  • The 2018 Superhero Watch: Reflections on the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    The 2018 Superhero Watch: Reflections on the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    As both a movie lover and a ginormous geek, I like to periodically set movie-watching goals for myself. I’ll try to tackle the films in a certain genre, or featuring a certain character, or built around a certain theme. And as a writer and a ginormous geek, I also tend to document some of these challenges. In the past, I’ve done film study projects about the history of horror, the legacy of horror/comedies, my favorite TV Christmas specials and, one memorable December, 25 different incarnations of Ebenezer Scrooge. That I missed out on that Family Ties episode where Alex P. Keaton plays the part is my one regret in life.

    Like so many other things, though, my movie watching habits had to evolve when my wife and I had a baby. It simply wasn’t feasible to set aside an entire month to watch slasher movies and write a detailed analysis of each one. So in 2018, I set a different kind of goal for myself: to watch as many superhero movies as possible, and in the case of those I’ve...

  • S.H.I.E.L.D. Feels the Force of Gravity!

    S.H.I.E.L.D. Feels the Force of Gravity!

    There are SPOILERS ahead, but dear not - Talbot will show the world that he can indeed fix this!

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 21 - The Force of Gravity (IMDB)
    Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, Written by Drew Z. Greenberg & Craig Titley

    The episode cold-opens with Daisy, who has seemingly just woken up in the council chambers of the Confederacy. Before her is Tarian, Kasius’s father – who tries to convince her that she should become his disciple. He is very interested in the inhumans on Earth (as he continued to be in the future), and insists that they deserve a better life. When she refuses but fails to use her powers to break free, he reveals that none of this is real, she is still unconscious, and he is supremely confident that he will break her very soon. Daisy doesn’t have time for this nonsense, so she shows Tarian how unprepared for her he really is. She channels her abilities inward, shatters the device keeping her unconscious and starts...

  • Kneel Before "The One Who Will Save Us All"

    Kneel Before "The One Who Will Save Us All"

    SPOILERS AHOY! - A bed full of lemons? Quake vs Yo-yo? Graviton vs. Thanos? Madness!

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Episode 20 - The One Who Will Save Us All
    Directed by Cherie Gierhart, Written by Brent Fletcher

    One of the best things about this show is how in any given episode, a bunch of things can be resolved, but you always come back to the original problem staring you right in the face. Despite all of the plot movement, when this episode closed, we are still left with the team struggling to break the time loop and stop whoever The Destroyer of Worlds happens to be from shattering the Earth. We know now it isn’t Ruby, and it still could be Daisy Johnson – but maybe it is General Talbot?

    I have to say that these last few episodes have very much felt like a comic book. It’s hard not to make comparisons to the first season since there are so many call-backs, but I recall back then thinking that there just weren’t enough super-powered people...

  • Three Wishes: What We Want in Avengers 4

    Three Wishes: What We Want in Avengers 4

    In Three Wishes, we take a look at something in pop culture and express three hopes for the future, whether those wishes are almost inevitable or pie-in-the-sky dreams.

    Spoiler Warning: This article contains all manner of spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War. If you are one of the three remaining people in North America who hasn’t seen it, read no further.

    In the run-up to Avengers: Infinity War, more than one person called it the Empire Strikes Back of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As it turned out, in terms of consequences, it made Empire look like Benji. After killing several of the MCU’s heroes in the preceding 140 minutes, Thanos successfully assembled the Infinity Gauntlet and completed his stated goal of killing off half the population of the universe with a snap of his fingers. People who read the comic books upon which this was based probably weren’t totally shocked, but even hardcore fans lost their breath when the devastation turned out to include...
