“TWO CENTS TUESDAYS: MARVEL’S ‘INHUMANS'”

Hey there ladies and gentelnerds! Im gonna do my darndest to get myself back on track with my blogging. 

So, I’m dusting off the “Two Cent Tuesdays” segment of the blog, to give My “Two Cents” on Marvel’s INHUMANS.

For those of you who don’t know.. The Two Cents segment is a lot like the “My Thoughts On..” Segment.. But a little more loosy goosey in a way. So, here we go..


It’s good! Its actually pretty darn good. A lot of ppl have been talking shit about it. But its not all that bad. It’s not perfect. It’s got a lot of flaws. But it is entertaining. 

I think folks just had too much anticipation going into it, maybe? I mean.. It is a T.V Show. 

What were you folks expecting? Avengers quality material?

 It’s also in the same network as “Agents Of Shield”

What budget do you think they had? YES! The cgi for Madusa’s hair was total shit! No doubt about that..

But its television.. Get over it! Thats why they cut her hair off.. 

Another dumb as shit move on thier part.. But i can understand it and accept it at face value. Still stupid.

The acting isn’t top notch.. But they are clearly doing the best they can do with what they were given..

Its a mini series.. Ive only gotten up to episode.. Uhm… 4? I think? The past 2 eps. Are on my dvr. (I havent had the time.. Work and life have been… Bleh! I mean.. Have you not read my last blog?! Its been a mission getting back on track.) so they’ve been rushing things along. Its a shame and to be expected given all the bullshit behind the scenes stuff.. But it’s good. And they’re doing thier best. However, i will say this.. I love Loki’s storyline.. Its actually the best thing about the… Say what now?.. Thats not loki?..

Ohhhh!! Right.. I was wondering why they replaced Hiddelston with Ramsey Bolton..

All jokes aside.. Maximus is, by far, the bright spot of the entire show. They clearly ripped off the first “THOR” Brother v. Brother story arc. But.. Whats his name?..Iwan Rheon?.. Ok.. Ramsey Bolton! Is fantastic! So great.. Hats off to him.. I would watch a whole show with just him.

INHUMANS had so much damn potential! I honestly think.. Before all this.. Back when they had to take it off the schedule entirely.. They should have put INHUMANS for phase 4. With a whole new direction for the MCU, after AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR/ INFINITY GAUNTLET. MCU’s phase 4 should have had Inhumans as thier Guardians of The Galaxy franchise. Or at least, it could have been thier X-Men franchise. Its not Avengers.. Doesnt have to be… But a new cosmic franchise after Guardians is finished, would have been a better choice.

Marvel should have waited. They rushed it.. And if they had to really get it done. They should have given it to Netflix. I think the ppl behind The Netflix Marvel U could have done it better if given the proper time. 

The INHUMANS 

And thier extended character list is epic.. Its good. Its not the best thing on TV. Even Agents was kinda shit in its first season.. But it got better over time.. INHUMANS has been doing so for me so far as this series progresses. Will it come back for a season 2? Should it?!.. Who the fuck knows! Either way.. Marvel screwed the pooch a bit.. But for me.. Its good. I like it!..But..

Thats Just. My, TWO CENTS!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!: “LOGAN”(No Spoilers)

Greetings and salutations, Ladies and Gentelnerds! And welcome to another addition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!”

Today’s Movie (if it isnt obvious..) 

“LOGAN” 

THE STORY: 

James Howlett (aka: Logan) has been serving out his years as a Limo Driver for hire down in the southwest. His days as an X-Man long gone and far in the past. After a mysterious event took out the X-Men, all that is left, is him and a sickly and aged Professor Xavier. Mutants are all but extenict. Logans quiet life is turned upside down when a young girl with the same powers as his, shows up

with a band of secret government soldiers, known as “The Revers” on her tail. 

Logan reluctantly comes to the girls aid. Only to discover her shocking history and what it means for his future.

Very, very.. VERY loosely based on the hit graphic novel “Old Man Logan” 

By Mark Millar and Steve Mcniven. The only similaritys are Logan, it takes place in the future and theres a road trip.. Literally.. Thats all that has this film resembeling the comic. But you know what.. It does not matter.

