We change course this week to honor the man of Marvel, Stan Lee. After he passed away Monday, at the age of 95, we decided to push Our DCEU Justice League pitch to December so we could spend some time talking about one of the most influential people of the 20th and 21st centuries. Stan Lee likely contributed more to comic book and superhero culture than any other single person, so we decided to talk a bit about his life and what it meant to us. 

We still talk news though, including the new Toy Story 4 teasers, the first Detective Pikachu trailer, and The Mandalorian casting… and don’t forget ShazamGate ’18 with a brand new shirt design available right now on our TeePublic store.

SH S3E09: Logan – The Big Goodbye

The Grid Ranks: X-Men Films

Well, we’ve already ranked the films of the MCU, so now it’s time to rank the X-Men films (I’m not including all of the Fox films simply because no one wants to count the Fantastic Four debacles.) If you count all the films with an X-Man in it, you have 9 total. Ready? Here we go!

9. X-Men Origins: WolverineMV5BMTI2MTgyNjExM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzU4MjkyMg@@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,675,1000_AL_

It’s not difficult to place this film. It was just absolutely awful.  Between the poor casting choices (why in the world would you cast a member of the Black Eyed Peas? Ever?) and the impeccably dismal CGI on the claws (and everything else), there’s really no reason to watch this. They even sewed the Merc with the Mouth’s mouth shut. They literally removed the one thing about a character that made him famous just to disguise the fact that they couldn’t pay for Ryan Reynolds for more than one scene. It’s a masochistic superhero film that will one day be regarded as a generation’s Batman and Robin, only without the irony.

Official Ranking: 1 sad little broken bone claw

8. X-Men: The Last StandMV5BMjI1NTg2ODA2Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDc2MjEzMw@@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,676,1000_AL_

Again, not very difficult to place this one. It had poor lines, cinematic choices, and utilization of characters.  While finally including more screen time for Colossus and making Angel visually stunning, the damn thing killed off Cyclops, Professor X, and Jean Grey, all in horrible ways.  The Dark Phoenix saga was an absolute joke and the “cure” nonsense was done so horribly. Let’s just move on and forget this was thing.

Official Ranking: 2 unnecessarily brutal X-Men deaths and none of them mine…sigh

7. X-Men: ApocalypseMV5BMjU1ODM1MzYxN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTA4NDE2ODE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,676,1000_AL_

From here on out, all the films are relatively good films, so as we move on, one will just barely edge out the other. The latest X-Men installment takes our 7th spot because of it’s dim addition to the new trilogy. You can read my full review here, but mostly it’s a film with much more spectacle than substance. It sets up for the likes of Sophie Turner and Tye Sheridan to take over, which may be amazing, but we can’t give this movie a pass for what future films might do with it.

Official Ranking: 3 Horsemen short of a great X-Men movie

6. X-MenMV5BOTU3MzA3ODYyM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDgwNzc3NjE@._V1_SY1000_SX672_AL_

The first film in the current franchise was phenomenal at the time. It gave all of us fans hope. Director Bryan Singer took a world that was far fetched and made it come to life. He had brilliant casting choices on his side, making it almost impossible for us to see anyone else play Wolverine (and, at the time, Professor X and Magneto). The movie’s downfall was Rogue. She was nothing like the strong, badass woman we had come to know in the comics. She was a mousy weakling that I still like to pretend wasn’t there.

Official Ranking: 4 main mutants that we’ll see for the next 6 years from a franchise with over 100

5. The WolverineMV5BNzg1MDQxMTQ2OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTk3MjAzOQ@@._V1_SX674_CR0,0,674,999_AL_

Not all sequels can improve upon the source material, but this one had nowhere to go but up, in my opinion. Watching Hugh Jackman take on Japan was a much needed fresh look into the franchise.  It was the first X-Men film to take place outside of North America (which is really weird considering how racially diverse the X-Men have always been). Bringing in all new characters and creating an interesting mutant world, it’s an absolute shame it’s been all but forgotten by everyone else.

Official Ranking: 5 good reasons not to watch Origins

4. X-Men: First ClassMV5BMTg5OTMxNzk4Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTk1MjAwNQ@@._V1_

The first film in the new trilogy sparked some life back into the franchise as a whole after The Last Stand and Origins almost killed it.  Director Matthew Vaughn created an interesting mix of familiar and new characters that brought back the enjoyment of the films. The first go around for McAvoy, Fassbender, and Lawrence alike, each of them received high praise for their work and the inclusion of Kevin Bacon meant they were not playing around.

