DVDCorner’s Ranking Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-rayCaptain America- The First Avenger Thor Blu-ray

With “Captain America: Civil War” a few days away (hallelujah!), I’ve been in a total Marvel mood these past few weeks. In fact, I have gone back and rewatched every single Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film. To my surprise, some films improved with a rewatch, some films did not, while others remained great. Anyway, enough of my rambling, on with the list! Continue reading

Top 10 Comic Book Movies

Instead of reviewing a DVD or Blu-ray today, I thought I’d mix things up a bit and do another top 10 list. As you may have gathered over the years, I love making lists.

No more, no less. Continue reading

Argo       Game Of Thrones        ParaNorman      Sherlock

The Best And Worst Films And TV Shows Of 2012

While some film fans and film critics adored 2012, I felt the year was largely comprised of bloated blockbusters and underwhelming art films. To me, a majority of the films (while often well made) felt distant and never really connected with me personally. Last year, I was overwhelmed with profoundly moving films such as “Moneyball,” “50/50,” “Hugo,” and “Midnight in Paris.” Now, that’s not to say 2012 didn’t have its highlights because it did.
