two topics on the dockett, first is the Incredible Fallout 4 news Bethesda brought their entire suite but nothing was more jaw dropping than Fallout. we'll get you all caught up.
Second is the ever growing frustration between Comic Book creators and the two iconic "publishers". comic books have been on a bad trend business wise and while it certainly is getting worse lately we've seen signs of a possible renaissance and change to the dynamic between publisher and comic book creator.
Listen and we'll make you feel all tingly inside.
Tonight I got a special advance screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron and I'm gonna share my thoughts on the film and it's place in the super hero genre that is still finding its identity.
But me and Kai are gonna lock horns so to speak over the newly released pics of Jared Leto in full costume as the Joker. This version of the Joker has set the internet a blaze and some would say in the same way Heath Ledger's casting did years ago so we'll break this image down and go over the plusses and minuses the pros and the cons the good the bad the weird and the ugly.
Josh Trank recently backed out of a really cool job that a lot of people would've killed for.
Fresh off the heels of Fantastic Four, Trank was set to take up the mantle of Star Wars and direct one in a series of anthological movies to be told in the developing "Star Wars Cinematic Universe" but he pulled out and recently he expalined that he felt the pressure of handling IP's with huge fan followings to be too much.
So Sweet Kai and myself are gonna sit down discuss all the ills of the geek cinematic world and bring you the concrete answers you never asked for.
Happy birthday to you all. now return the favor and wish myself and sweet Kai a happy bday!
enough aggrandizing, we missed a week so there are oodles of things to talk about plus important information about the format of the show.
DC blew their whole canon wide open, the Mary Sue decides to stop covering Game of Thrones, I watched Jupiter Ascending! and M. Night Shamylan came out of hiding to defend his Avatar movie.
we'll try to discuss all these things without slurring our words...too much.
This week saw opening of two movies both sequels in one way or another one rated R the other Pg-13. One powered by an endless promotion machine the other moderate promtions and dual cycle T.V. and internet spot.
this weekend Mad Max was beaten out by Pitch Perfect 2 and we'll discuss the reason behind that.
but first we'll break down Kia's beloved supergirl and how it's being handled by CBS. (there might just be a few F-bombs in this episode.)
This weekend had it's own ironic twist.
in the face of a UCLA study claiming that diverse casting actually sells movies more there were two movies opening with two very different advertising campaigns.
Get hard, a movie Staring Kevin Hart and Will Farrel maketed their movies showing both, in fact selling the movie solely on both actors star power. Home, a movie with a diverse cast sold it's movie primarly on a fat cat and a purple alien.
the result? Home brought in 54 million dollars domestically and and another 26 internationally where as Get hard opened to 34 million dollars.
which begs the question does diversity really sell? or are people just tired of Kevin Hart.
Age of Ultron is enjoying it's second week in the #1 spot and making tons of money, a fact the people at Marvel are sure to be happy about.
but amongst fans there have been rumblings about the film. People have been generally more critical and less forgiving of the second avengers film than the first.
is this because Age of Ultron is just not as good as the first? or is there something else contributing to the scrutiny of the insanely successful film
We'll discuss this and slur our words and curse our first borns....you know the stuff we do every week.
Now that you've all seen Avengers or heard so much about that you're sick of hearing about it, you're gonna hear about it from Kai and I.
Marvel's second foray into ensemble superhero went off without much of a hitch leaving a lot of people looking at DC/Warner as if to say "can you do any better?"
Warner Bros. seeming to feel the invisible eyes on them chose this weekend to release promo pictures for their ensemble comic book movie "Suicide Squad" which raised more questions than answered prayers.
while people have definitely responded favorably to the set photos and costume reveals, as par for the course, almost and equal amount of people have responded with either cautious optimism or flat out disappointment.
this comes on the heels of a scathing Hollywood Reporter article criticising Warner Bros' approach to their cinematic universe and the creative team behind it.
we'll discuss all this and try not to slur our words at the same time
This weekend seemed like a great time to bootleg, leak, drop and release just about every trailer under the sun we're talking Star Wars, Batman v. Superman, Fantastic Four, Attack on Titan final trailer for Avengers. There's a lot to discuss this week and we're gonna break down each trailer in turn and give our thoughts and opinions as we are wont to do.
plus we'll actually talk about Daredevil this time!! we promise!! cross our hearts, hope to....well yeat you get the picture.
if you've been living under a rock you might not have heard about just how awesome Marve's Daredevil is.
which is completely understandable because you have better things to worry about being that you live under a rock.
for everyone else though you really need to evaluate your life and get yourself to your preferred streaming device. that being said, this week we're gonna go over al the news and tidbits that have been floating around this week. there will be curse words and onomatopoeias.
It's Oscar Night!! I know many of you are upset that Kai and myself won no awards, nor were we nominated...but there were a lot of other people who won and much like Kanye West we have opinion we believe that are greater than anyone else's.
Politics are BIG deal when it comes to Oscars and one thing that seems to constant is that breaking decorum in any fashion almost always has backlash from Hollywood and the Academy itself. Tonight Patricia Arquette made a brilliant speach about wage equality and women's rights and it will be intersting to see how this impacts her career.
also we have more BATMAN v SUPERMAN news to discuss as Zach Synder tweeted an image of Jason Mamoa in full Aquaman costume, sparking a shit load of memes and harsh criticism, per usual.
