Youtube reactor: “So this is my first time reaction to listening to The Beatles - Yesterday”
Me yelling at the screen: How can you have never heard that song in your entire life? Were you asleep this whole time?
But i digress..im speaking from a bias…but still! As a kid and teen i always hungry to discover and learn about movies, artists, shows, music, books, comics from across the board…like did these kids just do homework and stand around their whole life? I dunno..i dont get it.
No, but the only reason I heard The Beatles is because my parents were listening to them. Today's parents are probably listening to '80s and '90s music.
I worked with a guy who was like 20 and he straight-up told me he intentionally tended to avoid any art or culture that was from before he was born because he didn't connect to it. An extreme example for sure, I don't think most teens are out there avoiding it, but there's so much to engage with and do in the world, it's not that shocking to me that people, especially people born in the last 20 years, are busy engaging with modern stuff. If you're talking someone who's 20, at least 5, maybe as many as 10 of those years are also going to be dominated by kid material (as well as probably a lot more being outside), so, another factor in not having gotten to The Beatles.

You can tell by Mckenna's age and hair that this is a recent video.
You hear in commentaries all the time that actors tend to avoid watching their own work. Most of them see it at the premiere and then don't watch it again, unless they happen to be invited to do a commentary. My guess is that what the cast is mostly reacting to is the finished shots, with the visual effects and everything completed.

Yeah, this is my opinion too. I get that the game was well-liked, but I tend to look at these things from a logistical standpoint, and people who haven't played the game or even heard of it will be confused if Afterlife
acts like it's canon. Since the filmmakers can only realistically hope/assume the viewers have seen the two movies, it probably won't be acknowledged.

joezlo wrote: ↑July 30th, 2021, 11:14 amCrazy thought; maybe that isn't Gozer at all. Maybe its a red herring like The Infinity War Commercials that included the Hulk running with the rest of the Avengers that was put there on purpose to throw people off...
I doubt it's like, an outright fake shot created for the trailers, but I would certainly be pleased if it was a huge misdirect.
