POWER RANGERS (2017) Movie Review

It is astonishingly refreshing to view a superhero movie reboot with no preexisting deep connections nor substantial knowledge base of the original. I went into POWER RANGERS with absolutely no expectations. Batman and the N...


JUSTICE LEAGUE 1st Full Trailer!!!

After teasing us for the past few days with brand-new footage a few seconds-at-a-time of newcomers like the Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Warner Bros. finally unveiled their first full-leng...


THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE Movie Review

THE LEGO MOVIE is a tough act to follow.  It was an inventive, heartfelt and hilarious tale that could have easily been nothing more than a cash-in on a popular brand name.  It took the basic premise of the ever-expanding Leg...



LOGAN Movie Review

Be warned, spoilers ahead… It’s hard to believe that Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine would never have been possible if not for a last-minute schedule conflict.  Originally, Dougray Scott was cast in the role for Br...


ASSASSIN’S CREED Movie Review

Video game movies have never really had a fair shot, have they?  That’s at least how I see it.  Whether they’re hilarious train wreck adaptations of the source material (SUPER MARIO BROS., STREET FIGHTER) or ente...


BLADE RUNNER 2049 Announcement Trailer!

“I have seen things you people wouldn’t believe.”- Roy Batty I knew this was coming.  I’d heard the rumblings.  I’d heard about the return of Harrison Ford and Ridley Scott to the fold.  I’...



Brand-New WONDER WOMAN Trailer! PLEASE BE GOOD!!!

As much as the entries in the recently-established DC Extended Universe have run the gamut of my emotions, ranging from “Meh, okay” (MAN OF STEEL) to “I’m conflicted” (SUICIDE SQUAD) to “Oh, ...


THE ACCOUNTANT Movie Review

NOTE: Some SPOILERS ahead! I kinda feel like this is how the propulsion of THE ACCOUNTANT to the big screen all went down: one day, Matt Damon bet longtime buddy Ben Affleck that he couldn’t manage his own version of eith...


IIIIIIIII’m…Hooked on the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 Sneak Peek!

Break out your own personal “Awesome Mix” cassette tapes, folks!  Marvel Studios sprung a surprise “sneak peek” on us for director James Gunn’s sequel to 2014’s surprise hit blockbuster GUA...



New ROGUE ONE Trailer…Just Gimme The Movie Already!

Words escape me right now.  I was already jazzed enough for this flick to kick-off the STAR WARS Anthology series of films that would explore the stories within the original stories, but this new ROGUE ONE trailer has got me f...


TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS Movie Review

Turtles.  It’s just…Turtles. This isn’t DEADPOOL with meta-humor and hilarious-yet-heartfelt vulgarity.  It isn’t BATMAN V SUPERMAN with a gritty visual palette and self-serious characters.  It isn...


New 52 BATMAN #1-51 (The Snyder/Capullo Run) Comic Book Review

I’d be lying if I said DC Comics’ 2011 campaign to revitalize their stable of characters with a clean-slate reboot dubbed the “New 52” was a rousing success.  At best, it was a lukewarm endeavor that ma...



Ladies & Gentlemen…Meet Your New HAN SOLO!

First-shooters rejoice!  Although it appears elderly Han Solo (played by Harrison Ford) is now lounging in that big Cantina in the sky following the events of THE FORCE AWAKENS, it seems that Lucasfilm and Disney have finally ...


First Look at New POWER RANGERS Reboot Suits!

I was never really a MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS kid growing up.  I got the basic premise: 5 teenagers are hand-picked by a benevolent alien force to do battle against an evil alien force by transforming into Japanese ̶...


Japan’s GODZILLA RESURGENCE Movie Trailer!!!

Uh…I guess with it also being the summer for a shload of superhero movies, it is also the summer for properties that Roland Emmerich handled in the past (one successfully, one poorly) to slap the word “Resurgence...



TMNT: MUTANTS IN MANAHATTAN Video Game Announced with Trailer!

When it comes to videos games, the Turtles have have a hit-or-miss record.  On one hand you’ll have the classic cabinet arcade games and their equally successful console adaptations like TURTLES IN TIME.  On the other, ...


TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS Movie Trailer

No doubt: 2014’s reboot of the Heroes in a Half-Shell was a dumb movie, but it did end up making a ton of moolah at the box office.  In the vein of Michael Bay’s other “80’s nostalgia” property (...


Netflix and Marvel’s JESSICA JONES Season 1 Review

Can we please just spend a year or two focusing only on Netflix-based Marvel shows, Marvel Studios?  In fact, that’s not so much a question as a demand.  Marvel Studios, you will focus all of your creative energy into d...



BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT (& some DLC) Fashionably Late Video Game Review

NOTE: This review of the Xbox One version of the game (100% completion) may contain potential SPOILERS for those who haven’t yet taken their dose of fear toxin.  Read at your own risk! I love the world of Batman.  It&...


THE LAST WITCH HUNTER Movie Review

In all seriousness, if you’re going into a Vin Diesel-starring vehicle with such an on-the-nose title as THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, you’re not expecting Shakespeare or CITIZEN KANE.  At best, you’re hoping to be ...
