Alfred Has the Moves – Robots Root 9 July 2018

Look, I’ve watched this about 33 times and it’s not old yet. It’s amazing. AMAZING.

Meanwhile, for science:

Legend of the White Tail Deer Hunter trailer

The Captain trailer

Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 merch sheets

and more (with jacket)

Doomed Mos Eisley movie

More grim and gritty Robin

How Infinity War should have ended.

Why a Baby Driver sequel?

Who is Captain America’s costume designer?

Tom Hardy as the next Bond?

Early concept art for War Machine and Black Widow

Here’s a Call of Cthulu game review. If you read it, you’ll start smelling colors, so beware!

MIA’s Paper Planes supercut with MUSKETS instead of gunfire. It’s a nearly 13 minute video, so high concept and pretty great. You don’t have to watch it. Just enjoy that it exists. Two minutes in and it wasn’t even done with the first volley in the main refrain, because the musket rate of fire is like 30s. The video is intercut with some Austrian 18th century recreationist group on a parapet somewhere. Hilarious. I appreciate.

Anime style fanarts of popular 80s action/SF movies activated!

7,000 degrees Kelvin. ha! Also I love both of those, though i’ve never tried them together…

Merpeople Attackeds! WOCHOWT, guy from Masterpiece Theater’s Victoria~

I just can’t wrap my head around the idea that there hasn’t been a live-action Gundam yet. Seems the technology is ready.

 

Thats all for now! Back to melting alive while your eyeballs implode!

TIRE FIRES and Other Things – 9 Nov 2016

WELP.

In other news…

Image
ITEM: For those of you watching WESTWORLD (and please tell me you are) this is a great article about the psychological principle referenced in the narrative, regarding the Bicameral Mind.

Image
ITEM: Here’s a fun list of tidbits gleamed from the Force Awakens commentary track. I love lists like this because I verrrrry rarely listen to the commentaries, but I like reading them.
via

Image
ITEM: Big plans for Marvel theme parks overseas. Wow, sounds fun!
via

:::

Image
ITEM: You don’t even have to be down with Gundam to enjoy this stop-motion film.
via

:::

Image
ITEM: I did NOT see this one coming, as my son is prone to say. The fans of Young Justice have been pining for years now about the abrupt cancellation of the popular series… and now, out of the blue, they announced a third season!
via

:::

Image
ITEM: Feige is interesting to listen to (or read about) and I tend to be down with what he talks about. If there’s one area that is particularly gray when it comes to the divide between the MCU and the MCTVU, it’s continuity. We’ve talked about how the shows reference the films, making them enjoyable and feel part of the global MCU picture, but the films never reference the shows directly for several reasons (though Feige has been atypically cagey about, so to speak, Defenders being involved in the upcoming Avengers films) … sometimes events overlap and contradict (I suppose the biggest example is Coulson dying in Avengers and being resuscitated with Kree shit in SHIELD; it isn’t a direct conflict because Coulson hasn’t been referenced in the MCU since, but anyway) but this was an odd one, where Feige talked about the plans for Inhumans now that they were bumped from the immediate film planning schedule… and talked about a TV appearance. We’ve had Inhumans in SHIELD for two seasons now. I think he meant the Inhuman Royal Family.

ITEM: Amidst the potentially spurious talk recently of execs rumored to be complaining that Affleck’s script for Batman is shit (and he keeps saying it isn’t ready for prime time yet) here’s some rah-rahing from Deathstroke his own self.

Image
ITEM: Two bits here: one, closer looks at Vulture, showing some internal logic to his design that I don’t hate; and two, part of a long Feige interview, where Keaton is actually confirmed as Vulture, which we have taken as fact for like 6 months.

ITEM: Rumor has it Kinberg is planning a reboot of the X-franchise for fox, dumping Singer and yet ‘hopeful’ of keeping their top three remaining stars after losing Jackman and Stewart. I’m not opposed to the reboot, though I like the ‘first class’ and ‘apocalypse-specific original x-men’ like Jean Grey and Cyclops… but I AM opposed to retaining those other actors. Let’s just start over, and rethink what makes X-Men work. In fact, how about we just give marvel the keys back again.

ITEM: Upside-Down I get it…

Thats’s all for today. It’s been a difficult week. Let’s look forward to positive things to come, such as Robot-Kraken podcasts and new arts! I had to postpone Doctor Strange due to a family emergency, but I hope to see it this weekend.

Does James Bond Dance? – Robot’s Root 160529

Image
So much Bond speculation over the past week! First, it was that Gillian Anderson’s mockup Bond poster was being taken seriously. Then it was that Tom Hiddleston was in serious talks to take over (and boy, can he dance)… and then it was that outlier Jamie Bell was also in talks. Lastly, today, it’s that Night Manager director Susanne Bier might join Hiddleston on the next film, replacing Sam Mendes. All indications are that Night Manager is excellent and it’s certainly easy to imagine Hiddleston in the role (as a suave, intelligent, less physical Bond) though Bell has charisma and is certainly fit (the ears, tho) but maybe the most interesting point would be a female Bond director for the first time ever… on a franchise well known for either exploiting women or overcompensating half-heartedly about exploiting women.

– I’ve never really seen much of Rosa Salazar, but she looks the part for Battle Angel… in so much as she’s pretty, has a neck, and is ready to be fetishized by slo-mo.

– Another awesome piece from Chris Weston, this time De Hard. I love the aspect ratio and glass detailing. It’s inspired to say the least…

– It sounds like Westworld is back on for Fall 2016 after all. SUCH GOOD NEWS, I choose to believe.

– Bosslogic created a manip of Steve Rogers as a full-on HYDRA supersoldier, in response to Marvel’s latest over-hyped controversy. I’d ditch the H but otherwise this is so good I actually WANT it as a film now. The texture is awesome. I’ve added it to my to-draw queue, in fact.

– Nice write-up on Axel Alonso, whose name we butchered on a recent Robot-Kraken podcast… I agree he’s done pretty great things as EIC, as far as reachinga younger demographic today goes… diversity, reinvigorated products, differentiation in the marketplace to some degree, general interest…

– This is, I sincerely hope, unfounded rumor. I can’t have ‘troubled Rogue One production’ in my life. AT ALL. It is a blessed diamond.

– Comixology just launched an all you can read sub model, mirroring Marvel Unlimited. I’m actually intrigued because there are some third party properties I’ve fallen dangerously behind on, ending in a preposition. I’m looking at you, Dark Horse BPRD and Hellboy…

– This is nice to read, if nothing else. It adds slightly more practical reality to the idea of netflix absorbing Agent Carter in the future. When the star says she’s down with asymmetrical shooting schedules…
