Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2: Same Guardians, Different Galaxy

by

The ’80s music nostalgia, the intergalactic action sequences, and the ingeniously comedic banter between characters are some of the few reasons why the first Guardians of the Galaxy was so enjoyable to watch. This second installment touches on the same successful moves while providing a distinct tone that reveals the unique direction. This tone provides more emphasis into the main characters and harps on some of the same moments that were loved from vol. 1. Instead of a heavy focus on action, this film focuses on the story and character development, introduces some dark elements to mix, and yet keeps the humorous elements that made us love the first film.

Iron Fist Review: Barely Had Any Power in Its Punch

by

This latest Marvel Netflix show before the culmination of these Marvel shows with The Defenders was definitely built on a significant amount of fan hype and justice for the comic book character. Unfortunately, the martial arts superhero show barely had any power in its punch coming off with some decent action sequences and a good supporting character but overall leaving a very lackluster, dull, and structure-less taste.

Why You Should be Watching ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

by

There are a ton of comic book shows to keep up with, and just me, I keep up with them all. But one show that doesn’t seem to get as much love as it deserves, though it has been changing, is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The show struggled to find its footing in the first season and has its ups and downs, but you have to stick with it. Trust me. This latest season has an established cast that meshes well together. Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy, Iain De Caestecker as Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Simmons, and Henry Simmons as Mack, as well as every other cast member, work so well together. And lord knows my heart is hurting after Nick Blood (Lance Hunter) and Adrianne Palicki (Bobbi Morse) left the show. (Only because they are off to another stand-alone Marvel show that of course I’m going to watch.)

‘Deadpool’ Review

by

Hi, I’m movie blogger, Emilio Giron, and I’m writing about a modestly budgeted superhero movie titled Deadpool.  It stars reasonably handsome color book enthusiast turned super actor Ryan Reynolds. He plays the movie’s titular character, Deadpool, aka Wade Wilson, Marvel Comic’s “Merc with a Mouth.”  Like most romance movies, this is the usual run-of-the-mill Valentine’s ...

Why You Need to Watch ‘Jessica Jones’

by

Jessica Jones is badass, and I’m only four episodes into Netflix’s new series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones. So far, I’m hooked, especially after the end of the fourth episode. It works so far because of how dark the story is and how human the characters are and its feminist message and empowering characters, and I love it. Jessica Jones ...

Fantastic Four Review

by

A reboot to 2005’s cutesy attempt at a Fantastic Four franchise, Fant4stic Four is Fox Studio’s revitalization of their second Marvel property (after X-Men). There were some notable changes made in an attempt to modernize and differentiate this version of the Fantastic Four from its last films, but it still went ahead and delivered another ...

Ant-Man Review

by

Ant-Man may be Marvel’s smallest new hero, but that didn’t take away from his first appearance in the Cinematic Universe. There’s many ways the film worked and further built up the story of the other movies, yet stayed an enjoyable solo piece. For those who never saw Avengers: Age of Ultron, which takes place before ...
