Spider-Man 4: Who is Mary-Jane?

MTV News got the scoop on trying to find out whether Kirsten Dunst will be playing MJ in the next Spider-Man film.

"For quite some time now, 'Spider-Man' star Kirsten Dunst has had one major condition as to whether or not she’d sign-up for any future sequels of the franchise — that director Sam Raimi and co-star Tobey Maguire be signed on as well.
Well, now that the news has broken that both Raimi and Maguire have signed back on for a fourth and fifth installment – with a hefty paycheck attached as well — MTV News posed the big question to Dunst while she was promoting her upcoming film, “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” with Simon Pegg. Is she in or is she out?
“I’m in,” said the actress matter of factly. However, when pressed to make the announcement official, Dunst quickly changed her tone, and rather cryptically added, “I’m not saying anything, I know there’s rumors…”

More to come! Catch ya' later!

Will this be in Spider-Man 4?

Green Lantern starts filming Spring of 2009

Producer of the upcoming Green Lantern film, Donald De Line, said, "a new draft of the script came in" and they're "gearing up to start shooting early spring."

Sounds like the movie is finally getting ready for take-off. From one of my earlier posts there was a review of the script which looked to stay true to the comics.

More news on Green Lantern to come! Catch ya' later!

Hal Jordan, the most famous Green Lantern.

New Spirit Trailer

The Spirit gets a new trailer.
I must say this movie is starting to look pretty ridiculous.

"I'm gonna kill you all kinds of dead."

Disney plans out its next big hits

The Lone Ranger will be hitting theaters within the next two years. Anybody in the mood for a western? Rumors abound about who will play the Long Ranger and his sidekick Tonto (might be fact that Johnny Depp will play Tonto).

Pirates of the Caribbean 4 has been mentioned by Disney again....but still no real news on it.

National Treasure 3 is in the works and Nicholas Cage has signed back on.

Johnny Depp shall play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. This won't be like the same Disney tale we are all used to.

Wild Hogs 2 will come out with all four of the same actors: John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen, and William H. Macy.

Pixar has announced they will be making a Cars 2, which will take place around the world.

EDIT: Johnny Depp has signed on to return has Jack Sparrow in POTC 4!
George Clooney is interested to play the Lone Ranger!

You happy to see me again?

Superman and Batman

The Dark Knight did amazingly well in Box Office (check out one of my earlier posts about that) but Superman Returns didn't do as well. Yes, it did kind of well...but...it's Superman!
James Marsden, who played Richard White in the latest Superman film (and Cyclops in X-men), explains why it didn't do so well, according to MTV News.
“One of my favorite films growing up was the Christopher Reeve Superman. Obviously, it was Bryan Singer’s as well. He had great affection for Richard Donner’s movie. [Given 'Returns' debt to that classic film] I was actually baffled by [the fact that it didn’t do that well]. The movie did okay. It did well, but it’s Superman. This is the ultimate superhero."

So how will Warner Bros. turn Superman around? By making him even darker, Warner Bros. Pictures Group President Jeff Robinov said.
"Superman didn't quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to," Robinov said of Singer's movie, which made just $215 million domestically. "It didn't position the character the way he needed to be positioned," he continued. "Had 'Superman' worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009, but now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman. We're going to try to go dark to the extent that the character allows it."

Can't wait to get more news on the next Super man movie titled Man of Steel (not slated for release until 2011). Other than that, The Dark Knight is slated for a DVD release on Dec. 9.
Also...what is in store for Batman 3?

Prince of Persia

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the upcoming Prince of Persia movie. It is based upon the best-selling game Prince of Persia: Sands of Time made by Ubisoft.
The movie is slated to come out in 2010. The movie is a joint effort by Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films.
Filming began on Sept. 16.
The film was originally supposed to come out the week after Transformers 2 in June 2009, but with fear of not getting good business, the movie was pushed to 2010. It will come out the week in-between when Shrek 4 comes out and when Thor hits theaters.
Jerry Bruckheimer is working on this film while also working on other ones such as Pirates of the Caribbean 4 (not yet confirmed to have continuity with the others) and National Treasure 3.

