Last night I took the time to watch Spaceman (2024) with Adam Sandler, this type of movies where the main character spend most of his time on a close environment are not easy to pull off, very recent the was the movie I.S.S that was close to a 5/10 but it had a few good scenes and it was on a similar environment, close space station without any kind of exploration mission.

Spaceman (2024) is a movie about a Czech Republic Cosmonaut Jakub Prochazka, who is on a mission to take samples of a purple cloud close to Jupiter while his wife Lenka waits for him on Earth with their next to born son. During this trip that would be a more than one year mission alone in space, Jakub had an encounter with a what looks to be an Alien that look like a Spider, as Jakub he is a traveler but got deeply attracted by Jakub loneliness.

I really like the vintage vibe from the movie although is very common for things to look very simple and square on space stations in case something needs to be fix there is as less complex mechanisms or parts. At the time the movie starts Jakub is over six months traveling alone, the mission was design to be a solo mission, all he had to do was to collect dust sample from the purple clouds next to Jupiter, to stay sane while been alone all this time sleeping is key factor but his toilet that long tube he is next too has been going on and making loud noise at night so its been close impossible for him to sleep.

For me this was the first fucked up moment and probably what attracted the Alien, during a conference call with Earth a girl was giving the opportunity to ask Jakub if he feels sad to be so far away? he must be the loneliest man in the world!. Once you continue watching the movie and you think about this moment again if Jakub was honest at that moment he would probably start crying at worst because been away from his wife for so long was killing him but he put up a fake smile and answer was polite as he could.

Jakub wife Lenka at Earth has recorded a terrible video, she is leaving him while he is millions of miles away on a solo mission, she is pregnant for a second time and its a coincidence that this is the second time he is not there for her, the space program director refuse to give him this message and the hunt to locate Lenka starts so she can talk to Jakub and keep him sane because right now it doesn’t look too good for him.

Besides Jakub and Lenka the other character that had an important role was Peter by Kanul Nayyar, I really like this guy from Big Bang Theory TV Series, this time on the opposite side of the spectrum been a serious tech at control center who was in charge of keeping Jakub in check, very awkward character as a fact the entire movie has this Soviet Union style from the 80s so it was not just Peter, you wont see people smiling on this movie that much except for Jakub happy memories with Lenka.

As I mention before this Alien Spider like has been intrigue my Jakub loneliness feeling and he just show up out of no where, there was no portal or ship nothing just whats up here I’m at Jakub bathroom from all of the other room on the ship the one that torments Jakub the most, to make things simple Jakub gave the alien the name of Hanus since he was nameless. The moment they start interacting Hanus starts to rewind Jakub’s memory, he gets into his head and start looking for his memories with Lenka trying to understand why he was so lonely, if it was him who decided it or it was a punishment or he was that stupid that he could not see the damage he was doing to himself and others around him like his wife, deeply Jakub was lonely and sad before he got into the mission thats the style of life he choose and this is what Hanus is trying to understand.

Hanus kept digging on Jakub’s memory trying too look for a logical answer because everything around Jakub felt like a punishment, been on that ship felt like a punishment for Hanus, he could sense more than was just on the surface of Jakub something not even Jakub himself could understand or see, if he had he would not left his wife back on Earth pregnant after she lost their first baby under the same kind of circumstances, he was not there for her and the excuse was always work, Hanus got into a few memories of Lenka trying to live a life full of happiness next to Jakub pushing him to do things he would enjoy, trying to know more about him but from Jakub’s side of the table the sentiment at the moment was not mutual, he did love her but was not aware through the years how his relationship with his wife was deteriorating because of how either obsess or blind he was for been always fixed into his work.

I get this is not a movie for most people, they might jump in thinking there will be planet exploration, fight with the alien or something totally different, I did too but the moment Hanus says “Your loneliness intrigue me” I was hooked because this alien knows nothing about human behavior and is trying to understand humans farther than just learning our ways and language, he wants to understand our existence specially how a human like Jakub can live been sad and lonely all the time like he currently was, when Hanus starts to rewind all Jakub’s memory with Lenka then he realize the problem was him all the time, not that its part of human behavior, it was him at his core that was selfish and shortsighted, he was only interested in things that keep him going but never into the things that kept Lenka going, she was pregnant for the second time but he never saw farther than she just been pregnant but how the mission would affect her specially after she lost their first baby, the message of this movie is very simple although what I like about it is the scenario and how this alien figure is so philosophical basically saying this is not normal, this is not ok, what is wrong with this guy? then he gets it and even gets mad at Jakub leaving him alone for some time. After that then comes the last part that had some space exploration and even an Interstellar type scene with Jakub going into a cloud that had effects like a black hole. It is very hard to recommend this movie unless you like movies that analyze human behavior or fucks with the character mind.

