“Vision, is this really happening?” Near the end of the second episode of Wandavision, Wanda poses this question to Vision as she suddenly goes from being without child to very pregnant in a blink of an eye. Yes, the start of the episode sees the couple pull up the covers so they can “get down” in a classic sitcom trope, but the mathematics of the … Continue reading Wandavision- An Exploration Of Loss, Grief, & and How We Cope
July 2, 2019 Now, out of context, this might seem like a random date that I just picked out of the ether. Maybe I’m pining for the 4th of July holiday weekend or maybe I’m just wishing the temperature wasn’t in the twenties. Perhaps I just flipped through a 2019 calendar, that I just so happen to have randomly hanging around, and landed on July … Continue reading The Return of the MCU
The pandemic has really put quite the damper of the 2020 Marvel year, hasn’t it? Think about it, we were prime for sooooo much Marvel goodness this year. There was going to be Black Widow kicking off Phase Four and probably giving Nat the sendoff she deserves while introducing what is to come next for the MCU following Thanos and all things Infinity Stone related. … Continue reading Did The MCU Just Find Its Kang the Conqueror?!
Today kind of feels like that moment near the end of Endgame. All of our heroes have dramatically returned from The Snap, I refuse to call it the Blip, and the most epic superhero showdown ever is taking place on screen. Ant-Man is gigantic and punching space monsters in the face. Cap has Thor’s hammer. And then out of the dust emerges Scarlet Witch and … Continue reading 2020 The Year Without A Comic Con
Everyone stop what you’re doing! Just stop. Don’t take that sip of water. Ignore the dog barking in the other room. Don’t go to the bathroom just yet. Don’t flip those burgers… maybe you should do that. I don’t want you to overcook dinner that’s not cool. Otherwise, stop what you’re doing. I want all your focus here on this column. The only thing you … Continue reading The Perfect Role For Giancarlo Esposito In the MCU
I’ve been quarantined or social distancing for close to four months at this point. Four. Months. That’s crazy. In four months, I’ve played a lot of Animal Crossing, I’ve binged a lot of television, we’re talking amounts that would be alarming to others, and I’ve read a number of books and graphic novels. In those four months, as previously discussed, I have not gone to … Continue reading I Am Geek MCU Movie Rankings (Updated)
There’s something to be said about the dramatic entrance that just gets the blood pumping. A dramatic entrance so badass that the adrenaline starts coursing through the veins making you believe that you can run through a wall… don’t try this. You can’t. A dramatic entrance so spectacular that you start to consider trying to top it the next time you’re invited out to meet … Continue reading Who Has the Best Dramatic Entrances In The MCU?
Often times in entertainment the things we love don’t get celebrated for their brilliance as much as we would like. It’s that classic rom-com formula. The things we love are the girl next door who are these obscure wallflowers because they wear glasses and clips in their hair and the only reason that they aren’t celebrated is that they haven’t removed their glasses or the … Continue reading This Is Finally Better Call Saul’s Time
Waking up at five o’clock in the morning blows. There’s no way around it, it just sucks. I would love to sleep until six, seven, eight o’clock but there is too much to be done and no time to waste. I can hear you now, “what could you possibly have to do at five o’clock in the morning” and the answer is mostly work out … Continue reading Black Widow Trailer- Celebrating the Legacy Of Natasha Romanoff
Just stop… please. I’m not sure how much more I can take. Before 2019 I used to believe I was a strong man. An emotional man? Yes, but strong within that emotion. I had resolve. I had strength. A support system. Coping mechanisms. And now… now, I’m just a puddle. An emotionally drained pile of goo that just wants to twirl down the drain so … Continue reading 2019 and the Great Lack of Care of My Emotions
