After last week's encounter with an alien symbiote, the Slob offers an apology to his female viewers by taking a look at Jennifer Garner as Elektra. So how does Marvel's first female-centric film hold up? Check out this week's episode of the Cinema Slob to find out!
“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.”Green Lantern (2011)
Now equipped with an alien ring, the Cinema Slob heads to Chicago's sci-fi convention Cyphan, to get help from the only man who knows comics, the Last Angry Geek! It's a fitting end to Superhero Month, and the first proper "crossover" from the Slob.Superman II (1980)
“Even with all of Lester’s silly comedy bits, Superman II is still superior to any other superhero movie that would come along for decades.”Red (2010)
“Well, it at least looks like everyone involved had a lot of fun making this movie.”The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) is a campy embarrassment
“I wish I could say this film had potential. But potential would imply that someone gave a shit.”Man of Steel (2013)
The first flying sequence is worth the price of admission all on its own. The scope and sense of wonder it evokes is overwhelming, as Superman rockets across the globe, through the clouds, and into space, grinning all the while. Because how can you not have fun when you’re Superman? I caught myself unconsciously whispering, “make me believe, make me believe” in a disturbingly erotic fashion that I’m sure was very uncomfortable for those sitting next to me.
