Everything he ever describes as "game changing" or "revolutionary" or "medium challenging" always gets forgotten. I still remember the Scott Pilgrim sperg out when that film didn't get the recognition he thought it deserved and now over a decade later, it's nothing more than a curious nerdy footnote.

It's a movie where a whiny hipster nerd gets to beat up Captain America and make out with two attractive chicks... when his only discernible skill is video game references and liking pretentious music.

No wonder every basement dweller on the Internet loves it, Bob included.

It's also why Bobby still rags on The Expendables evwry chance he gets... still bitter Sly Stallone kicked Michael Cera's teeth in at the box office.

It's hard to know where to put punctuation when Bob's diatribes have inconsistently few pauses between sentences. If you find any grammar mistakes or offences, please take it all with a big grain of [sic].

Full Transcript:

_____And now here's Loki in which Marvel puts their in-house developed impishly handsome wiry English dark dream boat back to work while cramming Doctor Who, The Good Place, and The Blacklist pureed into a more meta than meta brunch smoothier [sic] streaming series while glancing around, avoiding eye contact with excessive fake humility high-whispering: "Oh gee I wonder if TV reviewers are gonna like this exact specific combination of ingredients I mean it's not like we got this down to a science or anything no but really do you like it?" (cue Lisa Simpson clip saying yes)

_____But yes, big fucking shock, Marvel, the Hollywood studio answer to a 3.0 GPA that still got into hobbit thanks to shockingly deep extracurricular numbers and a mall karate blue belt counting for two extra gym credits, appears to at least from the outset to have crafted another above average streaming miniseries by pairing a smorgasbord of story ideas and supporting characters from its 80 year history of comic book weirdness, fresh creative talent eager to prove their worth to the new fuedal lords of the entertainment kingdom, a studio chief possibly genetically engineered by DARPA to save the American movie industry, and whichever name stars from the cinematic universe were not currently shooting a feature but were still interested in a nice new car, boat, or addition to their house.

_____Time will tell of course whether or not it has a chance of measuring up to Wandavision's medium challenging genre redefining emotional powerhouse, or Falcon and the Winter Soldier's occasionally awkward but admirably gutsy topical boldness but right now it feels prime to scratch the particular itch for quirky takes of big sci-fi metaphysical story conceits being turned inside-out by rye [sic], deadpan actors in an unfolding mystery maze plot that fans of such things may have been missing between other, bigger properties while also giving Tom Hiddleston an immediately intruiging new context in which to play around with the character he's taken ownership of like few blockbuster-level actors in recent memory, that fans should find instantly satisfying and yes, it looks as though these stripe of marvel fan that will tune in regardless to pour over every frame, seeking clues to futre storylines, will find themselves more than serviced as well, though, thus far thankfully not at the expense of more casual viewers I'll [sic]. <-- (prolly an editing mistake)

_____Note that I am aiming to keep this review by my definition "spoiler free" in terms of specific not-vailable-by-looking-just-at-the-promotions-and-ad-mataerial-plot-details-and-surpises, but given that the series appears to answer at least one, big previously unclarified question of the entire marvel universe "thing" offhandedly within its first 12 minutes, I'd advise those trying to go in completely clean to maybe watch the first one before this review. Okay? Alright. Otherwise- (cue transition)

_____So, in case there was any confusion Loki functions as a kind of direct side-sequel to the second act of Avengers: Endgame i.e [sic] the time travel heist part where in, you'll recall because the future Avengers made a mistake trying to steal the tesseract from their 2012-Avengers-part-1-selves. 2012-still-alive-and-still-evil-Loki was able to grab it back and teleport away, likely creating one of those new butterfly-effect-alternate-reality-timelines proffessor Hulk had warned about. Except it turns out, that's not such a big deal as he finds himself snatched up and thrown into a dystopian cosmic courthouse by very interminating [sic] agents of the Time Variance Authority. (cue clip of Loki getting arrested by the time police for time crimes)

_____A kind of cosmic combination [sic] legal bureaucracy, police force, FBI, detective agency, and court system that exist to chase down variants, which he apparently now IS, for crimes against the sacred timeline. Yeah that big lingering question I mentioned? If you've been wondering between the Quicksilver stuff, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D inconsistencies, the Netflix stuff, et cetera, whether or not there was or was not a mult-eye-verse component to the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Loki has your answer straight off; there is not. (cue sad trombone) But there USED to be, and there could be again maybe but not if the TVA has anything to say about it. See a big conceit here is that apparently there WERE multiple universes at one point, but they kept getting into each other's business and making mult-eye-versal wars and destructive chaos that could've destroyed all realities forever if not for the trio of omnipotent cosmic beings calling themselves "Time Keepers," who whittled everything down to a single "Sacred Timeline," with a predetermined proper continuity of events for well, everything that the TVA is tasked with "protecting." Which chiefly means hunting down variants like Loki who break off their fated path, and in doing so creating alternate timelines which if not deleted in time, could become new realities and restart the mult-eye-verse which would be "bad" according to the Time Keepers, wherever they are.

