The ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ Chronological Timeline

The ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ Chronological Timeline

MCU_timeline.JPG

The MCU is a constantly moving, constantly turning, evolving, breathing entity of a machine. It’s the grand idea that, after selling their big name franchises (Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four) to other companies, Marvel would be left to make films with all their “lesser” characters, but that they’d do so in a way that fans could see they shared a unique universe. And after a few films (Iron…

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1x17 “Turn, Turn, Turn” (Episode Review)

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1×17 “Turn, Turn, Turn” (Episode Review)

Turnturnturn.JPG

In a surprise twist in the third act, Marvel’s Agents of SH.I.E.L.D. is actually doing incredibly well. It obviously doesn’t have the stunning numbers it did in it’s first few episodes, but in every respect otherwise, the show is excelling. It comes as no surprise that it seems like the entire season has actually been grafted around this episode. When they pitched the initial idea to the Marvel…

Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier has broken April box office records with an impressive $96.2M opening weekend (domestic US), it’s pushed Disney’s MCU all the way up the domestic ladder to land on top. With nine films under their belt, Marvel has officially become the highest grossing film franchise of all time with a cumulative gross of $2.46 billion. It beats out the previous record…

Did You Know? You Can Find Gandalf’s Sword in Game of Thrones

Did You Know? You Can Find Gandalf’s Sword in Game of Thrones

Glamdring.JPG

To mark the return of HBO’s hit series I thought I might share a little something cool and pointless your way. Remember that little fantasy film series they made in the early 2000s? What was it called again… Oh! The Lord of the Rings!? Yeah! Well, you might find it of intrigue to note that Gandalf’s very own blade ‘Glamdring’ sits proud and tall upon Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne. A reddit user…

The 100: 1x03 “Earth Kills” (EPISODE REVIEW)

The 100: 1×03 “Earth Kills” (EPISODE REVIEW)

Surprising everyone, this show continues to get better and better. Although not emotionally attached to the characters and storyline yet, the episode does an extremely well job to engage even distracted viewers. While I was watching ‘Earth Kills’ my family was passing in and out of the room (annoying, yes), but occasionally they’d have to stop and watch because it just held a certain amount of…
