Getting things all wrong

This turned out to be a half way decent movie. I wouldn’t go all the way to four stars on it, but I would give it 3 and a half stars out of 5. The cast, the story, the direction, and even the comedy were all solid. I was actually surprised by this movie. I didn’t think it was going to be nearly as good as it was.

Have you guys seen the trailer for the new Ash vs. Evil Dead series on Starz? This looks so good I would almost get Starz in order to watch it. Ash is back and that is just so awesome to see. Bruce looks great back in this role.

If you haven’t had enough zombie stuff by now. Fear of the Walking Dead starts up on AMC on August 23rd. I will of course watch it. Some trailers make it look great, others don’t, but I will still be there on opening night.

Finally, a bit of music news. Five Finger Death Punch and Iron Maiden (two of my favorite metal bands) are releasing new albums soon. I have included new songs by them below.
