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...


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

GOTHAM Season 1 Review

 Sigh…GOTHAM.  I…I just didn’t know what to make of you, man. Your series premiere held a lot of promise in its basic concept: a show focusing on the days before Batman came to town and following the exploi...



AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Movie Review

Warning: Minor Spoilers Ahead!! With AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON the Marvel cinematic universe takes a bit of a turn from what we are used to. While the first AVENGERS films was the grand culmination of phase one, AGE OF ULTRON fe...

BATMAN ETERNAL Series (#1-52) Comic Book Review

NOTE: this review may contain some fairly big SPOILERS for the series. BATMAN ETERNAL is the latest DC Comics weekly series that started last April and just recently concluded.  It was hyped up to be a major story arc that wou...



EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Movie Review

NIGHTCRAWLER Movie Review

Ya know, I thought I loved Season One…but…but, it was as if Samuel Jackson broke into my apt., turned me upside down, paddled my ass stupid, and whispered in my ear,”hold on to your butt.” As we then mad...


TUSK Movie Review

 The filmography of Kevin Smith can be polarizing for some folks.  Either you think he is capable of overly romanticizing the mundane and unorthodox with hilarious tangent-filled dialogue or you think his body of work is a l...



TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (2014) Movie Review

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is stupid.  The franchise, since its inception in 1984, is based around a stupid premise: four pet shop turtles and a rat are mutated beneath the streets of New York City and are skilled in the dea...


Hidden Gems: TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES – THE ULTIMATE VISUAL HISTORY

How many times do I have to say it, people?  I am a diehard fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  It was the sci-fi/fantasy property that I immediately latched onto in childhood and, throughout the years, I have found tim...

SABOTAGE Movie Review

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from action crime-thrillers like SABOTAGE, it’s that fictional DEA agents are the most entertainingly psychotic pricks on the planet.  In the vein of Denzel Washington’...


JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR Movie Review

For those of you eagerly awaiting a live-action version of DC Comic’s premier team of superheroes, you may have to wait a bit longer.  With the recent announcement of the MAN OF STEEL sequel (tentatively titled BATMAN VS...
