Have You Taken A Pamphlet?

Thor-Ragnarok-Reviews-KorgSPOILERS FOR THOR: RAGNAROK FOLLOW!

By pretty much all accounts, Thor: Ragnarok is another major success for Marvel Studios. The mixture of comedy and the world of the God of Thunder, under the watchful eye of director Taika Waititi, was a combination that somehow worked really well critically and with audiences. There’s a lot to like about Ragnarok, from Chris Hemsworth’s great comic timing, to the Hulk’s excellent action scenes, but the one thing that’s stuck with me the most is one of the smaller characters: Korg.

When Worlds Collide?

Avengers_vs._X-Men_Vol_1_0_Cheung_Variant.jpgA major bombshell has just hit the nerd community: Disney was allegedly in talks to acquire 21st Century Fox.

Now despite what all the headlines are saying, this is far from a done deal. In fact, according to Bloomberg, the talks had been on and off for the past few weeks, but are now dead. But this still means that there’s a chance, regardless of how big, that we could finally see the Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and the X-Men cross paths with the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yes, the talks are dead now, but now that the topic has been brought up, I can’t imagine that Disney wouldn’t try again to at least get the Fantastic Four and X-Men rights back. It would take some creative finagling, but if Marvel’s proven anything, it’s that they can get finaglin’.  Read the rest of this entry

A Great Disturbance In The Force

star-wars-9-colin-trevorrow-825461The latest hit against Lucasfilm came last week: Colin Treverrow will no longer be directing Star Wars Episode IX. While this news comes as a welcome sign for Star Wars fans that weren’t fans of Jurassic World (a film that, for the record, I thought was pretty fun), it puts a weird light on Lucasfilm, especially after the whole Han Solo debacle with Phil Lord and Chris Miller. With a studio that has as much pull as Lucasfilm, how is it that they are so bad at working with directors? Read the rest of this entry

Summer 2017 Wrap-Up!

Ah yes, another Summer has come and gone. And unlike last year, the summer of 2017 was chock full of cool stuff for us to enjoy. From the big screen to the small, there was tons of great entertainment to keep us indoors and out of the sun. So much so, that it’s almost tough to remember all the cool movies, TV, and all kinds of other stuff. Lucky for you I’ve got the list to end all best of summer lists! Read the rest of this entry

What’s In A Cinematic Universe Anyways?

indexWarner Bros has been making quite the headlines lately, with the announcement of a solo Joker movie (produced by Martin Scorsese no less), ANOTHER Joker movie set in the DCEU featuring Jared Leto and Margot Robie, and major updates on the upcoming Matt Reeves directed Batman movie: namely, that it won’t be part of the DCEU film universe, only to then be announced that it IS part of the DCEU universe, but won’t feature other characters from the DC movies.

Go Then, There Are Other Worlds Than These…

21a1f214095078b04808d5dIt’s always interesting to be in the aftermath of something that didn’t live up to your expectations. Now that we live in a post Dark Tower movie world, I’m struggling with what I thought of the movie. Of course, I didn’t think it was a great adaptation, or one even worthy of the name The Dark Tower, but it’s also not as terrible as the reviews would have made it seem. Sony, director Nikolaj Arcel, and even Stephen King himself have made it known the plans for this franchise, but now that the dust has settled and the movie is out, I’m left with one question: what now?

Does Whatever A Spin-Off Can?

indexIt’s widely been known that I have some….misgivings about Sony’s plan to do a bunch of Spider-Man spin-off films without the Wall Crawler. I was about to go on another rant about how idiotic it is to have Venom movie without Spider-Man, or how you could barely get anyone to care about Black Cat or Silver Sable without introducing them in a Spider-Man movie first, but it appears that I may not have to do that.

The Power of Wonder Woman

WONDER WOMANMINOR SPOILERS

It’s safe to say that WB’s long-awaited Wonder Woman is a massive success. Having raked in just over 100 million dollars and earned a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s easily the film DC fans wanted Batman V Superman to be. But Wonder Woman isn’t just a success for studios, fans of the character, or female audiences, directors, and creators. It’s also a success for diversity as a whole. Read the rest of this entry

What the Hell(Boy)?

hellboy-reboot-david-harbourSo here’s some interesting movie news……Hellboy is getting a movie reboot.

No, your browser didn’t accidentally set to April Fool’s Day. Hellboy, the movie series that Guillermo Del Toro started up based on Mike Mignola’s classic character, is the latest comic property to get an R-rated reboot. With The Descent director Neil Marshall at the helm and Stranger Things’ David Harbour getting ready to slap on the shortened horns, there’s plenty to get you pumped to jump back into Mike Mignola’s world. And while enough time has passed for a reboot, it puts a lot of us in an interesting spot. Read the rest of this entry
