The Wolverine (2013)
“It gets really, really dumb. It honestly starts feeling uncomfortably like a deleted scene from X-Men Origins: Cheap-looking CGI, nonsensical plot developments, and laughable execution. The only thing that prevents it from having the worst payoff to a mystery in a movie this year is the fact that Star Trek Into Darkness came out.”Max Fleischer's Superman
“And here we catch a brief glimpse of the seething anger Clark Kent must keep bottled deep inside. The resentment of being constantly humiliated by Lois Lane, and of being upstaged by her repeatedly, even as he must save her life. Can’t he have this one simple little story, Lois? Just this one?!”Marvel’s Agent Carter: the final four
“Nothing in the later episodes makes me want to retcon my original views. The series retained its early strengths and stuck to the landing.”Judge Dredd (1995)
“Every time Assante says the word ‘law’, he goes to a rather guttural region of his throat that generates a line reading that’s simply hysterical.”The Prestige (2006)
“The Prestige is an interesting puzzle that’s complex while still being fun. Well, as ‘fun’ as a Christopher Nolan film can be, anyway. ”4 reasons Marvel should give up on Ant-Man
“Aren’t there literally hundreds of C-list Marvel heroes who deserve a boost more than Ant-Man? I mean, this is a guy who communicates telepathically with ants.”
