Scorsese's new film The Irishman is looking really promising. 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes; the long awaited reunion with De Niro and an epic length that goes further than even Casino at 209 minutes. 

Here's the trailer.



Dropping on Netflix toward the end of November, after a limited theatrical run.

So unless they're leaving an announcement to the absolute last minute, it looks like the UK's Sky One is fucking up the Arrowverse this season. Reason? Batwoman. Absolutely no word on showing it even though Supergirl, Flash and Arrow all have known air dates in the UK now and Batwoman starts the same time as them in the US (a few days ago) and is supposed to take the second episode slot in the big crossover event this year. 

It seems bloody odd if they haven't picked it up, but even odder if they have and haven't even announced anything about it yet, with Supergirl returning in under two weeks.

So apparently this isn't Sky's fault - the US hasn't even given them the option to take the series. Instead they're holding it back from the UK for their own new platform which doesn't and won't exist within the next two weeks, causing chaos in December when the crossover starts because we will NOT be getting episode 2 of 5. The new platform will likely be another case for extra subscription fees on top of that. 

Give me one good reason to watch any of these shows this season now.

So apparently an as yet unknown 3rd party has swooped in under Sky's nose and acquired Batwoman's UK rights including episode 2 of the crossover event. And whoever it is is keeping schtum. 

Some company in the TV world out there is clearly studying the book of Epic Games Store. And is doing so they have fucked up the biggest superhero event TV has ever had. I hope that someone, somewhere, is fucking proud of themselves.

So apparently Vikings isn't ending after all with its next season (due to start airing in a couple of weeks) but will instead morph into a sequel show called Valhalla depicting a new chapter of viking history, set about 100 years later.

Re-watching Iron Man feels so weird after so many other MCU movies and seeing someone other than Don Cheadle playing Rhodey.

New Ghostbusters trailer, following on from the original continuity and ignoring the reboot.

The trailer strikes me as being more typical for a supernatural horror movie, at least up until a point.

Someone must really hate us Arrowverse fans in the UK. Not only is there still no sign of Batwoman, there's now no sign of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover at all. Media outlets have reported that we will still get episodes 1 and 3 next week. This turned out to not be the case with the release of next week's tv guide. 

If it's being held back to try to get the Batwoman fiasco sorted out, then fine, but I really don't know how it's going to be possible to avoid spoilers from the US. I already found out a major one just by trying to research when (or rather, if) we're even going to get to see any of the crossover in the UK now.

I do like Vikings but didn't enjoy season 5 as much as previous ones.

The Last Kingdom is another one in that vein I enjoy. Hopefully be a 4th series soon.

The Expanse season 4 drops tomorrow. For the first time not being shafted on it in the UK, thanks to Amazon Prime. 

Also The Grand Tour returns. Clarkson, Hammond and May - better comedy than most modern sitcoms.

I've started Vikings season 6 a couple of days ago. I have episode 4 on there ready to go now. So far it's been pretty good. 

Looks like there will be a two week gap now since the next episode would normally fall on Xmas Day in the US.

Really hoping it doesn't suck.

lol just noticed a major casting error in the DCEU. Now I'm okay with recasting actors when necessary which it is in this case because it's for a much earlier set movie, but some effort much surely be made to make it believable right? Not for the DCEU it seems.

The character is James Gordon. In Justice League he was played by J.K. Simmons. In next year's The Batman he will be played by Jeffery Wright. 

Can anyone see the problem here?




Not really sure what to think about this. If the movies didn't exist in the same continuity it wouldn't be a big deal, but they do. Major oversight? Politically correct casting gone mad? Or is the character the DCEU's answer to Michael Jackson? 

But most likely the DCEU team just realised by now that they really screwed the franchise up as a whole already so may as well just do an anything goes approach. LOL

Most people did not like Justice League so maybe they figured no one would notice if a character who didn't play a big role in that movie was suddenly a different race in the prequel Batman movie. Couldn't care less to be honest. I highly doubt this movie is going to rival Nolan's trilogy, which I think are and will remain the ultimate in DC movies. 

But yeah it is an odd choice considering they already established the character as white in this canon. I think Jeffery Wright is a good actor and will play the part fine, though.

Yes I'm sure he will too, but I can't help but wonder if this is some misguided attempt to tell us that we shouldn't be seeing colour when we look at people, which I don't personally think helps any racism issues. There is political correctness, which really should be synonymous with common sense and decency and there is stupidity. And the human race as a whole feels more and more like the latter every day to me. 

But I'm not going to pretend that the biggest issue for me personally in this example is that discontinuity in a franchise is a major pet peeve of mine. Filmmakers should know their franchise and not expect us to believe that a black character grew older and became a white man. That's really all there is to it.

My latest Last 100 Movies Seen For the First Time List Challenge is now online if anyone fancies a go.


I started on List Challenges to promote MMA, but I've posted a lot more movie lists by this point. They get more users and since I have the MMA name as my username still, it does that little bit to put the name out there to be seen. The Metal Music Archives LC account is these days in the top 100 List Makers. I am aiming to try to get it into at least the top 50 one day. 

Our most used MMA themed list remains the Trad Heavy Metal challenge with 363 users and counting.

Random trivia: The oldest movie I've seen, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, is 100 years old today.
