They’ll Use Your Bones for Tools – 31 October 2018

In honor of Halloween, here’s a link to the original War of the Worlds broadcast, not to be confused with the two later rebroadcasts within the next 15 years, or any War of the Worlds film or TV projects since. Though, because I am a defender of the movie, I’m using a Tom Cruise War of the Worlds header image because damn, they looked rad. And sounded radder. The rising of the inexplicably buried walker out of a New Jersey intersection is still one of my favorite filmed sequences in the modern era.

 

Meanwhile, within your treat pail, find these thus:

  • In a somewhat surprise reveal, the Game of Thrones prequel will include and likely feature Naomi Watts. Nice catch!
  • In an optimistic bit of rumor, apparently maybe supposedly Marvel is cooking up a Falcon/Bucky miniseries for the streaming service. That’s a hot one. Their dynamic in Winter Soldier was excellent. Now, allow me to opine: I may be just pushing my own wish fulfillment here, but I suspect Bucky will take the Cap mantle, and this show might be used to bridge or flesh out that transition. Meanwhile, Vision might have a major role in the Scarlett Witch series. I mean, he SHOULD. And meanwhile meanwhile, the rumored Hawkeye project might be a series and include Clint training Kate Bishop. If it followed the story beats and tonal style of the early comic issues, that would lead to one very welcome thing: live action PLESS PLESS!
  • In Mediocre Cosplay News, here’s more pics of the awkward Doom Patrol people with the awkward Titans people. How bad does this project need to be when the promo material is this amateur? I’m weirded out. And, related: here’s Henry Cavill’s costume/makeup tests for Witcher, in which he looks like he wore the black Superman suit we never got to see, but added a Halloween Store wig, and then tried to use the SMOLDER ability from Jumanji.
  • I can’t recall any project like this before: the PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 is to include not ONLY that surreal Princess Bride intro, but a sizable amount of different footage and story beats. It’s like multiversal and stuff.
  • I enjoyed reading this fan theory about Nick Fury knowing the future and setting things up based on Dr. Strange going back in time and warning him, though reading this rambling treatise (sort of an Emporer’s Shanghai Noodles of MCU theories) it’s easy to see how if they weren’t VERY careful we’d have another well-fucked time paradox problem.
  • I keep forgetting to post this youtube video on building Daredevil’s billyclubs… I think Lung found it initially… the thing is, it reminds me that on the show I feel like it’s always been standalone clubs, not connected by wire? Am I misremembering? Because I LOVE when they are connected. Though not when Jimmy Palmiotti draws it and the wire is 333′ of silly string. Editorial over.

 

Finally, I leave you with this: Bram Stoker’s original defacement of his library source material when writing Dracula. How awesome.

The Red Right Hand – 16 May 2016

This is amazing. Seussified mashup of Nic Cave lyrical imagery from one of his best tracks. Dying…

Glen Brogan aka Albinoraven is an artist I follow on IG. I love this poster design, for a few obvious reasons.

I know TMNT2 will be garbage, but I still like the Krang design. I like the armored form more, but that there tolly looks like comics Krang.

Dig this Lego Bow and Arrow Zoe made. Note the little tile with musical notes on it. She says if you’re struck you have to sing long songs for eternity. Eternity was my word.

That Michael B Jordan would join Black Panther is not surprising, given his relationship with the director… what WILL be interesting is: what character? You don’t waste Jordan on a throwaway villain. I don’t know enough about Black Panther continuity.

Word on the street, and by street, I mean carefully orchestrated rumor buzz, is that the X-Files crew is close to sorting out a way to do another season. Just imagine, this time more episodes less crushed together with less hot mess and more fun! Maybe?

I’m slowly working my way through the Prequels with the kids. I still have many issues with them, and not just plot, dialogue, acting, direction, sound FX… I run hot and cold on the art direction. I can’t fathom the choice to put uninteresting Droid armies up against uninteresting other armies on a grassy field in broad daylight. There are many vehicle designs I dislike. BUT. One thing that continues to stand out is how much I love the the imagery associated with the elected monarchy (?) of Naboo. The buildings, clustered over waterfalls, the beautiful clothes, the neat hair, the tall civic building interiors… even the chromy starships. So, credit where its due.

Well, Gareth Edwards just dumped Godzilla 2… which doesn’t bode well. Supposedly amicable, supposedly wants to focus on Rogue One and then his smaller projects, all of which I can dig. But his direction, and DP choice, sort of made Godzilla work for me in the first place. I need to re-watch it, while not on a plane to Singapore with 10 rums in me.

Supposedly Snoke is not the reincarnated Plagueis, is this producer tweet is to be believed. I don’t needhim to be related to any other character, frankly, but some in the fan community will be frustrated. So many hours of fan theorizing, in the dumps! UNLESS, it’s another bait and switch. Perhaps Plagueis was a reincarnation of SNOKE, so it’s an artful dodge! But it isn’t.

Rian Gonzales is a wonderful watercolorist. I’ve been following her work for some time. I like that her pieces are playful, pretty and not particularly suggestive, but at the same time, spicy. You bring your own spice! As someone who has done a fair amount of 000 brush work over the years, I’m always interested in micro-painting. This is very impressive stuff.

This is the SHIT. I have never wanted to be Jaws for Halloween, but the integrated scuba tank and hand, even if the scales are screwy, sell it for me. Wow.
