Reminiscences of the X-Men and intolerance

I had a moment of reflection the other day. I was watching Days of Future Past, and I was paying close(er) attention to Bolivar Trask, more specifically to his motivations and what made him (in my humble opinion) an excellent villain. I think it’s sad that Trask’s role didn’t impact the movie as much as it … Continue reading

Penny Dreadful- My running commentary of episode one

Netflix keeps feeding my need for geeky material, and the latest fix comes in the form of Penny Dreadful. What I knew prior to watching: It’s set on victorian London, it has a dark tone with supernatural aspects to the story. There’s magic or incantations or something of sorts.

Is that why we haven’t seen serious attempts at making any more franchises? I’d like for DC to get of their horse and give other heroes … Continue reading
