Aeon's Daily Crap

Welcome to my daily crap.  This place isn't for the fair hearted, you've been warned.  This is a place where I publish some small thoughts and observationss.  These thoughts all have a focus on comic's, comic book films, or film/Television.

You've been entering the thought toilet bowl of Aeon River's brain.


Here is how I see Last Jedi:  NO Spoilers

This film is like making a huge soup out of the most expensive ingredients in the world, having the best cooks in the world make it.  Then right before its served some dude walks in and takes a huge steaming dump in the pot.  Then the soup is served.  It might still taste good but its pretty hard to overlook the steaming pile of shit that was dropped into it.
Now imagine that some people saw the guy take the crap into the soup and another group didn't.  The group didn't see the guy take a dump say "Yoh this soup if fantastic!"  "This is like the best soup ever"  "Omg I love this soup so much better than Campbells"
While as the group that saw the guy take the poop are like "Dude Your are freaking eating POOP!"
Then the other guys respond "Why are you being so hysterical, its good soup, stop hating".
Then a large argument begins in which one side screams "Poop" and the otherside screams "Hater".

And thus you get the Last Jedi.

I have been trying to process Star Wars the Last Jedi. I don't want to spoil anything but in all honesty the truth behind this movie is that its a lot of flashy wrappers with nothing inside.  Its not bad, but its immensely disapointing for anyone who dreams of what would come after Return of the Jedi.  This movie kills those dreams.  This film is the Romans storming Carthage, they are not content with just winning they want to kill everyone and then salt the fields so nothing could ever grow there again.  This movie ends completly the dreams of those who grew up with that original trilogy.  It then creates something else.

The other thing this film creates is not bad, its pretty interesting, but is different.

Critics enjoy this film and I see why, it is a good movie.  It is only those that care about the mythos that was pooped on that will hate it.  If you are a fan of that mythos then this film is going to be hard to swallow.  George Lucas hates this film, I know he did not say it, but trust me he does.  Make no doubt about it.  This film razed all of his ideas and takes his universe to a dramatically different place.

Is the film bad, no.  It is very entertaining, it has lots of feels.  However, if I ran this franchise I would have never gone this way.  This film is kind of like inheriting a lamburgini and filling its fuel tank with sugar.  Everything looks fine from the outside but you have baddly injured its engine.  Maybe a better take would using NOS on a lamburgini something that provides a short term boost but hurts it for the long haul.

 In order for people to want to see the next film they are going to have baddly care about Rey and Kylo Ren.  My issue with this is that I don't really care about them. When I left the film I asked myself will I see the next Star Wars film in the theater or wait for it to come out on video.  This is the first Star Wars film I've left asking that question.  It likely won't be the last.

One of my freinds put it like this.

If Tolkien had not finished writing Return of the King and Rian Johnson had come in to complete it the end of the trilogy would have gone like this.  Frodo would suddenly die, be replaced by Sam who would then die in a fight with Golumn.  A random girl who is smarter and better than both will pick up the ring but be stopped by a new villain.  The two will talk then decide to kill Sauron and rule Mordor themselves.  Meanwhile Aragorn, Legolas and Gimili will get chastised for fighting too hard by the Lady of Lothl├│rien who will take over command from out of no where.

It kind of works, it is a good story, but is entirely disjointed from everything else you have seen before.

DC Metal continues to amaze.  Here are some peaks at a couple new variants.  November 15ths Justice League 33 varaint cover by Nick Bradshaw and Dark Nights: Metal #4 by Jim Lee coming out Dec 20.
Really dig this Batman versus the creepy zombie Super Man by Jim Lee.  That cover really has a gritty and haunting quality.

Oct 18 - New COMIC BOOK DAY!

Its New Comic Book Day and here is what I am readying!

 Cable is awesome get that for sure, Thor 700 and Luke Cage are both pretty cool check out those.  I really dig the Luke Cage Lenticular Cover.    The Cable book as far as a story goes is my favorite from Marvel I really like this story its kind of like Legends of Tomorrow but with Cable.  The Luke Cage book has Cage going back to jail for some BS charges I dig it.  These Legacy books all have their characters going back to their roots in some fashion.

