Moon Knight series
« on: January 20, 2022, 09:24:46 AM »
I am almost completely unfamiliar with this character.  I find myself intrigued by this trailer, but have no clue if it's remotely faithful.

When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

I hope the first episode's tact of skipping all the good stuff doesn't continue as the series moves forward.

The first episode literally covered just about everything I know about the character.  Looking forward to seeing where the next five episodes go.

Khonshu's voice reminds me too much of Tom Hardy's Venom.

I like what I've seen thus far. I hope they can stick the landing, Marvel's iffy about that.

Episode 3 went back to annoying jump cuts.  The whole Marc and Stephen situation is tugging on vague memories I have about Ba and Ka from White Wolf's Mummy RPG.

I need to make myself a GIF of the last shot in episode 4.

The hippo goddess with its cheery demeanor gave me strong Kabae-from-Aggretsuko vibes.

Also, I looked away for a minute in the beginning.  Was I imagining that was Phil Coulson when I looked back up?  There was a guy in a suit standing in front of a wall full of lit alcoves with Egyptian statuettes in them, then he turned and walked away.  It was kinda shadowy.

That was Osiris's avatar.

Urg.  There were things I liked about this series, but it overused the skip-past-large-sections-of-action gimmick.  Usually rendering scenes either confusing or anti-climatic.  And it ended rather lamely.
