey and obvious "it was actually us all along now I have to go set up everything in the past". The whole "temporal pincer move" bit being used by both the antagonist and protagonist doesn't make much sense if the future does indeed change the past and knows whats already happened. It's very paradoxical they explicitly say they can't come in contact with their past selves, yet JDWs character (I don't like that he doesn't have a name) gets right into a hand to hand fight with himself? I feel like if the universe was going to explode if you come into con
  2. Watched it last night and I have to say I was underwhelmed. I feel like Christopher Nolan dreams up these convoluted plots and presents them as high concept masterpieces. They're visually beautiful and well made, I can't fault the production quality, but the story is just too contrived in trying to be an "intellectual" movie it loses any impact. Every scene in the movie feels disjointed and self serving, and I suppose you can try and say that's part of the time travel rigmarole, but it just made the movie feel empty and a chore to watch.
  3. You know I'm still really impressed by this show after all this time. Tandy and Ty worked really well and had one of the most compelling relationships in the MCU. Season 2 took off strong and leaned into the mystical side of things to great effect. Definitely one of my top 5 Marvel TV seasons. If they could fit them into any future projects I'd be pretty excited to see them again.
  4. I believe they're on the record as giving her basically free reign to make the movie how she wanted it to be made, she wrote the pitch and the -script and directed. Small quote from Variety: “From early on, [Marvel] knew the way I wanted to make this film, how I wanted to shoot,” shared Zhao. “It can’t be hundreds of people standing around. They very much adapted how to run the set the way that I wanted to work. I’m still surrounded by 25 people.”
  5. So the entire plot has actually leaked from some test screenings, I could link it here if you want. It's just the base story elements, so take it with a grain of salt as I'm sure the actual acting, score, and cinematography adds a lot to the viewing experience. It deviates quite a bit from the source material. It's more of a self contained story since a lot of it takes place in the past. It focuses on the core line up of Eternals and Black Knight, don't expect any other heros to show up. Their powers are probably more in line with what's already been shown in the MCU I don't think they'll be s
  6. I have them on laserdisc if you want to upgrade again for the true unadulterated experience I also have both Ewok movies on VHS to really complete the package
  7. I picked up a copy of MP #10 for $16 on Saturday. Got home, went to check what the trends looked like on ebay and I was floored. There's only 6 copies listed and they're all multiple hundreds of dollars. Seems like it hit about 10 days ago and all the cheaper copies disappeared. Glad to be on the right side of all the spec for once so I don't have to try and fight someone for a crummy copy.
  8. Went to the flea market yesterday and stopped at a vendor I'd never seen before. Came home with this nice bundle for the bargain price of $90. also picked up some dollar books to fill in some gaps and a Marvel Two in One #1 for $5.
  9. Adding to that WandaVisions ratings for its' first two episodes, which aired on the same day instead of two seperate weeks like FatWS, got 434 million minutes streamed and was beat out by 5 other shows.
  10. The Ten Rings in the MCU are a global terrorist organization dating all the way back to Iron Man 1 when they were working with Obadiah Stane to kill Tony Stark. The Ten Rings are also physical items Shang Chi's father, Wenwu/The Mandarin, possesses and where he draws his power from as he is the head of the Ten Rings group. In the 1970s Shang Chi's father was Fu Man Chu and not the Mandarin so the Ten Rings weren't really part of his story.
  11. The number one most streamed original show according to the Nielsen ratings on the first two episodes (628 million minutes streamed) better than Wandavision I think
  12. I mean to establish him as a threat wiping out most of the Greek pantheon quick would do the trick. I would say it's probably the majority of the plot though. He could take out some other Egyptian deities beforehand to prep for Moon Knight, maybe the Goddess Bast from Black Panther? There's plenty of gods to pull from in the Marvel universe.
