Clark Kenpo Karate – Robots Root 18 May 2018

I’m stoked on the new M:I trailer. I really want to see mustachio’d Caville wrecking a bathroom. And not in the way I usually wreck it.

This is happening IN THE FUTURE (because I’m in Jakarta) but also in the past (because I’ve been out of network for 2 days):

  • “Journey to Wakanda: a cross between the Jetsons and a 90s JET Magazine” Honest Trailer for Black Panther. Dead on. I just rewatched it on the plane. One thing that was more aggravating the second time around was the rubbery CGI. This BTS video of that aspect of production is really interesting. I just cant shake though how much the rubbery physics took me out of the immersion of those scenes. He never looked real doing his super movements. And frankly, I prefer the look of the practical work. Check this side by side:

 

  • I’d be so down with a USGrant biopic from Spielberg and DiCaprio. It seems tailor-made for them.
  • Someone, somewhere, greenlit a Pennyworth series, featuring Alfred and Thomas Wayne in the 60s. I mean.
  • Look, I don’t know if these sneaky snaps of S01 style black costume Daredevil are to be flashbacks or a return to the old school I loved so much, but either way, 10:1 that’s Bullseye he’s sparring with.
  • Interesting comments from Simon Pegg, that Tarantino’s ST script won’t be madcap, but more respectful of the franchise. That’s refreshing actually. I’d like it either way, probably, just as I loved Waititi’s good-natured abuse of the MCU. But I’m more interested in seeing what Tarantino would do when trying to play nicely with someone else’s toys, rather than just Warren Ellising the hell out of it, so to speak. Not to be confused with THIS project, also discussed this week…
  • While Agents of SHIELD’s relationship with the MCU has been controversial and one sided at best, I do like what I’m seeing: the final season is being delayed until after Avengers 4 comes out. No accident there…
  • It’s not entirely the first time I’ve read fan theories about The Dark Knight’s Joker having a military background, but FFS it’s Patton Oswalt so of course it’s such a well defined and executed theory I can’t even. I’m in! I also love, tangentially, the idea that some have proposed: that the SS’ Joker is a former Robin. Unrelated really, but there it is.
  • Zombieland 2 with the original cast??? It’s like a fever dream made real.
  • I was thinking on the plane, watching a film with a lot of scenes with little or no dialog (The Hostiles) how much I’d be interested in an action movie with no dialogue. There have been more than a few contemporary films over the years with no script, though I’ve wondered if and how there are screenwriter credits for such projects. Anyway, I was imagining a John Wick with no dialog. Damn. Anyway, they greenlit a Snake Eyes solo film. Maybe thats an opportunity. I mean, there’s no way Paramount would screw this up right?
  • Feige kinda sorta confirmed there’s a plan for Kamala Khan’s teen, Muslim Ms. Marvel in the MCU. Which is a good thing, because if Marvel doesnt use the whole Phase 4 thing to bring a younger, more diverse and interesting view of the marvel world to screen, then they are dumb as rocks. Space rocks.
  • holy crap, Villaneuve’s Dune is actually moving forward. STOKE!
  • This supposed plot-summary for Obi-Wan is yawnerrific. Can’t we just have space Lone Wolf and Cub already?
  • The coolest thing I’ve ever seen, Mayan pop culture monsters specific.
  • How dope is it that Nolan released a restored ‘original’ cut of 2001 complete with grain? I mean, what a project.

Hokay… back to watching the world burn…

Shes a Good Secretary – 3 November 2016

ITEM: This new trailer is really good. It lays out the structure of the film and the nature of the Amazonians and their relationship, at least somewhat, to the outside world, and established WW’s conflict with both the world and her own people. Also more amazing up and over leg kicks and knee scrapers and sword swipeys and that great bullet deflection in the alley and Pam doing her kung fu and…Image
well, of course, for me the highlight was this shot of the villain. SYMBOLISM!

Meanwhile…

ITEM: I think it’s positively criminal that it’s taken this long for Talia Al Ghul to appear in some sort of live action continuity. I’m not discounting Marion Cotillard’s Miranda… that was a great element to the story, but I mean the Talia from the comics, a trained fighter, eventual mother of Damian Wayne…

ITEM: I sure like the idea that we can go for smaller films after Infinity Tole. I don’t know that that’s exactly what he means, but I do believe the group films can stand to not be global extinction events every time.

ITEM: Christian reviewer warns Doctor Strange is, like Dungeons & Dragons, a gateway to satanism. I love it. IM THERE! Monday night in fact.

ITEM: I don’t know the book series, but I liked some of what I saw. Supposedly it’s just a delay based on the post-production schedule, but hopefully that’s ALL it is.

ITEM: I’m pre-sold, but still!

ITEM: Lung turned me onto this one. Simply brilliant. Haw did it take this long?? Reminds me of my old Nixon watch. But rad.

ITEM: Titanfall 2 is another game I bought on concept alone, even though I don’t have time to play generally. I haven’t unwrapped it. But they added single player story mode to mech combat both in and out of the mech, AND it’s now on PS4 so I had to. This concept art spread is delightful.

ITEM: This.
Predator…”plunks the deadly alien hunter, who audiences have seen fight in jungles, concrete jungles, frozen wastelands and alien planets, in the harsh environment of … suburbia.”
Also, as if the film needed the extra juice, Olivia Munn was cast as a ‘scientist’. That’s why I show her in glasses, you see.

Also, speaking of the MUNN EFFECT, I was also pre-sold on Office Party, as we talked about when the first trailer came out, but since I laugh EVERY TIME Vance plummets to his probable death, I take it that’s a good sign that ALL THE REST OF THE AWESOME is good. Yet, the best part is once again Kate McKinnon.

ITEM: David Leitch is a rumored replacement for Tim Miller on Deadpool. I love John Wick. It’s interesting though, that it’s equally hard to envision his style applied to Deadpool farce as it was Tim Miller going ‘stylized’ and abandoning the fun parts. Dunno. This article Lung sent me, about Junkie XL leaving the project in solidarity, which I can respect if nothing else.

ITEM: Lastly, I love the concept of an FPS maker FINALLY having the cojones to put a no-respawn mode into one of these games. THAT’s a challenge.
