I don't tend to pay too close attention to toys, but this one really caught my eye.

Apparently Black Panther picked up a Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama. I ... don't see it, but people are making a deal out of it. Felt Dark Knight and Civil War were better and more deserving of a silly plaque and pat on the head.

That's a fairly reasonable feeling to have since both of those movies are significantly better than Black Panther. I'm sure this is going to come off as racist, but this probably has more to do with the skin color of the cast than the quality of the movie. Next year Captain Marvel is going to win all the Oscars for starring a female lead.

I think a bigger part of it was the noise people made over Wonder Woman the year before.

Watched a cam of Aquaman. It's about as average as a movie can get, but it's done well enough to not feel like you were ripped off like most of the other DCEU movies. The "humor" is painfully forced though, and at one point destroys the movie's pacing, bringing it to a screeching halt. Also some irritation when it comes to characterization, but only if you actually read Aquaman in the first place. Probably best to see it a week after premiere, during the day to avoid the crowds.

James Gunn has found some work, producing a movie to postulate "What if Superman were evil?" Which may have been done umpteen times in book format, would still be neat to see as a movie. Here's Brightburn's trailer. Not a bad bit of video, but the best part is apparently plenty of people neither understand what "Free Use" actually is, and don't seem to understand that "parody" isn't limited to just comedy. I especially like the part near the end where the cafeteria is out of chicken nuggets

You nerds probably already knew this, I just learned that The Great Snap killed 50% of all the critters as well. I assumed it only killed intelligent sentient life. So now on top of the whole "Going to be a lot more than 50% after the fires down down" we have cascading ecological failures ensuring extinction for most of the life on Earth and presumably across the universe. This drops Thanos from Chaotic Evil to plain Chaotic Stupid and his big plan, which was never deeper than a stoned freshman saying "Wait, dude... dude... what if like we solved overpopulation by fifty percent, just, like, going away, man..." into something diametrically opposite of his supposed desire and he was too retarded to ever noodle this out on his own.

Wow... Infinity Wars just became a much worse movie in my estimation.

Second trailer for the new Godzilla came out. With that gal who played in Stranger Things.



Seems like this, Rampage, the Kong movie, even the other most recent Godzilla, should fit into some sort of "Monster Universe"... but pretty sure they are all separate.

Edit:
Thanos snapping 50% of all non-sentient life seems... eh?

It's like... it couldn't be a mistake. If he was really controlling it all, with the stones. It's not like the gauntlet was really a monkey paw. It seemed pretty clear what his desire was. Overpopulated, poor, suffering people... "fixed". And I doubt he was thinking in his mind that "Man, would be real helpful for my plan if 50% of all manatees were gone too".

Maybe, I admittedly hadn't looked into it too closely.

That Godzilla movie looks like every Saturday afternoon watching Son of Svenghoolie monster movies condensed into one 2 hour block.

How do you know those manatees won't rise up and become a thorn in Thanos' side if left alone? Huh? Huh?

What about pregnant females and their yet unborn babies? Would there be a bunch of fetuses, sentient creature and not, flopping around? And females becoming suddenly not pregnant?

Edit:
I guess males/other genders too, can't force my humo-normative gender views on other species.

Legendary has acquired the rights to The Toxic Avenger and are planning a big budget remake. If there's a franchise that doesn't need a big budget treatment, it's Toxie.

The Punisher returns to Netflix January, and (most likely) cancelled in February.

The two people in the world who thought everyone Thanos poofed would stay poofed are disappointed as some info about Doctor Strange 2 is being talked about in the headlines.

Extended clips of Fred Savage and Ryan Reynolds banter for the Once Upon a Deadpool movie makes me really hope it has them bickering back and forth while Deadpool is telling him a rehashed version of the movie. And not just the same movie with a few minutes of scenes cut to make it PG-13, and Savage/Reynolds clips made solely for promotional material.

I won't be seeing it in theaters either way, but if it were, I probably would check it out if/when they release it on BluRay. Not that I could see it in theaters if I wanted to. Pretty sure local theaters (or, theater... only one choice in the area) here aren't showing this "limited" screening.

I imagine they'll release a special bundle with both the original and the re-edited movie together. That's probably the only way I'd buy it. The Once Upon A scenes will be on Youtube soon enough anyway. I just wasn't that wild about DP2 that having a dozen copies of it is even a consideration.

Into The Spider-Verse is getting some pretty rave reviews, though. I mean, it's Spider-Man and I'm stupid for Spider-Man so I'll end up seeing it, but I am glad that it sounds like it's actually worth seeing.

Saw Aquaman for reals in a theater with popcorn and everything. It was okay. Better than almost all other DCU films though. Didn't reach the high points of Wonder Woman but also lacked WW's train wreck ending fight. It could be in a double feature with Ant-Man & Wasp without either film upstaging the other.

Should have seen Spider-verse. That movie was wild. Probably the best capeflick of the year.

Eh, wife wanted to see Aquaman and the only Spider-Man I care about is traditional ranch flavored Peter Parker. Plus "animated superhero movie" isn't a draw for me.
