Ridiculous Zack

After just recently teasing some kind of continuation of his DC Justice League stories which most were not expecting, film director Zack Snyder has teased a "ridiculous scale" roleplaying game related to his Netflix Rebel Moon films.

The first of which is expected in December.

Pluto Peek

Just now we spoke of another trailer tickling our B grade nerve. Netflix's "sneak peak" at upcoming anime film Pluto kicked our WTF-nerve.

We regard speaking to our computer screen as somewhat gauche but those three words erupted nonetheless.

Skull Crushed

Netflix's lingual plague series Hot Skull has been cancelled.

While we loved the concept and clever title the trailer was brimming over with over-used dialog and left us feeling cold.

DC Drops Doom and Titans

DC's Doom Patrol and Titans series have been cancelled with HBO promising that their currently on hiatus (in the US) fourth seasons were written to provide "proper" endings.

The news wouldn't be super surprising to anyone. Four seasons is a solid run for a superhero show and new bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran had heralded intentions to unify the DC universe.

Sci-Fi to the Rescue

Netflix have had great success with Korean series and films among international audiences. Their recently release JUNG_E though being bizarrely trashed by some reviewers is truly brilliant and we hope it does well.

One series which performed very well in Asia but not more broadly is Crash Landing on You, a romantic drama about a South Korean heiress who accidentally paraglides into North Korea and ends up falling in love with a North Korean officer.

Awesom_e JUNG_E

The first reviews for Train to Busan and Hellbound director Yeon Sang-ho's JUNG_E are trickling in and frankly look brutal.

We watched it ourselves before reading any of those reviews and found the film to be brilliant. Our only criticism is what might be some subtitle errors for early onscreen setting the scene text.

Make My Day

This morning we discovered a new sci-fi anime series called Make My Day coming to Netflix next month which had slipped beneath our radar. How did we miss it?

It seems like Netflix revealed it during their Geeked Week event in 2021 - before our blog's time - and then quietly published the trailer to the Netflix site, skipping YouTube and social media.
