Haley (known in some circles as AwsmEngrGrl) was born, raised, and educated in the flyover states of America.
She's been a fan of scifi and fantasy tv, books, and movies from a young age, and recently started reading all of the Marvel comics starting with Fantastic Four #1. All of them.

THE SECRET ORIGIN OF LAUREN: Lauren thought that she was just a normal girl until the day that someone informed her that only geeks read comics and watch Star Wars. And from that day forward, a geek she was. Now she spends most of her time reading comics, writing horror fiction, watching entirely too much TV, and knitting adorable lacy scarves while watching hideously depressing movies. Warning: talking with Lauren may result in an overly enthusiastic outburst known as the "fangirl flail" when discussing topics of interest. Topics of interest include Star Wars, X-men, Marvel, comics in general, A Song of Ice and Fire, genre fiction, genre TV shows, cute animals, animals that everyone else thinks are horrible, and Roman history.

One Shot Review On 2021 Film Shang Chi And The Legend of the Ten Rings (A Marvel Fan Podcast) LoS401

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Lauren, Agent Michelle, Consultant Chris, and Specialist Consultant Aki and Producer of the show Director SP discuss the 2021 Marvel Studios film Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the weekly Marvel News. The Team welcomes Aki to the podcast and welcome back Agent Michelle to the podcast from her sabbatical. The Team then debriefs you on how their overall impressions of the film are slightly split and why, the mis-translations in the film, how a few Team members were thrown off by language and captions at the beginning of the film, the story of Shang Chi and Xialing’s parents, how Wenwu villain motivations were delightful, the future possibilities with Xialing, some deep Marvel Cinematic universe tie ins that were not obvious, the Kung Fu martial arts fighting review, the dragons in the film and how many wished the MCU had them earlier, the wonderful depictions of Chinese mythical creatures in Ta Lo, how the karaoke was amazing AND culturally accurate, how some cultural nuances were not accurately shown on screen, the epic bus fight twitter thread commentary, and the Team members’ predictions on where the characters will return in the MCU. Stay tuned after the credits for a few minutes of Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. bonus audio.

San Francisco Bus Driver Critiques Shang Chi and the Ten Rings Bus Fight Scene

https://twitter.com/that_mc/status/1459613123590066180?s=20

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Finally watching Shang-Chi, here as a bus operator to rate the SFT transit factors of The Bus Scene:

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

SFT (San Francisco Transit?) is using a New Flyer D60 articulated 60 foot motor coach for the 1 California.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

But the bus is headed south on Noe at 21st St, they are seriously off route!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I like these brushed steel and green cushion seats, they look nicer and harder to clean than muni’s

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

That’s a real ad  for the jazz and blues festical you can find in muni buses

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

As a bus operator, this is the moment I pop my parking brake and open the doors.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This would Definitely Happen

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Energy sword arm man cuts through the floor of the articulating section. Also wears sensible boots for working on a bus!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This cuts through an air hose under the bus!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Our bus operator, played by Michael-Anthony Taylor, discovers his service brake isn’t working. He’s mashing on the treadle (pedal) and not stopping. That’s terrible! And he’s wearing earphones. That’s terrible. He definitely could be charged with an avoidable incident by SFT.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

He should be reaching for the Parking and Emergency Brake on his left control panel:

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Cap number 8964 would be a part time operator at muni, but SFT might have a different scheme?

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Now we are heading west on California at Mason St, and this is a serious hill. There could very well be cable cars in the way. Not to mention this has been a 40 minute bus ride from 21st and Noe, minimum.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Quick digression on how Air Brakes work. Energy sword arm man cut the brake lines, which would let all the air out of the system. When this happens, a backup, mechanical brake called the Spring Brake activates.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

The spring brake held open by air pressure. If there is no pressure, the brake is applied, and the wheels will not turn. Air brakes have a warning, that is audible as a very loud, continuous buzzer, whenever the air pressure drops below a certain threshold.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

