    JNHFan2000 got a reaction from Yavar Moradi in Rob Simonsen - Deadpool & Wolverine   
    There are some points I agree with there, the plot is indeed on the simple side, but there are so many fantastic films with a simple plot: Jurassic Park, Die Hard among others.
     
    What I thought was so great about this film was the character work on both Deadpool and Wolverine. Each of them has a good arc with ups and downs. It really works.
    You have all the nostalgia stuff surrounding it and the cameos (which honestly are more supporting roles. These characters are around for quite a while and also have a real meaning to them), but if you take all that away still have a really great buddy road trip film so to speak with excellent action etc that just happens to feature these 2 comic book characters.
     
    I don't think a lot more is expected and needed from a film that features Deadpool. That was more the point I was trying to make. Some critics are looking at it like it should be the new awards frontrunner and judging it that way, which makes no sense to me. If it's not for you, that's of course completely fine.
     
    This film is made with a clear purpose: to entertain! And it does so in spades.

    What critics think and what I think about a film is becoming more and more at odds with each other these days. I feel like in general there is more negativity towards films coming out these days. And to me as someone who is just trying to enjoy oneself it's really annoying sometimes.

    House of the Dragon 2x04 The Red Dragon and the Gold
     
    Wow, that ending battle was incredible, certainly one of my favorite battles in all of GOT and HOTD.  It was fascinating to see actual dragon-vs-dragon combat, since the Luke/Aemond stuff at the end of last season was quite brief, and the ice dragon stuff on GOT was, well... yeah.  It really was like a dance in the sky, the way they would interlock and spin around... and claw and bite each other, damn!  I dunno how the humans hold on during all this, lol
     
    TEAM GREEN
     
    Criston Cole's war is going well, and I'm glad we get to see how brutal he is, with decapitating anyone who doesn't bend without much fanfare.  Alicent taking abortion tea was interesting; At first I thought it was more like a morning after pill, until I realized that at this point Cole would have been gone long enough that maybe she ended up missing a period, and knows she's pregnant?  The maester that brought it to her, I couldn't tell if he believed her that it was for someone else or not, but I loved that Alicent asked him if Viserys really would have changed his mind about his heir.  Of course he'd never say anything about that, though! But I'm glad she's thinking about what she learned from Rhaenyra and not just ignoring it.  I also wasn't sure what to make of Larys coming in and noticing the cup, and if he knows that she was banging Cole or not?  What knowledge he has is being kept much more secretive this year.  I'm not sure why he even went to see her, and she seems to have no more power to help him out.  Maybe he wanted to try to see her feet somehow, but realized that was off the table when he saw her condition?
     
    The council that Alicent missed was one of the best council scenes yet.  Aemond switching to Valyrian to put Aegon in his place was not only super effective, but spared Aegon some dignity since no one in the room can speak it. And his response in broken Valyrian was SOOO funny.  Glynn-Carney is just great this season!  I loved how mad he was that Daemon beat them to Harrenhal, though Larys informing him that he has all the gold anyway, and the castle will drive Daemon mad, seemed to calm Aegon down, if only because Larys had his back last episode maybe.
     
    Alicent looking for books is another nice bit; Clearly she wants to find evidence of this Price That Was Promised story.  Boy, was I glad that Aegon said they were only removed, not burned!  But then, the talk they have was terrifically written.  She's SO right to point out that everyone on that council EARNED their spots, and he was simply born into his, and that he should rely on their wisdom and experience since him putting on a crown didn't automatically embue him with either.  I thought that might have sunk into him, until he got drunk, put on that Valerian Valyrian armor, and took off on Sunfyre, lol.
     
    TEAM BLACK
     
    So now I think I understand what is going on with Alyn of Hull; He's Corlys's bastard, and Rhaenys knows it.  That kind of explains all the awkwardness he had with Corlys earlier in the season.  So is his brohter Addam a son of Corlys too, or from a different father?  I love that Corlys goes to Dragonstone since the council is headed to war with Rhaenyra being gone, but i REALLY didn't understand why she was gone so long.  SO MUCH episode happened before she finally showed up, and I didn't get the impression that it takes very long to take a boat from Dragstone to King's Landing, so what was that all about?
     
    I do love that when she returned, thanks to her conversation with Alicent, she is now prepared to do battle.  The change in energy in a Black council scene was finally electric; Even Jace was really beginning to lose faith, eh?  I love that Rhaenyra was willing to go fight at Rook's Rest herself, preventing Jace from doing so.  But then Rhaenys stepping up, man, I loved it.  Eve  Best killed it this episode.  It's the right move, and both she and Melys have the most experience.  Rhaenyra of course allows it, but I am glad that she didn't order it herself, that Rhaenys volunteered.  The only thing I miss was that, I would have liked it if before she left, Rhaenyra took her aside and told her that her son was actually alive.  Maybe that would have been a distraction, but I dunno, now its too late for her to ever know.  I loved the bonding moment she has before she too takes off on Melys for Rook's Rest...
     
