Guardians of the Galaxy were a relatively unknown Marvel Comics superhero team a few years ago.

After the success of the 2014 sci-fi space adventure film, it wouldn’t be a surprise if moviegoers could now identify each of the Guardians from seeing only their silhouettes. 

Director James Gunn has been revealing fascinating details on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and answering fan questions on social media.

Deadpool Post-Credits Scene Explained

deadpool-ryan reynolds 20th Century Fox

Deadpool, the subversive superhero movie, is slaying box office records. To put the biggest R-Rated opening weekend in perspective, Deadpool’s domestic gross of $132.7 million from Friday to Sunday ($152.2 million Fri-Mon) handily beats out more established comic book franchises Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($91.6 million).

Deadpool is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” and he lives up to his name by delivering one-line zingers and pop culture references at a rapid fire pace. Just about anything is fair game to Deadpool’s razor-sharp tongue. He’s making funny barbs about Wolverine/Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds himself, many superhero movie tropes and even the movie studios.

How the Walkway Scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens could have been better (even if you love the movie)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Spoilers Discussion Ahead!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is breaking all kinds of records at the box office. It’s not just die-hard Star Wars fans who are giddy about Episode VII, critics love the movie too. The critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes is currently above 90% and The Force Awakens received a Best Picture nomination from the Critics Choice Awards.

This is all not to say that The Force Awakens is immune to criticism. It’s possible to be a fan of a film and at the same time be critical of parts of the movie which aren’t working as well as it could have.

Some believe that there are way too many similarities between The Force Awakens and A New Hope. On the other hand, some appreciate how Episode VII mirrored the original and reenergized the Star Wars universe for a new generation. While others draw the line at the Starkiller base being an unneeded retread of the Death Star.

Personally, The Force Awakens is deserving of a lot of praises yet there is one scene in particular, among a few, that took me out of the movie watching experience. This is the scene towards the end of the movie where Kylo Ren confronts a certain rebel on an open bridge. (Spoilers ahead, final warning)

Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 1 is Off to a Strong Start (Spoiler Free)

Netflix Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 1 “AKA Ladies Night” (Spoiler Free Impressions)

The first season of Daredevil was critically praised, leaving Jessica Jones, the second of four individual Marvel drama series created for Netflix, a lot to live up to. The series premiere is a good indication that it’s tough, no-nonsense heroine can not only hold her own as a lead character but that this series is going to be a dark, engrossing ride.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 3, Episode 2 “Purpose In The Machine” Review

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3, Episode 2 Recap (Spoilers)

“Purpose In The Machine” wasn’t billed as the second part of a two-part premiere but it could have been, which after the mysterious cold open set in 1839 England, picked up where last episode left off with Fitz banging on the alien monolith.

One of the first things that stood out to me is the urgency of this episode. Part of it was the musical score which would fit perfectly in a number of spy movies and partly how the characters are in a constant state of motion. Even a simple dialogue scene would have the agents rushing from one location to another. Another reason for the quick paced feeling is that the premiere set the ground work so that this episode could hit the ground running.

I bring this all up because the show in the past has been criticized, mostly in the first season, for being too stagnant and stretching out mysteries for too long. A 22 episode season is a marathon. There are bound to be some fillers here and there, but “Purpose In The Machine” was anything but a filler. It had a clear end goal: bring Simmons back.
