The Last Goodbye-A Review of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies


“It’s over. It’s done.” That sums up my feelings about the final part of the Tolkien saga that Peter Jackson set out to create. It’s been a long and winding journey, but it’s been a great one.

Man or Walrus: A Review of Kevin Smith’s Tusk


Kevin Smith knows how to connect. That’s been proven time and time again. Even if the story doesn’t connect with you, he, as a person, will. He’s quite possibly the most social media adept film maker at the moment. That’s actually why we even have Tusk.  Continue reading

Aside

For the past ten years we have seen more films based of off comic books than we have ever seen before.  This is great! I love most of the films that come out and I will probably see any film … Continue reading

I Made You A Promise : A Review of Arrow Season 2.


arrow season 2

In the past, the show Arrow had been shaky at best. It had its high points and its low points.  It got to the point where some people just gave up on it altogether.  However, for those who stuck around through the good, the bad and the ugly of it all we were treated with quite a surprise when season 2 rolled its way on to our television screens.  So far season 2 has be fantastic.  It has more layers and deeper story and character arcs for everyone.  We are treated to multiple characters from the DC universe, and sometimes the show is a giant easter egg hunt to find out who’s who.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electro Boogaloo


The Spider-Man reboot franchise is very polarizing.  Some people loved the new direction Marc Webb has taken with the series and some think that the Sam Raimi movies should never have been touched.  I am more of a fan of the former. Oddly enough, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is very very different from both the Raimi series and the first film.

Ben Affleck to be Batman


Today (or yesterday, if you’re in a different time zone) (oh, hell. THURSDAY), Warner Brothers announced that Ben Affleck, of Chasing Amy and Argo fame, will be playing the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman/Superman film.

While this seems to have caused a rift in the fanbase, I’m torn. Part of me thinks, OH YES BEN AFFLECK IN THE BATSUIT AND IN SHIRTLESS SCENES WHERE HE’S ALL BRUISED. Another part of me is wondering if he can be dark and brooding enough for the role. Either way, I’m really excited about it.

If I Had Just Ran a Little Faster: A Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Review


flashpointsYou guys know what this is, right? Then you know how annoyed with me you will be when I finish this review.  In any case, if you were not aware (and if you aren’t, you haven’t been paying attention),  The Flash is my favorite DC superhero.  I love everything about him, and I am still working on my collection of all of his comic books from his inception to today.  That is why when I heard they were making a Flashpoint movie, I hardcore geeked out (It was not attractive). (Editor’s note: it wasn’t.)  And now here it is finally! Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Continue reading

Mother Nature is a Serial Killer: A review of World War Z


It is here. After the many production problems and delays, Paramount Pictures’ very risky film World War Z has finally been released! The question is, was it worth the wait? Yes and no.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good zombie movie. I absolutely love 28 Days Later. Hell, I even love the completely awful ones that you just love for no reason. *Cough Cough* Automaton Transfusion *Cough Cough*. Including the completely god awful ones that you just watch to numb your mind. I’m looking at you House of the Dead, I’m looking at you really, really hard. Sometimes a movie zombie movie, or really any genre of movie, will come along and just make you think to yourself for a while if you really enjoyed it. World War Z is that movie for me.
