Episode #975: A Much Different Place
First Broadcast: 12/11/23
This week: The Marvels! I thought it was alright--maybe not the best Marvel movie, but far from the worst--and most other people seem to agree with me. So, what explains its relatively poor box office compared to other Marvel movies? Is it all because of thin-skinned people who give one-star reviews to any movie that doesn't put white men front and center? Superhero movie fatigue? The writers' and actors' strikes effectively preventing any promotion when the movie might have needed it the most? Could be all three. Though, even if none of the above were a factor, if you have more than 30 of anything in a series, one of them is inevitably going to be the worst, so maybe it was only a matter of time! Maybe go see it yourself and make up your own mind? Or don't; I'm not your parent.
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
