The Gifted’s Second Season Baby Boom!

The GIF Ted has returned! This time Inhumans isn’t back to make it look a zillion times better in comparison. (Marvel may be overcompensating for that failure with the Death of the Inhumans miniseries.) The Gifted season 2 moves to Tuesday at 8, which is The Flash’s time slot. Not cool, Fox! This is as bad as Supergirl & Doctor Who competing against each other. Anyway, SPOILERS for “eMergence” emerge below! This season they’re doing M-titles because they ran out of X-words.

Iron Fist’s Second Season Is A Sucker Punch?

Two big Marvel releases happened on September 7! I don’t have a PS4, however, so no Spider-Man: Ravencroft Asylum for me. That leaves me with … RUH-ROH! I ran a poll on The Twitter to decide whether I ought to subject myself to Iron Fist season two, & seventy-one percent of the voters were sadists.

Or are they? I was expecting to despise this based on its pedigree & underwhelming trailer, but it’s actually not bad? This was actually a bit of a disappointment as it forced my to revise the preliminary draft of schadenfreude I’d written. I’d originally planned to just watch the three episodes IMDB told me Alice Eve was in so Netflix will be forced to put the show out of our misery, but then it turned out she’s in the whole shebang. This was a wise move on the series’ part, as she’s a big reason this season succeeds. Step into the sun chamber for SPOILERS!

How Sinful Is Preacher’s Third Season?

Preacher’s third season has been a catch-22. Preacher purists will dislike it because it’s strays too far from the comics, whereas I think it’s too faithful because I don’t find the comics to be the unimpeachable masterpiece that everyone else does. (Now it’d be a horse of a different color if this was a televisual Transmetropolitan.)

Taking A Stab At Barbara Kean!

Weeks ago, I teased my final Toys R Us receipt. What did I buy? Another Barbara Kean! I just felt so bad these were warming pegs as TRU closed down. She would’ve sold better had they gone with a less passive costume & some accessories she could wield. It was a good motivator for me to finally customize her into a better outfit. Barbara is one of Gotham’s best surprises, but to explain why is a spoiler if you’re not already watching. (My sister said only weirdos watch Gotham. I can’t argue with that. It’s just science.) So watch for me to divulge various season secrets as I show her off below. All I’ll say now is that she’s Gotham City’s Cheryl Blossom, which would make Tabitha Galavan its Toni Topaz. (This analogy will be on the SAT!) So none of this makes sense if you haven’t seen Riverdale either. Ms. Kean puts the arch in arch-criminal. She is as the youths say “EXTRA AF.”

Teen Titans Go To Cloak & Dagger!

This week you’re getting a two-for-one review of Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (that exclamation mark in mid-title vexes me) & the first season of Cloak & Dagger! The former has fewer spoilers than the latter.

I remember when there was backlash against the Teen Titans cartoon for deviating from both the comics & the DCAU. After that wormed its way into audience’s hearts, there was backlash against Teen Titans Go! for seemingly disrespecting its predecessor. (I find it to be a better show than it gets credit for, though I only watch it infrequently.) Now we’re all united in hating the Titans trailer because it’s awful. (Does this mean we’ll have fond memories of Titans by the time the next reboot is teased?) Teen Titans Go! To The Movies makes DC Universe’s flagship series look even more embarrassing because it’s legitimutantly fun!

SDCC Struck Again!

San Diego Comic Con 2018 just happened. (As expected, nobody cared about “Fiction & Felines!” while it was occurring.) I have opinions. Armchair coverage & the possible spoilers associated therewith happen below.

The biggest news out of this year’s SDCC is … Cutthroat Island is finally getting toys!  Thanks to Blitzway, you can own a Hot Toys-style replica from the film that sunk pirate movies until until Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl surprised everyone! Congratulations, Geena Davis!

Ant-Man & The Wasp Equal Gargantuan Guffaws!

Here’s another installment of me rambling about movies with your favorite podcast, The Wages of Cinema! This time we put Ant-Man & The Wasp under the microscope. This is a good installment for fans of self-indulgent tangents! My text critique* follows below with minuscule spoilers, although commercials already spoiled the final post-credits scene.   It’s delayed in the UK due to the World Cup, which is not scaled to hold a planet without Pym Particles.
