This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I didn't finish watching because their review was too long, but Red Letter Media made an interesting point about the Snyder cut: It should have been 2 movies, like the Infinity Stone saga. The fight with Steppenwolf at the 2 hour mark would have served as the perfect break.

I havent watched the Snyder cut and im not going to. Ive seen the original, im just not interested. Now the thing that has interested me are the articles and vids on youtube about other possible 4 hour long adaptations. Hollywood will not scrape the botton of the barrel, it will remove it and dig into the ground to find anything resembling interest or nostalgia it seems. I really dont want to know this was the start of a trend. Who knows if it would ever stop escalating.

How are these different from Amazon Prime's "So Bad It's Painful" collection?

No idea, I don't have Amazon Prime because I have to fork out money, tubi is free.

But the ones I found there are from way back when I used to go see two bad kung-fu flicks at the cinema.

Took the kids to see Godzilla vs Kong today. It had way more monster action than Godzilla 2014 and way fewer stupid parts than KoAM. It's not a work of art but these days I can appreciate a movie that's just entertaining. It isn't woke, but does have the improbably diverse cast we've all come to expect from modern movies. Fortunately, it's also lacking a Chicom insert character. There are plenty of references to other Godzilla movies, both the classic ones and the ones never shown in the US, so it was clearly made by someone that respects the source material.

Overall, the Monsterverse is similar to the DCEU in that their isn't a consistent theme or style running through all the movies. This one is probably closest to Skull Island in how most of the monster fights take place in the daytime with clear skies so you can tell what's happening.

I took a quick look at Tubi today. It reminds me a lot of the early days of Hulu.

Thanks for the heads-up, GeekyBugle.

Saw the movie Nobody with Bob Odenkirk few days back. Its like John Wick but way less cynical and over the top. The movie manages to keep one interested as in not breaking the suspension of disbelief. John Wick is still John Wick thou.

Friend of mine, for reasons unfatomable, forked out 30$ to see Raya and the Last Dragon. And was oddly un-impressed and impressed at the same time. Apparently looks nice and they liked the chain-sword. But did not linger long enough in each land visited to enjoy the differences. They also did not like the message near the end as it came across badly. Apparently others felt the same to some degree.

From their description sounded like someone in writing liked Final Fantasy: Spirits Within... ahem.  8)
