    Hollywood keeps making these because they put people in the seats. Though I personally don’t care about these kinds of movies (last one I saw in theaters was 2012, because I love John Cusack… alright), the tradition of making big, epic movies and peddle them to the masses goes all the way back to the 1950s. Back then epic projects got big budgets and big releases and it has been the same ever since. Okay, let’s not forget the brief moment films like The Graduate and Bonnie and Clyde were made in the sixties.

    The success of movies like Jaws and Star Wars, however, proved that epic movies, even if they have to fake it by using a natural disaster, are what gets people to theaters. Not films like The Graduate.

      I totally like John Cusack as well so no judgement from me. The last disaster movie I saw was 2012, but that was due to a boyfriend that wanted to see things blow up and nothing else in theaters at that time. I do understand big epic movies get butts into seats, and I like many big epic movies (look at what I have been posting about =D). I’m just so tired and bored of disaster movies. I love The Rock but he isn’t going to get me into a theater for this one (unfortunately that will be the driving point for others to go and see this horrible looking movie).

    This is the right website for everyone who would like to find out about this topic.

    You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject which has been written about for
    many years. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

    I absolutely agree with you that this film was totally refreshing after the oversized destruction and world-ending threats of the most recent MCU films. I enjoyed the more relaxed feeling of this one. I didn’t even realize I needed the break from the over-the-top stuff until I watched this movie and was grateful at the end for the change of pace. I also liked the heist element of it. I thought that was a lot of fun. Great article!

  8. T. Mack says:

    I have so much emotion about this movie. I was one of those who was excited about the casting of Reynolds as Deadpool in the Wolverine movie, then enraged by the film’s treatment of the character, then hopeful of a stand-alone movie to fix the damage, then saddened by the shelving of that film, then flabbergasted by the awesomeness of the leaked footage last year, then ecstatic over the green light for this movie. See? All the emotions! I cannot wait to see this!!!

      Nerdling says:

      I am right there with you on all of those feels. I have my fingers crossed that Fox will not screw this one up. Right now they are marginally better about not killing their own comic book movies than Sony. Of course I say this before I go to see Fantastic Four.

      1. T. Mack says:

        Hahaha! Indeed! From all indications, FOX listened to the fans and made every effort to give us what we asked for with Deadpool so I’m optimistic. But I’m with you… I’m not sure at all what we can expect from FF. Fingers crossed!

  9. hupertgreeen says:

    I am really excited ! I really want to watch this movie. Of course I am not totally confident, I did not forget “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. But the trailer was exactly as I wanted it to be, so I hope that the movie will be amazing !

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      I try very hard to forget the existence X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Fox is actively trying to erase the mistakes it made in the past X-Men movies. Days of Future Past erased X3: The Last Stand, I think Deadpool will try and erase X-Men Origins.

      1. hupertgreeen says:

        I hope that they will succeed to erase it, but they succeeded really well with Days of future Past so I am not worried.

        Definitely. We can at least be glad it won’t be as bad as I Frankenstein haha

  14. filmfunkel says:

    Looks like a melding of Jurassic World & recent Planet of the Apes as a substrate for a monster thriller-adventure (i.e. Underworld, Resident Evil) rather than outright Horror.

    Past that, I concur with you – especially on the Young Frankenstein ref. 😀

      I really hope Ming-Na Wen stays as well. Despite May not being an outwardly emotional person, she manages to be a big part of the emotional center of the group. Phil is the heart, but she is like the lungs. They don’t function properly without one another.

  16. thislazypanda says:

    I’m wondering what Seth’s going to do now that he’s in the clear. Is he going to stay in town, or leave town once again and find a new under-aged girl to have relations with? I can’t imagine him staying after all the drama that went down, but then again this town is twisted.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      I think that he will leave town, but all of the kids are in their senior year. I think when season two picks up, they have all gone to college and that is when Seth and Brook will run into each other.

