Marvel's Doctor Strange - A Review

Doctor Strange

It the superhero nobody knew anything about prior to this film. Fun fact: did you know his name actually popped up at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, when Hydra wanted to wipe out all good guys?

Logan Film ReviewLogan

OK, so this is not an MCU film, but Logan and all the X-Men are still a part of Marvel. So this film deserves it’s place on this list. Also because it’s just such a bad-ass film.

Spider-Man Homecoming best reviewSpider-Man: Homecoming

Tom Holland is the third Spider-Man in not too long of a time-span and you know what? He’s the best. There, we said it. This reboot is all the fans could ever wish for and more.

Thor Ragnarok reviewThor: Ragnarok

Who knew Thor and his pals could be so funny? Despite the dark undertone of this film, there’s actually a lot of room for comedy and jokes. This is by far the best of the three Thor films.

Is Iron Fist really that bad?Iron Fist

Oh boy. This was such a bad show. After a great Daredevil and Jessica Jones and a pretty decent Luke Cage, this is the let down of the century. Iron Fist and Danny Rand are terrible.

Legion FXLegion

One of the few non-Netflix series out there based on a Marvel character. And Legion certainly is very, very different. It’s also different from pretty much everything else you’ve ever seen.

Luke Cage episodes 1-7Luke Cage

We did a two-parter for this though dude, with reviews on the first half and the second half of the season. It has strong points but also flaws, but it’s pretty decent for a first season.

The Defenders season 1 reviewThe Defenders

The most positive thing about The Defender is that it’s better than Iron Fist. But, sadly, it’s worse than all the other Netflix-Marvel shows. This is not the epic team-up everybody was hoping for.

The PunisherThe Punisher

It’s almost refreshing to see a show about an almost bad-guy with a different morality than most heroes. The Punisher first appeared in Daredevil season 2, and now Frank Castle has his own show.
