I bet you it’s that two faced bitch in accounting Batman’s really after…..
Hello and welcome back to the long awaited series of Mini Meh reviews back on Ooh Sometimes, and frankly it couldn’t a better one to start off the mutterings of a fat sleepy old fart than with something entirely geek-filled and a touch of sadness. Sadness not in the geek factor of the mini meh, but the sadness of what this 72 minute film represents.
The release of Batman Vs Two-Face is somewhat timely one can argue, as it’s not long till Justice League drops on our doorsteps, the latest in the DC cinematic car crash being presided over by various people with large budgets, bad scripts, moody f**kers and the desire to make as much money as Marvel / Disney have done. Wonder Woman may have bought the DC Universe and Warner Bros some time and goodwill from the fans, but it’s looking very unlikely that Justice will do anything other than put a further nail in the coffin of the entire series.
In fact, given that Wonder Woman was the only film to be widely praised, including on this very blog and indeed a sequel is forthcoming for that alone so far, it wouldn’t be hard to imagine a huge reboot effort would come if the Justice League can’t bring justice to the huge lore and characters it all comes from.
Last year was particularly bad. Batman Vs. Superman was saggy pants to be polite about it, and with the other content released, the animated release of the 60s Batman, along with some of the original cast from then in Return of the Caped Crusaders by default became the best Batman film of 2016. It had humour, lots of references and nods to the 60s TV series, and a wonderful story which actually went places we never expected. It was just a welcome relief to enjoy Batman’s silly side once again, and given the success, a sequel was quickly given the go-ahead. Continue reading →
Another long time since the last Aftermath video and now finally after well over a year waiting, Thor Ragnarok finally arrived on the Big Screen. Bringing back the family of Odin together, fighting the Hulk and Cate Blanchett being naughty, did the film leave me thundering with laughter and joy or did it make me angry and want to turn green? Watch on and find out….. I try to avoid spoilers but I had to fight the urge…..
Not content with watching Blade Runner tonight, I also stumbled out of a viewing of the Lego Ninjago Movie which was on preview release this weekend ahead of general release next week. Will the Lego fun fall apart in this one or will I end up bricking it? Let’s see…..
Having just exited the very posh cinema screen showing the sequel to Blade Runner, starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, did this make me want to do a runner? There will be another video discussing the story etc posted soon…
Aside from a lack of contact over September, except for pictures of the front room being redone and a couple of livestreams last week, I’ve still not gotten around to doing the mini-mehs yet, of which a great many of them remain to be done.
Which will not help as October promises to bring quite a number of good things our way and why the devil shouldn’t I do my jolly least to meh about some of it?
This weekend I will be livestreaming for sure with new games and old, and then hopefully setting up a schedule for new stuff when I can.
Sorry for being missing all this time folks but hopefully it will get better as time goes on. This is only a brief message and I will try to do more details over the coming days.
Also….. I really need to stop watching the news….. Makes Keeping up with the Kardashians look like Downton abbey…… #fakelife
Take it easy campers and I’ll see you soon!
I’m back baby! It’s the first Aftermath video in some time and this time, I give you my thoughts on Kingsmen: The Golden Circle, the sequel to the utterly brilliant Kingsmen: The Secret Service. Starring Colin Firth, Mark Strong and a huge number of other stars, will this save us again from bland bond films of recent times, or will it take another spy to save Queen and country?
Recorded rather badly, this Q&A with Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero before the Best F(r)iends screening was so entertaining itself that I had to start capturing it. This folks is only a small amount of what you missed out on. Enjoy!
It’s true, it’s really true. Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero of the infamous bad film, The Room, is back. In this brand new movie, can lightening strike twice and send us all down a dark, twisted and hilariously bad hole? Watch on and find out my initial thoughts of the work in progress screening I witnessed….
Hello there campers, as you may or may not know, I’m going to be busy through most of September doing various naughty things involving paint and trips to IKEA.
Because I’m middle-aged basically. Dear god, I will be turning 35 soon…. I’m already dead inside and it’s only a matter of time before the body fails too…. (cries in a corner)
That means of course that a decent amount of content that I tend to make when I can be arsed, like livestreams etc. will be on the back-burner for a fair bit. Hopefully though the mini meh reviews will still be completed and we’ve got a good number of those due over September including;
The Hitman’s Bodyguard
The Dark Tower
Best F(r)iends – Yes, the new Tommy Wiseau movie…..dear god yes….
Kingsmen: The Golden Circle
21st and 22nd September, I return to Birmingham for more fun at the EGX Expo, to see what new gaming goodness is present and to spend far too much money on even more geek tat. Woo. So expect badly put together YouTube videos on that front!
I still have thoughts about changes and other content to do and a potential rebrand type thing as well, but that will come much later, due to my laziness more than anything I suspect. So there you are dear readers, hopefully I will be haunting you again soon with more bad videos and awful Photoshop images! BYE!
In the second of this week’s random preview screenings, I watch the frankly baffling and wtf that is American Made. Starring Tom Cruise as Barry Seal, it shows how a pilot goes to be embroiled in drugs, guns and money laundering. All secretly for various US government agencies! So was this well made or would it just fall apart?
