The global pandemic’s stranglehold on the entertainment industry is not so terrifying because we’ve still got TV and streaming! In fact, Netflix will be releasing the third season of the awesome Aggretsuko cartoon at the end of the month, on Aug. 27! So at least we’ve got that to look forward to.
I very much enjoy this cartoon and highly recommend it. Aggretsuko takes the cheerful, kid-friendly vibe of Hello Kitty and transforms it into a workplace comedy with a touch of anarchistic glee.
It’s about a young woman named Retsuko who struggles to make it in life as a single 20-something woman with a crummy office job. Her one respite from reality is her love of hardcore death metal karaoke!
Now is the time that Netflix should be stepping up its game! Hollywood is over. There are no theaters anymore and any big blockbuster film has been delayed until October at the earliest. Netflix original movies are some of the only movies were ever getting anymore!
So here comes Project Power with Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
It looks very good, at the very least. Literally. It looks good. The special effects seem really top notch in displaying super powers in a movie. And maybe the story and characters are fun too! We only have to wait until Aug. 14 to find out!
Don’t get me wrong, there have been fancy new Transformers cartoons coming out every couple of years now. But this new one is going to be especially fancy, and produced by Rooster Teeth, a company I enjoy. The new cartoon is going by the insanely complicated name of Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy – Siege.
I can’t be sure, but I think this cartoon is going to be more focused on serious storytelling. So it’s not another kid-based show, which is why I think this might be worth watching. We’ll find out for sure on Netflix on July 30!
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!
I’ve never read The Old Guard, a comic by Greg Rucka about an immortal race of ass-kickers. But the movie adaptation is coming to Netflix in a week!
As someone who loves watching movies, I’m glad at least something is coming out during this global pandemic. I have to hope this’ll be good. Or at least fun. Charlize Theron is always a hoot. So let’s give The Old Guard a try!
