Crisis on Earth-X Impressions (and other random thoughts that are still nagging at me)

15 Jan

By now, hopefully, you have all read Stewart’s write-ups about the recent CW DCTV crossover extravaganza, Crisis on Earth-X. But I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it (trust me, it’s so much better to think about then some of the stuff I hear at work), and since the DCTV shows are about to come back from hiatus…

Basically I need to say this- that was some damn epic TV.

Let’s just assume, from this point on that spoilers will be contained within this post…

Justice League was… better than I thought.

8 Jan

This post may seem a little out of date, but I wanted to share my thoughts anyways…

I have seen a lot of comments the last month or so about Justice League being a failure. But I want to state otherwise. Sure, Warner Brothers and DC aren’t likely to have made their money back and may not make as much as they hoped by the time it leaves theaters but… here’s the thing- I have enjoyed only one DC film since Dark Knight Rises and that was Wonder Woman. Sure, I saw Man of SteelBatman versus Superman, and even Suicide Squad in the theater but they were crap movies and they pissed me off more than anything. Wonder Woman finally made me interested in DC films again and then the trailers for Justice League cemented that I was going to see this one in the theater (it was touch and go after Suicide Squad, honestly).

Some Random Thoughts on STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI! (SPOILERS)

30 Dec

Stewart here…

As the latest installment in the Star Wars series hits theaters, it’s clear that this has become divisive in a way that The Force Awakens wasn’t. Instead of complaining about the familiar steps that Force Awakens takes, some fans are now complaining about the exact opposite in The Last Jedi. For my money, and as I’ll discuss here, there are things about the movie that I have trouble with, but they are not deal breaking type things that some fans have lost their marbles over. I honestly loved this movie for veering out of just being a retread of the previous movies, while also doing something that’s been hard to do (at least successfully in my view): make an original Star Wars film. But let’s just get to some broad non-spoilers related stuff before jumping into all the spoilery goodness… Continue reading

ARROW Season 6×09, “Irreconcilable Differences” recap

10 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So unless you were busy the last two weeks, Team Arrow was involved in helping fight interdimensional Nazis and a mirror universe evil Ollie! Oh, and also, Ollie and Felicity had an impromptu wedding (you can read more on that here)! But let’s get back to pressing matters in Arrowland, like Ollie being indicted for being the Green Arrow, and how would the FBI know that? Just how, I wonder? Continue reading

Heroes and Villains invade San Jose for another grand Fan Fest!

7 Dec

We had the opportunity to attend Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in San Jose for the second year recently. Since we weren’t there in a press/media or doing a panel capacity, it was a little strange and initially there wasn’t going to be a post about the convention. However, there were enough differences- and some issues we wanted to address- that it seems like a good idea to write something up. We had a great time, I want to make that clear- HVFF puts on a good show!

But… it could be better. Continue reading

DC TV Recap Round-Up, Week 8: Crisis on Earth X (Part Two)!

29 Nov

Welcome back to the big crossover event, Crisis on Earth-X! Before we get started with the final half of this, let’s discuss what happened previously. You got interdimensional Nazis breaking up Barry and Iris’ wedding, and why has this happened? Because they come from Earth-X, a reality where the Nazis won WWII, and right now they are lead by…the evil doppleganger of Oliver Queen! And the evil doppleganger of Kara is his wife! And Eobard Thawne (the one we all know) is among them! Continue reading

DC TV Recap Round-Up, Week 8: Crisis on Earth X (Part One)!

28 Nov

Welcome back, and boy did you drop in at the right time! This week, we got two nights and four shows worth of recaps to give you! As a result, we’re merging the regular Arrow weekly recap into this one (so don’t expect that to come back until next week’s winter finale), and since we are going to have a lot of ground to cover, this part will only cover the first night, with episodes of Supergirl and Arrow. So without further ado, let’s jump into all the fun! Continue reading

ARROW Season 6×07, “Thanksgiving” recap

25 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Team Arrow has had its share of problems this season, primarily dealing with the controlled machinations of evil superhacker Cayden James and his right hand woman, the evil Laurel Lance, Black Siren. Add to that Ollie and company being investigated by the FBI, Diggle trying to find a way to deal with his nerve damage, plus Felicity and Curtis trying to jumpstart a new joint business venture, and they are going into the holiday season with a lot on their hands.
