Watched these on Crunchyroll but now wondering what my options are for Kingsglaive - iTunes only? Don't want to buy the darn thing, just stream it. For free if possible.  paranoid

I rented it on iTunes, was something like $3.

Bethesda Pinball for Pinball FX/Zen Pinball (Doom, Fallout, and Skyrim tables) comes out tomorrow.  That'll be it for me.

Correction on this.  It's out for PC and consoles today, but doesn't hit iOS until Thursday.  Bummed...I wanted to play them on my flight home tomorrow.

I suspect we're letting it sink in.

I admit that the big twist this week took me total surprise.

Spoiler for Hiden:
For the first time in this series, I found myself saying that I didn't understand what the fuck was going on when Ed Harris started talking about William.  The time change threw me for a big loop.

The "center of the maze" stuff felt like a bit of a copout to me.  And what was required didn't follow for me.

Spoiler for Hiden:
How does killing everyone make them self-aware, exactly?  That seemed kind of "we need this for the story" instead of organic.  Maybe Arnold needed it to get Dolores to kill him, but why did Teddy do it?  

I'm sure layers to this will be revealed, but it felt forced to me.

I really liked most of the stuff with Thandie Newton this week.

Spoiler for Hiden:
The fact that her independant plan was, in fact, programmed was cool.  And the second she sat down next to that mother and daughter I knew she'd be going back, of course.  That said, the awkward "Here's your daughter's location that you, um, asked for off camera" scene was clunky, telegraphy, and forced story-driven writing.  Maybe she asked for that previously, and I didn't remember, but it still was all of those things.

And as for SW...
Spoiler for Hiden:
I'd been wondering if there were other worlds (there was the lame spin off to the original film called Futureworld, after all).  Samurai World opens things up considerably, but I hope we don't get into that stuff too much, in the end.

Anyway, this show is very good, and I'm excited for more.

The Mummy Reboot of the Reboot.  Starring Tom Cruise

Also the first movie in the Universal Monster Cinematic Universe.  You know since every other studio has one

Give me the campy version with Brendan Fraiser. 

Yeah, honestly that looked like 90% of that could have been from Mission Impossible or any other Tom Cruise stunt movie.  It may be good, but doesn't look too unique.

Also, I can't imagine that they are going to be able to establish a Universal Monsters Universe...not only does nobody remember those movies, having them be supernatural and trying to be taken seriously seems to never really work (unless you want to churn out the same garbage as Underworld, etc).  And then trying to have Tom Cruise be a central star they are going to have the same issue as Robert Downey Jr, where even if it is successful he becomes far too expensive to keep in them.

I had the trailer pop up somewhere without knowing what it was.  I even knew there was a new Tom Cruise Mummy trailer out in the wild, and I still thought it was a Mission:Impossible trailer for a good chunk of time.

I don't think it matters if people remember the original Universal monster movies or not, we're talking about Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolfman and the Mummy.  People know who those characters are.  They're iconic.

I like the idea of bringing them into the modern age, too.  Especially in a serious way.  I'm curious to see whether, for instance, Dracula of the 1800s was a thing or if he's a new version.

I apparently pre-ordered Last Guardian a long while back, so I think it's coming today.  Unfortunately after reading some of the reviews, I wonder if that was a mistake.
