Captain Marvel - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum, 16 March 2019 · 92 views
Movies
Marvel has a knack for making superhero movies. And by knack, I mean they've pretty-much got it figured out. Of course, when you think about it, they probably should by now. But nothing is a given.
 
I should note here I'm talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies, not Marvel movies made by Sony or 20th Century Fox. Those have been,...


Sloggin' through Sweden, Mixing it up in Mexico

Cars
Usually, I post one WRC blog entry for the season, then just add comments for each subsequent rally.
 
But since I had already named this year's entry after the first rally in Monte Carlo, I thought I'd post new entries for each of the other rallies too (or every other rally... or every third rally...).
 
Rally Sweden was a bit of a disappointm...


Blog Title: Do I Have To Do This All Over Again?

Peter Tork passed away last week at the all-too-young age of 77.
 
I didn't used to think 77 was young. But the older I get, and the more people I know who live and live well in their 80's and even 90's, 77 seems too young.
 
Peter played the bass player on the TV show The Monkees (returning soon to MeTV ). Peter also played bass in the band T...





Monte-Carlo's Flying Circus

Cars
The 2019 WRC (World Rally Championship) kicked off in Monte-Carlo this weekend , and the new season pretty-much picked up where last year left off: Sebastien Ogier just barely beat Thierry Neuville for the win, even though Ott Tänak was the fastest car on the road all weekend. Tänak was effectively out of the running due to a tire puncture earl...

Okay, everybody sing the theme song !
 
Aquaman, Aquaman,
Does whatever a tuna can.
Swims around, talks to fish
When he walks, his feet squish
Look out! Here's comes the Aquaman!
 
Is he strong? Probably
But he has to swim through fish pee
Can he ride a seahorse?
No he can't, they're too small.
Hey there – There goes the Aquaman...


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - Spoiler-free review

Animation, Movies
When I first heard Sony was making an animated Spider-Man film, my first thought was, "Ugh. Really? Have they learned nothing from their past failures with Spider-Man? Why can't they just leave creative control of the character to Marvel, and take whatever money Marvel gives them?"
 
Then, when I heard it would feature the Miles Morales version of t...


Ralph Breaks the Internet - Spoiler-free review

Animation, Movies
I'm not even sure Ralph Breaks the Internet is still in theaters. I saw this back in November, but only now have had the time to write up a short review for it. Actually, I've got three movies to write reviews for, hence the need to keep them all short.
 
What do you mean, you'll "believe it when you see it"? I don't always write needlessly long-w...
