THE NEW MUTANTS: release on Disney+, or Hulu?

I mean, I agree with CBR’s argument: THE NEW MUTANTS is a cursed production. Everything in the universe has seemingly conspired to cause it to explode on the eventual cinematic launch pad, up to and including a global pandemic. If there was ever a movie that could benefit from a direct-to-streaming release, it’s this one. Everybody¬†would¬†understand. They’d all nod, and make sympathetic noises. Nobody would blame THE NEW MUTANTS for this.

I just dunno whether it should be on Disney+. Horror-superhero flick, remember? Hulu sounds like a better fit. And, heck, the Mouse owns that one too, right?

SAMURAI JACK now available for free on Adult Swim.

Via GeekTyrant. All five seasons, no sign-ups, apparently there are ads but geez: what do you want, an egg in your beer? Although God knows when I’m going to be able to watch SAMURAI JACK, myself. The major thing that the recent pandemic has done to my viewing habits is that I now have two impressionable young children always within viewing and hearing range. It puts a damper on things.

Trying to decide about EMMA.

Look, I like Jane Austen, and from what I’m hearing about EMMA it’s supposed to be pretty good. But do I like Jane Austen to spend twenty bucks to rent this movie, when I can wait a few weeks and order the DVD for pretty much the same price? We’re all going to have to make that calculation for the foreseeable future when we make movie purchasing decisions*, methinks.

*Assuming that you haven’t given up on movies, and I wouldn’t blame you if you have. But I do love them so. And I will miss the big screens.

Watched WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS and MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM tonight.

In lieu of writing anything, because screw it I had ribs and a beer and I was chilling for once. Anyway:

The ‘You Get Served What I Can Find’ WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS trailer.

Welp, it’s come to this. Trailers for Satanic Panic retro horror-comedy movies. WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS* is in full Eighties schlock mode, and does not look like it’ll rise much above its origins. But WOW they’ve got people smoking cigarettes in the trailer! You almost never see that anymore.

Ahsoka Tano coming to Season 2 of THE MANDALORIAN.

‘Hidden Jedi’ is a complicated profession:

Confirmed by Variety. My wife is currently chewing through CLONE WARS, but even I know that this is a big deal for Star Wars fans*. It’s going to be interesting to see a no-fooling Jedi show up in THE MANDALORIAN next season.

*I am not a Star Wars fan. It’s not that I don’t like the correct percentage of the movies; I do, and I’ve seen some of them a bunch of times. It’s just that I don’t have a sufficient grasp of The Knowledge to qualify; which is something I abruptly discovered the first time I played in a Star Wars TTRPG. It was educational! And very, very humbling.

BLACK WIDOW (perhaps) begins the transition to a primarily digital release.

At least, that’s my guess. BLACK WIDOW definitely won’t be released in theaters on May 1st, at least. And, contra GeekTyrant: I don’t think that they’re just going to delay theatrical release. There’s too much potential money on the table: this is the first MCU movie of the post-Endgame era. And it’s likely that Disney would like getting that money, too.

The ‘The Streaming Services Have Won’ UPLOAD trailer.

As I noted earlier: the movie studios are beginning the evitable shift to sidestepping actual theatrical releases and just releasing them digitally*. So you might as well keep track of what coming on streaming services, because they’re gonna be the ones pumping out the content until the studios figure out actually how to release stuff digitally as their default option. although admittedly UPLOAD does look interesting:
