X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST - Opening Battle Clip (Article) - 4/14/2014 4:18:36 PM

 Wow!  Iceman finally does his ice slide!  The rest of it looked really good, too!  I'm officially in.

 

Hercules Movie - Official TV Spot 2 (Article) - 4/14/2014 4:16:47 PM

This actually looks pretty good.  They seem to be sticking to the 12 Labors of Hercules... which, if they adhere to even half of the legend, it'll be 1000% better than those "Titans" fiascos.

 

Mania Box Office Report: Captain America 2 over Rio 2 (Article) - 4/14/2014 4:14:20 PM

"Transcendence" looks like crap.  It could be and may be awesome, but from what I've seen... it looks awful.

Marvel vs DC - Still on! (Article) - 4/12/2014 1:42:22 PM

D.C. has lost their goddamned minds.  Man of Steel got half-ass (at best!) reviews and grossed $668,045,518 worldwide in the course of 14 weeks (according to BoxOfficeMojo).

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has already grossed $336,608,000 in less than 2 weeks, and has gotten RAVE reviews.

Someone needs to talk to DC and Warners about the realities of math.  And that's BEFORE you factor in all the fanboy hate for Affleck as the new Batman.  And factoring in all the hype that we'll get from Avengers 2 next year, leading into Cap 3 the following year.

<smh>  I don't say this out of spite, but out of a wish for better DC films:  I hope they get smoked so that they start to learn and do things right.  I want to see a Justice League film in my lifetime, preferably one that doesn't suck.

 



 

 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Turn Turn Turn Review (Article) - 4/10/2014 9:14:31 AM

Tim Janson, good review.  I think it's within possibility only because they have shown that Hand will kill other agents to achieve the mission, and Ward is constantly stated to be this cold-as-ice Specialist.  So it doesn't stretch credulity too far to think Hand would order him to kill the two agents and wound her, and that Ward would follow orders.  HIGHLY UNLIKELY, but not impossible is all I'm saying.

More likely is that Hand isn't somehow dead.  She's a semi-major character in the comics, so I don't see them killing her off.  I know Saffron Burrows struggles at times to bury her native Irish accent, but overall she's done a great job in a key role on the show.  Here's to hoping that she somehow lives.

My only real complaint with the episode was that it wasn't long enough.  I'm really loving this show right now, and I can't wait to see what else they have in store for us over the next 6 weeks.

The nerdist broke the news yesterday that Nick Fury himself will be in the season finale, and now that we all know who the kids' mother was, Cobie Smulders's schedule has apparently freed up enough for her to show up for a full episode or two later this season as well.  So the film tie-ins aren't done yet.

Oh, and Great One, you need to throttle down, or just stop watching the show.  They aren't going to kill off one of the most important characters (that'd be tantamount to them killing off Willow in "Buffy TVS," so just go ahead and give up that dream, man).

Mania Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Article) - 4/8/2014 2:50:47 PM

This movie did no wrong.  It was everything I hoped for and more.  A

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Uprising Revealed (Article) - 4/7/2014 6:21:51 PM

P.S. Captain America 2 was the ABSOLUTE HEAT. I couldn't have asked for a better sequel or a better film. I think it made IM3 look like a half-assed effort, and even outclassed Thor: Dark World by a good stretch.

Okay, for those still here, here's my thoughts on how it ties together:

> The Clairvoyant is Arnim Zola, using his digital persona/consciousness and the "prediction algorithm" that he talked about in CA: Winter Soldier to pull off all the stuff he's been doing on MAoS. It explains the "psychic" abilities and predictive abilities of the Clairvoyant and also why he couldn't see what was done to Coulson to resurrect him (because Zola's consciousness had no access to the Guest House).

> A.I.M. and Cybertek are going to be revealed as also having been infiltrated (or being straight up run) by HYDRA.

> The betrayal and loss of Agent Sitwell is going to be one of the "big betrayals" that they keep mentioning on the ads for MAoS. In both the show and in the One-Shot "The Consultant" it really looked like Coulson and Sitwell had a friendship or at least a long-standing working relationship.

> I'm hoping to see cameos either end of this season or sometime next season by Toby Jones (Zola) and/or Thomas Kretschmann (Baron Strucker). I somewhat expect to see Kretschmann show up if Dracula is cancelled over at NBC, as his schedule will be suddenly free next season.

 

*** END SPOILERS ***

 

Whatever happens from here on out, I'm completely excited to see whatever it is.  My faith in Marvel and in Agents of SHIELD has been completely renewed, and I'm all in til death or cancellation.

 

The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 4/1/2014 6:00:35 PM

A .  The whole episode was terrifying, horrifying, and awesome, in equal parts and at different times.  The final scene of everyone reunited and ready to issue a world-class curb-stomping to the cannibals of Terminus will resonate with me until the Fall.

 CAPTAIN AMERICA FTW!!  Marvel is about to own.

That is all.  You may continue going about your lives now.
