Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  June 10th brings three new heavyweights to the party guaranteeing that at least one of them will bomb and that the Turtles reign atop the box office will be very short.  The Conjuring 2 has the reviews, though lower that the original, while Now You See Me: The Second Act and Warcraft…..do not.  Still, it’s a diverse group if you have cabin fever and want to get out there.

Movie Review: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) *So THAT Just Happened…..* MAJOR SPOILER WARNING

Superman, Henry Cavill, Clark Kent, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne, Ben Affleck, BatmanLet’s get this out of the way in case you haven’t seen the film: IT. IS. NOT. GOOD.  We’re also going to talk about spoilers after the jump because I don’t respect this film enough to wait any longer to do so.  All on the same page?  Excellent, here’s the nutshell review.  Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is an incoherent series of what should be cool events were they bound together by any narrative whatsoever.

Batman, Bruce Wayne, Ben Affleck, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

It’s poorly directed, bafflingly edited, disappointingly scored (thanks, Hans Zimmer, for phoning in your HALF of the score, you being so busy polishing the masterpiece that was your work in Kung Fu Panda 3) and marred by a performance so bad that it should end that Oscar-nominated actor’s career (looking at you, Eisenberg).  However, it is NOT Batman & Robin, Elektra or Fantastic Four.  This is not one of the worst movies in the history of cinema.  It only feels like it because buried in all of this is something that should have given fans a film for the ages.  It’s the dichotomy between what should have been and what ended up (sorta) happening that makes this so bad.  Spoiler-free portion over, kiddies, jump out of the boat or continue down the chocolate river!

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  March 25th has really only two choices, and sadly, I’m not sure which is the lesser evil.
