I’ve said for awhile that is was time for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to get more cosmic and what better way to do it than to bring “The Guardians Of The Galaxy” to the big screen in the teams live-action debut. Check out the poster below and then we can discuss a little deeper.
The Premise: I will not even defer to the film’s Wiki entry because their plot reveals too much for me to share in this new broadcast post but essentially the film features a disparate and rag tag group of unlikely heroes from numerous worlds and species. When Thanos dispatches a dangerous henchman Ronan The Accuser to retrieve an artifact that he needs they band together and realize that they can help protect the galaxy from threats of this kind. The trailers have shown that there is a healthy dose of tongue in cheek comedic lines to be found in the film but I am okay with that since Marvel always did have a sense of humor when it was necessary. I don’t think we will be getting slapstick here so don’t worry. I like what I have seen so far and I really enjoyed the original Guardians team that had Starhawk, Charlie – 27, Martinex and Vance Astro so I am hopeful that this does the task that it is supposed to and expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos where so much more cool stuff awaits its fans. Can Captain Marvel or Adam Warlock be far from making appearances or am I dreaming while typing this narrative for you. Only time will tell. Readers might be interested in learning that while the film is only opening up today is the everywhere sense, they have already confirmed that we shall see a sequel. I think I know where “Avengers 3” will be heading. So let’s take a look at the cast and tell me my friends will you see this film? What are your hopes? Please no spoilers if you have somehow been lucky enough to see it somewhere. Continue reading Opening Today: “Guardians Of The Galaxy” (8/1/2014)→
The fate of Mutantkind’s future lies deep within its past as X-Men of all generations and teams unite for battle in “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” which opens up in theaters everywhere today. I’ve been a fan of the X-Men comics franchise for many years and have so far seen all of the films so this one interests me quite a bit. Check out the official poster and even the teaser one below.
Boy have there been a lot of chances to use the “Movie and TV Mania” category, but I am okay with that because we love to spark you to attention about these shows that interest us and most likely you. This has worked out so far and longer time readers probably realize that I am speaking about the day of broadcasting I’ve done when films that speak directly to our audience demographic are opening up. That being said, tonight is the night for the broadcast television premiere of Josh Whedon’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.”….The acronym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe stands for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division but it was originally Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division back in the early days. Then it got changed in 1991 to Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate until its most recent re-branding. For me as a fan of the organization I feel it works. Do you?
It’s time to spin that web but first a classic song for sure…….
“Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies….Look out! Here comes a Spider-Man. Is he strong listen bud, he’s got radioactive blood. Can he swing, on a thread? Take a look overhead, hey there….there goes a Spider-Man. In the chill of night, at the scene of a crime, like a streak of light he arrives just in time…..Spider-Man, Spider-Man, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man; Wealth and fame. He’s ignored. Action is his reward. To him, life is a great big bang up. Whenever there’s a hang up; You’ll find the Spider man”.

I realize that I have already said something about this but I did want to keep with my still new premise about these kinds of films and offering up a posting series that I plan to have as a standard practice as more and more films of this type come out. With that being said I raise my voice to the top of the possible volume and yell “AVENGERS ASSEMBLE” Whew….
