The Surprisingly Interesting ‘Wonder Park’ trailer.

Wonder Park kind of has a video game vibe to it.

As in, OK, here’s a broken down magical amusement park. You have to get it up and running again, using found items and resource management. Here are some animal companion NPCs, each of whom has a special ability and who will eventually be in charge of something.  Get going!

…Look, I play Fallout 4 and Conan Exiles. I’m all about building the best danged dollhouse in the world.  Really and truly, I am.  So maybe this won’t suck.

Netflix bringing ‘Ghoul’ in August.

Live-action Gundam coming to big screen.

Wasn’t this called something else in America? “Legendary and Sunrise are collaborating on a live-action film version of Sunrise’s “Gundam” giant robot franchise. The movie was announced by the companies on Thursday at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles.” I didn’t watch it, but there was some sort of show involving aliens and pilots and some of them were colored blue*?

Samuel L Jackson gets the Mother Of All Face Lifts for Captain Marvel.

Nah, that’s not gonna look freaky at all: “Kevin Feige has confirmed to Slash Film that moviegoers will see Samuel L. Jackson de-aged for the entire runtime of [Captain Marvel].” As Coming Soon notes there, Disney/Marvel has been playing with this tech for a while now in the MCU: Ant-Man, Civil War, apparently Ant-Man and the Wasp (the crud going around Chez Lane has completely screwed up my plans to see the movie), and now Captain Marvel.  Oh, and they did something similar with Rogue One*.

Video of the Day, The MCU Needs GI Joe For Its Next Phase edition.

IN YOUR HEARTS YOU KNOW I AM RIGHT.

There’s also a reasonable link: Marvel published the comic books.  And look at that aesthetic.  Look at it. It’s perfect.

Moe Lane

PS: Yes, I know: SHIELD, and Hydra.  But forget that, or use those organizations for spy flicks. GI JOE/Cobra is for the More Dakka stuff.

Trying to decide about this Wellington Paranormal TV show.

Plus: mockumentary by Taika Waititi about cops dealing with magic in New Zealand.

Minus: the trailer to Wellington Paranormal just isn’t clicking for me. Don’t know what it is, but it doesn’t seem to have that zing. I keep waiting for the moment when I laugh, and it isn’t hitting.

Dunno if this is a problem with the show, or the trailer. Honestly, it could be either. I’ve seen some trailers that did their shows absolutely no favors.
