Spoilers ahead!

OMG WTF is this guy doing typing cartoon robots amirite? Normally I would have given up on anybody who relegated MBTI from helpful/fun tool to “Let’s type a washing machine! ESFJ!” But this is different, I swear.

Since I was on the subject of Ex Machina and borots (Robots for the layman), I figured I’d go ahead with the idea of typing some of the most insanely awesome inventions in all of fiction- the EVAs. And while I pondered whether or not you can type a fictional robot with Ultron as the main subject, fiction does have a tendency to blur humanity and the…in…humane? If Ultron can mimic a personality to resemble an ENTJ, the EVAs and their apparent “emotions” can appear similarly to real personalities as well. Not to mention, the EVAs have certain traits other fictional robots can’t really boast.

Let’s do this.

Spoilers ahead!

I have no choice but to know this is going to be, at the very least, on my Top 10 of the year. With how little has come out that I actually care about, Ex Machina was like an oasis in the desert. Could I see some people being bored by it? Yep. The three people I was in the theater with all were.

But they couldn’t deny it was good.

So here are the types of the few characters there were. It’s always funny to see what types are present as well as missing and how that changes the tone of the film. No Guardians, the show is probably very flexible, maybe a lot of action, no Idealists and people’s morals get flexible, all that good stuff. See what you get from this. Continue reading

…Or as I like to call them “night and day” and that’s because I’m so funny hahahahaha.

The Avengers films have really taken off and though they could have gotten one of many well known actors to take the role on (Hasselhoff notwithstanding), why not cast the guy his Ultimate counterpart was not only based on, but outright says a movie version of him should be played by Samuel L. Jackson?

And as great a reimagining as he is, we can’t leave original Nick Fury out either, can we? He’s got a great look, a lot of history and don’t take no guff. So what are the differences between the original Nick Fury and the one the world at large has grown accustomed to? They share a lot of similarities but the differences are vast. Continue reading

MBTI: Hawkeye and the ISTP Teammate

Since I’ve probably got more characters on here typed as ISTP than any other type, why not do every major version of Clint “Hawkeye” Barton, where, though people may not want to believe it, every version is an ISTP. And just like your own type, they all act slightly different yet the type is still the same. What kind exactly? You’ll have to check it out, cowboy.

And this isn’t just different types of ISTP, as was a similar article with a few Game of Thrones characters, but rather how the ISTP plays into team dynamics using Hawkeye as a model. Specifically his 616 version (The original comic book counterpart), the 1610 version (The “Ultimate” line of Marvel comics), and the Marvel Cinematic Universe version. Continue reading

MBTI: Vision- INFJ

For all the characters claimed to be INFJ, this is what an actual INFJ hero looks like…in fiction of course. The living android has got a list of impressive powers but none are more impressive than a robot that seems to have more humanity in him than most characters in the Marvel universe, comics or film.

One thing about the INFJ is that they have a weird way of being able to blend in, yet never really blending in. Do you know what I mean? No? I’ll explain. Continue reading

Stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Elizabeth Olson, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, James Spader

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence and destruction, and for some suggestive comments, 141 minutes, Action/Adventure/Sci-fi

Compare to: X2: X-Men United (2003), The Avengers (2012)

I don’t know if expectations were raised for this installment of the Avengers film series or rather they’re already as high as expectations can get. Either way, they’ll be making their money.

As for whether or not you’ll enjoy the film may be a completely different animal than whether or not this is a good film, so…how long ya got? Continue reading
