Trailer Into REaction – Code 8 | Official Trailer

Jeff Chan’s Code 8 began life as a short movie, and having watched most of it, it’s REALLY faithful to the trailer for the movie. For comparison’s sake, here’s the original short film… And my reaction to the recently released trailer. And let’s be honest, Code 8 is essentially the X-Men, and that’s okay because […]

Venom – Official Trailer # 2

Having just watched the latest trailer for Sony’s–In Association With Marvel!–Venom I have to admit that I like it a lot more than the first. Though the American accent Tom Hardy appears to be ruining? Not so much. But don’t misinterpret my meaning. I still think Venom–and the other characters of the SpiderVerse–belong with Marvel […]

The Gifted – Trailer

The Gifted is the second series begat from the deal between Marvel Entertainment and Fox and it’s curiously conventional-looking, especially compared to Legion (the first series launched on sister channel, FX).

4 Reasons Fox Is Ill-Equipped To Handle Their Marvel Franchises

And at the time, they were probably right. Though times change–though thankfully not […]

Logan – Official Trailer

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 […]

The Magnificent Seven – Official Trailer

  I think that Warner Bros, possibly with the exception of the upcoming Suicide Squad is terribly mismanaging their DC Films relationship (and Yes, I include the upcoming Wonder Woman in that estimation as well)–like Fox is doing with the X-Men franchise, only less successfully. But Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven? With Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt? Money […]
