A to Z Challenge – The Flash

Welcome to the 2021 A to Z Challenge! My theme this year is DC Comics. And that’s mostly because of my undying affection for the comic book characters and stories that I grew up reading in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s. So stay tuned all month to (maybe) learn a little something about 26 corners … Continue reading A to Z Challenge – The Flash

Why Don’t Superheroes Stay Dead?

Earlier today, as a part of this month's A to Z Challenge, I wrote a post about Doomsday, the creature/being that killed Superman in the now classic Death of Superman storyline of the early 1990s. In response to that post, our blogging friend T asked why people always die and come back to life in … Continue reading Why Don’t Superheroes Stay Dead?

What I Thought of DC Fandome

Warning: This will be one of the geekiest posts I have ever written. I will not apologize for it. You have been warned. Kids, this weekend the folks over at DC Entertainment presented their big deal virtual replacement of Comic Con with DC Fandome. With COVID-19 being what it has been this year, the annual … Continue reading What I Thought of DC Fandome

After Seeing Justice League

I'm just gonna say it up front. I liked it. I know a lot of people won't. I've come to accept that I live in a world where the majority of moviegoers believe that the people at Marvel can do no wrong and the people at DC can do no right. And I think I've … Continue reading After Seeing Justice League

After Seeing Wonder Woman

A week ago, I saw Wonder Woman in IMAX 3D. It was wonderful. Five days ago, on a whim, I decided to see it again. This time, I went to a cheaper matinee with a standard 2D viewing. It was still wonderful. Two days ago, I saw it again with a group of friends. It … Continue reading After Seeing Wonder Woman

Why I’m Over Television

I'm a TV kind of guy. I like it. Having a screen that presents me with hours of endless entertainment is kind of nice. But... lately... I don't know. I'm just... kind of... over the whole thing. Don't get me wrong, I still watch the television from time to time. In fact, last weekend I … Continue reading Why I’m Over Television

Movies w/ Jeff: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

I have a lot to say about this movie. A lot. But that's because I'm slightly biased. If you know me at all, you know that I have been a fan of Superman since shortly after birth, so I was inclined to thoroughly enjoy this film long before it was even announced as being in … Continue reading Movies w/ Jeff: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Before Seeing Batman v. Superman…

Kids, this one has been a long time coming. To say I'm excited about seeing Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman together on the big screen is a supreme understatement. See, it's rare that I get excited. In fact, I've often joked that, for me, excitement looks like your average person's meh. But I'll admit that … Continue reading Before Seeing Batman v. Superman…

Introduction

Kids, if you don't watch Arrow or The Flash, this blog post may not make a lot of sense to you. I need to use those TV shows to illustrate my main point here. So if you are among those who just aren't that into super hero shows, you are under no obligation to press … Continue reading Introduction

The Problem With Time Travel

Okay. This is one of those posts where I let me geek show. Specifically, this is a post about The Flash TV series. Not the one from the 90s, but the current one. Don't get me wrong, I loved the one from the 90s when I was a kid. But, being a bigger geek now … Continue reading The Problem With Time Travel
