Get a little more media obsessed.

++ Richard Armitage appeared at Sundance this past weekend to promote his new film, The Lodge, a horror film that some are claiming is the new Hereditary so that's something, it also seems to have gotten a distributor so that's pretty exciting news. It was also announced that he will star in the upcoming Netflix thriller, The Stranger, which is an adaptation of a novel by Harlan Coben, which I'm deeply intrigued by. I keep saying this whenever something new is announced, but I'm really happy that he's been branching out into different areas and genres. Granted, horror/thriller is my favorite genre so obviously these projects seem right up my alley, but I'm still happy for him nonetheless. He's also been doing incredibly well with audiobooks, too. I'm always on the look out whenever they get announced because who wouldn't want to listen to something narrated by him?

++ Speaking of audiobooks, Colin Farrell has recently narrated one for James Joyce's novel, A Portrait of the Artist of a Young Man. Much like with Richard, I love Colin's voice and especially with how well-spoken and articulate he is in general. It makes sense that he'd do something like doing an audiobook. He's also doing the narration for a three-part VR animated series, Gloomy Eyes.

++ When it comes to newer shows, I've talked about how a lot of times when they are announced it's a huge hit-or-miss, and I haven't been exactly excited about some of the shows that were announced lately. However, sometimes it takes a while before finding something and it usually unexpectedly springs up on you as something worthwhile to check out. Kingdom is a South Korean thriller drama on Netflix that is essentially a zombie horror story set during the 15th century. I had only found out about it a couple of days before the first season premiered (which was on the 25th, and it's already been renewed for a second season, though I kinda figured that it would be based on what I read about its production), and while I haven't watched it yet I'm deeply intrigued by it. Another upcoming show is Siempre Bruja, a Colombian series that is about a young woman who is sentenced to death for being a witch, but she manages to escape her fate by time-traveling to the future. I'm curious simply after watching the trailer, it looks interesting, it reminds me a bit of Sleepy Hollow, like the whole "fish out of water" and adjusting to modern life sort of thing.

And finally, Miss Sherlock, which already was out since last year but I had just watched the first episode recently. It's a Japanese re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes, but with women as both Sherlock and Watson. I'm just so enamored with it already that I can't wait to continue watching the rest of the series.
