Birds Of Prey V. The Suicide Squad: Dawn Of Posters

WB released some tidbits about Birds Of Prey & The Suicide Squad. I’ll get to them, but this is merely an excuse to write about various DC Comics things in the backlog! I know you’re only coming here for my Gotham cold takes anyway.

DuckTales Season Finale Two, Woo-oo!

After Disney gave us a daily dose of DuckTales in midsummer, they’re back to a similar schedule for the remainder of its second season. One episode a day is an ideal rate for me; I just wish it was more consistent. Big gaps between seasons may be necessary, but big gaps within a season are frustrating. It is an improvement from it taking over a year to finish season one. This one wrapped up moderately sooner. Now let’s get to spoiling the remainder! Woo-oo! Duck out now if you’ve not seen ’em.

She-Ra “Season 3” Was Worth The Wait

It seems like just yesterday I was critiquing Agents of SHIELD’s sixth season, & now we’re already on the new season of She-Ra & The Princesses of Power. (Oh wow, that was only just yesterday!) This is billed as season three, but it’s really the back half of season two. The missing six episodes finally arrived! I was able to comfortably watch them all in a single sitting. That also means I can get a review out quicker than the first season. (It would’ve been even faster had the SHIELD finale not gotten in the way.) A proportionate amount of SPOILERS follow.

I’ve read some people saying this is an improvement over the meandering season two because it’s more concise & dynamic. That’s because it’s the pay off to that set-up that should’ve never been released separately! (It doesn’t feel organic like splitting up CAOS.) They’re two halves of the same arc! Way to do a disservice to season two by dicing it in twain, Netflix & Dreamworks Animation! (This will not matter to anyone in the future binge watching the complete series.)

That’s not really how this works, Adora.

The Midsommar Blues

Remember how at the end of the fiftieth forty-ninth anniversary SDCC overview I said the next entry would be more punctual. Whoops! No The Boys critique here! I could’ve had this up earlier had I not myopically decided readers would only be interested in SDCC. (Perhaps I shouldn’t have admitted upfront to not being present as I would’ve given essentially the same level of coverage either way.) If you skip past the movie review, at least the esoteric prediction is right.

I saw Midsommar at a weekday matinee, so I had the theater all to myself. It wasn’t soundproofed to the adjourning one playing Aladdin though. By now it’s left most theaters, but I’ll still SPOIL it for you. (Not Aladdin, the animated original should’ve done that for you already.)

SDCC Turned Fifty?

HUZAH! It’s the fiftieth anniversary of San Diego Comic Convention! I didn’t attend, thanks for asking. (I took last week off anyway after reviewing Stranger Things 3.) Did you? Here is my armchair event coverage (loosely arranged by DC, Marvel, & miscellaneous mess) that’s rapidly losing topicality! Wait, shouldn’t it be celebrating it golden anniversary next year?

Batman Vs. TMNT Begins My Miscellany

After a long streak, we’ve once again arrived at a blog about nothing. (Mostly since I’ve not seen Toy Story 4 yet. Legion’s last season started, but I don’t have much substantial to say about it yet.) These entries bring me back to the early scattershot days of the blog. They’re a double edged sword. They’re a nice break from feeling compelled to review something while it’s brand new & relevant, like Jessica Jones Gazebo Flipper season three no longer is. I get to unload some of backlog of musings that weren’t even tangentially relevant to previous topics at hand. On the other paw, I wonder if these will attract enough views to be worth publishing in the first place. At the end of the year, I’ll sorrowfully look back on these articles’ statistics & wonder how to make them as comparatively successful as their kin. (Make the titles more clickbaity!) Figuring out whether disparate elements should float independently or get agglomerated into semi-coherent paragraphs is another quandary. Of course once you let one tangent in, they multiply like a plague of Tribbles. Then I might as well use all the tags. This one’s got random tidbits on Batman Vs. TMNT, The 100, Agents of SHIELD, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, & more!

Cloak & Dagger Plus Darkwing Duck Get Happy!

So a lot of television happened. Here’s some assorted season two SPOILERS for Cloak & Dagger, DuckTales, & Happy! (I had to shuffle the order around to ensure the punctuated title is last.) Those are all things you should watch. Then I talk more about Return of the King of the Monsters because SKREE-ONK!!!!