Its only episode one and a lot of things going on although not much since everything surrounds a single mystery, ever since I saw the trailer this TV series got my attention since it has to be related with some sort of alien tech although I was not sure if its also time travel related or both??

I feel the story is a little bit crowded to start with a lot of characters, there is the main character so far Ye whose daughter killed herself after probably watching a count down same as other scientist who have been going through the same trauma but in the case of Ye she is a survivor from a revolution in China during the 60’s, a revolution mainly about science, I’m still not clear what were their demands but their leaders were after something big, trying to communicate with something out there, do they mean space? or future?

A group of friends, all scientist suffer the death of her teacher Vera, most of their projects are been shut down due to lack of results a common denominator across many Particle Colliders around the world and now one of the them is starting to see the count down everywhere she goes, the question is how, when and why would it stop or what it means?? certain only sci-fi events happen like the universe wink at you, like the starts start to Morse code all at once.

Revolution during the 60’s going on in China, looks like a witch hunt, they hunting scientist but I’m not sure if its because they teaching or believe in certain not proven or wrong theories? Ye Wenjie father is on stage accuse, he refuse to accept there is space for God in any of the theories he teach so is this revolution about God? come one people make up your mind.

It seems that this was the young ones only, the puppets, Ye after loosing her father got recruited by higher ranks because they needed scientist like her with lot of talent to help with their communications experiments, makes me think then why kill her father? well probably he was at the wrong place at wrong time, a bit confusing this part of the story and this is not good for viewers.

Benedict Wong from Avengers show up this time as an investigator, his name Da Shi; working on a case where different scientist kill themself for unknown reasons, this last one had high possibilities of getting the novel prize on physics, Vera experiment also discover something they could not explain so is there something or someone killing all this scientist on purpose before they get to close to a big discovery?? this is the part that starts to get interesting, there is a connection between all this dead scientist.

Continue with introducing characters, Saul was working with Vera on her experiment and its the last day the Collider will remain functional after they were shut down because their experiment was going no where, Saul is very irrelevant at this point but he still alive that’s what matters because what if this is a type of The Ring effect where everyone one of them start to see the count down at some point? Different than others Vera look very calm and cool before she kill herself jumping into a pool of some sort of fluid, probably deadly, her last question to Saul was about God.

Next in the group of friends, Jin and Auggie; at a bar having a drink were notified by Saul about Vera’s death, they were discussing the anomalies on Vera’s experiment and how physics and science over all have got to a dead end but I think they were talking about physics mostly, there are other parts of science probably making discoveries and working on things, it was at this moment that Auggie start to see the count down, it started as a Matrix glitch effect until numbers came up in front of her eyes making what ever was behind them look blurry.

After Vera’s funeral all five friends gather to have a drink and talk about how weird all this was. John Bradley play the role of Jack Rooney but he is not a scientist, I like he is not playing a nerdy shy role as he usually does, this time a kind of ass hole all about money guy, as usual he is very funny. Auggie has been feeling off after constantly watching this count down even visit a Neurologist to figure out whats wrong with her, only Jin knows at the moment, that night she step out of the bar for a smoke and a young women offers to light up her cigarette with a very devilish smile on her, she tells Auggie she knows about the countdown and the only way to stop it is if she shuts down her lab, Auggie has a nano tech lab; its like some one is trying to stop different experiments going on that could probably lead to new tech? or the end of the world? again this is the part, the idea, that is interesting.

Jin visits Vera’s mother, Ye; after a few days to help her and get some clues of why Vera would kill herself and Ye mention everything look normal with her, nothing strange, nothing out of the ordinary except a video game that Vera would play none stop, thats when Ye gave Jin the headset, looks like a piece of metal no lenses or headphones. I wonder why Ye been a scientist too didn’t put it on after Vera die, trying to figure out the death of her daughter?

It seems critics and audience are in sync about this series, solid 7/10 on IMDB and RTT, I agree on this after watching the first episode I would say solid 7.5 for me, the mystery about why this scientist can see this countdown and why the women who talk to Auggie ask her to shut down her lab only tells me that either she will make a big discovery or could turn out very bad for humans, Aliens in movies usually want to help humans from eradicating themself although its not clear who is making this scientist watch this count down. The headset I want to see more of that and find out if it is really a game or a simulation of whats going to happen, the story about the China revolution not so interesting to me unless this series is about time travel and they have discover a way to send messages through time, lots of questions, I’ll definitely continue to watch this series but on the traditional one episode a week since I don’t like watching them all at once Netflix release style.

