I just finished it. It’s perfect.

Paramount and Bad Robot announced they're going to do a live-action adaption of Your Name.
I haven't seen it, but it hasn't even been out that long. I'm already skeptical about this. :lol:

^ The cynic in me says they're doing it partly because transgender issues are so hot right now in American politics. Body swapping and body morphing are fairly common in Japanese pop culture, not so much in American pop culture, so I suspect that will become the focus and as such will be handled poorly. Finding your soulmate across space and time, which is the real point of Your Name. (and most of the rest of director Makoto Shinkai's work)? Nah. The Lake House ruined that for us.

I watched the first two episodes of Star Trek Discovery.
Much like when I watched the first J.J.Abrams Star Trek, I have no desire to watch any more.

It's mediocre sci-fi and a terrible 'Star Trek' show.

^ I enjoyed it, at least enough to want to watch again. But I REALLY like Sonequa Martin Green. Still, it reminds me a bit of the "updated" versions of Morning Musume songs. All those extra funky beats AT BEST just add superfluous cruft to a song that demonstrably doesn't need it, and at worst ruin the core of what made the song great to begin with. Abramseque lens flares and crazy angles are the same. Trek doesn't need gimmicks like that to be entertaining, as evinced by The Orville.

I recently discovered that Disney X D has a late night programming block that is essentially YouTube on television, with a dash of G4tv. Content consists of let's plays on TV (one show is literally just videos from YouTube cut up for TV), e-sports, drone races, IGN, and sometimes geeky/video game docuseries.

It's weird. I mean it makes sense that they'd want to profit more from owning Maker Studios, but it's still weird swapping the channel and seeing jacksepticeye's face in the same place my dad watches his football.

Maker Studios have their own channels (e.g., Maker, Polaris+) on Sling TV. Or at least they used to, when I had that service. I don't know anymore.

If you want more weirdness of the same kind, check out Adult Swim's streams…

What if Game of Thrones were anime?

I just finished watching American Vandal on Netflix. It's pretty damn good, or really addictive, at least. It's a mockumentary about an investigation into a vandalism at a school, where dicks were spray-painted on the teachers' cars... which sounds pretty dumb but I thought it's a good show. I started watching it because two of my close friends were obsessed. :lol:

Marvel mutants… in a horror movie?



Spoiler: show
This is Fox's cinematic universe, for the X-Men franchise and all of their associated characters. As opposed to Disney's cinematic universe, for the Avengers franchise and all of their associated characters. Just FYI.

In the comics, the New Mutants were the first "junior" class/team at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, back in the '80s and early '90s, after the original X-Men from the '60s and '70s grew up and became full-time adventurers. To put it in context that H!P fans will understand, the New Mutants were to the X-Men as the H!P Kids were to Morning Musume.

The five members of the New Mutants depicted in this movie are, from 1:02 to 1:09: Illyana Rasputin (Magik), Roberto da Costa (Sunspot), Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane), Danielle Moonstar (Mirage), and Sam Guthrie (Cannonball). You can also probably guess who's who just by matching the character names to the appropriately ethnic cast members. The X-Men and the New Mutants were doing the "diversity" thing decades ago; Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the whole concept of mutants in the Marvel Universe as a parable for racism in America, and then Chris Claremont expanded it to cover immigration, multiculturalism, homosexuality, and the AIDS epidemic. And yes, that's actress Maisie Williams as Rahne.

Anyhow, this movie supposedly is based on the Demon Bear storyline from The New Mutants #18–20, circa 1984. (Note Dani's necklace at 0:56 and 1:07.) I can see how they'd make a horror movie out of that source material. Of course, many of Fox's adaptations of the X-Men franchise have been rather loose, sometimes verging on unrecognizable to long-time fans of the comics, so I can only guess at the details of this movie. But if it turns out to be as good as Deadpool, Logan, and Legion, then I don't mind them taking some liberties.

Sorry for expounding like this, I'm sure most of you couldn't care less, but this is the stuff I grew up with. The X-Men and New Mutants were my jam in the '80s, and it makes me a little giddy to see them finally adapted like this.
