The MOCC 2 is about to begin!
Deviant Art's finest vs the most powerful team in the multiverse!
Can you save your universe?
So I got to see two of the movies I’ve been looking forward to in this year’s huge line-up of movies.
And it has been quite a year for movies, but I’m only gonna talk about the sci-fi, superhero, horror
with you guys cuz those are the ones I consider storytelling related.
First, for those who missed it, pages 39-40 have been posted and we’re past coming to a boil here, the pot has boiled over!
I know it's been a long ride, but we are mere panels away from the sense-shattering ending to the MOCC²
Let’s start with Guardians of the Galaxy #2...
A good time at the movies!
My favorite movie ever is James Cameron’s Aliens.
For me, it’s the closest thing to a perfect film ever made.
So you can imagine my excitement when there was a sequel announced, right, but Aliens 3 bombed.
Got my hopes up again for Aliens: Resurrection... bombed.
Aliens vs Predator.... bombed (although secretly I like that one, don't tell anybody)
Aliens vs Predator: Requiem... bombed!
Then Ridley Scott, director of the original Alien announces he's doing a prequel that will retcon the whole franchise and set everything straight... I hardly recognized it as an Aliens movie.
So I went in to Alien: Covenant with my expectations low... and I still got blindsided by how disappointing this movie was.
Performances, effects, cinematography, all fine. But the dumbest, nonsensical, story of them all. I wont go into spoilers, but exploring a planet you just discovered 5 minutes ago without environmental gear is 'Lost in Space' stupid!
If you like a little Cthulhu in your creeps then check out The Void.
I heard about this from a YouTube reviewer and since it was on Netflix I figured I'd give it a try and I’m glad I did.
I'm a veteran horror fan and I don’t rattle easy, but this movie is weird enough the creep you out on premise alone.
A silent, masked, murderous cult surrounds a secluded hospital in the middle of the night. As the hospitals skeleton crew, a few patients, and the sheriff fight to keep the cultist out one by one they begin to transform in to Lovecraft-ion monstrosities!
It's a disturbing combination of Hellraiser, From Beyond, and In the Mouth of Madness if you can imagine that.
Anyway, it's on Netflix right now so if you like getting the creeps go check it out!
Favs are awesome and appreciated, but feedback is priceless.
The Story so far...
