‘Dunkirk’

  Finally got to see ‘Dunkirk’ on the big screen last week, courtesy of Warner Brothers.  There was a dessert service after the Q&A with Nolan, so yes, ‘For Your Consideration’ season has begun! I’m not a World War II buff by any means so Dunkirk didn’t hold a strong meaning to me beyond doing […]

‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’

  Warner Brothers, you sneaky studio… When the world is more in a mood for a silly Dark Knight, we get the silliest of them all.  ‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’ is the latest animated film from WB Animation, and it’s a homerun (for what it is). Reuniting Adam West and Burt Ward as […]

Legends

  Maybe my most memorable L.A. birthday was at Kate Mandellini’s. Probably would have been the regular spot if it still existed. Anyway, pretty much everyone I know was pissed we didn’t get to be in attendance at the ‘Heat’ screening they had at the Academy.  DeNiro, Pacino, Michael Mann, with a Q&A moderated by […]

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

‘Interstellar’

So what does the genius Christopher Nolan do with his ‘blank check’?  He makes a film that’s not quite on the level of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But honestly, what is? Interstellar is epic and ambitious and unique (especially in the current era of filmmaking).  The McConnaisance is the headliner of this ‘near future’ tale of […]

‘Gotham’

  So here’s the disclaimer, since I haven’t said this publicly in a couple years: whatever DC and/or Warner Brothers do now, I’m OK with it.  The genius Christopher Nolan has already told my story better than I could have possibly imagined.  Now, if I see something that I consider a Schumachery of my franchise, […]

The Completely Spoiled Fanboy Dark Knight Rises Review

  Alright, it’s late Sunday night/Monday morning when this goes out, so most of you who were interested has seen The Dark Knight Rises at least once right?  Good!  If you haven’t seen it, leave now.  Friday morning I gave my midnight screening, top level, not ruining anything for any of my friends review, if you’re still reading […]