Jake Gyllenhaal dressed as the prince from the new movie Prince of Persia.

I Am Legend Prequel

I Am Legend is getting a prequel with Will Smith reprising his role as the scientist Robert Neville.

According to Latino Review, "The prequel will chronicle the final days of humanity in New York before a man-made virus caused a plague that left Smith’s character the lone survivor among a mutated mob in the city."

I am Legend did well in the Box Office, grossing over $500 million. To continue the franchise only a prequel would have worked since something happen to Smith's character in the first movie (trying not to spoil here).

More news about when this film will come out later!

The story of how the world became like this will be told in a new I Am Legend movie.

Max Payne

Director John Moore is pissed. He wanted Max Payne to be PG-13, which is a more profitable rating for a film (such as Dark Knight). The MPAA has given Max Payne a rating of R, and that did not make Mr. Moore happy at all.
According to the Hollywood News, this is his rant.

“The Motion Picture Association of America gave THE DARK KNIGHT a PG-13 rating and basically sucked Warner Bros.’ c*ck. The MPAA will never publish the rules. They’ll never tell a director, Here’s what’s going to get you an R, Here’s what’s going to get you a PG-13. People might think that’s impossible, but let me tell you, if I’m making a TV beer commercial, I know exactly what the rules are. The MPAA changes their rules willy-nilly and it depends on who’s seeing your actual movie at the time. It’s very difficult to get a hold on what’s acceptable. The only thing you can use is current standards. So I go and see The Dark Knight and I say, “Gee, that’s pretty gnarly for PG-13,” but I felt good about Max Payne after coming out of the theater. I thought Max wasn’t going to have a problem. And that’s not the case."

The rating may indeed hurt the film's box office profits, but my once dashed hopes for this film have risen since I saw the beginning of it. Watch and see for yourselves.

Green Lantern

Green Lantern is another DC comic slated to hit the big screen in the next two to three years and some plot points of the script has been released.
Latino Review got the scoop!

"There is some very excellent craft in THE GREEN LANTERN. The 3 writers clearly have writing chops, which is expected from writers who work under tight deadlines in television. The structure adheres closely to what I call – the “superhero origin movie paradigm.” Our hero, in this case Hal Jordan has a fear, limitation, block, or wound at the beginning of the story which he has to overcome (his character arc) or have some control by the midpoint of the script which is usually the time he becomes the superhero for the first time ie: BATMAN BEGINS. In GREEN LANTERN’s case, Hal Jordan has to overcome his selfishness and self pity over the death of his father Martin Jordan which takes place early in the script. Hal Jordan for the first 20 pages or so is a prick. The story follows the GREEN LANTERN origin closely and cinematically speaking – IT WORKS.

In a nutshell, ABIN SUR’s ship crash lands in the desert on Gaia aka Earth after his fight with LEGION in space. LEGION got a serious beef with the Green Lantern Corps and hunts them. Abin incurs some injuries with Legion which prove to be fatal. Legion is the biggest menace to the Green Lantern Corps and has already killed three of them. With his dying breath, Abin asks the ring to pick someone honest, someone brave. The ring passes Clark Kent and Guy Gardner and selects Hal Jordan."

Will GL be a hit? Sounds good so far, but we will have to wait another year for more information.
Catch ya' later!

The Die Hard Legacy

Die Hard is a series of films about an officer named John McClane and his heroics.
What made these films define heroics and adventure was one man and his seemingly unstoppable nature. The four films shall be discussed so that you may know all about them.

