  • Netflix’s Marvel’s Daredevil

    I want to preface this review by saying I know virtually nothing about Daredevil lore. I know there’s Daredevil and he’s blind and lives in Hell’s Kitchen and his girlfriend is Sydney Bristow whose alias is Elektra and that’s pretty much it. I never saw the Ben Affleck movie.

Stop reading now if you haven’t seen the movie yet and are among […]
