So far, The Walking Dead season 9’s episode titles have been a dead giveaway for each of their segmented stories. A New Beginning was, well, a new beginning in more ways than one, The Bridge was literally all about a bridge, and this week’s episode, Warning Signs, is one giant alarm bell for the impending chaos to come. It may have taken a while for episode 3’s tension to ratchet up to noteworthy levels but, by its end, enough happens to warrant sticking with the season for more.Read moreHow will Rick leave The Walking Dead season 9?But let's start at the beginning, which opened up with such normality that you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for an episode of Neighbours. Rick wakes up, checks his crops, and returns to bed with Michonne before deciding to take the day off to spend some quality time with her and Judith. The scenes in which the happy family are subsequently playing and having fun together is affecting stuff, made all the more touching given that … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead S9.03 review: “A sub-par murder mystery kept afloat by some of the best scenes of season 9 so far”
Extras season 2 episode 3
My Hero Academia has made a name for itself within the shonen genre--the young adult focused anime and manga which tend to have lots of action--cementing itself as one of the top shonen manga and anime resonating with both Eastern and Western audiences. So, it’s about time that My Hero would get the feature film treatment. Most of the film takes place in between Seasons 2 and 3 of the anime, while the U.A. students are on Summer Break. While it offers a fun adventure, ultimately it suffers from the same issue as many anime films based on an ongoing shonen property: The characters aren’t allowed to grow, the story is self-contained and never expands on the full narrative of the show, and it all ends up feeling like an expanded filler episode of the show.My Hero focuses on the hero-in-training Izuku Midoriya, whose dream is to grow up and be just like the hero he idolizes, All Might. However, at a young age, Midoriya discovers he lacks any "quirks," My Hero’s term for … [Read more...] about My Hero Academia: Two Heroes Review: Does The My Hero Movie Go Plus Ultra?
It’s difficult to give a hugely meaningful preview based on hands-off footage, especially if that footage was all pre-recorded. What I can definitely tell you, if this will be any surprise, is that if you really liked or disliked Life Is Strange, you will probably have the same reaction to Life Is Strange 2 because it is Life Is Strange but more. Taking place about three years after the first season, Life Is Strange 2 has more of all of it. More OST mimbling acoustic guitar music, more tracks from cool (but more expensive) bands, more of the protagonist looking at stuff like packets of cookie dough and possibly having thoughts about it, more sitting still for ages in picturesque spots, more teen struggle, more ultimately quite binary choices, more dialogue that’s at times so unnatural it’s almost impressive. Look out for “you thirsty bitch!”, which I am sincerely hoping will be the new “hella”. But more of the good stuff, too. More cutesy … [Read more...] about 5 themes emerging in Life Is Strange 2’s first episode
