B1G has three huge conference games this weekend that could determine who leads the conference from the start and Brad Crawford gave his prediction for all three games:

  • Michigan vs. Maryland
  • Ohio State vs. Wisconsin
  • Michigan State vs. Minnesota

Michigan and Maryland have both been on fire lately on offense, but Crawford seems to think it will be the Wolverines and their offense that will emerge victorious, 38-24. Sounds like a high score affair.

Wisconsin is coming off a rebounding victory after losing a heartbreaker to Washington State. Now the Badgers must open conference play against Ohio State, which has been in tears offensively since the victory over Notre Dame to open the season. Crawford thinks the Buckeyes will beat the Badgers, 38-17.

Like Wisconsin, Michigan State is also coming off a loss, but unlike the Badgers, the Spartans will open B1G play with Minnesota. Although the Gophers aren’t Ohio State, it still won’t be an easy game for the Spartans, but Crawford thinks Michigan State will somehow pull this game off in a thriller, 31-30.

All games are district openings at 7 p.m. on Fridays, unless otherwise specified

1. District 6AI-2: Union No. 2 to No. 6 Owasso

Perspectives : A clash of teams that have combined to win three of the last six state titles.

Recordings: Union 3-0, Owasso 1-2

Key match: Quarterbacks – Union’s Shaker Reisig was very effective in each of his three games. He completed 51 of 74 passes for 655 yards and five touchdowns. Owasso’s Mason Willingham is 48 of 82 for 579 yards with three touchdowns and rushed for 198 yards and two touchdowns.

Notable: The two head coaches, Union’s Kirk Fridrich and Owasso’s Bill Blankenship, were once their opponent’s head coaches. Fridrich led Owasso to the semi-finals in his only season there in 2006 before moving to Union. Blankenship won three state titles in 14 years (1992-2005) at Union.

People also read…

Series history: Union have won seven of the last 10 meetings, including 10-7 in overtime last year, although Owasso is 3-2 in the last five games, starting with a 21-14 win in the final 2017 National Championship. Earlier in 2017, Union won 44-41 in double overtime in Week 4.

2. 6AII-2: Muskogee #6 to Sand Springs #7

Perspectives : This is the most anticipated game between these teams since their 2016 classic.

Recordings: Muskogee 3-0, Sand Springs 2-1

Key players: Muskogee QB Jamarian Ficklin completed 55 of 80 passes for 904 yards and nine touchdowns. Ficklin’s breakthrough game came against the Sandites last year when he passed for 398 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-34 loss. Sand Springs running back Kenneth Page had 363 yards and eight touchdowns.

Series history: The Sandites have won the last two meetings after Muskogee have won three in a row. This followed the 2016 thriller when Sand Springs prevailed after one of the most famous 2-point conversions in program history resulted in a 26-25 comeback win at Muskogee. The victory propelled the Sandites to the top spot in the 6AII standings. Their first meeting was Muskogee’s 20-0 victory in 1953.

3. 6AI-1: Enid at #3 Jenks

Perspectives : With several starters expected after being sidelined, this is a chance for Jenks to revive his offense after driving in just 30 points in the first three games.

Recordings: Enid 2-1, Jenks 2-1

Key players: Enid’s Tykie Andrews has caught six touchdowns this season โ€“ two in each of the first three games. Jenks receiver Ty Walls had four catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns โ€” all in the first half โ€” in the 49-6 win over Enid last year.

Series history: Jenks leads 9-3 with nine straight wins, including 28-7 in the 2006 6A State Finals.

4. A-5: Hominy #7 vs. Pawnee #10

Perspectives : The most anticipated encounter between these longtime rivals since Hominy’s 36-33 victory in the 2017 playoffs.

Recordings: Hominy 3-0, Pawnee 3-0

Key players: Hominy quarterback Jaxon Woods had 297 yards and four touchdowns in the Bucks’ 27-22 win at Pawhuska heading into last week’s opener. Pawnee’s Jacob Warnock had 37 carries for 239 yards and five touchdowns in a 66-55 win over Meeker last week.

