“Now to me, starting off with the concept of Superman and Batman beating each other’s brains out for two hours is just getting off on the wrong foot. It doesn’t really fit the characters, it’s a waste of potential, and it’s just plain not very interesting.”

“The script keeps adding twists and turns to the story, giving us several moments where you think the movie’s just about over, only to end up having to sit through another chase sequence.”
“Batman is a testament to how with enough hype, even a fundamentally mediocre film can break box office records and automatically become a ‘classic’ after the requisite number of years have passed.”

Enjoy this delayed episode of Minority Report Reviews where Tom tries his best to deal with a grumpy Harold and talk about 2008’s The Incredible Hulk!

“The bad news is Kick-Ass 2 isn’t as good as Kick-Ass. There are certain key elements of awesome from the first movie that are absent this time around, and without them there’s just no way to completely recapture the magic.
