Read my review of THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES, Jon Schnepp's new documentary about one of the most famous superhero movies that never got made!

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/05/02/review-the-death-of-superman-lives-proves-nicolas-cage-could-fly/
VideoThis weekend, a superhero film hits theaters that is a must-see for fans. It's full of great characters, has many big surprises and twists, includes amazing sets and costumes, and is wildly entertaining. No, not the latest Avengers movie -- although, as my review of that film makes clear, you [...]

Read my review with EX MACHINA's writer-director! It's a fascinating discussion...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2015/04/25/ex-machina-director-talks-gender-nazis-and-collaborative-filmmaking/
One of the year's best films, the sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, expands into wide release Friday, after a limited run in less than 40 domestic theaters during which it took impressive per-screen hauls and racked up $8 million worldwide heading into the weekend. Early Friday box office figures show the [...]

VideoIt is not often that a film comes along which not only subverts genre expectations, but in fact uses that subversion of expectations to create a disconnect between how we traditionally perceive the themes and moral imperatives inherent in the genre and what we are experiencing in the film itself.

To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this movie, but your review shows how important it is not to judge a movie before giving it an honest chance to exceed your initial expectations.  Your unique perspective of having dealt with the effects of terminal illness in your own life gives your review even more meaning.  (If more people were willing to give of themselves as you have, imagine where we would be...)  Excellent review as always, Mark!  You are clearly not just another pretty face.  ;)

Great article. I think DC stories have more of showing how heroes deal with human struggle and emotion . We see a lot of trauma and cruelty in heroes past. Also, im guessing that it wasnt batman saying "Do you bleed." The villain in the movie will be bigger than Lex or teamed with Lex. And the fight scene at the end of this trailer is almost happening halfway through the film.
