The Defenders Trailer Break Down

May 3rd Marvel dropped a pleasant surprise on all of us. It’s no secret that the Netflix division of Marvel has been building up for sometime now the Defenders with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. They finally show us some tidbits of the actual defenders now.

Based off the first few seconds it seems like it’s going to mostly have a the darker tone that we’re used to seeing in Daredevil. From the camera angles to the usage of the song “Smells like teen spirit” by Nirvana.

It kickstarts with Jessica Jones in trouble with the law being integrated by Misty Knight who we’ve seen in Luke Cage season one. With out of the blue Matthew Murdock aka Daredevil coming in to defend her as her lawyer. It seems like the way all of our beloved heroes meet is going to be very natural and not forced at all.

On the other hand the way Danny Rand on Luke Cage cross paths is going to be solely on Claire Temple. Even though she is the one thing connecting all four of our heros directly she did play more of an emotional role to some more than others. With that said it doesn’t seem like those two first encounter is going to be all happy and thrilling.

The aftermath of Daredevil season two and Iron Fist season one are going to play a huge role in the Defenders, because of how heavily they deal with the hand. They even show off Stick who helped Daredevil take on the hand. From the looks of it he might play a role of a mentor or a teacher for them all. They even show Elektra looking as badass as usual.

But the trailer doesn’t confirm that the hand will be the major villain at all. It does tell us that they will be fighting a huge underground criminal syndicate, and whoever they are fighting is something that is much bigger than they are. The Netflix Marvel as a usual tone of being darker than it’s TV and Movies, and it seems to be the same with this one too. The Defenders will launch globally on August 18th, 2017.

Mother Mare: Up and Coming Artists from L.A.

Mother Mare is a dynamic duo that consists of two talented people Robyn Maya the lead singer and guitarist and Julio Quijano the back up singer, guitarist and mixer. These two lovely people here sing straight from their soul in hopes of tugging at your heart. So that way you could connect with there music just like they are.  The best way to describe their music is if M83& MGMT had a baby it would sound something like this.

For Julio here this isn’t his first time ever playing in a band or even being in a crowd he previously toured around LA with a band named Watch for Horses. They were even featured on KROQ “Locals only” section. So it’s important to add he has an idea of how to make it in the music industry.

One of the things that makes this band much different from the others to him is that, he has as much creative freedom as he wants he even stated”When I meet Robyn I realized that I’m going back to what I originally wanted to do”.

Seeing these two perform on stage is almost a show on its own without the music seeing them be so intuned with there music.You’d never guess that they’re just starting off. These two talented musicians crossed path at college while taking a music class together, and taking what knowledge they learned there and implanting it to there liking. But even before they decided to get a formal education when they were both children they loved to toy around with music and exposing themselves as much as they could.

Robyn on the hand always envisioned herself being solo. Working with someone else is a nice change of pace for her compared to working solo b/c, now she has a shoulder to lean on for creative help. She relies her the help of Julio as well to let know what she thinks would be good or not. Julio went on to say this about working with her “This is something really special and unique we have this chemistry”.

The kind of rock that they are is the type that you would. Put some headphones on and just drift away in. It’s relaxing and hearing this could just help you unwind after a stressful day. It helps you escape the realities of the world. When you listen to music you want to connect with yourself more. Most defiantly  Mother Mare will definitely help you do that.

It doesn’t take to much to know that they put a lot of emotions into there music. Just being there and seeing the rawness of it live gave me that connection to the music. Almost as if I understand completely how they felt. The way they present themselves while playing with an indie style that you don’t really get to see too often. While Robyn blows you away with an authentic voice.

The inspiration they got from there name Mother Mare comes from all sorts of places. One being there obsession with space. With the word being the dark spots on the moon. They relate to more b/c they deem themselves to be night people as well. As well as the sea because of the flow of there music. Robyn stated “We resemble deep outer space and the deep ocean too.”

Much of the there inspiration is a kind of splurge of the moment kind of thing “Every song is a different process”. “It just kind of happens you don’t try to make it happen you just, play around with some things”. “It’s all very flowy” said by Robyn.

As of right now they have nothing lined up for the future show wise. But follow them to stay up-to-date on social media on Instagram/Twitter @MotherMareMusic

Legion Renewed for a Second Season

Did you really have any doubt this would happen? Fans of the show more than likely saw this coming from a mile away.  It’s become without a doubt one of FX most successful shows.

