Rant: “The Suicide Squad” (2021) [SPOILERS!]

Right off the bat (pun?), it has to be said that this movie is a vast improvement on its predecessor in every possible way!* Sure, there were several dud lines of dialogue and plot-holes a-plenty… it’s one of those stories … Continue reading

Rant: Monthly Dee-Lights (8/20)

Just a quick note of some of the funnest content I consumed last month (in no particular order): – Bailey Meyers posted a new (feature-length!) GooseDrunks video, and this time around she tackled the goofy-gothy Vampire Breath (1996), resulting in … Continue reading

Happy Batday!

Apparently today marks the 80th Anniversary of Batman’s first published appearance, in Detective Comics #27 (1939)*, courtesy of creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger… since then he’s become pretty much ubiquitous across all media, and all age-groups, and I say … Continue reading

The Bat Takes A Bow

[Contains asymmetrical war-paint and SPOILERS!!!] Gotham finale-d out last week, after five seasons, and a hundred episodes, which fluctuated wildly between the exciting, satisfying, and infuriating.

Harley-volution (Pt. 7)

[Continuing my compulsive cataloguing of Harley Quinn‘s various on-screen appearances, in (roughly) chronological order.

Harley-volution (Pt. 6)

[Continuing my compulsive cataloguing of Harley Quinn‘s various on-screen appearances, in (roughly) chronological order.
