  1. Got my review in! If anything comes up for a bonus, I'll run it by as well.
  2. Watched my movie last night so I should have a review in by day's end.
  3. Joker is getting a whole mess of social media criticism leading to Todd Phillips now banning press from the world premiere, which he's further getting blasted for since his whole "Sneaking an art movie in the backdoor of a comic movie." approach would theoretically hold up to criticism. Everyone I know who saw it on the festival circuit says it sucks, fwiw. I'll probably end up seeing it in theaters due to both my nerd curiousity and my desire for WB to do this kind of art focused approach with other DC properties and creative teams but yeesh this looks like a mess.
  4. For those who wanted the Daredevil: Born Again Artist's Edition, but couldn't justify the money or space, the Artisan Edition dropped this week and it's basically got all the art goods you want, just at a larger than usual but not original page art size for $50 USD instead of the $100-150 the full size Artist Edition's go for. Big recommendation. Seeing the overlay processes is particularly fun.
  5. My first choice isn't on Netflix anymore so I'm trying to think up an alternative. This is complicated because, as a Canuckian, I may not have the same Netflix options. Within the next hour or so I should have one for you. EDIT: Sent.
  6. I'm in. Haven't done this in a few years, very excited.
  7. Honestly even if Dark Knight: Golden Child sucks writing wise, I'll buy anything with Rafael Grampa's art. Dude is fantastic.
  8. Lower middle of the pack. I'll take it. Thanks for running this as always S.K.o.S. I have a great time every year even though my performance can rarely be described as 'great' to match. I'm curious: You using Excel to scorekeep? You may have gone into this prior but doing HR has got me really into spreadsheets.
  9. The HC is due out in December for $50 US MSRP. So around X-men #3 I think.
  10. I'm fine with a Batman sub out, though I do think it's a little soon after Superheavy it's always an interesting ride. Rich also reporting that the plan was to have Alfred's death to be a fakeout, but due to the response it's now going to be permanent (as much as these things ever are). Not a fan of that call, not least because of the implication that the two results are interchange in terms of story impact.
  11. They're both 12 issue minis, which in 2019 assures them 6 more issues than a lot of ongoings.
  12. Annihilation: Scourge coming in November. Matt Rosenberg writing, stars the Fantastic Four, Richard Rider Nova, Beta Ray Bill, and the Silver Surfer. I'm hyped.
  13. Honestly this isn't the stage of the game where I want to be going up the charts. SO CLOSE TO LAST! SO CLOSE!
  14. Honestly the problem they have is that the Anderson films ARE in the spirit of the Resident Evil games. Sure the characters get remixed and Milla gets tossed into the middle, but the games are buckwild meta plot and crazy visual monsters that turn toward even weirder sci-fi nonsense. RE 1/2 felt scary at the time because they were pretty tough on resource management and forced you to flee a lot. Gamers weren't used to that so there was genuine tension in playing that. After what? 25 years now? Other games have done that better (including late entry RE7) so the originals may have less scare value. But even if not, anyone who looks at the plot of the RE franchise and doesn't play them would have to admit Anderson's take is pretty accurate. There's a reason 4-6 leaned heavier into action with survival elements. Anyway, tl;dr I think a lot of the dissonance comes from the difference between playing as the lead in RE and watching a film with the same nonsense in play.
  15. Knocked out Final Girls by Riley Sager. It was solid. Good thriller qualities, an interesting premise, and did a great job pacing reveals to keep you guessing until the end. Probably 50 to 100 pages of...not padding exactly, but repetitious settings/scenarios. Like a TV budget film that only has five sets and has to work around that. Still a solid time and worth the read on the whole.
