Batman in 100% IMAX

Posted by Shane

Following one of my favorite movie site for insights on future and current movies, I got word that the new Batman movie is being considered for 100% IMAX filming.

If anyone remembers the Dark Knight bank robbery scene at that start of the movie and how “full” of action it was that’s the kinda of movie.

If this were true, I place my order for my 12:01 showing at our local theater right now. Filming it in IMAX would take a extra year according to the site because the IMAX camera is huge and very bulky for any cameraman.

We will see.

I recently got and saw this movie. It’s an animated movie featuring around of course the Green Lantern, Hal Jordon. Just like it’s two counterparts, Batman: Gotham Knights and Wonder Women two other animated features by DC comics, this one was just as good as the other two.

All three movies have the ‘real’ cartoon look with many of the cartoon enhancements that Justice League Unlimited had in the ending of the series. The character animation was superb. Without realizing that I never posted a review on the Wonder Women animated film, going to do them both right now.

I watched G.I. Joe last night. I liked it a lot, but the film could have used better acting. A lot of the lines were cookie cut from the comics which are good for comics. Not movies since they are supposed to be free-following dialog between the characters.

Dennis Quad, who plays General Hawk, lines where very “stale” and had no “meaning” to them. Other than that the movie was good. The cinematography seems like it was also not fluid. Now like every comic movie, the movie did set it self up for more squeals, but the overall film could have been done better.

Oh yeah. The women in this movie were just HOT! Rachel Nichols and Sienna Miller can come haunt me anytime. :)

Rating: 7 out of 10. / Women Rating: Off the charts!

I wish I could go to Comic-Con every year, but it is on the WRONG side of the country. ‘Iron Man 2’ sneak peak was shown and it would have been great to see it live with the actors in the room.

It comes out May 2010. The usual time for movies that I want to see comes in May close to or after my birthday.

Movies coming out that I want to see very badly (even if I have to go to the midnight showing):

(No order…)

  1. Iron Man 2
  2. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
  3. A Christmas Carol
  4. Sherlock Holmes

Benjamin Button is another movie I just watched. After bashing the movie on the Battlestar Forum and since my sister had to watch it for a class, I watched it at the same time. The first movie that I thought of that compares to this is Big Fish. Where the son of a dying old man tells his story of his adventures as the movies flashes back to his life on his adventures.

So what compares with this on is that Brad Pitt character goes from older in a young mans body to and old person in a young body while the girl he met is on her death bed with her grand daughter. The girl in the death bed is played by her “younger” self in the flashbacks. The movie explorers the dynamics between how people view people at an old age vs. young age.

I truly doubted the movies characteristics. This movie was really good. Very moving.

It’s been a while since I seen X-Men: Orgins and T4: Salvation is it. While both movies were interesting, they both had a nice story line as well, but T4 in this case wins when it comes to continuity.

In X-Men they make it so Wolverine and Sabertooth are brothers. I do not remember that anywhere in the comics or in the previous three movies. I did like however how they put together the background process of them putting the adamantium metal into his body along from where it came from. Otherwise the movie action was fine.

X-Men Rating: 5.5 out of 10.

If you remember Bale’s rant, you would actually agree with him. While the movie was O.K. the dialog and the plot derived from the previous 3 movies played a huge part. Most of the common theme in this movie was christianity. It was very different and I think too moderized. We all loved the looks of the first 3.

T4 Rating: 6 out of 10.
