When I caught Spider-Man: Far From Home in theaters I admit that I was in it primarily for Mysterio, one of my favorite villains. That being said, I didn’t expect to be introduced to the latest Sony/Marvel superhero sensation, Night Monkey! Easily the best thing about the movie, Night Monkey may not be a name […]
Let’s be clear: I think Disney+ is a terrible idea from a business perspective. They’re literally paying billions to establish a streaming service–keep in mind they already own Hulu–when sans the streaming network, they could be selling their content to whomever was willing to pay for it.

2004’s Blade: Trinity was the nadir of the Blade franchise, and while I can’t wait for the relaunch of the character with Mahershala Ali I have to wonder what could have come of the franchise if David Goyer hadn’t effectively killed it.

This. Movie. Is. Way. Too. Expensive. I don’t know why it […]
I’ll be the first to admit that 2014’s Maleficent wasn’t the movie for me, which is why I expect it’s sequel will also not be to my liking. And that’s perfectly okay because the first movie earned just over $758 million dollars worldwide. In other words, they’re doing just fine without my two cents.
The trailer of Spider-Man: Far From Home dropped this morning, and it’s glorious. There’s a bit too much Iron Spider for my liking–I don’t necessarily mind an Iron Man-ized Spider-Man, but it’s not exactly my favorite thing. That being said, we learn more about Quentin Beck, otherwise known as Mysterio, about how he came to […]
