My thoughts on the “Captain Marvel” trailer

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Hey, remember when I said I’d start posting every Friday?  I f***ing lied!  It’s really hard to keep a consistent schedule when you just don’t have the motivation to do it.  Depression sucks kids, don’t do it!  Ok ok jokes aside…Marvel FINALLY released the Captain Marvel trailer today and of course I have some thoughts.  I wouldn’t say I’m a huge Carol Danvers fan (I do like Kamala Khan though) but I am a fan of the fact that we finally get a Marvel film with a female lead and especially a lead as powerful as Captain Marvel.  I’ve heard rumors said pretty much since 2012 that we’d eventually get a Black Widow movie, but I never really cared for that idea.  Because quite frankly, Black Widow just never really appealed to me.  She has no super powers, which is fine neither does Hawkeye, Iron Man, Batman, etc.  And I love all those characters!  But at least all those characters have some personality quirk or interesting mythos and stories that holds my interest and with BW, she’s just kind of boring.  So Carol Danvers seems like a great character for Marvel’s first female-lead movie and I’m pretty happy about that.

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!

Avengers: Infinity War – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So, this review took me forever to make.  I actually did see this movie opening weekend, but I had my college finals to trudge through so I’ve been busy.  Anyhoo, non-spoiler review?  This movie is amazing, watch it!!!  Now, SPOILER WARNING!!!! Leggo!

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.

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…)

Ranking the Most Anticipated Comic Book Movies of 2018

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So it’s been tradition for three years now to rank the movies I’m in most anticipation for in the upcoming year.  This year’s no different.  This year is really interesting.  While most of the films this year seems to be pretty much trash, there are some gems in there.  And these gems are huge!  So, leggo!

Ranking the 2017 Comic Book Movies

Hello interweb, Nate here!  Few things before we get started.  First, I apologize for the lack of content on this site as of late.  As I’ve stated before, I recently started college and that has been taking up more of my time.  Whenever I’m not studying, I’m just too tired to really care about blogging to I just don’t.  I am hoping that will change in 2018 since I do enjoy doing this.  Second, I have not reviewed Thor: Ragnarok or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and I have yet to see Justice League.  Which means unfortunately this year my ranking will be incomplete.  I apologize for that.  Although, let’s face it, Justice League would’ve probably been the worst movie of the year considering all the other movies out.  Third, my original Christmas special idea didn’t really attract anyone’s attention so I decided not to do it.  Sorry!

Although, I do want to ask.  Do you guys even want to see me review Thor and GotG?  I’m still on break so I have time to review these films if you want me to.  Although at this point, it feels like a review would be too late to be relevant.  It’s up to you guys at this point!  With that said, leggo!

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.

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!

Top 10 Favorite LGBT Characters – Pride Month Special

Hello interweb, Nate here!  My first Pride Month special!  I’ve always meant to do one of these but every time I found the time to do one Pride Month was over and I didn’t really want to do a Pride Month special if it wasn’t during Pride.  I also wanted to get this out on the 26th since that marked the second anniversary of gay marriage being legalized in all 50 states in America, but I got busy on a Youth retreat and thus didn’t have the time to complete this.  Maybe in future years I’ll be able to create a tradition of releasing a Pride special every year on June 26th but don’t get your hopes up.  Enough beating around the bush, this list consists of my Top 10 Favorite characters in comics or comic book adaptations that identify as LGBT.  Leggo!
