Deadpool reaction trailer

So it weirdly seems fitting that this is how Deadpool would pop up in the MCU. Not a huge cameo, not a reality bending movie, but a reaction trailer to a Ryan Reynolds movie. Granted, Free Guy looks great but honestly Deadpool and Korg are a fun duo and I hope to see them together again. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Black Widow

Black Widow (Movie, 2021) | Trailer, Release Date, & More | Marvel

On the run after being declared a fugitive after Civil War, Natasha Romanoff is used to lonely undercover gigs and being on the run. She’s also used to losing family. When attacked by a skull-masked assailant known as the Taskmaster, Natasha is faced with a terrible fact that the Russian organization that created her and countless Widows is still at large and it’s up to her and her old spy family to bring down the “Red Room” once and for all while being hunted by a enemy that not only as adapted to Natasha’s fighting skills but the other Avengers as well.

Ok, I’m not going to bullshit anyone here, I hated this movie. Not every MCU movie was a gem but at least had redeeming features and was entertaining to various degrees; I was not entertained by this movie. The plot is a bad recycling of Captain America: Winter Soldier with none of the epic fights, drama, or characters that movie had. The fights are few and far between and are so over the top, I couldn’t get invested; knowing Widow was going to survive this movie sure as hell didn’t help the tensionless action either. Taskmaster, a badass menace in the comics, is a boring droid pretending to be Winter Soldier that’s story is both predictable and uneventful. The comedy is forced and cringe, often added to some really serious moments which multiplies the cringe. The pacing is awful and this movie dragged. I will say the main cast tried their asses off but drowned under the shit script and honestly Black Widow deserved a way better movie than this. In the end, I don’t recommend this movie and I hope this was just a fluke because if this is the trend, the MCU is toast. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Evil Dead: The Musical

Have you ever watched the classic Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn and wished Ash and the Deadites broke out into song? Well, good news, there is a legitimate musical. Evil Dead: The Musical recounts Evil Dead 1 and 2 as well as pieces of Army of Darkness in a jaunty, goofy, and damn infectious musical. Seriously, once I began watching I couldn’t stop. The music is cheesy but lovable and some of the most catchy I’ve heard in a few years; for days on end I listened until I could sing along with such toe tappers as ” Do the Necronomicon”, ” What the Fuck was that”, “Join Us- featuring a singing Canadrian Demon Moose”, and “Housewares Employee”. I laughed, I bopped along with the talented cast who you can tell loved the material, and even cheered at the inventive, gory demon scenes. In the end, this is way more fun and spirited than I thought it would be and absolutely deserves betting checked out. May the Canadrian demons bring you glory.

Psychonaunts 2 announcement trailer

Psychonaunts is one of those bizarre games I have the utmost respect for because it was trying to be different and make an odd, zany world of its own. The legacy seems to have continued with the long awaited Psychonaunts 2 and I’m pretty damn excited. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Demon Slayer ( season 1)

Well, it’s certainly been a hot minute since I covered some anime. I’ve gotten plenty of requests as well as started many but never finishing but I’ve started again. Demon Slayer is one of the hottest anime to drop since My Hero Academia took off and the movie is now the top-grossing anime film of all time, beating Dragonball Super: Broly . So is the hype worth it?

Tanjiro is a kind hearted young man who loves and wants to take care of his mother and siblings. Life is rough but he glides through smiling kindly…until blood thirsty demons ravage his family, leaving himself and his sister Nezeko as the sole survivors; Nezeko has been left as a violent, murderous demon. Heartbroken, Tanjiro sets off to cure his sister of her demon blood and regain her humanity, undergoing the training of becoming a Demon Slayer, mastering the art of water breathing and gaining new friends as he sets off on the impossible task of not only curing his sister but hunting down the original demon to get her cure…

First and foremost, this anime is absolutely breathtaking on the eyes. The use of color and animation styles, especially during the fight scenes is truly beautiful and makes the series instantly stand out. The relationship between Tanjiro and Nezeko is simple but powerful much like Edward and Alfonse from Fullmetal Alchemist and the characters around them are fascinating and cool, both heroes and villains alike. The season ends on a really cool cliffhanger that directly leads into the movie. In the end, Demon Slayer is a very promising anime I highly recommend checking out, especially if you are new to anime or just want something both heartwarming and badass. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy reveal trailer

Oh dear…another Marvel cash grab. While I didn’t have much faith in the Avengers game, Guardians isn’t really filling me with much faith either. I got serious Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale series flashbacks here and the gameplay we got to see didn’t wow me what so ever. Hopefully I can be wrong, but time will tell. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Cats (2019)

Oh boy everyone…that’s basically all this review is going to sum up really. There is plenty to say and I feel WTF sums it all up really damn good. First of all, I actually like musicals and I respect Andrew Lloyd Weber for making something this bizarre in the first place; I’m sure we’ve heard the stories of Cats 2019 and are wondering how true they are. Is Cats a masterpiece or a bust?

So Cats primarily (we’ll get back to that) follows a abandoned cat who is left on the cold streets where she meets a host of other Gelical Cats who sing there way to a better life…

So yeah Cats is pretty much a dumpster fire as a film. Again, I respect the musical and as a stage show I think it works. If they made a animated adaptation I think it could have been better than this. Everyone is nightmare fuel to look at. The off-putting sensation you got from the trailer never goes away and during the more sensual dance numbers, I felt pretty creeped out; the dancing cockroaches made me shiver. This movie is full of truly talented people who feel really out of place here- Ian McKellen, Judy Dench, Idris Elba, and Rebel Wilson to name a few. While their presences are baffling, no one is this movie doesn’t try their ass off. Jennifer Hudson, despite the hideous effects, steals the show for me and she almost brought me to tears with her rendition of “memory”. The format of the story is fluid which hurts it; we get characters for a song, they disappear, rinse and repeat. While the characters look terrifying, the sets are great and again, I must stress this sincerely, the cast tries their asses off to make something out of this. In the end, Cats is a disaster that deserves to be seen to be believed, if not for the spectacle than to appreciate the work that went into it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
