Modern DC Films – Thoughts on Suicide Squad, The Killing Joke, Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition, Assault on Arkham

Yeah, everyone knows that when it comes to films of comics Marvel has had more than just a little bit of an upperhand in recent years. Though it’s interesting to think that 2005’s Batman Begins ushered in perhaps a “new era” of superhero film. It’s also interesting to note that the oft though pinnacle of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight, released in 2008, the same year Iron Man also kicked off the now mega successful Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Martian Review

I don’t really like films about space very much. Space, like the sea (a comparison which is also made in this film), is pretty scary.

Sleepover (2004) Review – Police Approved

Sleepover is a bizarre movie. Even taking into account that it’s a teen chick flick type of movie it’s just straight up one of the weirdest I’ve seen. And this one even had a theatrical release! The movie stars Alexa Vega (later one of the leads in Spy Kids) as Julie Corky, a Middle School¬†grade student. It’s the last day of school and her best friend Hannah is going to be moving away and so won’t be attending the same […]
