  1. Finished up FMP earlier today, and by all accounts it's a good end to a middling season. Xebec showed they can meet the challenge given adequate time and resources. Some of the dramatic setups were bungled, but seeing and hearing without the usual anime overwrought operatics was a damn refreshing thing. Overall, I still think they stuck way too close to the source material - could have excised Namsac entirely - and the story would have been stronger for it. And no matter how much I try, I can't stop imagining what this same story arc would have looked like in KyoAni's hands. It's unfair to Xebec, who I think did the best with what they had in a very different industry, but still... But those complaints don't beat out the positive feelings. It's absurdly lopsided in quality, with most of the good coming from the very first and very last episodes and a TON of the bad from the middle 80% or so, but it's just so good to have been back again.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    I prefer this version. DO IT YOU BASTARD!!! the unironic love for even the dumbest parts of Zilla lore is infectious But on another note, whoever composed the music for this trailer is fantastic. I know it's just Claire de Lune or however it goes, but the choice to use it was genius. It's what elevates this one far far above the Shazam/Aquaman trailers that also came out this weekend. It's used in a lot of other stuff. The name of it is, yep, guess I was right, "Clair de Lune" and it was composed by one Charles Debussy as the third movement of his Suite bergamasque piano suite. I remember it from the The Evil Within games, but I'm sure I've heard it elsewhere as well.

    Is Orville still on? I haven't heard anything about it for a while until just now.

    Full Metal Panic! Action Figures

    Two? You mean three, right? Or... wait... there's the pre-Arbalest SRT, when Sousuke's still piloting the M9, so that's a team of three... Then there's the Arbalest SRT, so two M9s there... probably need another to scratchbuild an M9D Falke... the Laevatein team, so another two or three?... oh, and the Blaze Raven from the spinoffs... So... about sixty? Yeah, sixty sounds about right.

    DC SHAZAM! live Action

    Well, it's not nearly as bad as the Aquaman trailer. That's... some sort of endorsement, I guess.

    DC Aquaman

    Looks like lots of sound and fury to distract from an utter lack of substance. Does anyone else find it weird that literally every other Atlantean speaks in a formal style whereas THE Atlantean is the sole exception? It bothered me in Justice League (well, everything bothered me in Justice League), and it bothers me here. You don't see T'Challa busting out the AAVE in Wakanda. And it took Thor something like five movies to gradually lose his Asgardian manner of speech. Blargh. Just getting the hate on. Ignore me, enjoy.

    Black Widow

    I'd have way preferred a movie about her time briefly teased in Age of Ultron. That sequence stood out as one of the highlights of an otherwise decent but ultimately mid-tier movie. By now, the time for a solo Widow movie has come and gone, methinks. It feels, at least to me, like a Solo movie.

    This is a screenshot? Digging it. Especially digging how they replicated the dot effects from the printing process.
