Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Is the Joss Whedon Sequel We Never Had

Before The Avengers became Marvel’s biggest hit (to the tune of $1.5B), Joss Whedon was asked about making Avengers 2 and gave his thoughts on what makes a better sequel. He said that the sequel should go smaller, more personal, instead of just repeating what worked in the first. Then came Avengers: Age of Ultron—it’s … More Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Is the Joss Whedon Sequel We Never Had

Doctor Strange (Scott Derrickson, 2016)

I’ve Seen Stranger Things Like Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins, Stephen Strange went to Asia looking for the cure (unbeknownst to the former doctor, the band resides in England—y’know, Three Imaginary Boys, 1979). Unlike Christian Bale’s Wayne, Benedict Cumberbach’s Dr. Strange has a slick sense of humor (“Just Wong?… Like Adele… Or Aristotle? Drake? Bono? … More Doctor Strange (Scott Derrickson, 2016)

Foo Fighters’ Albums, Ranked From Worst to Best

The Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl’s solo studio project that quickly evolve into a full band, are now well on their way to becoming a “classic rock” band. More than two decades old and they’re still at it. For better or worse. They are like the granddaddies of corporate rock now—irrelevant and boring—in the same way … More Foo Fighters’ Albums, Ranked From Worst to Best

Revisiting The Dark Knight (Almost) Ten Years After

You Could Have It So Much Better If I have to pick my favorite scenes or sequence in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, one would be the part when Batman failed to save Rachel Dawes, second would be the opening bank heist, Heath Ledger’s Joker bombing the hospital would be third and lastly, Batman interrogating … More Revisiting The Dark Knight (Almost) Ten Years After

Buddha’s Pest (The Mongols, 2004)

Got Buddha’s Pest few months ago—got it pre-loved, second-hand, from eBay. As advertised, it is in mint condition. The CD inserts, with production notes and lyrics, are still intact—means the previous owner really took good care of it. It’s quite amusing though, that the liner notes come with directions and precautions, warning about the dangers … More Buddha’s Pest (The Mongols, 2004)

Have you ever wished you were a 90’s kid? FYI, the 2000’s was awesome too!

Note: This was originally written in September 2016, around the time everyone was going crazy over a TV ad featuring the Eraserheads. “We grew up listening to the music from the best decade ever.”                                           … More Have you ever wished you were a 90’s kid?

Kong: Skull Island

The year is 1973 and the US troops are leaving Vietnam. A US senator reluctantly funds a scientific expedition to Skull Island, an uncharted island in the Southeast Asia. An expert hunter-tracker, a photojournalist, and a helicopter squadron join the scientists in the expedition, braving a cloud system of perpetual thunderstorms that covers the island. … More Kong: Skull Island

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Gavin Hood, 2009)

When it comes to the worse Marvel-based movies, the B-grade X-Men Origins: Wolverine is easily among the front-runners. As a comic-book movie, Wolverine is one serious offender. It has no regards for a lot of things: the first X-Men movie (where Sabretooth appeared), the Weapon X series, the other X-Men characters (i.e., Gambit, Deadpool). But outside … More X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Gavin Hood, 2009)
