Seriously. I’m looking forward to this movie more than “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
But let’s see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn already!

Don’t get me wrong. I liked “Unfriended.” But credit where credit is due.
Writer/ director Nacho Vigalondo made the film “Open Windows” last year. It treads similar ground in the conceit of using a computer monitor as the canvas for telling the story. Continue Reading →
“Unfriended” chronicles the story of six friends who participated in the internet shaming of one Laura Barnes by commenting on an embarrassing YouTube video of Laura. Their bullying drove the girl to suicide — an event recorded on a cellphone and uploaded to the internet for the morbidly curious to see and comment on.

Before everyone got all wet over the “Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens” trailer, the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer leaked online.
It would appear that since “Man of Steel,” the Superman (Henry Cavill) has become something of a god in the eyes of some. Others still see him as a dangerous threat.
Batman (Ben Affleck) falls into the latter camp. He’s even got a souped up battle suit a la “The Dark Knight Returns” to combat Superman, hitting him with the ominous “Do you bleed? You will.”
At least, ti’s assumed that’s Batman. Who knows? Could be a voice-over from the real villain of the movie, whom we haven’t even seen yet. Will it be Luthor? A Luthor minion? We simply don’t know, and that’s okay. The movie is titled Batman v Superman, so they play up that angle. Fine.

Until we see it all in context visa vis the movie en toto, jury is still out.
In case you’ve been under a rock, here’s the trailer. What say ye?
Here’s a book review from “The Book Diaries” for “By Virtue Fall,” the first song in the “Shadowdance” action/ urban fantasy saga. Continue Reading →
