Improvements I’ve been wanting to make to this website for a while have finally come. I’ll offer notes on them once the RSS feed is set up. I hope you like them.
No Film of the Week this time, but this week does bring two comic book movies. Batman v Superman is the one you all know about. The other one is April and the Extraordinary World, an animated film based on a comic book by Jacques Tardi, who’s been called France’s greatest living cartoonist.
