    BLESS The funniest part for me was at the end when Spidey runs into those guys again and is all "We don't have to fight!" Smash-cut to the four of them posing for a sweet picture that he sells to the Bugle!

    Wow, I have been slacking. Spider-man Homecoming: I had reservations about this movie. Having seen it now, it was fun. I still think the second of the Tobey Maguire films was the best Spider-Man movie but still, this one was very good and definitely the best villain of any of the films. The Chipmunk Adventure: Because Nostalgia? Also, The Chippettes singing a song about fucking to a bunch of snakes.

    The Heavy Metal Order tl;dr Heavy Metal ran a crazy clearance sale on their website at the end of June. Said order shipped last week, and only after three emails, a phone call and a PayPal claim. This is super shady. Druillet-Loane Sloane Something Or Other Aside from a weird 90’s LOOK WE CAN USE PHOTOGRAPHY IN COMICS THANKS TO COMPUTERS, it’s bugfuck nuts and completely beautiful. Near as I can tell, it’s about a woman who commits an interstellar train robbery to wake up a religious/resistance leader by giving the sarcophagus he’s buried in a blowjob. Euro as fuck. Milo Manara-Fatal Rendezvous Manara draws a lot of rape. Like every other “rape story, but with a twist”, the female character comes to enjoy it and there’s information at the end not included in the extortion of her body. It’s difficult to complain when it’s $2, but still left a bad taste in my mouth. Juan Giménez and Roberto Del Prado-Apocalypse Sr. Giménez elevates the story about an American Vietnam vet that sees a child blow up helicopters Akira-style and meets that person again, decades later, manipulated by Vietnamese gangsters. Sr. Giménez’s watercolors remain stunning. The story’s okay, maybe it lost something in translation, idk. Juan Giménez-Overload Juan Giménez art book. Literal stunner for the art. Multiple embarrassing misspellings. At least one unclosed parentheses I caught, there might be one more. But look. Sr. Giménez’s work carries weight, and not merely in the breasts of his female characters. His Tarot deck is fucking incredible, from The Empress to Justice to Chariot, just goddamn, Juan Giménez. Please, Humanoids, find a way to expand on this for a re-release! I’ll even copy edit it for you! For free!

    They're 2 of the films being covered, but I have seen Deliverance before. Rounding out the Triforce of Reynolds is The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

    Delivrance and Smokey and the Bandit are the others?
  10. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Speak for yourself - to the best of my knowledge I have sired no offspring, and I only watched 8 films as a child, none of which fit that description. On topic: by the time we start recording this month's HAA, I will have seen 4 Burt Reynolds movies for the first time - 2 for the podcast, and then both Cannonball Run (theatrical) movies. That Dom Deluise was a delightful film presence!

    I think we've all seen enough shitty family friendly pablum movies to know that they both got the dog in the end, because they found themselves and realized they truly loved each other.
  12. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Yes yes yes, but more importantly, who got the dog?
  13. Every comic you've read in 2017

    Totally Awesome Hulk #22: Solid as always. Amazing Spider-Man #30 and #31 (2015): So-So. I don't think Stuart Immonen is a good enough artist to regulate an A-List title like this. Superman #29 (2016): Pretty decent issue.

    Ooku: The Inner Chambers v1: Alt history of Japan where 75% of the male population dies due to a disease, and women take over the public roles, and men are the ones cloistered and sheltered. Mostly focuses on the harem of men who serve the female Shogun, and all the tiny politics therein. The character I thought was going to be our main character only appears to have been around for one volume, so I'm kind of interested to see how this will play out in the long run. And there's only minimal instances of Fumi Yoshinaga dude character sameface! The main thing hindering this is the damn translations; they chose to go with thee/thou/borderline Shakespearian parody for a lot of the dialogue, and it really quickly grates. Land of the Lustrous v1: This and Steven Universe came out at the same time (though the translation is just being released now Stateside), and man, Kodansha should probably be real careful about using the "if you like Steven Universe, you'll love this!" marketing tag, because while that statement is very accurate, Cartoon Network could prooobably sue for copyright infringement if they looked too close. That said, I'm very interested to see how this distinguishes itself down the way. Lone Sloane: Chaos: It took them a month and a half, but the Heavy Metal order we placed during their warehouse sale finally fucking showed up! The art on this is gorgeous and absolutely nuts. No clue what's going on storywise, but I get the sense that this is towards the end of a series? There's a note in front about a movie, or something. Just look at the goddamn pretty artwork and let it happen. Juan Gimenez: Overlord: Heavy Metal has a Juan Gimenez artbook. It's goddamn gorgeous. Fatal Rendevous: A Manara story with lots of rape and a wife who's in over her head because of her idiot husband. Really weird, not my favorite of his.

