[VIDEO] Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition Review

Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice was first released on March 19, 2016, directed by Zack Snyder, written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot and Jesse Eisenberg. The Ultimate Edition was released just a few weeks ago and added 30 more minutes to what was already a densely packed 2.5 hour slug fest which not only tried to tell the conflicted story of Superman duking it out with a Frank Miller-esque Batman, but also do the setup work for the rest of the DC Universe.

[VIDEO] Star Trek: Beyond – My Spoiler-Free Movie Review

Star Trek Beyond has just opened, directed by Justin Lin and starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg as well as a whole slew of other people.

[VIDEO] What Scientology Taught Me

You know, people think I always run down Scientology and say that I never got anything out of it. That’s just not true. I learned all kinds of things from my experience with L. Ron Hubbard and his amazing technology. In fact, I learned so much I thought I’d share some of those things with you today. Some of these may sound kind of cynical, but I don’t mean them to be. It’s just that some truths aren’t always fit for Hallmark cards. Continue reading

[VIDEO] Why Ghostbusters 2016 is Not That Good

Ghostbusters – a classic comedy for the ages, an iconic remembrance of some of the best the the 80s had to offer. For my generation, one of things we gaze back upon with fond memories of hilarity and joy. If someone is going to mess with our childhood, they better do it right.

[VIDEO] Why Battlefield Earth Sucks

“A disaster of epic proportions” – Ian Nathan, Empire

“A million monkeys with a million crayons would be hard-pressed in a million years to create anything as cretinous….” – Rita Kempley, The Washington Post

“Clumsy polot, misplaced satire, unbelievable coincidences and a leaden pace.” – Leonard Malton’s Movie Guide

“This is disjointed, tedious and every bit as bad as its reputation.” – David Blieiler, TLA Video & DVD Guide

“A cross between Star Wars and the smell of ass.” – Jon Steward, The Daily Show

Battlefield Earth. Probably the worst film ever made, at least in terms of films that actually took themselves seriously and were trying to be actual blockbuster hits. A film so bad the screenwriter actually issued a public apology for his work. Continue reading

[VIDEO] Perception is our Reality – How We Fool Ourselves

Perception is a tricky thing. It’s our conduit to the world and yet at the same, it can be one of our worst enemies. We see or hear things wrong all the time because our senses trick us. As a result, we can be absolutely sure, just totally certain that we are seeing or hearing something that doesn’t exist or missing what is right in front of our face. Continue reading

[VIDEO] The Legend of Tarzan is Pretty Good

My review of the newly released The Legend of Tarzan, a movie that is getting some poor reviews but is actually a pretty good representation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 1912 original work modernized for today and put into a real historical context. Starring Alexander Skarsgaard, Margot Robbie, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson.
