Batgirl Put On The Shelf!?

In 2021 Warner Bros, then run by Jason Kilar, was purchased by Discovery Communications though prior to the deal being finalized a Batgirl film was in development, and recently completed. Originally the plan was that it was going to premiere on HBOMax, though executives were seemingly so impressed with what they were seeing that it […]

Millie Bobby Brown is Right (Sort of)

Is Millie Bobby Brown British? I’m reasonably certain with a name like that that she isn’t, but in her interview with The Wrap she definitely sounds like she’s ‘putting on airs’ though that’s not what I’m writing about today. What I’m referring to is Brown calling the Duffer Brothers ‘Sensitive Sallies’ over their reluctance to […]

The Green Hornet Revisited

I reviewed 2011’s The Green Hornet and while I thought it wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t faithful enough to the television series it was based on (which ran from 1966-1967 and was a spinoff of Batman, which was cancelled a year later). The problem by my reckoning was more due to the writing by Seth Rogen […]

Does Anyone Care About ‘Stranger Things 4?’

The Problem with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

I genuinely enjoyed Paramount+’s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (the premiere episode is currently on Youtube) because of the three Star Trek series that have been released thus far – I haven’t seen Star Trek: Picard but if what heard from reviews like Half In The Bag I’m not missing much – but there’s a […]

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 […]
