Boasting a duller, nastier wit than its predecessor and a newfound brush with sincerity, the adult oriented super-anti-hero sequel Deadpool 2 lacks the anarchic glee and spontaneity of its blockbuster predecessor, but it still has a lot to enjoy.
Go back to Wakanda this week as Marvel’s Black Panther arrives on Blu-ray. The GATE is giving away three copies of the massively entertaining film, which is out now on Blu-ray and Digital HD.
Avengers: Infinity War is a huge payoff for a film franchise that spans 10 years, 18 films, and dozens of characters. And for those of us who waited through all the end-credit scenes of every Marvel film, trying to learn everything we could about this universe of superheroes, Infinity War is a very satisfying ride, bringing together a lot of storytelling that’s been developed movie by movie, year over year.
Krysten Ritter has been fortunate enough to land the coveted role of one of pop culture’s most endearing and timely heroes in recent memory. Returning for the second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones in the titular role, Ritter is the latest performer to transform their career by portraying a “superhero” of sorts that everyday people can actually relate to instead of an unstoppable, goody-two-shoes crime fighter. And to talk to Ritter, one gets the distinct sense that she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Let Thor electrify you in Thor: Ragnarok, as the god of thunder (and lightning) takes on a sister he didn’t even know he had. Enter now for a chance to win one of three copies of Thor: Ragnarok on Blu-ray courtesy of Marvel Studios.
Black Panther is a triumph. The film is powerful, thrilling, well-written, and filled with amazing talent, on screen and behind the scenes. What makes the film all the more powerful is the strength of the characters, and the fact that the leading women steal the show.
All the major players have been introduced, the stage has been set, and Marvel has finally debuted the first look at what fan can expect from Avengers: Infinity War in the first trailer for the new film, which opens on May 4, 2018.
Thor has been one of my favorite Marvel characters on screen. He’s brash and funny, and he’s from a whole other realm than the mortals of Earth. His films, however, have never really lived up to the potential of Thor’s thunderous charm, and the charms of star Chris Hemsworth, at least until Taika Waititi took the figurative helm in Thor: Ragnarok.
Taika Waititi seems to know talent when he sees it, which is probably why the director casts himself in all of his own films. The tongue-in-cheek director has a rather dry sense of humour, and that makes him the perfect comic relief on-screen, whether you’re talking about What We Do In The Shadows, or his new film, Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok where he plays the oddly lovable rock monster, Korg.
I look forward to October all year long. I love September, but I know that around the middle of October things slow down just a bit, the weather gets cooler and nicer, and I love a good hot apple cider right about now. This year has felt like summer has crept into fall more than I like, but the weather has been wonderful. I also finally was able to recover from a cold that’s stuck with me for more than two weeks.
