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.

I rarely commit to the prog threads anymore because, well, everyone else puts it so much more succinctly than I do. But by goddamn has this latest run of THE ORDER been the mutts nuts.

Go Nagais DEVILMAN hits even harder on its second read than it did on the first. People like to joke about how daft the time travel arc was (rightly so, it is) but its a weird blip on one of the best comic runs ever made. Absolutely not for the faint hearted, hedonistic in ways western comics could never get away with at the time wrapped up in the best first/final chapter narrative diopter out there.

At time misery porn, at times bizarro pulp nonsense, indisputably Go Nagai.

THE GODFATHER PART II

My white whale. An inexcusable blind spot in my cultural experience, and seeing the 4K remaster of the first movie last week was a damn fine primer to finally break into the sequels.

Yeah. Not much more to add that hasn't been said a billion times already. Art.

It's really telling when even Japan is willing to step up and enforce trade and economic sanctions, historically (since the end of t'war, of course) the most "neutral" of economic superpowers putting their neck out for once.

Truly what we're seeing are changing times unfolding at a rapid pace, and at its heart a bunch of innocent folks. Civilians just wanting to go about their life, and soldiers who'd (mostly) rather be home with their families. Putin has nothing to gain here beyond making the rest of the world think for even a second he doesn't have a micro-penis. Sad stuff.

Been sometime since we heard from out man, hope he's doing well all things considered.
