So we’ve been pretty excited about ABC’s new miniseries, Agent Carter, for a while. Even though there wasn’t much information on it, we kept seeing delightful tweets about what Hayley Atwell was getting up to on set. Soon it could reasonably be inferred that basically, Peggy Carter was going to have a lot of scenes where she kicked someone’s ass. And now, we’ve finally gotten our first look at the trailer for Agent Carter.
It’s been nearly three weeks since the Age of Ultron trailer was leaked to the public. I was on vacation at the time, so, while I did get to watch first the grainy leak footage (and then the HD damage-control release from Marvel) in my condo while jumping up and down with excitement, I haven’t had a chance to write about it yet. I’m here to remedy that right now.
It’s taking everything I have to keep myself from writing about Dragon Age: Inquisition (which comes out on the 18th, by the way) for every article this month. But if something catches my eye enough to drag me from my DA trance, during release month no less, you can bet that it’s something amazing. What developer Volition has put on the table is nothing short of that. You might even call this DLC… sinfully good.
So now that it’s Halloween, even though horror is not really my thing, I’ve stumbled upon the trailer for Angel of Death, which is the sequel to The Woman in Black. I might not be the biggest horror fan out there, but this movie looks so bad, it’ll probably be good. Lord knows that I laughed my ass off during the first movie.
I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked that The Woman in Black is actually getting a sequel, since a lot of horror movies get one, but at the same time, I wasn’t really expecting it. The original movie didn’t do that well—only a 66% on Rotten Tomatoes. And one of the few things I did like about it—a lack of gore—is actually one of its more heavy criticisms. As such, I wouldn’t be surprised if Angel of Death ended up being bloodier altogether.
The trailers for Big Hero 6 have been floating around for a while, and I kept seeing it on friends’ Facebook feeds and my Tumblr dashboard. So I finally decided to watch it and see what all the hype was about. Imagine my surprise when I found out about the Asian protagonist—and a lot of racism underneath.
I wanted to offer all of you a horror movie today. As one of the horror film lovers on this site—though my tastes tend towards the eye-roll worthy, admittedly—I feel that is it my duty to do so, especially in the spirit of this month. However, I’ve come to a realization that outside of a highly interesting-looking documentary on Quidditch (the sport of Harry Potter fame re-crafted for Muggle players) and a horror film about a Ouija board summoning that looks hilariously awful (like, Paranormal Activity 4 awful), there are just no movies I’d bother recommending. As such, I’m going to rec a film that’s already had its day in the sun but we’ve unfortunately missed talking about until now.
Arrow comes back tomorrow, so I will be the first to admit I’m cutting this trailer review a little close. That said, I’ll also be the first to admit that I’m psyched as hell for Arrow Season 3.
