ZULU

Caught this on 35mm last night and you know what, still a banger. Its almost a miracle such a weirdly out-and-proud anticolonial, antiwar could be made on the British crown no less in its time. Stands the test of time better than most, and the print was lush.

Disney part funded the (woeful) 1992 remake of Ultraman, rebranded as The Ultimate Hero, and whats more Marvel are doing a series of comic book reimagining's of the 60's-70's Ultra series.

So yes, my favourite cape franchise is technically part of the MCU too. I hand my snob card in with shame.

Have they tried turning them off and on again?

Corralling any genre (but let's pick on Marvel, because it's on topic) behind "not for you, this" signage surely only plays into Scorsese's notion that they're "not cinema".


Entirely in Marties defense, thats an often misrepresented air quote that completely cuts out the nuance of his take.

From NYT 2019:
"It [Cinema] was about confronting the unexpected on the screen and in the life it dramatized and interpreted, and enlarging the sense of what was possible in the art form-
Cinema is an art form that brings you the unexpected. In superhero movies, nothing is at risk."

Which, I think considering we (and the entire internet) has this debate every 2 months or so, I think indicates he was profoundly on the button.

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE ....
A multiversal double, with one being among the most exocentrically joyous, fun and charming movies I'm likely to see all year filled with exquisite action sequences and tight (if at times over edited) choreography, endearing performances, and a  weirdly layered pay off to oft egged familial trauma narrative.


Really want to see that film! Everything you say confirms I should. Buckaroo Banzai as a wuxia.

Its wonderful, so so so wonderful.

I enjoyed Dr Strange, but then I like Sam Raimi, Marvel and Marvel movies (in that order). If you don't like those, then I'm not sure why you'd stump up your hard earned cash for a ticket.

In my defence I haven't seen the last, what, five? I only saw this one in the vein hope some of the Raimicore would make it into the finished piece. It didn't, so was a suitable DNF. I don't think anyone can doubt these are made by committee at this point, none of the auteur directors hallmarks made it into the finished film. A real shame, as I did have SOME hopes for this one.

I'm not sure why you'd stump up your hard earned cash for a ticket.

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE & DOCTOR STRANGE AND THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

And the other was the latest MCU movie. Which shite, and I'll leave it at that.

Really not feeling THOUGHT BUBBLE this year, and it might actually be the first year I actively choose not to go. The line up of A list creators just leaves me a bit cold, and is giving me the uncomfortable feeling it'll be a repeat of the Gerard Way situation from a few years back.

Chillercon in a few weeks, on the other hand, looks stacked and is probably my most anticipated micro-convention of the year. Strange times.

The omnibus editions of Matt Wagners GRENDEL are being reprinted from June onwards. Been intending to read this for years seeing as Colin loves it so, and I can vibe with a weirdo take on the Fantomas type superfiend.

Sometimes you just gotta turn up for that pay cheque.

Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a delight, I still catch myself playing the soundtrack on occasion.

Cancel cultural claims it's latest victim.

Jokes aside, the thread was long overdue a detox for all who frequented it (including myself among that number) and though I certainly don't condemn starting another one mayhaps give it sometime to simmer first.

Turning Red on Disney+. Wow. Brilliant stuff. Never thought I'd see the day when there was a Disney Pixar movie about a 13-year-old girl getting her first period.

Absolutely staggering that a Disney weary cynic such as myself thought TURNING RED was an unequivocal delight. More of this, less legacy milking corpos.

I never actually watched the show, having read the comics several times over. Maybe I should fix that.
