Film Review - Ant-Man and the Wasp (Spoiler Free)

Image
Synopsis (via IMDB):  In the aftermath of Captain America Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he's confronted by Hope Van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.

If you saw the first Ant-Man film back in 2015 then you know what to expect as this movie runs along the same lines. This is a comedy and they are not shy about that, also this story takes place before the events of Infinity War (more on that later). The majority of the story of this film takes place around trying to get Janet Van Dyne out of the Quantum Realm. The movie begins with Scott on house arrest for his part in Civil War and being on the outs with the Pyms because of his actions (damn the Sokovia Accords). To be honest, I …

TV Series - Luke Cage Season 2 Review (Spoiler Free Of Course)

The Hero of Harlem is Back
This season was an interesting one, to say the least. On a personal note, I thought they fixed a lot of the issues from the first season. In this season, Luke is still the defender of Harlem and still trying to find a way to get Mariah and Shades behind bars. Nothing ever goes smoothly in these Marvel/Netflix shows and when a new player comes on the scene that has a vendetta against the Stokes family things get complicated. Mustafa Shakir's portrayal of Bushmaster is amazing. He is one of the best villains Marvel has, period. As the season goes on you really see Bushmaster and Luke as having similar motivations just different ways of going about achieving the goal of getting rid of Mariah. Alfre Woodard does an awesome job as Mariah especially as her arc goes to some interesting places this season. The new cast members do a great job as well, my favorite though is Gabrielle Dennis' portrayal of Tilda Johnson. I am looking forward …

First Impressions - Blazblue Cross Tag Battle

Image
Available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam



As the name implies Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, is tag based fighter from Arc Systems Works and Bandai Namco. It's a tag team fighter in the same vein as Dragonball FighterZ just instead of 3 vs 3 it's 2 vs 2. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of similarities between the two games. Both have simplified commands and both are easy to pick up challenging to master. As for the variety of characters, it appears to be a little heavy on the BlazBlue side and I am not that familiar with In-Birth. That being said though, I like the characters that are assembled for the game. While the game does use a lobby style format in order to access the menus I think it is done pretty good. Everything is easy to get to and easy to find. There is plenty to do in the game. From a visual standpoint, I like it as they use a similar format to FighterZ but one that I think is far more accessible with how easy it is to find everything. There is a D…

TV Review - Voltron Season 6 Review

Image
Available on NetFlix



Season 6 picks up right where 5 leaves off and it is an enjoyable season. By now, I think viewers of the show have grown accustomed to the shortened seasons and this season is only seven episodes long but a lot of questions from previous seasons are answered in this one. By far my favorite episode of the season is Black Paladins. We finally settle on who the leader of Voltron is and how far one goes to save family. Just like last season, there is one filler type episode but its pretty interesting in that this time the team plays a Dungeons & Dragons type tabletop RPG. I have to admit I had grown to like Prince Lotor as I pretty much got played and thought they were going to make him a good guy but boy did they reveal that he was just as bad if not worse than his father. It will be interesting to see where they go in the next season as the season finale does a good job of tying up this story but leaves the door open for a number of other issues. There wasn'…

e3 2018 - Sony Press Conference

Image
Well, that was painful to get through. So if you caught my play by play of the Sony Presser you should know that it pretty much bored me. While the show overall was a letdown there were still a couple of games that piqued my interest. There was also that game that still confuses the hell out of me to the point where I am starting to think that Kojima is trolling people. With that being said check out the trailers for two of the games I that caught my eye.

Ghost of Tsushima

Spider-Man


There you have it folks, Ghost of Tsushima was the game that impressed me the most from their conference. It was nice to see the demo of Spider-Man in action as well as I believe both of these titles will be system sellers in their own right. There is more to come in the next couple of days as Sony has show floor demos scheduled for the rest of the week. Check out their YouTube and Twitch channels if you're interested. What did you think of the Sony conference and what are you looking forward to in the…

Check out the games that caught my eye.
