Could be cool. Maybe they could make a Rainbow Six series if it this movie hits it off.

According to Wikipedia they’re following this up with a Rainbow Six movie, also with Michael B Jordan

Edit: in fairness they’ve also been trying to get it made for 25 years, this specific version has been in the works since 2018

Are...gasp...we still talking about...anime?

Evangelion has a special place in my heart because I watched it when I was a teenage anime nerd. I still enjoy it, but last time I rewatched it I found it needlessly confusing and the movie is such a that it actually hurts my enjoyment of the series as a whole.

Curious to see what they do with the finale of the new movies though.. it's supposed to be out next week.

Are the 1.11 etc movies a retelling of the story, or a continuation? I can't really see how you'd go about continuing after End of Evangelion, that went bananas at the end.

Started watching the Netflix series Manhunt: Deadly Games about the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing and the subsequent investigation. I'm three episodes deep right now, and it's really good so far.

I had read the fantastic long article in Vanity Fair about Richard Jewell a year or two ago when the movie came out (but never saw the movie).
https://archive.vanityfair.com/article/share/1fd2d7ae-10d8-474b-9bf1-d1558af697be
So I'm already familiar with the major beats of the story as it relates to Jewell and how badly he was treated by the cops and the media. I also knew the background of the turf battles between the GBI, FBI, ATF, and Atlanta PD, and the extraordinarily bad investigation the FBI ran.

Thus far, the major characters in the series are the Atlanta Journal Constitution reporter who broke the Jewell story, the FBI's lead investigator who went after him, Jewell, his mom, his lawyer, and an ATF bomb expert.

Bookchat:

I mentioned that I'd gotten back into 40k fluff again because I'm an idiot. Recently, I finished 3 of the 4 Eisenhorn books and one Ciaphas Cain novel.

I think that if you really enjoy the general kind of 'hero with a problem' novel, you ought to look at Eisenhorn. It manages to strike just the right balance between the hero and his crew sharing the spotlight, manages to make them all somewhat unique, has conflict between them, etc. It all sounds like basic poo poo, but a lot of authors... don't do it? And I rather enjoyed seeing it. And the conflicts he has between himself and his allies aren't stupid bullshit, or misunderstandings. And some of them simmer for a long time before they come to a head. Friendships are made, friendships are lost. People join the team. People die. The grimness of the setting of offset by moments of humor, instead of being unrelenting grimdark.

It's good stuff.

One of the things I rather enjoy is that the weird stuff isn't there all the time. Things like Space Marines and Chaos and so'n don't just cartwheel around, shouting out 'hey fuckers, this is 40K, enjoy your stay'. When a psyker with a lot of juice shows up, it's notable. When one or two Space Marines show up, it's like watching monsters fight. And when a warp entity appears, the poo poo really hits the fan. Despite all of that, and despite the setting, combat isn't the main focus. There are scenes where it is ( and plenty of action ), but it's never overindulgent or in the service of itself.

The protagonist, Eisenhorn, isn't an unfamiliar one. You've seen this hero before. Someone dedicated to duty, driven. Calculating. But the author does work to give you insight into who he is vs what he wants. You get a sense for his unstated regrets, things he wish he had. He isn't just a scowl with a gun and a badge. Another plus is that the audio narrator sounds kind of like Patrick Stewart, so it's fun to imagine Inquisitor Picard.

As for Ciaphas Cain, the author isn't as good as Eisenhorn's- but it's fun enough, and there's some short stories floating around Youtube if you want to give it a taste. But in a nutshell? It's 'what if a commissar was actually something of a coward and a self-serving liar with imposter syndrome, and also an unreliable narrator'.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRozBAIbaG4

Read them or don't

Edit: Almost forgot. Dan Abnett also did a book called Gaunt's Ghosts, in which a commissar takes command of a Guardsman company through One Weird Trick. I've only read one, but it was pretty good? Manages to shift the PoV around quite a lot without getting as confusing as a lot of authors would make it, and it feels like it's army-ish. It feels military in tone instead of it being a bunch of guys with guns doing guy with gun things.

Gaunt's Ghosts should be HBO budget tv show, it's got good story, a great premise, plenty of action, a nice set of characters that come and go, and no ever feels like they ever have plot armor.

Nah Ciaphas Cain just has a huge internalized inferiority complex and second guesses himself constantly. Flashman is an out and out terrible human being, though his self awareness of this is part of the entertainment of those novels.

Gaunt's Ghost is pretty much WW2 in Space, with scenarios pretty much ripped from straight from the war. My favourite book in the series, Necropolis, is pretty much Stalingrad in space. But Abnett does it so well.
The first spin-off book for the series is Battle of Britain in space.

There are 15 GG books and they get better as they go on. I pray someone adapts them in my lifetime.

Maybe this person. This whole series is about 12 minutes long, so no excuses not to revel in the glory that is Astartes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bko5GgK5v8

One person did all this. It took them months, but one person did this. And no, you aren't expected to understand everything that's going on, some of it is his own invention (the Astartes chapter and the rebels) and some is based on super obscure lore.

And that Helsreach video ? That's the audiobook with fan-made video. Also a one-person project, they got hired by GW to do official animation series.

I'm not one to suggest anime because most of it is just awful, cringey, and panders to the worst kind of people, but with that said, I would recommend Megalobox. It takes place in the near future, where boxing is dominated arm assisted exo-skeleton to make it faster and more deadly, it has a simple story of an unnamed boxer trying to break out of underground illegal boxing to go legit.

I bring this up because the show was only going to be one season with a conclusive end, however, out of nowhere it's getting a second season.

AEW Dynamite was fantastic again tonight. Among other things, we saw the US television debut of Maki Itoh.

Maki Itoh once dreamed of being an idol singer, but she was fired for not being popular or conventionally attractive. Thus, she turned to professional wrestling.

Tonight, she made her first appearance on American TV in a 3v3 tag team match where things started to break down before she finished her entrance, but Itoh-chan wasn't phased by that at all. She's a goddamned professional.

I've been watching Brand New Animal on and off while doing workouts and I dig the animation. It occupies roughly the same space as BEASTARS, but also doesn't go off on creepy biotruths or other stupid tangents and is therefore better. That's my contribution to anime chat.

That and Patlabor is still good.
