Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) Review

Watching this film might be the most disappointed I have ever been in a Cinema. I have been waiting years for this film. Hyped right from the start and only built since then. So yeah this was a really, really bad film. The story was to say the least convoluted and stuffed with 6 films worth of concepts which just made it messy. The acting was either bad or they were given nothing to work with, and don’t get me started on the dialogue. Boo, just BOOO!

“20 years in Gotham Alfred, we’ve seen what promises are worth, how many good guys are left? How many stay that way.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Comic-Con Trailer #1) Review

YES!!! Holy crap batman we have gosh darn trailer! I am exceedingly excited for this film. I get what the film is now and the characters within it, but it didn’t show anything of any real consequence (no spoilers). The dialogue is fascinating and already from the trailer an improvement over the last film. The score sounds fantastic and truly epic! The action and effects look spectacular, and I cannot wait to dive into more detail so enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

“People hate what they don’t understand. Be their hero Clark, be their angel, be their monument, be anything they need you to be. Or be none of it. You don’t owe this world a thing, you never did.” – I really like this line.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Teaser #1) Review

So are teasers just trailers that leave you more puzzled than when you started? Yes Tim, yes they are. About time they showed something. Wait, no still 11 months away. Why are they showing this? In no way am I complaining this was a very welcomed treat. My excitement for this film has ticked up which is impressive because I was already frothing from the mouth with excitement (Maybe a little rabies). The film is clearly influenced by the events of Man of steel and I want to see how this will be weaved into The Dark Knight Returns story that is clearly the basis for this films plot. Loved the clippings of voices describing the differing viewpoints of this “hero”. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

Movie News Report: He Lived Long and Prospered

Encase anyone was wondering I am still doing reviews but haven’t seen any new films recently and the new trailers have been poo. I will be watching and reviewing Chappie next week.

This is an end of the week wrap up of what has happened in the geeky world of movies. I took better notes this time so I have a more complete list of things that have happened. Sadly nothing of much note has happened in the world of movies. So this post is a bit more random. And of course the devastating news that Leonard Nimoy has passed away.

Also I’ll include some movie features I liked from the blogosphere. I follow a lot of nerds!

Justice League: War (2014) Review

Didn’t think a DC animated film would be the first film of 2014 I would review but here we are. I got to admit this film is pretty great. Its action packed, funny, got a great voice cast, the story whilst simple works pretty well to assemble a Justice League and it’s filled with pretty good pop culture references. The visuals in this are great, with fights, powers and character designs all looking pretty cool. The characters are done brilliantly from Batman to Wonder Woman, the voicing and characters development is small if any but the establishment of who these characters where was done really well, you just get them. The film is out for VOD so I recommend checking it out.

Batman: “You bruise but you don’t kill do you…Clark?”

Superman: “You’ve made your point. Ha Bruce Wayne.”

Green Lantern: “Who the hell is Bruce Wayne?”

Ben Affleck as Batman: My Totally Unbiased Opinion

I know a lot of you would like to hear my crazy ranting anger over this news and believe me it’s there. But first I’d like to look at both sides of the coin…and then go ballistic at the end. First we’ll see Affleck’s accomplishes and why he may be good in the role, I’ll include arguments from around the web and plenty of MEME’S. Then lastly I will discuss the problems I see and other angry nerds have voiced around the world. This should be…fun.

If you like the post then I may do more casting reactions or something similar again. Please enjoy and I look forward to some interesting comments.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (2013) Review

This is how you make a batman film! Fanatically close to its source material, filled with classic DC dark noir styles and a fantastic voice cast. I have always loved the Batman stories and this one is based off a favourite arc of mine, The Dark Knight Returns. Christopher Nolan actually based some of the stories in The Dark Knight Rises of this arc and you can clearly see the influence, Nolan picked well. The visuals in this are great, with fights and brutal the scenes can get, this one really doesn’t hide from the violence and blood. The characters are done brilliantly from Batman to The Joker, the voicing and characters development is some of the strongest I have seen in most live action films. The films are split in two and are both available to rent or buy.

Batman: “No, Joker. You’re playing the wrong game. The old game. Tonight you’re taking no hostages. Tonight I’m taking no prisoners.”

Winners of Best Films 2012 part 1 & Best Films of Nolan

Best Films of 2012 – Part 1

Ok so we are now into the 7th month of the year so I thought I would put my favourite films of the year into monthly winners for the first half of 2012. Obviously part 2 won’t be coming out until January next year so keep an eye out for that when I will also reveal my winner of the year in genre categories (nobody really cares, just look at the pretty posters). Each winner is only put in a mini review but has been linked to the full reviews if you want to read more.

The Best of Christopher Nolan

“Hollywood deserves a better class of director… and I am going to give it to them” – Christopher Nolan. Ok so he didn’t actually say that, but you got to admit that it would be pretty great if he said that at an interview and very true quite frankly.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Review

‘Christopher Nolan’ really doesn’t make bad films. ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ was a great film to end the epic trilogy Nolan started with Batman Begins and then made better with ‘The Dark Knight’. This film really brings the old school epics such as ‘Ben-Hur’ with thousands of extras running around on giant sets to the modern era of films. But sadly it was the last of this superhero trilogy and possibly the best adaptation of a comic hero we will ever see.
