Moon Knight is one of those characters Marvel never really knew what to do with. When he first came on, he had powers due to being possessed by an Egyptian god. I think he was retooled later to be more like Batman with no super powers.

I could take Isaac's tedious British accent for five minutes before bailing out. I'll try again later but I don't have my hopes up.

After reading some of the newer Moon Knight comics at Marvel Unlimited I'm not that wild about the character and the stories themselves since I find it all too confusing. That said it's all about understanding mental illness and it sort of makes you understand the lives of people who have trouble grasping reality. For a brief period in my life I shared a flat with a paranoid schizophrenic. It was quite horrifying to find out he's hearing voices and lives a different kind of reality in his head. When he started involving me in his fantasies I moved out fast, especially since there was some threat of violence. I felt bad for him and Moon Knight certainly brought the memories back after a long time.

The comics are well-made, though, which is why I'll keep on reading them. And I'll probably try to watch the show as well even if it makes me a bit uncomfortable.

by Anonymousreply 40March 31, 2022 12:36 PM

Well, it didn't take too long for me to return to the show, and after a nap I watched the rest of the episode. Thankfully the accent wasn't featured that much anymore and I ended up liking the show. According to some reviewers it's all downhill from here on but we'll see. I'm curious enough to watch the rest of it unless the drop in quality is just too much.

It's really good but this is one series that would be better served with a full season drop instead of weekly. Plus, I just want them to hurry up and show Gaspard Ulliel.

by Anonymousreply 47April 6, 2022 6:02 PM

It's beyond disturbing and disrespectful how Marvel and Disney didn't say a word about Gaspard Ulliel's death! Not even a "RIP" post on their social media like they normally do when one of their actors have passed away. His death was on the headlines worldwide and most of them were calling him "Marvel actor" or "Marvel star", and yet no word from the two companies that he actually worked for in the last project that he finished... Even the cast was completely silent about their co-star until the French press asked about him. They would keep ignoring his death if it wasn't for the French press junket. They probably thought that only French people knew/cared about him.

R47 Gaspard will appear on episode 3 on April 13. The spoilers from the critics who have seen the first four episodes aren't that good about his character's screen time and fate, unless they changed something in the last two episodes. The director said that at the end of the shoot he told Gaspard that Marvel and the fans would love him and would bring him back, so maybe there's a plot twist at the end.

This series is a mess! Oscar Isaac's British accent is atrocious and his Steven persona couldn't be more annoying. I love that he claimed that the accent was intentionally bizarre after he got criticized, LOL. May Calamawy is good but she has zero chemistry with Isaac, so it's hard to care for them as partners/couple.

Marvel has finally acknowledged Gaspard Ulliel's death! It only took them 3 months to do that... how kind of them!

To me Wandavision and Loki were great. C&TWS was meh. I didn't watch Hawkeye because I hate Jeremy Renner.

I only watched the first episode of Moon Knight and don't feel much of an urge to catch up. However, I had the same experience with the syfy show Halo, but then gifs of Pablo Schreiber's naked ass in episode three motivated me to watch more episodes, and now I'm pretty much hooked. Am I a shallow bitch? *In Roger's voice from American Dad* Guilty!

I really liked the first episode. Second episode, pretty good. Some really bad writing in episode 3. Still in for Isaac who's doing a great job. Also he's a hottie and I'm shallow. (Sebastian Stan was the main reason I watched F&TWS.)

I wonder if all Egyptians think this is a good depiction of Egyptians and their culture.

Some of Moon Knight that is set in Egypt strikes me as stereotypical; in degree and tone not much more enlightened than those Golden Age of Hollywood Mummy movies of the 1940s and 50s.

Moon Knight in some of the modern era comics is about a hundred times cuter and sexier that Oscar Isaac. Don't get me wrong, I generally do like Isaac but there's just something super annoying about his portrayal of the guys, especially the timid one with the 'Mary Poppins accent'.

