COMIC REVIEW: Image Comics’ Protector Issues 1 & 2!
From IMDb: “Primal features a caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.” What I liked: Since it takes place in primordial times, the show has zero dialog.

From IMDB: “Target in-hand, the Mandalorian must now contend with scavengers” What I liked: Hey, some returning species from the original Star Wars trilogy!

From IMDB: “A bride’s wedding night takes a sinister turn when her eccentric new in-laws force her to take part in a terrifying game.” What I Liked: The dialog in this movie is top-notch.

From IMDB: “A young woman, while attempting to save her father during a category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped in a flooding house and must fight for her life against alligators.” What I liked: It has some of the best “atmosphere” I’ve seen in a while.
