My Opinion On The Teased MCU Phase 5 Movies

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So when Phase 4 of the MCU was announced during Comic Con, Kevin Feige also dropped some Phase 5 films that are currently in development.  My guess is that Marvel basically just wants to reassure us that yes the movies that we expect sequels for are, indeed, getting sequels and yes the movies they just recently got the rights to are, indeed, getting movies.  That’s my guess anyways, but I wanted to discuss some of these movies.  Because there are no particular order for these movies yet, I’ll talk about them in no particular order.Well, except for Blade…

Ben 10 Vs The Justice League (1V1)

Hello interweb, Nate here.  No, I’m not dead!  But this blog basically is.  So screw it.  idk if anyone honestly cares about this blog anymore sense I post so infrequently now.  I mean, I didn’t even post an Endgame review when the movie came out despite seeing it opening weekend.  If 5 people comment below saying they want an Endgame review, I’ll make it.  Otherwise, I’m just posting now for my own amusement. Anyways, onto the topic at hand…a few weeks ago the YouTube channel Death Battle posted a battle between Ben 10 and Green Lantern.  As both a Ben 10 fan and a DC fan, I had major issues with the battle but quite frankly the YouTuber Kuro the Artist already mentioned literally all of my issues in his analysis, so if you care enough to see the issues with that battle just watch Kuro’s video.  However, this did get me to thinking.  In my opinion, Ben would definitely win a battle against Hal Jordan, but what about the rest of the league?  Now, that’s where this post comes in.  I do have a few caveats though.  So, here are the rules…

Update – Whatcha guys wanna see?

Hello interweb.  I’m not dead, but this blog is getting there.  So, I wanna try (again) to start blogging regularly.  I’m not gonna give a consistent schedule cause everybody knows I won’t follow it.  But, I will be making some new posts.  So, I have a few ideas for me next post but I was wondering what you guys wanted to see.  The suggestions are below so vote for the ideas you like best (you can vote for more then one).

Update – Mini Blog Reboot!

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So I’ve been neglecting this blog a lot lately.  It mostly started when college began last year and I used college as an excuse to not worry about this place for a while.  However, summer is almost over and I’ve still barely touched this place.  A lot of that was because I’ve just lost a lot of passion for a lot of things recently, including blogging.  However, I remember that I used to love blogging!  I even remember when I first made this blog, I had a very consistent schedule.  Once upon a time, I made it a goal to post some new content once a week and I held onto that goal for a while.  Then, I stopped posting weekly and decided to stick with posting every once in a while when I felt like it.  Which eventually turned to once a month.  Pitiful.  So, I thought I’d make some changes!

From now on, I’ll be posting once a week every Friday!  Maybe I’ll end up posting more and more often if I can rekindle my passion for comics and discussing comic books, but for now every Friday is my goal.  And every Friday will be slightly different.  Maybe I’ll discuss some recent news and give my opinions on them, maybe I’ll review something, maybe I’ll do another SuperheroSins, etc.  Either way, from this point on wards, expect new content from me once a week!  And yes, that means today!  Later today, I plan on having something to begin this new plan of mine.  So stay tuned to read all about it!  For those of you who’ve stuck around this long reading everything I post, thanks!  it means a lot to me!  For anybody new here, welcome!  The more the merrier!

Ranking the rest of the Ben 10 Aliens

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So, in order to make the past two lists, I decided to rank every Ben 10 alien in terms of how much I like them.  So, I’m posting the full ranking below incase you’re curious on where your favorite alien landed on the list.  I decided to split these ranks into three sections: aliens I like, aliens I’m neutral about, and aliens I dislike.  This is mostly a junk post just to show off the leftovers of my two Top 10 Ben 10 posts.  Enjoy!

Pre-Movie Thoughts on Black Panther

Hello interweb, Nate here.  I’ve been wanting to make this post for a while and since I’m leaving in 15 minutes to go see it I thought I’d jot down some pre-movie thoughts before I head out.  I’ll have a review up tomorrow for all of you to see my final thoughts.

