Birds of Prey Gets a Teaser Trailer

It’s hard to tell what exactly is happening with DC Comics movies. But another solid sign that stuff is indeed getting made is this quickie teaser trailer for Birds of Prey, the Harley Quinn follow-up movie. I am 100% in favor of doing a series of movies focusing on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. That’s solid moviemaking right there!

Those are our first glimpses at Huntress, Black Canary, Cassandra Cain, Black Mask and Zsasz, and they look good. Let us get our hopes up about Birds of Prey!

And hopefully we’ll get a Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy movie down the line!

I Want Black Panther to Win the Oscar for Best Picture

Black Panther was one of eight movies nominated for the Best Picture Oscar this morning, and some people out there across the internet don’t think it deserves the nomination. I’m here to ask them and you: so what? Can’t we all just rally around a superhero movie to win Best Picture, regardless of quality? The Oscars are largely a joke anyway. Why can’t we come together to get this superhero movie win?

I loved Black Panther when it came out, though I will admit that my praise has probably waned since. But it’s still a solid, enjoyable movie that had a major cultural impact.

And it’s the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture. Can’t that be enough? We all love superhero movie. We all love Marvel Studios movies. And none of us really super care about the Oscars. Can we not all just come together and root for the superhero movie to get the win?

Cast aside your demands that the Oscar for Best Picture truly go to the best movie from 2018. Are any of the eight nominees really the best movie? Are any of the front runners really so worthy of the award that they have to win? Surely Black Panther is better than at least some of them. It’s better than Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody, surely.

And it’s not like the Oscars aren’t rigged or anything. It’s not like they’re some great noble event where only the purest and most worthy films are awarded. It’s all just a bunch of Academy idiots who don’t see all the movies voting on them anyway. The Oscars aren’t real.

So as comic book fans and superhero movie fans, let us set aside our lofty expectations for the purity of the Oscars and root for Black Panther to win big!

Though if I’m being honest, I’d probably go with BlacKkKlansmen to win Best Picture, and I haven’t seen Roma, A Star is Born or The Favourite yet. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for Best Animated Feature for sure, but when it doesn’t win, then I’ll be vindicated in my claim that the Oscars aren’t real.

Let’s See That Great Into the Spider-Verse Scene in LEGO!

Remember that scene in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse where Miles Morales truly embraces his new Spider-Man persona? Set to that awesome “What’s Up Danger?” song by Blackway & Black Caviar? Of course you do!

Well the fine folks at Huxley Burg Studios have recreated it in LEGO form!

And if you don’t remember that scene at all, it’s conveniently available on YouTube! How’s that for nifty?

That’ll have to tide us over until Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out on DVD one of these days.

Unbreakable Was Honestly One of My Favorites

Back in the day, Unbreakable was one of my favorite M. Night Shyamalan films! Then I re-watched it the other day in the build-up to Glass, and it still holds up pretty well. Maybe not as good as it did back in the day, but it’s still fun.

Excellent work, Honest Trailers people! I’m going to see Glass tonight, and I hope that’s good, too! Mostly I need to stop being so old. Who knew it would take more than a decade to get that Unbreakable sequel we all wanted back in the day?

John Wick 3 Looks Really Cool

I was late to the John Wick party when it first came out. I didn’t even see John Wick 2 in theaters! I dealt with those problems, and now I’m definitely ready for John Wick 3: Parabellum.

And yeah, it looks neat! Looks just like a solid John Wick threequel. Should be another action-packed thrill ride, like the other two. Hooray for movies!
