Marvel Comics is canceling a shit-ton of books. That’s a good thing. If nothing else is evident at this point, it’s evident that Marvel needs to clean its house. First, Marvel chose not to renew the contracts of most of their established writers. Then their top dog, Brian Michael Bendis, jumped ship to the Distinguished… Continue reading The Culling
I’m gonna go on record right now and state that I do not believe it. Not a word of it. You have to look at the behavior of the people involved. Have any of the accusers filed charges? Nope. They’ve demanded money. Stan claims it is a “shakedown” and I believe him. It is Stan… Continue reading Stan Lee Falsely Accused of Sexual Harassment
I enjoyed this one a lot more than I would have expected. I’d initially planned to see it when it came out on video; I WOULD have consigned it to the nearest discount theater, and seen it there; it was, in my initial estimation, a perfect candidate for the discount theater. Alas, AMC decided to… Continue reading Movie Review: JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
I got hit by the Flu. Hit hard. On Christmas. The doctor put me in quarantine, so I sent my lovely better half to stay with relatives and forbid anyone from coming to my domicile to check on me. I’ve been all on my own, and have whiled away the hours, when not puking, shivering… Continue reading Looking back at THE INCREDIBLE HULK
There were reports that Gal Gadot would refuse to do WONDER WOMAN 2 unless Warner Brothers severed ties with Brett Ratner. (Ratner, like Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and other prominent actors, directors, and producers, has been accused of sexual misconduct. That’s just a polite way of saying the guy’s a pervert.) Then Warner Brothers said… Continue reading Did She Or Didn’t She?
Man, everything’s happening all at once. Reports are coming in today that Ben Affleck definitely WILL be replaced as Batman in the new trilogy from Matt Reeves. This is a part of the bigger behind-the-scenes shakeup at Warner Brothers in the wake of JUSTICE LEAGUE failing to perform up to expectations. (If they’d just listened… Continue reading Big News
That’s what this article highlights. DC screwed the pooch with JUSTICE LEAGUE by tampering. Studio tampering NEVER results in a better movie. My review of JUSTICE LEAGUE is available at our sister site, vampires.com, but I’ll encapsulate for you here. I thoroughly enjoyed it, because of my love for these characters, even while acknowledging its… Continue reading DC Screwed Up
You can’t believe half of what you read on the Internet, and that’s including the supposedly credible news sites. All it takes is for one site to post something of dubious factuality, and then the others start citing that original article as a source, and pretty soon there are countless articles floating around in the… Continue reading News not so bad for JUSTICE LEAGUE?
Warner Brothers have really painted themselves into a corner. If the entire DC cinematic universe had been a flop, as this past weekend’s JUSTICE LEAGUE was a flop (and undeservedly so, it bears mentioning; for my official review of the film, check out vampires.com!), they could just scrap everything and start over. With rumors of… Continue reading After JUSTICE LEAGUE – What Next?
I’ve given this one a bit of thought, and there’s no way to look at it that doesn’t equate to it being bad news for Marvel. Like, really bad news. More than any other creator, Brian Michael Bendis deserves the credit for making Marvel what it is today. Think back to the time before him,… Continue reading Bendis Bails
