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!

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.

My Opinion on X-Men: Apocalypse Billboard Controversy

X-Men Apocalypse BillboardHello interweb, Nate here.  So X-Men: Apocalypse it theaters this past weekend and yes I saw it.  I’ve been slow to review it because to be perfectly honest I really don’t want to.  It was bad as to be expected from a Bryan Singer X-Man movie and as the huge X-Men fan that I am it did kinda just annoy me on how poorly they adapted the characters for the film.  Now with that said, I will review the movie and that review will probably be up either tonight or tomorrow but in the mean time the advertisement for the film seems to be attracting more controversy than the film itself.

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?).
