Give me all the amazing stories of women, if you please.  
++ E3 has been happening, and there's been plenty of trailers of upcoming video game releases, some that I'm pretty excited about. First is the brand new Shadow of the Tomb Raider trailer, since Lara Croft is my girl, obviously, and I'm anticipating what this game will bring. I'm also curious about Cyberpunk 2077, which I remember being announced a long time ago but didn't really hear much of anything since then. Anyway, I'm really into the cyberpunk aesthetics, it looks super dope. Next is Resident Evil 2 which is an updated remake of the classic 1998 game, and apparently it seems that many RE fans have been waiting years for. Much like with the recent Resident Evil 7: Biohazard release, this looks completely atmospheric and immersive. And of course, there's The Last Of Us: Part II gameplay reveal! I think many were waiting for this one the most, and this delivered with having almost twelve minutes of gameplay footage with a few minutes of a cinematic scene, beautifully contrasting each other and I'm just so hype for this game you guys, you don't even know. As a sidenote, I love how Naughty Dog is basically giving the middle finger to all the dudebros who complained about Ellie kissing a girl from the TLOU DLC by further confirming in this gameplay trailer that yep, Ellie is a lesbian, get used to it.

++ I watched Ocean's 8 in theaters and it was super fun. The Ocean's movies in general are just pure enjoyable entertainment of lighthearted heisting shenanigans, and this one is no exception. Without giving away any spoilers, I will say that the ladies were amazing to watch, naturally, but I also want to address that Richard Armitage was absolutely delightful in his role, which the part was a bit bigger than I had initially thought. While he doesn't have a whole lot of scenes, he does play a significant character in the story, and he was just so much fun to watch. Good job, boo! Overall, a very fun and entertaining film that I hope continues on with more movies.

(Also, sidenote, the trailer before the movie was for Widows, another movie with a fantastic cast of women + a surprise Colin Farrell, so y'know I was truly blessed in the theater that day.)

++ Wynonna Earp S3 trailer. I was wondering when we were gonna get anything about the third season, since it felt like forever since anything was announced. This was mostly just an intense montage of things that's a lot to unpack, though I'm just marveling over the fact that it looks very highly produced, just from presentation of the trailer alone. The show returns July 20th.

Although, where the fuck are the season DVDs for this show? Seriously, I've ranted about this before, but it's still bothering me that only ones I could find are international BluRays and the BluRay that is through the IDW IndieGoGo site which, well, seems rather shady considering that many have complained about the quality and lack of response from the people involved in producing them. I just want my freaking DVDs to support the show, that's all.

I love the look of Cyberpunk 2077 so much, but I doubt it's my kind of game. My little corner of the gaming world is all about Jurassic World Evolution at the moment which I feel kinda meh about.

Ocean's 8 is not out in Germany yet. I wanted to watch it with my mother (like Ghostbusters), but she really doesn't like heist movies. I think you'd have to pay her to watch any of the Ocean's movies. It's such an odd thing to dislike. I find that pretty funny.

I know that it's only a cinematic trailer with nothing about the gameplay yet (that I've seen anyway), but Cyberpunk 2077 has the aesthetics down for an interesting kind of world-building that I honestly enjoy. I just want to know more about the story itself and who is involved, the characters, etc. This is a good start at getting us enticed, though.

That's rather...interesting, I should say. I mean, I get that there are certain genres of movies or stories some might not like, but with heist stories there are a lot of variations. There's a difference between something like Mission Impossible where it's more action-packed and something like Ocean's where it's more lighthearted fun. But some are just weird like that with some genres no matter what it is, I suppose.

Either way, I hope you end up enjoying Ocean's 8 when you get the chance to see it. :)
