Aquaman Sequal and The Trench Spin-off

For those fans of Aquaman, and judging by the fact that it is the highest grossing DC movie of all time there are a lot of you, it will come as no surprise it is getting a sequel. It, however, is also getting a spin-off, a horror movie called The Trench. This seems like a perfect fit considering what the Trench was in the movie and what it was used for. Rottentomatoes has more details, but honestly, I am assuming The Trench will be a prequel to Aquaman considering the events of the actual movie and that it is thought none of the main characters will be in it. I am actually really excited to see how it plays out, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho

Ken Jeong, or as most people know him as the guy from The Hangover. In what I believe is his first Netflix special and his return to stand-up he covers all sorts of topics from his decision to leave medicine and get into movies, what it was like being a doctor and even some stories from the road such as meeting Presidents.

The stand up is pretty funny but honestly, it is for a specific type of humor. For example, if you aren’t a fan of the self-deprecating and insult style you probably shouldn’t watch this one. It also is not for kids in any capacity, there is plenty of languages that they really shouldn’t hear. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Ben Affleck “I’m not Batman”

For those that missed the memo, or are simply holding out hope that there is one more movie for Ben as The Bat, https://theplaylist.net/ben-affleck-not-batman-20190215/ reports that during an interview Ben flat out says word for word, “I’m not Batman.” Now, most of you reading this already knew this, but a few people out there were holding out hope, and I am sorry to dash your dreams. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Superman In Shazam?

Screenrant is reporting that Henry Cavill shot a cameo for the upcoming Shazam movie, but it is questionable as to whether or not it will be used. For me this is a bit weird, I would love to see it but if Cavill is truly done as the man of steel why bother? I honestly think this is why they are questioning if they will use it or not. Aside from that, I can see no reason why they would film it and not use it. What do you guys think and do you want to see it? Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned From A Mythical Man

There is a story about Bill Murray showing up at a college party and just hanging out doing the dishes and giving out life advice or the story about how he once stole someone’s french fries and told them “nobody will ever believe you” before walking away. There is even a scene in Zombieland where Tallahassee yells “It’s Bill fucking Murray”  which is kind of play on the entire mythos that is Bill Murray just showing up places where ever he wants and being loved by people. There is even a website dedicated to it, https://www.billmurraystory.com/

That is what this documentary is about, Tommy Avallone looking into these stories to see if there is any truth to them and why people love the man so much. He starts out by explaining that Bill has no real agent or anything like that, simply a 1-800 number that if you can get (it is apparently hard) you can simply call him and leave a message to pitch a movie idea, which he attempts to do. Does it work? Well, you have to watch to find out, I won’t ruin it all.

The movie is quite fascinating, and honestly, the man is truly a legend not because of all he has accomplished, which could be an entire article on its own, but because of who he is. He is a huge celebrity that and yet he always seems to enjoy interacting not so much with his fans, but with people in general. The movie also gives you some tremendous insight into the man himself, so give it a watch. Also, Bill, if you read this let’s go for drinks. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Monster Hunter Movie Release Date

Eurogamer is reporting that we finally have a release date for the Monster Hunter movie, September 4th next year.  This is quite the wait but I have to be honest, having over 200 hours into Monster Hunter World and not even bothering to count the others I am not really looking forward to it. The synopsis alone (which can be seen in the Eurogamer article) just doesn’t seem good to me. Happily, it is still quite the ways off so obviously this is by no means a reason to call it quits already, but I am definitely not hyped up for it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Thoughts on Ben Affleck Batman Departure

By now we have all seen the confirmation that Ben Affleck won’t be Batman anymore. If not, here is an article from cinemablend. This is a bit weird for me tho, since when he was first announced I hated the idea. The truth is I actually rather liked him as Batman and it kind of sucks he never got a true solo Batman movie. Not that I think he was the best at the job, but he was far better than I personally expected.

That being said, it did become quite obvious in Justice League he was there more out of obligation than any desire to be there which I understand, it wasn’t exactly a good movie. He was cursed with being a great Batman in a time of mediocre scripts. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
