Ben and Daniel rank all the MCU films!
Now that Avengers: Endgame has been in theatres for a week it’s time to talk spoilers.
Ben and Daniel spoil Avengers: Endgame!
We chat with director Marisa Stotter about She Makes Comics, a documentary film about the untold history of women in comic books, celebrating female creators and fans alike.
And now, all the film, game, and comic news that’s fit to print. Star Wars Episode VII finds a director, THQ auctions off big name game franchises, Nintendo unveils new Wii U titles, The Sixth Gun gets an NBC pilot, and Rob Liefeld writes a screenplay.
In a busy week for little seen movies coming to DVD and Blu-ray, we take a look at Nicolas Cage in Seeking Justice, Willem Dafoe in The Hunter, director Morgan Spurlock's look at the San Diego Comic-Con, the offbeat comedy Jesus Henry Christ, Jon Voight in Beyond, and the aptly titled dark comedy Some Guy Who Kills People.
The Amazing Spider-Man still faithfully tells the origin story of Marvel Comics’ famed web-slinger for the first half, but a stellar cast raises the material past the bar set by Sam Raimi’s franchise and the second half wisely becomes its own movie from that point onward, even if the more original second half has more problems than the part haters will probably unjustly dismiss as redundant.
Documentarian Morgan Spurlock turns his attention to the San Diego Comic-Con in his most well rounded and, dare we say, heartwarming film to date.
I should preface this review with one caveat: I've never read or watched — or heard of Thor at all, really — before seeing the film. As you can probably guess from the preceding sentence, I don't even know what format of text or media from which its story originates. Colour me uneducated and largely incurious. Instead of attempting to hide this gaping hole in my nerd credentials, I'm sure that highlighting my lack of Thor knowledge will make for a pretty interesting review.
Cashing in on his esteemed and legendary career, Stan Lee's return to creating new comic characters was heavily publicized by Boom! Studios. Awesome. Stan Lee was back! Except when the first issue of Soldier Zero arrived on comic stands, it was a creative travesty.
