Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

This movie is the reason I got Marvel fatigue. It’s not the quality but more so the formula. For years, the studio pumped out cookie cutter films. How many times can heroes fight carbon copies of themselves? Tired of color-coded CG fights where the villain is killed off. Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings is no different. There is no consistent tone. … Continue reading Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

The Eternals (2021) Review

I don’t know why writers use terms like “immortal” when the characters die so easy. Marvel introduced yet another cosmic street gang that live for a long time and never age. It’s enough people in this movie for them to start their own football team. These alien beings were credited as shepherds of humanity throughout history. When old enemies arrived, they teamed up to defend … Continue reading The Eternals (2021) Review

Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) Review

Before we get into the review, my apologies to the AMC employee that had to mop up the pool of nerd sweat I secreted. There was too much cinematic goodness to behold. Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best entry to date. It is the culmination of storytelling for the wise cracking web-slinger going back nearly 20 years. Underage viewers won’t appreciate the nostalgia this … Continue reading Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) Review

Helstrom (2020) Review

We’re keeping with the demonic possession theme. This time we’re exploring a Marvel property in the mature Hulu universe. Helstrom is rated R and all about that violence. It’s a breath of fresh air to see the more occult characters. Daimon and Ana Helstrom are siblings and the offspring of an extremely powerful entity. One that has the human and demon world shooketh. These two … Continue reading Helstrom (2020) Review

The Falcon & Winter Soldier (2021) Episode 6

The finale has arrived along with Sam’s debut as Captain America. After a public execution and shield shaming from Bucky, he’s taken on the mantle. I have to say this episode wasn’t very entertaining to me. The story was predictable, especially with the identity of The Powerbroker. This episode mostly served as a launch vehicle for season 2 and villains that may appear in later … Continue reading The Falcon & Winter Soldier (2021) Episode 6

The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 5

After the episode from last week, I was nervous going into this one. Johnny Walker trippin’ off that super serum and reeling from the death of his partner Battle Star (Clé Bennett). Clearly this dude got PTSD and need help. That is what Sam and Bucky tried to do before the paranoia kicked in. Johnny Walker is an extremely violent man, he fights with such … Continue reading The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 5

The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 4

Listen, to be a super intellectual criminal, Baron Zemo has great customer service skills. He been serving Sam and Bucky like they in a five-star hotel. I know being royalty has its benefits but damn, they living a life of luxury while hunting down the Flag Smashers. Which makes them look like assholes, because despite them being terrorist the F.S. have helped immigrants and poor … Continue reading The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 4

The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 3

Shit got real in “Power Broker.” The Flag Smashers managed to evade the heroes and stay off the radar. Sam, Bucky, and Johnny Walker don’t got no leads and still delirious from the beat down they got last week. In an act of desperation and stupidity, Bucky visited an incarcerated villain for answers. Because you know, nothing bad could happen right? We learned more about … Continue reading The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 3

The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 2

This episode opened with a musical number reminiscent of Drumline. Decorated army veteran, John Walker (Wyatt Russell) answered questions about his role as Captain America. At face value, the guy looks goofy as hell, but don’t be fooled. Something off about dude, from his body language to how he stares off into space. Sam and Bucky reunited on a mission to stop the terrorist organization, … Continue reading The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 2

The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 1

After WandaVision, I decided to go cold-turkey and focus on other television programs. Yet, here I am, back at square one, and grateful. This is the show I didn’t know I needed from the Marvel Cinematic Universe; a glimpse into the everyday life of a hero. The lesser known or least favorite to be specific. Let’s be honest, when you think of The Avengers, Falcon … Continue reading The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 1
