Black Widow (2021) – The worst MCU film ever made

For years fans of the character have been begging Marvel Studios to give us a solo Black Widow movie. Then they went and killed her off in Avengers: Endgame. So what else is there to tell about her? Not much really. At least according to the new Black Widow film that finally made its way…

Community – the greatest Show ever made #sixseasonsandamovie

A magical coincidence For years I declared to anyone who would listen that Firefly is and always will be the greatest show ever made. It’s diversity and rich human storytelling in only 14 short episodes (and one movie) was breathtaking. However, secretly, I always knew that Firefly would not be able to stand the test…

Arrow(verse) – an end and a new beginning

In 2005 Christopher Nolan shocked the world with his surprisingly well-made gritty Batman Begins. In 2012 the trilogy came to a close with The Dark Knight Rises. The Dark Knight trilogy was a resounding success and is one of the reasons why superhero films became mainstream blockbuster films. Of course, we already had the Sam…

The Mandalorian – A New Hope

Disney+ has only launched in a few countries thus far, but those that still have to wait for it have something to look forward to.

Guardians (2017) – The Russian Avengers Spoof

(At least I hope it is meant as a spoof…) Guardians is one of those really weird high-budget films that doesn’t act like it deserves its high budget. Let’s get right down to it. The film has the feel of a major blockbuster film, but at the same time the writing is so bad, you…

IO (2019) – The MacGuffin

Thus far, Netflix only counts 13 original Sci-Fi films their own. It is all the more disappointing that one of their newest entries, IO, is a big letdown. The concept is great. We meet Sam (Margaret Qualley), a young woman (probably in her early twenties, but not quite clear) and one of the last people…

The Boys – Brilliant Anti-Superhero Superhero TV Show

Amazon Studios has delivered another winner for its streaming service Prime. The Boys at times feels like a comedy, but is as dark as it gets. The Boys is set in a fictional version of today, where superheroes are a given. However, unlike most superhero films and shows, the world of The Boys doesn’t give…
