It’s been a while since my last review but I had a few things I wanted to say about this movie. Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed it and thought it was a good movie. Anne Hathaway was excellent as Selina Kyle and could have had more time on screen. Tom Hardy’s performance as Bane was superb. As a matter of fact all the actin performances were great. Though it was funny how Michael Caine would cry and walk off at the end of every scene, but he was still great. The writing was good and Nolan’s …

All-Star Superman is the 10th movie in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line. It’s based on a 12-issue series of the same name written by comic book fanboy favorite Grant Morrison. The previous movies include, Superman: Doomsday, Batman: Gotham Knight, Green Lantern: First Flight, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, and Batman: Under the Red Hood. Basically, the story is about Superman’s impending death due to some maneuvering by Lex Luthor and how Superman/Clark Kent is dealing with it. Sounds like that could be a potentially great story.
Let me start by saying that of the previous 9 releases, I liked …

Vulture has learned that Warner Bros. is negotiating to reteam with The Book of Eli‘s Hughes brothers to have them direct a live-action remake of the cult favorite Akira, from a script by Iron Man scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. (Akira is being produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s company, Appian Way, along with Andrew Lazar, who’s also currently producing an adaptation of DC Comics’ Jonah Hex for Warners.)
“It has been really fun playing a goddess, I have to say. She’s wild. It is full-on flirtatiousness.”
This depiction of Hell is sumptuous, decadent and dark, all candlelight and high ceilings full of Gothic detail. In Greek mythology, Persephone is abducted by Hades and tricked into becoming his wife and Queen of the Underworld .
She is also the goddess of springtime and Rosario first thought of wearing robes and flowers. But the actress wanted to go for a modern look with “chipped nail polish and lace” rather than a T-shirt and mini skirt.
Instead, she wears a bustle and corset. …
Comic book Resources has a interview with Denzel Washington on his his new film “Book of Eli” opening January 16th. Here’s a few excerpts.
When asked how Eli was different from roles he has taken on in the past, Washington replied, “Most of the characters I play, there’s been some kind of evolution – spiritual evolution. Even Malcolm X, who went from hatred to a complete different doctrine.” The personal journey of the character is key to the decisions Washington has made in his choice of characters over his career. “Even something as dark as ‘Training Day,’ the first thing …

Idris Elba was cast as Heimdall, the Asgardian who stands guard on the BiFrost Bridge. He joins Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Colm Feore, Samuel L. Jackson, Stellan Skarsgard, and Stuart Townsend.
I think this is great. Elba is one of the premiere black actors and doesn’t get nearly the pub that he should. He would’ve been my pick for any numerous black superheroes, but this is a perfect role for him. Props to Marvel for making this move.
It’s been a couple of years since I posted this, so I thought that it was time to bring it back.
In true blogger Halloween tradition, I decided to do a horror movie list. They aren’t the greatest horror movies you’ll find, but each of them have a certain charm that can’t be denied.
1. Blacula (1972)
How can you not include this movie on a list like this? It is a classic.
2. Scream Blacula Scream (1973)The only sequel on the list. But a horror movie with the Queen (IMHO) of Blaxploitation movies, Pam Grier, is definitely a movie you should …
So you will probably begin to get sick of me now since we are less than a month from the release of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”, but I’m hoping it will be worth it.
There’s been lots of HP-related news lately, and it would take way too long to post everything, but what I will post is an extended clip of the “Tom Riddle Orphanage” scene, which previously debuted at the MTV Movie Awards a few weeks ago.

It’s taken me a few days to get my thoughts together. Actually, I enjoyed the movie so much that I didn’t think it would be fair to write a review so soon after seeing the movie. So, I waited until now since I have had time to digest everything and for the initial shock to wear off. Let me start by saying it was difficult to not get hopes up for this movie. Star Trek wasn’t completely original (time travel, Khan-like revenge), but it did it in such a refreshing way. Let me get to it.
Casting was perfect. Chris …