Tv Series I’ll be watching on January 2024

After a never ending December Holidays as usual I’m behind a lot of content but I’m always looking forward since all it takes is a weekend night to put on the VR headset and burn through a few hours of TV series to catch up, there are a few series that will air on January that are worth watch in my opinion, there is a bit of everything from action, comedy, comic related, even some witchcraft. Here some of the TV series I will be watching on January, 2024 is set to be a great year for content after the Hollywood Strike is over now with writers, actors and studios in full force to pump out the backlog of productions and those that were patiently waiting their turn.
Some of the series I mention are on their first trailer so there will be more scenes and I will keep covering them and add more details to them on my profile at Micro Blogging platforms Inleo and Ecency.

The Brothers Sun

I think Netflix have made a name when it comes to bring great Asian actors to expand their work across the globe,
The Brothers Sun is a comedy about a Taipei Gangster family, Charles Sun and his mother Eileen Sun have to deal with others Gangsters who are now trying to take power back after his father was shoot without anyone knowing the truth behind it, in the middle is his little brother Bruce who lives in L.A and has no clue about his family business, Charles and his mother are though but Bruce is nothing like them and wants nothing to do with this life style, just by looking at the trailer you can tell there will be a lot of action, blood and laughs, this is another one I plan to watch, probably not on January as I’m behind schedule most of the time.

Sanctuary (2024)

Sanctuary a series based on a novel written by V.V. James from 2020, to start with I know nothing about the novel but when I saw the trailer immediately remember “A Discovery of Witches” a great series were we had Elaine Cassidy who in this case play the role of Sarah Fenn is the main character. Sanctuary is a story based in the UK where witchcraft is real and is a common thing among residents but everything goes south when there is an accident and the main character Sarah Fenn becomes the main suspect about the death of a teenager who died on this accident, murder by witchcraft, probably dark magic and people start to go against it, the series develops in modern times, so I expect this series to look more “unreal” or say less traditional witch TV series like “Salem” or the very well “A Discovery of Witches”. Going through some comments online this is the very thing some fans of the Novel are already talking about that it goes far from the original story and it’s a common problem with book adaptations so if you have read the novel don’t expect it to be exactly the same word by word but I do think can be entertaining if you are a fan of witchcraft series.

ECHO (2024)

This is a series I have been expecting from some time since I heard about it, not necessarily because of ECHO herself but Dare Devil but know I got a bundle pack, got ECHO whose power is to copy any action or skill she sees, she is deaf and have a prosthetic leg; Kingpin and Dare Devil. ECHO character make it first appearance on Hawkeye the series that I haven’t watch reason I was not aware of it, after a rough season in New York she now comes back home and try to reconnect with her community and family but there is an entire war going on, this involves the ruthless Kingpin played by Wilson Fisk and you CAN NOT have the Kingpin without Dare Devil, by Matt Murdock; same as the Netflix series, the main reason I found out about ECHO, I have been waiting for a Dare Devil series after the Netflix version, this mini series is based on the comic although I do not know how close it is, five episodes only so it is very short and I fear the story gets crunch and feels too short for what it should be, PLEAS GOD this don’t be another “Secret Invasion”.

Ted (2024)

A six episode Mini Series, comedy; by Seth MacFarlane a guy behind exits like Family Guy, American Dad just to mention two great animated comedy, its true that this will be streaming on Peacock and yes they are not known for putting out AAA content but its entertaining most of the time so this is a watch in my opinion as long as the keep the bear personality from the movies, I know its the same voice but what makes me laugh about the 2012 and 2015 movies was its personality, this time the story goes way back to its original owner John Bennett who wished his teddy bear friend Ted life, John Bennett character is been played by Max Burkholder who also work with Seth on Family Guy and American Dad so I think this could be a little gem in the rough that will make you laugh some.

Masters of the Air (2024)

I’m in that group of people who are suckers for anything war related TV series, not that I promote war but because of all the drama and action it provides, its entertainment, comes Masters of The Air; I think this is going to be a banger, first of most of the series that Apple+ puts out are great and on top you got Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks producing a World War II drama series based on the book by Donald L. Miller, a series about the brave men of the 100th Bomb Squad during the Nazi War. Last war theme TV series I watch was “A Small Light” and I’m still pending on “All The Light We Cannot See”, two great productions that brought the drama of going through a war a civilian but this time we wont only have that perspective but from thousands of feet above on a bomber, back in the day there was not that much tech, things were very rough and different. The Cast in my opinion is OK, we got familiar faces, when I say OK I mean they are not ultra well known but have seen them in other movies and series, Austin Butler, Callum Turner, Anthony Boyle, Nate Mann, Barry Keoghan.
This series is dropping two episodes on January 26, followed by a weekly release schedule until March 15, 2024, meaning this will make Friday nights special.

