The new Justice League trailer.

Hey! They discovered that the color wheel includes red!

I dunno, folks.  It presents more like a proper superhero movie than every DCEU movie that isn’t Wonder Woman so far.  Is it a proper superhero flick?  Guess we’re going to find out!

PS: I like how they’re doing Aquaman, at least. So they’ve got that going for them.

OK, your character is cool. But is your character JUAN PUJOL GARCIA cool?

As near as I can tell, every word of this story about Juan Pujol Garcia is true.  At least, MI5 is corroborating it. This guy messed up the Nazi response to D-Day in ways that is almost inconceivable to modern science, and he made it look easy.

The Shape of Water trailer.

I dunno if Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water is going to be a Deep Ones movie or a Abe Sapiens prequel in-all-but-name movie.  Will watch it, either way.  I kind of would groove to it being a “Deep Ones, but they aren’t all that bad” movie.  But then, I’m weird.

Moe Lane

PS: In case you’re wondering: supposedly, the reason why del Toro didn’t end up doing At The Mountains of Madness is because the idiot told the studios that it would end up rated R. And I don’t mean ‘idiot’ meanly: he’d agree with me. In fact, I read an interview the other day where del Toro was ruefully cursing himself for not lying about the intended rating until it was too late for the studio to do anything about it. Being ethical bites sometimes, huh?

The Pacific Rim: Uprising teaser trailer.

Oh, yeah.  There we go.  As Honest Trailers said about the original, Pacific Rim: Uprising promises more giant robots punching giant monsters in the face.

Normally, I’d try to guess what the subtext of that is. After all, ‘Uprising’ suggests that there’s something to rise up against, right?  Only, I don’t care.  Giant robots. Giant monsters. Giant robots punching giant monsters.  This is pretty much everything that I care about.

This one comes out February 23, 2018. Can’t wait…

The latest Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer.

OK, yeah, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is going to be surfing the edge of ‘fun’ and ‘hot mess.’  We won’t know which until it comes out, either.  I’m quite keen to see how it all goes down.

Seriously. Even if it’s a hot mess it’s going to be an ambitious one.  And I like the cast, so there’s something to be said there, too.

Who in God’s name keeps buying Starship Troopers videos?

Because they keep making them.  Am I missing something, here?  Seriously, I’m starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with me.  Or that maybe I’m getting old.

Moe Lane

PS: What? Will I watch Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars?  Don’t be absurd.  The tactical behavior of the Bugs started off stupid in the First Abomination, and apparently never got any better. The real Johnnie Rico — well, you know what I mean — would have erased these CGI-happy herds of stampeding praying mantises halfway through the first movie and then gone out for pineapple squash.

Yeah.  I’m one of those Heinlein fans.  I didn’t even have to look it up.  And here: have a taste of the true quill.

This Memento Honest Trailer is genius.

Sheer genius, in that special Nolan way. I laughed like a loon and I haven’t even seen Memento.  …Yeah, I know, but the pile never gets any smaller.

The new, slightly disconnected, Blade Runner 2049 trailer.

As my wife says: “The Fridge Logic* is strong in this one.” At least, the potential for Fridge Logic.  There are many questions being begged in the Blade Runner 2049 trailer.

*WARNING!  TV TROPES LINK!

RIP, George Romero.

George Romero was 77; he was, of course, the man who defined the zombie in modern American horror.  He in fact defined it so thoroughly that all creative visions of the Walking Dead are critically referenced in terms of how close or far they hove to or from Mr. Romero’s concepts.  That is an enviable artistic legacy.

My condolences, prayers, and good wishes to his family and loved ones.

You had me at ‘The Flintstones meets D&D,’ Pixar.

Seriously. That’s literally what Polygon called it.

Monsters University director Dan Scanlan is bringing one of his most personal stories to the big screen with Pixar’s next untitled film.

The movie is set in a world of “suburban fantasy.” We weren’t show much, but a title card displayed a small town’s skyline, complete with street lamps and a water-tower. There also happened to be a dragon flying off in the distance. Scanlan’s movie will include unicorns, dragons and a plethora of other beasts that are considered pests to other, ordinary folk — like centaurs, trolls and sprites.

…Yeah, just let me know when that’s out so I can get my seat, Pixar.  The odds of me not seeing this movie are low. Very, very low.
