Well, as of Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, we are officially into Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the highly divisive Phase Four is finally and fully in our rear-view mirror. With the unprecedented success of, and overall affection for, the MCU’s efforts through its first three phases, a backslide in Phase Four was inevitable. Though exactly how far the slide regressed the … Continue reading MCU Phase 4: Ups And Downs
It’s part two of Stew’s look back at the 72 new release movies he saw in 2022. Look, I didn’t want to take up your whole life and rank all SEVENTY-TWO of them, but I did want to shout out the ones I can unquestionably recommend. So I decided to do this Top 30 list! We reviewed #30-21 last time. Now we are onto the … Continue reading Top Thirty New Release Movies Of 2022, #20-11
For the first time since Phase 2, the MCU accomplished something with Thor: Love & Thunder. It disappointed me. Which is not to say that I’m going to blast the newest MCU offering or even that I think it’s a “bad” movie. It’s just been THAT LONG since an MCU movie was not at least as good as I expected it to be. To recap: … Continue reading Thor Love & Thunder Review

I wrote this list before Phase 4 of the MCU started because I was saving it for when I set up my new site schedule in April 2022. But I wanted to get a headstart, so I was making and starting lists several months ago. That was dumb! I had to edit it TWICE throughout Phase 4 to kick two movies off the bottom and … Continue reading Top Ten: Movies in the MCU
As a young lad, there were comics I would buy on a regular basis and comics I would get on a whim or if something caught my eye. The one comic I would get on a semi-regular basis was What If. As the name implies, it presented familiar comic stories and explored the possibility of things turning out in a completely different way. Often, it … Continue reading MCU Disney+ Year In Review – What If…?
It’s funny; I swear I’ve been saying for years that I want my DC movies to feel more like the MCU. What the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest offering, Eternals, gives us instead is an MCU movie that feels like it would have been more at home in the recent DC filmography. Which is to say that I was not a particularly big fan of this … Continue reading Eternals Review
Okay. Okay, okay. I am more calm than I was when I wrote that review *checks clock* 15 minutes ago. Let’s look at this more rationally and critically. Guys, this movie is truly amazing. Just… I’m still floored. I want to turn around and go watch it again. Okay, it turns out I am really bad at objectivity. I am also saying “Okay” a LOT. … Continue reading Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings Review

If there’s one thing the MCU is undeniably good for, it’s making me think “Boy, I hope I don’t die before _____”. For years, it was “Boy, I hope I don’t die before we resolve all this Thanos stuff in the MCU!”. And I didn’t! It was great. But I also had nothing left to look forward to except a pandemic. Well today, Kevin Feige, … Continue reading Ranking My Excitement On The New MCU Trailer
It’s probably me. I’m probably the sucker. I really just enjoy continuity in my funnybooks. I want things that happened before to MATTER. Elseworlds and What If’s are fun, but ultimately, I want there to be a big, long line of continuity that carries through the “main” books of a comics universe. If what happened before doesn’t make a difference to what matters now, then… … Continue reading Top Ten: Best Comics’ Alternate Universes
Franchises. No, not… I mean, MOVIE franchises. Why make one good movie when you can make somewhere between three and a hundred movies of varying quality, right? Hollywood is ON BOARD with this notion. If a movie is released to more than 2000 theaters nationwide, you can almost bet someone behind it all envisions it becoming a sprawling film empire. As someone who grew up … Continue reading Top Ten: Movie Franchises
So it has been revealed that, after quite a lot of speculation and hoping, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire will, in fact, appear in the third entry of the MCU Spider-Man flicks. Obviously take this with a teensy-tiny grain of salt because it’s not Official-With-A-Capital-O yet, but it’s being reported multiple places. As the link above states: A Sony source “closely involved” with the film, … Continue reading Spider-Men!
