Written and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is a fast-paced crime thriller overfilling with plenty of humor and music. Centered around a getaway driver named Baby (Ansel Elgort) attempting to pay-off a debt to local gangster (Kevin Spacey), the film is a mix of over-the-top action and characters and much more realistic violence and emotion. At times Wright struggles balancing the two sides of the film, especially in the final act which drags on with multiple epilogues, but when it works it’s a joy to behold.

preacher-on-the-road

After a First Season which was mostly a prequel to the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher returns with Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) hitting the road in search of the missing God. More in-tune with the nihilistic 90s comic series which spawned it, which is both good and potentially bad for the series going forward, the season premiere begins the long road trip for our unlikely threesome while also introduces a new threat in the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) who hunts down the preacher and is willing to kill anyone who gets in his way.

the-wild-storm-2017-5-zealot

With The Wild Storm #5, writer Warren Ellis continues to build out the new universe by re-introducing old characters. The fifth issue gives us Zealot, who like everyone else is searching for Angela Spica but instead runs into an old enemy, a disconnected cameo by Voodoo, and the IO’s premier assassin Michael Cray whose employers want him to do one more job before he succumbs to what is slowly killing him – find Angela. However, even after a brief examination of the facts he can already tell the woman is far more interesting, and far less of a threat, than she seems.

dark-matter-all-the-time-in-the-world

Owing more than a little inspiration from Groundhog Day, the first-half of “All the Time in the World” is perfect. Trapped in a time-loop forcing him to relive the same day over and over again, a frustrated Three (Anthony Lemke) struggles to convince the crew of the Raza what is happening and find a way to break the loop. There are several smart choice here, including starting with Three already stuck in the loop after several days and the use of the “Butterfly Effect” to explain the differences caused by his choices every time through the loop. Then there’s the incredulity of his crewmates and the various ways he attempts, and fails, to convince them of the truth (including learning French). It’s the best use of the concept I’ve seen on television since Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s “Cause and Effect.”