This movie has gotten a lot of hype and a large part of it is the fact that this is a mostly black movie with only two Tolkien white guys (like if you got that joke) in the whole mix.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’d know I get really annoyed with the SJW side of comic books and I’ve had mixed opinions on representation as a whole.  However, before seeing the movie I don’t really see this as a big SJW movie at all.  When I think SJW, I think of people forcing representation into the story rather than letting things organically develop.  Iceman is a good example of this.  However, the mythos surrounding Black Panther just doesn’t come off to me as forcing representation down our throats and actually feels like a breathe of fresh air considering how few movies like this film are out there.

In fact, I’d go as far as to say this movie seems like a really important movie in terms of representation for the black community.  Granted, this is kind of a funny form of representation when you really think about it.  I mean, Wakanda is a fictional country with different politics and societal standards than the real world and thus doesn’t technically represent the struggles of black Americans or even black Africans (is that redundant?).  Although, I realize what people mean by representation since it’s not really in comparative to real world society but mainly from Hollywood movies in general.  I mean, when was the last time you saw a primarily black cast in a movie?

Now lets talk about the movie itself outside of politics for a second, since I really wanna rush this out there before I head out to see this thing.  When the movie was initially announced, I wasn’t actually overly excited for the film since to me I saw it as just another Marvel movie and with Infinity War on the horizon my hype is set on that film more.  But the closer this film has gotten to it’s release, the more hype it built and I’ve slowly been sucked into the hype.  It wasn’t until the movie officially came out that I became as hyped as I currently am to see this thing.  People keep saying it’s the best Marvel movie yet!  I’m hoping I’m not over-hyping this film in my head so I’m not dissapointed if it doesn’t meet any of my unrealistic expectations, but I am excited either way.

A few predictions I want to make before seeing this thing:

  • One of the infinity stones are going to be in this movie as a McGuffin (I haven’t been keeping track of these rocks but I’ve been told we’re still missing one)
  • Despite the largely black cast, I’m not expecting this movie to get too political since it’s still a Marvel movie.  Maybe they’ll make a Black Lives Matter jab or something, but for the most part idk
  • I am going to f*cking love Shuri and Killmonger just by judging the trailers
    • (Possibly more than T’challa himself)

Alright, time for me to go.  Forgive any possible typos or grammar mistakes please as I wrote this in a rush.  I’ll fix minor details later.  Peace!

An Update – Is this blog dying?

Hello interwed, Nate here!  So, a few things I want to get off my chest.  If you are a regular reader of mine, you’ve probably been noticing that I haven’t been writing as frequently as I used to.  This blog is about four years old and I’ve enjoyed making it and updating it and receiving feedback from you guys.   However, as of recent there’s been a few things that have slowly been killing my passion for writing on this blog and I feel it shows.

Marvel’s Runaways Season 1 – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  This might be the first time I’ve ever reviewed one of these streaming shows.  I wanted to review season 1 of Jessica Jones forever ago but just didn’t.  However, the season 1 finale of Marvel’s Runaways just concluded today and I’ve never wanted to talk about a show more!  Spoiler-free opinion?  It’s awesome!  Go watch it!!! Only major criticism is that the season is less Marvel’s “Runaways” and more so Marvel’s “Hideaways”, and I’ll get more into that in the actual review.  Also, Karolina is indeed gay in this for those of you who cares.  Ok, from here on out SPOILER WARNING!!!!!! You have been warned!  (And seriously, if you haven’t seen the show yet please do not read this review.) (more…)

IT (2017) – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  I feel kinda bad that I’m reviewing this film instead of Batman and Harley Quinn or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but I’ve been busy with college and quite frankly I really wanted to talk about this movie so here we go!  I might get those reviews out if I get myself motivated to do so.  Plus I recently saw Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989 so I might review that too!  As always, SPOILER WARNING!
