Trailer Into Reaction: Avengers: A-Day (2019)| Official Trailer

The trailer for the Square Enix video game Avengers: A-Day dropped a little while ago and while the CG is actually pretty decent–despite residing comfortably in the uncanny valley–the script appears really, really not so good in the sense that they don’t appear to get the characters right. For instance Iron Man/Tony Stark sounds almost […]

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 […]
