What are we watching?

Want to talk about some nifty piece of media that isn't Neil-related? This is the place to do it.

So beautiful and so very good. I'll have to do a re-watch maybe in the summer.

WanderVison SE1 EP7:

A baddie finally muahahaed and revealed themselves and the grand finale next week could still go a dozen different ways. Slightly drug out because it's taking FOREVER for someone to turn into a superhero!

I like New Baddie! I like snarky dialogue and mischievousness. And the story is filling itself in enough that I can understand what’s going on, just by surfing the net to fill in details. I do hope it’s not too boring for someone who does the story arcs. Or worse yet, that they’ve got something very wrong.

Mostly-educational videos by mostly-silly British people on YouTube, from Tom Scott, The Tim Traveler, and Jay Foreman. And my daughter is rewatching Miles From Tomorrowland for the 7th time or so.

WanderVision S1 E8:
The exposition episode, drawing the lines between Marvel's comic, cinematic and X-men universes. Really wanted to see a glimpse of Michael Fassbender in Wanda's memories. Best part of the episode was after the credits.

WanderVision S1 E9 Finale

It had more loose ends than after a Chipotle E.coli outbreak, but gosh darn it

I loved WandaVision! Last night I watched buffering still shots and occasionally Doctor Strange. I think I might watch The Muppet Show for a while tonight.

Raya and the Last Dragon
Rating of Fury: B-


You've seen this before, and it was better.

Technically not a Disney princess because she didn't break out into her song, Raya travels a southeast-asian-themed world to bring the Infinity Sto-, uh, Dragonball-, uh, magic gem fragments back together to save the world from a plague she and her frenemy accidentally unleashed. If you're a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender or The Legend of Korra you will see so many similarities in those worlds and Disneys every time you see the frenemy you''ll shout AND THE FIRE NATION ATTACKED!

This is Disney, not Pixar, so the humor's a bit stale and side characters are cringey. The animation itself is show-off-your-home-theater-worthy with one exception: facial animations. Ever watch Boss Baby? Huge eyes and slightly off mouth sync? Same thing going on here. The dragons look like pastel-colored My Little Pony hybrids and I know one Boardee will be very excited about the inevitable toy lines *breaks 4th wall and glares at that Boardee*.

Some internet tough guy critic will twist the plot into current events; I won't go there. Raya's real sin is that it's recycled and bland. Kiddies may get bored until they start seeing the dragons, but then if you want your kids to see dragons, they should watch How to Train Your Dragon. Heck, even The Hobbit trilogy would be better.
