Terrific Pacific

by on Sep.25, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky

Pacific Rim was a sleeper hit of 2013, and its long-awaited sequel is finally coming in March 2018. My only major complaint is that Charlie Hunnam is nowhere to be found (due to scheduling conflicts), but I’ll make do with the also-gorgeous Scott Eastwood. John Boyega’s also cool, as proven in Star Wars, and Rinko Kikuchi’s returning, to boot.

Meanwhile, please, producers. Someone get the right to Voltes V and Daimos. A Godzilla crossover would also not be frowned upon.

The Kingsmen may have to wait.

by on Sep.20, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky

Kingsman: The Golden Circle finally opens today in the Philippines (along with the UK and other territories). Unfortunately, due to conflicting schedules, I might be able to watch it towards the end of next week. Bummer. Still, we may have some time tonight before we fly out for a vacay. We’ll see.

But regardless, Taron Egerton deserves all my patience. If not tonight, then I will definitely get to see you next week, babe.

In the meantime, here’s the second trailer to tide me (and anyone else) over.

Update: so we did manage to find time early Wednesday evening to watch it. Will post a review next time as there’s a lot going on as we prep for travel.

Shape of Thrones

Because, like the creators of this Star Wars gem, some people really just have a whoe lot of free time on their hands.

And thank goodness for that, or else we wouldn’t have this other gem.

Legendary Len

Len Wein was a comic book legend.

I mean, he only co-created Swamp Thing and this little-known character called Wolverine.

He was an accomplished comic creator, both as writer and editor, and won multiple awards. He was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2008.

Over at Marvel, Len was instrumental in reviving the X-Men in the early 70s with artist Dave Cockrum, co-creating Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus. Without their work, the later Claremont run would have been nothing. The X-Men, as we know it now, would have never come to pass without Len. He also wrote for Daredevil, The Incredible Hulk, The Amazing Spider-Man, Thor, Fantastic Four, and Marvel Team-Up.

Etta remembers.

by on Aug.29, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky

“No one looks better fighting in a tiara — although I haven’t had a go yet, so let’s not compare too soon.”

Etta, oh moxie-filled Etta! I hope they find a way to bring you to the sequels, too. Preferably using the golden lasso in those ways you’re thinking of. So very 40s Wondie, tee hee.

Wonder Woman is out today on digital, although the iTunes one will be released on September 4th (I’ve pre-ordered, obv). Blu-ray is out on September 19th.
