The live action Dora the Explorer movie is surprisingly great! The trailers for Dora and the Lost City of Gold looked pretty cool, so I went to see the film this past weekend and it’s surprisingly fun and charming.
It’s got something for both kids and adults, with a sharply written script. It’s easily risen to one of my favorite movies of the year so far. And I’ve never even watched the original cartoon! I already know all my vocabulary.
It’s a pretty slow Monday in stuff I have ready to post on the internet, so I think I’m going to take this moment to remind you all that season 3 of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is out on Netflix!
It’s a great season and a great show!
Also out is the third season of GLOW, which is another amazing show! Seriously, two of my favorite shows these days came out with their third seasons within a week of each other! I’m thrilled. And the next season of BoJack Horseman should be available soon.
Honestly, TV is great these days! I’m a very happy geek.
Interesting week of comics this week! Both Agents of Atlas and Future Foundation get their first issues this week, so Marvel is kicking off two new team books. But we’ve also got ongoing comics from Batman, Green Lantern and more! House of X shakes things up yet again and nothing will ever be the same!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Lois Lane #2. House of X is good, don’t get me wrong, but Lois Lane is damn good.
Meanwhile, I tried out the first issue of Absolute Carnage, despite not reading any of Donny Cates’ previous Venom and/or Carnage stories. The first issue is really great. It establishes the story well and delivers some quality Spider-Man and Venom entertainment, keeping the story grounded and realistic. Cates writes a really good Spider-Man!
I’ll probably keep reading this main series, but I’m probably only going to review the Scream mini-series, because I remain wholly dedicated to Scream for some reason. She’s my favorite symbiote and I’m happy to see her in action again.
Comic Reviews: Agents of Atlas #1, Batman #76, Black Cat #3, Future Foundation #1, Green Lantern #10, House of X #2 and Lois Lane #2.
Avengers: Endgame was great and hugely entertaining, and I’m all set to grab the DVD next week. But first, Honest Trailers tackles the hit and mostly complains about how it handles time travel. Look, you just gotta not worry too much.
Just go with the flow, baby, and enjoy some Avengers: Endgame! I saw it three times in theaters, and while I don’t think it’s as good as Infinity War, it’s still good. Avengers: Endgame is currently sitting at my favorite movie of the year so far.
Have you ever seen the movie Four Lions? It’s this hilarious, rough satire about four inept terrorists trying to strike in London. It’s by a game named Chris Morris, and it came out a bunch of years ago. I loved it. Well he’s got a new movie coming out called The Day Shall Come and it looks amazing!
I’m not just a superhero movie guy! I love any and all good movies. Here’s hoping I can even find The Day Shall Come in my local movie theater. The film comes to the UK in October.
