To Infinity – Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is a very frustrating film. It sets itself apart from other Marvel films by being about the embracement of new ideas, the opening and expansion of the mind, and the rejection of all that we’ve known and thought before. It’s the spiritual over the physical, the teachings of Eastern ideals and philosophies as … Continue reading To Infinity – Doctor Strange

To Infinity – Captain America: Civil War

Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off with a bang.

To Infinity – Ant-Man

After the massive scale and scope of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios decided to end Phase 2 of the MCU with something much smaller, in the literal sense.

To Infinity – Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World is yet another example of wasted potential. Patty Jenkins was originally the director, but after butting heads with Marvel Studios throughout pre-production, she exited the film, citing creative differences. She would go on to make Wonder Woman for DC. Whoops. Alan Taylor was brought in as her replacement, and in theory, … Continue reading To Infinity – Thor: The Dark World

To Infinity – Iron Man 3

Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe got off to a rocky start. With the massive success of The Avengers, all future installments had to follow it up and answer the question: What happens now?
