While 1996 was a solid year of film – none of the below movies would be on my all time favourites list. Jerry Maguire might make it on if I was thinking of favourite writer/directors (in this case Cameron Crowe). 96′ was also the summer where I went to the movie theatre every week with […]


This was one of the hardest years to rank. It was a weak year for franchise pictures – most notably the Star Trek sequel seemed to destroy any good will I had for it after the hughly enjoyable reboot. Into Darkness disappointingly seemed to break the greater Star Trek universe while pathetically recycling story and […]


As far back as I can remember; television and movies have been a huge part of my life. From circling all the movies I wanted to see in the TV guide at Christmas time through the early days of VHS, the explosion of DVD, the war of HD-DVD and Blu-ray and a lifetime of going […]


This is genius: There has been very little merchandise for this latest X-Men film but Carl’s Jr. seems to be at the forefront with branded cups etc. Check out Carl’s Jr. for more info.

Why is he wearing the Super-Hero equivalent of a cardigan (two sizes too big for him)? Why is Kitty not more slutty? Who is the dude with the curly hair? (I know… I know… it’s Sunspot… did […]


That’s right – we had to wait until the 24th of 25 covers to find out we would get a Colossus. And it was a little underwelming… bad pose, big head, tiny body… but it is our first look at a “hulked out” Colossus. Looks slightly better than X3… but not by much. See the […]


Consider my vote officially cast. I want Jaimie Alexander to be cast as Wonder Woman. And while I wish the world was different – though not that I have any objection to gorgeous woman flaunting their bodies – her star power has been raised a few notches on the totem pole of Hollywood celebrity by […]
