TV Review: Daredevil Season Three!

220px-Daredevil_season_3_posterMINOR SPOILERS

I’ll be honest, the last few seasons of the various Marvel Netflix shows have been a bit of a slog. Ever since Defenders, it seemed like all of the various shows, from Luke Cage to Iron Fist to even Jessica Jones started spinning their wheels, and eventually they became to feel like a real slog to get through. Thankfully though, Daredevil‘s third season has come along and not only rejuvenated that show after an uneven second season, it’s also reignited my interest in the other Marvel Netflix shows (well, the remaining ones, that is).

Movie Review: Jurassic World!

Starring: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Jake Johnson, Vincent D’Onofrio

Directed by: Colin Treverrow

Like many people my age, Jurassic Park stands as one of the greatest movies of all time. Hell, I even love the sequel, The Lost World, and can’t understand why people don’t like it (I get the dismissive remarks for Jurassic Park 3 though). Watching Raptors stalk their victims or hearing the T. Rex roar never gets old for me, so naturally I was pretty excited when the long delayed fourth film in the franchise, Jurassic World, was announced. And when Hollywood’s most recent awesome leading man Chris Pratt was cast, I was ecstatic. So, yeah, there’s a fair amount of hype in my brain for Jurassic World, and now it’s time to see how the finished product stacks up. Read the rest of this entry

TV Review: Daredevil Season 1, Episodes 7-13

I’ll be honest, the second half of Marvel’s Daredevil could’ve been 7 episodes of Matt Murdock break dancing while Kingpin beat boxes around him and I’d still give this series a glowing review. Thankfully, the second half of this series is just as good as the first, even with a few minor hiccups here and there. If the first six episodes of Daredevil serve as setting the stage for Matt Murdock and his world, the second half dismantles that world piece by piece, and uncovers secrets behind the Man Without Fear and his nemesis, Wilson Fisk. It also features two of the best episodes of the season: “Stick” and “Shadows In Glass”. Read the rest of this entry

TV Review: Daredevil Season 1, Episodes 1-6

daredevil-posterMILD SPOILERS

Marvel’s Daredevil is dark, gritty, and extremely violent. It’s like nothing else the studio has released. And it’s incredible. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Marvel has done it again, delivering a gripping story that honors the character it’s focused on, and adds to the legacy of Matt Murdock. Ol’ Hornhead has had some incredible stories throughout his 50+ years in comics, and we can now add Drew Goddard, Steven DeKnight, and the rest of the show’s creative team to the Daredevil list that includes writers Ed Brubaker, Brian Michael Bendis, and Frank Miller.
