Ryan Reynolds Comments on that Teen Titans Go! to the Movies Joke

The Deadpool joke in the latest Teen Titans Go! to the Movies is probably one of the better jokes we’ve seen in the entire trailer so far aside from the idea of an Alfred movie. It turns out there was another fan of the joke and it was Deadpool star himself Ryan Reynolds who took to the comment section of the video on youtube to despair on how anyone could get the two characters mixed up.

It’s not surprising that Reynolds decided to chime in since the humor of Teen Titans Go! to the Movies is like the G rated version of the self aware humor that he is portraying in Deadpool.

Summary: A villain’s maniacal plan for world domination sidetracks five teenage superheroes who dream of Hollywood stardom.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, stars Scott Menville, Tara Strong, Khary Payton, Greg Cipes, Hynden Watch, Kristen Bell, and Will Arnett. It will be released on July 27th.

Microsoft needs to prove it’s not another IBM

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

Microsoft has been known as the Windows company for years, but that’s changing. As the company embraces a world beyond Windows, Microsoft is increasingly focusing its efforts on businesses rather than consumers. The software maker has been reshaping itself recently, and embracing rival technologies in the process. Slowly but surely, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has made cloud, AI, Mixed Reality, and quantum computing his priorities for Microsoft’s future, moving the company away from the concept of Windows being at the center of everything it does.

It’s not clear what will replace Windows as Microsoft’s main priority, but this week’s Build developer conference will give us a clearer sense of what really matters to the company. Nadella…

The Morning Watch: Donald Glover Edition – Lando Hits Up ‘SNL’, Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ & More

Saturday Night Live Lando Calrissian Sketch- Kenan Thompson and Donald Glover

The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.

In this edition, we’ve got an assembly of Donald Glover videos for you to check out. First up, Saturday Night Live featured a Star Wars sketch with Lando Calrissian holding a sparsely attended summit. Plus, Donald Glover’s hip-hop alter ego Childish Gambino debuted a powerful new music video, and throwback to one of the comedians stand-up performances.

First up, if you didn’t catch my Saturday Night Live review over the weekend, you may have missed this amusing sketch featuring Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. In the sketch, he’s hosting a summit for all of the black people in the Star Wars universe, but it turns out there are far less than anticipated. Special shout to Kenan Thompson for a great Saw Gererra.

Next up, after Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live, his hip-hop moniker Childish Gambino dropped a new music video for a track called “This Is America.” This is one hell of a music video with quite the powerful message. If you’re looking for more insight into what Glover is doing with this music video, Dear White People creator Justin Simien provided a thoughtful dissection in a fascinating thread on Twitter.

Finally, this clip is from back in 2010, but there’s probably some of you who had no idea that Donald Glover was also a stand-up comedian, so check out this bit from his Comedy Central Presents episode.

More media paywalls rise–in price, too

Bloomberg’s new paywall isn’t terribly remarkable, but the price–$35 a month–suggests a new type of walled garden. Danny Chrichton favors the paywall model, but…

Incentive alignment is one thing, and my wallet is another. All of these subscriptions are starting to add up. These days, my media subscriptions are hovering around $80 a month, and I don’t even have TV. Storage costs for Google, Apple, and Dropbox are another $13 a month. Cable and cell service are another $200 a month combined. Software subscriptions are probably about $20 a month (although so many are annualized its hard to keep track of them). Amazon Prime and a few others total in around $25 a month.

Worse, subscriptions aren’t getting any cheaper. Amazon Prime just increased its price to $120 a year, Netflix increased its popular middle-tier plan to $11 a month late last year, and YouTube increased its TV pricing to $40 a month last month. Add in new paywalls, and the burden of subscriptions is rising far faster than consumer incomes.

I’m frustrated with this hell. I’m frustrated that the web’s promise of instant and free access to the world’s information appears to be dying.

The return of media to “channels” is inevitable because the internet is infested with normalcy and the forces involved are too great to stop, but so is the return to bundling. It’ll ride in on the horse of “all your paywalls, one low monthly fee.”

Season 3 Will Bring a New Set of Loot Boxes to Destiny 2

As part of their major Season 3 update for Destiny 2, Bungie will make it slightly easier to pick up dances, ghosts, and ships from the new Prismatic Matrix loot box system.

In their latest This Week At Bungie Update, the developer gave us the rundown on the new loot box system, which will feature 10 items every week, and will not drop duplicate items. So if you pick up ten Matrices in a week, you’ll receive every reward for that week. Items dropped from Bright Engrams (which players earn from leveling up) or bought with Bright Dust (the currency gained from dismantling vanity items) also count against the duplicate counter, which means the new Matrices will be the last rewards you’ll want to earn during a week to guarantee yourself the highest chance of earning a new item.

In order to receive a reward from the Matrix, players will need a Prismatic Facet, which they will earn once per week after their first level-up. They can then buy additional Facets for 200 silver (the real-money equivalent). “We want to continue experimenting and evolving Eververse to improve player experience, and give more paths to earn Eververse rewards,” Bungie said in the blog post.

This is part of a longer effort from Bungie to reduce to overall randomness in rewards players earn in Destiny 2. In January, it made vanity rewards a part of regular player activities, making the path to picking up vanity items feel more like something you earn rather than simply gained at random.

In other Destiny 2 news, the game’s second expansion Warmind will bring a higher, harder-to-reach power cap. Meanwhile, the unnamed Fall expansion will bring with it a new game mode Activision claims is new to first-person shooters.
