THE BOYS Season 2! New Clips & Poster!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

If you’re a regular visitor to World’s Best Media then you may have heard me say that 2019 was the year of the television series, especially streaming series. With the exception of the once in a lifetime experience that was Avengers: Endgame, I would say that I enjoyed the content on TV far more than anything in theaters. The Umbrella Academy, Good Omens, The Mandalorian, Stranger Things 3, Watchmen, each of these were amazing shows in their own way. Watchmen was not only my personal favorite TV series of year I also think it was the best. It was an absolute masterpiece and it’s chilling how prescient the show ended up being with themes about policing and race being central to the show.

   If it wasn’t for Watchmen, my number one series of 2019 would’ve been Amazon Prime’s The Boys. There were a lot of superhero television projects that came along last year, but most of them were so unique that it didn’t feel tired or overdone. The Boys, from showrunner Eric Kripke (the creator of Supernatural) based on the comic book created by Garth Ennis and Darrick Robertson,   takes place in a world where superheroes exist, one team in particular called The Seven are analogs for the Justice League. Queen Maeve is their Wonder Woman, The Deep is their Aquaman, and so on. When the cameras are rolling there every bit of the heroes that the adoring public wants them to be, but behind the scenes they are depraved, cruel, sadistic, self-serving, and in some cases, insane.

 The boys are a group of mercenaries loosely tied to the government led by a man named Billy Butcher, played pitch fucking perfectly by the amazing Karl Urban. it’s easy to forget how many amazing projects Karl Urban has been a part of, he’s been in Lord of the Rings, Dredd, the new Star Trek films, and he adds another fantastic character to his resume with The Boy’s. 

  After young man named Hugie loses his girlfriend when she’s accidentally and pointlessly killed by The Seven’s version of The Flash, Butcher approaches Hughie to see if he’s interested in a little revenge. It’s the job of Butcher and The Boys to handle things when one of these “supers” gets out of line. By “handle”, I mean either badly fucking them up or killing them in the most brutal way possible. The show is a brilliant commentary on celebrity culture, fame, power, and accountability. It’s strikes a brilliant tone with pitch black humor, but not at the expense of undermining the drama of the story.

Karl Urban’s Butcher is incredible, but it’s the character Homelander played by Antony Starr that really steals the show. This is the first role I’ve seen Starr in and he knocks it out of the fucking park. The “Evil Superman” troupe is fairly common, but it’s never been done as well as Antony Starr’s Homelander. Imagine a character whose façade is a combination of Captain America and Superman. He has the exact same powers as Superman and he is America’s most beloved superhero. But he’s also a complete and total psychopath. What makes him so chilling is how she never completely loses he’s smiling, a pleasant demeanor even when he’s doing something incredibly violent and horrific. He has no empathy whatsoever and his pleasant expression always hides a time bomb just below the surface that could go off at any time. He basically can do whatever he wants and there’s not much anyone can do to stop him. It’s Starr’s spectacular performance that makes Homelander so terrifying. 

One of the new elements being brought into the show for Season 2 is the introduction of the newest member of The Seven: Storm Front. In the comic book that the series is based on, Storm Front is male and a Nazi, so they’ve changed her quite a bit for the show. From what I’ve heard she adds a really interesting dynamic to the team by directly challenging Homelander in a way that he’s not used to. With Homelander being vastly more powerful than the rest of The Seven, adding Storm Front makes this the first time that one of his teammates can match Homelander physically. He’s used to being able to intimidate his coworkers. They know not to fuck with him because of how insanely powerful Homelander is. Storm Front’s inclusion on The Seven completely changes the power dynamic and should be really interesting to watch. EW.com had the first look at Storm Front in photos posted below.

