Oh my god! The Read Pile is late this week. My apologies. Work has been crazy haven't had time to write. So if anyone is still interested I give you this week's READ PILE
#1 COUNTDOWN TO FINAL CRISIS 1 - Last issue I'm planning on righting a whole post on, because I totally loved it. I think it made countdown worth it. So i'm expecting this issue to stick by comparison, but I am interested.
#2 DEATH OF THE NEW GODS #8 (OF 8) - Also, this should tie into countdown 2, so I'm excited to see what the New Gods resolution will be.
#3 DYNAMO 5 #12 - I love this book. I wonder how many people read it. If not a lot of people read it, I think I might do some reviews to spur some interest in it. Have you read an issue of Dynamo 5?
#4 MIGHTY AVENGER'S #12 SII - Secret Invasion number one review is also on the way. I'm onboard with this.
#5 MS MARVEL #26 SII - I picked up the last tie-in because I liked the cover. I dropped Ms. Marvel around issue 15 because things with the lightning storm team we're pretty lame. I'll be on board this book till one issue after Secret Invasion and then I'll se if I drop it or not.
#6 WOLVERINE FIRST CLASS #2 - Really loved issue, review is on the way. PICK IT UP!
#7 SHADOWPACT #24 - Future, past and present Shadowpact collide, this shouldn't be to bad. Can Willingham come back, please.
#8 JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #20 - Meh.
#9 SECRET HISTORY THE AUTHORITY JACK HAWKSMOOR #2 (OF 6) - Last issue was interesting. Check it out, if giant robots are your thing.
MOMENT OF WEAKNESS
The "weakness of the week" introduced last week has been replaced by the more cleverly named Moment of Weakness. This week, due to my not being around, am going to give you three links for your pleasure and as my humble apology.
Well, Season 2 of Netflix's critically acclaimed hit "The Haunting of Hill House" is finally here. Sort of. Actually it's a completely different story, although many of the central cast members return in completely different roles. And the timing couldn't be more perfect with October just over a week old and all of us spending our first Halloween season in quarantine (seven months into a quarantine that wasn't supposed to last more than two) for a retrospective rewatch of "The Haunting of Hill House" from the beginning. This is one of those series that is almost more enjoyable to watch the second (or third or fourth) time around to see all the clues and connect them as you go. But what really jumps out at me in this rewatch goes far beyond the mysteries and secrets of Hill House...
Because this is 2020, we know most of us will likely be spending our New Year's Eve at home--but that doesn't mean we can't do something special to celebrate the death of this foul year of our Lord. So here's a list of our favorite movies that sync up to ring in the new year with a big, epic moment and what time you should start watching them on New Year's Eve. For the best results, we suggest starting the movie, pausing it, setting it to 0:00:00 and unpausing at the time suggested. We also suggest watching these movies on DVD or BluRay if possible because even the most insignificant streaming blips can throw off the timing completely. Cabin in the Woods - 10:30:07 PM If you want to ring in the new year with the Old Gods rising again, hit play on Drew Goddard's modern classic Cabin in the Woods at 10:30:07 PM (10:30 and 7 seconds) and at the stroke of midnight, the giant hand will come crashing down. Fight Club - 9:44:19 PM Perhaps you prefer a more anarchist a
