Marshall Fine | Posted 07.16.2015 | Entertainment

I believe comic-book movies -- and the overweening Comic-Con mentality that has consumed the Hollywood studios -- are strangling the movie industry, in part because these movies are so generic. Which may be why I enjoyed Ant-Man so much.

For what's turned out to be one of the biggest hits of all-time, the not especially felicitously titled Avengers: Age of Ultron has gotten a lot less love and devotion than the numbers would suggest.

I'm not a big fan of libertarians or libertarian Republicans, but Kentucky Senator Rand Paul deserves tremendous credit for his brinksmanship on the Patriot Act in forcing the U.S. Senate leadership to bend on the issue of the federal government's massive, once very secret, monitoring of our private communications.

Ironman/Tony Stark: He's the guy everyone calls on in a pinch -- and he'll always come to the rescue, but he wants the glory for doing it, and he has no intention of sharing the spotlight. It's his way or the highway, and you're never going to mean more to him than his favorite suit.

Dwight Brown

They're back. The chummy Marvel superheroes assemble once again to fight evil. In this case it's Ultron, a vicious technological villain hell-bent on ridding earth of human life. There is little in this film that is new, but that doesn't matter. The characters are still entertaining.

The film takes a performance by the impossibly charismatic James Spader, and purposes it in service of an impossibly dull CGI automaton. It's a bit perplexing that Ultron manages to get so much right except for the very villain whose name is in the title.

The Cultural Revolution days of an autarkic closed information loop when the Communist Party could dictate a narrative for an isolated and impoverished society are over for China. To believe otherwise is to undermine the very links to the rest of the world that have enabled China to become the ever-more prospering world power it is today.

Today we think of the 1970s as the heyday of the conspiracy thriller, but the reality is that the conspiracy genre flourished a decade earlier, before most of the disillusionment. And it did so in large part at the encouragement of none other than the President of the United States.

Whether all these figures are anti-heroes, or in some cases something else entirely, is an interesting question. As is the question of why anti-heroes are so important in quality television. Short form answer is that they match the times. It's a mostly cynical and sour era, with little faith in institutions or, generally speaking, leaders.

Captain Conservative here. By day, I'm a mild mannered cable TV reporter for Fox News. By night, I'm a masked vigilante fighting for truth, justice, and traditional family values. And my bionic eyes don't like what they see going on in the Marvel Universe.
