Logan [2017]

There will be spoilers!

So, about a week back, I saw the movie Logan. Online of course. And I was disappointed. The girl playing Logan’s daughter was good. Really good. At least in my opinion. But the story itself, not so much. The integration of Professor X in it didn’t make much sense. I did know a bit of the backstory about Laura, weapon X and all that rot. But not really from comic books, I don’t read those. But there is the X-men Evolution and then wikis and also, if something appears in more than three fanfics, I start looking at it as possible canonical information.

Also, I have absolutely no idea as to where this movie fits with all the other live action ones. I mean, I have a bit of an idea where it fits in comics and other source material, but hey, the movies are somewhat crazy in this.

Oh well, the movie was chaotic and didn’t live up to my expectations. If you’re a die hard marvel fan, sure, go ahead and try it, it might be necessary for some weird continuity in regards to future movies, but other than that, real disappointment.

The “avengers” side of the marvel verse is done much better. Can’t wait for Ragnarok and Infinity wars.

First of, I’m not gonna go into the comic-verse, only the movie verse. I never read the comic books and I never will. Comic books aren’t my style and I just cannot get over how some of the characters are drawn. Like Hawkeye, I mean, purple? Weird purple? Come on! After seeing him being portrayed by Renner, I just can’t imagine him in any other way! And I mean, Renner, who could say no to that?

So, that’s why I’ll never read the comic books, On the other hand, I never say no to going on the internet and finding more about specific characters. Not all but sometimes, further info is necessary.

However, I’ve watched practically everything that is part of MCU (Marvel cinematic universe). With the exception of Amazing spiderman 2, where I’m waiting for a better quallity to be available on the net. Maybe it’s already there, but I have yet to see it.

Still, the best thing about Marvel is that they created this whole universe that is interconnected in all their movies and even the comics, but as I haven’t read those, I can’t really talk. Still, the Marvel Cinematic Universe – MCU – is great and I love how it all ties together. I mean, for a while, the x-men stood alone, but in one of the other movies, I think it was in Captain America 2, in the after credits scene, there are Wanda and Pietro Maximoff – Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. And those are mutants and so it ties together nicely.

The whole idea is amazing and I’m eagerly awaiting the new movies that are announced. Like the one about Black Widow and Cap 3 as well as Avengers 2 and I also heard rumors about a third version of the Hulk movie, this one staring Mark Ruffalo, the one who played Banner in Avengers. I think it would be interesting. As it would have the same actor and I think that would be a plus.

So, I will probably write more about the individual movies as they come out or as I watch them, but I’m not making any promises. Still, MCU is amazing and I think you should watch the movies. As well as the TV series Agents of SHIELD and even the one shots that are basically very short films – like “Something funny happened on the way to Thor’s Hammer”.

Agents of SHIELD

(Written on 16. 9. 2014)

Today, I finished watching the first season of Agents of SHIELD. It was awesome and with several twists I didn’t expect. Like, who turned out to be the clairvoyant and also that Ward was Hydra. Well, I did expect that a little, as it was a part of a story I read, but still… Well, the good part is that they caught him and there were a lot of funny parts.

Like, at the end, there was Coulson going back for a “thing” and firing it and obliterating the clairvoyant who wasn’t really clairvoyant.

There will also be a second season, so I’m very much looking forward to it. And how Coulson will rebuild SHIELD. That will surely be interesting.

This show is really good and I loved it. Also the fact, that it is Marvel is a good thing. Right now, I’m pretty much obsessed with anything that is Marvel, so I watch anything and everything I can get my hand son. Including non-Marvel movies that have the Avengers cast playing in them.

And it will probably not stop there and I will look also into stuff that has Coulson’s team playing in it.

And what about you, dear readers? Do you like Marvel and more specifically Agents of SHIELD? If yes, what did you like the most? For me it was the fact that Coulson was alive and kicking ass. Also, I love Skye’s hacking skills and the bickering between Fitz and Simmons. It’s hillarious.

On the other hand, I was really hoping that maybe Hawkeye or Black Widow would appear on it for at least one episode, but no, they didn’t… Well, we did get to see Sif in one ep… But that’s not enough. So I hope that one of the two I mentioned will be on season 2. Even if just for one episode. One episode would be enough and Hawkeye is such an underappreciated Avenger… I think he should have more screen time.

Okay, I will shut up now and let you make heads and tails of this post.

And as for coments, they would make me happy, so if you have something to say, say it!

A funny thing happened on the way to Thor’s hammer

(Originally written on 2. 8. 2014)

I just couldn’t resist writing about this. It was pure chance I stumbled across the description of this short movie, well, Marvel One shot. So, I read the description and my first decision was to ignore it, but then, I got really into the Agents of SHIELD and I really like Coulson so I decided to look into it. And it turns out that this little Marvel One Shot is just a four minute short movie about Coulson on his way to Thor’s hammer. And on his way, he stops at this gas station and while he’s in there, it is assaulted by robbers. So he deals with them and it’s all just SO funny! 

So, I was thinking of actually embedding the video, but decided that no. I had to find it the hard way, so you have to do the same. Just know that it’s worth it. 

And it has great music! 

And it has Phil in it! 

Go and find it and watch it. And when you do, come back and tell me what you think about it. 

 

Oh, and yes, I know this is mainly pointless post, but I just had to write it!