_____But Loki seemingly lucks into a reprieve from deletion when Owen Wilson's TVA Agent Mobius decides for spoilerly reasons, he might be useful in tracking down an apparently even more dangerous fugitive variant that's skipping around the timeline, murdering entire squads of minute men, TVA enforcers, to steal their special equipment for sinister purposes. Loki agrees, in part because even the TVA random desk clerks seem to massively outpower him and also because the revelation of what supposed to, and what did come of his sacred timeline self has shattered his sense of identity and forced him to confront the TVA's seemingly self-evident commitment to benevolent fatalism versus his own inherence to uniquely chaotic free will, OR both sides are working a double-cross, hence Loki is literally the god of mischief and can't wait to tell anybody who'll listen. He just wants to talk with the time keepers. (cue Loki clip saying COME ON? What did you expect?) Mobius is, well a cop but also a cop that's pulling the: "only a killer can catch a killer" schtick, and the judge obstensibly in charge of their investigation is Gugu Mbatha-Raw as "Ravonna Renslayer," a name Marvel Comics fans should immediately recognize as belonging to the complicated, sometimes romantic interest of Kang the Conqueror, AKA the guy Jonathan Majors is playing in Ant-Man 3 who may or may not be the next major villain for this entire damn mega franchise.

_____Both the first and second episodes additionally conclude with big game-changing reveals as to the nature of the fugitive variant they're chasing that are fun and t-significant [sic] interesting directions that could get very interesting in the remaining 4 episodes but beyond whatever big Marvel reveals or retcons could be awaiting hardcore fans it does appear were back in the Wandavision territory in terms of subgenre. A one time supporting character taking center stage for a personal journey of sci-fi fantasy introspection and self-healing. Well, on the meta narrative side, the Marvel machine engages in some media study self-criticism vis-à-vis its own role as prime arbiter of the new global popular mythology. Where Scarlett Witch's eerily well timed truama-purg [sic] explored the psychology behind retreating into comfort viewing like nostalgia TV and by association the MCU itself, and whether or not this was healthy for us in general, as a therapeutic replacement for coping with grief or anxiety, Loki is both trying to find himself and also seems poised to be a counterargument for the benefits of free will and chaos of a multiverse, in opposition the ordered, quasi-religious fatalism of the TVA. Which of course also seems to represent an internal argument as to exactly how much of the velvet glove, iron fist treatment Marvel should be giving to its own stranglehold on the MCUs famously marketable, shared universe continuity.

_____Whether it succeeds or not at this goal, in fact if these ARE the goals and there isn't some sort of huge, thematic curveball waiting now that episode 2 has dropped its "okay, I guess anything can happen now. " cards on the table will remain to be seen but I find the whole thing extremely encouraging, in part with how laid back it is. Sure, nobody was expecting Wandavision to pull a complete en-medias-res reality break for three full episodes and trust the audience to stick around and catch up, or whereas Falcon and the Winter Soldier took a more complicated route given the material, by opening and sticking with a big movie level action crossed with TV level intrigue but so far Loki has a dialed down, melancholy, TV energy that feels key to both the frequency of TVA's retro 50s, DMV/Data center/Soviet filing office aesthetic, and Owen Wilson's ultra "Owen Wilsony" groove as Mobius, great great casting here as it turns out. Nothing about it feels like it's in a hurry, but Loki, which, fits with the world building and the gives it a fresh, chilled-out tempo for the main character to bounce off of.

