‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Was an Experience…

Wow.  Just wow.

I took the chance to see Avengers:  Infinity War last night (Apr. 28, 2018), not really knowing what to expect.  I heard the ending was crazy (which it was), when I viewed Avengers:  Age of Ultron nearly two years ago I remember walking out of the theatre a bit disappointed, and over the years, I’ve learned that having so many great characters and/or actors in one film can be hit or miss.  Last night I left the movie theatre with my mind blown…in a good way.

Just a quick synopsis:  Thanos—the purple bad guy that the MCU’s been teasing us with for the past six years—finally does something and decides to rule the universe with the help of the Infinity Gauntlet and all six of the Infinity Stones.  It’s up to The Avengers to stop him, but to the chagrin of humanity, they’re scattered across the universe and not exactly on speaking terms (Tony and Steve).  Thankfully, they gain a little help from their friends:  The Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange (yes, those Beatles puns were intentional).  The stakes have never been higher.

Thanos (Alt)

I know what you’re thinking:  “We already know that much about the movie from the trailers and TV commercials!”  Well, that’s all I’m able to tell you without spoiling the film.  I’ll just speak on the other factors of Infinity War I enjoyed without getting deep into the plot.  First of all, this is one of the darkest movies in the MCU, and I liked that they decided to take The Avengers series to the next level the way they did.  Once again, I can’t speak too much on the subject without revealing major plot points, but trust me…the darker tone is well worth the price of admission.

All the actors did a great job, and the film was very well written as well as brilliantly handled.  I never got the feeling of there being too many cooks (The Expendables), or that the characters were all fighting for screen time (Age of Ultron).  Without broadcasting too much of the storyline, the characters were basically grouped off in different areas for the duration of the movie.  Steve, Bucky, T’Challa and the rest of Team Cap from Captain America:  Civil War (including Bruce, Vision, and Rhodey this go around) were mostly in Wakanda.  Thor, Rocket, and Groot took a trip to Nidavellir.  The remaining Guardians travel to Knowhere and later meet up with Doctor Strange, Tony and Spider-Man in Titan.  It never felt as if one character had too much focus or not enough.  Each player had equal time in the spotlight.  One thing I really like about the Russo Brothers is that they know how to handle an ensemble cast, as they more than proved when they took the helm of Civil War back in 2016.

Infinity War (Alt)

I have to echo many movie reviewers’ take on Thanos; I like the fact that he’s a fleshed out villain—much like Loki and Erik Killmonger—and he’s more than just an evildoer wrecking havoc for the sake of evil.  It’s revealed that he actually has a heart and feels genuine love…or at least his version of it.  Thanos is also a formidable opponent—as we all figured—but he turns out to commit deeds that are even worse than what we imagined, for a purpose we never would have thought possible.  The Avengers definitely have their work cut out for them.

Thor - Who the Hell are You Guys (Alt)

What I really loved about Infinity War was how the movie portrayed my baby Thor. When it comes to the Avengers movies, sometimes it feels that my sweetie is a bit underutilized, at least in my opinion.  Even though the first Avengers film still stands firm as my favorite out of the MCU, Thor didn’t really have a chance to shine, which in some respects is understandable, since he had to share the screen with his other teammates.  However, in Infinity War, Thor doesn’t hold back a damn thing, and he comes for Thanos with a vengeance, showing that he truly is mighty.  Thor is so badass in this film, that there’s a key scene where he appears in all his glory, and I kid you not, everyone in the theatre applauded.  I love that man.

Now onto the things I didn’t care for, which are small and minuscule.  Wanda’s (Scarlett Witch) accent kept changing from American to slightly Northern European.  She had a  thick Russian-esque accent in Age of Ultron and Civil War.  Pick one, boo.  Another small thing is that sometimes the transition from scene to scene would be a bit jarring, especially if it would say, switch from Earth to a completely atypical planet, but once again, that wasn’t really a biggie.  As I said before, the scenes clashed just a tiny bit, but the difference wasn’t completely overwhelming.  Oh yeah, and I didn’t like Black Widow with blonde hair.  Just sayin’.  Still ain’t feelin’ Thor’s haircut, but I’m over it.  Other than that, the movie was excellent.

