You can also come here for a weekly…

Comic Review: Avengers #5

The Background- The Marvel Legacy launch is well underway now. Amazing Spider-Man seemed to be the culmination of all of our hopes from this new era, and all we need now is that Fantastic Four book just a couple weeks away. But, what is happening at the core with the Avengers? It has been something…

Complete Ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is jam-packed with amazing movies. So much so that I have found myself claiming over a dozen of them are in my top five favourites. The problem is, I have been certain about which films are my absolute choice favourites, and I know which ones are swimming at the bottom, but…

Comic Review: Avengers #4

The Background- The Avengers are the biggest talk of the summer with Infinity War blowing our collective minds, but back in the comic world, the team is in their own shake-up. As part of Marvel’s new Legacy project, each of Marvel’s mainstay titles have been re-launched once again. Unlike some of the hard to swallow…

Movie Review: Incredibles 2

Contemplating the original Incredibles I can confidently say that it is my favourite of the Pixar line-up.

The fact it came out during my adulthood, pre-children,…

Comic Review: Oblivion Song #5

The Background- For being into issue five, Oblivion Song is moving quickly along. Especially considering how much background was necessary for us to even understand what is going on. Following our hero Nathan, we have discovered a lot about Robert Kirkman’s world. And, last we left things were getting exciting as Nathan had found the…

Top Ten Superhero Families

Well, the time has finally come for me to go see Incredibles 2. I don’t know what has taken me so long as the first one is probably my favourite Pixar movie. As I get myself pumped up to see this super-powered family it got me thinking about some other great super families. So, for…

Sunday Mise en Place (July 2 to 8, ‘018)

This is going to get messy. Welcome back to the Sunday Mise en Place where I get to talk about whatever I feel like. I am surprised all of the time by who, and how many people actually read these weekly ramblings. You guys are awesome. Well, today is definitely a rambling, and it was…
