Logan: The End of An Era

Yes you heard that right, “Logan” the movie  is Hugh Jackman’s last stand as Wolverine and he went out with a bang. Hugh Jackman has been  playing the role of Wolverine for over 17 years, 17 years wow that’s crazy, just let that sink in. Who do you know has played a longer character other than probably Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in mission impossible. From the moment Rogue saw Wolverine fighting in the cage match in the first X-men movie, we could not have asked for a better person to play this gritty, non heroic character who surprisingly is probably one of the most heroic when it comes down to backing the people he loves and cares for. We saw the transformation of Wolverine throughout the years of his trials and tribulations and Logan shows first hand how old age, and hardship of fighting and losing your friends can take a toll on the body.

There has been so many speculations over these last few months about would the movie be good, will we see flashbacks of the suit, all this stuff then Rotten Tomatoes hit with a 96 percent score for the movie. People lost their minds counting Rotten Tomatoes as the natural score all things good and also with an R rating many people were completely sold from hearing these few things and  from the trailers that were released. I for one was extremely excited for many reasons, but I will share the first reason before I get further into this review. I am a huge Wolverine fan, and I saw the movie was coming out March 3rd no big deal right, but my birthday is March 5th, so that made me so happy like what are the odds one of my comic book characters comes out the weekend of my birthday.

November Offers Moviegoers A Much Needed Escape: Thoughts on Dr. Strange, The Accountant and Arrival (Don’t Worry, We Didn’t Spoil Anything!)

shutterstock_170848148RICEBALL SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

No matter what your views are on the recent U.S. election, we here at RiceBall want you to know that we will always provide an open and inclusive space for all. No matter what color you are, where you come from, what you believe in, or who you love….WE will always welcome and accept you. Nerds, non-nerds, UFOs, whomever! Always spread love over hate.


Sooo, it’s that time of the year where S.A.D has set in for most of us on the east coast, and in 2016 we’re finding it very hard to cope. Not only is it cold out, but it also gets dark at 4pm, holiday season is being forced down our throats (in the nauseating form of pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha), ANNND we’re still dealing with the results of a very emotional election season. I. AM. STRESSED. All I want to do these days is snuggle up on a couch somewhere (most likely as Bae’s inner spoon) and sip a hot, chocolate, possibly alcoholic drink. If you’re anything like me, you’re thinking “How the hell did we get here???” To be honest, I’m more than ready to be done and over with 2016. Worst. Year. Ever. And it’s not even frick’in over yet.

Ugh.

Slowly counting down to when I give the realest “Cheers” of my life on New Year’s Day to a bigger, better and brighter 2017 — I know, just keeping hope alive.

Although I haven’t been in the best of spirits all month, I can say that November movies have been ON POINT! I’ve unapologetically spent every weekend in the theater so far and there’s no stopping me. I’ve become a weekend theater bum, watching as many new movies as I can. It’s been worth it. My $10 have been very well spent, every time.

So, what did I watch? Well…

Hold the Door! The Flash Did What? And X-men Be Vexing Men?! It’s Your RiceBall Recap

Does anyone else feel like summer just came out of nowhere? I mean, a week ago I was freezing my butt off, bundled up in blankets, sweaters, scarves, jackets and whatever else….and today it’s 80 (mofo’in) degrees! I have crazy, humidity hair! Ugh.

monica-geller1

I see spring done gave up, and decided she ain’t gonna be around for all this global warming ish. We were straight cut off this year.

boring tvAnd speaking of cut off, how goes your summer TV watching? Mid-season shows have ended and I’m stuck in limbo surfing channel to channel for a nightly prime time selection. I know it’s summer when my TV yells at me to get the hell off my couch and do something productive.

TV: “Go to the gym!”

Me: Ha! TV, you’re hilarious.

But technically, it’s not summer until all the Game of Thrones eps are over, and we have 4 more of those bad boys! I refuse to delve into my summer TV rut until after GOT is over. Somehow, deep down, I know Netflix will save me, though. Especially with OITNB on the horizon. Yay!