In conclusion, if you haven’t seen Avengers:  Infinity War, get off your badonkadonk and go see it.  It’s worth the price of admission.  Don’t be cheap.  😛😛

‘Jessica Jones’ Season Two Review

What’s up, y’all?  As I mentioned in my previous post regarding Mo’Nique, one of the many reasons I didn’t boycott Netflix was because I refused to miss the second season of Jessica Jones (I don’t plan on missin’ Luke Cage, either).  So, when I learned the new season was set to air on March 8, I couldn’t wait to see it.  My mom and I practically watched it all in three days.  That being said, despite season two of Jessica Jones being interesting, it wasn’t without its flaws.

Jessica Jones - Thumbs Up (Alt)

The current season has Jessica dealing with the fallout after killing the sociopathic Kilgrave and investigating IGH, the lab that experimented on her after her near-fatal car accident and provided her with superhuman abilities.  Malcolm is still working alongside Jessica as her “associate,” although he’s treated more like an annoying neighbor that’s a glutton for punishment.  Trish also gives Jessica a hand by using her celebrity status and connections, but deep down, she wishes she could do more; not only with Jessica’s case, but to help people in general.  Jeri Hogarth (who’ll always be Trinity to me—just sayin’) is still around, but Jessica isn’t on speaking terms with her after Hogarth caused her wife’s brutal murder by allowing Kilgrave to escape Jessica’s grasp…again.  However, Hogarth gets some life-altering news that could possibly soften her evil demeanor…or does it?  In the process of learning more about IGH, Jessica uncovers some seriously disturbing things about the company, as well as her past.

I can’t go any further without giving some major spoilers, but as I said before, this season just wasn’t as great as the first one.  The episodes started out strong, but they started to lose a bit of steam midway through.  The first season also had this issue, but the difference is, season one began to fizzle out around episode 11 or 12.  They may want to stick to just 10 episodes in the future.  Another thing that was interesting—and was also a detriment in a way—was that there was no clear villain.  Season one lets us know from the get-go that Kilgrave was the bad guy.  The dude was just evil incarnate, and he always managed to slip away from Jessica and/or stay two steps ahead of her.  That’s what made the show so intriguing.  This time around, the antagonists—and I use that term loosely—weren’t really bad.  On one hand, it was compelling to watch antagonists that weren’t malicious, as it’s very rarely seen in a series about a superhero.  On the other hand, with no real villain, the drama fades a bit, and the show loses its magnetism.  Hence, the reason some of the luster faded sometime around episode eight.

Jessica Jones 2

The only person that can be listed as an actual villain is newcomer Pryce Cheng, but Cheng is more of an aggravating nuisance than a real threat, which brings me to my other gripe about the new season.  The new men featured in this season of Jessica Jones are hella good looking, but I didn’t care for them as characters.  Pryce is a rival PI that wants to take out the competition by any means necessary, and the other newcomer is Oscar Arocho, Jessica’s new building super and eventual love interest.  As I said before, Cheng got on my nerves, and for the first half of the season, so did Oscar, as his attitude towards Jessica is just as shitty as Pryce’s when she first meets him.  When Oscar finally acts like he has some home training and Jessica falls for him, their scenes lack any serious chemistry.  This is no criticism against actors JR Ramirez and Terry Chen; their performances were good (besides, I always loved JR Ramirez as Julio in Power.  I’m still mad he got killed off the show!).  I just could’ve done without the characters themselves.  Worst of all, Luke doesn’t make a single appearance this season.  His absence was definitely missed. 😭😭

Luke and Jessica (Alt)

Jessica Jones’s second season wasn’t all bad.  Like I said previously, I did enjoy it.  There were a lot of cool action/fight scenes, and Jessica’s sarcastic humor always had me rollin’.  There was a scene where Pryce accuses her of murder and Jessica basically tells him that she didn’t “give a dead moose’s last shit” what he thought.  Classic.  The first few episodes had me on the edge of my seat, and the scenes that give the audience more insight into Jessica’s past were handled extremely well.  Trish and Malcolm have a story arc that’s very compelling, as does Hogarth.  I didn’t completely care for the way the season ended, but it definitely showed a pivotal change in the dynamic between Jessica, Trish, and Malcolm.  I for one can’t wait to see how this development is gonna play out next season, Lord willin’.

