Guardians of the Galaxy; The “I Am Groot” Review

Guardians of the Galaxy was by far Marvel Studios riskiest venture yet.  It was always a 50/50 proposition that Iron Man would work, probably 40/60 that Thor would take off and maybe 35/65 that Captain America would be anything less than corny.  However, Guardians of the Galaxy was easily 20/80 that it would be anything more than silly and Marvel Studios first cinematic failure – … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy; The “I Am Groot” Review

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: The Have Opposable Thumbs, Will Travel Review

War has descended upon the apes. Wars start for reasons large and small:   For a perceived personal slight.  Assassinations or assassination attempts.  For God, Glory and Gold.  Over a woman.  For love.  For power and greed. Dawn of the Plant of the Apes explores many of these concepts in a surprisingly Shakespearean manner.  What I truly loved about this movie was the “heart” of it.  … Continue reading Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: The Have Opposable Thumbs, Will Travel Review

Transformers: Age of Extinction – It was pretty to watch MINI-review (SPOILERS)

If you haven’t seen the movie by now, you probably won’t.  So there will be some spoilers for those that want to read some.  I’m also not going to get too deep in my review because this movie truly doesn’t deserve it.       With that said – I had fun.  Listen, when you walk into a Michael Bay movie, you should know by now … Continue reading Transformers: Age of Extinction – It was pretty to watch MINI-review (SPOILERS)

A Bunch of TV/Movie Reviews – I’ve been busy

The Machine (2013) New vs. Old.  The Neanderthal vs. Homo sapiens.  Man vs. Machine.  A fight as old as time itself.  The new replaces the old and the cycle continues.  Evolution dominates the genetic dead ends and becomes the dominant species.  Vincent (Toby Stephens) creates Ava (Caity Lotz – Black Canary in the Arrow series) in the attempt to produce technology to help those suffering from … Continue reading A Bunch of TV/Movie Reviews – I’ve been busy

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Back To The Future’s Red-Headed Step Cousin Critique

Or as I like to call it, Wolverine 3:  Groovin’ with the 70’s. It was hard for me to write something about this movie because I’m conflicted.  Well, not conflicted so much as I didn’t want to come off as though I’m ranting without just cause.  It’s no secret that I’m no fan of Singer’s “X-Men” movies.  In short, they’re weak and not X-Men movies, … Continue reading X-Men: Days of Future Past – Back To The Future’s Red-Headed Step Cousin Critique

Batman & Son – DC Animated Movie Review

    I’m not sure if this a New DCU 52-based movie like Justice League:  War or if this is a stand-alone movie like The Justice League:  The Flashpoint Paradox?  Either way, this is a really good introduction to what I consider a pretty damn good character, Damian Wayne.  In the comics, his origin has been tweaked a few times, but in general – he’s … Continue reading Batman & Son – DC Animated Movie Review

GODZILLA – The Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism (MUTO) Review

  When I was a wee lad, I used to get up on Saturday morning and begin my day watching Saturday morning cartoons (RIP) from 5:30a until 11a when they ended.  Afterwards, I’d spend another two hours watching Kung Fu Theater (RIP) and then head on outside to play.  One day, instead of going outside to play, I stayed back and watched a movie my mom seemed … Continue reading GODZILLA – The Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism (MUTO) Review
