Blogs and Ends: What’s Wrecked Now?

What a fun game Hollyweird has given us with, “What’s Wrecked Now?”  And this time it’s not just limited to Hollyweird, Tokyo is included too. FIRST Bedrock Do you have warm memories of The Flintstones?  You do?  Yeah, Hollywood found about them.  They will soon be eternally tainted by the ever upwardly failing Elizabeth Banks.  Banks didn’t use to be that much of an SJW.  Or at least she was no worse than any of the other THOTs of Tinsel Town.   But that all seemed to change when her...

The Final Nail in DC Cinematic Coffin

Walter Hamada was clearly hired in a panic.   He was a producer at Warner’s subsidiary New Line Cinema for ten years.  His track record there wasn’t terrible.  That said it wasn’t exceptional either.  He oversaw a string of horror films in the 2010s.  The Conjuring, Conjuring 2, and Annabelle and the like. As you can see from this list Hamada was basically producing the same film over and over again.  Sort of like the Shannon Tweed films in the 1990s that had names like Indecent...

D+1: We’ve Secured the Beachhead

Arktoons had a spectacular launch yesterday. Better than could be hoped for. I, like a lot of you, was already familiar with Arkhaven's titles. However, this format is so much more convenient than pamphlets. I knew roughly what to expect but I hadn't had a chance to really explore it before now. This is a lot more than I ever thought it would be and I was pretty optimistic about it before the launch. Throne of Bones was...

Obligatory Oscar Post

The most boring night on television hit an all-time low of 9 million viewers.  In truth, I’m surprised it was that many.  I suspect it’s mostly very old liberals who are still watching it.  The Joe Bidens still left in America are the Oscars' primary audience.  The 18–49-year-old market has collapsed completely, dropping by 64%.  Which will knee-cap the ad money that ABC can charge for this abortion next year.  BTW they are stuck with the Oscars until 2028. Another win for Disney! While I haven’t...

The Sons of Apollo – The Aspirational Heroes

This is the second of my series on superhero archetypes. When I look back on the most challenging and difficult events of my life and do so rationally, I know that Marine Corps Bootcamp should not be anywhere on that list.  I was never in danger of being killed (in any serious way).  I knew where my next meal was coming from.  I had no children to worry about. And my money worries were non-existent because there was no pay until the end...

Gina Carano Has Been Politically Rehabilitated

Or at least I assume she has been. The former Star Wars actress and political exile appears to have been restored to favor by Dear Leader Mickey. Her episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls has been fished out of the Memory Hole and will soon be streaming on Disney Plus. Perhaps more significantly, Cara Dune action figures are for sale at Walmart again. Disney is making no official announcements because they are in no position to do so. All of the...

Do Better? We Done That At Arkhaven

Normally, I really couldn't care less about the ComicsGate guys. There is way too many of them that virtue signal to the Left. And EVS is a known backstabber. That said, there are exceptions. I did like Rippa's fairly epic take down of Captain Sammy's rant at the end of Falcon and the Winter Solider. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zop4xi7fx10 UPDATE: The Critical Drinker watched the whole thing for me. I deeply appreciate it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e0B_7es0_g

China Gives a Thumbs Down to Shang-Chi

As I predicted, they hate it on general principle. For those not in the know, The Global Times (.cn) is China’s international online daily tabloid.  It is published under the auspices of the People’s Daily which is, shall we say, sensitive to the desires of the Communist Party. This is not to say that it doesn’t have a certain degree of journalistic freedom, (at this point arguably a lot more than is in the US media).  At least you know the monster you are dealing with in...

The Dark Herald Recommends: Resident Alien

Just the right amount of cringe. It’s almost impossible to do. Remember when SyFy Channel was The Sci-Fi Channel and it didn’t suck?  No, I’m not joking there really was a time that that was a thing.  I admit you have to go back a ways to find that time.  Fifteen years is a decent medium for when the Sci-Fi channel was at its peak.  On Friday nights you would have Battlestar Galactica (when it didn’t suck), Doctor Who (when it really didn’t suck), and...