Series history: Pawnee has won three in a row, including 44-36 last year. The series dates from 1932.

5. 3A-4: Holland Hall at No. 5 Cascia Hall

Perspectives : It’s their 55th meeting since the series began in 1966, but the first time they’ve met in a district game.

Recordings: Holland Hall 0-3, Cascia Hall 2-1

Key match: The Commandos’ Blue Swarm defense against Holland Hall’s offense, which has produced just one touchdown this season.

Series history: Cascia leads 34-20 and has won seven of the last 11, but Holland Hall won 45-7 last year.

The best of the rest

5A-4: Bishop Kelley (0-3) at Rogers (3-0): The last time the Comets started 0-3 was in 2010 โ€“ then they beat Rogers in Week 4. Last year, Kelley beat Rogers 55-34.

6AI-1 #1 Bixby (3-0) to #7 Norman North (2-1): He looked like a match-of-the-week candidate until Norman North’s 28-23 loss last week to the previously winless Yukon.

3A-4: No. 10 Central (3-0) to No. 1 Verdigris (3-0): A good measuring stick for Central, who also started 3-0 last year but lost 48-6 to Verdigris.

5A-3: Glenpool (2-1) v Coweta No. 3 (3-0): They meet for the first time since Coweta’s 41-22 win in 2019.

4A-3: No. 4 Wagoner (1-2) at Skiatook (1-2): Wagoner won the Battle of the Bulldogs last year, 34-14.

The protagonist is Ali, a prince who receives a magic bracelet that allows him to summon four elemental spirits with different powers and characteristics that are practical enough to defeat enemies and overcome the challenges offered by the game.

Alisia Dragoon was a platform game released in 1992. The player is Alisia, the young girl who follows with her father’s heart an adventure to save the world. In doing so, she will have to harness her magical powers and the help of four magical creatures.

What do you think of the new additions to Sega Megadrive for Nintendo Switch Online Plus add-on subscribers?

Sega confirms three new ‘Yakuza’ games https://iwantobelieve.com/sega-confirms-three-new-yakuza-games/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 13:03:26 +0000 https://iwantobelieve.com/sega-confirms-three-new-yakuza-games/ Sega has confirmed three new Yakuza games, including the next chapter of the main game and two new spin-offs โ€“ watch the trailers below: After much speculation and a slow drip feed of information, including images and Ichiban’s return, Yakuza 8 (A.K.A like a dragon 8) has now been confirmed to be released in 2024.

Sega has confirmed three new Yakuza games, including the next chapter of the main game and two new spin-offs โ€“ watch the trailers below:

After much speculation and a slow drip feed of information, including images and Ichiban’s return, Yakuza 8 (A.K.A like a dragon 8) has now been confirmed to be released in 2024.

The sequel to Yakuza 7 will see Kiryu star alongside Ichiban and, according to executive producer Masayoshi Yokoyama, “will be the greatest (Yakuza) game to date.

โ€œThe game is about Kiryu having his whole past on his back and Ichiban having his whole future ahead of him. We felt we had to bring Kiryu back for this theme,โ€ he continued before adding that the game is still in development. “We are still recording the lines.”

Ahead of the Tokyo Game Show, Sega also confirmed two Yakuza derivative securities. The first one, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Blotted His Namewill follow the story of former gangster Kiryu Kazuma from the events of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life until Like a dragon 8.

Currently slated for release in 2023, Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Blotted His Name will be a game on a smaller scale than the main entries in the Yakuza series, and will return to the action-adventure brawl gameplay of previous games, as opposed to the RPG combat of Yakuza 8.

The second Yakuza the spinoff is Like a Dragon: Ishin which is due out in February 2023 and is RGG Studio’s first title to be built on Unreal Engine 4.

