Review: ‘Black Cat’ #3 Closes Out King In Black Arc By Exploring The Heart, Soul, And Mind Of Felicia Hardy
When it comes to comic series that tie into massive events, the best ones are those that are able to take the backdrop of the event and bend it to fit into the ongoing narrative of the series. That is exactly what has been done with Marvel’s Black Cat which wraps up its part in King in Black with the relaunched series’ third issue.
Everything about this tie-in issue is just as fun, explosive,…
Not to be confused with the ill-advised adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, Dark Tower is a 1989 horror obscurity. Credited director Ken Barnett is a pseudonym for the two filmmakers who helmed the movie: Ken Wiederhorn (Return of the Living Dead II) was replaced mid-production by Freddie Francis (Tales from the Crypt) in what would be his last feature directorial effort. The movie is uneven, but it’s difficult to tell if that’s a result of two clashing voices or merely a subpar script.
That script - written by Wiederhorn, Robert J. Avrech (Body Double), and Ken Blackwell (Annabelle’s Wish) - starts off strong with a pair of freak deaths. Set in a new, luxury high-rise in downtown Barcelona, the film opens with a window washer plummeting to his death, followed soon after by an elevator crushing a security guard. When a colleague goes on an uncharacteristic shooting spree in the building, the bizarre occurrences are too much for security consultant Dennis Randall (Michael Moriarty, The Stuff) to dismiss as mere coincidence.
House of M by Brian Michael Bendis
Since like most MCU fans I’m currently watching WandaVision, I also decided to reread Brian Michael Bendis‘s House of M
WARNING, spoilers ahead for both the 80’s west coast avengers series and Avengers disassembled.
I said it the first time I read this comic and I’ll say it again now, the House of M series is one of the best Marvel comics that I have read. Dealing largely with the aftermath and consequences of Avengers Disassembled and spanning over two parts, it focuses on the mental state of The Scarlet witch and her reality warping reaction to both dealing with the loss of children she manifested and the deaths of her fellow avengers. In a drastic measure to avoid her execution, Wanda, Pietro and Magneto alter reality, creating a new world where mutants are the majority and Magneto is the ruler.
It seems poor Wanda just can’t catch a break in the Marvel comics, the events of her entire arc are enough to send anyone insane, let alone someone who struggles to control her powers. Rather like Lena Luthor from the televised Supergirl series, The Scarlet Witch is neither a villain nor a hero and I think that’s why I like her so much. You just never know what she is going to do next. On a whole The Scarlet Witch has got to be one of the most complex and layered characters in the Marvel universe. Her arc is sometimes contradictory, but always interesting.
I love a good reality altering story, Bendis has penned a gripping, high stakes plot with some great world building. The new reality and its iconic characters feel very familiar and yet give a fresh and new dynamic at the same time. The standout moment of the whole series, and probably what it’s most famous for, has to be its cliffhanger ending, but I won’t say anything more on that other than I really hope that concept is what the MCU is heading towards.
Oliver Coipel’s artwork really brings it all to life, it’s beautifully drawn.
I was kind of disappointed to see during the end credits that this was based on a true story, a memoir no less. That’s why I’ll put 4 stars instead of 4.5.
Watching all Golden Globes nominated movies, this one was one of the standouts with a well-written and paced story that, albeit somewhat predictable, managed to stay entertaining and believable at the same time.
This is the early life story of J.D. Vance, who gets pushed to try to escape the pitfalls of his environment by his grandmother (‘mamaw’). Think parallels with Felix van Groeningen’s 2009 film 'The Misfortunates’, which is basically the same movie (also an autobiographical book adaptation, also with a caring grandma, also with the same past-present narrative), but set in Belgium in the 1980’s.
The acting here is excellent. Glenn Close steals the show as mamaw with convincing (non-)verbal delivery of all her scenes. Amy Adams is excellent too, but snowed-under by Close. She manages to range from likeable to utterly despicable, something I see as a strong point, while others may dislike her work because of it.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the current scores are 15% on the 'tomatometer’ and 85% for audience. When I started digging deeper into the 'professional’ movie critics’ 'reviews’, I grew sad. Many of these 'reviews’ that aggregated that 15% weren’t about the film. They were about the source material: the memoir and its author.
They were disqualified not because of the content, but the political affiliation of its creator. Applauding someone who does not share the dogmatic view of the writer’s bubble seems 'not done’ in 2021. Should I dismiss (or “dissect, challenge or eviscerate”, to speak in the words of The Atlantic’s David Sims) this movie because I don’t agree with the political views of the author? No, I should not (and neither should they, for that matter, if you ask me. It’s tacky.)
Anyway, this is not a movie that will make you like or dislike Donald Trump, even though the author of the book it was based on supports him. And the movie is also is not a scientific research endeavor into the minds and culture of any group or social class in American society. This film doesn’t generalize, it doesn’t stigmatize. It’s the adaptation of a memoir, and thus intrinsically subjective. Try to make it anything other than that by adding your own context, and you’re responsible for the new narrative that’s created — it has nothing to do with this film.
Fendi - fall 2021
The RTW debut of Kim Jones at Fendi cleverly recruited the full rainbow of today’s neutrals to unify a wide gamut of, well, clothes. The pieces were predominantly wearable, accessible, invitingly quotidian – not editorial showstoppers. Updated sportswear staples like pleated trousers, midi skirts, trench coats, chunky knits, and button ups all came together like a seasoned chorus in shades ranging from camel to rosewood to grays and blacks, mostly eschewing embellishment in favor of rich texture juxtapositions.
Sure, the plush fringe evoked Bottega’s recent take, but Donna Karan’s influence was ultimately more prominent. From off-shoulder midi dresses to sharp suiting separates cut, her brand of sensual 90s minimalism echoed through much of the presentation. The coats stood out as the pieces to top customer wishlists, and that’s a smart move for our era: buy one quality coat and wear it on top of last year’s suit or this year’s athleisure. And while you’re at Fendi, maybe try some clean separates that will easily harmonize with your wardrobe.
I confess I do miss the art school bent to Fendi shows under Silvia and Karl, but Jones shows he handily understands the house’s strengths and the zeitgeist. I look forward to seeing more of his work and more of my wishlist.
KPOP MV REVIEW – THE BOYZ EDITION (‘BREAKING DAWN’)
Welcome to another KPOP MV Review, and today very out of nowhere I dedicated to sneak in another review between two already planned ones because I just could not wait to check out THE BOYZ’s ‘Breaking Dawn’ music video, which is what I believe is their 1st JP release. So since it’s already out, I have to watch & review their MV because tbz is a group I literally fell in love with since last year…

