'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' Review: DC Movies' Grim Self-Importance

'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice': 'Grim and ponderous' DC Comics adaptation starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck. 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' review: Self-important 'hip and affected pessimism' According to no less an expert then director Zack Snyder, when saying the title of his relentlessly grave, monochromatic, and humorless superhero epic, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, do not say “versus.” Just say the letter “v.” And savor the thought because it's the only instance of economy in a film that otherwise revels in its unholy excess of words, sounds, pixels, edits, explosions, and regard for its own importance. Make no mistake: to those tasked with guiding the fortunes of corporate behemoths (in this instance, Warner Bros., the […]

'Interstellar' Movie Review: Whole Less Than Sum of Ravishing Parts

'Interstellar' movie with Anne Hathaway. 'Interstellar' movie review: 'Ravishing, but overextended mind-bender' There are many intriguing questions raised in director Christopher Nolan's ravishing, overextended mind-bender Interstellar. One of the first: has a theoretical physicist ever received an executive producer credit on a nine-figure, studio movie? Probably not, but if 74-year old Caltech professor Kip Thorne were to find any director willing to tap his intellect for an above-the-line credit, it would be Nolan. His movies are puzzle boxes of plot and theme that have become grander in scope as they've become more opaque in effect. At this point, every Nolan film contains the moment when we ask ourselves if the director himself has completely thought everything through. That's certainly true […]

'Man of Steel' Movie Review: Zack Snyder to Blame for Dull & Heart-Deprived Superman

Henry Cavill in 'Man of Steel.' Man of Steel review: Zack Snyder's sensory-bludgeoning Superman movie lacks humor, charm, wonder Two hundred and twenty-five million dollars buys a lot when you're making a superhero blockbuster. In Zack Snyder's 143-minute sensory bludgeoning, Man of Steel, the director spends almost a quarter of a billion smackers on planetary vistas, collapsing buildings, flying bodies, and a sound mix so aggressive you'll go blind as well as deaf. But seemingly, there's nary a line in the bloated budget for humor, charm, wonder, or even the slightest acknowledgment that we're supposed to be having fun. Any justification for such a self-serious take on Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's iconic creation is financial, not creative. Maybe humor, […]

'The Dark Knight Rises': Right-Wing Political Message vs. Occupy Wall Street? + Rabid Fans Attack Critics

'The Dark Knight Rises.' The Dark Knight Rises right-wing politics? July 27 update: In Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, Who represents You People? (Did you read the remarks by U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's wife last week?) So, who does? Bane or Bruce Wayne? Their names sound similar (could that be a liberal conspiracy?), but while one is a mad terrorist, the other is a billionaire-vigilante do-gooder. The Guardian's Catherine Shoard has reached her own conclusions about the matter. The title of her article says it all: “Dark Knight Rises: fancy a capitalist caped crusader as your superhero?” It's well worth checking out. Below is a snippet. “So it should be no surprise that The Dark Knight Rises […]