According to PlayStation’s announcement, “Like a Dragon: Ishin is an action-adventure historical thriller set uniquely in 1860s Kyo, a fictionalized version of Kyoto. While other games tell stories from earlier in Japanese history, Ishin lets you uncover the story of the demise of the iconic samurai era. Our hero, Sakamoto Ryoma, is a true historical figure widely credited with overthrowing the shogunate and leading Japan into sweeping reform.

After the presentation, Sega also revealed that Ryu Ga Gotoku Judgement and judgment lost the games are getting a surprise launch on PC today (September 14).

In other news, tekken 8 was officially announced during Sony’s State Of Play show last night (September 13).

A dramatic trailer for the upcoming title sees Kazuya and Jin Kazama battling in an atmospheric environment. As the pair clash, they also battle torrential rain, a tornado, lightning, and raging fires.

The tekken 8 logo then emerges from a broken and burning chain. A message below the graphic tells players to “stay tuned” for further updates. The release date of the new game is not yet known.

10 Games You Would Never Expect To Be This Good On Steam Deck https://iwantobelieve.com/10-games-you-would-never-expect-to-be-this-good-on-steam-deck/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 20:05:00 +0000 https://iwantobelieve.com/10-games-you-would-never-expect-to-be-this-good-on-steam-deck/ When the Steam Deck was announced, it seemed like a more than capable mid-range gaming PC.

When the Steam Deck was announced, it seemed like a more than capable mid-range gaming PC. However, now that it’s been out for a while, anyone who’s spent time with the device will be able to tell you that the Steam Deck is capable of running games that were thought impossible for a portable device of its specifications.


Related: Best RPGs To Play On A Steam Deck

Additionally, the Steam Deck also has the ability to dramatically improve your dealings with certain games. Whether it’s being able to run a classic at 60fps or playing the new triple-A game on your bus to work, you’ll often be giddy to be able to play these games in this form.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

ten Half Life 2

Half-Life has always been a PC series at heart – the first game revolutionized first-person shooters by harnessing the power of personal computers while the sequels (alongside Counter-Strike) could very well well be credited with the success of Steam.

Although these games all had console ports, they never felt at home there. Something about controllers never matches the pacing of the action and games often go wrong. That’s why it’s so shocking that Gordon Freeman’s many misadventures feel so good on the Deck. Maybe it’s twenty years of being able to tinker with dead zones and analog stick acceleration, maybe it’s the ability to use trackpads for a more mouse-like look. But either way, it makes reading these classics almost new.

The harrowing mayhem of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance pushed Xbox 360 and PS3 to their limits (and often beyond), resulting in one of the best character action games ever set in moments of chaotic game.

However, if you played the “Boosted FPS” version of this game through Xbox Backward Compatibility, you will now be able to see the true intentions of the developers for this game. Additionally, through the Steam Deck, you can exceed the original ambitions from Platinum with a silky smooth thriller ride and taking Revengeance into the unknown. Or you can just play it in bed.

This spot could have gone to any of the great open world games that were released on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles and somehow still look great and run well on the Steam Deck. ; Assassin’s Creed: Origins, The Witcher 3, Red Dead Redemption 2. But none of these see more life brought back to them by the Steam Deck than Metal Gear Solid 5.

Playing what is almost unquestionably the most polished and systemic stealth action gameplay ever (the story is much more debatable), on a device barely larger than a Switch is something to behold. Be warned though, you might find yourself sad about the fate of the franchise after returning to this or Revengeance.

seven lamb worship

Cult of The Lamb is here to represent all the little indie games that are taken to the next level with the Deck. It also represents one of the few games on this list that is not “verified” for use on the Steam Deck. However, just like a shocking number of games labeled “playable” or “unknown” on the Deck, Cult of The Lamb not only runs flawlessly on the system (if you’re willing to play with certain settings), it might just be the best place to play it.

Related: Best Unsupported Steam Deck Games

While the Switch version of Cult of The Lamb is doing well, it’s been held back by long loading times and a few issues not seen on PC. On the Deck, you get the best of both worlds, and it’s so good!

6 Apex Legends

Of course, Apex works great here, it works great everywhere (even on Switch, all things considered). The reason Apex is here is because of the quality of the Wi-Fi on Steam Deck.

