New York City Comic Con 2019 pictures

I did this a few years where I would walk around the outside of the Jacob Javits Center(in New York City), while Comic Con was taking place.    Watching attendees in their cosplay outfits is fun.    They are kindly willing to be photographed.   Here are some of those pictures.

Gemini Man Quick Review plus ARTWORk-SPOILERS

Gemini man is a fun action thriller.  Director Ang Lee shot this film at 120 frames per second.   The screening I would come to see was in 60 frames per second in IMAX 3D, and It looks incredible.    The backgrounds look painted.    Will Smith's younger version of himself did not look out of place amongst the other actors.    The visuals were sharp and smooth at the same time.    During the action scenes, the blending of CGI and reality was seamless.    This film has some impressive action scenes.   The stand out being the motorcycle sequence

This isn't a story we haven't seen before.   In a nutshell, a soldier serves his country dutifully for years, now wants to retire, but knows too much and must be erased.   In Gemini Man, this basic premise was handled well. 

A few spoiler notes; I don't disagree with Clive Owen's reasoning for creating clones, but couldn't he of used robots instead?   Also, I liked that Will Smith's Henry(who is presented as a no-nonsense killer)was forgiving and showed mercy to Junior(young Will Smith) and his handler Del who initially sets him up.

Gemini Man(like Rambo: Last Blood)makes for an exceptional cable/streaming watch.  But for the 3D, HFR(High Frame Rate)experience, see it in theaters.

In honor of the film I drew this piece.   It is for sale in my Teepublic store which you can find here.

Joker Movie REView-SPOILERS

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE:




On this episode Jason G. and I review Todd Phillips Joker.   Based on the famous DC comics villain from Batman lore.   We both very much enjoyed this film but both felt it wasn't perfect.   Joaquin Phoenix's performance in the film is incredible and undeniable for sure.    Have you seen Joker?   Please post your thoughts, comments, feedback down below.

I was anticipating this movie.   In my excitement, I drew my version of Phoenix's character here.


We shot this right after the review.    Geez, we look tired.    Looking forward to the next movie night with Jason G.
