Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/24/22

Another week, another couple of new comics, and more of me ignoring all the Big Events going on right now. I should really get over that bias and try to enjoy some Big Events, eh? How’s Judgement Day going? Anyway, we’ve got new Legion of X and the start of X-Terminators!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #96 for a truly perfect finale to the first major storyline. Let us hope we get many major storylines going forward!

No, I really do want more good Nightwing comics!

Meanwhile, COVID is a beast to fully recover from, but I’m trying. I’m taking a lot of naps and wasting a lot of time playing more Total War: Warhammer 3. I haven’t even started Andor yet. What’s wrong with me? Oh yeah, COVID recovery.

Comic Reviews: Legion of X #5, Nightwing #96 and X-Terminators #1.

New Spooky Movie in Knock at the Cabin

Director M. Night Shyamalan is back with a new spooky movie: Knock at the Cabin. There’s a new trailer and it is sufficiently spooky, with Dave Bautista in the lead role.

Everything looks good to me! What could the mystery be? What could the twist be? I am very tempted to find out. But that means I’ll have to wait until February to find out! That’s when Knock at the Cabin comes to theaters. Not a great sign, but it’s always fun to have something to watch in February.

Wait…was that…Rupert Grint?

Disney’s Strange World Gets a Plot

The next Disney animated film, Strange World, ha snow got a bigger trailer and has revealed the actual plot of the film. It all looks good to me. Disney animated films have been on fire for years. Encanto was awesome. So my hopes are high for Strange World, even if it isn’t a musical.

Once again, Disney is going for a story about generational trauma, which is fine by me. If they’ve got a good story then go for it. Mostly the movie looks like they just let animators go full weird, as weird as they wanted. By all means, that should be fun.

Strange World comes to theaters on Nov. 23.

6 Things I Want to See in Andor

The first three episodes of Andor arrived on Disney+ today and I can’t wait to watch! The trailers have looked very promising and I have high hopes, more so than most other Star Wars TV shows. I always found it strange that Cassian Andor should get his own TV show, but here we are and we can only hope for the best.

Rebellions are built on hope

I’m loving The Mandalorian as much as everybody else, and I can’t wait to watch Ahsoka. But The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were both pretty mediocre. Will Andor be better? I love the tone we got in the trailers, of an actual hardcore, gritty war drama. Will the show live up to that tone? I surely hope so.

Join me after the jump for what I hope to get in the Andor TV show! And feel free to share your hopes, dreams and reviews of the first three episodes in the comments!

Pokemon or Tem Tem?

I’m once again at a video game crossroads. I’ve been playing the heck out of Total War: Warhammer 3, and I might just keep playing that. The next new video game I want to get doesn’t come out until the end of October, and I probably need a Playstation 5 to play it (which I might not get). Then God of War: Ragnarok in early November, which can be played on a PS4, but should it?

Finally, Pokemon Violet and Scarlet come out in mid-November. I definitely have the Nintendo Switch to play it. But what do I play until then?

I’ve really been eyeing this game Tem Tem on Steam. It’s a pretty solid Pokemon knock-off that seems pretty fun. Might that last me until mid-November? I haven’t done much research at all into that game, unlike the research I do playing new Pokemon games. So for the first time ever, I could go into a monster catching game with no knowledge of what monsters I’ll encounter or their final evolutions.

It’s very tempting…I just gotta be willing to spend that money…

Oh yeah, and all the new stuff introduced in that new Pokemon trailer looks neat. It’s more of the basic Pokemon stuff, but that’s exactly what I want in the new open world playstyle. Give me the open world, but the normal Pokemon track, and hopefully that should be really fun.