Die Hard - Made in 1988 and became a major hit, the film centers on John McClane rescuing his wife and civilians from a supposed terrorist takeover of an office building. The story through the first half-hour is so dramatic that you can understand the characters problems immediately and then the plot takes off into the adventure. And Bruce Willis has never done a more tough role than as John McClane, and Alan Rickman (his first American role) plays the bad guy so well (as he does in many movies like Harry Potter). And you can't forget the famous quote that just had to be used in all four movies. Yippy-ki-yay motherf****er! 8.8/10

Die Hard 2: Die Harder - Some may say this 1990 sequel is a rehash taking rewards from the original film. Being a sequel, it had to have more fights, more action and more explosions. It is still good because it has a brand new story and brings back all the characters we love from the original. In this film John McClane must deal with mercenaries who take control of an airport's communications and threatens to cause planes to crash of their demands aren't met. Bruce Willis reprises his role and takes down the baddies as a one man commando. An entertaining sequel is you enjoyed the first one. 7.5/10

Die Hard: With a Vengeance - It was a 5-year wait for the next film, but it was worth it. This film brought back many of the story elements from the first film and introduced a new character that lent McClane some much needed help for his new adventure. Samuel L. Jackson played a shopkeeper who inadvertently ends up helping John McClane stop a madmen who is playing games to terrorize New York. With more twists than a twizzler this film has the greatest story thus far and will keep you entertained until the epic conclusion. On another note, Vengeance is sometimes said to be the fan favorite of the Die Hard films. 9/10

Live Free or Die Hard - Many fans thought Die Hard was gone, but in 2007 the 4th installment of the series came out picking up many years from the last. McClane is now an older man but still retains his toughness, if not even having more. Now he must deal with an Internet terrorist organization that is slowly shutting down all the technology in the United States. With the fate of the country at stake the fights are tougher and the explosions are bigger. The only difference that die hard Die Hard fans will notice is that this film is PG-13 while the past three have been R. Still, this film is a worthy addition to the Die Hard series and is a good action flick all around. 8/10

Catch ya' later!

Spider-Man 4 & 5

Sony has announced that Spider-Man 4 & 5 will be shot back-to-back.
It has also announced that Tobey Maguire will return as Spider-Man, but he shall be allowed time to leave from the 6-month shoot to visit his family ( he has a 22-month-old daughter).
What makes me wonder if they should have a new actor play Spidey is that Maguire is 33 and he is playing a character in his 20's. If he stays with Sony on the deal and does 4 & 5, they will most likely be his last.
No news about Kirsten Dunst being Mary-Jane or who will play her at all.
No news on any new villains (except for the Mysterio rumors) but there is talk about a spin-off film dealing with Venom.
More news to come folks. Catch ya' later!

Where's my movie?

The Spirit

Coming out during Christmas time is another comic-based movie, but this time it is directed by Frank Miller, the comic genius behind 300, Sin City, and most of Daredevil.
The Spirit is about a rookie cop named Denny Colt who returns from the dead as The Spirit, a hero who fights the forces of evil in his city. And if you haven't heard, he loves the ladies and the ladies love him.
Filmed in the same style as Sin City, the film is very eye-catching, but can it catch the attention of audiences this December? I think it has a very good chance.

And you can't forget about Samuel L. Jackson in there. No you can't.

Some news about this week

Out in theaters this Friday are a couple of movies.

Choke - A movie based on a book by Chuck Palahniuk, same guy who wrote Fight Club. It is about a sex-addicted man who needs to pay his mother's hospital bills, so he uses the sympathy of those who rescue him from choking to death.

Eagle Eye - Brought to you by the same director of Disturbia, Shia is back and ready for action. The film is about two strangers who are pawns of a mysterious woman who knows their every move and uses them to further her plot of political assassination.

Nights in Rodanthe - Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook) this film is about a man who travels to see his son meets an unhappily married woman and the sparks fly.

New movies out on DVD!

The Godafather: The Coppoola Restoration Giftset - The Godfather Trilogy returns as a complete set, this time with the director's seal of approval. Might be pricey though...over $60...

Leatherheads - The love story set in the 1920's come to DVD. Oh yeah, and there is old school football.

