I’m sure you’ve seen the Captain America: Civil War commercials on TV and, in preparation for what is (for me) the most anticipated movie of the year, I bring you the fourth episode of Quick Reviews, a look at the first Captain America movie, The First Avenger.

Film noir is back in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. They didn’t forget the gratuitous violence, striking images or that whole ‘this is in color, this is in black and white’ stylization thing they do, either. If you’re up for this kinda ride, join me after the jump! Read the rest of this entry
Disney’s Big Hero 6 is kinda the epicenter for a fun action adventure film that’s slanted toward a family audience: it’s sweet, original and completely safe while still being a good time. Read the rest of this entry
So… yeah. Wow.
It seems as though Avengers: Age of Ultron is the beginning of the end of the Age of Heroes (or whatever it’s called in the Marvel Movieverse) and the beginning of a Civil War era… at least, it looks like the heroes are fighting amongst themselves in the trailer. Read the rest of this entry
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.
I don’t know why, but if a movie studio sets out to make a superhero movie with a female protagonist, they’re bound to f@ck it up, because Hollywood has done this every single time they’ve tried. Check out the Fatal Five, these Superhero Movies with a Female Protagonist that are all completely and utterly TERRIBLE. Read the rest of this entry
I gotta say, X-Men: Days of Future Past looks like fun! Lots of good actors (Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart just to name a few), superpowers, time travel… What else could you ask for in an action movie? Well, it has giant robots, too, so we should be well covered. But probably more so than any other comic book movie sequel, here’s one you need to do your homework for. In effort to get you prepared, here are my reviews and scores for all of the X-Men movies! Read the rest of this entry
Since we’re all gearing up to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (for better or worse), I thought now would be a good time to check in with the Tobey Maguire trilogy and the first episode of the reboot.
For those that are pressed for time, I’ll just let you know the scores here and if you’re interested in more details, just click the movie title for the full review.
I gave the first Spider-Man movie a 7.8 out of ten, and Spider-Man 2 came in with a nearly identical score of 7.5 out of 10. Finally, Spider-Man 3, that which is so loathsome to so many, clocked in at a meager 5 out of 10 because that movie kinda sucks. Then, The Amazing Spider-Man reboot didn’t exactly get the franchise started with a roar by earning just a 6 out of 10. Finally, if you give a crap, here’s my review of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark.
