Batman & Superman – Ben Afleck.. Really?

Batman&Superman

Batman under Christoper Nolan & Christian Bale became an epic story of Batman, the true Dark Knight. It reached beyond the comic fans and across the globe, there is no one that didn’t love Batman over the past 8 years. Zach Snyder’s Superman was also a deep Superman movie, and I really like how he was portrayed in it by Henry Cavill. So the up coming mash up of Batman & Superman was extremely exciting news, and I was hoping Christian Bale would reprise his role as Batman, as I can’t picture anyone else doing it.

Now the shocking news that Ben Afleck is going to be the next Batman is nothing short of revolting, I got a gag reflex when I heard it, on the verge of throwing up from my disgust of him. He is an actor of his own right but NOT a superhero, doesn’t anyone remember Daredevil? I love comic movies and this I tried to love but to no avail, I was just utterly disappointed by it. I just really hope most of us comic fans are proved wrong and Ben Afleck does right by The Dark Knight.

Old School Trailers

Armegaddon was one of my favorite movies, it still is, and I still love watching when its on TV or I watch it every once in a while. I always knew that I loved movies but this movie was just something else for me. I remember back in the day we really didn’t see trailers much, we didn’t really watch online trailers back in 1998 or 1997, we were all on emails, chat programs and playing quick online games. Now when I look at this old trailer I think the trailer itself is crap, quality of the video itself aside, I think the way that they put it together wasn’t good at all, and the guy’s voice just feels disconencted from the movie itself. Its funny I think the guy who was talking is the same guy that does all the movies. I loved Bruce Willis in this movie and Steve Buscemi (the guy who went nuts while in space) was hilarious in this movie, it had a fantastic storyline. I didn’t even know who Michael Bay was at the time, but I knew Jerry Bruckheimer was the producer.

Review: State of Play

It was one of those movies I wasn’t expecting to be this good. Russel Crowe plays the role of a reporter working for the Washington Globe and Ben Afleck is a big shot politician who just lost his aide who is also his mistress. Things go from there, and as he is working on one story it connects to another also pointing to Ben, who is also Crowe’s friend and he is trying to unravel this whole conspiracy. Its a fast paced movie, and I do like how Crowe plays his role in this movie, and you are always trying to guess whats next and never left without something happening and connecting the dots.
