Brightburn

brightburn

I was so hyped for this movie with an awesome premise, what if Superman was a horror icon instead of a superhero. During Black Friday I went nuts admittedly catching up on all that I missed in movies, one of which being this. Did it live up to my hype but the hype of so many others?

Tory and Kyle Breyer are good folks living in the small town of Brightburn Kansas who wanted nothing more than a child to love. They get there wish in a startling event when a ship crashes in there front yard, giving them there son Brandon. For the first twelve years of his life, Brandon Breyer is a sweet kid until he hears a voice calling out to him from the barn. Not long after he begins discovering marvelous but terrible things about himself and how powerful he truly is. How far will Tory and Kyle go before they see there son maybe wasn’t such a gift from above?

If you saw the trailers and thought this was going to be a horror twist on Man of Steel than I’d say you are kinda right. I do love the concept and the actors do give the movie there all. Brandon Breyer is a cool horror icon who feels unique but also pays tribute to Superman a lot too and there are some messy kills to make him a badass. My biggest issue is the pacing. This movie feels destined to be a full fledged two and a half hours but it’s only 90 minutes. I feel like more could’ve been explained and things like his change happen too suddenly or where the design of his mask came from. It does have a nice after credit scene that gives us a window into a sequel but I hope next time it’s more explained. In the end, while not a mega hit, Brightburn is a fine horror movie and worth checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Borderlands 3: Heist of the Handsome Jackpot DLC trailer

Borderlands 3 was such a mixed bag for me, so I was really curious what the DLC would look like. Essentially it looks like Ocean’s 11 with a Borderlands skin. I’m a bit disappointed but hopefully there is a decent story and awesome loot here. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Plan 8 trailer

Looking at the opening of this trailer, I immediately thought of a Terminator rip off but I have to admit, it looks really badass. The combat looks interesting and I dig the homespun futuristic tech; the jet-pack gave me a Vulture vibe from Spider-man: Homecoming which was pretty awesome. I can see me giving this game a try at sale. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Half- Life: Alyx teaser

I always wanted to jump on the Half-Life bandwagon but I never got a chance to. Alyx appears to be a VR game which seems odd. Not really having any connection to the series, everything about this trailer seems kinda meh to me. The VR aspect doesn’t look that great. For the fans, I hope it looks great but as a casual it looks meh. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Antebellum trailer

I do love when random horror trailers pop up in my YouTube feed. Antebellum looks pretty interesting for a lot of reasons. I like the historical throwbacks rather than looking like a straight demonic ghost story. The cinematography looks good and the producers behind it look promising. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hows it going everyone? Today is a day many people love and many people hate for various reasons. For years I didn’t bother with it but after my mom moved back to the area it became more about family getting together than anything else. So today me and torsty are at momma saviors house just eating tons of food and watching the kids play with the football game on. So all my American friends, stay safe, don’t drink and drive and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Cats trailer 2

Ok, I’m pretty sure I said this last time, but WTF Hollywood. I know Cats is a masterpiece of Broadway musicals and I’m in no way crapping on these talented singers, dancers, and artists hard work, the visuals in this movie genuinely freak me out. What I think does it is that nothing of the makeup looks fake, in fact the make up and prostheses make me not think of Cats but these this are some strange hybrid creatures. I’m pretty curious how this movie will turn out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
