I have never been a Star Trek guy…until last year, when the cartoon Lower Decks debuted and I was instantly in love! This is the Star Trek for me. Funny, well-written, awesome in all the right ways and full of smart, well-used references. I would literally watch an episode and then go online to learn what all the references were, I was that in love with the show.
And it’s coming back for a second season!
I cannot wait. This show is damn good, and I hope it gets a bajillion seasons. And then I hope it gets some live action crossovers somehow with other Trek media. Paramount is putting out a ton of Star Trek content these days, and Lower Decks is the only one that’s any good. In my opinion.
Season two of Star Trek: Lower Decks arrives on Aug. 12!
I have no connection to Dune. I never read the books and, if I ever saw that original movie, I have no memory of it. I know that the words “space” and “ancient sand worms” are part of Dune, and that’s about it. So when I say this new trailer looks impenetrable, I want you to know that’s coming from someone who is not a superfan of Dune.
I’m a big science fiction fan. I’m fairly excited to go see this movie. But man, I can’t make heads or tails of this trailer. There are so many characters, planets, governments, twists, monsters, armies; it’s madness! And if I’m having this kind of trouble, what about regular people who aren’t already leaning towards seeing this film in theaters?
Dune looks to be as about as ambitious as movies can get…but I fear for what that will mean for regular moviegoers.
Dune comes to theaters on Oct. 22.
Looks like DC and Warner Bros are indeed going ahead with a Batgirl movie for HBO Max. That sounds good to me! They’re so serious about this project that they have actually cast Barbara Gordon. She will be played by Leslie Grace, who recently starred in In the Heights.
This also sounds good to me! Grace was really good in In the Heights and I’m sure she’ll be a fine Batgirl. Whether or not the project actually gets made is the other issue. DC have announced and abandoned so many movies that I’ve lost count. Heck, apparently that Nightwing movie is still happening? Who knows.
But Batgirl apparently has a screenwriter, a pair of directors and now a lead actor. So that’s all very hopeful, as far as I’m concerned!
The first season of Loki is over and nothing will ever be the same. Theoretically. I’m excited to see where we go from here and am very pleased with the show. The first three of Marvel Studios’ shows are over and I am happy to say they are all an unqualified success! Oh to live in a world where we get to have and enjoy these shows.
TV Show Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I’m not going to sugar coat things: if I were to rank the first three Marvel Studios shows, as most people online are doing, I would rank Loki last. I’ve never been as big a fan of the character as everybody else seems to be. I never cared for Loki in the comics, and I’m not smitten with him in the MCU. Simple as that. But this was still a solid show, there’s a lot of promise to be had in that big cliffhanger ending and I look forward to more Tom Hiddleston-led adventures in mischief.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts/review of the first season of Loki. Expect FULL SPOILERS!Read the rest of this entry
