The HARRIET trailer.

Well this looks promising.

…Do I even need to type out the snark that I might — would — have used, in the Before Times? No. No, I didn’t think that I did.

The BATMAN RETURNS Honest Trailer.

In a lot of ways, Batman Returns is more of a Tim Burton film than Batman itself was. And, as Honest Trailers kind of noted: this one was more of a Burton film than a Batman one. Mind you, I liked the first two just fine, but I think that the director and scriptwriters were more interested in Bruce Wayne than in Batman, and more interested in the various villains than in either facet of the hero.

Which is actually all right. Burton got excellent work out of Nicholson, Pfeiffer, De Vito, and Walken, and that’s nothing to sneeze at. I mean, look at what happened to the franchise with the next two movies. Or don’t, or at least don’t too closely; SAN loss might result.

Reminder: WashingCon in a couple of months.

Details about the convention here (Sept 7-8). I’m bringing it up because I might be doing something extra for WashingCon this year. Nothing extremely earth-shaking, but it sounds like it’d be a lot of fun to do. I’ll give more details once I get them.

Also, it was kind of nice to get asked. I kind of ninja this convention, in a lot of ways: I go in, run my games, do a little shopping, and don’t bother the convention staff with any drama or headaches. Guess somebody noticed how long I had been doing that, eventually (this’ll be my fourth year).

PS: My con games will be set in The Day After Ragnarok and The Fantasy Trip.

The A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD trailer.

All-caps is apparently now the style for movie titles, or else it always was and I’m just now finding out. I can live with either one. At any rate, witness the bright line that Hollywood fears to cross:

Hrm. Zack Snyder doing zombie heist flick “Army of the Dead.”

Army of the Dead is described as taking place during “a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.” Assuming one takes seriously the premise*, this doesn’t sound like a bad movie concept. I’m curious as to how Snyder’s going to do it.

Out on Netflix, eventually.

*I don’t mean the premise of zombies, generally, although certainly other people might be forgiven for wanting the era of zombie movies to be over. I speak of the premise that people are willing to handle or buy valuables stolen from a zombie outbreak zone. Or that ‘stealing’ even means anything, anymore. Most zombie movies assume the end of global civilization, if only because otherwise the poor shambling things would get mowed down en masse.
