Skinny Bones

I am a child of the 80s who thinks that the 1980s was the golden era of ridiculous foolery… and then I see something from the 1970s that confirms to me that everyone was on serious kinds of drugs then.

Case in point: Skinny Bones, a toy that was equal parts WHAT. THE. FUCK. and a nightmare inside of a nightmare.

Marx Toy Company (who bit the dust in 1980) must’ve bought a tent company at a fire sale and decided to use the metal tent parts for a terrifying stick figure doll called Skinny Bones.

On an episode of Thrift Hunters, the Thrift Hunters encountered Skinny Bones (at the 0:58) and actually spent a good pile of coins on it.

Since every demon from the colon of hell needs a dark-sided sidekick to help them spread the evil, Skinny had a pet horse named Nag Bones and Ginny (his sister) had a pet dog named Ham Bones.

Again, people were on serious kind of drugs in the 1970s.

On happy note, if you’re tired of having a ghost haunting your house and want to pay to have it removed, hunt down a Skinny or Ginny Bones doll and bring them into your home.

Souls are obviously the only thing they do eat.

New York Comic Con

I’m a kid at heart and I love anything related with costumes, particularly when involves superheroes, manga characters, and anything fun.

That said, October is a glorious month. Not only is the best month of the year due to Halloween, but there are still many Comic Con events all over the world, and one of the biggest happened this weekend: New York Comic Con.

Below some hot boys:

One word: Fanfukinstastic!

Venom

I watched Venom today. 

Five word: Highly entertaining and highly underrated.

I do not understand all hate and bad reviews coming from the critics for this movie.

Fans who aren’t too bothered by the changing of origins, should enjoy this movie. It is weird having Venom without having the Spider-Man black suit backstory or spider powers, but the Venom character is much more like the comics than the one in Spider-Man 3.

This was a good origin movie for a character we have only seen poorly done in the horrible Spider-Man 3 movie.

The movie did flirt between being dark and funny at the same time which I believe is Disney’s fault due to Sony renting Spider-Man to them. Other than that the fight scenes were amazing, and if I understood correctly by the way they recreated the villain (the other symbiote,) it was Riot ’cause Riot is one violent bitch!

In my opinion, those not familiar with the comic were disappointed because they expected to see Venom as “the bad guy,” when the fact is, Venom’s desire for good or evil depends on his host. In this case Venom is not the villain but an anti-hero.

Also it’s starting to seem like you can’t believe critics anymore about anything.

Tom Hardy acting is a bit wooden at times, but not enough to weaken the film much. I personally would have chose another actor, a fresh new face.

Regardless, I would defiantly recommend others to see this film.

Refund

The new, really long trailer for Aquaman is out and it’s 5 minutes of bro jokes, Amber Heard in an off-brand Ariel wig, a million tons of CGI, Nicole Kidman in a leftover The Twins wig from The Matrix, and zero shots of Jason Momoa’s bare nipples.

That mess is an ocean movie and there’s no Momoa nip in the trailer? Refund!

Dark Phoenix

She is fire, out of control and among the most feared beings in all of existence. And here she is, the first Dark Phoenix trailer to usher in both the beginning and end of all things. 

The Dark Phoenix Saga is one of the most important stories in X-Men history that fundamentally changed the core team’s dynamic and made readers see all of the characters, especially Jean Grey, in new shocking lights.

I seriously don’t expect a masterpiece like Days of Future Past, but this looks/has to be better than Apocalypse.

Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker

When I heard there was going to be a movie about the origin of the Joker, I just assumed there was a Netflix documentary about Kellyanne Conway coming out.

Luckily, they meant Batman’s sparring partner! 

Joaquin Phoenixis taking over the role as “Arthur” and we didn’t have to wait long for the film studio to drop a lewk at what Arthur looks like when he hits up the MAC counter.

As a fan of DC (and Marvel) comics and on serious note, I very much approve Joaquin’s Joker look. He looks mad and creepy as hell. In my opinion this looks for a mature audience, unlike Jared Leto’s trying-hard incarnation on Suicide Squad. 

Heath Ledger’s Joker set the bar very high, and it’s a good thing to cast actors in typical serious roles, like Phoenix, to portrait them.

Bitch looks absolutely insane and I’m buying it.

Batdick

Looks like the people over at DC were inspired by their latest Batman, Ben Affleck, much more than anyone first thought. Not really by his performance of Batman itself, but by the performance of his dick in Gone Girl. Does art imitate life or life imitate art? Who knows.

Vice is reporting that in the first of a three-issue miniseries called Damned, our favourite extremely rich and broody super hero Batman, shows us his tool, and not one from around his belt, honey.

That’s right! Batman shows dick, and we aren’t talking Grayson. The NSFW (Is comic book dick NSFW?) is below and like Batman, Batdick is moody as hell and lurks in the shadows.

My thanks to writers Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo who decided that Batman’s cut dick was relevant to the plot development of this narrative. Thank you for your hard work.

So, after this  maybe there’s some Superpeen on the horizon? Oh god I hope so! I hope this means they keep Henry Cavill as Superman. 

Now Clark, it’s your turn. Let’s see what you’re packing, homeboy…
