Warner Bros. is developing a Lobo movie n Michael Bay may be helming it.

Lobo was born on the utopian planet of Czarnia. Unfortunately for them, the foul-mouth brawler’s idea of a perfect world is one covered in bruises and blood. He wiped out his entire civilization and made himself the last of his people. Considering his name means “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it” in his native tongue, perhaps they shouldn’t have been too surprised. Lobo took his predilection for murder and mayhem along with his rocket-fueled motorcycle and went on to become the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.

Lobo looks out for himself first and foremost, and is never without a plan to cash in at other people’s expense. Though he’s glad to use weapons, Lobo doesn’t really need them. His super-strength means his fists are made for bashing. Couple that with his advanced healing powers and unquenchable thirst for blood, and he’s proven to be an incredibly difficult foe to stop—unless you can trick him into entering into a deal. Mercenary or not, Lobo always keeps his word…though he’s not above getting creative in his interpretation of “true to his promise.” As an intergalactic bounty hunter, Lobo’s gigs take him all over the universe, but he never lingers for long because there’s always someone or something else to apprehend, preferably as painfully as possible. DC

You know, I think these studios need to take a break from all of these superhero movies. Mind you, the comic book was funny in a subversive way.

The biggest news of the past week, well outside of showing the trailers for a slew of movies that everyone is dying to see…is



Favorite Super Bowl Trailers


I watched Cloverfield Paradox tonight and it really is worth your time. It may make you start questioning where this falls in the Cloverfield timeline, but stop thinking about that. It is horror, suspense-filled, and jaw-dropping! Believe me, when I tell you that you will not regret watching it at home, because I do not think it wist to watch as you commute.

I am counting down to the second season of Westworld! One of the best shows of last year, hands down!

One last bit and it is only if you love Deadpool, you should have followed him on Twitter as he watched the Super Bowl. Check it out here.

Recap: Season Finale of Marvel’s Runaways

This show is actually one of my faves of the Fall 2017 shows. Why? Well, unlike the Gifted (which was also renewed for a second season), this show is about a group of kids who have banded together after witnessing something that changes their lives forever. Being a teen is tough, but when you throw in the fact that your parents are not the people you thought they were…well, life gets very interesting. They cannot trust anyone, but one another and as a result they end up becoming a family of their own. It has it’s dark moments, but then there are those genuine teen moments of unrequited love, teen angst, and finding your place in the grande scheme of things. It also has a dinosaur and well that just makes me love the show anymore.

By the last episode, lines have been drawn. The Runaways have faced off with their parents, but with Jonah in the mix things go awry. Karolina saves her friends and once they have rallied, they rescue her from the clutches of the Scientology like cult that Karolina’s parents helm. Now, like the kids, the parents realize that their kids are over their heads. So, they do what they have to do to keep them safe and as far as away from Jonah as possible. What happens is someone calls the police on them and blame them for the death of a runaway. This forces the kids to go on the run, where will they end up? Will their parents be able to protect them? Will they reunite with their parents? Will Jonah go down in flames or will that thing that is lurking under the bedrock of LA come out and play? Will the sparks continue for Karolina and Nico? Will it continue for Gert and Chase? Will the dinosaur continue to get daily sustenance before he turns?

Can’t wait to see the answers to my questions play out in season 2.

If you have not given this show a shot, please do so. It is a nice break from the normal superhero shows.





Movie to Watch in 2018…The New Mutants

UPDATE – The movie was pushed to 2019!

The reason Marvel far exceeds DC in the Movies is that Marvel tries different genres. From the politically charged Winter Soldier to the funny Guardians of the Galaxy, it touches as many genres it can and succeeds more than it falters.

The New Mutants is basically a horror movie. In it, five young mutants are just discovering their abilities while being held in a secret facility against their will. They must fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.

It is one of the movies on my “Must Watch” list. I’ll highlight a new movie every day.

News You May Have Missed…

If you are a politically savvy adult, it was an interesting week.

But, let’s focus on some intriguing and interesting news that may shape what you will be looking forward to in entertainment in the foreseeable future.

Marvel fans, prepare yourself for the continued onslaught of movies in the Marvel Movie Universe. Vanity Fair recently interviewed the man with the plan, Kevin Feige, and we learned the following:

“Both Iger and Feige hinted at how the franchise (whose studio has rights to 7,000 characters) will expand into different realms, with James Gunn working in close collaboration to possibly spin off some characters from the extraterrestrial world of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is “22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before—intentionally,” Feige said.”

Who will be next? What will the stories entail? Does Disney’s re-engaging in talks with 21st Century Fox change these plans…like add more to the docket? Or does the docket include some of the properties owned by 21st Century Fox? We shall see.

The Anime that introduced me to Anime, Cowboy Bebop, will be adapted into a live action show by Tomorrow Studios.  Honestly, I understand why you would want to adapt it, but you will not get the feel of the show with an American adaptation. Casting should be interesting. But, I think the corgi from Dirk Gently should be perfect as Ein! For more about this adaptation, go to Deadline.

It took a year, but Disney’s live action version of Mulan has found it’s Mulan! Chinese actress Liu Yifei will portray the brave warrior. THR.

Margot Robbie is working on a standalone Harley Quinn movie that has nothing to do with any of the other slated movies that revolve around Harley. THR.

Kevin Williamson’s psychological thriller Tell Me a Story to series, has found a home on CBS All Access. The show is based on a Spanish series by Marcos Osorio Vital. It takes place in present-day New York City. It will turn classic fairy tales into dark tales of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. TVGuide.

Stranger Things was renewed for a third season! Netflix.

