Jurassic World is as solid a summer blockbuster as you could ask for – it’s smart (but not too smart), flashy (maybe a hair too flashy) and filled with great visual effects that never (quite) overwhelm its basically decent heart.
It has an old-fashioned hero, kids in peril, a heroine who goes from stick in the mud to tuchus-kicker, an amoral scientist, an incredibly mercenary would-be visionary and… DINOSAURS!
Netflix’s Daredevil series is something of a groundbreaker. Marvel’s blind superhero has long been a critical favorite and, it seems, the darker the comic got, the more popular it became.
The series, created by Drew Goddard – who wrote the first two episodes and is credited as an executive producer, captures the feel of the versions of the character popularized by the teams of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson and Brian Michael Bendis (Powers) and Alex Maleev. It’s a kind of Mean Streets take on Hell’s Kitchen’s best known costumed hero.
Only three more sleeps until Netflix premieres the 13-episode first season of Marvel’s Daredevil – The Man Without Fear.
Take a look at a trailer for the series that introduces us to Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple – and a little back and forth between Matt (Daredevil) Murdock and Wilson (Kingpin) Fisk. The a lovely look atStick and the young Matt Murdock. Choice stuff!
