    Comic Book Villains

    ★★½

    Rival comic book store owners wage war on each other while trying to get their hands on a massive collection of vintage comics from a little old lady who is reluctant to sell. 

    If this movie had fully embraced the mean streak it shows in its second half,, "Comic Book Villains" could have been a slacker/nerd culture cult classic ala "Fanboys" or "Clerks."  As it is, it's a slightly half-baked, but mildly entertaining heist/caper comedy set in the comic-book world, with a great cast incl. Donal Logue, DJ Qualls, and Natasha Lyonne. Your mileage may vary depending on your level of comic book fandom.

    Sinister Squad

    Good Lord. If you thought DC's "Suicide Squad" was bad, wait till you get a load of this knock-off from our friends at The Asylum. In "Sinister Squad," fairy tale heroines Alice and Goldilocks assemble a team of storybook villains like Rumplestiltskin, the Queen of Hearts, and The Big Bad Wolf to help them battle Death himself, who wants to escape into the "real" world... or something. The story quickly descends into a hopeless muddle, and all you're left with is a bunch of bad actors in Halloween store costumes, running around a warehouse beating the crap out of each other for 90 minutes. 

    AVOID.

    Awkward looking CGI toon with the famed cat accidentally stumbling out of the comic pages and into the "real" world, then trying to find his way back "home." The tone is shrill, the animation sucks and its loaded with annoyingly unfunny new characters. My 7 year old thought it was funny but sitting thru this one will be a chore for anyone older than that.

  • The Fantastic Four

    The Fantastic Four

    ★★

    Roger Corman's ultra-cheap film version of the Marvel Comics series follows Reed, Johnny, Ben and Sue as they gain their super powers during a failed space mission, then battle the evil Doctor Doom and a subterranean villain called "The Jeweler."

    This flick was made on a shoestring budget and then was shelved permanently, merely so that the producers could maintain their film rights to the FF property. It's never been officially released and I've been wanting to see it for…