Official Ranking: 6 teenage kids picking their own sweet code names

3.  X-Men: Days of  Future PastMV5BNjk3MGZhMjEtOTM4NC00NzE2LTk2NzctZDc4YTUwN2E3NDhhXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDc2NjEyMw@@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_

This movie was absolutely fantastic. It merged both original trilogy cast and new trilogy cast, created a detailed and dramatic plot line, and managed to not make time travel as convoluted as it could have been.  The new mutants added to the future timeline were so well done that it’s an absolute shame we won’t see them again. Peter Dinklage as Bolivar Trask was a brilliant casting job and finally seeing the Sentinels was a long time coming. If the entire plot didn’t yet again revolve around Wolverine, it would have been that much better.

Official Ranking: 7 amazing mutant plot lines that didn’t screw things up

2. DeadpoolMV5BMjQyODg5Njc4N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzExMjE3NzE@._V1_SY1000_SX686_AL_

You have to admit it; this movie was the absolute best. You wanna know why it’s not the number 1 spot? Well it is an overall superior film. It takes the familiar tropes of lost love, revenge, wrongfully disfigured hero and makes them fresh with the humor of the comics. What Wolverine  Origins did to destroy the character Deadpool, Deadpool  recovered everything lost and then some. It’s quite remarkable how undeniably well done the movie is when translating a character that almost got too bloated for its own good over the last few years. To think this movie wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been for the love that the fans and Ryan Reynolds has for the character. I only placed it at number 2 because, while perfectly defining Deadpool, the film doesn’t perfect define the X-Men.

Official Ranking: 8 toasty and sexy chimichangas

1. X-Men: UnitedMV5BNDk0NjYxMzIzOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwMTc1MjU3._V1_

The opening sequence to the film maintains what is arguably the best opening sequence of a comic book film to date.  After the first film, we were all eager with what X-Men would be included in the inevitable sequel and we were not disappointed. Alan Cumming made a daring Nightcrawler and Kelly Hu’s Lady Deathstrike still shares one of the best fight scenes with our favorite clawed Canadian since. Magneto’s escape from his plastic prison is one of the most brutal death scenes I’ve ever seen and a technologically impressive use of CGI to this day.  It was the least annoying Jean Grey and Rogue have ever been, which is a feat all by itself considering. There is just so much good wrapped up in this film that I could go on about it for quite some time.

Official Ranking: 9 BAMFs across the X-Men world (BAMF is the onomatopoeia used to describe the sound Nightcrawler makes in the comics when he teleports, but it works as the acronym too, so that’s cool).

How do you feel about The Grid’s rankings? Did we hit the nail on the head? Where would you change it? Comment below!

Deadpool Blu-Ray out May 10th!

Greetings muchachos and muchachettes of the Fourth Estate, DanPool here!
(What the !@#$ is a “DanPool”? I thought this was about Deadpool…)
[Maybe it’s a pool that belongs to some guy named ‘Dan’?]

Can you both be quiet? I’m trying to write a post about the new Deadpool BluRay.
(Who’s Ray, and why is he so Blue?)
[Da Boo Dee Da Boo Die!!!]

What you are currently looking at is an intro into the little world of Deadpool!
(But, not that little, really. I mean, it’s a good size…)
[Size doesn’t matter anyways, right?]

Deadpool

Deadpool_VHS_Announce_4_rgbGuys, we are getting off track here.
(I’d rather get on a Nordic Track, those things will tone your buns)
[Buns of steel, or at least Sourdough.]

I’ve stolen some secrets from Fox studio, using a mixture of Blades, Explosives, and some Special Hugging!
*The Management Does Not Endorse Theft, Explosives Use, Or  “Special Hugging” – –
Enough with the sidebars already!
(Wow, you are getting really testy!)
[Testes, he he..]

Hey, if you looked like Ryan Reynolds crossed with a Shar-Pei, you’d understand!
(You put that mask on, on purpose.)
[It’s not even Deadpool, it’s just a crappy Freddy Kreuger mask…]

Deadpool

Obviously, I’m not going to get anywhere with these two commenting on everything, and since I can’t find their off switches, I present to you my ode to Deadpool!
(You can definitely, find my On switch, if you know what I mean!)
[You wrote an ode? What else did you have to do to get this gig?]

