NOC Review: ‘Haunted Mansion’ is Better than the First but Still Flawed

Justin Simien’s Haunted Mansion is hitting theaters this weekend. This is the second attempted to adapt Disney’s beloved attraction The Haunted Mansion into a stellar blockbuster film. The first was the 2003 adaptation that starred Eddie Murphy, which, if I’m being honest, wasn’t great. And thankfully Simien does a little better with the material, but overall, I’m still waiting for a definitive adaptation to materialize.

There is No Mephisto in ‘Loki’

Warning: Spoiler alert for the first episode of Loki

When WandaVision premiered, fans speculated that the series Big Bad was going to be Mephisto, a devil-like demon from Hell, and stuck with the idea that he will eventually be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When he did not appear in WandaVision, many fans hope for the red devil were lost until the premiere of Marvel’s new series Loki. Obviously, when the first episode of Loki dropped – fans observed every little detail – including a scene which featured TVA agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) traveling to a crime scene where TVA soldiers were found killed. He proceeded to ask a young child who was present on who killed the men in the church. The child then pointed to a stained glass of a devil.

NOC Review: Kneel Before ‘Loki,’ the Best Marvel Studios Series Thus Far!

I realize I’ve only seen two episodes, but as of this moment, Loki is absolutely already my favorite of the Marvel Studios shows so far. Don’t get me wrong. WandaVision is incredibly original and ambitious. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Captain America and the Winter Soldier was relevant and politically aware. But after the first two episodes of each, I found myself questioning whether or not I loved the shows as much as the films. Yes it’s great to give us time to explore these characters as more than just B-members of The Avengers, playing second fiddle to the original six. But was it really going to give me the same feelings I got whenever I’d walk out of the cinemas after another rousing $200M budgeted 2-3 hour installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Having been part of the Disney family since 2006 in Disney Pixar’s Cars as the voice of Lightning McQueen, Wilson never really thought about being part of the MCU until he was pitched to by Loki director Kate Herron. Now, Wilson plays Time Variance Authority (TVA) agent, Mobius, who works with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to stop a rogue variant from killing more of his Time Agents in Marvel Studio’s Loki.
