It’s been awhile since you were treated to the meanderings and rants of this comic fan, but fear not!! I have returned!
On this edition of “The Longbox”, I’m going to give you my thoughts and insights on the recent casting of Gal Gadot (Fast 6) as DC’s flagship female character, Wonder Woman. Was she the right choice? How will she fit into the future plans of the DC cinematic universe? Are the powers that be trying to throw too many characters in the Man of Steel sequel? All of those questions and more will be answered here (not very well, mind you).
Last week, Thor: The Dark World opened in theaters. Given that the movie is part of “Phase Two” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it only seemed fitting that the gents from the ReviewSTL Podcast sit down and run through “Phase One” of the Marvel Films. We also touch on the newest deal between Marvel, Disney, and Netflix.
We talk about Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers. We will even get into what’s coming down the pipe for the rest of Phase 2 (I get a little flustered at the thought of Captain America: The Winter Solider).
What was your favorite part of Phase One? Is there a Marvel property you’d like to see make it’s way to the big screen? Leave a comment one the Facebook page or below.
With this being our first show, we just wanted to give you fine listeners an idea of how deep our love for professional wrestling goes. We talk about our favorite matches, favorite wrestlers, not so favorite wrestlers, and earliest memories of wrestling.
If you’re a wrestling fan or even if you grew up a wrestling fan and have dropped off. Take a trip down memory lane as we relieve some of our favorite moments throughout wrestling history.
New York City hosted it’s annual Comic Con this past weekend. Much like all the other major cities that host a Comic Convention, there are a plethora of news, reveals, and announcements. This show was no different. Every publisher made some big announcements, but yet again, Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios stole the show.
I’ll break all the news down by publisher so it should be a little easier to navigate.
Before you go further in this review, I want make sure that you (as a reader) understand that I love the “Grindhouse” style of movies and all of the other styles of film that derived from it. Machete Kills fits seamlessly into that genre.
As a lover of film and most aspects of filmmaking, I think critics tend to lost sight of why we wanted to get into reviewing movies in the first place. First and foremost, I want to be entertained. Whether it’s Captain America punching The Red Skull in the face or it’s Marty McFly trying not to sleep with his mother. I came to a movie to have a good time. Now that you understand where I’m coming from, you can understand why I’ve nothing but positive things to say about Machete Kills.
Machete Kills refuses to play by any of the rules. From the start of the movie, Robert Rodriguez brings us right back into the world he created. We are treated to another fake trailer (one of my favorite things from the original Grindhouse). This time, we see Machete in Space. Yes you read that right. For the this fake trailer fans are treated to special appearances from Leo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber. Given that there are two Machete movies already, a third doesn’t seem that far fetched.
