Is Edna Mode a reformed Supervillain?

Is Edna Mode a reformed Supervillain?

Edna Mode is an amazing character that stole the hearts of everyone with her few brief appearances. However recent theories have speculated that Edna is a reformed supervillain and today we will look at some of the reasons Edna might be a supervillain.

Edna Mode’s Facility

Rather than regular gates, Enda’s home has laser gates something resembling a lair of a villain from a James Bond movie. Furthermore, when her security system thought Elastigirl was an intruder, the system tired to kill Elastigirl with a sentry gun. I know Edna is a bit eccentric but it makes more sense if you think of her as a former supervillain. In addition, the methods in which, Edna tests the durability of the Parr family super suits is cool none the less but also screams supervillain.

Contempt for her Guards

Many supervillains don’t like their underlings e.g. The Joker, Penguin, but Enda seems to have some extra contempt for them like she doesn’t want them there at all. It would be reasonable to assume that is the Government is monitoring heroes that they would also monitor villains too, and might even place guards to make sure she doesn’t do anything to threaten the world. Plus why would a fashion designer need guards for?

Jack-Jack’s Outfit

Edna designed a suit for Jack-Jack with various retardants as she didn’t know his power set, even though Helen claimed he had no powers. But how would she know things like the suit needed to withstand 1000 degrees? Was she spying on the Parr family? Maybe we will never know.

A Villain’s Mind

Designing Jack-Jack’s suit almost shows forethought about villain’s intention. Did she know that Syndrome would try to kidnap Jack-Jack? She was one step ahead of him in the aid of the Parr family. She claims to be looking for a thrill, that is why she designed the hero costumes. Many villains get bored easily and pry into the lives of the heroes.

Her Dress Sense

Edna is dressed like a modern twist on many Disney villains. She had the cigarette holder much like Cruella Deville and the colour scheme of villains like Maleficent and the Evil Queen.

So what do you think of the theory? Do you like it or think it holds any weight? Let me know in the comments or on twitter.

Beauty and the Beast (2017) Review (Non-Spoilers)

Beauty and the Beast (2017) Review (Non-Spoilers)

Better late than never but if Disney is still trying to capitalise on Beaty and the Beast why can’t I? I was worried about the film before it came out as I was not sure how they would approach the source material. I was afraid it would be a carbon copy of the 1991 classic. However, I think the film walks the line quite well.

The cast itself is quite strong with my personal favourite being Luke Evans as Gaston, as he embraces the role will so much vigour and enthusiasm. Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth play their roles brilliantly playing off of each other to much delight. However, I found Emma Watson as Belle to be a bit flat in some moments but overall a good performance.

The new film allowed Disney to address some of the plot holes made in the animated film, some obviously and some more subtly. The adaption to live action played to the strengths of the actors which only aided the film. Josh Gad as Lefou took full advantage of his role adding in some ‘cheeky’ moments that I quite enjoyed like paying off people in the tavern to sing for Gaston.

B & B servants

The songs were all wonderfully sang as they played into the actor’s strengths and weaknesses in their singing abilities. So the songs may not have been as bombastic as the original but they were all brilliant in the context of the film. Dan Stevens as Beast even got an original song that was great and added to the Beast’s development.

All in all I really enjoyed the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. It was entertaining with highs and lows all keeping my attention. It is definitely a film people should watch.

March Favourites

March Favourites

It’s the end of the month again already, so it’s time for another favourite’s list for the month of March.

5. Andy the Aardvark

Andy the Aardvark

So for me and my partner’s 2 year anniversary, we decided to visit Chester Zoo because we enjoy day trips to the Zoo, and I had a surprise present of an adopted Crocodile for her. That being said I tend to like some of the ‘weirder’ animals when we go to Zoo’s (they mostly have pig noses). My favourite animal at Chester Zoo is the Aardvark’s as they are always so chill and they sleep all day (something I wish I could do). So as a gift my partner bought me an Aardvark soft toy, which I called Andy as I am really creative with names, and he has taken pride of place on my bedside cabinet.

4. Lilo and Stitch 15th Anniversary Pin

Lilo-Stitch-15th-Anniversary-Pin

Lilo and Stitch is one of if not my favourite Disney movie. I can watch it whenever it is on any time of the day. So when I saw the 15th Anniversary pin was going to released on the 7th of March, I had to have it.

3. Earth 2 Society issue 22

Earth 2 Society 22

Earth 2 Society issue 22 is the final issue in the Earth 2 saga that started back in 2011 with the New 52 Earth 2. It was a brilliant send off the characters within its pages and I was sad to see it finish but it ended very respectfully and concluded the story with room for them to be used in other stories. If you want to see more of my thoughts on the Earth 2 saga click HERE to read my post on it.

