I have always been a huge fan of the spy genre. The missions are seemingly impossible, the agents are lethal and the gadgets are dangerously cool. Another huge appeal of this genre is that the conflicts are not just physical. In the best spy movies two highly skilled agents from opposing organizations don’t simply outgun one another, but they need to outwit the enemy agent to complete the mission. Usually this adds another layer to the conflict which makes it personal. Here is a list of some of my favorite entertainment produced in this genre. Continue reading
When I first heard that the CW was producing a spinoff of Arrow and The Flash, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. The early information about this potential series was very vague, so I let it slid off my radar. Suddenly, out the blue a trailer drops for this new series… and it looks soooo awesome! Legends of Tomorrow brings an assortment of heroes and villains from the Arrow/Flash universe and put them on one big super powered team, effectively making Legends of Tomorrow the TV version of The Avengers (or Justice League). I believe this is a limited series that will run during the midseason break of Flash/Arrow. A limited series would probably work best with type of show since it would be just enough to time to tell an entertaining story without getting too confused with complexities and subplots like full length shows tend to do.
What do you guys think? Are you excited for yet another superhero show? Leave a comment below!
Growing up I had fond memories of watching TMNT every Saturday morning. When I discovered Nickelodeon brought the turtles back to television it quickly grabbed my attention.

As a fan of comic books and superheroes I was excited to hear that both Marvel and DC/Warner Bros had big plans in the upcoming years to release a slew of new superhero movies. My initial excitement started to fade a bit when I saw the sheer number of superhero content these major studios planned to release. I fear that producing too many comic book movies and shows will diminish the enjoyment of the films. I’m already at the point where I think to myself, “Another superhero movie?”. Nevertheless, it would be a safe bet to say that I’ll be watching every single one. So! Here is a list of all the known DC and Marvel films slates. Continue reading
In classic war movies, there always comes a point when something catastrophic happens and it leaves our protagonist, more often than not a seasoned war veteran, completely traumatized. Broken and scarred, he (or she) is left only with anguish and despair. The camera zooms in as they look to the heavens and shout “What am I fighting for?!”. He (or she) waits desperately for an answer, but there is nothing, only silence. Then Morgan Freeman looks at our protagonist and says, “only you can find answer you seek”. Bam! Instant academy award.
The internet collectively lost it’s shit when the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit the web a while back. I’ve never been a big Star Wars fan, but after the trailer I suddenly craved some Star Wars action. Luckily for me, Netflix just added Star Wars: The Clone Wars to it’s selection of tv. This 3d animated series focuses on the Clone Wars era of the Star Wars universe. Continue reading
One lonely Saturday evening, I decided to hop on Netflix in search of something to hold off my everlasting boredom. Similar to every other Netflix user I had no idea what I wanted to watch.
