When I … [Read More...]

Trailer Trash (Talking) Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

So yeah I watched this trailer. My initial thoughts? Well, I did not laugh this time - that is definitely a plus.

Spectre (2015)

I have actually been lamenting putting this one together because I don't know where to start or finish. I finally decided, what the hell - I might as well put it out there and say I did not enjoy Spectre as much as I wanted to. In fact, my level of ambivalence was so great, that during the … [Read More...]