The show is ultimately a conflict between The Boys and The Seven so it will be really interesting to see what the hell they come up with to kill Homelander, because so far he doesn’t seem to have any physical weaknesses. Fortunately, Season 2 is on its way and Amazon Prime has released a few great promos to tease the upcoming season. Both clips serve to set up some major plot points that will be in play in Season 2. So if you were a fan of Season 1 and you’re curious about the direction the story might be going, these videos will give you some answers without spoiling anything. Also, let’s not forget Season 1, ended on one hell of a cliffhanger, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out as well. If you haven’t watched The Boys, yet I can’t recommend it enough. If you’re looking for something to watch for something new to watch, make sure you check out the first season on Amazon Prime. You can watch the two new clips from Season 2 right here:

The Boys Season 2 premieres on Amazon Prime on 9/4/20

TRAILERS- Superman: Man of Tomorrow & Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

So far, it’s been a fantastic year for DC Animated Movies. First, we got the excellent adaptation of the classic Superman graphic novel, Superman: Red Son. Which is one of the best movies DC Animation has put out in years. Then just a few months ago with the release of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, which was a bleak, bloody, action packed, funny, thrill ride, that utterly destroyed the interconnected DC Animated Universe that has been spread over 11 or 12 movies. DC Animation was doing their own version of the MCU with some (but not all) of their films. and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War was the final film in that series and it was pretty fucking great. Now, we have two more DC Animated Movies to look forward to this summer and they both seem Seri promising in completely different ways. First up, we have our first look at the next DC Animated Movie, Superman: Man of Tomorrow! Take a look at the trailer right here and then I’ll give you a few of my thoughts below…

I’m really digging the vibe of this one. First of all I really like how the animation seems unique from other styles we’ve seen from DC in the past. Also, even though they say this is an original story, this is clearly an adaptation of the excellent, recent Superman miniseries, Superman: American Alien. American Alien is a fantastic graphic novel, so if this is even a loose adaptation, I’m all for it! Plus, I love seeing Superman fight villains like Lobo and Parasite. Bottom line: I’ll be buying a digital copy of this movie it hits iTunes in July. If it’s anywhere near as good as Superman: Red Son and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, I’m sure I’ll buy the Blu-Ray, too.

Superman: Man of Tomorrow will available for digital download on 8/23 and 4K/Blu-Ray on 9/8

The second DC Animated film we can look forward to in the near future, is Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons. This originally appeared as a series of animated shorts on The CW seed app. DC Animation expanded the content and decided to release it as a feature length film, focusing on the DC Universe’s most famous and deadly assassin. Similar successful and entertaining projects have been done with John Constantine and Vixen. It looks damn pretty cool and It certainly is a sharp contrast to Superman a man of tomorrow, it certainly is a sharp contrast to Superman: Man of Tomorrow, take a look at the trailer below:

Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons will be available digitally on 8/4/20 and on 4K/Blu-Ray on 8/18/20

NEW TRAILER & IMAGES: The King’s Man!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

The new trailer for the upcoming film, The King’s Man, was released online over the weekend. The movie, directed by Mathew Vaughn, sports a very solid cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Daniel Bruhl, Charles Dance, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Djimon Hounsou, just to name a few. Taking place right around World War I, the movie is a prequel to Vaughn’s successful Kingsman series and chronicles the founding The Kingsman, a private, non-government intelligence agency dedicated to protecting the world. I love the idea of a newly formed Kingsman organization going up against a colorful group of history’s villains like Rasputin and Mata Hari. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Ralph Fiennes looks to be fulfilling the role is this movie, that Colin Firth did so well in the first two. It’s a brilliant direction to take the franchise in, after the somewhat lackluster second installment in the series. The best sequels take the world that was established in the first film and do something completely different and unique with it. That’s what they look to be achieving here and the whole thing looks like a blast. 

The King’s Man was originally scheduled for release a few months ago, but Disney’s purchase of Fox and the subsequent pandemic delayed the film’s premiere to September 18th. I’m a big Mathew Vaughn fan, with the possible exception of the second Kingsman movie, he hasn’t made a film that I don’t love (and even Kingsman: The Golden Shower is still pretty good). Layer Cake, Stardust, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and Kingsman: The Secret Service are all excellent films. Hopefully this movie returns Mathew Vaughn to the standard of excellence many fans have come to expect from the talented filmmaker. Watch the new trailer right here:

The King’s Man arrives in theaters on 9/18/20

FIRST LOOK: Justice League: The Snyder Cut!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

There’ve been few things in recent popular culture that have been more divisive than Zack Snyder‘s foray into the DCEU. Personally, I’m a big Zack Snyder defender. I think, with the exception of Sucker Punch, he’s never truly made a bad movie.

