Netflix will do a Cowboy Beebop live action series. Twitter is losing its shit, as if they're forced to watch it, or as if it replaced the original anime.

I think it's a challenge to adapt an extremely popular anime into a live action series, and I don't see what it would add to the franchise, but I can still watch the original if I want to. I don't get this "you're ruining it" mental breakdown mindset among fans of, uhm, most anything.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

I have found Netflix's live action anime adaptations pretty pointless, tbf.

Was Barb Wire not a  good enough Casablanca remake for you?
"Love to my country actuates my present conduct, however it may appear inconsistent to the world, who very seldom judge right of any man's actions."

"...this was a bitter tormented soul, a sinner who mocked both gods and men. He served but found no pride in service. He fought but took no joy in victory. He drank, to drown his pain in a sea of wine. He did not love, nor was he loved himself."

I hope they'll soon get bored with selling kids cartoons to adults.

Venom was indeed rather terrible. Somehow it has made piles of money.

FWIW, Venom has a 7/10 rating on imdb. Catwoman, 3.3.

And Superman v Batman has a rating above 4 as well, IMDb doesn't really matter anymore.

Venom has a metascore of 35 and Catwoman has 27.

And I know why I don't like imdb's ranking: people have a horrible taste in movies.

https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/venom_2018

29% from critics vs 86% from moviegoers. :bleeding:

I find movie scores to be well over-rated.
a 6/10 movie is barely watchable.

I suspect they don't really track fake accounts that boost scores for some studios.

Daredevil cancelled.
I struggle to be upset about the Netflix marvel shows ending. Though they were once great I have not managed to make myself watch the new series.
