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 – TNTM: Ready Player One movie review

Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One is huge trip down Nostalgia Avenue. There are so many 1980’s and 1990’s references thrown in there that something should touch your childhood memories. I was skeptical of them being able to cram all of the references as well as character stories into a two and a half hour movie.

If you’ve read the book (like me) you will notice right from the beginning that the movie does not follow the outline from the book. That didn’t prevent me from enjoying the movie. The book and movie kinda end up at the same location, they just take different paths to get there.

If you did not read the book (like Patrick) you will probably still like the movie. Great action scenes, good CGI, and plenty of nostalgia for your eyes to feast on.

Ready Player One didn’t disappoint in the throwback department. There are so many pop culture references on the screen, you can’t see them all in one viewing. I know when the Bluray comes out I will be making heavy use of the pause button just to take in all the nostalgia on the screen.

If you liked the book, just go into the movie realizing it is kinda like an abridged version of the book. If you haven’t read the book… no worries. Just sit back and enjoy the show.

Patrick and I both recommend watching Ready Player One. You don’t have to take our word for it though. We asked other audience members for their views on the movie. It was an overwhelmingly positive response from all of them.

Go to Alamo Drafthouse, order a bowl of bottomless popcorn, and enjoy your trip down memory lane.
