Interesting point. It's true you never quite know what you're going to get with him.

Dead Zone is also a personal favourite.

I could live without that whole opening section, whch really super-duper felt like it was added in re-shoots (was it?). As soon as Han finds his way onto the Imperial battleground, meets Chewie and the gang, and tries to rob that train, things pick up immensely. Kessel I find kind of hard to believe; some more thought into how a small group could infiltrate one of the most notorious prisons in the galaxy would not have gone amiss.

And from there it's kind of a slow burn into mediocrity. Not awful, and having picked it up in a blu-ray bargain bin I'm okay with it on my shelf. I would like to be able to say more about a high-budget origin story for one of the best characters in sci-fi (by which I *almost* mean Chewbacca).

Yeah, it's a times like this I wish the digital sub came out on Saturdays! I am absolutely buzzing for the next installment of Brink.

With that lineup, it could be "2000AD" written in Times New Roman on a blank white page and I'd still be all over it. That said, I like Dredd's depiction, if little else.

Superior Future Shock this week. Coincidence that it was given a little extra space to breathe?

PM has the duel of the fates, so I can't bring myself to hate it utterly, and I agree with many of your comments on Clones. Kamino in particular; Obi-Wan vs. Jango (less so the obnoxious little Boba); the whole last 20 mins. Absolutely spectacular, ground-breaking imagery in that Jedi. vs everyone hoopla. If I ever re-watch them, it certainly won't be for Annakin's narrative arc.

I haven't seen either film, but fresh off a highly enjoyable re-read (with heavy caveats for all the underage perving) 'm keen to do so. Does Chapter 2 wrap things up completely?
Yup, done and done, no hint of any sequel escape hatches.

I enjoyed It Chaper Two a lot, but I had been led to believe by a couple of reviews that it was a five-star masterpiece, and it isn't. The adult casting was brilliant, with special props to James Ransone (thanks imdb) whose extension of Jack Dylan Grazer's (ditto) amazing performance as Eddie in the first one could have been awful, but ended up a riot. Lots of comedy, which I think is how any one of us would try to deal with a situation so bizarre and horrific, and lots of the feels as well...all-in-all very good from a character standpoint. I did not like ending, especially since they edited the werewolf out of the first chapter, where the whole "it must abide by whatever form it takes" theme should've been foreshadowed.

Jaegir is outstanding, I must agree.

Solicits for November comics - trades not covered here


Some dark and foreboding tales coming our way this winter.
Can't believe we're getting series 4 of Brink already. Sweet.
Oh shit that is some good news right there.

Too many sub-forums, I completely agree with that.

I watched 10 minutes of one episode of Gotham, and I couldn't believe the below-amateur levels of scripting, production, and acting on display.

Or A Matter of Life and Death, for that matter. Maiden are a great example of a band that absolutely should not stop, ever. :)

Rise of Skywalker's performance will be telling for the future of the franchise, that's for sure. I expect it to be great, in that frustratingly imperfect way that most JJA films are great. Disney's handling of Star Wars has been all over the place, but you can't deny they've thrown everything they've got at it. I rate Rogue One as second only to Empire, and I never would have expected that five years ago.
