Mania Review: Gone Girl (Article) - 10/4/2014 7:21:59 PM

 I expected a thriller, but I didn't expect elements of a Satire, that elevated this film for me. It took itself seriously, but not too seriously. A very thin wire to walk. I must admit, I figured out the first twist almost immediately, but the second one completely shocked me. Wow. Overall, good film. 

The 25th Anniversary of Batman (Article) - 6/23/2014 10:43:06 AM

My 13 yr old and I just watched this together the other day. It was his first time seeing it, and the first time I had seen it since it originally came out.

And I have to say, it really wasn't that good. My son went as far to say that it wasn't much better than the Joel Schulmacker flicks. That's what Nolan Batman does. It reframes everything.

Commissioner Gordon played by Pat Hingle? And what was with half the story being about Rober Whurl's reporter character? And it's just painfully obvious that every scene is shot in a studio.

Were there a few good parts? Yep. But overall, I feel the film simply doesn't hold up.

Mania Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past (Article) - 5/23/2014 5:35:32 PM

Let's not forget, gang, that Mathew Vaughn is credited as one of two dirctors for this movie. Let's not only sing Singer's praises, here. And Vaughn was one of the key writers,

And a billion times better than the corny Spiderman movie I had to endure several weeks back. Yeesh.

Mania Review: X-Men: Days of Future Past (Article) - 5/23/2014 5:25:41 PM

Just saw it. Loved it. The best X-Men so far, although I agree with the reviewer in that I like the way First Class was made. Felt more real. But still, this movie is clearly one of the top comic book movies of all time. No sense comparing it to Cap, they are just two entirely different movies, both awesome in their own way.

NEW Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer (Article) - 5/22/2014 7:32:28 PM

Love the music, btw. I hope it's throughout the movie and not just primarily in the trailers.

This. Looks. Awesome.

I pooped my pants a lil' bit.

24: Live Another Day: 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Review (Article) - 5/22/2014 7:19:14 PM

Samson, I think Heller's weakened state has him second-guessing all his decisions. But it kind of bugged me, anyway. Overall, a good episode, though. What mommy dearest did to her daughter to get her husband to comply was INTENSE!

GAME OF THRONES: Mockingbird Review (Article) - 5/22/2014 7:15:08 PM

The Tyrion and Prince Oberyn scene was one of the best moments I've ever seen on film. The story of when he was a baby ranks right up there with any classic Greek tragedy.

DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 5/16/2014 8:53:35 AM

"In 2012, Marvel CCO Joe Quesada thought Namor's film rights had reverted to Marvel, but it was later revealed by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in August 2013 that this was not the case, and the rights remained at Universal Pictures."
