Captain Marvel (2019) – Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck

It took a decade, but this week Marvel brings us their first female led superhero film. Giving us a quick respite before diving into Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel brings us a unique Marvel movie, and not just because it has a female as the lead. Captain Marvel is irreverent, playful, and puts a new spin…

The Adventures of Indiana Jones (1992/1993) – Spring Break Adventure

Sean Patrick Flanery takes over the role of Indiana Jones from Corey Carrier this week with this television movie that first aired on 17 October, 1999. Cobbled together from two episodes, Princeton February, 1916 and Mexico March 1916, Flanery proves himself suitable to the role, and the stories take on a depth that was missing…

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) – Steven Spielberg

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles brings me another Spielberg film to cover that I previously hadn’t for the blog. A.I. This one proved to be a very divisive film for a lot of viewers, originally planned to be a Stanley Kubrick film a lot of film fans believe that Spielberg over-sentimentalizes it and makes it a…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E08 – The Well

Now this is what I’m talking about! Jonathan Frakes directs this week’s episode which comes in as my favorite of the series following the pilot. This week’s episode, The Well, takes place during the clean-up following the events of Thor: The Dark World (which admittedly I still have to get out and see), so our…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E07 – The Hub

This week’s episode was definitely stronger than last week’s, and I love the little pieces of character revelations and development we’re getting. I also had a nice little geek moment when The Triskelion got mentioned while our team was visiting The Hub, a SHIELD operations center, run by Agent Victoria Hand (Saffron Burrows). While there,…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E06 – F.Z.Z.T.

I got to catch up on SHIELD this weekend. After a week off, the series was back, in what I felt was a mediocre episode, and I hate to think that they may have lost some of the momentum they were building up. There were individual story threads that I quite enjoyed, but overall the…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E05 – Girl in the Flower Dress

The other show I had to catch up on after Toronto After Dark was this week’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., and as demonstrated from week to week, the stories and character continue to get stronger and more enjoyable. This week, we learn a little bit more about Skye (Chloe Bennet), though we’re still left on the…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E04 Eye-Spy

This week’s episode, scripted by Jeffrey Bell, who’s writing credits include Angel, Alias and The X-Files, is the strongest episode of the series so far. It seems to be improving every week, so my hopes are starting to climb for the rest of the season. Directed by Star Trek alumni Roxann Dawson (who played Torres…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E03 – The Asset

Ok, this one was stronger than last week’s ep, and we’re still seeing the team coalesce. I’m hoping we’re almost at the point where that happens and storylines can get big and epic, our characters can grow and change, and we’ll get to explore a little bit more of the Marvel Universe, as opposed to getting…

Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S01E01 – Pilot

Joss Whedon returns to the small screen while expanding the universe he got to join and play in with The Avengers. As a pilot, the episode is well-crafted, introducing all the characters, both primary and secondary, giving us broad strokes of who they are, and the dynamic and role they’ll fill on the show. Set…

Tim’s Top 12 of 2012

12 is my lucky number, so I figured that would be the number of films I pick for my favorites of 2012, it kind of works, because then that would be one each month, though, for anyone who reads my blog, you’re well aware that I’ve seen a lot more than 12 movies this year!…

TIFF 2012: Much Ado About Nothing – Joss Whedon

  The announcement of this little flick’s arrival at TIFF this year caused quite a stir amongst many people I know.  Even I was curious as to what Whedon would have in store for us with this one, since I knew it was something he’d wanted to do for a long time, and that he’d…
