  1. This was actually the first I've seen of Horns (haven't read it and hadn't watched a preview yet). I think it looks great, and I am blown away at how different Daniel Radcliffe sounds with an American accent!
    I can't decide if I'm excited for a Last Of Us film or not. For me, that game was so intense, so emotional, so fantastic that I don't want anything to alter it. I can't imagine Joel with a different voice, or Ellie either (though Maise Williams is an excellent choice I think). For now, I'm settling for not loving the idea, but not hating it either.

  2. I really hope Doctor Who comes to a theater near me. That would make my entire August. I had mixed feelings about Gotham from the articles I'd read about it, but after seeing that trailer I'm so pumped! Yes to Mothra and Ghidorah in Godzilla 2 and Locke and Key getting a film adaptation. I'm curious to see what the Warcraft movie will be like. I had no idea one was even in the works.

  4. I'd be interested to read Horns—I've not read any of Joe Hill's books, but I've heard good things. (I'm not typically a horror fan.)



    And I need to play Last of Us. I'm so behind on my games!

  5. Looks like tickets for the DW premiere are available on Fandango: http://www.fandango.com/doctorwhoseasonpremiere_175285/movietimes (On the Fathom event site, it shows a midnight premiere, but I didn't see those on Fandango.)

    Have you read Locke and Key? I've been meaning to ...

    And yeah, the Warcraft movie could be really great ... or could be hilariously terrible. We shall see.

  6. I've read the first three story arcs of Locke and Key – Welcome to Lovecraft, Head Games, and Crown of Shadows – and they're all fantastic. I stopped picking up comics on a weekly basis about three years ago, so I'm reeeeally behind on it. Definitely one of the best titles IDW has to offer, though!

  7. I'll add it to my list of TBRs, then. :)
