Marvel’s Vanishing Point

What is Marvel doing? They seemed so set on a direction a few years ago. Of the big two, they were the one with its head on its shoulders. Marvel knew what it was and what it wanted to be. But now Marvel is lost, struggling with fan reactions and industry feedback that doesn’t appear…

The Changing Landscape for Blockbusters

Last summer was a relative disappointment as far as box office results are concerned. There were several flops and under performers. So far, this blockbuster season is looking very similar to last. However Wonder Woman will not be counted among those disappointments, that’s assured. The release of Wonder Woman hasn’t had the marketing build up…

Why Wonder Woman Is Great!

Normally, during a movie review, I look for basically three things: how was the story (it all revolves around the story), did it do it’s job (comedy create laughter, etc.), and was it as advertised (movie matches the trailers). But this is not a review. This is an emotional outburst of nerd joy at the artistic…

Xmen ResurrXion: What’s Missing?

Yesterday I featured a post regarding my excitement for the new direction Marvel is taking with its Xmen comicbook franchise. Today, let’s explore some of the things that the Xmen titles could still improve upon in this new ResurrXion era. Sure, I love what I’m seeing and reading so far (keep in mind that all…

Xmen ResurrXion: The New Status Quo

So…Inhumans vs. Xmen is behind us. We’re more than a month deep into ResurrXion, and Marvel is pivoting towards a DC Rebirth style rebranding. As a huge Xmen fan, how am I feeling about the new titles so far? Well…finally I believe Marvel’s on the right track with the Xmen. For the first time in…

Possible Directions of the 5 Game of Thrones Proposed Spinoffs

As a huge Game of Thrones fan, I’ve had a lot to ponder this past week or so. Recently, it was announced that HBO has four possible Game of Thrones spin-off pilot scripts. George R.R. Martin himself confirmed five scripts. Now, this doesn’t mean HBO will order five new GoT based series, but it does…

Tarkin Book Review

The title of this post may be a little deceiving. I don’t know if this would quantify as a review as much as an expression of how I felt about the novel. Let’s not go into too much detail about prose, writing style, and the technicalities. I’m sure you’ll find far more qualified folks out there…

Power Rangers Movie Review

  This film has its problems but it is proof that Power Rangers can work on the big scene. Power Rangers has been that one 90s franchise that despite its age, continues to live on and thrive in some capacity. While never returning to the height it experienced in its first couple of runs, Power…

John Wick Chapter 2 Movie Review

“You wanted me back” –John Wick, John Wick Chapter 2 Yeah, fans of the first John Wick did want a sequel to one of the biggest surprises of 2014. But few sequels seem to be able to stack up to their predecessors. Fear not John Wick fans for that is not the case in this…

Quick Thoughts on WWE Clash of Champions

Overall, this was a good Pay-Per-View Event, in a year of fairly consistent good events. Clash of Champions was the first RAW exclusive event since the brand split. I’m still not sold on the need to have separate PPV events. After watching both Smackdown Backlash and Raw Clash of Champions, it’s clear to see the…
