The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

Not as consistently good as The Lego Movie, but a still a lot better than it has any right to be.



Spiderman: Shattered Demensions (2010)

A game I got on sale years ago. Not bad for what I payed, and not bad for a game based on a property. A few parts were extremely fun, but the more tedious parts dragged it down enough that I never made to to the end, putting it off again and again until I stopped thinking about it entirely.



Watchmen The Movie (2009)

I can't believe that someone could read Watchmen what must have been dozens or hundreds of times and still completely miss the point. The original comic book is a lot of things, but it's not subtle about the super heroes being pathetic and unheroic. It's like if someone made a detailed film adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, and the entire focus was on sewing costumes for school plays.



The (new) Tick - Season 2

Wow! I don't normally binge watch, but the end of every episode was just so hilarious and/or suspenseful. There's not much I can say without spoiling anything, but in point form:




Miss Fury


The Tick (new) - Season 1


You expect the Tick to be a bit weird, and I'm glad they updated the weirdness. Cartoony jokes, side-by-side with subtle running gags and callbacks, mixed with serious character development, gives this a feeling that is as awkward and unbalanced as it is engaging and hilarious.


The first two series were superheroes comedies for the time of cheap cartoons, Tim Burton's Batman, and Dark Age comics. This is the superhero comedy for the time of Zack Snyder, Chris Nolan's Batman, and 20+ spaghetti-tangled MCU movies.
