And We’re Back With the Civil War, Apocalypse, and Everything Beyond [NerdGirlCorner]

Hi-Dee-Ho, folks!

I’ve been MIA for quite some time taking care of a few life changes, but now that most of them are squared away, I’m back — and with perfect timing too because a crap ton of trailers are out and I’m in my nerd girl feelings!

First up, we have the Captain America: Civil War trailer.

Psylocke Comes to the Big Screen, Ant-Man’s Big Little Trailer, and DareDevil’s Golden — Nerd Girl Corner

Hey there, devotees!

It’s been a month since my last post (forgive the delay), but I’m back with a new entry and it’s chock full of nerdy goodness. The headline barely covers the amount of ‘ish that I’ve been in my feelings about, but I’ll try my best to get through it all as quickly as possible.

First up in NGC news: Newsroom star and super geek girl Olivia Munn is set to portray Elizabeth “Besty” Braddock aka Psylocke in the new X-Men: Apocalypse movie.

psylockecollageSo why is this a big deal to me? Well, for starters, Psylocke was always my favorite character to play in the Capcom video games back in the day and then again in  X-Men Mutant Academy 2 for PlayStation. Next, I always loved the look of the character, even though the only incarnation I knew of her was of the Japanese assassin. And lastly, when I did finally dabble into the world of comics, it was with the Uncanny X-Men featuring Psylocke.

I must admit, however, I didn’t keep up with the comics, but I still maintained a soft spot in my heart for her. Also doesn’t hurt that she has purple hair and I did desperately wanted to streak my hair purple in high school. Yes, it was a phase, but I eventually got over it (not really).

Anyway, I’m excited to know she’s going to be portrayed by Ms Olivia, who was the chick I wanted to be at San Diego Comic Con’s coverage on G4. She knew her stuff when chatting with guests, looked like she was having a great time, and could hang with the rest of the “nerds,” while still flicking her fabulous hair. She’s also of Asian ancestry, which I think it a good look on Marvel’s part to get someone who many won’t question (too much) with regards to cultural relevance.

Moving on…

Mavel’s Daredevil is on Netflix!

Marvel’s Daredevil Season 1 officially released its 13 episodes for screening on April 10. Like most people, I kicked myself for not taking the day off from work to sit at home and binge watch them all, but I was able to sneak in one episode during the day, and I have to say, the premiere episode was interesting. If it’s one thing that got me, it was the fight choreography. My first reaction to it all was “I really like this fight choreography.” Then, when I got home, I watched the second episode (while live tweeting with Black Girl Nerds) and I really fell in love with the fight scenes. They were visceral and real. When homeboy got punched in the face, he took the punch, and when he gave them, he dolled them out, but not without showing just how much energy he exerted in the act. I like a fight that looks like a real fight in movies.

I decided that I was going to pace myself, and watch only two episodes a week, but I missed the bar (this week and last week), and am several episodes behind. Nevertheless, I will get around to watching the rest of the episodes in due course, savoring every fight — which I’m told gets better with every episode — and I’m so happy to announce that the show’s been renewed for Season 2! Sucky part? The show’s coming with new showrunners (*hiss*). Cross your fingers that they keep the momentum going ’cause this show has the makings to be something pretty great.

Oh, Charlie Cox aka Matt “Daredevil” Murddock gets honorable mention in this post for being a much better DD than Ben Affleck. Sorry, but search your feelings. You know it to be true.

And last but not least…

The trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice finally dropped. Go ahead, check it out if you haven’t already.

 

It starts out with news reporters, telecasters, and the like talking about Superman’s power and you, there are those who idolize him, and then those who loathe him. You know, the usual reaction foreign entities get when people are aware of their presence. Holly Hunter’s voice is clearly audible, which makes me a little happy to know that she’s going to be involved in this movie. Anyway, there’s a shot to a giant Superman statue which somehow has “False God” painted on it. (Note: who the hell got up there to right that in the FIRST DAMN PLACE?)