    TEAM DAEMON
     
    It was great to see Milly Alcock again in another one of Daemon's visions.  And then later he sees Laena too; Are we going to see Rhea Royce next week for the wife trifecta?  The best vision though was when he followed what was basically Aemond, then it turned out to be Daemon himself in an eyepatch.  It felt like the writers lampshading how similar the characters are, but in a way that I found hilarious and loved it.  Oh, I hope these two characters get to face off for real before season's end.
     
    So this mysterious lady has a name Alys Rivers, and claims to be both old, and a barn owl in human disguise, lol.  Still getting potential Melisandre vibes from her.  I LOVED the explanation that many weirwood trees were felled to build the beams of Harrenhall, and that even the bed Daemon sleeps on is felled weirwood.  I was reminded of felling all the trees for Isengard, but also Poltergeist-y themes of making homes on ancient magic land.  I do wonder if what Daemon sees is purely from his own subconcious, or of Rivers is feeding him specific visions, for some purpose?
     
    THE ENDING
     
    The ending of this episode was just incredible.  The entire battle was perfectly staged and executed, tense and exciting throughout.  Before the dragons got involved, the actual siege was nicely depicted, the arrow hits felt so brutal, and boy was it clear that Rook's Rest was unprepared and would have lost quickly.  But man, the reveal that it was Cole's plan all along to draw a Black dragon to the battle, because Vhagar was hiding in the woods with Aemond on top, was terrific.  I don't know HOW you secretly get the biggest dragon in the world from King's Landing to there (wasn't Baela supposed to be watching from the skies?), but no matter.  I loved how sleepy Vhagar looked, and how she basically seemed happy to lie back down when Aemond saw Aegon in the sky and held off attacking.  Immediately I realized that he's hoping Aegon bites it here, which certainly is the most likely outcome.  Him saying "idiot!" in Valyrian was soo funny too, and a nice parallel to the council scene where Valyrian was spoken.
     
    Before Aegon's arrival, Melys's contribution to the battle was perfectly horrific.  With one battle-field sweep of firey dragon breath, you realize just how different war is now with dragons involved.  How quickly so many people instantly die.  Already we have a way to one-up all the battles we saw in Game of Thrones, and I'm here for it.  Then Aegon and Rhaenys dueling in the sky was just incredible, with Melys seemingly more than capable of taking out Sunfyre (I do wonder if Aegon being drunk meant Sunfyre was kinda drunk too?).  But then Vagar showing up, wow.  Aegon was so happy to see him, until he realized all Aemond was going to do was yell
    "Dracarys" and BURN THEM BOTH!
     
    I loved that when Sunfyre falls to the ground, it's like a building fell on the battlefield, it's almost just as scary as swaths of flame.  The fact that Rhaenys goes back to attack Vagar again when she could have just left here a small victor tells you a lot about her character, and the fact that she holds her own against Vagar and is able to escape death is truly remarkable.  But then, oh Rhaenys, now is the time to fly home, but she just can't do it.  Is this Targaryen's worst traits coming through, to want to die on the battlefield? Or is it the bond they have with the dragons; The dragons want to fight each other, so she does too?  It was so sad to see Aemond win this time, and her fall to her death.  RIP the Queen That Never Was.
     
    I loved Criston Cole's actions throughout this battle.  First the thrill of his plan working when Melys shows up, then the confusion when Aegon shows up in the sky instead of Aemond, which he quickly spins as a rally cry to the troops that they should be honored their king is there to fight for them.  Then the horror of seeing what dragon fire does on the battlefield, with nothing but smoking bones remaining in their armor.  Then when Aegon falls, he rushes to him instead of sticking with his men.  When he arrives and finds Aemond sheathing his sword, was that meant to be that Aemond was about to approach Aegon and finish the job if he wasn't dead?  It was ambiguous I think.  One thing's for sure, the war has well and truly started now, and both sides have a lot of adjustments to make!

    Well said.  Yeah The Deep and Tilda Swinton scenes were all funny, but also what was the point of them?  They didn't do anything to inform The Deep's character at all.  He started the season an asshole willing to murder whoever tells him to, and ends the season exactly the same as that.  Maybe his redemption will come next season.
     
    I am so confused about Neuman.  In the prior seasons she was just a head-popper.  This season they invented that she's completely invulnerable too, between the acid and the other stuff they tried to do to her early in the season, and Homelander's eye beams doing nothing to her in this episode to reinforce that.  But then Butcher's tentacles can just rip her apart?  Why?
     
