Hooked on a Feeling
It's the middle of June. It's soaking wet. British summer is here! It's ridiculous to think that last Monday I was sunbathing on a British beach in baking hot sunshine with almost-clear blue skies overhead. So the real question should be: is it summer now, or was that one day all we're getting this year?
After the ever-diminishing returns of the the first three John Wick movies, it's time to dive back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy. You know, the one that came out after Captain America: The Winter Soldier? I know, I know, it can be difficult to tell these Marvel movies apart - why do all have to be so similar to each other?
Indiana Jones & The Fate of Atlantis is still chugging along nicely and shouldn't take too much longer to finish, although a review probably won't be posted until early July at this point. There are still things surprising me because of how many times I've played this game though, thanks to the three routes (wits, action, team) through the story. I keep expecting certain events to happen and have to remind myself that they're in a different play-through of the game.
The review of South Park: The Stick of Truth is still set for Monday 17th June, although a lot of my favourite parts are going to have to go unmentioned thanks to their very 'adult' (meaning puerile) nature. Still, a lot of fun to play through and - as I'm going to say in my review - it's definitely worth playing through at least once.
Orphan Black season 2 still hasn't been started, but it's only ten episodes of forty-five minutes so won't take too long to tear through - although I might need to watch season 1 again first just to make sure I'm fully up to speed.
One show I have finished is the incredible Chernobyl. I'll be posting a review of this on Monday 24th June, but will say that you should stop everything else you're doing and go and watch this now. It's one of the best TV shows I've seen in years and a contender for one of the greatest series ever made. An incredible story that sounds like fiction, but is very real history.
