First Last of Us Trailer Picked a Great Song

The Last of Us is going to be a TV show on HBO, and now we’ve got the first ever trailer! It looks great and they picked a great song to go along with it. This trailer does a great job of setting the mood and setting up all we know about the Last of Us world.

I have high hopes for this show. I loved both games, including The Last of Us 2, and I’m sure HBO can do a good job. There have been a lot of good adaptations of books and comics and games that have crashed and burned lately. So I’m going to remain hopeful and positive, especially after this first look.

And you can always count on Alone and Forsaken by Hank Williams to be a kickass doomsday song.

The Last of Us comes to HBO next year.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/24/22

Another week, another couple of new comics, and more of me ignoring all the Big Events going on right now. I should really get over that bias and try to enjoy some Big Events, eh? How’s Judgement Day going? Anyway, we’ve got new Legion of X and the start of X-Terminators!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Nightwing #96 for a truly perfect finale to the first major storyline. Let us hope we get many major storylines going forward!

No, I really do want more good Nightwing comics!

Meanwhile, COVID is a beast to fully recover from, but I’m trying. I’m taking a lot of naps and wasting a lot of time playing more Total War: Warhammer 3. I haven’t even started Andor yet. What’s wrong with me? Oh yeah, COVID recovery.

Comic Reviews: Legion of X #5, Nightwing #96 and X-Terminators #1.

New Spooky Movie in Knock at the Cabin

Director M. Night Shyamalan is back with a new spooky movie: Knock at the Cabin. There’s a new trailer and it is sufficiently spooky, with Dave Bautista in the lead role.

Everything looks good to me! What could the mystery be? What could the twist be? I am very tempted to find out. But that means I’ll have to wait until February to find out! That’s when Knock at the Cabin comes to theaters. Not a great sign, but it’s always fun to have something to watch in February.

Wait…was that…Rupert Grint?

Disney’s Strange World Gets a Plot

The next Disney animated film, Strange World, ha snow got a bigger trailer and has revealed the actual plot of the film. It all looks good to me. Disney animated films have been on fire for years. Encanto was awesome. So my hopes are high for Strange World, even if it isn’t a musical.

Once again, Disney is going for a story about generational trauma, which is fine by me. If they’ve got a good story then go for it. Mostly the movie looks like they just let animators go full weird, as weird as they wanted. By all means, that should be fun.

Strange World comes to theaters on Nov. 23.

6 Things I Want to See in Andor

The first three episodes of Andor arrived on Disney+ today and I can’t wait to watch! The trailers have looked very promising and I have high hopes, more so than most other Star Wars TV shows. I always found it strange that Cassian Andor should get his own TV show, but here we are and we can only hope for the best.

Rebellions are built on hope

I’m loving The Mandalorian as much as everybody else, and I can’t wait to watch Ahsoka. But The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi were both pretty mediocre. Will Andor be better? I love the tone we got in the trailers, of an actual hardcore, gritty war drama. Will the show live up to that tone? I surely hope so.

Join me after the jump for what I hope to get in the Andor TV show! And feel free to share your hopes, dreams and reviews of the first three episodes in the comments!
