A few months ago, when The Clone Conspiracy started, I wrote an article proclaiming my belief that Doctor Octopus should be given a new, sexier appearance. He was being cloned, after all, so why clone him in that old, fat body from back in the day?
Use the power of cloning to make an awesome, buffer Doc Ock!
Well, it looks like I can predict the future, because now Doctor Octopus looks awesome! Clone Conspiracy came to an end, but Doc Ock lives on as something even cooler.
I’ll save SPOILERS for after the jump! Join me and check out the badass new Otto Octavius!
I am a member of several prominent fandoms. I love me some geeky TV shows, movies, video games, comics and more. And like any good geek, I can get super into the lore and backstories of these franchises. Got a wiki wormhole with dozens of pages devoted to the secret connections of several minor supporting characters? I’m in! I love a good lore.
Don’t understand what I’m talking about? Comedian Patton Oswalt explains it pretty well in this stand-up clip. Lore is not just the main story, but all the deeper histories behind the characters and settings. Lore isn’t just Frodo and the One Ring, it’s everyone who came before and everything in the Simariliion. Lore isn’t just Tyrion, Daenerys and John Snow playing the Game of Thrones, it’s the history of the Night’s Watch, Bran the Builder, Robert’s Rebellion, The Tales of Dunk and Egg and more. Game of Thrones has great lore.
And now I’m going to share my favorite lores with you! I’ve loved a few over the years, ignored others. Feel free to share your own favorites in the comments!
The new Beauty and the Beast movie comes out this weekend, which means all our favorite parody Youtube accounts are covering the old Beauty and the Beast cartoon. I’m feeling kind of lazy in the middle of this snowstorm, so I only watched one of them.
Hooray Honest Trailers! They make that same old classic Stockholm Syndrome joke, but they put it to song, so that’s bully on them!
I’m sure the other parody videos are around the Internet somewhere…
What is the deal, people? Am I the only person watching The Walking Dead because I like all the characters and want to see them succeed? I watch the zombie show every week and I read a couple different reviews/recaps around the web, and I see a lot of comments and mentions that the only thing anybody cares about is seeing what gruesome main character death comes next.
Is that really why people watch The Walking Dead?!
I don’t know about you, but I watch The Walking Dead because I legitimately like the characters and want to see their stories in this zombie-infested post-apocalypse. I want to see them succeed. I want to see them defeat Negan and make this new Alexandria civilization work.
I like Rick, I like Carl, I like Michonne, I like Eugene, I like Rosita, I especially like Tara and Father Gabriel. Heck, I even like Tobin, that one remaining recognizable Alexandria resident.
I was very disappointed when they randomly killed Denise and Olivia.
Maybe I’m some kind of outlier here, but I honestly don’t want to see any of the main or supporting characters killed by zombies anytime soon. The fewer gruesome deaths the better, as far as I’m concerned. I just want them to tell the story at hand. The drama of reforging civilization with this specific group of interesting people is far more interesting to me.
Maybe it’s just me.
I’m a huge Edgar Wright fan! And at long last, the director will be delivering his new movie, Baby Driver! This is his first flick in years, after he had a falling out with Marvel over Ant-Man. Still would have loved to see his Ant-Man.
There are two Baby Driver trailers to share, both different enough in tone and footage that it’s worth sharing both!
And then there’s the international trailer!
Good, right? These seem pretty fun! Lots of action, music, snappy dialogue; quality Edgar Wright hallmarks.
Baby Driver comes out later this year, and it’s bound to be a blast!
