And Here…We………GO!

Posted in Batman, DC, Heath Ledger, IMAX, Movies, The Dark Knight, The Joker on July 17, 2008 by superman1224

I first started writing about The Dark Knight almost a year ago. At the time I had heard whispers about the film. How Nolan was following through with his teaser at the end of Batman Begins, casting Heath Ledger as the Joker. I’ll admit, as much as I liked “10 things I hate about you”, I was a little more than skeptical about our Aussie broke back cowboy portraying the Clown Prince Of Crime. It seemed like a long shot, but at the same time, given Nolan’s track record, I trusted that he had his reasons. So then pictures started to surface of the new joker. I admit I was shocked! My mouth dropped open, and my attention had been grabbed by the possibility that this joker was going to be a real depiction of what the Joker would be like in the real world. Suddenly Batman ceased to lay flat on the comic book page. He had now become more real. For the die-hard fans this couldn’t have been more welcomed. The DC kids have been wating for their characters to be taken seriously, and Nolan’s Batman has made everyone sit at attention.

So here we are. Premiere night. All the posts and pictures on this blog have all lead up to this point. Tonight at 12:01am I will be seeing what has been THE most anticipated film for me in an IMAX theatre. I know this movie has been hyped as much as a movie can be, and that you would have to be pretty brave or just a complete tool, to leave the theatre thinking it was just OK, I’m going to give the movie it’s due justice. I’m going to forget what I have read, wrote, and seen prior and just watch and enjoy myself. I plan to give it a non-spoiler review like everyone in cyberspace has done already. As for the rest of you that read this blog and are sick of me talking about this movie, things will return to normal after the review, so bare with me.

For those of you seeing the movie tonight please come back and leave a comment on what you thought of the movie.

and the Oscar goes to….

Tonight On Smallville….The Finale!

Posted in CW, DC, Finale, Lex Luthor, Michael Rosenbaum, Season 7, Smallville, Superman on May 15, 2008 by superman1224

Tonight is the season 7 finale of Smallville. Tonight is exciting on so many levels, but it is a little bittersweet, for tonight marks the last appearance for Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor. Michael has played arguably the best Lex Luthor the world has ever seen. I’m confident tonight will be his finest performance to date. Here is The CW’s official decription for the season finale Arctic.

LEX DISCOVERS CLARK’S SECRET — Kara (Laura Vandervoort) tells Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) he is destined to defeat the Traveler and offers to take him to the Fortress to learn how. Clark (Tom Welling) is stunned that Kara would go to Lex but it is revealed that Brainiac is impersonating Kara and she’s actually trapped in the Phantom Zone. Chloe is arrested by the Department of Domestic Security and Lana awakens from her comatose state. Meanwhile, in an epic turn of events, Clark and Lex face off in the Fortress and Lex learns Clark’s secret. Erica Durance and Aaron Ashmore also star. Todd Slavkin directed the episode written by Don Whitehead & Holly Henderson
