2017: Superhero Movies and What I Want from Them – Midseason Report

In January of this year, I wrote my take on the superhero movies coming out this year, what I expected from them, and what I hoped wouldn’t happen with them. By the end of the article, anyone who read it would be forgiven if they thought I wasn’t exactly optimistic. I spit a bit of venom, but I generally wasn’t overly worried. If anything, I was more worried in 2016. Halfway through, and it’s time...[Read More]

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

“Does whatever a spider can!” This was the perfect Spider-Man movie I’ve been waiting for. Hell, they even opened the movie with the Spider-Man theme song from the 60s cartoon! Tom was indeed the perfect Spider-Man in my eyes. He had the wit, the smarts, and the looks. I’m just glad they skipped the whole Uncle Ben dying, great power comes great responsibility thing, and how he got his...[Read More]

Black Panther Teaser Trailer Released

“What do you know about Wakanda?” After the wonderful success of Wonder Woman, I’ve been feeling renewed hope for the DCEU in general. With the imminent release of Spider-Man: Homecoming in July, I knew DC’s feel-good window was short-lived. But I was willing to bask in it for as long as I could. Then Marvel looked at me and said, “here. Hold my beer.” And out p...[Read More]

Have You Seen…Zardoz?

Release Date: February 6, 1974 Director: Jon Boorman Starring: Sean Connery, Charlotte Rampling, Sara Kestelman, John Alderton, Niall Buggy Favorite quote: “The penis is evil!” – Zardoz I haven’t don’t this shtick in a while, so I figured I’d restart it by going full WTF. Imagine a movie that is more philosophically pretentious than the Matrix trilogy and has a premise that is more batshit insane ...[Read More]

Wonder Woman Impressions

“Oh, I really like her!” The Digital Crack crew saw Wonder Woman over the weekend. Three of them decided to write their impressions of the movie from three different perspectives. Cousin Jose is the DC expert; he speaks from the point of view of a hardcore DC fan. Uncle Willy is a Marvel guy but still enjoys DC books; he writes from the perspective of a more casual fan. Meanwhile, Puni...[Read More]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

Fox on the run! (Note: This will be a two-part review. Punisher and Uncle Willy viewed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 separately and wanted to give their thoughts on the movie.) Punisher (Podcast Personality) To start off, there WILL be spoilers towards the end of my section. I will note when it’s coming up. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was just amazing. James Gunn did it again IMO. This movie s...[Read More]

Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer Released

Valhalla I am coming… Before I go any further, I’d like to ask Hollywood for one small favor. Could you please lay off the old pop and rock songs for your trailers? It’s getting kinda old, guys. Yes, I know this is LED FUCKING ZEPPELIN on this trailer, but…seriously. I’m sure you folks have someone in the mail room who can string together a few notes. Just show a litt...[Read More]

I have been waiting to see the season finale. There will be some spoilers ahead. So here’s the ...[Read More]

Being a Dick about Movies

CinemaSins can’t have the monopoly Sundays are a religious holiday for me. I’m not actually religious, but my Sundays are sacrosanct to me. I refuse to do any real work on those days. I work in IT, so trying to maintain that habit can be difficult. But I rationalize my situation as easily as possible. Unless a server actually catches fire, I’m not worried about doing my job. It’s during this self-...[Read More]
