Season finished. I shouldn't have binged it. Just makes the wait for a third season that much longer. Should have just picked a day and watched one a week, although they are extremely good at ending each episode in such a way that you want to go ahead and watch the next one.
I need a Punisher spin-off ASAP. Loved Elektra a ton too; SO MUCH better than that terrible Jennifer Garner version (my only exposure to the character prior to this).
My only real previous exposure to Elektra is that same version, and while I didn't mind her in the Daredevil movie(not that the movie was great anyway), but subsequent Elektra movie was just terrible. Utterly and completely terrible...worst super hero movie ever made.
And yes, there needs to be a Punisher series. It's my favorite character.
Went to see Suicide Squad last night. Probably rank it at the bottom of the comic book movies for the year so far, IMO, but the critics are full of shit. No way that's a 3 or 4 out of 10. I'd go 6, maybe 7.
Edit: Excuse me, the Rotten Tomatoes critic score is now at 26%...that score is complete, unadulterated horseshit.
My interest in that film is lukewarm at best. I want to like it but I just feel like I'm going to be very disappointed. Plus whatever crap they've done to the Joker is enough to make me not see it in the theater. Character looks like a bad Hot Topic cosplay.
Truthfully I haven't really been too excited for any the latest batches of DC films.
The film exists in the same world as his film Unbreakable as seen by Bruce Willis' cameo. It woks too since the 24th personality is a transformation into "the beast" which is beyond what typical humans are capable of. Since people having abilities has already been established in that film it was a nice unexpected callback.
Also have to say James McAvoy was fantastic in it.
For anybody who hasn't seen the trailer
Also glad to hear that it already seems to be outperforming expectations with an over 40 million dollar opening weekend.
Went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; thought it was very good. I think the first is better overall but I can't see anybody who was a fan of the first one not enjoying this one. Good blend of humor and action as one would come to expect.
Can't speak about the later seasons yet, but so far Supernatural has gotten better each season IMO. Not far into season four, but the humor is top notch and each episode is maintaining a good balance of pushing the larger narrative while still being largely stand alonish monster hunting. Very much like iZombie in that regard.
So about 3/4ths of the shows I DVR are ending in the next two or three weeks Thinking I may start working Prison Break on Netflix into my rotation since I won't be replacing those shows with as many that are restarting over the summer. Also interested in watching The Son from my on demand menu.
Went and saw Alien: Covenant, really wasn't a fan of the film at all. Movie badly struggled with what it wanted to be (closer to Prometheus or closer to Alien) and in turn just ended up being a disjointed mess. Character development was atrocious to say the least. Even by movie standards the decisions made by the characters were next level stupid. The icing on the cake though was the lack of practical effects for the Aliens (all CGI) making them look way worse than practical effects that were nearly 40 years old.