I think this will be enough to keep me entertain on those days where I have spare time to burn some hours, some others will be a must, I can see that already with Masters of the Air, ECHO and The Brothers Sun, I’m glad there is a mix on how the episodes will drop since it’s not my style of watching the entire series in two days, I’m a bit old school in that aspect back from the days we watch TV series from cable tv one episode per week but 2024 is set to be a great year in my opinion for entertaining and for crypto, most of my content is on the Hive blockchain using platforms like Inleo and Ecency, both great in their own way were you can actually own your data and can not be shut down so if you see this post on my blog feel free to contact and jump in to real Web3 platforms.

The Fall of the House of Usher: A Midnight Dreary - Episode 01 – RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

On my short time on Hive I have written about a couple of different series always trying to narrate what went down on certain episode but there are a few of them or actually different format content that is kinda hard for me to build up on my post like Basketball, Futbol, Comedy and now a narrated story on third person that is Fall of the House of Usher, the main reason because it takes time, when the story is narrated details are everywhere that create an image on your brain of how people react in at the scene, for example there is one part when Roderick said “Yes Im putting a bounty on your head” I can easy see his daughters with an amaze expression like WTF while his son Perry laugh at the rest, then that makes me react in the same way when writing my post, try to bring as much details possible with how I put up all this images trying to make sense at the same time giving my opinion on text, basically is a combination of text and images trying to tell a story.

The Fall of The House of Usher to me seem like a very cool “horror” story, not necessary horror like possession and demons but there will be a lot of killing, probably blood on a lot of scenes, there is revenge, a combination of all kind of evil and bad feelings everything happening within a family that is mainly hold together by a bank account, Roderick mention this when talking to his wife “….the only thing that they fear the worst is been out of his will” referring to his sons and daughters who are always close to him, including their loves one, if you look from the outside anyone would think they are such a perfect family always together but the truth is that the core was only him and his sister Madeline, I get to this conclusion based on episode one only, probably with the progress of the series my opinion changes, after all money is the only thing that can buy souls.

Episode one was very entertaining and at times it will spook you, keep you on the edge of your seat for a few minutes, does a good job at presenting the main topic of the series, it works with time lines going back and forward, already telling you whats coming up that is the death of all his sons and daughters, who have to do with their death and that even after many years his “dead” mother is still lurking around, I would agree with IMDB rating and give it a 7.5/10

Episode one starts with Roderick and his granddaughter next to him, at church; three of his child have died, they are now six of them dead, church is empty, I would assume because he wanted like that, his family is so prestigious if people are let in it would be a total shit show taking pictures, asking questions, people protesting, the Usher family was at a stupid level rich so there will always be those who hate them just for having that amount of money without much reason.

Roderick keeps having this hallucinations of a women with a mask and his dead child, they all had dramatic deaths, he even see them at the church all butcher up from the different ways they die but only him can see them.

Roderick is on the pharmaceutic business, he is at the rock star level, press is always after him and probably why the church was empty but there is one man who only wants one picture and that’s Roderick behind bars, Carl Lumbly does Attorney Dupin who has been after Roderick and his entire family for a very long time without luck, they are all always shield, bulletproof from everything in life, that’s how much money they have that no body mess with them besides Roderick seems to be the type of guy who knows how to use and control power and nut just money.

The creepy story begins when Roderick invites Auguste, Augi; to his first house where he use to live with his mother and sister, when Roderick got enough money he not only bought the house but the entire neighborhood and kept it the same, let it rood because he did went through hell and back on that place many times because of many reasons so the place work as a reminder that if he went through that he can overcome anything, that is my opinion after Roderick tell Auguste why he kept the place.

Roderick is ready to give up, accept all charges and go to jail but it seems he wants either Auguste to help him solve a mystery or help him escape a problem, creepy his dead mother shows up behind Roderick, can’t see it on the screenshot but she is there, this is when the horror side of the story kicks in.

We start with Roderick hell as a kid, live with his mother, Eliza; who didn’t believe in doctors or medicine, at a point she got very sick, all her life work for a prick William Longfellow, CEO of Fortunato Pharmaceuticals, she devoted her life to that job but the moment that needed help and he was their only option William treat them like shit, I guess Eliza had a grudge against William probably for all those years, she always told her kids to stay away from him at all cost, she must had some strong reason.

