Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

Batman vs Superman - Dawn of Justice (2016)

Pip was in town last weekend for his yearly trek to Cleveland and during that trip we took the opportunity to go see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The flick has gotten absolutely blasted by the critics even though it was doing very well at the box office (at least for the first weekend). I don’t typically worry much about what critics have to say so I was very excited to see just what … Continue reading

Deadpool (2016) Gets A Crisp High Five

Deadpool (2016)

I finally got a chance to see Deadpool the other night. To say I enjoyed it would be a slight understatement. It was awesome. I’m not going to suggest I’m a Deadpool fan. I’m not. In fact, I’ve probably only read a handful of his comics ever. I was sort of, kind of familiar with the character and went into the movie essentially blind to the character and to the plot of the movie other … Continue reading

Man of Steel (2013) – Not Your Father’s Superman

Man Of Steel (2013)

Man of Steel is a 2013 reboot of the Superman franchise directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan, and scripted by David S. Goyer.  Once again we’re given the origin of the character which was originally told in the 1978 classic Superman.  Early indications are that Man of Steel is to launch a shared movie universe similar to how Marvel has created a shared universe for Iron Man, Thor and the other Avengers.  This … Continue reading

The Dark Knight Rises – Nolan’s Trilogy Complete

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Four years ago, Christopher Nolan gave us a cinematic masterpiece called The Dark Knight that was much more than just a comic book movie… it was a brilliant piece of film making.  Last week, he brought us the follow up… The Dark Knight Rises.  Would it live up to the hype?  Could it possibly be an appropriate sequel to such a critically acclaimed movie?  I went this week to find out. I can’t launch into any sort of discussion without … Continue reading

On A Break With A Ninja = Vendetta

V For Vendetta (2005)

V For Vendetta (2005) Another story from comic legend Alan Moore.  Watching this movie I couldn’t help see the similarities with Watchmen (a post “bad shit” look at a city) and recognize just how fucked up Moore really must be.  Natalie Portman plays a great role here as does Hugo Weaving (though he’s clad the entire movie in a mask so all you’re hearing is his iconic voice).  At times this was a very slow … Continue reading

The Last Couple Of Flicks

The King Of Kong (2007)

It’s been a while since I’ve done any movie reviews.  Hell it’s been a while since I’ve done any posting at all, but that’s another story.  Since my last review, I’ve seen a couple of movies and I figured I’d put them in one nice little post.  Enjoy! The King Of Kong – A Fistful Of Quarters I actually saw this a while ago and just never got around to writing a post about it … Continue reading

Bend Some Bullets With ‘Wanted’

Wanted (2008)

Being that I’m a comic nerd and a fan of assassin movies I’m pissed that it took me so long to get to this one.  I’ve never read the comic that this flick is based on but I figured that wouldn’t be a problem as it’s “loosely” based on the book from what I hear. Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is stuck in dead end job that he hates.  His world changes when he’s told that … Continue reading

Another Childhood Favorite – ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra’

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

Before I start this review I wanted to give you my Joe credentials.  While I’m not old enough to have had the 12 inch figures I was fanatical when it came to the Hasbro figures and the original Marvel comic books.  I watched the cartoons religiously and remember like it was yesterday when I saw the animated movie for the first time – Cobra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!!!  With that out of the way, on to the review. This … Continue reading

Will I See Transformers? I’m A Child of the 80’s… You Bet!

Transformers - Then And Now

It’s summertime and that means blockbuster movies of the week!  Last night at midnight, the sequel to Michael Bay’s Transformers hit the big screen.  Already this morning the movie is being absolutely slammed in reviews.  It’s being called slow, plodding, etc.  And I can’t wait to see it! For those that don’t know, The Transformers are robots that morph (transform) into vehicles and other objects to blend in to their surroundings.  The property first came … Continue reading
