Was I dreaming or was last week’s episode amazing? It was. Okay, I wasn’t having a hallucination. Well then…what the heck was that?!
Marvel Studios has had some questionable MCU finales with rushed storylines, lackluster climactic action scenes, etc. but this…? This was a whole other level of yeesh.
The CGI was at times really good and at other times really bad. The action is terrible and literally sped up so many times that it was actually quite comical. The story was rushed so terribly that I’m not quite sure what just happened? This finale honestly didn’t feel professionally crafted and the fact that Marvel Studios released it knowing it was this bad is just…sad.
One word comes to mind when I think of this week’s episode: whoa. Moon Knight has been a blast for the past three weeks but this episode takes the cake so far.
I had such a rush of emotions watching this episode. I was laughing, legitimately terrified, riveted, shocked, confused, bewildered, and downright strangely giddy with excitement at what is to come.
This show has taken a unique, unexpected turn that has me scratching my head, and yet I’m even more intrigued about what’s next. It’s undoubtedly my favorite MCU show since Loki and if the next two episodes stay solid in their enjoyability this might become my favorite MCU series. It’s absolutely fantastic.
And: SPOILER ALERT, Steven kissed Layla. What a development! A hilarious development at that.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
As someone who loves Egyptian mythology, this episode had me buzzing. I loved the beginning for its focus on the gods, the middle for more interactions between Marc and Layla as well as another awesome Moon Knight action sequence, and the end had me staring at the screen gobsmacked. This show is so interesting, from the unique perspective of having Dissociative Identity Disorder while trying to save the world to the lore of the Egyptian gods this series is so, so very intriguing.
We’ve got three episodes left and it looks like there’s a lot more story that needs to be told. And how it will connect to the MCU because you know we’re going there! Oh, I’m so excited for next week’s episode and whatever is in store.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
Well, Marvel Studios just did that! I can honestly say this was the best premiere for any MCU show so far.
It was unique, surprisingly hilarious, intense, shocking, way scarier than I was expecting, but most importantly, I was riveted. Oscar Isaac transformed so perfectly into Steven Grant, this quirky guy who works at a gift shop and gets thrust into this world of espionage and Egyptian deities. And then as Marc Spector, you really feel like he’s a guy who knows what he’s doing as a mercenary. I just can’t wait to see what exactly that is.
Ethan Hawke was magnificent. I don’t know anything about this character, Arthur Harrow, and that is definitely refreshing. It makes me more scared when he appears and I’m more intrigued about this character and what he will add to this franchise.
All in all, this was a perfect start for a series I wasn’t expecting to enjoy as much, and wow, wow, wow. I’m so ready for next week!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
It’s almost time for the first 2022 MCU entry to arrive and yes, it’s Moon Knight, the highly unexpected new series starring none Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke, two actors who I never imagined would join the MCU. And yet, here we are.
I was already excited about this show but once people started to get the screeners it became very clear this series was going to be better than expected. Now we’re only one week away and I am excited to experience the Moon Knight era because if it is anywhere near as fun as the WandaVision or Loki eras, I’m going to have an absolute blast.
Are you excited for Moon Knight? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
Yeah, the Moon Knight trailer is here and I’ve got to say, I have it up there with Loki on my EXCITED list for a Disney+ series. For now, Loki is still the series I was most excited about after its trailer mainly because, well, I knew the title character. I still have roughly no idea about Marc Spector or Moon Knight or the intriguing and apparent supernatural corner of the MCU he inhabits. I’m also quite not over the fact that Poe’s about to be a superhero, even though I know Oscar Isaac has the acting chops to pull this role off and Sarah Halley Finn hasn’t failed yet at casting.
