Warner Bros Just Don’t Get It…Suicide Squad Edition

  Apparently executives at Warner Bros/DC Films don’t understand that people don’t want murky, unheroic super beings–be they heroes or in this instance, villains. I mention it because reviews have begun to come in for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and they’re not…very…good. To be fair, they’re mixed so some that aren’t as bad, such as (on […]

Ghostbusters Reviews Are Filtering In And…

Ghostbusters reviews are filtering in, and they’re…decidedly mixed. Which is problematic, especially when you take into account that there are apparently a lot of people that take issue with the whole gender swap at the heart of the movie. Another is that its budget is somewhere in the ballpark of  $150 million.  That’s not a […]

X-Men Apocalypse Wobbles To The Finish

I’ve said for a long time now that Fox doesn’t know how to manage the Marvel Studios properties–currently the X-Men and the Fantastic Four–that they currently control. So what do they do? They go and prove me right.  X-Men: Apocalypse, after a Memorial Day premiere of $79.8 million–enough to beat the competition handily–fell a dizzying 66 […]

Independence Day: Resurgence Extended Trailer

I’ve said it before, but with movies like Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse it’s hard for other movies to get any oxygen, particularly big-budget tentpoles like Warcraft and Independence Day: Resurgence Mixed reviews certainly don’t help, like in the case of Warcraft though I honestly think that people are getting tired […]

3 Things Warner Bros Should Do To Fix The DCEU

Indeed. Opinions are just like buttholes.  By DCEU, I mean the DC Extended Universe (which sounds to me like someone’s working really hard not to sound in any way similar to Marvel Studios’ MCU or Marvel Cinematic Universe). In any case, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has earned just over $868 million at the […]

Assassin’s Creed – Trailer 1

How is it that Jimmy Kimmel manages to get the trailers for the biggest movies of summer before anyone else? From Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange and many others, Kimmel’s show is where they first appeared. The latest is for Assassin’s Creed, which is based on a […]

Captain America: Civil War -Review

And Yes, it’s as good as you hear it is. And there are ways to program against the box-office behemoth that is Captain America: Civil War, though pitting it against another superhero movie is probably not it. In other words, I’m saying Warner Bros moving Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from the same release date was, […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them – Teaser Trailer 2

Off the top of my head, I think that I may have seen two Harry Potter movies, though the only one I remember is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (mainly because it was directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who did the remarkable Children of Men–one of those rare movies significantly better than the books that inspired them–more so than […]

Batman V Superman Reviews Are Coming In…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reviews have been filtering in for the last day or two, and while they’re not all terrible–after all, someone probably even liked Hitler’s paintings–they’re pretty disastrous considering that there are literally millions, if not potentially billions, riding on its success. I intend to catch it tomorrow, and will post a review as […]
