    anyone seen roseanne barr and other assorted trumpflakes whinging about how her character got killed by opiods in the show (which is an amusing way to kill ker off, considering)?

    In a statement, Barr said this "lent an unnecessary, grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show."


    ...Isn't this the same show where she won the lottery and lived happily ever after, except she didn't cause in the final episode it turned out her husband died & the entire series was just her fantasising in order to escape reality

    So The Vampire Chronicles is (supposedly) coming to Hulu as a TV series, via paramount and anonymous content. I hadn't kept up with the news on this: paramount got the rights in early 2016 and I didn't expect it to actually happen, so this was actually announced this summer and I just found out.

    Anne Rice and her son Christopher are executive producers, and Christopher wrote the script, so there's a DAMN good chance this could be done right. The idea is that it's going to be faithful to the source material the way Game of Thrones is faithful to those books, which sounds WONDERFUL.

    I've read everything she's ever written and would fucking LOVE to see a faithful, long form Vampire Chronicles on the screen.

    Early word from a test screening of the new ‘Hellboy’ is that David Harbour is solid, but that the movie overall is garbage. Take it at face value of course...

    To be fair the original Hellboy movies were far better then they had any right to be, so i wasn't expecting much from this.

    I am of the age where this trailer has consumed more of my mind than perhaps it really should. Not under the impression anyone else in this space is in the same boat, but I'll continue anyway.



    When this project was announced it became clear to me that film was not actually going to try and articulate the central fantasies Pokémon is about. This trailer only further affirmed that for me. Instead, it's clear they're playing with the pieces from that world to do something different. There's lots of little deviations that indicate this to me. I will say that every reference to something in the Pokémon world that's outside the immediate apparent scope of the story I see here feels like just that, a reference, nothing more. Not a piece of the world, but a nostalgic call back to something we already know. These bits exist largely for our benefit, if not in idea than execution, they don't actually belong to this new world.

    Not sure this new thing they're making speaks to me particularly much and wonder if anyone that doesn't have a similar history thinks this remarkable at all. As that "new thing" is novel for this world, but it's less novel for the specific Hollywood culture that's actually producing this movie.

    It is a little jarring, but mainly as it's Ryan Reynolds. The guy has great comedic timing, but after deadpool all i can hear is....well deadpool. I'll still see it (i love me my pokemon)!

    It fucked me up too and I was in my late 20s. First it was Bambi's mom. Disney has scarred more people than Freddy, Michael and Jason combined.

    Can't forget the Baby Mine scene in Dumbo.

    I am excited for Seth Rogen as Pumba. I've only seen Billy Eichner in Parks and Rec so I'm not as familiar with him.

    Dumbo I saw once as a kid and I never wanted to see again. Thank you, Baby Mine. Disney is the ultimate evil.

    Speaking of evil: Aladdin is also coming out in 2019. Will Smith will play Genie. Nothing against Smith as a person or an actor but this is BLASPHEMY. I would not want to be him right now.

    But seriously, where is his penis? I see the fuzz outline and it's just not clicking for me. I really think he needs shorts or something.

    Okay...I might be wrong, but they’re CLEARLY trying to swing the furry demographic there, right?

    That’s the closest to a rational reason for this design that I could imagine. Like...A straight up CGI Sonic ripped from one of the recent games would look more visually appealing than this. At least that wouldn’t be spiked-hair deep into the uncanny valley. I’m actually a little afraid of the full reveal.

    Can you imagine if Detective Pikachu featured a distinctly human-looking anthropomorphic Pikachu? Good god.
