“Deadpool” is a great example of necessity being the mother of invention, including an 11th-hour budget slash of $7 million more gone, which led to the team scrapping a planned setpiece for the “left my guns in the cab” joke.

My issue with Indiana Jones sequels post WW2 is that the field of archaeology is far less treasure hunting focused. In the 20s-30s sure it was a lot of just some dudes going out there and getting shiny bits without much care to the culture/ British Imperialists stealing things for museums. But if we are talking about Read more

You could legitimately have half the second movie just be clips from the first movie. Then change the ending...

I say, just rerelease the first movie again with a “2" in the title and see if anyone notices.

Last I checked (and someone will be along to correct me if I’m now wrong) there were no extras under WandaVision in Disney+ other than a trailer or two, so they should feel free to release allllllll the deleted scenes, gag reels, and extras like they do for most Marvel releases. I would love to watch them! Ohhh, I see Read more

Hell, didn’t Burton film “Batman Returns” on about $80 million? 1980s dollars, sure, but I think that film has roughly the same amount of work put into the sets as you’d need for “Bioshock.

“But I think until we figure out what’s going on with the industry – honestly, I think we need to figure out what is the next road map for the kinds of films that people want to make?”

To me this actually sounds like good news. Tighter budgets usually means better movies and directors who have to think outside the box.

Personally, I liked ThunderCats even though it was a slightly subtler 30 minute toy commercial, as was Silverhawks. A little more “ young adult “, with slightly better characters. Who wouldn’t like a mummy who could bulk up as well as a Lobo variation who could turn into an armored tank - like cyborg as villains ? Read more

Weirdly I have FAR more faith that we’ll be getting a decent entry in the franchise with Mangold holding the reigns. Dude’s always been a character-first director and with Logan and Ford vs Ferrari under his belt, there’s no doubt about his action bonafides. Read more

SARS-Cov-2 is a really useless bioweapon. First, the key to having a bioweapon is to develop a vaccine in parallel, to protect your own side. Mix the vaccine with some flu shot and don’t mention it otherwise and the bulk of the populace won’t know a thing. That doesn’t seem to have happened. Then one wants to make it Read more

And I was so looking forward to Barrowman’s Big Finish.

When I play something like Skyrim, I always feel compelled to play... I dunno... altruistically? Maybe that’s too strong a word, but even with sorta-immortal NPCs or games that have very little punishments for severe crimes, I’ve never been tempted to kill innocent NPCs. If there’s a dragon threatening a town, I want Read more

Older movies aren’t hard to watch if you can just accept that anything made more than five minutes ago is probably gonna contain something that’s offensive by today’s standards. It’s called contextualizing art, and it’s a really useful skill if you want to enjoy things.

his Columbo performance was not all that.
