Classic ‘Iron Fist’ Look Debuts in Season 2 Trailer

For those of us who are old school traditionalist and admire the original costume our favorite heroes wore, we were rewarded when The Iron Fist Season 2 panel at the SDCC unveiled a look at the iconic yellow mask. Does that mean the green tights and yellow martial arts shoes are next? A guy can dream can’t he? Besides what good is a cool dragon tattoo if you can’t see it. Now with recently dropped teaser, we get a better look at it as Danny and Davos square off in a tradition fight in “Kun- Lun”. You can see the

If you’re going to “Crastinate,” be a Pro..

Do you remember the scene from the “Polar Express” where young Billy hesitates to get on the train and almost misses it? Fortunately for him, the “boy” (how come this kid doesn’t have a name?) pulls the emergency brake so he can get on. That my friends is an example of “procrastination.” I know all about procrastination. I started out as an amateur “crastinator” but thru the years I have become the “Pro” you WOULD see before you, if you were looking at me and not just reading this. Procrastination is why I have been a late comer to many

‘The Punisher’ Season 2 Is Exactly What Fans Want, Marvel CCO Promises

The Punisher season 1 is still my favorite show in the Marel Netflix universe. After introducing Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle in the second season of Daredevil, I knew that Castle’s solo series would be unlike any of the other Defenders universe shows. Gritty, raw, and explosive, The Punisher showcased the many different sides of its title character rather than just the violent soldier that we primarily saw in Daredevil. Of course, our favorite anti-hero was everything we wanted him to be, but seeing him as a friend, husband, and father was not something we were able to see before his own

‘Altered Carbon’ Renewed For a Second Season; Casts Antony Mackie as Lead

New season. New sleeve. Altered Carbon’s official twitter sent out today, announcing the renewal for a second season. The sci-fi show based on the book by Richard Morgan will return to Netflix with eight episodes, instead of the ten it had in season one. Premiering on February 2, 2018, this wildly imaginative show gauged mixed reactions, though; if you ask me, is definitely one of my favorites on the online streaming service. Primarily played by Joel Kinnaman, the show centers around Takeshi Kovacs as he awakes 250 years after originally being sentenced to a lifetime of being essentially decommissioned. We

‘Thumper’ Movie Review

Crime, thriller dramas revolving around underground drugs are a dime a dozen, but I love watching them regardless. Originally premiering at the 2017’s Tribeca Film Festival, Thumper is now available on Netflix to watch. It features a slew of familiar faces, such as Eliza Taylor (The 100), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Pablo Schreiber (Orange is the New Black), and Daniel Webber (The Punisher). The movie centers around a handful of teens with clearly no parental supervision who involve themselves in high school and hardcore drugs. At the epicenter of it all is Wyatt Rivers, portrayed by Schreiber. Wyatt is
