Catwoman movie review

2004’s Catwoman is a mess of pandering, lazy and sloppy writing that the filmmakers hoped would be covered over by Halle Berry’s beauty.  SPOILER ALERT:  it is not.  Read the rest of this entry

Ant-Man quick movie review

Marvel’s Ant-Man is the latest installment (by my count, this is the 11th movie in the franchise) in their Cinematic Universe and is currently soaking up all of the box office money.  Isn’t it amazing that Marvel has just released a movie starring one of its lesser known protagonists and yet it’s still debatable whether or not DC Comics can even get their franchise off the ground?  I digress… frankly, Ant-Man is business as usual (more than usual, actually), but that doesn’t mean it’s not good fun.  Read the rest of this entry

Earth overreacts to Batman themed railroad photo shoot on railroad tracks


This is officially the dumbest thing people have been outraged by so far in 2015.  Yeah, I know – this is a trope from old silent movies, not from Batman! Jeez!
Also, that lady’s clothes are ruined. (PRO TIP:  train tracks are dirty as f@ck.)

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron movie review

I was entertained by Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I also have to rip it to shreds.  There’s a lot to like, but honestly, it’s a bladder punishing two hours and twenty minutes that carries too much bloat.

Marie from Breaking Bad dresses like The Joker


If you watch Breaking Bad, then you know that Marie’s favorite color is purple.  She’s always dressed in purple and everything at Hank and Marie’s house is purple.  Purple rug, purple pillows, purple striped chair, her shopping bags are purple, her effing tea kettle is purple… it never ends.  Maybe the ending of the show should have been Marie pulling the strings because she’s the Breaking Bad universe’s version of The Joker.  Nobody would have seen that coming!

Must resist Batman sleep apparel!


I have entirely too much clothing featuring one Batman logo or another, but it’s got to stop sometime. Still, it’s very tempting. Damn you, Target!

Cosmo gets you the ass you deserve, but not the ass you need right now (?)


Wow, Cosmo – your ability to keep raising your own bar is beyond impressive.  Keep on keepin’ on!

Quick thoughts on the first two episodes of Gotham (TV Review)

The first two episodes of Gotham have given me a feel for the show as it is and where it can go from here. So far… I’m on the fence.

The LEGO Movie (movie review)

Like all art, opinions on The LEGO Movie are entirely subjective. The thing is, almost everyone seems to think it’s a great movie while there are few detractors. Rhett Bartlett (Dial M for Movies) called it "one of the great film disappointments of this decade." That’s going too far for me – my opinion falls closer to the middle of the spectrum.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (quick movie review)

X-Men: Days of Future Past is, for me, fanservice of the highest order. It gives me a cast to squeal over while delivering a compelling story full of comic book lore. Read the rest of this entry

Guardians of the Galaxy (movie review)

We saw Guardians of the Galaxy this past Sunday with a full house at 10:50 AM. The movie is filled with murder, violence, profanity, betrayal, torture, sadness, jokes, pop songs from the 1970s, abduction, deaths of innocents, more murder, more violence… and it’s probably the most fun you’ll have at the movies this year.

“And there’s your blurb,” as Christy Lemire would say.

The Dark Knight (movie review)

The question isn’t really regarding the quality of The Dark Knight but instead, by examining its parts, deciding on its place in history. Is it the best action movie ever? Let’s dig in to the most bountiful Batman movie we’re ever likely to get. Read the rest of this entry
