X-Men: Apocalypse Deleted Scenes – Verdicts and Criticism

X-Men: Apocalypse Deleted Scenes – Verdicts and Criticism

X-Men: Apocalypse came out in Digital HD last Friday.  Along with it came a selection of deleted scenes.  Here, I review and criticize the team’s choices. Mall Scene: “Safety Dance.” The whole montage is set to a cover of “Safety Dance.” I’m actually a little embarrassed, but in a good way. This sequence probably ranks as the scene fans were most disappointed to see cut.  For me, the hype outdid the actual scene, unfortunately. Kurt’s…

LEGION: New trailers go for funny, underwhelm with ableism

Legion, an FX TV series following Charles Xavier’s son, dropped two teaser trailers this past weekend.  Both trailers clock in at under 20 seconds, and both attempt to add some lightheartedness to the hype for the series. Unfortunately, that humor comes at the cost of the dignity of mentally ill people.  The first trailer, below, titled ‘WTF,’ shows a catatonic man drooling.  David Haller and another character stare at the character in apparent disbelief.  Considering…

DISCOURSE DISH: Geoff Johns Comments on Justice League ‘Tone’

DISCOURSE DISH: Geoff Johns Comments on Justice League ‘Tone’

This past Thursday, Geoff Johns made some comments to the Wall Street Journal about Justice League.  These comments focused primarily on comics-accuracy and the intended tone of the upcoming film. Of course, instead of just focusing on those comments, Wall Street Journal proceeded to get its nasty value judgments all over the article.  Regurgitating tired anti-DCEU talking points like reshoots, second-week drops, and the factually incorrect idea that ‘Neither Ben Affleck’s Batman nor Henry Cavill’s Superman…

Over the last couple of days, Potter posted several tweets about a “little something” he was working on.  He requested fans send him their best…

#TBT AT THE MOVIES: Superman (1978) – nostalgia, but not much else

#TBT AT THE MOVIES: Superman (1978) – nostalgia, but not much else

A lot of people really love — or at least purport to love — the original Superman movie.  So I decided to open this column with a review of this classic.  I’d never seen it before tonight, and was pretty stoked to give it a shot. And I won’t lie — it kind of disappointed me. I’m not a hard sell when it comes to movies.  Usually, if I have fun, I can forgive pretty much anything.  Apparently, though,…