Although you can plug your Deck into a USB hub and plug in an Ethernet cable that way, most people will use their Deck wirelessly. Whether it’s download speeds, in-game pings, or matchmaking times, getting into games with good and stable connections feels a lot less of a hassle on the Steam Deck than on something like the Switch.

5 Totally accurate combat and takedown simulator

These games might look totally different, but the two are grouped together here because they center around two simulations that are extremely demanding on the hardware to manage. Totally Accurate Battle Simulator lets you throw countless AIs at each other, while Teardown is a voxel-smashing sandbox.

Yes, once you really start spawning farmers to fight the Romans or placing a load of C4 in a wooden house, the framerate tanks in those two gamesbut they almost never crash. You won’t be able to help but laugh as your handheld slows to single-digit frames per second just to recover and continue.

4 Tales of Arise

JRPGs belong to handhelds. Pokemon, Persona, Fire Emblem. All of these games are at their best when you can cut down their lengthy campaigns and myriad side-activities on the go.

While any of the ever-growing JRPGs on Steam could go here, Tales of Arise takes this slot to also be leagues beyond what most other handhelds are visually capable of. Its combat is engaging, its story sprawling, and it’s great fun. Everything a JRPG should be.

3 Doom (2016) and Doom Eternal

It would be almost unfair to compare these two games to their Switch counterparts. These ports are incredible technical achievements, but after playing the two recent Doom games almost entirely uncompromisingly on the Steam Deck, it’s nigh on impossible to go back to the Nintendo versions of these games.

Related: Best FPS game on the Steam Deck

Doom is a classic, and now you can have all the epic single-player demon-slaying goodness you could want at your fingertips at all times.

2 All Sony Proprietary Games

The first first-party Sony games that arrived on PC encountered performance issues. However, now that the publisher has more titles under its belt and acquired PC port house Nixxes, these ports have become the ultimate way to experience games like Horizon Zero Dawn, Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War and all. what is to come. .

Being able to play the best of the PS4 library on the go, at this level of fidelity would have been unthinkable even five years ago, but the Steam Deck makes it look easy.

1 Ring of Elden

The best thing about the Steam Deck is how it allows for small game sessions. Instead of banging your head against a wall for hours in a soul, sometimes it is enough to do one or two races a day, to get better and better without exhausting yourself.

A lot of times when you’re playing Elden Ring and getting your ass kicked by Malenia Blade of Miquella over and over and over again, you just need a break. The Deck lets you do that, maybe load up some Vampire Survivors, put it to sleep, and stretch your legs. Maybe, just maybe, all you need is a change of scenery, take your Deck outside, find a nice place to sit, and suddenly you’ll be a lot less frustrated dying, again and again and again.

Review of Patrick Mahomes performances in season openers https://iwantobelieve.com/review-of-patrick-mahomes-performances-in-season-openers/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 11:00:00 +0000 https://iwantobelieve.com/review-of-patrick-mahomes-performances-in-season-openers/ As the Chiefs prepare to open their 2022 campaign in Glendale against the Arizona Cardinals, we look back at past season openers.

As the Chiefs prepare to open their 2022 campaign in Glendale against the Arizona Cardinals, we look back at past season openers.

I sat here for a while and thought about how to start this post. Overthinking is often the deadliest poison to a writer’s mind and flow. The answer was right in front of me, but I was trying to concoct something Shakespearean to ignite an emotional connection to this piece with drops of curious foreshadowing to keep you mentally engaged. What am I thinking? I know my audience and I know all I have to say are three sweet, sweet words.

Football is back.

