The Killing Joke Takes Aim, But Misses

The Killing Joke Takes Aim, But Misses

One thing that fans of superheroes can probably all agree on is that, more often than not, the animated films featuring DC heroes and villains are superior to the ones that have Marvel superheroes in them. Is that because Marvel has spent its creativity points in the live-action realm? Is it because DC cranked out […]

Oliver Twist 1982 (George C. Scott and Tim Curry) | A Forgotten Classic

There have been nearly a dozen major film adaptations of the Dickens classic Oliver Twist, produced as recently as 2007 and as far back as 1922.

Les Miserables | In Defense of Russell Crowe as Javert

The major motion picture adaptation of Les Miserables was well received…mostly. Fans and critics alike raved about Hugh Jackman’s show-stopping portrayal of Jean Valjean and Anne Hathaway’s heartbreaking (and not to mention Oscar-winning) performance as Fantine. From the sets to the orchestrations, just about every aspect of the film has been heralded as a shining […]

Do We Really Need Another Blair Witch?

Well, if you follow the Trending Topics on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve probably heard the news: We’re being graced with yet another fucking Blair Witch movie. Super.

The Conjuring – What’s the Real Story?

I recently read a fascinating book: The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed & Lorraine Warren, by Gerald Brittle. This book was originally published in 1980 but was resurrected in 2013 to capitalize on the success of The Conjuring. I read it for the same reasons that a lot of people have read it over the past couple of years: […]

Ghostbusters 2016 – 3 Reasons Why the Trailers Failed

Well, it’s almost midnight on a Thursday, and I have just returned home after seeing the highly anticipated–and somewhat dreaded–Ghostbusters reboot. I have to wake up early for work, but I don’t care. I was determined to see this film on opening night, and I’m glad that I did. Like many people, I felt apprehensive after […]
