Review – Alien: Ore (2019)

I know, I know, recording clean audio is my current bête noire. It’s something I’m working on but the thing about sound recording is that where you are is where you are. You can’t reduce ambient sound in an area–because I’m not Doctor Strange–and have to deal with what I have. So until the lavaliere […]

Review – Avengers: Infinity War

The less said aboutthe particulars of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War the better but know it rewards fans over casual viewers.  That’s not to say that if you haven’t seen all 18 of the prior MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) movies you won’t enjoy it, though if you haven’t seen any Infinity War isn’t a great […]

The Equalizer 2 – Official Trailer 1

I participated in a thread on Twitter with C. Robert Cargill (co-writer of Sinister, Sinister 2 and Doctor Strange) where he was talking about The Equalizer 2 and it’s director, Antoine Fuqua (who also directed the first movie). I described Fuqua as ‘the thinking man’s Michael Bay,’ and it’s an apt comparison because if you […]

Avengers: Infinity War – Final Trailer

“Let’s talk about this plan of yours.” says Star-Lord, while Peter Parker looks on bemused, while Drax looks just grim. “I think it’s good, except it sucks. Let me do the plan, that way it might be really good.” “Wow.” Tony Stark relies, perfectly capturing how much of an ass he thinks Quill is in […]

The Man Who Murdered Time – Pt. 1

The Shadow was created by Walter B. Gibson, and long before he appeared in movies and television, he was a staple of radio.  HIs first appearance was in the 1930’s, and he’s had a huge influence on heroes (and villains) to follow. For instance, the origin of Marvel Comics’ Iron Fist and Doctor Strange are remarkably similar […]

Ghost In The Shell – Official Trailer 1

It’s hard not to see the latest trailer for the live-action version of Ghost In The Shell, starring Scarlett Johansson, and not think about the allegations of whitewashing that plagued the production (the same thing happened when the Internet learned Tilda Swinton was cast as the Ancient One in Doctor Strange; a character that was typically not […]

HUGE Doctor Strange Villain Confirmation

As I’ve said before, and bears repeating; I really hate spoilers. There’s often something about the early reveal of crucial plot-points that reeks of someone out to steal everyone else’s joy. That being said, what I stumbled upon an article from Wegotitcovered.com it confirmed what I long hoped about the latest entry to the Marvel […]

A Strange Doctor Strange Trailer

And […]

Doctor Strange Conjures Up Some Levity

I mentioned a few posts ago that I wouldn’t be writing much about Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange out of fear of spoilers, though I think that the new trailer is important for reasons I expand upon below. What I was wondering was how Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange would add the levity, the light-heartedness that’s been crucial to […]
