Fear The Walking Dead took a brief hiatus over the fall after their seventh episode. Enough time has gone by as fans are anxious for the return of Fear. The return of Fear The Walking Dead is coming shortly after the final episode of the tenth season of The Walking Dead.

AMC oficially announced that Fear The Walking Dead will return for the second half of the sixth season on April 11th. A trailer that was uploaded on The Walking Dead’s official account showcased the announcement.

It is also to note, that I reached out to AMC in early January for the status of the return of Fear The Walking Dead. A representative told me that Fear will return in April. But the exact date was not revealed at the time.

New cast members will also join the sixth season of Fear The Walking Dead. John Glover (The Good Wife, Smallville, Scrooged), Nick Stahl (Carnivale, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Sin City), and Keith Carradine (Madam Secretary, Fargo, Deadwood) will all make their debuts on this season.

The synopis of the second half is the following: As Morgan’s (Lennie James) bid to free the remaining members of the group becomes bolder, Virginia (Colby Minifie) grows increasingly desperate to find her sister and protect the settlements from forces working inside and outside her walls. The second half of Season Six reveals the impact of what living under Virginia’s control has done to each person in this group, who once saw themselves as a family. New alliances will be formed, relationships will be destroyed, and loyalties forever changed. When everyone is forced to take sides, they discover the meaning of, “The End is the Beginning.”’

Yu-Gi-Oh Card Artworks That Are Misleading

There is always something that meets the eye when it comes to artwork. When you take an close examination of the artwork, you will notice some things that you did not see the first time around. There are thousands of card artworks in the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise that’s are outstanding. These Yu-Gi-Oh card artworks stood out to me as they can be missed without a close inspection. Here are some Yu-Gi-Oh cards that have misleading artwork.

Decoy Dragon

Decoy Dragon’s name fits the artwork after you take a second look. This Yu-Gi-Oh card’s art is overlooked by many duelists that has this card in their deck. Your mind will be blown after I say this. The eyes on Decoy Dragon are actually the two small eyes at the end of the sides of it’s head and not the two large “eyes” on the front. It really lives up to the name and now you cannot unsee it!

Souleater

Souleater looks like a normal fish Yu-Gi-Oh monster with basic artwork. Take a look of everything around the fish. Do you notice anything?It is part of the full body of the actual monster.

It is crazy to think that this is the full model of Souleater. Many would wonder which is actually the “Souleater” between the large monster, or the fish itself It is kind of an out of body experience in this sense.

Abyss Dweller

The first time anyone takes a look at Abyss Dweller, the viewer would think that it is just a cave. look very closely on the left, it is a big dragon. The dragon blends in very well in the cave and it can give onlookers a nightmare if they were to see that in real life.

Red Eyes Black Flare Dragon

The Red Eyes Yu-Gi-Oh archetype has a ton of popular cards. Red Eyes Black Flare Dragon has a small detail that I almost missed. Red Eyes Black Flare Dragon has two more eyes under it’s jaw. This is very surprising and unique as the eyes look like it is part of the background. I could not blame anyone that missed that detail the first time around.

Review: Wonder Woman 1984 Is The DCEU’s ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

2017’s Wonder Woman is in my top three of my favorite films in the DCEU. The acting from Gal Gadot, and the action and storytelling made that film stand out after the poor reception of the last few DCEU films at that point. I was looking forward to the sequel Wonder Woman 1984 especially since Patti Jenkins directed the first film. But my anticipation soon turned into disappointment.

Wonder Woman 1984 should have been a great movie. On paper, the idea of the film taking place during that year with a mix of 80’s cliches, comedy, and action with a good superhero story is great. But the execution is bad. The first twenty minutes made zero sense. Is there a point of showing us the younger version of Wonder Woman competing in the games for her to be screwed out of the game when it added nothing to the movie? I was puzzled by that and I thought about that for the entire movie.

Can we also talk about why Wonder Woman 1984 needed to take place that year? There was literally no plot-related reason for the movie to be set in the 80s at all. Terrorists? Oil Barrons? Snake Oil Scammer? Wishing stone? The entire movie could have been set in 2019 and it would have made no difference to the plot whatsoever. Talk about a wasted opportunity. X-Men did a better job with the 60s, 70s and 80s than WW84 did. And this is something I have to nitpick with every movie and television series that takes place in the 1980s and that is, not everyone was dressed like they were auditioning for an MTV music video.

There were a ton of plot holes that opened the floodgates of endless questions on Wonder Woman 1984. How does Steve Trevor know how to pilot that jet model? Where was Maxwell Lord when he found out about the stone? How does Maxwell talking into the camera gives him the ability to grant wishes worldwide? Along with some of the inconsistencies with some of the products that were in the film that were released after 1984? Sorry, but historical accuracy matters to me. These decisions will never be expanded on in the future.

Gal Gadot is perfect for the role as Wonder Woman. But on Wonder Woman 1984, I did not feel the aura and presence of the Wonder Woman character at all. I believe that is because she is much toned down and grounded on Wonder Woman 1984. But there are some good scenes that I did like including the big brawl at the White House.

Kristen Wiig as Cheetah/Barbara Minerva is a good casting choice. But just like Suicide Squad’s Joker, we did not get much out of the Cheetah character. The fight between Cheetah and Wonder Woman gave me flashbacks to the Daryl and Negan vs. Beta fight on The Walking Dead. It should have been a big climactic fight, but it ended up being over before it started with rope physics that are laughable compared to the physics on The Last of Us Part II. And there is something very off about the horrible CGI in most of the film. Wonder Woman 1984 was delayed a few times and they could not even make the CGI better in that time?

Maxwell Lord is a great character in the comics. But here, Maxwell is too cartoonish and not a believable threat. When he appeared on the television granting wishes, I wanted to wish that his character would be dead. In fact, I find it strange that nobody actually wished for that. However, I loved that they gave him a reason to be good again, like yes it’s hamfisted but it works so well. Everyone can relate to a guy who wants to be number one and give his son the world but he takes it to far and realizes it and fixes it. There are some things that I like about Maxwell, but as a villain, I could not buy into him.

Wonder Woman 1984’s final scene is at Christmas. Think about that for a second. The film started in the summer. Then it led to July 4th where the invisible jet could not be detected during the fireworks for some reason, and finished at December. Can I also add that Barbara told the homeless guy to stay warm in the hot summer night? Where are we? Could they not keep track of their own timespan? I have been to Washington, D.C at the summer weather and it is as hot as New York.

Wonder Woman 1984 is a massive disappointment and I did not need to be tied up to her lasso to tell that truth. What set the stone for a badass Wonder Woman on the first film, is not to be found anywhere on the sequel. I wanted to like Wonder Woman 1984, but the script, the awful pacing, and the bad CGI turned me away. Ladies and gentleman, Wonder Woman 1984 is “The Rise of Skywalker” of the DCEU films and I will stand by it.
