“Whose Side Are You On?” (Captain America: Civil War)

“Whose Side Are You On?” (Captain America: Civil War)

I remember when I heard that Captain America 3 was going to be an adaption of the Civil War storyline, I immediately rushed out and got a copy of the comic book from my local library. I loved it. It was fantastically written, interesting, and seriously morally ambiguous. The whole story was constructed to steer you through the different sides, but there was never a right decision. It was brilliant, so after reading it, I was naturally excited to see the movie. How’d it turn out? Continue reading “Whose Side Are You On?” (Captain America: Civil War)

“Real Maturity, Mostly” (Daredevil: Season 2)

“Real Maturity, Mostly” (Daredevil: Season 2)

Last year, Marvel Comic’s deal with Netflix yielded one of the best comic book adaptions in years, Daredevil, a thirteen episode series about the origins and life of the Marvel comics character Daredevil (go figure). After watching the first season in literally one day, I couldn’t wait for the second season to hit Netflix. Well, now it’s here, and it’s definitely making itself noticed.

“AKA I’m Smiling” (Jessica Jones: Season 1)

“AKA I’m Smiling” (Jessica Jones: Season 1)

Recently, I was pretty psyched for Marvel and Netflix’s second TV show, Jessica Jones. The first was Daredevil, an absolutely phenomenal take on a classic superhero, that genuinely surprised me with the levels of depth it had reached by the end of it’s 13 episode tenure. Jessica Jones came out recently, and despite my best efforts, I was unable to watch it all in one day. Life got in the way, so I had to settle for two days.

“It’s a Mystery!” (Secret Wars #1)

“It’s a Mystery!” (Secret Wars #1)

SECRET WARS! This series was originally released in the late 80’s as a toy line tie in (say that five times fast) that included most of the heroes from the Marvel universe. The company who drafted Marvel said that they could do anything they wanted, as long as it was called Secret Wars, because those were two words that had tested well with young boys at the time. The toy line was a massive failure, but the series went on to make history. Now, it’s back. Continue reading “It’s a Mystery!” (Secret Wars #1)

“Assembled” (Avengers: Age of Ultron)

“Assembled” (Avengers: Age of Ultron)

It’s taken me a little while to start writing this, as I wanted some time to compose my thoughts on this movie before just slapping words down onto a page. Because to be honest, this could end up being one of the most important movies of the year for me, and I’d like to give it a completely fair and un-bias chance. But, it’s Marvel. So we all know that’ll last about as long as the time it’ll take the logo to come up. Continue reading “Assembled” (Avengers: Age of Ultron)
