Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Season 7 recap, “Alien Commies From Outer Space!”

14 Jun

The Story So Far… Our team of heroes is traveling through time, trying to stop the Chronicoms plan to destroy SHIELD in the past. And they’ve been having to do that with a few hurdles in their own camp, like a Life Model Decoy version of Coulson, a not completely there May, a power futzing out YoYo, and now thanks to their need to jump at a specific time in order to get out of a specific point in the past, Enoch is now stranded in the 1930’s! But where did the time jumping Zephyr and the rest of the team go to? Continue reading

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Season 7 recap, “Know Your Onions”

5 Jun

The Story So Far… Our team finds themselves in 1931 New York, trying to prevent the Chronicoms’ plans to take over Earth by dismantling SHIELD in the past before it’s created. Our heroes slowly learn, though, their plan to dismantling SHIELD isn’t to simply destroy the roots of the organization, but to destroy the actual need for SHIELD. And that means killing the lineage of one of their old nemesis, Gideon Malick, the co-head of HYDRA! So now they have to protect Freddie, Gideon’s father, from being killed in order to ensure their greatest enemy, and ultimately SHIELD, comes to pass! Jeez, time travel is a mindscrew.

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This post may seem a little out of date, but I wanted to share my thoughts anyways…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

SPOILERS ahead for the first two episodes of the new season…

After all that happened last season, like HYDRA getting wiped out and everyone’s favorite likable psychopath Grant Ward finally meeting his end, it was hard to see where the next season would go. We knew from that brief time jump glimpse in the season 3 finale, Daisy was a fugitive and Coulson was no longer SHIELD’s head honcho. But what did that really mean for the rest of our team? That part was left vague, but with this week’s season premiere, we finally get a clue to what’s going on with SHIELD now, if at best, its a bit clearer. But let’s run through the bullet points of the season premiere: Continue reading

Thanks to Netflix posting this early, I was able to rewatch the most recent season of Agents of SHIELD. On the whole, this show has been gradually improving from season to season, and season three was no exception. But I thought I’d just bring up some big points that stuck with me in my rewatch. Expect snarkiness and lots of SPOILERS to follow: Continue reading

The X-MEN Movie: 15 Years Later

Stewart here…

Considering the output of comic book movies this year has been ranging from good (Kingsman, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man) to bad (Fantastic Four), its important to remember a time when a superhero movie was a rarity. And in most cases, that rarity was more watered down versions of the core concept than a faithful adaptation. Cut to 1999, when director Bryan Singer was starting work on a big-budget adaptation of one of Marvel’s most popular batch of characters, the mutant heroes, the X-Men. That movie, released in the summer of 2000, was X-Men. Continue reading
