Loki's reviews are here!



Reviews embargo for Marvel Studios Loki lifted today and reviews have been coming in the past few hours. Critics were given the first two episodes to review.

Currently the show is sitting at 96% on Rotten Tomatoes with 51 reviews.

The critics consensus says: A delightful diversion from the MCU as we know it, Loki successfully sees star Tom Hiddleston leap from beloved villain to endearing antihero -- with a little help from the delightful Owen Wilson -- in a series that's as off-kilter, charming, and vaguely dangerous as the demigod himself.

The first episode of Loki will drop at midnight PST on Disney+

Nike celebrates its Greek namesake with misspelled special edition



Nike is celebrating the Greek goddess of victory by releasing a special pair Nike Air Force 1. The sneakers are white with metallic accents and many details alluding to victory and the goddess, like wings, olive branches and her name in Greek lettering, however many Greek users on social media have pointed out that Greek letters ΠΙΚΣ are wrong. It says "PIKS" instead of NIKE. Raising remarks of Anglo centrism while using a foreign language to spell a foreign word and while probably the point is to appeal to Anglophones, the name is still supposed to be Greek, it being akin to having a tattoo in a foreign language worded all wrong.

Article claims that Hollywood is in fact NOT out of ideas



Dana Schwartz, a writer on the She-Hulk TV series, says people are being too mean toward Hollywood.

Key points and quotes from the article:

-She praises Cruella, calling it a "goddamn delight."

-Criticizes men on Twitter who complain that: “Ugh, Hollywood only wants superhero movies and sequels and IP projects when they could be making my original screenplay that I wrote and no one wants to read!”

-"Just because a film is based on a property that already exists doesn’t make the film itself inherently any less creative. Almost all movies are based on something."

-“Hollywood writers” are not out of ideas so much as “audiences everywhere in the world” don’t really go see small arthouse films en masse."

According to Slate, in the book, two teens named Vivi and Savannah discuss plans for Vivi to hide out in the attic of Savannah’s house without Savannah’s parents’ knowledge. “You’re suggesting I hide here all summer?” Vivi asks. “Like … like Anne Frank?” The two friends laugh at this, but Vivi thinks to herself, “Is it really funny, and is Vivi so far off base?”

Christian Bale is already set to star in the film as a detective investigating a series of murders at West Point. He partners with a young detail-oriented cadet to solve the murders, the cadet in question being a young Edgar Allan Poe.

The Duffer brothers are apparently big Anne of Green Gables fans and specifically wanted her on the show.

Welcome to The OC Bitches - 1x07 "The Escape" with Matt Ramsay




Some things to note:

  • Matt Ramsay (editor) guests on this episode and notes that these episodes were shot on film which is why its so grainy

  • They did not address the negative backlash from last weeks episode and Rachels rude remarks towards Mischa's experience on the show. ET even wrote about it!

  • Rachel clearly hates her character and doesn't know what "keto" is (also doesn't pronounce it properly which is like, how?)

  • Melinda changed rooms a couple episodes ago and ever since I've kept noticing the blown up photo hanging on the wall behind her. Finally got around to googling cast photoshoots and realized this is a cast photo from season 4. I just find it interesting that she hung up the only cast photo that Mischa wasn't in. It is a nice photo though in formal wear.

Discussion post! Though not I'm sure it deserves one. Podcast is v low quality imo. It'd be different if it was an actual rewatch like The Hills rewatch with Whitney and her husband, which is fun and light and behind-the-scenesy. This is just a verbal recap of the show with extended sometimes technical convos with guests that I often don't care about but somehow muster enough energy to create a post about.

Baby Lilybet isn't even a week-old and she's already putting in work...

On Sunday, Meghan and Harry announced the happy news that their new kid had been born and named, Lilibet Diana. Now, in a SANE world, this kind of news deserved to be greeted with a shrug and a 'whatever, good luck to the kid.'

Instead, the last few days have brought a flurry of nonsense that ... not even I anticipated to get this nuts. But maybe this old broad did...

Although Charlotte and Thierry have been trying to play it on the down-low, the unfortunate cuck Vittorio is pulling no punches and has laid Charlotte's shit bare in the media:

“Charlotte and I are in the process of getting divorced – she wants to get remarried. [She] is getting married to Thierry Gillier, the ex-husband of her sister.”

Whew. Ain't no gossip like high-society gossip.

Would u cheat on your twin?

Loki series premiere recap



The series premiere of Loki dropped on Disney+ today.

[Spoiler (click to open)]
Not much happened in the premiere really, it was basically a setup episode.
Following the event of Endgame, the Loki that escaped with the Tesserect is captured by the "hunters" of the organization known as the "Time Variance Authority".
At the TVA, Loki is accused being a "variant", someone who tires to change the "sacred timeline", and is sentenced to be "reset" (we don't really know what that means).
Meanwhile, Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) of the TVA is following a variant who has been hard to capture and has been killing the TVA's hunters.
As Loki is about to be "reset", Mobius requests the judge (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) that she let him take Loki so he can help them capture the dangerous variant who has been killing their hunters.
A reluctant Loki accompanies Mobius, who gives him a glimpse of his future including how Loki was (or will be) the one responsible for his mother's death. (soooo much talking...)
Loki tries to escape but fails.
He looks at the rest of his future including him finally bonding with Thor (clips from Ragnarok) and his death (by the hands of Thanos in Endgame). Loki stands broken and crying and finally stops trying to escape.
Mobius then proposes that Loki help them capture the variant. When Loki wonder why he should help them, Mobius tells him because the person they are trying to capture is Loki himself (presumably from another timeline)
