Live-Tweet February 21

Tonights live-tweet, at Midnight Pacific time, will be Freddie Vs. Jason. I love Freddie. I love Jason. So you would think these two together would be EPIC. But alas. It was not to be. Incidentally I also love bacon AND I love cookies. But bacon cookies would be vomit worthy. Let's see what kind of bacon cookie this movie is.

Nightwing just got a whole lot sexier.

So aside from the fact that Dick Greyson's ass is legendary, he's going to be voiced by Neil Patrick Harris in the upcoming animated feature of Under the Hood. Not gonna lie, I'm more excited about this than any (theorized) upcoming Batman 3 movie. For full details see here.

So slightly sad that Mark Hamil won't be reprising his Joker role, but it'll be a fresh look at the Joker I suppose. NOT TO MENTION THIS AMAZING TIE IN STATUE!(so excited it needed capslock)

Additionally, neato little history of Jason Todd (with photos GASP) From my twitter pal: History of Jason Todd .


In total honesty, this is probably my favorite convention. And not just because I live 10 miles away and don't have to buy a hotel room. It's always less crowded than Comic-Con and more comic oriented than Movie oriented. Comic-Con has certainly drifted into the land of big name Movies and Promoters. Which as a shameless hunter of free swag isn't necessarily a bad thing. But there's something about meeting people like Tim Sale, Mike Mignola and Greg Rucka in a much smaller setting that's somehow more intimate. 

I'm just about to buy my tickets which is a decade old ritual. Normally this marks the beginning of Con season, but the hype around comic-con has slightly distorted that since I now have to purchase next years Comic-Con tickets about 2 weeks after returning home from Comic-Con. Ah how life changes.

Population 436

Last nights Live Tweet was rather dull I must admit. The movie wasn't bad in a way to make fun of, it was just slow and dull and uninteresting. While it was desperately trying to be creepy and unsettling it was more just the same slightly creepy stare repeated over and over and over and over. The best thing about it was Fred Durst. Which is a sentence I NEVER thought I would type. 

This has taught me a meaningful lesson. Thrillers do not make good live tweets. Too much build-up for not much pay off equals not a whole lot to tweet about. Next weeks options:

Freddie Versus Jason
Seed (Directed by Uwe Boll)
Hell House

Last nights live tweet of Shrooms seemed to be a big success. (If you didn't follow it you should have: Kil1ertofu) Next week I'll be live tweeting a movie called Population 436. Here's the plot:

A census-taker (Sisto) is sent to investigate why a certain small town has had the same population -- 436 residents -- for the last 100 years.

And where it gets good? Staring Fred Durst. I know. I'm excited too. So this movie promises to be absolutely awful. Which should make for amazing tweeting. Population 436 is available on Netflix instant watch if you care to follow along. Tune in next Sunday at Midnight (Pacific Time). Prepare for awesome.
