5 characters no one's ever heard of and that chick everyone dressed up as for Halloween.

5 characters no one’s ever heard of and that chick everyone dresses up as for Halloween.

 

Fresh off the heels of the somehow successful “Batman V Superman”, DC continues to expand it’s cinematic universe with a movie about a bunch of characters that even a hardcore comic book fan such as myself is not even entirely sure he’s ever heard of. “Suicide Squad” is a movie, and that might be the best statement I can make about it.  OK, that’s a lie.  It certainly wasn’t bad, in fact it came close to being good. Unfortunately too much Jared Leto and a villain that made no freaking sense ruins everything.

Which Team Of Heroes Can Look The Saddest?

Not Sure What We’re Fighting For But Let’s Do It!

 

If you needed a comic book movie that would wash the taste of “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Whatever” out of your mouth (Even though it really wasn’t that bad but it still should have made you sad for the future of humanity) then watching “Captain America: Civil War” is everything you could have asked for.  And I have to say, that upon a first viewing this may have been the best comic book movie ever.  How is that possible? Well, it’s been three days since I watched it and still can’t think of anything that’s wrong with it so holy crap guys this might be it.

Oh shit, this movie could have been awful.

Batman reading the reviews of this movie.

Holy crap guys, I went to see “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” last night.  I think the title needs a few more words because I don’t think it’s quite clear what this movie is about.  I really looked forward to hating this movie and based on everything I had read, it had sounded like this might be the last comic book movie that DC Comics ever made. But, despite it’s best efforts I actually enjoyed a good portion of this film. To be fair, when you make a two and a half hour movie you can fill it with lots of awful crap and still have it be somewhat enjoyable.

Movie Review: Deadpool

Reading this review and plotting my demise.

 

It’s going to be hard to make sarcastic comments about a movie that went out of it’s way to make sarcastic comments about itself while also kind of mocking the entire superhero genre but I will try.  I saw “Deadpool” Monday because that’s how I like to celebrate President’s Day. I laughed a lot, and also cried a little but for unrelated reasons. Check out my mostly spoiler free review below!

Worse heroes ever.  More like best movie ever.  Warner Bros released the official Suicide Squad trailer about an hour ago, and nerds everywhere collectively rejoiced.  The A-List star power in this movie is off the charts.  Suicide Squad has the potential to unseat The Dark Knight as the standard in “comic book movies”.  Check out the trailer after the jump:

On a last-minute invitation this past Friday, I went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens with my neighbor and a few of his friends.  I’ve seen the original 3 films a couple of times, but never saw any of the additional 3 films in their entirety.  I’m not a Star Wars fan, or a Trekkie for that matter, but I feel like I’d weigh in on the box office record shattering film. (CAUTION: THIS ARTICLE WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FROM HERE ON OUT)

Star Wars; The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Last night, a moment building for 10 years finally came, and without giving too much…or anything away. I loved it.

Now it’s hard to really write a full review, but I stayed away from the Hollywood reviews in fear of even the smallest detail slipping out. My only comment is that the movie was made the right way. I will, however, go into detail of the experience, because it was nothing short of electric. Read the rest of this entry »

The latest installment to the MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE (and you have to type that it all capital letters or you don’t mean it), “Ant-Man” hit theaters last week and on Tuesday afternoon I got to view it. The guy sitting next to me at the theater fell asleep but that probably had nothing to do with the movie. Spoilers ahead….kind of.

This scene might have saved the movie.

I’m a little late to this party, plus I saw the film last week but I feel a review is necessary.  I wasn’t really a fan of any of the first “Jurassic Park” movies. I suppose the first one is OK, helped by the fact that the greatest actor of all time Jeff Goldblum (See above) is in it.  Now we come to this movie which seems to live by the notion of “Hey, remember that terrible idea we had one time? Well let’s do it again but even bigger!”.  This movie also should have been called “Increasingly Bad Decisions By Corporate America”.

I was doing comic book movie reviews on here for a while but started slacking off after seeing “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”.  I only recently caught up on the rest of 2014 by watching “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”.  Quick review: One was awesome, one was an abomination.  Last night though, I got to see “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” at a sold out theater on Long Island.   Full disclosure, I saw the first Avengers movie at a midnight showing with a bunch of nerds (No offense) and kind of hated it.  I have since watched it again on TV and hated it less tough.   Read the rest of this entry »
