Boba Fett? WHERE?! – Robots Root 26 October 2018

When the Mandalorian was announced, I thought I could just make out the distant din of the death drums for the Boba Fett film. And so!

 

ROOT!

  • The latest in the list of films that should not be remade… has an apparent script
  • Brad Pitt as Rasputin? Rachel Weisz as anyone? This Kingsman prequel sounds better than I had ever imagined possible. Which was a low bar, admittedly.
  • This Jimmy Kimmel/Avengers comic took me back to reading those from my youth, like Letterman (the homage) and similar ones. Trippy to see it in a contemporary setting, as it looks so tacky today. I mean, it coasts on the homage, which is at least something, I guess. I’m not one who likes the dips into reality in comics. The Presidents that are obvious references to the real world, or even the 9-11 tie-ins…(grouchy, I know)
  • This Mulan art show has some pretty great projects. Check em out!
  • Alexander Skarsgard has joined Godzilla vs. King Kong, so thats a thing. I’ve lost track. Is this AFTER Planet Kong or Deathmatch of Monsters 3000 or whatever it is? Millie Bobby Brown is in the cast, so that’s what threw me. Same film? Different film?  Who knows. How could we possibly ever know.
  • I can’t believe it took THIS long, but here’s a Gundam kit with a robotics pack. Love it. Where was S.T.E.M. when I was a kid dammit tole.
  • This was kind of a surprise: they found more material from Ray Harryhausen, and are parlaying that into a new film. Of course, it appears to be all of his Grade Echhh material.
  • Cool article on ‘the Monsters of Climate Change‘… I never noticed that Annihilation’s Mimic Bear had a human skull fused up in there! (More on that in our latest Robot-Kraken Podcast!)
  • I’m intrigued by the Big Kill… I mean, it looks like a multiplayer RPG set in the Old West. Hilarious.
  • The Big Lebowski will never not exist. We at least have THAT.

 

That’s all for tonight. It’s not too early to get your HAL 9000 Xmas Ornament. I’m already on it, cousins.

Thats Like Your Opinion Man – Robots Root 21 August 2018

That thing you need that you didn’t know you needed but now can’t haz because it’s sold out. But WANT.

Meanwhile, in space:

  • That Unity engine robot design used for Adam and the NB short film work was leaked walking around in a driveway… it was a lighting study, but still, people got sufficiently triggered. TO THE BUNKERS!
  • It seems like an eternity ago (but not an Eternity, or Ego) that Mark Ruffalo spoiled Infinity War. Ha.
  • When Miller was still attached to Deadpool 2, he planned a post-credits scene with the cast of the collapsed FF movie. As a person who actually liked some of that project, I wouldn’t have minded this, thought it would have played for laughs mocking them, which I get. Anyway, about the costume redesigns. Not bad, actually. Better than in their own film! I don’t like how lumpy and meaty the neck parts are, but otherwise.
  • Here we have a scene with Daredevil stalking a copycat… meanwhile, on the same day, Gotham pics surfaced showing the stupid roided out punks from the Dark Knight comic. Coincidence? I THINK NOT! Everything is Dark Knight, and Dark Knight is everything.
  • John August has created a list for people to populate, of movies not available digitally… he’s hoping to spin this into a mechanism to get some of these released. Great idea.
  • I really want to see a trailer for I Am Mother. It IS an odd observation that Swank appears to be wearing the same outfit as Winstead in 10 Cloverfield Lane… anyway, the titular bot was seen at SDCC and looked amazing. WETArrific.
  • About time Ironheart got a different look. Really didn’t like that she was just wearing an Iron Man armor around.
  • I love how much Idris Elba has been trolling fans about the James Bond thing. He wins either way.
  • Finally, a great primer on what is, and isn’t true kung-fu in film, and how it doesn’t really pay to value one over another.

WE HAVE TO GO BACK! – 1 Nov 2016

Only two people, excluding my lovely wife, to date, have understood my costume. When did LOST become vintage television?

Meanwhile…

Image
ITEM: So they confirmed Eleven for Season 02. I mean, if they DIDN’T, given how much this character broke into the mainstream consciousness, I’d be stunned.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: This was kind of an interesting, short video of an ex-military type analyzing and describing why the alley scene in Collateral is possibly the best (ie. most realistic for weapon experts) gun combat scene in a film, period.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: All of the hubbub has been about whether Hemsworth was effectively apologetic about a party costume a year ago, or about these guys publicly supporting the Dakota Pipeline protesters. I’m just digging on the details of the tunic. I love the simple layering and giving the chest ‘orbs’ purpose. I know how that sounds.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: I find this project surreal, not being by the Coens. On the other hand, Turturro is an accomplished director AND he created the character, prior to the filming of Lebowski, or so I recently read.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: I loved this film and the cast within. I generally like Liman. He can be full of shiot sometimes, and I don’t see how he’s going to revolutionize the sequel concept (any more than he’ll “turn the superhero genre on its head” with Dark Justice Whatever) but I’l STILL pre-sold.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: After the overly-long Luke Cage, maybe a shorter season isn’t a bad thing. I tend to react negatively when I hear about small seasons, but if it’s quality, then cool.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Some hoopla has been made about the casting listing of a Klingon Captain, given that this takes place supposedly prior to the original series. But I suspect it’s simply the captain of a Klingon vessel.
via

Thus and therefore, that’s all for today! Minder OUT.

Ragnarockanrolla – 20 May 2016

Image
Well, looks like Jeff Goldblum wasn’t being courted for the Spider-Man villain after all. Apparently he’s been cast as the Grandmaster, one of Marvel’s space-LSD-era’s wierder demigods, and I’ll hazard a guess, the one responsible for a Planet Hulk type situation in Thor: Ragnarok.

Image
Grandmaster, or as I used to call him, Gamesguy

Image
Meanwhile, Tessa Thompson will play Valkyrie, Cate Blanchett is confirmed as Hela, and Karl Urban will be Skurge (oddly without Enchantress?)… Hey, I drew him awhile back, as seen above.

Founding Beastie Boys member from their punk years, John Berry, died this week. Easy to forget the origin of this band, and that before Luscious Jackson, it was even multi-gender…

Lung forwarded to me this excellent Xavier School recruitment video via 80s TV commercial style. Love that computer lab!

Even Lung admits that Powerless looks intriguing. I can’t believe we live in a world [cue trailer guy voice: IN A WORLD…] where we have rival DC and Marvel normal-people-in-supers-world comedies on the fall schedule. I was surprised at the cast that they put together here. Pretty impressive!

In an interview about his acclaimed new show Lady Dynamite, Hurwitz confrmed everyone’s on board for an AD Season 5… but more interesting to me at this juncture: they recut Season 4 as a 22 episode traditional season of AD with the cast and scenes interwoven and the narration redone. That sounds exciting…

This is easily the most awesome thing ever to appear on the interwebs. Seth Rogan sweded the Preacher trailer.

When it was announced earlier this week that Supergirl was moving to the CW, many fans began to anticipate the crossover potential. CW is wasting no time, teasing a mega crossover in December with characters from Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Toles of Tomorrow (itself an ongoing crossover of sorts, I guess)…

Ha, love this idea: Chris McQuarrie posited that he’d do a SW spin-off if he got Michael B Jordan and Lando as the subject. I’d be down.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michael Keaton is not only back in the running for the Vulture, but in final negotiations… I’m pleased with this possibility. Even if Keaton playing the Vulture is pretty on the nose. Or on the beak.

This Ant-Man figure comes with a massive ant, which is DOPE

However, this Sadfleck Batman glider toy is sad.
