The Infinity Saga

The Infinity Saga: Iron Man (2008)

The Book Of Marvel – Phase 1, Chapter 1

In the beginning, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was without form and void. And Jon Favreau made Iron Man, and it was so.

In the summer of 2008, my wife and I went to a local drive-in theater to check out two movies: Transformers and Iron Man. We both expected Transformers to be the better of the two options. After all, who knew about or cared about Iron Man at the time? He was a pretty minor Marvel character compared to, say, Spider-Man or the X-Men.

When we left, we both agreed on two things – Michael Bay needed a kick in the balls for the absolute shit fest Transformers turned out to be, and Iron Man was a surprisingly good movie.


I Need To Be Watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine AND SO SHOULD YOU!!!

There are many shows on television which I know I should be watching but just never get around to. Game of Thrones, Star Trek: Discovery, and the Netflix Marvel shows (RIP Daredevil and company) come to mind. Another show which is on that list is Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I’ve heard so much about how entertaining and well written the 99 is, plus there was the drama of the show getting cancelled by Fox after its fifth season, only to be resurrected by NBC just 31 hours later. As with most shows that already have more than one season, though, I find it tough to get started at the beginning as there is so much catching up I need to do.

Well, Brooklyn Nine-Nine just made a very convincing case for me to get on that bandwagon with not one but TWO “action” trailers in preparation for their sixth season and first on NBC!

I know what I’ll be binge watching once I finish with The Gauntlet.

You can watch the first five seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Hulu (subscription required).
