I Could Do This All Day…

I’ve never been a fan of Captain America: The First Avenger.  It’s not a bad movie more than a narratively muddy one that never quite comes clear. Though there are some moments you can see the potential of the character shine through–such as what I like to call the ‘bully’ scene–but on the whole doesn’t […]

Doctor Strange End Titles Score

I’d be the first person to admit that the scores for most Marvel Studios movies have been less than memorable (at this point only two tracks from Henry Jackman’s theme to Captain America: The Winter Soldier stick in my mind at, and those are ‘Winter Soldier’ and ‘Lemurian Star’) and that’s taking into account ALL […]

The Second Week Curse Strikes Suicide Squad!

Which, if you follow Warner Bros. and DC Films is pretty much par for the course because, as big as the 67.3 percent fall for Suicide Squad was, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice performed even worse, declining 69 percent. And this is problematic because it all the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) movies so far have lacked legs, and declined precipitously in […]

(Bruce) Wayne’s World

I didn’t particularly like the first two trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice  because they’re both filed with much bombast and thunder–as far as I can tell–signifying very little.  And I might be reading into things a bit, but if feels as if director Zach Snyder equates blowing things up with seriousness, which if that […]

Can We Stop With The ’67 Characters’ Nonsense?

Recently quite a few venues are running with the idea that the Russo brothers (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War) are going to have 67 characters in their upcoming two-parter. Avengers: Infinity War. This is, on the face of it, nonsensical because last time I checked Marvel Studios haven’t even introduced […]