Sex and the City - The DVD of the Fab Four comes out with an extended edition of the movie. This is really the first of the summer movies I reviewed to come out on DVD. Must be a reason behind all that...

Catch ya' later!

The Earth Will Stand Still 12/12/08

The Day the Earth Stood Still remake is due to come out in December.
I must say it does look interesting.
Here is a 7 minute clip that was shown before FOX's Fringe aired (I hear it is a good show too, check out my blog links to learn more about television shows).

Who Watches The Watchmen?

March 9, 2009. I am looking forward to this day.
I read V for Vendetta the comic and loved it. Then saw the movie and loved it. Allan Moore wrote many other comics that had stories that shook my mind and many others.
Watchmen is the best out of them all.
And Zack Snyder, the man who directed 300, another comic (written by another great writer Frank Miller) movie. And that film was voted the 'best use of money for a ticket.'
And here comes Watchmen. And I bet it is gonna kick Batman's armor bound rear! Sure, it may not make the profit that Dark Knight did, but we will see.

The story goes like this. (By Evan Murphy from an IMDB summary) "In a gritty and alternate 1985 the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of the masked veterans is brutally murdered an investigation into the killer is initiated. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot."
Sounds good? You know it does. More news to come!

"You know what I wish? I wish all the scum of the Earth had one throat and I had my hands about it."

Movie dates get changed...

Old news, but one I've wanted to discuss.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was supposed to come out in November, but last month Warner Bros. pushed it back to July of 2009. They are hoping to get the success of it being a summer film. And Twilight, a movie slated for December, is now coming out in November, hoping to take the dazzle that would have been Harry Potter.
I have no doubt both movies shall do well, I just wonder what fans would have liked more? Do more people want Twilight out in November or Harry Potter?
In the end, HP fans are going to have to wait an extra 8 months for their movie to come out. Hopefully Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows will be coming out right after that then. Part 1 I mean.

"What are you listening to?"

"Back off creep!"

"I don't know that song."

"No, get away from me."

Vegan Vamps don't dazzle!

The End Begins

He's back!
Summer of next year the 4th film in the Terminator series comes to theaters.
Terminator Salvation.
According to Warner Bros. Pictures, the film is "Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor (Bale) is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind. "
What is the secret? Is Ah-nald in the movie? Is this really the end?
More news shall be forthcoming, but the movie shall definitely be hard to learn about since the director wants to keep most of the film a secret.

"I knew it. I knew it was coming. And this is not the future my mother warned me about. And in this future, I don't know if we can win this war. This is John Connor."

Summer Movies of '08 that I forgot

More movies from the summer that I forgot to mention. Not because they weren't good. it is just that my memory falters sometimes.

You Don't Mess with the Zohan - Some may expect Adam Sandler to try different humor, but he sticks with what he is used to. A lot of physical humor and senselessness. Also, who doesn't love Nick Swardson, Roy Schnieder, and John Turturro (who have all been in previous Sandler movies like Anger Management, though John Turturro somehow showed up in Transformers...)? Zohan delas with the Israelis and Arabs a lot and just pokes fun at accents and shampoo. The movie is not meant to be taken seriously, folks. It is meant for you to sit back and laugh, albeit only a few times. In the end, it is worth at least one watching. 6.5/10

Kung Fu Panda - I have to say, I watched this movie twice. It was enjoyable, with great animation and lots of funny dialogue. Not seeing Jack Black actually works since I find his voice to be funnier than his facial expressions. The fight scenes are just amazing. You may be thinking Matrix when you see them, but since it is all CGI, the filmmakers could definitely bend their imagination into the fight scenes. The story is interesting, about Po, the panda, being the dragon warrior, the one to save them all. The movie will leave you wanting to see more action and more of Jack Black pretending to get beat up! 8.3/10 Skadoosh!

