Film Review: Darkman (1990)

Darkman-bluray

SYNOPSIS: A hideously scarred and mentally unstable scientist seeks revenge against the crooks who made him like that. REVIEW: You might remember this one from its tag line at the time “Who is Dark Man?”. If not, you surely know it from its ominous poster art that looks like a cross between the “The Shadow“, “Batman” and the “Invisible man“. This 1990 dark comedy action film was an earlier creation by none other than “Evil … Continue reading

Film Review: Catwoman (2004)

Catwoman-2004-movie-2

SYNOPSIS: A shy woman, endowed with the speed, reflexes, and senses of a cat, walks a thin line between criminal and hero, even as a detective doggedly pursues her, fascinated by both of her personas. REVIEW: What is it about the film “Catwoman” that I really liked despite its noted failed arrival and circus of criticism? Of course the lovely Halle Berry lights up any screen whether you like the film or not. That much … Continue reading

Film Review: Legends of the Superheroes (1979)

Legends-of-the-Super-Heroes-1979-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: Heroes and villains of DC Comics square off in the two-part, live-action, made-for-TV (with a laugh track!) smackdowns of Legends of the Super Heroes. The Challenge: Batman and Robin (Adam West and Burt Ward of the live-action Batman TV series) lead The Flash, Green Lantern and more JLA members against The Riddler (Frank Gorshin reprising his TV role), Mordru, Weather Wizard and other Doom-dealers. The Legion’s ultimate gambit: trick the heroes into downing a … Continue reading

Film Review: Spider-Man 3 (2007)

spider-man-3-2007-movie-9

SYNOPSIS: A strange black entity from another world bonds with Peter Parker and causes inner turmoil as he contends with new villains, temptations, and revenge. REVIEW: The 3rd in the Spider-Man trilogy directed again by the kinetic minded Sam Raimi. This was to be the last of the series featuring the talents of Raimi, Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire. Like its previous films, it carries over the storylines seamlessly into this 3rd offering. This time … Continue reading

Film Review: The Punisher (2004)

The-Punisher-2004-movie-11

SYNOPSIS: After his wife and family are killed, G-Man Frank Castle takes it upon himself to distribute punishment to those responsible for the vendetta. REVIEW: After the rather failed attempt of kick starting “The Punisher” under the 1989 release (of same name), Artisan and Lions Gate stepped in to fire-up the “potential” franchise in a new direction (and cast). This new realization would feature actor Thomas Jane in the role of Frank Castle (aka The … Continue reading

Justice-League-of-america-1997-movie-2

SYNOPSIS: An evil Weather Man intent on destroying New Metro City with a series of malevolent meteorological mishaps? Can the super-powered (and semi-employed) Justice League of America save the day? Or will New Metro be drowned in a humongous tidal wave? REVIEW: The early days of super hero films are nothing like they are today. FX were not up to par, budgets were not high enough to warrant extravagant digital work and most of our … Continue reading

Film Review: Spider-Man (2002)

Spider-Man poster 1

SYNOPSIS: “Based on Marvel Comics’ superhero character, this is a story of Peter Parker who is a nerdy high-schooler. He was orphaned as a child, bullied by jocks, and can’t confess his crush for his stunning neighbourhood girl Mary Jane Watson. To say his life is ‘miserable’ is an understatement. But one day while on an excursion to a laboratory a runaway radioactive spider bites him, and his life changes in a way no one … Continue reading
