The Joker will slay ya in all new Gotham.

You got to love this pre-Batman Batman schtick – everyone and their pet hamster makes an appearance, but here comes a major one – The Joker. A little young, a little unseasoned. But he’ll still slay you. Coming soon in the Gotham episode “The Blind Fortune Teller” – Gordon takes Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin) […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) (Blue-ray film review).

Sony captured Spider-Man a couple of years ago and this is their second rendition of the Marvel comicbook hero. Every year there are blockbusters portraying old Marvel guys, subjects of our fantasies for half a century and, every year, in order not to be outdone, they try to make the best movie ever by surpassing […]

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) (DVD review).

  The second ‘Captain America’ film, ‘The Winter Soldier’, had a lot to live up to after such a successful first film. Like with ‘Iron Man’, it could now move beyond the origin and more with how Steve Rogers (actor Chris Evans) is adjusting to the present after his hibernation. As revealed throughout the story, […]

Iron Man 3 (2013) (DVD review).

If you‘re wondering why it took so long before I reviewed the third ‘Iron Man’ film, then blame some confusion on the Net as to whether the British or American version had the most minutes running time. Even more amazing, it’s taken a considerable time before the DVD had a price drop. Usually, this happens […]

Avengers Confidential – Black Widow And Punisher (DVD review).

The title ‘Avengers Confidential – Black Widow And Punisher’ is a bit of a misnomer. Natasha Romanova (never Romanov even in the original comicbook versions) aka the Black Widow and Frank Castle aka the Punisher aren’t actually working for The Avengers but SHIELD! Well, the Widow’s loyalties were always there but the title would suggest […]

X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014) (film review by Mark R. Leeper).

The scientific complexities of this story may be of more interest than the plot itself. Wolverine is sent back in time to inhabit his old body and try to prevent an anti-mutant from being assassinated. Under Bryan Singer’s direction, we have the most complex ‘X-Men’ film yet, but it does not stand on its own. […]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Marvel Comics’ favorite webslinger is back to his crime-fighting ways as he boldly claims to be amazing but the consensus is anything but what it is advertised in actuality. One could probably label the aptly named director Marc Webb’s comic book caper ‘The Anemic Spider-Man 2′ but then again, this movie title would not go over too […]
