that Dr Who remaster trailer looks terrible! did they crop a 4:3 show shot on video to 2.31:1 and just denoise and sharpen the shit out of it. disguuuuusting.

Looks like it was shot on video originally

Thanks for the warning, looks like I won't bother.

I liked it. it's a decent detective story with a very good cast. The same internet that has pronounced this series as flawed were blowing their loads over some soft brain Marvel shit a month ago.

Yeah, that's my point, why would you crop out the little video information that is there and blow up the image. Not to mention that you're missing half the image.

Maybe I'll give mare a shot then, after all.

I liked Loki, seems very inspired by The Adjustment Bureau, Terry Gilliam, Douglas Adams, etc.  As for the MCU, it depends on what kind of movies you like, but they are a continuous narrative.

^ what he said 

Rubin is right about continuity of MCU films but I can't recommend Guardian's of the Galaxy highly enough. It functions (or can function) completely on its own, and is probably one of my fave films of the last 10 years. It's just an excellent, hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes heartmendingly beautiful amazing flick. My wife and I watch at least once a year every year. 

FYI - don't put it on and go in the other room and make some popcorn or something and come back - there's a specific tonal shift in the first 5 mins or so that is so well carried off I can't stand the thought of someone missing it when they watch it for the first time.

some weird capitalizations/quotations leading to unintended emphasis and unnecessary text much like the unnecessarily detailed reason for an edit. it's been a day.

I almost recommended Guardians 1 as a good stand alone place to start.

v1.dDs0MDcyMDc7ajsxODgxNDsxMjAwOzE2MDA7M

this is show is a perfect encapsulation of modern television; it's got perfectly mediocre to terrible actors (i.e. background actors getting their first speaking role), a screenplay that's one part x-files and two parts graduate film school spec and a location manager that clearly has no quality control in his vocabulary. it's even worse than this which is an accomplishment in my eyes

Doooope. He's an odd duck isn't he? 

Rather them take their time and get this right. One of my first introductions to manga and still a classic. Short clip looks on point.

good.

Hyped for this, hopefully giving different directors a chance will produce some good stuff

 

doubtful. my wife and i watched pose. the first season was pretty good despite the fact that it was a dramatized version of paris is burning. season 2 gave up a big portion of the storyline they established and turned it into a semi-musical. season 3 went into a fantasy musical stage play and the final season was the remaining 20% cast re-enacting their favorite scenes from 80s films and sex and the city.

not sure i mentioned this before, but i've been slowly watching this lately. someone mentioned it here a while back (i'm sorry, i forget who), and it's finally on vicetv

highly recommended

Harley Quinn (animated TV series on HBO Max) - Just finished binging the first two seasons. It's fucking great. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking and inspiring - a passing familiarity with the tropes of DC Comics helps deepen the enjoyment, but not necessary by any means. Very adult (in all ways - language, gore, etc. but also in themes). A great show about broken people trying to find their place in the world, viewed through the lens of Adult Swim-style humor. A+

just finished fargo s4. took a bit longer for me to get into this one compared to previous seasons, but by half way i was properly hooked.

aside from that, i'm currently working my way through the final season of the trip. also great!
