A tasteful memorial and a path to move forward.
There was a lot of speculation around how they would incorporate the loss of Chadwick Boseman and his rendition of T'Challa into the MCU, but it was done gracefully and with a lot of empathy. Beyond that, the movie itself is well done - great acting, beautiful visuals, and a solid story - even though there were some small but pronounced holes that could have made the film better with a little more fleshing out. More than anything, we're just proud the MCU has started to really figure out how to mix up the tone of their movies; we've come a long way from the Tony-Stark-ization of every character, and that's something to be celebrated, for sure.
It's more than just weird sky punches.
I wouldn't say that the rock has brought something hugely new and different to the genre, but I would say he's helped create a super fun, action-packed popcorn movie that's definitely worth seeing on a big screen. Oh, and it DOES have some implications for the rest of the MCU so, you know, be ready for that.
Black & white makes it all alright... or at least TV14.
It's a Halloween spooky special from your fright-night friends at Cover B! This week we're covering the recently released Werewolf By Night, a Marvel & Disney+ short horror film that does an incredible job stylizing itself after the old-school genre films. You know, except randomly for the "not-TVA" folks. Which... well, we'll tell you all about it. Time for some spooks!
Another one bites the dust... sigh.
This episode is both necessary and super sad. You may have heard that the Prime Video adaptation of Paper Girls has already been cancelled after just one season. While it may not have been the best new show to drop this year, it was a solid rendering of the story and a lack of renewal is a huge loss of potential. Just another hit to comic-based TV... sigh.
We got to review a HORROR film and we're really excited about it.
Grab your pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween soundtracks - it might only be September, but we're going full spooky season with this Shudder original, Revealer. Released with a comic promo/tie-in from Vault, get ready for an apocalyptic romp through the 80s, packed with religious zealotry and exotic dancers. This movie was super fun and we are REALLY hoping Shudder does more titles like this!
But how did everyone in this show get so attractive?!...
From beautiful visuals, to incredible effects, to brilliant casting with dynamic portrayals, this is one of those adaptations we'll be talking about for a LONG time. Hey, HBOMax, if you need some advice... maybe you should be chatting up Netflix?
Love & Thunder? More like Tolerate & A Quiet Fart.
This movie had one heck of a hype train behind it! Now that it's here, we've taken it upon ourselves to step out of summer break just to tell you that it's.... fine. Yep. It's... a movie... Damnit, Taika.
Well, now we've at least SEEN the toys in the box, I guess...
It's got a really long name, but between some excellent acting, tasty horror vibes, and pure Sam Raimi goodness, there's a lot to enjoy about this movie. Do we have our qualms?... yeah, we do. What, did you think this was a Spider-Man movie or something?
Maybe someday we'll get a movie from this universe that's worth seeing...
So, it's not the worst movie we've ever seen. In fact, it might even be better than Venom: Let There Be Carnage... but that doesn't mean it's good. Or even, really, okay. It's just sort of... well, it's kind of bad. Sony, why do you keep doing this to us?
Finally putting the "detective" back in Detective Comics...
There have been many movies about the Bat, but the new 3-hour spectacle from Matt Reeves is unafraid to take risks and do things the previous films haven't done, while staying very true to the comic source material. To say we were impressed is an understatement! However, when we say don't buy the big drink from concessions, we mean it...
