The “Catwoman Pitch Meeting” video.

Via Geeks Are Sexy comes something that would be horribly cruel if it weren’t horribly accurate… well, OK, it’s horribly cruel AND horribly accurate.

DUST’s ‘The Black Hole.’

A bit old, but The Black Hole tracks remarkably well to the stereotypical player-character’s reaction to something that’s just flat-out wrong, but not actively dangerous. Assuming that the PC in question was ethically vague in outlook. No, not all of them are, of course.

The obligatory ‘What the HELL, Syfy?’ Banana Splits trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: my first reaction to a Banana Splits horror flick came right out of Dark Humor. But there are people who are legitimately upset about this, and I can’t say that they’re wrong, either. Lots of people like to say that a particular movie is wrecking your childhood, but very few of those flicks are actually trying to do that:

Off to see MiB: International.

Figured it out; will see MiB: International today, and Shaft on Father’s Day. I even have enough credits to get a free ticket, and maybe they’ll upgrade my popcorn or something because it’s a dad holiday and I’m a dad. Or not. The movie theaters do give out quirky little specials for this reason or that, but you can’t really expect them on cue. Or for the specials to make all that much sense.

I hope the movies don’t suck!

The ‘Doctor Sleep’ teaser trailer.

Sequel to The Shining, and… Doctor Sleep is certainly aware of the name ‘Stanley Kubrick.’

It’s based on the book, which I might have read? I don’t remember, actually. Stephen King and I have a complicated relationship: I liked him a lot better when he was writing books that were thumbs in the eyes of the same people who he’s since decided to ah, curry favor with. But that’s irrelevant to the issue at hand, I suppose. This doesn’t look wretched, but I have to wonder whether it can support the weight. More from the movie side of it than from the book side, of course.

The ‘Pennyworth’ trailer.

I got mixed opinions about it.

Movie of the Week: Aquaman.

They were just GIVING Aquaman out for ten bucks at the Target. TEN BUCKS. And this was the Blu-Ray plus digital version, too! What was I supposed to do, just walk on past and go get the orange juice that I was there for? I’m not STUPID.

The conundrum: Shaft, or MiB International?

They both come out on the same day, you see. Both have their points; I want to see both, but realistically I’m not going to see both. The MiB franchise is shaky (to be polite about it); this latest Shaft offering may be a little too deferential to the modern era’s sensibilities. Or maybe not (do not click that link to the trailer at work, or in front of small children, or your mother).

Crud: I had half-talked myself into MiB International while writing this. Now I’m back on the damn fence again. Maybe I should be trying to figure out how to finesse this…

The Captain Marvel Honest Trailer.

It’s very insightful — which is to say, it matched my opinion of the movie. I never thought that Captain Marvel was actually bad for what it was, which was a Marvel origin story. It occurs to me that that’s the problem that most Marvel origin stories had: they’re only origin stories, instead of the ‘superhero + something else’ model that the best MCU flicks have*.
