GUEST POST: Are There Any Good Video Game Movies Out There?

By: Caroline Video game movies have been around since the 90s (longer than superhero films) and it doesn’t seem like Hollywood has any plans to stop creating them. Warcraft and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie are just two examples of this trend. The choice to adapt a game into a movie might seem like an obvious moneymaker. After all, today video games make more money […]

We all Love the MCU, but DC is Crushing Marvel in One Key Category: Representation

Comic books and their cinematic counterparts make up a significant portion of our entertainment consumption here at DLD. We’ve covered the Marvel Cinematic Universe extensively in Anthony’s “State of the MCU” series (part 1, part 2), we’ve examined DC’s biggest blockbuster to date in our Batman v Superman review, and we’ve even touched on the Fox end of the superhero spectrum in our review of […]

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

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. Even though DLD may seem dormant more often than an active volcano of content, we’ve been having a blast and will continue doing this just for the hell of it. So what’s been happening in the last 9 months that’s robbed the good […]

Examining the Future of James Bond

Examining the Future of James Bond

A new James Bond is on the horizon. Having portrayed the iconic superspy since 2006’s Casino Royale, Daniel Craig is finally stepping away from the role. During the press tour for last year’s Bond film, Spectre, Craig repeatedly made his intentions to vacate the role clear, saying things like “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” and “if I did another Bond movie, it […]

What to do with Seemingly Unnecessary Sequels

What to do with Seemingly Unnecessary Sequels

Often times the worst part of a movie is the ending. Not because of the way in which the film comes to an end, but because the film comes to an end at all. We watch movies because we love to become engrossed in an entirely new world. We love to explore new universes with characters that we care about. And when a movie ends, […]

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. The final result is […]

It’s very possible that you have yet to hear of Jeff Nichols. If that is the case, you should probably start getting acquainted with his work. Nichols is going to be a name to know very soon.

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

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

It seems like the massive Sony email hack is the Christmas gift that just keeps on giving. 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 […]

Film Review: ‘Deadpool’

Film Review: ‘Deadpool’

DEADPOOL REVIEW: MAXIMUM EFFORT by Anthony Lopez Are you tired of seeing superhero movies that all seem so damn similar to each other? Were Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man breaths of fresh air in a set of lungs long polluted by standardly overwrought superhero films? Do you enjoy a healthy dose of swearing in your life? Would you enjoy what Alex DeLarge referred to as, “the […]