  17. Paloma Bennett says:

    I’m not sure if Simmons is inhuman since the blob ate a guard or two. No evidence that it just eats inhumans. Though I hope Simmons doesn’t go bad guy I can see that it’s possible. I love Skimmons so I hope Skye and her remain close. I am also pretty sure Simmons won’t come back until late in Season Three.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      I don’t remember the blob eating other guards, but I am in the process of re-watching the last few eps right now so I will probably see it then. Good catch. I love Skimmons too but that relationship took a bit of a hit after Skye’s transformation. The show runners have come out and said that we will find out what happens to Simmons pretty quickly in the beginning of the season.

    My favorite 90’s cartoons Nick cartoon were Rugrats, CatDog and Doug. I used to watch them every Saturday Morning as a kid.

    1. palomabennett says:

      And I meant favorite Nick cartoons. Sorry about the repeat words.

    I hope Rugrats and CatDog make it into the movie. I was a pretty weird kid. I’m a pretty weird adult too. Well a major TV Geek and Fangirl at least.

      I loved CatDog too! It was just too weird and funny. And Doug, but I always thought he was a little to depressed or something. Skeeter was my favorite character from that show.

      Same here. I was not a huge fan of Evans or Cap in the beginning, but the two of them have really grown on me and I would like both to stick around as long as it is feasible.

  21. wavemotionfist says:

    Definitely agree. Hollywood very rarely spend big money on what isn’t a safe bet and I guess they consider the likes of Jumanji a safe bet. They do the same with book adaptions. Creativity is in the hands of the independents and a few trusted directors like Christopher Nolan.
    What annoys me most is that Jumanji doesn’t need remaking, there’s no improving the original film. Remake stuff that could be improved. Averaged films with good ideas behind them.

  22. palomabennett says:

    I’m disappointed in Scream Queens to I don’t care about any of the characters. I love Glee and American Horror Story, but for some reasons this Horror Satire/Parody is not working for me. I neither find Scream Queens scary nor funny. I may give the series one more go when it comes to Netflix, but for right now I won’t be watching any more episodes.

  23. thislazypanda says:

    I tried so hard to like Scream Queens in the first episode, I just couldn’t. Maybe it’s my dislike of Murphy’s work, as the only show of his that I could stomach was Glee, but that was for a very short time. This show just doesn’t do it for me. I too thought it would be a better version of MTV’s Scream but this….it’s disappointing.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      It is good to know that I am not the only person disappointed by the show so far

  24. palomabennett says:

    I am looking forward to the Ant Man sequel because the first film was funny and I hope Hope Van Dyne will be Ant-Woman or whatever her super hero name is. I love when Marvel adds more Super Hero women into their film and television series. I am sad that I have to wait longer for Captain Marvel. I would of liked to see the first Marvel film centered around a super heroine a lot sooner than I will.

  25. palomabennett says:

    I hope Daisy Johnson will be a main character in the future Inhuman movies, but I will understand if there some good reasons for her not being in the films. Like for example if as I hope Marvel Agents of Shield is still going on strong so Chloe Bennet doesn’t have time to film Inhuman.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      I don’t think Daisy will be one of the stars of Inhumans because the contracts for the TV and Movie divisions are way different. Also the whole shake up with Kevin Feige has most likely put a big axe in any crossover stuff planned between the movies and TV shows.

  26. Bigweirdguy says:

    I like the show. More so in the first few episodes because it was going for what they wanted, the 80s slasher flick vibe. As time progresses the show is still ok, but only because I do wanna find out who the third ( actually second devil since Gigi is the behind the scenes person/Antonin Scalia) devil is. I’ve never seen any of Murphy’s other work, so I can’t say I shitty his style is, but I do know I don’t like the “make up everything as I go” style he has been using. It creates, for me, a slightly incoherent story telling method.

