Batman and Harley Quinn review

Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to be at San Diego Comic Con and caught the premiere of Batman and Harley Quinn.I have to admit the reaction by the audience was a whole lot of laughter. Bruce Timm did it again with another solid animated film. Seriously, somebody get him involved the in the live action movies. That said let’s take a look and what grows on us in this movie.

A Fun Mess: A Suicide Squad Review

Well to get to the point, no matter what the critics are saying about this film DC is definitely heading in the right direction. For one thing this movie got me into a theatre instead of relegating it to ‘I’ll catch it on demand’ like I did for “Man of Steel” and “BvS”. Secondly, when I was done watching the movie I wasn’t thinking ‘What the hell did I just watch?’. Rather it felt like I’d go see it again. A lot of my positive reaction  had to do with the tone and the characters. Gone were the brooding, heartless monsters (except for Amanda Waller, but then that’s the point of her character) and instead we got people with weird powers in weird situations. In all was a fun summer popcorn film so if you’re looking for that definitely give it a watch. For the spoiler part of this review keep on reading.

Who You Gonna Call?

gbintlpstrLet’s face Ghostbusters is more than an just another 80’s movie to a lot of us. Much in the same way Transformers and G.I. Joe were not just cartoons. They had meaning and helped shape us in many ways. Naturally, when we hear a beloved franchise being rebooted, we grow concerned.

Not because stars were all female but because I wanted to see Ghostbusters anew with the feel and love that the original had. I reserved judgment until I saw it over the weekend. Keep reading for my take on this reboot. Continue reading

Damaged Ink: Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Unless you’ve been actively avoiding the Internet over the weekend then you’re very aware of the photo David Ayers posted of Jared Leto as a rather alternative looking Joker.  Soon the Internet was a blaze!  But much of it was the photo being negatively received with shouts of how Hot Topic and Marilyn Mason the actor/singer like along with pointed pitchforks claiming that he had ruined the character.

If you were amongst the mob…. well jokes on you!

Movie Review: TMNT

TMNT

I finally had time over the weekend to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles directed by Michael Bay. Before I get to the review of this film, I remember about a year ago when Michael Bay was trolling every hardcore TMNT fan on the internet by saying his version of the turtles would be aliens from outer space! I could not help but laugh very hard at this “rumor” that came out and the response from the fans was hilarious at best!
