The Inhumans – Season 1 – The End

Yeah, I skipped a few of these.  I just didn’t really feel compelled to write much about the last few episodes.  I really tried to like this, and really wanted to, and I was pretty excited to know there was an Inhumans movie/show coming for the longest time.  The actual product was just so… underwhelming.  I can retread some of the problems I’ve mentioned previously.  The complete lack of super powers.  The unlikable characters almost universally across the board.  The constant retreading of the plot itself about oppression of the […]

The Gifted – S01E05 – BoXed In

An important character died in The Inhumans and I couldn’t come up with anything I felt like writing about and skipped it. Yet here I am again with another installment of The Gifted. One of the first thing that comes up is something I was left nagging at me from the last episode. Everyone returns to the base after the rescue, and Reed Strucker runs into Fade (the bartender) who immediately points out that Reed was working for Sentinel Services. This pretty much sets everyone on edge as they decide […]

Review – Movie – Monster Trucks

So, I’m kind of a stupid sucker for this sort of thing. Kind of dumb movies based on dumb concepts. Monster Trucks really feels like one of those, in a meeting, guy says “What about, trucks, possessed by MONSTERS. And we could call it…. MONSTER TRUCKS. This is a Nickelodeon film and rated PG, so it’s pretty sanitary in it’s story and presentation. You’re not going to get much more than what you might expect. There’s quite a few faces that you’ll recognize in here as well, though the stars […]

The Gifted – S01E04 – eXit Strategy

Plot wise, this was certainly a pretty important episode but I can’t help but feel like it kind of stalled a bit in the first half, or more. Blink deals with the lingering fallout of the implanted memories, Eclipse meets with an old friend and interrogates a guy, the Strucker kids find a way to work together to focus Andy’s powers better. The ultimate goal is to hijack a convoy transporting Reed Strucker and Polaris between prisons. There’s a lot of lead up to the action at the end, but […]

The Inhumans – S01E05 – Something Inhuman Comes This Way

So, I was wrong last week,  I guess the Inhuman that Blackbolt and Medusa captured wasn’t the one who controls plants but an Inhuman named Locus, who uses echolocation to find people.  They did leave the other Inhuman from the prison behind though, which wasn’t super clear, because now Mortis has him captive. A lot of this episode focuses on Karnak and the resolution of his story line.  Last episode had Karnak being intimate with the girl from the pot farm, which seemed to trigger the guy running the place […]

Review – Pokemon Magikarp Jump (Android, iOS)

The Good Charming visuals and art work Magikarp Magikarp The Bad Very repetitive game play Weird overpriced Microtransaction Model Shallow Gameplay In Depth Pokemon Go isn’t the only mobile Pokemon Experience available on mobile, Pokemon Magikarp Jump is a much more traditional mobile game with all of the usual caveats that come along with that.  At it’s core, Magikarp Jump is just your traditional old school Tomagotchi only with Pokemon.  You fish up a Magikarp, you feed it food and train it, and then take it off to compete in […]

The Gifted – S01E03 – eXodus

Man, this show is just killing it next to The Inhumans. I think a lot of it is that everyone gets to use their powers. The Inhumans have what, guy who can’t talk, bald chick with magic hair, guy who calculates with a concussion, and guy who stomps. The little opening bit of this week’s The Gifted between Polaris and Eclipse was just so great. The opening was this little flashback moment between these two, talking about when they first discovered they were mutants. Eclipse was talking about how he […]

Review – Marvel Legends – Blade (Man-Thing Wave)

The recent Man-Thing BAF wave of Marvel Legends is also known as the Netflix Wave.  Primarily because it consists of Netflix versions of several characters, namely, Daredevil, The Punisher, Elektra and Jessica Jones.  The wave also includes some comic characters though, mostly ones that make sense.  Bullseye and Blade are both sort of in the same “street level” department as out Netflix heroes.  Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but I almost wonder if this is sort of a secret preview for some possible future shows from Netflix.  Bullseye […]
