So I recently replayed WarCraft 3 just for kicks, and damn, the campaign is excellent. Especially the first Human campaign, The Scourge of Lordaeron. This is the story of Arthas' fall from grace.
So I’m not really one for Hallmark Christmas movies, or one for romantic comedies either. But after seeing the trailer for Netflix’s The Knight Before Christmas, oh baby, I was in. The movie has such a perfectly dumb premise that it’s kind of genius. A medieval knight travels through time to fall in love with Vanessa Hudgens, and the movie is called The Knight Before Christmas. Knight with a K, it’s fucking brilliant. So I watched it.
Charlie's Angels (2019) is a reboot of the movie Charlie's Angels (2000) which is a reboot of the TV show Charlie's Angels (1976). But does anyone even care about this property? I feel like the only reason people saw the first movie was because it had stars that were big at the time. But like, Kristen Stewart hasn't really done anything in a while, I didn't see the new Aladdin so I don't know who Naomi Scott is and I haven't seen nothing so I don't know who Ella Balinska is. I guess Elizabeth Banks is in this and seems to be playing Charlie kind of, because Hollywood is doing this thing where they just recast franchises with women when the boys are done playing with them. Even properties that are led by women can still recast male characters with women sometimes. Why not just create new franchises and properties led by women? Anyone? No? But even with Elizabeth Banks, I don't know if anyone cares about this franchise. I think the reason the original movie works, apart from the great cast, is that it's campy, it's fun and over the top, and doesn't take itself too seriously. Look, I haven't seen the new one yet but from the trailers it looks like another bland blockbuster. So what do I suggest as a solution to this? Easy, we reboot another property from the same era, that is essentially the same premise but could actually benefit from the live action treatment: Totally Spies!
Vampires are cool. Vampire movies might just be a little cooler. In honour of Spooktober, I'm gonna count down the top nine movies about vampires because I want to talk about vampires, and I feel that vampires don't get the credit and attention that they deserve! Also, I'm not going to talk about any of the Dracula movies, because hot take: EVERY DRACULA MOVIE IS BAD. Gary Oldman has a terrible wig in the Coppola one, aside from Bela Lugosi's performance, the original is boring, and I haven't seen Dracula Untold, but somehow I doubt it will change my mind. So without further ado, Vampire Movies.
It was April 2019. I had recently watched Jordan Peele's Us, and had heard about a documentary he was featured in called Horror Noire. It sounded cool, but the only way to watch the documentary was a new streaming service called Shudder, which focuses on horror, cult, and genre movies. So I signed up for a week long free trial, but at the end of the week when I went to cancel my subscription, they offered me a month long free trial. So I said, "What the hell?" I was writing a horror movie at the time, and a little extra inspiration couldn't hurt. So I gave Shudder a try.
I really like She-Hulk. I think she’s a really fun and unique character. She has way more personality than you would expect from a character originally created to stop the 70s TV show at the time from making a spinoff. I recently started reading and collecting John Byrne's Sensational She-Hulk run, and I really got into it. So, logically, I came up with a pitch for a She-Hulk movie.
