Fall is my favorite time of year and it looks like there are plenty of good (hopefully), interesting and exciting books to read upcoming so I picked 10 that sounded best of the best that I don’t actually hear that much about.
So after the Spiderman No Way Home trailer I ran into a bunch of on-line “hot takes” that were like oh, I can’t wait for Tobey’s Peter to drag Tom’s Peter! Oh it will be fun to see him smack him around…
And naturally I was like wait what?
But it all of course came back to Tony and the idea that Tobey’s Peter (let’s call him OG Peter) would drag Tom’s Peter (let’s call him Marvel Pete) for being friends with Stark and taking the tech.
And naturally I thought no, no, he wouldn’t but I rewatched the first two Spiderman films to see if my thoughts held up and I came to some interesting Spider related ephihanies.
Okay even for a Witcher animated movie Nightmare of the Wolf opens with such violence I was like, eh maybe not.
Luckily I stuck with it and this look into the life of Vesemir (he’s super important to Geralt) was well worth it. And while violent throughout with a great battle at the end nothing really reached the gross violence of the opening if you’re squeamish.
Ever since I watched this movie I’ve had a hard time remembering it’s name. Which probably says a lot about the film right there. I actually think the biggest problem with the movie is that it has the wrong lead.
No offense to Hugh Jackman and company they were fine.
I’ve been having some fun with the myth retellings this summer but even so this one about Helen of Troy and her sister Clytemnestra was a nice surprise. Mainly because you think you know a story fairly well and the author actually does some new things with it.
I’m pretty sure he’s the worst in any retelling. Maybe he’s just the biggest asshole in the whole Troy mess.
So The Suicide Squad disappointed at the box office (which kind of surprises me) and now everybody has to give a reason why and one of the worst reasons I saw in several places is Harley Quinn.
I’ve heard that she’s overexposed and that Birds of Prey devalued her. And now the controversial opinions I was working is going to turn into a rant about that and D.C. overall my apologies ahead of time for any swearing. It’s been a trying week and now this shit.