 

H is for Humorous, sparkling wit
E is for Enigmatic, deeply fascinating
Y is for Yes, always believing in yourself
!

D is for Diligent, conscientious in duty
E is for Efficient, succeeding at tasks
A is for Adventurous, leaping into the unknown
D is for Devoted, unwavering faithfulness
P is for Phenomenal, an amazing person
O is for Open-hearted, filled with generosity
O is for Observant, keenly perceptive
L is for Loyal, a worthy friend

B is for Beautiful, Like prettyface Vanessa
L is for Learned, mastery of knowledge
U is for Uber, simply outstanding, and a great taxi service. Just ask Dopinder. He’s Dope!

R is for Romantic, the heart of a poet
A is for Affable, instantly likeable
Y is for Youth, eternally young at heart

C is for Colossus, he’s really shiny!
O is for Original, refreshingly so
M is for Maximum Effort, doing your best
E is for Excellent, of the finest character
S is for Sensational, ever exciting

O is for Outstanding, excelling beyond others
N is for Noteworthy, having remarkable acheivements

M is for Motorcyclists, beheaded with a chain
A is for Ajax, Whose real name is Francis
Y is for Yearning, a thirst for vengeance

1
0
T is for Tasteful, odes of style
H is for Hip, ahead of the times
!

Deadpool
Please remember that this poem pales in comparison to the actual movie. Which you should totally see!
(Yeah, it’s a really crappy poem, it doesn’t even rhyme!)
[Are there any people who still haven’t seen this… Bzzzt..]

Finally, I found the Off Switch!
As I was saying…
Based on Marvel Comics’ version of insanity personified, DEADPOOL gives a segue and flashback infused tall-tale of mercenary Wade Wilson, after he is subjected to terrible experiments, gains a red suit (to hide the blood from the bad guys) and begins a rampage of vengeance!
Starring Ryan Reynolds, who has been trying to get this movie made since ‘Origins’ came out, mainly to clean that stain from his record.

“In the comic book world, Deadpool is a man of our time with the ability to spout just the right thing, in terms of pop culture reference, at the worst possible moment.” – Ryan Reynolds
Tim Miller makes his feature film directorial debut on DEADPOOL. But, let’s talk about the movie a bit more.

Ok, I kind of lost my train of thought. There’s lots of action, adventure, comedy, and a love story thrown in for good measure. Also, Explosions!

Seriously, if you haven’t seen this movie by now, pre-order the Blu-Ray, and you’re welcome! It comes out on May 10th.

Criminal Movie: A Review

Criminal Review

I’d like to start this review by saying the movie Criminal is complicated, to say the least. It almost feels like a few movies put together.
I really wanted to like it from the beginning.
That being the case, I’ve split this review into different parts;
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

The Good:
This movie has one of the most original premises I’ve seen in a while. Essentially, imagine an evil version of Billy Bob Thornton from Sling Blade wakes up with the memories of Jason Bourne. Would he still be evil? This premise kept me in my seat.
This movie has the largest assortment of actors who have been in comic book movies this side of an X-men sequel. Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Gal Gadot, and Gary Oldman. And, those are just the ones on the poster. Needless to say, their acting is superb, they totally embodied the characters that they portrayed.

 

The Bad:
Where should I start? Criminal starts with a LOT of jump cuts from city to city, person to person. It’s kind of a spy thriller so it makes sense, but, you really need to pay attention to what is going on.  One of the most interesting characters is killed off in the first half of the movie, which I thought was a poor choice, as far as story is concerned. The main character, played by Kevin Costner, is not a likable guy. He does some stuff at the beginning of the movie that almost had me walking out, almost. Throughout the movie, his character changes immensely, but, it’s still unnerving.
There is a little girl who accepts this character almost immediately, which is also unnerving, as she has no idea who he is, and her mother has absolutely no reason to trust him at all. These scenes could have been better explained, in my opinion.
Gal Gadot is not given nearly the screen time that she deserves and her character was handled poorly.

FIN02_Criminal_1Sht_Payoff_VF_s

The Ugly:
Shaky Cam, Shaky Cam everywhere. If you have trouble with this, be aware. Also, I was expecting Kevin Costner’s character to bust out some Kung Fu, or Krav Maga, but, the best we get is prison moves and brute force. Some of the more violent scenes are very graphic and can be disturbing to sensitive viewers.
In addition, there was a whole subplot about guys who could be Bond villains, computer programming, and nuclear missiles. These were wholly unnecessary in my opinion. Overall, this felt like most other recent Kevin Costner movies, such as The Postman and Waterworld, both of which I enjoy to this day, but, mainly when they are on cable. So, this movie may end up as a stocking stuffer from the bargain bin at your local Wally World.

