Toy Review – Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege from Hasbro

Last week I wrote about my history with Hasbro’s Transformers franchise. That post started off as a review of the newest line of toys from that franchise – War for Cybertron: Siege. I like to open toy reviews with a bit of my personal history with what I’m reviewing, but sometimes if I haven’t written a whole lot about what I’m reviewing it turns into more than an intro.

So now that I’ve gotten that history out of the way, I can explain how I ended up collecting Transformers again after quitting (several times) and I can also review some toys. Continue reading “Toy Review – Transformers War for Cybertron: Siege from Hasbro”

I Accidentally Read Star Wars Books For Kids

(I had assumed this would easily all fit into one post. Once I got to 1,000 words without even having spoken about the book series I was planning on writing about I decided to make this a two-parter. If it takes me five hours to write it’ll probably take you two hours to read. I don’t know too many people who want to read 3,000+ words about Star Wars books in one sitting. If you are one of those people I apologize, and feel your pain. “Too long, didn’t read” is the worst thing you can say to someone who busted their ass writing something so I try to edit myself when necessary.

Movie Review – 16 Thoughts About Captain Marvel

SPOILER WARNING – THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR DISNEY’S NEW FILM CAPTAIN MARVEL

SPECIAL ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER – I went in to this movie purely as a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Aside from what I’ve absorbed as a regular comic book reader over the years, this Captain Marvel, the Kree, Skrulls, and… the other major alien species… aren’t my area of expertise.

Captain Marvel is kind of a big deal.

Not only is its hero, Carol Danvers, being positioned as a major part of the future of the multi-billion dollar MCU franchise, the film itself is serving as something of a bridge between the finality of Avengers: Infinity War and the impending rebirth that the upcoming Endgame represents.

Additionally, it has the cultural weight of being the MCU’s first female-led film. There is a lot of baggage that goes along with this. Some of it is good and some of it is bad, but all of it is irrelevant to whether or not this is a good movie. Hopefully most of you know me well enough by now to know that that’s all I care about. I won’t be getting into any of the issues that simple-minded morons might have with Brie Larson or with shitbag websites that use exploitative headlines to generate pageviews with no regard for facts or nuance.

So with all of that being said, was Captain Marvel a good movie? Read on and find out! Continue reading “Movie Review – 16 Thoughts About Captain Marvel”
