Suicide Squad

Big Blockbuster Boredom

In the latter days of 2015, I remember looking at the list of movies coming out in 2016 and thinking, “next year is going to be an amazing year for movies.  There is so much good stuff coming out.”  Now, here it is, the middle of August in 2016, and I find myself wondering what happened to all those movies I was excited about?  Did I kid myself into thinking there was a ton of great movies coming out?  I don’t think I was fooling myself, I seem to recall actually believing that this year would be full of nonstop excitement when looking ahead to the crop of blockbusters coming out this year.  And yet, here I am, just over halfway through the year in the aftermath of the summer movie season, feeling somewhat let down and disappointed overall.  It’s not that the movies this year were bad per se, with one or two exceptions, rather, it is that most of the movies this year turned out to be just…..average, pedestrian, formulaic, uninspired, etc.

Let’s take a look back at the once promising list and see if we can figure out just where things went wrong. More

Now Geek This On The San Diego Comic-Con

nowgeekthisIn this edition of Now Geek This, I will be discussing some of my favorite things that came out of the biggest geek event of the whole year, this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, aka SDCC.  Of course, I must first state for the record that I was not able to attend this year’s SDCC, in fact, I have never been to an SDCC as of yet, so I am forced to eat up the bread crumbs that are put out online just as most of you are forced to do.  Having said that, I will now discuss the things I caught that excited me the most.
