  • Ranking the X-Men Movies
    Superhero ensemble films owe a huge debt to the X-Men franchise. Without the thoughtful world-building, frequent levity, and sparkling dialog characterizing the best of the X-Men films, we’d have no Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • 5 Older Movies We’d Love Remakes Of (And 5 That Are Perfect)
    It is a truth universally acknowledged: a single movie in possession of a large following must be in want of a remake. At least, that’s how Hollywood executives seem to see things! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the real truth is that remakes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. And that’s even ...

  • Indiana Jones 5 Film Delayed (again) Until July 2022
    Harrison Ford is going to have a hard time being believable in adventure films if Indiana Jones 5 is put off much longer, but it’s exactly what he — and us — are facing. Now we won’t get to see our favorite globe-trotting, death-defying archaeologist in action again until July ...

  • How I Came To Love Guardians Of The Galaxy
    There are certain films that hook you from the very first time you see the poster, let alone the trailer, and there are those that you really struggle to see why they bothered. For me that spectrum ran from “Leon” (BIG fan of Luc Besson) down to “Dangerous Liaisons,” which ...
  • Comic Con 2020 is Cancelled
    For the first time in 51 years, world premier event San Diego Comic Con is cancelled, due to the Viral Apocalypse. Last year I attended the 50th anniversary of the SD Comic Con, and things were in high swing. Just like it was when I attended the year before, and the ...
