    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Venom is a strange one. Not the worst superhero film but I'm perplexed out how it did so well. It could be chinese market expanding all the time allowing mediocre films to become more successful each year? Eg if all those films had been released in a similar time frame their box offices could have been different? And i do think suicide squad made viewers very, very skeptical of future DCU films in the sense that many people believe critics if the say a dc film is bad now. So it got away with it but made it much harder for the following films to succeed. To be honest my enjoyment of a dc film has gelled pretty well with critical consensus. So reviews of aquaman being dumb fun but lacking depth sounds about right to me (although reviews are having far too much fun with sea related puns)

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    In the uk it's up against spiderverse which seems to be getting the best reviews. I think bumblebee and aquaman will both suffer at the hands of badly received connected films. He didn't save Justice league and that also starred wonder woman. So unless the current batman and superman are incredibly toxic i doubt having "guy from game of thrones/Stargate" will save. All the reviews I've read suggest it's fun. Maybe a lower tier marvel film good but without the exceptional good will of the marvel brand. Out of the 3 films bumblebee is most likely the one I'll skip. I've heard complaints of it basically being ET and i'm pretty confident that the G1 robots in the trailer is probably the same duration they'll get in the whole film eg it's just there to get nostalgia fans on board. Although if i have the time i will still try and support because it would be a shame for them to return to awful bay movies .
  3. Keep forgetting it's the "new year" special so they can claim dr who airs an episode in 2019.
  4. Maybe the xmas one will count within the production "season". A lot of people think the title is missing "...of the daleks" I think it's more that my viewing tastes have changed as opposed to the show being "worse". I don't really begrudge the show for not being for me. And it is acceptable background TV. The problem at the moment is that British politics has all the twists and turns i need at the moment - it even provides end of world (UK) scenarios.
  5. Same thing has happened with me as far back as the Matt Smith era. I've usually finished them and drunken xmas haze is probably a good time to catch up

    Watership Down 2018

    It seems most enjoy the cast and the story at least which is probably more important.

    Watership Down 2018

    It seems the critics echo my feelings regarding the animation in the trailer.

    MCU - X

    I guess this is really establishing him as cheerful. I guess his daughter might have survived which would be something for him to be happy about. That or he is in possession of info meaning he knows they aren't dead, dead. It feels like avengers 4 will need to spend sometime with Scott resolving his post credits scene. It'd be nice if he has a key role given he was one of few characters not to appear in last film (likewise for hawkeye)

    That could work. That seems overly sleight if hand for a trailer but also a possibility

    Possibly. I think most people would be a bit more assertive but i guess besides Spider-Man he is the character most in awe of captain America and co. I guess most people would be submissive to them. At least it's not the case of everyone doing comedy routines.

    I thought the trailer was fine. In an ideal world i wouldn't see any of the dusted characters until i was at the cinema so i was glad none if them were to be seen in the trailer. The only thing that seemed a bit off was Scott Lang who still seemed far too down to earth and chipper for someone who has lost his family and witnessed an apocalyptic event. Everyone else thankfully seemed to be reacting in a proportional way.

    Anime

    There's definitely a lot of fantastical elements to it like a mild version of "pan's Labyrinth". I think you're right in the psychological scarring of the Japanese public upon defeat. They'd been led to believe they were unstoppable so for their emperor to surrender must have been pretty devastating for them. I've often heard in discussions over the use of nuclear weapons that without the Japanese population would have fought on until the bitter end resulting in many more deaths. Although i noticed the film made a point of saying Russia had declared war on them at the same time and apparently that had as much to do with their surrender as the nuclear threat. Apparently it was a firm belief of Japan that the nukes were used as a prelude to cold war with Russia. I suspect there's sone truth in that.
  13. It's odd that shy and temple aren't appearing as it sounded from his reread he really enjoyed those characters.

    In this corner of the world is a beautiful look at an aspect of world war 2 I've never observed before - japanese civilians. The way the frag explosions in the sky were portrayed as psint bombs was wonderful. It's also very understated which makes the dramatic moments very effective. The ending choked me up when leaving the film on a surprisingly upbeat ending. Also a question regarding a character

    Well, i imagine incredibles 2 is thr other serious contender which is also a Disney superhero filming. I would probably have balked at the lego movie being nominated a few agos until i actually saw it.
