Dust off the Bat Signal cause the Commissioner is lighting it up with our first image of J.K. Simmons as James Gordon in Justice League.
Friday’s here and I’ve got a new editing rig so let’s break it in with The Recap. So this week Sly stallone was inked to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Well we now know specifically what role he’s going to play. Captain America: Civil War released a trailer for the May debut that had fans breaking the internet with joyous cries and the 10% whining that always comes with these films.
With filming on Justice League Part 1 set to begin filming next month, casting for various side roles are underway. Today brings news that none other than J.K. Simmons has been tapped to bring the newest version of Batman's police ally to the big screen.
When first viewing the trailer for Dark Skies, I was immediately excited to see it. It appeared to be another supernatural horror film concerning a creepy little kid. You can never go wrong using that concept. My interest waned a bit upon learning the movie revolved around an alien encounter. I don't dislike movies about aliens, but they just don't excite me as much as a good ghost story or haunted house flick.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the best TV shows ever made. Despite being essentially a children's show, The Last Airbender was almost perfect in every regaurd; the characters were likeable and well thought out, the action was amazing, the plot was intense and thoughtful, and the overall tone of the show was pitch perfect, featuring some of the finest episodes of television I've ever seen. In my opinion, TLA is the closest this generation might get to a Star Wars-esque trilogy...it's just that wonderful. So with all that in mind, I went into The Legend of Korra quite hopeful. As a sequel to the original story, things could go south pretty fast (ala The Prequel Trilogy). But I had hope in creators Michael Dante Di Martino and Bryan Konietzko (the two co-creators of TLA) to deliver something that could live up to the origanal's glory. Do the first two episodes of the show promise that...or, lord forbid, does it foreshadow another Phantom Menace? Find out what we think in our review of the show's first two episodes.
