Captain Marvel has the honorable, yet long overdue, distinction of being the first major film within the MCU to sport a female lead. The only question that remains: was it worth the wait?
Review by Zach Smith II DC Universe’s premier exclusive has two episodes left and is wrapping up in the best possible way — with delightfully extreme tension.
Welp, let’s chalk another one up in the “I-stand-corrected” column that started with Episode 8 of Titans — though this instance of correction is much less pleasing than the previous one. If you journey back to my review of Episode 2, “Hawk and Dove”, you’ll read that I quite liked the dynamic Continue Reading
After watching Episode 8 of Titans — titled “Donna Troy” — I can only ask myself one question. Where has this quality been all season? Why have we been flip-flopping between “plot episodes” and “character episodes” when, as made clear by this week’s episode, an effective combination of the two could be Continue Reading
Episode 7 of Titans — or “Asylum” — is a strange product. Along with “Together”, it’s probably a pretty good representation of what the show will be if it ever decides to actually be a show about the Titans, rather than a show about Dick Grayson. Yet it’s also more evidence for Continue Reading
Another week, another new episode of Titans. This episode, titled (rather unceremoniously) “Jason Todd”, picks up immediately after the closing moments of the last. Focusing almost entirely on the new and strained relationship between Old-Robin, a.k.a. Dick Grayson, and New-Robin, a.k.a. Jason Todd, the episode follows the duo as they attempt Continue Reading
It’s been an interesting road for Titans up until now. With eleven episodes planned for the season, Episode 5 — or “Together” — marks the closest thing to a “half-way point” the show is going to have. So how does that point fare? Well, it’s nothing spectacular, but it does at Continue Reading
Titans is quickly becoming the television equivalent of potato chips; there’s no substance and it’s not very good for you, but it’s pretty tasty and I would definitely eat two family-sized bags in one sitting if DC let me. To that end, while Episode 4 of the series — titled “Doom Continue Reading
“Third time’s a charm,” or so they say, and the third episode of Titans, titled “Origins” makes a pretty solid argument in favor of that. DCUniverse’s premier “belle-of-the-ball” had a bit of a rocky start, but it seems to have, thankfully, begun its upswing. Episode 3 still has a few Continue Reading
After the series premier of Titans, I was cautiously optimistic about the trajectory of the show. It definitely had room to improve, but it seemed to get off on the right foot. Episode 2, titled “Hawk and Dove”, is another step in the right direction, albeit while still stumbling on Continue Reading
It’s fair to say that DC Universe’s Titans comes with a lot of baggage. It’s the streaming service’s first truly exclusive content – meaning its success or failure will likely shape the production of most, if not all, of the in-house projects down the line – and it’s safe to Continue Reading
