About Marvel's The Defenders trailer

Much like The Avengers before it, it's been a long and purposeful road to The Defenders.

The execs at Marvel Studios have planned and plotted the upcoming Netflix series since long before Daredevil emerged on the scene two years ago, and followed it up with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

You know, like Marvel did with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America etc and so on.

I loved the two seasons of Daredevil, but I never made it all the way through the subsequent series. I didn't even bother with Iron Fist because I don't know anyone who liked it. Shawn said it sucked, and that's enough for me.

Hand in my nerd card? Go fuck yourself, mouth breather. I'm bigger than you, and not in a I-live-in-my-mom's-basement-and-eat-waffles-out-of-a-big-bowl-of-syrup kinda way.

Superhero fatigue set in for me a long time ago, but the genre isn't going anywhere as long as the films continue to make big bucks, which they are, and the TV shows draw big ratings, which they must be as Iron Fist has been greenlit for a second season.

That being said, I've watched the Comic-Con trailer for The Defenders, and it looks pretty solid. Like The Avengers, it nicely brings all these street-level heroes together with the expected action and clashes of personality. We've got a month to wait before it comes out, and I, for one, will be tuning it.

Check it out!



And we've got a Punisher series to look forward to too. As I said on our Wonder Woman cast, I get way more excited for these vigilante heroes than I do the god-like ones, so I can watch shit like The Defenders and The Punisher all day long.

#CocktailHour: Slushtail

  Summer approaches, inspiring thoughts of sunshine, backyard parties, and having a tip and sip with friends.  With that in mind, I bring you this week sunny beverage. To make a slushtail, mix a can of frozen orange juice, a can of frozen lemonade (or limeade), a can of pineapple juice, a couple cups of black tea (or English Breakfast), and two cups of bourbon- such as Southern Comfort, in a pitcher.  When it's all nicely mixed, put it in the freezer until it's a nice slushy consistency. Scoop the slush into a cocktail glass, and pour in some Sprite or 7-Up.  Add a little umbrella for some frivolous fun, and a straw. Voila!  Ready to enjoy. This is a very refreshing drink.  The fruit juices, Sprite, and bourbon- when chilled makes for a great punch-like drink.  The bourbon doesn't overwhelm juices.   In fact, they are all nicely balanced in terms of flavors.  The sourness of the citrus fruits contrasts well with the slightly sweeter Southern Comfort.  It was refreshing enou

Marcus Flor vs Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In film, there's nothing I enjoy more than passionate creativity. Compared to the sea of mediocrity surrounding it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is practically overflowing with it. This animated movie is vibrant, kinetic, and extremely inventive with its art style. On top of all that, this is just a solid movie. It tells its story with sincerity and tact, always focusing on the important aspects of Miles' emotional journey. The script wastes no time on pointless scenes or moments, which also gives the film an energetic rhythm that draws you in. One of the other great aspects of this movie is its reinvention of the Spider-Man story. It's clever writing demonstrates a true understanding of the webslinger, and offers commentary on the current state of his movie adaptations. In the end, you get a film both Spidey fans and non-fans can enjoy. Above all other aspects, what I like most about Spider-Verse is how fun it is. It demonstrates quality animation and filmmaking doesn

From The Basement - the "final" three

Just a gentle reminder From The Basement returns next Friday -- June 11 -- to the mighty Radio NL with an all-new episode! That's the good news. The bad news it'll be the first of our final three prime-time shows. What, you might ask? Are you bastards quitting AGAIN!?!? No. No we're not. We learned our lesson the last time. Shawn and I's long-running show will return to being "just a podcast," and not adhering to any set broadcast schedule. Why, you ask? Our lives are becoming increasingly busy outside of The Basement, and it's getting harder for Shawn and I to keep up with the latest movies, TV shows and entertainment news. We'd rather cease our weekly duties than produce an inferior product. Simple as that. Much thanks to Howie Reimer and the Radio NL crew for hosting us the last three years, first as a Friday morning segment, then as a prime-time series. It's been a blast! Don't worry, we're not coasting on these last three episodes. T
