We’ve Had a Live Action Starfire This Whole Time!

The third season of the TV show Titans is due out…I think any year now…on HBO Max! We’ve already seen the live action Red Hood costume, and now they’ve revealed the new, more comics-accurate Starfire costume!

Here’s actor Anna Diop in the flashy purple Starfire costume!

Hopefully they don’t give her 1994 Fantastic Four fire effects

I think it looks neat! It also looks a little awkward, but then a proper comic book Starfire costume was probably always going to look awkward. At least she’s not being made to wear a purple metal bikini on national TV…or HBO Max.

I still need to watch the second season of Titans.

Have You Seen Letterkenny?

So I got introduced to this show a couple months ago and I immediately binged all 8 seasons because it’s just that good. Letterkenny is about some good old boys in rural Canada, and I believe it’s available to watch on Crave and/or Hulu. Season 9 is coming out in a month!

Consider this a strong recommendation from me: go watch Letterkenny. Half an hour episodes of delightful comedy and wordplay. That’s good watching.

Season 9 debuts on Christmas Day.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/21/20

Happy Thanksgiving, American friends! The holiday isn’t until Thursday, but this feels like a good time to say something nice about Thanksgiving. Be safe. Wear your mask. Social distance. Do all that good stuff.

Against my better judgement, Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Force #14, due entirely to lack of competition. None of the other comics I read this week were as fun.

The height of X of Swords

Meanwhile, I skipped the newest issue of Spider-Woman. Not much happened. And I’m still enjoying Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Oh, I know! I got around to watching a Hulu show called Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and it’s very fun! Highly recommended.

Comic Reviews: Batman #103, Juggernaut #3, X-Force #14, Hellions #6 and Cable #6.

How About Another Look at Cyberpunk 2077?

We’re still three weeks away from the (latest) release date for Cyberpunk 2077 and I am still very excited about this game. The delays have not dampened the hype for what could be the game of the year…not that it’s had much stiff competition. Still, to ease the wait, CD Projekt Red put out another trailer!

And the game still looks great! It still looks incredibly immersive! A couple different gaming websites have put out articles this week about getting some solid playtime in demo copies, and the game sounds like everything I hope it’s going to be.

So now it’s just a matter of sitting backing and waiting for Dec. 10. Thankfully, I’m on vacation that week, so I imagine I will lose several days to the game!

Some People May Be Looking Forward to the Snyder Cut

I am not one of those people. I liked Justice League well enough when I saw it in theaters, but I haven’t seen it since. And I like a lot of director Zack Snyder’s earlier work, like 300 and Watchmen. Heck, I also really like Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah!

But man, this new-ish trailer for the #SnyderCut is atrocious.

First of all, it’s almost exactly like the original trailer that was put up a couple weeks ago. That got taken down for a copyright strike on the song…so they just re-upload the trailer again with the same song and a couple of seconds of new footage? Second of all, it’s in black and white?! The actual #SnyderCut will not be in black and white. Which means this is an entirely “artistic” choice for this trailer. Jeez louise.

Third of all, did you hear that Wonder Woman 1984 is going to debut both in theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day? Bold strategy! Looks like I’ll get to see it after all!
