Astoundingly, this may still be a fun movie summer. I mean, starting Sunday the two week clock starts on full immunization for me.
Am I gonna see VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE? Yeah, sure. The first VENOM was fun, if not exactly high cinema. And that’s fine with me. I’ve spent far too much time over the last year and a half being stuck with myself. Time to go just… do and see things. Things I didn’t make.
PS: Alternatively, the Mad Gene Media studio just used the Rage Against The Machine song without permission. One wonders what RATM plans to do about it, though. I mean: isn’t property supposed to be theft, or something?
I think THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER is going to be one of those shows which will have a complicated relationship with comic fans. A lot of people are going to hate it, and a bunch of people will loudly support it, and for the same reason: the show is doing the usual deep dive of the Marvel back issues, only this time they’re mining a different part of the back issues. I legitimately don’t want to spoil it, because (believe it, or not) I respect the right of people who I don’t particularly like to also have their fanservice in peace and quiet. I was able to watch all my stuff in quiet enjoyment, so they should get the same courtesy. Fair’s fair.
Besides, the show is interesting, once you kick all the ideology out of the way. It’s quirky: and I think this is going to be how the Marvel Disney+ shows are going to roll, generally. Which works for me.
That is the question. The current answer? Reply hazy, ask again later. Disney wants to drop BLACK WIDOW in theaters, but that only works if there are theaters to drop the movie into, and people willing to go to them. I’m willing to go to them – I saw TENET in IMAX, as God and Christopher Nolan intended me to – but I’m weird. Also, honestly: I’m not yet vaccinated. They may be limiting movie admissions to people who have been*.
But if it drops in theaters, that would be spiff. I like MCU films in theaters. They’re big and loud and fun. And I miss that.
*I have some hopes that I will get the shots before May.
I am legit looking forward to THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER. I’m kind of grooving to the fact that they don’t much like each other, but they know that Cap was best friends to both of them so they have this weird obligation to get along. I kind of hope that they end the run acting… pretty much the same way towards each other. Guess we’ll see!
