    "I heard about you. Didn't think you were real." - Cyborg

    "I'm real when it's useful." - Batman

    If you say this film and the previous bastardized cut are the same, not only is that facetious, but that makes you a bad critic.

    I never thought I'd see the day where this film was released.

    'Man of Steel' is a somewhat enjoyable origin story that crumbles under its incessant need for world-ending destruction, tossing Superman's desire to…

    Ultimate Edition

    Revisiting this film is fascinating after the years that have passed since its release. Fandom declared war on itself, Warner declared war with its directors, and Zack Snyder as a person had suffered a tragedy. With the upcoming release of his true vision coming to life, my opinion has evolved beyond my hate that was born back in 2016.

    The Theatrical Cut is abysmal....and yet....the Ultimate Edition rises.

    Now, this isn't a full-fledged heel turn opinion right into…

    Watcher

    ★★

    Of the two films this year starring female leads watching people through their windows, you're better off skipping this and watching 'Kimi'.

    'Watcher' is a film devoid of entertainment, story, or purpose.

    At just 90 minutes you'd think the film would have a tight script with excellent thrills...but instead, the film drags at an excruciating pace where nothing happens.

    Maika Monroe is a Scream Queen but this film is far more interested in gaslighting her character than doing anything remotely…

  • The Black Phone

    The Black Phone

    ★★★★

    Gen X-ers with rose-tinted glasses have always bragged about their childhood and how "safe & freeing" it was compared to kids today. What these people fail to realize is that they grew up at a time when kidnappings weren't as highly reported as they are now. The terrifying truth is that any Gen X-er that managed to make it home after a long day of hanging out with friends...survived.

    'The Black Phone' is the scariest film I've seen since 'Host (2020)'.…

    Drive My Car

    ★★½

    Look, I don't want to upset anyone, nor should anyone's rating of a film be taken as a full-on insult, but I won't lie about my enjoyment of a film solely to "fit in".

    'Drive My Car' has all the ingredients for a compelling drama based on grief, regret, and bottled-up misery...but...that doesn't mean it had to be this monotonous.

    I mean, for a completely emotional story, why on earth is everyone emotionless? Like 90% of this film lacks any…

    "Fear is a tool. When that light hits the sky...it's not just a call. It's a warning." - The Batman

    The first superhero film arrived with the release of 'The Mask of Zorro' in 1920. Since then, they've begun to populate the screen with all the splendor heroism can only bring.

    Despite all of the television shows already made available, the world would never be the same when 'Superman' hits theaters in 1978. Unfortunately, his reign as king of the…
