This past weekend was Comic-Con @ Home, and I guess it went fine. Obviously it wasn’t full of the normally epic reveals and trailers we get when the world isn’t on fire, but there was plenty of good stuff revealed. And since I was lazy and didn’t post it already, I’m just going to lump a bunch of cool trailers together!
First up is Bill & Ted: Face the Music. I’ve been wary about this film…but this trailer is so much fun it won me over!
That was some solid Bill & Ted energy! The movie is coming Video-on-Demand on Sept. 4, so that’s pretty cool. Most movies are being pushed back to a theatrical release next year, but it’ll be nice to have some movies at all this year.
Next up is Truth Seekers, a ghost-hunting parody show starring Nick Frost that’s coming to Amazon.
Seems pretty fun. This was heralded as the return of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg working together, but Pegg is barely in the trailer. Still, I’ll check this out for Frost and the concept alone.
Lastly is a trailer for the third season of Infinity Train. Don’t watch this if you wan’t already seen seasons 1 and 2! Infinity Train is a special little show, and it’s coming to HBO Max, where hopefully more people can see it!
Looks damn cool! Season 3 comes out on Aug. 13.
There’s a Star Trek cartoon coming up in a couple of weeks and it looks hilarious! I’ve never been a Star Trek fan, but I am a big TV fan, so I’m caught up on all current Star Trek stuff. Discovery is fine, but I wasn’t all that impressed with Picard.
Star Trek: Lower Decks, on the other hand, looks frggin’ funny!
Like, this is right up my alley-style humor. It’s dry, it’s real-world, it’s focused on the characters and their circumstances. This looks great! I am going to have to sign back up for CBS All Access to watch!
Star Trek: Lower Decks premiers on Aug. 6.
Yesterday, as if gifting me direct content for this blog on a lazy Thursday, both The Umbrella Academy and The Boys came out with trailers for their upcoming second seasons. I enjoy both shows! And both are based on comic books! So it all fits! I’m a lucky guy.
The Umbrella Academy comes back first on July 31 on Netflix.
The Boys returns to Amazon Prime on Sept. 4.
What’s not to love? They both had great first seasons and can only get better from here!
Harley Quinn is the best DC animated series since Justice League Unlimited. That’s not hyperbole. I know people enjoy the deep bench of Young Justice, and I’m sure those non-BTAS cartoons have their fans, but none of them are the complete masterpiece that is Harley Quinn.
TV Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
I have loved this show from the first minutes of the first episode. Harley Quinn burst to life with sharp humor, hilarious violence and a chef’s kiss perfect use of raunch. I loved Season 1, and Season 2 is just as good, if not better. Even though the two seasons were written and produced back-to-back, Season 2 shows a clear confidence that raises this cartoon to new heights. This is a show unafraid to mess with the status quo, while also displaying a deep and loving adoration for all of DC canon.
It’s also a show that knows exactly the story it wants to tell and uses its time, its pacing and its writing to tell that story masterfully. Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the second season of Harley Quinn! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire show.Read the rest of this entry
Look, I’m off from work today, slept in a little bit and am generally feeling kind of lazy. It’s super hot and humid here in the northeast and sometimes a fella’s just got to make a lazy blog post. So here’s a bunch of Netflix trailers I’ve been sitting on for a lazy day!
First up is a brand new film that I just heard about, which prompted this lazy post. It’s Over the Moon! An animated film set to release in the fall.
Next up is Old Guard starring Charlize Theron as an ancient comic book badass, along with her whole crew. It comes out on July 10. If Netflix is snatching up any comic book it can find in these pandemic times, I’ve got something they might be interested in!
Lastly is Warrior Nun, which is actually a series, not a movie. It’s based on a manga, so similar to a comic! This comes out on July 2, so not very far off at all.
All of these look pretty good. Especially what with this being the Year Without Movies!