If you missed it, a lot has transpired over the past week or so, specifically with TV and movies. Hot topics, for me, consist of The Flash, Game of Thrones, and (although I hate to admit it) X-men: Apocalypse. Yea, I took time to see it over the weekend, and man, am I disappointed.

But before I get into that, I just wanted to let you know…this is your RiceBall Recap.

Is This the End of Agent Carter?

Agent-Carter-Season-2-banner

What’s up everybody? It’s crazy that it’s already Thursday. This week has really gone by, or maybe I’m just moving slower than usual. But last Tuesday was the Agent Carter Season 2 Finale. It’s crazy. It feels like the show honestly just started, and now Season 2 is over. Wow, that was fast.  But if you haven’t gotten into the show, here’s a little summary… Agent Carter is about Peggy Carter, one of the main contributors to starting what we know now as S.H.I.E.L.D. (one of Marvels most infamous places for guarding information and protecting mutant and inhuman secrets). Now Season 1 started off a bit slow for all those who watched, but when this show got good…it got really good, especially the fight scenes. This left a lot of us intrigued to see another season.

Now Season 2… this season started off so much better than Season 1. Way more action packed and way faster in terms of getting to the action. That first episode of Season 2 was amazing. That episode alone is enough to bring someone in to keep watching. I loved that the writers and everyone did an amazing job with this season and hopefully we will get a Season 3. Hayley Atwell aka Peggy Carter did an amazing job as usual, as this season started with her and Captain Jack Thompson still tracking down Dottie aka Black widow. This leads to a very dope and amazing opening fight scene in the bank’s vault. After this Peggy takes a case in L.A. helping out her former co worker Captain Sousa, who obviously still has feelings for Peggy, and vice versa.

Who is Finn Jones? and Who is Iron Fist?

game-thrones-new-york-premiere-lincoln-center

So in recent news, there was an uproar in the comic book world and on the internet about Netflix and Marvel casting Finn Jones as Iron Fist for the new Marvel Netflix series. Now, I know a lot of people are like, “Finn Jones…who is that?” If you don’t know, he is on Game of Thrones (one of my favorite shows) as Ser Loras Tyrell. If you know Jones from Game of thrones, then you already have a leg up on everyone. He also plays minor roles on British tv. But the problem that escalated over the last week is the fact that many people wanted Iron Fist to be played by an Asian American and not a white actor. If you do not know the story of Iron Fist I suggest you read it thoroughly. But for those lacking in time, I’ll give a summary…

The brightest day and blackest night…for comic book writers

GL
Since the dawn of comics, men, women and children of all colors and creeds have been drawn to the capes and tights depicted in those wonderful four color funny books. Comics throughout their inception in the 30’s, throughout the 50’s, 60’s….. basically to right now, 2016, have been created by white men. Those men would sit in their “bull pen” with their cigars and whiskey and write the adventures of all our beloved heroes and heroines.

AGENTS Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Amazing Opening

agents-of-shield-season-3-142748

Wow… Wow. Wow that is all I have to say about the season Premiere of season 3 of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.EL.D.” I was not expecting that, but to be honest I was expecting this to be a good season opener especially what happened at the end of season 2. For all of those who do not remember the end of season 2 here is a refresher, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra are both on the verge of being dismantled, but Agent Coulson and his team are searching for Daisy aka Skye, who has joined with what we know now as Inhumans, the Inhumans want to contaminate part of the earth to create more mutated humans with  fish oil pill vitamins.  Now this is not successful, but the containers holding the mutated gene falls into the ocean leaving us to wonder what will happen next. But I think the craziest part of this season finale is what happened to Agent Simmons being swallowed up by this unusual artifact Shield has recently been searching for. This leaves everyone’s Jaw open saying how can you just end a season like that. I’ll just let this picture do the talking… Continue reading “AGENTS Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Amazing Opening”
