Watchmen was ok

Maybe I’m too close. While watching this movie a part of me was upset anytime a favorite line or moment was NOT in the movie, and then often I felt the movie made mistakes my being so slavish to the comic. Quite a contradiction. But now that I am 24 hours removed from the film […]

The Dark Knight

I loved Dark Knight, which is without a doubt the best Batman movie ever. It might be the best super-hero movie ever, though I need to sit on that decision for a while, because I give my personal arbitrary rankings a lot of weight. No Spoilers until after the jump… Its hard to talk about […]

Kevin’s top 5 Super-Hero movies as requested by his brother Brian.

X-Men 2 Iron Man Spider-Man 2 Rocketeer Spiderman explanation: I only considered Super-Hero movies that were comic books first. So that eliminates a lot of movies, including the probably #1 on my list: The Incredibles. X-Men 2 did it all for me. Great use of powers, great action, great character moments, great surprises, smart plot. […]
