The X-Men Movies: One Busted Timeline

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

A couple weeks ago, Mashable released a video that attempted to break down the complete timeline of the X-Men film franchise. I thought it would be interesting to see how they pieced everything together and what insights they would have. I went into the video with few, if any, expectations, and ended the video feeling confused and disappointed. Now, I don’t put the blame on Mashable for my confusion because they made a decent attempt at organizing FOX’s busted timeline. I am disappointed with Mashable because they missed an important detail from X-Men: Days of Future Past that seriously screws up their timeline, and the timeline of the X-Men film franchise as a whole.

Quick Thoughts: Civil War v Dawn of Justice

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen! Long time, no posts.

For today’s post, I want to relay a few thoughts I have about this month’s two biggest comic book movies, Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Batman V Superman: Spoilers of Justice

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Originally, I had planned to release a post about Paladins today, but in light of the new Batman V Superman trailer it felt more apt to create a small discussion about that. I saw the trailer on Wednesday, and then saw several review/reaction videos to see how other people thought about it. The internet’s feelings are fairly mixed, but seem to lean more towards the negative. Today, I will add my own opinions of the trailer to the mix whether they are original or not, or shared by others, while attempting to keep the post short.

SPOILER WARNING!!

Ant-Man: Speculation Follow-Up, Thoughts, and Itty-Bitty Review

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Last week, I went to see Marvel’s Ant-Man, and I had a great time. In my previous post, I mentioned I might do a follow-up to the earlier Ant-Man/Age of Ultron speculation post I wrote. So, today, I will begin with said follow-up, do an overview of the theory I concocted, and what ended up happening when I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron. Then, I will discuss my viewing of Ant-Man. Afterwards, I will do a tiny review of the film as it compares to other films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Let us begin! Read the rest of this entry

Stuff, and Things, and New Blog Content!

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

I want to do a quick update post and talk about some stuff, and things, and possible new blog content.

First, Marvel’s Ant-Man came out to theaters last week. I have been pretty hyped to see it for a while now, but after seeing a couple clips from the film I am even more excited to see it. Tonight, I plan to see the film with my girlfriend, and I was thinking of doing a follow-up post to the “Ant-Man Speculation” I did some time ago. There may be some bits of movie review thrown in there, but it is more likely going to be a post focused on my own personal thoughts. Note: I may still be gushing with excitement afterwards.

Next, I am currently working on a small-ish game project using the RPG Maker VX Ace platform. I have wanted to make a game with this software for a while now, but a lot of my main ideas seem to require a lot of preparation. This “small-ish” project will be built using solely the base assets available in the RPG Maker software. I don’t have any concrete ideas set for this project. I am going straight into building it and figuring out all the little details later. I am currently working on the game’s world map. Players will use this feature to traverse the game’s world, while I will be using it to figure out the scope of the game. More details, and possible posts, as progress is made.

Lastly, I want to discuss some content I am preparing for the blog! Since I have been more than lax on adding new content to the blog, I wanted to start work on two, potentially massive, segments that focus on MMORPGs. Both of these segments will be similar to the “Itemization Woes” posts I did a while back, but focusing on the creation of an entire MMORPG instead of just a single facet of gameplay. However, they will tackle this similar subject from two slightly different angles. I will make another post that goes into greater detail about this new, potential content once I figure out exactly how I am going to present them.

So, what have you guys been up to? Have you seen Ant-Man yet? What were your thoughts? Do you have any projects you are working on? I’d like to know! Join the discussion below.

MCU Speculation: Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

Today, we’re going to talk about Ant-Man. I know what you’re probably thinking; there are already numerous other posts discussing the new Ant-Man trailer, the good and the bad, and providing insights about the film that can be extracted from the two-minute trailer. While there are a few bits from the trailer that I enjoyed (mostly the actual Ant-Man action bits), this post will not be discussing the trailer. Instead, I’m going to cover an idea that has been rattling in my head since the casting of Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. The discussion will be about Ant-Man, but how it relates to Avengers: Age of Ultron. Read the rest of this entry
