Movie Review: ‘Shazam!’ Starring Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer

Posted: April 5, 2019 at 8:36 am   /   Movie Reviews

I have a confession to make. I’m a little burned out on superhero movies. Now, hear me out. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them. They’re still pretty entertaining, and more often than not, I’ll still go to a theater to see them before they come out on Blu Ray. But I no longer really […]

Blu-Ray Review – “Superman vs. The Elite”

Posted: June 13, 2012 at 1:54 pm   /   DVD/Blu-Ray Reviews, Local

I will continue to praise the work by Bruce Timm and everyone else involved in the DC Universe Animated Films.  While I do not love all of the films, some of them are pretty spectacular including “Wonder Woman”, “Justice League: A New Frontier”, and “Batman: Under the Red Hood”.  I am not a huge Superman […]

DC Moving Forward With ‘Justice League’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ Films

Posted: June 6, 2012 at 10:52 am   /   Local, Movie News

The Avengers has dominated everything.  Domestic box office numbers.  Global box office numbers.  Superhero films.  Every film except for Titanic and Avatar.  Of course this is good news for superhero genre fans like myself.  I love costumed heroes with superpowers, and the success of The Avengers will result in studios wanting to cash in on […]

First Look: CW’s “Arrow”

Posted: March 20, 2012 at 4:40 pm   /   Local, Television

I am not all that familiar with the character Oliver Queen/ Green Arrow.  I have seen the DC animated short that is awesome, and I have seen him in a few “Justice League” episodes.  But that’s all I have seen.  I was slightly surprised when I first heard that CW was shooting a pilot for […]

“Justice League: Doom” is the newest addition to DC’s slate of animated films.  It has a lot of positives going for it including the action, voice acting, animation, and plot set up.  Unfortunately, there are a few key components that will keep this film from being enjoyed by more casual fans of the Justice League.  […]

Robert Downey Jr. as Lex Luthor in Superman Movie?

Posted: February 21, 2012 at 11:02 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

                    I love comic books, and I love most comic book movies.  Unfortunately, I feel like the mass audience does not see the best superhero films.  I believe those have been the animated films put out by both DC and Marvel.  “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm” […]

Warner Brothers and DC Still Pushing On With ‘Green Lantern’ Sequel

Posted: June 26, 2011 at 11:33 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I finally saw GREEN LANTERN a couple of days ago.  The nice thing was that I was sufficiently warned.  I read all the negative reviews.  All of the initial excitement for the film had totally went away before sitting down in the theater.  Films are always better with zero expectations.  I have certainly seen worse […]

The Hidden Gem – “Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme”

Posted: December 14, 2010 at 12:50 am   /   Film, Local

“The Hidden Gem” is all about my personal favorite films.  And while some of the films I discuss may not be hidden to most movie fans, they are hidden to a majority of my friends and people that I have talked to.  So I want to discuss them for three reasons: 1. Tell you why […]
