  1. Year after year this tradition passes me by. Year after year this season rolls around and I think "I could make a list... I could check it twice". Finally, after who knows how long of telling myself I could do that thing that other people do, here I am. Proving that I ingest just as much garbage as everyone else does. So, at last, here we are. The culmination of at least one year of thinking I know more than everyone, as well as at least one year of sitting on my ass and not doing anything to prove that I know anything at all. There was a lot I experienced this year. My first real heartbreak. My first almost near-death experience via potential carbon monoxide poisoning. My first long island iced tea. My first bluegrass concert. I may have taken in quite a lot of stuff this year, however, comparatively, I let out quite little. Shockingly little. If a sort of alien HR department took a census of Earth's population, they'd be hard-pressed to find anything that would actually speak to my humanity and might instead put me down in the "miscellaneous" or "sickly looking tree" category. However, through no fault of my own, this list began to take shape, and here we are. It looked bleak at first, and I thought I might never get this done, but as I thought about it I came to the realization that, well, I've got nothing else going on right now, so I may as well write this. SOME MOVIES RANGING FROM ALRIGHT TO PRETTY GOOD THAT TERMINOOB WATCHED THIS YEAR INSTEAD OF DOING ANYTHING PRODUCTIVE OR FULFILLING CONCERNING HIS LIFE, CAREER, OR OVERALL HAPPINESS HONORARY MENTION FOR BEING SORT OF ORIGINAL AND SORT OF ENJOYABLE BUT OVERALL SORT OF NOT ALL THAT GOOD I SAW THIS ONE TOO LATE AND DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO PUT IT BUT YOU SHOULD WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'T I'M STARTING THE LIST RIGHT AFTER I GIVE ANOTHER MENTION TO ANOTHER MOVIE I COULDN'T FIT IN BUT WAS STILL AMAZING ACTUALLY HOLD ON I REMINDED MYSELF I NEED TO WATCH THE SEASON PREMIERE OF THE BACHELOR SO I'LL GET BACK TO THIS LATER

    I'd say possibly worth watching for the acting depending on if there are any nominations for Bale/Rockwell/Adams, but otherwise I'd suggest skipping it. I thought Adam McKay's style worked really well for The Big Short because the subject matter was dry and totally incomprehensible and having pop culture references and fourth wall breaks and comedic writing really helped make that palatable and interesting, but he comes off as really full of himself with this. His cleverness goes all the way around and ends up making it seem like he's just talking down to the audience, like he thinks we're not smart enough to understand the rise of Dick Cheney and he needs to dumb it down for us. If he just made a straight Dick Cheney movie I would've been totally fine with it, but inserting Shakespearean soliloquies and having Guantanamo Bay get served up on a silver platter (almost literally) and rolling credits halfway through the movie just wasn't enjoyable to watch. If you're hankering for a funny movie about political corruption and power struggles, I'd suggest Death of Stalin. If you wanna see Christian Bale do alright and have Adam McKay tell you you're an idiot for two hours, then this movie is fine.
  4. Well, alright now. I'll debate you on this one. Ichigo gets literally every major power in the series - he's half Soul Reaper/half Quincy with a Hollow mask and a Fullbring (and maybe more? I don't remember). He's very much a typical Shonen protagonist in that sense (and, in my opinion, also very much an example of bad writing). Personality-wise I don't see much differentiating him either; Naruto and Goku were both brash, hot-headed, and aggressive at times - just because they're goofballs too doesn't preclude them from being fighters and trouble makers. Ichigo's lanky, I guess, but Deku is small and Luffy is made of rubber, so it's not like body shape should be much of a factor because it's still a Shonen series and they're all basically shredded beyond belief.
  5. Artistic influences include Steve Ditko, Jhonen Vasquez, and that one episode of Ed Edd n' Eddy where they break reality.
  7. Ironically I think the Enter the Florpus trailer was the first time I'd seen his work since I was, like, 20, and this stuff was done over the past month. I might just be inadvertently morphing into him at this point.
