Valiant Releases Trailer for Bloodshot, Their First Movie

Like any corporate comic publisher, Valiant really wants to be making movies. Their first film, Bloodshot, opens in February 2020, and the trailer is now available. I previously didn’t know anything about the character, but (and given the name, this shouldn’t surprise me) he looks like a memory-wiped super-soldier type, a magically healing violent weapon who wants to discover the truth about his past. So casting Vin Diesel seems right for this Wolverine/Robocop mashup. (Personally, I’d rather see more of […]

After Delay, Wynonna Earp Resumes Production

Wynonna Earp — the TV show airing on Syfy, produced by IDW, and based on a comic series — ran into some snags earlier this year. Production was delayed on the upcoming fourth season, and speculation had it that it was due to money problems at IDW Entertainment. However, in early July, it was announced that production was greenlit to start this fall, with Season 4 airing in Summer 2020. IDW was aided by more money from Syfy as “the […]

Good Omens

If anyone’s left around here, you may have wondered where I’ve been for the past week or more. I became completely obsessed with Good Omens, which dropped six hour-long episodes on Amazon prime video at the end of May. I’ve already watched it three times so far — once straight through, once just for more of the Boyfriends (and to better understand the setup for a plot twist), and once to share with friends. (Brunch party, with red wine for […]

Captain Marvel Now Available on Home Video

Turns out a lot of people disagreed with me about the Captain Marvel movie — it was a blockbuster success! It made over a billion dollars in ticket sales! And it’s now available for home viewing. Captain Marvel launches today on your favorite digital platform, with the disc version coming on June 11 in either the 4K Cinematic Universe Edition (4K UHD, Blu-ray, and Digital Copy) or a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray and Digital Copy). I’m looking forward to giving the […]

New Mutants Movie Delayed Again

It’s got to be hard, merging two major movie studios. No matter how bad it will eventually be for the customer, Disney is plowing ahead with its acquisition of Fox, and one of the results seems to be not knowing what to do with The New Mutants movie. Originally produced by Fox as part of the X-Men franchise, it’s now owned by Disney, along with the rest of the Marvel properties (except for Sony’s Spider-Man rights). Originally scheduled for release […]

Avengers Cast Has Some Singing Fun

It’s not like the sure-to-make-a-billion-dollars superhero movie opening this coming weekend needs any promotional help at this point, but after re-watching Captain America: Civil War last night, it was nice to see these Avengers actors goofing off. The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon rewrote Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” to cover Marvel superheroes and had some of the cast of Avengers: Endgame sing it. Here it is: (Now that I found the source, I realized the guy in […]

Justice League vs. The Fatal Five

I had high hopes for the newest DC original animated movie, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five. It has two of my favorite DC things: the Legion of Super-Heroes and Jessica Cruz, Green Lantern. Plus, it had an intriguing theme, that of mental health and struggling with invisible illness. (The studio provided a review copy. In addition to the physical media release, the movie can be seen on the DC Universe streaming service. Since they sell access to the digital […]

Scotch: A Golden Dream

Scotch: A Golden Dream is an hour-and-a-half documentary about the making of Scotch whisky and its many traditions. With views of green pastures, amber liquid, and Scottish activities and outfits, it opens in a relaxing mood and continues in the same style, building layers of knowledge revolving around one particular master of the drink. Finished a couple of years ago, the movie will be available on demand on May 7. (Since I previously watched Neat: The Story of Bourbon, I’m […]