Next thing you know, Scar Jeremy Iron’s voice is heard talking about “that’s how it starts, the anger, the powerlessness” and we get a shot of Ben Affleck (aka Bruce Wayne) looking at his ol’ Batman suit. I’m guessing he’s put the cape away for a bit, but thanks to Superman causing villains and nimrod civilians to catch their feelings, he feels it’s about time to venture back into the night and fight crime. But lo! It’s not crime Batsy is after —it’s Superman! And with all the high-tech planes and cars from the The Dark Knight movies — oh, and an auto-tuning helmet, Batman comes after the sexy Henry Cavill — uh, I mean Superman, and the two appear to square off.

Now, I will not lie to you guys: I do not know the comic book history behind movie’s plot. I’ve seen a couple of DC animated films and this reminds me of Justice League: War, where all the superheroes kind of fight each other until they find a common enemy and then battle that. I’m going to hypothesize that this film is going along that route, especially since a Justice League movie is in the works, and several of the JL characters are going to be making cameos.

My thoughts thus far? I’m going to give it a chance. I shall admit, I’m not a fan of the whole “Batfleck” deal just because I didn’t like Ben as Daredevil. But, many people thought Ryan Reynolds sucked as Green Lantern and now he’s getting tons of love for Marvel’s Deadpool. So maybe the transitional magic will work for Ben shifting from Marvel to DC… I don’t know. I just hope his helmet isn’t set to auto-tune all the time. I get that maybe he’s supposed to be an older version of The Dark Knight‘s Christina Bale, but his voice was annoying enough and this mechanical version of it is not doing it for me.

Before I sign off on this post, I did need to give a condensed geeking to a couple other pieces of news that broke in the weeks that I’ve been gone. Brace yourselves because some of this is just pure awesome:

  1. Finally, I’ve got some exciting news regarding the Suicide Squad movie: Jared Leto is officially the prettiest ugly Joker out there! Director Dave Ayers posted the first official look of Jared as Mr. J for the 75th anniversary of the character and I DIG IT.

    I was weary that he was going to be too pretty, but he’s got this pretty ugly thing and I can only imagine where he’s going to go with the role. I also can’t wait to see his interaction with Margo Robbie who plays Harley Quin. Bottom line, I approve.

  2. Is it time to pour one out for the homies? Word around town is that Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino have parted creative ways after working together for 10 years. Hypable reports that are their recent art show, where they give us that beautiful pic of Korra and Asami in the spirit world together, the duo announced that they were parting ways.
    I’m not sure if this report should be taken seriously — since no other outlet that covers ATLA and LOK has covered the news, nor has “Bryke” taken to the internets to confirm such split, but Hypable said the creators claimed they were “tired”, “burnt out”, and seeking to do other projects, but they were ultimately open to joining forces again in the future.
  3. The Ant-Man trailer dropped. And as much as I love Paul Rudd, I have a feeling this movie will be one of Marvel’s lowest-performing films. Don’t get me wrong — it’ll make a good chunk of change. And there may even be some solid acting and fight scenes, but I don’t foresee a ton of people rushing to the theaters to see it. After watching some Avenger cartoons on Netflix, I’ve grown a bit of appreciation for Ant-Man, but it also left me curious as to why Marvel decided to introduce the superhero with this new incarnation that’s not Hank Pym. In the film, Hank is played by the elderly Michael Douglass. If Hank and Tony Stark created Ultron, why isn’t Hank Ant-Man? Ugh, I’m not even going to try to understand that. Anyway, here’s the trailer:
  4. Archangel has also been cast for the X-Men: Apocalypse movie in the form of actor Ben Hardy (of East Enders).

    Director Bryan Singer also released images of what Archangel will look like this time around since, you know, he’s going to be one of the Four Horseman of Apocalypse.
    ArchAngelshiny…

  5. Speaking of X-Men, it looks like one X-Men we spoke in length about isn’t going to be showing his face in X-Men: Apocalypse after all! In a recent interview with MTV, Channing Tatum broke the news that it was a possibility his Gambit was going to first hit the screen in a solo film. Channing dished, “You know, I don’t know if I’m at liberty to say, but I don’t think I want to introduce Gambit until you can really explain who Gambit is.” Looks like we’ve gotten ourselves about two years before we finally meet Chambit, which should be well enough time for Channing to get that Cajun accent down… along with any other shortcomings people were weary of.

