Just in time for Infinity War, I give you this fun, way more structured little movie to watch in its stead. This month, the mighty Jesus “CarpenThor” Christ and Wilfred Chipwhistler finally join the metahuman rebels at The Sanctuary to battle Tharkseid’s forces before the humans do it their way.

Meanwhile, a conflicted Beast Boi tries to figure out how to best deal with his past, Lex Jewthor decides to find his dimension-hopping wife Lois himself, Diana worries that her grandmother Madame Völva will do something dangerous along with Rocket Grodd, Norman Stillbourne puts his new powers to use, Loker Christ discovers he may not be the peak metahuman experiment after all, Misty’s abilities reach a new level, Chesterfield fights the manipulative powers of Sinistor, Mannibal leaves Kingpinferno behind, and something big hits the news in San Andreas. Also, a major character makes a comeback! I guess.

HBO’s Westworld is a well-produced show, gorgeous enough to rival Stanley Kubrick in one half and the best of Spaghetti Westerns in the other, that tries to be more clever and complicated than it can necessarily pull off. I enjoyed is first season quite a lot, but side with the critique that the way it plays with its own timeline wasn’t entirely thought-out and that its promises that something big will soon be revealed aren’t always to be trusted.

I don’t know why this has to happen whenever J.J. Abrams‘ name is placed on something. Hell, even the new Star Wars trilogy could end up retconning that which Luke said of Rey’s parents, and reveal that she was in fact raised by smoke monsters. But that’s for another time. We are talking science fiction, not space opera.

The season 2 opener, Into the Night, offers intriguing concepts and mysteries, but falls short in terms of making me connect with the characters – or at least all of them. Back when season 1 aired, my good friend Charlie noted that he had trouble fully recalling the events of a given episode. I couldn’t tell you if this is related, but I invite my readers to tell me if they too end up bored by some of these characters and whether they stick (I suppose, a partial point of Westworld is to challenge our perception that these robots are just robots).

Still, there are characters I liked the first time around. I liked the robot/”host” played by Thandie Newton and her storyline more than I liked that of Evan Rachel Wood‘s Dolores (the “real” main character), even if both of these AI’s yearn for similar things – it warmed my Swedish heart to see Fares Fares and Gustaf Skarsgård as well, of course. The humans are losing control of the AI’s, and I will want to see where this goes.

As long as there is a plan this time and the lack of answers isn’t explained away by some “Mystery Box” speech (I agree that riddles are often more interesting than the answers but I would argue it depends on the show).

3/5

This one’s worth checking out.

In the wake of the YouTube shooting and the continuing battle of David Hogg’s fascist “let’s try to prevent deaths” movement (‘cuz that totally refutes the inalienable rights given to me by a paper written in 1776 God), Stephen Dawking has decided to shine light on similar instances of flawed democrat logic to watch out for during the inevtiable debates that will follow. If you think I’m wrong, it is a sign you’re getting brainwashed and should check your closet for libtard lizard spies and/or immigrants. Outsmarted again, leftits!!
