dewline: (comic books)
You know how for years, people wanted Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill play out the dialogue of The Killing Joke, and eventually we got that direct-to-video movie out of that desire of the audience?

Well, there's the first ten(?) pages of Jessica Jones # 8 from Marvel this past month. Two characters, Jones herself and Maria Hill, in Jessica's bathroom. Spoiler-free as I can make it, it's a combination plot-infodump, airing of grievances, confessionals, and contract negotiations between the two characters.

I would like to see/hear Krysten Ritter and Cobie Smulders play out that scene in character.

...and Doctor Strange was as good as I'd hoped it would be. Yes, a tad formulaic, but at times like these days, there's a not-so-strange comfort in that aspect of it. Some good visual nods to Ditko's original design work in the 1960's comics work there. If anyone here has an opinion on the 3D-formatted edition, I'd be glad to read that, good or ill.

I've read on Facebook from several sources that William Christopher AKA Father Francis Mulcahy from M*A*S*H has died. He won't have been the last to die this year, but that hurts a lot of people across the planet anyway, because he and his colleagues on that series helped keep a lot of people from hurting worse than we already were for a couple of decades. Even after the series ended on CBS, because re-runs and later on, tapes and DVDs (and I assume iTunes and the like are keeping the effect going too now).

Thank you, Mr. Christopher.

There might be more later in the evening...

About the first: I'm not making any of those. Because I don't know if I'll end breaking them, whether by accident or necessity, before next year is out.

About the second: I'm going to close out this year by finally seeing Doctor Strange tonight. It's the last movie I've yet to see by design this year, having taken care of Rogue One the other week.

So those are some of my plans for the foreseeable future.

So, someone came up with an idea for a SHIELD-themed hockey jersey. They're not going to try selling it because of legal considerations, but aside from the comment I posted on that page...I have no complaints about the design. ;-)

One thing that it leaves me thinking about: house leagues. My Dad's old office had a "house" league for curling enthusiasts (and both my parents curled, FYI). Given the size of SHIELD as oft-depicted in the comics, I find it easy to imagine there being enough hockey fans in SHIELD to be able to put together a "house" league for that sport. (And curling, too, now that I think about it!)

The logistics of organizing games are...entertainingly problematic, shall we say?

Okay, I should have seen that ending reveal coming. But I didn't.

Classic tropes nested within each other, though...

Yeah, this is a bit of a fanboy whine here. We've still got to wait about...three months for the launch of the new series on TV, right?

So I'll keep the whine to these three sentences.

I'd announced a Friday trip to see Iron Man 3 in normal, 2-D format on the Ottawa SF Society's meetup.com page. The only thing I thought I needed to worry about was which theatre for us to meet at.

Either the movie theatre chains or Disney-Marvel - perhaps both, as I am not privy to the details - may have pre-empted my plans and forced me to wait for the DVD.

I'm not seeing any times for this upcoming Friday night at any Ottawa movie theatre via ottawakiosk.com as of this morning.

Okay, this is going to be getting a fair bit of ink and bandwidth...

I read this off of the Newsarama blog re: the next Iron Man movies. Yes, the plural was intended.

It looks to me as if Favreau and company are on a good, solid track for their planned hat trick. I look forward to enjoying the consequences of his choices.
