The final trailer for Brightburn dropped yesterday, and I’m genuinely curious about the movie because I get the feeling that Zach Snyder really wished he could have treated his version of Superman in a similar fashion. Though that’s not quite fair because hate isn’t the opposite of love, apathy is and that was the Snyder’s […]
The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) is adapting the trilogy known as His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass/His Dark Materials, The Subtle Knife & The Amber Spyglass) as a miniseries, which is a really good idea because if the 2007 movie has shown us anything it’s that the material requires room to breathe.

The full trailer for The CW’s Batwoman dropped earlier today and it bothers me. To be honest I feel that way about quite a few things about the trailer but one thing immediately went to the top of the list. And that’s the appearance of a young Lucius Fox (played by Morgan Freeman in the […]

And if there were a definition of the term “teaser trailer” in a text book I wouldn’t be shocked if it referred to the Batwoman teaser because this thing literally tells you nothing at all beyond the obvious. Which is fine since I don’t particularly care about any of the CW shows that I have […]
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.

In 2003 his High Tension (know as Haute Tension in the original French and Switchblade Romance in the U.K.) was described as “Disturbing, demented, gory and one of the best horror films I’ve seen in awhile,” by Felix Vasquez, Jr […]
