Enter Jupiter’s Legacy

Remember a few months ago when I discussed that Netflix was dumping its Marvel Television properties (for reasons that were supposedly due to low ratings–and while that may be true I believe it to be a simplification)? If I recall I also paraphrased Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) from 2013’s Pacific Rim ‘In order to fight […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Review

This review is a long time coming because while I’m a huge fan of the original Pacific Rim I didn’t know how to approach the sequel, especially since the director of the first, Guillermo Del Toro, wouldn’t be returning to the franchise.

Is ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ In Trouble?

I thought that I should mention […]

Netflix’s Daredevil Reviews Are Coming In…

..and the first I have read is from SuperHeroHype–and it’s pretty positive (effusively so, truth be told). In fact, I suspect that it’s perhaps too rosy seeing that it appears that the reviewer has only seen the first of a 13-episode series. Enthusiasm aside–after all, the site isn’t called SuperHeroHype for nothing–it’s a good sign that the opener […]
