Top o’ the Lot: Marvel and Star Wars Stuff I Want to See in ‘Toy Story 4’

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

I’m so busy this week that I almost forgot we even had a Top o’ the Lot weekly article, and I’m just going to throw this together real quick to the streak going. But, actually, this is a pretty cool idea…I hope it works out. So, without further ado, we fall in the sarlacc pit, get kidnapped by Jawas, and compare armors, with Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Marvel and Star Wars Stuff I Want to See in ‘Toy Story 4’.

Top o’ the Lot: Other Disney Songs They Could Use in Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers Age of UltronThe release leak of the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer left most of the geek community gobsmacked, but I took one big thing away from the sneak peak of next year’s most anticipated movie: Ultron was singing a Disnay standard! As a big fan of both musicals, animation, and Marvel movies…wait, that’s three things…either way, I thought I’d put some thought into some other opportunities Age of Ultron has to take advantage of Disney’s diverse library of awesome music. So, without further ado, Be Our Guest, Listen to Your Heart, and Be Prepared, for Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Other Disney Songs They Could Use in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Rant: Isn’t It Time to Lay Off the Mouse?

It’s nearly impossible to enter into a conversation about Marvel Comics, Star Wars, Animation, or even sports without at least touching on the Walt Disney Company in one way or another. Despite Marvel, Star Wars, Animation, and sports not only maintaining the popularity they’ve always had but seeing tremendous success after the House of Mouse got their grubby little gloved hands elbow deep into these properties, there’s still a whole lot of hatred around the internet pushed towards Disney. And I just don’t get it. Sure there’s always a bit of trepidation whenever there’s a huge entertainment conglomerate laying down big bucks to buy an adored and, dare I say, sacred property, but how long into this new ownership of the property do we have to wait to judge an acquisition as successful? How long do we cling to that initial, knee-jerk reaction before the evidence leads us to a singular conclusion: Disney should buy all the things!
