    you know i was thinking.... how come pokemon has the market share it has being an independent entity from the base production firm nintendo and has the most episodes of any show ever and the most consistent sales of their products in comparison to disney properties?
    the pokemon company keeps all their productions about at the same budgets and make about the same amount of increase yearly with the same growth rate as a developed nation's tax collection agency.
    the movies and show are not particularly well reviewed, and when they are its niche and particular for whatever subjects they throw on the screen, and they base it all on selling games and toys. somehow the honesty with their production studio comes through though and they gross 80 billion dollars total over 20 years with a varying 1.9% increase of holding every year.
    disney puts billions and billions on their live action movies and animated properties to an astounding 0.7% annual loss of their tyrant-like business.
    it goes to show that when something is modest and has lots of ways for the consumer to interact beyond the visual imagery you can make gold from what would otherwise be another garbage fire. the pokemon co understands the frugality in film budgets and show budgets to their advantage by making astoundingly good accompanying interactive media outlets. this gives a bit more weight for fans and outsiders to enjoy and mess with at their whim without dropping the sales figures.
    i think they simply went the more challenging and varied route than throwing all their cash into big budget 2 hour snorefests with shit tons of CGI recycles and high paid actors, and threw small amounts into shorter more contained media with a bigger world that connects everything.

    The Shazam movie is basically BiG (Tom Hanks) with a Shazam logo over it. Same concept. Fish out of water. A boy passing as an adult.

    for those of us who want to skip the skits (which are awesome) but at least we have the option to get to the review(s) or even like one of the commenters who time stamped all of the rich evans parts.

    Gotham is an amazing show all together and it is very dark at times. But this seems to be the only one they managed to do a good job with and it has nothing to do with anything else tv or movie related.
    But they at least cast the characters really well so they fit the characters to a T. Not to mention the original characters tend to be comic characters and you don't see the twist coming until it happens, like with Grundy.
    So at least DC has one thing going for them.

    Counting Disney out will be a mistake IMO, TFA made way more than it should of, and TLJ still made 1.33B (made less than TFA, which is usually what happens with sequels), the animated shows have mostly been loved by fans. Solo just didn't look good the people that liked TLJ didn't even want solo film without ford, I am curious how ep 9 will do.

    RE: Aquaman's plot - they're essentially just adapting the "Throne of Atlantis" story from the comics. It's a pretty accessible Aquaman story with a lot of worldbuilding, so makes sense for a movie.

    I only know Clone Wars from a DS game I got years ago. Worst game in existence (who would have thought! XD). It's like a phone game (tapping the screen constantly) but then with a hard plastic pencil/stick and it slowly destroys your touch screen while playing. LOVELY!

    It's a shame you guys haven't actually watched through Star Wars TCW. Dave Filoni actually knows what makes Star Wars great and has managed to keep making good SW all the way through Rebels. He's an excellent writer and creator. I think Mr. Plinkett might even agree! Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to TCW season 7, especially after the way the sequel trilogy has gone.

      +Kanji Klub-I'm actually okay with them holding off on a Plinkett Last Jedi review at the moment. They rushed too fast to make a Force Awakens review because enough of the fans demanded it. ..but. . .at best, they didn't really have a whole lot to say, especially anything that wasn't touched on before in the Half in the Bag review. That review was way too long and overbloated. So, if they do an (eventual) Last Jedi review, I want them only to do it if they actually have something to say about it. That they want to do it, "need" to do it, not for anybody else but because THEY want to.

    I love you guys, been watching you for years now. But holy shit sometimes your cynicism really bums me out. Deadpool 2 was one of the absolutely funniest movies I've ever seen. Amd while Aquaman is lame, the story of war with his brother is the most important story to tell to introduce him in cinematic form. It is why Aquaman is who he is. So not a blatant ripoff of Thor. If anything Thor ripped off Aquaman 1st.

    I'm starting to think Disney actually hates Star Wars and its fans.

      A lot of this "nerd culture " has been infiltrated by people who hate the fans and want to change the industry. It is happening in movies, games and comics. They are hiring creators who despise the people who buy their products.

    • Nathaniel Drake
      Nathaniel Drake Month ago

      100% accurate and I couldn't agree more. I wanted a story that would respect and further the mythology that came before it, but instead I got 2 pandering, vacuous cash-grabs and a 3rd likely on the way (admittedly, the spin-off films have been slightly more enjoyable...)
      There's nothing in terms of direction over there at Lucasfilm, and it's a joke that Kathleen Kennedy hasn't been replaced yet. Whether people like Marvel Studios or not, their movies stand on a solid foundation that began with a vision, and to this day that vision serves as a through line for all of their films. Kevin Feige at least cares about those characters and the stories being told...The fact that they didn't have Episodes 7-9 vaguely mapped out before filming meant they fucked up right out the gate.
      I look forward to watching how ineptly Disney handles 20th Century Fox properties once that gets going...

    • Fera Flauna
      Fera Flauna Month ago

      +Nathaniel Drake-I think hate is too strong a word. More bluntly, they just don't care. At all. If anybody thought somehow, things were going to be different after George Lucas-a senile narcissist, traded away the franchise to the "highest bidder" (figuratively but it was worth a pretty big fortune. . .)-a cold, callous corporation, I think Disney has been smug enough by THIS POINT to prove just how much they really care.
      They never did. Star Wars is just YET another property in their arsenal they can milk and scrape "beyond the (bare) bones." It's JUST a property and ONLY a property to them, and nothing more-and there is very little love and care left in this franchise. Fans are to be used and manipulated for hype-and after that, fans are expendable. Guillable, naive, stupid-according to Disney. They expect, KNOW they don't have to give a shit, let alone try at all with this franchise, or so they assume. And they'll continue doing whatever the fuck they want until this "train" crashes to the ground. . .and if that ever happens. . .they'll just pick it up at some point and do it all over again. . .
      Is that incredibly depressing? Oh yes. I get no joy out of the fact these "movies" exist. I definitely don't get any joy with having these abominations that call themselves Star Wars movies-the whole experience is joyless and utterly robbed of heart and soul. But we're just at that point where Disney knows they've got all of us throttled at the wallet so after The Last Jedi, they've finally (and for me, maybe "mercifully") dropped any and all pretense that they were going to do things differently and that someone does care this time. . .

    Dear Half in the Bag, consider that each successive video discussion you produce is akin to a sequel of your best stuff. After a while, at some point, perhaps soon, your followers begin to look at these the same way you guys look at sequels.....”eh, I don’t need more.” Just some food for thought. Gotta keep making each successive spicier and more exciting, otherwise, meh.

  • Patrick Doherty
    Patrick Doherty 2 months ago +1

    I totally agree with Mike's trailer trash analogy, but Disney don't.. or shouldn't make such bad decisions. They obviously have experienced marketing people and make decisions based on research and data. They didn't rush out a frozen sequel. They're still milking that, but they knew not to push out part 2 very quickly. When they have special property like Frozen, The Incredibles, Toy Story or Finding Nemo they generally tend to take their time. With Star Wars they just went fucking nuts! It's totally out of character.