A bus operator will stop the bus when this low air pressure warning goes off, because if the air brakes keep loosing pressure, the spring brakes WILL activate, and the bus is going to stop very very suddenly.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Bus operators don’t want to stop very hard because that’s how you get Falls On Board.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

When bus operators want to know what’s going on inside our passenger area, we look in the mirror up top, not over our shoulder

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This helps us keep our attention on steering the bus, to avoid cars that will definitely make illegal left turns in front of us all day every day. Powell and California.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

OUCH

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Operator wasn’t even wearing his seat belt! Workmans Comp not going to cover this. Also: Fall on Board.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is top quality bus driving. Also get the line “Every time I try to drive a bus I get yelled at” which a) lol and b) that’s just being a bus operator. We get yelled at whenever we try to drive a bus too.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I’m going to take this part by part. First of all, I want to get into the operators seat this easily just once in my entire life.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This space isn’t empty, there’s a big compartment with computers and electronics in there.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Operators lunch!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Seat Belt, should have been fastened!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is the parking and emergency brake. This is what the operator should have pulled way back when Shang-chi threw the first punch. If you are ever in a situation where you are unexpectedly in a run away bus and need to stop it, this yellow handle is the thing to grab.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Some operators really do sit with the seat all the way down and the wheel up and forward, but I find this very uncomfortable, like driving with your chin. When a bus operator takes over a bus, they immediately start by adjusting the seat to their preference.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Shang-Chi knows how to check on the passengers!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Every bus has a fire extinguisher, and we check every day before we pull out of the yard. It is intended for exactly these situations.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Every bus operator cheers when the scooters get mashed to shreds.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I think this is more or less how an articulated section would react. I don’t actually operate articulated motor coaches, so IDK

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is Stockton at Bush, on top of the Stockton Street Tunnel.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I have no idea if this is what’s down there.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

The rear view mirrors are bus operators best friends. We cannot safely turn the bus if they aren’t adjusted properly. I would take a moment to check and make sure they are how I like them after this.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is how everyone asks to be let into the bus when we aren’t at a stop. Too real.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I’m impressed that she knew how to operate the door lever. When the doors are open, an interlock activates that prevents the bus from moving. This would also have been an option to try for an out of control bus. Also, that’s where you keep your coffee canteen, true facts.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

DON’T LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER WHILE DRIVING! The hazards are ahead of you. Aim High in Steering, everyone.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Now we are heading into the Stockton Street tunnel. This is MC Escher’s Hill, apparently.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I Laughed. So. Hard. at the stop request gag. Saw it coming from miles away OMG. On Muni, someone would absolutely have used this within 20 seconds of the start of the fight.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

We are finally coming to a stop at Larkin and North Point. Quite a ways to warp from Union Square IMO.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is the look I give passengers when I stopped too far from the curb. Good bus stops are hard. I hope you enjoyed my thread as much as I enjoyed this scene.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Unfortunately I think this guy isn’t going to keep his job as a bus operator, though. I’m glad he’s ok, that was a nasty knock he took. Let’s hope he lands on his feet. Maybe he’ll drive charters?

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I need to add a coda to this thread. First of all, amazing to see it get so much attention. I did not expect this. I guess this is where I make a soundcloud plug?

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

But really I just want you to support public transport by riding the bus more and driving a personal car less. Support policies that fund public transport, and support policies that prioritize people over parking spots.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

And thank your operator when you get off the bus. Every “Thank you” makes our day on the road a little better. I’m still a rookie operator, new to the job, but it make a difference to me.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Also mad props to all the talented people involved in bringing this scene to the screen: @SimuLiu and @awkwafina and Michael-Anthony Taylor and @big9nasty (energy sword arm man, or razorfist, I learned)

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Brad Allan and Andy Cheng, choreographers for the scene, and the stunt performers, and the stunt driver (Kial Butler, Andrea Berchtold, and Cameron Ambridge have stunt driver credits in the film)

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

And also the special effects teams that put in I am sure untold hours to bring this scene to life. Huge congratulations and thanks to those who brought us this entertainment.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

And THANK YOU each and every one for riding Muni.