Netflix has also picked up the untitled Sabrina the Teenage Witch series that revolves around Archie Comics’ The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is a horror/supernatural series. I picked up volume one at New York Comic Con and I loved it and I am now very intrigued at what this adaptation will look like.

Casting News:


Popular Disney actress Dove Cameron has joined ABC’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Titans has it’s Robin. Warner Bros. released the first image of Brenton Thwaites as the Boy Wonder. The show follows Dick Grayson as he tries to corral and lead a young group of Superheroes. The live action series will debut in 2018 on the WB.To view the image, click on EW.

Saïd Taghmaoui, from Wonder Woman, has left FX’s Legion before the upcoming second season, but FX stated that the character was recast. He was supposed to portray the Shadow King. Variety.

Good Omens

Have a great week!

News You May Have Missed…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, but now we are back to the day to day of life.

To help you get through your Monday, we got a bit of a news recap for you that will help you as you chat with your colleagues, friends, and family.

Biggest TV news bite, well for me, is that our beloved man who saved Rick-than turned nutty-turned zen Kung Fu master-turned angry with the world Morgan from the Walking Dead is moving to Fear the Walking Dead. Lennie James, who portrays Morgan, will join new cast members Jenna Elfman (Dharma and Greg) and Garret Dillahunt (The Gifted) in the 4th season of Fear the Walking Dead. Production of the 4th season will commence on Monday in Texas.

If you are a fan of Lennie James, you can follow him on his journey to the new show:


We have our first teaser for A Discovery of Witches:

Will you watch?

If you do not know of the first book in the Lost Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness, here is a bit from From Publishers Weekly:

In Harkness’s lively debut, witches, vampires, and demons outnumber humans at Oxford’s Bodleian Library, where witch and Yale historian Diana Bishop discovers an enchanted manuscript, attracting the attention of 1,500-year-old vampire Matthew Clairmont. The orphaned daughter of two powerful witches, Bishop prefers intellect, but relies on magic when her discovery of a palimpsest documenting the origin of supernatural species releases an assortment of undead who threaten, stalk, and harass her. Against all occult social propriety, Bishop turns for protection to tall, dark, bloodsucking man-about-town Clairmont. Their research raises questions of evolution and extinction among the living dead, and their romance awakens centuries-old enmities.

Jude Law is just making the rounds. Last time, we learned he is our new Dumbledore (well, a much younger one) in the Fantastic Beasts sequel. Now, we learn that he is in talks to play Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, a mentor to Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Law could join Rogue One’s Ben Mendelsohn, who will play the bad guy in the 90’s era Marvel movie. (Variety)

We got our first peek of Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom and it’s adorable!


Baby Raptors and Chris Pratt. It is on my list of movies to watch in 2018. They better not disappoint.

So, as I continue to take my time with the Punisher, which is great…but so dark and bloody. I decided to watch Marvel’s Runaways on Hulu. It is interesting, because I really do not know the backstory of the characters and it is not based in  universe I am well-versed in, I find it refreshing. Even though we only find out that two of the characters have powers, it is the dynamic between the kids that is intriguing. These are kids that know each other well because their parents are close (why they are close is the kicker), but their friendships fell apart after a friend of their passed away. Most of the Marvel stories we know of are based in New York State or in D.C. This is the first the revels in the warmth and privilege of the west coast. It will be interesting to see how this story plays out.

Did you watch TV this past week? If yes, what was your highlight?

Mine was Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Why? Well, our mad cap detective, Dirk, is seriously in the dumps about how this case is going and as a viewer…it kind of takes you aback. He has always been this super positive guy and in this moment of time he is as lost as we are. It got so bad, that even Todd just has to give up on his friend so he can attempt to save his sister, Amanda. However, everything falls apart for Amanda and Todd. They are in the middle of a war in a Fairy Tale land and all they allies have died due to massive confusion, gun running, and Suzie being in town and deeming herself the new queen of this land. Their only hope maybe back in our dimension (Panto, Bart or Farah) or it may be…Dirk, who finally gets his shit together and solves the case. Now, we only have three episodes to see how this story resolves itself.

Mr. Robot was a close second and that is because we see the backroom machinations of the Puppetmaster, Whiterose. Also, we get clarity from Irving, of all people, as he puts things in perspective for Elliot. The most disconcerting part of the episode was that Angela is spiraling because she wants to believe Whiterose so much, that she cannot see that she was played…like everyone else. The only one that really gets this is Dom.

Third was Outlander. In last night’s episode, we spend the majority of the episode watching Claire try to survive on this island that she ended up on after jumping ship in the last episode. This type of storytelling, focusing on one character as they try to overcome whatever obstacle is before them, is what I love about this show. She suffers as she holds on to hope and when all hope is lost, she is saved by a nutty priest. Now, if you thought we were going to have to wait another episode to hopefully see Jamie and Claire reunite…you would be wrong. They reunited in the second half of the episode and with the help of the nutty priest and his Mamcita and that the ship that Jamie was on having issues, we also watch Fergus Fraser marry Marsali. Marsali may be warming up to Claire, but the real warming up happened later in the episode after Claire has some of Mr. Willoughby’s turtle soup. Beset with fever from an injury and tipsy from the alcohol in the soup, Claire becomes ravenous with passion and we get our frisky pair back and it was fun to watch. We fear that the price on Jamie’s head may be the cause for all the fun times to come to an end…and we only have two more episodes before we are stuck in a droughtlander.

The OMG moment on TV happened when Rosita used a launcher to kill a Savior and as his partner got away…Daryl plowed into her car! That’s how you give your group a fighting chance, unfortunately…the rest of the group in The Walking Dead is not on the same page.
