Daredevil Episode 1-2 Recap

Alright kiddies, let’s talk Daredevil Season 2: The first 2 episodes

[SPOILERS] Starting with episode One!

So we rejoin Matty still saving the streets of Hell’s Kitchen with his slowly-growing-on-me outfit. After he saves a girl by approaching an armed man head on in a dark church… because you know, cant use darkness to your advantage- but anyway he saves her and we jump back into the dude brothers, Foggy and Matt. I gotta be honest, the trailer made Foggy  seem much more like an annoying punk-boy than he is in the actual show. They’ve come to an understanding, and while Foggy does protest against his friend fighting crime he does it in more realistic way. Their firm is still broke because innocent people are pretty much akin to broke people and no one can provide suitable payment for the Nelson & Murdock services. I enjoy a hero show where there isn’t just an stupid amount of resources and money at the  group’s disposal (ie. The Flash and Arrow) but when Matt Murdock responds to their situation, “We’ll manage, I don’t know how, but I know we will.” No one stopped him and said, “Really nigga?”

Best buddies once again! Kinda.

The Punisher is introduced with an off-screen barrage of bullets and shredding of gangster’s bodies. I found the scene a little hard to believe unless the Punisher was using some automatic turret that we had no idea about. Anyway this incident forces us to endure some guy whose name already escapes me, but I’ll call him Slimy Mc’Sweaty. He seeks out the law firm’s help and wants out before the Punisher comes for him. Foggy then teams up with a more bigger firm to get this done. This forces us to – again – endure hanging around ummm, let’s say…Cindy Ms.Cunt, who for all purposes is set to be a douchete because I imagine it will play a part later on the show.

Now similar to those TV shows I mentioned earlier, there is at least the glorified thirsty female protagonist and Karen is kickin that into high gear. I wonder if she thinks since he’s blind, he then wont notice the punticular lack of booty she has, but whatever. Oh I know it’s not a big point but they got this generic “angry black commissioner” type guy who just is always angry and I find so terribly funny every time has line, because its some of the most over-the-top inappropriate lines, I’m surprised no one is asking, “Are you real?” I’m glad the other black guy is actually doing well so far.

Electra, the hottest killer alive. Claire, a super fine nurse who keeps it real… And you want to ship this?

 

Any-who Mc’Sweaty is in the hospital, but Mr.P is coming for him…I mean like with a shotgun, no mask, blasting throughout the hospital! HOW HAS NO ONE BEEN ABLE TO ID THIS MAN!? Anyway just as he’s about to get the kill Matt jumps in and they fight, it was odd because I feel like if its a matter of hand to hand combat, the Punisher shouldn’t be able to even touch Matt but maybe that’s just how good he is. However we do see that unarmed, he begins to lose the fight, that’s until he pulls out a baby pistol and tags Matt in head. Luckily the mask saved him but man how odd would that have been if he was still in his black tights days. Punisher – 1, Daredevil – 0

Shane IS now MR.P!

Episode 2 gives me a little more sympathy for Foggy, I mean he held his boy in his arms pretty sure he was dead so man… I hate to admit I get him. Their exchange felt real and I understand why Foggy is getting fed up with Matt and his B.S. CW “I NEED TO DO IT ALL” attitude. This episode was a little slower, especially hearing Karen’s annoying voice whine about how they all created the Punisher. Then what vigilante created Daredevil, did I mention I hate that chick’s voice. Did I mention she’s thirsty?  Another character I’m enjoying is the guy who made Matt’s suit, I think he’s soft in the head but then he says some smart things, either way I’m enjoying him this season as well. So back to the ever so boring, side-plot(I’m sorry am I the only who doesn’t care what happens to this guy), Cindy Ms Cunt tricks Mc’Sweaty into being bait for  Mr.P, that doesn’t go well for her. DareDevil shows up and they fight again while being shot at by several cops. I mean really? Is this fight really worth the gamble of a random head-shot? After the fight ends Foggy frantically runs out to check on the scene in such an obviously caring manner that his running should just leave a cartoon smoke streak that form the words, “Matt is the Daredevil”. He gets the last visible area only to find both of them are gone!

The two episodes are a nice start I found Ep.2 to be a little lackluster but wait til we get into part 3 and 4!  P.S – What was up the hilarious scene when Matt lost his senses!? I know the inaudible screaming and banging was supposed to be emotional but I couldn’t stop laughing. Okay I’m done!

DeadPool Movie Review: If only This Came Sooner

So…Man where do I start?

It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that this is one of my most anticipated movies of the year. For those who may not know, DeadPool was a project that Ryan Reynolds(playing Deadpool himself) has been trying to get green-lit for a long time. The movie stars Wade Wilson, a mercenary with a terrible sense of humor(terrible that it’s offensive but still funny) who is borderline insane, but has a sliver of humanity left in him. This humanity is enhanced when he meets a lovely stripper… prostitute….waitress? I’m not sure, she was either two or all three of those– moving on — but it turns out she is just as messed up as he is and they hit it off. They become an item until Wade is hit with cancer from the blindside. Now Wade rather not drag his girl down with him, so as he’s about to ditch his beloved he gets an invitation to not only cure him but give him super powers. Well with a 2-for-1 deal that would make Chilli’s blush, how can he say no? Continue reading “DeadPool Movie Review: If only This Came Sooner”

Suicide Squad and Deadpool: Excited and Confused

So let’s talk about the recent trailers that popped up on the interwebs!

Now I know everyone who’s owned a friggin bat-symbol shirt has gave their reviews and reactions to these trailers but to me I found the Suicide Squad and Deadpool trailers as a symbol of something even more pivotal.

I believe that symbol pierces the clouds and rains yells at the eyes of anyone who sees it screaming, “HEY!!!! LIGHTEN UP!!!” Continue reading “Suicide Squad and Deadpool: Excited and Confused”

Jessica Jones Review A.K.A “Call me Impressed”

Alright! So let’s talk Jessica Jones in spoiler free fashion,

…Well I’ll try,

Now Jessica Jones(Krysten Ritter) started out a little odd for me because I was still stuck on the Daredevil hype and thus my expectations were sorely off. I’m not sure what I was expecting exactly, perhaps to be more thrilling and action packed. This is my fault entirely especially since I read a lot of the Alias comics and to be fair, action was not it’s primary focus. After I adjusted my expectations for a gritty, supernatural, detective story with a dash of Marvel flare I began enjoying myself. The first episode seemed a little slow until near the end when we learned just how high the stakes truly were. Continue reading “Jessica Jones Review A.K.A “Call me Impressed””

Why The Godlike Avengers Are Being Outshined by Street Heroes Like Daredevil

Hey remember the early 2012, where the roars of nerds could shatter glasses? Those were the days when the comic movies were expanding, exploding and evolving into something that isn’t just for a certain demographic. We witnessed them as it reached mass appeal and without being completely aware of it, we were in the midst of a movie-genre renaissance. Then the Avengers arrived, for the first time daring to combine characters from separate movies all to form the ultimate team up experience! And it did not disappoint!
