Hail Hydra? The New Captain America?

So I should open by saying I haven’t read the comic yet. And it’s an issue number 1, so nobody has that much insight into it. But in this week’s newest All New, All Different Marvel Universe title – Steve Rogers: Captain America #1 – we got to see a shocking twist on a 75 year old beloved character!

Kilgrave Hail Hydra

That’s right, Memes-away, it’s Hydra time! This was one of the most interesting things about Captain America: Winter Soldier, I think especially on a first viewing. The role of Hydra in the MCU is massive! It’s crazy! It sprouted a cool meme, it breathed life into Agents of SHIELD (honestly, they’ve been riding that train ever since), it was great. It had shock value, but didn’t change the meaning too much on what had come before – rather, it provided a whole bunch of context.

So let me talk it through, in terms of how it differs from its use in the movies, and then in terms of how it totally makes sense because of the movies.

What’s on Netflix June 2016

Summer is usually a time for Netflix to do a bit of an overhaul to their lineup, or release their new content, which makes sense. School is out, people take vacations, the majority of network shows are on their summer break…it’s a great time to fill some gaps. There’s actually quite a bit coming to Netflix this month, here’s just a few to cover:

The First 3 Jurassic Park Movies

If you’ve never seen at least the first one, watch it when it comes to Netflix June 1st. It’s a classic. The sequels don’t pack quite the same punch as the first, but they are still worth watching at least one. Pop some popcorn and enjoy the incredible T-Rex roars.

Favorite Moments from AvX

Hope encountering the Phoenix Force So in a previous post I talked about how much I enjoyed AvX, but I tried so hard to not do any spoilers because I really enjoyed this cross over event. It spans across so many comics and does such a good job of really crossing over into the different stories.

This post is going to be very spoiler filled because there are some big events that happen, but it is nice that they don’t all happen in one single series. This cross over event is epic and world changing. The Phoenix is a force that cannot be controlled and that alone creates the base for a great and epic story. (Spoilers after the jump. You have been warned.) Continue reading

Game of Thrones Season 6 – Will It Book?

We’re halfway through HBO’s Game of Thrones season 6 – the season that’s gotten ahead of the books. It seems like a good time to check in, about whether things happening are from the books, might be in the books, are totally different from what we think is going to happen in the books…

The way that made sense to me to organize a bit geographically. It feels like all the action is going to one day end up all in one place, but we’re not there yet. And people have moved all over the place from when they almost all started in Winterfell way back when.

Brace yourselves. Spoilers below!

Geek Baby First Movie?

So something David and I will sometimes discuss is what movie do we want to be Geek Baby’s first movie? There are so many things that we want to share with her and movies are part of that list. So much of it though really needs to wait until she is older and while she is not old enough yet she is getting closer. So the question remains what to show as her first movie because there are quite a few to choose from. I am a huge fan of Disney movies, which is a pretty good place to start. Then there are also some Miyazaki movies that are pretty acceptable for a first movie. So here are some things we are considering when looking at Geek Baby’s first movie. Continue reading
