The Duality of DC: Or Why Marvel Films Will Always Be Better Than DC Films

I went on a tweeting rampage recently (rampage is defined here as a flurry of posts on one subject) about the duality of the two most popular DC Comics characters after being asked which I liked better Marvel or DC.

    Could Superman’s Powers Actually Be Possible?

Okay, so this is essentially pseudo-science, but it’s fun to imagine the possibilities, right? For so long, the tale of a super human being with the ability to fly has been one kept on the pages of comic books and sometimes on the silver screen; an excellent example of…

    G1954Many film enthusiasts can name handfuls of their favorite films, but to name an absolute number one favorite is extremely difficult; some consider Citizen Kane, others are for The Dark Knight, and a few are taken with Troll II, funnily enough. As for me, I have no greater love…
