  • Jeremy Renner filmed Tag with Two Broken Arms I really enjoyed viewing Tag last night, a movie about a group of grownup men who spend every year in May reliving their childhood game of tag. Even while living cross-county from each other, these guys keep it up and plan the rest of the year for new ways to ...
  • Incredibles 2 Poster Looks Like A Marvel Film I was looking at the poster for the upcoming Incredibles 2 film, and noticed that it looked awfully familiar. And not just because I saw and enjoyed the first Incredibles film in 2004, but because the poster seemed…exactly like a Marvel film. Specifically, one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, AKA, ...
  • Is Deadpool in the Avengers’ Universe? Marvel is a pretty big entertainment property,  spanning The X-Men (including  Deadpool as their R-rated step-child), the MCU, the comics, and a whole host of related TV shows falling under the franchise’s umbrella. It’s not a ...
  • The 5 Movies You Need To Watch Before Infinity War At this time, there are exactly 19 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant Man & The Wasp is coming soon (to make an even 20) but that tale will probably be a self-contained story: a palette cleanser after the lingering after-effects of mighty number 19, the Avengers Infinity War. You probably already ...

  • Avenger Superhero Powers, by Category With a metric ton of heroes, superheros, powered beings, and skilled fighters to keep track of in the Marvel Cinematic Universe,  it’s easy to forget not everyone is an innately god-like, supersensory fighting machine. At least in the X-Men Universe things are simple: you’re either a normal human, or a ...

  • Avengers Infinity War – Characters Missing in Action, Whereabouts Unknown Some characters’ whereabouts from the immensely popular Avengers – Infinity War aren’t shown by the end of the movie, leaving fans wondering where they might be, and if they’ll show up again.

  • Avengers Infinity War – what does the post credit scene mean? Major spoilers. Do not read until AFTER you see Infinity War. What happens – In the post-credits scene of Avengers – Infinity War, Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders (Hill) are alerted of Thanos’ attack on Wakanda. While they’re gathering information, a car crashes in front of them. They check the car and ...
  • Movie Review – Avengers Infinity War – An Unrivaled Marvel Epic I have to hand it to the MCU creative team. They delivered an epic. Step back and think about that for a second. The lead up to this movie was 10 years in the making; it has a cast of characters that sprawls for pages, yet we know every one of ...

  • Prettiest Live Action Movies Here’s a fun topic, a list of the “prettiest” ever live action movies. They have to be gorgeous on their own merits, plot aside. I’m looking for outstanding visuals. What qualifies as pretty? Lots of color, slick visual or computer generated effects that stand up through time, creative set-pieces, stylish ...
  • Thor Ragnarok – Demented & Fun Deleted Scenes The Blu-Ray for Thor: Ragnarok has some immensely entertaining deleted scenes. Some are creepy fun (like the Grandmaster’s proclivities and polysexual tastes) and others are just a joy to watch and re-watch (Bruce Banner sucking down..um…noodles?) You should probably view these in the order presented here, which weaves around and ...
  • Mark Ruffalo Sneaks in a Hulk Movie We’ve had two prior Hulk movies no one was happy with, and then Avengers rolled around. His friendship with Tony Stark enchanted, matching Robert Downy ...
  • Best Movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Up to Thor: Ragnarok) Here’s RunPee Jilly’s list of the best-to-worst films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since so many of these movies are good, and there are so many of them, I’ve chosen to rank the films by “tier”. Top Tier, Middle Tier, and Bottom Tier. (And one that is simply Bad.) I’m ...
  • MCU Movie Rewatch – Thor 2: The Dark World I was surprised at how easy Thor 2 was to re-watch. I remember it as “the boring installment.” It’s still not exciting on the level of the top tier of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Avengers, Civil War, Black Panther and Thor’s own 3 – Ragnarok). Making myself even ...
  • Movie Review – Black Panther – One Incredible Party Opening night at Black Panther was an all-out celebration. All six showings at my cinema were sold out, and showings continued to sell out through the weekend. But the audience was ecstatic at my premier, completely into the event, dressed in traditional African attire, laughing, cheering, applauding, hooting, and having a ...
  • Movie Review: Thor 3 – Ragnorak (Jilly’s POV) Thor 3, AKA Ragnarok, was incredibly engaging and hard to tear my eyes from. It’s now in my top tier of MCU movies, beaten only by the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Hemsworth’s slightly dim but mighty character is a joy, from his 4th wall-breaking open, to the mid-credit ...
  • New Black Panther Trailer is Fantastic – Watch the Video Show Off Wakanda I saw the new Black Panther trailer when I went to see Thor  – Ragnarok, and it looks GORGEOUS. Sumptuous. Luxuriously detailed and kind of intense. Seriously, I could watch this preview all day. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sure knows how to create anticipation for their constellation of movies. It’s all ...
  • Movie Review: Thor 3 – Ragnarok (Dan’s POV) Sometimes you leave the theater loving a movie, but after giving it a little thought it starts to diminish. Other movies don’t make an immediate impact, but after some thought, and rewatching, becomes a favorite. I think Thor: Ragnarok will be one of the few films that accomplishes both. I ...
  • Movie Review – Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 There are two reviews here; Dan’s and Jill’s, enjoy! Dan says: The first GotG is, I think, the very best of the Marvel movies. While GotGv2 isn’t quite as good, it certainly didn’t disappoint. The theme of the story (father/son reunion) isn’t anything new, but writer/director James Gunn weaves a thread into ...

  • Movie Review – Iron Man – Genius, Philanthropist, etc who started it all This is the movie that started it all for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it still holds up after all this time. In fact, knowing the character arc of Tony Stark (at least up to the end of Infinity War) makes this first movie even better. Not many franchises can ...