2. Logan

Logan is easily my favourite of the Fox Marvel films. It is a perfect send off to both Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman. It is tense, tragic, funny and endearing all at the same time. I would highly recommend it to any X-Men or Wolverine fan. Click HERE to see my full review.

1. Mass Effect Andromeda

Mass Effect Andromeda

Mass Effect is my favourite game franchise of all time and the release of Andromeda made me so happy. I know some people have issues with it but I’m fully enjoying the game for what I have played of the game.

Logan Review (Non-Spoiler)

Logan Review (Non-Spoiler)

I have been excited for the Logan movie ever since the first trailer with the Johnny Cash’s cover of The Hurt. It portrayed a world where Logan is a broken man just looking for some peace for himself and Professor Xavier. The film delivers on this and so much more with a sliver of hope in the form of the little girl (Luara) that Logan has to protect from the Reavers.

The film also pulls from several comic storylines including Old Man Logan and a few others. It also has a few subtle hints at the comics with everything from Logan taking on the name James Howlett and a Wolverine toy in his classic yellow costume.

logan-3

Everyone in the film plays their role brilliantly with strong performances from Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. Dafne Keen as Laura plays a is scary, enduring and loveable all at the same time, a difficult act to pull off. Stephen Merchant is both tragic and hilarious playing every scene brilliantly.

logan-trailer-700x300

It is easily the best Wolverine movie that Fox has produced and I would even argue it is the best film that Fox has made in the X-Men universe in total. It is a comic book movie where it genuinely had surprising moments. It also used its higher rating with great effect making it feel like a true Wolverine film, where other ones just feel like they’re pulling their punches. It definitely took the right lessons from Deadpool.

Logan is a thrilling film that everyone has to see this year it is the perfect send off to Hugh Jackman as the Wolverine character.

February Favourites!

February Favourites!

I thought I’d give this type of post a try. So even if I struggle to write posts, (which I hope I don’t) I’ll at least have a consistent post each month. With that being said let’s get on with my top 5 favourite things I got/did/discovered over February.

5. Lego Batman

lego-batman-1024x576

 

Lego Batman was an enjoyable film that I was, fortunately, able to see in the cinema. It held probably the most Batman easter eggs ever in a film and I enjoyed trying to spot them all. It is was a lot of fun and a great family film. To hear more of my thoughts on the film, I’ll link to my review of it HERE.

4. Darth Vader Pin

disney-store-darth-vader-pin

 

Admittedly I’m a casual pin collector thanks to my girlfriend but this pin I’m especially proud of as it looks awesome in my opinion. That being said it is a pin of one of the greatest movie villains ever, how could not add it to my collection.

3. Disney Infinity Figures

disney-infinity-3-0-characters-1024x536

 

For those of you that don’t know, I’ve set myself the monumental task of collecting all of the Marvel and Star Wars Infinity Figures, as well as a few favourites from the regular Disney lines. During one of our trips to the town centre, I and my girlfriend stumbled across a 3 for 2 deal on Disney Infinity figures. In the end, we walked away with a Stitch, Mulan, and Kanan for our collection.

2. Black Mirror

black-mirror

 

After hearing so much about the show I decided to take a look as it and I loved it. With its clever writing and interesting storylines, it is definitely a show for people looking for something a bit different. It is the Twilight Zone for a new age.

1. Leaving Megalopolis

leaving-megaopolis

 

The 2014, Dark Horse, published comic by Gail Simone (Secret Six, Batgirl) and Jim Calfiore (Exiles, Gotham Underground) is a comic I’ve had in my wishlist for a long time now and finding it for £2.99 and free postage I simply couldn’t resist. It is a fantastic read that takes a look at a world where their superheroes turned against humanity and began hunting them rather than saving them. It is one of my favourite indie comics and I cannot wait to read the follow-up Surviving Megalopolis.

Lego Batman Review

Lego Batman Review

First of all, I really enjoyed the Lego Batman Movie, it was a strong kids movie with a lot of in-jokes and references geared towards adults and Batman fans. The opening scene highlighted too many Batman tropes to mention with a crazy opening act, that contains the entire rouges gallery from heavy hitters like Joker and Bane to more obscure villains like Condiment King and Crazy Quilt.

maxresdefault

The humour is non-stop from the very beginning, a joke a minute. Sometimes you might miss a joke because you are laughing at the previous joke. The films does not take itself too seriously like other Batman movies of the past, and that is a big advantage. With a throwaway reference to the Lego movie, it is able to play with the environment much in the same way.

lego_batman_movie_reference_guide

It is definitely a fun film for all ages and a must see for any Batman fan. It is ultimately a kids film but there is a lot for people of all ages to chew on. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable movie
