The Ending We Deserved: The Dark Knight Rises Review (Spoilers!)

In many ways I’m still trying to process how I feel about The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR, for the purposes of saving time). I’m not normally the type of person that gets sentimental or overly emotional about movies (unless anger counts – righteous, righteous anger!), but after leaving the theater, [...]

The Spider Returns: The Amazing Spider-Man Reviewed

Like every superhero story even victories come with unforseen consequences. For every time The Joker is thrown back into Arkham Asylum, another supervillain rears his ugly, psychotic head. Whenever the X-Men get a little respect from the outside world, Magneto shows up to tarnish that goodwill. [...]

The Odds Are Favorable: The Hunger Games Review

Young Adult fiction (or YA for short in case you’re tweeting or texting). Whether you love it, hate it, or loathe it, there’s no getting around the fact that it is the driving force behind a great many movies and CW shows. Why? Because tweens and teens are a consuming, tweeting, facebooking glob of [...]

Mystery with No Explanation: A Review of J. Edgar

On paper, this movie looked like it should have been amazing. With Clint Eastwood directing and Leonardo DiCaprio starring, I had very high expectations. The subject matter itself suggested that it should have been an amazing movie. J. Edgar Hoover, one of the most interesting people of the [...]

La Femme Critique: Womanthology

Quick, think of a female superhero or villain! What does she look like? Tall? Blonde or brunette? Probably a redhead. Is she scantily clad? Does she have large breasts? What era is she from (Golden/Silver Age? New 52? Any one of the Marvel Universes?) Well good for you, you at least have an image [...]

Avenge Me!: A Captain America Review

Ah, the 1940s…a simpler time when a gallon of gas was 11 cents, the moon was still a distant, unknown world made of green cheese, and Nazis were so damn easy to kill! And even 70 years later, we can’t get enough Nazi killing, so if someone were to ask for a bare-bones mathematical equation for why [...]

Critics, thus far, have been fairly positive on the movie, and I tried very hard to go into the movie with an open mind and not carry with me the cynicism developed from four preceding movies. But I came out of the movie incapable of mustering anything more [...]
