Well Geeked Week did bring us a teaser, full of fast images and Ciri centric. It wasn’t what I was hoping for but hey I do like that character and there’s a date for when we might get further news…
The first episode of Loki (Glorious Purpose) gave me Lost fandom flashbacks but in a really good way where you could sit around for ages and discuss not just the episode but philosophy, science, religion, books, out there movies you’ve never even heard of…
Aw those were the days.
And Loki definitely serves up a character deep dive in episode one but also seems to be hinting at those even bigger questions from the MCU.
The first bit of news out of Geeked Week might have been the best news for a shitty Monday but Shadow and Bone is getting a second season! Jasper’s going to get his demo expert […]
This week Loki finally debuts on Disney+.
I’ve been looking forward to this one for ages. But remember Disney has moved this up so instead of Friday’s now it will debut on Wednesday June 9th. Unfortunately still at 12 a.m. but hey it’s finally here!
So the Willy Wonka prequel is going forward with Timothee Chalamet and I can not even imagine what that origin story is going to look like.
I mean that was a movie that scared the crap out of me when I was a horror and chocolate loving kid and I found Johnny Depp just as unsettling so I don’t know how I feel about this.
I must admit I only really knew the story of Ariadne through who she’s connected to. Mainly the Minotaur (not one I ever really knew either) and Daedalus and Icarus.
So when I picked this book up thinking to just try a chapter I was drawn in fast. It’s a pretty readable book. Ariadne is like a good beach read myth retelling. While nowhere near as lyrically drawn it has some shades of Circe as well.
There are a lot of hot takes out there about the new Cruella which is basically an AU story for that matter. Some valid (it didn’t need to be Cruella) and some not so much. Did people really want to see her kill dogs?
This was almost a rant about movies and people’s responses but instead I’m going to keep it simple like her hair. Black and white. Good and bad. And all opinions of course welcome.
But also Spoilers
Gunpowder Milkshake is another of my most anticipated films and we got a trailer for that today to! And talk about a stacked cast 🙂
Also since the trailers are delivering this week let me just put out there but how about The Witcher Season 2 trailer? Well a girl can dream.
After Baby Driver I never thought I’d be excited for an Edgar Wright film again. But it has Anya and Matt Smith and time travel and maybe ghosts…
Well we got a teaser trailer for Marvel’s Eternals movie and while I’m not as enthused about this story I am interested that this may be Marvel’s biggest gamble.
At least in terms of character origin stories.
Plus I want to be enthused I really do.
