If you have been keeping track of the drama coming out of Warner Brothers about their stand alone Batman film you know that the project has been a disaster. As of this week an announcement was released that Ben Affleck would be stepping down from his position as director of the film. This was on the heels of reported problems with the film’s script as well as speculation that executives at Warner Brothers were not seeing eye to eye with Affleck. The script was penned by both Affleck and Geoff Johns. However that script was then rewritten by Chris Terrio, whose Argo screenplay won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. Things seem bad enough yet? Well there’s more. Continue reading “The Warner Brothers’ “The Batman” Now Undergoing Page One Rewrite”
This is how my review system works. I’ve broken down my review into 4 different categories (Directing, Acting, Story, Entertainment Value). I’ll give a score out of 5 for each category. At the end I’ll average the scores to come up with an overall score for the film.

The Accountant is a Warner Bros. action/crime drama directed by Gavin O’Connor and stars the many talents of Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow. The story revolves around Affleck’s character who works as a CPA accountant as a front to cover his activities as an accountant for some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. When he takes on a legitimate client, and begins uncooks the books, the body count rises as he gets closer to the truth.
So who remembers when Ben Affleck being cast as Batman in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was on of the most controversial topics being discussed during that time. Funny how now that the movie as been out the “Batfleck” has gone on to be the only unanimously praised aspect about the film. Now Affleck has been chosen by Warner Bros. to write, direct, and star in the next Batman solo film.
Since the announcement fans have been wondering which classic Batman comic book storyline Affleck will adapt for his solo script. And it looks like we may now know the answer to that question – none of them, at least not verbatim. Continue reading “Ben Affleck Adapting Original Story For ‘Batman’ Film”
The Accountant is a movie that seems to have completely flown under my radar. Seeing as the movie seems to have a Jason Bourne type of feel to it, I’m going to cut myself a break.
Check out the trailer here.
“Worst. Heroes. Ever.” At least that what director, David Ayer, said when he took to his Twitter page today to give us a look at some new Suicide Squad posters as well as to announce the date of a new Trailer!
David Ayer’s post includes a picture of the new poster with skulls representing each member of the Suicide Squad. Along with Ayer’s announcement, actors Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Adam Beach (Slipknot), and Karen Fukuhara (Katana) all tweeted out with the same written content as Ayer, “Worst. Heroes. Ever. #SuicideSquad trailer drops Tuesday night in the DC Films Special! 9:30/8:30c on The CW!” – only difference is that they had posters with their individual characters on them.
