SHIELD ended its latest season, not with one bang–but with several.  Ghost Rider’s bad assery came second only to Coulson’s.  The Ada comeuppance was equally satisfying and unsettling (plus apparently didn’t come cheap).  And most of the characters have a lot of interesting baggage to carry them into the next season.

The only thing left by the wayside was Radcliffe  His selflessness at the end–his repeated selflessness–wasn’t acknowledged by anybody.  I know that dude did some bad things, but I think he deserved at least the tiniest shout-out by Daisy and/or Yo-Yo.

Even being a raging Whedon fan, this show continues to surpass my expectations.  I can’t wait to see where the next season goes.

I don’t know what’s going on in this panel … but I’m reasonably certain Superman’s being a jerk about it.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is like a million count crayon box with a whole buncha heart.  Vol 1 was one of those rare gems that very little will top–including its successor–but anybody who dug the first one won’t be disappointed by the second.  And you’re definitely gonna leave the theatre with a big ol’ dumb grin on your face.

This monster of a branch fell from one of my trees yesterday and imbedded into the ground like a lawn dart from hell.  I’m not saying it takes the courage of Batman to mow my yard … but it at least takes the courage of Booster Gold.

The new dude playing Spider-Man admits to never having seen the original Star Wars trilogy.  For some reason, that makes me feel really freaking old.

ghost-in-the-shell-poster-new-1280-1485383801212_1280w.jpgThere aren’t many anime I gravitate towards.  I generally don’t like the way they’re paced or the tone is inconsistent (super-serious and mature one moment and very childish the next).  I recognize what they do and that many of them do it well.  It’s just simply not my thing.

There are a couple however that I really dig, such as Cowboy Bebop and–as you might have guessed–Ghost in the Shell.  I’ve been excited about seeing this live-action adaptation since I heard of its release and, I’ve gotta say, I thought the movie was really well done.  The action is pretty and fun.  It captures the philosophy of the story without overstaying its welcome.  And, above all, the filmmakers did a great job Westernizing the story without losing any of the essential Ghost in the Shell elements.  It’s a shame that it’s not doing well in the U.S.

If you’re on the fence, get off.  Go see it.
