Be Brave – Robots Root 24 September 2018

How to Draw with Tenacious D is killing me. “a little yeller.” “I don’t know what thats called, but it sure does tell a story.” Dying. NSFW. As usual, their viral marketing may be even better than the product (post-Apocalypto)… I will forever feel a compulsion to paint using a Sharpie as a brush.

 

Meanwhile, THIS:

 

  • I do kinda like this anime trailer treatment for the Star War. The ship designs feel jarring because they are very…western… but the character models and Ben Kenobi’s look and voice particularly, really work. Plus I’ve always said Chewie needed a prominent mustache.
  • RIP Sgt. Apone.

  • I can’t, for whatever reason, stop mulling over the concept for a Jon Hamm Batman. I want it. A LOT. I’ve often struggled by how much I didn’t vibe the Bruce Wayne as Batman look. I loved Nolan’s stuff, but it wasn’t the best Batman look, and Bale wasn’t the most Wayne Wayne. The project worked regardless. But thinking of my younger self’s mental image of what it should be… Batfleck (in costume) was close, even without the eye slits… but Hamm works for me as Wayne. Wayne in the bat suit, if that makes sense.

  • I can’t wait for this. I want it to be awesome. Funny that it’s going to be one of those seasons where John C O’Reilly is in bowler hats TWICE (this and the Laurel and Hardy biofilm)… one of THOSE seasons.

  • This piece came from an artist in one of my FB groups, and I love it 33,000 times. You may have to have grown up near, or beyond, the border to understand.

  • I dig these Sideshow ‘reimaginings’ projects. This makes for a damn cool and less bipedal Alien, (so many joints)… but Jonesy remains the highlight.
  • Thats not just Soundwave… it’s the ORIGINAL Soundwave, looks like.
  • Rope hands! That’s a power I need to add to the Posthuman game…

  • I think this was a pretty nuanced argument in favor of Last Jedi… touching on some points I hadn’t really formalized in my own mind. I liked it a lot, so i’m not one of the detractors… but Pat notes ways in which the film delivers on things that I think, big picture, really benefit the franchise.
  • THIS. “By 2022, science says we will have achieved Joker singularity: a Joker movie that reboots itself during the movie”
  • Brie Larson continues to troll those people that told her to smile more. It isn’t old yet.
  • This is only interesting because Sofia Boutella as any supers anyone gets my vote.
  • Chloe Zhao has been tapped to direct Eternals… we were just talking about Ruin on the podcast…

Finally, a new K-hole I didn’t know existed until now, and I’m obsessed: Hot Wheels restoration!

Im Arresting You Thats What Im Doing – Robots Root 20 September 2017

I’m somewhat alarmed to tell you that I feel strongly compelled to buy this bottle even though I fear soul crushing debt.

Welp, in other news, here’s some Robot Rootery:

  • How Wonder Woman should have ended? Right here. And a hankering for an Honest Trailer, perhaps? HERE.
  • This Sideshow speculative Nomadic Obi Wan is all sorts of amazing and I want this movie now. This right here. All of it.
  • You may have heard that Richard Donner’s original goal for Superman was to have the majority of Superman I and II as a single film. This isn’t that, quite, but here is a Blu-Ray release of the longform version of Superman I that was originally broadcast over two nights. I can’t wait. How interesting! It’s like an alternate reality version of the film.
  • A brief history of the famously awkward Star Trek ‘double punch’ maneuver.
  • I’m kind of enjoying this examination of Tragic Photoshop on Alicia Vikander’s spine. I mean, I enjoy examining her spine in general. But also, bad photoshop. Speaking of, here’s the whole trailer.
  • So I’m thinking about Avengers 3 and 4. Loose theory: Avengers 3 (Infinity War) will involve Thanos cleaning up, brutally killing everyone. Cap gets ahold of the time gem, travels back… then we have Captain Marvel movie, set in 90s. Perhaps time travel events in Avengers 3 lead to environment where Cap Marvel now exists. Reset MCU. Then forward to Avengers 4 where we have traveled through different timelines, and are now defeating Thanos with a new hybrid team of multidimensional Avengers? This would explain why Crossbones may be back (alternate universe or time travel) and would trade heavily on the Avengers Forever stuff from years ago, swapping out Thanos for Kang.
  • Trailer round-up; This collection of trailers includes the following: gratuitous overuse of the choppy percussion coinciding with cut scenes, mini-teaser trailers preceding the actual trailers, oversharing, and surprisingly, two uses of big gun 80’s metal that I hope make it into the respective projects and not just the trailers.
    • New Jumanji stuff, which I told myself I wouldn’t watch, but did, and still loved.
    • New full Punisher trailer. At this point his chestplate looks less bustier-like, which is good, but I still struggle with his douche haircut. Release date remains randomly obscured, because Netflix.
    • Donnie Yen’s HK 70s epic, Chasing the Dragon
    • Full Tomb Raider trailer (I really enjoy a female, modern take on Indiana Jones, but it’s a bit heavy on the daddy stuff)
  • MA.K is being adapted by the producer of IT. Giant robots, so I’m in.
  • This is awesome: Tweedie Waititi has commissioned and produced a Maori-language version of Moana and held free screenings, to encourage the dwindling native-tongue speaking Maori population to re-engage with their culture in NZ.
  • And speaking of the Waititis, Taika is apparently looking at taking on Akira. I mean, CAN YOU IMAGINE. So rad.
  • I don’t know why this took me by surprise, given Schwarzenegger and Cameron have been talking up another Terminator project, but now apparently Linda Hamilton is in on it. Surprising to me, I guess, given her relationship collapse with Cameron…
  • Watchmen has begun production for HBO… given how much room that story wants to breathe, and HBO’s track record for genre projects the last several years, I’m optimistic.

One more thing:

I don’t know of this is legit…. but it is definitely L E G I T if you feel me.

 

Also: Dig on Bosslogic’s speculative Joker via Jackie Earl Haley..

Finally, an update on the TRDL Art Jam:

 

Our man Tulio will be taking on the duties of posting the TRDL Art Jam subjects each month, to our FB and dA groups… starting in October. I needed to focus on the TRDL Sourcebook production, so this is a huge help.
