5.3 A Life Spent

The world-building is hot and heavy this week as Agents Of Shield continues to expand the Marvel cosmos. There's lots of stuff going on with our time and space-tossed agents.

Let’s start with Simmons, who was taken prisoner last episode by the new Kree big bad Kasius. This week, Simmons befriends a newly introduced young Inhuman girl named Abby who has the power to alter her density (think Vision). And yes folks, in five minutes of screen time, the new Inhuman Abby gets more character development than any of the Inhumans Royal Family characters did in that series. And yes indeedy, Abby even got to use her powers unlike a

5.1 & 5.2 Orientation

Last year on Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., the show hopped genres from hi-tech super hero espionage to supernatural thrill-fest to Matrix-like action. And now, here in season of 5 of Marvel’s first modern TV series, we have hopped genres again into the realm of apocalyptic sci-fi survival as this new season of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. starts off with a huge bang.

And boy, did we need it. After six weeks of watching Marvel’s Inhumans endlessly wander around Hawaii aggressively not using their powers, it sure feels good to have some proper Marvel action on ABC. So where to begin?

Thankfully, we now know that Marvel’s Agents Of Shield will indeed return for a fifth season, so we do not have to present this season finale review with a heavy heart or with uncertainty. And it's a good thing, because all hell breaks loose this week. Literally.

World’s End is focused on the couples of Agents Of Shield and the love those couples share. We get powerful moments between Coulson and May, Fitz and Simmons, and Yo Yo and Mack, but this isn’t just a hearts and flowers instalment, because Ghost Rider is back, and this time, the demonic Spirit of Vengeance has quite the budget to back him up!

Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4 episode 21 review: The Return

4.21 The Return

And things seemed so hopeful.

Now that Shield has escaped the Framework (all but poor Mack), you’d think there would be a second to breathe. Oh hell no, things are more intense than ever..

Let’s start with the best big bad in the series’ four year history. Aida/Madame Hydra is absolutely terrifying and if the series does end after next week’s finale (please no), our team is going out on a bad guy high note. This week, Aida fully realises her humanity as she experiences heroism, love, and pain for the first time, proving herself to be the greatest and most complex threat Shield has ever faced. After

4.20 Farewell, Cruel World

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

We kick off with a quick look at outside the Framework as the Shield B team of Yo Yo, Piper, and a bunch of red shirts whose names I can’t remember are being chased by Aida's Russian minions in a riveting air battle sequence that kind of takes place off screen (oh, budget). At first, it is disconcerting being out of the Framework and seeing the McU proper, but the sequence also acts as a place setter as we prepare for what might be the final Framework adventure.

Well, Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned from a break two weeks ago, and now we have another break. What the hell, Marvel? But thankfully, in those sparse two weeks, the show has delivered two very solid episodes that set things up for the second half of the fourth season very nicely.

This week, Marvel fans are treated to the finale of the Ghost Rider storyline (at least for now) as Robbie Reyes and his Uncle Eli Morrow have a climactic confrontation. Happily this week, Morrow transforms from a kind of one-note villain into a classically relatable and somewhat tragic adversary. Even though Morrow

If you told me before season four of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. began that somehow the series would successfully balance plotlines dealing with the evolving Inhuman presence in the Marvel Universe, the introduction of the supernatural onto Marvel TV, and a storyline dealing with AI, I would have asked you what you’re smoking. But here we are with three divisive storylines running concurrently. It really shouldn’t work, but somehow it has been -- and this week’s episode is no exception.

4.3 Uprising

Full disclosure, I was able to watch this episode of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a packed auditorium during New York Comic Con 2016 with Clark Gregg, Chloe Bennet, and Gabriel Luna in attendance. Maybe it was the cheering crowd, maybe it was being so close to Chloe Bennett’s or Clark Gregg’s charisma, but man, I’ll be damned if this wasn’t the best episode of Agents Of Shield in a very long time. Maybe ever. So read this with the caveat that I was in nerdvana when I was watching the episode, and enjoy!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Finale Synopsis Teases A Big Death

If you still haven’t recovered from the shocking events of this past Tuesday’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. you may want to skip the following synopsis, as it seems to indicate that at least one main character is going to bite the bullet in the two-hour season finale next month.

To be fair, many fans will have figured something like this was on the cards, because the “Bouncing Back” episode opened with what appeared to be someone’s bloody demise in space. As of now, speculation points to it being either Mack or Yo Yo because of the gold cross necklace floating beside the corpse, but of course, that could well be misdirection.

Either way, have a read of the synopsis for the double episode below, and let us know who you think is going to be killed off in the comments section.

