    Men in Black: International (2019)

    Interesting i saw a review that said it was good. i don't plan on seeing it until Netflix but, I'm curious as to how it's received

    S10.E03: Archer: 1999 -- The Leftovers

    I liked this episode, much better than the first two but, I'm so over Archer/Lana. I never liked them to begin with but, it's gotten really old by now.

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

    I think the problem comes from all the retcons. I don't recall Charles ever being an asshole or dick during my readings but, I have no idea what happened in between. When I came back to comics Charles was dead (by Phoenix Force influenced Scott Summers). Everyone hated Scott and blamed him for killing Charles whom they still loved/revered. While I don't think that Xavier was a Saint. My memories of Comics Charles (93-'01, '07-'08, '13-'14) was more of the wise old mentor, ala Gandelf, Dumbledore and Obi-Wan. So MY Xavier is closer to Patrick Stewart's than MacAvoy's. Although, I admit one of the last stories (that I remember) involving Xavier was from 2007 and, his will reading, where it's revealed he put the mental whammy on a kid who was so super powerful he could totally re-create reality but, even then I couldn't help loving Charles and mourning him.

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

    Oh, I agree, I've just always wanted to see that on screen. Maybe when MCU finally reboots the X-Men they'll do a Summers-Grey-Pryor trilogy.

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

    They could have done a cool version of Onslaught. Start the final movie with Charles shutting down Magneto's brain to protect people. Have the movie introduce this new mystery villain while having Charles acting odd (talking to himself, seeing Erik, etc). Finally have the reveal that mystery villain (Onslaught) was an alternate personality of Charles/Erik and then have Charles/Erik somehow team up to stop this new villain created from Charles' mutant powers. I don't know why but, they're always obsessed with Dark Phoenix when their are other crossover events that are really really good (X-Cutioners Song is a personal favorite)

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

    She's not a great actor, from GoT I'd argue that the younger cast, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner and Maisie and the actor that plays Bran, are very weak actors. However, i do find that with weak actors if you give them a strong actor to perform against they improve greatly. That's probably what happened with Sophie/Jessica, you also see it on GoT with Kit/Peter Dinklage. With regards to some of the plot choices, i'm reminded of a trailer review that Jeremy Jahns did where he said X-Men The Last Stand was the worst version of Dark Phoenix and, this movie decided to copy it. I think that's a big failure. I don't know if the writers were trying to tie this movie/story to the pre-First Class/DoFP timeline or just lazy. However, Magento's Mutant Camp was in The Last Stand as was Jean's childhood trauma, neither of which are from the source material. The weird thing is they could have adapted, close to the story. Have Jean get the powers on the space mission. Have her lose control but, be good and still try to do right only to have weird Alien girl Jessica Chastain use telepathy to mess with Jean's mind and have her go Dark Phoenix. Then end it with Jean making the choice to die rather than lose control and hurt people she loves. As for the Jean Grey School, that's what it's currently called in the comics (unless they reset it since i stopped reading). Jean and Xavier are both Dead, Logan's the headmaster and of course he'd rename the school after Jean 🙄

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

    I agree with Starri. The Dark Phoenix Saga needs you to invest in Jean in order to work. The problem is FOX always short cuts the story. In order to do Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix right you really need like 3 or 4 movies. It's really the ultimate character story but, it won't work if you're too busy focusing on Wolverine, Mystique or Xavier/Magneto.

    X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)

    Not surprised. I think Dark Phoenix has been done to death at this point. Plus the movie is getting bad reviews and AoA wasn't well received. I think people are just done with FOX's X-Men. That being said, as much as I can't wait for the MCU to reboot the X-Men i think they'll have to wait a few years and then go for something totally different.

    Good Omens

    Just finished. First 2 episodes were a little rough/disappointing but, it got so much better starting with that beautiful cold open in episode 3. I think I'm going to have to do a rewatch.

    S10.E02: Archer: 1999 -- Happy Borthday

    Better than the first episode but, not really wowing me. I like Ray and I'm really disappointed that we haven't gotten much of him in the last few seasons he's a fun character.

    Happy!

    All Episodes Talk: TRMS 2019 Season

    Did the sound cut out half way through for everyone?

    S10.E01: Archer: 1999 -- Bort the Garj

    It was, I don't know why I felt that way. Maybe because of the Space Theme, maybe it was always that way and I jist never noticed how much it reminded me of Cowboy Bebop.

    S07.E02: Gutshot

    I actually liked her look in that scene but, it was mostly the lighting and pulled back. In the later scene at the ballpark (sunlight) it looked awful. I liked the setup for giving Sherlock a reason to stay in NYC. The funny thing is I loved the S6 finale with Holmes/Watson in London. I kind of want S7 finale to have them go back. I can't tell if Joan's storyline is being used to end the season with Holmes/Watson staying in NYC or her evolving to embrace London. I wonder if the limited episode count means no case of the week? Are all cases this season going to tie back to this Domestic Terrorist Mystery?

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

    This looks really good and it was nice to see the use of real puppets over CGI characters. I loved The Dark Crystal as a kid and I watched it a few years back it held up well enough. I look forward to watching this series.
