Watch Wednesday #33: Cloak and Dagger

I mentioned this yesterday, but considering there's 5,000+ Marvel characters to work with, none of us are actually surprised at the announcements for more Marvel movies to come (a total of nine films set to release between 2020 and 2022).  And yeah, Marvel has a great niche on Netflix (Jessica Jones season two?  SO GOOD.… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #33: Cloak and Dagger

Watch Wednesday #32: 5 Superhero Movies I’ve Never Seen

If you know anything about me, you know that I'm deeply invested in all things superhero.  Comics, television shows, movies--there's a lot to witness in this genre, and I've read, watched, and geeked out about a big chunk of it.  However, considering the sheer amount of what's out there, from live-action to documentary films, inevitably… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #32: 5 Superhero Movies I’ve Never Seen

Watch Wednesday #31: Mob Psycho 100 is the Greatest Acid Trip I’ve Ever Seen

Okay, I'm going to be honest here, I've never actually had an acid trip, so clearly me terming Mob Psycho 100 as the "greatest acid trip I've ever seen" should be the "closest thing to an acid trip I've ever seen".  But that's a really freaking long sentence just for the point of accuracy, don't you think?… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #31: Mob Psycho 100 is the Greatest Acid Trip I’ve Ever Seen

Watch Wednesday #30: Iron Man–the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Beginning

It's hard to imagine that there was a time that Marvel was simply a niche, a time when comics were a pigeonhole exploit, and a time where even Spider-Man was a tough sell.  But pre-Iron Man, there was a time where Marvel Studios didn't exist, and even their characters and teams that did see the… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #30: Iron Man–the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Beginning

Watch Wednesday #29: Cellular

Okay, I literally spent the better part of today thinking it was Thursday.  Yes.  I am that person.  So I basically spent my entire day planning a Thursday Threads post only to realize, oh, it's Wednesday.  Today is Wednesday.  Watch Wednesday. Luckily for me, inspiration struck in the weirdest of places. Cellular So, today's Valentine's… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #29: Cellular

Watch Wednesday #28: A Silent Voice Deserved the Win

Both Your Name as well as A Silent Voice were snubbed in the Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature Film--in favor for, believe it or not, the likes of Boss Baby.  Now, we all know that the Academy Awards are more political than an actual representation of what's actually the "best of the best", but it certainly… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #28: A Silent Voice Deserved the Win

Watch Wednesday #27: Ant-Man and the Wasp Will Answer Civil War’s Cliffhanger

As of the release of Black Panther in the next few weeks, we will officially have eighteen Marvel films to enjoy.  Um, wow, that's a lot, especially considering 2018 still has two more Marvel movies after T'Challa's tale.  Not to mention what's coming in 2019! We're currently in Phase 3 of Marvel's cinematic universe, and with this year… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #27: Ant-Man and the Wasp Will Answer Civil War’s Cliffhanger

Watch Wednesday #26: I’m Not a Robot

One of the things about Korean television that I enjoy is the fact that they have no fear about going into a series and saying, "One season, one story.  Done."  In English-speaking television, this is rare enough to snag alternative titles like "miniseries" or "limited engagement".  For Korean TV, it's pretty much the norm.  They… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #26: I’m Not a Robot

Watch Wednesday #25: Black Panther Trailer Screencaps

With its February release (THANKFULLY) closing in, Black Panther has us pumped for what will be a movie of a lesser-known hero who must face his royal birthright in the face of adversity after his father's death.  T'Challa's story, filled with minority characters who dodge their typical tropes, is long overdue.  There has been a long-unfulfilled… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #25: Black Panther Trailer Screencaps

Watch Wednesday #24: I Wish I Had Superpowers

I mentioned this in last week's Watch Wednesday post, but my first foray into the world of superheroes, the group that started it all, was the X-Men.  Of course, the idea of randomly developing superpowers thanks to a genetic mutation is an attractive idea to every nerd there ever was.  If any of us were… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #24: I Wish I Had Superpowers
