I remember as a kid wishing that somehow comic books could come to life and I could see them in TV and movies. Not the crappy stuff that was put out from time to time. But something well made that treated the source material as important. Even after my first viewing of Iron Man in 2008, I didn’t understand the scope of what Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios were doing. Ten years later, we’re a little more than a week away from the culmination of a decade of tethered movies. Avengers: Infinite Wars is billed as the first half of the finale to the first 3 phases of Marvel’s self-produced movies. This is a nice little vignette from Marvel.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom already had my money. If you’ve got dinosaurs in your movie, you’ve got my $10. But this final trailer really amps up the story and effects to make it a ‘must see’ summer blockbuster. It drops in theaters June 22nd.
After a brutal virus wipes out most of the population, two young siblings embark on a perilous search for safety. The Rain, a Netflix original series. Coming soon.
I am so prepped for tonight’s zombie fest. For one, it’ll be good to finally bring an end to the Negan War on The Walking Dead. Dragging this on for two seasons was a bad idea. Hopefully, they’ll get a nice two-year jump to do a mini-reboot for the next season. And it looks like Fear The Walking Dead will be doing that to bring their timeline parallel to the main show. Last season was great and left us in a bit of a cliffhanger. The addition of Morgan should make season 4 the best season yet.
I think one of the best things about sci-fi shows are reboots that get it right. Battlestar Galactica and 12 Monkeys are two perfect example. They took the essential pieces that made the originals good and built something new and exciting. I think I’d add Netflix’s Lost In Space to that list. If you’ve seen the cheesy 1965 tv show or the 1998 movie, you get the idea of the show. The 2018 version takes the premise of a family getting lost on their way to a new world, and expands on the plot. Season 1 is nice and compact, focusing less on planet hopping and dealing with the aftermath of the family’s mishap. Great casting and great pacing make the 10 episode binge fly by. Bravo, Netflix!
I still don’t fully understand what happened during the first season of Westworld. I enjoyed it immensely, but I didn’t follow it too well. I don’t care, this is going to be an awesome season!!
Two words.. Danny Trejo.
