I have never watched the CLERKS movies. Are they good?
Looking good, I'm not 100% sold on the cast yet, but seeing them in motion will help me like them more! Can't wait for a trailer.I have never watched the CLERKS movies. Are they good?
First look on Wheel of Time in Entertainment Weekly:
Showrunner Rafe Judkins previews his TV take on Robert Jordan's best-selling novel series 'The Wheel of Time,' starring Rosamund Pike.ew.com
Picture of the cast:
Overall I really like the look of the cast and I am hyped for the (teaser) trailer that hopefully drops in the near future
There are other pictures in the article but they may be spoilery for those people who have not read the books...
Don't watch Thor 2. It's even worse. Never bother to watch 3 and Loki thanks to that awful movie.Catching up with the MCU ! I’m nearly done, obviously, as I just watched… Thor 1
And this was not good, pacing is shit throughout and kills the movie. As a Thor intro, I guess it gets the job done.
Really in a TV/Movie mood, I just have 20 years of missed content, no pressure.
Good news, Cap is next on my watchlist. Not too hot on the fact that I suppose it's set during WWII, but the trailer I saw yesterday was pretty good.Don't watch Thor 2. It's even worse. Never bother to watch 3 and Loki thanks to that awful movie.
Among the tiny fraction of Marvel movies that I have watched, Captain America and X-MEN (not sure if those count as MCU) are the good ones.
That's good to hear. Captain 2 is set in modern days, btw. I wouldn't say they are great movie, but I definitely had a good time watching them.Good news, Cap is next on my watchlist. Not too hot on the fact that I suppose it's set during WWII, but the trailer I saw yesterday was pretty good.
I am quoting you here to avoid off topic discussion in the Steam thread. Which four Marvel movies have you seen?The issue doesn't reside in the light vs dark itself, it's a common trope and an effective one that makes it easier to grab the audience and avoids unnecessary lore or story dumps, the issue is when that's all there is to it. I'm not going to pretend to be super well versed in the marvel universe or that I've seen every single movie but from the 4 that I've seen I'm yet to notice anything more complex or nuanced than the hero vs villain framework.
Every great story has some kind of meta message or metaphor for the audience to take away and this is true for movies, books, games, etc, every type of media in existence. Even "dumb action movies" are capable of doing this like Terminator, Matrix or The Dark Knight, just to name a few. The good vs bad framework is there but it's only background for the more important and complex message/story they are trying to convey.

The final 30 minutes was really good tho. Very funnyMalignant was awful. Admittedly, I've never been a James Wan fan. Hated the Saw films, and thought Insidious and the Conjuring were awful after the first ~20 minutes (the build up in those films were solid). Malignant has nothing going for it though, other than the soundtrack. No good scares and bad acting is all I got out of it. Really disappointing given the buzz its been getting.
I may re-watch it with a different mindset. I hadn't see any trailers nor read any previews prior to watching it, so I was expecting another supernatural flick along the lines of The Conjuring and Insidious because that's what Wan's been doing for a while now. It appeared to start off that way with the shadowy figure's first kill, but when it became evident that the creature was scared of getting shot and apprehended it just took me out of the film because I wasn't expecting it to be more creature rather than demonic. Then after my mini review in this thread I read a comment on twitter on how this was a nod to Giallo films of the past... And then I was like holy shit, that flew over my head.The final 30 minutes was really good tho. Very funny
But yea it didn't feel like a James Wan movie at all.
Felt more like some horror movie Tarantino would make in the 90s. Some Scream vibes for sure. It has that cozy troll feel.
It's pretty weird. I don't like Arrival and consider Blade Runner 2049 to be a mediocre movie, but I really, really love Dune. I think the slow pace works very good here. It fits the desolate environment of a desert planet so well.I'm conflicted about Dune, I loved it when it comes to as an experience, but I was also bored because its super slow. I will be hyped for the second one when it comes!
