All geeky encompassing news.
In an interview with Hero Complex, Christopher Nolan has revealed the title of the third Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises,” set to be released in 2012. Another piece of news he let slip was the film will not be shot in 3D but in 2D, with additional assistance from IMAX cameras and HD approaches. The best piece of news was his confirmation that the Riddler will not be the villain in the film. No word on who it will be. I say “best” because that puts to rest the rumors of Johnny Depp playing the Riddler, a casting choice that I believe would have been the biggest mistake. Depp is no longer a character actor and he would not be believable. So there you have it. Thoughts?
After six years, the relationship between Lois and Clark has reached a point that took the comics 60-odd years to reach. More on that later.
So with “Isis,” we get a mixture of humor and heart: Lois rehearsing how she is going to tell Clark she knows his secret, Clark deciding to tell his secret. Oliver has to deal with becoming a caricature of himself and Tess embraces her role as a “mother.” The myth of Isis and Osiris that was introduced in the second episode ,”Shield,” returns along with Cat Grant.
In “The Prisoner of Azkaban,” a dangerous criminal has escaped and many believe he is heading toward Hogwarts to finish the job of killing Harry Potter. Or so we think. Sirius Black, played brilliantly by Gary Oldman, is in fact not the murderer. He seeks revenge on someone else, someone he and his friend, Remus Lupin, believed to be dead: Ron’s rat, Scabbers.
This movie took things to the next level and showed what can be done with a new director. Alfonso Cuaron took over and in doing so allowed the actors to grow in their roles and bring small traits to their characters, to make them believable. One theme that was focused on was legacy.
Last week’s episode was quite the shocker for fans, you could say the roof is on fire in the Supernatural fandom and theories are flying around. After Sam smirked his little smirk of evil instead of helping Dean, everybody only wants to know one truth: What is wrong with Sam? ‘The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth’.
How I missed Supernatural’s vampires. Fangs, blood and decapitations. ‘Blood lust’ (season 2) and ‘Fresh blood’ (season 3) were amazing but ‘Live Free or Twihard’ is definitely my new favorite vampire episode. A great ‘Twilight’ spoof, vampire Dean and drama between the Winchester brothers, what can a female Supernatural fan desire more? OK, maybe Castiel, Classic Rock and shirtless Sam but in a perfect world ‘Supernatural’ would be an hour long, have an unlimited budget and be on HBO with even more gore and blood. A little tip for the people of Mystic Falls (The Vampire diaries) if vampires give you trouble, you should call Dean Winchester – the new vampire slayer on TV, just saying. And be careful, if you’re young, beautiful and look like somebody from the ‘Twilight’ movies, they’re vampires out to get you!
