Let’s Put A Smile On That Face.

I got a large envelope in the mail the other day.

Inside were a poster for The Dark Knight and two passes to an advance screening.

Sometimes, the world smiles upon me.

X-Men 3: The Last Straw

May 27, 2006

It says something when my favorite part of seeing X-Men 3 is the Snakes On A Plane trailer.

Caught a press screening of Slither Thursday night.  Very witty and a lot of fun.  The movie’s very much in the vein of Tremors.  And it’s got Nathan Fillion, so really, you can’t go wrong.

I went to see Night Watch a week or so back, which was also very good.  It’s a sort of dark fantasy with a modern setting.  It’s also the first of a trilogy.  Hopefully the other two films will make it over here.

I’m fairly certain this proves there is no god.

“Come, Son Of Jor-El, Kneel Before Zod!”

Superman Returns teaser.

I’m still hesitant about this.

Take Me Out Into The Black

October 1, 2005

I saw Serenity last night.  No, I’m not going to say anything about the plot.  I will say this, I was in tears at several points.  Wonderful film.

That Was A Disney Movie?

November 7, 2004

Nah, just made with Mouse Money.  Pixar‘s latest release, The Incredibles, wasn’t as good as I was expecting.   Maybe I’m just jaded. At least, as far as superheroes are concerned.  I mean, I’ve seen some of the best (not to mention the worst– Rob Liefeld, I’m looking at you!) comics have to offer.  It’s not as if the movie’s doing anything new.  Alan Moore did a very similar story, albeit much darker with Marvelman (Miracleman, in the States).  There’s a lot of elements of The Last Days of the JSA in there as well.  A lot of influence from the Doom Patrol (mostly stealing borrowing Elasti-Girl‘s name) as well.   Okay, I’m getting geeky and critical.  I’m stopping.

Okay, previews: Nothing too exciting.  New Star Wars.  Seriously?  “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” popped up on the screen and I overheard someone crack: “Wait, before George Lucas sucked?”  Something called Polar Express too. Doesn’t look very promising to me.  And I love Tom Hanks.  Okay, Tom Hanks without Meg Ryan.

Today someone told me their favorite movie was Van Helsing.

I’m serious.

I Was Right, Damnit!

Catwoman is Batman and Robin all over again, enthusiastically crapping over all the well-documented success of ‘serious’ comic book movies, and heading full steam into camp again, where nothing ever gets accomplished. It’s Showgirls for the PS2 crowd.”
