Biggs On: Wandavision Part II

We’re now six episodes into this series; which means only three episodes remain. I began watching this series with mild interest and now I’m fully committed. I hadn’t intended on writing more about it, however the puzzle in this show is making the discussions fun so I don’t mind writing more on Wandavision. I do not like spoilers so I will provide sufficient warning or redaction when it’s needed. The puzzle is becoming more interesting as well as a lot of the theories I’ve been reading. In fact there are so many theories and ideas I hardly know where to begin. spoiler alert!!! The following [… Click to Continue …]

Biggs On: Wandavision (thus far)

I’m going to take a right turn here and talk about something in the MCU. While I’m not as avid of a Marvel fan as I am a Star Wars fan, both are owned by the same parent company so their fates are partially intertwined. When Disney made the big announcement about all the new Star Wars projects, they also announced several new Marvel projects. Wandavision is the first and, apparently, the series that kicks of Phase Four of the MCU. What Is Wandavision? Honestly I cannot say what it is, yet. I believe the mystery is part of the premise of the show. We [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman 1984 Directed By: Patty Jenkins Starring: Gal Gadot, Kristin Wiig, Pedro Pascal My Rating: While this is my first movie review of 2021, I did not see this movie in 2021. In fact we watched this film on New Years Eve, so technically I saw this movie last year. However since it was a movie we watched in the evening, I did not have time to write up a review before 2020 ended. I think we were all ready for 2020 to be over. The year is 1984 (obviously, by the title) and Diana is still going about her day covertly rescuing people [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Avengers Endgame

Avengers: Endgame Directed By: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo My Rating: Despite the looming “Superhero Burnout“, this movie is crushing it at the box office. It is already breaking the same records The Force Awakens broke four years ago. I fully expect this film to continue to break records set by Star Wars, including top grossing movie of all time in the domestic box office. Honestly, I’m glad it’s a Marvel movie too. In the spirit of the #DontSpoilTheEndgame trend, this is a SPOILER FREE movie review, however if you have not seen Infinity War yet, then consider [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel Directed By: Anna Boden Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson My Rating: A Kree by the name of Vers (Brie Larson) crashes on Earth, circa 1995. She is hunting Skrull who are seeking technology the Kree do not want them to have. Assisting her on her mission is SHIELD agent Nick Fury. During her search she also has flashbacks that seem to be from a previous life. Are these flashbacks key to defeating the Skrull and/or helping her find out who she really is? Biggs’ Review I really enjoyed this movie. I can’t say if it’s the witty writing or the homage to [… Click to Continue …]

RIP Stan Lee and Thank You

Now that we have all had time to process the heartbreaking passing of Stan Lee, it’s time to dedicate a post to his legacy. The image to the right is one of my favorite, of the thousands of memes folks are sharing since his death. The truth in the image is indescribable. Only one other being has ever created a universe as massive and powerful as the one Stan Lee created. He has been inspiring us for 95 years so he was no spring chicken. His passing should come as no surprise, but we grieve the loss of such an extraordinary man. RIP Stan Lee. [… Click to Continue …]
