The highly stylized noir graphic novel is getting a second shot at the box office. The original 2005 ‘Sin City’ was stunning in its jump from page to screen; Frank Miller’s source material never looked better. For the sequel he and Robert Rodriguez bring us back to Basin City and crank up everything. The look is just as stunning. Here’s all they are saying so far about this one:

My Take on ‘Man of Steel’

After watching the movie I took to Twitter and announced “Really don’t know how to feel about @ManofSteelMovie. I will have to think on this.” I spent the evening thinking about the movie and I have come to this conclusion: I still don’t know what to think. So I am just going to start writing about ‘Man of Steel’ and see if I can figure out how I feel about it.

BTW…. There will be spoilers… You have been warned… (more…)

I really liked the first movie. It was well done from top to bottom. The sequel looks to be more of the same goodness brought to life from the pages of the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr’s brilliant comic. Seems like all the old friends are there (Gotta love Hit-Girl! Chloë Grace Moretz is an awesomely fantastic young actor and a very beautiful young woman.) and a few new ones as well; most notably is Jim Carrey playing Colonel Stars and Stripes. Pay close attention to Jim when he talks in the trailer. He sounds, to me anyway, an awful lot like Dave Willis’ character Carl Brutananadilewski from ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ or whatever they are calling it now. I wonder if Jimmy Carrey has been watching some Adult Swim…?

Big budget plus big talent plus anticipation doesn’t always equal hit. In fact, more times than not it is the opposite. Thus the reason I am guarding my expectations on the latest reboot of the venerable comic book franchise. The parts are there for a ‘Dark Knightian’ success. But let’s not go there just yet. (Inside I have serious nerdgasms every time I see the different trailers for this movie)

Let’s hope Chris Nolan and Zach Snyder have captured lightning in a bottle because I really want to see a Nolan/Snyder ‘Justice League’ movie with Christian Bale playing an older, broken Bruce Wayne as mentor to Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Nightwing and all the others in the Halls of Justice. I really feel the success of this film will determine the future of the Justice League.

 

 

 

The Dark Knight Rises

 

The third and final chapter of the Chrisopher Nolan Batman trilogy. Nolan has revived one of the most loved comic book characters and given him a fresh life. I look forward to see how he closes the book on his Caped Crusaider.
