TNTM Preview – Dynamite Comics “The Boys” coming to Amazon Prime

The Boys is not for the faint of heart.  Garth Ennis, the man who brought us Preacher, is bringing another of his dark creations to TV through Amazon Prime.

The Boys is a Dynamite Comics series that ran for 72 issues.  The story is set in a post 9/11 world where the superheroes are not all good Boy Scout types.  In fact, most of them are down right terrible.

A lot of the superheroes live totally hedonistic lives of depravity.  Murder, drugs, and all other sorts of crimes are the norm for them.  All the while they pretend to be saving the world with the adulation of millions of fans.

The governments of the world realize they are no longer in control.  Superheroes are able to commit any act of debauchery with no repercussions.  They decide to form a secret international task force charged with taking down as many superheroes as they possibly can.

They call this task force “The Boys”.

The people that make up The Boys aren’t really much better than the depraved superheroes.  It would be a stretch to call them the good guys.  They all have very colorful backgrounds and they employ questionable tactics some times, but they get the job done.

Any story penned by Garth Ennis is likely to carry at least an R rating.  If you watched his television adaption of Preacher you know he doesn’t shy away from blood and gore.  If the series follows along the same plot as the comics, we are in for a very bloody ride.

I can almost promise you there will be disembowelments, dismemberments, and impalements.  I can’t wait to see this not-so-rosy picture of superheroes.

Video+Story – TNTM: Marvel Thor Ragnarok movie review

Alamo Drafthouse El Paso gave us the opportunity to watch Thor Ragnarok and give our review. This is the third movie for Thor as the title starring character.

***Warning, there may be unintentional spoilers below ***

Thor Ragnarok took a more humorous route than it’s predecessors. They finally let Chris Hemsworth show his comedic chops. His scenes with Hulk were some of the best in the movie.

Speaking of the Hulk, the CGI was good enough it didn’t take you out of the moment. All the special effects were very good. Fenris looked as real as a wolf the size of a house can look on film.

The movie was packed with top tier acting talent. I know we missed a bunch of the actors in our video review so I want to give you the list here:
Chris Hemsworth – Thor
Tom Hiddleston – Loki
Cate Blanchett – Hela
Idris Elba – Heimdall
Jeff Goldblum – Grandmaster
Tessa Thompson – Valkyrie
Karl Urban – Skurge
Mark Ruffalo – Bruce Banner / Hulk
Anthony Hopkins – Odin
Benedict Cumberbatch – Doctor Strange
Taika Waititi – Korg
Rachel House – Topaz
Clancy Brown – Surtur (voice)
Tadanobu Asano – Hogun
Ray Stevenson – Volstagg
Zachary Levi – Fandral
Luke Hemsworth – Actor Thor
Sam Neill – Actor Odin
Matt Damon – Actor Loki
Stan Lee – Barber

I liked the movie a lot. I place it in my top 3 favorite Marvel movies. Jack liked the movie as well, but he thought the humor was forced in some parts of the movie. Overall we both thought the movie was VERY GOOD. We are both just a coupla hack movie reviewers though. You shouldn’t take our word for it. That’s why we asked fellow audience members what they thought of Thor Ragnarok. Their response was 100% favorable. Watch the video if you don’t believe me.
