Review – The Equalizer

Got a Problem? Odds Against You? Call The Equalizer. Denzel Washington is back, in a major way, with The Equalizer, based on the 1980s television series. Robert McCall works at a Home Depot-type store in Boston, and when he sees injustice, he doesn’t write a blog about it, he doesn’t call the cops, and he  [ Read More ]

Instead of just sitting down counting the days until the dual release of Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, PopCultureGalaxy has decided to take a look back at the Assassin’s Creed series. I, Zak, am currently devouring every single main game (and then some) in the AC universe in order, and will be collecting  [ Read More ]

Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

  “So… They’re aliens?” “No. That would be stupid. They’re reptiles!” Despite what some might tell you, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are not a sacred and revered property; they’re a bunch of silly kids who kick butt and talk smack like Spider-Man on a sugar buzz. This irreverence carries over to their newest incarnation,  [ Read More ]

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

  Instead of my usual quote, I will instead insert a paraphrase, while reminding readers that this is, in fact, a family film: “I may be an asshole, but I’m not 100% a dick.” The Marvel Cinematic Universe is just that, a universe. Not limited to adventures on Earth, we’ve seen interplanetary antics in both  [ Read More ]

“In the future, do I make it?” “…No. But we have a chance to change that.” It’s may be hard to believe, but Days of Future Past is the seventh entry in the X-Men series. After veering wildly into spin-off territory with a pair of Wolverine films and something of a reboot in the distant  [ Read More ]

After a bumpy franchise reboot just five years after the… Let’s say “contested” Spider-Man 3, director Marc Webb and his team had their work cut out for them making a sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. At least they had the perfect opportunity to step back, take what worked and run with it, to ditch what  [ Read More ]

“I told you… SHIELD doesn’t negotiate.” In the two years since The Avengers saved the world (but totally wrecked Grand Central Station), everybody’s returned to their old lives. Iron Man took a vacation to Tennessee, Thor went back home, and The Hulk returned to not being in movies. For the most part, everything returned to  [ Read More ]

The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Trailer Has Arrived

Marvel’s most risky film since Thor is undoubtedly the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy.  The property is not well known amongst comic book fans much less the average film goers.  We all assumed that to gain some notoriety, Marvel would have featured a TV spot for the film during the Super Bowl.  They chose instead  [ Read More ]

Review – Robocop

robocop1

“Dead or alive, you’re coming with me” Robocop, the robot cop, finds himself in a unique predicament. It’s been decades since a decent movie has carried his name, and now that he’s back, it’s as part of the Hollywood Remake Machine. The violence is toned down to fit a PG-13 rating, and Robo now rides  [ Read More ]

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Enemies Unite Sizzle Trailer

After The Amazing Spider-Man hit theaters I had mixed feelings walking out after my viewing.  On one hand it did improve on some of things from Sam Raimi’s trilogy, most notably Peter Parker’s humor.  But Spider-Man 2 remains my favorite of all the Spider-Man films with both the action and story firing on all cylinders.   [ Read More ]

Don’t yell at Brick. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, the endlessly quotable 2004 comedy classic, was getting ripe for a sequel, and, nine years later, here we are. Ron Burgundy and friends jump into 1980 with mostly new jokes, but is it worth the nine-year wait, or would Anchorman be better served fading into  [ Read More ]

“The Aether awakens us. The Convergence returns.” Many ages ago, the forces of Asgard defeated the Dark Elves and their leader, Malekith. Now he’s back, with a creative plan to destroy the Nine Realms, and… That’s pretty much the whole plot. Thankfully, there’s a ton of character and humor in the snappy-if-thin script, as well  [ Read More ]

Earlier it was reported that Marvel was shopping around a package deal to networks and on demand services for four Marvel series.  Looks like Netflix is the lucky purchaser of that deal.  The four shows includes Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.  According to the press release from Marvel and Netflix, the plan  [ Read More ]

Why The S.H.I.E.L.D. Hate?

With two episodes out for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.l.D., I gotta say that I’m really disappointed.  Not in the show, but in the response it has been getting from fans.  It’s as if they never saw a trailer or read the countless interviews from the show’s creators, or even seen a film set in the  [ Read More ]

So… We now live in a world where Marvel has a shared cinematic universe both on the small and big screen.  And you know what?  I freakin’ love it.  I know that wasn’t very professional but I had to get that out.  Was this the best hour of television?  I wouldn’t go that far.  But  [ Read More ]

This is a spoiler-free review of Riddick. For part 2 of Riddick-Mania, click here.   We may have thought Richard B. Riddick was gone for good, but he’s back with a vengeance. Riddick has smaller budget, a narrower scope, an excellent script, and a nine year gap in which in which David Twohy’s directing skills  [ Read More ]

Against all odds, Richard B. Riddick returns to theaters this Friday, nine years after his last feature film left audiences hanging on one hell of an ending… But we’ll get to that.   For now, we’re going back to 2000, when writer-director David Twohy first introduced audiences to Riddick, as well as a pre-Fast &  [ Read More ]

Living for Today vs. Being Fully Present

There are two new films making the rounds that deal with the concept of “living for today,” but with the hedonistic interpretation of that phrase that puts all of the emphasis on sensual pleasure for its own sake, maintaining a comfortable status quo, and assuming that the joys and interests of adolescence can be maintained  [ Read More ]

“You don’t have to be a bad-ass to be a superhero. You just have to be brave.” Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass (yes, yes, based on the comic book by Mark Millar) was a fresh take, not just on the superhero genre, but also on the vigilante film, becoming the heir apparent to both Batman and Death  [ Read More ]

Blue Jasmine Review

While, Blue Jasmine, the latest film from acclaimed director and actor, Woody Allen, does not set out to be primarily comedic, there are plenty moments of humour which leaves the viewer laughing audibly without even realising it. This compelling drama, which is filled with tension, has an unsettling albeit dark comedic side to it. The  [ Read More ]

Review – 2 Guns

2guns2

2 Guns is the story of two men, undercover with different organizations, out to steal a ton of cash from some really bad guys. Long story short, Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg aren’t exactly miscast, as they have fine chemistry together, but their characters are unlikable and poorly written. Despite some snappy dialogue, the story  [ Read More ]
