Department of Homelander Security - S04E01-3 – Department of Dirty Tricks, Life Among the Septics, We’ll Keep the Red Flag Flying

The Boys are back for season 4 on Amazon Prime! Mother’s Milk is failing as the CEO. The Deep isn’t to be taken seriously. Homelander is aging and hating every second of it. What is Frenchie’s deal? In the first three episodes of the new season, Jim and A.Ron have found plenty of shock, cringe, and mayhem already!

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022)

The awesome presence of Chadwick Boseman is definitely missed, but don’t let that get you too down! Marvel produces yet another gem (or Infinity Stone, ha ha) for their catalog. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is an action-packed movie that also explores delicate levels of grief AND delivers on great CGI. The astounding performances from Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, and Lupita Nyong’o will have you saying, “Wakanda Forever”!
Our next First Run movies will be Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Avatar: The Way of Water!

Black Adam (2022)

Ok. Um, ok. Here we go. DC hasn’t quite cracked the Marvel formula for making fun movies. It begs the question, can the most charismatic man on the planet pull off DC’s latest deep cut? Black Adam owes some copyright fines to all those superheroes that you actually like. It’s not great, but it bolsters the Rock’s standing in the Bald Move Badass Hall of Fame…so there’s that!

Keep watch for the next First Run movies, Wakanda Forever and The Fabelmans!

Department of Homelander Security - S03E08 – The Instant White Hot Wild

Ouch. A lot of people avoided becoming chunky salsa, and we’re actually disappointed. The episode had to pack in A LOT of information to wrap up the season full of psychopaths and potential patricide. Between the smackdowns, The Deep’s stoic murder felt too tame and that’s when we know that The Boys has corrupted our brains. And, um, where did Stan Edgar go?! Next season looks like it might be a return to a similar place as Season 2.

Department of Homelander Security - S03E07 – Here Comes a Candle to Light You to Bed

What happens when you cross demented nursery rhymes and Empire Strikes Back? This episode of The Boys. With the members of the show living out different plot lines, it doesn’t quite feel like the boys are back in town. But that doesn’t stop the classic “Boys” antics of beating the living daylights out of each other. We’re seeing great characterization of Soldier Boy and the not so great use of the “Chris Pratt calming right hand” technique and we’re asking you to stop.

Department of Homelander Security - S03E04 – Glorious Five Year Plan

Homelander is…just the worst. Everyone seems to have some sort of plan, but not telling other people the plan…maybe that’s why it’ll take a whole five years to execute? Butcher is crunching V24 and gearing up for a fight with an opponent that may not be as super as expected. And if you want Jim and A.Ron to believe a character is dead, you better show the corpse. The tools are present to cripple and de-power Homelander, but is it possible?
