Everybody knows The Last of Us is based on a video game. The first episode of the TV series based on that game aired on HBO Max this week. The question is, does the series look good enough to watch even if you aren’t a gamer (e.g., me)?
Calls is a series of short episodes that are versions of phone calls. You never see anyone’s face, it’s all voice work and a visually engaging screensaver type representation of words, connections, and emotions. It’s streaming on Apple TV+.
Wonder Woman 1984 was a terrific superhero blockbuster extravaganza. But it did not leave me bursting with enthusiasm the way the 2017 film did. I was so wound up by the earlier film I wrote 3 lengthy posts about how great it was. I won’t have that much to say this time.