Hancock - I saw the trailer and couldn't wait to see this superhero movie. And watching it for the first hour, hour and a half, it is truly enjoyable. Good jokes with good effects and lots of pure fun. Then the story takes a nosedive into a totally different movie that loses the laughs and loses the plot. The characters change from what they were in the beginning to what they were in the end. It is a superhero movie with a villain tagged on as a last thought. In the end, not my favorite of the hero movies of the summer. 5.7/10

More movies will be on the way. I am trying to get other people involved in this as well. I am one person and cannot see every movie out there. There are also some movies I will not end up seeing because they don't...well....interest me. So people, if you have seen a movie and there is no review for it here, then I will be happy to put up Guest Reviews. It is time to get involved!

Some news about this week

Speed Racer will be coming out on DVD this Tuesday, as well as the 25th anniversary or Risky Business. Guess we can't get enough of Tom Cruise.
Movies coming out this Friday include Hounddog, a film with Dakota Fanning (girl from War of the Worlds) and she gets sexually abused. Isn't she like...14? Igor, a CGI movie for the little kiddies. And can't forget My Best Friend's Girl, the new moving with Dane Cook in it. Oh, we all love Dane Cook, except for the people who don't. He did his best!

I'm a cashew, let's do this!
(reference to a joke)

Dark Knight and Star Wars

I am actually a month behind in this news! Can't believe it!
But it is official that The Dark Knight is the second highest grossing film of all time. Number 1 is Titanic and Number 2 used to be Star Wars. That is right people, Dark Knight beat out the original Star Wars movie, which has been grossing money for the past 30 years.
As of August 18th 2008, TDK has grosses over $471.5 million! That is a lot of dough!
Star Wars, over the past 30 years has earned $461 million. The Force is strong in Batman....
Also, I forgot that Star Wars: Clone Wars was another summer movie I watched, so since I am on the subject of that franchise, I shall review it here.

Star Wars: Clone Wars - I am a huge Star Wars fan, so yes, this may be a bit biased. I love the story of Star Wars and love how it just goes on.....and on......and on.......and....you get my point. I really enjoy this thing about how Lucas wants to stick with the Clone Wars, but I am dying to know what happens after Revenge of the Sith and before A new Hope....or dare I even ask what happens after Return of the Jedi. Clone Wars is another installment to the Star Wars franchise, and it really doesn't add anything. You don't have to see it, but if you REALLY love Star Wars, then sure, see it. It just had cliched characters and lots of lame one-liners. Children will enjoy this movie even if they don't know what Star Wars is. As for the die-hard fans.....it is another bump in the road of Star Wars. Good shot though. 5.5/10 May the Force Be With You!

And for those of you who need more Star Wars. The movie is just a kicker for a television show that will air on Cartoon Network. The movie does not giver the viewer an ending, but just the beginning of the show. It airs 9 pm October 3rd. Enjoy!
And catch ya' later!

Iron Man trilogy already in works

Check out this article....check it out now.
After reading it, read this, because I am going in depth on what might happen.
So they are already deciding on what to do with Iron Man in the sequels. So this is awesome and cool. They want to have villains from the comics, like The Mandarin and The Crimson Dynamo, and have a long story that will connect Iron Man 2 and 3. And Jon Favreau ( directed Zathura, Elf, and played a role in the movie Daredevil) seems to really know his stuff about Marvel and how to connect the ideas to film. So once Captain America, Thor, and Giant Man/Wasp come out, the Avengers will be all rounded up and we will see what happens.
So while the Avengers films will be major hits, they won't be out for at least 6 more years, give or take when the entire cast is assembled.
Right now Iron Man 2 is scheduled to come out in a the summer of 2010, but the whole idea of the trilogy is out there. Terrence Howard (Rhodey in Iron Man) might be taking on the mantle of War Machine in the next movie. I see a spin-off...

