Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 10 years and 18 movies’ worth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and stars… far too many people to list. Almost every important character from the MCU pops up in this film to face…
After seeing Civil War, Joey looks at a TV episode similar to the film that doesn't get nearly enough attention.
“Tony Stark is the most recurrent character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this point, and nobody has seemingly put the Earth in as much danger as he has without actively trying to.”
“It’s a bit depressing to look at this film and all previous entries and realize that our heroes have spent just as much time fighting each other as they have saving the world, often from threats that somehow connected back to them anyway.”
More like United They're Bland, am I right?
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”
Riddle me this, Marvel fans: what do Captain America movies tell you about being a man? It's a friendship and teamwork extravaganza, don't you know.
“It feels distinctly like the beginning; that one day, the name Ales Kot will be associated with something huge and fantastic, and we’ll look back at early issues of Secret Avengers and recall how we knew he was destined for greatness all along.”
“We’re in an age where fans are demanding diversity, and it’s a lot more effective to simply modify existing superheroes than to make new ones and hope they become popular. So just for the sake of argument, here are the top four reasons why Marvel should make Captain America a gay man.”
Happy belated April Fools'! Sybil thinks she's found an early, never before screened cut of The Avengers, but it's actually the infamous Avengers porn parody released in 2012. Yes, we realize the Porn Critic reviewed this one back in the day, but can you really have enough Avengers porn?
“It’s funny that in a world inhabited by iron-clad, god-like, and star-spangled superheroes, we end up with such bland and boring villains. ”
“So there’s the real lesson of the movie: it’s what’s on the inside that counts, as long as the outside looks like Chris Evans on a five-hour-a-day workout regimen.”
“If Shakespeare had had the wherewithal to include giant robots and inter-dimensional portals and storm-generating mystical hammers in his plays, it just might have looked something like this movie.”
Sofie reaaaaally enjoyed her latest trip to the theaters.
“I’m constantly getting the feeling I was supposed to study ahead of time for this movie.”
Joey follows up his review of Ang Lee's Hulk with this review of the sequel with Edward Norton as Bruce Banner. The movie got much more favorable reviews from critics and fans alike, but does that really mean this is the "good" Hulk movie?
Sofie got lucky, because a certain big blockbuster was released a little bit earlier in Denmark: Namely, the long anticipated Marvel film Iron Man 3, which marks the end of a trilogy... for now.
For the final installment of Analyzing the Avengers, Ursa takes a look at all the secondary and tertiary female characters that populate the Marvel Movie-verse. Why does Pepper wear those shoes? Who is Darcy written for? How does the narrative reward Dr. Foster for her career? And is Thor's wardrobe department awesome, or what?
He is Loki of Asgard, and he is burdened with a purpose so glorious that it supersedes showering. Ursa takes a look at the Internet's favorite demigod bad boy.