All in all, season two of Jessica Jones wasn’t completely explosive, but it wasn’t an absolute dud, either.  It was a lot like the less expensive fireworks we used to buy in the ’80s and early ’90s; they started off strong, but then ended with a wimpy little poof instead of a big bang.  Maybe season three will be the firework that’ll even make Katy Perry stare in wonder.

Thanksgiving Binge Watching: ‘The Punisher’ and ‘She’s Gotta Have It’

Frank and NolaWhat’s up, y’all?  Happy very belated Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!  I hope y’all had a great holiday.  Mine was wonderful, if I do say so myself. I had a glorious five day weekend away from the aggravation of my day job, and enjoyed some great food and even better company.  Other than that, I pretty much just sat on my lazy behind and did the same thing half the country did during Thanksgiving break:  binge-watched Netflix movies and shows.  The two original shows I crammed in right before and during the holiday were The Punisher and She’s Gotta Have It.  Both series have gained a very decent amount of publicity, especially The Punisher, and they each made a very serious impact on me.  With that being said, I decided to give my two cents on each show.

The PunisherThe Punisher

I wasn’t too sure if I wanted to see The Punisher at first.  When the film was originally released, it didn’t really grab me.  I heard all the hoopla for The Punisher before the series premiere, but I figured that it’d probably be an overhyped show just like The Defenders (sorry y’all, the show was good, but not great).  However, my mom wouldn’t let me forget that the show was set to premiere on Nov. 17, and when I sat down to watch it with her, I wasn’t disappointed.

The show begins with Frank Castle completing his quest for revenge against the people that murdered his family…or so he thinks.  As the show progresses, we the viewers learn that the conspiracy behind the Castle family’s massacre is much deeper than Frank initially believed, and it all revolves around Frank’s time in the Marines.  That’s all I can really say without giving away crucial plot points.

The fact of the matter is that this show had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. Truth be told, it took me from the 17th up until the start of my Thanksgiving vacation to watch all thirteen episodes, thanks to my day job, but you best believe that every day I went to work during the week leading up to the holiday, all I could think about was getting home to watch the next episode of The Punisher.  This show was well acted, action-packed, and is full of twists and turns you wouldn’t believe.  What could’ve easily been made into a strictly revenge series ends up being the Bourne trilogy on steriods.  Plus, the men in the show are pretty damn good looking (namely Frank, Billy and Curtis)!  Check it out if you haven’t already.  Also, if you haven’t seen Luke Cage, definitely give that show a shot.  That’s another Marvel show I really enjoyed.

She’s Gotta Have ItShe's Gotta Have It

The day after I finished watching all the episodes of The Punisher, She’s Gotta Have It premiered on Netflix, and I knew I had to see the pilot episode, at the very least.  I was always a fan of the original film, which I first viewed at the slightly innocent age of 12. Yes, you read that correctly.  12.  As you may have already guessed, Nola Darling’s character perplexed me.  She had three lovers that all knew about each other—which was pretty much unheard of during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s—but I never thought of Nola as a ho or a nymphomaniac.  I remember Nola stating that she wanted to have “five rusty butt boys” one day, but I couldn’t even see her settling down or being a domestic.

Fast forward 23 years since the fateful night I first watched the movie (and 31 years since the movie was released), and Ms. Nola Darling has returned with a reboot for the new millennium.  In 2017, a woman having three lovers at one time isn’t as shocking as it was circa 1986, but you have to admit, there’s still a bit of a taboo there, especially if you compare Nola having multiple men to a man having multiple women all at once.  Even when the iconic Thanksgiving scene with Nola and all her men was recreated, there’s a point in time when Greer (the narcissistic one) asks her, “Why are you acting like such a…” and Nola finishes the sentence by asking, “…a man?”

