    In the wake of Steve Ditko's recent passing, I watched In Search of Steve Ditko, a BBC documentary about his career and history. It's fairly comprehensive, and fun to watch. The best part is the interview with Stan Lee, where he tells his version of the relationship between the two. While this probably won't settle any fan arguments, I think it's a very fair look at the subject. It's too bad Ditko himself never went on the record.

    Current Rewatch Rank: 43/142.

      We watched COCO. Another Pixar tearjerker. Maybe it's no INSIDE OUT but I liked it a lot.

        Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.

        This movie. Man.

        It's fun that they brought the cast of the '66 TV show back for some animatd films. It's a fun way to extend a franchise. And I'm even willing to accept the ridiculous, over-the top plot (like the TV dinner deathtrap) and tongue in cheek humor as being consistent with the show. The problem is the voices. West and Ward play the same characters as they did 50 years ago, but they both sound like old men. It's hard to accept a "Boy" Wonder who sounds like somebody's grandpa.

        Current Rewatch Rank: 116/152.

            Not sure that is what I was thinking, but then again - any woman that can stretch like that is not one to say no to...

              The Death of Superman animated film was great. Adapting the story to fit the characters as they exist in the Post-Flashpoint DC Animated Universe isn't hard, and adds somewhat more poignancy. As much as I loved the original storyline, seeing Doomsday throwing down with Wonder Woman and the Flash makes him seem a lot more menacing than Blue Beetle or Booster Gold. The film doesn't rush through the story either -- it's paced nicely and ends on a dandy cliffhanger. Even the slower beats from the comic, such as Bibbo Bibbowski's recitation of a Hail Mary, carries a strong emotional punch.

              And Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor? Assistant to the Legion of Doom no more. He rocks.

              Current Rewatch Rank: 30/165.

                Ditto--same last movie watched.

                And similar sentiments. I enjoyed it in and of itself; noticed the obvious changes and such for fitting the animated universe.

                Bibbo's piece always gets me. (seems like one of THE key "moments" that are the entire point OF having a "death of Superman" story at all.

                  I finally saw Ant Man and The Wasp - and enjoyed it very much. As expected.

                  Though, they couldn't have dropped a much more obvious hint that a time-displaced Ant Man will be in Captain Marvel, but that's probably fine...

                    Just watched Seoul Station, the animated prequel to the zombie movie Train to Busan. Despite having the same writer, the prequel didn't grab me as much as the live-action one did. Hopefully the sequel fares better.

                      Finally saw Deadpool 2. It took long enough to see this film -- the perils of having a baby in the house. We just can't go to the movies all the time anymore, so we had to wait for Blu-Ray. I really enjoyed the first Deadpool movie. The second one amplifies everything -- it's somehow more ridiculous, more over-the-top, and loaded down with so many jokes and Easter Eggs you need a scorecard to keep track of them all. The movie is simultaneously a parody of and a perfect example of absurd 90s comic book excess.

                      I may be in the minority here, but I think I liked this one better than the last one.

                      But there's one thing driving me crazy. And it's a spoiler. And I don't know how to do spoiler tags.

                        To make spoiler tags, write spoiler in [ ] brackets. Then text you want to spoil. Then write /spoiler in [ ]. The spoiled text should be covered.

                          I don't know if I liked it more or not, but I liked it about as much. Which is about perfect.

                          Now if they can ever find a way to bring in T-Ray into one of these.

                          And oh - one gripe. Black Tom Cassidy was TOTALLY wasted on this film. That was the best they could come up with for him? I mean, the running gag was funny, but there was no reason he had to die...

                            Okay, here's my question, then: Is Vanessa really dead or not? I mean, are the credit sequences canon, or are we supposed to just take that to be a joke?

                              She's alive. This ain't DC. No need to be that dark. But perhaps she'll become a hero in her own right.

                                LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League - Gotham City Breakout

                                These LEGO movies are always fun, but I think this may be my favorite. Batman's family decides to take him on a vacation, which turns out to lead to a battle with Deathstroke. Meanwhile, the Justice League and Teen Titans are trying to keep Gotham safe in his absence, and learn it may be more difficult than they'd imagined. This is the funniest depiction of Superman in the series -- they've always played up the Boy Scout angle to the character, but he gets even MORE corn-fed in this installment, insisting that Robin get to bed at a decent hour and totally underestimating the "powerless" villains of Gotham City. The two stories run parallel without really converging in the end, so it's almost like watching two movies at once. And it's a lot of fun.

                                Current Rewatch Rank: 53/177.