When I heard it was six episodes I was hoping for a fairly simple story that left room for another chapter. Instead looks like nothing will be resolved, except possibly some kind of detente among the personalities...except we haven't even met the third personality yet so eh. (Though I think he was there briefly in the office of "Dr. Harrow.") It's just a peeve of mine that so many TV shows draw their stories out too long.

That said, I'm entertained. I'd probably watch Oscar Isaac read the phone book. Or even watch X-men: Apocalypse.

For some reason I had a feeling that Marc was trying to protect Steven from the truth of who is the original. Lucky guess I suppose, though the way they hugged in the last episode did signal there was more than friction to their relationship. It's sort of sweet that Marc treats Steven like a sometimes-exasperating younger brother. Oh, and I think everyone called it from episode one that Steven's mum wasn't real.

Just hope the last episode isn't too rushed.

Oscar did do a phenomenal job this week.

I am kind of tired of seeing the mental institution as a trope, though.

It reminded me of that Buffy episode where she “wakes up” in that mental institution and all her “reality” is a deeply disturbed mind. Kind of makes you wonder what would make her go to that world of monsters and demons since her life seemed so normal.

Being completely unfamiliar with this Marvel character, I don’t know what’s going to happen in the next episode so I’m looking forward to it.

R82 I just Googled it and that particular comics about Marc waking up in a mental hospital was published in 2016. Buffy's "Normal Again" episode aired on March 12, 2002. The last episode of Moon Knight referenced Ned Flanders, so the writers weren't oblivious about inserting non-Marvel references. We can even make a case for M. Night Shyamalan's 2019 film 'Glass'. That's hardly an original concept. Even the scenes showing Marc creating Steven, Harrow, etc, based on the stuff he saw around him looked like the scenes from 1995's 'The Usual Suspects'.

Just watched the last episode and they really crammed everything in, huh? I didn't mind it but I didn't love it. Lots of cool bits but lots of fridge logic and I don't think the show lived up to its potential. To focus on the positive: good acting, I thought Ammit looked good, Tawaret was fun, Steven & Marc tag-team fighting was wicked cool. Then there were some good ideas I thought could have been handled better, like the Ammit/Khonshu fight and Layla becoming an avatar.

On the whole I think the series was entertaining but forgettable, like Falcon Soldier. So I've only been strongly positive on one out of four Marvel shows (WandaVision.) Not a great track record.

But I've got my ticket to MoM this weekend. Looking forward to that.

by Anonymousreply 88May 5, 2022 9:23 PM

The premise of the whole Moon Knight story is maybe a bit too weird to make it work seamlessly. I read some of the modern era comics when the show started and although I liked them the comics series deliberately mixed styles which partly ended up making various storylines rather weak. Judging by the fan mail people suffering from serious mental illnesses found Moon Knight great since it was representing them which actually sounds awesome. Still, at one point I stopped reading the comics midway through an issue and totally forgot about it until the next episode aired. I was supposed to finish the story but in the end I just didn't feel like going back there anymore. To be fair this is how I feel about most modern Marvel comics I've read. I grew up reading Claremont/Byrne era X-Men and I rarely see anything these days that comes even close in any way.

The finale was alright even though it was really only the end scene that brought any kind of true excitement to the show. I mean really, all the fights before just felt like going through the motions. Jake Lockley appearing was truly the only reason justifying another season.

I binged WandaVision last weekend and was surprised how deep the show was. Originally I skipped it since it just seemed like something only Wanda fans would like but I was truly wrong. It's a beautiful show.

Possible **SPOILERS** from the new Doctor Strange movie: According to one reviewer the movie has practically nothing to do with WandaVision and doesn't mention Vision at all which sounds bizarre. The movie itself is a mess and the reviewer disliked Sam Raimi's directing. A shame really, since Doctor Strange has been surprisingly entertaining in the MCU. That said some others haven't been so negative about the film.

Not true on both counts. It doesn't reference Vision much, but he is mentioned. And while one can understand the film without watching WANDAVISION, it's better having that frame of reference.
