“Marvel’s Spider-Meh”: My review of Marvel’s Spider-Man (episodes 1 and half of 2)

Rating: 1/5

If there’s any Marvel character with more animated adaptations than you can count, it’s definitely Spider-Man. From the 1960s to the present day, there has been an animated series depicting the iconic wallcrawler, with each of them depicting the character in its own unique way. With the latest show, Ultimate Spider-Man, having just ended eight months ago, a new Spidey cartoon is now airing, simply titled “Marvel’s Spider-Man“. Heck, much like what Disney is doing right now with the new DuckTales, the first episode was released on Disney XD’s YouTube channel. I watched the first episode and half of the second, and then I gave up on it. Yeah, I know, that might be a bit prudent of me, and if you like the show, that’s fine, but I just couldn’t go through with it. And yes I get that this show is “made for kids”, but I find that to be a bullshit excuse for something that’s bad. Anyone watching, be it kids or whoever, deserves better. This show might actually be worse than Ultimate Spider-Man, and that’s saying something, considering how bad that show was. Here are my reasons why: Read More

My idea for an MCU Fantastic Four TV series: Season 1 Outline/Summary

Fantastic Four logo

Let’s face it, the Fantastic Four NEVER had it easy when it came to movies. Sure, comic book movies have had their misfires now and then, even to this day, but one thing that’s been consistently clear is that times have changed, comic book movies have gotten better over the years with actual thought and effort put into them, and Fantastic Four movies always SUCK. They’ve been adapted to film FOUR times, and you’d think that maybe, just maybe, the people behind them would say, “hmm, well, this clearly didn’t work the first time, so maybe instead of fucking up a few more times, let’s actually try to make a good movie out of it”. But no, they keep getting worse. I’ll admit, the Tim Story movies are kind of guilty pleasures, in a way, but really they’re just stupid, especially after what they did to Galactus (seriously, a fucking CLOUD?), the Josh Trank movie is absolute garbage, and the Roger Corman movie, which oddly enough never got an official release, from what I heard from reviews and stuff, might actually be the best one in comparison.

So what’s the solution to this problem of making a good live action Fantastic Four adaptation? Well, for one thing, the people behind the movies, that being Fox and Simon Kinberg and whoever else, want to try another crack at it, despite the disaster that was Fan4stic. Seriously, just no. Stop it. You guys tried, and failed, and it was probably the biggest failure out of all the attempts to make an FF movie, so just stop it. Give the rights back to Marvel, or at least friggin share them (along with X-Men), and maybe try to work together and make something decent. Still, even if the rights were given back or shared with, I don’t think a movie should be made, cause the other movies pretty much tainted the idea of FF ever being a good movie. My solution to this is to make a Fantastic Four television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it could be aired either on ABC or Netflix, maybe even Hulu or Freeform, if what I hear about Runways and Cloak and Dagger are true.

My 3rd Top 5 Characters for Young Justice

While it’s yet to be determined when (and also where, though I’m guessing Netflix) the third season of Young Justice will air, I can still make some lists of characters that I think would make good fits for the show and the story possibilities with them. Also, rest in peace Miguel Ferrer, no one could do a better Vandal Savage than you for Young Justice, and whoever takes over the role would have big shoes to fill. So here’s my third list of 5 characters I think would make a good fit for YJ:

Teen Titans GO!: The Fourth Wall TV Review

Anyone else get the feeling that these things are staring at our souls? Christ…

Rating: 1/5

This is something I’ve been looking forward to and dreading for a while: reviewing Teen Titans GO! Never thought I’d actually do this, but I figure with a lot of others giving TTG flak, I thought I’d put in my two cents. Bare in mind, I’m probably going to talk about stuff regarding this show that you’ve probably already heard before, so forgive me if I sound like I’m regurgitating this stuff. Read More

Infinity Train TV Review

Rating: 5/5

Apparently CN is trying to get new shows off the ground, one of which has really piqued my interest, that being Infinity Train. So far only the pilot has been released, but ever since I watched it on YouTube it’s been stuck in my head and I had to talk about it here. From what I understand the show is about a girl named Tulip (voiced by Ashley Johnson, the voice of Ellie from The Last of Us and Terra from Teen Titans, and currently stars on Blindspot), and her robot friend One-One who splits into two robots, Glad-One (voiced by Jeremy Crutchley who sounds like John Oliver) and Sad-One (voiced by Owen Dennis, the creator of the show, who sounds like Maurice LaMarche), navigating through a mysterious train that is seemingly limitless and each car housing an internal dimension. It’s very interesting in regards to its premise, simple yet dynamic animation, voice acting, characters, humor, and the possibilities it presents through its surrealism. It kinda reminds me of some the recent cartoons both CN and Disney have done, in a way. Read More

My Second Top 5 Characters for Young Justice

So yeah, I’m gonna make this a thing like with my Legends of Tomorrow character lists. Honestly, thinking about both of those shows, they are in a way similar to each other, though they do use different methods of storytelling, different formats on which to do them (i.e. YJ is animated and LOT is live-action), and yet they kinda have different yet similar premises to each other, in which both shows are about a wide variety of characters from DC Comics and team up together and go on missions together, difference between em is that YJ is about, as the title suggests, the young characters, while LOT has heroes and villains teaming up together. With both of these shows having these elements, it allows them to incorporate a lot of characters, concepts, and ideas to be put into them, no matter how unlikely or difficult it is, and manages to pull it off well. That being said, there’s still plenty of characters that can be put into the show, regardless of whether they be members of the Team, supporting characters, or antagonists. Here we go: Read More

My First Top 5 Characters for Young Justice

young-justice-poster

So it’s been confirmed that Young Justice is coming back for a third season! Hooray! This has been something me and many other people have been hoping to happen for a LONG time. I’ll admit, at the time that it aired on TV, I didn’t get to watch it much, but what I did see of it was very good, and I’m glad it was well-received and had a strong loyal fanbase, and thankfully I’ve made up for that by watching ALL the episodes on the blu ray releases and loving how awesome it is to this day.

Young Justice was about a group of young superheroes trying to prove themselves to be full-fledged superheroes, instead of sidekicks as regarded by their mentors and older counterparts, by taking on covert missions against the Justice League’s enemies, who’ve formed their own group known as “The Light” (really just another nickname for the Secret Society of Super Villains or Legion of Doom). The show was like a mix of the youthful energy of Teen Titans and the scale/scope of Justice League/Justice League Unlimited, with the emotional depth and wider universe appeal of both added to it as well as that of the DC Universe as a whole.
