Caught In The Middle: An “X-Men:First Class” Review

June 11, 2011

One would assume that since MARVEL now has the power to make their own films they’d be able to make flawless comic book movies.  Not so.  Many would simply forget about the Fantastic Four flub, Ghost Rider‘s gaffe, and Electra‘s err…not me.  A good handful of spot on renditions have come to the screen to prove that it can be done correctly.  It just sucks when someone only goes half way.  I just didn’t think the people behind X-Men:  First Class would be in that category.

“THOR”: Norse Gods And A Demented Defender

May 7, 2011

I know what you’re thinking.  “This guy has problems.”  Well, if by problems you mean a strong desire to be awesome, then you’re correct.  Not many people have the balls to fully embrace something they love to the extent that I do, and that’s a shame.  Why wouldn’t you want to absorb might, strength, and power into your daily lives?  The Norsemen had the right idea, so grow a pair and live life the Viking way!  MARVEL studios has been doing just that, and THOR is all the proof you need.

Volstagg: The Not-Quite-Voluminous

March 17, 2011

“DAMN THEE, DIET!”

There is much excitement in the nerd community surrounding the new THOR movie that’s due out soon.  As awesome as the trailer is, a “small” problem has been brought to my attention.  Turns out the portly powerhouse Volstagg has been poorly cast.  I know, I know.  How hard could it be to cast a large and in-charge warrior from the halls of Asgard?  Harder than you’d think, apparently.

“X-Men: First Class” Trailer

February 14, 2011

Is it possible that someone has actually made an X-Men movie the right way?  This looks quite good.  But I thought that same thing about the Wolverine film.  Fingers, start your crossing.


Trailer For “Captain America: The First Avenger”

February 8, 2011

Damn.  I have to admit, this looks quite awesome.  The thought of The Human Torch being cast as ole Cap had me quite mad.  But after seeing this, I think I’ll be okay with it.


“The Dark Knight Rises” Gets A Sexy Cat And A Major Juice-Head

January 19, 2011

MEOW!

After countless rumors flying around the web concerning who will be the villains in Chris Nolan’s upcoming Batman movie, Yahoo has announced that Oh Mars‘ second wife Anne Hathaway will be dawning the leather as Catwoman and Tom Hardy (of Nolan’s Inception) will test out his pipes as Bane.

He’s Spidey Spidey, And He’s Mighty Mighty!

January 17, 2011

Dear MARVEL:  Over the years you’ve created some rather awesome superheroes with quite rad powers.  However, there’s a rather huge problem that needs a fixin’.  This whole giving a face-lift to movies you’ve already made thing needs to stop.  I’m sure Andrew Garfield will make a great Peter Parker, but it’s going to take a lot for you to usurp Tobey Maguire.  Just sayin’.
