Site Note: The Annoyance of Reality

Time Killers, you know how much I hate talking about real life.  It’s tremendously irritating and defeats the spirit of this site.  However, I do want to take a second and apologize that posts are a bit thin of late.  This is partly because we are currently in the movie dead zone that will hopefully end in a few weeks when The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials comes out.  No new movies worth seeing makes it difficult to parcel out reviews.  Primarily, though, my life has gotten busy on a Monty Python level of silly.  I just wanted to tell you that I will always make an effort to get a little piece of geek up every day, but there will be some days when I’m simply going to faceplant on my front porch and that’s not going to happen.  Remember to also check the Killing Time Facebook Page at http://facebook.com/killingtime2014.  Even on days when I can’t get something up here, I’ll pass along cool things to the Facebook page and that’s been the case for awhile.  So if you’re on FB, and you’re lying if you’re telling me you’re not, find the page and “Like” us to get updates there.

Trailer Time: Gotham Season 2 “The Villains Want Mass Panic”

I recently binge-watched my way through Gotham Season One.  There’s a lot about it I loved, but it was frustratingly uneven.  Robin Lord Taylor’s Penguin may be the best live-action adaptation of the character and Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue are great as Gordon and Bullock.  However, I thought Jada Pinkett-Smith’s character was irritating and there were a lot of episodes that skated along the average mark.

The second season has promised the villains will be unleashed, and if we get more Jerome/Joker then that’s fantastic.  The best moment of the entire season was his revelation in the interview room.   Also joining the GCPD will be Michael Chiklis as Capt. Nathaniel Barnes. Gotham is back September 21, 2015 at 8 p.m. on FOX.

Timeline of the New Star Wars Extended Universe (What is Canon and When Did it Happen?)

Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, Frank Oz, Star Wars Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back

Outer Places has put together a truly fantastic timeline showing an integrated layout of when all of the movies, TV series, comic series and novels take place in relationship to one another.  In the previous extended universe, which had hundreds of books and comics, nothing was quite certain as to whether it was really canon or not.  In the new extended universe, everything is.  If it happens in a comic book, it’s just as relevant as if it happens in a film.

And, just in case, you think big things aren’t happening in the fantastic comics that Marvel is putting out: Han Solo has a wife at the time of Episode IV and we see the moment Vader releases that the pilot the blew up the Death Star is named “Skywalker”; that Padme’s child (later children) survived.  In two week, Aftermath, the first novel that will begin to connect Return of the Jedi with Episode VII will release.  Exciting times for Star Wars fans!

Trailer Time: The Martian Trailer #2 (2015) *Will Ridley Mess Up 2014’s Best Book?*

Andy Weir’s science fiction masterpiece, The Martian, was my favorite book of 2014.  I love Matt Damon, I love Jessica Chastain, I love pretty much all the cast of the film and I know Andy Weir was directly involved in the adaptation, but I’m nervous.  It’s not the trailers, which have looked spectacular.  It’s Ridley Scott.  I can’t remember the last film Ridley Scott directed that I liked, which certainly wasn’t always the case.  I so hope this is a return to form for him, because this could be one of the best films of the year if it lives up to its source material.  The Martian lands in theaters on October 2, 2015, kicking off the Fall Movie Season.
