    Every Film You've Watched in 2019

    Rocky III is, for me, the epitome of "you're flicking through the channels on Sunday afternoon and this comes on and you immediately put the remote down" movies. Rocky is a tremendous film, and Rocky IV is probably the greatest slice of 80s cheese you will ever be ridiculously entertained by, but Rocky III is a really solid movie that sucks you in almost entirely on the strength of Mr. T's performance.

    Everything DC

    So it turns out that if you combine Star Wars and Lord of the Rings and Raiders of the Lost Ark and H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Rice Burroughs and slather a huge coat of Marvel all over everything, you get Aquaman, the biggest, noisiest, gloriously dumbest movie I've seen in years, and it was an absolute blast.

    Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

    This might honestly have been the best movie I've seen all year. Yeah, it pushed the "I like Spidey" buttons, and the script was funny and clever, but as someone who pays way more attention to animation than most people, this was one of the most original pieces of animated work I've ever seen. And HOLY SHIT, the post-credits. I'm still in the middle of "Yes, finally, they bring HIM in" when he winds up... where he winds up.

    SPOILERS: Elsewords

    I can't imagine that Arrow's going to be around too much longer; I assume the CW needs another "I can't believe its not Batman" show in the pipeline.

    SPOILERS: Elsewords

    It wasn't just the theme song; that was the Kent Farm set, wasn't it? Is Hoechlin supposed to be grownup Tom Welling?

    The fact that the Skrulls are in Captain Marvel makes me think they have some kind of pathway in mind.

    The Doctor Who thread

    Yeah, this has been making the rounds for a week or so now. We have yet to hear anything from either Chibnall or Whittaker, and "professional TV producer wakes up one day to discover the Beeb can be hard to work with" is an interesting take, but neither does this sound totally out of left field. I'm not panicking yet.

    RIP Stan Lee

    This has been very clearly coming for a very long time (it was heartbreaking to see the shape he was in at the C2E2 autograph line). His name was one of the first things I ever learned to read.

    Everything Marvel

    James Gunn has been fired from Guardians Vol. 3 following the resurfacing of older tweets he made when he was kind of a shithead.

    Steve Ditko RIP

    I guess I'd throw in Larry Lieber. He's certainly not a big name, but he's credited as co-creator of Iron Man, Thor, and Ant-Man. This is enormous. Not only did Ditko give us Spider-Man and Doctor Strange (as well as The Question, and Squirrel Girl, and Lord knows however many I'm not thinking of), but his storytelling and imagery were unmatched. I could look at his work in Strange Tales all day. Damn.