Batman #33 Rules of Engagement - This is pretty cool it is about Batman's engagement to Catwoman and the pair ride off into the desert and kick of their engagement.  Interesting stuff then happens.

Batman the Drowned - A female Aquaman that wants to drown everyone this is her Origin.  Just like the othe evil Batman origin one shots this is really good.

Captain Phasma #4 - This booked ends the Phasma series right where she will enter the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  I liked it a bit less than the others but its still cool to see where she ends up.

Maestros from Image this is a book for adults.  No joke on that.  Very good though cool characters, cool idea great art.

Sherlock Frankenstein & The Legion of Evil by Jeff Lemire this is really good based off the world of Black Hammer I want to get a review of this.  Very cool issue.  Actually I am going to say this is my top pick for today.

Oct 17 - Black Panther and Polybius Dreams!
The latest Black Panther trailer is really amazing.  A growing worry I have though is will there be a Black Panther 2?  I think there needs to be but I can't make heads of tales where the MCU is going.  I even know where I would take a Panther in a sequel.  I would have the Midnight Angels story as a challenge to T'Challa's reign.

I am working a few reviews now starting with a review of Polybius Dreams Chapter 1 a comic about an Arcade game that has a seeming paranormal influence over a small town.  Polybius Dreams is an original comic based off an urban myth of a killing arcade game.  Its a killer concept with stand out art work.  If I had to compare it to something I wold say a cross between Stranger Things, Twilight Zone and Tron.  The Kickstarter for Polybius Dream Chapter 2 is out now.  They have some awesome things available in the Kickstarter and the best part is their options to get both Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 at a reasonable price.  I dig the art of this please support this Kickstarter.  Check out those arcade stickers!

Oct - FRIDAY THE 13th
Some spooky trailers dropped on Friday the 13th and that is just perfect.

First we get an uber dark New Mutants trailer (You can see it HERE)
This movie is a daring departure of the typical super hero film where by super hero will be in an encapsulated horror story.  The villain in the series will be the haunting monster the Ghost Bear.  The trailer gave no mistake of where this film is going and what it is trying to do.  It is going to be scary.

Then we got a Stranger Things 2nd trailer (You can see it HERE)  For me the big thing in this trailer was that we see more Eleven!  I can't wait for this damn show to start.  What a delicious Halloween treat this show is going to be.  Also comic fans check out the Halloween Comic Fest which is basically free comic book day mixed with Halloween.  Stranger Things is helping sponsor the event and some Stranger Things goodies will be given out along with the comics.

Oct-12-2017 - Harley Creative staff shake up

We are going to start off with a real freaking turd.
Say it ain't so! News today that Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti have announced their departure from DC's Harley Quinn.  The pair will be exiting the book on December 20's Harley Quinn #34.  Apparently the pair are trying to pull a Michael Jordan retirment and go out on a high note.  Last month's Harley Quinn rampaged its way to the top 10 in sales.  Going to be sad to see these 2 go off this book their name have become synomous with it.  Palmiotti says the pair will go on vacation and take a break but.......may return down the line.  To add to Harley fans despair Harley is going to lose somone close to her which will likely lead to #34 being a very somber book.  What can I say I love these 2 they are funny and nice as hell, they are joy to run into, wish them the best and can't wait to see what they do next.

Positive Turd - Riverdale premiered last night and was absolutely delicious.  Yes that's right this is a delicious turd deal with it. Some how this fast paced show seemed to go even faster.  Its like everyone in that little town drinks Red Bull all the time.

Marvel has some new books that look exciting a series forcusing on Storm written by Coates and a new Moon Knight series starting with issue #188 with Max Bemis and Jacen Burrows at the helm watch for this in Nov.

Thor Ragnarok sounds like its going to be the Thor and Hulk movie that Marvel fans have wanted.  Jame's Gunn's endorsed the heck out of it and I'm taking that to the bank.  This is a thing is going to be good.

More will be dropped here tomorrow.......what can I say I am very regular!   Save this link and swing by tomorrow to see whats floating.

You can blame Aeon River for this Sh BEEP:
Yell at me on my Facebook or ya know just stop by and say hi.  I'm mostly active.  And I am nice all the time that I am not being a complete and total dick.

I really think my posts should magically end with a song from the drop kick murphys blasting but when I tried to add it, it became annoying as all just imagine it!
