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 …

The Punisher
It confuses me at how this film did so poorly when compared to other comic book flicks. It has plenty of great action for the action buffs, the story is excellent, even though many claim that it veers …

The Punisher
Not being reader of comic books and not having noticed that this film was base on a Marvel Comic hero, I watched this movie as though it were another Action/Special Effects/Fire and Explosions escape …

Hellboy Special Edition DVD
I've never read the "Hellboy" comics. I have nothing to base a comparison on as such, so I'll review this movie as a person who just happened to pick this one up not knowing what to …

reviewed Batman Forever (film). April 08, 2004
posted in Movie Hype
Batman Forever
"Batman Forever" isn't a top-tier comic-to-screen flick. What it is, however, is the best of the three subpar sequels of the "Batman" franchise so far. It's nowhere near as dark or moody as the first …

Batman Returns
"Batman Returns" has plenty of atmosphere about it. There's no denying that. However, this sequel pales in comparison to its predecessor. The scenery is dark and moody, but the character of the "Penguin" …

Batman (1989 film)
"Batman" set the standard for all comic-to-screen heroes that came after it. It's a good movie that shows you just how twisted and complex "Batman" really is. He's not played out as some good guy without …

DVD front
"Blade II" is unique. Consider first that it is based on an underappreciated and, up until the first movie, relatively unknown superhero outside of comic book stores. Then consider that it's a sequel. …

Hellboy Special Edition DVD
Pros: Nothing     Cons: Bad FX, boring, terrible pacing and lame jokes and action.     The Bottom Line: A very underwhelming and bland experience, do not waste …

Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
This well-cast movie packs a lot of story into one film. I remember growing up that Daredevil was always different than other comics after all what other hero was sightless? Also, the artwork of Gene …
reviewed Watchmen (graphic novel). January 28, 2004
Most simply stated, WATCHMEN was the graphic novel that totally changed the comic book industry. The book is a deconstruction of comics. The book also forces a person to challenge the way they view life …

Road to Perdition
Before seeing this film for the first time, I already knew that Tom Hanks plays a hit man for the mob. Tom Hanks? As I then viewed the film, I assumed that Hanks accepted the role because he liked the …

BLADE II is a far superior film from BLADE in just about every element: the acting, directing, writing, effects, music, lighting, sound, plot, believability are all better in this sequel than the original. …

Road to Perdition
For some reason I was really looking forward to "Road to Perdition." Perhaps it was because I liked Sam Mendes' first film, "American Beauty," so much. Or maybe it was the fact that Thomas Newman, one …

I've never read any of the "Blade" comics, so I'm reviewing this film with absolutely nothing in print to compare it to. This is a solid action film that raises the bar for other comic hero movies. Snipes …

Daredevil (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition) (2003)
"Daredevil" has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters. It truly was a surprise to me when I first learned that a film was actually going to be made about him. He teamed up with Lou Ferrigno's …
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume One
