@jump
Yeah, it gives it an edge of artificially, which is a bit odd when you're trying to be true to yourself.

Sting seems be to an exception here...

The whole of the Downward Spiral done with upbeat helium vocals would be amazing. Maybes with the music redone in the style of Scooter?

I once tried to do a happy hardcore version of Broken Wings by Mr Mister, but sadly, it wasn't very good.

@blindsquarel, I think the complaint about the abruptness of Wanda's turn is a bit overblown. She was clearly shown to becoming entranced by the Dark Hold during the WandaVision post credits scene. Sure, requiring the audience to watch a miniseries to get the full scope of the film's narrative is certainly an angle that can be criticised, but if you have seen the show it doesn't take long to put 2+2 together and see what's happened.

I saw it on Friday, and I agree that the complaints about Wanda’s story arc don’t make a lot of sense to me. I think it realistically makes sense she was “evil” considering all she wanted was to go back to her sons. I think it was a good continuation of WandaVision.

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

I'll probably watch the new Dr Strange at some point but I'd be more interested if it wasn't tied to Wandavision, which I haven't seen because I have no intention of getting Disney+. From what I've heard, the film kind of explains what happens in Wandavision but it makes more sense if you've seen it. But you shouldn't need to watch a TV show to understand the storyline of a blockbuster movie!

The MCU's interconnected plotlines were cool at first, but after that all culminated in Endgame it would have been the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and make it a series of largely standalone films going forward, before people get tired of having to go and see every release in fear of missing out on some important plot point. But instead they've made it worse by churning out dozens of TV series that you can only watch on one particular platform and tying those into the movies' stories as well.

@Rambler I once tried to do something similar of doing hardcore punk/metal covers of happy bouncy Madness and The Specials songs but rather than being ragga metal fusion like Skindred it sounded more like the rubbish ska songs The Ordinary Boys used to play.

1. I don't have Disney+ either, I just know how to internet so I watched it lol. You could just internet better and find it.
2. Dr. Strange: Multiverse of Madness being awesome has little to nothing to do with being invested in Wandavision or arguably any characters anyway. It's like the last Antman movie, it exists to be a fun movie because fun movies are fun (but in a dark, Sami Raimi sort of way), character investment was honestly very secondary.

There are people out there that know how to "internet" but choose not as they view it as stealing and/or want to actually support the movies, music, comics or whatever they like.

I'm one of those weird people that buys music still despite being able to listen to Spotify for free as I want to support the music I like as Spotify pays ridiculously little and most bands aren't rich.

@kkslider5552000 Well yeah, I suppose that's an option. I don't generally internet because I'd rather support the shows I want to watch, and also watch them on the TV instead of my laptop. Though on the other hand, giving money to Disney isn't exactly a top priority for me, and my TV doesn't have a Disney+ app anyway. But anyway, good to hear you liked Multiverse of Madness and that it stands up on its own.

I think that's cool (and in many ways I agree) but paying for Disney + isn't gonna necessarily help the people who actually make Disney + shows anyway. And if watching a tv show is how you'd feel justified in paying to see a movie, then you'd still be supporting the movie instead of neither. (also Wandavision is probably like one of the top 5 watched shows of the past couple of years let's be honest here, they don't need any of our help)

I feel the same way about people who emulated older Metroid games so they could justify themselves buying Dread. It's not supporting more things, its just making choices to support different things if that stuff really matters to someone.

@Kermit1 get a VPN and keep switching countries until you fine one it's on. I use my VPN to watch South Park, American Netflix and to not get caught creating a legion of puppets accounts on here.

@kkslider5552000 I noticed you ignored the it's stealing part. ;p

I wouldn't be so sure about Disney, the last few years have been a massive strain on them with having high cost cruise lines and theme parks across the world that couldn't be open, their core business of movies being affect with the added lols of the biggest Marvel of recent years which even rivals Endgame was released by a non-Disney company so Disney+ was their major revenue line. And the thing about when companies struggle they make cuts to all divisions, my old CFO at my last job called it a "budget hunt" to make it sound like fun and not being a cheap arse who was about to fire people.
