Wonder Woman: the Hero Warner Bros Needed, but Not the One it Deserved

Wonder Woman opened on June 2nd to something Warner Brothers wasn’t used to: Good reviews.  With the studio taking death blows from critics with each new release (seriously go read the reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad) they needed a hero (and a hit film) that could shield them.  Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is that hero. I’ve written before about how this film could be game changing in a Hollywood where men rule; from studio heads, directors, and top... Read More

Baywatch (2017) Movie Review on The Final Cut

It is the purrfect time to give my thoughts on Baywatch, the 1980s TV-show turned raunchy comedy. Starring Zac Efron and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, find out if this is film floats above the rest or sinks straight to the bottom. Flex your muscles while watching the trailer, get a tan as you check out the official site, and read up on the IMDB info as you relax by the pool. ... Read More

Crisis on Infinite Directors in the DCEU

It looks like Justice League is already getting an Earth-2 alternate universe, because Joss Whedon (Avengers, Serenity) has officially taken over the reigns as director.  The Zack Snyder cut that may have been was sidelined by personal tragedy, and the long tenured DCEU director has officially stepped down.   Out of respect for director Snyder’s family, the details of this event will not appear in this article. Hot off the heels of reshoot rumors (which were later waived off as a hoax),... Read More

Fox is Taking a Mulligan on the Dark Phoenix

Like any good phoenix story, 20th Century Fox plans on raising another from the ashes of defeat.  The film studio recently rolled out some massive upcoming titles, one of which is a sequel to 2016’s cringeworthy X-Men: Apocalypse with the working title “Dark Phoenix”. With the behemoth Marvel Comics Universe  smashing box office records for going on nearly a decade now, every other comic book production company’s been trying to play catch-up despite how...

Exclusive Interview with Deadpool Co-Creator Fabian Nicieza

Ever since his first appearance in The New Mutants #98 in February of 1991, Deadpool has enjoyed a cult following few other comic book characters can boast. Best known for his talkative nature and fourth wall breaks, Deadpool remained in relative mainstream obscurity until Ryan Reynolds single-handedly championed convincing 20th Century Fox to green light the 2016 box office dark horse. Yet, if you’d gone to any comic book convention over the last decade and witnessed the... Read More

Marvel Delivers the Kind of Comic Book Sequel We’ve Been Craving

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. We’re looking at you, trash-pandas. If there was any doubt that Marvel’s handing DC its ass when it comes to cinematic universes, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 should lay it to rest. The best movies, in my opinion, have a sense of self-awareness poor and mediocre ones lack, and this one knows exactly what it is and fully commits to the bit. Guardians of the Galaxy set an extremely high... Read More
