…kill it

As our “hero” states in his opening voiceover, “Deadpool 2” is a family movie. And I have to say, he’s absolutely right. Seriously.

Okay, not so much in the traditional sense…please, dear god, do not bring the children…but in the sense that it is about a family. Yes, they have problems. Yes, they have enemies. But at the end of the day, they would decapitate any henchman who tried to lay a finger on their family. Read the rest of this entry

…power through

Welcome, movie fans, to the start of another summer of blockbusters.

With “Avengers: Infinity War,” we enter the beginning of the end of a story Marvel has been building towards for a decade. No, that’s not a spoiler, that’s just a fact. Part two of “Infinity War” (and its TBD title) will conclude this arc and start the next.

There are few things I can say about this movie without spoiling some truly spectacular cinematic moments, so instead I’m going to take the opportunity to applaud Marvel for what they’ve built.

…make it reign

black-panther-hr-posterIt’s no secret that this Marvel universe has pulled together quite a cast of characters—a genius billionaire, Norse god, a gifted surgeon, a brilliant scientist/hulk, and a super soldier (to name a few). Now, with “Black Panther,” they’ve found a king, and so much more.

To start, we get Wakanda, a (fictitious…unfortunately) East African nation, that hides its true self from the outside world. Centuries ago, an enormous amount of vibranium (here’s a link for the non-nerds) landed there and given this small nation enormous technological advancements, something they decided long ago they must keep hidden from the outside world, for their own protection. This true Wakandan nation is led by its king, the Black Panther. Read the rest of this entry