Despite Nola’s life choices being frowned upon, yet not exactly stroke inducing, the show was still very entertaining, and translates flawlessly to the 2010s (although not everyone agrees with that ).  The cinematography was gorgeous, and I loved the soundtrack.  I especially loved how Spike made sure to showcase what album the song that was played actually came from so you could possibly download the track for yourself (whether you decide to do that legally or illegally is up to you; no judgment).  On top of everything, the show was just beautiful to watch.  I love positive portrayals of my people living their lives.  Before I knew it, just checking out the pilot episode turned into me binging the entire series in a record-breaking two days.

What I really adored about She’s Gotta Have It is it delved deeper into the characters than the movie did, much like the beloved Soul Food series did over a decade earlier.  Mars was a big softie.  Jamie was flawed.  Opal was human.  Greer tried to be a loving boyfriend.  Clorinda was more than just the rejected roommate.  Nola’s parents were cool and opinionated (of course).  The only character that didn’t really change was Nola herself, which isn’t a bad thing at all.  Aside from her sexuality changing from strictly dickly to bisexual (and the fact that she kept all her lovers secret until the last episode of the season), she’s the same Nola Darling that loves life and loves people, and won’t tolerate disrespect.  Once again, this was a show that was well acted, and full of enough drama to keep you glued to the screen.  All the pretty people (Greer!) and hot sex scenes provide eye candy, and the soundtrack is hittin’.  Give this series a try.

Have y’all seen The Punisher and/or She’s Gotta Have It?  If so, what did y’all think of the series?  Was The Punisher great, or was it too violent?  Was She’s Gotta Have It insightful, or did it contain way too much sexual imagery?  Are you a fan of Stan Lee or Spike Lee or both?  Who would you rather be friends with:  Frank Castle or Nola Darling?

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ – The Good, the Bad, and the Things That Made Me Go “Hmmm…”

Thor Ragnarok Pic (Alt)

Hey, y’all!  Long time, no post!  I know, I’ve been away for a loooong time.  I’m not making any excuses; it was a combination of things that kept me away.  Work, other writing assignments, family, losing a loved one this past September, lack of ideas, and a lot of times, just plain laziness.  Like I said, no excuses.  I’m back now, and even though I don’t want to promise you guys that there’ll be a post waiting for you guys each week, I’ll try a little harder to write more often than I have this year.

Now let’s get down to brass tax.  As I’m sure you all know at this point, Thor:  Ragnarok was released on Nov. 3, 2017, and you best believe that I was right there in the theatre the very next day.  Considering that a ton of reviews have already been posted regarding the film, I decided to do something a little different.  I’m going to list the good things about Thor:  Ragnarok, the things I didn’t really like about the movie, and the things that I didn’t like or actually dislike, but they had me scratching my head.

***By the way, this post is full of spoilers, so if you haven’t watched the film yet, you may want to wait to read this.  You’ve been warned.***

The Good:Thor - Swag (Alt)

  1. Thor was fine.  That’s always a plus.
  2. The comedy was on point, 98% of the time.  For a second, I thought the decision to make the Thor series more serious ala Guardians of the Galaxy would blow up in Marvel’s face, but they actually pulled it off.
  3. The action scenes also delivered.  Thor and Hulk’s big fight, the showdown between Hela and “The Revengers,” as Thor liked to call them, the scenes where Heimdall was kickin’ ass and takin’ names, not to mention the scenes where Hela pretty much dominated…everyone was gold.
  4. Cate Blanchett played the hell out of Hela (no alliteration intended).
  5. There was a scene where Thor was shirtless.  Well worth my $13.85.
  6. Even though Doctor Strange has been my least favorite Marvel film so far, I greatly enjoyed his scene with Thor in the film.
  7. Karl Urban and director Taika Waititi also delivered in their roles.
  8. Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba were masterful, as always.
  9. My baby Chris Hemsworth always kills as Thor.
  10. Tessa Thompson was a wonderful addition to the MCU, and as always, I love to see a person of color on the big screen.  I couldn’t help but notice that she and Thor had a fleeting connection while escaping Sakaar.
  11. Jeff Goldblum. That man is a legend.
  12. I loved the chemistry between Thor and Hulk/Bruce Banner.  Once again, I didn’t think the “buddy cop” aspect would work, but it did.
  13. Even though I always loved Erik and Darcy’s characters, I didn’t miss them in the movie.  I guess that’s just a testament to how much fun it is.
  14. Last but not least, I loved how Thor proved that he really is the god of thunder and he didn’t need Mjolnir to wield his power.

