In a recent interview with the LA Times, Zack Snyder talked the sequel to Man of Steel: Batman vs. Superman (still the working title), which is scheduled to begin production next month. He gives some interesting bits and insight on where they are right now. I still expect a Dick Grayson casting announcement sometime soon to add to the mix. My primary concern with this film is overcrowding leading to a lack of character development in exchange for spectacle. I was extremely happy with where Man of Steel left the audience and I hope the development of Clark and this new Superman doesn’t get lost in the plot. Continue reading
If you didn’t know (then clearly you’re not reading the site so….bad, you), Netflix has all six seasons of Star Wars Clone Wars up for your binge viewing delight. Included in that are the so-called “Lost Missions” which is essentially season six of the show that was cancelled to move the timeline on to Star Wars: Rebels. I haven’t seen anything yet. I’m not gonna spoil….but has Mark Hamill done anything in the Star Wars Universe since 1983? Just an idle question…
Sin City is something I just haven’t been able to get into. I’ve tried to watch the film a few times and it’s gorgeous, but I just….I don’t know. It doesn’t resonate with me. Given that Frank Miller has sold a gajillion graphic novels of it and the first film was a cult hit, I know many of you feel differently so here is the first look at the sequel which will hit theaters on August 22, 2014.
”Whoever invented “spring forward” as a time keeping concept should be shot. You owe me a couple dozen hours.”
This week I have to be honest, I did very little media consumption. I’ve been feeling under the weather and not in a curl up with a book kind of way. It’s more of a stare blankly at the ceiling and stare at the clock counting down to the next Nyquil dose sort of thing. For that reason, though I have it drafted, I’m going to delay Gary Oldman’s latest vs. greatest until next week. I’m trying to figure out who is following him but some candidates are Anthony Hopkins, Charlize Theron, Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. If you want to vote in the comments, feel free. Continue reading
I cannot believe they managed to get me out to the theater to see a RoboCop movie. Now, in all fairness, Gary Oldman is our next profile and I needed to see RoboCop to complete my research (it’s pretty cool telling your wife you HAVE to go to RoboCop because it’s research). Beyond that, ever since the images and marketing for this film started appearing last year, I wanted to see it. RoboCop has always been a character I thought was awesome without any reason for me to think that. He has no defining storyline in comics or film (I’m not a huge fan of the Weller films), but daggone it he looks freaking awesome. There’s something about it, especially the new black suit, that just makes my inner 8-year-old snort a Pixie Stick and run around screaming. So did it live up to my brain sugar-drenched hopes and dreams? No,but there are reasons to not dismiss it. But first: Samuel L. Jackson with white-man hair:
