A Nightmare on Elm Street Definitely Felt Like That

If I was an emoticon kinda guy, I would have put a frowney face after that title. But I'm not, so I didn't. But the movie still sucked. I will give it two things thought: 1) Visually, it looked real good. They did their job with that part. And B) Jackie Earle Haley was pretty awesome as Freddy. He didn't seem to have as much screen time as I thought he would be and he kinda mumbled like Rorschach at times but he was still pretty awesome.
It's just a shame that they had to cast such shitty actors in it. The writing was pretty bad too, but ya kind of expect that in a movie like this. I guess you kind of expect bad acting too. I guess I just figured that they would try to do something that wasn't already done in all the other versions of it. Which means good acting and good writing. Oh well. I suppose they still have time to look up Death Machine. (seriously, that's a horrible movie and you should try to watch it. I dare ya)

It's Been two weeks since I last posted anything? Man, I have some problems. You all know I can talk at great lengths, so why is this any different? I have no idea but I feel like I have let you all down and I hope you let me make it up to you. Again. So I'll go right into my movie review.
Kick-Ass was amazing.
I'm a big fan of the comic, but I gotta tell ya, it seemed like moving over to a movie format may not be the easiest thing. And I was wrong. The first half was pretty similar to what set-ups the book has but the back end is a bit different. And I think I may actually have like the movie version a little better. I loved it. I think the only thing I didn't like were some of the cliched Italians. And that's only because I wish I were more in touch with my heritage as one. It was a great movie. If you can stand the blood and violence and language, go see it. Every comic geek should be there at some point. Unless you don't like blood and violence and language. Then skip it. But you should go anyway. You know how I know I really loved it? I actually like Nic Cage. And I hate that dudes acting. But I really liked him in this. Go see it. I can't say it enough.

Bucky Gets a Name

News is throwing out that Sebastian Stan has signed on to a 5 movie deal to play Cap's sidekick Bucky Barnes. The guy is apparently on Gossip Girl (hooray...) but some of you might recognize him from the recent Hot Tub Time Machine (Sarah, I know you've seen that one a couple of times) where he played Blaine. I would imagine this is the main ski patrol guy whom I thought was named Lane....

But oh well. He kinds looks the part but I really have no recollection of his acting so it's yet another vote I will hold onto until I see the movie.

Blackest Night 8 w/ Spoilers and Pictures

So who read Blackest Night 8? Anybody? Nobody? Alright, good. Here's what happened...

My ass got kicked.

Awesome series with an awesome ending. After Sinestro becoming the embodiment on Life after he merged with The Entity, I wasn't quite sure what Johns was going to do next. And yet the ending wasn't the biggest surprise. Nekron pulls Sinestro and Entity apart only to have Hal, after a plethora of "we choose life" comments joining it and making his own "White Lantern Corps"! And of course, if Black brings the dead, then it only stands to reason that White brings the life, and Hal begins bringing the dead back to life, including William Hand, the Anti-Monitor, Deadman (go figure) and all the heroes we've been missing.

Overall, kind of cheesy but a great issue and a great series. It most definately makes me excited for Brightest Day, also written by Johns and Tomasi. I do believe it starts this month.
