So has anyone else watched WandaVision? Did anyone else absolutely love the premise? I did, holy crap. I thought it was such a unique, unusual plot and so very different from everything else Marvel has done.
Well, except for the end. I think I would have preferred it if it didn’t go back to “oh yeah, there’s the Marvel fight scenes” in the last episode and would have stayed “different” instead, but I guess they had to tie Wanda back into the rest of the MCU somehow, and that was probably the best way to do it.
Anyway, if you have Disney+ and you haven’t watched WandaVision yet, I highly recommend it. Super cool and weird and the homages to the sitcoms of different decades was really well done. Don’t forget to watch the “making of” episode, either. There are so many cool little details that the implemented to make each episode feel authentic to the sitcom/era they were trying to replicate.
Go see Endgame, it’s good.
You probably won’t have to walk 16 miles through the snow to go see it like Nate and I did (‘cause, you know, it’s freaking May, why shouldn’t it be snowing?), but go see it anyway.
Holy crapples, I love the intro to The Defenders. Both the music and the animation. Check it:
The best one yet. Rankings:
1. The Defenders (music and animation)
(Edited to add): Punisher (music and animation) (Punisher and The Defenders are tied for first)
2. Daredevil (music and animation)
3. Iron Fist (music)
4. Jessica Jones
5. Luke Cage
Y’all know I like to rank things.
HOLY CRAPPLES, Y’ALL.
Go see Thor: Ragnarok. Do it. It’s so good. It’s probably my second favorite Marvel movie after The Avengers.
(Edit: OKAY I LIED IT’S MY FAVORITE)
I knew I was going to love it after that first fight scene. Go watch it and tell me that scene doesn’t get you PUMPED.
UGH, marathon grading of STAT 217 midterms gives me a headache.
So awhile ago (like back in March or something) I said that of all the Marvel movies, Thor: The Dark World had the best music.
But now I take that back. BOTH Thor movies had the best music, in my opinion. The current song I can’t get out of my head is from Thor and is called Sons of Odin.
Y’all need to watch Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, okay? It’s super dark and violent, but it’s really, really good. I was expecting to enjoy it when Nate and I started watching it, but I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. Watch it, yo.
Also, the opening sequence is quite cool:
Nate and I saw Age of Ultron today!
It was pretty damn good overall. It seemed really rushed at times, especially in the beginning, but considering Whedon’s original version was supposedly quite a bit longer, that might explain things. We’re hoping that when the DVD comes out it’ll have a director’s cut.
I’d definitely watch it again; I always seem to get waaay more out of any given movie if I watch it a second time.
Also, this was the first movie I’ve seen in theatres since Watchmen way back in 2009.
Nate’s been catching me up on my Marvel movies (and by “catching me up” I mean “showing me all the Marvel movies ‘cause I’ve seen zero of them on my own”), which has gotten me thinking about that idea I had awhile back: a group of superheroes based on the seven base SI units: meter, kilogram, second, ampere, Kelvin, candela, and mole. The villains, of course, would have to be a group of people based on the Imperial units, like the foot, the pound, the gallon, etc. I think I’ve blogged about this before, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot recently. I think it would be pretty entertaining.
Also: spring break is next week! That means the semester is almost half over. That’s scary.
1. We watched Iron Man! It was very enjoyable. I even liked quite a bit of the soundtrack.
2. This is full of some wonderful statistical snark. FlowingData has some great and insightful posts, but this one has to be my new favorite. 4, 5, 7, and “9 through 18” made me seriously laugh.