  8. OOF. Okay, whole year? Lemme think back. TV: I think New Girl went out with a decent enough final season. It was one of my favorite shows since it premiered and I'd been following along the whole time, and while it felt rushed and awkward at times it was still about as good as I had hoped. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was wild. I liked the first half of the new iZombie season, but I haven't caught the whole thing so I might hate the rest of it. I think Joel McHale came back swinging with The Joel McHale Show Starring Joel McHale and I'm glad to have him back on some sort of screen. I still gotta catch the new season of Atlanta, but I'm sure that's great as well. I don't think there was much else. Survivor was a letdown post-merge until the last, like, five minutes of final tribal. I started following The Bachelorette this year and that's been a bit wonky at times as well, aside from Jordan. Movies: Sorry to Bother You is the movie of the summer. If you haven't checked it out yet you need to find it and go see it, because it's fucking nuts. Eighth Grade was predictably phenomenal and sad. Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, despite some writing inconsistencies that don't mesh with the first one, was a great time (and I think much better than the first). The Incredibles 2 had some nice set pieces and there was that one scene with Elastigirl running over rooftops and through alleyways at nighttime while the Screenslaver was talking and there was no music playing and it floored me. It was so amazing. Unfortunately I'm not in love with the movie on the whole, but that short at the beginning was wild. The Death of Stalin was fucking spectacular. Game Night was really solid. There's still a bunch I gotta watch, though - still haven't seen Hereditary, A Quiet Place, He Won't Get Far on Foot, Annihilation, First Reform, Blindspotting, Thoroughbreds, or Revenge. First half of the year I didn't really go to the movies all that often since I lived at home and I mostly just watched old stuff on Netflix/Amazon/Google Play and I only just recently started going to the movies again. Simonson's is a masterpiece and the gold standard for basically any kind of sprawling epic. JMS had a good one too, though I admittedly haven't read much of it.
  9. Yeah, I don't know what DC is thinking. They may have needed a way to market the Titans book and being able to say "if you wanna read Wally West, this is the ONLY PLACE YOU'LL EVER BE ABLE TO DO IT ANYMORE" was probably too good to pass up. It just seems like such a waste. Him coming back in Rebirth was so buckwild and then they just immediately dropped the ball with him. Maybe he'll get a new title spinning out of Heroes in Crisis or something.
  10. Wally West from now until the end of time. Others include Booster Gold, Zatanna, Black Canary, Constantine, and Swamp Thing. A new recent character I really love is Superman's son Jon - he hasn't gotten a lot of time to shine but he's really goofy and fun and the Super Sons book with him and Damian was one of the best things DC's put out in a while.
  11. The whole run is killer, and it's still going. God Butcher was probably the best of Jason Aaron's original Thor run, and the first volume of Jane Foster Thor isn't super amazing, but once he gets the exposition out of the way it picks right back up with Thunder in Her Veins and it's been really fun. Plot can be a bit wonky at times and the dialogue isn't the greatest, but it's just so awesome watching Jane lead Asgardia to war and seeing Odinson riding around on a space goat and wielding a giant axe. Highly highly recommend checking out the whole thing when you can. Portman was very much wasted in the role and deserved a much better treatment, so I would hope that if Marvel approaches her with the idea to come back and do a Jane Foster Thor movie she'd be open to it because she could be this badass woman thunder god that's proving she's just as strong as any other "true" God and she's doing what she's doing out of a sense of innate goodness and the hope to inspire change at the cost of literally losing her entire identity because becoming Thor is the only thing keeping her alive instead of doing what she's doing because she's an arrogant power hungry egomaniac that just wants people to worship her. I'll probably catch the full thing eventually, but I'm also still really tired of superhero movies so I'm not sure when I'll sit down and re-watch it.
  12. I haven't seen all of it - maybe half? My roommates were watching it one day and I caught it right as Thor and Hulk were fighting in the arena and then I watched from there until the end. Really good stuff. I'm glad they addressed the fact that he's the god of thunder and his hammer is just an extension of his powers. He's my favorite Marvel hero and I've been reading Thor comics for years and I was really frustrated for that entire half of the movie when he was like "I'm nothing without my hammer! I'm worthless!". I asked my roommate why he wasn't doing anything and he mentioned that they hadn't dealt with that development in the movies yet, which I guess I forgot - but I'm glad he finally uncovered his true power and I'd love to see where they go moving forward. I think a perfect fourth movie would be adapting the God Butcher arc and having everything ripped away from Thor after he's finally become the God he was always meant to be - not to mention Jane Foster picking up the hammer would be an incredible post-credits scene. But yeah, action was great, soundtrack was great, visuals were great, humor was great. Hopefully Marvel recognizes the talent they have with Taika and they let him keep being weird. If they don't want to move forward with more Thor I would absolutely love to see him tackle a Nova movie. That'd be wild.
  13. Slowly starting to get back into a kind of groove. I went through a really tough breakup and it put a damper on my whole year up until very recently. But, you know, I moved to New York a couple months ago, feeling good about my art, keeping myself busy by trying to craft the perfect breakfast burrito, been finding cool bars and fun trivia nights to go to, seeing friends semi-regularly, getting out and walking around, going to movies and events and whatnot, been writing some stupid poetry and coming up with comic ideas, get to cat sit for a friend next week. Things are pretty alright right now.
  14. Well hello there. Come here often?