_____Bottom line for now; I like the new characters, Hiddleston still works, I'm eager to see where all of this weirdness goes, I'm sure Tara Strong is going to be a fan favorite as Miss Minutes, the cartoon clock who claims to be both alive and a recording but not quite but extremely down for more. Not that I would probably need to say so but I recommend it. this should be a fun ride. (roll credits)

Chris is a day late and a dollar short as usual. I don't even know what he hopes to accomplish with his podcasts or co-founding this network. Pretty much the entire media-entertainment complex purports to be progress and he doesn't really even stand out. He's some smug prick from the Boston suburbs talking about his entertainment, which is something everyone is doing. I would really like to hear him try to convince me why he's even worth a moment of my time. I don't give a rat's ass about Blockbuster and I get the impression that he's tedious as hell to listen to.

The thing is that ”thinking and questioning” is actually how lots of people found God, and you could argue that the Protestant Reformation was a result of Luther questioning Church practices around indulgences.

Does this mean that those dang, dirty Evangelicals are the real Thinkers™?
Let me just point out that about a hundred years ago, a Congressman from Louisiana wanted to introduce hippos to the Mississippi Delta. Obviously, this would have negative effects today, but he supported it based on the same arguments Blob supports putting elephants in West Virginia or whatever. It's almost as if putting animals into ecosystems without knowing what effects they'll have is a bad idea.

Most likely it's something medical that he's assuming has come about because of aging, not his shitty lifestyle.

It could be getting fired by Matpat but then he'd have someone to be angry at.
Nice guess, but he'd have someone to be mad at if it was medical too. He'd blame the Republicans, especially BAD ORANGE MAN, for not having a robot body yet, or at least cloned organs and a perfect weight-loss pill.

It's also a trick for making something look bigger when verticality is limited. If you have a vertical framing you can certainly have the subject standing with wenches grasping at / enemies dying at his feet. But if it's horizonal (like our TVs and film screens) you just can't do it - most of the guys in those shots would be out of frame if they stood up so you'd have to pull back and show more background. Instead, you sit the subject down and get close so he fills the frame. I'm sure if there was a supine pose that conveyed the idea of power they'd use that more to cater to widescreen TVs, but it's hard to look powerful when you're flat on your back.

Not related but it's also used in statuary like Zeus at Olympia (and its obvious descendant, Lincoln in Washington), because doing a big free-standing statue is hard but a seated one can be huge and everyone will look at it and think "If he stood up he'd be a giant!", giving most of the effect of a standing statue with a lot less effort.
In other words, it's a basic composition trick. Composition is something Bob should theoretically know something about from spending four years studying movies. And you know that he'd be smugly showing off this knowledge if he actually had it. As I've observed here before, he really doesn't know much about the actual art of film.

Bob is very lucky. I was once in a journalism program and one of my professor's openly mocked Kurt Eichenwald. When you have a leg up on Kurt you should be doing victory laps.
I assume it was for his ridiculous excuses for massively breaching basic journalistic ethics by paying a source to produce child pornography?

Like science vs. "I fucking love science!"

Real smart vs. fake smart is easy to spot.

Real smart people get their ideas across in short, concise, points, sometimes with folksy humor and "nerdy" references too. Because they want their idea to get out there and will "sell" it to lay people in terms they can understand so everyone benefits.

Fake smart people obfuscate their ideas with impressive sounding words and page after page of rambling into tangents from that original point in an effort to "sound" smart and look informed. Because their core argument is weak and probably 100% supposition, or just an opinion that doesn't even NEED defending. It's valid by being yours. You don't even have to argue it unless you're the egoist kind that feels you opinions should have supremacy. And they won't "sell it" with breezy or silly flourishes because this is serious... this is a quasi-GOD talking here!
And then Bob screws up being fake smart by using Buffyspeak, a style of writing whose purpose is to make the character sound like a bimbo. An elementary aspect of characterization that, yet again, escapes this college-educated supposed professional who spent four years mostly studying fiction.

We also know, through decades of character building about what Superman stands for that he'd NEVER willingly sit on a throne. He doesn't see himself as the God Emperor of humanity, but rather, a Super-citizen of same who recognizes his functional invulnerability/immortality means he's the ultimate innocent bystander who can step in and say "Hey, stop that or someone's gonna get hurt!" and survive whatever happens. Putting him on one, would be subconsciously "rejected" by an astute reader as "something's wrong" as being in the seat of power implies you intend to force your will, and are plotting something, good or bad, for those you rule over.

Supes, the ultimate Boy Scout, doesn't plot, he lets the common person live their life and woe to anyone who would do that little man wrong.
"Superman sitting on a throne" is visual shorthand for "dark alternate universe/timeline where heroes turned evil".

