Justice League Is On Netflix!

2017’s Justice League is on Netflix and with Aquaman rising above expectations to dominate the domestic box office maybe it’s time for another look at the movie that introduced him to the world (though technically that’s 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which I have included a clip from below). A better approach would–if […]

Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bumblebee…

And I know bumblebees don’t sting, but work with me. According to Superherohype Paramount’s Bumblebee has overtaken Warner Bros. Aquaman in international markets. For reasons I’m not entirely sure Aquaman has been performing particularly well, outgrossing Justice League and Wonder Woman cumulatively. Which I find vexing. Part of the issue is that I’ve become accustomed […]

Why I’ll (Likely) Not See ‘Aquaman’

And that’s saying something for a Transformers movie-and short of Netflix or DVD, have no […]

Now I fully admit to finding this somewhat problematic–after all Aquaman is essentially ‘Course Correction: The Movie’–I shouldn’t begrudge DC Films what is likely their second […]

Captive State – Official Trailer

Trust me, this movie has ‘sleeper’ written all over it. A thriller in the vein of V and Colony Captive State revolves around an alien invasion of the country (world?) where some humans are cooperating while others act as a rag-tag resistance. Have we seen this scenario before? Sure, but not recently and with movies […]

Black Manta or Black Man-Duh

I understand the moviemakers sometimes have to sacrifice accuracy for realism when producing something based on a comic book because what looks good in a drawing doesn’t always translate well to real life (which is why we’re likely to NEVER see a comic-accurate Scarlet Witch in the Avengers movies). That being said, the goal should […]
