Justice League Bombing and I'm not Surprised

I don’t know what DC is thinking. Releasing the Justice League movie right before a major holiday. I cannot imagine too many people decide to go see a movie the weekend before the largest travel week of the year. While I do find it mildly disappointing its doing so terrible in theaters, I also find it not terribly surprising. Justice League bombing has a few flaws with the movie, other than Ben Affleck, and I haven’t seen the movie yet. It’s Isn’t Just Ben Affleck It’s no secret that I am not a fan of Ben Affleck as Batman. I have made many DC comic [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad Directed by: David Ayer Starring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie My Rating:  It has been a while since my last movie review post.

Movie Review: Batman vs Superman

I did see Batman vs Superman. I have been talking smack about this movie since it came out and the reviews were so awful.

I’ve also been doing it because I knew I was going to see the movie. Typically I won’t be too quick to publicly judge a popular movie like this unless I intended to see it (after all, I did watch Titanic before I finally decided I didn’t like it). In the spirit of full disclosure, [… Click to Continue …]

Biggs' Cinema Scoop: First!

(New category of Biggs cortical cogitations – in these posts I am going to talk about some of the latest noteworthy minutiae in cinema. Movies are my second favorite pastime. I love the movie making process from acting to lighting, special effects, soundtrack and cinematography. If you like movies, I hope you find these tidbits interesting as well.) First! This is going to be the most difficult post I think because there is so much movie news I’ve been reading that I don’t know what I want to talk about. I know that if I try to cram it all into a post I will [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

[rating: 5] Starring: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman Synopsis: It has been 8 years since Batman took the blame for Harvey Dent’s evil indiscretions and in that time nobody has seen or heard from Batman or Bruce Wayne. Now a new evil emerges connected to Bruce Wayne’s past, Bane. Now Batman must learn to accept the past tragedies and save Gotham once again but he isn’t alone as some new allies come to his aid. Biggs’ Review:The previous Batman franchise began degrading after the second film, when Tim Burton was no longer involved with the movie and Michael Keaton was no longer Batman. This was [… Click to Continue …]
