Cackling in 3 Frames Per Second – Robots Root 30 June 2018

Now you too can have a laughing Prince Adam figure of your very own. Memetic!

I’m done with my Spring conventions, and now in Washington on a short vacation with the younglings. Here’s a blast of interesting somethings over the last few weeks!

  • Wonder Woman + George Orwell? You decide!
  • Everyone’s talking about that Black Manta helmet, but I’m all about Orm’s sweet hairstyle.
  • Apologists and recontextualists aside, these comments nauseated me.
  • If nothing else, Red Notice sure has an eye-catching cast.
  • You too can build an Alexa-enabled L3-37. But… should you?
  • Preacher 3 is only a week away!
  • Incredibles 2 was a hoot… and the weekend box office sure seems to indicate people realized it. It does look decidedly familiar… by design.
  • Here’s a great video of Andy Serkis discussing mocap’s evolution
  • Here’s an interesting article positing that Shazam should be the path to the future of the DCEU.
  • As someone who works in a small, pressure-cooker environment without HR and with unconventional, lets say, communication from time to time, I’ve been following the discussion on workplace abuse in Hollywood (a mechanism for talking about it not in Hollywood, of course. ie. the real world)… the sexual abuse and sexual politics are very obviously evil, but the verbal abuse has been something that creators in the entertainment industry have been forgiven for (as long as they are ‘successful’ and ‘auteurs’, my emphasis… on the one hand, some people need to be more prepared and clear about the hostile environments they are getting into, and on the other hand, people should be respectful, or there should be consequences. Interesting debate.
  • Everyone’s laughing about how they isolated Iron Fist knowingly. I just loved that they included Colleen Wing!

 

More to come!

 

Luc Besson has Such Wonderful Toys – 10 November 2016

Image

So, the full Valerian trailer looks as much like a remake of the SW Prequels as it does Luc Besson’s Heavy Metal fueled adolescent fantasy stew meat, like an upgraded fifth element. Nothing even critical in that statement, really.

Meanwhile, this:

Image
ITEM: First look at Kong from Skull Island… he looks like an ape. A damn, dirty ape. With red underfur detailing, much like that new Japanese Gojira with the weird dildo tail.
via

:::

ITEM: It’s apparently DYSTOPIAN CYBERPUNK FUTURE THURSDAY. Right on the heels of Idiocracy: the Documentary this week, we have this series of straight-up cyberpunk articles:

Image
1. AI Lip Reading meets 2001 Levels.

Image
2. Paralyzed Limbs Triggered into Action via Cyberware
via

Image
3. Secret Nazi Base Discovered in Remote Arctic Island (bonus points: few days later, mysterious electronic ping coming from the depths near Nova Scotia, AND a lost nuke discovered while hunting sea cucumbers)
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Tesla coil powered gatling gun (for 35mm film canisters) because reasons. Think of it as proof of concept for something super violent and awesome.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: I was hoping for a cool, darker Black Hole, actually. That seems like a stupid sentence construction, now that I look at it. Anyway, I’m still nostalgic about the toys of my youth, especially crushed whatsisface.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Ciaran ‘Mance Rayder’ Hinds has been cast as Steppenwolf… or his voice and mo-cap. It’s sort of like Josh Brolin as Thanos… it helps just imagining who it’s CGI’d all over.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Lung sent this to me the day I was flying down to LA, and I got over-excited thinking it was the full trailer. It’s just another 3 second clip. But it’s straight up old school GiTS and one of her best moments ever from the series, so I liked it very much.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: In other news, every interesting character from the Marvel Netflix universe is in Defenders. EVERY ONE. Just like last week. But more.

Why are they Looking at Harley Changing Dunno -11 April 2016

Image
The new SS trailer, which I again told myself I wouldn’t watch and then immediately watched, gives a good deal more dialog and a few new story beats. I like everything I’m seeng and hearing. After Civil War and Preacher, this next in my hotlist. Speaking of hotlist… that Harley though…

In other news…

Related, Ayers tweeted an amusing takedown on the ‘comedic reshoots’ thing…

PREACHER I CANT EVEN.
I was watching the sneak clip they released today (love the S curve) and was just so down. I still am thrilled that two of the best actors from Misfits are in this.

Supposedly we’ll know casting and director assignments on Captain Marvel this summer or thereabouts. Cross fingers…

Kris brought this up in our last Robot-Kraken podcast, but Sister of the Snake Jessica Henwick has been cast as Colleen Wing in the new Iron Fist series. Most excellent. Especially not blonde.

Rumored for a few months, Cinemax admits officially that Rogen and co. are developing The Boys for the premium channel. I hope they go ALL IN on this one. Anything less than that will feel like a pale impersonation of what the comic maybe sounds like if someone were to tell your grandmother about it or something. Same issue with the Nemesis project, and I suppose what apparently plagues Powers.

I am less enthused about the producer of Chuck developing a US version of Misfits. I don’t see how they’re going to get there from here.

Here’s an idea: disguise a handgun as a Nintendo pistol. What could go wrong. Way to illustrate how seriously you take firearm handling.

So, another podcast will be recorded tonight, but assuming we survive it, see you here tomorrow for more news dorkery.
