Candyman is out later in the year, I'll check that out for old time's sake; same as the new Bill & Ted, which looks dogshit, but which I'll probably catch at the movies for ye olde times sake. No homo, but there's a new Hercule Poirot coming out soon and it's directed by Branagh; Poirot will never go away but this might be the first stab at doing him proper. I'll check it out. Overall though, no. There are not a great line of movies coming up, though everyone should prepare for the collective spunking over Dune, which will be shit. November or December I think.

Music, it's interesting, i have absolutely no clue now - I'm taken care of entirely by Spotify which loads up new releases for me on auto. I don't know anything is out until it is out.

Castle Duckula.
Nothing mentioned so far hits me.

Dune looks a mess from that trailer, guess you've got to have read the book

The Boys is awesome, not finished season 1 yet.

The new Batman looks weak, aimed at emo teenagers in their bedroom. Horrible looking trailer.

Not been excited for a Bond film in my lifetime.

Can't think of anything else on the near horizon and I've a load of books to work through before I buy something new.

Watch Dogs Legion is definitely a game I'm looking forward to

Branagh has already done murder on the orient express. I didn't really like it. Much prefer the Albert Finney movie from the 70's.

Branagh is doing Death on the Nile next, which I prefer as a story, but I don't have high hopes.

I didn't like Branagh's version OR his portrayal of Poirot - he came off as just his Wallander character with a silly mustache.

I saw a British TV remake a few years back with David Suchet (who basically IS Poirot as far as I'm concerned) and I thought even that was better than Branagh's version.

I love the Suchet Poirot's, well the longer more "modern" ones. I thought that his Orient Express was one of the weaker episodes, but it's much better than Branagh. You are right though, he is Poirot.

I'm really looking forward to Fable 4 on Xbox. I've been playing these games since the first release on the original Xbox. It's a very underrated series / that quite a bit of people sleep on.
