Venom brings in an $80/$205 million opening weekend.

Didn’t expect thatVenom is turning out to be one of those flicks that the critics hate and the movie-going public maybe doesn’t; I say ‘maybe’ because Solo had a decent opening weekend* and then proceeded to go belly-up. But if Venom has any legs, Sony is going to keep going with the Spider-Verse stuff.  At least, until Disney buys them, which probably will happen in 2025 or so**. (more…)

OK, Aquaman now definitely looks like It Will Not Suck.

That’s a damn solid trailer, there.

I am probably not suitable for assessing this She-Ra trailer.

I mean, it’s not something that I would watch.

Then again, I didn’t watch the original, either.  Or He-Man.  It’s got a weird animation style and aesthetic that I’m not really tracking, but that may be because I’m old.  Anybody watch the old show? Is this new one an abomination?

Trying to decide on Venom.

No, I don’t know why, either.  Venom does not look promising.  The critics are largely horrified by it.  I have been, at best, open yet skeptical about its likelihood of not sucking.  And yet I am thinking about seeing it anyway.

Am I really that desperate to get out of the house this Friday? Well, possibly. Although there is that new bookstore opening up at the mall…

Movies of the Week: The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler.

Yes, the Kolchak: The Night Stalker TV series was pretty bad.  But these two made-for-TV movies?  These were the true quill when it came to TV horror. …I’m reasonably sure.  It’s been a while since I saw them.  And, like many another TV gem, they’re surprisingly hard to get in digital format.

Still.

OK, Into The Spider-Verse trailer: wow me.

Let’s see what you’ve got.

[UPDATE] …OK. Spider-Ham.  That will trigger at least a small ‘wow’ from me. It at least significantly suggests that Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse respects the comic books.  Or that somebody from the MCU inserted a sleeper agent in the Before Times.  Either way, this might not suck!

The ‘Welllll…” second Titans trailer.

OK. Titans seems less awful than I first thought.
