Dunkirk – Trailer 1

For an ‘EVENT THAT SHAPED OUR WORLD’–emphasis their’s, not mine–I readily admit that I have never heard of this particular conflict in World War II, though I don’t know if that’s due to a failing of the American education system or a de-emphasis of it because it doesn’t seem to directly involve the United States.

Batman Needs To Shed The Cape

Recently DC revealed the latest costume for Batman, via Comicbookresources.  Despite not being a huge fan of either DC Comics or the character, I really like it.  The current iteration of Batman is caped, and while it sticks with tradition, these days it doesn’t quite make sense. The character was originally created in the 1940’s with a design intended […]

There’s No Way Batman Can Take Captain America

Having just seen Avengers: Age of Ultron–review coming soon–can we just accept one thing:  Namely that there is no way on Earth that Batman can take Captain America?

Yeah, I didn’t believe it either, till began to think of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, starting with The Dark Knight Rises backward, and John M. Chu’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which I am currently watching on Netflix. As much as I hate to admit it, Chu captures action much better than Nolan, which almost feel like sacrilege to […]

The Flash – ‘My Name Is…’ Trailer

And […]

‘Interstellar’ Trailer

The British trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar was posted by Warner Bros a few hours ago, and it’s…OK.  It seems that at some point in an indeterminate future we lose the ability to feed ourselves (despite the huge cornfields in the trailer) though luckily Matthew McConaughey is around to pilot a mission to find other habitable worlds.
