As long as it's being developed in Hell or not. Two years though, there could be a nuclear war and survivors huddling in mega cities ruled by fascists overlords by then.

The Mummy 2017-missing just about everything that re-incarnated (oh! see what i did there!) the franchise in the early twoothies. It was okay but not exactly stellar. No real humour and a cast that seemed a bit lost. Too many distractions (Aussie flap-mouth Russell Crowe as Jekyll and Hyde, okay I suppose, he didn't seem to be acting during the Hyde parts) ,  the mummy herself was the best thing in it but, as she spent alot of time in a box or chained she was a bit of a loss. Not terrible but hardly scary and too desperate to make it as a monster franchise. Tom Cruise  and the others were alright.

Only read Dredd so far and one panel in it made it entirely worthwhile the one with Dreddy explaining how chrono-jumpers always go futsie -an absolute masterpiece for me and a nice tip of a hat to Bolland and Bisley blocks in the background.

So sad to hear of Tom Petty's passing. Such a great musician and songwriter.  :'( :'( :'(

Batman-Harley Quinn. Don't bother. It really is awful. They can't decide whether it's a parody or a adult themed ride. Dire pacing, two rubbish musical bits that warble on far too long (I'll never be able to think of Blondie's Hanging on the Telephone song ever again without this dire version in my head also) ,  and a plot micron thin.

An abysmal waste of this character, leering backside shots, fart jokes and an appearance by Swamp Thing that's more like something out of Monty Python only not funny.

There's much better animated DC films than this. All of them I suspect.

Looks great. Hellboy worked for me as I felt  they stuck fairly close to the original material and inspiration.

And look.

lookin' forward to more on this.

A visit to that Lahndahn tahn and I'm in Forbidden Planet. I got some DC stuff as i haven't read any for ages  Batman Detective Comic 957 and Dark Nights Metal 1 and Batman 29. (Also BPRD cos i always enjoy it despite it being- big  monster(s) that kills almost everyone then some one turns up who can blast it.)

DC were good but in BDC 957 Bats hardly appears it concerns a vigilante (quick phone Justice dept Judge Pal) called um,Spoiler.... The best was Batman 29 "The War of Jokes and Riddles 4" -where Bruce Wayne has dinner with all his enemies. This unusual premise worked very well and great art helped.

Metal 1...cost a bomb as I picked up foolishly the mucho expenso alt-cover copy (doh!), but stuck with it anyway when I realised my error. The beginning did not bode well a gladiatorial contest ending in the heroes (Justice League I think Bats, Supes, WW, Cyborg,Flash, Aqua and GL) becoming a *gasp*transformer?

Anyway things improved but Snyder does love to leap around the universe with none of those pesky establishing shots or CAPS explaining like alot of comic book writers do. this can be confusing to decrepit readers like myself.

anyway basically there;s a big bad on the way and his name is Pusscat! (no actually it's Barbatos)

Not terrible with lush Capullo art but is it worth 8.99? Not for this reader.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 for once no diminishing returns that sequels sometime are, but another great fun movie -some rude-ish bits but nothing too untoward.  And has some amusing lines "You shouldn't have killed my Mom and squished my Walkman." for one. And Rocket rules!
Yup, re-watched Guardians 2 on blu last night. The "700 Jumps?!" scene is still an absolute laugh riot.

Totally! But the beginning had me hooked with Mr Blue Sky playing against a interdimensional cosmic horror battle.

An impulse buy of Eberron-Infestations comic-a really nice read but only two issues. basically Mythos style beastie invades a D&D land. Fun characters but based I think on Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson.  I enjoyed it though.
