☆AoS 3×16: Paradise Lost☆

late, and this’ll be short 🙂 yayyyyyyyyy :-/

 

One of the reasons this post will be short is because it was very focused on Gideon Malick, who I hate. So.

 

 

HiveWard and Stephanie Malick

Gideon’s daughter, Stephanie, was in the episode. And she got horrible treatment. She, like her father, was interested in HYDRA. She was basically falling in love with HiveWard. Anyway, so Gideon saw a flash of his death, which was exciting. At one point, it seems Gideon will finally die– but, no Hive kills Stephanie instead. Which is really dumb. Why would they introduce her just to have her killed? Well, for Gideon’s mainpain, of course. Sighs. AoS has a track record of killing of females: Izzy, Jiaying, Kara, Raina, Victoria, Rosalind, and now Stephanie. The annoying thing is that many of them were PoC, and all killed in the same finale. Yay AoS, getting rid of ladies and PoC, all at once! I love this show! Ugh. I’m just hoping they don’t kill Joey or Elena: Elena is another WoC, and Joey is a PoC and the first lgbt+ MCU character (as far as I know, anyway).

 

 
Lincoln, Daisy in background

Daisy and Lincoln went on a mission, where they tried to get info from some guy Lincoln used to know. Basically, Daisy and Lincoln were being p cute, babes. Also, we learned a bit more about Lincoln’s past: he was an alcoholic and almost killed his girlfriend :O He promises Daisy that he’ll never hurt her, though. I love Lincoln. Some people have been comparing him to Ward: the whole promising Daisy they wouldn’t hurt her, but being toxic. I think Lincoln really has changed though.

 

The team got kidnapped, so that’s yikesy. Tonight will be… well, we’ll see!

✰Avengers: Age of Ultron review✰

Hey! So, I saw Age of Ultron on Thurs. I have quite a bit to say on the subject. Before we get started, let me say a few things. 1- I went to a double feature, and didn’t get much sleep the night before, so I was tired during the movie. If I wasn’t so tired I think I would have enjoyed it more. 2- I did enjoy the movie. There were a lot of things I didn’t like, yes– but overall I liked the movie. 3- I was reading people’s reviews and rants about AoU on tumblr, so a lot of my ideas are not from me.

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD

Now, I think I’m going to start with what I didn’t like about the movie.

The main thing I didn’t like was what Joss did with Natasha’s character. In CA:TWS, she had a lot of character development. In AoU, that was all stripped away to make her a flirty love interest. I don’t mind that she is in a romantic plot, but she was acting totally out of character. Some of the time, like when she was with Clint, or when they were all fighting, she seemed like herself. But with Bruce she was different. I think I would have minded the love story less if they had hinted at it before, instead of just throwing it randomly at us. And Bruce falls on top of Nat,,, it’s just– ew.(I mean her boobs were in his face. It was too much) I don’t want to hate on Brucetasha shippers. If you ship Brucetasha, that’s completely fine! And it’s not only because I ship Clintasha, although that is part of it. But it’s the fact that Natasha’s whole role in the movie was to be Bruce’s love interest. Out of all the Avengers, of course it’s the female who gets captured, and of course Bruce rescues her, even though Clint was the one who found out where she was. Again, I have read other’s opinions on this subject and I am using them in this. This next thing especially was not a thing I thought of. She says she’s a monster because she can’t have children. All her scary, dark, traumatic past, was the fact that she was sterilized. Not the fact that she killed innocent people, or anything else. Some normal women can’t have babies either, and that doesn’t mean they’re monsters. She had to be the one to calm the Hulk down. And she wanted to run away with Bruce? That was probably the most ooc thing she did in the movie. It does not seem like she would do that. I am sorry if you are offended by any of this. Feel free to give your opinions in the comments!

Clint’s family. The main reason I didn’t like this was because I ship Clintasha really hard. But it also just came out of nowhere. They could have at least mentioned it in some other movies, but they just threw it in here.

I didn’t like the flashbacks as much as I thought I would. I understand that Thor’s was leading to Infinity War and Ragnerok, but I wasn’t really a fan of his flashbacks. I also wasn’t a fan of the fact that Thor didn’t have that big of a part in this movie, either. And Natasha’s backstory– I wanted more of it. It also focused on “graduation day” a lot, instead of things like her having to kill other girls in the Red Room. I did enjoy getting to know more of her past though, the part with the ballet was cool.

I hated that Pietro aka Quicksilver died. I understand that it fueled Wanda, but still. This was the first movie he was a part of, and he died it in. I really enjoyed his character, and I wish there had been more of him.

