    Us *SPOILERS*

    And here's the official discussion thread for all things "Us." Including those ginormous spoilers that left many of us with more questions than answers. Please try not to spoil other movies within a month of being out in theaters as someone might have seen "Us," but not "Captain Marvel." Also please respect everyone's opinions on the movie! Have at it and let's hope you don't piss off your tether in the process!

    My mom told me she caught it on TCM recently and said she fell asleep at some point cause she was too bored.

    Us *SPOILERS*

    My theater laughed a lot! I laughed at that line too! There were a couple of points where people even laughed (like when Elizabeth Moss's tether was reacting to seeing her husband die) that I actually was like lord this isn't funny to me cause it's like making me really uncomfortable. But I think the biggest laughs were for Tim because his slapstick was really on point and that NWA drop when Elizabeth tried to ask Alexa to call the police. I was totally expecting The Police to then play but NWA's "Fuck The Police" was even better and our theater lost it.

    Captain Marvel *SPOILERS*

    Here's our official discussion thread for Captain Marvel! This is open to all things related to this movie, including spoilers! We can also go into our theories of how she'll be involved with Endgame, and discuss the most recent trailer that came out now that they can have the one and only Carol Danvers featured. The only rule is to please not spoiler any other movies that are within a month old of being in theaters. Actually the other rule is to be respectful of everyone's opinions on the movie, but that should go unsaid lol.

    Us *SPOILERS*

    Man, I could've sworn she just said they were created by "someone" so it was like an understood thing in this world whoever that "someone" was was supposed to be The Creator or whatever. Almost like all of Earth was supposed to be this experiment from the point of creation, and it automatically didn't work but wasn't fully abandoned. Guess I just need to see it again

    Captain Marvel *SPOILERS*

    I was the opposite! I came to Sex Criminals via my love for his Hawkeye run! Also I have to thank him for then introducing me to his wife Kelly Sue DeConnick who wrote Captain Marvel's run at the same time which is what made me fall in love with her and was the big basis for this movie! You can even see Kelly Sue in the subway scene when Carol gets off the train and walks by a lot of people that are like, "Uhhh," and there's this woman with a flash of bright cherry red hair and I remember thinking, "Goodness that looks like Kelly Su- HOLY SHIT THAT'S KELLY SUE!"

    I'm not gonna lie.... all of my memory except for that final scene at sunrise is in b&w but that can't be possible if I remember her green dress and those red and oranges at the end...

    Oh I thought it was always in color. My Amazon trivia said that it was the very first color movie to be nominated for Best Picture.

    Captain Marvel *SPOILERS*

    I can't comment on the details tbh, but I do remember them being like lol no Terrence Howard. A post-Avengers prequel movie set in Budapest with Black Widow and Hawkeye would have literally been the PERFECT opportunity to set those two characters up for something solo down the line, and with the amount of fanfic I read about said setting I am deep into the Clintasha ship hole lmao. Also, doing that could have possibly set up an amazing Matt Fraction written Netflix mini-series about Clint recovering from the brainwashing in his apartment in Brooklyn and then having to fight the Russian mafia because he's a good person at heart that refuses to see them fuck over everyone that lives in his building. (Can you tell I'm ignoring that dumb family Whedon pointlessly threw in lol.)

    Oh also true story: I got THIS FUCKING CLOSE to having Bradley Cooper sign my Guardians of the Galaxy poster because I snuck into the American Sniper premiere (it was held here because the real family is from here) and he fuckin stopped right at the girl beside me and then left and I was like "Bradley!" and he turned around and said sorry that he really had to go and I swear y'all those eyes struck me right in the soul that's how blue they actually are.

    I think it depends on the people doing the spotting to be honest. Also I'm a terrible person to have this conversation with because my college roommate and her now husband would call me the IMDB robot when we would watch movies together because I can recognize everyone and tell you what it is I recognize them from. Then last night I went to my mom's to watch the NCAA final (so mad) and I heard a story I had never heard before where I found out that my dad recognized Victor Wong in a restaurant here in Dallas out of nowhere and he was so delighted by it that they got to sit down with him and have a really lovely conversation. Apparently it's a genetic thing that has now caused me to be able to spot anyone. I've also once spotted our very own Paul Scheer on the streets of Austin just as I happened to walk by him once in 2010, and that was before this podcast! Point being, I could probably spot Eddie Vedder in a bar and I would probably be that person to pick out Jackson Maine as well lmao.

    That's for sure. I wonder if that was a choice to really highlight his alcoholism cause boy howdy can you tell this man has issues.

    But Norman drunkenly slurs it to Ester after driving her home the first time they meet!

    Understandable, and I will say it definitely packs a bigger punch when he bookmarks it at the end.

    The first dude says it after their first night together tho too. This isn't something the remakes invented lol.

    Musical Mondays Week 63 A Star is Born (1937)

    Man I could not feel more opposite y'all!! I am legit Team Bradley & Gaga Must Have Fucked IRL because I felt that chemistry from one end to the other. But when I watched the two in the 37 version I literally felt nothing until the very end of the movie. That first "date" scene with him driving her home just read way more like a drunk dude trying to get laid with his classic line and yeah I could see on Ester's face that she ate that shit up, but then when they decide to get married I didn't believe it at all! I had no sense that they were truly in love with each other until Ester and Oliver are talking about how she's going to quit acting to stay with him. That was the one moment on both those lead's faces that I genuinely believed they were in love.

    Musical Mondays Week 63 A Star is Born (1937)

    I'm trying to think of a real counterpart for him because I've definitely seen acts like him at festivals (which is what I'm assuming that first concert we see him play at is, just based on the flags and shit that you see in the crowd) and the only thing I could really come up with is Father John Misty which has a huge ass following in the folk/rock/country genre, but obvs I think we're supposed to assume that like Norman he's more of a nostalgia piece by this point than at his peak. He doesn't seem pure country so it doesn't make as much sense that his crowds would be as large as they are at that point (it truly seems like country fans will be ride or die with people they love), but that could be part of it for sure. I really loved that first song he sang solo, but I think after that we never hear anything from him that he doesn't then sing with Aly, maybe possibly echoing how Norman never acts again without Ester by his side? And truly, without Gaga I don't think the 2018 version would hold nearly the same weight as it does currently.

    I believe that at the point where we meet Aly she had just been beaten by insecurities, because she makes a comment that she keeps getting told that she'll make it big if it weren't for how ugly she was. So I don't think she ever really gives it up because she's still performing, but I don't think she's been told "No," the same way that Ester has. In the 37 version we just see that Ester gets told no because there are 100,000 other girls going out for the same jobs, but Aly gets told no because of her nose.

    Captain Marvel *SPOILERS*

    It literally reeks of a giant cop-out. They had NO idea any of those men were headlining (literally no one had even heard of Chris Hemsworth or Tom Hiddleston in America before Thor premiered), and while RDJ was a known name he still had so much tied to him from his past that this was a huge gamble to start an entire franchise on his back. One wrong move and they would've lost everything. At least with Scarlett she already had a reputable name and many many great movies under her belt by that time and was maybe the only one out of any of those in the original six you could've banked at the time to lead her own movie of that scale. Plus after we've seen that DC can literally just throw Wonder Woman into a handful of scenes in a terrible movie like BvS and then knock it out of the park with her own solo movie then there's literally noooo argument that Marvel can throw out that holds any weight.

    We'll have to blame Amazon's subtitles for that one then because it said "IN ENGLISH ACCENT" and I was like this is the worst thing I've heard what the hell LOL
