Citing creative differences, Lord and Miller have left the Han Solo movie. These two dudes were, quite frankly, the only reason I hate faith such a movie could be executed well. The two directors have made a career out of taking seemingly hackneyed and offensively dull premises and turning them into refreshingly subversive, and intelligent comedies. And now. Man.
I am…seriously fucking worried about this movie, and bummed.
Last week, news dropped that a John Wick TV show was in the works, that would delve into the mysterious world of assassins that Wick inhabits. And I was like, eh, I don’t know, I like it being mysterious and undefined. But! It could be good. So, just cut and paste that same sentiment of mine when it comes time to ask me how I feel about a John Wick prequel comic.
How about you?
Not trying to be particularly snarky, here. Do people care about the premiere of Star Trek Discovery anymore? Between the seemingly endless delays, the loss of showrunner Bryan Fuller, and the majority of the show being banished to a esoteric streaming service, the show faces serious challenges. At the very least.
I’m glad you (didn’t) ask! I just blitz’d a weekend in Maui for a best friend’s wedding, and well. Coming back to reality after two days in paradise requires efforting on several levels. Readjusting to timezones, readjusting to the perils and praxis of regular life, yadda, yadda.
But I can’t complain.
I’ve discovered the answer to a question I’ve been asking myself since last year, when I knew I would be going to Maui. Is thirty hours of travel in the span of four days, and thousands of dollars for said travel, and missing teaching two incredibly intensive summer classes, worth forty-eight hours in paradise, for a best friend’s wedding?
But this, right here! It’s the weekly column where we share what we’re up to, on a given week! I’ll share my own findings, as I rattle around in the befuddled muck of my consciousness, trying to figure out not just what I’m up to, but what day it is, what time it is, this and that, this and that.
I really enjoyed the first couple of Sherlock seasons. To the point that, despite not liking the back half of the show, I’m excited its creators are going to be adapting Dracula in much the same fashion.
Every goddamn “event” comic has at least one splash page with like infinity heroes throwing down against the baddies. So it makes sense that Avengers: Infinity War, the cinematic equivalent of an event comic, will be replicating this shit on the shiny screen.
I cannot fucking wait.
It’s glad to see DC finally not fucking around on something awesome. Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns are already writing the treatment for Wonder Woman 2.
Apparently, most fans of the Dark Tower books suspected that the upcoming movie was a sequel to the series. Well, now it’s like official or something get stoked or something I don’t give a fuck! I have no emotional investment in this upcoming train wreck.
NASA has found 10 new (as in newly found, not out of the package) Earth-sized planets. But wait, there is more! These planets sport conditions ideal for water.
Charlie Booker’s Black Mirror is a stark take on our dystopian future-present. It’s incisive, wonderful, and depressing as fuck. If you’ve spent time wondering how else you can get Booker’s insight into our present techno-rot, having finished the series, well good fucking news. The show is being adapted into a book anthology series.
