SBox Quickie: A Deadpool Animated TV Show Is Coming!

deadpoolcartoon-995473-1280x0

Last year saw the release of Deadpool, one of the most unique superhero films in recent memory and an instantaneous hit for the house of X-Men. Through its unique blend of raunchy comedy, exciting violence, fourth-wall breaks, and chimichangas, Deadpool has won over the hearts of untold millions worldwide. It propelled Deadpool from a moderately known comic book character to a pop culture icon.

Nowadays, it’s commonplace to see Deadpool on shirts, games, hats, memes, and other memorabilia, along with a modest and somewhat watered-down presence on TV. Lately, Deadpool’s TV presence has been limited to Disney 😄 shows like Ultimate Spider-Man, which is nice other than it being a cameo on a G-rated show. If only there were a way to make Deadpool’s TV presence a little more… how would Deadpool put this?… Sexier. Yeah, let’s go with that!

Enter Donald Glover Continue reading SBox Quickie: A Deadpool Animated TV Show Is Coming!

SBox Recommends: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (Movie Review)

Note: SBR never spoils. You are safe. Enjoy!

First thing’s first. Since we’re talking about Guardians of the Galaxy, I’d like to quickly divert your attention to this post I made all the way back in 2014… I never did make that review, which was a huge regret of mine for years now. So, in a weird way I’m really glad I get to at least fulfill that old promise by reviewing its brother 3 years later.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that I was extremely excited for this movie. Not only is this the sequel to one of my favorite movies of the past decade, but this film also marks one measly year until our favorite Bunch of Jackasses finally meet Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers 3. But I’m getting ahead of myself. I’ve been so invested in the trailers and news surrounding the film; my mind racing with what this film would be about and how it’ll try to match the surprise hit that was the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Did it succeed in doing that, or did it just fall short of greatness? Only one way to find out. Continue reading SBox Recommends: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (Movie Review)

SBox Soapbox: Spider-Man Won’t Leave the MCU… I Hope (My Theory)

spider-man-ant-man

So this is where we’re at, huh? I mean, we had a good thing going this week with the new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer looking amazing and showing us a lot more of what we want to see; perhaps a bit too much of it in my opinion. Still, I can’t deny how excited I continue to be for this movie to come out. It still remains my most anticipated movie of the year, so much so that I’m begging for Guardians of the Galaxy and Wonder Woman to just come and go already so that we can be in July. And then comes the troubling news. Continue reading SBox Soapbox: Spider-Man Won’t Leave the MCU… I Hope (My Theory)

SBox Analyzes: The Flash Season 3 Predictions

flash-season-3-flashpoint-broken

Early this year during my winter break, I decided to finally take the plunge and delve into the DC Television Universe. I was putting it off for a while at the time as something I’d get to eventually, but one day boredom preceded me enough to put my procrastination aside. I took to Netflix that day to find a full season of The Flash waiting for me. Roughly three days later I emerged victorious, adding one more show to my watchlist. That was one hell for a binging session, one I’d recommend wholeheartedly to anyone who has a bit of time and a love of lighthearted, comedic action shows with somewhat of a villain of the week format. You won’t regret it.

As of right now we’re less than a weeks removed from the show’s prominent return with Season 3. Season 2 proved to be a great adventure in multidimensional awesomeness. It brought a ton of surprises and twists our way, introduced us to many new characters (as well as new versions of preexisting ones), and ultimately put the show’s core story in one hell of an interesting spot towards the end. Of course most people already know of Season 2’s jaw-dropping cliffhanger simply by the show’s title. If you somehow aren’t and plan to become a member of S.T.A.R. labs in the near or distant future, then make like the Flash and zoom out of here quickly, because this post will contain spoilers for Season 1 and 2.

SBox Recommends: Suicide Squad (Movie Review)

Note: SBR never spoils. You are safe. Enjoy!

Those who have been following me for a while will know that I’m a sucker for a good comic book movie. Comic book movies tend to rank highly on my annual Movie Countdowns, and they’re always my most anticipated films of any given year. However, for as much shine and attention as I give to the many Marvel films that come out each year, I feel that I’ve been neglecting the other major comic book film entity lately: the DCEU. This has not been on purpose, but I do feel it’s about time I remedy that by discussing DC’s latest venture, Suicide Squad. Continue reading SBox Recommends: Suicide Squad (Movie Review)

SBox Recommends: Captain America – Civil War (Movie Review)

Note: SBR never spoils. You are safe. Enjoy!

It’s strange how far we have come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Can you believe we have reached the point where we’re talking about the final Captain America movie? So strange. Though I have to admit, this particular Captain America movie goes a bit beyond being just a Captain America movie. This is the rising action of the Marvel story arc; the point where we’re no longer setting up the world and are now introducing the conflict. And what better way to introduce that conflict than with war? Continue reading SBox Recommends: Captain America – Civil War (Movie Review)

My 2015 Movies: Avengers – Age of Ultron (#6)

avengers-age-of-ultron-uk-poster

Every year, including this one, my most anticipated film is always a Marvel film. Lord knows my family and I were super pumped for Avengers 2 considering Marvel’s cinematic winning streak since 2008. We couldn’t wait for this film. We even assigned each other Marvel character T-shirts for the occasion of watching the movie opening weekend. (I wore the Ultron short). And thank God this movie turned out to be just as awesome as we wanted it. Continue reading My 2015 Movies: Avengers – Age of Ultron (#6)

My Quick Thoughts on Captain America: Civil War Trailer 2

Probably my most anticipated film of 2016, Captain America: Civil War just keeps looking better and better. As an avid Marvel movie fan, I am always looking forward to the next big Marvel outing. This is especially true in this case as everything is clearly starting to turn ugly in the MCU. You know things are going down when everyone, and I mean everyone, is coming to kick ass and take names. And that’s solidified with this final trailer for Civil War. Continue reading My Quick Thoughts on Captain America: Civil War Trailer 2

My 2015 Movies: Kingsman – The Secret Service (#12)

So, for those who don’t know, I forgot to add this movie to the list at the start of the countdown. I originally thought this was a 2014 film, but was reminded during the Oscars last week that this film was in fact a 2015 release. Luckily, I couldn’t have caught the mistake at a better time, as when I went to evaluate this film’s place on this Countdown, it ended up fitting perfectly on the list without me having to go out of order. That’s a testament to how good this movie was. Continue reading My 2015 Movies: Kingsman – The Secret Service (#12)

My 2015 Movies: Ant-Man (#13)

antmanintl2

Ant-Man, that superhero most people knew existed, but only knew him because the concept sounds incredibly stupid. He was the character everyone including some comic fans made fun of for obvious reasons, and by far the oddest candidate for a standalone Marvel film. Yeah we all laughed about it even up to opening day while in the face of all the positive buzz. But deep down we all knew we were going to see it. If Marvel could sell us on talking raccoons and trees the previous year, we had to see how they would sell us on Ant-Man. Continue reading My 2015 Movies: Ant-Man (#13)