I don’t know about you, but seeing my social media calendars flooded with college football updates, scores, strikes and memes kept me in a continued state of football bliss this weekend. As a footballer, I have felt the anguish and sense of deprivation emanating from all my footballing brothers and sisters over the past few months. You have to understand, however, that going from the depths of football depravity to the overstimulation of total football immersion can be a shock to the system. Let me help you relax.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the Kansas City Chiefs will travel to Glendale, Arizona this weekend to face Kyler Murray, Kliff Kingsbury and the Arizona Cardinals to open the season. 2022. The Chiefs enter Week 1 after a 12-5 regular season in 2021 that saw Kansas City advance and host the AFC Championship for a fourth straight year before falling to the Cincinnati Bengals to end the game. their run in a third straight Super Bowl appearance.

The Cardinals are coming off a 2021 season that could be classified as the definition of hot and cold. They sprinted out of the gate in 2021, starting 7-0 with wins over playoff teams in the Titans, Rams and 49ers before heading into their bye week 9-2, atop the NFC. After the bye? The Cardinals were 2-4 and limped (literally and figuratively) into a Wild Card playoff berth. Their playoff series would be brief, as the Cardinals were eliminated by division rival and eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round.

While the Chiefs kicking off in the desert is certainly the highlight of the week for Chiefs Kingdom, the rest of the league is buzzing with excitement to get things going as well. The aforementioned Rams will have their first chance to show off their Super Bowl bling to the world as they welcome this year’s Super Bowl betting favorite, the Buffalo Bills, to kick off the season on Thursday night. Around the league on Sunday, the excitement is in a couple of divisional matchups (Pittsburgh at Cincinnati, New England at Miami) as well as Tom Brady and the Buccaneers heading to Jerry’s World to face Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys.

Around AFC West, we’ll get a glimpse of the revamped Raiders and Chargers rosters in their first slugfest of the year – a rematch of the Week 18 thriller for the latest AFC Playoffs spot – so as the Raiders cross the desert on I-15 in Los Angeles to take on Justin Herbert and the hip Chargers. To cap off the week, new Bronco Country resident Russell Wilson will travel with his new team to Seattle to face his old team, the Seahawks.

Back to the important part. Patrick Mahomes will lead a new Chiefs offense in their battle with the Cardinals with both excitement and uncertainty. Excitement because this is arguably the deepest receiving corps Mahomes has had to hand in his 5 years as the Chiefs’ starting QB, and uncertainty because the one constant in those previous groups (Tyreek Hill) is no longer there. Either way, the Chiefs come into the year with a young offensive line off the back of a massively successful first season billed as one of the best in the league in 2022, along with groups of running backs and running backs. tight ends reloaded.

Defensively, the Chiefs will rely heavily on a clinic-spurred youth movement that GM Brett Veach appears to have implemented in the 2022 NFL Draft. The Chiefs will have rookies contributing at all levels of defense, George Karlafits up front to Leo Chenal in the middle, complemented by Trent McDuffie, Bryan Cook, Jaylen Watson and others contributing at the back of the unit. While the unit appears to be fast and exciting, it will undoubtedly take time for them to gel on the court with opposing attacks firing live balls in the regular season.

While we don’t know exactly how all the pieces, especially the new ones, will fall into place during the 2022 regular season, we do know how head coach Andy Reid has prepared the team to open the regular season historically. . . This answer: dominant.

In Andy Reid’s nine seasons as Chiefs head coach, KC is 8-1 in the opening games of the season averaging an 8.9-point margin of victory. The Chiefs averaged 31.7 points per game in the season openers – 36.3 in the Mahomes era – and only managed to cover twice in that span. .

Learn more about the Mahomes era. Since Mahomes is the starting quarterback, the Chiefs haven’t lost on Opening Day. In his 4 Day 1 starts, Mahomes had 1,182 passing yards and 13 touchdowns with no interceptions. Let’s take a look at those four games and performances so we can take a look at Sunday’s opener against the Cardinals.

As summer draws to a close, our team takes a look at the rest of the movies coming in 2022. Here, we discuss our top five picks!

It’s September, and that means the start of fall movie season (though we’re still waiting for the summer heat to give us a break). From blockbusters, family films to Oscar contenders, the final months of the year are almost always filled with movies for everyone to enjoy.

