    I'm against them trying, but that's because I expect failure. Failure so bad that anyone that sees the live action version will never bother with the anime.

    And that's a tragedy.

    Went and saw "Glass" today. It was a toss-up between that and "Cold Pursuit", which looks delightful. Being from snowplow country, I respect the fuck out of the plows, and anyone driving them.

    But "Glass" is SO GOOD. Really, really, really good.

    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Holy shit, that's geocities level bad. Are they unironically trying to get us to avoid the movie out of sheer cringe?

    I'm fairly sure it's a "remember the 90s" style throwback. I mean, I didn't try to navigate it, but I admired the throwback. I don't think it's a website you're meant to take seriously.

    Alita: Battle Angel was well worth the price, I'm amazed at the amount of story and world building they managed to get into the time. Highly recommend it.

    61% on RT, I might give it a shot. Haven't been to the show in a while.

    I'm definitely planning on seeing it, though I haven't read any of the comics (or whatever it's from). We don't get it in the States for another week, though.

    Same, and same. It was a manga comic (Ganmu, literally "gun dream") that first ran in the early 90's and came back for sequels starting in 2000. AFAIK it's continued more or less uninterrupted since 2000. This is the image I first saw and always associate with the title.

    The Orville season 2 has been pretty good so far. I think it might actually have a season arc!

    There's a possibility @Mustrum_Ridcully must have already mentioned it, but has anyone watched Dark, German series on Netflix. I'm on episode 6 and really enjoying it so far. It has a Stranger Things/Twin Peaks vibe about it.

    So Rotten Tomatoes have changed their "want to see" from a % to a count. Probably in response to incels brigading Captain Marvel. Tho honestly, a count is better than a % anyways, as a measure of interest in a movie.
