I was talking about the upcoming superhero movies with my sister and found some troubling thoughts about The Dark Knight Rises.
I’m looking forward to it, sure, but I really fear that it will be just an “ok”-movie. Everyone gave a tremendous praise to the previous one and I’m fearing that the hype can’t carry on. It’s going to be the last one of the Nolan’s Batman movies and shit is really going to hit the fan. Although I’m not expecting a “best superhero-movie evarrr” movie, I’m still worried that I’ll be dissapointed. And I don’t know why, Bane is there and I love his character (and hate his personification in Batman & Robin..), Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman are always great but something still nags at the back of my head. I hope the movie will be shorter than 2 hours, The Dark Knight was 30 minutes too long.
And then there is The Avengers. It has gotten far more hype and everyone and their mother are reblogging the trailers, tv-spots and so on. Funny thing is, that I’m not expecting anything special in this one either - but I know I won’t be too dissapointed. Even if the plot is crippled or there are too many characters (which I think there are), I’m probably still going to enjoy the hell out of it. I loved the two Iron Man movies, I thought that Thor was a good movie and I loved Thor as a character, Captain America movie suprised me with it’s good value and I’m really looking forward to hear Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk. It’s probably going to be a stupid action movie, that that’s exactly what I want.
I’m also hyped for the reboot of Spiderman. The previous movies had a lot of good moments and Spiderman was one of my favorite characters as a child. I love the character itself and Tobey wasn’t really the Spiderman I wanted. This looks more promising and The Lizard seems awesome. I just hope that they don’t hold back humor, because Spiderman (at least in my case) should be a wise-cracking character. It can be a serious movie and it really should be more serious than the other movies, but don’t Dark Knight on us, please!
I really should be sleeping. I’m tired but I can’t sleep. I’m feeling so much raw inspiration now, I want to start writing novels and stories and blogs and pretty much everything. But I have to be up at 7. am, which is in 5 hours. Man, I hate my brain. Why can’t you give me inspiration when I’m struggling to write on more sensible hours?
I could try reading, I just got three new Dexter books, but then I’ll stay up even longer.
First World Problems coming up!
Fantasy and Microchips: Noah Acts Like A Giant Asshole
“Honestly, after the messages he wrote today on Twitter, I fully think Noah Antwiler is completely psychotic. I also think the guy acts like a giant asshole. I did not even have the opposite opinion of him, but the crazy lengths he went to crossed the line…
Nice to see that I’m not alone. I went to Spoony’s twitter yesterday in hopes for finding out what kind of videos are coming soon. And man, it was really bad. He really seems like a prick.
I’m hoping that he only seems like that, fanboys can be really really annoying and I can imagine myself on the same situation. But he run’s a site which runs by people coming back and that kind of behaviour isn’t good publicity.
But Noah has a dark sense of humor and uses sarcasm heavily, maybe that “cocaine”-line was one of those things. I hope Noah stops arguing with the fanboys, everyone is entitled with their opinions and if people hated Mass Effect’s ending, that isn’t really a time to get pissed off.
It’s either this one, the one with woman driven over and Horatio asking why was the killer driving in the kitchen or the one with the suffocated woman with semen in her throat. Horatio responds that truth is always hard to swallow.
Man, I’m a jerk.
Broing out tonight!
I have been reaaaally lazy with my tumblr recently and I’m not promising an improvement. If I promise to update more often, I probably won’t.
But tonight! My awesome friend, whiskey, cigars and videogames. I can feel the hangover already, but who cares!
Bram Stoker’s Dracula was one of the first ‘real’ books I ever read and I love it (and the movie too). So seeing this and reading the “I just pictured it to be more like twilight” makes me really sad.
Would this fucking vampire fad end already, please?
