  1. I mean, having some characters just be completely off camera all the time would help the budget too
  2. No Tala or Maisie in that photo, sinking my anticipation even more
  3. More and more I appreciate S1 not only for the team members using their variety of skills (and having a special effects budget), but also for time travel being a central, necessary part of the show. I feel like they struggled with both those things in the most recent season.

    Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

    I liked it. There was a bit too much Tony overshadowing it for me, only because I don't follow the MCU. (Gasp! A heathen! Please don't shun me.) This was only my 7th MCU movie, so I like the ones that are able to stand on their own as a film. All the easter eggs and call backs are great, but I don't get any of them so it's nice when you're still able to enjoy the jokes and characters without having to do so much homework beforehand. I love Tom Holland and I love Zendaya and think they are adorably cute, both as individuals and together. They're both really smart and a little awkward, which is endearing to watch (it helps that they're both really attractive too). I would like to see more of a core trio of Peter, MJ, and Ned working together in the next movie. Agree that Ned needs to get to be The Guy in the Chair again next time around. The scene where Peter was fooled by the simulation and getting beat up was hard to watch. Not only because you were worried for him, but I had trouble tracking exactly what was going on that whole time, where exactly he was in relation to the real world, etc. How could Mysterio create and adapt to so many augmented realities so quickly? It seemed like were practicing their one big attack quite a few times to make sure they knew what was happening, but then he was able to knock Peter around through a bunch of different settings without batting an eye. Was cool to watch but it just went to fast!

    Charlie's Angels (2019)

    How does appreciating an overstocked closet of fashionable clothes and disguises discredit any other accomplishments they have? They also had a whole closet of weapons and spy gear they were excited about. Trailers, even when they sometimes give away a lot of the story, are two minutes out of a 90+ minute film. I wouldn't get so upset by it quite yet.

    Charlie's Angels (2019)

    Well good thing I love a good, fun action-comedy in any season! (Was this trailer released super early? I feel like they release trailers so early these days. Or am I just old? Oh no.)

    Charlie's Angels (2019)

    Definitely making a point to see this in theatre! I love a good, fun summer action-comedy!

    S01.E01: Putt Up or Shut Up

    The best part was when the lumberjack missed a winning putt and went "FART!" and Rob Riggle actually broke and started laughing. I also wish we got to see more of the actual mini-golfing element. WAAYYYYY too much time spent on contestants being "quirky" in talking heads when they should have had more of them actually talking on the course. Regardless, I'll keep watching. It's good mindless summer entertainment!

    The Starling City Times: News and Media about Arrow

    Ahhh, that makes sense. In my head I was only thinking of shared Arrowverse shows!
  10. Also not a Game of Thrones watcher so felt a bit "meh" about a lot of the categories where they had multiple nominees in the final. Was it only me who was a bit confused at the overlap in some categories? "What Dafuq Just Happened?!: Worst Payoff To An Ongoing Storyline" and "You’ve Got to be Fucking Kidding Me: Biggest Plot Point Letdown" had some similar nominees, as did "We Heart Bad Boys: Favourite Villain" and "Big D (or V) Energy: Badassiest Badass" (which had the same winner) and "Get Your GOAT: Favourite Show of All Time" and "Oldie but a Goodie (or Bestie Even): Favourite Show that no longer airs" (also the same winners). There were A LOT of categories, so maybe some clearer nomination requirements next time around? Or combine some categories? That being said, I would also love a "BEST Payoff To An Ongoing Storyline" category. So often shows drop the ball, but sometimes things come back around really well and it would be nice to have the positive version of that category!

    The Starling City Times: News and Media about Arrow

    Wait - six? Arrow, Flash, LoT, Supergirl, Batwoman, and ?
  12. Ugh, what a bummer. For fans and for the cast! I wish they'd show up and just crash the other Arrowverse panels 🙂

    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    Isn't the Teen Choice Awards one of those shows where the winners are decided based on who shows up to accept an award? Hopefully KM isn't being held up for that!

    Toy Story 4 (2019)

    We tried to bring my nephew today, unknowingly went in the wrong theater, and saw only the last 15 minutes. It was a good 15 minutes with some laughs, but I don't know if it was enough to make me go see the whole actual movie. (Even with the free comp tickets we got for being idiots!)

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    This movie is one of the few (the only?) to get close to breaking Avatar's record, so I can see why they want to do everything they can to get there.
