  1. Toots & The Maytals - (Take Me Home) Country Roads
  2. Kinda excited to see it. It looks beautiful, and not just talking about the cast here. However, I'm still not going to be tempted out to the flicks just yet (UK isn't very safe plague-wise right now and won't be for some time.) Villeneuve is not happy about the HBO Max simul-release: while it guarantees some returns, it's a fraction of what it'd make even in COVID-era cinemas, and probably not enough to fund the second episode under normal circumstances. WB might greenlight it anyway though - in the hopes that things will have settled down by the time Part 2 is released, and t
  3. Visit Venus - Harlem Overdrive (hint: headphones on for full effect)
  4. Thievery Corporation - True Sons Of Zion
  5. Without being a Marvel insider, I can't tell you the reason why (and would have Feige sending the killer robots after me if I was/did.) Maybe they just thought the markets would support this one better than Black Widow as more things were open: maybe it was an experiment: maybe they thought there'd be more piracy given they launched this one heavily in China. (Having worked briefly in the Chinese VoD sector, a 30-second video saying that Xi Jinping resembles Winnie the Pooh will get taken down almost instantly and probably earn you a trip to Qincheng, whereas a full length rip of a
  6. Don't we all, dear boy. Sadly, the money from butts on seats is what primarily pays for them. (Well, and the kind of arcane dark accountancy that would terrify the Circle Of Thorns. The "rolling break-even" is particularly evil...) You have to wonder if epic summer tentpole movies on the Marvel/Bond/DC level will have to get shelved in favour of smaller, cheaper, more streaming-friendly versions for a while. Given what Favreau managed to achieve on a (relatively) micro-budget for The Mandalorian, using new filming techniques, it's certainly possible to get epic movie feels wit
  7. Bit of industry news: almost all of Marvel's upcoming slate after Eternals has been put back - basically leapfrogging down one slot. Spidey:NWH - currently still slated for December 17th but might move, especially if COVID strikes back in key markets. (UK is already in trouble with sub-variant AY4.2, aka Delta 2: Electric Boogaloo - so unfortunately another Christmas lockdown is likely.) Strange's MoM - now May 5th 2022 Love & Thunder - July 8th 2022 Wakanda Forever - Nov 11th 2022 The Marvels - Feb 17th 2023 GOTG 3 - May 5th 2023 (original date)
  8. You can see why they hired in Gunn for The Suicide Squad as soon as Marvel's back was turned. It's very much a James Gunn movie that happens to use DC characters rather than following on from the Snyder movies. An actor's director, pulls off the epic shots, borrows from all across canon but still invents for the screen, can balance fun and characterisation with some imaginative touches...
  9. BTW, I actually like the teaser for Shazam II more: I mean, Mirren is a goddess anyway, of course, so feels a bit like typecasting. But she looks like she's having a whole bunch of fun...
  10. Very pretty. Very short. Not much to go on. Dwayne's brand is wisecracking badass, and this movie is very much built around him, so evil wisecracking badass... yes, Terminator, or Idris's underrated turn in Hobbs & Shaw. Brosnan clearly on Alec Guinness duties - lend Serious Actor cred to a silly popcorn movie. I guess Bill Nighy was busy. Dr. Fate's an interesting choice as an antagonist though. Lots of power, free will issues... Pierce seems to like the sets. BIG physical sets, and BIG money spent. BIG risk if they're still depending on butts on seats rather than
  11. Not to "actually" you or (Bat-ctually?) but the Court of Owls showed up in Gotham season 3 and were effectively creepy, led by veteran character actor Ray Barry... https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/GothamCourtOfOwls Side note... not sure why there's bad Bat-titude about Gotham generally. It took the key characters and quite a few deep cut ones too, and used the whole thing as a sandbox to tell new and different stories. Plus loved Shaun Pertwee as ass-kicking Alfred, Mazouz and Bicondova held their roles well and should have a great future... ...and wh
