If you are a major DC comics fan, liked this film, or haven’t in fact seen it yet, stop reading now. There will be spoilers, there will be rants and there will be very little nice things said about it. Believe the critics people, they’re nearly unanimously right this time; BvS is pretty bad – or at least it does a lot of things badly – and I’ll do my best to explain that vague sentence a little better below.
Maybe it’s just me, but there was a time where it felt like this film lived on RTE. Or maybe I just gave up on trying to find things to watch and repeatedly popped in our VHS copy. Either way, we’re onto an absolute childhood favourite of mine here and one which I probably shouldn’t have even been watching as a child (like most of them!)

Ok so maybe this isn’t one of those “best films you’ve never seen” types but for the purpose of this piece I’ve not once seen it recommended on my Netflix home screen so that’s enough. Ronin is a relic of days gone by, pre-excessive CGI, when action flicks rested their success heavily on some script smarts and the ensemble cast such as what you see here.

Better Call Saul S01E07 – “Bingo”
It can’t be said that BCS has stuttered with this week’s seventh episode but it is more than accurate to say that this was the quiet beginnings of the path to Saul. Jimmy was so close, ready to move out of the salon and into a swanky office of his own, which he was hoping wouldn’t hurt his chances with Kim too of course. This is likely the last time we will see Jimmy get this close to real, legit success and it was handled in a surprisingly tragic manner. With Jimmy’s quiet moment in the final scene of the episode we saw a similar “lowest ebb” from him as we did from Mike last week. With both characters reaching their lowest, may we get nothing but climbs from now on? Climbs that find them both settle comfortably in the middle tier of course.

Trapped under a rock and unable to reach your smartphone? Abducted by aliens who are allergic to laptops? Whatever the reason may be we’re here to help. Here’s a roundup of what I’m Talkin’ Here had to say this week:
We’re a hypocritical bunch, we humans. Death is a daily occurrence in our society yet only the deaths of those in the spotlight cause us to leap to social media to share our grief, even though the common man or woman who passes away is far more in need of our publicity. Yet every so often, an exception to this occurs. For me it was the deaths of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Clarence Clemens, two occasions where I felt wholly justified in expressing my grief publically. This week, I can sadly ad Robin Williams to that list. Continue reading Robin Williams – The Clown That Cried