The Bad:Thor and Iron Man - GTFO (Alt)

  1. Thor and Jane broke up, apparently.  What’s even worse is that the movie handled Thor and Jane breaking up like a damn footnote.  Really?
  2. Odin dies.  Boo!  Anthony Hopkins was great, as usual, though.
  3. Thor gets all his hair cut off.  I’m sure all of y’all knew that from the trailers and TV spots, but I still didn’t like it.  My only consolation is that it didn’t take away from Thor’s character like I thought it would.
  4. Even though the comedy was on point 98% of the time, I felt like the 2% botched it when they decided to be a little too jokey, especially if the occasion was meant to be serious and they opted to tell a joke.
  5. The Warrior Three got killed off in record time, and their deaths were completely unceremonious.  They were supposed to be Thor’s best friends, and yet not a word was mentioned about them by Thor or anyone else when they were killed.
  6. Sif was MIA, and she was never even mentioned.  Where the hell is she?
  7. Thor lost his damn eye! I am SO pissed off about that!  Why did they have to ruin my beautiful baby’s face?  I swear Thor is the most disrespected one out of all the Avengers!  No one else lost limbs or eyes (not counting Bucky; he’s technically not an Avenger, and the steel arm was artificial anyway.  He can get another one)!

The Things That Made Me Go Hmmm…Thor - Confused (Alt)

  1. Okay, so in an interview, Tessa Thompson stated that Valkyrie was supposed to be bisexual in the comics and she played her that way in the movie.  I guess all those scenes must’ve been cut, because I didn’t see her flirt with any girls or guys, for that matter (she and Thor had a moment for two seconds, but that’s about as sexual as she got).  Basically, her character was badass, burnout, and an alcoholic.  Anybody can have those characteristics, regardless of sexual orientation.  Hmmm…
  2. Bruce was The Hulk for two years straight.  While he was The Hulk, he killed people in the gladiator ring.  When Hulk transformed back into Bruce Banner, he didn’t even inquire about whether or not he killed people, which was one of his many concerns in the past films.  Hmmm…
  3. Loki actually decides to be on the side of justice for a change, but near the end of the film, we notice him eyeing the Tesseract in Odin’s chamber.  Hmmm…
  4. Speaking of Odin’s chamber, Hela mentioned that the gauntlet glove in there is fake. Does that mean Thanos has the real one?  Hmmm…
  5. How exactly did Odin die? He knew his time was coming and then he just…evaporated.  Hmmm….

I’m Team Cap! And It’s Not Because I’m a Nerd!

captain-america-civil-war-key-art

Sorry I’m a little late with this post, but it’s been a crazy little week.  My mom had two medical procedures back to back that I had to take her to, and I had to go to traffic court (I was compelled to listen to a certain N.W.A song when I got that ticket)!  Today…I’m just plain tired (and the fact that my female problems began today doesn’t exactly help, either.  TMI?  Oh, well).  So, let’s hop right into it, shall we?  This past Sunday (May 8, 2016), before everything in my life went cuckoo, I watched Captain America:  Civil War at my local movie theatre.  Mark me (as crazy ass Prince Charles from “Outlander“loves to say), this flick was everything the previews hyped it up to be.  When I say that I loved every minute of this film, I mean that I LOVED every minute of this film.  This is the best Captain America movie to date.  That’s right, it even surpasses The Winter Soldier.

