Posted: April 25, 2018 at 8:19 am   /   Movie Reviews

It’s here. It’s finally here. For the past ten years, Disney/Marvel has produced eighteen feature films showcasing the likes of our favorite Marvel superheroes. Jon Favreau’s Iron Man was a surprise blockbuster in 2008 carried by a career-resurrecting performance by Robert Downey Jr. and the creative minds at Disney/Marvel (see: Kevin Feige) knew they were […]

6 Movies Featuring Butlers, In Honor of Lee Daniels’ THE BUTLER

Posted: August 16, 2013 at 2:00 pm   /   Film, Local, Top Original Content

This week sees the release of The Butler. A thoughtful, if heavy-handed, piece of Oscar-bait that shows the Civil Rights movement through the eyes of a White House butler who served in seven different presidential administrations. And this got me to thinking about other famous valets we’ve seen on the silver screen. So here’s your […]

Comic Book Reviews: Marvel NOW!

Posted: November 29, 2012 at 1:11 pm   /   Comic Book Reviews, Comic Books, Local

The Marvel Now! relaunch is in full swing.  New creative teams and new titles have launched, and I have taken it upon myself to read almost all of the new titles (you can thank me later).  Notice that I said “RELAUNCH” and not “REBOOT”.  Rather than start all over with a new beginning, as DC has […]

THOR AND CAPTAIN AMERICA GET CONFIRMED SEQUELS

Posted: April 19, 2011 at 7:48 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

Is it just me or are superhero films counting their eggs before they hatch?  I thought it was ridiculous that the studio would green light a GREEN LANTERN sequel before it was even close to hitting theaters, but evedentally that is becoming the norm seeing that THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA are both getting solo sequels.

Robert Downey Jr. Lends His Talents to Dreamworks

Posted: January 17, 2011 at 2:01 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

I am kind of shocked that a studio hasn’t locked down Robert Downey Jr. sooner to do an animated film.  Then again, he really only made his big comeback in 2008 with Iron Man.  The man has got a great voice for animation, and his name will get butts in the seats.  At least that’s […]
