So this week I’ve got a few more bits and pieces of things we’ve watched that don’t individually rise to the level of a “Not a Review“, but that, taken together, add up to a post.* This includes a television show and a couple of movies, including one which, astonishingly, my wife not only asked about**, but which she stayed up for in its entirety***.Continue reading “More Odds & Ends From This & That”
A Review of the Not A Review of “WandaVision”
So a few weeks ago I mentioned that my wife had been watching the Disney+ superhero series WandaVision with me. Sadly, this only lasted for the first three-and-a-half episodes; in episode four, the action shifted to what was going on outside of the retro, sometimes black-and-white world of Westview, starting off with … Oh, wait, hang on. For those who haven’t seen Infinity War and Endgame or, for that matter, all of WandaVision:Continue reading “A Review of the Not A Review of “WandaVision””
Not A Review Of “Shazam!”
So recently I watched Shazam!, a documentary about the genesis and production of the classic television comedy Gomer Pyle: USMC. No, just kidding. It’s about
Captain Marvel this guy:
Not a Review of “Spider-Man: Homecoming”
So this week we (mostly me) watched “Spider-Man: Homecoming“, AKA “The One That Does Have Tony Stark In It, But Not Enough Of Him, Despite All The Posters That Make It Look Like He Is A Major Character”.
Random Rejection: Allied Comics
So remember how I said I never throw away anything? Check out this little chestnut:
Not A Review Of “Deadpool”
So this week, we (meaning I) watched “Deadpool“, the (other) superhero movie featuring a foul-mouthed anti-hero who dispenses insults and jokes almost as fast as he kills bad guys.
Not A Review Of “Ant-Man”
So recently we watched “Ant-Man“, in which Jack Colton gives Phoebe’s boyfriend/(spoiler alert)husband Mike a suit that allows him to shrink down to the size of an insect, while Kate glowers disapprovingly. Hilarity ensues.
Not A Review Of “Gotham”
So not long ago, I discovered that the first season of “Gotham” is on Netflix. I discovered this because, unsurprisingly, Netflix put it on my “Recommended” list.
Not A Review Of “Jessica Jones”
What’s this? Two “not a review” posts in a row? Inconceivable! But true. You see, some may remember that a couple of years ago my wife got hooked on
crystal meth “Breaking Bad“, AKA “The Best Show Ever“. It took a while for us to get through all the episodes, after which I was charged with finding my wife another show to watch. Not surprisingly, this turned out to be a pretty tall order. Aside from the six-episode “Happy Valley“, I didn’t have much luck coming up with anything that held her interest.
Review: “The Dark Knight”
I’m sure it won’t surprise anyone to learn that I am (or used to be, anyway) an avid comic book reader. I mostly read Marvel titles, my favorites being Uncanny X-Men, Alpha Flight, and The Avengers. I was a casual reader of D.C. comics (except for Green Lantern, to which I subscribed for a while), reading the occasional Justice League or Batman issue. Therefore, it’s with a somewhat heavy heart that I must say that The Dark Knight is the