Over the Moon is a delightful kid’s adventure film and if you haven’t seen it, go and watch it! You are missing out on a beautiful story with such a touching ending. It has its flaws but those are so minor when compared to its impact.

This was a sweet little animated feature that was more impressive with its visuals than the story. It soars especially at the start and end with the real-world environments, which are simply stunning, some of the best I’ve seen. While still decent, the middle part of the story is less impressive and the visuals go down to ‘good’ for a while – it’s a contrast with the really excellent work earlier on.
Nevertheless, overall this is a decent production that should entertain people of all ages.

This movie, while not great, is not as bad as it’s made out to be. While reading other reviews, I found that most seem to focus not on the story or content of the film, but on the fact that someone without autism performed the titular autistic character.
** Newsflash!** This is a movie.
In a movie actors get paid to act a role that is not themselves. I would be hard pressed to believe that this movie could have been made with a starring role of an actor who actually lives with the type of autism that is portrayed here. And no, that does not mean that a movie like this should not be made. If you don’t want to watch it, don’t .
If you’re looking for a groundbreaking family drama, go watch something else. If you want to watch a somewhat entertaining creative audiovisual hodgepodge that’s trying to tell an uplifting story, then you won’t mind this one.

The 90’s J-Pop Roadmap: Favorite Blue – True Gate
If you were to map my musical DNA, a sizable portion would be indebted to 90’s J-pop. To me, this is a truly magical time in music, but it’s rarely discussed or shared outside of Japan.
Being an aficionado of certain sounds within this era, I’ve tracked down hundreds of highlights over the years. And I think it’s time to share my carefully curated playlists with the world.
With this in mind, we…
