Chris Fox

Chris grew up during the Disney renaissance of animation and took his first trip to Disney World when he was ten. Even though he has loved Disney his whole life, his obsession didn't start until he began planning a trip for his honeymoon. Right now, his primary job (at least the one that doesn't pay the bills) is to indoctrinate his daughter with his love of Disney while at the same time convincing his wife to move to Orlando so he can become a tour guide in the parks. He can also be found indulging in his nerdy side (both Disney related and otherwise) at nerdintherealworld.wordpress.com.

Marvel chose to go down the well-worn path of turning gods into aliens and magic into…

  • Marvel Studios Retrospective: Iron Man 2 – 2010

    2009 was a quiet year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as no movies were released that year. It was, however, a BIG year for Marvel Studios as 2009 was the year it was bought by Disney. From here on out, Marvel would no longer be fledgling movie studio. Also from…

  • Marvel Studios Retrospective: The Incredible Hulk 2008

    We are continuing our Marvel retrospective with a look at the second film in the franchise – The Incredible Hulk. Let’s be honest, it’s really hard to make a movie about the Hulk. Think about it, the main character, the one we’re supposed to be rooting for, is trying to…

  • Marvel Studios Retrospective: Iron Man

    In the history of superhero movies, short as it is, there have been a number of milestones that have changed the direction these movies were going in. Superman in 1979, Batman in 1989, and X-Men and Spider-Man in the early 2000’s were some of the bigger ones. 2008 was another…
