Iron Fist Review

Finn Jones in Iron Fist (2017)

The Netflix series have recently been hitting a new high after the joint collaboration of The Defenders. Jessica Jones had a great character development in her second series and Luke Cage was able to continue its impressive stride with a great second season as well. After an underwhelming first season, Danny Rand is back in the second season of Iron Fist, ready to use his glowing fist to smash crime.

The second season of Iron Fist focuses more on the relationship between Danny Rand, and his former friend Davos who feels Danny is wasted as the immortal Iron Fist and would use the fist and title in more productive ways. The show also explores the relationship between Danny and his girlfriend Colleen Wing as well as catching up with the Meachum siblings and the on going gang wars within this Marvel New York universe.

The second season was a lot more fun and enjoyable compared to the first season, where it felt like Danny Rand spent the majority of the time trying to convince himself, as well as the audience, that he was the Iron Fist. But with this new season, it feels like all the characters have settled and so the story has enough space to flow properly and breathe.

Finn Jones shows that he can have a bit more fun with his character and feels less rigid in his acting in the show. Sacha Dhawan who plays Davos was absolutely brilliant and I personally loved his characterization, in which in the context of the lore, he would be the perfect Iron Fist but has taken a path that leads to more bloodshed than salvation. Alice Eve plays the new character Mary Walker and is absolutely brilliant, along with Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, who really got to shine a bit more in the second season.

Now with regards to the costume, we get to see more variations of the original, which I think is another improvement made from the first season. I can’t wait to see Danny Rand and Davos cosplayers squaring off in the K’un L’un battle wear, but also I’ve always wondered, after watching both seasons how to make the glowing fist. I have seen before, cosplayers use a form of lighting in gloves, but it would be cool to try and use maybe an LED light held in the hand, as well as a dark scene to really give off the impression.

Yeah I may very well be planning a Davos cosplay very soon! but go and watch this season of Iron Fist! It’s worth the watch!

Other Film Reviews
11 years in the making, over 20 movies and it finally comes down to this. We’re in the endgame now. And boy….was it a hell of an endgame. Now obviously I will try to make this a spoiler free review, but this is a hell of a movie to try and unpack without going too specific so I promise I will do my best. Now the best way to summarise this movie is that everyone that’s left after the snap happens is trying to find their way through this new world that has been created by Thanos, that is until someone comes up with an idea that could change everything…….yeah that’s vague enough not spoil anything Everything about this movie was just perfect. The pacing, the music, I know I already mentioned the performances but the beats each character hits, hits home so amazingly! Ok. This movie. IS AMAZING!!!! Before I even talk about this movie, I’m gonna tell you that you NEED to do a marathon before getting to this movie. There are so many hints and nods to the past movies. Along with that, this movie is literally like a fan service to us, the ones who have stuck to this movie franchise over the past decade and a bit. The performances from everyone involved were at top level. There are minor plot holes, but honestly, this movie delivers so much to the fans that you genuinely don’t care, and I can tell you now, the last hour of this movie is the best cinematic piece in comic movie history. Hands. Down. And when it comes to cosplay, there is only thing i can say, and that is a huge thank you and congratulations. All weekend i’ve seen cosplayers doing what they love for the movie franchise they love and it has been to raise so much money for charities and it just shows how much cosplayers love to give back, not just to the community but to people in need as well. Bottom line. You need to stop reading this and go watch this movie! Like this:Like Loading... [...] Read more...
This remake centres around Harbour’s Hellboy working with his father Ian McShane and facing off against Milla Jovovich’s Numie who is an eternal living blood queen who wants demons and monsters to take over the world. Hellboy must beat her with the help of Sasha Lane’s Alice and Daniel Dae Kim’s Major Ben Daimio. A lot of people were a tad sceptical when a Hellboy remake/reboot was announced, however, the pictures of David Habour surfaced of him in the full Hellboy make up which raised all the excitement for the project! And so, the movie hit theatres with a lot of expectation! This movie took full advantage of the 18 rating, ramping up the gore that you would find in the comics. Now comparing this movie to the first Hellboy movie back in 2004, because of course it was gonna be compared, where the 2004 version opted for more storytelling and world advancement, this movie decided to shy away from more storytelling and went for adding more action. Most people do enjoy this but I personally didn’t like this. The movie was hindered by lack of story and some CGI that looked incredibly bad. This CGI looked better placed back in 1998 it was that bad. Now don’t get me wrong, David Harbour’s performance was brilliant, I was a tad unsure with regards to some of the prosthetics but in the overall look, they were amazing in the movie, its just a shame that some of the other effects seemed unfinished and the gore itself became a bit too much at some times. The movie was a fun experience to go see, I would suggest going for it but don’t expect an amazing movie. Now the prosthetics are amazing for Harbour’s Hellboy and I think some of the best body paints to use for cosplays would be a good thing to speak about. One of the best paints I’ve used is mehron, the amount of variety you can get is amazing and it seems to go on quite well. There are also many other products you can grab from other places, as long as you can grab some body paint setter that will help keep the paint on for longer. There are many cosplayers who have done some amazing Hellboy cosplays that have used some excellent paint! I can’t wait to see some more amazing cosplays using some stellar paintwork!

how goes it fellow nerds, geeks and the like! Well you’ll be hearing alot from me this month, with quite a few films coming out, and a final season that I hope to review at the end. So let’s start with another installment from DC, after their very big success with Aquaman, Shazam! Shazam revolves around 13 year old, or basically 14 year old Billy Batson, who is essentially recruited by an old wizard and passes on his powers to him to protect the world against the 7 deadly sins and to carry on the legacy of wizards that came before him. Unfortunately, Billy runs into his first super villian in Dr. Sivana and has to take him down with his new found powers. I have got to say, this movie was really good, I feel like the DC movie universe has turned a new corner and has a new freedom with their movie making. Asher Angel who plays Billy Batson as his younger self had a great chemistry with the other young members of the cast, especially Jack Dylan Grazer who plays Freddie Freeman, who helps Billy as he takes on this transformation. Zachary Levi, i’ll be honest, I could never see as a super hero, and yet he handled it brilliantly! Showing the power that he possesses, while using his funny side to portray 14 year old stuck in a man’s body who has superpowers. Mark Strong who plays Dr. Sivana is very compelling as a supervillian. All in all, this movie was incredibly fun and lighthearted, while still maintaining a sense of danger and dread. The costumes from this movie are really awesome as well. obviously due to this movie being in production for a while, there have been many set photos and its been amazing seeing people’s take on how to do the lightning on Shazam’s chest! From using yellow foam, to people using the same kind of lighting mechanism that can be used. What is also amazing to see is using red puff painting to add the small design and details to the suit. Hopefully when a sequel comes, and oh yes, there most definitely has to be a sequel to this movie because it was great, hopefully we can see the long awaited debut of Black Adam, which can add to the cosplay list for alot of people! I genuinely suggest you go and see this movie, DC have finally hit their stride with their movies and hopefully they will continue get better with the freedom the directors have.
