Razorfist: The Comic Film Crash Has Begun

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dlk3-NtOFkk I agree with Razorfist in practice if not in principle. I'll explain. Certainly, Marvel's time at the top of the heap is likely over and done with. Robert Downey and Chris Evans were the primary stars of Phase III. Without them and their characters, all continuity with the Thanos years ends. For ten years everyone has been told that Kevin Fiege is the indispensable man at Marvel. But given how weak this year's slate has been and the...

Well, Gencon Is Shot

You wouldn't see that this year. CORRECTED The collection of virtue signaling SJW twat waffles that run Gencon have announced that masks will now be required at the biggest tabletop gaming convention in the world. Gencon was owned by TSR for years, so it got snapped up by WotC with everything else when Lorraine Williams finally augered that company into the ground. When GamerGate blew up big Gencon greedily grasped at the opportunity for progressive pants wetting by making Anita (I can't tell...

The Dark Herald Recommends The Suicide Squad

I hate to break this to you but it’s a good movie. Yeah, I know James Gunn is a vomitable little twat.  And no one will ever look at John Cena the same way again after his Chinese hostage video.  That’s irrelevant.  This review is about Suicide Squad itself. This discussion will be reasonably spoiler-free.  I’ll do another one later in the week where I go into spoilers. This is easily the best DC Comics movie.  I was going to caveat that and say since the Dark...

Life Hack to Improve Your Life

Don't watch life hack videos. That's really good advice and is a more useful life hack than you will see on any current year life hack video. There was a time, when YouTube was quite a lot newer, that there was some effort put into these things. They were fun and clever and occasionally even worth trying. Life hacks were exercises in lateral thinking. You might or might not be coming up with a better approach to something but...

The Star Wars Hotel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0e8v2G6Lzo Dark Herald: Do you want to stay with your entire family locked in a building and sleeping altogether in a room the size of walk-in closet for three days and two nights? Beloved Readers: Fuck no! What’s wrong with you? DH (enticing lilt to his voice): But you get to LARP Star Wars the w-h-o-l-e  t-i-m-e… BR: We’ve begged you to get your meds adjusted. DH: I haven’t taken those in years. And what if I told you, you could do all that and...

The Disney Civil War Part II

Something that was rattling around in my bean over the weekend was the tone of Disney's reply to Scarlet Johansson’s lawsuit. The tone reflected genuine aggrievement.  As if matters had been settled, an agreement had been reached and then Johansson went ahead and sued anyway.  Everyone in Hollywood was going on about how shocked everyone else felt by this lawsuit because stars as big as Johansson don’t have to do this. ScarJo is repped by Bryan Lourd. Let me elaborate on that, she personally,...

Alex Kurtzman’s Contract is Extended!!!

The poster-child for failing upwards has done it again. Alex Kurtzman’s contract has been extended until 2026 (two years early) and is being paid $150 million to continue doing to Star Trek what Jack the Ripper did to the sex workers in White Chapel.  There were rumors flying around last week, which I didn’t report on because I couldn’t quite believe it.  Although, this became a worrying possibility when Kurtzman hijacked Strange New Worlds away from Akiva Goldman. Only Chris Chibnall has destroyed...