Well you see, Bob just wants to bring some of his long distant relatives to the US, is it so bad for a man to wish to be surrounded by his loved ones?

But seriously, I'm sure Bob would feel right at home if he was surrounded by a bunch of elephants and hippos, they'd probably mistake him as one of their young and adopt him into the pack.

He has absolutely no filter and no way of being able to explain himself succinctly. Now, I'm sure we've watched a film and come up with some take we thought was amazing. The difference is, we may realize that it's stupid once we think it over. Bobert is so enamored with his own perceived brilliance that he won't rethink anything he says. He'll either make the conversation so convoluted to try and make his point look smart or delete what he said in a vain attempt to avoid embarrassment.
Of course I had shit takes. Thousands of them. The only difference is that I had enough friends with similar hobbies that, once I said them out loud I would get laughed at. Having shit takes is nothing to be embarrassed about - consistently refusing to admit they were shit is shameful. But since Bob never had friends growing up because he thought he was better than everybody else, this is what you get.

On a side note: Apparently J.R.R. Tolkien helped C.S. Lewis convert to Christianity which is a fun historical fact I never knew about. And who said you can never learn anything from reading kiwifarms?
There was some religious tension between the two (Tolkien was a Roman Catholic, while Lewis was an Anglican), but they they overcame that through the intellectual satisfaction they got in matching wits with each other. They even founded two exclusive clubs- the Coalbiters and the Inklings- who consisted of some of the brightest minds in England getting together, presenting stories and papers they had written, and critiquing them. Both would use the members of these clubs as impromptu editors to help refine their greatest literary works.

They were both titans of literature and philosophy, and the world is poorer with their passing. And Bob thinks his atheism makes him superior to them in every way.

They were great for the day, when search engines were less hit-and-miss and more miss-and-miss, but I don't think any of us miss the days when we'd hit that ring button from our favorite site for a TV show and end up at someone's "What if the hero wore a rabbit suit all the time?" fanfic page with black text on a yellow background and UNDER CONSTRUCTION animations all over the place. Oh, and an autoplaying MIDI "remix" that's just the same old MIDI everyone else has except the instruments have been swapped so the piano track is being played on drums and the beat is General MIDI bird tweets (Youtube link to the closest thing I could find in a minute of poking, for the young'uns).

They were OK for linking together sites containing a specific theme but they were never an indicator of consistent quality. So the theme here is "progressivism"? Yeah, that's a new one. Definitely the kind of niche no one's in, that'll provide a great service.

Hmmm. Would The Abortion count as a podcaster? Maybe they could get her to sign up.
"Deliberately sought out and selected..." (Looks back at list.) It looks like a list of non-Bob people that Chris talks to online. I bet his deliberate selection process was opening Twitter and asking "Oh, so-and-so sent me a reply. Does he/she/they/xe/hon/bun have a podcast?" on repeat for a week.

Bobby has so marinated his sorry excuse of a brain with capeshit that he can't think of anything without fantasizing capeshit scenarios:

I don't know about you, but "not talking about race ever" in schools is pretty valid, especially now that teachers cannot approach this subject in a level-headed manner.

i doubt Bob is familiar with the concept of "Invasive Species" (unless it's Straight White Cis Males). I hope he never runs right into a Giant Hogweed on a sunny day, just sayin'.

I disagree, and would find Bloberto rolling around shrieking in from a run-in with Hogweed while he shouts word vomit into the sky at his predicament hilarious
The only problem with this is that Robert would never go outside in the first place.

Most of his emoticons are fake or hypocritical but this one is just nonsensical.

You mean the same feeling most people get when someone suggests they sit through another MCU brawl with a column of light in the background?

Criticizes someone for "not believing in" science by positing a scientifically impossible scenario. Good job, Bob. Did you know that if you shoot up with a mix of cyanide, heroin, and Pixy Stix it makes leprechauns shoot out your ass? The Science I got from the last leprechaun out says so!

Bob: Science says when you mix a bunch of drugs and poisons you don't get superpowers. You get dead.

God, tell me about it - the hell of it is that if they'd proposed the same rule to ensure that male teachers aren't raping little girls he'd be fine with it, and there's be no talk about how it was fascist.

That said I like how he wants a reckoning for certain whites. Not him, obviously. He's one of the good ones.

Blobby bitches about denying science yet suggest it takes a XX Chromosome to be a woman and you're a monster in his eyes.