TLDR;
If you enjoy movies with interesting plots, that are well-acted and feature some big names, Criminal is a good romp.
If you like action scenes and explosions, you will enjoy Criminal.
If you have trouble with shaky cam and you don’t enjoy hasty jump cuts, Criminal might be a movie to skip.

Oh yeah, and Ryan Reynolds is in this movie. Who knew?

Criminal Movie: A Review

Deadpool – A Spoiler-Free Review

If you hadn’t noticed, a little movie called Deadpool destroyed box office records this weekend. In three days it made back its budget three fold. For a few days, it held 100% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s received good review after good review from a variety of sources. This one, is no different.

Deadpool renewed my faith in Deadpool. Somewhere in the 2000’s, he became my least favorite character. He was the mascot for all the comic book fans I hated. He was overexposed and overrated, which made the realization of his movie a very apprehensive undertaking for me as a fan.

I’m a Marvel fan. I want the movies to do well. It does no good when they bomb. Even though I went into Deadpool utterly nervous for the mess that could unfold, I was very quickly set as ease.

Deadpool

Deadpool is a labor of love. Every minute on screen was hewn from the hard work of the director, Tom Miller, or Deadpool champion, Ryan Reynolds. He especially has done everything in his power for the last 11 years to get this movie made in the absolute best version possible. And it shows. For the first time since I saw Reynolds in The Nines, I could see his true acting talent come through. He’s such a talented actor that he has a natural charisma to coast through comedies, where the line between Reynolds and character is blurred. That doesn’t happen here. Reynolds isn’t rehashing Van Wilder; he’s Wade Deadpool Wilson inside and out. He fulfills every aspect of the character: the quirks, the tragedies, the love, the skills. He does it all. And that’s what we needed in a Deadpool movie just for it to be enjoyable, let alone, good.

Deadpool - Wade and Vanessa

The best part of the film is the existence of it. I know that’s such a weird thing to say, but it’s true. It didn’t worry about diversified casting, passing the Bechtel test, or what awards it could qualify for this upcoming season. They didn’t care what characters they included, whether or not they were locked up in Marvel contract bull, or which powers they could CGI in. They just made a good comic book movie. And they did so unapologetically.

Deadpool - Negasonic Teenage Warhead Brianna Hildebrand

Its existence also proved that rated R comic book films are wanted, if not needed. Certain characters of notoriety warrant being done correctly. Sometimes that means admitting the focus is on adult characters and continuing despite a sacrifice in the merchandise pull from the kids demographic. It proved women don’t need a romance angle to see comic book films and comic book films can have a romance angle that helps the story without feeling forced. It proved good things come all year round and we don’t have to wait until summer for some good films.

Please, don’t take my word for it. Go see the movie for yourself. Take a date. Grab some tacos. Watch some much needed vulgarity and violence. You won’t regret it.

The Grid Rating Saucer 5\5

Deadpool – A Spoiler-Free Review

SH S1E3 – Deadpool’s Apocalypse

In Episode 03 of Screen Heroes we talk about the new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer along with our thoughts on the soon to release Deadpool film.

This past week, FOX released the first trailer and actual footage from the upcoming Marvel Comics-based film, X-Men: ApocalypseApocalypse is the sequel to the 2014 film, X-Men: Days of Future Past which saw our mutant heroes fighting for the future with the help of Wolverine. Apocalypse takes place in the 80s with our younger mutant heroes a little bit older. Raven appears to be a good guy now as well as a lot less blue plus Magneto once again pushes the limits of his friendship with Professor X who… actually becomes bald at some point in the film! My favorite shot in the whole trailer.

After breaking down the first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, we switch gears to a more controversial and adult Marvel Comics character, Deadpool. The new Deadpool film is slated for a February 12th release and looks to be a perfect role for once DC Comics superhero actor, Ryan Reynolds.

Also, don’t forget that we’ve done some re-branding! We are now The Grid Daily, so follow us on Twitter @grid_daily and Instagram @griddaily or hit up our main website griddaily.com.
