We’re in a golden age of nerdy media. Every time I think we’ve hit the pinnacle of high-budget media adapting or embracing something once only for the nerdiest of the nerds, another trailer comes out.
The House with a Clock in Its Walls delighted at first but steadily worsened. The endless brownie points earned spent themselves too fast and left a husk of a film.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a movie that could only exist this deep in the Marvel phenomenon. It doesn’t flow or function like an actual movie—it heavily assumes you’ve seen so much media. It doesn’t give you time or an adequate explanation for half the stuff that happens.
Trailers are their own unique pieces of art. Sometimes better than the movies/shows they go with. The time restraint forces creativity and efficiency. These five are some of the best I’ve seen lately.
Going into Moon Knight, I had few expectations. I wasn’t familiar with the character. All I knew about them was that Moon Knight had more than one personality, and at least one of them had superpowers.
The Hollow is a decent enough show mired by gimmick issues. The biggest one is its reliance on the “Mystery Box” model.
So, those are the card choices, but before you go off and play, let’s talk about what decks to look out for, and what upgrades might happen down the line with the upcoming set.
Longtime readers will know that I’m a big fan of the Arclight Phoenix deck. It’s popular and powerful in Historic on Arena and I use it to grind ranks. Getting lots of practice in has led me to make tons of tweaks and even a few deviations from any list you’ve probably seen.
Before listening to The Storage Papers, I never thought a podcast could scare me as much as The Magnus Archives. That the mind-melting, the dark-is-dangerous thrill it gave me was the peak of horror storytelling.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is the type of movie that could only exist in this new media environment. The draw is the spectacle of connecting reboots and pulling in actors to reprise long-gone roles.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife has several excellent moments, a great protagonist, and a heartfelt core, yet is underwhelming in a lot of ways. Those who watch it will remember it mainly for its fan service, and though that’s kind of the point—it’s not great we have a lot of movies made with that in mind.
