Spider-Man FFH/ Stranger Things S3 Spoiler Review

With both commercial and critical successes of Spider-Man: Homecoming leaving high expectations, the second film, Far From Home arrives in the massive wake of Avengers: Endgame. Though Tom Holland’s much praised portrayal of everyone’s favorite web-head seemed to have nothing to prove, it would also appear quite the contrary with lots to prove (due to fanboy constant demands for pitch perfect authenticity of character). We at TBC_afp are no different in that regard as we also measure up. Swing in to find out! #spiderpun

The Thing vs Starman: John Carpenter Retrospective

John Carpenter over decades has been commonly referred to as a master of the cinematic horror action genre. Yet, In fact, filmmakers such as James Cameron, Quentin Tarantino, Guillermo del Toro to name a few represent a generation who have been influenced by Carpenter’s eclectic style and in some case armed only with minimal equipment and vision for storytelling. 

TBC_afp deep dives into two of Carpenter’s most iconic Sci-Fi pieces and in some respects, underrated works: The Thing (1982) and Starman (1984). 

Sit back with some oatmeal and pie and enjoy!

Game of Thrones Finale (Spoiler Discussion)

After 8 years and seasons, HBO’s groundbreaking fantasy drama epic, Game of Thrones comes to an end. As the show’s plot advanced even further ahead of George R. R. Martin’s books, audiences held their breaths in anticipation to the fates of the great houses and characters of Westeros as if it were a modern day soap opera. And for one concluding night on May 19, 2019, those of us who watched the finale became united fanboys for an evening… or did we?

AVENGERS: ENDGAME (SPOILER REVIEW)

As it’s currently reached the billion dollar behemoth status, Avengers: Endgame, sequel to Avengers: Infinity War (both directed by brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo) is the stamped culmination marking 11 years of cinematic triump and world building by Marvel Studios. With great pleasure and delight, TBC_afp reviews this massive film chronicling World’s Mightiest Heroes, thus closing a monumental chapter yet making room for some new stories… until next time we hear the battlecry: #AVENGERSASSEMBLE

SHAZAM! (Spoiler Review)

A famous writer once penned the line “What's in a name? That which we call a rose; By any other name would smell as sweet” in order to evoke the idea that what really counts isn’t just how a thing is labeled. Rather that true heroic significance and character comes from within or that our actions define us. In SHAZAM!, starring Zachary Levi as DC Comic’s sometimes anti-Superman analog and child’s-eye-view superhero commentary (commonly know through the source material as Captain Marvel), WB/ DC Cinematic Universe attempts to deliver at the Box Office again at the wake of Aqua-success, The World's Mightiest Mortal. Follow TBC_afp as they take that leap of faith and call out SHAZAM!

Captain Marvel (Spoiler Review)

It is Marvel Studio’s tenth anniversary “phase” build up and we are introduced to Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. With actress Brie Larsen portraying the character lead as Marvel’s biggest heavy, there is without hesitation both excitement from fans and controversy at a trolling level. While, a week into Captain Marvel’s theatrical release and already a half billion dollars at the box office, it’s safe to assume the franchise’s security  though conversations, sometime ignited by inspiration or gender politics rages on...

Doctor Who Special

Originally recorded on December of 2018, TBC_afp and invited Guests got together for discussion about a special fanboy topic spanning close to 60 decades. As the subject has been referred to as “The Oncoming Storm”,  “The Bringer of Darkness” or “Last of the Time Lords”,  this Hero is usually (and humbly) referred to as The Doctor. So, if you’ve been living under a rock either of recent or for the past 56 years still asking “Doctor Who?”, whether you’re a diehard Whovian or just a fair weather fan, then prepare some tea (with perhaps some fish fingers and gravy, biscuits even) as we traverse through Time and Space celebrating The Doctor of BBC’s Doctor Who.