“LOGAN” is a beautiful movie. It transcends beyond a comic book film. Its a movie about a man coming to grips with himself. Past, Present and Future. After so many years of physical and mental abuse, from himself and outside forces, Logan learns what it means.. To be human. To feel, Happy.. To feel Love. The story, is short for the films 2 hr run time. But it is very simple and to the point. James Mangold directed a masterpiece of a film. He also wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay. Which was brilliant. 

THE CAST: 

First and foremost.. Dafne Keen, stole the Mother Fucking Show! 

Her X-23 was probably the best part of the movie. Besides Hugh Jackman, She was.. Phenomenal. She literally stole every frame she was in. As i did some research as i began to write this review. It turns out, this is the young ladys very first film debut.. And what a debut! She had a previous role on a tv series called “Refugees”. But Logan is her first feature film and she Rocked it.

It sucks that this is Hugh Jackmans final turn as Wolverine. But he really brought his A game for this.. And thats saying something. Cause everytime he puts on those claws, he is on point. Every Time. But, somehow.. This felt different. His performance was.. Heavier, of you will. He reall capped it all off pefectly and i Hate to see him go. I really do. 

Patrick Stewart’s Xavier is as always, wonderful and yet.. Extremely differnt. I’ve never heard Xavier drop so many F bombs in my entire life. And im happy i got to experience it. This also being Stewarts last go around as Xavier.. It was a beautiful, yet heartbreaking send off for him and the character. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Direction. Acting. Story. Cinematography.. Everything was beautifully done. Honestly.. Its near perfection. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

The fact that it is not in any continuity to any of the previous films at all, is not a negative. What, IS a negative for me.. I would have loved to have seen the Continuity it would have sprang from. (if that makes any sense) I wish more of the other movies were within this time frame.

 For a 2hr 17 min film.. I wanted more. It left me wanting more. Not that it doesnt end well.. I just didnt want it to end, i guess? I feel like more could have been added in the begining, middle and end. I feel like, there might have been more material left on the editing floor and i hope we get a longer cut on the DVD release (hopefully).

 There could have been more.. Bonding time for X23 and Logan. Or i would have at least appreciated a little more togetherness. 

A flashback of (SPOILERS) when (Spoiler) reveals (Spoiler) before hes (Spoiler) by (Spoiler) Wow.. Didnt think i could pull that off.. Now! Here’s the trick. If you have seen the film, and can guess what the fuck im talking about. Please feel free to hit me up with the answer and your thoughts.

OVERALL: 

“LOGAN” is in fact, the “The Dark Knight” of the X-Men franchise of Movies (and it only took them 8 movies and 20 some odd years to get it done.) An honest to goodness Masterpiece from start to finish. It grabs you by the neck on a coaster ride of emotions, and doesnt let you go until the very end.. And when its over.. You wish you never stopped. You will laugh. You will cry. You will be happy. You will be sad. And then, when all is said and done, You Will Be Greatful. I give “LOGAN” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 9/10 (probably my higest score to date.) You have to see this. 

Thank you all so much for reading and before I go.. I just want to send a message to James Mangold and the People at 20th Century Fox.. Although i know they may never read this.. “Please, Re release Logan around Oscar voting season later this year, in Black and White. Have Hugh Jackman up for best actor, Patrick Stewart best Supporting, Dafne Keen Best Supporting Actress( or best Lead is fine) and Logan for Best Picture and Best screenplay and best cinematography and yourself for Best Director. This Movie.. Truly deserves such recognition. And also.. Thank You! Thank you for such a beautiful and wonderful movie experiance.”

Have you guys seen Logan yet, what did you think? Hit me up. Please leave a like. And pkease follow/subscribe. Thank You.

Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. FOX’S FUTURE WITH THE X-MEN UNIVERSE”

Greetings, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to yet another thought provoking article of ‘PBS’ quality proportions… 

So! While WB/DC is trying to get itself together like Humpty Dumpty, and Marvel Studios is full steam ahead into its Phase 4. FOX is trudging ever forward with their X-Men Universe. (Should i even call it that?) 