Elize dies for unknown reason, seem stupid but I guess its part of the story to make the audience feel sorry for Roderick and his sister Madeline, they had to build casket out of old wood and bury his mother in the backyard like a dog, big WTF; they had no family? no money? it was the 50’s but come on, still I get the writer, they trying to build that feeling of sorrow for the kids.

Remember how I mention Auguste was behind Roderick, his business and family, well during a trial he mention, no body confirm if this was true or not; that after many years of been behind his case he finally got a member of the family to confess and will serve as witness against the Usher family, this fire up Roderick against his children badly.

One episode one they dont go into deep details of what each of his children does, few details but not their entire life

  • Frederick
  • Perry
  • Camille
  • Victorine
  • Leo
  • Tamerlane

They had different personalities, some care vary much about the family money, few don’t, Frederick been the oldest male born waiting for his father to die to keep everything, Perry seem to want a life style of fame to the extreme, still there was three things that unite them, their father who rule the family with iron fist, aunt Madeline who is just as ruthless or worst than Roderick when it comes down to business and money.

For now as I mention not many details about his child but after the trial Roderick calls for a family meeting, he got all of his family members to sign an very nasty NDA that will keep the out of the family for good if they were proof to be the mole within the family, he was straight and didn’t loose any time to put a bounty on their head, $50 million all cash, no taxes, no bullshit for the one who brings the mole, they already know its one of them its a matter of time and greed to find out who is it.

While the episode keeps very clear the money situation at the family and that all six children will have a nasty death it still a mystery of how this all happen, the women with the creepy smile, Verna; a women who they Roderick and Madeline met on 1979 new years eve at a local bar, she use phrases like “To 1979. May it rest in peace” or “the future is coming” like she knew something was about to happen while she kept them both at the bar where they were suppose to stay just for a short time, she seem to be the one appearing to Roderick at church, there is also a Joker who shows up inside his car when he was leaving church and then falls backwards, bleeding from his knows telling Madeline its time, but time for what? is Verna really who kill his child? is his mother dead but still wondering around their old house?

The Fall of the House of Usher: A Midnight Dreary - Episode 01 – RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Movies has turn smiles into something creepy and evil, with proper makeup their eyes pop and creates this image of people been posses by something looking very evil, like a new thing from horror movies, I feel like that is a key element to this series, we will see Verna smiling a lot, episode one does a great job of giving you just enough information about how the family members die and probably who did it without too much so you can figure out everything from the start, gives the beginning and the end but not the details and that’s what the others episodes will be base on, stretching the story enough, clever way to create a tv series narrated by the main character Roderick, this is an eight episode mini series there has been some time since I saw a horror base tv series so I’m really going to enjoy it although covering all the details on a post can be a little tedious because it makes a long post, longer than usual.

Tv Series and Movies I’ll be watching on December 2023 – www.skiptvads.blog

Today I was intending to start my recap about The Fall of the House of Usher but I notice today is December the 1st, 2023 is almost over just 30 days left so I decided to check whats for December and there are a few TV Series that I got my eye on, two of them brand new and other two on their second season that’s Reacher and Sweet Home, on top there are a few Movies that I think will do great, one of them Godzilla Minus One already premier in Japan and was a total home run, then we got Aquaman 2 probably the last time we will see Jason Mamoa doing Aquaman as he will probably start doing Lobo, that’s another story for another time; then American Fiction a total blast of a comedy considering the trailer and Rebel Moon first part.

The moment I finish the cover of this post I realize this is going to be a fucking lone one, I took in consideration a few things like providing more info like:

  • Release date
  • Platform
  • Trailer

Things that people usually ask for when you mention titles on micro blogging platforms like Waves or Inleo, besides the usual but I was already committed so there was no turn around, I also added Movies this time that I would love to start doing Movies reviews but the problem with me and Movies is that I’m easy to loose as a viewer when it comes to Movies, I get disappointed really fast before even watching it for example Napoleon, I haven’t watch it and considering reviews and comments online I might skip it when it comes online, last month there were two banger I mention that was Monarch and For All Mankind that I already starting doing recaps, I’m a bit behind as always but on this two I will do a full review of the season when I’m done with recaps, in case anyone ask my blog is not about how fast I put out new content but quality, trying to narrate a story with images, my opinion and probably bring awareness of a good entertainment TV Series or Movie for anyone who haven’t watch it, so here I’m about to write a probably long post.

