Black Panther

T'Challa on the Throne

So, after a nice fajita dinner at my favorite local Mexican Restaurant, I went and saw Black Panther. This is the first MCU movie that had a character appear in a movie prior to an Origin/Self-titled movie. For those who have barely any exposure to the Character outside of his role in Civil War, this is the time to learn about him and where he came from. The turn out at the local theater was what I expected for a general Marvel movie since the ethnic break down here is mostly Caucasians and Hispanics.

Bright

Bright Movie Poster

Got to watch Bright tonight. I have been looking forward to this since I saw the trailer from SDCC. I was impressed then. And I’ll be honest. It was worth the wait. I enjoy fantasy elements, and this movie sets up the basis for a world that could be used to write a ton of stories.

Suicide Squad

Got to see the Thursday night showing of Suicide Squad at the local theater. There was a line here in Granbury for the first showing.

I had a grand ol' time indeed.

The movie was a great flick. It brought us back into the world we last saw with the Death of Superman. We aren’t going to see much in the way of the heroes though. No, they only serve as a story point as we get to meet some of the worst criminals this world has to offer. Acting on orders from a covert part of the US Government. Succeed, get time off your sentence. Fail, you die.

Star Trek: Discovery

Star Trek: Discovery Logo

We’ve seen some great stuff from the San Diego Comic Con this last week. And a lot of it revolving around next years big movies and series.

This includes CBS streaming only Star Trek Series, which now has a name.

Star Trek: Discovery

And just from what I've seen so far it looks like they will be basing the U.S.S. Discovery off Ralph Macquarie’s original Phase II Enterprise concept design. That frankly looks like it might make an interesting ship once we see what’s coming from the plot.

Vampire Hunter D Vol 1

Vampire Hunter D is one of those books I waited a while to be translated. Then around 2006 they started releasing english translations here in the United States. Naturally I purchased them and read them as I could... but then my job situation went up in smoke and I had to hold off. So now that I can finally purchase them digitally on Kindle/Nook I've decided to reread them and then review them as I do so.

DareDevil - The Netflix Series

So DareDevil came out last Friday, and pretty much everyone I know binge watched it. Everyone on every other geek site binge watched it, all like that. Frankly I don't care for, nor have the time all at once, to binge a 24 episode season. I like taking my time with a series, enjoying each episode, going away, thinking on it, then coming back. So I've ended up only at Episode 6 so far.

I tend to get pulled away at good parts at times as well.
