  1. The #ReleaseTheSnyderCut people have been putting up billboards near San Diego Comic Con: I'd be curious to see what state Snyder's version was in when he stopped working on it, but I doubt it'll get released. Supporters of the campaign keep using the eventual DVD release of Richard Donner's cut of Superman 2 as evidence that it's not in vain, but I don't think that was a comparable situation. Still, they're sharing the picture below to show how much they've raised for charity. $82,000 from a Zack Snyder t-shirt design seems implausible to me, but if those figures are accurate, let them get on with it! (But I wonder how much it cost to erect those advertisements?)
  2. Mark Kermode reference?
  3. Iron Man 3 is amazing.
  4. Thor: The Dark World has some good jokes and a nice concept for its final action sequence (gravity-disrupting portals), so it's worth watching once. But it has plenty of problems, most of which revolve around the fact that it has by far the MCU's worst villain. As long as The Incredible Hulk exists exists, I can't ever bring myself to call The Dark World the worst of the MCU - and I'd also rank it above Iron Man 2, because its tone and pacing don't constantly lurch around in different directions. On the whole, this is probably the best way to watch it:
  5. The first of those is mentioned in one of the tweets I didn't embed!
  6. Really? I remember it being the best Disney CG animated film that doesn't have "Zoo" in the title. I've Got A Dream > all the songs in Frozen.
  7. Here's a big Twitter thread with lots of pictures of the Trocadero over the years: Through Alien War and SegaWorld... ... through to its Funland ownership and decline: ... and then finally: Separately, this video was published a few days ago. Haven't watched it yet:
  8. It's disappointing that 90% of YouTube fan performances of video game music seem to do them as \m/ METAL!! \m/ covers. Even for tracks for which that genre is completely unsuited. But I think that one's better and more tasteful than most. Emerald Hill seems slightly more suited to being covered in that genre then Green Hill does! And there are worse genres to pick, I suppose Coulda linked to an a capella version. Basically what I'm saying is: more ragtime VG arrangements, please!
  9. I dunno. It's been reported that Lea Seydoux's Madeline Swann is coming back too; is it more likely that the new agent will be killed off, or that the woman Bond already has a relationship with will get fridged (in the manner of Tracy and Vesper)? It'd be pretty much unprecedented for them both to survive. Speculation on a Fleming reference that a change of codename could lead to: I think I'm more optimistic about the film than most here. I've been enjoying Birth Movies Death's former 007 correspondent Phil Noble Jr's Twitter thread following news on the film (where I saw the tweet above); he also sees the prospect of Bond encountering his replacement as a thing to be excited about:
  10. However, the correct answer is...

    I wanted Federer to win, but it was surprising and disappointing just how extremely one-sided the crowd were against Djokovic. All that booing when he argued against that challenge towards the end! Not being a close follower of the sport outside of the late-rounds of Wimbledon, I'm not sure what exactly so many people in the crowd had against him?
  12. There are lots of announced release dates for "Untitled Marvel Movie", but no officially announced titles to go with them yet. It's expected that most of them will be announced either at SDCC in a week or so, or at D23 in August. Black Widow is filming, and after that Eternals and Shang-Chi. GOTG vol 3 won't arrive until after James Gunn has done The Suicide Squad for DC. Doctor Strange 2, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and another Spidey film are all safe bets too. It seems likely that Sony will want to stick to a two-year gap between live action Spider-Man films. The way it undermined the gravity of the event bothered me too, coming so soon after Endgame had asked us to treat it with utter seriousness. But I've seen a few people (mostly those who found it ridiculous in the first place, an event that the MCU was never equipped to handle) praising it for treating it flippantly.
