DLD Update and Why We’re Still Crying Joyous Tears Because of Star Wars

We’ve been sporadically doing this whole DLD thing for 9 months now. That’s right, long enough to carry a human baby to term.

Film Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Film Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a lot of pressure on its broad shoulders. It needed to be many things at once: a strong sequel that builds off Man of Steel, a new take on a recently celebrated Batman, a springboard for the impending DC Extended Universe, and a worthy homage to its original source material, Frank Miller’s incredible The Dark Knight Returns.

21 Jump Street/Men In Black Crossover Is Crazy, But Is It Crazy Enough?

On March 4, Variety reported that Sony is working on making the 21 Jump Street and Men In Black franchises into a crossover movie series, because that’s exactly what audiences have been craving. Considering big blockbusters rarely take big risks, it seems odd that Sony would green-light a project as untested and […]

The State of the MCU, Part I

Part I: Establishing the Marvel Cinematic Universe It’s been seven years since Nick Fury stood in the shadowed hallway of Tony Stark’s lavish Malibu mansion and proposed the idea of The Avengers Initiative in the post-credit scene of 2008’s Iron Man. Not only did this introduce the now ubiquitous Marvel post-credit scenes, it blew open the doors for a much bigger, shared comic universe. Since […]
