Captain America: Civil War is packed with familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but there are also a few new characters showing up. One of these is T’Challa, the king of Wakanda, better known as Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman. While Marvel is keeping mum on what he’s up to in the threequel, concept art of T’Challa’s costume was shown last year during the Phase Three film slate announcement, and it’s faithful to his comic book duds. Now new information reveals what the costume may be lined with, and it’s going to spell trouble for Captain America. (more…)

Howdy people of the north, south, east and west, and welcome to Day #1 of Month of Superhero Film Reviews 2! For those of you who have followed this blog for a while you may remember that back in 2013 I did my first Month of Superhero Film Reviews which was hella fun and interesting to discuss the adaptations of some of my favourite and most hated films in the superhero genre. This month we’re doing it again with a new batch of good, bad and indifferent films that will hopefully bring on some interesting discussions! Anyways today I’ll be starting with a classic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you know the good one from 1990. (more…)

San Andreas

San Andreas is a catastrophe. It is a lamentable skill when a disaster film, a piece of entertainment that is routinely met with the lowest of expectations, fails to even meet the basic requirements of simply being “dumb summer entertainment”. This is a genre in which universally panned movies like Dante’s Peak, Poseidon or 2012 can still manage to earn big bucks at the box office. However the popular opinion of which inevitably deteriorates over time in the mind of the American public. Oh there are high minded exceptions. The Birds, The Towering Inferno, Titanic, Contagion. But what makes those productions great is the blending of mass destruction with characters that captivate our attention. (more…)

Dave’s 3-Word Review:
OMG, just stop!

I like to see myself as a musical-appreciator. I do. I’ve seen a good fair share of musicals that I have enjoyed…more so than not. However, there is a guy in the musical industry that I just can’t stand, and his name is Stephen Sondheim. For instance, I hate Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street mostly for the songs that aren’t catchy, but instead repetitive and annoying.Into the Woods, on the other hand, takes all that and kind of brings it one step further by having a workable storyline and then completely destroying it halfway in. It’s hard to explain, so let’s first start with plot.

Alright, so this is the land of fairytales intertwined…sort of like in Shrek or more so like TV’s Once Upon a Time – and of course, it is filled with music. Now, the…

Kingsman

Dave’s 3-Word Review:
Not PODUS’s Men.

I love spy movies and I always have. Back in the day, that’s where it was at. Where you have a number of unrealistic things transpiring, but no one really cares because it’s just a lot of fun, introduces a number of lovable characters, along with a love-to-hate villain with truly evil intentions – but at the same time, you like originality. You crave it. Which is why movies like that are only good for nostalgia purposes…until now. Kingsman: The Secret Service pays tribute to some of the spy movie greats of film’s past, but it also introduces it’s own spin on things – making it…quite the spectacle.

Meet Eggsy, an English punk that is always getting in trouble – you can tell by his punk-y hat and oversized jacket. Troublemakers like Eggsy don’t get a pass in life, or do they? You see…
