Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 5

31 May

5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) Until the release of The Avengers I considered Captain America to be the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Now I would probably call it a tie between Cap and the first Iron Man, but I still think the former is more unique and less of your [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 4

15 May

4. Thor (2011) I enjoyed Thor much more than I thought I would and was surprised by how solidly entertaining it was. I’ve never been a big fan of the character or the idea that Asgardian gods coexist with dudes in robot suits, super soldiers and big green monsters, but director Kenneth Branagh and star [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 3

7 May

Okay, so I slacked off on this. It’s May 7th and The Avengers has already come out and I’ve already seen it. But fuck it, I’m gonna go through with this- finish what you start, you know? So… where were we? 3. Iron Man 2 (2010) Iron Man 2 is undoubtedly the worst film in [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 2

30 Apr

2. The Incredible Hulk (2008) I’m beginning to see a trend with these Marvel movies. It seems to me that when the suits got together and decided to go ahead with their cinematic universe initiative, part of the plan was to enlist A-list actors of superb talent to bring Marvel’s iconic heroes to life. A [...]

Alex’s Marvel Movie Countdown, Part 1

22 Apr

Now that I’m once again woefully unemployed, I figured it was a better time than ever for a good ol’ fashioned Alex Hilhorst countdown. In anticipation of next month’s The Avengers, I’ve decided to watch all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Films in chronological order. That means Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, [...]

Damaged #5 Review

20 Feb

Sorry it’s been so long since I last updated the site. I’ve been really busy with work, my new internship and other writing projects. I’ve been working on a new spec/pilot that I’m hoping to submit to the network fellowships next month, so that’s been taking up a lot of my writing time. And then [...]

How the Hell Does Bruce Wayne Get Any Sleep?

26 Jan

Recently I’ve jumped back into the world of comic books. I was inspired to pick it back up again after learning that DC planned to reboot their entire line in a company-wide initiative dubbed “The New 52.” You can read reviews of some of the New 52 #1 issues here. The relaunch was a great [...]

Damaged #4 Advance Review

2 Dec

As I’m posting this almost a week before this issue actually hits stands, I’m going to make efforts not to spoil anything, but damn is it hard. This was a great issue, perhaps the best yet. To me, what made it such an outstanding installment was the places it took one of its characters, Jack [...]
