A Cape Story – Robot’s Root 7 Feb 2018

The full trailer for Solo is looking really good. I was talking to Lung about this: I really hope they discouraged the actors from trying to do impressions of the older actors we know so well, and just focused on the character and, at most, mannerisms. The picture perfect Ewan McGregor Obi Wan didn’t do our expectations any justice. I really want this film to be more about mining a new story and less about mimicry. I’m super in.

  • Jumanji 2 is happening. And spoiler alert for an upcoming episode of Robot-Kraken: that’s a GOOD thing.
  • Here’s a first look at Rukia from the live-action Bleach film. Which reminds me, here’s a super sweet art print you might like:

OK it’s my last night in Indonesia, so I’s signing off to do more work. See you on the other side!

C. Martin Croker passed away recently in his 50s. He was, among other things, the voice of both Moltar and Zorak from SG:C2C. In honor of his passing, please enjoy my favorite episode “Flipmode” featuring a pre-steroids Busta Rhymes as the guest, and lots and lots of blueberries.

ITEM: I have a lot of trouble with the Infinity War thing. The problem is that these big budget supers films have all had world shattering, universe destroying stakes… even Suicide Squad had a planetkiller engine in it. So it’s hard to see Thanos as being a take-your-breath-away scale of bad guy. To have him sucking up souls and throwing the Infinity Gauntlet around in order to woo Death? If true, it feels, at least in summary, as too pedestrian. I don’t know WHAT you do for a galactic super-SUPER-dustup movie. I trust those guys, and I trust Marvel, so I remain optimistic, but I dunno. I have ideas, sort of spawned by the multiversal-collapse thing that Marvel comics had going on a few years ago…

ITEM: Welp, the project Neil Blomkamp has been e-teasing turns out to be a 15th anniversary special new short for the BMW Driver film series, which is pretty cool, actually. It’s the second best anything Clive Owen ever did.

ITEM: I was wary of Jumanji 2… but I like the cast a LOT. Like, the entire cast. So that’s a thing.

ITEM: I had no idea every frame of Black Panther in Civil War was a CGI overlay. We saw so much live footage of filming in costume, so that’s interesting. I haven’t watched the commentary yet, but I wonder what happened with Vision. We’ve seen a lot of him in full makeup being filmed, suggesting he’d be at least partly practical FX…

ITEM: While I’m still disappointed Star Wars: Battlefront doesn’t include a story mode, I AM chuffed about the Death Star pack. I’ll give it a try, circa 2032.
