Superman and Batman vs. Vampires and Werewolves and omg best thing ever?

Posted in Uncategorized by deflowerd on July 31, 2008

This could be the best invention in the world of art, comics, and life ever. It’s a new comic and I want it. First person to give me one… um. Yeah, just give me one.

Christian Bale beats women?

Posted in film by deflowerd on July 21, 2008

Ninemsn.com.au has reported that Bale, who recently kicked ass in The Dark Knight, has been accused of assault by his mother and sister.

That’s pretty fucked up. I wonder what will come of this. Did he assault them? Would they lie about something so serious? Bale is basically the biggest star in the world right now, so this is kinda huge news.

Story here.

The Dark Knight

Posted in film by deflowerd on July 21, 2008

The Dark Knight. Wow. Just… wow. It’s amazing. It’s the best Batman film ever, the best superhero film ever, and it’s one of the best crime films I’ve seen to date. It’s just freaking brilliant. Ledger as The Joker was terrifically terrifying, hilarious and astounding. I’ve seen the film twice now, and the second time around I spent ages just staring at his face trying to find Heath Ledger in there – but all I could see was The Joker.

Here is the leaked … well it could be concept art or it could be a screenshot from the film or it could be fake…

but it’s for… you guessed it: Two-Face.

On The Horizon

Posted in film by deflowerd on January 2, 2008

It’s 1 am, it’s a weekday, and I am on holidays. I’m taking this opportunity to preview several upcoming movies.

Wanted

This film, starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie and Terence Stamp, is about a young man (McAvoy) who is wrenched from his dull existence as an office worker into a life of adventure and murder. The wrenchers are a bunch of good (as in, they perform acts of “justice”) assassins, and the movie is about the protagonists transformation into one of them.

My verdict: Upon seeing the trailer, it looks like a bad Matrix ripoff with elements of Mission Impossible.

Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead

A film about two brothers, played by Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who decide to rob their own parents’ jewelry store, and directed by Sidney Lumet (mastermind behind Dog Day Afternoon and 12 Angry Men among others). How can this go wrong?

My verdict: As far as I’m concerned, this will be a contender for the best movie of 2008.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street

Oh god. Johnny Depp channeling Ichabod Crane-gone-insane, once again under the steady/gothic directing eye of Tim Burton… with songs! I am dying (zing!) to see this. Helena Bonham Carter doesn’t particularly excite me as an actress, but I’m counting on JD and some Alan Rickman action on pulling me through.

My verdict: Fuck. Yes.

The Dark Knight

The next installment in Christopher Nolan’s series of Batman…uh… Batmans? Batmen? Well, it’s number 2, and it’s all about The Joker. Batman is again played by Christian Bale, Michael Caine is still Alfred, and we have Heath Ledger playing The Joker. They have replaced Katie Holmes with Maggie Gyllenhaal,which is a good move in my opinion. We also get Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent, who fans will know later becomes the villain Two-Face. I am really looking forward to this.

My verdict: You HAVE to see the 5-minute-long trailer in which the Joker’s men rob a bank. Get on YouTube!

There Will Be Blood

Daniel Day-Lewis wears a mustache ala Gangs Of New York and goes oil-prospectin’ in America during, I believe, a turn of the century timeline. He plays Daniel Plainview, and apparently gives a brilliant and powerful performance. Paul Dano, of Little Miss Sunshine fame, plays a priest who becomes Plainview’s nemesis of sorts, and everyone is saying that this is a career-defining and career-making performance from the young man. I cannot wait to see this.

My verdict: I Will Be There For When There Will Be Blood

Okay I think I’ve spoiled you enough for one night.

Auf Wiedersehen!
