    The zombies fell flat for me, but I did like how this episode started and how it was revealed that things in this “what if” world went sideways. 

    I agree.  I think I realize the problem here.  The What if here is based entirely on the narrower scope of the MCU.  For all the development that Disney put in place, it doesn’t come anywhere close to equating to the decades of comic history when What If came out first in the comics, and the series is also quite narrow in scope relatively speaking.  No FF, no x-men, very limited Spider-Man (seriously, what can you do with Vulture or Mysterio outside of movie setting, no Electro, Green goblin, Gwen Stacy, Doc Ock, etc) heck, most of the MCU is based on a single overriding theme of cameos and massive crossovers.

    That's because the episode ends right there. Outside episode 4 it would be interesting to see what happens next, especially in episode 3 with just Captain America and Marvel as the Avengers team (couple?), lol.

    I think of this series as what Strange saw in Infinity War.  Just different points in time.  The last couple has been kinda dark.  We have to see what they come up with next.

    Surprised to see this thread so quiet, went to see Shang-Chi earlier today and thought it was absolutely fantastic. Easily in my top 3-5 MCU films behind Endgame, The Winter Soldier.

    Even Awkwafina who I find to be generally annoying in everything I've seen her in didn't bother me. Don't get me wrong, she was still very much Awkwafina, but her character was relatively likable and the movie did not suffer at all from her being in it. Hell, I even rooted for her in a few instances.

    The first two thirds of this movie were just really, really good. The third act was good too but the climax went full Marvel with the CGI - something that felt extraneous when compared to the rest of the movie. A minor critique at best.

    Great action/fight choreography, strong emotional arcs, GREAT cameos, good humor, solid soundtrack and it left me wanting more.

    If I can find the time I want to see this in the theatre again.


    You are far kinder than I am on this movie.  All I can say is one word:  Awfulfina.  Marvel needs to get rid of these useless characters.  The movie had some good points, but they needed to not have Awfulfina, I really don’t dig the connections to the US, as she is obviously a shitty attempt to form some kind of connection to second or third generation Chinese kids who are basically clueless about China.

  4. Just can’t get excited about this movie, no matter how many excellent HK actors and actresses they put in there.   Mainly because they put Awkwafina in this movie, or as I’d like to call her Awfulfina or Awkwardfina, take your pick, having her in there just drags the movie down, not if they have Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Donnie Yuen would they be able to balance out her awfulness.


  5. it's a shame that Musashi and Yamato were done in by carrier aircraft.  It was just a fitting end to the battleship era considering how the Pacific was mostly carrier and submarine wars.

    But it would've been a grander end to the battleship era to see Musashi and Yamato duke it out with Ching Lee's New Jersey and Iowa.  While the latter was more likely to have won due to better speed and fire control, the former could've gotten lucky.  Instead the end was the Surigao straits with Olendorf's ghosts of the deep killing the older Fuso and Yamashiro in a ridiculous six v two fight.

  6. One obvious question is how did Gamilas fall so far so fast that their homework’s is actually threatened.  Gatlantis wasn’t shown to be focused on Gamilas at all.   And what the heck happened to the Gamilas type Andromeda carriers, they are back to triple deckers again?  

    yes, three years have passed…. What the heck was Desslar doing for three years?

    I don’t think Crosshairs will make it out of this season or that character won’t be sticking around with the squad. His squad abandoned him and his attempt to convert them to the dark side didn’t work. The Empire decided to write him off now. I just don’t see his character sticking around as a permanent fixture.


    I would like to be surprised though.  I agree, but I think if they manage to surprise us on this, it would make for some very awkward moments later on, and potentially fun.  Interesting though, at this rate, there will now have to be retconn'ed in a network of clones who are turning against the empire.

    Oh man, that is too disturbingly funny!:rofl:

    Not nearly as funny as the fact that if she then went on with Kylo, it's basically... well, the image is disturbing to say the least.

    OK, hang on, let's see if I can make any sense of this

    Palp is Annie's daddy.

    Palp is Luke and Leia's grandpa

    Pal is also Rey's grandpa

    So is Rey Kylo's aunt or cousin? 

    And who is Rey's uncle-daddy again?  That guy who got about 5 seconds screen time in that last movie right? 


    Yes, so, the granddaughter, and the great grandson (meaning the auntie and the nephew) decided to get together.  This is disturbing in all kinds of ways.  Trust Lucas and Disney to come up with something twisted like that.  Just when you thought the Oedipal complex couldn't be worse, Disney takes it one step further.  Good job, mouse.

  9. And despite it not being a good movie, ScarJo is suing Disney.  Yayyy, now we have some real fireworks.

    And by the way, ScarJo, Romanov is staying dead, no matter how many other universes there are, she has died in every alternate reality possible.  B

  10. Hahahaha. I just saw this thread, and the so called trailer.  They should just make a show called Star Trek: crap, or Star Trek: we have no clue what we are doing.  At least it would be honest.

    paramount + indeed, they should call it Paramount - for all the money they are dumping.

    He could be deceptive in a good way...

    I liked it. A little let down by the ending though

    I liked season finales to be all buttoned up, rather than cliffhangers. I don't want to have to wait half a year for the continuation.


    You mean like some of the Cobra Kai endings we have gotten?

  12. Gotta admit, felt a little let down.


    Essentially the whole thing seems to be a transition and setup for the next Dr Strange movie.

    Will Sylvie come back?  I don’t know if I like this version of Loki very much.  I need deceptive Loki, not kind hearted nice Loki.
