  1. Laws of physics. Another thing Patty doesn't have a clue about. Although to be fair, neither do JJ Abrams or George Lucas.
  2. They go back to the drawing board with Bashir for season 2 onwards. Even before the internet they knew he did not go down well with fans. He's a much better character from season 2 onwards.
  3. Harsin answered that attempt at trying to look smart!
  4. I went on about it in the Wonder Woman 2 thread. Short version: she was to Wonder Woman 1 what Michael Bay was to the 1st 2007 Transformers. The director who got all the credit, but in reality all the good bits were somebody else's idea. So when given most of the creative control...... And to be honest- having a dad who is a pilot is hardly reason to give a person a whole movie about pilots! We say what she did with pilots and planes in Wonder Woman 2! She clearly hasn't got the foggiest notion about aeroplanes. Not even primary school knowledge.
  5. So we have to be on the service at a particular time of day? Like TV BEFORE VHS?!??! Wow.
  6. It wasn't the brevity of the post, but the use of language which could be considered offensive, for two reasons: 1. What language would you use to describe films which are universally accepted as poor? 2. The use of such language in a thread where the majority of opinions have been positive.
  7. That's a bit too strong, no? Expected better from a writer!
  8. Yeah, I agree with that sentiment, and can come up with an even better reason. It seems a bit Victor Meldrew to be critical of the scene's inclusion I feel.
  9. I don't think it is too difficult to come up with an in-universe reason for the baby marshmallow men popping up at particular moment.
  10. Which Marvel movies have you NOT watched? (I'm assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that you have seen more than you missed).
  11. I think you took South instead of North on the Community board!
  12. Patty Jenkins movie has also been effectively canned. I think with Wonder Woman 2 she has been found out.
  13. Or....... It has done a Silk style origin- what if MJ (or another female classmate) was bitten by the spider instead. Also- I think I now need to check out of this thread to avoid any more spoilers......
  14. Oddly I'm in the opposite camp- that the major criticism I would make of Afterlife is that it follows the plot beats and emotional beats of the 1984 too closely. The 1984 film is a classic and all but if watched through a completely objective 2021 lens then it is a bit dated and slowly paced.
  15. This isn't a dig, just curious- were you alive when the original came out in 1984? At work I'm noticing a significant lack of awareness of the existence of Afterlife amongst those in their 20s (who would otherwise have nerdy credentials), contrasted with a lot of excitement from those in their 40s.
  16. None in that sort of costume design. The closest being Mayday from MC2 (Peter's daughter from alternative future). If I had to guess that's just a gender swapped Tom Holland.
  17. I'm looking forward to what people think of it when they first watch it after it drops on Disney+.
  18. I don't think that particular aspect is what the OP had in mind when they asked if it still holds up!
  19. Is it time for two threads? One UK pace and one US pace? All the best shows have two pace threads......
  20. Thanks for posting that- I honestly didn't know they changed it up. But....... no.
  21. Ha- I thought the same. I was wondering how she got the part the whole time.....
  22. Definitely a Marmite type movie this. I can understand both points of view. But from a purely financial point of view my guess is the majority of the population would find it dull- and it is thus a big gamble. We will never know, but I wonder how it would have fared in 2020 if Covid never happened.
  23. Well you might be in luck- since the second half of this movie had barely anything to do with martial arts, and the after credits scene implies that that will also be the case for future appearances. I find that aspect a shame really. The MCU is currently very short on any street level fist fights.
