REview – Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

While I’ve never been a believer in the idea of franchise fatigue as far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes I can see how people might get tired of anything if it becomes too commonplace. Which is almost the dictionary definition of Spider-Man as he’s appeared in feature films. After the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy […]

Why I Didn’t See Aquaman In Theaters

I haven’t seen Aquaman in theaters–despite it featuring one of my favorite characters, Black Manta–because, as far as the DCEU (or whatever they choose to call it) I’m done. Under ‘creative genius’ Zach Snyder I felt that there was so little faith in these characters that they were Batman and Superman in name only. Yet […]

And that’s entirely possible, though the reasons […]
