X-Men (2000) – Review

x-men-2000Hello 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.

Top Favorite 5 Marvel Comics of 2016

marvel-logoHello 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.

X-Men: Apocalypse – Review

X-Men Apocalypse PosterHello 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.

Everything Wrong With: X-Men Evolution “Mainstream” (My favorite episode)

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!

X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Review and Explained

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?).

X-Men: Battle of the Atom – Review

X-Men Battle of the AtomHello 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.

Top 5 Superhero Cartoons that Got Cancelled Too Soon

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!).

My Opinion on All-New X-Men #40

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Alright, so I’m pretty behind on the current X-Men titles (I talk more about that below) but on Facebook I noticed something rather interesting: Iceman’s gay!  As you can see from the images below (click to enlarge and zoom), in All-New X-Men #40 Iceman, aka Bobby Drake, comes out of the closet.

Valentine’s Day Special – Top 10 Favorite Couples

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Okay, to put it short and simple, I’m a 15-year old guy who enjoys the superhero genre not for the romance but for the action and adventure.  With that said, there has been a few couples that I have liked over the years and since this is the season of love I figured I should make a list about them.  So whether or not the mention of romance makes you go “Aww!” or “Ew!” this is My Top 10 Favorite Couples.

Everything Wrong With: X-Men Evolution “Mutant Crush”

Announcements

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So last month I posted my third installment of SuperheroSins and added a poll asking if I should continue.  It was 1 vote each (someone commented and told me he/she clicked the wrong button) and someone on Facebook said that she liked it.  So here’s the 4th installment.  Now these SuperheroSins aren’t going to be like most of my posts I do (Top 10s/5s, Character Bios, etc.) as I’ll do these either when I have some time in the middle of the week to throw one together or if I have no time to make one of my more formal posts (and by “formal” I mean ones that I actually put effort in).

Also, I’m leaving for a week long vacation to Cancun, Mexico, so I won’t be here to make a post on December 1st.  However, I can make a post a head of time and schedule it for  December 1st so it posts automatically (this does mean that my Facebook followers will have to come and check it out as I won’t make a Facebook link for said post).  So you guys can comment below or on my Facebook page for a Top 10 suggestion and I’ll pick my favorite suggestion and make that the post for December 1st.  Bring me your suggestions before Tuesday and it will be scheduled to post while I’m away.  But be aware that I won’t be able to access the internet very often while in Mexico so I may not reply to comments quickly while I’m gone.  Any questions or comment can be sent either by commenting below, on Facebook, or by emailing me at sablikid626@gmail.com.  With that said and done, on to the sins!
