Image
(Click here for my non-spoiler review of Avengers: Infinity War.)So, are you one of the 6 people that haven't seen Avengers: Infinity War yet?  Well, this article is for you!  While it's possible to go into Marvel's newest ensemble flick without having seen any of the previous movies, it's not recommended.  In fact, this film works best if you've seen them all and you're invested in the characters.  If you don't have time to check them all out, here's a recommended viewing list.  These will give you enough of a footing in the mythology and characters of the universe.  
The Avengers (2012)

While phase one gives an introduction to all of the main characters, you're able to skip ahead to the first meetup between the heroes.  2012's The Avengers brought the main team together for the first time on the big screen.  It lets you learn who everyone is and gives you a good footing on the world.  If you're in a time crunch, The Avengers is the best plac…

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Non Spoiler Review

Image
It's been 10 years in the making. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been building to Avengers: Infinity War since 2008 when Robert Downey Jr. first suited up in the Iron Man armor. Since then, countless other heroes and villains have been introduced across 18 films. Marvel Studios has managed to do what other companies are trying unsuccessfully to emulate; creating a shared Cinematic Universe.
With Infinity War, the entire Marvel Universe collides in the ultimate battle. Intergalactic baddie, Thanos, is seeking the infinity stones in an effort to balance the universe. The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and other heroes must assemble to try to prevent the death of half of the universe.This is a film that is hard to talk about without getting into spoiler territory so we're going to be intentionally vague.

This movie lives up to the hype. There's a reason why it's the biggest film opening in history. Having earned their wings on Captain America: The Winter Soldier

#vlog 01: The Alice Cooper Show

Image
Time for something completely new for the channel. It's a VLOG! That's right, just what we needed. I wanted to do this to document my son's first ROCK show experience. We took the trip to Greenville, SC to see one of my all time favorite artists, Alice Cooper. I didn't get to see Alice until I was 17 years old. Dominique got him at 8! It was a blast to share this experience with him. What better show for a first than the theatrical awesomeness of Alice Cooper?If you want to see more of these Vlogs, make sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought!

What is the most ICONIC Godzilla To YOU?

Image
I need the community's help on this one.  I'm trying to figure out which version of Godzilla is the definitive version.  As fans, we've all jumped on board during different eras.  To some, the '54 version may be the iconic image that immediately springs to mind when you hear the name Godzilla.  To others, it could be one from the 80's or 90's.  It could also be one of the American versions.  I'm trying to find out which variation is the definitive version that fans think of when thinking of Godzilla.  I hope this makes sense!  
To answer this question, I've created a poll featuring every Godzilla movie (as well as an add your own spot).  Simply pick the movie that contains your ideal mental image of Godzilla.  Don't just pick your favorite movie.  Pick which movie contains that version of Godzilla that's ideal to YOU!  I'll leave the poll up for a week and when all results are tallied, we'll hopefully have an idea of what pops into people…

Thor: Ragnarok (2017) Movie Review

The God of Thunder has returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this weekend's release of Thor: Ragnarok.  This third entry in the Thor series has made some major changes to the Asgardian.  Don't worry, this is a non-spoiler review.  It's safe to read before you've seen the film.  

Overall, this is the best of the film of the Thor franchise.  Director Taika Waititi has crafted something that is both deathly serious and immensely humorous.  The Thor in this film is different from previous incarnations.  While still retaining the almost naive sensibilities from previous MCU entries, his sense of humor really shines here.  We've seen flashes in the past of it, but Chris Hemsworth really lets loose here.  His interactions with Loki, Valkyrie and the Hulk are at times laugh out loud funny.  Humor is definitely the defining trait of this one.  


As seen in the trailers, we're introduced to other Marvel characters for the first time.  The main villain, Hela is more o…
