Marvel's Iron Fist episode 9 viewing notes: The Mistress Of All Agonies

28 March 2017 12:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Hunt Mar 28, 2017

The Mistress Of All Agonies is a fairly slow Iron Fist episode, even by this show's standards. Spoilers ahead...

These viewing notes contain spoilers.

Iron Fist, the fourth and final member of the Defenders, has finally made his debut. As with previous Netflix series, we’ll be reviewing an episode a day highlighting the characters, reference points and easter eggs we spotted. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!

Episode 9 opened with the least surprising resurrection of all time, as Harold returned from the swamp where Ward dumped him. Do we think Ward will have to face the consequences of dumping those other two bodies there? Unlikely.

As it was, I found Harold’s zombified stroll across New York and subsequent ice-cream scoop murder of his point-free assistant Kyle borderline cringeworthy, »

Kong: Skull Island” enjoyed a massive win during its opening weekend in China, positioning itself to overtake second-place “Beauty and The Beast” in overall grosses in the Middle Kingdom after just four days of release.

“Kong” scored $68.5 million, according to local data service Ent Group. Overseas distributor Warner Bros. reported the figure as $72.1 million.

The gross was the second-largest opening in China for an international film this year. It accounted for about 70% of the nationwide weekend total.

Chinese new release “Top Funny Man: The Movie” debuted in third place with $6.99 million. But with declining scores on Saturday and Sunday, it looks set to sink quickly. »

Dennis O’Neil: Authority Figures Are Often Full Of…

23 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Pay attention now. There’s a lesson to be learned here today and you should believe what I’m about to write, but we’ll get to that later… after we produce some evidence.

Here’s the lesson – in italics to emphasize its importance: Authority figures are often full of shit.

I’m not saying all authority figures are wicked per se. They are, after all, a gift of evolution and anything that evolution offers has a reason for being. But keep your skepticism at the ready when visiting the experts, especially if they’re speaking outside of their specialties.

You might want to heed a brain surgeon’s recommendation regarding your gray matter, but pass on his political opinions.

And about those specialties: be at least a tad skeptical there, too. A few months a medical specialist with the white jacket and the framed certificates on the wall – the »

China Box Office: ‘Beauty’ Dominates Weekend

19 March 2017 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Beauty and the Beast” easily dominated a polarized and quieter than average weekend at the Chinese box office.

It earned a very solid $42.8 million in its opening three days, according to local box office service Ent Group. Disney reported the figure as $44.8 million.

With an average of 100,000 screenings per day, “Beauty” was set up to win. And on all three days, it enjoyed a mid-60% market share. Disney reported that its score was the highest ever opening for a Disney Live Action – meaning Lucasfilm or Marvel – title.

The “gay moment” controversy that dogged the film in some other territories was not an important factor in China. Chinese regulators boasted that they had admitted the film intact and without one of the age warnings permitted under the new Film Promotion Law.

Far behind, in second place, was “A Dog’s Purpose.” It scored $11.1 million in its third weekend on release, for a cumulative of $74.8 million. »

This past weekend saw the premiere of Iron Fist, which despite negative early reviews has done pretty well and had a fairly positive reaction from fans.

For those that are not aware of the character’s history, Iron Fist was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane. The character was a reaction to the pop culture phenomena of Kung Fu and other martial arts, which got huge in the...read more »

Is Iron Fist as Bad as the Reviews Say? (Spoilers)

18 March 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Marvel’s latest Netflix show Iron Fist was released yesterday and it’s gotten punched in the gut by critics, receiving a paltry 17 % fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a somewhat higher 37% on Metacritic. Is it really that bad? Cinelinx break down the show to see if it’s as dismal as advertised and if so, what went wrong.  (Spoilers ahead)

Is Iron Fist terrible? Well…no, not really. It’s disappointing but it’s not as horrible as the critical ratings make it seem. The likely reason that the show—which stars Finn Jones as the iron fisted hero—is getting stomped on so hard is probably due to the fact that the previous Netflix shows have raised the bar so high in quality that expectations for Iron Fist were in the stratosphere. Sadly, Iron Fist doesn’t meet those expectations. It’s not bad…it’s just frustratingly mediocre. »

Your Complete Guide to Binge Watching 'Marvel's Iron Fist'

16 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Defenders roster is now complete. With the premiere of Marvel's Iron Fist -- all 13 episodes are available to stream at midnight -- the final spot in Netflix's assemblage of small screen Avengers has been filled by Danny Rand. Before you binge, here is a comprehensive guide of everything you need to know about Danny and his glowing fist of kung fu glory.

"The show is very gritty and very dark in certain aspects," Finn Jones explains to Et. "We tackle serious issues, like the heroin problem in New York and corporate cataclysm and corruption behind the scenes. There's definitely dark elements, but I think how Danny is different from the other superheroes is Danny has this naivety to him, which actually gets him in a lot of trouble."

Marvel's Iron Fist Clips: Who Is Danny Rand?

16 March 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Netflix's newest Marvel television series Iron Fist has an identity problem. Each of the preceding series leading up to Iron Fist -- culminating in the epic mini-series The Defenders later this year -- exhibited distinct points-of-view and unique attitudes. Daredevil expressed Matt Murdock's Catholic-driven rage, Luke Cage was typified by his social consciousness and a soulful mood, while Jessica Jones demonstrated female empowerment against the backdrop of addiction and sexual abuse. Each was an extraordinary character living within a fully-defined world. The perplexing question left unanswered by the lead-up to Iron Fist is: who is Danny Rand? And more important, why should we care? 

Over the past couple days, Netflix has dropped three new clips, which aim to define the character of Danny Rand, portrayed by actor Finn Jones, while also fleshing-out the world of Iron Fist and how it will be woven into the tapestry of what will soon become The Defenders. »

Dennis O’Neil: Of Fists and Dragons

16 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Spring already? Well, okay, but I look out the window and see ten inches of snow. (And you may now imagine me sniffing and grumbling.) But, alas, just because I may not happen to like it, this spring bushwa, doesn’t mean anything surprising is about to happen. I can’t help noticing that the universe seldom alters its plan to accommodate my preferences. Rotten, but there you are,

So I guess we make the best of it, which is what we grumbling homo saps have always done, more or less, when we’ve gotten our grumbling out of the way. (First things first.) Okay, anything interesting on the immediate agenda? Ummmm – nope. But before I offer a tepid correction to that last sentence (if sentence is what it was) let me call your attention to an entertainment that lurks in the shadows of Thursday night.
