I recently renewed my blog and as such figured it was time to start clearing out some of my old drafts and maybe picking up a new post to work on. Of all the things I’ve put up on this blog I think one of the ones I’m most proud of is the first review in my Games on the Silver Screen series for Mortal Kombat. I got to do a lot of fun video editing and gif making for the post and it was a real learning experience even about the movie itself and everything that went into making it. The biggest surprise of which was that it was actually a financial success at the end of it’s run. As such I think it would be fun to pick a new title to go over and it may as well be one that I have actually not seen yet, so let me introduce what I’ll be watching probably more than once over the next week or two…
Surprisingly this actually dovetails quite nicely with the fact that I’ve been playing through DOOM Eternal and Almost Human with Karl Urban is back on Prime. Even though it only has one season I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys near future cyberpunk stories, overall a solid show that really deserved a longer run.
In addition to this I’ve picked up mini-painting again and I think I’ll try to take some nice progress pictures of what I’m working on and write a sort of general post with things that don’t really merit their own long form article. As far as mini-painting goes I’ve been working on my Star Wars: Legion figures but the recent release of Warhammer 40k 9th Edition and a slew of new models has been really tempting me. I don’t think I’ll crack just yet but honestly it’s been brewing for years and just seems inevitable at this point. Regardless of whether or not I’ll ever even get into fully playing it some of the models just look like they would be super fun to assemble and paint.
At any rate, first up is DOOM and we’ll play what comes next by ear.
I hope everyone has been staying safe and keeping themselves physically and mentally healthy, as much as is possible these days.
I think that’s all I have for now but I’ll be back soon.
