“I’m Rich.”

We’re really still going through with this, huh?

At this point, unless WONDER WOMAN is a miracle the DCEU as a meaningful feature franchise thing is basically all through with but the shouting. Yeah, it’ll come out, but it’ll be the new TRANSFORMERS i.e. a technical moneymaker that culturally exists as a punchline – not a great ending for such a storied stable of characters and ideas. For now, the big takeaway is that it looks like Batman is driving a robot (something they had him do in LEGO BATMAN as a joke about absurd Bat-vehicles) and that Amber Heard even looks good floating around in a goofy plastic body-stocking. Oh, well.

Mega Man, No es bueno.

A Spanish-language teaser has dropped for that MEGA MAN cartoon I feel like we all sort of forgot had been threatened awhile back; i.e. that one that reworks the character as a generic teen-superhero with Resting Dreamworks Face. It’s… not promising, to be charitable:

…Ooof. What’d they do to you, old friend?

Review: IRON FIST (Season 1)

I almost feel disingenuous putting “Season 1” up there, since it feels really unlikely (to say nothing of a bad idea) that Marvel’s first genuine full-blown misfire gets a second season – especially now that they’ve added PUNISHER to the docket.

As ever, remember that the full text review is over on Geek.com – the print version, for purposes of presentation, does in fact differ from the video version, which is not just a strict live-read.

Let’s Try Some PODCASTING

Trying something a little different here: Testing out the prospects for a podcast featuring me and my brother. Threw it up on YouTube to see what folks think in terms of numbers, feedback, etc – a “real” version (assuming it gets to that) would be an audio-only thing most likely.

Pretty free-form, we mainly end up discussing BATMAN V SUPERMAN, SPLIT, Disney movies, the 2017 Academy Awards and local Boston-area pseudo-celebrities. Like I said, a rough “pilot,” but hopefully it’ll give you an idea of what the dynamic would be like on a “regular” podcast. Had fun recording, hope it makes for a good listen – if you’d like to hear more, share this around and (if you haven’t already) please consider contributing to The MovieBob Patreon. Enjoy!
