Lego Batman: Must See

The breakout character from the hit Lego Movie stars in what will have to be the sequel until there is a second Lego Movie. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s completely the opposite, totally awesome. We get to see the Will Arnett … Continue reading

Hey Mr. J, I’m on some new shoes!

I always prefer the original character design by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. The sexualized one DC shifted to in 2011, video games and the horrendous Suicide Squad movie is just lame. I’m no prude, I just think it was a … Continue reading

RIP: Miguel Ferrer

Poor guy, knocked out by cancer at 61. Well he had quite a resume of his own and didn’t live in the shadow of his famous father Jose Ferrer. His big debut was the OCP executive who approved the Robocop … Continue reading

Batman v. Superman: Waste of time

But Steve, why did you go? Well, I still like Batman and I wanted to see if Ben Affleck would do alright. For me, it’s about time we got an American actor over an ill-tempered Brit to play my favorite … Continue reading
