It’s always been a point of good-natured contention among comic book fans: Who would win in a fight between their favorite superheroes? Hulk vs. Thor. Iron Man vs. Hulk. And so on. While fans may never get definite answers to such lofty questions, they can at least get a supervillain’s perspective on which Marvel superhero presented his toughest challenge in The Avengers movie.
One of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most elite agents, Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is the greatest living marksman on Earth. Armed with his weapon of choice, the recurve bow, he employs his amazing combat skills to fight along side The Avengers. The movie clocked in at 71 minutes. It was a fast 71 minutes at that, as action never seemed to stop. The screenshots, the trailers… they never did this movie any justice.
They’ve done the impossible. They created a shared movie universe that fully, completely works. One that has multiple franchises that have their own aesthetic but that can get together for one of the most kick-ass blockbusters in years. They’ve proven that character and dialogue (have I mentioned that The Avengers is often laugh-out-loud funny without feeling fully, oppressively Whedonesque (I like Whedonesque stuff, but I understand why a lot of people wouldn’t want it in their Avengers movie)) are just as important to summer blockbusters as action and adventure.
So what are the current talking points about this grand finale film from Christoper Nolan? They involve two characters featured heavily in the trailer video, Catwoman and a detective who appears to be a friend of hers. Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a very prominent role in the movie just based on this new trailer on YouTube. He is scheduled to play John Blake, who some say is a detective or police officer. A previous trailer gave a glimpse of Blake in officer’s uniform. However, the new preview has spawned some interesting speculation.
Overall, this movie succeeds at what it does but doesn’t really push the envelope. As a comic book” movie, it’s fantastic! As a movie” movie, it’s just a pop-corn flick. Entertaining, not ground breaking. I liked it, didn’t love it. I might even buy it when it the avengers movie releases. I enjoyed watching these superheroes together, it was refreshing and fulfilled my inner childhood wet dreams (Did that sound right?). I’d prefer a more story-driven movie with more brains than brawns. With that being said, I’ll take it for what it is.

what I like about netflix is the wide variety of movies avaialble. I don’t watch new releases or big blockbusters, but rather tons of documentaries, foreign films and independent films. I find that netflix’s offerings provide a wider scope of variety of choices than blockbuster. I’ve tried both, and think they both good, however I stuck with netflix and dropped blockbuster because of the cheaper monthly fee.

I think some of the folks doing the math are confusing gigabytes and gigabits, megabytes and megabits or kilobytes with kilobits. There is a big difference and not the same. Roughly a factor of 8 give or take. Basically divide by 8 for aprox. People do this all the time with their internet speeds too. They think a 8mbps/8000kbps connection should download at 8000 kilobytes per second for some reason. I think the math in this article is pretty close and sounds ball park.
Sci-Fi: Trapped on a desolate planet filled with carnivorous monsters, a long-time escaped convict must contend with the arrival of various humans who want him captured for different reasons.
Empire’s review was far more just and realistic and talked more about the people who make these films, Diesel and Twohy not some nobody who Total Film have once again put in the cast list ahead of people like Jordi Molla who are underrated, just because she has breasts. I thought the wait for the Avengers would be painful. I am already working on time machine to go to 2013 to watch it.
Riddick makes me miss drive in theaters and B-movie circuits. This isn’t a film that’s meant to be seen alongside ‘real’ movies; it’s an exuberant bit of silliness that reminds me of the dopey science fiction movies the Italians were making in the 80s, where sense was minimal, characters were defined by how awesome they looked and as long as it was cool they shoe-horned it into the movie. Riddick is the sort of true B-movie that ends up looking crummy because our A-movie landscape is full of films using B-movie conventions; when we see the real thing it feels like a rip-off.
Emerging from the cave, Riddick leg is healed and he finds an abandoned pup which he takes to raise on his own. He manages to take a small mud demon and inject it’s venom into him and his pup over a period of days, so they can become immune to the venom. From his cave, Riddick is able to see the other side of his location which is filled with grass and water, but to get there he must first make it past the pond that houses the mud demons. Riddick battles a mud demon and kills it, and his pup gets loose where a bigger mud demon arises and knocks Riddick aside.
Resident Evil, in 2002, tried a different approach in its adaptation in which it tried to have many different subplots to capture the viewer’s attention. Did it work? No. The problem here was that Resident Evil turned into more of an action movie then a horror/thriller like the games where. The movie itself was really not that scary, had only zombies, mutant dogs and the Licker (the only real monster in the movie) so it is needless to say how this movie did in the box office.
Much of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is more of the same from Ron Burgundy and the gang. As the lead character, Will Ferrell does the news, does some ladies and has a few meltdowns. Brick says idiotic things, Champ says inappropriate things and Brian Fantana has a special cabinet alluding to his assumed sexual prowess.
In a heart-breaking fall from grace, Ron, who unwisely gave his wife a choice between a high-salaried, high profile job and continued married life — is soon back in San Diego as the dead-drunk, massively incompetent announcer of Sea World’s dolphin show, a job even the dolphins could do better. But better times betide. For some reason, persistent producer Freddie Shapp (Dylan Baker) is hot on hiring Ron as the graveyard shift anchor (2 to 5 a.m.) for a new, 24 hour cable news network, called GNN (Global News Network), run by the incomprehensible Aussie mogul and all-around crook Kench Allenby (Josh Lawson).
Surprises, one-liners, a shark fight, and more cameos than a Muppets movie culminate with a manic level of insanity that cranks the comedy up to 11. I laughed till I cried and couldn’t be happier with Anchorman 2. I was worried that maybe they took so long with the sequel because they didn’t have anything worthwhile up their sleeve. But have no worries, the magic is back and this is every bit as quotable as the original Anchorman. Brick even gets a love interest in Chani (Kristen Wiig) who is just as clueless and feeble-minded and just as hilarious.

