Our long national nightmare is over: there will be a Boba Fett movie.

Rejoice: “James Mangold is writing and will direct a Star Wars standalone movie centered on Boba Fett, the feared bounty hunter and fan favorite character, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.”  Guess they ran the likely numbers for Solo this weekend* and realized that, hey, this was a doable project. Or Disney has a checklist, and it’s Reveal The Next Movies time. Probably the last movie of the trilogy, the Boba Fett flick, and then the Kenobi standalone.

I would not object to a neo-Western/samurai Ben Kenobi flick, honestly.  It would have a certain appeal.  And it’s likely to be able to sustain a couple of titles, too. (more…)

BBC starting to film The War of the Worlds.

Saw this on Facebook:

Set in Edwardian England, this new adaptation of H.G. Wells’ seminal tale – the first alien invasion story in literature – follows George (played by Rafe Spall) and his partner Amy (Eleanor Tomlinson) as they attempt to defy society and start a life together. Rupert Graves is Frederick, George’s elder brother, and Robert Carlyle plays Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist. The War of the Worlds tells their story as they face the escalating terror of an alien invasion, fighting for their lives against an enemy beyond their comprehension.

My mini-review of Deadpool 2.

Short version: It Did Not Suck.  I liked it.  Deadpool 2 may not take itself entirely seriously, but it takes me seriously, and does not wish to waste my time.

Deadpool 2 tomorrow!

Finally.  I think that tomorrow is the first day in about two weeks where I didn’t have something or other scheduled.  Well, except for grocery shopping, but there’s a supermarket  right next to the movie theater.

I am looking forward to finally seeing Deadpool 2: I have been reassured that It Does Not Suck.  I even have some marginal, small, likely futile hope that Solo will likewise not, to quote the colorful argot of my childhood, ‘blow chunks.’ Heck, if Incredibles 2 is likewise good then I will have seen five movies in theaters this year that were worth seeing in theaters.  This is hardly a guaranteed outcome.

I… have seen ‘Thundercats Roar.’

Precisely, I have seen an animated gif of ‘Thundercats Roar’ and a couple of still pictures.  This was sufficient to let me know that the same people who took Teen Titans from us in order to inflict ‘Teen Titans Go!’ upon a Fallen world are the ones who must be blamed for this re-imagining of the Thundercats animated program. I can think of nothing more damning to say about it than this: it is unworthy of the original Thundercats television program, and I only watched that show because I was a teenager and Cheetara was a hot catgirl who wore a body-hugging leotard.

I’m not even mad, per se. That would imply that this thing could provoke an unstunted emotional response in me.  I just want to know how these people can look at themselves in a mirror, that’s all.

The AXL trailer.

Giant robot dog who is also a Good Boy.

As ComingSoon noted, there’s an Eighties family movie vibe to this one.  Which is nice. It’s also developed from this proof-of-concept short film; guess they proved it?
