While I was in Borden for my training, Zack Snyder's Justice League was released for streaming. Being in Borden and not having access to a decent tv set up, I had to wait several months to view it. Four hours is a bit of a haul for a movie, but to me it didn't feel … Continue reading Feminism, Sexism, & Blurry Lines
I profess my love for Superman on a somewhat regular basis. Though I can’t fly, or lift a car over my head, I try to uphold the ideals he stands for daily: helping those in need, doing the right thing, being an inspiration to others. I think the world would be a much better place … Continue reading Overthinking It: Superman’s Fighting Skills – Appropriate or Lame?
One of the things my wife and I like to do when we’re looking for something to put on for noise is head to the Marvel section of Disney+, pick a number, scroll over that many, and hit play. Yesterday that landed us on Iron Man 3. I had forgotten the scene when Tony’s house … Continue reading Overthinking It: Rescue Armour
One of my absolute favourite super heroes is Green Lantern. For those that don’t know Green Lantern is basically a space cop. The Green Lantern Corps is an organization that patrols the 3600 sectors of space (2 GL’s per sector) and keeps the peace. The fact that there are 7200 Green Lanterns is one of … Continue reading Creation is a Force of Will.
Anticipation, by itself, it neither a good or bad thing. Anticipation for a dentist appointment isn’t likely to be enjoyed, but anticipation for something you’ve been looking forward to can be a great feeling. Like a great movie reveal, or “hero shot”. "Hero Shot": an establishing scene in a movie, often (but not always) done … Continue reading My Top 5 “Hero Shots”
My wife and I had a big Batman movie marathon recently. I didn’t think to start with the original Batman movie from 1989, I actually forgot I owned it to be honest. I don’t own any of the other Batman movies until we get to Batman Begins, which made me feel a bit old when … Continue reading Overthinking It: Robin’s Suit in BvS
I re-watched Iron Man 2 the other day, and was thinking about the scene where Tony Stark sets up the particle accelerator in his house to invent a new element; and I was thinking about the backlash about the scene. I liked it. I am a Journeyman Cabinetmaker, Red Seal Certified; which means that (theoretically) … Continue reading Overthinking it: Tony Stark in Iron Man 2
Zack Snyder (L) left directing Justice League and Joss Whedon (R) took over for him. Seems like Joss Whedon has taken a bit of a beating on social media and in the news the last few days. Most of the talk is due to hype of the Snyder Cut of Justice League being made and … Continue reading Justice League: Snyder vs Whedon
I follow a bunch of celebrities on social media. Probably not as many as a lot of people though, because I have a special rule for which celebrities I follow: Who would be cool to sit down and have a beer with? Of course this is highly subjective, not everyone would like to hang out … Continue reading Celebrities, Stalkers, and Social Media
I love Marvel movies. We own them all. In preparation for the release of Avengers: Endgame last year, my wife and I watched 11 Marvel movies, back to back. I've watched all the movies multiple times, and I tend to notice things that only hardcore fans notice; and I tend to (over) think of things … Continue reading Overthinking it: Everett Ross in Black Panther
