*Finally* finished Season One of The Tick.

It was good!  The second half of The Tick was a little smoother than the first half, and I liked the first half just fine.  I also liked everybody’s character development and how the show never devolved into self-parody.  The message was, I think, “You never know when somebody will turn out to be awesome.”  I even ended up liking the guy who was kind of a jerk*, because the thing was he knew that he was kind of a jerk, and he was actually doing a better job than I credited him for in trying not to be.

Movie of the Week: So I Married An Axe Murderer.

I’m surprised that I’ve never done So I Married An Axe Murderer, because it is a movie that changed my life.  No, really.  It was the way Mike Myers dressed in it.  I know that this sounds fairly lame, but I realized that the clothing aesthetic might actually… work… for me?  And it did!  I looked better after I altered my wardrobe accordingly.

Also, it’s a howlingly good dark comedy (I’ve carefully not watched it recently, because I prefer my memory of it that way).   So, since it’s the 25th anniversary of the movie being made…

Disney giving Loki and Scarlet Witch their own miniseries.

Interesting, no?  “Marvel Studios will give a solo spotlight to both Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, with each getting a TV miniseries to be offered exclusively through the Disney streaming service that is expected to launch in late 2019.”

Michael B. Jordan signed to 2-film John Clark movie series.

They’re going to adapt Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse and Rainbow Six.  Michael B. Jordan will be playing the title character John Clark, and yes: I know that Clark was Irish and Jordan is African-American.  Jordan was also Killmonger in Black Panther, and so ridiculously good in that role that I wish that they had kept the character alive.  Also, the main plot of Without Remorse involved Clark going through Baltimore killing pimps and drug dealers in sometimes alarming ways; so I suspect that if you want them to otherwise stay faithful to the book, well… :shrug:

But, seriously: Michael B. Jordan can do John Clark properly.  I look forward to seeing the flicks.  Assuming that they don’t end up sucking, of course.

The ‘The Firefly Is Strong In This One’ ‘Prospect’ trailer.

Not a criticism.

Indeed, I am always up for a good sci-fi Western flick, and Prospect looks like it may be a… well, prospect.  It’s coming to Regal theaters in November, which means I could actually see it!  That doesn’t always happen to me, when it comes to indy SF movies.

Venom to get PG-13 rating.

Okaayyy… “The upcoming Spider-Man spinoff Venom has landed a PG-13 rating, according to the MPAA. …Director Ruben Fleischer was eager to push the limits of what he could do with the comic book property, and it seems that this new rating means he was able to do so.”  Is the male teenager demographic really that important to this movie’s success?

:pause:

Right. Strike that. The question looked stupid even when I typed it out.  Still, this is a movie about a barely-anti-hero that goes around and, at various points in the comics, eats bad people.  Certainly the trailers imply that.  But at the same time, they kind of also suggest that nobody really gets eaten.  It is, as they say, a puzzler.
