Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 7

“Havoc in the Hidden Land” The Royal Family return to Attilan and loyalties shift in the penultimate episode of Marvel’s Inhumans. Anyone who has been reading my reviews over the course of the season will know that I’ve found this show to be an exercise in frustration. The only two things keeping me watching are…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 6

“The Gentleman’s Name is Gorgon” Marvel’s Inhumans reunites the entire Royal Family as Maximus feels his hold on Attilan start to slip away. There are only two episodes left in the season after this one and we are finally getting to the point where the entire Royal Family are back together. I wish I could…

Thor: Ragnarok

The God of Thunder goes on a cosmic adventure in an attempt to save Asgard from an Apocalyptic threat in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok. There’s a recurring criticism that comes out when people talk about Marvel Movies. It is often said that the films all follow a slavish house style that doesn’t allow the individual…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 13

“Venom” Peter Parker has to deal with the return of the discarded alien symbiote when it takes a new host in the latest Marvel’s Spider-Man. Venom is such a popular character that he’s bound to eventually appear in pretty much any Spider-Man adaptation. There are obviously exceptions to this but most modern takes on the…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 5

“Something Inhuman This Way Comes” Marvel’s Inhumans finally brings most of the Royal Family back together as Crystal learns what it means to be Human. The past few episodes concentrating on the characters being on their own has been somewhat frustrating. As I’ve repeatedly said they aren’t interesting or sympathetic so waiting for them to…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 12

“Spider-Man on Ice” Marvel’s Spider-Man puts Peter up against an ice based villain after a criminal steels Peter and Harry’s ice gauntlet and uses it for a one man crime wave. This episode is very much a disposable stand-alone outing where Peter Parker does little more than fight a villain. That’s not necessarily a bad…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 4

“Make Way for…Medusa” Marvel’s Inhumans reaches the halfway point and starts to work on reuniting the characters as Maximus moves forward with his plan. I mentioned last week that Medusa was one of the stronger characters in that particular episode. That really isn’t saying much but she did have one genuinely emotionally resonant moment that…

Mavel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 11

“Halloween Moon” Marvel’s Spider-Man takes Peter on a spookier than normal adventure when he encounters a Werewolf on the way to the Horizon Halloween party. An interruption to a “normal” activity has been the opening of so many Spider-Man stories. It works so well because it adds an air of tragic regret to the life…

Marvel’s Spider-Man – Season 1 Episode 10

“Kraven’s Amazing Hunt” Marvel’s Spider-Man puts our hero as the subject of a vicious Reality TV show when Kraven the Hunter sets his sights on the wall crawler as he trains Miles Morales. To its credit this episode wastes no time in getting started. It opens with a fast paced action sequence serving as a…