I bought Anchorman 2 on the playstation network because I loved the first one so much. I honestly didn’t even make it halfway through before I turned it off. That’s not good because I tend to have a wide variety of things that I find funny.

Kervyn noted that the dormant peacekeeping program” that the synopsis mentions, could in fact be an early version of the Ultron program, started by Hank Pym. A man who happens to be appearing in Ant-Man, played by Michael Douglas. That makes for a nice fit, and allows Pym to still sort of be the father of Ultron. And a much better idea than Tony Stark just evolving his J.A.R.V.I.S artificial intelligence system and being the sole creator of the Ultron program. Which all ties in rather nicely to the upcoming film then, that also stars Paul Rudd.
Moreover, if not in “Interstellar,” Cinema Blend guesses that “Avengers: Age of Ultron” may be shown with the Disney movie “Big Hero 6.” This is allegedly because the Disney movie is “based on a Marvel property.” The trailer could also be featured in both. The Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit US cinemas on May 1st 2015. Once again, the UK will get the first bite of the cherry on April 24th.
With director Joss Whedon’s superhero all-star sequel now in post-production and the official synopsis released , fans have been waiting for some kind of glimpse of the semi-finished product. Given the the avengers age of ultron movie May 2015 release date for The Avengers 2, a November bow of the trailer seems about right. Nice. I’m personally glad to hear that for you…it’s something I’ve been looking and hoping for as well.
Hit the jump to take a look at today’s new poster, and check back on Saturday for our full panel recap. Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Paul Bettany, and Don Cheadle. The film opens in theaters on May 1, 2015. Update: We’ve added a Captain America poster as well.
Time and time again the Hulk has proven that he’s more than a match to most, if not all, super heroes. But how does he fair against gods? Lucky for us, there are two gods in the Marvel comic book universe, one from Olympus and one from Asgard, who walk among mortals and they’ve scuffled with the Hulk on a few occassions.
As an Australian, I don’t have a political bias in the American context. I simply don’t understand the differences of opinion between Republicans and Democrats. Similarly my views on the war in Afghanistan would not sit well with a lot of Americans. But the point of the movie is not about those views. I truly hope that I have just stumbled across those that are prepared to hide behind their keyboards.
Very Respectfully, Ultimately, only 2 forms of communications were used (guess a 117 was to heavy) and the ” who got the medal for going out into the open did so because the team didn’t bring the right equipment. Hindsight is 20/10 and its easy to Monday morning quarterback actual events. I have tremendous respect for these men and understand fully the importance of leaving embarassing operational details such as these out.
The film’s director, Peter Berg, wants to immerse you so deeply that you feel as if your bones are breaking, too. There’s a price, of course, for that kind of immersion: It becomes tough to see the movie for the drum-beating. Lone Survivor is a brutally effective movie, made by people who think that they’re serving their country. But they’re just making us coarser and more self-centered. What?! I never commented on Brad or his criticism of this movie anywhere on this site.
I did feel like I’d been through a battle after it though…. A battle to suspend disbelief, and try not to roll my eyes too much at the weak acting. It was almost as dire as Act of Valor, and that’s really saying lone survivor movie something. I am not usually one to become a keyboard warrior and respond in this type if forum, but after seeing Lone Survivor and then coming on line to learn more about the real men, I need to comment.
Mary Poppins was a classic Disney film that even this musical-hating critic loves to this day. It’s the story of a magical nanny who whips the Banks family into shape and was a fun tale with its catchy songs and mix of animation and live action. Who knew some dancing cartoon penguins would create so much drama for Walt Disney as he tried to get P.L. Travers to sell the film rights of the beloved novel which is depicted in the new film Saving Mr. Banks.
The Travers given us in Saving Mr. Banks is a one-trick pony. Emma Thompson does a wonderful job in presenting a character who is peremptory, stiff, unkind, and unfriendly. On a plane trip across the Atlantic, she loudly objects to spending eleven hours in the company of a fussing baby. She complains about California’s endless sunshine. She is rude to Disney’s staff. She demands that tea be prepared properly. She is, in short, the Curmudgeon and over the course of the movie it will be the task of Walt and Co. to loosen up this English harridan with America’s folksy friendliness and, darn it, melt the Curmudgeon’s heart!
Note: If you are looking for the Mary Poppins DVD, it may be hard to find for a decent price. Disney puts movies back into the “vault” after they have been available for a couple of years and then they become harder to get. But, Disney is releasing the 50th Anniversary Edition of the movie on Blu-ray an DVD December 10, 2013 just in time for the Saving Mr. Banks movie release. The new edition will include new bonus features as well as updated sound and picture.
Saving Mr Banks is an entertaining and moving film telling the true story of Walt Disney wooing (for want of a better word!) P.L. Travers for the film rights of Mary Poppins. But it is told with flashbacks to her childhood and some of the largely traumatic events that inspired her famous characters. It is a film with great lead performances (as you would expect from Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks) and fantastic support, particularly from Paul Giamatti. I would love to know more about how much of the story is true but as you’re wiping away the tears at the end, it’s worth sticking around for the credits to get a taste of the real Mrs Travers!
