  3. Superman IV: The Quest for Peace: Superman tells the nations of the world, "No more bombs" and then there are no more bombs. Superman uses the roofie kiss, burns Lois Lane's roast, and dates two women at once. True, Superman III Superman does more dickish things but those are under the influence. This is much more hardcore Superman is a Dick territory to me. The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe: The 70s animated version. Voice acting is hammy, the animation is choppy, yet it will always hit a nostalgia cord for me! Showgirls: My annual viewing. Watched it with friends this year so good for me. Films: 77 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 2
  4. It's also interesting as a post-Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon film. There's fucking wire work in one of the fights between Freddy and Jason. And the moment of Freddy leaping out of Crystal Lake awash in red light is about as beautiful as anything got in the horror genre in the 00s.
  5. FVJ is pure fan service awesomeness wire-to-wire. I love that flick.
  6. Freddy vs. Jason: this is crazy cartoony and a hell of a lot of fun. It's a Friday movie with a Nightmare sense of humour and it works for the most part. Some regrettably very 2003 CGI here. I know a lot of people in this movie as it was almost entirely filmed within 10 minutes of where I grew up, but I noticed Evangeline Lilly as an extra at the high school for the first time. Yes, I knew her. Fucking hell. Always ridiculously hot and didn't really seem to know it. How I never recognized her in this film before is beyond me. Features: 51 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 4
  7. I'd definitely love to cover Logan at some point, yeah.
  8. Perpetually behind on NXT UK. I mostly enjoy the shows, but every time I hear that damn Gallus theme I get so damn sleepy.

    Episode 616

    This week on Dread Media, we take a look at a slate of 2019 horror films. First up, Desmond goes solo on a review of Us (and offers a giveaway of said film). Then, Tom Deja reviews the brand new Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Finally, Tom and Des team up on a review of The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot. Songs included: "Down the Rabbit Hole" by Michael Abels, "I Got 5 On It (Tethered mix from Us feat. Michael Marshall)" by Luniz, "Godzilla (feat. Serj Tankian)" by Bear McCreary, "Bigfoot" by The Worth, and "Them and Us" by Bad Religion. [ 1:10:43 || 34.2 MB ]
  11. Due to it being on constant rotation on local TV, I have seen this movie dozens upon dozens of times. It never gets old.
  12. Bad News Bears: Boy, this was a blast from the past. I love how pure thesis. It doesn't give a fuck about anything outside the baseball team. There's a machination at the league level to get this team out of there, but the film doesn't give a fuck. There's a former love story with a player's mom, but the film doesn't give a fuck. It's just about alcoholic Walter Matthau coaching a bunch of nerds, Oscar Winner Tatum O'Neal and young Rorshach even though he's not really interested. Loved it. Boys did too. It actually took me to the credits to realize it was Jackie Earl Haley. I'd completely forgotten. So I showed the boys the "You're locked in here with me" scene from Watchmen. I may have to watch that with them next. Always Be My Maybe: this was really fun. It's pretty standard romantic comedy until Keanu Reeves shows up and it kicks into wildly hysterical comedy territory. He's a treasure. Randall Park is a legitimate movie star too. Features: 50 Shorts: 15 Documentaries: 5 Rewatches: 4
  13. Re-watched "Wake The Dead" from JLU. Two observations: The ending is one of the saddest I have seen. Superman is extremely reckless in the opening minutes of the fight. Great episode.
  14. I'm of the opinion that the first X-Men film is the best, so I'm down.
  15. X-Men was my first fandom so yeah, count me in!
  16. I'd be interested. Not seen the early movies for ages or the latest one yet, but the X-Men comics were the first ones I read consistently and I've seen most if not every episode of the 90s and early 2000s cartoons. I even had the DK X-Men encyclopedia at one point. Not sure if I'm up for full synopsis duties, given that I've only done it once and I took way too long.
  17. I'm interested, although we do still need to plan our other project.
  18. Now that Dark Phoenix has capped off the Fox-led X-Men franchise*, I'd like to cover all 12 movies on The Show. Who would like to join me? *I don't think we'll ever see New Mutants. And if it does come out, then we add one more to the list.
  19. Star Trek III: The Search for Spock A solid follow-up that picks up immediately after the last one left off with zero time skipped. Like with Wrath of Khan, the plot feels lesser than it is. Both films have a plot, but they almost feel invisible to the character conflicts. Not a criticism, just an observation. Shatner gave another solid performance full of emotion, and the support players had way more to do than I've seen them in probably ever. This made the movie really heartfelt, with the theme of friendship making all of the crazy BS worthwhile. The ending got me, not gonna lie. The new actress for Saviuk wasn't terrific, but she was way more Vulcan-like than Kirstie Alley, so I liked her better.
  20. Really slowed down on my comics reading lately. Locke & Key vol 1 Welcome to Lovecraft: wanted to do a reread of this for a while until I get to the new stuff I haven't read yet. A very solid little weird supernatural horror comic. Beauty and the Beast: a late 80s graphic novel featuring the amazing art of Jordi Bernet. Definite influence on Sin City here. It's undeniable. Bone Parish #1: I don't remember much from this read-through, to be honest. So, I think I'll drop it. Lots of stuff to catch up on. Brittania Lost Eagles of Rome #1: not lighting me on fire. I'm out. Brothers Dracul #4: still great. Good stuff. DC's Beach Blanket Bad Guys Summer Special #1: I almost skipped this. But how often have you read an anthology comic where every story is good? Fucking rare. This might be the best one shot of the year. Lots of different styles of story here. All are interesting. Comics: 115 Trades: 11 Graphic Novels: 7 Omnibus: 3
  21. So, I think it is an adaptation of the book, but on further thought, it only really makes sense to incorporate elements of the Kubrick film into the film version of the book. Otherwise, it's a pretty intensely missed opportunity. Just visually, I mean. And the staggering amount of people who have seen The Shining versus those who have read it would probably agree. I'm willing to bet there's very little if anything that is rehashed from Kurbick's film beyond what was shown in the trailer. I could be wrong though.
  22. I haven't read it either, tbh. But either way: the film looks extremely good.
  23. Silver Surfer: Black #1: The writing was okay but the art was super cool Spider-Man: Life Story #4: I've loved every issue of this mini and #4 was no exception, especially as a fan of the Clone Saga. THIS SERIES MAN Single Issues: 202 Trade Paperbacks: 7
  24. No, primarily because you need to establish the Shi'ar empire first. And having Jean Grey destroy an entire planet and murder billions of sentient beings would not fly in a movie. I'm sure that's why... And the Hellfire Club thing was very important to the story. Like @Donomark said, it would have to be more than one movie.
  25. I'm reminded of Mary Jane Watson getting cancer in Spider-Man: Reign.
  26. Looks like maybe they're reconciling Danny's past with the events of the film, but then just adapting the novel. I'm not sure how much the book references The Shining as I haven't read it yet.
