Not necessarily. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

Wow, honestly wasn't expecting a trailer unto like after Endgame.

 

And yeah I know that time table is kinda unreasonable but still wasn't expecting one.

 

 

-ZacWilliam, it looks fun. It's neat to see a live action Mysterio. I hope too much of the plot doesn't hinge on the VERY obvious twist of whats "really" going on with him and the monsters.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Looks good, everything I liked about the first movie's tone is back.  Probably the movie I'm looking forward to most this year after Endgame.

 

Mysterio actually looks badass, that's pretty much a feat in itself.

 

I always cringe when I see someone get tranqued in movies, I worry that one day, somebody's going to fall on the dart and get it driven into their neck :p

 

I have one tiny quibble, and this is a little more about how Spider-Man is handled across media in general: I don't like how he's becoming a hero who's about the suit, and getting upgrades to win the day.  I'll reserve judgment for how the stealth suit is used in this film, but I've been seeing the trend in the comics and video games, and it feels wrong.  (And yes, I get the need to sell toys, and I'm already planning to snap up the Marvel Legends for this film.)

 

That all said, I think the red-and-black suit looks sharp.  Arguably the "original" colors for Spider-Man, I wouldn't mind if this became the default MCU suit.

Let's be real, "collecting" anything is just part of the nerd mentality.  For all his appeal, deep down, Tony Stark is just a technology nerd who likes to build powered exo suits.

Others have pointed it out, but I think it's important to remember who the trailer properly introduced and the context in which he's being introduced.

 

 

As for the Suit Parade...I'd like to point out that Peter left his suit at home and then Fury tapped him. Obviously Fury's supplying the suit/s. Yes, it's a means to sell more merchandise but it's also a logical means by which to get Peter into a new suit.

 

Happy hitting on May was...odd.

 

That theme chord at the end. I'm pumped.

Well, I expect it's a "teaser" trailer because most of that stuff is probably in the first half hour or so, before "Iron Man and Thor rolled into one" does his heel turn.

Watched the trailer, looks ok but I'm not super exicited for this, was surprised by Fury's appearance but exactly why is he trying to recruit Spiderman, seems kind of out of character, he is a kid after all and surely there are better heroes worth recuriting or is Fury trying to build another set of Avengers to replace the ones who are going to die in End game?

I must admit, when Fury appeared, my mind quickly went from "Neat, I wasn't expecting that!" to "Ah, Christ, I hope Peter's not just changing one father figure for another." His support system in these movies is wider than I like to begin with.

 

 

Mysterio, Hydroman, and Sandman?

 

And Molten Man, from what I understand.

Of course, given who we're dealing with here, I'm assuming these "Elemental Men" are just Mysterio's "Omnidroids", rather than the real deal.

 

There were rumours that Keaton was going to return in this film in some capacity, though.

I'm curious as to Mysterio's end goal here. Setting himself up to be a hero through illusion is a means in and of itself, but the MCU is established enough that he has to realize he's screwed the minute a real threat appears.

I really don't like how comfortably middle class MCU Peter is. I was willing to ignore it last time because they implied the school was for smarter kids but a trans Europe trip isn't cheap.

Also 'MJ' just feels like they dreamt up a woke OC and slapped a legacy name on her despite little to no connection with Mary Jane, partly because they already used up Spidey iconography in 2 cancelled series.

Actually, it's still plausible.  My last job was at Cottey College, a small private women's college.  It's HEAVILY supported in terms of scholarships, having been founded by the Philanthropic Educational Organization, a group dedicated to providing educational opportunities to young women.  The average family income of the students there is actually lower than for most state colleges.  They have a two week European trip as part of the curriculum every spring, and students whose families can't afford it have their way paid with grants.  It's not implausible that Peter's school has a similar grant situation (especially if Tony Stark has started throwing money at it!), which is why the whole class gets to go even though many of them are of modest means.