Tv Series
Sweet Home: Season 02
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11612120/
Air: December, 1, 2023
Platform: Netflix
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WJweFedauI

I can’t give much of an opinion about Sweet Home since I haven’t watch season one, actually this could be one of the last seasons I will start doing recaps about it because of that, I have to first watch season one but based on the trailer there are a few things that caught my attention, the first is how the main character name Hyun, only shows a single wing on the entire trailer like he doesn’t know how to fully transform himself, to me it look like a story of monsters invasion but they have learn how to shape shift into humans, evolving and probably try to be humans, like they are learning how to control themself and experimenting how to behave like humans to the point that they like it but still can not fully control themself at times while others just keep ripping them off, at the same time humans, military most; can’t trust anyone not even their own people because of this shape shifting monsters between them, I don’t speak Korean so been on a language that I don’t know its hard to watch sometimes because you have to pause/play/rewind to keep track of things, but looks very interesting and its on Netflix a very common platform for viewers to have.

Tv Series
Culprits: Season 01
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14531774/
Air: November, 8, 2023
Platform: Hulu, Disney
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj676s3BS04

Total new series for me, I got a bit confuse on this one because some places say that it started on November 8 and others on December 8. Culprits, from the trailer this could be a very short series, its eight episodes and the reason I say short series is because they would have to really develop the story after they main event, there is Joe and Dianne who rob a vault, not sure where its from but during the process something goes wrong and a guard gets hit, Joe doesn’t look like a bad guy so he takes the guard with him probably to take her to a hospital but at the same time he is running away. Joe looks like an opportunistic guy, a man who is not afraid of taking risks but this lead to wanting progress to happen from thin air and grow fast, this usually comes with a very high price when things go south and after his last job now he got some heat behind him, some people are coming for him, certainly in revenge for a job he did, his partner at home has no idea of this double life he is in but the pressure is starting to become too much that he probably putting everyone around him in danger.

Tv Series
Reacher: Season 02
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9288030/
Air: December, 15, 2023
Platform: Amazon
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC-rRhQcnlI

After watching season one I know this is going to be a total banger of a season, its very similar to the movie from 2012 Jack Reacher, but not sure if its exactly the same story from what I can tell it is, an investigator with military background, the guy is a total bad ass and keeps fucking up people on every episode, protects the innocent at all cost at the same time is very smart and “technical” about how he approach things to figure out who is guilty or not, this is a AAA series that probably not many people know about with a 8.1/10 on IMDB, looks like it has been a long time since I watch season one, only a year ago.

Tv Series
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Season 01
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12324366/
Air: December, 20, 2023
Platform: Disney
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHb7au6Gmls

From the trailer Percy Jackson and the Olypians is exactly what I thought it would be, they have taken the movies into a tv series, Disney got this character very dominated with a few movies already but to be honest their rating is a bit low, this is a series I would try to watch with my kids, probably technology has advance enough so special effects can be at the same level that the story demands, this is a story based on mythology, Percy Jackson a half blood between Sons of Gods trying to learn their ways been push out but he is the real deal, this series is a 50/50 but I would still give it a try, those scenes with lots of special effects must be really cool on VR.

Movie
Godzilla Minus One
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt23289160/
Theaters: December 1, 2023
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvSrHIX5a-0

Godzilla Minus One is a Movie I have mention many times before on my Hive account, many call it a piece of art, its very different from other Godzilla movies I mean from Hollywood Godzilla Movies, main on Godzilla shape, the story around is the classic Godzilla who attack Japan and humans try to stop it without much luck at first, there is nothing really special about the story itself, the concept of Godzilla, from what I can tell after watching all the trailers available, I hope this is not a movie that gave it all on the trailer, it doesnt look that way neither and it has high reviews already from its premier in Japan, 8.4/10 on IMDB.

Movie
American Fiction
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt23561236/
Theaters: December 15, 2023
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0MbLCpYJPA

I’m not really into comedies but since the moment I saw American Fiction first trailer I knew I have to watch it, its the hilarious story of Thelonious ‘Monk’ Ellison a writer who has self respect and try to make a honest life out of his books, books that make sense and he puts hard work on them but they are not popular until he watch another author basically trolling people with her book, bringing them the street life on her own words and that is the moment when he had enough and starts doing the same although money and fame probably got the best of him, starting to create a false character that others love to the extreme of making too big of a lie that puts his life in danger, then remembering the good old times when he was a no body but had a peaceful life.

