Major spoilers for Amazing Spider-Man #799 and mild plot details for #800! Here we are at the conclusion of Dan Slott's final Spider-Man story! With the exception of #801, which will serve as an epilogue to his decade-long stint on the title.Go Down Swinging reaches a thrilling, funny and emotional conclusion in this 80-page milestone issue. I'll be getting to that soon,...
By now, you've likely seen Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studio's latest cinematic triumph. This film brings together a decade of storytelling in a spectacular manner. It takes inspiration from both the original 1991 event The Infinity Gauntlet and 2010's Infinity. Today, I'm going to be focusing on what it takes from Infinity Gauntlet, the comic that started it all. Needless to say, spoilers for both...
Major spoilers for Amazing Spider-Man #797-8 and mild spoilers for #799. Dan Slott's ten-year run on Amazing Spider-Man is drawing to a close, and he's going out with a bang. Parts one and two of "Go Down Swinging" were great. I've immensely enjoyed the return of Norman Osborn as the Green Goblin and now the Red Goblin. Two of Spider-Man's most lethal foes fused...
Another Year, Another Oscars Monday saw the 80th Academy Awards ceremony. Amongst fierce competition from acclaimed dramas like Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Darkest Hour, genre films Get Out and The Shape of Water stood out. I did not expect either of these films to be nominated for, let alone win, Best Picture. And yet, Shape of Water won Best Picture and Director, and Get Out won Best Original Screenplay. A Best...
  Contains major spoilers for Doomsday Clock #2 and minor spoilers for #3.  The plot thickens in Doomsday Clock #3, and thankfully it's less cliche-ridden than this sentence. Rorschach and Batman is one of those meetings comic book fans often imagine, but never expect to see. Rorschach is a lot less stable than Bruce, but they're both tortured vigilantes. I'm curious where this whole storyline of...
The plot thickens in Doomsday Clock #2. This issue delivers on the promise of the Watchmen and the DCU colliding. We won't see the full consequences of this meeting until next issue, but what we do see this issue is well worth it. I won't delve into the plot too much, but essentially: Ozymandias, Rorschach, Marionette and Mime travel from their universe...
The Rebirth Special kicked off a new era for DC Comics over a year ago. Since Batman found the smiley-face button, comic book fans have been speculating on what larger purpose the Watchmen will serve within the Rebirth mystery. To bring these characters into the larger DCU is a risky move. Watchmen is one of the most iconic comic books of all time and cannot...
When I say that Thor: Ragnarok is the best Thor movie, that probably doesn't seem like high praise. It's been a while since I've seen Thor, but at the time it was an impressive film just for putting Asgard on screen. Kenneth Branagh brought the gravitas that the story needed. Thor: The Dark World was a mess. It's okay, but I can safely say it's...
Today I'm going to be talking about my favourite plot twists in various media. A well-done plot twist can change the game and keep the audience/reader on their toes. A bad plot twist comes out of nowhere, with nothing to even indicate its existence, and often doesn't really make any sense. A good one has been set-up, however subtly....
The sequel. Something that is often highly anticipated, and can often be a letdown. Today I’ll be looking at ten video game sequels that either equalled or improved the first game. I won’t be including reboots, just direct sequels. In no particular order, except for number one. Without further ado… 10. Age of Empires III I’ve never been a big strategy...
Today I'll be talking about some of the coolest transformations in media. These transformations have to be something that changes the physiology of a character instantly, so people who trained (Batman) or use technological enhancements (Iron Man) don't count. I've taken these from comic books, cartoons video games and anime to make a fairly broad list, and it's in...
