What is happening in Supernatural?

I have enjoyed the highs and lows of Supernatural ever since I first discovered it. I accepted the style of monsters looking more like humans than the monsters you’d think of, it made sense for budgetary reasons. But season 12 just seems to be spinning it’s wheels constantly. The plot of season 12 seems to be an overt set up of future seasons.

After the literal god tier threat of the previous season, it was always a worry of which direction the show would go in. That being said rehashing Lucifer’s daddy issues was not progressive and kind of boring. They even ended a possible season plot by defeating the Nazi Thule society in a single filler episode much in the same way they threw away the Stein family threat a few seasons earlier. It was a real shame as every other time the Thule society appear they were a credible threat as they were a worldwide organization the Winchester Brothers could not defeat single handed until they did.

Instead, the plot seems to be ‘Where is Kelly?’ and nothing else. It is frustration as it removes Castiel from the group dynamic as he wanders across America. In addition, they set up an obvious next season opposition in the princess of hell, an excuse to use yellow eyed demons again.

Alongside that there is a will they won’t they plot where the brothers are not sure where they will align themselves with the British Men of Letters. Which in an of itself has done a complete 180 from originally trying to kill Winchester brothers.

That being said there has been some episode that I have enjoyed like Episode 10 “Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets” as it showed that some Angels weren’t the greatest of creatures even before they had to fight the demons in Season 4 and before the fall of the Angels at the end of Season 8. Plus characters like Billie and Arthur Ketch who have been consistent in their stance with the Winchester brothers and always interesting when they showed up. Also, I am so glad that Lucifer is back in his old vessel ‘Nick’ (Mark Pellegrino) as every other actor has been a pale imitation of his performance excluding Misha Collins, also the dick measuring contests between Lucifer and Crowley are always fun.

Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell

All in all Season 12 is not my favourite season as it is so disjointed and aimless, I personally believe Season 6 was more interesting as it had an end goal.

I hope it improves soon. Tell me what you think in the comments or on Twitter.

Goodbye Earth 2

Goodbye Earth 2

With issue 22 of Earth 2 Society, the long-running story that started back in 2011’s Earth 2 has finally come to an end and I’m sad to see it go. The story has spanned many titles including Earth 2, Worlds’ Finest, Earth 2 World’s End, Convergence and Earth 2 Society. The characters within the group experienced great losses and wins, with the stakes always being high as if a character died they stayed dead for good.

earth-2-1

Personally, I have loved every minute of it with interesting characters and a genuine sense of fear for the lives of characters during the attack of Apokolips. The base for the comic was to give new life to the members of the Justice Society of America from the Pre-new 52. It made them younger and placed them on their own world (as the title suggests) and gave them their own problems with a single comic at a time to make it easier to follow the characters much like DC’s Injustice.

I think the experiment worked well as it did not have to tie into the so the writers were able to tell the story they wanted without fear of having to tie into other series. Through the various writers, the story of Earth 2 has finally to a satisfying as they comic started with the death of the Earth 2’s trinity, but through the heroes trials and tribulations they have finally found a sort of peace as they have a new home they can protect with the admiration the world of Earth 2.

Are any of the Lannister children are Secret Targaryens?

Are any of the Lannister children are Secret Targaryens?

It is widely accepted by fans of the Game of Thrones series (Song of Ice and Fire) that the Targaryens will rise again. It is summed up in one phrase, ‘the three heads of the dragon’. The idea is that the phrase refers to the three dragons that Daenerys owns, (Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal) but that the ‘heads of the dragon’ will be their riders. traditionally dragons have only ever been ridden by Targaryens. So the idea becomes who will ride the dragons? The most overt Targaryen is Daenerys, as she amasses her army to claim the Iron Throne.

daenerys

The second Targaryen as revealed in season 6, and hinted at throughout the books, is Jon Snow. As his mother was Ned’s sister Lyanna and his father was Rhaegar Targaryen.