That’s all the nerding out I’ll do this time around. I did want to give a Season 1 exit review for some pilots, but since I stopped watching several of the shows I was geeking over… I’m going to have to go time some time, finish a couple shows, and then come back.

Until then, keep geeking folks and always, drop a line in the comments or hit me up on le Twitter!

Legend of Korra Season 4, Episode 8: “Remembrances” Post-Cap — Nerd Girl Corner

Hey there, Korra Nation! As many of you know, The Legend of Korra Book 4: Balance aired its newest episode, “Remembrances” on November 21st. As promised, I’ve written a recap (which can be found on Black Girl Nerds) in case you haven’t checked it out yet, but now it’s time for this week’s post-cap!

By now, you guys should know what a “post-cap” is. But in case you don’t, it’s a make-believe term I created that by definition is mixed of thoughts, feelings, etc. that one may have after reading (in my case, writing) a recap. Hence, “post-cap”. I know I could as easily call my post-cap a “review,” but I like to do things my way. Got it? Good.

Why Legend of Korra Season 3 Is Its Best Season So Far — Nerd Girl Corner

20120505230717!The_Legend_of_Korra_opening_logoThe finale of Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra, Book 3: Change is officially online, and it quite possibly synched this season as being its best Season thus far and possibly in the entire franchise.

I will be the first person to admit, that Legend of Korra Book 2: Spirits (Season 2) left me seemingly underwhelmed, but this latest season has definitely raised the bar by meeting quite a few of my expectations and exceeding a few others. Let’s dig in:

Note: This article is filled with tons of spoilery goodness. Please read at your own discretion… or hop on to Black Girl Nerds for my spoiler-free version. 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Korra’s screw up at the end of Season 2, which ultimately had me feeling like she was the world’s worst Avatar ever, actually made the perfect intro to what would be a great Season 3. Korra decision to let the spirits roam free has caused major infrastructure damage to Republic City, which has caused the President of RC to think of Korra as a nuisance. Her attempts are rectifying the problem are a lost cause and because she’s unable to call on her past Avatar lives for help, she’s officially screwed. In addition, the harmonic convergence led to one of this Season’s villain’s, the philosopher Zaheer, to become an air bender and he uses his new talent to its fullest extent to make for a sexy breakout.

Speaking of Zaheer’s breakout, one of the best things Book 3 has offered has been the insane bending. The breakout scenes for Ghazan (the lava-bending earth bender), Ming-Hua (the double-amputee water bender), P’Li (the combustion fire bender), and Zaheer were impeccable — between the matter in which they were imprisoned, to their manner of escape, this Season was a feast for the eyes.

Another beautiful theme that made this season better than the others, has to be the resurgence of  the core of the original Avatar. We got to see Team Avatar (Mako, Bolin, Korra, Asami, Tenzin, and Lin Beifong) travel to new locales across their fantastical world, helping others along the way, which brought back an essence that was lost in both Season 1 (Book: Air) and Season 2 (Book 2: Spirits) and made the show all the better for it. With Team Avatar’s travels, there were more complex battles to be won, and its these struggles are what gives Season 3 its edge.

Where as in Book 1: Air, the big bad was Amon, and “Spirits” the villain was Korra’s uncle, Unalaq, this season we had more than one forces working against Korra. The new ruler of the Earth Kingdom, the Earth Queen, is no friend to the Avatar and deems her an enemy against the state when Korra frees the air benders from her corrupt clutches. Additionally, Korra has to combat the newly-reformed Red Lotus, whose plan of anarchy looks like a harrowing reality in part to their ruthless methods. Reestablishing the air nomad society is another problem within itself — one that Korra tries to tackle and ultimately hands off to Tenzin — oh, and then there’s Korra’s inability to know what to do because, well, she has no real spiritual guidance.

Aside from the over-arching difficulties, there are the personal ones. Coupled with Korra’s problems, are Lin’s strained relationship with her sister, Suyin, Tenzin’s determination to make the air nomads great again, and Bolin’s need to unlock his untapped potential. The way in which each character handles their own internal struggle makes for great character development, and their interaction with the new (and old) characters this season makes the story even more rich.While the Red Lotus were clearly the villains to beat this season, they were somehow likable. The manner in which they attacked each of there fights against Team Avatar was amazing, and you couldn’t help but be astonished at their sheer determination and tact. Asami and Korra’s budding friendship does wonders for the feminine prowess on the show, and Jinora’s budding romance for street urchin-turned-air bender Kai brings a little light-heartedness to the intense situation.

