The first one is the newest track from Man With A Mission, My Hero was posted 12 days ago and has over a million views. The second track is 2015s Raise Your Flag, the song that first made me sit up and realize this band had some serious stories to tell the world, and not just a lot of first class music.
This is the second DC Universe movie in a row I am excited about (at least I don’t think there has been another since Wonder Woman), I have been looking forward to Justice League for over a year.
There are some great films playing this weekend, but almost all of them seem to be at film festivals. The latest iteration of Murder on the Orient Express looks like the best option to me, but while the book was a masterpiece and the cast is world class, it really isn’t science fiction or even fantasy. I think I will probably spend the weekend binging on season two of Dirk Gently and other equally silly things like the latest Red Dwarf Season 12 episode.
I missed seeing it in the theaters, and it hasn’t been streaming anywhere that I could find (not even on Funimation who have the North American rights), but now it is finally available on Disc: Your Name. Featuring music by the Radwimps, it pretty much broke every theater record in Japan, and won multiple awards. Another winner this week is Westworld: The Complete First Season, an excellent reboot of the original franchise. You can stream at least some of the episodes at that SYFY link, if you haven’t seen it yet you should check it out. Project Itoh: Genocidal Organ is the latest Sci-Fi story in the Project Itoh series, dealing with some fairly current topics. Taken together, the series of feature films covers about 150 years of a parallel history, like yet unlike our own. Finally there is Trollhunters: Season One, with Season 2 available to stream beginning on December 15th.
Thor: Ragnarok is the film I will be seeing this weekend; how about you?
On first glance I couldn’t spot any genre movies this week, but it turns out there is one that just might fit the bill. Suburbicon is surreal enough that I think it fits comfortably in the Fantasy genre, so it gets my vote this time around.
