The Flash: All Star Team Up Review (Article) - 4/17/2015 9:30:17 AM

It might be me, but Routh as Ray Palmer is getting annoying.  Him and Felicity are basically the same awkward character.  It was cute a few times in season one, but now it is so overused and now they have Palmer doing it also.  About Iris.... I hate this sub plot, and is starting to ruin the show for me.  They need to get rid of this part of the show.  Its just frustrating how poorly written it is. Like you said, why not tell Iris, that Eddie and Joe are working with the Flash.  He still has a secret Identity.  It's forced writing, just to push this horrible sub-plot along.  I hated these "girlfriend" characters in Smallville, they were the worst parts of Arrow, and now it's ruining the Flash, which I thought was the best of the 3.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Melinda Review (Article) - 4/17/2015 9:16:34 AM

At the end of Winter Soldier, Nick Fury Purposely goes underground with the world believing he is dead.  In the comics, Fury has done this numerous times.  Usually preparing for the next attack against the earth. So, the only people that know Fury is alive, is Cap, Black Widow and Falcon.  Given how they left it, I'm sure they haven't told anyone else that he really is alive.  We will see him come from the shadows in Age of Ultron.  I can't remember, but I believe that Coulson also knows that Fury is alive.  But he is the only one from either side.  Now in the MCU movies, SHIELD is no more.  both sides (Shield & the "Real" Shield) are still secret to the world.  Except Coulson's SHIELD is known to Gen Talbot.  But the Avengers think SHIELD is no more and that Coulson is still dead.  When thing to remember, Fury is the master of playing people, so his plan all along might be to have to factions of SHIELD.  He did afterall create many secret teams in the comics, One specifically led by Daisy Johnson (Skye).

This felt like the Y2K bug.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. %u2026Ye Who Enter Here Review (Article) - 3/20/2015 1:23:49 PM

It's the typical superviliian team up.  These guys were pretty low on the Master Villian scale.  They obviously don't know how to work as a team, and once Cal (Their Leader) is wisped away. They had no direction.So a well oiled team of SHIELD agents can easily dispatch a bunch 'crazies'.  And Blanky, you keep knocking strong female characters.  Bobbie Mockingbird Morse, is a high level shield agent and future Avenger, so she could handle a battered wife with Lee Press On Razors.  As for Cal, it's obvious, that what ever experiments he done to himself, have made him VERY batshit crazy.

The Flash: Out of Time Review (Article) - 3/20/2015 1:14:12 PM

makabriel Yeah, all the major events, that happened in the last 15 minutes, will be wiped next episode, but, It was cool to see them go down that path.  Remember, Barry's end goal, is to save his mom.  So who knows where this will move the story.  They already said the Flashpoint is a huge reference for this series and where it's going.  and that story was very dark.

I remember hearing from either Tim or Bob, that they were obligated in some way, to continue with the reviews.  Wasn't sure if it was contractual or something else.

Oh, btw, Cinemania is going strong, with a lot of the regulars, so anyone who needs to get their Mania fix, come on over to Facebook.  either look for Cinemania with the Vision profile or just look for Calamitous Johnson and he will point you in the right direction.  Your invited too Blanky, so far, thats the only thing we are missing over there, your bright smile!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Who You Really Are Review (Article) - 3/12/2015 12:56:50 PM

Hey Blankey, the whole Odin comment was definitly a hint at whats to come,  For the people that saw Thor 2 SPOILER SPOILER, We assume that Loki has taken over as King of Asgard, in the form of Odin. END SPOILER END SPOILER.  So that opens up another question of why would he send Sif down to stop the Kree soldier.  What would he want with these Inhuman 'Abominations'.  But as far as I know, I don't think Anthony Hopkins is done with playing Odin, if at least for a cameo or an even smaller part then he is used to.

NEW Daredevil Netflix Trailer (Article) - 3/12/2015 11:00:11 AM

I agree with you Butchman, I was ok with Daredevil, and Ben Affleck.  It wasn't a homerun, but this was before Iron-Man and the Avengers, so I thought it deserved a second go.  I actually think the Elektra Movie is what really put the death punch on for this series.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Who You Really Are Review (Article) - 3/12/2015 10:57:33 AM

People who are down on this show are gonna complain no matter what this show does. 1) This was the lowest rated show for live viewings.  DVR is not counted in that number yet.  I for one never watch a show live, and most people who watch this show, watch it on DVR.  Those ratings came out the next morning, So lets just drop the ratings thing.  2) People complained about the first season because they dragged out storylines over multiple episodes.  Now in the second episode, we've already revealed Skye as an inhuman, Purposly used the Kree to give the Inhuman origin, and have Sif to verify.  Yeah, this could of been done with another Asguardian, but why.  If you have the opportunity to use MCU actors, do it!  Cause lets agree, if they just used some random Asguardian, everyone would be complaining about not using Sif.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Aftershocks Review (Article) - 3/6/2015 7:48:18 AM

Sorry, forgot that we are not on Cinemania, and we can't use quote marks. 

Lets try this again.

First off, Blanky, you let the cat out of the bag about your NO COMIC BOOK EXPERT, on the Goodbye thread.  That being said, this episode did not have any easter eggs or name drops, unless you count them using the term TERREGENESIS.  All the Hyrda Heads, were created for this show.  

Secondly, sure Marvel tends to showcase strong female characters, such as Black Widow, Maye, Skye (now in Season 2), Bobbie  and Maria Hill.  This is a Whedon thing, which he does fantastically.  I'd rather watch a strong female charachter who can handle themselves and actually do heroic stuff then the week damsel in distress girlfriend, that DC/WB loves on thier TV shows.  It all started with Lana in smallville, and now we have Laurel, Felicity, Thea and Iris just in two shows.  The one strong female character they had, they killed off.
