Jane Foster's Thor
With the newest Thor movie being released soon I think it's important to shed some light on Jane Foster’s Thor. Now there are some internet fanboys who have a fundamental problem with Jane taking the mantle, but those children are wrong. Many people that aren’t the actual God of Thunder have taken the hammer and therefore wielded his power.
We open with a very necessary flashback of British occupied India in the 40s, the lady from Kamala’s vision is there and so is Kamala’s great grandmother. She uses the bangle to try and save her people from the British. These women were close, and desperately trying to save themselves. They are all here from another dimension. Kamran is being teased because he clearly has a crush on Kamala and I love it.
Toy Story is arguably one of the best animated films of all time, and for many of us it holds a special place in our hearts. So when the news that there was to be a movie centered around Buzz Lightyear, I was ecstatic. I am someone who has been anxiously anticipating this film and to finally see it on the big screen was fantastic.
I thoroughly enjoyed episode 1 and I am genuinely excited for this show so here we go with episode 2… Kamala walls into school super confident and cool and owning it…until she runs into a cute boy. Kamala has to hear the girl she saved brag about getting saved, which yes makes absolutely no sense, but …high school girls.
This review series is going to be an interesting experience for me; as I am coming at it from almost an opposite angle of any Marvel review I’ve ever done. I am a Star Wars casual, I enjoy the properties but I do not know details, and I remember only major plot points. I’ve never really done a review not knowing everything I can beforehand before, so let's see what that does to my enjoyment (or lack thereof) of this show.
I have personally been looking forward to this show very much, and although I am disappointed by the change in her powers for the adaptation, I have hope. The lead actress is a perfect choice in not only appearance and personality but in knowledge. This girl really knows her comics and I am excited to see how that informs her portrayal of the character. So here we go with episode 1…
One of the biggest questions I get asked from MCU fans is what is a Nexus being? What does that mean? Nexus beings are a well known thing in the comics and it looks like this idea is going to become more prevalent in the MCU so I am here to clarify what a Nexus being actually is, their purpose and at least in the comics, who they are.
Now that I am more active on Tik Tok, I’ve had a lot of questions about the different Phoenix entities, and as they are a little too much to sum up in a 30 second to 1 minute video, I thought I would dedicate an article to explaining the separate forces in a little more depth.
Comic Book Movie Rewind
Next up on comic book movie rewind we have the original X-Men. Now this poor team has been through a lot as far as adaptations go, the original films as I recall were not truly terrible unlike their shifted timeline counterparts. The first of the trilogy was released in 2000 and was a phenomenally casted film. The acting was never anyone's issue with these films. However it has been almost a decade since I’ve watched these so let’s see how these hold up.
Comic Book Movie Rewind
So I’ve decided to take a time machine back to the beginning of superhero movies in order to see how time has treated them, first up is the original Fantastic Four film with a young, studly Chris Evans, the ever stunning Jessica Alba, the handsome and distinguished Ioan Gruffudd and the charming and charismatic Michael Chiklis. I remember loving this film when it first came out, of course I was 8 at the time and the scattered viewings in between then and now were enjoyable, though not done with an analytical eye. So here I go back to 2005 when Marvel’s first family hit the big screen;