   Man of Steel is easily my favorite live-action Superman movie. Henry Cavill is much better in the role than people give him credit for and the movie is underrated in general. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is a very flawed film, but I love it. Particularly the R-Rated Ultimate Edition. It’s sad that the films reception and his personal issues forced Ben Affleck to walk away from the character because he was arguably our best live action Batman to date. The only thing in that movie that was truly terrible was the decision to cast Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and his god awful subsequent performance. I understand that, as fans we all have our own beliefs about how beloved character should be portrayed on screen, but I was pleasantly surprised by Batman V Superman, especially because the film was getting such mixed reviews at the time. 

I don’t count Justice League because at the end of the day that wasn’t really Snyder’s film. Almost everything with Superman in that movie was shot after he left the film, for personal reasons. Henry Cavill was well into filming Mission: Impossible Fallout, where he sported a thick mustache. You can tell that all of Superman’s scenes were shot after Zack Snyder left the film, because Paramount, the film studio that was making Mission Impossible, wouldn’t let Warner Bros. shave Cavill’s mustache for JL reshoots. So, instead of choosing the much simpler, cheaper, and smarter option of shaving his mustache and having Cavill wear a fake for the remainder of shooting Mission Impossible, Warner Bros. had to remove the mustache digitally. The god awful result is that the whole bottom half of Superman’s face in JL looks like a creepy mannequin come to life. Of course none of that is Zack Snyder‘s fault because he already left the movie at that point, but it’s a funny story if you haven’t already heard it.

Now, Zack Snyder is finally getting a chance to give us his vision of his Justice League film, or at least something pretty close to it. Justice League: The Snyder Cut is premiering on HBOMax next year, sometime in 2021. It might not be much, but HBO released a brief teaser for the project that you can watch below. Of course, you can’t judge a movie after only seeing less than 60 seconds of footage, but I already dig the darker tone. We’re only shown two quick scenes, one involving Diana played by Gal Gadot that was not in the theatrical cut at all and a quick look at a alternate version of the ancient battle sequence that opens the film where Steppenwolf has been replaced by… Well, I won’t spoil it, but it’s someone much scarier and much more interesting. The thing that both of these scenes have in common is that they’re extremely ominous and they both serve to focus on the appearance of a certain iconic DC villain, not featured in the theatrical cut. Take a look below, I’d love to hear what you guys think:

FIRST LOOK: PlayStation 5 & More!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

   It’s been a big week for Sony and their PlayStation 5 Game Console. First, up was the teaser trailer for what appears to be the sequel to PS4’s Spider-Man game. Which seems to be shifting its focus away from Peter Parker, to a story will revolve around Miles Morales, with the game new game titled Spider-Man: Miles Morales debuting on Sony’s upcoming PS5. Check out the trailer here:

It goes to show you how far gaming technology has come, that when my mother saw the picture posted below, she thought it was a real person. The graphics are incredible!

  Then, after that pretty damn cool news, PlayStation dropped a bomb. After all the speculation, excitement, and rumors, Sony has finally revealed our first look at the PS5 console! Unfortunately, the two most important questions about the new console haven’t been answered yet: When is it coming out? And What will it cost? I have a feeling we will get an answer to both of those questions relatively soon, considering that Sony chose to unveil their console to the world. I’d expect a Holiday 2020 release date because that’s what Sony has indicated in the past and that’s the release date given in the announcement trailer for Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PS5. However, the really interesting PS5 news is, that for the very first time, customers will have the option to purchase PS5 and its games completely digitally. Of course, this will not affect customer’s ability to purchase a physical copy. It’s just another option given to consumers when purchasing the system. It will probably come down to whatever work for each individual. Take a look at the video from Sony unveiling the new system:

    It’s not 100% clear how this will work and what the advantages and disadvantage iwill be when it comes to choosing the physical console or the digital one. A major video game company has never done anything quite like this, so it’s a pretty big deal. It shows that the world is moving l more and more away from physical copies of media and even more into the world of digital.

