The Defenders

It was good.

I enjoyed it more than Iron Fist, about as much as I enjoyed Luke Cage.

That’s about all I can say.

The big takeaway?

Yeah.

Saturday

I started the day with an early screening of Dunkirk.

From the standpoint of a history and World War II enthusiast, it was a great story, well told.

From a film standpoint, it was a good movie.  I can see it getting nominated for awards, and Christopher Nolan may actually win an Oscar for directing.

But because my tastes differ from an Oscar voter, the movie was simply ‘good’.  Entertaining, compelling, but not a film for everyone.

3 stars out of 4.

So many trailers released for so many things that I’m waiting for.

Of them all, the Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok trailers were my favorite movie related ones (Ready Player One gets an honorable mention).

The TV ones were plentiful, with all the CW series and Star Trek Discovery shown.

So much to look forward to in the future.

The Panda’s back.

I don’t know how I feel about this, to be honest.  I believe in second chances, and this season is a wash, so what does it hurt?

Pablo Sandoval was young and made a dumb choice, like many young, dumb people do.

We’ll see what happens.

Homecoming Review

My favorite Spider-Man movie.

Your mileage may vary.

Within the first few minutes, my jaw dropped.  I almost screamed.

No, I can’t say why.  Once you see the movie, you’ll understand, if you know me.

The little things, like Mets stuff in Peter’s room, the music, the nods to the rest of the MCU, made this movie so personal to me.

My spirit animal in this movie is Ned.  I’d be him in this story, but much skinnier, like I was in high school.

And it really did feel like an ’80s high school film, John Hughes-style.

Go see it!  Eight thumbs up!

LOGAN

It was okay.

FOX still can’t create anything that compares to even the Netflix Marvel stuff.  Seriously.

It had some cool moments, but as a whole it was just kinda ‘meh’.

That’s really all I can say.
