I’ve decided to kick the can on Dr Strange and here’s how I came to this conclusion.
Not that History and Science are why I go to the MCU- but in weird Episode 6 Up is Down
Among other franchises being liberally borrowed from we have a huge dose of Batman, Philip K Dick’s novels and movies based on them, Twin Peaks, The Matrix, Resident Evil, a growing amount of STARGATE and just a dash of Star Wars
Episode 4 of Moon Knight features continued strong performances from Ethan Hawke and Oscar Issac as well as some cool Twin Peaks-like Moments. It also seemingly rebooted everything to this point

After a confusing string of disjointed episodes there was a LOT riding on the season finale to cement the show into some form of coherence.
This weeks plot is the worst yet- but the episode is actually fun.

In Episode 2 of Loki we got a pretty big dose of stupidy up front and they dropped a new plot device on us. Time- destroying Time-Bombs. No, these are not Time-Bombs as we know them- though they DO have timers and they are bombs. They are in fact Bombs that Erase Time. We again… Continue reading Loki Episode 2 Implications and Review
The new Disney Plus show Loki features the return of Tom Hiddleston in a role he delivered masterful performances playing in the past, great sets and acting from stars who deliver good performances. The jokes mostly land well and the show has a snappy pace. After that praiseworthy things are hard to find. In fact… Continue reading LOKI is a World Breaking Disaster
