Another DC Universe film comes out tomorrow: Constantine, City of Demons
Is it a movie or a series? IMDB says five episodes, but the cover says movie. I mean, it's Matt Ryan so ultimately irrelevant and it'll be added to my collection.

Turns out it was a CW Seed online series, being released as a movie. Set in the Justice League Dark universe. Looks like it was 5 episodes about 7 minutes long each. The movie is those 5 episodes, plus some extra. Internet says it is a similar situation to the Vixen movie (which... I did not follow). But doesn't look to be longer than about an hour or so.

Edit:
Box says 90 minutes. Guess a lot more was added than just 5x7min episodes.

Edit2:
Solid movie. A couple good lines "Who the hell do you think I am? Benedict Bloody Cumberbatch?, a significant amount of gore. Though the pacing in the middle was rushed. Ancient Aztec Death-God is used to kill all the demons without even introducing them. Largely unimportant to the overall arc, but still a bit disappointing. Ended well though. Worth a watch.



Flash? 10 minutes in and Nora is creeping me out. I've only seen her actress in one thing that I know of. And it was Black Sails. And I haven't heard her talk in anything but that. This high pitched girly voice may be her real voice(dunno)? But it feels so fake, done to make a 34 year old sound like a little girl.

Also: Not sure if this was posted yet or not.
Harvey Birdman: Attorney General

A special, airing this weekend. Unfortunately it doesn't sound like it's a whole new series/season. Just a one time thing.

More Edit:
Read this morning about the possibility of James Gunn moving on to DC after Disney didn't care for his little boy jokes. Suicide Squad 2. Seems the perfect place for DC to try his style of writing and directing. Though I'm not sure how much it would improve the DCU live action film venture as a whole.

Suicide Squad 2 is probably the right place in DC for Gunn to go, seeing as how the first movie was just an Earth-bound GoTG1 anyway. Dave Bautista is already tweeting about wanting to join, which is a really great example of loyalty. He'd make a pretty neat Bane.

Ralph was great in the Flash season premiere, but ultimately irrelevant to the goings-on. He really should be shifted over to Legends of Tomorrow. As far as the rest of the episode, pretty standard "Allen ruins the timeline" introduction. The Henshin-a-Go-Go with the ring outfit was amusing, but that cowl still looks funny huge. I think it's to protect his hair so they don't have to keep messing with it between scenes? Or he's going to time travel and mess with Fred Flintstone.

Now, Black Lightning? That was a premiere worth watching. Definitely the VIP of the CW cape shows. Smiley: thumbsup Hope they never crossover with the rest, though one of the daughters will probably find her way onto the Waverider eventually.

Ruby Rose (and a lot of photoshop) as Batwoman.

Pet Cemetery trailer. I don't like cats, and the trailer certainly doesn't change my opinion of them, which obviously is the point. I like Lithgow, but he's no Herman Munster. I like the trailer. The creepy kids are a nice touch.


Apparently Venom did well enough that there's talk that Morbius will start filming soon, and rumor is that Kraven will be loosely based on "Kraven's Last Hunt," which both without Spider-Man and it being a first movie it's basically like starting your franchise with Superman Dies and without Doomsday.

I caught up on Black Lightning. I'm not as interested in the father/daughter relationship and family drama side of things. Attack on the Albino at the end was more interesting. I thought that his female bodyguard / henchmen would turn out to be not dead after though. Some sort of healing meta. Kind of dull if they just drop her like that.

Haven't finished Gifted.

I did watch South Park, because it's only 20 minutes or so. Mr Hanky blamed Ambien for racist/homophobic tweets.

That was amusing all of one time, but true to form South Park just kind drove that joke into the ground.

Aladdin teaser. Familiar chords, Agrabah, and what I can only assume is Iago. No sign of Will Smith, which is probably the teaser's most saving grace.

I'm not sure how I feel about Fresh Prince Genie. But I guess the issue is the voice I'm hearing in my head. Even the animated TV series, which I enjoyed as a kid, I recall the voice actor sounding close enough to Williams. Like the actor who does Po in the Kung Fu Panda series who does a good Jack Black.

I got around to seeing Venom. It wasn't bad, but it felt like a very rushed origin story in the last half. And the CGI for the last fight felt like I was watching a Tool stop-motion animation music video.

The Hellboy trailer leaked the other day, and it's not bad. A lot of people complaining about it being humorous, but that's to be expected.

The only thing I watched last night was the Harvey Birdman special. And it was... dull. It was just too "word for word" satire. Funny enough but they didn't even try to make it clever. Nothing subtle at all about it.

I took my parents and grandmother out to dinner last night, my mom says "David Tennant has a comedy on HBO tonight!". In my mind I'm thinking "Tennant does stand-up?" Only to find out that David Tennant and Jennifer Garner have a comedy show that started last night on HBO called "Camping". I pressed Record just cause Tennant. I haven't watched it, but the trailer didn't look all that interesting. Who knows, maybe the two will work together. But they are definitely not what comes to mind when I think "Half hour comedy series on HBO".

Edit:
Camping is... Bad. Tennant can't save it. Tennant and Garner are a middle-aged, middle class, apparently liberal couple, she a post-surgery-induced-menopausal annoyance and he a spineless loser. There was not much if anything actually comedic about the whole thing in the "laughing" sense. I guess if you want to see a new-aged healer hippy Juliette Lewis nude for a few seconds you could watch the last minute of the pilot.

I was marathoning Kidding, with Jim Carey as a Mister Roger-esque character whose life is falling apart around him and saw a commercial for Camping. It didn't seem interesting so I was waiting for you before checking it out, and that settles that. Kidding though is mildly amusing, though I don't feel the urge to watch it live as it airs weekly.

I watched Constantine: The Legend Continues that aired after Arrow, which I didn't watch yet, and I've got to say it was edgy. As. Fukc. Which, for Constantine is the correct way. I never liked how much of a weenie they made him taking him from Dark Horse into the main DC books. I would have preferred live action simply because I really liked Matt Ryan in the role, but I'll take what I can get.

Legend Continues was what they called the City of Demons movie that came out last week when they aired it on TV, right? Was it the whole 90 minutes, or just the CW Seed parts? Part of me can't see CW showing the City of Demons movie full uncensored on TV.

I didn't record though. I knew it was airing but had heard it was just the movie, so I didn't look into it.

Edit:
More googling. So it says the CD Seed version was a bunch of short episodes. Either some on CW Seed with some more planned that got put into the movie, or all on CW Seed (That part wasn't clear). The CW TV "Legend Continues" version is all of that. With the "City of Demons" movie being that plus some 20 minutes of extra scenes not included.



More on Camping:
"Jokes" included:

"Guns are evil, why would we have a BB Gun in our camp to protect us from bears?" *Wakes up to noise in middle of night* *Shoots wildly into the camp in the darkness afraid of bears with BB Gun* *Shoots friend who is having sex*

Butch lesbian camp owner hitting on Garner.

Juilette Lewis being super annoying hippy girl.

Garner being left out of the goings on in her supposed "friends" lives. Finding out things she thinks are new that everyone already knew weeks ahead of her.

And google says there was another series with the same name... and same plot... different actors... back in 2016. Seems this is a situation like The Office where somewhere in the UK it's done first. IMDB gives favorable ratings to the 2016 listing.

Upon further research, yeah it was the first part of City of Demons. Kind of annoying they changed the name.
