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!
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.
Okay, seriously, though, wasn’t everyone ridiculously well dressed this episode? Every scene that wasn’t taking place in the Westworld park just had me jealous of how sleek and good everyone looked. Especially the ever-so-good-looking Ben Barnes. Yes, he is easy on the eyes, but it was really good to see Logan back, to finally know his last name is Delos, and to actually see some depth to his character that the writers hadn’t given him in season one.
Because Thanos Demands Your Silence, this review will not contain any spoilers pertaining to Avengers: Infinity War. Let me start, though; by saying it is the single greatest Marvel movie of all time and I don’t know how anything will ever be as good. If you’re concerned with the movie being lengthy at two and a half hours, just realize you’ll leave the theater wanting more and quite possibly questioning your life.
