Marvel Movies Ranked 2016

Marvel heroines fight like a girl

Variety recently released a ranking of Marvel’s movies thus far. So, of Kel and I were discussing it and had our own rankings and I decided to post my own list.

Avengers 1. As great as it is, I had a hard time pint The Avengers in the top spot. Because I’ve seen it . . . → more

Captain America: Civil War

Rating: 4 of 5  

I rather feel like I said most everything I needed to in my review of Captain America: Civil War. Because with good movies, words don’t really capture everything that’s done well. It’s the sort of thing you go watch again instead of write about.

I guess the most interesting thing is . . . → more

best tv of 2014

This is perhaps the longest into a new year I’ve waited to post my tv list. The problem was, is, whatever, that I’m not excited about it. Which is more about the tv shows than about the list itself (we all know I think lists are fun).

I sorted through my hulu favorites, as I . . . → more

The thing about SHIELD

I want to like SHIELD, for a number of different reasons. I really do. I think a lot of people want to like it and just… don’t. Or at least not enough.

If you think about it, it should be great. I mean, it’s Joss! Not really but at some level he was in . . . → more

the choices that make or break fandom

Bryan Singer had this article in SciFiNow discussing the comparisons between Avengers and X-Men. And it surprised me how wrong he is about so many things.

First of all, Singer deserves a certain amount of credit for essentially creating the modern comic book film. That’s a post I’ve been meaning to write for ages and . . . → more

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Rating: 3.5 of 5  

There were a lot of things in Captain America: The Winter Soldier that were a lot of fun. Not the least of which is Captain America himself. They’re in my review. But siince it was a little bit political thriller I found myself wishing it was a little more like a Marvel . . . → more

best tv of 2013

A friend asked me this year what my New Years tv marathon would be. I hadn’t really found a good one yet, because I feel like I’ve already seen everything I like. Quite a few times. I’d just finished s5 of Merlin which has been my favorite holiday indulgence for a while so there wasn’t . . . → more

Thor – The Dark World

Rating: 4 of 5  

My review for Thor The Dark World is up.

I don’t know if it’s the presence of Joss Whedon or the increasing pressure from the fans to release a movie about a female superhero but it’s interesting (and encouraging) to see Marvel giving their female characters such integral roles in their movies . . . → more

Iron Man 3

Marvel’s Phase Two shows obvious signs of being post-Avengers. And not just in the characters and the ramifications they have to deal with (Tony Stark, perhaps most of all) but in the studio and writers and directors who have seen what a Joss Whedon superhero movie is and now have to be that good. . . . → more

Event Horizon

It’s been a while since I posted an Event Horizon. Truth be told, after Comic Con and with most of the exciting summer releases out I wasn’t enthralled by much of the news and wasn’t coming across pictures that sparked my interest. And I’m never one to post just for the sake of posting. . . . → more
