This is the place where I discuss all things Sacred and Profane. Stop by and check me out. Leave a comment (or not), as this is done for my own amusement. If you too are entertained, all the better, but that is not the motivation here. For I, am a...Writer with attitude! Comics, Sci Fi, movies, TV, Books, the Internet, Pop Culture, you name it. I talk about all of these things and more. These are the things that entertain me. I can only hope that some of them will entertain you as well.

Batman V Superman: a different (Humorous) view
OK kids, I already posted my review of Batman V Superman (over here) but apparently I wasn't the only one who weighed in on this film (go figure). One of the people who reviewed the film was Peter K. Rosenthal from the satirical website, The Onion.

Director Snyder didn't understand the technical differences between the two uses, or
So, yeah, that is actually pretty funny, but then again, so are these two cartoons dealing with the difference between DC and Marvel comicbook fans when movies about their chosen heroes hit the Silver Screen.
