X-Men: Dark Phoenix – Teaser Trailer

Let’s start by being honest:  I can’t stand what Fox is doing with the X-Men just as much as I can’t stand when Sony–when left to their own devices–tends to end up doing with Spider-Man. Which is ruining them. And before you bring up Deadpool, that movie was an aberration and something that if the […]

Deadpool, Meet Cable Trailer

The latest trailer for Fox’s Deadpool 2 dropped a few hours ago, and it’s pretty funny.  As usual, Deadpool shows a wanton disregard for not only propriety, but the third wall, which he demolishes with aplomb. And while I don’t think it’s necessary for this movie–or any superhero movie for that matter–to have an R […]

And I would read–though perhaps devour is a […]

‘Jurassic World’ Teaser Trailer

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 Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Superbowl Trailer

I really want to like this movie, but I am a little sensitive since being trade raped the last time.  Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man film was such as colossal mess that the honorable thing to do would have been to take it out back and shoot it. Yes.  Watching “The Amazing Spider-Man” felt exactly like […]