With the light, comes the dark and this Season’s biggest edge over the others has to be its more adult themes and dark tones. The season touched on various political ideals, including the Red Lotus’s anarchist agenda to restore true balance to the world. In order to achieve their goal, the Red Lotus would have to snuff out the world leaders, including the Avatar, and in one scene we see them do just that. This is probably the first time we’d ever seen an on-screen murder on the show, and the manner in which it was done was both chilling and spellbinding.

But what ultimately synched Season 3 as the best Season of the franchise has the be the bitter-sweet two-episode Season 3 finale (“Enter the Void”/”Venom of the Red Lotus”). After Tenzin endures a cruel beating by the Red Lotus, most of the hope is lost by our Team Avatar, even after they create a bonafide plan to recapture the air nomads out of the Red Lotus’ possession and take down the crew. It’s at this point, that much like the epic four-part series finale of Avatar (Book 3: Fire, “Sozin’s Comet”), each of the members of Team Avatar squares off with the Red Lotus in a do-or-die battle. Relationships are mended, untapped potential is realized, there’s bending galore, another gruesome on-screen death, and Team Avatar makes out in the last second, but there are dire repercussions that make the show more human than it has ever been before. Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel, but for some of the characters, there’s tons of lingering doubt.

Whereas last season, when I watched each new episode out of routine, this season I watched longing to know what was going to happen next, and literally putting my hands over my eyes for fear that Korra and her team were going to fall ten steps back. This time there was an added element to it that made it all worth my incessant fangirling over the trailer worth every second of it. I wanted to cry. In the same way that I wanted to cry when watching Avatar come to an end, but this time, it was different. The aftermath touched me to the core as there was much to rejoice over as much as there was much to be uncertain of. I felt invested in Korra. She had redeemed herself in more ways that one and for the first time since ever seeing Korra, I wanted to thank her for doing her best.

My only gripe would have to be the fact that we didn’t get more of a backstory for the members of the Red Lotus, but for their short tenure, they definitely left their mark.

It wouldn’t be fair to me to leave out the artwork and artistry in writing as a contributing factor to this season, so I must add that all of it accounted for this season being great. For that, I thank creators, Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko for really pushing the envelope this season. I commend them, thank them for making riveting animated TV, and its my sincerest hope that they continue to astound us again on Legend of Korra Book 4.

My Brain Scratching Affair With Disney Movies Presents: Cinderella (VII)

As I’ve previously written in the first installment of this series-long ‘editorial’ (if you will), the following posts are created to air out more or less, ‘adult’ grievances and flush out underlying (as well as obvious) themes that I’ve found while watching these childhood movies over again.

*Please Note: I do not ‘blame’ Disney for any of my findings, as these are films based on very old fairy tales, however, as Disney animated them I will continue to say ‘Disney’ as a reference. **Also, not all cartoons animations of childhood fairy tales were the brain child of Disney, so I will attribute the production companies accordingly.*

After a very long break, I’ve decided to return to my wonderful franchise with the ever-shallow Disney flick, Cinderella.

4047cinderella

 

So the first question I had, after looking back at the film, was why didn’t Cinderella’s dad have a will? For a man who cared sooo much for his little girl — and had to endure the death of his own first wife — how could be be so careless? Yes, I can grasp the fact that maybe life insurance policies didn’t exist, but the WILL has been around since the dawn of time. What would’ve happened if Daddy Rella died  before he married Lady “Bitch Face” Tremaine? Cindy would’ve just became a penniless ward of the state. Daddy missed the ball on that one.

Next, Cinderella was better than most children, because I couldn’t understand how she could stand years of mental and physical abuse. I mean, first she got kicked out of her nice room — and we still don’t know what it was turned into — forced to live in an attic, and then do ALL the housework?  She didn’t have a third cousin on her mother’s side to run away to? If I were Cindy, the first thing I would’ve done was moved out of the place and moved in with a close friend of the family or something. Make a living out of cleaning and singing and do the damn thing.

