What’s On The Grill? August 22nd – August 29th

Welcome Exiles to this week’s  What’s On The Grill?, the weekly mini-review corner where we get to blast about whatever we’ve caught recently, feasted on with our eyes as some say.

This week on the grill: I decided to watch some animated features this week so we got an epic battle between Supes and his strongest foe, a dark prequel of Train to Busan, a very different and funny supervillain story and a lot of Arrowverse catching up. Enjoy!

 


The Death of Superman (2018)

“Superman battles against an insurmountable foe named Doomsday.”

4/5- I was never a big reader of actual comics except for a few but this is one storyline that I followed till the end. This is one of the better animated superhero movies. This is what I would have loved and still want to see on the big screen as a live action movie. It has a lot of heart. There were times I didn’t care for the portrayal of Clark. Everything else felt spot on. Can’t wait for the sequel. 

 


Seoul Station (2016)

“Several groups of people try to survive a zombie pandemic that unleashes itself in downtown Seoul.”

3.5/5- The animated prequel to Train to Busan and this is more dark and pessimistic. Little bit slower but a well told story and worth a watch for fans of Train to Busan.

 


Megamind (2010)

“The supervillain Megamind finally defeats his nemesis, the superhero Metro Man. But without a hero, he loses all purpose and must find new meaning to his life.”

4/5- I absolutely love this animated film. Will Ferrell as Megamind  and David Cross as Minion is just hysterical. It’s also a fun play on what happens when the villain wins and there is no hero to go up against. Just a real fun story.

 


TV Watched-

Supergirl– Season 3

I’m really digging this season of Supergirl (Melissa Benoist is perfect as Kara Danvers/Supergirl), and the crossover event this season was a lot of fun.

Flash– Season 4

Arrow-Season 6
