    Counterpoint: It was the number one show on Netflix over the weekend, and she should absolutely speak up about double standard sexist “jokes.”

    All due respect to Taylor, but I don’t think Netflix is combing through every script it greenlights to veto jokes that might be offensive to people it has worked with in the past.

    Great news everyone. The new woman I’m dating loves Manchester orchestra after I introduced her. I don’t have to break up with her!

    phoebe deserves all the praise but fuck Alt Press - for years they gave platforms to and championed abusive shitty artists and people in the scene, they don't get to look good now just by having a "women rising" issue.

  6. awakeohsleeper liked Nick's post in the thread WandaVision (2021, Disney+).

    Latest episode was good. I really liked how they grounded Wanda in normality. One of the biggest surprises of the show was seeing Wanda just walk out upset and get into her car. Can't explain why I loved that so much, just a bit of humanity added to the craziness. Her powers initially in the comics were described as a "hex power". She basically had the mutant power to control probability, mostly negatively. That's been retconned now, though. So it's a call back to that in addition to the play on words.

    Was listening to reputation in the car and when I parked my bf said he wanted to ask me something but he was worried I'd get mad. Legit was bracing myself for some awful sexist taylor question because he had asked me earlier if it was the album she made after the kanye scandal. Legit I was ANXIOUS about what was coming next. ... Anyway it wasn't taylor related at all lmao and it wasn't even a bad question and didn't make me mad but I was legit poised like

    I love every single song on this album. I know it is early, but I think I already love every moment of it.

  9. awakeohsleeper liked Nathan's post in the thread Movie Spider-Man: No Way Home (Jon Watts, December 17, 2021).

    I’m not someone who thinks the MCU Peter is too tied to Tony Stark. It would make sense for a post-Endgame Spider-Man movie to deal with that. I just think the way it deals with that runs counter to a lot of the arcs Tony Stark and Peter Parker had to that point. Entrusting essentially a WMD to a teenager, who gives it to the first nice adult he meets, not to mention the goofy “almost orders a missile strike on a rival classmate” and “hot adult lady forces him to strip” nonsense, I think it’s one of the more haphazard MCU entries, because as much as I hold against the MCU, it’s usually good at reigning things in and keeping their movies streamlined for palatability. Far From Home feels like a first draft. but it made me laugh a couple times and I like Tom Holland and Jon Favreau’s dynamic so when I think back on the movie and get past the generic CGI nonsense and how generally forgettable it was, there’s at least some merit when coupled with JK Simmons returning. I get why people like it (and despite some people’s weird fixation on the few people who have issues with it, most people do like the movie), I just think it’s a contender for the weakest MCU entry, where it’s got some tough competition. anyway hope this one is good, but as with most MCU I’ll keep my expectations tempered.

    i mean, if there's a time to do a long and dramatic drawn out album release, it would be during a pandemic when they can't tour

  15. awakeohsleeper liked Tim's post in the thread WandaVision (2021, Disney+).

    As a long time advocate for Vision being easy to bring back... I don’t think I want that now? Thematically, it’d make more sense if Wanda has to move on without Vision in her life, as tragic as that’d be. (Preferably without becoming the villain some people online have proposed, lol; that’d be a real bad choice given the grief angle they’ve gone down.)

  16. awakeohsleeper liked sawhney[rusted]2's post in the thread WandaVision (2021, Disney+).

    I would accept if they bring him back, but he can’t love her anymore. She needs to learn how to live with grief and loss in order to move forward in life and as a character. Doesn’t make sense if he just comes back and things are decently all “ok”

  17. awakeohsleeper liked Furry Werthers's post in the thread WandaVision (2021, Disney+).

    Either way, I'd be surprised if this ends with Vision still dead. Would work better thematically, with Wanda working through her grief and letting Vision go and all, but with the newer audiences, they may wanna keep the characters around.

    Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany have absolutely killed it this season. Easily some of the best acting in the MCU since it started and it’s not even close. Can’t think of anything that comes close. Maybe Michael B Jordan at the end of BP. But nothing else that really stands out. They won’t get anything, but they deserve a major award or two IMO.

    Lots to really love about this one. Some bits I wasn’t that into, but what I did connect with was easily enough to outweigh them. The flashback to the kids was really something. Really felt the impact from the attack. Also love that they grounded the sitcom angle, not in some dumb exposition-y way, but as an actual character, thematic element. Didn’t care for the Hydra bit outside of the well executed quick glimpse at the Witch. The Avengers compound scene ruled, though. Great performances from both of ‘em. I know people were into some of Vision’s dialogue there, but for me, the physical acting is was really sold it. I think the highlight for me was Wanda driving into Westview. The city & its people just felt so simple & mundane, & so familiar. To then culminate in that empty lot, & then see the note from Vision... I could make a case for that being the most effective emotional beat Marvel Studios has done. Just the way it perfectly showed Wanda mourning not just what she had & lost, but the home & family she was never going to have. The story cut short. And then I got the meta thing I’ve been stupidly obsessed with! lol. Agatha in the empty studio audience ruled. I didn’t care for the whole flashback bit at the beginning. I don’t like how standard Marvel some of the magic looks. But, the pros easily outweighed those criticisms. This reminded me of why I love Scarlet Witch so much, & then somehow elevated that.

    Thoughts on this: -The scene with her family was a real gut punch and honestly bummed me the fuck out. I knew it was gonna show the bomb going off but damn, it just breaks your heart. -The Chaos Magic/Scarlet Witch reveal was super tight butthole -Kathryn Hahn is hands down one of the best people to portray a villain in the MCU period, I will genuinely be bummed and disappointed if she gets canned out of the MCU in the last episode. I wanna see her be a persistent baddie. -The beginning was hype and really dark, I wasn’t expecting that.
