GOG2 is Pushing my Technicolor Buttons – Robots Root 29 April 2017

It’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 weekend (somewhere) and the reviews look good. I’m drawn back to this comparison, above, of the marketing and how well those firms understood both the material and the target market. Not because I want to see JL fail, but because I want to see GOG2, and all the supers films possible, succeed.

 

Meanwhile, a Robot’s Root weekend edition for 4/29/17!

  • “That’s not MY Superman!” they all said.
  • Tyler Labine just joined Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Excuse me while I add that to my sizable queue. Netflix/BBC
  • Great second look at that Kingsman 2 trailer. I LOOOOOOVE all the cheesy americana details. The BASEBALLS.
  • Sobering encapsulation of everything clouding ST: Discovery’s production progress. Doesn’t look gooooood.
  • My lovely wife worked full time, took night classes, and did final presentations (twice) within a week of giving birth. She did not, however, table hop battlements.
  • SMASHY MOUTHY! I’m so down.
  • I kind of like the idea of a purple Gamora. There’s so much blue skin in the MCU space stuff with the Kree and other races… having the purple almost feels like it makes more sense.
  • I’m not in the sport camera market. I have a GoPro but it is mostly for documenting my deaths in the event I am flattened on the bike. But if I were, IF I WERE, this camera
  • BRB, have to go install Nightingale flooring. Because ninjas.
  • Is WALL-E Satan? Maybe.
  • Is this rad marketing or curious desperation or a meltdown? Who’s to say.

Finally, I wanted to mention an add to our most recent few Robot-Kraken Podcasts, where we’ve been discussing our art process and how it has changed over the years: I talked a bit about my father’s experiences as a graphic artist when I was a kid, and how many of the early (and current) tools in the digital realm were approximations of physical actions from real paste-up work. Here’s a great video on how the industry evolved, if you’re interested in the details.
