Canadian Screen Awards 2017 – The Red Carpet

The Canadian Screen Awards are always a lot of fun for Sue and I. It allows is the opportunity to catch up with friends in front of and behind the camera and make new ones as well. We were wonderfully outfitted for the night by the folks at Vistek. Make sure you check out their…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) – Zack Snyder

  The Hero’s Code. It apparently means nothing to Batman (Ben Affleck). It apparently means nothing to Superman (Henry Cavill). And that’s troubling, because as a child, they were two of the characters I grew up with that taught me what it was. But even worse, the creative forces behind the scenes of the latest…

Superman Returns (2006) – Bryan Singer

  It’s back to the Sci-Fi Chronicles book (I realize this one is starting to overshadow the Great Movie – 100 Years of Film book, but I’m really enjoying it, especially when I can chain-watch a series of films one after the other). This time, I have a look at Bryan Singer’s 2006 update of…

Superman III (1983) – Richard Lester

However, if director Richard Lester’s version of…

Superman II (1980) – Richard Lester

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles book just keeps paying off, I’m loving this incredibly large tome, and I can’t believe how quickly I’m working my way through it (admittedly I’ve seen, and reviewed a lot of the stuff before). Having previously reviewed Superman: The Movie, I moved forward to the next title, Superman II. Now, I…

Superman (1978) – Richard Donner

Man of Steel (2013) – Zack Snyder

A disappointing mess. That’s what Warner, DC Comics, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder have served up. I love the character of Superman! I’ve got comics piled in my apartment featuring the familiar red cape and blue suit, I liked Superman Returns, there are even moments in III that I enjoy (even I won’t touch Quest…
