DC UPDATE: The Dark Knight Rises

Alright, I just got home from The Dark Knight Rises. This is listed as a DC Update instead of a movie review because I'm not going to review this movie. At least, not yet. Due to the nature of the movie I can not effectively review it without giving away sensitive information. This movie does not translate to my spoiler free review policy. To that end, I am going to delay my review for one week. A week from this monday I will post my review for all to read. You have until then to see the movie.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Amazing Spider-Man

Hey, Botophiles! Sorry I've been a little lax in my duties lately. I missed Battleship and Prometheus due to starting a new job with a little more future than my last job and it's been a crazy couple months. But, I should be back on my game now. And what better way to return than with a new comic book movie? I can't think of one. Well, yes I could. The Dark Knight Rises would have been better. Unfortunately, though, my first review back is going to have to be luke-warm at best. Yes, friends, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man's newest theatrical outing is a little disappointing and it leaves the viewer somewhat cold. It looks absolutely stunning, and it makes the best use of the 3D format I've seen to date. However, it's kind of like going out on a first date with a super hot girl only to find out she's got no personality. Sure, she's pretty to look at and she gets your motor running, but the moment she opens her mouth you just want to look her in the eye and tell her that less is more.

February 3rd marks the opening of Chronicle, the first of what is shaping up to be a great year for science fiction movies. We've got a third and final outing for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight, the return of Agents Kay and Jay and the debut of the very first comic book superhero All-Star film in Marvel's The Avengers, possibly the most anticipated film in this year's summer movie season. Join me as we take a look at this year's science fiction movies and discuss what has potential and what will probably fall flat.
