Shaken Not Stirred: JAMES BOND Is A Free Agent

James Bond is one of the most iconic movie franchises in cinema history and throughout its 50+ years of living on the big screens it has captured the fantasy of movie goers around the world. With that kind of staying power, especially as the attention span for dialogue and story development has dipped compared to even 20 years ago, we can see why the franchise has so many suitors lined up for a date or two. The relationship between Sony and James Bond has contractually expired which is why we have not seen the man who is the poster...

We then see Hela standing with an anticipating grin, crushing his trusty Mjolnir hammer in her open hand.

Is Joss Whedon BATGIRL Friendly?

In 2000 we entered a territory rife with slapstick humor, ridicule, and low expectations. It was the world of comic book movies that was trying to separate itself from the shambles of Dolph Lundgren’s The Punisher, Adam West’s Batman, and the laughable live action Spiderman movie of 1977. The X-Men movie of 2000 began a production of come to life comic story arcs that excited both the old and young fans of the Marvel Universe and of comic books period. Fast forward to 2015 and we have seen the quality of these movies jump so far ahead that we...
