Movies that Define Us

Posted by Shane

We all have our ways of getting to know ourself better or to understand the more subtleties of life itself. My niche (like Baseball… a game of tendencies and situations) is movies. I can look at all the movies I own and look back to see why I liked them and also on what they all mean to me.

For some people its music. For other’s its books. And for even some people they find themselves in TV. No matter what we cling on to its something that defines us and tells others what type of person we are.

Tonight I came back from Going the Distance. A movie I highly recommended. Because it’s not about the time spent with the other person, it’s about going the distance to make it work out no matter what.

Rating: 10 out of 10.


Iron Man 2, Wowzers!

Posted by Shane

FYI.. if you do not know what ‘Wowzers’ is… you need to watch some Inpector Gadet. In any case, the movie was great. It picked up right where the first one left off and it was a non-stop action pack and it also had a pretty good story line as well. The comdey value in this one was much better in this one than the last one, however so this movie already does good in my books.

The only thing I am disappointed in is that Terrance Howard was not War Machine. Studios gotta realize that people love seeing continuity in movies and not having the same actor or actress in their respective roles makes a huge difference. If you go see this movie, you must wait until after the credits. Just like the first one, there is something directly after the credits are over.


I am all Avatar’ed out.

Posted by Shane

Today was the final time that I will see Avatar in the theater. I have seen it a total of 4 times — one time being by myself and the other in a non-IMAX theater. The next time I will see this movie is when it gets the awards for Best Picture, Best Special Effects, and Best Director at this years Awards Ceremony and then on Bluray.


Updated ‘Movie List’

Posted by Shane

Straight from this post:

  1. Batman 3
  2. Green Lantern (Live Action!)
  3. Jonah Hex

So far from the original list I seen ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra‘. Yeah. Lame. (Click “Lame” to see my lame review.) So that’s three D.C. comics. Where is the Marvel movies?

Well… only Iron Man, Spiderman, and X-Men exist in my world. I will see the other Spiderman movies now that I have confirmed that Toby will be back to be the web crusader once more.

What’s with all the movie news? Well.. this is the time of year the the studios gear up for filming because the summer is winding down. For next time…. later!


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.
