Debt to Cinema

Debt to Cinema 085: Howard the Duck

Always a fan of seeing the worser things in cinema, I’d been meaning to get around to this culturally aborted Lucasfilm/Marvel bomb. As a fan of Waterworld, or better yet, Bio-Dome, how bad could it be? The premise and talent makeup sound quacktastic, but this bizarre, 1980s failure, despite bright moments, is far from being a campy romp.

Two Cents 084: I Just Can’t Wait to Be King

The episode in which we intro a new segment, Hulu might be producing a shared Stephen King universe show, Amazon’s Costume Quest series(!!!), hiphoptherobot’s early Nintendo Switch delivery, Donald Glover is Simba 2.0, and the first wedding hosted in VR. Steve watched Justice League Dark, Harold Lloyd’s Speedy, and Flyboys; while I caught John Wick Chapter 2, went further into Lego Dimensions, and started Grim Fandango. Plus, IMAX VR’s first Experience Centre, developments in staged VR, and how all three can learn from Japanese arcades, Microsoft bolstering voice recognition, Pewdiepie’s anti-semetic fall from grace, Roman Polanski, Mel Gibson, all telecos now offer unlimited LTE plans, and A Cure For Wellness advertising with fake news.
