    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 […]

    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.

    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 […]
