“Batman v Superman”: It’s hero vs. hero, but the audience loses

This film is the cinematic equivalent of a child slamming two plastic toy dinosaurs into one another.

"Heroes Reborn" is satisfying sequel to original series

This show has something to prove, to viewers and critics, but it looks like great things are coming.

"Ant-Man" is fun, but never thinks big

The movie is a decent enough popcorn flick, but its narrative weaknesses and hit-or-miss jokes don't help it much.
