It’s been a busy one! Here’s a summary of everything in my Super Duper world this week.
An ‘SDSS’ if you will.
Four new reviews for your perusal this week. It’s been a good time for films overall whilst I learnt some important lessons when reviewing this week’s Rebels.

The Accountant – Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematical genius who works as a financial consultant for criminal organizations eager to hide their dirty money. While being investigated by the Treasury Department, Wolff agrees to help an accounting clerk at a robotics firm (Anna Kendrick) look into fraud at her company, but the assignment will prove far more dangerous than he could have ever anticipated.
Storks – Eager to have a younger sibling, a lonely kid (voiced by Anton Starkman) beseeches the storks to deliver a baby to his workaholic parents — despite the fact that the birds have long since gotten out of the baby business, and now courier packages for an Internet merchant. But the discovery of an infant in the warehouse inventory forces the delivery service’s recently promoted stork owner (Andy Samberg) to deliver one last bundle of joy.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – After a family tragedy, a boy named Jake (Asa Butterfield) follows a series of clues that lead him to a mysterious orphanage on a remote Welsh island. There, he discovers a community of children with unusual abilities, and learns he is destined to protect them.
Star Wars Rebels ‘Hera’s Heroes’ – When the Empire occupies Hera’s home, she decides to personally recover a family heirloom. But a new Imperial commander named Grand Admiral Thrawn is waiting.
I try not to think about Christmas too soon, yet there were so many things unveiled this week that it had me wondering if December 25th had come early?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 – Initially I was miffed with the music choice but I’ve warmed up to it since. Plus how can you not be on board after the final shot? Really looking forward to this one.
Logan – Much less a superhero movie and more a movie with superheroes it, Jackman’s final outing is sure to be an emotional one. On this basis hopefully my tears with be of sadness of his leaving and not due to the quality of the film.
Assassin’s Creed – Mortal Kombat is still my favourite video game movie. Can this change that? It’s in a tough position. The games haven’t been special since Ezio hung up his blades and that was years ago now. Can the film recapture that magic?
Red Dead Redemption 2– YES! The first RDR has one of the best endings to any story I’ve ever experienced. There isn’t much to see as we’re a year out but it’s great to know this is on the horizon.
Nintendo Switch – The WiiU was a mess. This trailer might go on a bit but it seems much clearer in it’s message. I really hope it gets a good launch lineup of games. Mario and Zelda need to be there on day one! Out in March, if the good impression continues I might just have to get one.
I had two games of X-Wing this week at my local shop. Two victories! One was even against a regional champion. Sexy times indeed.
After way too long I watched Batman Begins again. I adore that film. Must be 25 or more viewings of it now. Odd to think it’s eleven years old. It might not be comic Batman but Bale is exceptional.
There you go! How did your week go? Anything Super Duper? Let me know in the comments!
