Deadpool Backs Away Slowly and Other Things 27 Jan 2016

Well, that made my night last night…

In other news:

1. I do love Honest Movie Posters. I’m scheduled to be seeing Revenant Saturday night, so hm…. I’ll confirm the bear buggery next week. I know that will be a topic on everyone’s minds.

2. I thought Deadpool was supposed to be entirely scarred? I mean i know they want to maximize the pretty face factor, but isn’t that THE POINT?

3. Among tidbits from Bob Iger’s recent talk: More SW coming down the pipe, beyond what we know about, and Marvel films will go on “forever”… all pretty basic, obvious stuff. but good to hear they aren’t being shortsighted about the legs of these properties.

4. I think we tend to gloss over the spectacular things happening in our current tech climate, because we’re just so USED to all the awesome. I mean, regular discussions about Mars missions and genetic engineering? Anyway, SpaceX’s Dragon successfully performing a hover test. DOU!

5. I thought the note at the end, about Luthor knowing about a larger history of metahumans and being interested in WW was a thing. But man, why is Affleck’s Batman always shown puffed up and leaning back, when he should be hunching down, and Superman here is hunching down, when HE should be leaning back? What is even…

6. Kevin Smith was another stealth Stormtrooper voice. Not really the reason I posted this. I was just reminded how mych I love how the Stormtroopers in this film have different roles and equipment. They used to, as well, certainly, but more so, this time. It feels that way. I mean plain old Stormtroopers (not the edited out black ones, or the snow troopers, or the old speeder bike scouts…) like here, with the tripod machine gun blaster thing. I have a box of figures I haven’t cracked that offers some of these. Certainly TR8TR is another example, though I did wonder why there would be riot control in a landing craft.

7. At SOME POINT, at SOME TIME, we’ll get that black and white version of Fury Road…

8. Allumette looks to be an interesting, and welcome, direction for VR projects. Don’t go for realism: give us stylized worlds. It works just as it does on animated properties that escape the Uncanny Valley…

9. I loved this. Lots of Aussie code in this one. Super refreshing, though.

10. Finally, this was in a concept feed Ironlung sent me offline. I love the idea of using Lego in the keyrings. Modular AND cool storage idea!

Gyrating Jawas and Other Things 26 Jan 2016

ITEM: So, I’ve watched parts of this hot mess like three times in the last few days, mostly in the process of trying to rickroll friends into watching it. Which doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it. You totally should. Otherwise, you’d miss Boba Fett doing a jaunty dance, Padme and her dear daddy Vader doing sexytime dances, and a writhing Slave Leia doing moves I]m surprised Disney authorized. This apparently came from one of the Disney parks. It’s so surreal seeing dancers doing a medley of pop dances in familiar SW costumes… it feels so weird and wrong. I’ve seen those old ones with Vader and Stormtroopers poplocking or whatever, but this one went way beyond. So weird.

The best part of the whole thing? The autotranslation of the blurb that accompanied the post:

GOOD SUPER FIRE!

ITEM: I have to say, and say, and say: why can’t we just have 95 minutes (not too many) of raging Batman raging hard against Superman. That’s all I want out of this movie. I LOVE how he PUNCtuates his STATEments with EMPHasis. Bad ass! Go Batfleck!

Speaking of, I just saw on thefacebooks that someone screencapped a clip from the Batman Maybe Dream Sequence with Maybe Parademons that appears to show Darkseid’s omega symbol in the earthworks in the background. Assuming this wasn’t photochopped. I don’t remember this scene…

Update: better image:

Image
Also, new trailer is out with very little new content, favorably frankly, but what I thought was most amusing was that the first three times I tried to see it, it had been removed thanks to a copyright claim by Turkish Airlines. I wonder if this is an example of those copyright bots going nuts, even when it was legitimate use.

Oh, and by the way, supposedly WW is 5000 years old, and in ‘retirement’ due to being overwhelmed by man’s brutaility… which is an odd story point. It puts quite a different spin on the events of the WW solo film (that can’t be her first foray into the world during WWI then… this makes no sense)… but hey, Snyder, whatever.

ITEM: Another movie I had no interest in, and MAYYYYBE has elevated to Blu-Ray viewing status if nothing else: WoW. I love Duncan Jones, but I have soooo much fantasy movie fatigue. I didn’t even try and watch the Hobbits. But I DO like that we have a human/orc buddy cop situation happening here. Who will be the love interest they playfully compete over in between extended CGI violence encounters? Another species? I vote Drow. Do they have Drow in WoW?

ITEM: Today’s Rognarok rumor: the film will include Planet Hulk.. which I’m absolutely in favor of (not that I read those books or anything)…

Also, it’s all but confirmed that Hela will be the big bad in Ragnarok, which works for me.

ITEM: Screen Rant put together a video about scenes cut from the Force Awakens. The narrative is weirdly apologetic, but I found a few interesting. I actually have that Snowspeeder in a box as a future gift for my kids.

ITEM: What is even HAPPENING with Harrison Ford now? Yachts to buy?

ITEM: Avatar blinked. Kind of funny, given all of Cameron’s bluster, cracks me up imagining him finding out that Disney bumped Star Wars VIII to Xmas 2017.
