Bryan’s 10 Most Anticipated Films – 2013

star-trek-into-darkness-benedict-cumberbatch

I like treks and robots fighting monsters and steel men as much as the next guy. But when it comes to making this list, I want to see other things a tad bit more. There’s a lot to look forward to but if you told me I could only see 10 new films this year, well the following would be my picks. Continue reading

The Trouble with Quibbles: The Avengers

[Editor’s note: Unlike Nate & Rosko, I have yet so see The Avengers. As such, in an effort to avoid ginormous spoilers, they’ve used the codename “Swayze” to refer to major plot point without actually giving it away. Beyond that, I would hardly call anything in this Quibble an actual spoiler, but they have highlighted a couple of points where they feel some might complain.]

As we wrap up our Earth’s Mightiest Decade series, Rosko and I finally sit down to discuss what we see as ten years worth of work.  Is The Avengers truly the culmination of everything that has come before it? In the film, Nick Fury finally gathers earth’s mightiest heroes together to form the Avengers and fight Loki’s army. Is it the apex of an era or the next stage in the evolution of comic book adaptation? Rosko and I will try to breakdown the future of Joss Whedon, Walt Disney Pictures, and the ending that will have every geek talking for the next two years Continue reading

Super Soldier – “Captain America: The First Avenger” Review

Chris Evans has done it. He finally won me over. Now he is starring in his very own summer-comic-book-blockbuster and it’s a blast. Thankfully for the uninitiated, like me, Captain America: The First Avenger doesn’t have any prerequisites. Fans and non-fans alike will find themselves cheering on this hero. Continue reading

Opening Weekend: You and the Captain can make it happen

Finally, Captain America hits the big screen and Friends with Benefits examines a little-known anthropological phenomenon: apparently, sex complicates things. Continue reading

“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” Review: Don’t push play, press start.

Finally. A good video game movie.

Since the dawn of the days of button-mashing, there has yet to be a great film based around video games. Sure, there have been adaptations of various games, and films that have incorporated video games into the story (like Tron or The Last Starfigher), but today marks the day that a film has come around to deliver the video game experience within the context of a movie. Continue reading

Review: The Losers

The Losers is yet another mediocre addition to the detritus of lackluster action films of late. It’s by no means amazing, but it isn’t altogether awful either. It’s just kinda “blah.” And I don’t feel that I’m asking too much of action movies. I’m a fan of mindless, violent action. I grew up watching Sly, Arnie, & Bruce kicking ass and taking names. And I loved almost every minute of it, still do. Continue reading
