Just remember, you can ruin the day of anyone by telling them that they blink weirdly.

Best story of the week

Meme5

Here’s something bittersweet: Taika Waitit’s Akira movie is being indefinitely delayed BUT the silver lining here is that the Kiwi can now get to work on a sequel to the best Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. Say what you want about Avengers: Endgame and that one specific moment, but Ragnarok is the Marvel formula perfected: Charming, exciting and packing plenty of attitude into a tale that ties into a greater narrative in the grand scheme of things.

That, and I’m just hoping that Korg makes an appearance. Just don’t let him near any scissors, okay? Ha. Another day another Doug.

Worst story of the week

In actually horrifying news, an arsonist attacked the Kyoto Animation studio in Japan, resulting in a catastrophic number of deaths in the process at the company responsible for some of the best anime in recent memory.

WTF story of the week

Meme2

Hollywood was so preoccupied with whether or not they could make a Cats movie that would be the stuff of nightmares, that they didn’t think if they should have created that Eldritch horror. In more WTFery, Hasbro is looking to crowdfund its biggest Transformer toy of all time, a proper Unicron that’ll be almost as big yer mum. All that plastic commands a massive price tag though, with the toy company asking several thousand Transformers fans to pony up over $575 for this behemoth.

Totally worth it.