    The biggest mistep of the whole show is still sidelining Stan Edgar.  In the early seasons, he was set up as the only person who can get Homelander in line.  They never explained why, and now his character has nothing to do with the show any more.  I don't get that either.

    The Boys 4x08 Assassination Run
     
    Well, that was definitely not a finale that saved the entire season and turned it from bad to good.  However, I will say the second half of the season did end up being A LOT better than the first half.  The problem is, it wasn't as good as Gen V season 1, and neither of those seasons are better than the first 3 seasons of The Boys, so what are we even doing here?  If they don't drastically improve the writing for the final season, it's going to make the whole show feel like it was never worth watching in the first place.
     
    The biggest fail of the season was Sage.  Her character ended up being utterly and completely pointless.  Her plans were so incredibly simple, there was no reason to introduce her character to have them; Homelander himself could have come up with a plan to work with Neuman to kill Singer and make her the president and push a pro-supe-authority agenda.  What's worse is that I never, ever saw evidence that she actually WAS super smart at all;  In the last episode she took credit for knowing A-Train was the mole all the time, but did she know?  In this episode, she says it was her plan all along for Singer being arrested and Neuman being the one killed, so that Calhoun can become president, but was it?  It seemed like she was simply taking credit for what happened after the fact, again.  Pointless!  The only thing she brought to the season was some comedy and that's it.
     
    Overall it really seems like Kripke only had a small overall plot for this season, that warranted about 4 episodes worth to tell, so he strettttttched things out with all this characters-dealing-with-their-pasts issues in the first half of the season.  None of that stuff really paid of in any way in the second half, except for maybe Hughie's continued growth (he actually has a decent arc over the show).  There was no final showdown with Annie and Firecracker, Frenchie just disappeared and came back with no change, Kimiko never faced that scarface lady again, etc etc.  Pointless stuff.
     
    Firecracker is a slightly better add to the cast than Sage, and she at least had interesting political aspects that tied into how Homelander is able to take over the government at the end.  But honestly, all of that was so undercooked, the show should have spent way more time in those early episodes explaining this plan, and showing more how the general public was feeling about the government before their takeover, and how Firecracker was playing into it all.  There was some of that, but not enough.
     
    Butcher was also botched this season.  In the first 2 seasons, he wants to kill all supes.  In the 3rd season, he struggles with taking Temp V because it would temporarily turn him into what he wants to destroy.  Then he takes too much and finds out he is going to die.  The writers resolve that by having him take permanent V off-screen in between seasons, which... causes him to see Becca and Kessler as halucinations? And puke sometimes?  And have tentacles come out of his body that he can control with his mind?  Is he actually dying or not?  Was the hallucinations caused by the V or is he just mentally unstable now?  I don't know, and do I care?  The season ends with him driving away in a car by himself with one vial of the virus like that was supposed to be some kind of big season-ending moment.  Is it?  Why?  Is the intent that he will try to find a new scientist that will turn that one vial into the airborne "kill every super on the planet" variety?
     
    I was mostly bored by the Ryan scenes all season long too.  He just kept flip-flopping between liking Homelander and no liking Homelander and that was it.  There's a way to tell that kind of story effectively, but this wasn't it.  The only thing I can think of that they'll do with him is late next season have the virus not work, and Ryan has to be the one to kill Homelander?  Meh.
     
    The shapeshifter was also a huge disappointment.  What is the point of having a character like this if you don't do something FUN with it?  Sure, it was briefly fun that she impersonated Annie and got him to propose to her (after raping him 20 times, sheesh), but they could have done sooooo much more than that.  I couldn't believe they killed her off. So much potential wasted while many other less-interesting characters linger around.
     
    I also never really bought why The Deep and Black Noir II continue to murder whoever Homelander wants them to.  They both voice objections, but then just keep doing it anyway.  Ashley surviving by injecting herself with V was a little funny, but mostly just head-scratching.  Maybe I'm not remembering the lore well, but I thought it was established that all he original supes were created by injecting pregnent moms with V, and they would birth supe offspring.  Since then we've had adults like Butcher, Hughie's dad, and now Ashley injecting themselves and just getting powers with no consequences?  (Well, Hughie's dad died, but that seemed to be from the brain injury he had prior to taking it more than the fact that he took it).  If this works, why are there still so few supes in the world?  Then again maybe next season they will have hundreds of new supes in the government or something.  I dunno.
     
