X-Men: Dark Phoenix Has A Chance To Beat Expectations As A Bad Rehash of X-Men: Last Stand

The quality of the X-Franchise movies hasn’t been that great. With the exception of X-Men: First ClassLogan and Deadpool,the reception for Fox’s mutant cinematic universe has bern mixed at best. The last movie, X-Men: Apocalypse didn’t do much the elevate the franchise after Days of Future Past reset the timeline. Hopefully, Dark Phoenix will be the sendoff the franchise deservers before Marvel/Disney reboots and folds The X-Men into the MCU properly.

The Final Trailer for Avengers: Endgame Is Just As Epic As We Expected

The Final Trailer for Avengers: Endgame Is Just As Epic As We Expected

Has there ever been such epic anticipation for a movie? The last time I was this excited for a movie was standing in line for hours to see the first viewing of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. That may not have turned out as expected, but Avengers: Endgame is in the hands of The Russo Brothers so at the very least, it’ll be entertaining. Too many questions to ask.. Too many endings to predict. We’re a little more than a month out and I can’t wait!

#WatchingAgain: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

I’m a sucker for any type of zombie movies, but I have to admit I wasn’t expecting much from a literary-inspired alternate reality of Jane Austen’s classic with added zombies. But this turned out to be a real dope flick. Worth routine rewatching.

#ToddyAwards2018: Best TV Shows

2018 was the year of the streaming series. For the geek, this was a wet dream of content. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pulled itself out of cancellation hell to score another two seasons after an incredible time/space storyline. Youtube Originals finally came into it’s own with two awesome standout series Impusle and OriginNetflix doubled down on original content, and even though they cancelled most of the Marvel series, Daredevil. Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and yes, even Iron Fist delivered top-notch seasons. But the award has to go to The Expanse once again. Possibly the greatest sci-fi tv show since Battlestar Galactica, The Expanse continued the growing tension between Earth, Mars and The Belt leading to an incredible discovery and a bolt new direction by the end of the season. Sy Fy Channel had the balls to cancel the show, but luckily Amazon Prime made the save by picking up the series for season 4.

The Monsterverse Starts To Take Shape in Godzilla 2: King of The Monsters

The Monsterverse Starts To Take Shape in Godzilla 2: King of The Monsters

2014’s Godzilla reboot was pretty good. it did a lot of redeeming after the 1998 hot mess. We got the monster returning to his city stomping roots and some nice foreshadowing for what’s to come. There were rumors of an upcoming crossover with King Kong, but I didn’t see the classic monster mash up we’re getting next year in Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters. Rodan, Mothra, Monster X.. all the classic monsters are showing up. Let’s pray they can keep the momentum going.

Legend of The Dark Knight?!? Yo!! I Can’t Wait for The 5th and Final Season of Gotham. It Looks Like It’s Going To Be Nuts!!

What started out as the Batman mythos rooted in reality has slowly devolved into one of most comic book-oriented shows on TV. Everyone talks about the Arrowverse and Marvel’s Television Universe, but Gotham has quietly been putting out an awesome Batman show, centered on Jim Gordon’s battle against an absent Batman’s Rogue Gallery. This coming season reaches a crazy end as everyone evolves into their classic comic character. We even may see young Bruce Wayne finallky don the cape and cowl. Gotham season 5 premiers in early 2019.
