    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    I realize it's a bit dated and over-used but I just knew that someone would post an Oprah-esque "and you get a show! and you get a show!" and tumblr did not disappoint. You could probably count the delay in minutes. So much info to digest. And I love all of it. (Well, most of it. I want the Jane!Thor storyline but I don't want Portman doing it, so I'll need to hype myself a bit for that.) But mostly I just watched the SDCC footage for the pretty. Just... so so many attractive and talented people. Marvel's casting dept basically has the best job in the world.

    Knives Out (2019)

    I've known about this film for a while and was already sold just because of the cast. But wow is the trailer fun. Should make it easier to drag friends along to this rather than whatever blockbusters are coming out around then.

    Box Office

    I'm thrilled that Avengers is doing so well but I'm also sorta amused that they even bother calculating the tally at this point. Just release a gif of Scrooge McDuck swimming in gold coins and be done with it.

    Ghost Rider

    So to be clear, it's a different version of the character but we get to keep Gabriel Luna? I'm okay with that.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Can someone please explain how past!Thanos et al got to the present-day Avengers compound? I was in an emotional haze for the entire three hours so I probably just missed an explanation, but... that's a lot of tech for them to conveniently have, yes? Even if they got the coordinates from current!Nebula (which I think is what happened?) wouldn't they still need Pym particles and a time machine of some sort? It's not even regular time travel because they're coming from an alternate timeline, correct? Also, out of the many questions (and rage headaches) I've had re: Steve's ending, there's one detail I'm not clear on that can probably be explained easily: when he went to the alternate timeline to be with Peggy, was that the alternate timeline he and Tony created by going back for the stone and particles? Or did he create another new alt timeline? Because if so, that's bugging me. A lot. He's essentially creating/cloning a familiar world knowing that alt!Bucky is currently captured and being tortured and Hydra is just being its usual horrific self. Even if he and Peggy and Bucky team up to take down Hydra and clean up history, that's still a lot of pain and unhappiness to knowingly start up again, and it's unlikely that they'll have a 100% success rate so there's a whole new timeline of people getting killed or hurt. We know so few solid details about the infinity stones (in the movie universe, at least) that the writers could make just about anything possible. If they were determined to give Steve a sentimental ending with Peggy, I wish they had just handwaved something using one of the stones instead of mucking around with time travel again.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I'm so focused on how the characters cope post-Snap and how they untangle this mess that I keep forgetting that they'll actually need to face Thanos at some point. You'd think a giant purple dude would stick out in my mind more. Must we add yet another layer of awkwardness to the Sharon debacle by retroactively turning him into Uncle Steve?

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019)

    Halle Berry wasn't on Gotham, you may be thinking of Jada Pinkett Smith?

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    God I hope so; I hope it isn't just an editing trick. Ideally we'd be seeing Tony get genuine professional help because the movies have been pretty upfront about his compounding PTSD over the years without helping him much (understandable from a storytelling perspective, but oy). But I'll certainly take Steve, who I firmly believe has also had PTSD since his first movie though less overtly. Though honestly there's a solid case for any of the Avengers at this point. Showing one of them at least trying to manage it would mean a lot to me.

    S04.E02: Lost, Found, Fucked

    The circumstances may suck, but it was so good to see Eliot leaning against Quentin. That would make a nice little tumblr pic... y'know, without the blood spatter and knowledge of the actual storyline. I just love my boys and miss their relationship, okay? Unless I missed something, Julia's lucky that her plan didn't permanently kill her, because she doesn't know why she didn't stay dead. We don't even know why. So if it's spell-related, then she's purposely taking away that spell's energy knowing full well that magic stops on campus after 11pm. There was zero guarantee that the battery would weaken rather than kill her and then just burn out.

    Black Panther (2018)

    That cast always looks gorgeous on the red carpet, looking forward to seeing them.

    Bad Times at the El Royal (2018)

    I don't think this film will win given the long list of contenders this year, but at least one Oscar nom would be a nice nod. It really does deserve something. Saw this in theater months ago so we may be talking about two different things, but if you're talking about the blanket bundles she pulled from the trunk of her car, there wasn't anything in them. She was pinning blankets to the walls of her room to muffle her singing (presumably so she wouldn't disturb her neighbors).

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Before we got the official title, I was referring to this movie as Avengers: Hold Me While I Cry. I suspect many of us will be a mess. Hell, I'll probably still be a blubbering mess on my third viewing.

    S08.E08: Soujourn

    Despite my growing frustration (and common sense re: this show) I'm officially crossing my fingers for a cliffhanger. I'd rather be a little annoyed that we're getting consecutive seasons on an anthology series than very annoyed that they botched the apocalypse season of a show with "horror" right there in the title. We need to get back to the present of this timeline stat, even though I know we still have much that could/should be covered beforehand. I wanna see all the truly creepy things that one would expect from the end of the world. I wanna see plenty of Michael once he has come into his own. I want the actual apocalypse that we've been promised so I can at least be a little invested when the witches inevitably reverse it. I wonder if this season was going to happen later but then Ryan Murphy worked with Cody Fern and knew he'd found his Michael and just couldn't wait? As for the actual episode: the Satanist church was a wasted opportunity to go darker than this season has been but it was actually kind of amusing to see how normal and bland it was, mostly because of Michael's reaction. He was so uninspired. Poor kid is lost and looking for guidance and look where he winds up. Then he meets the tech guys and it's more of the same. You could tell he was constantly eyerolling and thinking, "JFC, Dad, I ask for a sign and this is what you give me?" Probably also explains why Michael isn't traveling with an entourage during the apocalypse. His people are so lame.

    S08.E06 Return to Murder House

    The house's stab-happy instincts and its less than stellar history regarding children mean that Tate probably never had a chance. Between his parents and then his mother's remarriage he presumably spent some/most of his formative years on a hellmouth. Putting aside the psychological damage of whatever messed-up ghosts he probably saw wandering about as a kid, the evil in that place probably soaked into him like radiation. Did he have issues? Sure. But my impression from the first season was that he wasn't the kind of guy that would burn his stepfather and mass-murder his peers. As always, YMMV.

    S08.E07: Traitor

    I'm amused that the show seems as disinterested in Supreme!Mallory as I am. Her active involvement in this episode was less than five minutes and her reveal as the next Supreme was practically a throwaway moment. My (cracky, probably 100% wrong) theory is that Coco isn't just around for comic relief. Her developing powers are essentially seeing what something's made of. So if she can eventually see what makes up people as well, she can also see what's missing, such as Mallory's soul if the plot twist is that she's actually evil. (Which is problematic for me, because I love my villains and she would pale in comparison to Fern and Bates.) Ryan Murphy knows we only have three episodes left, right? These flashbacks have been taking forever. I want to get back to the current storyline with the post-apocalyptic showdown and Michael's luscious locks.
