My favorite Pixar movie is The Incredibles, for reasons that should be obvious if you’re reading my blog. So of course I was excited to see the first teaser trailer for Incredibles 2! Which is definitely happening!
And if that wasn’t enough Incredibles for you to love, how about the How Incredibles Should Have Ended video? At least these parody videos are still pure and unburdened by controversy and horribleness!
This one was kind of garbage though. Quality initial joke, for how the movie should have ended. But then it falls back on some Batman/Superman cafe thing with Elastigirl that I just don’t get or remember. I dunno. I’m probably in the minority here, but I just don’t think cutting to these Batman/Superman cafe scenes are as funny or witty as the creators think. Especially when it’s implied that, like, Superman slept with Mr. Incredibles’ wife? That’s just disrespectful.
Are you watching Justice League Action? I’m not. But they had some fun the other day with voice actor Mark Hamill.
I hope Hamill enjoys his geek legend status. That guy is pretty much beloved by everyone! And his Star Wars movie resurgence has made him cooler and more popular than ever! Three cheers for Mark Hamill!
CGP Grey is a pretty popular and intelligent YouTube personality, but he doesn’t release very often. When he does, it’s pretty great…except this time he’s talking about death. That’s pretty dark, man.
Oh wait, he’s talking about immortality! That’s a little more exciting!
I haven’t seen a new episode of The Simpsons in a very long time. I assume that’s probably the case for most of us. But this weekend is giving me cause to watch because Morgan Spurlock has apparently made an hour-long sports documentary about that classic episode Homer at the Bat. It’s the one about softball with all the baseball guest stars!
I love this kind of thing. Making sports mockumentaries about TV shows and movies. Have you ever seen the Space Jam episode of 30 for 30? Hilarious!
And, of course, I can’t leave you with reminders of Homer at the Bat without also linking that great end credits song!
Welcome to October, everybody! It’s the spookiest month of the year, and Halloween is my favorite holiday! Every year, I like to do some spooky and horror-themed lists, and this week is about one of my favorites: bats! Those flying foxes are my favorite animal. And not just because Batman is one of the most famous superheroes of all time.
Bats are cool. There’s no doubt about it. But what can you do when Batman already looms large over the world of superheroes? How do you introduce any other bat-themed characters without them being overshadowed by Batman? The answer is apparently that you don’t! There aren’t very many out there, and most of them are some kind of parody of Batman! But I searched and found six pretty cool bat-themed heroes and villains that aren’t connected to that one really well known guy!
