Hello once again from the Austin Film Festival. Despite all my festival goings, it is the last day of the month so that means it’s time to reflect on all that I’ve consumed over the past 31 days. Let’s go!
Turn – Enjoyable, not perfect, but damn if Captain Simcoe isn’t an awesome villain.
The Player – I really enjoy this action show so I’m bummed that their order just got cut.
The Jim Gaffigan Show – Really fun but now I have a crazy crush on Ashley Williams.
Sleep Hollow – I’m not a fan of the new co-stars but it feels like the show is getting back on track.
The Last Man on Earth – Goddamn I wish I had created this show.
Black Mirror – Have only seen the first episode. Yeah, THAT episode.
The Martian – Really good. A solid adventure flick.
Every Open Eye by CHVRCHES – This sophomore album is a goddamn winner.
1989 by Ryan Adams – Don’t judge!
Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins – Want one good reason to hate this book? A character says the title of the book as a line of dialog not once, not twice but three f**king times! Ugh. Every page made me wish I was buried in a better piece of apocalypse fiction, like Fallout 4.
Tomb Raider – A great comic, and proof that sometimes reboots are the right thing to do.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four
DC Comics: Bombshells
The Life After – Not quite the suicide comic I was looking for… but I can’t stop reading.
Lost at Sea
Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman
Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life – I knew these comics were good but I had no idea I’d fall head over heels for them. They’re the absolute perfect blend of indie rock, young adult and tournament fighting.
Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Baldur’s Gate
G.I. Joe: Cobra – I know what you’re thinking but trust me on this one. The stories centered around second and third tier characters are among the best action/espionage comics you’ll read.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
G.I. Joe Cobra Special
Star Wars Battlefront (beta) – This is the game you want to play. The beta was awesome and this commercial gets me every damn time.
Want more ? How about awesome aerial combat where you get to pilot… just take a look.
Want more than that? How about a battle on Hoth.
And that’s a wrap. Happy Halloween!
(miss ya Wes)
