Time flies! I swear, last I remember that WandaVision was premiering yesterday. Now, the Loki series is coming up this Wednesday. Loki’s the character I’ve been more familiar with than the previous two Marvel shows. I like the 60’s / 70’s aesthetic the Time Variance Authority seems to have? We’ll see in two days! Ahhh!
Fun fact, I remember walking past the Thor 2: The Dark World signing at Comic-Con! A little girl that was probably under 12 years old went in front of Tom Hiddleston and she started crying. He got up and around the table to hug her and she started crying even more! Oh no! I thought it was super sweet how he thought that would have helped.
I had seen documentaries mention The Black Cauldron tons of times. I went into watching this remembering that the 1980s was where the mythical adventure stories were huge. Mainly, titles like Dungeons and Dragons and The Lord of the Rings cartoon were big. Disney really wanted to tap into this market with this movie.
I think if I saw this as a kid, definitely would have been freaked out by it. There were a lot of intense scenes and the movie was still a bit intense as an adult! I’m surprised there wasn’t a warning about the flashing lights for the lightning or powerful scenes. My eyes hurt and had to look away when that happened. Ouch.
Overall, it was okay though. I don’t know if I really would re-watch it on my own. This would be a re-watch if someone else wanted to see it.
I have been a fan of Olan Rogers for years. I knew of his Final Space concept pilot way back when and was equally excited to hear that it made it to TV! I’m still surprised it feels like ages ago when the first season aired in 2018, but in reality that’s not too long ago.
Occasionally I go back to some of Olan’s old videos and it’s still hilarious even though I’ve seen it many of times. I love that Olan got to use a lot of his voices he would do in the videos in Final Space! I remember Olan mentioned he wanted it to have an overarching story through the season.
If something happened in the first episode, it would still matter in the last episode. I’m starting to realize I like that style of show and if it’s a series I started from day one and had fifty episodes? That’s fine. If it’s a “weekly monster” style series, then it depends. My attention span is changing as I get older!
Aahhh! I left a response to Olan that said hopefully Final Space can continue as long as he wants it to. But if it doesn’t, a lot of fans will be excited to see what Olan has in store next.
