Logan – Trailer# 2

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 […]

Warner Bros Just Don’t Get It…Suicide Squad Edition

  Apparently executives at Warner Bros/DC Films don’t understand that people don’t want murky, unheroic super beings–be they heroes or in this instance, villains.

Netflix doesn’t have the deep pockets of a Twentieth Century Fox–and “House of Cards, and the participation of David […]

Are All Things Really Better In 3D?

Twentieth Century Fox is re-releasing George Lucas’s “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” in 3D in 2012, according to The New York Times. Is such a move going to help the current box office slump? This makes me wonder:  Is adding another dimension to a pretty mediocre movie really going to make a […]
