The Best and Worst Comic Book/Superhero Films

 batmanbegins bigcarryposter The Best and Worst Comic Book/Superhero Films

Top 10

1.  Batman Begins (the definitive Batman film with Christian Bale as the best ever Bruce Wayne/Batman, the film also has strong support all around, especially from Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and future star Cillian Murphy, who plays the creepy Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow)

2.  Spider-Man 2 (the best of the 3 Spidey films…..by far)

3.  Sin City (near perfect rendering of Frank Miller’s gritty graphic novel)

4.  The Crow (brooding goth classic with Brandon Lee’s final performance in a stylish-looking Blade Runner-esque Hell)

5.  V for Vendetta (The Wachowski Brothers surprisingly good adaption of Alan Moore’s graphic novel, with a …

Optimus Prime, ready for war

As a child of the 1980’s, one of my favorite animated shows was Transformers. My favorite was probably Masters of the Universe, and I put my Mom into credit card debt buying me the various figures and castles associated with the cartoon. While Masters of the Universe had a live action dud (I liked it for what it was though), Transformers is getting a spiffy, huge budget live action updated from the king of cusinart editing Michael Bay. Bay is like an action porn master, his films are all money shots, all the time. He may …

UFC 73 Predictions

UFC 73 Predictions

ufc logo UFC 73 Predictions

This event has some well known fighters and should be decent at best. Antonio “Minautoro” Nogueira will make his UFC debut and should impress the crowd. We have two title fights in Silva/Marquardt and Sherk/Franca. The best match of the night should be Ortiz/Evans. Here we go with my predictions:

Silva vs. Marquardt
Silva by tko in the second round. Marquardt’s training camp has been on a losing streak ever since Diego Sanchez lost and it will continue. Marquardt’s only chance of winning this match is a submission. Silva is still training with the Nog brothers in bjj and should be …

I’m so sad that Anime Expo is finally over.  It’s one of those events that I had such a blast because everybody there is into the same shit as you (that’s if you like anime of course.)  My Spartan cosplay outfit made it in time for AX 2007.  I had my 2 other friends, Andy and Steve, dressed up as Spartans with me on Friday.  One of them, Andy, I had drama with (long story, but let’s just say his brother Denny is a dipshit who would take his own brother’s girl), so it dropped to …

Got to the premiere around 6:30. We left Anaheim at 4 p.m. but thanks to miscommunication among the group, we got lost and suffered a very heavy traffic. They let us in around 7:20 and gave everyone a wristband who was 21 or older. The movie started around 8:20 and was transmitted by satellite. People cheered and laugh at the right places. The movie ended around 10:45 and got a big applause. Do you expect anything else from a Hollywood crowd?

As a fan of Transformers, I can’t refuse an opportunity to attend the Los Angeles premiere of Transformers. It was a red carpet event with stars abound. There was a life-size model of Bumblebee on the side of the red carpet.…

transformers Transformers Review   More Than Meets the Eye?

Before I review the movie, let me tell you that I am not a big Transformers’ fan. I never collected the figures, never watched the series but enjoyed the animated movie.

Last night, I was fortunate enough to attend the L.A.’s premiere. I will post some pics of the event later, including the afterparty (open bar and free food)!

What you see in the trailer is pretty much what you get in the movie. Michael Bay knew what the audience wanted and he delivers. I’m not going to describe the plot in detail but it is similar to the animated movie: …

matrix1 Circuity City Delivers   Yes Neo

Although Circuit City stores have crappy service with employees socializing amongst themselves and not helping you out, there e-commerce is a different creature. About 5 weeks ago, the store listed the Matrix Trilogy HD-DVD for $19.99, the retail price? $99.99 . I knew it was an error and placed an order. The total with standard shipping was $22.49. I was hoping they would ship the set but didn’t count on it. DVDtalk and AVSforum members were posting that Circuit City did indeed ship their sets, it gave me more hope.

Weeks passed and still no shipping confirmation but my order wasn’t …

300 Outfit: The Process of Making a Spartan Warrior

300 Outfit: The Process of Making a Spartan Warrior

There are 2 main important thing for me to be a Spartan.  The 1st one is the body(still working on that one =P), and the outfit.  It’s jam time for me since Anime Expo is in one more week.  A Spartan is no Spartan without his gear.  Each Spartan back then built their own armor and each would have their own unique style to it.  The most coolest thing about a Spartan would have to be the helm.

I started off with cardboard to shape the helm.

Coated it with fiberglass for toughness.
