One notable incident occurred in 1326, when a gong-farmer named Richard the Raker fell into a cesspit whose ceiling had rotted, and drowned while collecting feces....

Here, we propose the initial metabolic trigger of hominid brain expansion was the consumption of externally fermented foods. We define “external fermentation” as occurring outside the body, as opposed to the internal fermentation in the gut. External fermentation could increase the bioavailability of macro- and...
I hate that “superhero fatigue” has become the accepted reason why recent movies have done poorly. It passes the blame from the studio to the audience.
People aren’t sick of an entire genre of films. They’re sick of bloated budgets producing CGI-heavy movies that get butchered in post production because the studio needs to meddle with everything to make sure the ridiculous amount of money they didn’t need to spend in the first place is as safe of an investment as possible.
Look at Iron Man 1. It had a modest budget, reasonable effects and told a concise story. People would watch another movie like that again. We don’t need world-threatening plots that can only be presented by an overworked and underpayed effects studio.
Sounds like you were never interested to begin with, since you’re so morally opposed to the entire concept of superheroes. “Superhero fatigue” is referring to people who were fans becoming disinterested due to overexposure. You were never a factor in that equation.
Shang-Chi is one of my favourite MCU movies, and I actually kind of liked Black Widow. Multiverse of Madness was a good Sam Raimi movie but not a very good MCU movie.
Love and Thunder is probably my least favourite. It made me hope Taiki Waititi never gets his hands on another franchise I love even though he has done some good things in the past. Ragnarok was good but already leaning way too much into comedy. I’d hate to see what he would do to Star Wars.
Bob Chapek really was the worst person to be put in charge of Disney. He did a huge amount of damage in such a short amount of time. I have no love for any CEO, but Iger at least seems to have a better idea of how to run things.
I recall reading somewhere that the (terrible) live action remakes were Chapek’s pet project even before he was CEO, but I can’t find the source anymore so take my words with a grain of salt.
The thing I hated most about Quantumania was that nothing was real. Every background was a CGI mess made of a bunch of ethereal looking blobs of land and sky. It’s like whoever designed the quantum realm saw a couple photos of space nebulae and desert hoodoos and thought that would somehow work if they slapped a bunch of actors on top.
I just played the demo on PS5 and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I really like the original, which also got a shiny remake a few years ago.
Been really liking the OEM Stretch bands from the Google Store. Great for daily use and sleep tracking. Pretty expensive so I waited for a sale.