Movie
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9663764/
Theaters: December 22, 2023
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV3bqvOHRQo

I think the first movie of Aquaman the first movie is undervalue based on online ratings, its a very entertain movie, Jason Mamoa did a great job representing Aquaman and the now days hated Amber Heard, after her trial with Johnny Depp; as Mera she look so fine and sexy, what I like about Aquaman is how they show all the other realms, something that other movies like Quantumania could have done exploiting all this different race, characters, living things and Aquaman does that very well, the two hours of movie does feel like a long time because they kept traveling from one place to another, on top there were different side stories all connected at the end to Aquaman, The Lost Kingdom is a continuation to that story even brings back Patrick Wilson as Aquaman half blood brother.

Movie
Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child of Fire
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14998742/
Stream: December 22, 2023
Platform: Netflix
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhr3MzT6exg

Rebel Moon is a story I know nothing about just what I have seen and read about the trailer, the story of Kora, who landed on a far a way Moon and started a new life as a farmer, she is a very skill fighter and first treated as just a worker now becomes the only hope to the farmers to fight back after they were caught selling crops to the wrong side of a war they can’t fight, Kora starts recruiting fighters from around to try to defend this place she was now making a honest living trying to forget her past, this movie is from Zack Snyder who has made some very cool movies and some of my favorites like 300 and Wonder Woman, even with his version of Justice League did a great job so I don’t think Rebel Moon will disappoint the only problem will be how much of hanger will it be at the end been a two part movie, similar to Rune that we are all waiting on.

This are just brief descriptions of what I expect from each of the TV Series and Movies I mention on this post, trying to bring you my premature opinion on them adding as much information I could grab, this set I think will do very well specially with the movies, the only weak links are Culprit and Percy Jackson, those two for me are a 50/50. Sweet Home is the only one that is not on English and some people cant take watching with subtitles but in my case that’s fine I do it with anime already so its not big deal and the story very Sci-Fi fits on anime too so I still have high hopes about Sweet Home, everything else I think its bulletproof.

Tv Series I’ll be watching on November

As I’m trying to write other content than recaps of TV Series episodes here some info about the TV Series I’m looking for on November, some of them just started and others about to, there are a few in particular that I’m excited about like MONARCH that I recently made a post about the trailer and the first movie related to the TV Series, Kong: Skull Island (2017); same goes for For All Man Kind, I remember this was the series that got me to love most of the content that Apple TV+ puts out, I dare to say that over 80% of their content is good, For All Man Kind ends on Season 4 since some of the characters are presented as very old and some others are not even in NASA anymore or any other space program, the show adds new characters too on Season 4. From this six series that I mention there is one a Mini Series I’m a bit skeptical and that’s the Anderson Silva mini series, I think it’s going to be a kind of documentary style and not exactly as a drama/fight TV series, its going to be on Paramount so I don’t expect it to be trash, and last but still excited about it since I’m just a casual and very commercial Anime viewer I got on my radar Onimusha, an adaptation of the game, from what I have read online this is a classic with a big fan base behind that probably going to think the series is trash as most of 90% game adaptations out there, not necessarily that they are trash but most doesn’t stick to the story at 100%.

Today I give out my personal ignorant opinion as a regular viewer, I’m not or pretend to be an expert or critic, I’m just giving out my opinion of what I see without judging who made it or what is is based on, for me TV and Movies are just media for entertainment and not educational.

Onimusha
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt22301234/
Air: November, 2, 2023

From what I have seen online without spoiling anything from the show I have to say if you play the game the story is inconsistent compare to the original, for me this is something it doesnt bother anymore and the reason for this is because anything that shows up on TV is mainly to MAKE MONEY, it doesn’t matter if its a Movie, Tv Series, unless it is presented as a Documentary do not expect things to match exactly to every single scene, this is something I have been thinking about writing a post because it happens so often and to be honest I think there is market for this for example people that have never play the game but the story is so good it can be “adapted” usually this means improve or manipulate to appeal for this market who would eventually buy the game who knows.

Im a sucker for anything Capcom most things they touch become gold, on top of that Onimusha as the game is based on a swordsman who always look tired like he is about to retire, he is giving an ancient gaunlet that he use to lock down the souls of demons he start to put away but with every soul he locks down the darkness starts to take over him, the fight scenes remind me a lot of Rourouni Kenshin that recently got a new version, cant wait to watch it on VR (SBS).

