    Hooptober 5.0: watch a movie that BUTCHERS your childhood*

    Woovember 2018: Warm-up film

    Marv Wolfman and George Perez’s NEW TEEN TITANS was a huge favorite growing up so I’m told I should hate the show and movie for existing but since I don’t ask children cartoon shows to cater to me, a 30+ year old straight white guy who I’m pretty sure is covered when it comes to art made for him, I am fine with it.  I mean if…

    With that said this one isn't all that bad shockingly. As a super-depressing remake of the 1931 James Whale movie, it's pretty successful. Unfortunately they were supposed to adapt the Marvel comic book, whoops.

    Anyhow as far as Marvel movies go, it's much better than THOR and THOR: THE DARK WORLD and no more depressing than LOGAN.
