First Lady of Arkansas. First Lady of the United States. Junior Senator of New York. Sixty-seventh Secretary of State. Hillary Rodham Clinton is a trailblazer.

On The Breakfast Club

On The Breakfast Club

After watching the travesty of Sixteen Candles, I watched The Breakfast Club, also directed by John Hughes, which both feature Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall. Although this was not as bad, it was still terrible. Maybe worse is that I have had people suggest this garbage to me – dozens and dozens of times … Continue reading

On The Amazing Spider-Man

Following the Raimi Spider-Man film series, a new series was created, The Amazing Spider-Man, featuring the attractive Andrew Garfield: One of the complaints I have about this film series is that the main characters, notably Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, look like models, whereas the versions from the previous film series, Peter Parker and May Jane … Continue reading

On Man of Steel

On Man of Steel

Man of Steel is just not a good film. Certainly, I enjoyed Smallville even when the stories depicted were far away from the comic origins (i.e. Chloe Sullivan). This film, on the other hand, seems to be quite “grim…somber” compared to even Smallville standards (Season 10 had the darkest mood of all), along with notable … Continue reading

On RoboCop 2

Following RoboCop is RoboCop 2, featuring Peter Weller (Odyssey 5), and John Glover (Scrooged, Batman & Robin, Smallville), the film is just OK, not great. It’s like The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter compared to the original. According to Birth Movies Death article, “The Strange Case Of RoboCop 2“: The original RoboCop stands alongside Casablanca, The Long Goodbye, … Continue reading