  16. DuckTales

    I was surprised how much I really enjoyed this. I watched Ducktales as a kid like most of us, but I don't remember much of it. But the voice acting, writing and animation all made this one solid. David Tennant, on top of everything, is a terrific voice actor. I went through the whole pilot constantly knowing it was him, but that was mainly due to finishing Broadchurch where he used his natural Scottish accent. Now and then I'd put that out of my mind and enjoy the character. I love Kate Micucci as well, and she's great as Webby.
  17. DuckTales

    I caught St. Canard, because of course I did, but missed the other two. Nice.

    Who Gets the Dog?: I love my children, but sometimes their movie choices make me want to put a gun in my mouth. Death Line: review forthcoming. Features: 86 Shorts: 29 Documentaries: 8 Rewatches: 1
  19. DuckTales

    I've watched the pilot once or twice (Disney XD put it up for free on their YouTube and Amazon also has it for free right now) and I really enjoy it. I was worried that it wouldn't feel enough like DuckTales but fuck, no, this really feels like the show that I loved as a kid. Is is the same show? No. The fact that Donald is a regualr character, that there is an effort to distinguish Huey, Dewey, and Louie, that Webby is not The Load/cute little girl? So appreciated. I also like the little easter eggs. In the pilot episode, we have references to Spoonerville (Goof Troop), St. Canard (Darkwing Duck), and Cape Suzette (Tail Spin). It's the kind of thing that makes me wonder if Disney is playing the long game and planning updates of the other Disney Afternoon shows. I know Darkwing Duck is supposed to show up Season 1 so who knows?
  20. What You've Read 2017

    A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Madeline L'Engle: A bit disjointed, but again, another logical outgrowth of the series trajectory to this point. This one focuses a bit more on Charles Wallace and his special abilities, but Meg, a bit older and pregnant, still holds a strong part in the story. Have to say, the idea of a kid time traveling with his unicorn to save the world from a mad dictator threatening the world with nuclear destruction and changing subtle things in the past and making it so that the guy's been a peace lover the whole time is really appealing in light of current events.

  21. Saw Batman and Harley last night. It is straight comedy all the way through and more joke crash than land. Although there are two gags near the end that are laugh out loud funny.
  22. Episode 971

    Nearly 40 years ago, Nicholas Hammond debuted as a certain wall-crawler in the live-action television program The Amazing Spider-Man. Today, Dan and Mike discuss the first feature-length episode, but they also diverge into Spider-Man: Homecoming and the oddity that is the Rocky franchise. [ 1:06:20 || 34.9 MB ]

    I'm about six weeks behind or so, but these Lucha Underground hype videos for Rey/Mundo are pure awesome.

    *Bathes in American ignorance* But that's great! I really really like her as an actress, and when watching Broadchurch season 2 my brother suggested she might've been a cooler pick for the next Doctor over Jodie Whitaker.
  25. Episode 520

    Welcome to the first post-Europe podcast for Dread Media. It's been at least six weeks since Desmond has recorded a podcast, even though it's only been a week since the last Dread Media. Desmond kicks off the show by running down the Europe trip and then telling a story about the time last night his little dog fought a cougar. And not a fun cougar. A real one. Then, having enough with reality, the show veers into science fiction as Desmond interviews authors David Agranoff and Edward R Morris about their collaborative epic, dirty sci-fi novel out now from Grand Mal Press: Flesh Trade. The guys discuss their influences and their process for collaborating, as well as other projects in an hour-long interview. Then, keeping the sci-fi going, Rich the Monster Movie Kid tells us his thoughts about Luc Besson's return to the genre in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Some cosmic tunes for you: "Enslaver" by Ram, "Slave New World" by Sepultura, "Space Oddity" by David Bowie, and "Space Police" by Edguy. [ 1:48:10 || 52.1 MB ]
