wicked

Everyone loves a good villain. An interesting and engaging antagonist is vital to a successful story, be that a physical being or an ethereal idea. From psychopaths to masterminds to literal gods, some of these characters even get more fans than their corresponding heroes. And you have to admit, there’s something weirdly satisfying about that. But creating and constructing a decent villain is difficult in and of itself. In a world with The Joker or Sauron as the possible big bad, nobody wants a Scrappy Doo. Even some big-time baddies are overestimated and overblown, to the point they’re little more than wacky inflatable tube menRead More →

undead

The Undead Persist Thought I was done with the undead? Well you’re almost right, as this will be the last piece in my miniseries. I know, I’m sad too. This time, however, we’re going to take a bit of a different approach to our foul friends. We’re going to examine a small subgroup within the undead umbrella that, in all actual factual reality, isn’t undead. The creatures here are more in line with the term “infected”, as they aren’t actually dead, just really, really angry. And just like Marvel’s jolly green giant in purple pants, you won’t like them when they’re angry. To clarify, the ghoulish groupsRead More →

Since this is the second piece, would it technically be a “return of the living dead”? We’re going to run with that. Hello, greetings, and so on. Welcome to the second week of zombie fever, my personal pieces leading up to Halloween season. Last week’s discussion was on Romero, the perennial patriarch of the Hollywood/pop culture zombie. This week, let’s examine writer Max Brooks, one of the spiritual successors to Romero and his honorable horrors. Now while I don’t want this to turn into a middle school compare and contrast piece, it should be noted that Romero’s zombies share some noticeable differences with Brooks’, andRead More →

In this episode of TGE Watches, Mark, Ryan, and I discuss Christopher Nolan’s epic Dunkirk. We decided to break our summer movie superhero run with quite a different epic film. Two of us enjoyed it and one was quite very disappointed. Official Description Three different perspectives with overlapping time periods: one week on land, one day at sea, and one hour in the air, create a non-linear narrative. Introductory text at the start of the movie says that in 1940, after the invasion of France, hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers had retreated to Dunkirk. As German forces close in, they await evacuation in a seemingly hopeless situation. Our Analysis Our opinionsRead More →
