SBox Recommends: Thor — Ragnarok (Movie Review)

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

Welcome back to SBox Recommends, where our motto is “every film has its fans”. Here I see a movie, review it, and then find out who will like it most and who will like it least.

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe (aka Hollywood’s elaborate game of cinematic connect-the-dots) is a series made up of multiple different movies, it’s important to remember that it was all built on the back of three trilogies starting around the same time: the Iron Man trilogy, the Captain America trilogy, and the Thor trilogy. These trilogies not only launched the MCU, but also remained a constant of the series throughout the years. These are what brought everything together and developed the core of what the MCU is all about narratively and tonally. And now it’s time for the last of these trilogies to come to an end.

Everybody knows the Avengers is incomplete without everyone’s favorite, ginormous, Shakespearean, hammerhead blondie in a cape to bring it all together.

So, between my love for the Thor movies, my anticipation for Avengers 3, and the addition of the Hulk of all people to the story, how could I possibly miss the final installment in this often underappracieted trilogy? Let’s see if Ragnarok is worth getting excited for! Continue reading SBox Recommends: Thor — Ragnarok (Movie Review)

SBox Soapbox: How the X-Men Can Fit Into the MCU

These characters — the Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Deadpool — have been notably absent from the ever-growing Marvel film playground despite having a great amount of importance in the comics. This unfortunate reality has led many to hope for a day when these FOX-owned properties will be reunited with their friends over at Disney. But where could these characters fit if and when they do come back into the fray?

In this 3 part miniseries, I plan on tackling this question with each of the FOX-owned Marvel franchises, discussing some of the ways Marvel Studios could merge these characters into the MCU. Continue reading SBox Soapbox: How the X-Men Can Fit Into the MCU

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

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)
