The TV series?

Hear of, seen a few stills from it and one of my players saw an episode apparently. From their description it doesnt sound like the character I knew way back. But could say that of any of these DC shows characters. Was nice to see Vigilante though.

The intro dance credits and song are pretty awesome.

Does John Cena praise the Chinese Communist Party?

Not in the song/dance intro. Maybe elsewhere.

Omega:
My friend described Peacemaker as "very Super Patriot" which does not seem right at all for the character?

Shame when artists aren't suppressed like that. Hopefully DC will give him the chance to body slam the Dalai Lama in a future episode!

Oh joy. Critical Role has their own adult D&D animated series now...

Looks good. But the trailer did not impress.

Having missed it in theaters, I preordered the blu-ray of Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

I'm experiencing some buyers' regret.

It's not a bad movie, certainly heaps better than the 2016 movie. But it feels incomplete, like they sketched out a quirky supernatural thriller without a whole lot of comedy, or even a fully fleshed-out supporting cast, hit send and called it a day.

It's not the cynical cash grab the 2016 movie was, but it's definitely a subset of a Ghostbusters movie. Egon's granddaughter is pretty well fleshed-out, if a bit too precocious, but most of the rest of the characters basically exist to feed her lines. Finn Wolfhard's character exists solely to get Ecto-1 running, and spends the rest of the movie going through the barest outlines of a romantic subplot. And when there's busting to do, they kinda write him out of it. It's like the only reason he's there is that his feet can reach the pedals on Ecto-1.

I really wish they'd done another pass on the script to flesh it out some more.

It's worth a watch if you can get it for free, but don't buy the movie.