Now, let me talk about the things I did like.

Clintasha. Clintasha obviously wasn’t romantically canon in this movie, as much as I wished it would be. But it was platonically canon, and I could imagine it to be romantic. At the start, Clint gets shot and Natasha calls his name and goes to him, which gave me shippy feels. Also after Wanda messed with everyone’s heads, and Natasha was acting different because of it, and Clint had his arm around her… And how she interacted with the kids was great. They were even going to name their kid after her… God, I ship them so hard. Also when he was recovering and she joked about how “pretending to care about him really brought the team together” or something along those lines and he smirked and ughhhhh. Feels. At the very start of the movie when he got shot, and she called his name, and he said he didn’t have a girlfriend, I hoped Clintasha might have a chance. Sadly, I was wrong.

I loved the party scene, that was one of my favorite scenes in the whole movie. The team joking around was great. I loved how Helen Cho was saying she’d go if Thor went. And I love how Maria coughed and said “testosterone”. And I loved how Tony and Thor were comparing wives. I mean, it’s not like they’re objects to be compared, but I was glad to know they still existed.

I love love loved when Steve said “language” and everyone kept teasing him about it, that was one of my favorite parts of the movie. And when Tony was hoping there would be a secret door.. I loved all the comedy in this movie!

The twins were pretty awesome. The movie didn’t really mention the fact that they were held away in cells, which we saw in CA:TWS, but their characters were amazing. I was a big fan of Pietro, and him and Clint are one of my fave brotps. Wanda messing with everyone’s minds was cool, and I liked how aware she was of everything. She knew things about everyone, obviously because she was messing with their brains, but yeah it was cool.

Ultron was an awesome villan. He was truly weird and creepy and crazy. The fact that he attacked Jarvis, and how much he could learn in the first few minutes of his “life”. I thought he was a cool villain, definitely a villain I wanted to hate.

Vision was pretty cool, him and Thor being buds was pretty awesome. Caped crusaders right there. I hope we’ll get to see more of him in future movies, I want to see more of his character.

Well, that’s all I have for now. Feel free to comment what you thought!

☆AoS 2×15: One Door Closes☆

So, I’m late, but better late than never!

This episode had a lot of flashbacks. But, I loved them. We got to see why Bobbi and Mack joined “the real SHIELD” and we got to see more of Isabelle Hartley! I really wish she hadn’t died now ;-;. I’ve heard some people hating on Bobbi & Mack, though 😦 People have said that this “real SHIELD” only tries to stop Coulson, while normal SHIELD tries to stop HYDRA and protect people. And I get that, I really do. The “real SHIELD” isn’t helping people right now, not really. But Bobbi and Mack are good people. They might not be doing the right thing right now, but they think they are. They are trying to help, they are trying to be good people, they are trying. They might be making the wrong choices, and they might have a viewpoint that is considered “wrong”, but they are a part of “real SHIELD” because they believe that’s the right thing. They chose “real SHIELD” when HYDRA infiltrated SHIELD, when no one knew who to trust. When their world was falling apart, “real SHIELD” seemed like the best option. Maybe now they have their doubts, but they chose their path when their planned paths fell apart. So they have an emotional attachment to that choice. Bobbi didn’t want to hurt Skye, and when she thought Skye was going to get hurt, she yelled her name. Mack jumped on top of Fitz to protect him from “real SHIELD” busting in. Mack and Bobbi may not be doing the “correct” thing, but they are trying to protect their friends, and that’s important.

On a different note, in the flashback when Bobbi said to give the “Franny’s Saloon” keychain thing to Lance, I died. I need to know more of their backstory! I love that Hunter and Coulson are going to try to fix SHIELD. I’ve been liking Hunter a lot more lately. I always liked him well, but now I absolutely adore him.

I wish we had more of Fitzsimmons and Skye. They are important characters, and they deserve bigger plotlines. I wasn’t sure how I felt about Gordon before this episode, but I definitely like him now. I think he’ll be a good mentor to Skye, and I’m glad that she’ll meet some more inhumans. Maybe she’ll learn to accept and love herself. Gordon’s connection with her mother will, I think, be a big possibility for Gordon and Skye to bond. When Skye was changing the water’s stream, she seemed to like her powers, and I’m hoping she’ll feel great about her powers more.

I’m excited for the next two episodes! This coming Tuesday Skye will meet Lincoln, another inhuman, and the episode after that we get to learn more about May’s past! I’m so excited!

TTYL
