Brightburn – Trailer Into Reaction

This is an AMAZING trailer on so many levels.  First off, it reads as a retelling of the Superman origin story, which can’t be an accident. Though what’s even more interesting is that it reads as if said origin were reinterpreted by Zach Snyder.   I honestly don’t know what to think about it, except […]

Shazam – Official Teaser Trailer (SDCC)

Much to my surprise, I enjoyed the first teaser for Shazam out of San Diego Comic-Con. And while I still think Zachary Levi–visually speaking–isn’t a great choice for the role (he’s just not, physically speaking, massive enough, making the copious amount of muscle padding he has to wear look more goofy than heroic. This is […]

Aquaman – Official Trailer (SDCC)

Let me be clear: I think Zach Snyder ruined the DCEU (which isn’t for a moment to imply that he did it alone. He had plenty of help from executives that were apparently so ignorant of their own IP that they let Snyder–whom no matter what he says in public does not like these characters–ruin […]

Did Solo Really ‘Bomb’ In China?

Words matter, so if you read ‘China Box Office: ‘Solo’ Bombs With Third-Place $10.1M Opening’ from The Hollywood Reporter you’re likely to assume that the movie failed there. And in a sense it did, though Star Wars movies since being purchased by Disney have underperformed in the Middle Kingdom before–Rogue One: A Star Wars Story […]

You Can’t Be Missed If You Won’t Go Away

I just read an article about how Zach Snyder’s plans for the DCEU were supposedly so “epic, grand, emotional, joyful and unforgettable” which bothers me more than a little bit because we’re hearing more about Snyder’s plans for this and intentions for that now than when Justice League was actually in theaters. As I have […]

Day of the Dead: Bloodline – Review 

While you can get away with calling Day of the Dead: Bloodline a ‘reimagining’ of George Romero’s classic, there’s nothing ‘bold’ about it (in fact, it’s such a loose interpretation that ‘Generic Zombie Thriller’ would work just as well). Part of what made Romero’s movies so horrific (in the best possible way) was his penchant […]

Black Widow Will Be A Huge Hit (If A Few Things Are Taken Into Account)

The upcoming Black Widow movie has a lot going for it–2017’s Wonder Woman has proven that a female-led superhero movie can not only be profitable, but revered bay both critics and moviegoers alike–but that doesn’t mean that it should take some very significant advantages for granted. First there’s Scarlett Johannson, who’s shown with 2014’s Lucy that a […]
