I’m enjoying Jupiters Legacy (though I keep calling it Jupiters Children for some reason). The acting could be a bit better but by episode 3 it’s caught my attention, it’s nothing we haven’t read before but not been done ✔️ n a story before.  M

Well at least the book series is actually finished so they have that to pull from, and the middle slog from the series (book 6 and 7) can be condensed down quite easily considering those two books only seem to cover about 4 weeks book time,  I’m very hopeful for the show.  Can’t wait for the first preview the teasers released so far have been good (they just released a Lan for teaser a couple of days ago and hope really a true teaser (5 seconds long!!) it’s looking good).  I really hope the show does well, I’m rereading the books in perpetration

Despite its YA trappings (late teen protagonist, love triangle etc) I am enjoying Shadow and Bone quite a bit.  I like the Tsarist setting rather than Anglo, seemingly good acting and quite good to look at, and think Netflix are getting pretty good at these Fantasy gigs. 
On a similar note I am eagerly awaiting Wheel of Time from Amazon as it is one of my favourite Fantasy series that definitely needs a bit of money thrown at it to make a good adaptation and certainly needs to be a series as there is no way it would be possible as movies (unless they wanted to make a 7 or 8 movie octology?)

Watching The Irregulars on Netflix.  Doing an episode a night and must say quite into it by episode 3.  I like the structure with each episode being it’s own thing but having an overall story gradually being revealed makes it feel like old school TV rather than the usual binge TV we get on Netflix and Amazon.  Is a different take on the Holmes story (episode 3 and we still haven’t even met Sherlock), the young actors are all pretty good.  Belle thought it may have been based on a comic but it doesn’t seem so as I can’t find information any where.  I’d recommend you give it a look if your into Holmesian stories or just like a good mystery with a touch of horror.

Finally got back to the cinema on the weekend for Godzilla vs Kong, boy am I glad I watched this in the cinema.  I think it’s a perfect big screen blockbuster in my opinion, I forgot how loud our cinema was my ears were nearly bleeding!!! I live all the new Godzilla movies and I also really enjoyed Skull Island too so it was probably a given that I’d like this.  Also not sure if it was just because I haven’t been to the cinema for a year but the FX work on was amazing it was really like they just filmed a huge monkey and lizard fighting!!
CGI has either really gone up another level in the last year or they spent extra time while the movie was delayed polishing it.  I loved it oh and I’m on team Kong😊

I’m really liking it, I like the animation style and they have captured the look of the art from the original comic quite well.  I quite liked the original comic but then I have only read the first five or so gn’s and like all Kirkmans stuff it goes on quite a bit more than that so it could possibly drag later in the series.
You know that I’m if we can’t get that live action MC1 series I wouldn’t be complaining if the did Dredd in this style.

Bliss, an Amazon Prime original.  Owen Wilson being serious and Salma Hyek (?) trying to appear grungy and grotty (unsuccessfully I might add, she gorgeous no matter what).  All a bit confusing but I think it’s meant to be, I watched it as a Sci-fi movie about VR and all senate realities but after and reading some other reviews and people’s thoughts it could also just as easily been a story about drugs and addiction.  Certainly interesting 🤔 and maybe worth a second watch, generally well acted and well filmed and quite confusing to f you try to dig deeper which is either how it’s meant to be or because it actually wasn’t really any good 😆😆

Up to episode 5 of The Stand on Amazon.  Been a long time since I read the book (one of my favourite King novels) and I don’t remember much about the the original mini series but this seems pretty good so far, decently acted and some rather horrifying effects for old Captain Tripps.  I do like how they have mixed up the timelines so it’s not all end of the world apocalypse for the first few episodes and we get some as we are introduced to each character.  I honestly haven’t read the book since I was a teen and due to a lot of living between then and now I can’t remember but the all but they seem to be missing a pretty major character what was the Trash Can Mans name? 
Maybe a bit depressing for some as well what with watching a series about a pandemic that wipes out 99% of the population in current times but it does make it all the more relatable.

American Gods is back too, first couple of eps are slow but it’s still good even if it has gone a fair bit off book.  Looks like Mr World has been recast as Ms World which is a shame as Crispin Glover was very creepy as Mr World.’

Just about finished Alice in Borderland on the Netflix, very cool Japanese series that does some very interesting things about episode 3.  Worth a watch if you like Battle Royale and it’s ilk.  Based on a manga that has also been turned into an OVA but I haven’t read the manga or seen the OVA but I might seek it out when we I’m done with season 1.
Only watched the 1st episode of the Expanse season 5 so far, I’m going to take this slowly to make it last.

Finally getting around to the Man in the High Castle, slight problem is I do like it but been busy at work and when I start to watch it about 9.30 and night I keep falling asleep!!!! It’s annoying the shit out of me as I am enjoying what I’m watching but having problems getting through a whole episode without dozing off :( :(
Oh and heads up to anyone with Amazon Prime though if you are a fan you’d probably know this The Expanse is back in a couple of weeks!!!

Why haven’t I watched Ash vs The Evil Dead before?
Just started it on Netflix 4 episodes in and it’s great, lots of splatter and very like a direct continuation of Evil Dead 2.
It’s groovy

Great news one of my favourite series, and yes season 2 did just suddenly finish without any kind of satisfying wrap up.

I blasted through both seasons of Cobra Kai I one weekend and I don’t usually binge shows I like to make em last but it was just too morish.  Never been a big fan of the Karate Kid movies but had seen them enough times for this to work, very impressed with how I couldn’t decide who to go for in the tourney at the end of first season.
If you like a bit of Ridley Scott I suggest Raised by Wolves, absolutely glorious looking and interesting story to boot, 3 episodes have dropped to get you into it and I think I have the forth to watch tonight.

Anyone out there watching Lovecraft Country?
Watched episode 4 last night and quite enjoying it, I like that each episode seems to be a bit of a mini movie and be its own genre.  Eps 1 & 2 were right lovecraftian horror, ep 3 is a ghost story and ep 4 is an Indian Jones like adventure.  Interesting overarching storyline but you can basically be watch each episode in isolation to the others and enjoy it.
The Boys are back in town too With a nice 3 episode arc to start the season, I do like how they are going a different direction to the comic too, Homelander is exceptionally creeped and crazy and I actually thought the new Stormfront character wasn’t going to be too abominable but they course corrected me by episode 3 she is a right c$&nt 😂

Total War Troy

Well at least it was free, I really liked 3 Kingdoms and have an absolute obsession with the Total War Warhammer games(over 1000 hours on WH2) but this one just seems pretty meh.  I’ve only put a few hours into it so far so I might find myself enjoying it more iirc I found 3 Kingdoms pretty average to begin with but ended up enjoying it quite a bit but I really do like the whole War of 3 Kingdoms era and have never really been into the Iliad era stuff.  I’m also a bit disappointed you don’t have the option to run a mythological campaign where your legendary units (centours, Giants and Minotaurs) are actual monsters rather than just guys dressed up, it shouldn’t have been that hard for them to offer two ways of playing the campaign like they did with 3 Kindoms (historical where your generals are just generals and you troops tire realistically and then Romance mode where you generals are absolute beasts who can take on whole units by themselves and your troops can run more without getting fatigued as easily).
Like all Total War games it is gorgeous to look at and sounds spectacular.
Roll on Warhammer 3 please
