The Halloween (2018) Honest Trailer.

Honest Trailers was mostly “it was all right” about Halloween (2018)

…but when they got to the true crime podcasters in that movie, well.  Honest Trailers had views on them, let me tell you.  Somewhat waspish views, too.  The kind that professionals have when Hollywood gets the technical details wrong.  Seriously, listening to said views was what made me put this one up.

Doctor Doom movie dead. At Fox.

At least, that’s the word: “…Fox has been developing films for Gambit, X-Force, and Doctor Doom for quite awhile, but according to a recent report… those movies are all dead thanks to the upcoming Fox and Disney merger.”  ‘Recent report’ being a tweet, but OK.  It’s 2019, that’s how this stuff goes now.

Tweet of the Day, Disney Does What Needs Doing In Mary Poppins edition.

Mad respect, as the kids say.

Quote of the Day, I Kind Of Want To Argue This But I’m Having Difficulty Doing So edition.

“If you have thousands of dollars to go on a trip to see Blink 182, that’s on you; that’s Darwinism at its finest.”  I don’t know who the dude is, but it’s from the documentary on the infamous Fyre party.  And I want to argue this.  Even people with more money than sense have a right to expect that they’ll get what they actually paid for.

But there’s that little, highly inappropriate part of me that persists in giggling.

The ‘Polar’ Netflix trailer.

I swear to God, movies like Polar originally come from the HR departments of Sinister mega-corporations on other timelines.
