    Docteur Qui got a reaction from Yavar Moradi in Star Wars IX The Rise of Skywalker (JJ Abrams 2019)   
    There are few things in this world I'd less rather watch than YouTubers spending hours complaining about Star Wars. And this is coming from someone who recently watched a 5-hour video of someone complaining about Doctor Who.

    Source music and diegetic music aren't the same. You both described the latter. Source music just refers to the fact that it was not particularly written for the film, but instead taken from a pre-existing source and used for the film. There's intradiegetic music on one and extradiegetic music on the other hand; and then there's the source music on one and the score on the other hand. I'm not quite sure what pre-existing, however, newly arranged pieces would qualify as.

    No he's totally referring to Williams's fantastic cartoon pastiche. The best part is that he says it'll be replaced with a march or something - which is, I'm sure, an intentional reference to the sorts of music people more commonly associate with Williams.

    I've always found it quite funny that Hammond points out the score as being temporary and will eventually be replaced, despite the fact that the music is obviously incredibly detailed and was clearly written, orchestrated and recorded (spared no expense) specifically for that animation, sync points and all. What kind of monster would replace that? Still, it fits with his character arc I guess. Hammond is a stand-in for the Hollywood producer tyrants.

    Should be called “10,000 spin-offs” at this rate. 
     
    I wonder just how bad the Naomi Watts one must’ve been to not make it past the pilot.

    FWIW, I was happy to see the new rules.  Granted, I'm largely a lurker, but I'd started visiting less and less (even swearing off the site entirely) because the content of some posts was really getting to me.  I just felt increasingly unwelcome, even in the shadows.  Here's hoping change is good!

    Docteur Qui got a reaction from bruce marshall in Star Trek Discovery   
    I thought E2 was decent. Really, anything heavy on Saru taking the lead is good in my book. He’s a great captain and the best character on the show. Probably the only character you could put in any other Trek series and fit right in (apart from Pike, who needs his own show already). Actually can we just have a show with Pike, Saru and Number 1? That would be great. No-one needs the evil bisexual Georgiou show that’s been rumoured. She’s exhausting.

    I’m enjoying this season. It’s much better than Picard. That was such a wet fart of a show.

    Just watched it. Too many thoughts to organize. 
     
    Generally agree with the consensus that the first 7 episodes were aces and everything after that brilliant song that ended that has not been as good. 
     
    I could have envisioned (heh) a million ways the story could have gone with all the pieces they had set up at that point... And none of them would have been this ending. 
     
    The first 7 eps felt like a cool new thing. The rest felt like MCU product #3486 that is setting up MCU products 5934,7083,and 9431

    Docteur Qui reacted to TSMefford in WandaVision SHOW Discussion   
    Somehow I missed hearing about Secret Invasion. That's probably it. They could've still done this without completely wasting her character in the final episode.
     
    I mean perhaps? Idk. My gripe is that there's not enough for me personally to pick up on that. He ends up getting sidelined as well in the final episode and doesn't really have a proper resolution after being built up and featured more heavily in the first 7.
     
    Well, yes, definitely it was hinted. That's why it's on my build-up with no payoff list. They talk about it, have these horrific moments where their true pain is revealed, but it didn't go anywhere. The townspeople just end up glaring at Wanda for the most part in the final episode and I'm like...really? Thats it? I just think since they were all experiencing her pain and her nightmares they could've explored that more. Especially since these characters are, again, featured more heavily in the first 7. 
     
    The first 7 episodes and the final two feel like two completely different shows or that they were written by two completely different people. There's lots of build-up that doesn't get resolved or paid off. Quite disappointing to me.

    I thought that was a really disappointing season finale. Reminded me of most Marvel films; they start with an interesting premise but just devolve into boring CGI fighting by the end.
     
    I didn't feel any stakes in the final showdown between Wanda and Agatha. Side-characters developed throughout the season just stood around watching things unfold, serving no real purpose.

    Folk tunes are difficult to credit. Like, who composed the "Dies Irae" anyway? They're just part of the international vernacular. So I think it's fairly unproblematic to incorporate them into a score, should it be necessary.

    Docteur Qui got a reaction from GerateWohl in WandaVision SHOW Discussion   
    Man that wasn’t good. As soon as the witches(!) in the opening scene started blasting colour-coded CGI at each other my worst fears about this show came true. It’s fully devolved into boring by-the-numbers Marvel. Even Kathryn Hahn was barely watchable, not at all helped by the terrible dialogue given to her. All her charisma has been sapped in what has amounted to a moustache-twirling villain. Looks like next week will be Vision vs Vision, no real story closure and likely Banana Cabbagepatch will show up in a two-second cameo advertising his next movie.
     
    I also saw the trailer for Falcon/Winter Soldier, and I couldn’t be less interested in it. What a shame.

    To be fair, she’s largely been a character actor by trade, relegated to supporting parts in romcoms and guest roles in sitcoms, so most people wouldn’t have noticed her. This is probably her most high-profile role yet.

    I always find it amusing when some actor I've loved for a long time suddenly gets all kinds of recognize for a random role.  Like how did people miss all the great work she's been doing for 20 years before WandaVision?
     
    She's terrific

    I will say that I enjoyed the last two episodes, despite some of the cliché narrative trappings of Marvel Universe syndrome, the charisma of the two leads really elevated the humour of it all. Maybe this show just had a really pedestrian start. Either way, I'm on board for what's next.
