Man of Steel (2013 film)
Let me first say that I've always believed that Superman as a whole is somewhat dull. Supes is bogged down by the fact that he ignited the Golden Age of Comics. He's an almighty being with few, …

Those of you who remember Christopher Reeve's "campy" Superman films of the 1970's can forget anything you saw in those films.  There is nothing "campy" in this film and …

   Think what you will, but I’ve always argued that it’s the bad guys who get all of the fun.  Why, isn’t it the bad guys who get to have flexible morality, so much so …

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns- Part Two
Frank Miller’s critically acclaimed mini-series/graphic novel “The Dark Knight Returns” had arguably re-defined the Batman mythos. It was such a monumental undertaking that for its storyline …

Justice League: Doom
I don't want my opinion to have too much weight on this matter as I'm no expert on these action-packed direct to DVD animated films. During the Christmas season, me and my folks were exposed to …
