A message for patrons

He everyone, first of all we have two new patrons to welcome:

Victor Nilsson: achieved fame in the late sixties/early seventies as a laid-back folk singer whose gentle, pastoral ballads masked his trenchant critique of the hippy lifestyle with such songs as “Free Love is Great, Until You Get Clap”, “Brother, how will you get a mortgage?” and “Your reflexive critique of the war in Vietnam is poorly thought out and reductive, man.”

Lance is the original leader of the Elite Four and a master of Dragon Type Pokémon.

Many thanks to both of these gentlemen.

Now, that that’s out of the way there is just something I needed to be sure that everyone is cool with. If you’ve signed up as a patron for $5 you can request one review every six months, whereas $10 patrons get to request a review every month. I repeat, you can request a review every month. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to get a review the same month you request one, it means you can add a review to the queue every month. Two reviews a month is still my limit in terms of output unless someone wants to sign up as a patron and match my current salary (please don’t do that, my reviews are not that good) and I’ll still be doing the regular series reviews as well as finishing off the last of the reviews from people who donated to help Mauricio. What I’m trying to say is, it will probably be a long time before I get to your specific review. Sorry, I’m just one rodent. Starting from the review after next I’m going to try to keep to the following schedule.

1)      Regular series review (X-Men/Marvel/Disney Canon if they ever get around to releasing another  one)

2)      Patron review

3)      Mauricio review

And repeat until the end of time. Once the Mauricio reviews are done that will free up an extra slot and I’ll be able to focus more on Patron reviews. Sorry if there was any confusion. If you feel that’s not what you signed up for, please feel free to amend your pledge or cancel it altogether, I won’t be offended.  Anyway, thanks again for your support and your patience.

  1. My dear fellow, I quite understood that our requests would merely add some reviews to your list, rather than give them first priority – have no fear of any outrage or indignation on my part (though be warned that the more time elapses between Reviews the more time I have to improve upon my Cunning Plans … or just find entertainingly appalling films to besiege you with). (-;

  2. Sounds like a good plan to deal with all the requests and continue doing your usual thing. I’d love to hear a ballpark estimate of how many movies are in your queue.

    Also, “Disney Canon if they ever get around to releasing another  one”

    Wreck-It Ralph 2 this November, then Frozen 2 next November. I think maybe your brain glitched trying to fathom the concept of a Disney sequel that actually counts.

    “No Shang: Instead of our bisexual prince, Mulan’s love interest will be a guy named Chen Honghu, who will be played by actor Yoson, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This is probably the change that hurts the most, since Honghu will know that Mulan’s true identity is a woman and fall for her through that revelation, which is much less interesting than the Shang/Ping/Mulan dynamic. Why this change? You know Disney can’t handle actual LGBT content.”

    “No Shang also means there’s going to be a new commander character named Commander Tung, who will be Mulan’s mentor. He will be played by Donnie Yen from Rogue One.”

    “Instead of Shan Yu, one of Disney’s most violent and underrated villains, there will be two baddies in the live-action Mulan. One will be … a witch, played by Gong Li, and the second will be Bori Khan, “a warrior leader who is intent on avenging his father’s death,” via THR.”

    Oh my God, all these danger signs.

    Also, they are making a Lady and the Tramp live action movie. I didn’t even know that. Okay, it has Sam Elliot as Trusty and that’s kind of awesome Because Sam Elliot, but still, Disney, stop it already, please! You’ve gone way too far now!
