Netflix Marvel’s The Defenders Series 1 Episode 3 Spoilers Review


Audio spoilers review of the Netflix Original Series Marvel’s The Defenders Series 1 Episode 3 ‘Worst Behavior’.

Official Synopsis:  Four of Marvel’s biggest heroes are each working individually but have one common goal in mind — to save New York City. Burdened with their own personal challenges, Matt Murdock (Daredevil), Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand (Iron Fist) realize that they likely won’t be able to accomplish their goals working solo. That realization leads them to team up and form The Defenders, a supergroup that is more equipped to save the Big Apple than the heroes would be if they continued to work on their own.

The Unspoken Emotions of Dunkirk


Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. Picture’s recent release Dunkirk delivers an intense, yet beautiful story of war.  Writer and director Nolan delivers bomb fragments of dialogue, while shooting audiences with a machine gun of facial expressions and a platoon of sound mixing to depict a journey for survival.

Nolan establishes the primary antagonist in a shot with actor Harry Styles and his newly deceased fellow soldiers with a wide shot behind the young British military man.  Actors Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy appear soon after to converge on Dunkirk.  After more than 90 minutes of an emotion sprint of an obstacle course on sand, the civilians accomplish their mission to evacuate the soldiers.  Once the credits roll, the human heart slows down from a cinematic treat that utilizes cinematic history to tell history.

Dunkirk Synopsis:  “In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.”

Spawn Reboot with Blumhouse Productions


At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, comic book creator Todd McFarland announced that he and Blumhouse Productions will produce a live-action Spawn reboot.  McFarland told Collider’s Steve Weintraub that he expects a production of $10-$12 million.

The focus of the film will be on Spawn and Detective Twitch.  He classified the motion picture under the supernatural thriller genre.  He told fans to expect an ‘R’ rating due to the material and themes, not just language or sex.

State of the Transformers Franchise


In this episode, I discuss the story or lack thereof in the Michael Bay Transformers franchise.

Please share your thoughts on this episode with me on social media:

The following text below is my review of Transformers: The Last Knight:

Hopefully, Transformers: The Last Knight concludes Michael Bay’s tenure as the director of the Transformers’ franchise and Paramount Pictures. ‘Last Knight’ maintains the highest standard in visual effects, but bottom feeds on story execution.

Bay begins the lackluster blockbuster motion picture with a flashback that holds interest at first. Unfortunately, long and pointless flat gags interrupt a potentially epic sequence. Once present day arrives, enter Isabela Moner’s Izabella. A random character, similar to most human characters throughout the film. Mark Walberg’s Cade Yeager returns from Transformers: Age of Extinction to catch audiences up on his life after the events in Hong Kong. A small human inventor protects a race of advanced alien robots from other humans. The one theme to pull from ‘Last Knight’ is that humans are masters and transformers are pets.

The remaining parts of the movie continue the inappropriately timed jokes during potentially epic moments. The majority of screen time involves humans with a film titled Transformers. This fifth installment of the Cybertronians lacks fluidity and depth of characters, whether organic or inorganic. Lack of cohesion is primarily due to several additional new and returning characters. The only possible necessary human is Josh Duhamel’s, Colonel William Lennox.

Open threads surround a surface-level story. Singular dynamic shots, giant explosions, and sweeping large scope camera movements operate as the lipstick on this pig. Transformers: The Last Knight is a sandwich of incoherent table scraps soaked in wax for television fast food commercials.
