I am a superhero junkie. Moderately. I love the SpiderMan movies. I want to see number 3. I just saw the trailer. The villains are Thomas Haden Church (or as I told mom "Lyle" from George of the Jungle) and *swoon* Topher Grace. Thomas Haden Church is playing Sandman and Topher Grace is playing Venom. Venom has always been my favorite villain, even before Topher took the role. The role is just better now.
Also on my list is the new Harry Potter. The fifth book, The Order of the Phoenix, is by far my favorite of all of them. It's very good. Also on the subject of Harry, the new book, The Deathly Hallows, is coming out on July 21. The movie is coming out (in theaters) on July 13. I won't see it in theaters, but most likely my friends who will go and see it will spoil all the special effects and good parts for me, so I count it as close enough. Plus, I'm sure Ms. Rowling doesn't mind the two products coming out so close to each other. It means bukoo bucks for her.
I was watching something somewhere with a late night talk guy who was talking about Ghost Rider. This movie looks fruity to me. I have never really been fond of Nicholas Cage, so that's a downer. Plus, it seems like a Fantastic 4/Spiderman rip-off.The guy bursts into flames (which apparently doesn't hurt him like the poor Grey's Anatomy bomb guy), in Johnny Storm/The Human Torch style when ever danger is near. Just. Like. Spidey. That's original.
On the subject of Fantastic Four, there's a new one of those coming out. Yippee. I didn't really like the movie and I don't know of anything to make fun of, so moving on.
Onto the movies I will never watch.
Hannibal Rising. My friend, Nikki, who loves stuff like this went to see it with her brother and decided to tell me the whole story, since it is "R" and I have no desire to watch the biography of a crazy cannibal man. Pretty much, it's a freakish movie where Hannibal's whole family except for his sister, Mischa, gets killed. And then Mischa gets eaten. And Hannibal goes postal. And some crazy violent action ensues. There you go, I just saved you about 2 hours. The critics rated it a D. Nikki gave it an A-. Yahoo! users give it a B-.
I think that's about all for now.
