Next Installment of Batman

September 9, 2008

Dark Knight.

Now that everyone is nice and lubricated, here’s a short article on MTV.com that mentions the possible cast memebers for the next  Batman.  In short:

Johnny Depp = The Riddler

Philip Seymour Hoffman = Penguin

I’d just like to say that I loved Jim Carrey in Batman Forever. However, I’m not a big comic book fan, so I didn’t care what he brought as the Riddler, but just as him. Yep. I’m a Carrey fan.

That said. Johnny Depp… ❤

‘Nuff said.

Discuss.

Pixar has done it again…and an Art Show

June 27, 2008

I am pleased to say, not that I have ever doubted them, that Pixar has done it again. Wall E is AMAZING. Great film for numerous reasons. It’s noticeable that they tried a lot of new things in terms of their CG abilites and film making. I went to the midnight showing yesterday and wasn’t let down. The short film before it was just as amazing. Probably their best yet. It’s called Presto. If you look it up, there’s a clip of it floating around the internet. Bottom line. Wall E. See it.

Earlier yesterday, I went to an art show at the urban vinyl toy store known to many as Munky King, on Melrose. The artwork displayed was awesome, the artists were really really cool, giving out free commissions, and the vinyl toys were great as usual. It was the release of a lot of new lines of toys.

The rest can be viewed here. That’s all well and good, but they didn’t include a list for the horror genre! How do you compile a list of the best movies of the best genres and not include Horror?!?

So here’s my list of Top Ten Horror Films…

The Exorcist (number one)
Poltergheist
The Thing
The Sixth Sense
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
The Shining
Night of the Living Dead

The Blair Witch Project

These are my personal choices. If you don’t agree, you are wrong.

At Long Last

June 20, 2008

Finally, the feeling of not feeling guilty when you’re not doing work. Yes, I’m on vacation but that usually doesn’t mean anything. My vacations up to this point have only either been one week long or three weeks long. NOW, I get a whole month! Not sure why, but I’m not complaining. Some BS regarding leap year or whatever. It’s kind of sad how I’m marveling over a whole month of vacation while other people’s normal vacations are at least 3 months long. But, I’m happy nonetheless.

Big summer for Movies. Plenty of good ones that have and are coming out. Some of the ones that I’ve seen already are:

Iron Man (pretty good. better than I thought it would be)

Kung Fu Panda (probably the only feature animation done in 3D that i actually liked other then the Pixar films. It’s about time these fools got it right.)

The Incredible Hulk (pretty good as well. better than I thought it would be. complete redemption from the other one by Broke Back Director.)

The movies that are coming out and I’m looking forward to seeing.

Hellboy 2 (want to see Del Toro’s take)

The Dark Knight (finally, someone does Batman right. after how many tries? thank you, Christopher Nolan. RIP to Heath Ledger. Judging from the trailers, he does an amazing job as Joker. Died on my birthday.)

Wall E (Pixar movie. Enough said.)

Others that I’m looking forward to later on either in the year or the next to come. Practically just the miller films right now.

The Spirit

Watchmen

See any good movies latley?
