Justice League= WIN!

I watched Justice League today and it was FANTASTIC!!

Please if you’re a comic book fan don’t let a handful of presumptuous and full of shit critics who are completely owned by Disney (Marvel’s boss) stop you from seeing this film.

Its not perfect, it moves too quickly, the villain, while well voiced, doesn’t get enough backstory, and the CGI is bad at moments BUT… It has a really solid superhero action, just enough character development to be satisfying, and really solid performances. 

Seriously, it doesn’t matter if some lines or actions seem unreal, it is a superhero movie, for gods sake!

I loved to see all those heroes (and gods of the first scenes) together.

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman once again was PERFECT! Batman, Aquaman, Flash and particularly Cyborg was exceptionally well done. 

Justice League was exactly what my eyes needed to clean up the garbage that was Marvel’s Thor. This is a real superheroes movie, not another comedy!
  

FUCK the critics, this was great! (Yet WW still the best superhero film this year)

The Man Who First Played Godzilla Has Died

Haruo Nakajima, the suit actor who played Godzilla from 1954’s Godzilla to 1972’s Godzilla vs. Gigan, has died. He was 88.

Nakajima started his career playing small bit roles, but his big break was bringing Godzilla to life in its seminal debut. He would go on to play the character for the 12 consecutive films that followed over the next 18 years.

While the gig paid well, Nakajima said he didn’t initially get the respect he deserved donning the 100 kilogram Godzilla suit. “Back then, people didn’t speak positively of suit actors,” says Nakajima. “There’d be whispers going around that working inside (a suit) is not an acting job.”

The character he played is one of the most famous in movie history.

According to Sponichi Annex, Nakajima died yesterday afternoon after contracting pneumonia.

Rest in peace legendary sir!

New Justice League Trailer Is All Kinds of Epic

Justice League drops on November 17, and they premiered a new trailer for it. It’s basically a big cartoon, but Ezra Miller seems like he’ll be fun as Flash, my respect for Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is increasing, and I think we’re all in agreement about Jason Momoa as Aqua-Piece Of Ass. You can watch below.

It was very heavy on Steppenwolf, the villain of the film, and ended on a very intriguing tease… CAN’T WAIT!

Arby’s Facebook Status Updates Are Taking Internet By Storm

While most restaurants use their social media accounts as billboards for every-possible-angle photos of their menu items, Arby’s fast-food chain decided to use their Facebook in a more clever way.

They started posting simple artworks that people actually wanted to see. And it paid off big time.

“Our strategy really involves identifying the niche areas of interest like gaming, hunting, golf that we think resonates well with our audience,” said Josh Martin, the senior director of the social media team. And once they hit it off with the gamer audience, they knew they were onto something.

Now it has escalated into a Facebook page with almost 3 million followers and a constant stream of awesomely creative posts that cover everything from games, tv shows, movies and more.

Creative and full of win!!

May the 4th….

If you’re reading this, you’re on the internet. And if you’re on the internet today, it’s pretty hard to avoid the fact that it’s May 4, also known as May the 4th be with you, also known as Star Wars Day. And we’re all just looking for ways to celebrate.

One way may be to buy, or at least look at, all of the brand new art that has been released for Star Wars Day. Let’s begin with s a BB-8 piece by Andy Fairhurst, available through the Bottleneck Gallery.

The next pieces are all from Acme Archives and are available at this link.

Wooden Nickel just released the below piece at this link.

And this site, Spoke Art, just added one more as a surprise too.

Enjoy!!

Ghost In The Shell

I have been wanting to go to the cinema for a long time, but I didn’t want to go alone. I asked Xavier few times and he said yes, only to change his mind later.

Last week (before I met Alex) he said yes again, but he never texted me back… until yesterday. And his message had nothing to do with going to the cinema. So, I gave up.

I just have to accept that he doesn’t want to see me, as I also accepted that Justin doesn’t want to talk to me.

Anyhow, last night Alex and I went to see Ghost In The Shell.

Ghost in the Shell happens in a near-future where cybernetic modification of the human body is commonplace. Johansson’s character, Major, works for government counter-terrorism agency Section 9 and is told her brain was implanted into a powerful robotic body after a near-death experience. A mission to stop a series of high-profile killings leads the Major to painful truths about how she was reborn into her new life.

Like the 1995 animated movie directed by Mamoru Oshii and the Masamune Shirow manga it’s based on, Ghost in the Shell focuses on a crisis of the human soul, hastened by the unchecked use of technology that threatens to make humankind’s default biological housing obsolete.

The original anime film questioned what it meant to be human in a time when consciousness can live outside the body and memories are subject to editing and manipulation.

Although, real fans of the iconic manga are hating this Hollywood adaptation, I actually enjoyed the film. 

The beginning was a bit boring, but it got better afterwards. 

 
What I really loved was the beautiful imagery.

I’m a visual creature and I appreciated that.