    No, don’t do this. Just pretend like Episode 7 is just some movie you have never heard of. I learned the hard way about getting all excited when I went to se the midnight showing of Episode 1, and I was completely disappointed. If I just assumed it was just another crappy movie and caught a matinee showing after the crowd died down, I might not hate Jar-Jar Binks quite as much as I do now.

      Nerdling says:

      You are probably right. I am trying to keep my calm and keep my expectations low, but it is hard. A part of me just wants to be a little kid and get excited about a Star Wars movie.

  29. Jen P says:

    I loved everything about it! Though someone spoiled me for Han’s death and I literally unfriended them. I daid I would and I did. Anyway, I agree- Rey’s parentage was a source for major speculation and will play a huge part in future films. What did you think about that end scene though. 5 minutes of Rey and Luke just staring at each other? Come on. Otherwise, fantastic film!

    1. Jen P says:

      I should really have proof read before I posted! Lol. I was just so excited. I love Star Wars!

    2. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      The last few minutes of them staring at was a bit anticlimactic, plus I really wanted Luke to say SOMETHING to Rey even if was just a “how did you find me” kinda thing. Other wise I loved the movie.

      A couple of my friends had Han’s death spoiled for them too when they were on Reddit reading a news article on Ethan Couch. As if we didn’t need enough reasons to dislike that kid.

      1. Jen P says:

        Lol. I totally agree about the Luke scene. T Mack had a great point. She said they should have used it as a post or mid credits scene. Like, she’s flying off to who knows where and roll credits. Then… Bam! Luke freakin’ Skywalker.

        1. Profile photo of Nerdling
          Nerdling says:

          Now that would have been a good way to tease the ending out!

      2. The.Richard.Braxton says:

        I found the whole we have to find Luke part a little pointless. The Star Wars mythology has always shown that the universe is just too big for just one hero. Even in the original trilogy, when discussing how much they needed Luke to do the right thing, Yoda said, “There is another.”

        1. Profile photo of Nerdling
          Nerdling says:

          I agree, the who Finding Luke plot was super thin. Here is hoping the story becomes more about finding and training the new Jedi and redemption for both Kylo Ren and Luke.

  30. The.Richard.Braxton says:

    I started to post a comment here but it got so huge and out of hand that I had to post it as a blog on my site. But I loved the movie and Finn is probably my favorite character, and Rey is a close second.

    I was already committed to not seeing this film due to the bold-faced whitewashing. It’s good to know I didn’t miss anything. And hopefully, this failure will help make Hollywood at least a little less inclined to continue the whitewashing trend moving forward.

    I’m super excited for you! I also came to Supernatural late, starting around season 4 or 5, I don’t remember now. Then I fell away for a while while moving and doing other things only to binge through the back half the series in a blur to watch season 10 live and then…get caught up in other things and miss all but a few episodes of season 11. I’m watching all together too much right now to do a full SPN rewatch, but I’m eager to see what you think of it while I wait for season 11 to hit Netflix or cycle back around on Hulu.

    You’ve probably realized it already, but if I can make one tiny correction: Sam is the younger brother and Dean the older. It totally doesn’t feel that way, with Sam clearly being a little more put together in the life department, though.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      It is funny that you just commented on Sam and Dean’s ages. I was just saying in “Dead in the Water” that I now realized Dean was the older brother…lol

      I’m working on watching all the episodes in time for the season 12 finale. Fingers crossed I can make it in time.

  34. tigercrh says:

    Oh, Wendigo. ‘Twas a time I won Nanowrimo with an SPN/Stargate SG-1 crossover fic in which the boys (Cam Mitchell cousins) show up to stop a Wendigo at Cheyenne Mountain. But this is definitely a formulaic episode. In fact, the only thing that really stands out as memorable are Dean’s M&Ms and the ranger who was super snarky about the “magic circle.”

  35. tigercrh says:

    Creepy lakes, creepy kids, creepy episodes. One of a few I’m also glad I didn’t watch late at night.

