Here are some words about the upcoming CosGala from YouTuber and founder of Gamer’s Guide, Jemarc Axinto:
Color Commentary returns and this time we’re taking on the 2016 animated motion picture, Batman: Bad Blood.
This commentary is done in complete satire and is intended for a mature audience and is meant for entertainment purposes only. In other words, if you take any of this seriously, you are a fracking idiot.
In honor of the nationwide “snow day,” Color Commentary is back and this time it is taking on Disney’s Frozen. But don’t let the weather or the movie title fool you. No chill will be found in this post.
Color Commentary is done in complete satire, intended for mature audiences, and meant for entertainment purposes. In other words, if you take any of this seriously, you are a fracking idiot.
So last week I provided live-streaming color commentary while watching Batman vs. Robin.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, my color commentary is essentially done in the spirit of Mystery Science Theater 3000, you know if it was narrated by Dave Chappelle and Paul Mooney.
The commentary is pretty much spoiler free.
Now that San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone, the geekosphere is slowly recovering from yet another event-filled summer week of blockbuster teasers, secret announcements, and surprise reveals. The biggest news of the weekend was probably Zack Snyder surprising Hall H with an exclusive first look at Gal Gadot in full Wonder Woman regalia. DC’s new cinematic trinity — Gadot, Ben Affleck, and Henry Cavill — even joined Snyder on stage to tease actual footage from the movie.
The move made Batman v Superman the buzziest movie presentation to emerge out of San Diego by far. And to be honest, I think Gadot looks fantastic as Wonder Woman. Yeah, the internet’s got jokes, but I think the costume successfully threads the needle between comic book accurate and live action practical. For me, though, the thing that I find disconcerting about Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman isn’t how she looks, but what she believes.
Last week, we crossed 1,000 “likes” on Facebook and 1,000 followers on Twitter. I mentioned that to thank you all for upping our numbers on both social media platforms, we would be giving away some toys. So, that’s what we’re going to do!
