Initially excited about DC Comics’ planned REBIRTH event, I’m starting, as we inch closer to it happening, to get a little apprehensive. Details are being provided; the pieces are coming together; little by little the coloring is being applied to the tapestry, and I’m not at all certain I’m digging what I’m starting to see,… Continue reading Two Supermen and a Clark?
Skip the Spin. Think for Yourselves. Here’s a little something that is much needed right now, a healthy dose of TRUTH. Facts can be spun any whichyway but they remain immutable. They are still facts whether or not a person exaggerates them or tries to minimalise them. It is a fact that BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN… Continue reading A Conspiracy against BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN?
Just got in from seeing this film, and it pleases me to no end to announce that my worries concerning its failure were unfounded. Don’t pay any attention to the commoner critics. This is a damn good movie, period. I’ve stated many times that “mainstream” critics are woefully unqualified to judge genre movies, and this… Continue reading Review: BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN – DAWN OF JUSTICE
[NOTE: This article was written on Monday, March 21st.] I’ve been saying all along that if I was wrong I would gladly admit it. I’m talking about BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN. I’ve been predicting failure for the movie, for numerous reasons. While it’s still too early to say one way or the other—there will be no… Continue reading Could it be that I was wrong?
Yeah, we wish. The casting of Affleck was the one decision among all the rest that divided the fan community and firmly implanted doubt in the minds of a multitude regarding the future of the entire DC cinematic universe. And now we get the news that director Zack Snyder DID want Bale—but not as Batman.… Continue reading Christian Bale in BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN?
In the words of legendary wrasslin’ commentator Jim “Good ol’ JR” Ross, “Bizness is about to pick up!” I’ve shared my concerns over the “new” Marvel comics in recent posts. Initially those were minimal, but as the months have sped by they have grown exponentially. I’m still digging on THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and the new… Continue reading AVENGERS: STANDOFF – Will it restore Marvel’s foundering glory?
Technically—if I were speaking that word aloud instead of typing it, I’d draw it out. “Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh-ch-ni-ca-llleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”—it was a tie. Godzilla, back when the character was licensed to Marvel in the late 70s, took on the Avengers. And the Fantastic Four. And SHIELD. He would’ve taken on Spider-man, too, but Spidey was late to the party.… Continue reading Marvel vs. Godzilla – Guess who won?
Looks like the rumors were true. Sorta. DC has taken notice of declining sales figures and grousing, increasing in volume, from its hardcore faithful readership, and is now willing to admit—sorta—that the “new 52” has been a failure. Sure, it snagged plenty of attention at the outset. But as the new series all plodded on,… Continue reading The NEW New 52
It’s deliciously appropriate that Deadpool would be the one to do this. The movie bearing his name just destroyed all expectations—these based off the flawless “system” employed by simpleminded studio executives to predict whether or not a movie project will be successful, and just how successful it will be—by opening to a bigger box office… Continue reading DEADPOOL the Conqueror!
No, I didn’t watch it. I have never watched it, and, unless someone ties me down and pins my eyelids open, like they did to Malcolm McDowell in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, and plop me down in front of a television at the prescribed time, I will NEVER watch it. There are only six people in… Continue reading THE BEST COMMERCIAL FROM that ballgame