  36. tigercrh says:

      It is worth going back and watching, if only for the nostalgia of it.

  37. tigercrh says:

    Eesh. Mary crawling out of her mirror is just about the creepiest thing I’ve seen on this show. I don’t blame you for watching this one in broad daylight with multi-task things.

  38. tigercrh says:

    Yeah, the shapeshifting is pretty gross, but I love this episode. I don’t really think the shifter was miinterpreting Dean’s emotions about Sam’s leaving but misjudging the degree to which it bothers him. Like, I have no trouble believing Dean’s jealous and a hurt by it, but I also think those are things he would never say, because there’s a part of him that wants the best for Sam — even if that’s a normal life, however impossible such a thing may seem.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      I think you are right because the Shapeshifter saw John Winchester leaving as another person abandoning Dean. The shifter was interpreting Dean’s worry about their father as fear that another person has left him

  39. tigercrh says:

    I do love all the family stuff in Bugs, and if I remember right, some of the early casework is fun, but the last few minutes of this show will live in infamy as one of the most ridiculous things it’s ever done.

  40. tigercrh says:

    I remember being really surprised to see John and really liking this episode. But mostly I was just happy to see Lawrence, Kansas. It looks absolutely nothing like the town I spent six years in for college, but I just really love when shows mention places I’ve been (even when it’s just in one episode and they mispronounce it *cough*Angel*cough*).

  41. tigercrh says:

    “The next morning Emily burns the tree and Meg cuts a man’s throat to talk to her father.”

    The matter-of-factness of this is wonderfully hilarious.

  42. tigercrh says:

    I was just reading an article about the lack of films focusing on the American Revolution, and the most hilarious part was a quote about The Patriot being “to history as Godzilla was to biology.” But I still like it.

    1. Profile photo of Nerdling
      Nerdling says:

      I enjoyed The Patriot too, but it certainly treats historical fact like a suggestion. I have noticed there are no films in recent times about the American Revolution.

  43. tigercrh says:

    Ah, the notorious racist ghost truck episode. This episode gets a lot of crap, and rightly so, but ever since my last rewatch I haven’t been able to shake the idea that, really, “Racist Ghost Truck” isn’t any different from “Morality Police Scarecrow”. Someone died and a bit of them was leftover to haunt people. But I can’t decide if that similarity makes it better, worse, or just the same.

    But I honestly didn’t remember Cassie at all.

  44. tigercrh says:

    I like this episode, but it does feel very out of place.

  45. tigercrh says:

    I think we’re to a point where I need to rewatch these episodes to talk more about them. This weekend….

  46. tigercrh says:

    Okay, so the thing I like most about this episode isn’t the re-introduction of Meg and whatever her dastardly plan is, or the shadow monster that’s killing people. It’s the dynamic between Sam, Dean and their dad that it gives us. It’s one thing to hear the boys talk to each other about their relationship with their dad, but it’s something else entirely to see it. I was really struck by how clearly Dean looks at John with love and downright adoration in the hotel room — later making the hard choices that he doesn’t want to make, just because he knows it’s what’ll keep his dad safer. Likewise, I feel like Sam loves his dad, sure, but the beginning of that scene was just rife with this feeling of always having something to prove – whether it was that he could do fine on his own, away from hunting or whether Sam and Dean could manage on their own as hunters without him.Even at the end, when he doesn’t want to leave, it feels less about not wanting to be separated and more about finding the demon that killed Mary and Jess. “I can help!” he says. And sure, part of that’s revenge, clearly, but to me a big part of it is Sam still trying to prove that Sam can do whatever he wants to.

    I think it’s a great example of how Sam and Dean can have such similar backgrounds and skills but be such different people.

      I highly agree with all of this. I need to do a better job articulating these things because it is like you are stealing the thoughts right out of my head.

