The final trailer for Dark Phoenix was released a few hours ago, and it looks pretty good. The problem is this isn’t the first trailer and it’s a little late for redemption. And besides, I have seen other movies in the Fox X-Men series, and they’re for the most part mediocre, at best (and X-Men: […]
Twentieth Century Fox’s Logan is indicative of their problems managing their X-Men franchise. Supposedly it’s going to be R-rated, not because Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is a mutant who’s primarily features are a healing factor, Adamantium-coated claws and a bestial nature to match, but because Deadpool had an R- rating, and it gave Fox almost […]
It’s no secret that I don’t particularly like what Fox has done with the Marvel’s X-Men, though take that dislike and double it, and that’s approaches what I feel what they have done with Wolverine. And the worse thing for me is that it’s all about greed. Hugh Jackman’s portrayal (despite that, visually speaking, he’s not […]
SPOILERS ABOUND! IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST GO AWAY TILL YOU HAVE BECAUSE SPOILERS ARE LIKE LANDMINES. THEY’RE HIDDEN TILL YOU STUMBLE UPON THEM, THOUGH BY THAT TIME IT’S TOO LATE, AND SOMETHING IMPORTANT IS LOST.
Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past (review coming soon) just crossed the $500 million dollar barrier, making it the highest grossing of the X-Men films (the link contains spoilers. If you have not seen the movie, ignore it). And my response is: So what. What people seem to be missing is that 20th Century Fox is mismanaging […]
Since I am not willing to pay the ridiculously high prices charged by cable providers, I get my television by computer. One of my favorite shows is Spike TV’s “Inkmaster,” which has a new episode every Tuesday, though it appears on Spike.com the following Saturday. And I have no problem with that, minus the occasion […]
Here’s the complete trailer for James Mangold‘s ‘The Wolverine,” complete with narrative continuity! Here, Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) makes his way to Japan, where it appears that he somehow loses his healing factor, which is bad thing when what looks like hundreds of black pajama-clad ninjas are trying to kill you. There’s a fight on what […]
Here’s the first photo from James Mangold‘s “The Wolverine.” It tells you virtually nothing other than that Hugh Jackman is really, really built. It takes place in Japan, and Silver Samurai is the main bad guy. Speaking of Mangold, if you haven’t seen his “Identity,” rent it. It’s an interesting twist on the traditional horror flick.
I heard a while ago that there would be a sequel to 2004’s Van Helsing, the Hugh Jackman film that (somehow) managed to earn around $300 million dollars worldwide, though I assumed that Universal came to their senses and moved on, since it seemed lost in development hell. Silly me. Sure, it managed to mangle […]
