Old thread revival
Kinda off topic. Marvel ish.
So Loki finished kinda and uh, yea... I feel like people who loved Endgame would eat this show up. I didn't like Endgame and I think I liked Loki even less.
Everything they say about the multiversal war and shit, the sacred timeline, etc makes sense to me in general. But everything they SHOW happening (and how they twist it) is just absolute derp. It's overconvoluted for the sake of the show itself and has no place in the grand scheme of things. Maybe I'm2dum4this - it feels like there are literally no rules to anything here. I'm 99% sure their upcoming movies will take the easy way out with the multiverse and not even try to make sense of this Loki BS or address it (because they really don't have to, multiverse as a concept is "ez").
Thanks for the OST though. Hopefully the 2nd volume has less tracks missing. Coming July 23. I'm gonna stick to my opinion that it's the best Disney OST since Mandalorian S1.
PS. Sylvie x Loki is probably the least believable on-screen relationship I've seen in recent times. Even less than Romanoff and Banner (to stick to the MCU).
So Marvel Studios shows so far, IMHO:
WandaVision (my only gripe was the motivations (or lack of them) for the "villain(s)" and also how they left certain plots/characters hanging with us not knowing when/if they get picked up again and in a way that makes sense) > FatWS (I thought it ended too neatly. I was honestly shocked that Sam's "brilliant" museum idea in the finale went so smoothly. All that drama and all he really wanted was a lil' recognition for his time in the military? I'm simplifying but that's how that finale sequence read to me and I did not relate to that development.) >>>>>>>> Loki (Like I said above - maybe I'm 2dum4this.)
At least the fun was better than in most other Marvel shows IMO. No stupid whedon jokes or that sort of thing. A bit of thinking that is quite uncommon in the MCU.
But yeah, it feels like they just wanted to introduce the multiverse prior to Doctor Strange 2 and Spider-man 3 especially, although it wasn't necessary... except for Kang maybe, but who knows, until he pops up again, things may have changed a lot (just compare to Thanos and his first design and desires rofl)
I think that Episode 5 had the best music (too bad the battle track sounds like the
Indiana Jones theme*
???) and my favorite track from the show is the choir ending track from Episode 6.
* Well I guess I need to revise my classic lessons, dunno why I've mistaken the Indiana Jones theme with "Ride of the Valkyries" ^^'
But I need to clarify that I didn't try to listen to the episode ost again before writing this review so my memory played some tricks on me
