MCU Challenge #2 – The Incredible Hulk

The second instalment in the MCU also came in 2008 in the form of The Incredible Hulk. Unlike Iron Man, it was not the first live-action film for this character, Ang Lee's Hulk (2003) starring Eric Bana was not well received, so much so that it was pretty much discarded entirely prior to bringing the … Continue reading MCU Challenge #2 – The Incredible Hulk

MCU challenge #1 – Iron Man (2008)

Let's Get started! Ignoring all Marvel Films that came before it in terms of continuity (and tone) the 2008 Jon Favreau directed first instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was, from what I remember, hotly anticipated. Following their financial troubles in the 80s and 90s Marvel had sold the Movie rights to many of their … Continue reading MCU challenge #1 – Iron Man (2008)

Geekmas: Christmas Decorations

So far during Geekmas we've covered the all important areas of jumpers, gifts and dream possessions, but as of yet we haven't mentioned the equally vital realm of decorations. I've rounded up some of the geeky Christmas decorations I've found. Harry Potter Platform 9&3/4 bauble - £5 Everyone knows my love for Harry Potter, and … Continue reading Geekmas: Christmas Decorations

Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Eight

Here we are then, the final episode. Overall I've enjoyed this series and am really glad I did decide to give it a go, so now I'm hoping the ending doesn't ruin that! I'm not sure I entirely understand the objections to blowing up the building, it doesn't appear that they will kill anyone other … Continue reading Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Eight

Thought on The Defenders Episode Seven

Second to last episode- I honestly didn't think I'd make it this far into the series. Given how abruptly the last episode finished, I'm looking forward to see where this story is going now! 'Some time ago'.... that's specific. People really like putting their faces on Elektra's. Neither Elektra or Stick did too well at … Continue reading Thought on The Defenders Episode Seven

Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Six

Episode six, here we go. I'm interested to see if Elektra is fully out of The Hand, or whether she is going to return to Alexandra, so we get them versus the other fingers. Bloody opera music again. Nice metaphor, something old being damaged and not functioning. It does seem a bit like you guys … Continue reading Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Six

Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Five

Over halfway through the series, I'm starting to feel more confident about making it to the end. I also feel far more confident in the series as a whole, now the story has tied together I'm hopeful of a decent second half. Opera music. Must be something evil again. Oh look, evil leaders and their … Continue reading Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Five

Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Four

Episode Four, here we go. I am so hoping this continues with the momentum of the end of the last one - that fight scene was brilliant, and I'm really looking forward to off-the-scale levels of sass and witty exchange between the four leads now they have finally been brought together. Any reason they chose … Continue reading Thoughts on The Defenders Episode Four
