I thought Max Kellerman left First Take to go do coordinated dance videos on TikTok/IG Reels?
and Ben Simmons is gonna find himself broke and out of a job for violation of contract after being fined to death. If he really wanted to show his worth, I agree with what I heard on the radio in that he should have played for his country in the Olympics and display how he CAN shoot, and no longer afraid to show how he developed that part of his game on the court in an In-Game situation.
Wiggins might find himself traded if he can't play home games. **** Around and find yourself Simmons'd soon bro. But something tells me he end up taking it after missing a few home games and getting side-eyed by teammates as he watches one or more of them start taking his play time in the away games too.
For the record, I don't give a damn if you're vaccinated or not, as long as you exercise caution (wear a fucking mask) and respect the situation at hand (stay home if you sick) (yeah, I know most don't care one way or another)
The opening scene seemed like a Lifetime Channel horror movie w/ a bit of an effects budget. The acting was just atrocious, and the way it ended... I was seriously hoping that it was someone in the movie watching a bad horror movie... but nope, that was the intro to the movie. And then long tv movie like intro credits.... it was almost too much to look past.
If I had watched this in the theater, I would've tried to get my money back at this point.
Afterwards, it becomes "decent" for a moment, but still strong "Lifetime Channel" vibes being given off.
But once you get into the good stuff.... it's fucking ridiculous, but damn was it kinda crazy. The scenes starting with The Cop in the apartment confronting the killer all the way through the police station was a fun ride. It was insanely ridiculous, violent and gory. But DIVES back into Lifetime Channel/Hallmark Channel levels of cringe once they get in hospital at the end.
Overall, this movie is bad. But if you can sit through it, you'll definitely enjoy parts of it.
I know everyone has their reasons, but the US needs to get it's **** together. those Non-US residents should say "I didn't want to go there right now anyway!!" then take off to some actual nice destination instead.
and I'm not sure if the EU/UK has it's **** together either, but I also just saw this report....
I've never read the Hawkeye comics, but I wanna guess this will probably be heavily influenced by that "Hawkguy" Matt Fraction run that I always see people reference.
Yes it is Christmas themed, and YES there is a Captain America Musical on Broadway, and yes it picks up on the Ronan storyline as well, so that was not just dropped and forgotten. There are a lot of people that came back and realized their loved ones were murdered by Ronan for likely stepping up to fill a void in whatever underworld **** they have going on.
and to reiterate, this looks like it's gonna be a FUN Xmas/Holiday Adventure.
If there was a need for a full 42 minute episode, and then an follow up episode, and possibly even one more (to just make it a full 2 hour movie-sode) it was this episode.
Really, an extra 10 minutes probably could've wrapped it up, but this was so interesting, I want to see them flesh it out. I've never read Marvel Zombies, but Feige need to go ahead and start green lighting some extra Marvel Animation projects, and I nominate this episode for a mini-series. Of course we would be missing Boseman for T'Challa, but I hope someone can mimic his voice and style as well as the guy who did Spider-Man in place of Holland.
Part of what makes this Zombie-sode so interesting is the fact that the Zombies keep enough of themselves to still use their attributes, accessories, and powers. I saw a few snippets of the comic panels, and they actually retain their personalities in full as along as they aren't starving and giving into the "HUNGER". In the end of this ep, you could see Wanda was a little devastated over the loss of Vision.
What sucks though, is that even after they escape... it wasn't over. Zombie Thanos was coming for the Mind stone. I REALLY wanted to see how that end up playing out. Does he snap and wish everyone back to normal? Is he still on a mission to rid the universe of half of it's life? is he even after an additional stone still? Or just more food.
The fight scenes were easily Best of MCU, as that whole bus scene as A+ I really want more of the fight club, and maybe with Ten Rings under new management, maybe we get more of that?
Trevor Slattery cameo/appearance I honestly thought was kinda funny at times, but overstayed it's welcome. His ability to somehow understand a mythical/fantasy creature was bizarre, and for that creature to be able to guide them through the forest when you gotta move that quick was also kinda crazy, but I'm not trying to nitpick the details, as there were a few things around this part of the movie that can be nitpicked. This was fun and I look forward to more Shang Chi, Xialing and the Ten Rings.
Shang Chi's blend of Mom and Dad's style to handle the Dweller in the Darkness dragon was a nice touch, as he used the rings in a completely different style that his dad. Where Mandarin used it more as shock gloves, whips and a shield, Shang Chi used it as a fluid extension of himself and a barrier. That style is gave him the power to beat that soul sucking dragon in the first place.
As for the first mid credit scene... who is the rings signaling? Fin Fang Foom? Something else?
One Long Week variant, the Fury focused comic that came out to connect how Ironman, Thor, and Hulk from Phase1 all happened in the same week. Only things didn't go nearly as well as what we saw back in 2008.
I'd put this one behind last weeks Star Lord T'Challa, and just above Captain Carter.
What If...!? Captain Carter took the SS serum instead. I have to say the first episode was alright. Felt a little rushed. I still think I'd prefer the What If!? we got to see Cap return all the stones and live out his life with Peggy instead. But that's just me.
What If...!? T'Challa was kidnapped by the Ravagers instead This episode I like ALOT better. The universe genuinely seemed like a better place. Star Lord actually made a difference and created a name and legacy for himself. Now Chadwick will be missed on Earth and in Space, and when people refer to the Sacred Time Line Star Lord, everyone will be like "Who!!?"
Good Guy Thanos, and him trying to repeatedly justify his plan for "genocide" was a great running gag. so much to like about this 2nd episode... like Quill working at Dairy Queen. LOL
