    Does it? Huh, as a fan, it looks like a high budget fan film.

    I want to watch the japanese version of that trailer

    Haven't made it to either of Barbenheimer, but I did go to see the new Mission Impossible today - utterly preposterous, mostly in all the best ways, and along with Spiderverse that's now two films I'm eagerly awaiting part 2 of in a year or so.

    Oppenheimer was incredible. On first watch on a real IMAX, I have it as his best, beyond TDK, The Prestige, and Inception, but that might be recency bias. IDK

    I loved all three hours.

    Interstellar is not on that list?

    Glad to hear it though. I've heard some people were a bit like but not love about it.

    Oppenheimer - The Prestige - The Dark Knight - Inception - Interstellar- Batman Begins - Dunkirk - Memento - Tenet - TDKR

    Your placement of Dunkirk and Tenet tells me we're mostly on the same page here then.

    Good Omens Season 2 dropped on Amazon. It's a fun watch.

    Really hoping they get a season 3.

    Just finished it, a very worthy continuation of the original. Fingers crossed for the third season.

    Gaiman on tumblr is being pretty transparent that renewal is based on the metrics that Amazon sees -- number of new people who watch it, and number of people who watch it all the way through in the first 1 month and the first 4 months of release.

    It was the same with Sandman, apparently - it being the most popular show on the site for about a month still wasn't a definite renewal, they still needed a certain number (which they got, of course).

    I have only seen 2 movies this year, Spiderman which was amazing, 10/10. To follow that high went and saw the big political movie on the year.
    We got to the cinema early and it was already packed, they had to open the second counter! Saw lots of folks in pink and others in black.
    It was showing in the grand theater, big chairs to lie down in, awesome. Saw the new dune trailer looks hype.

    Just blown away with the acting, directing you name it. Everything was mint! I'm probably just echoing what everyone else has said.

    Maybe the best movie I've seen. 10/10

    Went to see Barbie yesterday, and it was a lot of fun. What I found interesting was how it had a lot of different layers of parody and commentary, and while some of them were really nicely subtle, others were a little mallet-to-the-head obvious. Probably the thing that I found most... tiring, I guess, was the constant use of 'patriarchy'. Now, call me a snob, but having grown up on a diet of Pratchett using an absurdist world to lampshade real-world issues while almost never actually going so far as to mention the thing being lampshaded directly, I felt like it was a bit on the nose. Like, the point of the movie would have still been there without characters explicitly name-dropping patriarchy at every step of the process. We can probably work it out, you know.

    There are still parts that puzzled me, however. Like the Mattel board. They seem to be every bit as absurd as the Barbies and Kens, despite theoretically being from the 'real' world. At first, I thought it was another riff on the 'progressive businesses run and staffed by white men patting themselves on the back for whatever scraps they see fit to hand down to others' which is touched on in a few other places, but unlike in those cases, they're not really presented as villains in the ending. They're given a prime opportunity to support the 'Ken Land' thing, which is shown to be very lucrative, but they do not. I guess I'm overthinking that, now, on reflection. The fact that the Board's ending didn't really match their introduction is almost certainly a symptom of Mattel having a poke at whatever the original script was to ensure they weren't presented too poorly.

    I felt that perhaps there was a missed opportunity at the end when Ken was crying definitely not crying (because he's a strong, emancipated man) to have some kind of weak echo of Gloria's speech about the ways that his patriarchy limited his own options too, though perhaps this is meant to be delivered through Alan. Then again, the movie was already doing a lot of heavy-lifting, and perhaps that would be a bridge too far. After all, the movie doesn't really try to present solutions, and why should it have to? It's a Barbie movie.

    And I had fun.

    I kinda want a t-shirt with 'Ken out of Ten' or 'I am Kenough' written on it. Is it weird that the most obvious pop-culture meme quotes are Ken-related?

    Mattel does sell the “I am Kenough” sweatshirt. Lot of knockoffs too.

    Three episodes in One Piece and honestly it really is fun...

    I can't think of a single story that is more ill suited for a live action treatment with OP being so over the top and goofy but it does capture the feeling of the manga.

    Some scene do really make me cringe though in live action and some of the customs should not be made for real life but at least it is not afraid of embracing the source material ,which is more than you can say from some of the stuff being produced right now.

    Would recommend, it is heartwarming and I can't help but smile watching it but sometimes you get a feeling of surrealism, that pulls you out, just from it being a live action show.
