Check Out Lockwood & Co. on Netflix

There’s a new TV show coming to Netflix today called Lockwood & Co. It’s created and showrun by Joe Cornish, the genius behind the Attack the Block movie, which I love. That is more than enough to get me to watch. But this trailer is also really good. It’s about some young ghost busters who use swords to fight the supernatural.

Apparently, this is based on a book series, so that’s neat. Yay books! But I’m really looking forward to this new show. I’ve been needing a new show to watch, and I think Lockwood & Co. will be it. You can all watch as well and let me know what you thought. Should be fun.

Hopefully The Witcher: Blood Origin Will Be A Good Show

Even after losing star Henry Cavill from the main Witcher show, Netflix is full steam ahead on more Witcher content. We had that one cartoon — Nightmare of the Wolf, which was great — and we’ve got a third season coming out soon enough. Now next up we will get another live action show, The Witcher: Blood Origin. Looks pretty neat.

It also looks like half House of the Dragon/half Andor. A prequel series that’s about fighting a fascist empire? Throw in a little Lord of the Rings with that fellowship of various fantasy races and you’ve got quite the show on your hands. It could be good. I know I’ll be watching, because why not?

The Witcher: Blood Origin comes out on Christmas Day…though I probably won’t watch it right then.

Random Movie Trailer Monday: Troll

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.

Slumblerland Could Be a Fun Movie

I like movies. I like new movies. I like most Netflix movies I’ve seen. They’re largely good. But few of them have been truly spectacular. So what are we to make of this full trailer for Slumberland? We’ve got Jason Momoa hamming it up. And it’s based on the classic Nemo stories.

Looks pretty fun. Looks pretty wild. But is it just CGI madness and little substance? I suppose we’ll find out when Slumberland comes to Netflix on Nov. 18!

The Sandman TV Show is Closer Than Ever

Another Comic Con trailer we got this past weekend was a big, beefy trailer for the Sandman TV show coming to Netflix. I read all of Sandman back in the day and it was as great a story as everybody says. The TV show looks like a damn fine adaptation.

There seems to be a real focus on The Corinthian being the big bad of the show. Was he that big of a deal in the comics? I know he’s got that freaky look, but I don’t remember him being the major villain of the series. The Sandman comic wasn’t about that. So hopefully we get more of the cool, dreamy stuff instead of the straight villain fight stuff. Still looks great!

The Sandman comes to Netflix on Aug. 5.
