The Incredible Hulk

Fan Film Friday: Superman Vs. Hulk

I'll be honest with you, I'm not a fan of the convention that when superheroes meet for the first time, they must fight. This is especially true of inter-company crossovers. It's boring, it's annoying, it's frequently out of character and it has a host of other problems.

However, there is Michael Habjan's "Superman Vs. Hulk". There is no plot. There is very little characterization. There IS, however, some extremely watchable homebrew CGI. What makes this fascinating, is that you can see the progression in Mr. Habjan's skills as he posts new segments.

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.

MOVIE REVIEW: The Avengers

Ok, here we are, The Avengers. Director Joss Whedon's culmination of everything Marvel Studios has been working toward for the past five years, since 2007's Iron Man ended with a cameo in which Nick Fury offered to Iron Man membership into something called the Avenger Initiative. The Avengers, or Avengers Assemble as it's being called in the UK, presumably to distinguish it from the 60's British television series and 90's movie of the same name, currently holds a 94% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and is being touted as the comic book movie of the year, and quite possibly the decade. By the end of its opening weekend it has beaten out Harry Potter for the opening weekend sales record by more than $30M. So what did I think of The Avengers? I could sum it all up in a single word: disappointing.