    Homelander was off all season as well.  In the early seasons, he was such a great villain, he felt like an unstoppable, unpredictable force.  The only thing that ever seemed to keep him in line was Stan Edgar, and they never explained why Homelander feared him.  Speaking of that, Esposito returning for that one episode this season was so pointless.  I get that he's such a busy guy he probably only could commit to a few days of shooting, but it would been smarter to write a bunch of scenes that could be pepper throughout the season that actually had him involved in the main story line instead of this forgettable one-episode adventure.  If they don't do something MAJOR with his character next season, I will wonder why they cast Esposito in the role at all!  Anyways, all Homelander did this season was revisit his past... again, talk to himself in the mirror, again, and kill a couple people for no reason.  He wasn't even really dong much to make the government takeover happen.  Singer wanting Neuman dead, him saing that on camera, and Butcher deciding to kill Neuman is what really led to that.  if they don't make him fearful again in the final season, it will be a waste of everyone's talents.
     
    And where was A-Train this entire episode?  At least the joke about writing off his movie instead of releasing it was kinda funny.
     
    Soldier Boy at the end, OK, so all that really is now the bad guys have the weapon that can take supes powers away, so The Boys will have one more thing to worry about when they eventually regroup and save the day.  Speaking of their separation, it was a little fun to see Sam and Cate from Gen V capture Frenchie and Kimiko, Cindy from season 2 capture Hughie, and Love Sausage capture MM, but it was kind of too little, too late.  At least Annie can fly now.

    Finally got around to watching this, I thought it was excellent. Really doesn't deserve its negative reception at all.
     
    The pacing wasn't horrific because I waited till the finale came out to binge it all at once, I think that's the trick with these D+ series. The only thing that stuck out to me was episode 3 seemed to come out of nowhere, I almost wonder if it should've been moved closer to episode 7; but then again you need some time to sit with what you're meant to believe before episode 7 reveals the truth, or else the twist doesn't work so well.

    Well I thought that was a pretty good ending.  A lot was explained, mostly satisfyingly.  What I wasn't expecting was how it does not wrap everything up like a miniseries would/should; They clearly want a second season, and left in several huge hooks in it.  I think I'd be down for another season, especially if the weaker aspects of season 1 are replaced with better ideas for a second season.
     
    Almost right away one of my qualms of the season was attended to, with a nice chase through outer space.  That was so nice to finally get!  It wasn't particularly long or important in any way to the plot, but it looked pretty cool.  Still hope for more land-based chase scenes next season.  I also quite enjoyed all the lightsaber battles.  Sol vs Qimir was really cool!  Qimir popping out a tiny lightsaber from the hilt of his big one was kinda funny at first, but then I rolled with it.  Mae Vs Osha fist-fight was pretty good too.  The resolution of all that fighting was pretty interesting, with Osha being the one to kill Sol when no one's life was in danger or anything.  But I kind of like where things ended up, which is that Mae and Osha aren't really twins, and they aren't really one good and one bad; They're both good and both bad.  I also kind of like that basically, the witches here were able to tap into Force powers no one else has a clue about (creating life), but that the hubris of the Jedi got them all killed and now no one knows how to do that or what it all even means.  Well, I guess the guy lurking in the shadows is trying to find out, and will eventually create Anakin with this power?
     
    I can't say I was shocked that Sol didn't survive the season, but I never found anything to like about his character anyway so its no big loss for me.  I was more surprised that Vernestra ended up sort of being the real bad guy of the season; Qimir's former master, covers up everything that happened here, blames it all on Sol, and then probably tries to lie to Yoda about it all?  Or can he see through her bullshit?  I wish the scene had gone on so we'd know...
     
    Qimir is probalby the standout and best character of the season (besides the fun sidekick nature of Bazil and Pip).  Not only were all his lightsaber battles incredibly fun to watch, but I liked his silly helmet, and that we still don't understand a lot of what he's trying to really do (but I wouldn't want to go another entire season without learning everything).  I didn't understand why his eyes were turning black while trying to take his helmet off Osha; Was she doing that to him?  Or was the hiding in the shadows guy? Or something else?  And how did he learn how to wipe minds?  And it is permanent?  Also, since I'm not a book-reader, comic-reader, or cartoon-watcher, I had no idea what was going on with Osha's lightsaber turning red.  I mean, it was clear from context that it meant she was doing something evil now, but why that would cause a lightsaber to change colors is beyond me.  As just a movie-watcher, I always just figured that each person chose their own lightsaber color, nice and simple.  I guess some author at some point decided it needed to be more complicated than that for some reason?
     
    So overall, not the best Star Wars show (Andor 1, Mandalorian 1, and Mandalorian 2 are all better), but not the worst either (Obi-Wan and Book of Boba are still at the bottom; Ahsoka and Mandalorian 3 are kind of tied with this as being in the middle).  If it does get a second season, I do think i has potential to be much better than this, now that some groundwork is laid, and feedback is received about what worked and what didn't.  We'll see if it gets it.

    During the latter part of the end credits there was an especially powerful and wonderful cue that I'm not sure was used in one of the episodes themselves. Can't wait to listen to the 2nd volume!
