Loki Season Two Review

After a thrilling end to season one, season two of Loki picks up right where the finale of season one left off with Loki (Tom Hiddleston, he/him) back in the TVA facing confusion and Sylvie (Sophia DiMartino, she/her) having just made the grave decision to kill He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors, he/him). The first of the six-episode series released on October 5th at 9pm EST and will continue releasing every Thursday on Disney+. 

The first episode took us right where season one left off and brought us several returning characters, namely Mobius (Owen Wilson, he/him), B-15 (Wunmi Mosako she/her), and Casey (Eugene Cordero, he/him). It also introduced us to the very lovable Ouroboros, aka OB (Ke Huy Quan, he/him) who quickly stole the show and made himself a staple of the cast. 

The first and second episodes, “Ouroboros” and “Breaking Bad” each seem to have their own problems which is the start of the diversion from the formula that many of the other Marvel shows have followed. The shows so far have been pieces of long movies whereas future shows, specifically the future Daredevil show, will follow a more standard TV format where they will have A plot, B plot, C plot and so on throughout the season before wrapping up with a satisfying conclusion. Loki seems to be Marvel’s test of this format and so far, it’s not disappointing.

Episodes one and two wrap up with decent conclusions and foreshadow the overarching plot.

One of the questions that still seems to be bugging the audience is how Marvel is going to treat Major’s character considering the allegations he has been facing since the release of season one. 

My overall reaction has been good, and we’re excited to see where this season goes.

An Honest Immaculate Review

Immaculate, starring Sydney Sweeney (she/her) and directed by Michael Mohan (he/him), was a good movie. That being said, it did not blow my mind. The plot was predictable and the messaging was heavy-handed. However, I enjoyed it. I don’t think it will become the next cult classic, but it is worth the watch. MINOR SPOILERS […]

JoJo See-Ya Later

It is impossible to describe all of JoJo Siwa’s (she/her) controversies in one article, so to make a long story short, I am very tired of seeing her name in YouTube thumbnails and TikTok captions. While I will not deny that she has done a lot of good with her platform, such as speaking out […]
