  1. Train of the Dead: review forthcoming, but yikes. Paper Tiger: this is classic Bill Burr. So good. Lucy: somehow managed to never watch it. The premise turned me off because the "humans only use 10% of their brain capacity" thing is just plain made-up bullshit. If I recall, this was around the time of Under the Skin, so I guess Scarlett wanted to go for the "alien" character during this era of her career. It's a stupid movie, but it's beautiful. It's also very scattershot in its editing. I guess I understand what they were going for injecting the images of the wild, but it felt very
  2. I was majorly into her when I saw Dazed & Confused at thirteen. For a couple years. Not even that could save Chasing Amy for me.
  3. Daniel Isn't Real: review forthcoming. Lots to talk about with this one, though. Features: 86 Shorts: 2 Documentaries: 12 Rewatches: 3
  4. Haven't seen Clerks 2 either. I don't plan to. I was turned off of Kevin Smith movies long before that. I think he's a decent guy (when he isn't constantly talking about smoking pot or having anal sex with his wife...which used to be a lot), but his movies are awful. Almost across the board.
  5. El Diablo #1-6: this was the miniseries from several years back, re-establishing the character in the DCU as more of a Ghost Rider analogy. It's quite good in parts. Hester and Parks on art is, as always, a delight. Pestilence A Story of Satan #5: low-key contender for one of the best horror comics of the past few years that no one knows about. Finally got to the end. Good shit. Spider-Force #2: this is incomprehensible. The Last Space Race #2: still pretty good. Punisher #4: still fucking great. Uncanny X-Men #2: not the greatest. Hope it evens out. Weapon H #10
  6. Thor Ragnarok: having watched it again, I'm certain it is the most comic bookish of all the MCU films. It takes Planet Hulk, Contest of Champions and about seven separate Thor storylines and combines them into a fun movie that moves at a great clip. Solid. Features: 85 Shorts: 2 Documentaries: 12 Rewatches: 3
  7. Honey Boy: Shia Labouf wrote a movie about his relationship between him and his dad during his days as a child actor, and a second timeline of the fallout of such an existence.And he's playing his father. Lucas Hedges is playing grown up him and it really feels like he's doing a bit of an impression. Still pretty great though. On top of headlining two of my favourite movies of the year, he's really stepped up front as a great actor and filmmaker. The ending is a little abrupt, but a beautiful film nonetheless. Features: 84 Shorts: 2 Documentaries: 12 Rewatches: 3
  8. We Summon the Darkness:reviewed on this week's episode. Regardless of how good it is, it gets the Daddario bump. Babysitter: Killer Queen: probably reviewing this soon, but Will ain't wrong. Bill Burr Walk Your Way Out: It wasn't lighting me on fire, but the second half is VERY strong. Some of the best of Burr's work, IMO. Features: 83 Shorts: 2 Documentaries: 12 Rewatches: 3
  9. Dude from Lovecraft Country is cast as Kang in Ant-Man 3. Looks like they're leaning into the time travel. Yikes.
  10. Yeah, I finished last night. Episode 9 might be the finest hour of television I've ever seen, setting up one of my favourite TV moments of all-time in episode 10.
  11. Good lord, the Watchmen show is incredible.
  12. Tucker & Dale vs. Evil: God...I watched this with my boys, and I've seen it before. But, I think this might be a perfect film. Features: 81 Shorts: 2 Documentaries: 11 Rewatches: 3
  13. The Stone King #1: forgettable. Uncanny X-Men #1: A decent fresh start. I just hope it's more cohesive going forward. William Gibson's Alien 3 #1: The only good version of this movie is the original theatrical version, and even that kind of sucks. Smooth Criminals #1: also forgettable. Awful art. Black Hammer Age of Doom #7: Kirby homage is Kirby homaging American Carnage #1: Nawww...I'm good. Bettie Page #1: This is the last BP comic I'll ever read. Crimson Lotus #1: ugh...not good. GI Joe Silent Option #2: ok High Heaven #3: this should be up my a
  14. Add to the fact that he acted in basically every single movie we know him from while fighting a very aggressive form of cancer. The guy really was a hero. Fuck cancer. RIP.
  15. I contend the only thing wrong with the remake is it not being titled Kung Fu Kid. Setting it in China and having him practice kung fu is peak Hollywood "they're all the same-ism." That said. Taraji P. Henson. So it's balanced out.
  16. The Friends of Eddie Coyle: revisited my favourite crime film for a guest spot on someone else's podcast. I watched it twice today. Features: 80 Shorts: 2 Documentaries: 11 Rewatches: 3
  17. Yeah, I've since gone back and looked at a bunch of this stuff. Guy's a major athlete being entirely wasted by WWE. Same old story.
  18. I first saw him as Prince Puma in Lucha Underground and I was shocked (and still am) about his standing suplex. It's the most amazing physical feat I've seen other than The Mountain beating strength records set during the eddaic sagas. Here, he's doing it to Rey Mysterio, but he did it to guys who were a lot taller and heavier than him. A lot.
  19. Note that Chris and I are agreeing about a superhero movie.
  20. I thought he was cool as White Rabbit in Lucha Underground, but I haven't checked out NXT yet. I realized I get that too, so I'll be watching this week.
  21. Rumour I heard is Aleister Black (who's rad) is coming back with a new gimmick.
  22. So, I got free cable for two years and started watching wrestling again. Am I missing something? Is there a reason Smackdown's roster is so stacked and Raw's is full of guys I have no idea who they are?
  23. they're not using any of Whedon's footage and it's four hours long. Fuck everyone who said "there isn't enough footage for a movie" I'm in. Hard.
  24. Haha! It definitely gets better animation and story-wise halfway through season one (with the introduction of Doom).
