Deadpool 2

So Alicia and I loved the first movie for Deadpool and was looking forward to the next release.  This one seems to be about a lot of supporting characters with Deadpool in the center of it all.  We sit down laugh, scream and criticize the part 2 version of his second release of this Deadpool franchise.

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

Being a Marvel fan, and reading some of the later versions of the Marvel comics.  I ran into the Alias series that jumped into realistic problems people go through but just happen to be super powered individuals.   The Alias series centers on the emotionally battered Jessica Jones which Netflix saw some value to make it a series. Here is my take on season 1 and 2 and a little of the Defenders series.

This Netflix original chronicles the life of one of the darker Marvel characters, the mysterious Jessica Jones. When a tragedy puts an end to her short-lived career as a superhero, Jessica settles in New York City and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, which seems to be called into cases involving people who have special abilities. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica wants to do good, but her primary interest isn't in saving the world, it's saving her apartment and getting through each day. Based on a graphic novel intended for adults, this is not a superhero story for the kids

So first I have to say.  OMG!!! Here's our movie review with all the spoilers and heavy breathing while we explain our experience with seeing the new Avengers saga.  So be prepared cause I reference the Comic series Infinity Gauntlet a lot but try to stay on track with the current movie.  Whew.  This was such an emotionally draining action drama.

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet -- the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

Runaways

Alicia and I had an opportunity to check out the Marvel series Runaway that was adapted to TV from the comic book series.  This delightful TV series was refreshing and the writing was a very well adapted.  Marvel has a good series on their hand on Hulu so look out for the next season.

On this podcast I sit down with a talented artist, illustrator and community activist Marcus "The Visual" Williams.  We discuss his independent comics and artwork and how he promotes it to children.  Also we Geek out about the new Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A long time lover of video games, comic art, and all things animated, I’ve dedicated my young artistic years to fine tuning my illustration muscles by way of freelancing. Over fifteen years later, I’m catching my stride and still ever growing in hopes of being a well rounded illustrator.
Stationed in Atlanta Ga, I spend most of my time toiling away late nights on everything from illustrating children’s books, comic art, to random character commissions and more. A proud father of two, I somehow manage to steal enough time to create loads of artwork and check homework. I’m excited about the direction my comic properties are heading in, and I look forward to creating more forms of visual entertainment and stories to enjoy

We start with Black History month and the Black Panther movie. Then we speak to this week senseless shooting in a school and we get into the conversation again with Gun control and mental health.  And the dangers of arming teachers and other nonsense.

Black Panther Movie (Marvel)

 Tonight Alicia and I go out on the premier night of the Black Panther Marvel Movie.  Sitting in the theater, it was a historic feeling and highly enjoyable experience.  Based on the reviews and the many trailers that showed half of the movie.  It was well worth it.

Black Panther The Album

We listen all weekend to the recently released Black Panther Soundtrack and give credit where credit is due. With the mixture of R&B, West coast rap, amazing production.  This is a great addition to the upcoming theatrical release of the Black Panther Movie

Alicia and I sit down and go through or best and worst TV shows of the year. We had some amazing TV series that the streaming services created and we really had a great time binge watching these series.  Unlike the theatrical movie releases, TV really created some serious well worth watching series. Some of these shows were international some were from smaller known creators.besttvshows2017.jpg

Alicia and I sit down and go through or best and worst movies of the year.  This time we have our own list and we talk through what we saw was worth seeing and a few honorable mentions as well.  We think this was a really average year but there was absolutely some gems and trash that came out
