Does every zombie thing still do the "these aren't like your zombie movie zombies!" thing? Unfortunately I feel like America's favourite socially acceptable mass murder fantasy isn't going anywhere.

What is the Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō to very other zombie thing's Mad Max?

Is that even a thing though? Zombies all tend to be the exact same as far as I know. That's part of why they're all so damn boring.

Now vampires; THOSE are the guys nobody can keep straight.

So everything is coming out in April now. New Better Call Saul, Fargo, MST3k and now American Gods. So I think April wants to keep me real busy.

Frankly, anyone and everyone who had to work with Joker Leto deserves an Oscar.

A trainwreck of an Oscars show could not end any other way than as a complete clusterfuck.

At least Best Picture went to Moonlight. Even watching the short clip they showed made me feel a twinge of emotion.

Of all possible upsets, I'm really surprised it was Moonlight, too. It makes me wonder if it was a close race all around. Second genuinely great movie in a row to win Best Pic.

So glad that Moonlight won. It makes a big difference for a film like this, which will get a much wider audience than it could have otherwise (not just in the US but also especially around the world) thanks to this win.

lol at casey fucking affleck over denzel washington tho

Affleck is actually great in Manchester by the Sea, which is one of the all-around better BP nominees in recent memory, IMO. The harassment allegations definitely took a lot of the shine off of his win, though.

I still don't quite know what to make of this Moonlight win. The artsy movie never wins. This is like if Boyhood won, or the Social Network, or Lost in Translation. Either way I'm pleasantly surprised.

I haven't seen Manchester or Fences but I haven't gotten the impression that Denzel was particularly amazing in the latter. Dude's got two statues.

Had to edit my post because it gave the opposite of the intended meaning. Not out here defending rapists but I don't know that Denzel losing is a travesty.

Edited the post again because I worded it correctly the first time, lol

Kimmel is on Simmons' podcast telling Oscars stories with Cousin Sal*, and he pointed out that the screwup was a gigantic missed opportunity:

- Best Actor and Actress rotate as the second-last category.
- This year, of course, Actress was second-last.
- If it was the other way around - and the guy from PWC does everything else exactly, which I suppose is the flaw in this theory - the envelope at the end would've been Casey Affleck's for Manchester By The Sea.
- So Faye Dunaway could've gone with that movie.
- Manchester By The Sea's award, if it had won, would've been accepted by its producer, Matt Damon.

So the scenario at the end of the show would've been Kimmel trying to yank the Best Picture award away from Matt Damon. As Jimmy said "if that had happened, we'd still be on stage fighting."

* - Sal had a five-way parlay ruined by the screwup, as he had La La Land to win. Poor guy.

Searching for something to distract Isley for a few minutes while I got ready this morning and it appears that there is a sequel to Mr. Roger's neighborhood currently airing on PBS. It stars a cartoon tiger rather than a kindly Christian. Seems completely watchable but not sure how I feel about this. I haven't seen this stupid tiger change his cardigan or shoes once!

No exquisitely detailed city model with working trolley, no sale.

(Gods, how much I just wanted to live in Mr. Rogers' house with the train as a kid.)

I saw a stage performance of the Rocky Horror Show last night.

Sword of Damocles is a really good song and it's a shame it was cut from the film.

Edit: wait, the wiki is saying it was in the film but not on the soundtrack? I don't remember it all though.

Take-away: I'm super stupid I'm sorry I posted

Edit edit edit: I reviewed the film version. The song is a bit overshadowed by antics, maybe that's why it didn't stand out.

Hulk talks about Logan some, but this is mostly reflection on the difference between the storytelling function and the "essence" of movies, and how his preference for the former often puts him on the flip side of popular opinion. I thought it was good.

I think it's also worth noting that he's completely ditched the Hulk-speak, including the "Hulk" pronouns.

I used to find his staunch refusal to do this annoying, but after sticking to his guns for so long I can't help but find this disappointing now. He was a bulwark in these dark times.
