Protect Ya Neck – Robots Root 18 July 2018

Man, I like Manta and Oceanmaster, although the latter feels naked without neck armor. I know the talk of today is the sea dragon upgrade and all… I also  like that Fisherman King design. I’m more interested in these other six undersea realms than I am in Aquaman and his false anti-buoyancy. United the seven, indeed.

Meanwhile, in space:

  • Look I don’t know much about Dr. Who, but apparently the new Doctor can generate pizza, so I’m in.
  • Always the eternal idealist, I like to believe, I CHOOSE to believe, the 48 stars were intentional. Like Robin’s armored tunic and little boy shorts. Snyder knew whats up!
  • The History Channel is releasing an Area 52 series called Project: Blue Book. Because history. Aiden Gillen is in it though, so i’m there.
  • I remain optimistic about Bumblebee, but uh, these are starting to look a bit familiar and complicated…
  • Gotta appreciate that first Meg poster. Almost makes up for the Photoshop disaster of the second one.
  • The Starcourt Mall! Best Stranger Things teaser ever. EVER.
  • I was only interested in this fan-made film news because of learning the excellent term… Ludonarrative dissonance: is the conflict between a video game’s narrative told through the story and the narrative told through the gameplay. Ludonarrative, a compound of ludology and narrative, refers to the intersection in a video game of ludic elements – or gameplay – and narrative elements. Thats useful in my daily life! Somehow.
  • Hmmm… Marvel better get that A-Force movie together soon. If DC botches an all-female supers film first, it could become harder to get it pushed through.
  • How surreal is it that The First will feature Sean Penn (it’s a Mars colonization story) but from the creator of House of Cards, featuring his acrimonious ex-wife situation?
  • I like this Lego DB5 build even more than the MINI and the VW Type II, both of which felt hampered by the system’s challenges with compound curves.
  • I can’t tell if Patient Zero is a good movie or a bad movie, but I like intelligent, creepy zombies, and I like the conceit that Matt Smith’s character can talk to zombies only because he was once bitten, but not turned. Seems like the sort of reveal that would have been better in the film itself, rather than the trailer… the thing about music bothering zombies is interesting, too.
  • If Batwoman goes forward, it will be groundbreaking. Assuming executives don’t meddle.
  • While I’m REALLY tired of humanoid aliens in Star Trek, Discovery seems to have landed a second interesting design that outshines it’s TV budget.
  • I love Pena, but I don’t know if this film is going to work.
  • The Overlord trailer is finally out. I hope the new Hellboy film has this vibe of historical horror.
  • Millerverse adaptations are proceeding at Netflix, and they look pretty good on paper.
  • How has this not happened already? I would have thought feature film, but if sufficiently budgeted, a series is more nuanced…
  • Robot poster! Alert!
  • PLEASE let the Chameleon be in the new Spidey film. And Kraven. DO IT! I’m having Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends fever dream flashbacks.

That’s all for now. Back to power-loading on fight milk.
