Here is what Disney has planned for the month of June.The biggest release for next month is none other than Artemis Fowl. Back in April Disney announced the film would be skipping theaters and going right to the streaming service, as the COVID-19 pandemic is keeping theaters closed. Based on the book series by Eoin Colfer, and arriving on June 12, the film follows the preteen genius Artemis Fowl, “a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he desperately tries to save his father who has been kidnapped. In order to pay his ransom, Artemis must infiltrate an ancient, underground civilization–the amazingly advanced world of fairies–and bring the kidnapper the Aculos, the fairies’ most powerful and coveted magical device. To locate the elusive object, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.”Additionally, the final three episodes of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian arrive on June 5, 12, and 19. The series gives Star Wars fans an inside look at creating the Disney+ original series which took the world by storm.

What's New On Hulu In June 2020? More Movies, TV Shows, And Originals

If you’re looking to plan out your Hulu watch schedule for June, then you’ve come to the right place. During the month, the streaming service will offer up plenty of new movies, TV shows, and original programming. Check out the full list of releases below.On June 12, the fun reimagining of the horror movie Child’s Play arrives. The movie follows a malfunctioning smart toy which starts killing people. Unlike the original ’80s horror movie, there’s no black magic or soul transferring here. It’s all about a doll haunted by bad programming, but it is an entertaining flick.In his review of Child’s Play, GameSpot’s Chris E. Hayner said, “Child’s Play is decent but flawed. While it includes some truly gut-wrenching horror moments and a few jump scares, that it takes too long to fully embrace what it is–a techno-slasher–is disappointing. With the table set, though, hopefully, it will be received well enough to get a sequel that doesn’t waste any time in unleashing Chucky’s full potential.”Continue Reading at GameSpot

New To Amazon Prime Video For June 2020: More Movies, TV Shows, And Originals

The film stars Woody Harrelson as a former pro bowler who takes an Amish man under his wing to take down another pro, played by Bill Murray. It is easily one of the best comedies of the decade.If you love HBO’s Westworld, you can watch Futureworld on June 1. This sci-fi movie is the 1976 followup to the Westworld film from three years prior. At a futuristic theme park, a secret is uncovered which leads to an ex-employee being murdered. In the aftermath, two reporters try to uncover the truth. The movie itself isn’t great–and to be fair, the original Westworld film is just ok–but ’70s sci-fi itself is a fun watch just to see where people during that time thought the far future would be like.Continue Reading at GameSpot

Batwoman: Season 1 Review

Batwoman: Season 1 Review

Note: this is a spoiler-free review of Batwoman Season 1. The entire season is now available to purchase in Digital HD or stream on HBO Max. Find out how you can subscribe to HBO Max here. [poilib element=”accentDivider”] At what point does the Arrowverse become too big for its own good? That’s certainly a question that’s become more pressing over the past year, as Batwoman has joined the CW ranks and the network moves ahead on other spinoffs like Superman & Lois (premiering in January 2021) and potentially Green Arrow and the Canaries (status still TBD). Do fans really need yet another superhero drama on the CW, even one that finally shines a light on the Arrowverse’s little-seen version of Gotham City? Early on, the answer seemed to be a resounding “no,” but it’s a testament to Batwoman’s dogged perseverance that it eventually manages to carve its own niche in a very crowded landscape. Building on 2018’s Elseworlds crossover, Batwoman puts Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane in the spotlight, as Bruce Wayne’s younger cousin comes out of hiding to defend a city that’s struggled without a Batman for three years. Early on, one of Season 1’s biggest mistakes is the decision to circle back and chronicle Kate’s superhero origin story rather than simply continuing where Elseworlds leaves off. That really hinders the show’s momentum early on, without actually adding much to the character or her journey by way of compensation. There’s no apparent reason why the series couldn’t have simply started out with Batwoman already established as Gotham’s new protector and filled in the details of her past when and where necessary. [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=crisis-on-infinite-earths-crossover-photos&captions=true”] Batwoman’s other fundamental mistake is sticking far too closely to the standard Arrowverse formula. So many characters in the early episodes feel as though they’re being shoehorned into traditional DC TV molds. Like Oliver Queen, Kate is the wayward rich kid who has finally come home to save her city. Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson) is the seemingly obligatory sidekick who provides Kate with all the gadgets and snarky banter she could ever need. Characters like Kate’s stepmother Catherine (Elizabeth Anweis) and stepsister Mary (Nicole Kang) recall that early Queen family drama from Arrow’s first two seasons. Early on, Batwoman feels entirely too much like a fusion of Arrow and the Dark Knight movies (in much the same way Arrow itself played like a mash-up of The Dark…

Remember When Xbox One Almost Lost The Console Race?

Remember When Xbox One Almost Lost The Console Race?

It’s wild to think how far Microsoft and the Xbox One has come. It started this generation with what even the company has admitted was a huge misstep. The Xbox One’s debut was nothing short of a catastrophe borne of mixed messaging that targeted the completely wrong crowd, and what many described at the time as anti-consumer strategies. It was a fumble that presented its competitor, Sony’s PlayStation 4, an opportunity. And Sony seized it.Microsoft hasn’t been able to come back from that stumble. PlayStation 4 has maintained a sales lead and owned a great deal of the gaming community’s mindshare, but while the Xbox One hasn’t been able to gain ground, it has at the very least established steady footing again. The process of recovering has been a long and arduous one, but under the leadership of Phil Spencer, Xbox has worked its way back into the hearts and minds of gamers.A new era of Xbox is now on the horizon, but in order to confidently move towards the future, it’s important to keep in mind lessons from the past. And that’s exactly what this episode of Remember When aims to do. It explores the original pitch for the Xbox One, arguably one of the worst sales pitches of all time, and then charts how Microsoft turned it all around to put Xbox in a strong position to achieve success with the Series X.Continue Reading at GameSpot