    This episode is so much fun. Not only is it a refreshing side of the brothers in general, you’re right in that it was definitely needed after dramatic angst-fest that was Shadows. Plus, I just love that you came to it — featuring Spangler and Zeddmore — so close to the premiere of the new Ghostbusters.

      The timing was pretty good considering I never knew about those two in the show before. A friend of mine told me Spangler and Zeddmore comeback a couple more times so I’m looking forward to that.

        Ah, I wanted to mention that they’d be back, but I didn’t want to spoil it.

    This is one of my favorite episodes, and while it’s certainly not a shining moment for John, it doesn’t make me dislike him as a whole. I look at John in that time as a guy who does the best he can with what he has. Unfortunately, what he has is a vendetta, paranoia and young sons. He’s a single father who knows there’s evil in the world that he wants to protect them from and prepare them for (and avenge their mother). So I get why he raised them that way, even though I fully recognize that it’s not an ideal way to raise kids.

    The only thing I really didn’t like was John sending them to that town blind, having to deduce why they were there. I mean, if you want Dean to finish that hunt, tell him that’s what’s going on. And the stuff in the flashback…yeah expecting Dean to stay cooped up wasn’t a great choice, but it’s easy to monday-morning-quarterback when you’re not the one hunting monsters, I guess. And I see that response after the Shtriga attack as one born from fear for Sam. He is, after all, only human.

    (I hope this doesn’t sound confrontational or anything, I’m just an ardent John Winchester fan in a fandom that largely haaaates him.)

      I honestly didn’t know fans hated him, but what little I have seen from John so far (just finished “Dead Man’s Blood” and he gets a little bit of redemption) he does get under the skin with his militant ways.

      Yes, what he said to Dean was out of fear for Sam, but he never apologized to his son knowing it was eating Dean up.

      As long as it doesn’t result in name calling, I’m all about other opinions being expressed here, so feel free to love on John Winchester all you please 🙂

      1. tigercrh says:

        Oh, I totally think an actual, verbal apology would have been fantastic. But I do kind of feel like “he never mentioned it again,” was John’s way of trying to let it be water under the bridge. Again, not the best choice, but maybe the best he could do (I do really salute Supernatural for making such a flawed but — for me, anyway — still likable character out of John).

  49. tigercrh says:

    I’ve seen this episode twice, I think (soon to be at least a partial third, because I never noticed the name slip before), and to me it fits a pattern of having good brother moments and showcasing some decent effects but otherwise being kind of unremarkable, which is how Supernatural goes for me a lot of the time: It either swings for the fences or meanders around, rarely being bad, usually being good but sometimes just being *there.*

      Nerdling says:

      I agree. This is an episode that has some good brother moments, but is just there. I mostly just wanted to use a minor conversation between Sam and Sarah to talk about the idea of Sam being cursed. I wish I could go more into my ideas of what is going on with Sam, but knowing the entire story line has been resolved gives me pause. Partially because I don’t want to sound like an idiot for guessing wrong, but also because I don’t want those who have seen the series a reason to start commenting on episodes I haven’t gotten to yet.

      Also, I only knew about the name slip is because it was pointed out to me by a friend who is a fan of the series before I watched the episode. I was waiting for it.

    Man, that fight between Sam and John may not be violent, but it sure was brutal. And my heart breaks for Dean, who just wants everybody to get along. For a while I followed someone else who was doing an episode-by-episode SPN watch, they kept insisting that Dean is this bro-iest macho man to ever macho little more, and I’m just like “What show are you watching?” Clearly, Dean has a lot of feels (that he tries really hard to bury).

    But I think the San and John make-up conversation here is what keeps me on the John train. Because I do think intent matters, and what John intended was to do what he thought was best. Now, some of his decisions and attitudes end up not actually being the best, but that’s part of being human.

      Nerdling says:

      That was a brutal fight between John and Sam, but like I said, it was a fight that needed to happen in order for them to move on and rebuild. I am glad the two men acknowledged how a like they are.

