    It’s no secret that a ‘Highlander‘ reboot has been in the works for several years now. Despite the length of time the project has spent in development, the flow of news could best be described as a drip feed, with the most recent development being November’s announcement that ‘John Wick’ co-director Chad Stahelski would be […]

    As we enter 2017, DC Entertainment is keen to get the hype machine fired up for ‘Justice League‘. There is, after all, a lot riding on this film, even more so in the wake of the decidedly mixed audience responses to both ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ and ‘Suicide Squad‘. The studio’s latest effort […]

    Continuity. For comic fans, it has been both a blessing and a curse since time immemorial. And if there is one way above all others that the ‘X-Men’ films have come to reflect their source material, it’s their convoluted, at times contradictory or impenetrable continuity. And a new wrinkle was added to that continuity this […]

      There are still two months to go before ‘Iron Fist‘ makes its debut on Netflix.

Mirroring (albeit it in a more down to earth […]

  • Bruce Wayne’s Cousin Is ‘Powerless’

    Perhaps the most persistent of the many criticisms that have dogged DC’s attempts to compete with Marvel at the box office have been those relating to the grim, often humorless tone of the films. Though last summer’s ‘Suicide Squad‘ bucked that trend – so aggressively that some critics described it as overcompensation – it remains […]

    Remember when Netflix first ventured into the realm of original content? At the time, we could expect ‘House of Cards’ in the winter, ‘Orange is the New Black’ in the summer, and ‘Hemlock Grove’ whenever we actually remembered to watch it. Since then, the monolithic streaming provider’s lineup of original productions has grown to the […]

    In the wake of last summer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, which concluded a trilogy that began in 2011 with ‘X-Men: First Class’, the franchise is shifting its focus from the so-called core films to a slate of spinoffs and side projects. The slate of upcoming X-films currently includes ‘Logan‘, ‘Deadpool 2‘, and ‘The New Mutants‘, all of […]

      It might be an understatement to say that Netflix gets a lot of attention for their original content. Though most of that attention has fallen on their TV series, the streaming powerhouse has also ventured into feature film production. To some extent, that imbalanced focus is a result of the sheer quantity of TV […]

    Yep. I got bit by the ‘TNG ‘ bug last time, so we’re back for another round. This time, we’ll be taking a look at the third season episode ‘The Defector’. Last time I talked a bit about the third season and how it was the year the show finally “got good”. In that column, […]

    Several months ago we learned that ‘Rogue One’, the latest entry in Disney and Lucasfilm’s ongoing box office revival of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, had undergone a number of reshoots after the end of principal photography. While this wasn’t bad news in and of itself, it nonetheless generated a degree of concern ahead of the […]

    As Netflix prepares to make its latest venture into the realm of original content with the debut of ‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events’, fans surely find themselves wonder whether the streaming giant can maintain the seemingly impossible standard of quality it has set for itself.

    Until recently, it was something of an informal tradition for ‘Star Wars’ movies to be released in May. This was the case throughout George Lucas’s stewardship of the franchise, with the sole exception being the animated ‘Clone Wars’ feature (which was released in August 2008). That all changed in 2015 when ‘The Force Awakens’, the […]
