I like the John Wick movies. Who doesn’t? But I really think they’ve lost the forest for the trees. What’s the story anymore? Does anybody remember off the top of their heads? The first movie worked so perfectly, where a retired hitman came back to go on a murderous rampage after idiots killed his dog. It was great! But where are we now? Who was Halle Berry’s character?
Anyway, they’re right back at it with John Wick 4!
I mean, I’ll definitely go see this movie. They’ve all been pretty good. But the lore is really weighing down John Wick’s character, in my opinion. His family sits at the table? Are we about to meet John Wick’s parents and learn that they’re the ones in charge of the whole management level of assassins? It’s like finding out Jack Sparrow’s dad was in charge of all pirate lore.
Ah well, make of it all what you will. John Wick 4 comes out on March 24.
Knives Out was amazing. I saw it in theaters with high hopes based on the trailers, and even those hopes were blown out of the water by how good it was! So you’re gosh darn right I’m quite pleased that Rian Johnson was given a ton of money by Netflix to make more Benoit Blanc mysteries. Glass Onion looks darn good!
Looks like a fun murder mystery, with a great cast and a really neat lead detective! I’m totally in.
So Glass Onion is coming to Netflix on Dec. 23, which is fine. I can watch it with my family over Christmas, perhaps. But it’s also going to get a limited theatrical release for, like, one week starting on Nov. 23. If that movie is playing anywhere near me, you best believe I’m going to see it in theaters! I can’t wait!
This week sees the highly anticipated premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever! I’ll be heading to the theater to try to get into the first local showing tomorrow afternoon, and can’t wait to see the big show. And since this blog is all about comic books and superhero movies, I wanted to do something to mark the occasion — and I settled on this really dumb idea.
So hear me out. Black Panther is obviously a cool and popular superhero, but I’ve already done some lists on big cat superheroes. So I thought about how many superheroes exist who are named after colored animals. Red Bee, Crimson Cougar, Yellowjacket, Red Robin; the list goes on and on and there were some good ones. But then I discovered that there are enough black-colored animal comic book characters to make their own list! That’s neat!
So join me after the jump for a whole list of superheroes and villains who are named after the color black and after an animal! Black Panther would obviously top this list, so we’ll leave him out because we already know all about him.Read the rest of this entry
So it’s a random Monday. I’m out of town, but didn’t want to not post anything. So how about sharing this random movie trailer for last week? It’s Troll, coming to Netflix. Looks like a pretty solid monster movie. I wonder if it’s going to be anything like Trollhunter from 2010. That was a fun one!
Yeah, Troll looks like fun. CGI looks good, the B-movie aspects look perfect. Should be a fun watch. Especially since it’s just going to Netflix, and that’ll be an easy watch.
Troll comes out on Dec. 1.
If you’re reading this, I’m already on vacation! I’ve got a week off from work and I plan on kicking back and just relaxing. Is it a coincidence that I timed my vacation for the release of both God of War: Ragnarok and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever? Nope! Not a coincidence at all!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #129 for a high energy, action-packed issue. It’s a bit weaker than previous issues of this run, but it’s still a fun read. Needs more Robin, though.
Meanwhile, like I said, I’m on vacation. I haven’t decided whether or not I’ll buy Ragnarok yet, since I’ve only got a Playstation 4 to play it on. And because Pokemon Scarlet and Violet come out the week after. I don’t need to be spending $100+ on video games in a single month, you hear me? So we’ll see what my week of relaxation will feature.
