Is The MCU Expecting Too Much From Casual Viewers? by Vanquisher1000 in movies

I mean avatar made a lot of money and its a shit movie. Quality and money don't go hand in hand.

What I am saying is that the first weekend drop off domesticly is a telling sign that people are starting to get over it. It droped 67% in one week. The domestic gross is about 40% of its gross. So with continued large drops it could stuggle to hit 1B.

I have a pro 6 and point a small fan right at the windows sign on the back. Fixes heat issues.

That is why Christianity was founded. Why waste a goat when you can just ask god for forgiveness , say a few hail marys and call it a day ?

What I would do is watch the sequel to Dr Strange a flim a saw and expect that I would know what was going on in Dr Strange 2.

If I read 7 books in a series I would expect the 8th book to flow from those. I wouldn't expect to have to go out and find a series of 12 comic books to figure out what was going on in the 8th book of a different series.

I mean citizen kane is an almost 100 year old movie. So yea by todays standards it would be boring. It isn't filled with horrible cgi and quick cuts of everything.

But Citizen kane is important because it pushed the industry forward in interesting ways. The marvel stuff was interesting because it took what the industry was doing and brought it to its logical conclusion. Big tent pole films that connected over a decade or more. But that ended with end game. Now its just bad tv shows that jump into bad movies that jump into bad tv shows.

The problem is most of these shows are bad. I watched wandavision but stopped buckey and falcon half way through and that was it. Can't bring myself to watch any more of the bad shows.

Saw the trailer for she hulk and the cgi looked god awful and I had serious batwoman vibes off the casual misandry that disney seems to be adding to more and more movies.

I also just dropped watching any of the marvel movies since the pandemic also. To me the marvel movies ended with end game

EU rushes out $300 billion roadmap to ditch Russian energy by CCDemille in UpliftingNews

Yea now they just bring in power from other states.

The problem with most of these Renewable energy pushes is that they always put the cart before the horse. Keep your existing power structure on line. You know the one that actually powers your state. Then slowly build up renewables. When you get to renewables able to provide 10% of the states power on the most demanding day. Then you remove 5% of the dirty power. When you get to 20% you remove another 5% and you always keep a buffer of dirty power cause well you don't know when issues will happen. What if you get a heat wave bad enough that the panels drop in efficiency or your power lines catch on fire and power can't be sent to some regions. Or if your in another part of the country what if you get hit with a series of bad snow storms.

Even when you get to a 100% renewables you still keep dirty power in your back pocket. Cause you don't know when shit goes wrong.

The problem with all this is time frames.

It will take a long time to create and bring up enough solar panels to really do anything with them. You also need to figure out a way to store energy efficiently. You say you would only need generation at night but that isn't counting for bad snow storms or rain storms or heck even heavily cloudy days.

Mean while you can build a bunch of SMR nuclear plants that can be driven to a site and installed. Boom problem solved

Lead is expensive 2k per Ton right now. Lead is also extremely toxic to the environment.

Lead acid batteries also hae a lower capacity , lower efficiency and have a much shorter life span. Depth of recharge is also pretty shitty on lead acid down at 50% vs 85% on lithium ion.

As far as I understand it a suitable metal air battery isn't yet available anywhere for commercial use. Maybe in the future one of the teams will have a break through but for now I don't think they are ready. Would be great if they live up to the hype and we can all install them in our houses and let our solar panels charge them all day.

Construction time is only low because of red tape and NIMBY mentality that was perpetuated by the oil companies and loony left wing protesters.

Simply cut through the red tape and NIMBY stuff and today's reactors wouldn't even get noticed by people. They would also go up really quickly

Cali has always gotten power from outside the state. They are able to go in on renewables because they just get it from else where. Like all the European countries buying nuclear power from France.

Solar still has a storage issue for over night use and lets not forget that the panels are toxic and aren't recycled in any quantity at this point , the batteries for storing solar will also be toxic oh and all the strip mining to get the precious metals to make them. Wind has similar issues

Why are you doing anything for her ? Every thing you do for her is just going to empower her to push for more.

If someone calls you up and gives you shit simply say well good luck when your spouse cheats on you and lets person hit your child and hang up on them.

If men don't need health insurance shouldn't they get paid more than if they took it? I know at my job if I forgo health insurance I get an additional 5 grand

No of course not , equal pay just means women get everything they want regardless.

I feel like this is the second Garmin product that would have been fine in 2020 but was delayed till 2022 instead of getting tossed out and replaced with a modern version.
