James Gunn Explains Groot's Aging in the MCU

With Furious Fanboys still offline and without any sort of update on that situation, I decided to post this here because it's pretty cool and answers a huge fan question about Infinity War. In the Infinity War footage Marvel showed at D23 Expo and San Diego Comic Con, Groot appeared to be just a little …

Doctor Strange is Now My Favorite MCU Movie

I saw Doctor Strange a week before release, in 3D, and I loved it. I reviewed it on Furious Fanboys then, and this weekend I saw it a second time on a 82' screen in 2D with Dolby Atmos and I liked it even more the second time. It should definitely be seen in 3D …

The 20 Year Wait is Almost Over!

I've always been a huge fan of the original Independence Day. I can still remember sitting in the theater in 1996 watching the movie with a big tub of popcorn. It, and Stargate before it, were two of the best SciFi movies of the 90s. The Stargate movie series never happened due to the TV …

Warcraft Review

Warcraft
I've played World of Warcraft since the Friends & Family alpha in early 2004, and have only taken a few very short breaks of only a few months in the 12 years the game's been out. But I'm not a huge lore fiend. I played the three Warcraft RTSs, but I'm not one who obsesses …

Before Civil War, Remember How Perfect Winter Soldier Is...

I'm going to be seeing Captain America: Civil War this Thursday, and there are already a lot of hyperbolic reactions coming out from screenings over the weekend. But before completely buying into someone who claims it's "the best Marvel movie ever", we have to remember how perfect The Winter Soldier was. The Captain America sequel …

My Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

Normally I'd post this on Furious Fanboys, but I feel like doing it on my blog right now. As Man of Steel has been my favorite comic book movie since it was released in 2013, I was really looking forward to the DC Extended Universe kicking off in a big way. I still buy and …

Hollywood Has Targeted Batman V Superman for Their 'Superhero Fatigue' Narrative

Last year the movie "Birdman" won Best Picture. I don't know if you actually saw the movie, but it's a harshly anti-superhero film that was made as a rebellion in Hollywood against the genre. Despite comic book movies making a lot of money (except the terrible Fantastic Four), and audiences turning out to see them …

Crystal Skull is My Second Favorite Indy (Really)

With the announcement yesterday of Indiana Jones 5, everyone seems to be ranking their favorite Indiana Jones movie. Of course there's a lot of circa-2007 "Indy is old" jokes being regurgitated again (and they still aren't funny) and a lot of Crystal Skull bashing. Well I have another controversial opinion, and that's because Crystal Skull …

Snyder Says Jena Malone Isn't Robin or Batgirl in Batman V Superman

Yesterday people found out that Jena Malone's Batman V Superman character won't appear in the theatrical cut, leading many to say that she's Barbara Gordon when she's not. Now Entertainment Weekly has posted an article about the Ultimate Edition extended cut of Batman V Superman, and Zack Snyder kills two theories about Jena Malone's character: …

Barbara Gordon Isn't in Any Version of Batman V Superman - Stop the Clickbait

batgirl
UPDATE: Snyder himself confirms she isn't Robin or Batgirl. Yesterday Entertainment Weekly posted an article that said Jena Malone's Batman V Superman character was cut out of the theatrical version and will only appear in the R-rated Ultimate Cut. Many sites, such has Heroic Hollywood, jumped on this saying that Barbara Gordon was cut out …
