This post is based on (admittedly) thin evidence, though there is a logic.
According to Superherohype, Mads Mikkelson (Hannibal) will have a role in Scott Derrickson’s upcoming Marvel Studios feature, Doctor Strange. Assuming that to be true, they also let slip a little more information than they may have intended, because they also mention that he’ll be playing a villain. And since Baron Mordo is taken, there’s only one […]
How much of what analysts do is about ego?
“Ant-Man Shows That Great Things Come In Small Packages.” Considering how well put together Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man is, it’s a shock that just a few months ago a lot of people were talking about how it would be Marvel Studios’ first misstep. And I can understand–prior to having seen the movie– how one could come […]
I fully admit that the success of Jurassic World caught me by surprise. I didn’t necessarily think that it would fail, though if anyone had told me that it would be breaking records made by 2014’s The Avengers I would have laughed at such a ridiculous notion. That being said, what’s in its way even […]
James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy was without a doubt one of the best movies of 2014. Marvel Studios’ motley group of space heroes was certainly a surprise, though like any other movie there were things that could have been improved.

Their approach to television have been a bit more tentative. Currently they have only one show, Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (MAOS) on ABC (Disney owns both Marvel Studios […]
James Gunn, the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy, has some interesting words for studios that create cinematic universes based on weak properties, and it’s worth reading. I mention it because Jurassic Park has spawned two sequels, Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Jurassic Park III so perhaps the time has arrived for a relaunch […]
The Equalizer is going to be a monster, despite the R-rating. Denzel Washington is as reliable as it gets, as far as consistently entertaining actors go. I also like how the characters that he tends to play don’t overcompensate in terms of their physicality, by which I mean you can see from the trailer that Washington is […]
As Above, So Below, let’s be clear, isn’t a particularly good movie, but it is a damned entertaining one. The story, such as it is, revolves around Scarlett (Perdida Weeks), who’s searching for the clues that would lead her to the Philosopher’s Stone, which I should mention that her father was also searching for, before he hung himself.
