I’m tired of giving DC movies poor reviews, I really am. I’m not a Marvel Fanboy, I believe in both teams. It is true I have more favorite Marvel characters than DC and like Marvel Studios’ movies better, but I have read far more DC books; all the essential Batman graphic novels (Year One, Dark Knight Returns & sequels ...

I’ve seen Batman: The Killing Joke (obviously, that’s why you’re here!), the WB Animation adaptation of the classic graphic novel by masterminds Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons! It’s… a mixed bag. The original story you know and love (or should read so that you know and love it) is there, but it’s surrounded by ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
This should be the last trailer I share from San Diego Comic Con 2016, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting. Yet it’s the first trailer that’s not from Marvel Studios or DC Entertainment, but again, that doesn’t make it any less exciting. It’s also the second trailer in a row featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
It seems like whenever DC releases something awesome, say the new Teasers for Wonder Woman, Justice League, and The Lego Batman Movie, Marvel strikes back and eclipses them. While these DC titles are all higher profile (it’s Wonder Women, Batman, and The Justice League for Christ’s sake), Marvel Studios has turned one of their lesser ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Yet another gift arrives from DC during San Diego Comic Con 2016! Earlier DC showed us teasers for Wonder Woman and Justice League, but now we have a longer trailer for the best looking upcoming DC Film of all: The Lego Batman Movie! Producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord promised The Lego Batman Movie “is chock full of stuff for Batman ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Just like Marvel Studios’ Netflix Presentation, DC Entertainment didn’t just bring a trailer for their next movie, Suicide Squad, to San Diego Comic Con, they also brought a teaser and poster for their movie after that, Wonder Woman… AND even a trailer and official image for their own super team team up film, Justice League! ...

“Skip to the end.” Though not a term exclusive to the 1999 UK television series Spaced, the phrase quickly became one of the show’s running jokes, being recited throughout both seasons frequently and even serving as the name of the Documentary about the making of Simon Pegg’s breakout show. Spaced was created & written ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Marvel’s Netflix corner of the MCU looks as though it will continue to blossom (not that anything can really grow in Marvel’s version of Hell’s Kitchen or Harlem). At San Diego Comic Con Thursday, Marvel Studios unveiled trailers for their next three (3!) Netflix Series. To be fair, they range from as teaser-y as you can get to ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
This year I’ve had to review some stinkers (Hardcore Henry, X-Men: Apocalypse, Independence Day: Resurgence), a bunch of mediocre films (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Ghostbusters, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, The BFG), three good movies (Central Intelligence, Green Room, Keanu), and a great movie (Captain America: ...

Earlier today saw the release of the final trailer for Star Trek Beyond, which hits the silver screen this Friday!… I’ve gone and done it again… I’ve killed someone for sport captured all the most exciting moments in Screengrabs for your easy enjoyment. I focused on the glory, action shots, because, let’s be real, ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
It is a great day (and week) indeed, fellow Trek fans! Not only was the final, “short and oh-so-sweet” trailer released for this Friday’s Star Trek Beyond, but Paramount also treated us to the official plot synopsis for the yet-to-be-dated “new” Star Trek 4! First, the final trailer for Star Trek Beyond: Exciting, ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
It’s hard for me to determine how much I liked the new Ghostbusters. I did like it, don’t get me wrong, but I’m not sure how much of my enjoyment came from the new product versus how much was Nostalgia driven. Not that there is anything wrong with counting Nostalgia as a factor when reviewing films based off classic franchises from my ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Though I may have outgrown it, The BFG proves that my favorite director, Steven Spielberg, still has that magic that very few directors bring to their “Kid’s Movies.” While not as enduring and endearing as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (wow, Spielberg loves his acronyms), a film I still enjoy as an adult, that “Spielberg Magic & ...

In what seems like one of the most “un-Star Trek-y” moves ever, there is a new, final, trailer #3 for next month’s Blockbuster Star Trek Beyond complete with a Rihanna single written exclusively for the movie? What the Fuck? Are you Battle-Shitting Me?? The 1st trailer, released last December, featured a Beastie Boys’ song, ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Independence Day: Resurgence proves that delayed sequels can’t rely on Nostalgia alone. It’s as if the filmmakers watched Jurassic World and drew the conclusion that its success was a result of pure repetition. Sure, Jurassic World shared a lot in common with it’s over twenty year old predecessor, 1993’s Jurassic Park, but it also brought ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Central Intelligence follows the long tradition of “Buddy Cop” movies, pulling off humor, action, and a mismatched pair of heroes who must learn to work together. It pairs this formula with a Mission: Impossible style “Spy on the Run” plot; the film’s biggest weakness. While the plot doesn’t always click, Dwayne (formally “The ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
I am shocked, shocked I tell you (shell-shocked)! I never thought I’d write this, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is… good! Not great, but good! Unlike the 1st film, this sequel has lost all of its Michael Bay/Transformers sensibilities and production design in favor of a film that feels like a direct adaptation of the ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Only MILD SPOILERS ahead. There’s nothing here that you couldn’t surmise from the trailer. Even as a huge Comic Book Movie Fan who has Marvel leanings, X-Men is one of those franchises I’ve never really cared for. X-2 is fine, I do really like First Class, but Days of Future Past and The Wolverine are simply okay. The 1st X-Men ages ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
You know me, I like Screengrabs (and they sell, baby!). Here are some I made on my own, originals if you will, covering EVERY shot in the trailer (mostly…mostly). Because I’m nothing if not a completist. Yes, they are all HD. But these are moving pictures, kiddies, so sometimes they come out blurry. Trust me, I’m an expert.Star ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
Wow, it took them (Paramount) long enough, but we finally have our 2nd trailer AND the 1st poster for Star Trek Beyond! Seeing as how the movie is only 2 months away, this is cutting it close for a full theatrical trailer, especially considering the teaser came out in time for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, over 5 months ago! Often, a lack of ... READ MORE!!! Now!!!
