Sweatpants, Diet Dew, a fire, a furry dog at my feet. Life ain’t bad, life ain’t bad generally. Going to keep this simple, on this simple evening. This is Monday Morning Commute, the column where we share what we’re up to during a particular week. The new movie we want to see. A comic book dropping on Wednesday we can’t wait to read. Et cetera et cetera et cetera. Going to keep this simple, on this simple evening.
I’ll go first, you’ll follow in the comments section. Fair? Fair. Fair!

Johnny Depp, more recently known for becoming a joke in Tim Burton movies and having an ugly divorce with his wife, will be co-starring in the Fantastic Beasts sequel. This may be somewhat cool, if he wasn’t charged with domestic abuse, and wasn’t a complete mockery of himself lately. Especially the former.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find More Harry Potter Revenue is getting itself four fucking sequels. Four! Why not, right? Print that Potter Money, print it right up!
Fucking around aside, I’m actually excited to see Fantastic Beasts.
Fantastic Beasts hasn’t dropped yet. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t getting itself a sequel. I mean, why wouldn’t it be getting a sequel? Fucking Potter fans are like us Star Wars fans, they’ll snag anything related to the franchise. License to print money, et cetera. I’d be judgmental about it, if I didn’t relate to it so much.
I’m still wading through the seemingly unconquerable amount of SDCC news that drifted into the sewer of pop culture wherein I live. So forgive me for just finding this trailer. Which, I’m going to admit, I enjoyed.
Despite hating the second season of True Detective, I love me some Colin Farrell. In fact, he’s one of the more enjoyable components of the aforementioned abysmal television season. So I’m down with him being cast in Fantastic Beasts. I imagine I will enjoy this movie moderately more than I have his earnest detecting.
This news isn’t for me, folks. I’m just imagining there’s some portion of our non-existent fanbase that may find this relevant. Cause me? Didn’t read the book, may not see the movie.
More news on that Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts. Apparently it ain’t just going to be one movie. ‘Cause who the fuck does one movie anymore?! Losers. That’s who. It’s all about the trilogy. Truthfully, the odd, pseudo-meta premise of the book (inside a book? I think?) has me intrigued. So while I’m not particularly sure what the fuck it is all about, I’m willing to preemptively dig on it.
