Certified nerd, super geek and very proud fangirl.
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;
Moonknight Eps. 4-5
So I was a few weeks behind on Moonknight so I thought I’d combine my recap and review for episodes 4 and 5. We see a whole hall of contained Gods which makes me wonder who decides which Gods can and can’t walk free and how that's determined. I feel like in a show that’s centered around gods using people as avatar’s we should have been given more background and insight into how the whole god thing works.
Multiverse of Madness Reviw
Multiverse of Madness was a highly anticipated film for many reasons and so far the reviews have been very divisive, now we all know by now that I am a very opinionated person and I want to be very detailed in this review. This film had some really amazing moments and it was visually stunning, but the best scenes stuck out so much because they were put up against a backdrop of a messy plot, ill timed pacing and a lack of character development.
After being very pleasantly surprised by the first episode of Moonknight I was very much looking forward to how they were going to open this story up further. I think that so far they are doing a great job of balancing all of their story elements, here are my in-depth, as I watched thoughts on the second episode of Moonknight.
The first episode of Moon Knight dropped this week and it has been a much anticipated drop for many. For me, I am excited for the MCU to dive into something a bit deeper as far as mental health goes and I will always be excited for a project including Oscar Isaac.
The Scarlet Witch
With rumors of my lovely Wanda getting a solo movie and even a possible trilogy after the events of Multiverse of Madness there has been some internet discourse of what it could possibly be about. Surely this witch who has appeared in nearly 2000 comic books can’t possibly have enough depth to her to carry her own movies, surely Marvel only writes plot driven stories and can’t fathom a solo story for a character that doesn’t have much to work with in the source material. So here we go with possible storylines for a solo Scarlet Witch movie (some of which will obviously change after the multiverse of madness).
Moon Knight Background
I think it's safe to say just about everyone is hyped for the release of Moon knight, even people who don’t know much about the character ( I mean Oscar Isaac can get just about anyone to do anything), that said I think it’d be good to take a look at the source material as this is a very important character to very many people.
So my husband and I started re-watching Doctor Who, and as someone who watched it as my comfort show for my depression I’ve never watched it happily before so I thought I’d record my happy analytical thoughts of this timeless masterpiece of a show.
