If a live-action adaption of this insanely good gateway anime were made, this is who I would pick. Sorry, but Keanu’s ship has long sailed…

And since this is never gonna happen, might as well dream of what could be. That’s all life is anyway, right…?

Side note: Bigger actors were named for this because unknowns that would be perfect are…unknown.

Stars: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Carrie Coon, Kim Dickens, Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris

Rated R for a scene of bloody violence, some strong sexual content/nudity, and language, Running time 149 minutes, Drama/Mystery

When reviewing a David Fincher film, you’ve got to know what you’re getting into. You’ve got to understand that social etiquette, placement, and status will all be paraded in a subversive manner, and that the ending won’t necessarily include a solution but a finale all the same.

Knowing this, and that characters will be featured in multiple shades of grey, and you can enjoy yourself. Ignore or misunderstand this, and you might be in for a 149-minute set up that leaves you dissatisfied.

But that’s not gonna happen. Continue reading

Getting to the point, this will be well worth your kids’ time, providing the right kind of suspense and action needed to keep’em pressed to their seat, though older audience members may be left wanting. Continue reading

Freaking Comic Book Movies

Just…no.

There are a lot of comic book movies these days. That’s pretty obvious, yes, but there are even more than some people probably realize because a lot of them aren’t superheroes. 2010’s Red, AMC’s Walking Dead, the ultimate display in mediocrity with Cowboys & Aliens. There’s just a nonstop flow of them and if you couldn’t tell, it probably won’t stop till Armageddon.

For good reason too, because they make a crap-ton of money. Avengers has crossed the billion dollar mark, along with all its counterpart films making well over their budget as well. Amazing Spider-man is also sure to do some pretty good business even with the exhausted sigh of many fans who are still reeling from 2007’s third installment which seemed to ruin the series’ name in the long run.
