I don’t think the Kingsmen franchise is strong enough to support a random prequel, but The King’s Man is going to be a thing. I’ll admit it’s a neat take on the name, but this first trailer doesn’t impress too much.
I liked the first one, like everybody else. The second one not so much. Thankfully, we don’t have to worry about dead characters being brought back to life unnecessarily because this film goes back to the origins of the organization. Hopefully they have a nice story to tell.
The King’s Man comes out in February.
How It Should Have Ended finally got around to doing Venom and it’s a pretty good episode!
Lots to make fun of about this movie. And lots of good alternate endings in this video. I do so enjoy it when these people stick to their gimmick. That’s a good way to start a Monday.
Welcome, to the world of comics! Buncha fun reads this week, from Batman to the new era of Go Go Power Rangers. Most monumental is the temporary return of X-Statix! Against all odds! I’m excited to see where that book goes, but for now it’s just a simple reintroduction.
Comic Book of the Week goes to the final issue of Wonder Twins for a really enjoyable, meaningful ending to this short but sweet mini-series. Thankfully, we’ll be getting more from this comic in a couple of months!
Meanwhile, the War of the Realms is over and now is the time for aftermath stories! I skipped the Omega issue out this week, because it was just short advertisements for upcoming series. I might check out the new Valkyrie. We’ll see. The new issue of the regular Thor series was a fun coda. We finally get that nice Thor/Odin moment we’ve all been waiting for, so that’s nice.
And the second issue of Event Leviathan was actually really well done. I’m legit excited for that comic now, thanks to issue #2.
Comic Reviews: Batman #74, Black Cat #2, Giant-Sized X-Statix #1, Go Go Power Rangers #21 and Wonder Twins #6.
The internet is full of wonderfully creative people. Take, for example, Octopie, who released this bitchin’ animated short showing Stranger Things as an old anime!
Looks fantastic! That’s real talent and skill!
I enjoyed the third season of Stranger Things, though I think they’ve lost the creative spark that made the first season so memorable. Now it’s more like comfort food TV. They haven’t done anything nearly as creative or as original as that thing with the Christmas lights and the letters. Now it’s just a happy good time hanging out with all of our favorite characters. Still enjoyable!
What an amazing movie! Our faith in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has once again been affirmed with another spectacular Spider-Man movie! The decision to hand over the reigns of Spidey to Marvel has worked out well for everyone involved, especially us, the viewers! Spider-Man: Far From Home is another winner!
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.
Far From Home works as a stand alone Spider-Man movie, it works as a follow-up to Avengers: Endgame and it works as a commentary on the legacy of Tony Stark! It works as a showcase for new villains, it works as a showcase for new talent; it’s an all around quality production from top to bottom.
Stop me if I’m gushing too much. Or don’t stop me, I don’t care! I’m an avowed Marvel Studios fanboy and I do not apologize for that! Join me after the jump for my full review/thoughts on Spider-Man: Far From Home! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie!
