‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Is A Triumphant and Devastating Exploration of Grief and Legacy.
The appeal of a comic-book movie is or used to be the fact that it presented these very grounded, human stories with the use of fantastical elements and epic science-fiction to explore those emotions on a much larger scale. Somewhere along the way, it seems that Hollywood has forgotten how to reinject humanity into these … Continue reading ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Is A Triumphant and Devastating Exploration of Grief and Legacy.
‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Is Top Tier MCU Content, DEAL WITH IT!

‘Werewolf By Night’… A Very Short and Disappointing Rant.
I always say there should be more spooky episodes and specials and it's insane that the MCU has done it before some of our favourite shows have.

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’: A Colossal Waste Of Time.
At this moment in time, the MCU is in shambles, the fatigue is quite real and when the output of content surpasses the output of quality is which is severely lacking, the fans get rightfully fed up.

Sam Raimi’s Dark and Mystical Multiversal Horror Flick and The New ‘Doctor Strange’ Movie.
In almost all aspects related to the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse, 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' fails to serve the episodic nature we've grown so accustomed to. Fan-favourites Doctor Strange, Wong and Wanda Maximoff return to either repeat character arcs or go through little to no development in a movie that doesn't really care … Continue reading Sam Raimi’s Dark and Mystical Multiversal Horror Flick and The New ‘Doctor Strange’ Movie.

‘Hawkeye’ Hits The Bullseye On The MCU’s Rapidly Growing Problem.
Just as the cinematic entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have formed their own formula, it seems that the small-scale Disney+ entries have also found theirs. With a highly divisive 2021, Marvel released a set of nine projects, four of them winning mountains of praise and the other five being dismissed with annoyance and disappointment. … Continue reading ‘Hawkeye’ Hits The Bullseye On The MCU’s Rapidly Growing Problem.
