I imagine Jessica Jones and Punisher is cancelled too but they won't announce that until those next seasons are out.
At this stage I would expect that both of those won't be being renewed either, yeah. To be honest there was rather a pattern forming so this isn't entirely a surprise. (They aren't going away completely, the produced seasons sound like they are still going to be available on Netflix for the forseeable future, there just won't be any more.)
Yes, I can't see any more seasons being comissioned after this Daredevil news, I was just wondering what we know is already in the can and can still look forward to. I had a feeling we knew there was another Punisher due around Feb.
So the other day Netflix announced that they were getting Evangelion. Yaaay.
It's just been announced that they'll be redubbing it. F*cks sake.
any word on whether they are going to put it up with subs as well? Or is it going to be dub only?
I would imagine it would have English subtitles as an option like other Netflix shows though whether these are specially written or transcribed from the new audio we will have to see. I suspect the latter. Streaming services tend to be English-centric.
Just got through season one of Iron Fist - I have to admit, I enjoyed this a lot! It might have been going in with lowered expectations, but it just sort of kept moving and kept me interested. Luke Cage was undoubtedly technically better but it didn't nearly engage me as much.
Realised that I missed something while watching it regarding Clare and The Hand, so Daredevil season 2 is next.
Getting somewhat frustrated with Netflix tbh. I want to get through these Marvel series while still subscribing, but the constant silent dropping of films and series is starting to be a major problem for me.
For example, the other day I agreed with my daughter that we'd watch The LEGO Movie on there before going to the cinema for the sequel - lo and behold as of today The LEGO Movie is no longer available. It'd only been on there for a couple of months, it was on my watchlist, and now it is silently gone. Bad way to treat customers.
I have no problem with Netflix dropping things: it's how licences work. My issue is that the service should have a 'last chance to see' or 'going soon' alert on things. I've added films to my watchlist and then they vanish before I can watch them.
Amazon Prime does show what is falling off the service though that is hard to find due to the clunky interface.
Well, that's my problem with it really. The whole user experience around it is terrible - not only no notifications (at least if it's in your watchlist drop a notification that it will be gone soon!), but it's like they pretend the movie was never even there once it has gone - not even a "sorry! we don't have this anymore, why not check out these others?" kind of page.
It would be so easy to do this better I have to ask myself what they gain from not improving it.
Finished Titans last night. This was a good series, I wasn't a fan of the cliffhanger though. It needed a bit more closure. But, if you liked the Marvel stuff they did, then this is a good DC take, well recommended.
Erm, so Polar. New Netflix film based on a Dark Horse comic. Not seen a film quite so violent for a long time. Visually very exaggerated to suit a comic book style; contrast and saturation turned up and lots of grimly dark humour with the blood. Not quite Sin City but going for that vibe. Probably come twenty years too late stylistically. Matt Lucas as an OTT villian might work if you don't know him, but Little Britain and Nardole are a hard legacy to shrug off.
Have to say, I can't be doing with a lot of the extreme violence you get these days, it puts me right off. I'm currently 5 episodes into Daredevil season 2, and it's a testament to how good everything else is that the gore and stuff hasn't turned me away (and I do literally turn away from the screen sometimes).
In DD it sometimes feels a bit gratuitous. I found Jessica Jones season 1 used it much more effectively, to shock and unsettle at the right moments.
Finally got to watching some of The Toys That Made Us. The Transformers one is a good consolidation of what we all know already. Didn't learn much but it was good to see it all put together with visuals. It being TFs are still part of my daily life it didn't but any nostalgia buttons. Conversely, the Star Wars one I found fascinating because I know sod all about that line's history but was heavily into it before Transformers. I may now have to stick an order in for the six original mould 3.75" SW figures due soon.
Labyrinth is my favourite film of all time and I worship the Muppets, but I've never been a fan of The Dark Crystal. I admire it like a fine painting, but that's all. I guess I see it as an experiment that led on to a truly great film (Labyrinth). But it made 'The Lord of the Rings' look light-hearted and easy-going.
Little is known about this goblin beyond its dual role as an offensive weapon and teapot.
Watched episode one tonight. Superb. Stylistically matches the film perfectly with cgi enhancements that blend with the puppets rather than jarring. Some of this is so close to the film it's hard to comprehend they're not using the same sets. Really going to enjoy this!
