Before we announce the winners of the 2017 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Netflix’s The Punisher has an amazing ensemble, but possibly the most intriguing castmember is Amber Rose Revah. First of all, she’s done everything from an LGBT cult film, I Can’t Think Straight, to House of Saddam to Indian Summers and more, more, more. […]

There is a lot to say about Black Panther. News agencies have been reporting the stunning streak the film has had at the box office, clearing $500 million in it’s opening week (and $700 million by the 2nd weekend after opening). Education advocates point out how important it is for young people to see representation […]

*moderate spoilers ahead* Some of my earliest memories of the Marvel comics character ‘The Punisher’ come from the old PlayStation 2 game. A gritty third-person shooter where you could have Frank Castle (who, in this incarnation, stood at well over six feet tall and wore a flowing black trenchcoat) kill people the old-fashioned way, or […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Episode Four: Who Needs You has a serious identity crisis going on: at first, it seems like one of the most legitimately episodic adventures do date, with our heroes trapped underground and on the run from rock-eating space worms. While the change in scenery from temples was nice, the scenario felt […]

There’s a distinct problem starting to rear its head in the Guardians series and unfortunately it’s becoming more pronounced as the game goes along: everyone blames Star-Lord for everything, no one takes responsibility for anything, and all the characters are overwhelmingly selfish. There are a few exceptions to this, Rocket apologizing for being a dick […]

*several spoilers below* I spend this weekend watching Netflix’s The Defenders from the comfort of my squashy red armchair, alternating between chuckling at Krysten Ritter’s facial expressions and groaning whenever Finn Jones gets melancholy. By the end of it, I had developed a sort of chuckle that was half-groan: an exhalation of joy that was […]

With great power comes great responsibility: happily, Spider-Man: Homecoming understands that with YET ANOTHER REBOOT of a beloved super hero ALSO comes great responsibility…and they more than live up to it, with an intimate, clever, entertaining, and faithful Spider-Man adventure that is a breath of fresh air in Marvel’s now very crowded super hero line-up. […]

After an exemplary first episode, Telltale stumbles a bit on the second, delivering an interesting, if somewhat less polished chapter in their Guardians tale. *Full spoilers follow* Having last left our heroes with Star-Lord having returned from the dead, thanks to our trusty McGuffan The Eternity Forge, we are thrust immediately into a space escape, […]

*some mild spoilers below* Let’s be honest with ourselves – a full third of the reasons people want to see the second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is Baby Groot. Ever since the end of the first movie, people have been obsessing over the little guy. We loved him as a loveable […]

Telltale Games are known for their tough decisions; but here there was no question. I started kicking the corpse along with Rocket, while taunting the defeated super villain. Gamora was kinda pissed about it, but it was worth it. From start to finish, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Game – Episode One: Tangled […]

The My Entertainment World Podcast is back with an all-new episode dissecting the trailer for the latest instalment of the X-Men film franchise. Coming to theatres on March 3rd, Logan promises to be a low-fi, character-driven solo adventure for Wolverine. It’s also likely to be the last appearance of Hugh Jackman in the role he’s played for […]

There’s a lot to love about this series. The way it deals with society’s criminalization of clothing, of black culture and black people. The heavy stylizing of Harlem and the characters who inhabit it, going past caricature and into something deeper, into what it means to be black. But I think my favorite part of […]

Trayvon Martin’s death marks one of the most significant moments in the history of the hooded sweatshirt (henceforth referred to as a hoodie). The hoodie has been made to seem synonymous with Black American culture, but it’s also lent its stylings to thug culture, criminal culture, “badassery” culture and anonymizing culture. As an item of […]

We live in a world that is full of people. We see some of them every day, we recognize the big names and the prominent celebrities, but we also face familiar individuals, people that interact with us on the interpersonal level, individuals who do not affect the world at large, but small parts, microcosms, samples […]

It is easy to become cynical about the state of modern movie making – to focus on the role that international sales (mostly to China) and established franchises play in making a movie profitable and to assume, as it can be easy to assume, that this means the death of art. But movie making has […]

For the past three years, I’ve been ranking every film I see- just the new releases, from January 1st to December 31st. The rankings are subjective, based entirely on how much I enjoyed and/or connected with or appreciated the film rather than on some sort of objective artistic criteria. Basically, this is a list of […]

Finally, finally, after months of waiting, Jessica Jones is here. Since the first stills of Krysten Ritter in character as Jessica were released, I was ready for this show, and the first episode not disappoint. In a world with a lot of superhero TV shows already airing, and more planned, Jessica Jones has no trouble […]

There’s nothing quite like the midnight movie (okay, I’m old now, I snuck into a 10:30 showing). The hordes of fans excited for the same thing as you. The energy when that first Marvel Movie credit comes up. The giggling at the in jokes – the clapping at the easter eggs hinting at future awesomeness. […]

Daredevil made his comic book debut in 1964. As with most superheroes that have been around that long, he’s gone through his fair share of being reinvented and reimagined. As times have changed, his supporting cast has also evolved. On April 10th, Netflix released their new 13-episode original series based on the characters created by […]

I wish Agent Carter had come out some time last year, so when I say it’s one of the best new shows of the year, I don’t sound flippant. But since it is early January, let’s say Agent Carter sets the bar very high for the shows of 2015. Stylized, action-packed, humorous with a talented […]

One of the major pluses to Marvel building a complicated, interconnected multiverse (that also happens to be the most profitable thing around right now that’s not called Frozen) is that they can take insane, stupid risks. Like a rogueish space captain who’s not afraid to play with his own safety, they’re free to jump headfirst […]
