    It’s always fun to hear how some of your favorite movies came to be. Kevin Smith used his experience at a convenience store to make ‘Clerks,’ Cameron Crowe modeled ‘Almost Famous’ after his stint as a teenage reporter for ‘Rolling Stone,’ and apparently Zack Snyder first conceived the showdown between the Man of Steel and […]

    Ryan Reynolds playing Deadpool in his own movie is enough to get any True Believer to the theater. However, it wouldn’t be much of a movie if the Merc With A Mouth goofed off in front of a camera for 90 minutes. Sure, it would probably be hilarious, but it still wouldn’t be much of […]

    Judging by the other reviews out there, I liked ‘Terminator Genisys’ a lot more than most. However, there were definitely a few things that could have been improved upon. For instance, a few outstanding cast members weren’t as prominently featured as I would have liked. Matt Smith is definitely among them, although it’s understandable why […]

  • Movie Review: ‘Terminator Genisys’

    If there were one phrase that I would use to describe my attitude towards movies this summer, it would be “cautiously optimistic.” After all, some of the biggest films to hit theaters this season include a number of sequel/reboots of long-running franchises that haven’t exactly given their fans a ton of reasons to be confident.

    When ‘Lost’ and ‘The Hobbit’ star Evangeline Lilly was cast in ‘Ant-Man’, many True Believers speculated whether she would be Janet Van Dyne AKA the hero known as the Wasp after the character failed to appear alongside Hank Pym in ‘The Avengers’ as they did in the comics. However, the actress ended up playing Hope […]

    Unfortunately, Marvel Studios has opted to skip San Diego Comic-Con this year. They usually bring their big guns from the big screen to Hall H for some mind-blowing revelations, but the House of Ideas will only be represented by their TV shows such as ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘Agent Carter’ in the hallowed halls of […]

    Though the state of the Marvel Universe after ‘Secret Wars’ was largely unclear until recently, one thing that we knew for sure was that acclaimed comic book veteran Mark Waid would probably helm the flagship Avengers title when all was said and done. We saw a preview of his take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes during […]
