One of the reasons that I decided to start this account was an article that I read about how the colours used for different scenes to represent the different members of The Defenders could also correspond with their Hogwarts houses. This sounds silly, but hear me out. Matt's colour is red. He is so honourable and chivalric, and is always prepared to charge into battle. Jessica just wants knowledge and will try as hard as possible to get it. Luke wants to protect everyone he cares about, which is pretty much everyone he's ever met. And Danny has his goals, and is trying to figure out the best way to reach them. Do you think this sounds sensible, or silly? I put the original article in my bio.
Marvel's Daredevil - Season 1 Review
Originally Aired: 2015
Starring: Charlie Cox, Vincent D'Onofrio
With Netflix's The Defenders coming soon, I thought it's time to review all of the shows. I reviewed Iron Fist back when it came out in March, and you know I hated it. But I feel very differently about the rest of them. Daredevil is a dark, brutally violent drama that I believe is one of Marvel's best works. Matt Murdock is a great character that you instantly care about, along with his partner Foggy Nelson. Karen Page and Claire Temple, crucial supporting characters, are equally interesting. But none of them compare to the season's main villain, Wilson Fisk. As you learn more about him you can actually see what he means whenever he talks. You understand why he does all of the horrible things he does. Through flashbacks, you learn what made Fisk the man that he is today and that's a fascinating story to see. The show is incredibly violent, which fits the show's atmosphere. The action is brutal and real, and you feel every hit and every broken bone. That's how well done it is. Some of the themes and lines in the show remind me of Batman, which is to be expected. Murdock struggles with the idea of killing throughout and the scenes at the church are very well done and emotionally challenging. An interesting line in one of the episodes when a character says to Matthew "So one day you just couldn't take it anymore." Referring to the crime in Hell's Kitchen, a line that reminded me of Taxi Driver. Just thought that was interesting. Overall, Daredevil shines in its first season with a brutal, realistic and smart take on the character. Combine that with a spectacular villain in Wilson Fisk and you've got a show that compares to some of the best superhero films and TV shows ever made.