jon-snow

So the question remains who is the third Targaryen, and as the title hints at it maybe a Lannister sibling. The theory is not originally mine but one devised from avid Game of Thrones fans.

lannisters-children

First the idea is that Tyrion is a secret Targaryen as the Mad King had taken interest in Tywin’s wife and raped her before Tywin stopped being the Hand of the King. The Pro’s are that Tyrion’s hair (pale blonde) could be a mix of the both Lannister and Targaryen hair colours. Also in the books, he has one black eye and one green eye which is regarded as mark of mixed blood in Westeros. Furthermore, Tywin states he is unsure whether Tyrion is actually his son lending credence to the theory that the Mad King raped his mother and explains Tywin’s disdain towards Tyrion. That being said there are direct parallels between Tyrion and Tywin that lead some to discredit the idea. For instance, they are both highly intelligent and they share similar personalities as they are both strong political strategists and use people like chess pieces.

tyrion

However, others believe they Cersei and Jamie could secret Targaryens who’s father would be the Mad King similar to how people claim that Tyrion is the son of the Mad King. However, the Mad King would have raped Tywin’s wife of their wedding day. The idea is supported as the two share they a similar trait to past Targaryen’s of incest. Cersei herself even makes a comment on it in defense to her incest with Jamie. Furthermore, Cersei seems to be taking on a similar role to the Mad King since all of her children have died, as she cares little for the life of anyone but her own and lusts for power. The question would remain, which of them would be the third head of the Dragon?

jaime-cersei-lannister

With that being said I would lean toward Tyrion being a Targaryen as it seems to be the way the books and show are positioning him, giving him a heroic end. That being said I would not put it past George R. R. Martin to pull the rug from under us and make Jamie and Cersei be secret Targaryens only to have Jamie kill Cersei to end her mad reign before it gets too far completing the prophecy of Maggy the Frog and claiming becoming the third head of the dragon.

With that being said tell me what you think in the comments or on Twitter if you want.

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.

logan-2

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

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.

Let me know what some of your favourite things were this month by tweeting at me or commenting below.

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

The Tsum Tsum Tag!

The Tsum Tsum Tag!

Hi!

Now I haven’t ventured into the realm of Disney blog posts, I thought this tag was the perfect opportunity to dip my toe in. You can look at Hollywood and Lime’s Post HERE! as she tagged me originally.

1. How many Tsum Tsums have you got?
I have 11 Tsum Tsums, it’s not a lot compared to a lot of other people completing this tag but I’m just a casual collector and get characters I like the look of.

2. What was your first?
My first Tsum Tsum was Stitch which my girlfriend won for me in a Disney Quiz funnily enough. After that I liked the look of the Venom Tsum Tsum and from that my collection began.

3. Do you have full set? What is your favourite set?
I don’t have a full set but I have most of the last Marvel set but I gave Ms Marvel to my girlfriend as she is one of her favourite characters.

5. Who is your most wanted Tsum Tsum?
I don’t really have a most wanted Tsum Tsum as I just get ones I like the look of but if they made a Punisher Tsum Tsum I would be there day one to get it

6. What set do you want them to make?
I don’t know really but I think they should make a Star Wars Rebels set as that is a Disney created Star Wars property so I think it would be the best of both worlds.

7. Do you collect just Disney or do you collect the Star Wars and Marvel ones?
My collection is mostly Marvel characters with the odd Disney and Star Wars characters.

8. Do you have any ones from Clintons/Target/other non-Disney Store shops?
I have some Clinton Tsums Tsums of characters they stopped making before I started collecting.

9. Do you dislike any Tsum Tsums?
I don’t dislike any Tsum Tsums I just buy ones I think represent the character the best in my opinion.

10. Who do you think they should have released with previous sets?
Disney tends to include most of the characters in each set so I cannot think of who they have missed. A bit boring, I know but that’s my answer as I’m a casual collector I don’t tend to notice.

I am going to tag the That Disney Dude, Josh! (just to make sure he does it :)) and anyone else who would like to take part.