Third, who the hell is Lady Tremaine’s baby daddy?

 

I love how every single Cinderella movie leaves out any kind of back story of her previous husband/baby daddy. Did he divorce her? Was he even a Lord to give her a lady title? Did she kill him for the money and then moved on to her next target?

And just how did Cinderella’s pops died?

I smell foul play — especially from Lady “Bitch Face” Tremaine.

Also,  why was it that the ONLY animals that could coherently talk in Cinderella were the mice? We can understand everything they say, but Bruno was left to grunt and growl like a regular dog, the birds had to chirp their words, Lucifer meowed, etc. Did Disney just run out of money to hire actors to speak for them?

And what about all this baby fever the King had?

If he wanted a baby around so much, why didn’t he just remarry (what the hell happened to his wife in the first place? Disney and these damn “dead wives”!) and have a baby of his own. He was freaking KING. He definitely could’ve done that. His eldest son still would’ve been his successor and when he croaked, he could leave his new wife to raise to new prince/ss.

Oh, and please let’s not get me started with the fact that Anastasia and Drizella were so ugly, they couldn’t have even been drawn to look like humans…

They look like straight cartoon characters — no bust, half-moon eyebrows, the works. Furthermore, their dad must’ve been one unattractive dude to produce THOSE faces. That’s probably why Bitch Face killed him. #ISaidIt Side note: who names their child “Drizella”? You know what, let me leave that alone because people name their children worse…

Another thing that killed me was Cinderella’s shoe being able to fit only HER foot.  You mean to tell me, that not one OTHER person in that entire kingdom was a size 4 1/2?!

Furthermore, who the eff uses a shoe as a means for identification?! Like come on, the prince can’t be that dumb. Why didn’t he round up all the blondes in the kingdom between 5′ and 5’5″ and then work from there? So you mean to say if a red-head or a girl with a pixie cut fit the shoe, then that was the girl from the ball? If I was Cinderella, I would’ve been offended. This dude thought she was SO beautiful, but couldn’t remember her features enough to have a sketch artist draw a photo so he can send his goons out to search for her. Laziness… and straight disrespectful.

Now here we go with the thematic portion of today’s head scratcher:

Theme One: You Need to Know Who You’re Marrying

Cinderella’s dad made the ULTIMATE mistake when he didn’t check who the hell he was marrying before bringing Lady BF Tremaine into his house with her two fugly children. Yeah, he thought he was bringing in mother figure for his daughter, and thought she’d be compassionate because she has kids of her own. Yeah, NO! This is a culture of #TeamMe and he should’ve known better to think that that woman would ever consider Cindy as a part of her family. Furthermore, Cinderella should’ve probably thought twice about marrying Prince Charming. If he couldn’t even remember what she looked like, can you imagine what else you would forget? Can you imagine if Cinderella went missing? He would probably have to give the guards her shoe to place on all the dead bodies in the kingdom to see if she was dead too.

Theme Two: Parents Need to Invest in Life Insurance

I know for a fact my own mother is scared poopless of the term life insurance because it really should be called “in case of death” insurance. But guess what? When you have children, and early deaths run in the family, your behind needs to make sure you have something saved away for your kids’ future. If Cindy’s dad thought more about making sure she was taken care of and less about bringing another female into his house, he would’ve written a will saying that Cindy got EVERYTHING and that Lady T was only there to supervise until Cindy got to marrying age. Then, Lady T could marry her off to the first thing that batted his eyes at Cindy and then she could’ve paid that dowry off, sell the house, and found herself an even richer man… to later kill and inherit his fortunes.

Theme Three: Slave Labor Can Exist in Your Own Home

Cinderella basically ran that house — cleaning, cooking, window washing, tending to the animals, etc. with no pay, no guarantee to her home, nothing. Basically for free. Out of the goodness of her heart, but more so because she was abused. In the beginning of the movie the say that she was treated terrible and humiliated, which means to me they probably broke her like a slave. Yup. Cindy was a slave in her own home. The only thing missing in a cotton field and a whip in Bitch Face’s hand.

