Soooo, saw the Lego Batman movie… I won’t give any spoilers, but not only is this a great sequel to ‘the Lego Movie’, I swear to god it was the best Batman movie in a decade. Say what you want about the Nolanverse– I personally thought the first and last movie were boring– but ‘the Dark Knight’ revived a love for Batman in the heart of people after many were disparaged from ‘Batman and Robin’. And for that I appreciate it.
But Lego Batman… was like a freaken LOVE LETTER to all things Batman. The nerd in my fangasmed at all the references, the kid in me laughed at all the jokes, and the writer in me can’t believe how– outside the brilliant comedy– this is a genuine Batman movie. One that deals about his loss, and what made him into the man we know today.
Just… if you can, please go see this movie. You’ll have a great time, Snark approval.
I loved her when she did greenface in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Actresses who look like Nina Simone really do exist, Hollywood. Look harder.

The original Terminator movies were about nuclear war and the opposition of man and machine, all backed by a military AI called Skynet bent on exterminating humanity. To co-producer David Ellison, that AI is starting to look less and less fictional: technology integrating itself into our lives — and sneaking into our pockets — is the reality many of us live in. “We’ve invited Skynet into our homes,” Ellison says. “We line up in front of Apple stores to buy these things. The singularity is very much in the near future. The bond of man and machine is just around the corner.”
