Hello interweb, Nate here! So I claim to be such a huge X-Men fan and yet I’ve only seen X-Men: Days of Future’s Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and I believe I’ve only reviewed the later on here. (I would give it a quick review but that movie was so forgettable I’d have to rewatch it first.) Hopefully, I’ll be able to watch and review X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: First Class sooner than later but I don’t know when that’ll be so no promises. With all that out of the way, let’s get to the review! Also, not sure whether this is necessary for a 17 year old movie, but SPOILER WARNING just to be on the safe side. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! Last year I tried and failed to do a Christmas series special thingamajig with my 90’cember. So, why don’t I do something simpler! I’ll count down the top 5 Comics each company has produced this year as well as all the comic book movies! So here’s my Top 5 favorite Marvel comics of 2016!
Funny side note: Originally my idea was to have a top 10 best comics with Marvel and DC on a combined list and then a top 10 worst comics of both companies still, but I liked almost everything being published right now so pretty much the only bad comics I could think of is Civil War II and New Avengers because I didn’t like either of those titles. Even the comics I read that I thought weren’t amazing still wasn’t that bad, just okay.
Hello interweb, Nate here. Why does the X-Men, (un)arguably the greatest superhero team to ever hit comics, get such terrible movies? Now I really didn’t want to make this review but in the end I’ve been reviewing these movies sense Ant-Man (excluding Deadpool since I can’t watch it yet and I haven’t seen Batman V Superman yet) so let’s just get this over with. Also just in case you care: spoiler warning. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. So I haven’t posted anything in a while and that’s mainly because of how busy I’ve been lately. I was originally going to review the newest Suicide Squad and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailers, and I will later this week, but I ultimately decided to do a SuperheroSins episode for my favorite episode of my favorite comic book based cartoon. I should also mention that this episode is the third episode of season three so if you are watching the series and you don’t want to be spoiled than I’d suggest not reading the rest of this post. Now just to give a general background to this episode: mutants have been broadcast worldwide so everyone now know they exist, people are afraid of them, and now they’re dealing with the prejudice and bigotry that you’d expect from an X-Men story.
Now this episode is my favorite mainly because it’s just such a deep episode for a children’s cartoon and it ultimately shows why I love the X-Men as a whole. I would elaborate but I feel like I should just let the episode speak for itself and my commentary as I review it below. Now the previous X-Men: Evolution episodes I commented on where found on Marvel’s official YouTube channel but they have recently taken them down so I had to find this episode from a different channel. Now this set up is a little odd as the video I found was about 30 min long but the episode just restarts half way through; so you don’t need to see the whole video. With that said, let’s get started! (more…)
Warning: All of what I’m about to say may very well be me speculating and theorizing. So if I say something that contradicts something that is revealed later than that is why. Also just to be on the safe side I’m just going to say there are possible spoilers below but I highly doubt there’s anything that will ruin the movie if I mention it.
Hello interweb, Nate here. So sorry about how late this trailer review and explain is but I’ve been drowning in post-Christmas break homework assignments. Before I begin this, I should briefly comment about 90’cember since I did promise four posts from it and I failed terribly to deliver. I feel like at this point I might as well just not worry about it and continue on but I did decide to do a Comixplanation on the Death of Superman storyline. Not sure when I’ll do it since I also need to get my Ant-man review up and there are a couple of other posts I have yet to reveal that I really want to make but I’ll definitely make sure to do Death of Superman since that post seemed to be the most anticipate of the four. With all that said, time to crack this nut open and see what we find (did that make any sense?). (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. So sorry about how 90’cember is going. I thought I’d be able to get the posts out weekly for December but obviously that’s not the case. I will try to get the remaining three 90’cember posts posted but it will end up stretching to January; although I won’t let it get to February. With that aside, 2016 is turning out to be a fantastic year for superhero comic book movies so I thought I’d count down the 5 films I’m most excited for!
Hello interweb, Nate here. So despite my love for the X-Men, I have to admit that I’ve fallen behind on the team. Now All-New, All-Different Marvel is starting up again with new X-Men titles but I’ve heard good things and bad things about Brian Michael Bendis’s Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men titles from “Marvel Now!” so I thought I’d go back and read those two titles before jumping on the current ones. So while binge-reading (is that a thing?) these two X-Men comics, I finally got around to reading the 2013 mega crossover event: X-Men: Battle of the Atom. This 10-issue story crossed over every X-Men title that was going on at the time so if you love the X-Men as much as I do than it is definitly a must read. But I’ve stalled long enough, so let’s get to the review! Also, spoiler warning. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. So since I haven’t posted anything in the last few weeks (baring that one update), and I recently finished reading this Secret Wars tie-in, I figured why not make a really quick review of it? I do apologize if this review isn’t very thorough but I do feel like I should get something out there for you guys. I probably will make something by Monday. So let’s jump right into it! (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. So we’ve all had that feeling when our favorite cartoon was cancelled for stupid reasons. Some cartoons are understandable, other cartoons were just so good that it blows my mind why it got such a short run (Invader Zim anyone?). Now this isn’t a list of cartoons that got a good run that I just would’ve liked to continue (like Teen Titans), this is a list of really good cartoons that only got 1 or 2 seasons and possibly ended on a cliffhanger (which is the worst!).
Hello interweb, Nate here. Sorry that this did not go up Monday but I guess I needed more time to finish this list than expected and thus I started making this later than I should’ve. Now I am officially out of school for the summer and since this is my first post for summer of 2015 I figured I should start out with a bang! So, how about I do my favorite X-Men? If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you would know that I absolutely love the X-Men. I love the X-Men more then the Justice League, Avengers, or even the Teen Titans. Now if you’ve read my Top 10 Favorite Superheroes list than you already know the top 4 already, however what about the other 6? Plus if you haven’t read that post yet than you probably don’t know my top 4. Either way, here they are!
