  • Review: Doctor Strange

    Review: Doctor Strange

    My reaction to Doctor Strange was mixed. It looked good in the previews, otherwise I wouldn’t have forked over enough money to pay for a whole month of Amazon Prime to go see it. I now know the origin story for Dr. Stephen Strange, which will be helpful in understanding future Marvel productions, so there’s […]

  • Review: Luke Cage

    Review: Luke Cage

    Sweet Christmas but Luke Cage is good. This Marvel comic book come to life is dramatic theater and thrilling action. It’s populated with thoughtful goodness and evil greed. It’s a love song to Harlem, black history, and black lives matter. There are some spoilers ahead, so beware.

    Trailers and News from Comic Con SDCC

    There is so much news and hype coming out of the San Diego Comic Con. I’m not interested in most of it, but I’m very interested in some of it. Here are some of the things I’m watching happen in San Diego. 

  • Review: Sassy Pants

    Review: Sassy Pants

    Sassy Pants is a coming of age story starring Ashley Rickards as the very sheltered, home-schooled Bethany.

    The Competent Female Sidekick Trope

    I want to point out some interesting work from other sites today. The first is a short video that I found on whohaha.com. (If you haven’t subscribed to WhoHaHa yet, you really must.) The video is from Saturday Night Live and a bit gross, but give it a chance.

    Watch This: Trailers for Daredevil Season 2

    I watched the first season of Marvel’s Daredevil because I heard it had some crossover with Jessica Jones. That amounted mainly to the inclusion of the nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). By the time I realized what slim pickings the crossover included, I was hooked on the series.

  • Watch This: Previews of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments

    Watch This: Previews of Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments

    Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments starts January 12 on Freeform (AKA ABC Family). It boasts a female lead character. The pilot is going to have to hook me on these very young characters, because the premise of this sci fi series doesn’t seem particularly intriguing from the previews below.

  • The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

    The Old Ain’t Dead Top 10 of 2015

    Old Ain’t Dead just me, watching whatever looks good. To me. I don’t watch everything. I don’t have a “best of 2015” list because I don’t have a clue as to what most of 2015 had to offer, much less what the best of all that would be. Yet here we are, at the end […]

    Friends and Lovers on Marvel’s Jessica Jones

    Before Jessica Jones began, there was speculation that the relationship between Jessica Jones (Kysten Ritter) and Trish “Patsy” Walker (Rachael Taylor) was a sexual one. It is not. Best Friends
