I think I like this poster more than I did the actual movie. Although they seem to have used the off-model Godzilla from the Godzilla vs the Thing poster art. Anyway, I had this piece leftover from last week do to my Imgur issues, since solved. Thanks, Imgur!
I hope everyone had a good weekend. I saw Logan, which is quite good. I wish I didn’t know the basic plot, since one character that is meant to have some mystery about her is known by almost everyone before they see the movie. I don’t know why people want to know stuff before they see the movie, but they clearly do. I mean, there was a trailer for the Alien knock-off Life and it just went on and on showing way too much of what happens in the film.
I saw Iron Fist on Netflix. The Trump presidency has really gotten the culture wars back in full swing. The show’s critics review is 16%, while the normal viewer review is 86%. Notably many of the professional reviewers used terms like mansplaining and stuff, and most went on about their issues with the main character being white. (Even though, you know, he is.) There are problems with the show, but it’s far closer to being 86% than 16%, that’s for sure. I can’t even imagine how exhausting it is to look at everything through a racial lens all the time. Can we just start calling these people out on being racists? I swear they are so obsessive on this stuff that they want to bring the one drop rule back.
I also had a one day, 50% off coupon on Half Price Books. So I got the fifth season of Venture Bros on Blu Ray. I hadn’t watched the show in a while, and I forgot how much I love it. The fact there is a sixth season to hunt down makes me happy, and I think they are signed for two more, although their seasons are very short now. Oh, and Netflix will put the new (by which I mean, latest) season of Archer up in a week or two. Good times.
