If you are one of the people Bill and Ted are thanking… explain yourself, please.

I don’t want to be rude about this, but: if Bill and Ted 3: Face the Music is your fault (as the video below suggests), you need to explain yourself.

Nic Cage remains on-brand for new Nic Cage movie.

The thing about Nic Cage is, he’s aware. Cage knows what kind of reputation he has, at this point. And he’s pretty much cool with it:

Nicolas Cage will star in the martial arts actioner “Jiu Jitsu,” based on the comic book of the same name.

[snip]

“Jiu Jitsu” centers on an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters facing fearsome alien invaders in a battle for Earth every six years. Cage’s character and his team of Jiu Jitsu fighters band together with Moussi’s character to defeat the Brax.

Tweet of the Day, And So It Begins edition.

Although Deadpool in the MCU is… currently unlikely. They need to resolve the status of the X-Men first. Still, this is no longer impossible:

Moe Lane

PS: The Deadpool movies brought in almost 800 million apiece worldwide, off of 58 million and 110 million dollar production budgets. The Mouse can do math.

The Aquaman Honest Trailer.

They did remarkably little in the way of analysis of Aquaman.

They mostly went with “Do you see this? Do you SEE this?,” on the grounds that since the movie started with full-out gonzo and stayed there there’s not much more to say. And, indeed, there is not: except that this movie was awesomely fun. You should watch it.

I swear to God, this franchise gets more troubling, the more you watch it.

Cate Shortland, the Australian filmmaker perhaps best known for the Nazi drama Lore, is directing the project, which is scheduled to shoot in June in London.

Please do not reboot Sliders, NBC.

Nothing personal, John Rhys-Davies. You’re a good dude. Just… no.

At the Toronto Comicon this weekend, John Rhys-Davies has revealed to Flickering Myth that he and his Sliders co-star Jerry O’Connell are speaking with NBC about a potential revival of the 90s sci-fi series.

The sci-fi series followed a group of scientists as they discover ways to travel – or slide – into parallel universes. After getting stuck in one parallel universe and losing their way home, they have to discover how to find Earth Prime again or risk being stuck in that world for nearly 30 years before they can open a vortex again.

Movie of the Week: Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Why? Because I want to push back a little. I had a good time at Age of Ultron. Yeah, yeah, it’s not the best MCU movie, but watching the Avengers go around and group content their way through dungeons was fun. Everybody likes the individual-hero movies better, sure, but I’m down with the ensemble flicks, too.

So there.

Love, Death, and Robots seems… odd.

Just dropped on Netflix: I’ve been skimming it in lieu of doing anything useful with my evening, frankly. BFGcon was fun, but tiring. Played three games of Call of Cthulhu, and that was definitely fun itself but if I go next year I’m going to run something myself. There was a LOT of D&D, a bunch of CoC, and not very much else.

Anyway: Love, Death, and Robots seems a bit weird. Animated shows in an anthology style, but it’s on Netflix so there’s nipples and bad language words. Haven’t decided if I like it, yet.

Self-aggrandizing Tweet of the Day, Dammit I’m Right edition.

They were riffing on what the next Thor movie title should be. There is only one possible choice, honestly. At least, I think so.
