When the first Guardians of Galaxy was released in 2014 it felt like a very odd choice for Marvel to make following the success of The Avengers; a sci-fi series featuring a talking tree, a psychotic raccoon, the tubby guy from Parks & Rec., and directed by a guy from Troma? Never should’ve worked. And yet, $770 Million and worldwide praise later, the film did work and serves as one of the highlights of Marvel’s cinematic universe, so no pressure on the sequel.
To get it out of the way quickly, Vol. 2 doesn’t live up to the first, only because the first film had no expectations of it, it came from nowhere, and blew everyone away. While the sequel had the unfortunate luck to come second, it’s still a burst of color and fun, while one of the best standalone MCU films to date.
It’s Time To Check Out of Bates Motel (For Now)
by Nile Fortner
On Bates Motel: The Final Check Out, Vera Farmiga (Orphan, Source Code) said, “I am going to miss the sh*t out of playing Norma Bates.” She also mentions how the show is, “unique, and it’s one of a kind.” Well as a big fan of this series, I, and I’m sure many of you agree, that we will all miss the sh*t out of Bates Motel and it really is so unique and one of a kind.
Series finales often feel awkward, and try too hard to please fans. Sometimes it is like they are rushing to the finish line in a way that leaves audiences confused, wanting more, and dissatisfied. In my opinion, the last two seasons of Bates Motel, are easily the best, and was some of the best television I’ve seen in a very long time. Throughout the series and finale of this show, that I feel like is underrated, we saw how much Norman Bates, played by Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, August Rush), has changed over the course of the show, and we’re reminded just how much has been lost for all of our characters. Everyone of the characters, from Caleb, Chick, Romero, Emma, Dylan, Norma, and of course Norman. Ultimately, Dylan and Emma escape, they seem like they will be happily ever after, and free to start their own family away from the nightmare of family and White Pine Bay.

The highly anticipated premiere of “American Gods” airs this Sunday, April 30th at 9 PM ET/PT on STARZ. “American Gods” posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.
