Remote Viewing Podcast: Episode #94

It’s time we talked about all the versering that’s happening between super powered beings in the movies! Tristan, Brett, and Elroy turn their nerd up to eleven in this episode and, with only a couple of deviations, they spend the whole time flipping between their thoughts on Superman vs Batman and the One-half-of-the-MCU vs The-other-half-of-the-MCU […]

Hulk: More Cross Overing?

Something that I’ve harped on about for a while now is the fact that Marvel has taken control over the way that their intellectual property is adapted to film (particularly since the five and a quarter million dollar credit arrangement was secured between Marvel Studios and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.), and how this will […]

Avengers?: Iron Man, Fury and the Hulk

Anyone who has spent any length of time follow my inarticulate ramblings here on elroyonline can probably tell you that my biggest issue with movie adaptations of comic-books is the fact that they constantly deviate from the established origin of a character or a landmark event in comic lore. Most recently my focus was on […]

Superheroes: Who’s Fantastic?

While watching Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer the other day it was finally solidified for me why it is that I find that particular team of Superheroes so… well, lame. It’s their powers! With the exception of Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) the others are hardly capable of standing on their own. Now, […]

Silver Surfer: Awe That’s cool!

With all the Christmas hub-bub and the clocking up of kilometres, visiting the family, going on lately I’ve barely had a chance to keep up with the stuff that really matters… Sci-fi movie news. But, to be honest, it hasn’t all been silly season doom and gloom, while I was off in the country visiting […]

Aquaman: Failing Upwards

You know that guy with whom you work, who never actually appears to be doing anything and yet still somehow gets handed all the cool projects and promotions? And even when he stuffs them up, which he invariably will, he still seems to come out on top… Well, I can’t help thinking that, like that […]

Box Office: Supes vs Spidey Round 2

The last time I posted about the Spider-Man box office results compared to the Superman Returns figures I asked the question “how, in any way shape or form, does Spiderman beat Superman?”. The answer, at the time, was tentatively, “At the Box Office!”… Well, it seems that the point is being brought home in a […]

Box Office: Supes vs Spidey

In typical ‘God hates elroy’ style I was stuck in meetings all day yesterday, so I didn’t get a chance to slip into my blue and red pajamas and hit the cinema to see Superman Returns. My absence doesn’t seem to have hurt the box office numbers for the man of steal’s opening day, which […]

Fun, Yes – Fantastic, No.

So. I’m standing there.. It’s 9:30 am and I’m about to buy a ticket to see Fantastic Four. Why 9:30 am? I’ve got two words for you… “School” and “Holidays” – The fact is, I’m totally expecting this movie to bite. I’m really not “9:30 am” kind of keen to see it, I just don’t […]

Spider-Man 2: The gooder!

I didn’t hold the first Spider-Man movie in as high a regard as it seems everyone else did – Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t dislike it, I just thought that (of the franchise super-hero movies) Spider-man 1 [S1] was a little bit ‘bubble gum’ when compared to the likes of the X-Men. For me […]
