Yes, both of you. Here’s a new experiment to get me writing a bit again.

Hopefully this works and hopefully you like it. Let’s hop right to it, shall we?
Movies, News / Comments Off on Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ movie has a director
Good news everyone! The Black Widow movie finally has a director.
Movies, Reviews / Comments Off on Review: ‘Ant-Man & The Wasp’ delivers big with small stakes
The first Ant-Man is a good film. Immediately following Avengers: Age of Ultron is was light, funny, full of great performances, and had refreshingly small, personal stakes. Ant-Man & The Wasp continues these traditions: it’s a light, funny movie with some great performances, smaller, more personal stakes, and it immediately followed Avengers: Infinity War which had literal end-of-the-entire-universe stakes. Is this new entry in the Marvel experiment good though? Yes, yes it is! Is it better than the last one? Well… maybe?

Movies, News / Comments Off on Awesome: Marvel is Finally Making a Black Widow Movie
Good news everyone! Marvel is finally developing that movie we’ve all known for years they should probably make!
I really miss the sci-fi movies of my childhood. Big, colourful, often funny, always exhilarating; so much fuel for imaginary spaceship battles around my bedroom. I’m sure much of this comes from older eyes and wearier brains, but I find sci-fi these days to be too bland, too unwilling to risk shapes and ideas. The resurgence of Star Wars has taken big steps back to the fantasy side of sci-fi, and Guardians Of The Galaxy got close with its amazing ship design and snappy script, but I often felt myself seeking more of the fun.
Well, not any more. We’ve known for a while that Thor Ragnarok would be colourful and funny – director Taika Waititi’s What We Do In The Shadows is one of my all-time favourite comedies – but what I was not prepared for was Ragnarok having so much more. Far from being all-out comedy, it’s a meaty, gorgeous slice of sci-fi bliss.

Movies, Posters / Comments Off on Awesome: Nathan Fillion’s Simon Williams movie posters from Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2
Back when Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 was in production the entire internet lit up with excitement when some photos from the set revealed that part of the story was set on Earth, and that on earth there would be a film festival starring Simon Williams, played by Nathan Fillion. Just an easter egg, but it was one that most of us were sad didn’t make it into the final movie. Good news though, now you can see all the movie posters from the Simon Williams Film Festival.
Movies, News / Comments Off on Awesome: Michael Giacchino re-imagines the classic Spider-man theme
Michael Giacchino takes the classic theme and gives it the cinematic treatment. Let’s have a listen.
I finally finished watching the first season of Marvel’s latest Netflix series Iron Fist. Spoiler alert: it is not a good show.
We’re continuing to shake off the dust around here at Awesome Friday HQ, and one easy way to do that is to update the
Marvel Fanboy Marvel Cinematic Universe Rankings. Last year there were two additions to the canon of films, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. Each were good, but where do they fit? Let’s take a look.
Last time I did this I grouped the films into three categories, this time I’m doing a straight up ranking. Feel free to agree or disagree with me. In fact, I encourage it.
Now let’s get to it.
