Notes from the Manager
I do want to get back to the film series sometime soon, but I’m moving in a week, so doing hand-drawn strips is not an option at the moment, I’m afraid. Instead, we actually get a strip with Kurt and Jason talking about a current movie!
There does seem to be a very polarized reaction to Guillermo del Toro’s latest (a.k.a. Pacific Rim), with most of the people I know on Twitter loving it, but a handful of confusing (to me), strong negative reactions around the internet. DO NOT post Pacific Rim spoilers below. If you want to talk about the movie in more detail, I’ve given a little bit of my opinion about it (I wouldn’t say it was a review) and set up a “Spoiler Zone” post over at Deleted Scenes. Spoilers are okay in the Spoiler Zone comments section, though, so you have been warned.
See you… Thuriday. :P to you, Bunk.

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?
The film opens July 25, 2014.
Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
