Making_Fun_The_Story_Of_FunkoBack in January (2018) learned there was a documentary about Funko which was been taking around to some film festivals.  If you have every stopped by this blog you might know I am a fan of Funko and own some of their products.  After seen the trailer for this documentary got thinking when I will the rest of the world get to see it.  Was hoping at some point it would be put on their YouTube channel.  Well the other day the got some good news.  The next best thing the doc will be coming to Netflix.  The even better part is it will be out worldwide May 24, 2018.  So I will be watching that on the weekend.  They all so put out a new trailer to announced it is coming to Netflix.  You can see that > here or below.


The Rain

The_RainThere is an interesting coming to Netflix in May (2018).  It is called The Rain.  The synopsis, Six years after a brutal virus wipes out most of Scandinavia’s population, two siblings join a band of young survivors seeking safety — and answers.  There have been many movies and video games that have kind of this type of story going in a post-apocalyptic world.  This ones does look really good.  If you watch the trailer > here or below it is in Danish.  Not user if Netflix will have an English dubbed version or option to do so.  Hope they do.  Don’t mind some subtitles but for a while show might be a bit much.

The Toys That Made Us Part Two

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on May 1, 2018 by getbent57

Back in December (2017) the Netflix documentary series, The Toys That Made Us, had four episodes out.  During the opening credits they say it is an eight part series.  Ever since watching the first four have wondered when the rest would be on Netflix.  Have read today (as I am typing this April 17, 2018) that the last four episodes will be out May 25, 2018.  If you never heard of this.  It is series that covers very famous toys.  Each episode covers one toy.  The next four will cover, Lego, Transformers, Hello Kitty and Star Trek.  Have all so read that the series has been renewed for a second season.  Which is awesome news.  This series is well worth your time checking out.  Looking forward to see theses new episodes.

Assassin’s Creed Movie Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on March 24, 2018 by getbent57

Am a bit late getting around to reviewing Assassin’s Creed movie.  If you have every stopped by this blog you will know I am a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed games.  When I first heard about his movie back in 2016 and see the trailer.  It looked interesting but wasn’t too sure how good it would be.  Then when it was out.  Heard lots of bad things about it.  So chucked it up to being another bad video game movie.

The movie has been on Netflix for a while now and has been on my list to watch.  So the other night gave it a watch.  Well I enjoyed this movie.  It was really well put together.  They did an awesome job of working in story elements and stuff from the games with out being on the nose with it.  Sure the over all story was simplified.  It is an action movie after all.  Speaking of action.  Those scenes were awesome.  The ending as a bit predictable.  Leaving it out for a sequel.  Would like to see another one.  But I don’t think it did do well at the box office.  If you have Netflix it well worth your time.

The Last Kingdom Book

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2018 by getbent57

The_Last_Kingdom_BookHave started to read the book The Last Kingdom.  This is the first book in a series.  Which I just found out has ten books so far.  Got this one and the second book, The Pale Horseman, in a box set.  Knew nothing about these books.  According to Wikipedia this series is all so known as The Saxon Stories.  These are written by Bernard Cornwell.  All so found out the first four were turned into a TV show.   Which is now on Netflix called The Last Kingdom.

So far an really enjoying this book.  From what I read so far.  It tells the story of a young boy who heads into battle with his father a lord of castle.  His father is killed and he is kidnapped by the raiders, Danes.  They are something like Vikings.  At first I wasn’t to sure if I would like this book because some of the names I have know idea how to say them. Making it hard to follow.  Turns out it is easy to read and really interesting.  When I get though these two books will have to seek out the others.

I know.  I am very late to the party.   Have watched the first three episodes of Netflix Marvel’s show Jessica Jones.  Had some time off.  So made some time to watch more of Netflix.  Really enjoyed the Daredevil show.  So I know I would be interested in this one.  Well, was hooked right away. Can’t wait to see the rest of them.  This is an amazing show.  I can tell just after the first episode.  Have read the the second season will be out some time in March 2018.  Will be adding that to my list as well.

The_Toys_That_Made_UsHad some time off.  So decided to see what was new on Netflix.  One show caught my eye, The Toys That Made Us.  This is a eight part documentary series about very famous toys.  So far the first four episodes out.  Not sure then the next four will be out.  But guessing pretty soon.  Have watched the four episodes.  Enjoyed each one.  They interview most of the people how created the toys as well a how it all came to be. While working in some comedy as well.  It works really well.  It keep me invested.  The episodes talked about, Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man and G.I. Joe.  They are all really fun an interesting to watch.  Looking forward to see what the next ones will be.