After the “disappointment” that was ‘X-Men:Apocalypse’ (I personally, enjoyed it and found it entertaining for what it was. Flaws and all.) And many of the actor contracts being done with the completion of that movie. Many believed X-Men’s future would be headed for yet another Reboot. 
However, it appears that would not be the case. Fox is moving forward with the  current X-Men “Continuity” (I use that term very very loosely.) established in ‘Apocalypse’. Meaning many of the young cast members from that film, will be coming back.


Now, that can suggest they will either be coming back for another ‘X-Men’ titled film OR the much talked about “New Mutants” movie. Neither has been confirmed on either matter.

X-FORCE, also is currently in full planning stages. A script and scriptwriter has been established at this point. Cast in characters has not been brought up for discussion as of yet. 

DEADPOOL 2, Is still in development, with a scheduled production date coming this.. Summer? I believe. Even After a little slip up with the whole director situation. Everything seems to be going smoothly. 
And lastly.. Probably the real reason why i wanted to write this article. Fox is currently in talks with long time X-Writer and Producer Simon Kinberg,

to direct the next Upcoming X-Film.. And He himself, has stated that he wants to do, The Dark Phoenix Saga.. 

(Turn away children.. Explosive Rant in t-minus.. 3.2.1..)
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!  Why the fuck cant they leave the damn phoenix saga the fuck alone?! They’ve tried that before, and failed fucking miserably. Its fucking done! Leave it the fuck alone!. There are just too many components needed to tell that story properly and with its proper respect. They’ve fucked the continuty up. They fucked the Phoenix’s actual origin up royally. Not only that.. Kinberg hasnt directed a damn thing.. Ever! Not so much as even a commercial or a DVD extra. He has zero experiance with directing. Now.. Devils advocate.. He has been a producer and writer of these films since X-3: The Last Stand. So hes been in the trenches. He has his tentacles in everything right now. Star Wars, X-Men, lots of things! However.. This is also the same motherfucking dumb piece of shit that gave us.. THIS!..

Thats right folks.. He wrote and produced and (according to some. Not sure if true) Edited/ghost directed, this piece of shit of a.. I dont want to even call it a movie! TRASH!

There’s plenty of other more qualified Directors out there. And more importanly.. There are severel, thousands even, of great X-Men Stories to mine that can be translated for the big screen. For example..

Just to name a few. They seriously need to stop with the Phoenix stuff. Get off her clit for fucks sake! 

Be original or something. FUCK! 

I think im done folks.. Let me knw what you folks think. Hit me up. 

Until, next time folks.. Peace Out!

“THIS JUST IN!: ‘LOGAN’ OFFICIAL TRAILER #2”

OMG! I just can’t… I just.. Smh… IS IT MARCH YET!?! 
Dropped earlier today, if you havent seen it yet.. Check out the newest trailer for the upcoming, “LOGAN” 

“HOW THE X-MEN REBOOT SHOULD BE DONE!”

According to some geek news sites. 20th Century Fox announced that an ‘X-Men’ titled film is set to start filming early 2017. No other news was given. No casts. No director. Nothing. 

As we all know, the X-Universe has also been slated for a reboot. So this news comes as somewhat of a surprise. 

I’ve been planning on working on this article for sometime now and I’ve finally found some time to do it. So.. Here is, “How The X-Men Reboot should be done!” 

First off! Don’t. Do. An. X-Men. Movie! 20th Century Fox should steer clear of the main X-title. Move on. Start anew. X-Factor should be (or should have been) the next series of films. Do like the comics.. 

Bring back the original team and give them a new name. Take the team that was set up at the end of ‘Apocalypse’ 

or a slightly revamped version of the team. But keep the main core team of Cyclops, Jean, Iceman.. We cant have Angel.. 

(thank you Bryan Singer) 

And if Nicolas Hoult doesn’t return as Beast..

They have another Blue guy they can ‘Bamf’ to..

Nightcrawler. We can have Storm and Quicksilver part of the team as well.. 

