I sometimes think people don’t understand how movies work. For instance, I see reactions to Avengers: Infinity War–the movie prior to Endgame–expressing incredulity that most of those characters are coming back. Which implies that such people are either new to this planet or have never seen a movie before because they’re somehow shocked a continuing […]
According to the Interwebs there’s been more than a little bit of buzz revolving around Captain Marvel, the 21st installment of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and not all of it was favorable. As far as I can tell most of the problems–particularly some sort of feminist agenda–are blatantly nonsense. That being said, you’ll notice […]
I have never been a fan of the Fox-Men movies (I liked the first and X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Other than that?

As I’ve said before, whatever the reasons Netflix is cancelling it’s Marvel shows, ratings are only a part of the story (how could they know the trajectory of Jessica Jones, which was successful […]

In case you were wondering how far Thanos’ snap from Avengers: Infinity War extended, apparently all the way in Springfield because the Simpson’s weren’t immune to its effects. Which makes sense when you think about since Disney purchased the assets of 20th Century Fox, which includes The Simpsons.
See what I did there? With the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home premiering-if the scuttlebut on the Interwebs is at all accurate–sometime this week it’s worth a look at one of Spider-man’s greatest enemies. Mysterio! To be fair that’s just my feeling about the character because his awesomeness will vary based upon the artist […]