In the ratings and with the critics this show is loved. With such a strong fanbase almost mirroring what HBO did for West World late last year. Similarly both of the two shows rely heavily on fan theories and complex narrative that require all of your attention. However Legion has a rich history of lore that can be digged up by picking up and reading one of its comics. The show follows a mutant by the name of David Haller who’s the son of Professor Xavier the leader of the X-Men, and how David is lead to believe he has schizophrenia. But soon realizes the voices in his head our powers and he must learn to channel them. It’s also important to add that this is the first show that Fox and Marvel have teamed up in.

Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television said in a statement that he is proud of where the show is headed.  As well as what Marvel and FX have accomplished. This isn’t the only show that Marvel and Fox have teamed up on, there working on another one directly connected with the X-Men universe as well. It follows the story of a parent and two young mutants on the run from an dangerous government with intentions to harm them.

One of the main problems that Legion tends to have is the editing for the story. Many people throughout the show many people find themselves confused on the pacing of it. Noah Hawley is being accused of of sacrificing substance for style. But he has confirmed that the plot will be better understood by the end of the season.

Legion airs every wednesday nights at 10 p.m

Thors new look in Ragnarok

It’s no secret that the director of the new Thor movie Taika Waititi is taking the prince of Asgard in a new direction. With the third installment to his franchise it’s time to make some serious changes. Just like it’s predecessors Iron man 3 with destroying his suits. Or Captain America with its civil war. Well Thor got just that a huge change no one saw coming a haircut!

Chris Hemsworth told Entertainment Weekly”It’s nice not to have to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning,”. Which is a clear jab at wearing his wig all the time. He then went on to say”It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character.”. Many people have made the connection to him having short hair to the comic series “The Unworthy Thor”. In which Odin deems him unworthy and must prove himself once again to wield the hammer of Thor.

Thor wasn’t the only one who seemed to get the spotlight Jeff Goldblum character as the Grandmaster images were released too. To those who do not know who the Grandmaster is he’s considered one of the oldest living beings in the Marvel universe. He strives on making playing games and travels to known universes and studies them. Once he has studied them well enough he forms his own tournaments and other games, he forces them play with extremely high stakes.
Other news that is confirmed for Ragnarok is Mark Ruffalo will return as the Hulk. As well as Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Thor Ragnarok is set to be released on November 13th 2017.

DCEU is relying heavily on flashbacks/forwards

The DCEU short for the DC Extended Universe has came out and said, it’s going to rely heavily on flashbacks and flashforwards in there upcoming films. Charles Roven the producer of Wonder Woman. In hopes to make the rest of the Justice League stories in check for Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg. So that way there next big project will make sense.

Roven stated “For example, the Justice League movie will take place in a universe that’s post Batman V Superman, just like Batman V Superman takes place post-Man of Steel,’. So for the remainder of the Justice League their individual movies will take place post JL. Just like every movie verse whatever happens in Justice League will affect these characters in there solo films. To fill in the gaps of what happened in between those movies they’re going to use lots of flashbacks/forward so it could all make sense. But this won’t be the main formula for the DCEU.

As of right now we know next to nothing on what will happen in Justice League. Or how this will even cross of to the other members films. But what is certain that all three of these characters will finally make a debut in Justice League on Nov. 17th. As well as Wonder Woman on the 2nd of June.

Resident evil 7 Review

The latest installment to Resident Evil is a horrific masterpiece. This is one of the few horror games that kept me at the edge of my seat in a long time. Capcom really kept true to the original RE roots by staying as a survival horror game but at the same time adding the new first person aspect. Which I might add is the cherry on top of it, it really immerses you in the game.

It constantly forces you to look over your shoulder and make sure you’re safe, even if you already cleared the room. Capcom made sure to keep you scared with sound effects such as wind hitting the doors and knocking over cans etc all the little stuff they add in the game gives it all the more suspense.

One of my favorite nostalgia parts of the game was organizing everything in your backpack just like in the old RE it forces you to be neat and choose what you deem is important. The story was amazing on it’s on leaving you with little to know. All you know is that there’s these crazy red necks trying to kill you and you have to kill them before they kill you. Unraveling the mystery of what has happened to the Baker family was beautiful and with all plot twist that this game throws at you I’m still wondering about the ending, trying to connect all the pieces.

If you love horror games then I can guarantee this is for you I can almost guarantee you’ll love it I can’t wait to go back and replay this game again. Also if you know Resident Evil then you know they also like to keep franchises going so fingers crossed for a RE8 with the same tone as this one.

Rating: 9.5/10
