“Even people who otherwise have issues with the feminist movement pretty much universally agree that this is a freakin’ brilliant action movie and you should see it and see it again.”
“The movie gives us answers to exactly none of these questions. And here I thought the ending of Lost was a gyp.”
“The four TNG movies had some good ideas, but those were sadly overshadowed by the studio’s desire to turn TNG into something it wasn’t.”
“Here are the five books I think DC is going to struggle with. Quite a few of them I actually want to see succeed, but even I’ll admit they have an uphill battle ahead of them.”
“It would appear Mirror Universe episodes really need at least a couple of the regular universe characters to cross over, to counterbalance all the cartoonish evil on display.”
“The moral of the story appears to be clear: God may not be dead, but if you’re not a Christian, you soon will be, and He’ll make sure you have the most horrible, painful death possible.”
“But it is kind of sad that, even in an Elseworlds title, Bruce Wayne will always have WASP features when, in many ways, Batman would make a lot of sense as a black man.”
“Both Maggie and Schwarzenegger’s performance show potential, even as their novice missteps prevent them from fulfilling it.”
“And maybe I’m too jaded by Mirror Universe episodes by now, but I’m not at all surprised they blew up the Enterprise, on a show called Enterprise.”
“At what point does going through the motions of capturing the Joker again and again while knowing he’ll escape to kill dozens or hundreds more become so ludicrous that it defies disbelief?”
“Unlike A Beautiful Mind, at least The Theory of Everything can admit that the husband and wife at the center of its story eventually got a divorce.”
“The movie also made me think about how much I would sacrifice for my own child, and the feelings of hopelessness that would arise from not being able to do everything I want for my family.”
“Just imagine a standup comic telling you the same joke over and over for 105 minutes just to make sure you got it, and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what this movie is like.”
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”
“There’s something almost fetishistic about the way people would love to see the Dark Knight take the Man of Steel down a peg or two.”
“It has the effect of reminding us while we’re watching a tightly-plotted crime drama that there is in fact a billionaire dressed up as a giant bat who refuses to use guns, fights criminals who have guns, and yet routinely emerges unscathed.”
“The first season of Daredevil, currently streaming on Netflix, delivers a great cast, great action, great cinematography, and great direction, all of which come together to make a show that is, quite simply, great.”
“I wonder if it ever crossed Rodriguez’s mind that the grainy film and ‘missing reel’ scenes of such movies were not put in there intentionally.”
“While a lot of people will see it due to all the awards and accolades it received in the last year, this is primarily a film made by a cinephile for cinephiles.”
