My thoughts on Disney doing more Star Wars, Avatar and the MCU

Yesterday Disney showed a multi-year line-up of movies as part of its ongoing merger with 21st Century Fox. There is plenty to see on the list as the studio owns Star Wars, the Marcel Cinematic universe, its own well-stocked lineup and Avatar. For the latter it has been announced that the first of FOUR sequels […]

Avengers: Infinity War Review – the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe fights Thanos

Avengers: Infinity War Review Finally the long wait is over. For years we have had to hear how Avengers Infinity War would be the ultimate experience the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer. Assembling Earth’s mightiest heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight the often talked about but rarely seen Thanos. Avengers Infinity […]

Black Panther Review – Ryan Coogler succeeds with Afrofuturism

Black Panther Review Finally fans of Black Panther get the movie they always wanted. Personally I knew little about the character before his introduction into the MCU with Captain America Civil War. However, just like with Spider-Man it was a hugely successful introduction. Chadwick Boseman played the role of Crown Prince T’Challa (and then King) with […]

Thor Ragnarok Review – Taika Waititi slam dunks the franchise to success

Thor Ragnarok Review Thor Ragnarok was not the movie I was expecting to see. After reading early reviews I concluded it would be the funniest movie in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Some referred to it as a masterpiece by director Taika Waititi. Personally I just wanted to see a proper sequel to a sub-franchise that had been […]

Jessica Jones Preview – Netflix pours it on with another Marvel show

Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the titular character who runs her own detective agency, Alias Investigations. Show runner Melissa Rosenberg is keen to retain the gritty feels of the Alias comic book series. The comic […]

Ant-Man Review – I don’t feel the excitement from Iron Man or Captain America!

Ant-Man Review Movies set in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) are for me an acquired taste. I found the first Iron Man a bit of an odd duck when I first saw it. I have since come to appreciate most of the main characters of the MCU. Tony Stark’s banter with Pepper Potts, Thor’s with Jane Foster, […]

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review After the so-so first season of Agent of Shield anyone would think that ABC and Marvel got balls for trying to launch another starring Peggy Carter. Peggy is played by Hayley Atwell as the title character. SHIELD may have improved in quality but a show centered on one character, remembered mostly […]

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD Slowly the news is starting to trickle in about the second season of Agents of SHIELD. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2014. I think most people interested can be split into two groups. The first group want to see more of the Marvel Universe because they […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview ***Premiere Update***

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview August 1st it almost upon us, time a Guardians of the Galaxy Preview. Rather unexpectedly we will be getting a science fiction movie featuring a man calling himself Starlord. He is accompanied by talking tree and a foul-mouthed gun toting raccoon. What’s weird is that it is not directed by Joss Whedon. Yet, fans have […]
