Two Marvels and a DC

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the chance to watch Marvel’s The Defenders, Marvel’s Punisher, and the newest DCEU (or whatever its official name will become) film Justice Leauge. For what it’s worth, here are my thoughts. I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum (except for The Defenders, that’s been out long […]

Thoughts on the Batman ‘Arkham’ series AND Netflix’s Punisher trailer

So this short post is brought to you by my amazing wife. About two weeks ago for my 30th birthday, she surprised the dickens out of me with a PS4 that came with a game I’ve been wanting to play for years: Batman Arkham Knight – the fourth game in the amazing Arkham series. I […]

Another collection of other thoughts

For reasons shared on One Cross Street, I haven’t had much time to post lately. Let’s just dive right in. I haven’t had a chance to catch The Defenders yet, which I’m looking forward to watching. With all that’s been going on, I’ve been revisiting old shows/ones I’ve already watched a bunch (DS9 (rough first […]

A collection of other thoughts

Another round of overnight blogging. So last week I did post on One Cross Street that I’m going to do again here; like I said in that post things have been crazy busy recently with a lot of exciting things happening. That post was also a lot of fun to do – so I’m going to do […]

Other comic based Netflix series I wish could happen.

I’m *loving* most of the super hero shows on Netflix. In fact, in some aspects I prefer them over the movies to be honest. One of the biggest flaws (with few exceptions) of the MCU films is the lack of time to develop the villains – a problem you don’t get so much with the […]

Wonder Woman was wonderful.

Some titles just write themselves. Wonder Woman is easily the best film of the DCEU, but it deserves a better compliment than that, because frankly that’s not a challenge (Man of Steel was the only one that has been alright so far). Wonder Woman on the other hand  was a really good movie, as well as […]

My current top 10 worst/*most disappointing* comic book movies

Please note that asterisk up there. Some of the ones that I have at the bottom are indeed better films that some of the others, but it is the utter disappointment (be it in treatment or translation of character, for example) that the film gives that makes it (objectively) worse. Yes, Howard the Duck a […]

My current top 10 comic book movies

So this post is based on a list I shared awhile back on instagram – but now I’m gonna talk about why they are ranked this way.  Now upfront this isn’t a top 10 Marvel list (which I might make sometime) and features films from various franchises. It also doesn’t contain any animated movies – […]

For all its faults, I still really dig ‘Superman Returns’.

I’m writing this on a half a screen as I watch Supergirl (not the terrible spin-off movie from the Donner Superman series, the pretty good show on Netflix). Gotta love technology. And as I’m watching Supergirl, I’m like “man, I like this show, I like that it’s light and optimistic – things Superman should be.” […]
