Trailer Of A Mess

When the serial rebooters known as Netflix shared the first pictures from the She-Ra reboot, I got up out of my chair, walked to the nearest wall, and did an open-mouthed cry wall slide over those evil butcherers transforming the 80s goddess of mythological glamour into a tragic mess.

But after I pulled myself up off the floor and whispered, “You’re my only She-Ra,” into my She-Ra doll’s head, I told myself that the She-Ra reboot isn’t for me, but for the children of today, and now the children of today got their first look at their Baby She-Ra in action.

The teaser trailer shows Sailor Moon’s white second cousin (aka the new Adora a.k.a. She-Ra) getting lured into the forest by a stranger’s voice…

Somebody should really tell Adora that if a strange voice tries to lure you into the forest, run the opposite way and call the cops!!

To me, it still looks like anime as drawn by the worst student in a high school animation class. With that being said, I am not watching Fetus-Ra, because I am not a damn kid. But mostly, because Netflix is not making any justice the iconic cartoon.

She-Ra is supposed to be woman, not a girl. And should be looking like this:

One word: MEH!

The Fall of Beauty

When I heard that Netflix and Dreamworks Animation were joining forces to bring She-Ra into the now, I prayed to Jesus to not let them mess it up.

Well, it’s now confirmed that Jesus doesn’t exist because Netflix released the first official pictures of the new She-Ra
and it’s a MESS!!

Those butcherers turned She-Ra and Catra into Fetus-Ra (or an Elf?) and Kidtra.

There’s some die-hard She-Ra nerds like myself who are crying about the new design because the new She-Ra’s NOT SEXY like the 80’s animation.

I get the “objectification” thing and the fact that society is oversensitive but it’s classic/cult cartoon for God’s sake!

Why in the new cartoons/reboots all characters must look like they still haven’t hit puberty? It’s STUPID!!!

The real problem is that She-Ra looks like she was drawn with Crayons by a 12-year-old who flipped through a manga once real fast, and looks like she can’t battle evil after 8 PM because that’s when her curfew is.

And Catra is no longer an evil goddess of perfection who destroys her enemies with her glamour. She’s now an angsty tween who looks like the only thing she destroys is her bedroom wall by carving an anarchy sign into it while listening to Fall Out Boy.

Truly, what’s this mess?!!!

In case the original She-Ra isn’t cemented in your brain like mine, here’s what she and some of her friends looked like:

And this is Catra:


Whats’s wrong with being hot and sexy while kicking ass??

80’s cartoons were a thing of beauty.

The new version is so ugly. Gosh! WTF Netflix?!!

STOP. FUCKING. WITH. MY. CHILD. HOOD!

Justice League= WIN!

I watched Justice League today and it was FANTASTIC!!

Please if you’re a comic book fan don’t let a handful of presumptuous and full of shit critics who are completely owned by Disney (Marvel’s boss) stop you from seeing this film.

Its not perfect, it moves too quickly, the villain, while well voiced, doesn’t get enough backstory, and the CGI is bad at moments BUT… It has a really solid superhero action, just enough character development to be satisfying, and really solid performances. 

Seriously, it doesn’t matter if some lines or actions seem unreal, it is a superhero movie, for gods sake!

I loved to see all those heroes (and gods of the first scenes) together.

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman once again was PERFECT! Batman, Aquaman, Flash and particularly Cyborg was exceptionally well done. 

Justice League was exactly what my eyes needed to clean up the garbage that was Marvel’s Thor. This is a real superheroes movie, not another comedy!
  

FUCK the critics, this was great! (Yet WW still the best superhero film this year)

The Man Who First Played Godzilla Has Died

Haruo Nakajima, the suit actor who played Godzilla from 1954’s Godzilla to 1972’s Godzilla vs. Gigan, has died. He was 88.

Nakajima started his career playing small bit roles, but his big break was bringing Godzilla to life in its seminal debut. He would go on to play the character for the 12 consecutive films that followed over the next 18 years.

While the gig paid well, Nakajima said he didn’t initially get the respect he deserved donning the 100 kilogram Godzilla suit. “Back then, people didn’t speak positively of suit actors,” says Nakajima. “There’d be whispers going around that working inside (a suit) is not an acting job.”

The character he played is one of the most famous in movie history.

According to Sponichi Annex, Nakajima died yesterday afternoon after contracting pneumonia.

Rest in peace legendary sir!

New Justice League Trailer Is All Kinds of Epic

Justice League drops on November 17, and they premiered a new trailer for it. It’s basically a big cartoon, but Ezra Miller seems like he’ll be fun as Flash, my respect for Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is increasing, and I think we’re all in agreement about Jason Momoa as Aqua-Piece Of Ass. You can watch below.

It was very heavy on Steppenwolf, the villain of the film, and ended on a very intriguing tease… CAN’T WAIT!

Arby’s Facebook Status Updates Are Taking Internet By Storm

While most restaurants use their social media accounts as billboards for every-possible-angle photos of their menu items, Arby’s fast-food chain decided to use their Facebook in a more clever way.

They started posting simple artworks that people actually wanted to see. And it paid off big time.

“Our strategy really involves identifying the niche areas of interest like gaming, hunting, golf that we think resonates well with our audience,” said Josh Martin, the senior director of the social media team. And once they hit it off with the gamer audience, they knew they were onto something.

Now it has escalated into a Facebook page with almost 3 million followers and a constant stream of awesomely creative posts that cover everything from games, tv shows, movies and more.

Creative and full of win!!
