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.

City of Heroes: The MMO That Started It All

In 2004, I experienced my very first MMORPG. I was waiting with bated breath for it to be released and got it on the first day that it came out. I bought the strategy guide and spent countless hours on that game. That game had a profound impact on my writing and still does today.

Book Review – Iron Man: Armor Trap

Next in my series of books read is Iron Man-The Armor Trap. I’ve been reading this for a while and there’s a reason for that. It was laborious to get through this. Bordering on excruciating. But I like to finish what I start and in the end I ultimately learn something about writing.

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
