After two solid months of “how in the hell did this not go direct to streaming?” releases, 2019 finally gets a few potentially huge blockbusters. No movie is a guaranteed success, of course, which is why we’re here to determine…
Previously: I was dreading Marvel’s 2014 films, especially after the lackluster 2013 entries in the series. You might be asking yourself what I was dreading, seeing as I loved the first Captain America movie so much. The answer is simple:…
Four years. Four years since that teaser at the end of the Iron Man credits, where Nick Fury teased the “Avengers Initiative”. Four years and here it was, the movie that nerds worldwide had been waiting for. Don’t get me…
Previously: The post-credits scene of Incredible Hulk implied that we were going to be seeing our first glimpse of the Avengers. Would it be similar to the origin of the team in the comic, which was centered around the hunting…
“Casting a black or Latino Spider-Man for the sake of casting a black Spider-Man may or may not be the right move.”
“Underneath the big plot twists, the show still had all the same fundamental flaws; they were just less obvious when the characters were actually, you know, doing stuff.”
Agents Of Shield Recap: This is (Sort Of) The End, Beautiful Friend
“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.”
Agents of SHIELD Recap: After The Fall

Agents Of SHIELD Recap: Now It Is Bill Paxton's Turn To Try To Jump Start This Show!
With the announcement of Michael B. Jordan playing the Human Torch in a racially diverse Fantastic Four, Sybil takes a moment to talk about how comic book fans can still be the worst.
“Agents of SHIELD is undoubtedly a weak show—staying awake through all six episodes again to write this post was a bit of a challenge—but it doesn’t appear that great, memorable TV was ever really the goal here.”
“I’m constantly getting the feeling I was supposed to study ahead of time for this movie.”
Before Samuel L. Jackson, Marvel's Avengers, and ABC's upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there was an attempt to bring a live-action Nick Fury to life, starring none other than the Hoff himself. This pilot never became a series, but we did get David Hasselhoff being David Hasselhoff for 90 minutes. What more do you need?
How adorable is Steve Rogers? Very adorable. Ursa talks Captain America, leadership, and donzerly light. Though she may have got that last part wrong.
Ah, Tony Stark. How Ursa loves you, even if you're sometimes kind of a jerk. So much so that she's going to try and explain why. (Then again, she enjoyed Iron Man 2, so what does that tell you?)
Ursa turns the squee up to eleven and watches The Avengers. Or Marvel's The Avengers. Or Avengers Assemble. Oh, who cares what it's called? It's awesome! Fanboys and fangirls, assemble!
