The MARVEL RUNAWAYS third (and final season) trailer.

Best not to strain too hard on this one, methinks. Better three good seasons of RUNAWAYS instead of three good ones and n crap ones. Obviously, this is on Hulu: it’ll probably stay there, too, given that Disney owns it now.

Tweet of the Day, I Don’t Feel Like Giving Context To This edition.

I may be running a small fever, you see — and certainly am coughing and sore-throaty. So I’m going to just chuckle at this generally and decline to explain why.

Plex adds MGM films to upcoming free AVOD service.

This is… tolerable.

Plex is a media streaming service and they’re working on a free AVOD[*] library that will launch by the end of the year. The latest additions to this library are MGM films. We don’t have a full list, but it does include Oscar winners as well as cult classics with some examples being Rain Man, The Terminator, and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. MGM joins Warner Bros., Lionsgate, and Legendary in the list of studios working with the streaming service.

This LIMETOWN Facebook Watch series is pretty good!

Came across LIMETOWN last night somehow, and it’s good so far! Apparently it’s based off of a horror-conspiracy podcast about this town that disappeared off the map, and I guess that they got Facebook to turn it into a webseries. It is quite creepy and surreal. You might find it worth your while to peruse it.

Robert Downey’s gonna do some animated voice work for WHAT IF…?

Well, sure.

In a recent interview with BuzzfeedThor: Ragnarok star Jeff Goldblum has confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will be returning to the MCU in Disney+’s upcoming animated TV series What If…?, reprising his iconic role by lending his voice to the the animated version of Tony Stark/Iron Man. Goldblum revealed that his character Grandmaster will be featured in the same episode as Iron Man and Taika Waitti’s Korg.

Voice work’s a lot easier than voice and camera work, and Robert Downey can have a damned cheeseburger while he’s doing it, too. Easy money, folks. Easy money, the fans will love it, and he won’t have to do any close-ups of his head. If there’s a downside, it’s not immediately obvious.

THE MANDALORIAN continues with the Not Sucking.

I just pretty much took the day off after the dentist, but episode 2 of THE MANDALORIAN dropped, so I watched it. It was good! Observations, in no particular order:

  • I like how Jawas are just pretty much utter sh*ts in this show. Not even villains; just really, really kick-worthy.
  • I hope they never take off this guy’s helmet. He’s great even without it.
  • Yeah, binge-watching is overrated. The dropping of episodes in a steady drip and not a flood? It’s working, here.
  • The background music’s pretty good.
  • And, not to make this completely unalloyed fanboy-ism: as my wife noted, this dude has a bad habit of dragging his bounties with him, even when it would be hideously inappropriate.

All in all, you just might like this.

Irresponsible Rumor Alert: Casey & Andy movie adaption to come to big screen?

Mayyyyyyyyybe probably not, but I’m always up for a certain amount of irresponsible rumor-mongering.

According to Deadline, Lord Miller’s Oscar-winning filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) are developing an original idea from The Martian and Artemis author Andy Weir in addition to the graphic novel Cheshire Crossing.

[snip]

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the untitled project has been described as another problem-solving science fiction adventure.

Watched Episode 1 of THE MANDALORIAN.

It did not suck! I was wondering if it would. But THE MANDALORIAN’s first episode, at least, delivers the goods on action. I just hope that they don’t do something stupid, like make the actor take his helmet off or decide that he doesn’t really need to be a hyper-professional bad-ass if that gets in the way of him having feelings. He should be a hyper-professional bad-ass who’s so good he can shoot around his feelings. That’s what they did in the first episode, and it worked out OK.

‘Course, that was just the first episode. Later ones might suck. Call no show good until its cancellation.
