Let’s talk about the X-Men

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So, this is something that has been on my mind as of late.  Mainly due to the recent news of Disney buying Fox being pretty much confirmed at this point.  The X-Men will definitely be part of the MCU in the future.  Now despite that news, I’m not going to be talking about my thoughts on it at this time.  I already did that back in 2015 (yes, this it really has been that long) and you can read my full thoughts here.  Instead, I kinda just want to discuss this particular team in general for a bit.  This post will probably be somewhat of a rambly mess because I actually don’t have any clear idea of what I want to talk about as I’m writing this, but here goes nothing!

Deadpool 2 – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I saw this movie a few weeks ago but just haven’t really found the time to review it until now.  So here’s probably the last review of this movie you’ll see on the internet for a while hehe.  Anyways, non spoiler thoughts?  I think I like this movie better then the first one, but my reasoning is slightly biased as I’ll explain a bit more in this review.  If you liked the first film, you’ll love this one.  It’s just as funny, has more characters, and has a more interesting story to it.  So now that that’s done, leggo!  SPOILER WARNING as per usual.

Black Panther – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Non-spoiler opinions?  Black Panther himself is lame and boring, the villain is f*cking amazing, and Shuri is cute and funny.  The story’s pretty interesting and the politics are thought provoking and interesting.  This is probably one of the best Marvel movies out there but also kind of a strange one since it feels so detached from the MCU.  While there are jokes present, it’s not as comedic as classic MCU and it’s actually more adult than any MCU film I can think of.  I recommend it to anyone who wants a slightly more mature Marvel movie with some racial politics in the mix.  Kids might be bored for most of the movie with only a few fun bits here and there to entertain them.  From this point on, SPOILER WARNING.  You have been warned.

Avengers: Infinity Wars – First Trailer!!!

Hello interweb, Nate here!  Considering that this video already has 14 million views at the time of this writing, you’ve probably already seen this trailer already.  So me telling you that the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer is out would be redundant.  However, it’s still pretty awesome that this thing is out!  Just like my last post, this won’t be a formal Review and Explain segment.  I really wish I had the time to give this trailer the attention it deserves, but college is technically more important that Marvel movies (technically).  So, you get this instead!  I’ll just discuss the highlights here and my thoughts on the trailer as a whole.

The New Mutants First Trailer Dropped and I’m Kinda Confused

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I have barely touched this blog in a very long time.  Unfortunately, college has been eating away at my time more than high school ever did.  When I do have free time I’m doing other activities instead of writing.  Kind of a shame too.  I’ve been really wanting to get my review of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 out, just haven’t found the time to start the damn thing.  However, the first New Mutants trailer dropped last night and being the major X-Men fan I am I wanted to get my thoughts out there.  Usually in trailer reviews I take a trailer and analyze it bit by bit.  Not this time.  I would, but I just don’t have the time to dedicate to a formal Review and Explain segment.  So you’re stuck with this little post.

Hello interweb, Nate here!  Finally, here’s part 3 to my Everything Wrong With: “The Dark Knight Returns” series!  One more to go after this one!  Hopefully it won’t take as long to get out there for you guys lol.  Sorry about the wait, by the way!

Spider-man: Homecoming – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  Whoa, that was awesome!  Spoiler free opinion?  Really good movie!  Go see it, you’ll enjoy it.  Trust me, it’s worth the money to see it on the big screen.  From this point on, SPOILER WARNING!  Let me say that again, SPOILER WARNING! One more time SPOILER WARNING!!!  Trust me, you do NOT want to be spoiled.  If you think you’re fine with spoilers, HEY!  *Slaps your face*  Don’t read this until you see the movie!

Side note: Buckle up!  Cause this’ll be a long one!

The Amazing Spider-man 2 – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  FINALLY!!!  The last Spider-man movie before I watch Spider-man: Homecoming!  Which turns out might not be this weekend but next weekend since I’m waiting to see it with my uncle (and no his first name isn’t “Ben”).  However, this does let me take a break from the Spidey films so I can actually sit down and finish my Everything Wrong With: “The Dark Knight Returns” Pt. 3.  Anyways, SPOILER WARNING and leggo!

The Amazing Spider-man – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  I’m gonna be honest, guys, I’m getting a little bit of Spider-man fatigue here lol.  I mean, this is the 4th Spider-man movie I’ve rewatched over the last couple of days.  But we’re almost done so I’m not gonna stop here!  SPOILER WARNING and leggo! (more…)

Spider-man 3 – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So yeah, finally finished rewatching the Sam Raimi Spider-man trilogy.  You could probably see this coming a mile away but: Spider-man 2 is by far the best film of the series, Spider-man being second, and Spider-man 3 being the most disappointing film of the three.  But is it really as bad as everybody remembers?  SPOILER WARNING and leggo!
