Avengers: Infinity War

April 30, 2018

The culmination of the last ten years of Marvel movies, the moment that all these interconnected stories have been building up to, satisfyingly delivers.  This is a relief for everyone who has some level of investment in this franchise.  Its the biggest crossover since Cartoon All-stars to the Rescue, and it is quite the spectacle. […]

Captain America: Civil War

May 9, 2016

Superhero fatigue. That’s the buzz word these days on most movie blogs and podcasts. Internet reviewers love to use it, and have jumped on the bandwagon of the phrase’s overuse. It usually makes me roll my eyes, as it seems like an attempt to sound “above all that”. But I have to admit… I may […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron

May 3, 2015

Marvel has been very successful in creating a movie franchise universe for its comic book heroes, and ever expanding that universe across almost a dozen films. But in their second Avengers movie the whole franchise seems to have evolved to a whole new step. The Marvel movie universe has now managed to completely immerse itself […]

Iron Man 3

May 9, 2013

I’m going to make this a relatively short review. Iron Man 3 is a much more cohesive film than Iron Man 2 but doesn’t quite have the exuberance of Iron Man 1. I will say that it does have better action scenes than both of those previous movies combined. There is a plane sequence which […]

The Avengers

May 7, 2012

“The Avengers, that’s what we call ourselves.  We’re sort of a team.” My thoughts on The Avengers will echo the majority of those who have seen this great movie already. This was one fantastic superhero film, one of the best ever made and certainly the best Marvel film ever made. I still wouldn’t say its […]

My Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

October 2, 2011

5. The Avengers The Avengers has become more of a spectacle than a film. But that’s okay, I’m willing to take part in the spectacle. This movie has been hyped up since Iron Man in 2008 so I highly doubt that it will meet those expectations. Still, having that many superheroes in one movie together […]

The Ten Most Interesting Superheroes

June 19, 2011

10. The Hulk At first glance, Hulk may seem like a simple green beast who likes to smash things. But at Hulk’s best, he’s a complex character with some serious issues. Bruce Banner is constantly struggling for control over his rage-filled alter ego. Banner’s struggle has led The Hulk through some tough journeys on the […]

Iron Man 2

May 7, 2010

Iron Man is back, but not quite better than ever. The elements which I loved from the first Iron Man are still there: Stark’s crazy antics, the fun Iron Man action visuals, the witty dialogue banter. I did feel that the chemistry between Stark and Pepper Potts was ebbing slightly, but that’s a minor quibble. […]

Iron Man

October 28, 2009

Awesome. This movie was just really awesome. Robert Downey Jr really owned his role. He was Tony Stark and he truly made the movie work with his performance. And the chemistry with him and Paltrow really worked for me as well. The story was pretty solid and well-told, and lets face it all of the […]
