Iron Fist and Writing

Iron Fist debuted this past Saturday on Netflix. I and the wife have watched all 13 episodes (well, at least I did). So what is the verdict. Understand, I am a comic book fan and I’m also a writer so I’m always looking at these things from the perspective of a writer. And…wow. This was just…well…go ahead and read the post because I say more than a little bit about this Netflix series.

Batman vs. Superman and Writing

You may say that I’m on a mission this year and I am. I will restructuring the website to be just the simplest of sites for my writing and the genre of my writing passion which is the superheroic/supernatural/action/science-fiction genre (yeah. Just made that up).

So that means I’m going to be playing catch up in the next few weeks when it comes to my movies. So, first up on the chopping block is DCs 2016 bomb, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Good googly moogly. Read on intrepid read reader, if you dare.

Ant-Man and Writing

Ant-Man-Banner-Slide

Ant-Man was the last superheroic movie that was added to the Marvel cinematic movie continuity last year (weird saying that). I didn’t get to it until later on in the year much after the fact. I had some time to watch it last month so I sat down and give it a look. Of course, when I watch a movie I’m not just looking to be entertained. I’m looking at all of the nuances like camera shots, dialogue, and the overall writing which to me, if it’s bad, the whole movie is a wash and it won’t matter what actor you put in it to try to save it. I was wondering if this was going to be one of those movies.

Netflix’s Daredevil and Writing

Daredevil has always been a favorite superhero of mine since the mid-1980s when Frank Miller redefined him. I’ve been collecting his comic off and on ever since. I was disappointed tremendously when the movie version of Daredevil was released in 2003 (just adding to one of the many reasons I loathe seeing Ben Affleck in any superhero film). Well, Marvel has rebooted him in a series on Netflix which was recently released. Of course, I had to do one of my infamous posts on it.

Avengers: Age of Ultron and Writing

As I promised, I am bringing my report of Avengers: Age of Ultron and what I learned from the movie as a writer. For those of you that may be newcomers to the party, the stories I write can be defined as superheroic or speculative fiction. The slate of superheroic movies is a great opportunity

Avengers: Age of Ultron and Writing – Prelude

Well, you knew it was coming, didn’t you? With all of the posts that I’ve done with this kind of theme (remember Captain America – Winter Soldier and the X-Men – Days of Future Past?), it was inevitable. However, this is the first time that I’ve ever done a prelude to a movie-and-writing post without

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and Writing

I’m a fan of fantasy because there is a whole lot of truth in some of it. That being said, I went to see the latest offering of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. Though I normally like to relate movies closer to the superhero genre, this had elements in it that qualified it as being included. So consider this more of a special inclusion rather than a normal thing.
