Iron Man 3 (2013 film)
Jon Favreau’s first two Iron Man films were more or less mixed bags for me. While I thought the first movie lacked ambition and did not take any risks, the screenplay and the direction was steady …

Batman: Year One (2011 animated film)
Warner Brothers animation (under the DCU animated label) and Bruce Timm seems to be making a habit out of adapting several of DC Comics’ best story arcs. Directed by Sam Liu and Lauren Montgomery …

Cowboys & Aliens (2011 film)
An alien invasion happening during the late 1800’s when mankind had barely gotten in touch with their potentials for technology is an interesting premise. I mean it represented a classic “David …

Captain America: The First Avenger

X-Men: First Class
When I first heard of the coming “X-Men: First Class” film, I will have to admit that I feared for the worst. The first three movies of the X-Men franchise have been a mixed bag for me; while …
Action Comics 454: Superman's Energy Crisis
