X-Men: Dark Phoenix – Teaser Trailer

Let’s start by being honest:  I can’t stand what Fox is doing with the X-Men just as much as I can’t stand when Sony–when left to their own devices–tends to end up doing with Spider-Man. Which is ruining them. And before you bring up Deadpool, that movie was an aberration and something that if the […]

The Joke(r)’s On You

You might have heard that Warner Bros is making a movie based on Batman’s arch nemesis, the Joker. Now here’s the punch line: This version of the Joker exists entirely outside of DC continuity! Now keep in mind the DCEU (the DC Cinematic Universe) has a version of the Joker, and he was introduced in […]

Bumblebee – New Official Trailer

When you were a child and the first time you saw a bee and chased after it, because that’s what children do–or maybe pulled a dog’s tail–you had no real idea what was going or happen, though you likely learned from that initial (potentially painful) experience. That in a nutshell is how I feel about […]

The Predator – Review

Sun Sets on Cavill’s Superman?

Apparently, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Henry Cavill is out as Superman. There are quite a few reasons stated (scheduling issues, problems negotiating a cameo in Warner Bros upcoming Shazam!, delays in ramping up a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel, etc) and while–if this is true because it bears repeating that this is not […]

The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time – Final Trailer

I don’t know why I’m so annoyed with the trailer for the last Sharknado–fittingly titled The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time (not to be confused with Amityville 1992: It’s About Time, which I recall being a pretty good movie). After all, none of the Sharknado movies ever pretended to be realistic, which is good when you consider […]

Constantine: City Of Demons – Trailer

I’ve never thought that Matt Ryan’s portrayal of John Constantine was a particularly good one, though I don’t blame him more than the casting. For a start, Constantine is the comics is physically lanky and more roguish than Ryan played him. Ryan says all the right things, but never quite does so convincingly. Then there’s […]