Lawmen: Bass Reeves
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15399640/
Air: November, 5, 2023

“You are a law men or outlaw” bit of both… it was about time David Oyelowo get his own TV Series, this guy was great on Silo, Interstellar, Jack Reacher, not the first time he turns out to be the one in charge of the law, I like a good Gun Man story during the times of the Wild West in this case Bass Reeves was on the side of the law, last similar TV series I saw was Billy The Kid that is actually on its second season, I missed this blog post for October thats why I havent mention it, another TV Series based this time on a true story since Bass Reeves was one of the first Black deputy US Marshal in American history, this based on what I have found online, he was most likely trying to do his best job during times he had everything against him including the system itself but he was one of the best man hunters (fugitives/outlaws) for three decades, one of the most deadly men in the frontier.

For All Mankind – Season 4
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15399640/
Air: November, 10, 2023

If you havent seen the first three series I suggest you fucking do, this is one of my favorites series hands down, every single series is great, the story, the action, there is shooting in the MOON, astronauts stay months inside a tiny room at the moon and all because they are pushing to be the first to get to the Moon, then to Mars and now they are building the first sustainable colony at Mars, bringing people from Earth who had regular jobs to help build the infrastructure on Mars but now they found a gigantic metorite with an insane amount of metal, more than it has been mine in the entire history of mankind, now they fighting for it, China, Russia, NASA, they are all going for it, all this happen in a paralell world as none of the story is based on real events, its the vision of what would have happen of probably NASA had done everything what Space X is doing now but years ago, not going to get into that topic but this is a great Space TV Series.

A Murder at the End of the World
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15227418/
Air: November, 14, 2023

This is a drama that I dont really know what to expect out of it but what got me is that it happens literally at the end of the world in the middle of nothing just mountains and ice all over the place, this series reminds me a lot to The Menu and Andy the character by Clive Owen gives me the same impression as Ralph Fiennes the Chef on The Menu movie. From what I can tell from the trailer there is this place looks like a hotel for a retire, probably no internet, no cell phone just to rest and disconnect from the world but its a setup and Darby the main character of the series a women probably on her 25 – 30 is in the middle and tries to survive, this is a mini series with seven chapters and start with the first two on November 14, nothing really special about it but the production seems good based on the trailer, has a good cast too with Alice Braga, Clive Owen, Edoardo Ballerini, few familiar faces.

Anderson Spider Silva
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14926832/
Air: November, 16, 2023

In Brazil MMA is a HUGE deal, on his prime Anderson Silva was a fucking beast, I remember some of his fights against Forrest Griffin, Vitor Belfort, Dan Henderson, he was so smooth and like to trash talk but at some point in time he had defend so many times his UFC World Tittle that it was like watching Max Verstappen win a race, you knew he was going to win. From what I can tell this is a mini series about how he became that great fighter, his struggles in Brazil growing up probably been bully by other guys until one day he discover that love for fighting, Anderon Silva was insane on the floor, trying to take him down was suicide mission because he would make sure you tap out, on the series it goes from when he was a kid to when he became the big star he is, sometimes he was a bit wild on his personal life but at one point in time he was at the top of the world so who could blame him, I love Anderson Silva, one of my favorite MMA fighters, this is going to be a great watch but don’t expect any Van Damme shit fighting making unreal moves.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters
IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt17220216/
Air: November, 17, 2023

MONARCH is a no brainier for me, on top of that very recent there was a Godzilla movie, Godzilla Minus One at Japan, turn out to be a success based on critics opinion I’m jet to see it, I’m not a movie guy but the end of the year is closing strong even after the Hollywood Strike. The Monsterverse has never make it to TV and that is what this TV Series is about, collecting all that data spread across four movies and then develop the MONARCH story more than it already is, this is no mini series so we are going to get plenty of episodes, season one kicks in with ten episodes, from the start based on the first scene that was released past week we get a fight between a giant crap and a spider what we probably wont get is fights between the main monsters like Godzilla but that’s OK, with ten episodes I think its enough to develop the MONARCH story and have other monsters show up to destroy cities or after Godzilla, very excited about this one too.

 

www.skiptvads.blog - tv series divider

I’m going to try to post the next day on some this series, MONARCH and For All Mankind are my two favorites out of this list but knowing me this will take some effort since some times I get busy at work or at home, when that happens I tend to not have enough patience to sit down and write content, I have been thinking on quitting my 8-5 one day but not now since I still need that income for certain plans, may be next year around this time I will reconsider since I really like writing content and if I could have the time to create videos that would be great too, I see some guys in Hive that post twice a day and on top comment others people post and are very active in Threads, all I can think is how the fuck they have the time but most likely they don’t have an 8-5, I’m not miserable but also not enjoy having the 8-5 I have at the moment, I though this post was going to be short but me talking about my job doesn’t help that much so I hope one day I might have the option to not have an 8-5 and still move on with projects without having to worry about my finances.
