I’m not a fan of Sack Snyder. I remember when I saw the trailer for “Watchmen” It looked so unique. It looked completely different from the other superhero films of the time. And, since it came out before we became completely saturated in comic book films, I thought it would be so cool.
Check out my game face! I’ll keep it on all movie! Literally! No other facial expressions to speak of!
When I saw the film for the first time, I was pretty disappointed. I mean, the visual style is neat and very unique. the blue guy was pretty cool for the time. I liked the idea of having a more cynical superhero movie… but in the end I was bored…. the movie was flatter than that cup of Mountain Dew I left in my car the other day (don’t ask). I really wanted to like it… but I just couldn’t Continue reading →
I enjoy a good conspiracy theory. I love hearing about people who, for no apparent reason, decide something is true, and then, for some other reason, decide they will spend the rest of their life proving something true… even when there is zero actual evidence to show their absurd theories are true.
This is where the best conspiracy theory ever began… sort of…
To be a conspiracy theorist, you must have some serious creativity, and some even more serious outside the box thinking… Of course, to assume your conspiracy is true… well… you’re pretty far outside the box already. Continue reading →
So I’m making a new resolution as of today. The resolution is never to ever read any post or article that has a title that goes something like this: THIS IS THE CUTEST THING YOU’LL EVER SEE! or, YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHO THESE CARTOON CHARACTERS ARE BASED ON!
This guy knows what I’m talking about!
Why have I made this new resolution? because 100% of the time, these posts/articles are LIES! EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM! Sure, I occasionally read one where I say, “yeah, that’s pretty cute.” or “Oh, that’s kind of interesting, I didn’t know that,” or even, on rare occasions, “Oh, I wouldn’t have thought that about so and so.” But never once have I though “OMG THIS IS LITERALLY THE CUTEST THINK I’VE EVER SEEN!!!! THEY WERE SO AMAZINGLY RIGHT! I’M SO GLAD I CLICKED ON THIS LINK!” or “OMG, THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING AND UNBELIEVABLE FACT I’VE EVER LEARNED! I CAN’T EVEN RIGHT NOW!” Continue reading →
Ever since the first X-Men movie way back in 2000, it seems like Superhero movies have slowly trended toward interconnectedness. (is that actually a word? Well… I’m a blogger. I get to make up words…) After the X-Men trilogy we had movies focusing on Characters like that Wolverine Origins movie (which, aside from the completely awful CG, I didn’t think was all that awful a film), and then Marvel literally made like, fifteen movies just to set up the Avengers movie back in 2012. Suddenly the Marvel Universe and all of its movies have this neat feeling that all of its movies somehow weave together. They’re making quite the tapestry, which makes its respective characters seem more vibrant. Each movie has relevance to the overall storyline. It’s a pretty exciting concept for comic book fans (as long as you nerds can stop whining about all the things that aren’t true to the comics)
Now Warner Bros is starting to follow suit, with “Batman v Superman” slated for 2016. It seems like weaving separate characters together in comic book movies is the new trend, and people seem to agree that the crossover makes everything more interesting. And I most definitely agree. In fact, we need to take the crossover to a whole new level!
Batman and Superman will be the next to copycat the Avengers… I know I’m not the first to say it, but when is that Justice League movie gonna happen?
When I saw the first Transformers film I thought to myself, “Hey, this could really be something special!” That movie was cheesy, had good action, and just enough story and interesting characters to make for some good fun. But I was wrong. I was soooooo wrong.
I never should’ve supported later Transformer’s films. I should’ve said what I said when I heard Jerry “Wear a decent formula out until everyone hates the original” Bruckheimer and his Disney Cohorts announced an endless array of pirate movies. I should have stayed away. Continue reading →
Frozen has been out on Blu-Ray for a few weeks, and almost immediately it has become the best-selling kids movie out there!. It’s certainly on track to shatter records for kids movie sales, especially after the manipulative Disney company re-releases it on 3D Blu Ray in the fall. (Man Disney is a jerk. Just release the 3D version the first time. If the movie weren’t so good I would just up and boycott Disney altogether)
My two followers may have noticed that I have been conspicuously absent from my post on the Catchy Blog. That has been for two reasons: The first is that, though I have had lots of blogging ideas, I’ve just been super busy with work, school, and family. The second is that I started watching breaking bad on Netflix, and it consumed every minute of my limited free time. If I had any time that I could call mine, it was devoted to Walter White.
When John Elway and company brought Peyton Manning into the Broncos organization they doubled down on the chance to win now. They knew the odds were that Manning gave them two or three years to get Denver a Super Bowl victory. After that, who knows what could happen.
Sorry, Denver, but time might be up sooner than you thought….
Another year, another “Paranormal Activity” movie. I have to admit, I’ve been a huge fan of the series, but after number four, I wasn’t all that excited about another one coming out, and I figured I wouldn’t bother going to this one. But then, after some plans fell through and My wife and I were left without an idea of what activity we should take part in at the last minute. So we thought, Why quit while we’re ahead anyway?
While I walked in thinking “Not another one,” I walked out surprisingly satisfied.
I’ve already mentioned this on my blog, but I thought I’d better explain myself to all those rabid Perry fans out there. I have a strange conspiracy theory about Katy Perry’s music, and how it is somehow tailored to make us stupid. I don’t know how. I only know it does (she isn’t alone. The process I’m about to describe applies to many pop artists, but the force of her music seems especially potent. So Ms. Perry… I apologize. You get to be the scapegoat).
Me? Conspiracy? Look at me! I’m way too innocent and Pretty for that!
