The Strain: Last Rites Review (Article) - 9/30/2014 7:41:47 AM

I don't think this was C territory. Honestly, all the flashback parts made the episode more in line with a B minus, for me. But yes, I am being kind.

Eph sucks. Is he better in the books? It annoys me too, because the actor who plays him (Cory Stoll) is vastly underrated, but I feel like he just phones it in. Also, the horrible wig he wears really gets on my nerves. I am hoping something happens and he loses his hair or something in the show. 

Regardless, I am anxious to see how the finale falls out. I am sucked in enough for season 2.

In Arrow's defense, season 2 brought it back away from the realistic aspect. But yes, bring on Flash!!!

Marvel%u2019s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Shadows Review (Article) - 9/25/2014 9:15:15 AM

I liked it, and it started off well. I do have to note that the alien symbols were present in the room Skye was laying down in and watching the screen. She also mentioned work with cryptographers to Coulson before I switched the subject.

Titans%u2019 TV Series, Based on DC Comic, May Come to TNT (Article) - 9/15/2014 7:53:45 AM

I can get behind a Titans show if done right. I highly think it should cross over with Flash and Arrow. They already have plenty of those villains set up like Deathstroke, Raas Al-Ghul and the League etc.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray Review (Article) - 9/11/2014 5:45:05 AM

Best Marvel movie since The Avengers. Guardians was a comedy, and just not up to this level of story. Anyway, I am bummed there is no Marvel One-Shot.

*something on the line.

Blu-ray Shopping Bag: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Article) - 9/9/2014 5:24:31 AM

I see where you are coming from. I will say, however, that Cap 2 is my second favorite Marvel movie to date  behind The Avengers. Its fast paced, and shies away from the normal Marvel recipe for films as of late, which are superhero comedies. That's why I liked Cap 2 a hell of a whole lot better than Guardians of the Galaxy. I am not saying humor in a superhero movie is bad, but Iron Man 3 and Guardians were ham fisted, and it soured me a bit.  

Cap 2 is more the spy intrigue film, and I really think captured the essense of the Brubaker storyline of the same name, with some added thrills for sure. As far as being a comic fan, which I am, I appreciate when they base these movies in storylines I have read with a twist. I also liked X-Men Days of Future Past, which they changed some as well, much like this movie. Ideally for me, these two were the best of the summer. 

Again, what was so fresh about this movie was it was serious and had some gravitas. I felt like there was someone on the line. With Guardians, yes they were fighting for the universe, but it was so light I didn't take it very seriously. 

As far as Agents of SHIELD go, the fallout from Cap 2 made that show interesting. It was very boring before the Hyrdra reveal. My concern is it won't do so well this season because there is no direct movie link as Avengers 2 doesn't come out until the end of the season.  Anyway, thanks for the review!

The Rock is Black Adam (Article) - 9/4/2014 5:32:26 PM

I have high hopes BvS. I also think with Terio on the script, it will be a bit more hopeful than Man of Stell. To be honest, my gut says it will all be connected, though.

The guy from New Line only said he isn't in Justice League, not he isn't part of the major DCU. I highly doubt it won't be connected. Also, Captain Marvel was never one of the founding members. I am sure he'll show up in the sequel, though.

The Strain: Creatures of the Night Review (Article) - 9/3/2014 10:15:16 AM

The hacker chick was in a scene with the German and the corporate guy with the liver problems who wants to be a vampire. Sorry, I can't remember names.
