    Blake T you are a throwaway one night stand who’s sexual quirks the episode revolves around, and are ultimately determined to be unhealthy for one of the main characters to be around.

    I’ve seen about 2.5 episodes but I’m pretty confident it’s sex.

    Does Sex and the City 2 spend more time on fashion montages or serving as a propaganda piece for 1% tourism in Abu Dhabi?

    Took the 4 year old to see Sonic yesterday, and she LOVED it. The (very awesome) opening? “This is so cool!” The bar scene? “This is awesome!” The highway chase? “WOW!” The battle that went all over the place? “THIS. IS. SO. COOOOOOL!” And then the climactic standoff she cheered. Kid has never seen a Sonic anything before, and she ate that shit up.

    As for the wife and I, we thought it was fun. There are like three sections where it’s blatantly obvious that they didn’t know what they were doing and just shoved a scene in, but whatever. It wouldn’t have been as enjoyable without Marsden and Carrey (who was in peak “Jim Carrey” mode). I just wish they had a slightly stronger script, but that’s ok. I really do hope they get to make a sequel. And wow, yeah, I hate that the artists had to crunch the edit of Sonic, but the results are SO worth it. He looks excellent.

    I did think it was a bit cold him saying he had never had a friend and had always been alone though, given what that one owl does for him.

    Holy crap

    Cathy Yan has been talking about BoP more on Twitter and
    the scene with Montoya in the restaurant where she examines the crime scene and it switches back and forth between flashback and the present was ONE TAKE

    That is ridiculous

    The Owl was his mom more than his friend it seemed like.

    I just saw Birds of Prey.

    BoP is better than every MCU and DCU movie.

    And, specifically, has way better fight scenes than literally every live-action superhero movie in recent memory.

    A bar so low that they had to excavate to find it

    It's like the inverse of fast forwarding through talking to hit action, MCU movies make me want to fast forward through all the action

    I know you can't make a Marvel's The Avengers movie without action or a plot...

    But I think that would be my favourite Marvel's The Avengers movie? Like, just the characters hanging out?

    The plot and characters I'm generally okay with, it's whenever they have to stop the interesting stuff to have a genre mandated fight against the CGI budget where I struggle to stay awake

    (Winter Soldier has good action scenes)

    Blade has awesome fight scenes and he does pro wrestling moves to vampires so thats where the bar is set. Does it beat Blade hitting a vertical suplex on a vampire?

    I don't think Blade counts as "recent" but it does have a scene where wesley snipes rips out a guy's throat and then throws it at another guy, so it is definitely still better than birds of prey as far as fight scenes go

    Some things have to be kept out of the competition, otherwise it just doesn't make sense.

    I do agree with the larger point of MCU fight scenes being lackluster outside of Winter Soldier and the first Avengers. They're great at giving you aeesome moments, but the fight scenes are too chaotic and have no real spatial definitions to be great fight scenes.

    As much as I love Thor's dramatuc arrivals in Ragnorok and Infinity War the scenes around that are rougher.

    But Thor Ragnarok's bridge shit, showing the fight in glorious van-art 2D, was fuckin' transcendant

    The entire MCU was just an elaborate plot to make as many people as possible watch that fuckin' scene while Immigrant Song played.

    It's the conclusion of a deal Robert Plant made with the devil in like 1976.

    I thought the Thanos fight scenes on Titan in Infinity War and the Cap/Iron Man/Thor/Thanos fight in Endgame were very well choreographed and shot, personally.

    Sure they were CGI-fests, but they were engaging and felt like they had real weight to them.

    And the Mysterio illusion fights in Far From Home were really entertaining.

    I might agree that most fight scenes in the MCU are unremarkable but I don’t really see how using BoP as a way to critique MCU pushes the conversation into an interesting space. Haven’t we talked about the MCU enough? Shouldnt we give BoP it’s due? I thought the BoP fight scenes were kinda bad to be honest but there is enough good and interesting stuff to actually talk about.

    the Titan fight rules, and that big final action sequence in Endgame has some really strong choreography, but I thought the cinematography made it really hard to follow

    I'll never understand why they made so many scenes in these movies so dark
