THE SUICIDE SQUAD [Review]: I’m A Motherf___ing Superhero!

THE SUICIDE SQUAD [Review]: I'm A Motherf___ing Superhero!
You could probably get away with calling writer/director James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad an R-rated version of Guardians of the Galaxy, but it isn’t entirely fair or correct. It’s a complicated comparison, much like Gunn’s status with Marvel Studios that allowed him to make the film in the first place and whether or not The …

ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE [Review]: Final Crisis?

STAR TREK – LOWER DECKS [Review]: Vibrant Voyage.

STAR TREK - LOWER DECKS [Review]: Vibrant Voyage.
The third currently-running incarnation of the long-running, and wildly influential, Star Trek series is one of its least likely: a half-hour animated comedy. The brainchild of Mike McMahan -- alumni of Second City, and former writer and/or co-creator for Rick And Morty, Solar Opposites, and with experience working on both Drawn Together and South Park …
