Plus: Warner Bros. steps on a rocket-powered rake.
I wish I lived in the timeline in which you reviewed The Holdovers (which I loved).
This episode made me want to drink and hide under the covers
Really good discussion, especially the end regarding comic books and Marvel’s treatment of other worlds.
The problem I have the GOTHG3 (G3) was what was said about Dark Phoenix. During G3 a planet with a modern (to us) civilization is destroyed, but hey we rescued some baby racoons.
What the award-winning Alyssa said here was spot on. “There is a generation of art that we have missed because of this.”
Apparently, they've reversed their decision. So glad because I really WANT to see this movie! https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/coyote-vs-acme-wb-warners-canceled-reversal-shop-film-1235645372/
Re the WB decision.
Boy, While E. Coyote suing acme sounds like a riot, I hope we do get to see it some day!
Regarding the tax decision. My first instinct is to think it’s a failed tax policy if it’s more profitable for value to be destroyed on purpose. That said, it’s good to encourage risk taking but at what cost to the taxpayer and the overall good of society?
I didn’t think The Marvels was a terrible film, I’m just not as invested in the whole project as I was ten years ago. They’re essentially the same stories which is fine if you have great characters. Unfortunately Marvel still, somehow, struggles to write good villains.
Some movies are so enjoyable that people might want to purchase a copy so they can watch it whenever they want and not fund a poor business model.
Hockey fans who have watched Slapshot over and over again know all about tax writeoffs.
Local news announced last night that Warner Brothers was making it available to other streaming services.
The schadenfreude will be good.