As we’ve done for the past few years, we’ve tasked some of our staff with picking the movies they’re most looking forward to seeing for the rest of the year:

Jordan

Avatar: The Way of the Water โ€“ I shamelessly adore James Cameron’s Avatar. It’s a movie in (semi) regular rotation for me. I know it’s not for everyone, and over the years it’s become somewhat popular to hateโ€ฆ But folks, a movie doesn’t become the highest-grossing movie of all time, while establishing the record for the fastest movie to $1 billion without many people taking advantage of it. Either way, I can’t wait to finally get back to Pandora and see if Cameron can find that magic again.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever โ€“ I was already looking forward to seeing the Black Panther sequel, not only because it’s a Marvel movie, but I’m really curious to see how they are going. Based on that ridiculously impressive first trailer, my hype has reached dangerous levels. Their handling of the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman is respectful and I’m already dreading the amount of tissues I’m going to need to get through this.

Halloween ends – The Halloween reboot movies have been pretty darn awesome. The first in 2018 is almost a blueprint for how horror reboots should be handled. While not everyone was so thrilled with Halloween Kills, I enjoyed it for the gnarly kills and overall story expansion. I can’t wait to see if these filmmakers can hold the landing with this trilogy. The trailer was damn awesome, so let’s keep our fingers crossed!

The female king โ€“ I know the wait for this one isn’t very long now, but The Woman King absolutely deserves a spot on this list. From the first images, this movie caught my attention, and the trailer continues to impress. I’ve seen it many times, but recently caught it in theaters on the big screen and got chills the whole time.

Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro โ€“ I’ll be the first to tell people, I’m not necessarily a big fan of the Pinocchio story. I’ve seen all kinds of versions of it, but none really work for me. That said, I LOVE Guillermo del Toro and I LOVE stop-motion animation. Combining the two together, bringing a unique style/flair, led me to give this version of the story a watch.

The Banshees of Inisherin – The last time director Martin McDonough reunited with Colin Ferrell and Brendan Gleeson (In Brugge), it was spectacular. Since then, the director known for his charming black comedies has stepped out of his comfort zone (Three billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri), and THAT movie was great too. I’m very excited to see what he does next. This one feels more like a return to his roots, but will definitely incorporate everything he’s added to his craft since then. Add rising star Barry Keoghan into the mix and you have all the ingredients for an entertaining, impactful and unique film.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever โ€“ Everyone is interested to see how Ryan Coogler, the director of one of the most heralded Marvel movies to date, continues without Chadwick Boseman for the sequel. I’m intrigued to see how it not only builds on what it’s achieved so far, but whether the film surpasses its predecessor. They could have easily said they weren’t going to do another one, but they did. It’s a very difficult task, but Coogler is an incredible talent and I can’t wait to see what he and his team can do.

Avatar: The Way of the Water โ€“ Ah yes, the sequel we’ve been waiting for 10 years, but no one seems really excited. For my part, I am intrigued. Maybe not excited, but interested enough. First off, I’m a huge James Cameron fan and will pay to see anything he deems worthy of attaching his name to. But second, and most importantly, Cameron has held this position before. In fact, all of his films felt like they had some sort of general suspicion towards them before they were released, only to become huge, massive hits. I want to see how he outdoes himself again.

Babylon – Speaking of directors whose movies have been nothing but fantastic, Damien Chazelle has a new movie coming out starring Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt. But more than a stellar cast and director, the premise of this movie is what REALLY excites me. It will be a period drama set in Hollywood as the film industry grapples with the transition from silent films, something that has always fascinated me. With so many movies obsessed with Hollywood’s Golden Age or the 60s/70s, I can’t wait to see this period displayed on the big screen.

amsterdam โ€“ David O. Russel’s star has lost a bit of its shine over the years, but I’m still interested in his work. I’m a big fan of historical dramas and mysteries, and this movie seems to be both. I also love classic noir, and the 1930s setting of this movie puts it right in the middle of that time period and I want to see how the movie incorporates those elements. Add an incredible cast (as usual for Russel films) and you have something intriguing on many levels.

