Movie Review: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

IMDB, Batman v Superman“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” on IMDB

Action/Adventure, 151 Minutes, 2016

DC Comics has, sadly, doubled down on their loud, dark reimagining of their flagship heroes. While I truly enjoyed 2013’s “Man of Steel” [My Review], it was the soulful examination of a young Clark Kent that sold me. The brash deluge of destruction porn that ended the movie only worked as a counterpoint to that.

Soulful character development or special effects: guess which one they tossed for sequel?


Game Review: Batman: Arkham City (PS3)

“Batman: Arkham City” at Amazon.com

Rated Mature, Reviewed on PS3

“Batman: Arkham Asylum” was a revelation.  It single-handedly redeemed the entire gaming industry for the multiple generations of terrible, hackneyed, money-grubbing excuses for Batman games that littered the landscape before.  Never before had the depth of the character and its history been explored so completely.  Fans truly couldn’t have asked for a better game.
