Hurm...
Aside from nitpicks it looks kinda great. Nitpicks include 5 vs. 4 fingers and the lack of a gravely (pun intended) voice once transformed.  The big question is, will we hear "IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!!!"?

+Ben Grimm There's no way it's doing $50M without 3D or IMAX. It'll probably be lucky to crack $45M, especially with the review embargo. There hasn't been one movie with an embargo this close to release that wasn't utterly terrible.

Imperius Desk!
Yours Truly's desk with the postcard +Jonathan Morris (http://calamityjonsave.us/) sent me for donating to his birthday cause next to my computer whose desktop background currently is a commission piece I purchased from him.  Get the feeling I like his artwork yet?

Consider Supporting a Good Cause
 
In advance of my birthday next week, I’m trying to raise at least $500 to help bring water to people who desperately need it. It would be wonderful if you could help, or even just spread the word - thanks!

Hey, Everybody!
Stay with me for a sec.  Watch this-here latest Fantastic Four trailer and give me your honest impressions.  I gotta say that the more time goes by the more I actually sorta like what I'm seeing.  If they just gave Yours Truly pants, I might actually be rooting for this flick a little bit.  The initial emphasis on exploration and pushing humanity forward transitioning into trailers with more fun and energetic elements is actually kinda working for me...  JUST GIVE ME SOME DAD-BLAMED PANTS!!!

Happy Belated Fourth of July!
When you have half an hour to kill being reminded how good the film Independence Day was and how much better it might be than you remember, give this video a watch.  I really enjoy Bob "MovieBob" Chipman's work and this was a legitimately interesting reflection on a movie that was a pretty big deal to me back in the day.

C'Mon, Folks!
Give to charity, fulfill a birthday request, and get some great art all in one fell swoop!
 
I'd love to get this to its goal today. Four of the Aquaman Family postcards remain (Namor and BatB Aquaman have been sent out), so there's still time to get in on it!

Get 'Em While They Last!
It's for charity!!!
 
Hey there! The next six folks to donate at least $20 to the charity:water campaign I’m running in advance of my birthday gets one of these KINGS OF THE SEA postcards! 

They’re 4″x6″ on britsol board, original illustration in marker and pen, and they’re ready to send - they got a stamp on ‘em and everything! They’ll probably get a little wrecked in the mail, but that’ll just give ‘em STYLE.

All you need to do is donate at my charity:water campaign page, leave your name, and then drop me a line at calamityjon@gmail.com to let me know your mailing address. I’ll get ‘em addressed and sent off right away! 

Selections will be random and first-come first-served. You can ask for one specifically and I’ll try to accommodate, but once it’s gone, it’s gone, sorry! (If you want a specific one, please ask for: Hook Hand Aquaman, Brave and the Bold Aquaman, Classic Aquaman, Sword of Atlantis Aquaman, Aqualad or Namor)

All six are currently available! Get in on it!

Huh?
What right does this flick have to suddenly look like it gets Yours Truly?  If this commercial is any indication, maybe this movie will get me at least a little bit right.
