Scene Is Believing: Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice

“Ahoy, ahoy!” or “Ahoj, Ahoj!” as Lex Luthor, a son of East German , Czech -bordering parents possibly hailed Senators Finch and Barrows early on in Batman v Superman Dawn Of Justice. I thought I’d share some interesting insight into the film from blogger Samuel Otten. Samuel’s blog, Comic And Screen focuses on comic book reviews and […]

Guilty Pleasures: Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Overstuffed, psychotic, polarising and brutal. A slap in the face to Superman’s Golden Age goodness, and Gotham’s gun-less Batman. A gussied –up series of trailers within trailers for DC Movies main event. All these criticisms have been laid at the door of Warner Bros and DC, like a beaten, Batarang -branded villain.

No such doubts cloud General Zod’s (Michael Shannon) thinking. Krypton’s fiercest warrior and proud proponent of her ancient ways is a genetically programmed Son Of Steel; he and his […]

Imagine you have five complicated jigsaw puzzles and then threw them on the floor. Then instead of reassembling them or attempting to decipher the pieces into any sense of order, you instead decide to mash all five of them together while wielding a hammer to ensure that even the fat pieces that don’t go with […]

Entitled: Watchmen

The opening titles of Watchmen, set to Bob Dylan’s The Times They Are A-Changin’, serve as both prologue, and multiple meta-references to a skewed history of the 20th Century, ushered in by real-life costumed crime-fighters. The sequence incorporates floating titles over director Zack Snyder’s stylised time lapse slide show, spanning the 1930’s to 1985. Vintage […]