Finally, this week sees the debut of The Last Of Us: Part II on PS4. The sequel to 2013’s The Last Of Us, which was a post-apocalyptic masterpiece. The first game was a beautiful piece of storytelling and character drama, that transcended both the genre and the medium.

2013’s The Last Of Us was a truly mind blowing experience and it looks like Naughty Dog, the company that produced both games, stepped up to the challenge of creating a worthy the sequel. The game is available everywhere on 6/19/20. You can check out IGN.com’s review of The Last Of Us: Part II right here:

Let us know what you think of the PS5 announcement, Miles Morales: Spider-Man, and The Last Of Us: Part II in the comments below!

Percy Jackson and The Unexpected Reboot

*Editor’s Note: Paul is on vacation this week, and fairly disconnected from the world, so hopefully this quench your thirst for World’s Best Articles.

I’m about a month late on this, but largely because I don’t know how many people who weren’t looking for this news would have found it, so my hope is that it’s still fresh or brand new to many of you.

I’m a big Percy Jackson fan, I read the entire “Percy Jackson and The Olympians” series after seeing the first movie. Then I saw the second movie, and I was fuming. Imagine if Voldemort had returned and had his big showdown with Harry in the third book instead of the seventh, basically that was how the second movie was. Fans of the movies, between the undercutting that the second film did and no rumors of a third movie, thought the series was done on film. It sucked, because some of the best stuff was yet to come, and it never came.

Uh Oh Annabeth, I don’t think we’re getting a third film!

Well, as I’ve said on here a few times before, I have a four-year-old, and so I’m always looking for new entertainment, and when the first movie, “Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief” was added to Disney +, I decided to show it to him. It was a little more intense than I remembered, but my son can handle it. After watching it he was obsessed, and asked me all about it, I could remember some of the details on my own, and some I had to look up, and when I looked it up, I found out that Rick Riordan (the author of the books) had announced that they were going to be making a Disney + show, and expressed his own disappointment with the films. He basically said that he hadn’t seen the films but had read the scripts and described the process as seeing his life’s work “put through a meat grinder.”

It sounds like Rick Riordan will have a considerable amount of control in the show, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Rick being the creator of the books implies that there will be a certain level of faithfulness to the books that the films lacked, and I think they do need to follow the structure closer in order to allow the full story to play out properly. My worry, is over faithfulness. Let’s use the Star Wars Prequel trilogy as an example. George Lucas had full control, and that meant that clunky dialogue and bad acting went unchecked, a trilogy that I would argue with better dialogue and acting may have been the best in the series, was somewhat squandered. In addition to the prequels, in between Episodes I and II, we started into the Harry Potter film adaptations, and while I really like the Harry Potter films, they did one thing for the film industry that I’m not sure was a good thing; they made fans want as faithful and literal of a film translation as possible to source material. There was no more ‘spirit’ of the concept in adaptations, and if you got the wrong color cat for a scene, fans would go nuts (looking at you Hunger Games fans).

“…it’s my life’s work going through a meat grinder…”

With something that as specific of a story as the Percy Jackson series has, I want faithfulness in structure, and spirit, but I don’t want them to try to recreate dialogue from the book verbatim, unless it works, or is important (i.e. prophecies and things like that). I hope Riordan realizes that a show isn’t a book, and is able to adapt for that audience. I don’t know if he can or cannot, because his only IMDb credits are Percy Jackson related, and he had minimal control on the films. He could be great, and he could be awful.

Personally, I’m excited that there will be a new Percy Jackson series, and if it’s good, I hope they go through the sequel series “Heroes of Olympus,” which follows some of the characters in the Percy Jackson series, along with some Roman demigods. That’s kind of the cool thing about this series, if it’s adapted well, there are a ton of possibilities to keep going, or for spin-offs.