Don’t worry darling – Of all the movies coming out this fall, don’t worry darling is one of the films that intrigues me the most. I’ve been a big fan of Florence Pugh ever since I saw her in Midsommar and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the table with this story. Every time I see the trailers for this movie I feel like there’s a big secret hidden in plain sight and I’m curious to see what that secret is.

Halloween ends โ€“ After the bomb thrown at the end of halloween killsI can’t wait to see how the story that started in 2018 ends with Halloween ends. While I still think the original movie is the best, I love how Michael Myers and Laurie Strode’s story has been rebooted and reworked. I’m also very interested in seeing this movie because I’m not entirely convinced that the story is going to have a “happy” ending, it’s the world of Halloween after all.

The menu – I first saw the trailer for The menu a few months ago and ever since, I have been intrigued by the film. It follows a young couple who travel to a remote location to dine at an obscenely exclusive restaurant where it’s very clear there’s something wrong with the chef or the kitchen. While I’m pretty sure I know what the twist is, the story seems intriguing enough that I want to check it out anyway.

Black Adam โ€“ I confess that I’m a sucker for just about any movie that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in. I don’t know much about the character black adambut the trailers look really cool and maybe that’s enough for me to give the DCEU another look.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish – Puss in Boots is one of my favorite characters Shrek sequels, so naturally I’m very interested in seeing Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which sees the swaggering cat in a predicament as it reaches the last of its nine lives. Puss ends up embarking on one last adventure when he finds himself being chased by Goldilocks and the Three Bears crime family (yes, really). It looks like a really fun movie and I can’t wait to see it.

Clerk III โ€“ Kevin Smith’s film is not perfect. But what is clear to me, as someone who has reviewed the View Askew-niverse movies in preparation for Clerk III, is that he loves his characters and can generally write an entertaining and never boring movie about people talking around them. Her love for Dante and Randall (the protagonists of Clerks franchise) is pretty infectious and I can’t wait to pull out my “I’m not even supposed to be here today” counter and see where they go next!

triangle of sadness โ€“ I don’t know much about this movie because I refuse to watch the trailer for everything to be a surprise. What I do know is that it’s an upper-class black comic satire that’s unsettling, disturbing and perhaps hard to watch at times and won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2022. Sign . Me. At the top.

Bizarre: the story of Al Yankovic – I’ve loved Weird Al for as long as I can remember. I finally got to see him in concert for the first time this year and it was fantastic. I usually don’t like biopics, but this one seems to be, in Weird Al fashion, a parody of the biopic and will have a lot of fun with the format. Plus, these days, Daniel Radcliffe barely signs for anything that doesn’t really take big risks and swing for the fences.

women who talk โ€“ Sarah Polley directs this film which could well be the complete opposite of another film on my list, Clerk III. Although I might take the title too literally. This has an incredible cast list including Rooney Mara, Claire Foy, Jessie Buckley and more and appears to be about a group of women in a religious colony discussing what to do when given a choice between forgiving the men who violated or be excommunicated and therefore lose heaven. It promises to be poignant and moving.

Glass onion: a mystery at loggerheads โ€“ More Benoรฎt Blanc. That’s all.

jesse

Blond โ€“ I don’t know if the September release date for this first Netflix has changed, but I’m very interested in seeing this film adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ fictional novel, Blond, loosely based on Marilyn Monroe. I have almost finished reading the novel and it is raw and poetic. It’s not a biopic but a work of art in its own right. I think Marilyn would be just as intrigued as we are.

don’t worry darling โ€“ Even though it’s one of my pet peeves that everyone seems to worship Harry Styles (I know, it’s stupid of me), I love Florence Pugh and I think everything she touches pays off. She seems like such a dedicated, talented and hard worker; I really admire him. Also, on a more superficial level, I love the vintage setting and costumes paired with thriller themes for this movie. Fun and scary. I hope it will not disappoint you.