Fox clearly dosent give a rats ass about Continuity.. But this needs to distance itself away from the old films and start anew in the right way. It really doesnt have to be a hard reboot.. Just distance themselves away from what came before, ever so slightly. Fox has a dependency on recycling the same suporting characters. Blob, Toad, Angel, Emma Frost, and lots of others. They need to go in another direction.

The X-Universe is Full of characters to utilize. Like Grayden Creed and the HLF (Human Liberation Front) Fabian Cortez and the Acolytes. The Storyline from Genosha. 

Cameron Hodge. A scientist who later turns himself into a mechanical monster, 

Bastion! 

Could you image the kind of storyline they could have with a character like Bastion!? Or even the Nimrod Sentinal! 
There really are plenty of stories and characters they can use and develop over several X-films. They just need to distance themselves from the title X-Men for a few years. Develope the rest of the universe. X-Force, New Mutants, Xcaliber. There are plenty to choose from. 

Also.. Leave Wolverine alone for awhile. Give more time and attention to the rest of the characters.

BRAIN FART ALERT! if a hard reboot is thier idea.. Do it Terminator style.. Nimrod is sent back in time to kill Scott and Jean Grey and Cable comes through to protect his parents. Without telling them that they are his parents. And they are crucial to the future of Mutant Kind. Do some time hoping a little and they could very well change the entire timeline.. Even more then Days of Futures Past did. Thats a total Nerds Wet Dream.. But it was the best thing i could think of at the moment. 

So, What do you folks think Fox should do to reboot the X-Universe? Share your ideas, follow/subscribe/ comment Something! 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“WHY 20TH CENTURY FOX, NEEDS TO CUT A DEAL WITH MARVEL STUDIOS!”

Yes.. I said NEEDS TO! This may come as a shock to some of you, ‘Loyal Readers’ as to that i was against The Marvel/Sony Spider-Man deal. I felt that, after the train wreck that was AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Marvel should have let Spidey die at Sony and then when the contract expired, Spidey would just end up back at Marvel with no cost at all. 
When the Sony/Marvel deal was announced I had the feeling that Marvel was helping Sony keep something that rightfully belonged to Them. It was upsetting… THEN, CIVIL WAR happened.. 

And I’ve grown up since then. Or at least, I’ve grown some sense. 
So now 20TH Century Fox is up shits creek with thier X-Men property and are currently considering a full series Reboot. Gut, fanboy instinct is to say, Give Them Back To Marvel! But.. The grown up, more knowledgeable fanboy says..

Marvel has a whole lot on its plate. Phase 3 is nearing its end and Phase 4 is still up in the air at this point. FOX, is not looking to part ways with a franchise thats garnered them so many millions of dollars over the years. They already lost STAR WARS. I dont think they want to give up on this property. 

That being said.. If, indeed, Fox wants to hold on to The X-Men and its characters. They should. No. They Need, to consider a deal with Marvel Studios, to help them right thier ship and get on track. Whether its a trade of characters or property’s (ala Fantastic Four and related Characters *COUGH* silver surfer and galactus*COUGH COUGH*) 

In order to insure a more bankable franchise. 

FOX Needs to find someone who can guide the X-UNIVERSE in the right direction. Kevin Fiege is clearly the right choice. But he too has a lot on his plate.. And i firmly believe that Simon Kinberg 

IS NOT the man for the job! 
Perhaps, once Feige feels that Sony is going in the right direction and can handle the Universe that Marvel has brought Spider-Man into, on its own. Then maybe he can help Fox guide the X-Men later on down the line. 

What Fox lacks in its X-Universe, is stability and continuity. Each movie is practically a stand alone film. 

IF Fox were to strike a deal with Marvel Studios in order to make a more profitable X-Men Franchise for them and a more satisfying experiance for the fans. It would be the best thing they could do. 
With yet another Franchise Reboot looming in the future.. Only time will tell what is in store for us and The X-MEN.

What do you folks think? Would it be wise for Fox to strike a similar deal with Marvel Studios like Sony, in order to save The X-Men? Please leave a comment below. Follow/Subscribe. 

So, until next time folks… Peace Out!
