Favorite Thespians #3 – Ben Affleck

Favorite Thespians - Ben Affleck

In honor of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being released in March, I am moving my Favorite Thespians-schedule around a bit. For one time only, Favorite Thespians is being released the day before I’m seeing the thespian’s latest film. This time it’s all about Ben Affleck!

Favorite Thespians is a monthly opinion piece wherein I name one of my favorite actors or actresses. Favorite Thespians contains three separate sections: one section on the first film I saw the thespian in (“On My Radar”), another section on 5 films you need to see to know the thespian (“Homework”), and a section on my favorite performance from him/her.

REVIEW: Daredevil – Season Two (2016)

Daredevil Reviewed

The following is a review of the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil, a Netflix Original Series. Expect spoilers from the first season, but spoilers for the second season will be kept at a minimum.

Saint Matthew is back! – I loved the first season of Marvel’s Daredevil. It was the perfect show for me, as it outweighed the light nature of other Marvel Studios content. Since then we’ve seen the excellent first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and how Daredevil lost its showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, with the latter leaving me very worried about the future of the show. The second season of Marvel’s Daredevil is the first piece of Marvel produced entertainment brought to you by Netflix in 2016, and I am glad to say that the level of entertainment is as high as it has ever been.  (more…)

I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards 2015: Nominations Announced

It’s about time for the third annual I’m Jeffrey Rex Awards! Writing it like that makes it sound super silly and serious all at the same time – don’t worry, I realize that! This year there are a total of 18 awards or titles. Each title has a maximum number of five nominees, and a minimum of three.

Today, in this post, I’m revealing the entire list of nominees, before returning with the official IJR Awards 2015 presentation on Monday the 21st of December. I had considered presenting the titles on the 18th of December, but due to the fact that I want spoilers for The Force Awakens to stay at a minimum on this site, I will not give myself the possibility of speaking in spoiler-language until the Monday after its release.

Speaking of Star Wars, I’ll be seeing it on the 16th of December, and due to the franchise’s place in my heart I’ll reserve a spot in each relevant category for The Force Awakens. (more…)

REVIEW: Jessica Jones – Season One (2015)

Jessica Jones Season Review

The following is a season one review of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, a Netflix Original show.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is a Netflix Original show created by Melissa Rosenberg, of Twilight and Dexter-fame, which continues the Netflix adventure for the Disney owned Marvel Universe. Set in the same world as Marvel’s Daredevil and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jessica Jones continues our journey to The Defenders mini-series. And while Jones’ villain, Kilgrave, wasn’t as complex as Wilson Fisk was in Marvel’s Daredevil, Kilgrave was much scarier. Jessica Jones‘ debut season is just as great as Daredevil‘s first season was. (more…)