As I’m sure you all have heard by now, the movie is basically about the gubment (yes, I wrote that on purpose) drafting The Sovokia Accords, which are basically restrictions on superheroes.  Apparently, there have been way too many casualties in New York (The Avengers), Washington, DC (The Winter Soldier); and Sovokia (Avengers:  Age of Ultron), and unfortunately, during one of Cap’s mission within the film, even more innocent lives are lost.  The powers that be decide that folks with special abilities need to be reigned in.  My thing is this:  instead of blaming The Avengers, shouldn’t the big wigs be looking at the bad guys for causin’ all of this shit?  As Martin used to say, “Don’t start none, won’t be none.”  Anyway, my boy Tony Stark is all for the accords, especially after finding out about a young man that was killed in Sokovia.  However, Cap is against the accords, hence the beginning of the “civil war.”

This movie was great.  The actual plot is a lot more fleshed out and elaborate than what I described, but I’d hate to give away too much of the film.  You all really have to go out and see it for yourselves.  The action and the special effects don’t disappoint, either.  I only saw a few CGI moments that were clearly CGI in the first few minutes, but later on in the film, everything is pretty much flawless.  By the way, there’s a certain CGI’ed moment with Robert Downey, Jr. that’ll floor you.  What I really loved about the movie was the way the characters were handled.  Unlike Avengers:  Age of Ultron,  all the good guys weren’t fighting for screen time.  They all had their time to shine and it moved along smoothly.  We get to know Vision and Scarlet Witch a little bit more (they’re so cute together!), and Black Panther’s intro to the MCU was pretty badass.  This film was my personal introduction to Ant Man, and I love him now!  Now more than ever, I have to see the Ant Man movie whenever I have the chance.  When I first heard that Spider Man was joining the MCU,  I was totally against the idea.  I always felt that Spider Man and the X-Men should stay with Sony, and The Avengers should have the MCU all to themselves.  However, when I saw Tom Holland’s portrayal in Civil War, I’m more than happy to say I was dead wrong.  No one can beat Tobey Maguire’s rendition of Spidey in my eyes, but this new kid comes damn close.  Along the way, most of us have forgotten that Spider Man is actually a teenager, and this new rendition plays that fact up to everyone’s delight.  Once again, describing it won’t do the performance justice.  You have to see it.  Another thing that has to be seen to be believed is the big fight between Tony’s team and Cap’s team at the airport.  That showdown was hot to death.  My only gripe is that Thor was missing.  I love Thor.

As far as the actual civil war is concerned, I’m team Cap, just as the title reads.  Don’t get me wrong, I can definitely see Tony’s point of view, but Cap brings up an interesting tidbit in the film that totally has me on his side.  He mentions to Tony that the government has their own agenda from time to time, and if they’re dictating what The Avengers can and cannot do, there may come a time that they’ll send the team off on a mission or call a mission off not for the good of the people, but for the good of their own objectives.  Also, who the hell puts restrictions on superheroes?  That’s the craziest shit I’ve ever heard of in my life!  Another reason I’m not on Tony’s team is because the Sokovia Accords were basically drafted by Betty Ross’ dad, Col. Ross (at least, I think he’s a colonel), who’s always been a jackass, anyway.  And like I said earlier, why are The Avengers being blamed for all these civilian deaths?  If Loki, Ultron, and all these other so-and-so’s didn’t do their dirt in the first place, there wouldn’t be any civilian casualties!

So, if you loved The Winter Soldier and The Avengers, but were just a tad let down by Avengers:  Age of Ultron (me!), please check out this movie.  Don’t be like my mom and be turned off by Captain America and Iron Man fighting each other (seriously, she can’t stand the fact that they had to square off against each other in this film…she’s pissed about Superman and Batman going against each other, too).  When you watch the film, you’ll see why things transpired the way they did.  Trust me, it’s well worth your time and money.  Besides, Captain America gets hotter with each film!  Has anyone else noticed that?  They really have some sexy men in the MCU (especially Thor)!

Have you seen Captain America:  Civil War yet?  What did you think about it?  Was it the best Captain America film in the franchise (or in the MCU), or did you think it was overhyped crap?  Would you like to see Cap and Iron Man go against each other, or does the very thought of it make your stomach turn?  Did you miss Thor as much as I did, or was his absence a welcome relief (forget you if you feel that way…just kidding!)?  Give me your thoughts!