Honey Singh confesses being alcoholic and bipolar
With the return of Honey Singh as Punjab da Hero (with Zorawar), tongues once again were set wagging about his disappearance from the glam world and music for two years. Amidst several speculations, including an alleged fight between the rapper and superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Honey Singh decided to go public and confessed about the dark side of his life. Honey Singh reportedly confessed about his brush with alcoholism and the bipolar disorder that was aggravated due to his addiction to liquor. The musician further added that, initially the medication did not work on him and he had to change about four doctors in a span of one year. Further elaborating on his condition, he added that he feared meeting people. Considering that there was a time when he performed on stage with an audience of over 20,000, it was difficult for him to accept the fact that he was afraid

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Still Provides First Look At Natalia Cordova-Buckley As Slingshot

We actually found out that Mexican actress Natalia Cordova-Buckley would play Slingshot about three months ago, but today it was made official, as Marvel announced the casting along with our first look at the character as she’ll be appearing on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. when the show returns from its midseason break.

The official description reveals that this take on the Secret Warriors speedster will go by Elena Rodriguez, and not “Yo Yo” like her comic counterpart – though that could still be a nickname, of course. ComicBook.com (who broke the story) adds that she’s going to be “a street-wise Colombian woman who will be based on the Jonathan Hickman comic creation.”

In those comics, Rodriguez has super-speed much like The Flash or X-Men‘s Quicksilver, but unlike them, her power eventually slingshots (hence the codename) her back to the point she started running from. It remains to be

The site describe this Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. take on the character as "a street-wise Colombian woman who will be based on the Jonathan Hickman comic creation." In the comics, Yo Yo can blast off at super speeds but then bounces back to the place she began running from - hence the code-name. It remains to be seen if she'll have those exact powers on the sho.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Casts Natalia Cordova-Buckley As Slingshot

The synopsis for the midseason finale of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. hinted that Daisy (Chloe Bennet) would be finalizing her team of Secret Warriors to go up against the forces of Hydra, and that would seem to be confirmed with the addition of Mexican actress Natalia Cordova-Buckley (Windows to the Sea, McFarland, USA) to the cast.

According to Point Of Geeks, Buckley will play Yo Yo Rodriguez, Aka Slingshot. This Marvel Comics character is a speedster like The Flash and X-Men‘s Quicksilver, but unlike them, her power eventually slingshots (hence the name) her back to the point she started running from.

It’s an interesting twist on the usual super-speed ability, and will hopefully make for a cool visual on the show. In the comics, Rodriguez was actually the daughter of the supervillian known as The Griffin, and gained her powers through his

Natalia Cordova-Buckley To Play 'Slingshot' In Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3

According to Point of Geeks, Natalia Cordova-Buckley (McFarland, USA) has joined the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Yo Yo Rodriguez, a character you'll know better as Secret Warriors member Slingshot. It hasn't been revealed when exactly she'll show up in the series, but the site adds that the actress is set to begin work on the series in January, so we won't be seeing her until the show returns in March. For those of you unfamiliar with Slingshot, she's a speedster similar to The Flash and Quicksilver. However, the difference here is that she ends up always returning to the spot where she activated her powers, hence the name! That could be a lot of fun to explore in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and makes her stand out from the heroes mentioned above. What do you guys think?

What A Combination! Hrithik to dance on rapper Honey Singh's Aashiqui's recreated version 'Dheere Dheere Se'

If singer-dancer jodi Atif Aslam and Tiger Shroff energized you with 'Aa Raha Hoon Mai Zindagi' song, than get ready for yet another 'deadly combo', who will surely sweep you off your feet! As T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar is bringing singing and dancing sensation Yo Yo Honey Singh and Hrithik Roshan in the same frame!

Well, Bhushan Kumar, who these days is quite keen on reviving the Indie music phenomenon (which was popular in 90s), is producing the next single, which is a recreated version of Aashiqui's chartbusting track 'Dheere Dheere Se'. Actor Hrithik Roshan will be dancing to Yo Yo's recreated version, which is the singer-composer's tribute and an ode to Bhushan Kumar's father Shri Gulshan Kumar. Honey Singh has recreated this memorable cult song of Gulshan Kumar and revised the lyrics for the new track.

Second Opinion – Chappie (2015)

Chappie, 2015.

Directed by Neill Blomkamp.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver and Jose Pablo Cantillo.

Synopsis:

In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

Neill Blomkamp certainly has some intriguing sci-fi concepts imbued with relevant social themes, but with Elysium the execution was off, and it is once again with Chappie. Saying the execution was off is a major understatement however, as Chappie is a straight-up disaster, from the script, to the acting, and even the production. It also doesn’t help that Blomkamp has essentially crafted District 9 for the third time, lifting all of his central themes and locations from the movie that brought him to the dance. Chappie is easily the worst film in the director’s portfolio,
