A word to the 'wise: It's coming


 

No, the title isn't referring to Brexit or the revocation of Article 50 (although hopefully the latter will happen at some point), but the return of a certain murderous clown. No, not Joker either, although I suppose he is also about to get his own movie too. Man, coulrophobes are screwed, aren't they?


Movies

While It: Chapter Two may be getting watched this weekend (and I'll try and not leave the review for a week this time), it's Good Boys who'll be getting graded in the movie review this Saturday after it easily won out over Crawl - which may now have to wait a little longer before I get to see it. It's a really good movie and very much like a live-action South Park, so take that as you will.


As for the It sequel, this is a horror film that my friends actually can't wait to see in comparison to other recent offerings, although I don't know if they realise yet just how long it is. Avengers: Endgame as a cap to a decade-long story was understandably lengthy, but I'm not so sure about Pennywise's chances of being so favourably looked on.


Games

I've only played the first twenty minutes of Modern Warfare 3 so far and it's already more enjoyable than anything in the previous game. The controls feel much better and there's a little restraint with the on-screen action, thankfully including how the game shows when you're badly injured - you can still the game!


In addition, I still have to finish off Assassin's Creed Odyssey's first DLC story; Alpha Protocol, which I really don't want to finish because I'm enjoying it so much; Spider-Man on PS4, which I still don't want to go back to because of the dreadful 'stealth' missions; I really want to start The Witcher 3 again; and I've also just bought Divinity: Original Sin 2 and Batman: The Enemy Within.


In other words, plenty to get on with, probably including some smaller games as some of those titles will take a while to get through...


TV

With The Grand Tour's first three seasons out of the way, it's time to resume Orphan Black when I get the chance. I'll be starting it's fourth season this weekend, so the review will probably go up in a couple of weeks. After that, there'll be just one season remaining and I can move onto something else.


Books

Yes! A fourth section! Thanks to the upcoming It sequel, I've been making my way through the book as I thought I'd read through it before Chapter Two came out. Unfortunately, I didn't realise just how fricking huge the book is and am still only about a third of the way through the damn thing. I even thought about getting the audiobook instead, but apparently that is also lengthy, with a running time of just under forty-five (yes, 45!) hours. It might be a while before this gets reviewed, but I'm liking it so far.
