The Batman: New Director, New Script plans for 2019 Release 

  Director of the upcoming Batman film announced that the movie is getting a completely new script. This means that the previous script written by Ben Alfleck has been completely scrapped.

   The movie seemed to be in serious trouble previously when Alfleck announced that he was no longer directing the project. It’s seemed to get even worse when rumors started to fly that Alfleck wanted out of the film. Things eventually seemed to get better as Matt Reeves was announced as the new director.

   

The big question is now that the script has been scrapped how will this effect the D.C. Cinematic universe? Even more importantly what does this mean for Joe Manganiello playing Deathstoke?  With the Nior feel that Reeves is going for is Deathstoke even feasible for this film? Hopefully all these questions will be answered before the planned 2019 release of the film.

Jason Bourne Review

Has the World changed too much for Bourne?


Jason Bourne marks the return of the Matt Damon to the role that made him an action superstar 14 years ago.  This is also the first film since the Jeremy Renner the Bourne Legacy which was a semi reboot. With that film not being held in the same regards as the previous films it’s only natural that the series returned to its roots. So much has changed in that time and with the rise and dominance of superhero films, does the world still need a Jason Bourne film.

    While its not as as good as the previous films this film still lives up to the Bourne name. The plot is simple as it picks up twelve years after The last film with Bourne having most of his memory and in hiding. But someone from his past brings him information that brings him back into action. An action it is as the movie is full of great set pieces. From the thrilling chase in Greece during a riot to the epic high speed chase in Vegas, each set piece serves a purpose to the plot. Matt Damon also shines in the role as it seems like he never left.

  Tommy Lee Jones also does an excellent job as Robert Dewey, the current director of the CIA .  Also new to the cast is Alicia    Vikander as Heather Lee, a CIA agent working in the Cyber Ops division. It was interesting watching Bourne being chased in this Cyber influence world were everywhere has cameras. It gave the movie a very Person of Interest feel. My only knock on the movie is that the plot felt a little bit forced and predictable. Also while the action scenes were very good, we live in a post Daredevil and Winter Soldier world were the scenes are not as groundbreaking as they were during the original trilogy.  Overall, a very solid entry in the series and hopefully the start of a new trilogy.

Score 7.5 out of 10


DC Animated A Killing Joke Review

The Jokes on Us


     The original Killing Joke written by Alan Moore is considered by many to be a classic. The  quintessential Joker story that both manages to show Joker at not only at his most sadistic but also at his most tragic. The story at its core was so dark it didn’t seem likely that it would be adapted into a movie. So it became a big surprise to everyone when Warner Bros announced that it was being to be adapted into a R rated animated movie. It was also a pleasant surprise that some of the cast from Batman the Animated Series returned to play the roles they made famous. 

     With a cast that includes Mark Hamil, Tara Strong and Kevin Conroy this movie could not fail right?  Unfortunately not even there acting abilities can’t save the fundamental flaws with this movie. One of the flaws in the movie is the voice acting. With the exception of the formentioned actors everyone else ranged from OK to horrible. In particular the voice of Bullock which is almost laughable.

     

  The biggest problem with the movie is the portrayal of Batgirl. One of the complaints about the original graphic novel is the role Barbara Gordan plays in the story. To remedy this a another story arc was added to flesh out her side of the story. Unfortunately this side story does not work and in some ways even hurts the story. In trying to tell a story of  empowerment for Batgirl it came off more like a story of a girl who does nothing but depend on the men in her life. Her interactions with her male counterparts just don’t work. It’s a sharp contrast to the more independent Batgirl we see in the comics.

  For the most most part the Killing Joke is a Joker story.  Fortunately, that part of the story works very well.  Mark Hamill is as excellent as always in the role of the Joker. At times in the movie he goes from a completely vile character to a very sympathetic character. On the opposite side of the spectrum Kevin Conroy ‘s  stoic demeanor is very fitting for the movie. While it doesn’t feel quite like BTAS it gets close at times. Overall A Killing Joke is a good effort to bring to life a classic but it may have been better to leave this one in its original format.

Score 6.0 out of 10

Star Wars The Force Awakens spoiler free review

The Force is strong with this one

  

  Let me start off by saying not only does the Force Awakens surpass the prequel movies but it’s on par (and in some cases surpasses) the originals.  What makes this movie excellent is that it has what we loved about the originals and builds an entirely new cast and story. 

      

   While the original cast is here, they take a backseat to the new cast. John Boyega is excellent as Finn as he brings a lot of character to the role. He is not the typical hero as he is the everyday man that may be in over his head.  Oscar Issac as Poe Dameron was also exceptional even with the limited screen time. But the star of the movie is Daisy Ridley. She was amazing in the role that seemed destined for.

  

   No Star Wars movie isn’t complete  without the bad guys and this one doesn’t disappoint. One of the things that is noticeable about this movie was that Stormtrooper’s  felt like a threat. From the heinous act committed in the beginning of the movie right down to the final scenes they mattered. Captain Phasma was also a cool edition to the movie but her screen time was way too little. The same goes for Emperor Snoke, the big bad felt out of place in some scenes feeling more Harry Potter than Star Wars. Then there Kylo Ren. The big bad of the movie who was played by Adam Driver. Ren was amazing not because he was imposing but because he was an unhinged broken character with a past that would be very interesting to hear more about it.

    With beautiful visuals and lust diverse worlds, this is the Star Wars we have been waiting for. This is the movie that will not only bring in the original fans but also usher in a new generation of fans who care enough to take their kids to see the upcoming movies.

Score 9.7 out of 10
