I’m very excited about this summer. There are a number of movies and TV shows I’m geeking out about and I’ll be talking about them here. All of the Fall shows will be on hiatus, but that’s okay, because I’ll soon have some new/old stuff to geek out about.
The second season of The Strain is on the FX network.
I very much enjoyed the first season, even though it was a bit uneven. I thought some of the characters were pretty dumb but it was very suspenseful and the vampires were awesome. Like a lot of shows, however, it fell into the trap of having a couple of token POC, but over time they became a little more fleshed out. I love vampires as much as you guys do, and we’ll be seeing more of them in the second season as the Vampocalypse gets into full swing.
From Dusk Til Dawn The Series
I’ve spoken to several people, who have no idea, what the Hell I’m talking about, when I mention this show. Well, for those not in the know, this is a new series based on the Quentin Tarantino film of the same name. Yeah, it’s about vampires too and they are very intriguing.
It’s produced and directed by Robert Rodriguez, for the new El Rey network. Going into its second season, the acting is alright, the Hispanic actors look very, very fine, and it’s just different enough from the film to make things suspenseful. There’s plenty of vampire action, with just enough Mexican Supernatural Mythos, to make them fascinating.
And the entire first season is available on Netflix. It’s totally binge worthy.
I very much enjoyed the first season of this. The only part of it that got boggy for me was the Dr. Frankenstein storyline, but the rest was very well done and the show looks gorgeous. It stars a full cast of the supernatural – psychics, Dorian Gray, a werewolf, an African shaman, and of course, vampires.
It stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, and Timothy Dalton on the Showtime network. I don’t have Showtime, but I do have Amazon. I’ll buy the whole season and recap/review each episode, right here.
This new version of Daredevil will be airing it’s entire first season on Netflix.Yet another story about a guy who puts on an odd suit and decides to go out and punch evildoers, because the police are horrible at their jobs. It will be interesting to see if it has any ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The trailer looks great, but really, all I hope is that its better than the movie and we get to see The Night Nurse. I’m going to be binging this one and reviewing as I go along and as time allows.
Some forthcoming posts will discuss:
The different Blob movies, including Rob Zombies new version, the upcoming Avengers film, Mad Max’s Fury Road and Jurassic World. I’ll be having thoughts about the Captain America films, Black Women in Genre TV, my niece’s favorite Anime, the world’s most beautiful films, the best movies about werewolves, and some Martial Arts favorites will be thrown in there, too.
Future reviews of books will include: Nick Cutter’s Horror novel, The Deep, Clive Barker’s new Pinhead novel called The Scarlet Gospels, will be out this summer, Alan Smale’s Clash of Eagles, which I’m totally loving right now, The Devil’s Detective by Simon Unsworth, and Richard Kadrey’s newest Sandman Slim novel will be released this summer, as well.
So stay tuned people!