      It is funny to me how much my opinions of the brothers have changed since starting the show, but I’m going to talk about that more when I get to the last two episodes. Dean is brave and tough, but not at all macho like. He does cover his feelings with a joke, but he lets them out when it counts. Hence the “stronger as a family” speech.

  51. tigercrh says:

    Mostly, I’m just glad you’re watching versions that have Carry On, Wayward Son” and “Bad Moon Rising” in the soundtracks. Netflix replaces them with inferior (but still OK I guess), songs.

    “I want you to go school! I want Dean to have a home! I want Mary to be alive.”

    I love that line and how indicative it is of how well John knows his boys (especially Dean who I doubt has ever expressed that) and how futile he knows it all is. Mary can’t be alive, and it doesn’t look like normal lives are in the Winchester cards.

      Nerdling says:

      I thought the same thing when John was talking about his wants. And the look on Dean’s face when he said it, it was like he was surprised and happy his father knew him which is why I think the things possessed John said didn’t get to him as much. His father already showed he knew and cared about Dean.

      I had been watching the Netflix versions until I realized they were replacing some of the music choices and so I’m borrowing the DVDs from someone. lol

    For a second, it occurred to me: we don’t even know for sure that Naz is innocent.
    That would make quite a plot twist… but that would be so unsatisfying, from an artistic standpoint.
    Clearly, Naz is innocent. He’s patently a good guy. A sheltered young guy, who had one night of partying, practically the first in his whole life. (The show starts with him in class learning, “Stokes’ Theorem,” — advanced math. Not that villains can’t know integral calculus — Ted Kaczynski was a mathematician. But Naz is no villain.)
    Okay, so we know he’s innocent. And he stands up for himself, by not pleading. It makes for great drama. Chandra shows spirit, in bucking Alison and the standard legal thinking (even John Stone tells Naz to take the deal).
    Chandra reveals something profound about herself in that scene. Unlike the more experienced lawyers, she still cares about that quaint little notion; the truth.
    I also wondered why “The Other Side of Midnight” was supposed to be one of the two most popular books in the prison library. The wikipedia entry made it sound like such a melodrama — I didn’t even get to the end of the entry. Thanks for revealing the reason: because the main characters in the story make a mistake in accepting a plea deal.
    A few final thoughts. First, I’m really enjoying seeing Michael K. Williams (Freddie), the actor who played “Omar” in “The Wire.” Second, Naz is an excellent actor. Third, everyone else is great in this miniseries. And last, and probably least, I can’t help thinking of my favorite rapper, “Nas,” for no particular reason, other than the name.
    Thanks again for a great post.

  53. zac lev says:

    This was a brilliant episode. So funny! But also so epic.
    This show is not a farce, because it’s too emotionally engaging — we actually care about the characters. But there is farce in there. It’s *funny*. The two mascots; Quinncannon; the fake “God,” and the men in white coats who grab him — it doesn’t get funnier than that.
    The three main characters, Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joe Gilgun — can you imagine better casting? Heck, no. (The church secretary, the two angels, Quinncannon, even the redneck and the sheriff; also, so good!)
    I’m glad I never read the comic, because I truly have no idea exactly what is going to happen.
    Yes there are other ways to enjoy a tv show, even if you’ve “read the book.” But at least this time, it’s fun to be in the dark.

  54. tigercrh says:

    I rewatched it in anticipation of this post. I don’t remember crying at it before, but this time John’s goodbyes just had me in tears pretty much the whole rest of the way through.

    And, cheater. It feels like fandom went a long time calling him Yellow Eyes or YED before learning Azazel’s name. 🙂 And the Mystical Talking Board! It’s absolutely ridiculous. And funny, too, because just a couple months ago I saw a Supernatural-themed Ouija board at a store. So they won’t give Hasbro money, but they sure will take it! 😀 But anyway, I thought this was a really compelling episode that sets the tone for the season nicely.

