The Lego Batman Movie was wonderful, and I'm already looking forward to getting it on Blu-Ray so I can watch it again in peace. As much as I love the two little people who I accompanied (my six-year-old niece and 12-year-old nephew/cousin -- they are second cousins to each other), they were quite insistent on providing running commentary the whole way and having to shush them every few minutes left me a little distracted.

Case in point:Read more... )

Omega Men (Amazon US) is published by DC Comics, but it has pretty much nothing to do with superheroes or the Justice League or any of that stuff. It stands apart as a sort of space opera masterpiece; the kind of science-fiction that isn't so much speculative as it is reflective of human society.

Just, you know. Featuring feline aliens and murderous military robots that look like Wall-E.Read more... )

I woke up the other day suddenly excited about the forthcoming film adaptation of Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time. Disney is producing it, so a baseline of quality is inevitable, but what's really exciting is that Ava DuVernay will be directing it.

Blogs, blogs, blogs. There are so many different platforms to choose from these days -- not just the usual WordPress or Tumblr, but also you've also got folk like Atavist, Medium.

Dreamwdith, being based on the LiveJournal sourcecode, is rather old-school, but that's what I like about it, too. LiveJournal was developed at a time when many people were still on dial-up and high-speed internet was a slowly emerging phenomenon. Image sharing was tedious back then, never mind video sharing. Text was king on the world wide web, back in those days.

And that's what I would like to focus on, for this little 'experiment'. I'm always reading a book or watching TV/movies or catching up on news, and I'd like to talk about those things. I also want to try and be positive in this blog. I tend to veer to the cycnical and nihilistic, so I'd like to change things up and focus on celebrating the nice stuff.

Here goes!
