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!
This post will mostly follow the same path as the last post I did on the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman (here) but will feature all the new castings and what I think of them from a comic book point of view and a big film nerd. First I’d like to look at both sides of the coin…and then go ballistic at the end. First we’ll see who’s been officially cast and why they 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. Fun times ahead.
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.
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?”
