It Never Rains...


Vanessa Kirby as Hattie in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
 

...Unless it's summer in Britain, with even the ever-increasing threat of climate change can't stop it raining what feels like every day of the bloody week. Fortunately, there's a lot to do indoors in London, including seeing many new movies.


Movies

Speaking of which, this Saturday's review will be Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, which is a very long title to try and convince fans of the parent franchise that this spin-off is just as deserving of their money.


This weekend, it'll be at least Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood's turn to be watched, something my friends can agree on, with a potential viewing of Good Boys too depending on time available and the weather. The former obviously more interesting - despite my having never really clicked with Tarantino's movies - but the latter looks like it could be fun too.


Games

I finally progressed past the Mary Jane stealth mission I was up to in Spider-Man! Unfortunately, that was pretty followed by a Miles stealth section and I stopped playing again. I really, really cannot stress just how much I truly hate these sections and hope that they're removed completely from a sequel if one ever gets made.


I'm also similarly irritated by Modern Warfare 2, as I'm now very near the end of the game and what wasn't even a particularly good experience to begin with has devolved into a boring shooting gallery which I've played through before and don't know if I have the strength to bother with again. Either way, I'll post a review of the game next Monday.


Alpha Protocol has continued to hold my interest the most out of the games I'm currently working through, although that wasn't exactly a surprise as it's a fantastic game despite the semi-regular glitches that can make things harder or worse for you depending on when they crop up.


TV

I haven't started Orphan Black's fourth season yet, but have a long weekend coming up so expect to get through at least the first three episodes.


Other

Yes, there is an other this time! I'm making my way through Stephen King's It, which I hope to get finished before the second movie reaches cinema screens in September (why not wait a month and put it out at Halloween?). Once I'm done, a review will go up at the next available opportunity.
