    Episode 508
    This week, we begin the show with a giveaway and a tribute to a rockstar. Then Megan and our Dutch daughter joins me for a review of Jordan Peele's debut film Get Out. I mean, you need to know what three white people on a podcast have to think about that one, right? Also, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews The Devil's Candy. Finally, I go solo on a review of Walerian Borowczyk's arthouse sleazefest, The Beast. Also, tunes: "Get the Fuck Outta Dodge" by Public Enemy, "Hypnotize" by System of A Down, "The Devil in I" by Slipknot, "The Beast and the Harlot" by Avenged Sevenfold, and "4th of July" by Soundgarden.

    These posters are the best thing Nathan Fillion's ever done.

    Wolveirne: Snikt #1-5: Wolverine is pulled to 2058 to fight an adamantium-encased living virus that has killed untold millions, if not billions. It's Days of Future Past as seen through a manga filter, and I liked it. If you're into manga styles and sensibilities, you'll enjoy this. If not, quite the opposite. As much as I enjoyed it, though, it took no more than 20 minutes to read all five issues, thanks to limited dialogue. And it only took that long because the third issue slowed down to give the backstory. This is a quick, mindless read, and though it shows Wolverine as a Manga-ish character, he's still the best there is at what he does.

    Trinity #8: A Superman Reborn followup, in which Superman tells Wonder Woman and Batman about the recent history-reshaping events. As a standalone issue it won't work for most people, but as a followup to one story and a laying-the-groundwork issue for a forthcoming story it works well.
    Trinity #9: The trio find themselves transported to The Watchtower, where an alien presence has begun a hostile takeover. While it is a generic sci-fi plot, Francis Manapul manages to get in some characterization for Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman.

     Freaky Fridays ,a blog that looks at bad paperback thrillers, recently posted about "The Glow." Which talks about the dangers of jogging, not heatstroke or dehydration but of geriatric cults which drain the blood of younger people. This is the rare entry that had a movie adaptation.

    The end of NXT tonight fucking broke my heart. This Gargano/Ciampa feud is going to be the most emotionally invested I get in a feud in like 10 years.

    The Martian: After the week I've had at work, I needed something light. So, I picked this. It's still one of two Ridley Scott movies I even like, so hey.

    The Wild Storm #4: It's hard to keep track of who's on which side and what goal(s) each side is aiming for, but I'm still enjoying the book.
    Super Sons #4: This book. Oh my god, this book. It is the best Superman and the best Batman comic on the market, and there are really good Superman and Batman comics out right now. It's fun, energetic, exciting, and sound exactly like bickering kids should sound.

    That looked great. The effects were incredible, and it really stood out as something different than what's come before.

    The Last Quarter Of Bad Company: A tacked on existential sequel that actually ends with the character literally becoming what he hates and murders. It's still good, if it's a radically different flavor from what preceded it.

    Batman #23: A fun, cryptic one-off featuring Swamp Thing. Quite good.

    Because I'm less invested in the Joker, Harley, and Killer Croc than I am in Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Lex Luthor. Plus Deadshot had a nice rapport with Flag. Still, it has many of things wrong with it and I don't plan to see it again.

    How?
  14. You Know Who added a post in a topic Every Film You've Watched in 2017   

    Not good enough. That said, I actually didn't hate it.
  15. Koete added a post in a topic Venom   

    Love Hardy, but Venom is pontless without Spider-Man and Fleischer is a hack. 
  16. The Master added a post in a topic Venom   

    If they did Agent Venom, with Hardy playing Army veteran Flash Thompson, it could work without Spider-Man. Otherwise, yeah, it's iffy.

    The Lost City of Z: Saw this with Stella, this was a solid period piece of a film. Very inspired casting choices in Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland. Highly recommended. 
  18. Donomark added a post in a topic Venom   

    Unexpected but dang cool casting. This movie still won't work without Spider-Man, but that's a great step foot forward.
  19. Donomark added a post in a topic Wonder Woman   

    We've been here before with the last two. I'm hopeful and optimistic, but not naive.

    Suicide Squad: Killer Croc doesn't throw a single rock at anyone.

    Tom Hardy is Venom
    Directed by the guy who's been dining off of Zombieland his entire career. Due out in October next year.

    Midnight Special is an amazing film in which Dunst is amazing.
    And I am in no way recommending this on the basis it's the only Kirsten Dunst film I have seen.

  25. Dan added a post in a topic RIP Chris Cornell   

    According to his widow, Cornell told her over the phone that he thought he had overdone it with the antidepressants and taken a couple of Ativan too many that night.
    That explains a lot.
    Ativan isn't an antidepressant, it's a sedative used as antianxiety medication. As a person with depression and anxiety issues, I have a prescription for both, and even when I'm having a depressive episode, at a time when I am making terrible decisions, I know enough that Ativan is the absolute last thing I should be putting in my system, as it's notorious for increasing the likelihood of suicidal behavior. Unfortunately, it's not unheard of for this to happen.
