I’m so glad I splurged on that Playstation 4 earlier this year, because the new Spider-Man video game is spectacular! I daresay it’s the perfect Spider-Man game, with a great story and super-fun gameplay. Barring some sort of 1:1 fully immersive VR experience, the new game from Insomniac is as good as a Spider-Man game can get…until the inevitable sequel!
Video Game Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
The web-slinging is fun, the cityscape is expansive, the fighting is a blast, with a ton of moves and so many web attacks I lose track sometimes; and best of all, the story and the characters are purely perfect Spider-Manery! Spider-Man for the PS4 is an event! And I daresay a sequel is already in the works, which should improve upon everything for an even better game!
I, being the helpful, no-name blogger that I am, have cobbled together a list of things I would like to see in the sequel! And feel free to share your own hopes and dreams in the comments!
Warning: There will be FULL SPOILERS for the game, so tread carefully.
And just like that, Iron Fist totally redeems itself! I loved the second season of Iron Fist! I haven’t been this excited about Marvel’s Netflix Defenders in what feels like a long time. The action was thrilling, the pacing was solid and the characters were full of life and good development. This was a very exciting season of television.
TV Show Rating: 9/10 – Great.
I did not dislike the first season of Iron Fist like most people. I didn’t love it, but I also didn’t hate it. I was largely just fine with it. But I’m very pleased to say that Marvel and Netflix took all of our criticisms to heart, brought in a new showrunner and set about fixing Iron Fist‘s problems. I would have to say that they largely succeed across the board!
First and foremost, the fights are much better choreographed and more fun to watch! This is a show about mystical martial arts, so the martial arts action should be the most important part of the darn show. Iron Fist season 2 makes that happen and is therefore better for it.
Join me after the jump for all my thoughts on the second season of Iron Fist! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the entire season.
I love comic books. I love superhero movies. These things are known and they shouldn’t be very surprising, considering how long I’ve been churning away at this comic book blog with little to no return! Where’s my fame, huh? Why is nobody nominating me for a Bloggie award?
Ahem, anyway, the idea popped into my head the other day that there are a couple of characters where I prefer the movie version to the comic book version.
Seems like a pretty simple idea. I’m a big comic book geek who loves some of the most obscure characters. It’s a little embarrassing when somebody who knows I loves comics asks who my favorite superhero is, and I have to honestly reply “Multiple Man”, and then explain who that even is. Thankfully, we’ve got great superhero movies now, and I can name some of these popular movie versions!
The first season of the DuckTales cartoon revival ended a couple weeks ago, and I finally got around to watching the last string of episodes this past weekend, including the epic finale. Considering how much I’ve ranted about the show on this blog, I wanted to give my thoughts on the first season. For the most part, I liked it!
TV Show Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I was originally going to review the first season of Disenchantment, Matt Groening’s new Netflix cartoon, but I immediately lost all interest in that List of Six after I stopped working on it for a couple days. Mostly I just wanted to write about how much I disliked Elfo.
Whereas I like pretty much everybody on DuckTales and I think it’s a worthy reboot of this beloved cartoon from my childhood. It’s got some obvious flaws here and there, but on a whole, it was an enjoyable show. And I’m excited for future seasons.
Join me after the jump for my full review of DuckTales! There will also be FULL SPOILERS for the first season.
What a time to be a toy fan! This month, I got both the LEGO Voltron set and a proper Marvel Legends Multiple Man action figure! I’ve been crowing about wanting LEGO Voltron since at least this List of Six in 2015, and the Multiple Man action figure has been my hill to die on since at least the very first year of this blog! And now both are mine!
So how about I make some more toy predictions and hope to get lucky?
I love the Build-A-Figure concept. It’s pretty darn fun. Basically, when a new line of about half a dozen action figures come out, each box contains a part of a bigger action figure. Buy the entire line and collect each part and you can build the big one. I own a bunch from over the years. I’ve got the giant Sentinel from one of the earliest Build-A-Figure lines. I’ve got Onslaught. I’ve got the Blob. They are so much fun! And there’s one very specific big character that I want to see next…
So I’ve made a whole list of big characters who should get Build-A-Figures! Join me after the jump for the list! And please share your own wants and dreams in the comments!
