A tree frog has decided that he likes to hang out on our front door every night around sunset.

I tip my hat to this noble amphibian. My wife screams "KILL IT KILL IT".

But thank you for your suggestion.

By the by, are the Grandmaster's troops specifically modeled after Celestials (I'm SURE I saw three of the guys on the right) or were they just generically homaging Kirby? Because, on a second viewing, holy crap every aspect of Sakaar's design, from the architecture to the ships to the room decor is so Kirby it crackles.

Also I want to get the soundtrack but I dunno if I should get just the specific TRON bits or the whole dang thing.

On Thorst (thank you for teaching me this good word): Thor was already the hottest (Capn would have been a contender were it not for that criminally shaved chest), and the haircut has only made him hotter, though the eye's a bit of a turnoff imo (weird detached eyepatches are bad, that is just a shitty monocle, you have to tie that shit off to something to become a True Space Pirate)

Though now that I've said that, I weirdly want to see every one of those scenes where Spooky Cate Blanchett summons her Magic Helmet, except it's Thor and he's walking the same way and using the same gesture (and wearing the same outfit???) except he summons his long hair back instead. Or maybe just the same Magic Helmet? Idk, my imagination's firing on all cylinders right now, will report back

He summons his hair with lightning, but the sparks in his fingers generate static electricity and instead of flowing locks or a cosmic helmet he ends up with a blond afro.

It was great. I laughed my ass off, which is exactly what I want to do while watching a Marvel Movie.

I regret to inform you, BEAT, that your wife's new favorite superhero is going to have to become Adam Warlock. I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but you deserve to know.

Oh shit, I forgot --who IS going to take that role? Is it too early to fantasy-cast Space Hippie Golden Jesus?

Hmm... Thor Odinson, Director of SHIELD?

Or maybe some feathered 70s / 80s hair.

Now I want them to cast an african-american woman in the role, just to screw up with expectations.

Whole dang, probably. The movie had an awesome soundtrack.

Also, I really wouldn't be surprised if they went after the Celestials specifically for inspiration. The director said they were going for full Kirby for the Sakaar scenes, and I'm sure they mined all sorts of inspirations. I bet there will be some cool easter eggs to find for Kirby-obsessed people.

The new Deadpool 2 trailer is a work of art.

Saw Thragnarok yesterday with my roommates. It was good! I was worried that the comedy would intrude on the drama, but it seems like they found a good balance. I also loved the soundtrack. It was so utterly unique from the usual orchestral pieces that accompany Marvel films.

The showing we attended had some technical difficulties, though... the movie cut out for about five minutes in the middle, then they were able to get back the picture but not the audio, then they had to rewind the film to the point before the interruption... But hey, we got a free ticket on the way out.

I'm actually kind of curious: if Thor does make it back to Earth with the Asgardians, will we get some variation on this scene?

Maybe on a much smaller scale? Thor would definitely be upset at the whole business, but MCU Tony isn't nearly as much as an unrepentant asshole as that guy in the comics, and isn't enough of an asshole to clone Thor as a mindless enforcer.

I'm pretty sure the issue of superheroing in the age of the Accords is gonna come up early in Avengers: if..., have some argument between Tony, Cap, and Thor, probably have a minor scuffle between them, then get the issue out of the way.
