Sony allies with Netflix in the Streaming Wars.

That’s what somebody on Sonny’s Twitter thread is calling it, at least, and he’s not wrong. I really wish Paramount would do the same thing, preferably with a service I’m already subscribed to. There are too many combatants in the Streaming Wars as it is.

The fairly redundant MST3K Kickstarter post.

Redundant in the sense that there’s almost no point in putting this post up: the new MST3K Kickstarter may actually fund before I finish typing it out. Two million in as many days is pretty impressive. Although they’re really trying for five or six, which would let them produce a full season. Crowdfunding is a fascinating development…

The GODZILLA VS. KONG Honest Trailer.

I guess Honest Trailers doesn’t wait anymore, when it’s streaming. They also understand the fundamental thing about GODZILLA VS. KONG: this movie cannot be judged by the usual criteria. It is about spectacle, pure and simple. They also picked up on the retro-conspiracy theory, which I kind of wish this series would go and run with. I like me a good Merovingian fish-man plot movie…

Finally figured out what’s been bothering me about the latest Batman designs.

And it’s always the same thing:

You can’t see the dang symbol in the dark. As Frank Miller’s Batman once famously pointed out, he wears a big target on his chest because he can’t armor his head. (I even think they referenced that here.)

PS: As I have noted before, I am tentatively down for Violent Goth Batman. It’s a legitimate take on the character. Annnnnd… dammit, they’re still not doing a animated version of THE DOOM THAT CAME TO GOTHAM. What, DC doesn’t like money?
