Featruing Gary Oldman (The Fifth Element, Nolan Batman film series), William Hurt ( Captain America: Civil War), and written and produced by Akiva Goldsman (Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Constantine, The Da Vinci Code, I Am Legend, Jonah Hex, Fringe), Lost in Space is a dim-witted, poorly done, film remake of the 1965–1968 CBS television series … Continue reading

The Best and Worst of Sherlock: Series 4

Sherlock, based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories, is what one would consider a modern revamp of the classic tales. Created by Doctor Who‘s Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Homes, and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson.

On The Wolverine

On The Wolverine

Continuing after X-Men: The Last Stand, The Wolverine follows Wolverine as he heads into Japan. The mid-credits scene leads into X-Men: Days of Future Past. Femke Janssen, who would play Jean Grey here one last time, as a vision to Logan, has said that the recasting that occurred for X-Men: Apocalypse is sexist. According to the … Continue reading

On Resident Evil: Retribution

On Resident Evil: Retribution

Continuing from Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Resident Evil: Extinction, Resident Evil: Afterlife is Resident Evil: Retribution. Certainly quite ridiculous (since Extinction the film series has basically been as such), this film actually ties quite a lot to the roots of it’s beginnings not seen in Extinction or Afterlife, without ignoring the ridiculous elements entirely; … Continue reading

The Best and Worst of Constantine

The Best and Worst of Constantine

Unlike the Constantine film, the television series I thought was utterly fantastic in comparison – there was much more time to develop characters. Not to say everything was inherently good, though. Constantine suffers heavily of the Magical Negroe trope (see The Legend of Bagger Vance) in two characters, Papa Midnite and the Angel, Manny. This … Continue reading
