Live By Night (Blu-ray Review)

In terms of his directorial output, Ben Affleck has had a perfect track record with me.  Gone Baby Gone was one hell of a debut for him and surprisingly his least talked about film in his director catalog (It shouldn’t be, its fantastic).  That film was based on a novel by Dennis Lehane, which is […]

Well, not only do we get The Winter Soldier on September 9th, we also get its companion, Marvel’s television spin off Agents Of Shield.  The show had a lot of promise when it was announced, but boy, it got pretty terrible, a chore to watch and I just kept with it “because” (and my wife […]

‘Labor Day’ Is Not Much Of A Holiday Movie (Movie Review)

It seemed pretty telling of the quality to me that a film by acclaimed director Jason Reitman would be practically swept under the rug, given its low profile release at the end of January, but I had a desire to see it anyway.  I have been a fan of Reitman’s previous films (including Juno, Up […]

Get On That ‘To Do List’ (Movie Review)

I should start by saying I liked this movie.  The To Do List is a fun summer comedy that mixes absurd raunchiness and some sincere qualities in terms of what the journey means to the lead character, when all is said and done.  It also happens to be another coming-of-age film, which will be in […]

Comic-Con 2013: “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” World Premiere

Today I was lucky enough to get into this year’s hot ticket television panel – “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” where Marvel honcho and the show’s executive produce Jeph Loeb held court wearing a “Coulson Lives” t-shirt.  He then introduced the writer-producers Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeff Bell, and then the show’s stars Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson), […]

Writer/director Joss Whedon is in a pretty good place right now.  He is coming off making one of the biggest films ever (The Avengers), which had the bonus pleasure of being pretty universally well-liked, and has essentially elevated from being loved by geek audiences all over to being a filmmaker who has the ability to […]

WonderCon 2013: Much Ado About Nothing

Following The Avengers, many were curious what the next thing for writer, director, and all-around geek icon Joss Whedon would be.  Obviously taking on a modern day retelling of a famous Shakespeare play was the perfect project to take on.  Okay, so maybe a Joss Whedon adaptation of the popular comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, […]

It’s Hammer Time For The Mighty ‘Thor’

Summer, 2011, is an important time for Marvel Studios.  Both Thor and Captain America are going to hit theaters, and they have been designed to build into the Avengers movie that will be released in 2012.  A dense movie universe, with so much history and comic mythology behind it, has not been attempted before, so […]

Favreau Turns Iron Man 2 Into Gold

In 2008, Iron Man was released to an audience that wasn’t very familiar with the character and with a lead actor that had a history of personal demons that never allowed him to achieve the success his talent deserved.  It turned out to be an explosive combination that raked in over $535 million worldwide.  By […]