      I actually felt bad for harping on John the way I did after this episode… lol. I like the name YED, that is so much easier to type than Azazel.

    I´m sorry, but to make any sense in the history, DeBlanc must be dead. Perhaps he may be stuck in hell, helping Eugene to leave. Perhaps Fiore may seek dead to be with his boyfriend. But the bullets of the Saint of Assassins are deadly to all . INCLUDING Angels, Demons, Satan, Genesis and God himself. That is what makes the character so interesting. And looks like it was what appealed the producers in the first place. I´m curious to see how they can adapt the legend of the Saint to TV. I´m sure the comic hell is not appropriate, and deserve many changes. Why the cowboy replaces the angel of death, turning his sword into guns? Or the details may be different on TV?

  56. tigercrh says:

    Here’s what I both love and hate about Supernatural: There aren’t always a super ton of true stand-alone episodes, and I always forge that! So while I’m sitting here thinking “Oh, it’s the one with the clown at the circus and Sam’s humorously scared of them!” I have a laugh but don’t really feel like I need to rewatch it. But then it’s also the first episode with Ellen, Jo and Ash, and I FORGOT. I love them so much, and I think that expansion of the hunter’s universe is definitely something this show needs. It makes the scope so much bigger and gives more people for Sam and Dean to interact and relate to.

  57. tigercrh says:

    Lenore’s band of peaceful vampires didn’t really bother me, mainly because it seemed like they were the exception to the rule. But I’m mostly into this episode for the John grief and Gordon, who…I don’t really like him, but he’s an interesting contrast.

      Happy to help. You should check out the original movie. Seriously dated, but still good.

    I freakin’ LOVED the Luke Cage Easter egg where he looked like old school Luke Cage. I thought that was AWESOME! Thanks so much for this recap. It’s been a couple weeks since I last watched episode 4, and I couldn’t remember what it was about. So thanks. I thought I remembered they {kind of} referenced how he got to be in prison. They didn’t give a full answer, but gave something away, didn’t they? Maybe I’m remembering wrong. So far, I’m loving Luke Cage!

    I’m sooo excited for this one.. It’s freakin’ Iron Fist!!!

    The Arrival is based on a short story by Ted Chiang called “Story of Your Life” – his stuff is awesome. He’s a technical writer with a computer science degree, so his writing is pretty science-heavy, but his characters are so well developed, and he combines philosophy with scientific theory in a really smart, really well written way; it makes his stories thought provoking but still very readable. Really looking forward to the movie, hope it captures some of the depth of the story.

    And Rogue One can’t come out soon enough…

      Nerdling says:

      I obviously didn’t know that. From what people were saying about Arrival makes it sound like an original story. Thanks for the info, I’ll have to check his work out.

      And I agree about Rogue One.

  62. Rob says:

    Totally bummed about the Tim Miller thing. Reynolds better still keep it real with Deadpool 2 though. Why was anyone unhappy with Benedict Cumberbatch hosting SNL? I think that’s cool. I don’t care about Star Wars. I’m a super hero only nerd. Aquaman sounds cool. Gotta wait and see if it actually is though. Considering all the other DC movies have been a total borefest. And finally.. Can’t wait for Doctor Strange! I hope it’s awesome. And I really, REALLY can’t wait for Black Panther. Been a BP fan since I was a little kid. LOOOVE that character. I seriously can not wait another second for that movie to come out..

      I’m very bummed about Miller leaving as well since he had a large part in keeping Deadpool true to the comic. Sorry if that tweet was misleading, it was supposed to show several of the comments made. Fans of Cumberbatch are overly excited about his hosting, to the point of hysteria. I was pretty funny to watch twitter after the announcement. I’m just so excited about everything MCU has on its schedule and since Geoff Johns has fully taken over the DCEU, I’m hopeful of the upcoming films.
