Movies centering around an apocalypse of some sort are a dime a dozen. Every year there’s always a handful of films that come out within this genre, as well as plenty of televisions shows spanning every network and streaming service. While there are standouts such as 28 Days Later, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Walking Dead, nothing is particularly unique about these movies/tv shows anymore. So, how did 2011’s The Divide stack up? Spoilers ahead!
iZombie may have announced that its fifth season would be their last, but for some cast members, Team Z will last forever. Rahul Kohli, Malcolm Goodwin, and Liv Moore herself, Rose McIver, marked themselves with the classic “i” in their show’s name. While this may not be the most newsworthy of stories, it’s still heartwarming to see. Five seasons are a good amount for a show to still have substantial content, without feeling like it’s dragging on. Regardless, as fans, we see everyone in their roles and stories and forget that one day they won’t be those beloved characters anymore. To see them dedicated to what the show means to them and us, it’s a sight for sore eyes.
You may have seen your fair share of heist movies, but have you ever seen one done by the Steve McQueen and Gillian Flynn before? No, you have not. That is what is setting this star-studded movie apart from all other heist movies. When you have possibly one of the best directors of all time pairing up with one of the greatest modern-day authors, you get Widows. If McQueen and Flynn aren’t enough to bring you to the table, you should check out the cast list.
Over this past weekend, while on my couch feeling like a sick potato, I searched through Netflix for a show to watch. I wanted something that had more than one season and something non-Marvel/DC related, but with a nice fanbase. One show that I knew had a cult following was Wynonna Earp, a supernatural Western horror show based on a comic book produced by IDW. I don’t often watch the Syfy channel for its sometimes low-budgeted programs and not very good acting. Still, I gave Wynonna Earp a shot and I have a lot to say.
While Christmas only comes once a year, new behind the scenes photos and videos of The Punisher S2 surfacing are gifts enough for this fan. It’s a very good time of year for us fans of Netflix’s Marvel shows. Daredevil’s season three seems well underway, Iron Fist S2 has started filming, and Luke Cage season two premieres June 22nd of this year.
To me, the most anticipated one is the second season of The Punisher. Jon Bernthal knocked his role as Frank Castle out of the park in the first season. Another stellar performance was Ben Barnes as Frank’s now frenemy Billy Russo. If you haven’t finished watching the first season, turn back now because there’s spoilers ahead.
