Dollhouse episode 11 is on Hulu.

Fucking.
Awesome.

Roscoe said...

Lazer-Eye Baraka Deadpool? W/ no mouth!?

Christ on a cunting crutch.

I mean.. prior to that, all I was REALLY bitching about in a freebie watch was the Gambit travesty. Well.. that and Liev Schrieber's bizzare dog-run/leaping.

Then.. THAT?!

It seems that Alan Tudyk is now being type-cast as a "drugged up and out of one's mind individual".


Death at a FuneralDollhouse, Briar Rose

Caleb said...

OH!

Andrew said...

I went to see wolverine with the lowest of expectations. In that mindset it was entertaining.

My only disappointment was that at no point in the film did wolverine ask for soup.

Mike Lewis said...

Alan Tudyk was fucking amazing in this weeks episode.

while it was spoiled to me a few weeks ago that he was alpha, there were few points in the episode that it could of been Helo (Paul).

the final moments of Alpha and Eco going all bad ass and walking out of the dollhouse gave me flashbacks to Dru and Spike in Buffy season 2.

I Fucking Love Dollhouse

Roscoe said...

Man, The 'lilest Wolvie is almost worth admission.

That and his bizzare flying run.

Shame that they followed it up w/ waste.

Roscoe said...

.... And what the HELL is up w/ Xavier/Cyclops/Toad/Emma, Etc?

I mean.. that's just so far out of left field.

_J_ said...

I'm going to see it at 3:45 this afternoon with two friends. One heard that the movie is "amazing". The other expects it to be "as good as the other X-men movies" where "good" is not understood in a sarcastic sense.

My hope is that one of them cries before the end. Though, neither of them have heard of Deadpool...so they may be too damned ignorant to truly understand how bad this movie is.

Roscoe said...

Lemme put it thusly. This "Deadpool" carries no guns.

MA17 said...

I don't know why they bothered to tie this in with the Singer X-Men series except that it gives even the dullest of movie goers an "AHA!" moment of realization, I suppose.

My parents and I went to see this movie, and I'm glad I went with them, because they're as casual and non-fan as anyone else in the world, and it was nice to have a "What the hell just happened" response from someone who was going into the theater more or less blind. By this I mean to imply that the movie doesn't even work as a piece of film, as evidenced by two film goers untainted by any hint of fandom.

MA17 said...

Also, in a movie that relies on action to some degree, I think it's important for the movie to be able to answer the "what makes this action sequence interesting or different?" Gladiator had that low-framerate stuff and had some pretty visceral gladiator combat. It was visually exciting and kind of cool at the time. Transformers, such as it is, has fucking crazy ass giant robots duking it out and also turning into trucks and planes and shit. For all its failures, that's still different enough to be kind of cool.

Wolverine? He walks away from an explosion in slomo. Come the fuck on. The fights that are more mutation-centered were pretty well covered in the other X-Men movies. There's really very little that's new to look at. There's some John Woo stuff that's kind of cool, but again, it's so easily categorized as "JOHN WOO" that its oppressively boring to look at.

Mike Lewis said...

you know who else walked away from explosions in slow-mo? the power rangers and they sucked.

i have no intentions of seeing this movie - mostly because x3 sucked so fucking hard.

Roscoe said...

Oh, GOD... Yeah.. I've been dissecting the text of "JUST" the film, trying to see where it goes wrong, just as a matter of nature..

English degree-ish, and all..

and.. even that makes me weep.

The best bits of the flick are things that are fully unexplained.. like pre-fatso Blob/Fred Dukes punching the tank/using his immobility to bounce the shell back, wreck things, Wraith's semi-teleport/death sequence, etc..

There are 30 sec. beats/moments in the flick that are.. Nearly Great.. but they're brought down by the pile of shit those cubic zirconia are in.

_J_ said...

The people with whom I went liked it. They said it was a "good film". Then they said "Stan Lee was the executive director, so this movie is canon."

Ponder that.

kylebrown said...

He was an executive producer which is far different from a director. The producer is the means upon which the film is made. The producer has very little control over the content of the film. He had no writing credits in this film unlike Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk. This movie is not canon.

Mike Lewis said...

i fell off the hours today...got a case of Pepsi Throwback, because cola with real sugar is awesome.

i had not drank cola for 3 months and today i ahve had 3 cans.

kylebrown said...

Where did you find it? I can't find throwback anywhere on the north side of Indy.

_J_ said...

Is it delicious beyond measure?

Mike Lewis said...

I found it at Target. it seems to only come in 12-packs on cans.

It is not as good as Coke made with real sugar (which you can sometimes find in Latino markets or around Passover) but it is tasty.

will i buy another case when it runs out? most likely not. Ive had 4 cans now, and I've had heart burn all day and i feel a migrane coming on. Both things are way lead me to stop drinking cola in february.

A Summer Project

I hate it when lego makes specialized pieces in order to make sets that look like something. It changes their product from a construction toy into a model, which is shit shit shit.

Build one thing and then put that on a shelf. Don't explore the possibilities of the world around you. Follow the diagram and build it right. Die sad, cold and alone.

_J_ said...

I always used my Legos to build houses. The people who lived in them were always so happy, respectful, and loving towards one another. I think Legos were how I coped with my wretched homelife.

I also build space cars. Because cars in space would be rad.

kylebrown said...

Found some throwback in the local Kroger. It is much smoother with sugar. It isn't as thick and therefore doesn't gather in the back of my throat. I approve.

Roscoe said...

There is a fine line between Lego specialized pieces for authenticity and Lego specialized pieces for COOL USES.

See Also: Lego Radar Dishes, Lego Magnets, and Lego Colored Antenna/pre-liscenced Light Sabers.

Roscoe said...

io9 has rumor of Hugh Jackman signing on to an adaptation of a Doug Tennapel comic.

Dare one such as I dream!?

"It isn't as thick and therefore doesn't gather in the back of my throat."

Little gay.

When I say that I love pop, I mean I love pop.

_J_ said...

See? It's called pop!

I KNEW it!

_J_ said...

This picture makes me laughIt's about anime, and safe for work.

Mike Lewis said...

Sorry Jay

kylebrown said...

That doesn't bother me much because I think Reynolds was a perfect cast for Deadpool. It is the direction that the writing staff and director took that made me sick to my stomach.

_J_ said...

FUCK.

Maybe MAYBE if this is a "pretend origins didn't happen" movie then it would be fine.

And they need to give him guns.
Lots of guns.

"The point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as not to seem worth stating, and end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it."

Yeah.

_J_ said...

Can't sleep.
Must write.
Can't sleep.
Must write.

Actually I'm doing fine. I'm on page 13 and need at least 15 pages by...noonish. That's more than 7 hours.

After I finished my last paper I made a noose and hung the book in my living room. I fucking hate that book.

_J_ said...

Zomg paper complete!

And it is only mildly unintelligible.

_J_ said...

I need a cover page!

Will my cover page contain a lolcat? There is a 17% chance that it wilL!

MA17 said...

Oh hey Eragon is on.

One time I saw an interview with some director, and he was talking about how you have to be extra careful making movies for kids, because they're so intuitive and can spot anything that doesn't ring true or some bullshit along those lines.

What a fucking idiot.

Roscoe said...

Goddamn this night, and all it represents.

I'm without phone (missing), and playing second Shining Knight for one lady, first KNIGHT for another who's affected by the deep and dire shit that has befallen the first.


FUCK this night.

Roscoe said...

AND FUCK HE who occasioned it, to the fullest extent of HYPERBOLE.
