    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)!
