Marvel’s ANT-MAN Opens Number 1, Yet Lowest Gross Since THE INCREDIBLE HULK. What Does That Mean?

Posted: July 21, 2015 at 9:09 am   /   Film, Local, Movie News, Movie Reviews

By now, we’ve all grown used to the idea that any new Marvel movie is capable of topping the box office and leading ticket sales worldwide, if not setting a new record for an opening weekend. Time and time again, the studio pushes out a new superhero adventure only to set its own bar higher, […]

Posted: November 11, 2013 at 3:10 pm   /   Film, Local, Reel Spoilers

This week on Reel Spoilers it’s “hammer time”. See what we did there? We’re talking about Thor who has a hammer. But then we made a nostalgic ‘90s reference because everyone loves those. You’re welcome. What else can we say about Thor? It’s not exactly like we can fact check the thing. This ain’t Captain […]

Movie Review: ‘The Wolverine’ Starring Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Svetlana Khodchenkova

Posted: July 26, 2013 at 6:22 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

The Wolverine. When mentioning a solo Wolverine movie, one can’t help but remember the atrocity that was X-Men: Origins Wolverine. Another argument could be made that all of the previous X-Men movies (with the exception of First Class) were in essence movies about Wolverine, but they just happened to have other mutants running around. With […]

Review: Marvel’s ‘Iron Man 3’ Draws From ‘Extremis’ Comics, Pits Tony Stark Against Mandarin and Aldrich Killian

Posted: May 3, 2013 at 9:20 am   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Iron Man 3. This officially marks the beginning of phase 2. For the uninitiated, phase 2 is simply a way of referencing Marvel movies that take place post the events of The Avengers. Iron Man 3 (directed by Shane Black) is the final entry (for now) of a now beloved franchise. For those keeping track, Iron […]

New Photos From X-MEN Spinoff ‘The Wolverine’ Starring Hugh Jackman

Posted: April 18, 2013 at 9:36 pm   /   Coming Soon, Film, Local

It is unfortunate that 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine was so bad. After Brian Singer’s X-MEN and X-2 reintroduced superhero movies into the mainstream, X-Men: The Last Stand ended up in Brett Ratner’s hands and was ultimately a disappointment. Origins was the chance to focus on the most popular character in the franchise, Wolverine, and also […]

The Long Box – Comic Book Casting: The Punisher

Posted: February 9, 2013 at 5:53 pm   /   Comic Books, Film, Local

The Punisher has been in what I like to call “movie jail”.   Despite three feature films, it has never found traction with audiences or critics.  In 1989, the first film starred Dolph Lundgren and went straight to video (never a good sign). The second was released in theaters in 2004 and starred Thomas Jane. […]
