Of Stan Lee and Pikachu
I don’t like posting so late in the day, but I’m trying to give Weebly a chance by letting the website load. Now, granted, I’m downloading some pretty hefty games for my review gigs, but its never been this bad before.
Either way, its time for another blog and I thought I’d go into the events of the day. First, Stan Lee pass away. I’m sure you’ve already heard it a hundred times today, but it’s still depressing. I can’t say that I grew up with comics and that he changed my life. He didn’t. But he was a creator. The characters and stories that he created or was otherwise a part of bringing to life are things that I enjoyed. But more than that, I enjoyed the man himself. He loved his work. He loved what he created. And by golly, that man loved doing cameos. I can only hope that the work I create will be as loved and as wide-spread.
But in lighter news to end the blog with, if you haven’t watched the new trailer for Detective Pikachu, go watch it! I can’t say this was a movie I was planning on watching, but now... I can’t not! I have to see this thing. It honestly reminds me of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which the crime aspect of which is not the main comparison. Its the matter of fact world. Pokemon just exist and no one is questioning it. There’s no time wasted establishing the world and that Pokemon are a thing. They just are and let’s get straight into the movie.
So give it a shot. I sincerely plan on seeing it and I can’t wait to see what they’re doing with it.