In the mean time, if you’re not familiar with the series, you have at least a year to read the first book before the show starts in 2021, and I would highly recommend the book series.

TV Review: Amazon’s “Upload”

Written by Michael Cole

When I originally saw the trailer for “Upload,” I thought it looked like a “Good Place” knock off, and I wasn’t terribly interested. Eventually, between having exhausted so many shows in lock-down and my wife saying that she heard it was good, we decided to watch it. “Upload,” is a show about a 2033 world in which several companies have their own VR ‘heavens’ in which people can upload their consciousness into immediately before their death. Unlike what many expect Heaven to be like, these virtual ‘heavens’ are very capitalist, and therefore just like on Earth, those with means live better than those without.

One of the things that the show does really well, is balance tones. The show is part sit-com, part murder mystery, there are silly and whimsical moments, deep emotional moments, and a few gross-out moments, and they’re all weaved pretty together pretty well.

An aspect which I think makes the show unique is how the technology in this series operates. So, we follow the main character, Nathan Brown, as he is introduced to a swankier ‘heaven.’ Nathan has left behind his mother, niece, and girlfriend, all of whom can put on virtual reality suits and visit him. This alone is a cool concept, but one of the big events in the show is Nathan’s funeral, which he is able to attend with the help of a large wall wide screen, and the mourners can come up and talk to him as if they are in the same room together, minus the physical ability to hug or anything. Through out the show, he able to Skype or FaceTime call people in the real world just as he would have pre-death.

As the show progresses, the technology is used as a way to reemphasize the idea of wealth inequality. At one point, trying to think about what he can actually afford, Nathan goes with his mother (in a portable hard drive) to a ‘travel agent’ to tour more affordable ‘heavens.’ At the ‘travel agent’s’ office, we see the difference in connectivity with the real world, when Nathan’s head appears in an oversized lightbulb to discuss the possibilities.

‘Upload’ also shows us how this technology affects newer relationships. Nathan and his girlfriend, Ingrid, have not been dating very long when he is uploaded, and their relationship had very much been based in sex prior to his death, and while sex is still an option, it does force their relationship to deal with more emotional and intellectual compatibility. Nathan also develops a friendship/crush on his customer service representative (they’re called ‘angels’ within the company), Nora. This relationship, while they’re both physically attracted to each other, is based significantly more on intellectual and emotional compatibility.

There is a lot going on in the show, and I want to leave you without any significant spoilers, and I think much of this what I’ve gone over you could get from the trailer. The show very quickly introduces a mystery to propel you forward through the season, as well as figuring out all of the logistics of the character drama. I think it was really well done, and would recommend the show.

COOL VIDEO: WatchMojo’s Top 20 TV Show Opening Scenes!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

  For several years now, I’ve been of the opinion that television is the dominant storytelling medium of the 21st century. When I say dominant I mean, television has been consistently turning out storytelling, acting, and action set pieces that we normally only expect from big budget Hollywood films. Personally I think the real game changer was Game of Thrones. 

    Love or hate how it ended, up until Game of Thrones, in theory there’s nothing stopping a television show from having an actor give a riveting and compelling performance that rivals the years Oscar nominees. Where television couldn’t measure up, was its ability to deliver visual effects heavy, action set pieces. Game of Thrones was the first television show to deliver action sequences that were as good or better than anything on the big screen that year. The Siege of Castle Black, The Massacre at Hardholme, The Battle of The Bastards, were among some of the best battle sequences in any medium and rivaled what we’ve come to expect from our summer blockbusters. The VFX quality that went into making Dany’s dragons look damn near photo real was astonishing. In fact I’ll go so far as to even say that I think Daenerys dragons were the most realistic looking dragons ever put on film. They look like real living breathing creatures. 

     Game of Thrones was only the beginning. My favorite kind of storytelling: fantasy, science fiction, superhero stories, all require complex VFX, stunt work, and make up effects, among other things to make them work. Fortunately as Television has progressed as a medium, Visual Effects have become advanced enough and cost effective enough, for even a network like The CW can have one of their hit superhero shows feature a spectacular fight scene between The Flash and Gorilla Grodd. Now we get to see armies of creatures out of fantasy clash in battle, we can marvel at our favorite superheroes saving the day in daring fashion, and watch some of the coolest fight choreography this side of John Wick, all without setting foot in a movie theatre. 