Theme Four: Mice Are Still Creepy Ass Pets

I was never a person for mice as pets. They’re small, they get into everything, they breed quickly, they carry diseases, they eat everything… they’re just kinda gross. And the fact that they SPOKE in this movie creeped me out even further and resolved me to the notion that they’re just creepy ass animals.

 

Theme Five: Make Sure You’re Really Over Your Clothes Before You Throw Them Away

One of the scenes that really disturbed me in this movie was the scene where Anastasia and Drizella ripped apart Cinderella’s dress that used a COUPLE scraps from the sisters’ old clothes. I don’t know about you, but it always made me feel dirty… almost like a rape scene. I almost thought they were going to leave her naked on the floor with Bitch Face smiling in the corner. But this just makes my point that you should always make sure you’re really ready to throw your clothes away before you do. These girls really weren’t over their items like they thought they were — or maybe they were just jealous it looked nicer on Cindy than on them. Either way, they weren’t down with Cindy’s rat and bird friends upcycling their scraps to make her a half-way decent dress. So, before you dump away your old clothes, make sure you’re really over them. You never know what gems you could be missing.

Theme Six: Godparents Can Be Really Great in a Pinch

If it wasn’t for Cinderella’s fairy godmother, she probably would’ve just offed herself in that fountain when those skeezers ripped up her dress. But Ms. Bibbity Boppity Boo came and gave her a new dress, pumps, a fresh hairdo, and transportation, and that really made me appreciate having god parents. They’re purpose is to basically help the child when the parent can’t and in this case, Cindy needed all the help she could get. So make sure to show your god parents tons of love. You never know when you’d need them to spot your five bucks for cab fare.

 

Theme Seven: Don’t Let a Man Get You Sprung

If it wasn’t for Cinderella acting all sprung about the Prince when she heard he was looking for her, she probably could’ve avoided that whole being locked in her room waiting for the mice to save the day thing. But her head was so far up in the clouds, she didn’t have enough sense to play it cool and strategize getting out of her in-house slavery. That’s a lesson to you ladies — don’t get so hung up on a man, that you lose all sense and reason and then find yourselves in trouble you could’ve easily avoided.

Theme Eight: Be Nice to Everyone Because You Never Know When They’ll Be Rich Enough to Help You

One, if not the BIGGEST lessons learned from Cinderella is the idea that you should always be nice to people, no matter how much you really dislike them. Hear me out: Cinderella had a beautiful voice, right? If Lady Tremaine had invested money into Cindy being musical, she would’ve had the best singer of the kingdom bringing in suitors (and their money) into that house. As a matter of fact, if Bitch Face treated Cinderella with an OUNCE of niceness, got Cindy a dress for the ball, and let the prince play with her feet, then Cinderella just might have moved the whole damn family into the castle. Instead, she wanted to be a stingy prude. And what did it get her in the end? An old rickety house and two daughters no one wants to marry. Boom.

Theme Nine: No One Likes a Nasty Pussy

I will end this post with the most gratifying scene in this entire movie — Lucifer the Cat’s death. That was the nastiest cat I’d ever seen in my life and I genuinely hated him. When he fell from the tower of the house to his horrific death, I was happy. Pleasantly happy. He caused trouble for Cinderella, he tried to eat her mice friends, he got Bruno in trouble. He was just Damien re-incarnated into a cat. And no one like a nasty cat. Now, if you want to take that heading to mean something else, you can very well do so because I’m all for double entendres and in this movie, it definitely applies.

Review: Complete Review of “The Last Airbender Movie

Well, seeing as this is suppose to be some kind of portfolio/ outlet for my literary work, how about some op-ed review like articles?

The following are links to a three-part note that I originally wrote on Facebook about “The Last Airbender” Movie, directed by M. Night Shamalan. I thoroughly investigated for this piece because it was about the re-make of an AWESOME cartoon and it really interested me. ANYHOW- it got some movement on facebook, sparking a little conversation between my commentators and so now maybe it’ll capture your attention.

Hopefully if people still care out there, I can drop a review from time to time. I actually wanted to write a piece on the bizarre way people think of my borough, my thoughts on Rihanna’s new role as the “potty mouth sex pot” and a list of movies I want to see…but I’ll do that some other time…as right now…*yawn* I’m sleepy.

ENJOY!
