Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in Justice League

Batman goes by many names, but none as intellectually imposing as The World’s Greatest Detective. Sure he may have gizmos and gadgets at his disposal, and a lot of it helps him discover clues about the criminal underworld. But we really haven’t seen a film where those same detective skills are at the forefront of the character.

However, it appears that director Matt Reeves wants to bring a noir style to the world of The Batman. Pull down those Venetian blinds, and read more about what Reeves has planned for the Caped Crusader.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Xbox Games With Gold

One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.

The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in July 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Director Says It Will Be R-Rated, Bloody, Have Practical Effects
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Hellboy

The first two film adaptations of Mike Mignola‘s Hellboy comic series, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman in the title role, were not the greatest financial and critical successes. They did okay, especially Hellboy II: The Golden Army, but not as well as hoped. Still, the movies have a faithful fan following who were upset to learn that instead of a third movie with del Toro and Perlman, the franchise was to be rebooted with Stranger Things star David Harbour taking over for Perlman in what’s currently titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

So how do you win over those skeptical fans of the original movies, and get them on board with the reboot? Well, a great start is to say it’s going to be R-rated, bloody, and use as little CGI as possible, as director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) said recently.

Movie Review: Baby Driver

Baby Driver Header

Baby Driver
Director: Edgar Wright
Screenwriters: Edgar Wright
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx
Distributor: TriStar Pictures
Rated PG| 113 Minutes
Release Date: June 28, 2017

Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver can be best described as a musically charged gangster film full of colorful zany characters all looking to make a big score. If Wright could write music – and he probably could – they would look, sound, and feel like this movie.

While recent car chasing heist flicks have been focusing on the big action set-piece spectacle that may look spectacular but lacks spirit and heart, Baby Driver proves that you don’t need to jump out of planes (be it exploding or not) to be hip and cool. You just need a driver, the girl of your dreams, music, and the road to travel to some unknown destination.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Spider-Man: Homecoming Starbucks Pranks

We’re just a little over a week from the launch of the first movie in Sony Pictures’ latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming, this time with a little help from Marvel.

To help promote the movie a fun little prank was set up, as is quite the popular viral marketing technique these days. For this one, customers at a Starbucks in New York City are first confused when the barista calls out Spider-Man’s name for an order, and then surprised when Spidey himself drops down from the ceiling to pick it up. There’s even a cameo from a familiar face.

Check out the video below.

Book Review: The Bones Of The Earth: A Bound Gods Novel By Rachel Dunne

The Bones Of The Earth
A Bound Gods Novel (Book 2)
Paperback | Kindle
By Rachel Dunne
Harper Voyager
Release Date: June 27, 2017

It’s been almost exactly a year since I wrote a review extolling the virtues of Rachel Dunne‘s debut novel In The Shadow Of The Gods. I heaped praise upon it for the beautiful setting and extensive world building that she had created. It is therefore safe to assume that I was not at all hesitant to dive into the sequel so as to write a review prior to the release. Unfortunately, my expectations were set too high it seems. The Bones Of The Earth was not at all what I expected.

Read on to find out more.
