Not a full blown Story Analysis, Quick Takes will give you bite-sized impressions of a chunk of a TV series, still as yet unfinished. Episodes 4 & 5 of The Boys Season 2 have been released and here are my thoughts. Check out my Story Analysis of season 1 and quick takes on episodes Continue Reading
Not a full blown Story Analysis, Quick Takes will give you bite-sized impressions of a chunk of a TV series, still as yet unfinished. The first three episodes of The Boys Season 2 have been released and here are my thoughts. Check out my Story Analysis of season 1 first.
Nolan begins…. Christopher Nolan’s much vaunted Batman trilogy consisted of Batman Begins (BB), The Dark Knight (TDK) and The Dark Knight Rises (TDKR). The trilogy has been credited for legitimising superhero movies after the damage done by the campy Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.
Previously…In season 1, we were introduced to our protagonists – seven superhuman misfits (Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Five, Ben and Vanya) mentored by an idiosyncratic and eccentric gent in the style of the X-Men and the Doom Patrol. Copping story elements from the Dark Phoenix saga, the Umbrella Academy succeeded Continue Reading
I must confess that I currently have a love-hate relationship with HBO’s Watchmen series. I went from largely dislike to grudgingly admire in the first and second episodes but with Watchmen Episode Three, my feelings have gone up to full-blown hate!
As mentioned in the review of the pilot, the problem with HBO’s Watchmen series is that while it is well written and well acted, the connections to the original Watchmen graphic novel are tenuous and tacked on for branding purposes only. Well, at least in the pilot. But what about Continue Reading

Apart from Daredevil and perhaps The Punisher, the quality of Marvel TV-Netflix series has been mixed. The first season of Jessica Jones only succeeded because of its engaging villain, Killgrave (played by David Tennent) while season 2 was decidedly inferior.
Warner Bros have released a 5-minute extended trailer for the upcoming Aquaman movie. And it rocks!!!
If you like your superheroes light and you are not too concerned about well-developed plots and characterisations, then Venom is the movie for you!
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.
Oh dear. Just when I thought I might have been spared from yet another lame adaptation of one of the best superhero comic book stories of all time.
Christopher Nolan’s game-changing Dark Knight is a decade old! Here’s my contemporaneous review. It makes a whole lot of sense that the second film in Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman franchise is called The Dark Knight. After all, Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns revived the moribund comic book industry Continue Reading
Comic book artist Steve Ditko was found dead in his New York home this week. Ditko was 90.
The media juggernaut that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had humble beginnings in a 1961 comic book created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby – the first issue of Fantastic Four.
M. Night Shyamalan’s unlikely sequel to his classic 2000 superhuman film Unbreakable arrives in cinemas in January 2019.
Fourteen years! That’s how long it took director Brad Bird to put together the sequel to Pixar’s animated foray into the superhero genre, The Incredibles.
After surprising most observers with a worldwide box office of $783 million (against a $58 million budget), it was inevitable that a Deadpool sequel would be produced and fast – within two years!
Ironically, the groundwork for the enormous success of Avengers : Infinity War was laid almost EIGHTY years ago by Marvel’s main comic book rival DC Comics in Justice Society of America.
To be honest I had reservations about Infinity War.
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.
