Imagine Spider-Man, mixed with the presentation skills of Batman, and you have Antboy (and let’s be honest, being bit by an ant and getting superpowers is just as plausible – and nonsensical – as a radioactive spider). And as critical as I tend to be of how Spider-man managed to create such an awesome costume, […]
I think Marvel Studios “The Avengers” is – so far – the best superhero film ever made. It takes itself seriously enough that it doesn’t come off as silly, yet remembers that this stuff is based on comic books, which were originally geared toward children (though in places like Japan – and to an extent […]
Feeling kinda ‘meh’ about “The Wolverine.” The only thing that interests me is Silver Samurai – there are a few shots of him in the trailer – and all he is is a guy in silver samurai armor. I guess what interests me is how faithful they are to the comic character.

And in other news, the sky is blue, and dinosaurs have been gone (except Nessie) for a long, long time. This is good news […]
