The Scarlet Witch (And Why She’s So Awesome)

I I get the feeling that a lot of people may not liked the fate of the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) but one has to admit she was all sorts of awesome in the movie. From her introduction in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – though […]

Does Anyone Care About ‘Stranger Things 4?’

Apparently Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 suffered a promotional mishap when a Monopoly game based on the series revealed major plot points for the upcoming season. And while that isn’t good for anybody, who’s still watching this show!? As far as I’m concerned it lost steam after its second season never mind the insanity of each […]

REview: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

While I enjoyed 2016’s Doctor Strange I wish that it had been…well…weirder. And to be fair there was quite a burden on director Scott Derrickson’s shoulders, namely now to introduce a character that’s amongst the weirdest in Marvel’s stable, but do so in a manner that doesn’t turn off people who’re grown accustomed to their […]

Will Warner Bros Throw Good Money After Bad?

According to Box Office Mojo, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore earned just over $334 million worldwide, which is a lot of money till you take into account that it cost $200 million to produce, which makes it a failure, box office-wise (what I like to think of as ‘soft’ failure, in that there’s clearly […]

There’s No Such Thing As ‘Cancel Culture’

I’ve been working through a respiratory infection – it isn’t COVID though I imagine it’s just as unpleasant – though I’m trying to get back up to speed and this is as good a place as any to start. You might have heard recently that storied actor Frank Langella was recently fired from Netlflix’s The […]

Worldwide Box-Office Sucks The Life From ‘Morbius’

When movies were released at the height of the pandemic one could easily blame their underperforming on people being leery of catching the virus. Nowadays? COVID is hanging – and mutating – on but economies all over the world seem to be coming back to life, emerging like a bear from deep hibernation. This was […]

Four Reasons ‘The Matrix Resurrections’ Was A Failure

When I saw The Matrix in 1999 my mind was blown because it managed to innovate visually (in terms of special effects) and intrigue in terms of story. People fighting and shooting each other in some combination of black leather/latex? Seen it before in Blade just a year earlier yet somehow The Matrix managed to […]

Tron 3 Is – Seemingly – Still in Development

I really enjoyed Tron (1982) – particularly the Wendy Carlos soundtrack – and didn’t mind the sequel, Tron: Legacy (2010), though I eventually came to appreciate it. Which exactly mirrored my feelings toward Daft Punk’s soundtrack and to this day I wondered if there was some reason she didn’t return for the sequel (beyond the […]