Bizarre: the story of Al Yankovic โ€œWhatever I feel for Harry Styles, know that I feel the opposite for Daniel Radcliffe. I love Dan Radcliffe’s activities. He throws caution to the wind, dances to the beat of his own drum, and takes crazy, wonderful risks. I’ll be waving the Dan flag high and can’t wait to see this.

Hocus Pocus 2: Hocus Pocus is obviously on the Halloween watch list every year, and I expect Hocus Pocus 2 will join him soon. While I don’t think the sequel will quite live up to the first movie, how can you not be thrilled to see three of our favorite witches reunited all these years later?!

The menu: Because Anya Taylor-Joy. My eyes have been on her since The Queen’s Gambit. Ralph Fiennes is also a bonus.


There’s no shortage of great movies to watch in recent months (both on the big screen and at home). What movies are you most looking forward to seeing?

Collingwood big man Mason Cox has revealed he originally thought he would retire at the end of the season before winning a mid-year reprieve for the senior team, also confirming that he had hit a trigger in his contract to stay at the Magpies in 2023.

The 31-year-old’s AFL future was in question earlier this year, including playing just two games in the first two months of the season.

But Cox got a recall against Fremantle in Round 10 – usually due to Brodie Grundy’s PCL injury several weeks before creating an opening – with the American’s return coinciding with the Pies’ epic turnaround in their season, winning their next 11 matches.

And Cox, while not having the same impact as Pies ruckman Darcy Cameron, has enjoyed an improvement in form since returning to the senior squad to hit a games trigger clause, including a dominant performance for the Queen’s birthday as Collingwood climbed into the top four.

Talk to foxfooty.com.auCox opened up about his unexpected twist of fate and how he set up contingencies for his next move after soccer.

“I’ve reached a goal for next year, so hopefully I’ll play here (Collingwood). Obviously there is always a chance that something will change no matter what, but at the moment I have a contract here next year,โ€ he said. foxfooty.com.au during a media opportunity at the AIA Center.

“I didn’t really think it would happen at the start of the year, to be honest I thought I would probably retire at the start of the year.

“We played Brisbane in the fifth leg, I didn’t play very well and my brother was in town. I had a conversation with him wondering what I should do. He said to pull the best out of the next 18 weeks left in the season and then you’ll find out, and start putting some running boards on so you can have something to walk in.

“I started a podcast, started doing a bit more radio and media – that’s something I’m passionate about. It helped me have something to come back to outside of the AFL and football that you know you enjoy and can turn away from.

“It’s helped me in a way to play better on the court and have a more enjoyable experience all around. Playing games and winning definitely helps, but for a decent amount of time I thought, if at the end of the year they don’t give me a contract and nobody else wants, that’s all, and I’d be pretty proud of what I’ve achieved.

โ€œThings change and people get hurt. People keep telling me that football is a marathon, not a sprint. I was lucky to have another opportunity and to be able to show what I am worth. I was so grateful to be able to have this, and it makes you think back to some of those times when things were fleeting.

It comes as Collingwood prepare to take on Fremantle in a do-or-die semi-final on Saturday night at the MCG after the Pies narrowly fell to Geelong by just six points in an epic qualifying final thriller.

Cox was limited to just 46% of playing time against the Cats, but has already had a knack for coming out on top in the playoffs, including his seismic 2018 preliminary final performance against Richmond.

When asked if he has another great post-season performance in him, Cox replied, “I hope so,” with a big smile. “But time will tell as they say.”

The 211cm giant admits he’s always enjoyed performing on the September stage and just maximizing every opportunity that comes his way.

“Sometimes on the big stage you sit and think, ‘f***, how good is that? Let’s make the most of this thing. That’s probably where I got that from,'” he said. -he says.

โ€œI love these experiences. These are very small moments in your life that occur and you should try to make the most of them.

“I still find it funny, because I didn’t even know what the AFL was and now I’m immersed in this baptism of fire of Melbourne media, scrutiny and support and all that goes with it. .

“For me, it’s just an incredible life experience more than anything, it’s about travel and being able to play in the AFL.”