November and December releases

Just throwing out some movies coming out in November and December that look of interest.
Do you know Jason Statham? Well you should. He is becoming a really great action flick guy. Transporter, Transporter 2, Crank, and Death Race he has all behind him. Now Crank 2 will be coming out next year and Transporter 3 comes out Nov. 26. And it is shaping up to be a pretty decent trilogy.
See the trailer here!
Other interesting films (in my opinion) coming out are Punisher: War Zone, Star Trek, and Twilight. Even though I am not really interested in Twilight, I know plenty of fangirls who are....
Watch the awesome Punisher trailer here! This is just the beginning...
So far the Star Trek film is being kept under wraps, but the teaser is here! Space, the final frontier...
Eh...here is Twilight trailer......right here. I still think vampires are cool though.
I will need to figure out how to make the videos actually be here instead of making them links. Still working on things! But....getting there....woo!
Will also be looking up more awesome films for the rest of 2008!
Catch ya' later!

Yes, yes....Frank Castle is very, very, very BA.

Dragon Ball

What can I say about this upcoming movie besides that my hopes aren't too high.
Look, I freaking love Dragon Ball Z. Was and still is my favorite anime.
And I know the movie is supposed to take place in our world, but the anime and manga doesn't....so why change that? I mean, James Wong is a decent director (he directed Final Destination 3) and the film is being produced by one of my favs, Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle anyone?).
I have seen many pics, like those of Justin Chatwin as Goku (he was the kid in War of the Worlds) and Emmy Rossum as Bulma (Christine from Phantom of the opera).
The trailer comes out when Max Payne comes out, another movie my hopes aren't too high for, yet I will see anyway. More on this later folks!

Justin Chatwin as Goku holding a Dragon Ball


James Marsters, (Spike from Buffy) plays Piccolo, and I'm sorry, but he does not look Namekian.

Bulma.....thought she was supposed to have big blue hair......

Just seen old flicks

There are some movies out there that I have never seen that I have always wanted to.
I just needed to find the time. In the past week I was able to watch 2 of these 'want to see films.'

Seven - Came out in 1995 and is still good today. Gory but not gory at the same time, the story will compel you to watch until the very end. Two cops, Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt, go after a serial killer who kills based on the seven deadly sins. When you finish the movie you will find yourself sitting down and contemplating what you just saw. 8.7/10

The Lost Boys - Came out in 1987, before I was born, so that is my main excuse for not seeing it until now. I heard that this film had to be seen if one liked movies. I don't understand why that is. The film is a genre I like to call a 80's flick. It has music, fashion, and fads of the 1980's. In the end it was a decent vampire movie that had some twists and some funny acting, but it just felt so old school. It is a good movie, but it is entirely out of date. It is a great movie to sit down and watch with the parents (any little siblings might get scared by the vampire faces), but after that you will probably not want to watch it again, and that is only because it is not the 80's anymore. Unless you like cult movies....then you will probably watch it again for the cult joy. 7.7/10

I will end up watching more older films that I have yet to see. I think I should make a list or something. My main emphasis on this blog though is to talk about upcoming movies. The past has some well-made films, so i just can't ignore them.

Summer Movies of '08

I seriously started this blog late because now is a kind of lull in movies that attract my attention. The summer was a complete success in my mind, so I shall just start with those since a lot of those films should be coming out on DVD soon

Iron Man - One of the best adaptations from comic-to-film I have seen so far. Great acting plus adding a realistic touch to the superhero. It is also the start of the Avengers franchise (hoped you stayed after the credits). The only downfall to the film is that you don't really get to see Iron Man that much, but then again, you do get a lot of Robert Downey, Jr. 8.5/10

The Incredible Hulk - Better than the first movie, and that is all that I need to like it. Stays truer to the comics than the first film also. Also brings in the 2nd film going into the Avengers franchise (this one you didn't have to sit through the credits for). All-in-all, the movie was good except for the end. The villain just didn't really live up to the hype and there seem to be a lot of questions unanswered, like what is up with General Ross aiding destruction and why can't Bruce Banner and Betty Ross get it on? 7.8/10

Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Sequel to the awesome fantasy film by Guillermo del Toro. How can this movie not be good if del Toro turned down directing such films as Halo, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and I Am Legend just so he could make this movie? And the film has such a good transition from the last one, and it also begs to make a 3rd. If you haven't seen any of the Hellboy movies, you need to go see them both now. Plus, Seth MacFarlane as the voice of Johann Krauss, come on people....hilarious! 8.8/10

Speed Racer - I have felt a lot of hate for this film, but I enjoyed it. First of all, it is supposed to be 'out there'. Dare I even say it was meant to be silly and campy. Watching the film may give you a seizure (not really folks) but you will be dazzled by almost every special effect out there. It does have moments that I don't think should have been in there for children (thought the censor beep in the film gave some kids the giggles), but in the end children will enjoy the movie more than adults because it feels like a big cartoon. I would say Death Race is the adult equivalent for this movie. 7.1/10

WALL-E - Some people ask, "Why robots?" I ask why not? The film starts off slow, yes, I agree, but the adorableness of WALL-E and his daily activities makes up for that fact. The story progresses along at a snail's pace at first. The only thing you understand is that WALL-E is smitten with another robot named EVE. But once you get the general idea of the plot, you will find yourself rooting for the little robots and wanting to have a little WALL-E of your own. PIXAR, you rock! Film great for all ages! 9.0/10

The Dark Knight - If you still haven't seen the movie, you may be 1 out of 5 in the country. But still, yeah, it was awesome. Picking up about a year after Batman Begins, we start right off with Batman and his epicness. Chris Nolan is definitely going in the right direction with his rebooted Batman franchise, but now I only question what will be next. The film had superb acting and a very deep plot even for a film based on a comic. It wasn't just the hero-meet-villain set-up, it was totally different. Felt like the Godfather at certain points with all the mafia stuff, but that is what made it so good. Sit through the long film and afterwards ask yourself, "What is gonna happen with the Joker now that Heath Ledger is dead?" Kids like Batman, but they may find this film a bit frightening....especially Two-Face. 9.5/10 "Why so serious?"

Sex and the City - Yes, I did see this movie, and yes, I am a man. Yes, I did watch all the episodes of the show. So yes, I know what I am talking about. The show was very realistic when it came to things regarding sex, and the film stuck with that, but the film is not the show. With the show, you didn't know what was gonna happen next. With the movie, you kind of know what is going to happen, there are a few twists, but the film doesn't really leave you in suspense. The film is more about love than sex, but I see that as a stepping stone because the characters have moved on and matured. I mean, are we all supposed to be fascinated about sex forever or aren't we all gonna settle down sometime in the future. The movie seriously could have just been another season on HBO in my opinion. But if you liked the show, you will enjoy the movie. 6.8/10

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - I have read all seven novels in the Chronicles of Narnia and I wasn't really expecting them to make this film. Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe yeah because that is famous, but Prince Caspian.....it was a surprise to me. I suppose I liked it. The mood in this film is a lot darker than in the first, and that was awesome, because the movie needed that dark undertone. The other undertone is of course all the Christian religiousness, but the movie is still good if you don't care for that. Epic fights and great effects, the film makes me excited for when Voyage of the Dawn Treader comes out. 7.7/10

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Don't be hatin'. I enjoyed the movie, and I have heard a lot of negative stuff about it, but then I found out some of these people never saw the original films. Look here folks, the original trilogy was a spoof on adventure films from the 1930's. All the adventuring was just silly nonsense with some cool death scenes. The new movie is a spoof on the 1950's, so that is why there is a lot more sci-fi element to this film. And also why the baddies are Russians instead of Nazis. And what dud this film deliver? Silly nonsense with some cool death scenes! If you were to watch the original films and then Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, you would feel the similarity! So enjoy the movie, but you might be afraid of ants for a while.... 8.2/10

This was all awhile ago, so there might actually have been more movies I saw. I will work up some more reviews. Otherwise, I will also update on films coming out and films that have been out for some time that I just recently saw.
Catch ya' later!
