Black Panther: Wakanda Forever review/updates (11-11-22)


This is one of those GIGANTIC update posts that pop up every now and then where I actually have a lot to write and will proceed to write a lot. Usually I don’t have a lot to write but today I do so please stand back, get chilled, and prepare for a lot of text to ensue.

First of all…

I’ve decided to update where you can find the various Barbatachtian films. Me and some amigos were trying to track down a copy of Bad Ben: Pandemic the other night, and couldn’t find it anywhere. While my brain always recommends people buy the films from the store (because money), the truth is that sometimes it isn’t the easiest thing. Like if you have a Firestick or are using a video game console, you can’t be doing with that. The same applies for New Village Video, Projektor, Indie Nation Network etc – eventually they’ll be available freely on any app you use, but on a TV? You gotta get creative, and speaking as someone creative half the time I just buy films on Apple TV because I can’t be bothered to put the DVD in the PS5.

So that said, the films are now all on Youtube.

Now onto Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

It’s really, really, really good.

And lastly…

Barbatachtian got a pretty cool review. Which is awesome.

The review was by Holly Soriano, one of the architects behind the upcoming My Apocalyptic Thanksgiving ( which is due out on an incredible amount of VOD formats later on this month. I really dug the trailer, so I’ll be checking it out for sure (and reviewing it),



Captain Marvel (31-7-22)

It’s very early here.

Starting the day with coffee and a rewatch of Captain Marvel.

Ya know, Marvel really is the master of creating films which are pretty good on first watch, but work even better when viewed later on in a larger context.

I’d hope my Barbatachtian films would do the same, but they are riddled with continuity errors…

In a Barbatachtian: 1985 update, I’m 30 pages into the first draft.

It’s definitely fuelled by my Grindhouse leanings, and is a bit of a departure from the other ones, as I’m… well, writing a script this time instead of a very loose outline. It also will cost a fair bit, unless I creatively shoot certain sequences.

Well, more updates to come tomorrow.
