After Mulan was a flop they're going for "Raya, the last dragon"

Probably another flop.

Starring Kelly Marie Tran (of TLJ fame) and a rapper named "Awkwafina" who became famous for a song called "My Vag." Fuck me.

Is it too late to nationalize companies that have clearly became slaves to the Asian market?

Im actually a fan of Awkwafina, possibly the best voice actor of the dark crystal series.

Disney almost needs.to be broken up anyway, they seriously own too much content after they bought Fox and SW.

Why do you have doubts about her being the best voice actor of the dark crystal series? Who was the completion, her best rival?

Let me rephrase that, she was the best voice actress/actor on the series playing the collector.

2nd best was whoever played Chamberlain " Yeeeeeess"

While were at it, things there are too damn many of...

Fast and Furious- Didnt like the first one, still don't.

Walking dead- The best zombie take I've seen. I watched up until they got to the farm. Now they're going on the 3rd Series from that.

So you watched the first season, basically. Farm is pretty boring until the 2nd half of the season when shane ends up doing things.

The downside of American cinema dominance + MBAs who only see revenue streams to be optimized no matter where they look. Disney only cares about entertainment as a source of revenue to be made more predictable and grown. Bunch of suits. It's just a factory that takes as input powerpoint presentations about the size of the Chinese market and outputs the finest in pandering pablum.

The movie industry feels hyper-focused on lowering the variance in returns on mega budget tentpoles. Thus the sameness and pandering. I would love to see a new player willing to take on the higher variance, medium budget projects which were the bread and butter back when American entertainment industry came to its position of dominance.

Obaminated, Yeah, I think it was a little into season 2 but not much. Idk, never a big zombie guy. But as far as zombie flicks go it was good.

Im still rooting for a Legacy of Kain series (Vampires/wraiths and lovecraftian elder gods)

With TWD I could get past the zombies and all that fun stuff but no way could I believe they were in rural Georgia and couldn't find guns and ammo.

I watched up to where the baby was born in the prison but was mostly over it before then.

I still watch the show, its a fun and mindless show at this point. They were using cars waaaaay to long. That gas wouldve gone bad way sooner than they did in the show.
