They Need The Fantastic Four

The FF are unfortunately and very visibly missing form the MCU and with that horrible iterations that came out we can safely say the rights desperately need to be reverted back to Marvel.  Now that being said I believe it needs to happen sooner that later as it would help quell the injustice Marvel has subjected white people with.

Yes, you just read that right: injustice to the white people. With all these politically correct motivated changes to characters via their back story or even their ethnicity (looking at you Heimdal) I honestly believe the FF need to be released as they should be: all white and all American.

It just feels that they (white people) are not being represented and with Luke Cage and Black Panther making white America feeling some what uncomfortable kinda of way it’s time they get a Marvel movie just for them where they can be the hero again. Where they can be the center of attention with no sidekicks or some kind of ethic liaison to Shield or any crap like that.

Marvel please give them the heroes they deserve. The heroes they need so they can stop feeling left out. This way Lil Tommy and Lil Jane can look at the big screen and see themselves.

ALTERNA COMICS – SCRIMSHAW- 1#

 

 

The world is underwater. Al Gore’s worst nightmare has come true.The ice caps have melted .Governments have fallen ,and the world is a very different place now. This is conveyed very succinctly in the first few pages. Broken politics and corporate iron fists are the voice of the day now, and that’s where the story begins.

SCRIMSHAW has kind of a swashbuckling feel to it. Somewhere between WATERWORLD,PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN with a nice undercurrent of some of Wolverines time in Japan. Writer Eric Borden is able to Mesh this together into the beginnings of an adventure where the “good guys” aren’t necessarily that good, and the bad guys need a worse name because of their actions.

Eric fleshed out the characters as much as one can in a first issue and you receive introductions to a fair amount of personalities that can expanded on in further issues. Some I found more interesting than others but time will tell whether they are intended to be bit players or main roster characters. He also provided a nice hook for issue #2 in the “There be Whales here captain!!!” vein.

Artist Dave Mim’s work reminds of a cross between Jae Lee and Whilce Portacio. Jagged and demonic, which fits nicely in with the characters of this series. The backgrounds seemed a bit too busy for me but the more I thought about it, it would make sense that the backdrops for this story would be crowded and very hustle and bustle.

This book is a 4 issue limited series and I’m going to order the other 3 parts. If I did have one suggestion for the book, it would be the lettering. The point size could stand to be a little bigger. I found myself more than once squinting to read it and you lose some story flow when you have to do that. Also, Do yourself a favour and google “Scrimshaw”. You’ll learn something new. I did.

Next Issue is out Aug.2017

Trailer Preview – Jumanji 2: Welcome to the Jungle.

 

If Sony had of just called this movie “Welcome to the Jungle “they probably would have saved themselves a tonne of grief. The word Jumanji conjures up images and memories of late comedic icon Robin Williams and that’s something that will probably not help this film. Many tweets I’ve read about these trailers have been negative .Many for no reason I feel.

The Trailer begins almost as an Homage to “The Breakfast Club” in that 4 students of diverse back grounds get to spend some time in detention. I’m not completely sure this was not a coincidence. They actually gave a little bit more away in this trailer then I wanted to see.Sometimes it’s not a bad thing to keep a surprise how people get from one place to another.

Soon we’re cranking it up with strains of Guns and Roses “Welcome to the Jungle “booming through the scenes. Guns and Roses works with practically every trailer so not reading too much into the movies quality here.

The movies stars The Rock, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan. Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), also signed on for it and he usually doesn’t do scripts unless there is something there so that interests me . Most of the Jokes in the Trailers land, and Jack Black channeling a lovely blonde seems like it might have a few chuckles from the trailer. You are, of course going to see many, many dangerous animals along the way in all their CGI majesty

I found the International Trailer did a better job of selling the movie for me.These folks seem like they had a good time making the film and poking some fun at their character stereotypes so that to me is a plus. If people go in to watch the movie without thinking of Robin Williams they will probably enjoy the movie much more. All the man wanted to do was make you smile. Why not try it?

It’s releasing Dec.22nd and will probably face some pretty rough competition at that time(The Last Jedi drops the week before) but it might be effective counter programming. I say cautiously. Domestic and International Trailers are below. Thanks for reading
