Critically critiquing the critics

Since the reviews have been coming out for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I have seen people fall very hard on both sides of how the critics have perceived the film. Is a critic “right” or “wrong?” That’s like asking if a cup of coffee is strong enough. Depends on how you like it. Lest we forget, everyone, be they critic or moviegoer, fan or hater, is entitled to their opinion. But a professional critic employed by a major...

J.K. Simmons Is the New Commissioner Gordon

As the world prepares for just exactly what Batman Versus Superman: Dawn of Justice is going to be like, the DC Comics movie universe is still plugging along with director Zack Snyder at the helm.

Batman Versus Superman: Dawn of Justice (Trailer 2)

As we talked about earlier this week, a new trailer for Batman –VS- Superman: Dawn of Justice was coming this week and right on time, it plopped Wednesday night. And the Internet comic book kingdom collapsed upon itself in a massive freak-out of negativity. I’m typically not the kind of person who either looks at other “critics” opinions before voicing my own nor am I a writer who gets caught up in Internet Bandwagon Bashing. That...
