McFarlane Toy’s DC Multiverse Polka-Dot Man was molded in ecru despite his suit in The Suicide Squad clearly being white. The toy also comes with a card pointing out they didn’t paint the dots right. (In ye olden days, Todd would’ve given it immaculate paint at the expense of useful articulation.) So I did the only sane thing & repainted it. See if you can spot all the differences.
With Spider-Man: No Way Home & Hawkeye recaps out of the way, I can delve back into blogs that’ve been on the backburner. This post contains big SPOILERS for the second half of Masters Of The Universe Revelation season one. (This also presumes you’ve seen the first half.) Even the title may be too revealing. I don’t know statute of limitations or what your viewing schedule is, so I’m saving images until after the break. I thought it was a very worthwhile surprise, so I’m trying to be conscientious. Of course, you’ll be seeing these images anyway if you follow me on social media. (This is a call to action for you to do so.) If you weren’t planning on streaming MOTUR, however, maybe seeing what I’m talking about will change you mind? Let me know in the comments. So without further ado, here’s another diatribe about cartoons & action figures!
I take back what I said about The Falcon & The Winter Soldier: Hawkeye is the Disney+ Marvel show I was least excited for. I plum forgot it was coming out. Aim for Hawkeye SPOILERS below! You should’ve seen Endgame & Black Widow already too! I go on mini-tangents about those. (Spider-Man: No Way Home tangentially references this series & vice versa, but it’s not required viewing first. My favorite scene was when the cast of Inhumans appeared.)
The making of the second third Spider-Man movie seemed more chaotic than usual. There’s been so many leaks about this movie before press screenings even happened. Neither they nor the trailers have gotten me enthused about seeing this. Why do we need this when Into The Spider-Verse already exists? (Across The Spider-Verse looks keen! Is Hailee Steinfeld getting typecast?)
“Mom, we want Spider-Man: No Way Home!”
“We already have Spider-Man at home.”
No Way Home at home is Into The Spider-Verse. There is much rejoicing.
One downside to superhero movies finally catching on with the public is that The ‘Net is determined to spoil anything that may bring firsthand joy. Legions of Spider-Fans have been extra rabid about this one. So The Wages Of Cinema SPOILS this movie for you to perpetuate the web of abuse.
I finally got my obligatory annual cat post out of the way. (Now they tell me the cat blogging tips?) That oughta keep the Meow Mafia off my lap for a little while. Now here’s SPOILERS for how the last four installments of “The Flash: Armageddon” & “Rivervale” transpired plus a bit of bonus Beebo & ZEP!
I finally got around to publishing my annual cat post! As usual, it contains anecdotes about my kitty & assorted cat links with minimal narrative cohesion. Many of the links I’d collected over the year turned out to be from retricted or deleted accounts the day before just to make this more challenging. I even found new things to say about Cats. So bully for you if that’s what you’ve been waiting for from my blog! If not, come back soon for the forthcoming The Flash Armageddon, Rivervale, Spider-Man: No Way Home, & Hawkeye reviews torrent! Maybe I’ll enjoy some of them more than Batwoman’s third season?
Batwoman aired its third mid-season finale last week. I could’ve gotten it up sooner, but I had to contend with reviewing Masters Of The Universe Revelation Part 2, cooking for Thanksgiving, & getting a Covid booster. (I’m thankful for vaccines this year! They’re free, which is the best healthcare value for your money possible. Get vaxxed already!) Rather than saving these thoughts for a season finale overview, it became apparent that it’d be absurdly long like my Supergirl season six recap. So this is either a bit late or a lot early if you’re a binge watcher.
There is a running joke that not even Marvel fans know whom the Eternals are. Methinks constantly lampshading their obscurity is a psy-op to trick folks into buying Eternals comics so they can obtain the rarest of knowledge. I’m buying too many X-titles to fall for that! I didn’t care about Eternals & went to this primarily out of obligation to the MCU. Going in with low expectations turned out to be the right strategy, as it allowed me to enjoy it. I was shocked too! Not only is it better than I expected, it doesn’t deserve the review bombings it’s been getting. Join The Wages Of Cinema Uni-Mind for Deviant SPOILERS!
This blog has EVERYTHING: outsider pumpkin art, attempted horror film viewing, supernatural sleuths, Halloween hot takes, & Legends Of Tomorrow!
The best & worst of the Beeboverse, Legends Of Tomorrow & Batwoman, are back together again on Wednesday! We’ve had an even shorter break between seasons than usual with The CW attempting to make up for 2020. The gap betwixt LOT’s season six finale & season seven premiere is only a little over a month! Batwoman was the first Beebooverse show back this year & wrapped up in June though, which is closer to the usual span between seasons. SPOILERS for this mismatched DC duo begin below!
