Though it wrapped up its run in 2014 with seven seasons, it is still considered one of the […]

Book Review: ‘Dread Nation’ by Justina Ireland

You have never read a book like Justina Ireland’s Dread Nation. No, I’m not reaching by saying this. It is absolutely true. I was mildly apprehensive about reading a YA (Young Adult) book involving zombies and a girl fighting them. See, I’m not wildly crazy about zombies in general. It took me six years to finally start watching The Walking […]

‘Dread Nation’ Live-Action Fancast

This week many African-Americans across the country celebrated the holiday of Juneteenth: the day when the last of the enslaved African-Americans were freed on June 19th, 1865 in Texas after the end of the American Civil War. This holiday has certainly gained more widespread notoriety around the country and, as such, I thought it only fitting to do a live-action […]

‘Fantastic Beasts’ and the Lack of Historical Context

When movies set in significant historic backdrops and periods, I always get a little excited. That is until glaring historical inaccuracies or erasures are presented. Fantastic Beasts and Where to […]

Captain America: The MCU’s Most Idealistic Hero

Steve Rogers didn’t start off as everyone’s favorite Avenger, but through his films and Chris Evans’s amazing performance in the role, it’s hard to find someone who isn’t Team Cap. Steve’s arc through the years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been one of the best. As mentioned in my Iron Man article the juxtaposition between Steve and Tony […]

Breaking Down Iron Man: The Father of the MCU

The character of Tony Stark/Iron Man has gone through so much over the 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU.) He was the one that started it all and the progression of Tony, from his first film to Homecoming feels completely natural and grounded.There is an interesting arc with Tony that can also be compared to Steve Rogers/Captain America.
