GEEK OUT!!! THE END OF THE DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE : AN ANALYSISGEEK OUT!!! THE END OF THE DC EXTENDED UNIVERSE : AN ANALYSIS
Once upon a time, Warner Bros ruled the superhero movie genre with its DC Comics lynchpin characters Superman and Batman.
A decade ago, Marvel Studios released its maiden production – Iron Man – and the world of movies have never been the same.
When it comes to the Singapore music scene, it does appear that its marginalisation in the 70s and 80s has ultimately caused the scene irreparable harm.

Just booked my tickets for Infinity War, IMAX 3D no less. But my expectations are at an absolute low for superhero films, especially with recent disappointments.

Diehard Star Wars fans who were somewhat mystified by the ‘soft reboot’ that director JJ Abrams fashioned with The Force Awakens (TFA) will find little comfort in Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi (TLJ), which remakes creator George Lucas’ legacy into a generic movie blockbuster.
