The Top 6 Fishiest Mer-Ladies in Comics
The live action Little Mermaid movie comes out this weekend and I have decided to do a List of Six about mer-ladies. Not mermaids, unfortunately. I thought I could find six superhero mermaids in comics, but it was not to be. There need to be more mermaid superheroes. But I digress! There are still more than enough underwater superhero ladies to make a list. They don’t all need a fish tail.
I don’t think it’s weird at all that both Marvel and DC have their own aquatic hero: Aquaman and Namor. It makes sense to me. The ocean is cool. Atlantis is cool. Then both comic companies went ahead and started giving both characters tons of sidekicks. And in honor of The Little Mermaid, we’re going to look at the lady sidekicks in particular. And then, surprise surprise, they’re not just Aquaman or Namor sidekicks on this list. I did find some comic book mermaids to throw in, for fun!
So join me after the jump for a list that I wish was exclusively about superhero mermaids, but I had to make some concessions.Read the rest of this entry
6 Franchises for Which I Want a Big, Open World Video Game
I’m on vacation this week, doing a whole lot of relaxing at home and not working. I timed my vacation with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and you best believe I am enjoying my time in this big, open Hyrule of a world. I love open world video games like Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom. Last year we got Sonic Frontiers, this year we had Hogwarts Legacy and will be getting another Spider-Man game, with the big, open Manhattan. More franchises should have games like these.
All my favorite games are big open world games. World of Warcraft, the Grand Theft Auto series, the really good Spider-Man games, Red Dead Redemption and its sequel, Witcher 3, the Assassin’s Creed games; the list goes on and on. I love a big, open map with a bunch of stuff to do, both big and small. I love being able to dress up my character in clothing and armor I’ve scoured the map to find. I love having the freedom to do side activities, like hunting in RDR2.
So with all that being sad, and to make this list as easy as possible on my chill vacation, what are some franchise I’d like to see given the big, open world video game treatment. If they can remake the entirety of Hogwarts castle in a video game, they can surely make these dreams of mine come true.Read the rest of this entry
6 Thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
We have come to the end of an era. After years of waiting, a ton of behind-the-scenes madness, and a bunch of Marvel movie phases, we’ve finally reached the grand finale of the Guardians of the Galaxy series. I’m excited and sad in equal measure. It’s a shame we’ll never seen this team again, written and directed by James Gunn. But I also feel like we’ve had a lot of adventures with them, and it’ll be good to let them rest.
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great
I had a great time with this film. I have few, if any, real complaints. I have loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movies since the beginning. I loved the comics that inspired the movies, I loved the heck out of those first trailers, and I have all the faith in the world in James Gunn. The man is at the top of his career right now, putting out golden projects left and right. So I’m very pleased that Vol. 3 turned out as good as it is. Everyone involved should be pleased and proud.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts and full review on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the film. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments down below.Read the rest of this entry
6 Characters I’m Willing to Let Die in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
The highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is coming out this week and I am very excited! It’s gonna be a blast, and I even took the day off from work so that I can go to the early Thursday afternoon showing in my local theater! But the awesomeness comes with some bittersweetness, as this will be our last adventure with these Guardians. James Gunn is moving on to other pastures and has said he’s done. So even if Marvel continues the franchise, it’s going to be entirely different, probably.
And everybody is pretty sure that a lot of Guardians are going to die
Now, I don’t want anybody to die. I don’t require character deaths to give a movie stakes or real emotion. But death is probably inevitable in this movie for someone. So who could I handle dying? If somebody has to die, will I be OK if certain characters bite the dust over others? I’m going to have to be! This might be a morbid list, but fate has brought us to this point, and some of these characters are going to have to face the music.
Join me after the jump for the six characters I’m willing to have die in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.Read the rest of this entry
6 Things I Want to See in a New Rey Skywalker Movie
A week or so ago, the good people at Star Wars Celebration announced a slew of new film and TV projects, including the return of Daisy Ridley as Rey Skywalker. Many of us had written off the sequel movies and their era as dead in the water. They were not well liked by the fans, and we’ve only really heard some bad stories coming out of production. So this was a surprise, to be a sure, but a welcome one.
I am not one of those bitter fans who hate all things Star Wars these days. I love all things Star Wars. I’m enjoying the third season of The Mandalorian and see nothing wrong with it. I don’t have very high opinions of the sequel films, but I liked the characters, and I’ll watch any future Star Wars movie that comes to theaters. And I’d be perfectly happy to see another movie set beyond those films, to keep the story going. Rey is the perfect character to follow. I don’t have any problems with the character whatsoever — even though I wish she’d remained a nobody, and not Palpatine’s granddaughter. That was dumb.
Join me after the jump for six things I want to see in a new Rey movie set after the sequel trilogy. And feel free to share some of your own ideas in the comments below!Read the rest of this entry
