  3. Comics on Film: Reexamining Lex Luthor in the DCEU
      As many longtime comics fans can likely attest, Lex Luthor has been one of the most fascinating supervillains for the majority of the last thirty years. Originally conceived as a mad scientist out to destroy the original superhero, a reinvention in 1986 by writer/artist John Byrne in the pages of The Man of Steel repositoned Luthor as a villain of our time: a man scrambling to accumulate power in as many ways as possible, in order to directly challenge a man who doesn't accumulate power, but has it: Superman.   The mere fact that Luthor, a non-powered (albeit brilliant) human being stands as the arch-nemesis of one of fiction's most raw powerful icons should say a lot about him: even with all of his physical limitations in the context...

  5. Rumor Patrol: 'Star Wars: Episode IX' Will Go "Elsewhere" and Unite the Three Trilogies
      Last month we learned that J.J. Abrams will be returning to direct Star Wars: Episode IX. Since that announcement, fans have been buzzing over what that would mean for the new trilogy’s capper.    Star Wars: The Force Awakens was very reminiscent of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, a choice that left some critics and audiences wanting more or, to be more accurate, wanting something new. Many have been speculating if Episode IX would follow in those footsteps. A couple morsels from the director himself may shed some lens-flared light on the situation.   Abrams and composer Michael Giacchino were recently interviewed on a BBC radio program. When asked about working on Star Wars and Star Trek, series...

  7. 'Thor: Ragnarok' Reviews Suggest We've Reached Peak Marvel Cinematic Universe
    No longer limited by the confines of social media postings, critics are unleashing their full reviews of Thor: Ragnarok today and the buzz continues to be very strong. Could this be the best-reviewed entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet? Is it at least the funniest? Current champion in the former is still the initial installment, 2008's Iron Man, with its 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Within a few hours of the review embargo being lifted, Ragnarok sits at a very impressive 98%! But things could change by the time the movie's released on November 3 and more formal reactions have been published. For now, here's a breakdown of the first wave of praise and criticisms with the latest MCU blockbuster:   Is this the best...

  8. 'Get Out,' 'I, Tonya' and 'Call Me By Your Name' Among 2017 Gotham Award Nominees
    Awards season has begun! October might sound a little early for year-end awards, but the IFP Gotham Awards, presented by the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP), are limited to films directed by a U.S. born or based filmmaker and are "made with an economy of means." So, don't expect any blockbusters to be honored. Obviously, not every movie released during the year is submitted for consideration, but traditionally the nominees are good indicators of films that have enjoyed critical plaudits; often they end up winning Academy Awards as well. Last year, for example, eventual Oscar winner Moonlight received the Best Feature award at the Gothams. That being said, what about this year's crop of award contenders? We'll focus on the Best Feature...
