And it's disconcerting to see Cletus so serious since he typically exhibits a dark and macabre sense of humor similar to Deadpool's, or being played up as a sympathetic character(I mean, Carnage is arguably even more of a monster than the Joker, who at least was hinted to be a decent human being at some point in his life before he went insane). But again, that's just me nitpicking
    Yeah, it's a noticeably different take from the comics, same with Eddie and his symbiote. But I found it enjoyable at least, and the dynamic between Cletus and Shriek was the most compelling part of the movie for me.

    As for the bond between the symbiotes and their hosts. I'm mainly unused to seeing the symbiotes have such distinct personalities. In any other medium they're clearly seperate entities but move with such a unified sense of purpose that they more or less become on entity, which is where they get their greater power from.

    In short, the movie makes a lot of changes from the comics, both big and small. But none of it was like frustrating or anything like that. Again, it's an enjoyable monster action movie.

    Trying to think of a good match up for Arthur from Fire Force.

    Mostly because his fight scene with Dragon was one of the best fights of the year so far, by a long shot.

    But he's also a bit tricky to pitch without overkilling one way or the other.

    First one that popped into my head is Grougaloragran from Wakfu, as he was when fighting Nox of course.

    I think Arthur might be out of his league by the end. Grougalouragran is basically discount Dragon with a slightly better esoteric game.

    And Arthur's offensive power was just ridiculous given that Dragon had literally never felt pain before despite everything else he'd been hit with in the series.

    Arthur not only causes him pain but actually hurts him.

    Dune (2021) was good. I only had three real complaints (none of these are spoilers):

    -The music can be a bit much (that vocalization music in the trailer, well you’ll hear a lot more in the movie). It’s fine music, I just think they may have played that too much.

    -The ‘vision filter’ when Paul has some if his visions (and he has a lot). It’s….not the best in my opinion.

    -No narration/internal thoughts. Say what you will about the original Dune movie, but I really liked the explanation narration we got throughout AND the internal thoughts/monologues we got from some of the characters. My brother and I found it missing here and were disappointed.


    Otherwise, it’s quite good. Good acting, beautiful set pieces, great CGI, and I can’t wait for Part 2.

    Saw Dune last night, enjoyed it, thought the cast and acting were fantastic, movie was gorgeous and an easy IMAX purchase, if there was a negative it was that the pacing felt a bit too fast despite being a two parter

    also really like how seriously it takes itself, was worried they might try to include some banter or snark or something that would have really clashed with the tone of the story

    I don't think I'm really feeling the Chucky TV Series. Way too much CW Tweeb Drama not enough Chucky Killing.

    Just heard about the Alec Baldwin thing… Damn. That’s absolutely tragic.

    Incredibly sad But the amount of people I'm seeing blame Baldwin is disturbing. It was a freak accident that, ultimately, rests at the feet of the prop master.
