Star Trek: Picard left a bad taste in my mouth so I decided to start rewatching Enterprise. I'm certain it would've lasted for more than four seasons if they stuck with a more traditional orchestral opening theme instead of the soft rock they went for.

So presumably if you can timestamp the intro sequence for each episode, and knew what you were doing, you could replace the current intro with this one?

22958 How'd You Like "The Irishman" (2019)?
I really enjoyed this film and it's growing on me more and more since I saw it last week. I'm perfectly happy to hear people slate things I enjoy, but all the negative things I see people saying about it are just wrong opinions. I was totally focused on it throughout and the final half an hour might have been my favourite part of the whole film. Youngest De Niro looks bad, but other than that the youngification didn't bother me because it was a necessity for this kind of story (it's not the same as resurrecting Peter Cushing like in that God awful Rogue One film). A story which I don't think is getting enough credit for how well it weaves together all the different eras it takes place it.

That fish conversation's going to baffle people from now until the heat death of the Universe, at least it has me.

Has anyone else noticed how annoying and empty a personality Stacey is? She has no interests, no agency, all she does is whine about things for Gavin to sort out.
Not that Gavin has much of a personality either, she just whines and he runs around trying to make her happy. They're both completely boring.

Lads, I'm trying to track down a film I saw one night on Channel 4 years ago.

The gist of it is a guy pretending to be a photographer scams his way across Italy. Is joined by a woman running away from a convent. Then after conning a mafia funeral he ends up jailed.

I know it wasn't a fever dream.

There is still fun to be had. And it is hard for me to separate all of my knowledge collected over the years from what someone would be able to pick up fresh, if that makes sense.

I might be being a bit harsh. It probably is a fine film to shovel popcorn into your mouth too. There is nothing wrong with it as such.

It is a detective story, but not a mystery that I think the audience can solve among with the characters. I don't think in 10 years it will be remembered for anything other than its novelty.

As someone who was massively into pokemon as a 10 year old in the late 90s, at the height of gen 1 popularity, I honestly felt like it was a movie aimed squarely at people like me. It barely featured any newer pokemon, and has Deadpool in it.

I mean it makes sense really. A lot of people my age or thereabouts probably have kids by now, and it's the oldest trick in the book to make a kids film that the parents secretly like just as much because of nostalgia.

It wasn't his best but it was still pretty solid. Decent anecdotal commentary on the waxing and waning of Hollywood celebrity culture, cancel culture, and other cancers of the modern world.

To claim Dave Chappelle is "anti-woke" is laudable. The article - and many others like it - don't even touch on his lampooning of the hate crime hoax that was the Jussie Smollett case. Writers like Taylor Hosking live in blissful ignorance and hold fast to their beliefs of a false dichotomy between comedy and commentary where there may be no moderate middle ground.

The one on the left is potentially a bit of a minx, but I assumed she was a young looking forty-something who had slightly overdone it on the foundation rather than someone in their late twenties.

There's only one contestant over the age of 40, so I suspect this series might be duller than usual.

I wasn't expecting much from this, but I was pleasantly suprised. There was only a couple of properly on-the-nose bits of satire and it did a lot more than mug off at superhero films.

Shame about Urban's wonky accent and I took a little while to warm up to the main character after he sold a woman a "premium" HDMI cable in one of the first scenes.

I just came off a binge watch of the show I loved it.

I've only read the first couple but the plot is quite different in where Compound-V fits into the universe and that changes everything. They also tweeked it to critique the phenomenon of the MCU in the real world.

Simon Pegg is in it playing his own father as a nod to the comic.

Kyle Urban is a fine Butcher maintaining both his sinister streak and his charm, (unfortunately his cockney accent is a bit uncanny valley at times).

Superheroes are less the subject of ridicule to sneer at in this and more treated as terrifying things you would never want to exist. There are still elements of the nods and winks of poking fun in the comics but more subdued, it is more 'gritty' I'd say.

My biggest criticism is one of the locations they shot at feels more like a counter strike level than the real world. Complete with barrels and waist high crumbled concrete walls to hide behind. which on the scale of criticism is pretty low.

Homelander comes across as the most interesting and complex character.