     Especially with movie theaters currently closed, we all appreciate now more than ever that some of the most memorable characters, some of the greatest drama and storytelling, as well as incredible VFX are available to us every day on streaming and TV. Which is why I loved it when one of my favorite YouTube channels,  Watchmojo,  put together this list of the Top 20 TV Show Opening Scenes. As I thought back to some of my all time favorite, opening scenes to a TV series, it was fun to think of all the shows that came to mind for me and compare them to the 20 picks and honorable mentions in this video. Like I said, I had a some fun with it, so will I thought I’d share it with all of you! Give it a watch right here:

I’d love to know what some of your favorite TV show openings are! Hell, it doesn’t have to be just TV, what are some of your favorite movie openings scenes? Let me know in the comments below!

NEW TRAILER: Christopher Nolan’s TENET

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Summer has always been my favorite season. I love spending an afternoon, sitting under a shady tree, reading a good book or graphic novel. I love going to Cape Cod as often as I can and enjoy the beautiful beaches. Most of all, I love SUMMER MOVIE SEASON. They may not always be the most high brow of films, but Big Summer Blockbusters have always been and always will be, my favorite kind of movies. It’s purest form of the moviegoing experiences. You get your hot popcorn, a cold drink, and hopefully, the world outside of the theatre falls away for a few hours. You can put you problems and worries aside and take a trip to Gotham City or an island resort where cloned dinosaurs roam or a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… and if anyone understands the cinematic magic of the Summer Blockbuster, it’s Christopher Nolan. The best Summer Blockbusters don’t only offer amazing spectacle, but gripping, fleshed out characters and stories as well. To quote Will Smith, Nolan has become a master of “Popcorn and Prestige” filmmaking. The trailer for his new film Tenet, has dropped and it sure looks like a blast!

Tenet Director, Christopher Nolan

Starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Michael Caine, Tenet looks to be a thrilling spy film with time travel thrown into the mix. Watch the trailer here and let me know what you think….

Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, Summer Movie Season 2020 is a bust. Most theatres are still closed and only a few movies like Wonder Woman: 1984 are keeping their current summer release dates. While other movie studios and filmmakers are pushing their movies back to next summer or releasing their films on streaming services or On Demand. Come Hell or high water, Christopher Nolan is determined to release Tenet THIS YEAR, IN MOVIE THEATERS. Though originally scheduled for a 7/17/20 release date, it’s possible Nolan may push back the release date to ensure a larger audience. If I to bet on it, I’d say movie end up will hitting theaters in August or November. If they’re not going to stick to the original release date, these are the 2 most logical months for such a high profile project (and Nolan will still be able get the movie in theaters before the end of the year). I suppose we’ll have to wait and see. I know I’m excited!

PODCAST: How To Rob A Bank… with SUPERPOWERS!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

On this episode of The World’s Best Podcast, Paul Sr. and I discuss which superpowers would be the most useful if you were robbing a bank? As the discussion continues, more about Paul Sr.’s criminal past emerges…

Considering how often super villains rob banks in comic books, there aren’t that many bank robbery scenes in superhero films. However the few scenes that do exist are all pretty fucking awesome. I can think of three great ones… well, two and a half anyway.

  1. The iconic opening sequence of The Dark Knight, when The Joker and his gang of masked clowns rob a mob bank:

2. The great bank robbery scene in Spider-Man 2, where Doc Ock and The Ole’ Wallcrawler’s clash for the first time:

2b. This is what I meant when I said two and a half great bank robbery scenes in superhero movies. This scene from Spider-Man: Homecoming isn’t quite a bank robbery. It’s a bunch of thugs with high-tech weaponry trying to steal an ATM, but it’s still a lot of fun, so I wanted to include it here:

For more super-powered bank robbing shenanigans, make sure you listen to this episode of The World’s Best Podcast, posted right here.
