the performance | You asked us in, “And one Y, but that’s not where you’re thinking.”
When magician Donny Blaze Mystic Castle first pulled Madisynn King out of his audience for a trick, her drink almost slipping out of his glass, she might have groaned at the first hint of her tender vocal fry. But the Guggenheim immediately made the party girl very happily Defined by the rhythm and tone of her speech. (Seriously, who comments, “Ew,” when faced with a multidimensional portal?)
Then, when he knocked Madisynn through another gate and nearly landed on Wong’s lap? All as the supreme sorcerer tried gluttony soprano In his bed moon crown? We were at the races, where the most likely MCU friendship formed (exploded soprano spoilers). There was a quiet brilliance in the way Guggenheim – who played the role of Florida girl Before – he vividly recounted how “Blaze sent me to different dimensions, after which the talking goat helped me escape from the lava pit in exchange for six drops of my blood,” all while being distracted by the lace of his dress.
Guggenheim’s best showing came when attorney Jane Walters/She-Hulk reluctantly summoned her to testify in court, as Ungers (straight man A-plus Benedict Wong) sought to write off Blaze’s work left by Mystic Arts. The way you casually recounted the pact you made with the Land of Fire demon who I am I can not Discussion ‘was a shout, however pale in comparison to her detail of the feelings she felt as she navigated the gate: ‘Initially she was cheerful. then scary. then cheerful repeatedly. then horrifyingBut in cheerful road!”
Finally, Guggenheim’s Madisynn was one of the first truly contemporary characters to enter the MCU in a while – someone who feels real or worse, and not carefully molded to serve a purpose by heart. She is neither a scientist, nor a doctor, nor a powerful being. It’s just a girl from Florida sharing popcorn content and this is us Gluttony with her wongers. And maybe some yak milk, too. clo-oo-osed condition!
honorary | Dragon HouseThe first few episodes were greatly deficient in Big Lannister Energy, a deficiency Jefferson Hall It fills up twice in a Sunday hour. Playing twins Tyland (erect, driven) and Jason (Smarmy, titled) Lannister, Hall gave us a peek at his big group. But we’d like to focus on the totally entertaining way he, like Jason, tried to woo Princess Rainera. Hole mixed the arrogance we got from House Lannister with Jason’s naked ambition, bordered on nonsense. (Need to laugh? Go back and watch how his face changes the moment Rhaenyra turns her back.) The episode left us really excited to see what Hall will be up to when the spotlight is on Ser Tyland.
Kind Warning | this week The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Arondir is found nearly at breaking point after Silvan elf is captured by the Orcs and forced to work in one of their camps under horrific conditions. In a powerful scene that revealed his fierce warrior spirit, the bound imp took on a fox – the same beast that nearly killed Aragorn in The two towers – To help his friend escape, only to watch them die. While we thoroughly enjoyed those acrobatics that inspired the same awe we felt with Legolas in the Peter Jackson films, we were most impressed with the fire in Ismael Cruz Cordova And the eyes and the great roar of his lungs as he resisted the Goblin. With a stronger will than Mithril, Arondir quickly became one of our favorite things to watch.
Kind Warning | It’s always bittersweet to watch kids grow up, but it was so hard to see What do we do in the shade?Colin Robinson entered manhood this week – only because it was such a pleasure to see Mark Brooks Play it through each stage of his awkward adolescence. Starting this week’s finale as a sullen, metallic teenager, Coleen captured that perfectly grumpy age with arched shoulders, sneers, and eye rolls. It also triggered an unexpectedly poignant note when Colin discovered his unfortunate fate as an energy vampire. By the time he resumed his familiar form as the painfully faded adult Colin, it almost seemed like two different actors, because Proksch was so disguised as “Baby Colin.”
