reviewed Wanted. August 02, 2005
Wanted
Rarely does a graphic novel come along that is original, witty, and hard hitting. Watchmen, the first Preacher graphic, Dark Knight.... All of them were no only great literary works -they were new. Joining …
reviewed Constantine. July 23, 2005
Constantine
The trailer for CONSTANTINE made it looking vaguely intriguing: majestic wingspan lifting above Gabriel's head, murky derring-do in the streets of Los Angeles, the presence of Tilda Swinton (always involved …
reviewed Constantine. July 21, 2005
Constantine
While I wouldn't use "Constantine" as a source for any studies on Catholicism(or Christianity as a whole), I will admit that it is a decent flick to watch when there's a little time to kill. I'm not familiar …
reviewed Fantastic Four (movie). July 07, 2005
Fantastic Four

reviewed Batman Begins. June 21, 2005
Deluxe Edition DVD cover
Pros: Nicely done script; stellar action (well almost); great special effects.      Cons: Ms. Holmes was out of her element; the Bat Mobile lacked grace and style.     …

reviewed Blade: Trinity. June 07, 2005
Blade: Trinity

reviewed Batman: Gothic. June 05, 2005
Batman: Gothic
Though Grant Morrison is best known for his wonderful multi year rampage on New X-Men, or the dark masterwork Arkham Asylum, Gothic is a match for either one of these. With gritty, haunting art by Klaus …
reviewed Batman: Shaman. June 03, 2005
Batman: Shaman
This story begins just a few weeks before Miller's Batman: Year One. The two stories begin as a linked entity, the split into separate directions.     As a young Bruce Wayne that is …

Constantine
Pros: The most unusual 'quit smoking' regimen I've seen anyone use!      Cons: Drags a bit, potential to be overwhelmingly broody, and a bit choppy in places.   …
reviewed Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. May 11, 2005
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
Raised on the original comic books where the superheroes are noble and the public adores them, this book is quite a contrast. In this book the world has degenerated into a police state, where information …
reviewed Batman: Year One (graphic novel). May 10, 2005
Batman: Year One, Part One
When this miniseries first came out back in the eighties it left everyone breathless. David Mazzucchelli's art is some of the finest I've ever seen. It moves like a motion picture yet every still is ready …

Blade: Trinity
BLADE-TRINITY is a fantastical ride of a movie that even those of us fatigued by the larger-than-life comic book hero flicks literally poured out weekly onto the hungry theater big screens can tolerate. …
The Hard Goodbye (Sin City, Book 1: Second
With that opening line, I was drawn into the damn finest comic book I've read yet. I saw the trailer for "Sin City" and thought it looked very cool. I've never been into comic books, really, but I decided …
reviewed Sin City (2005 film). April 10, 2005
Sin City
Pros: One of kind special effects that hold true to the comic graphics; performances.     Cons: The relentless violence makes this movie seriously unsuitable for children.     …
reviewed Sin City (2005 film). March 31, 2005

reviewed Sin City. January 09, 2005
Sin City
What can I say that hasn't already been said. Yes, it is violent and yes, Marv, the main character probably isn't your friendly everyday neighbor. But who cares? This is a comic book. It has a truely …

Hellboy Special Edition DVD
The theatrical cut was good, four stars. But now, thanks to the added minutes, the story and the characters get the time to develop the way they should have. The love story between Liz and Hellboy finally …

Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
I really didn't think I was going to like DAREDEVIL all that much. I'm not a fan of Ben Affleck and when I heard he had been cast as the vengeful Matthew Murdock, I thought "Well, the movie …
