“With Marvel showing up DC at the box office, Man of Steel better make lots of money if the other members of the Justice League stand a chance of having their shot on the big screen, and Wonder Woman is not going to take it lying down.”
There’s a whole lot of pressure on “Man of Steel”. In fact, the weight of the entire DC universe rests squarely on Henry Cavill’s steel shoulders. So a group of some of the most talented actors and musicians came together to make a hilarious music video to explore all of DC’s past attempts -for good or for ill- to make it off the page and onto the screen.
Tony Stark returns to his life after the events of the Avengers, but things aren’t quite the same when The Mandarin comes calling on Iron Man. As the Marvel cinematic universe grows in Phase 2, it’ll be more and more interesting to see the reasons our heroes come together in movies like Avengers but stay separate in their stand alone films, and this is the first chance to see just how Marvel does it.
At least, not when it comes to Judge Dredd. As far as we’re concerned, Karl Urban is the law. Thanks to a pitch-perfect R-rated action film, Judge Dredd has finally made it to the screen in a way that is true to the comics that he first appeared in. Brutal, unflinching, and tough as nails, Dredd NEVER takes his helmet off in the film, and Matt was giddy as has was when he was 11 years old and reading his first 2000 A.D. Without any frame of reference but Sly’s miserable turn in the role in 1995, Nat definitely enjoyed the movie, while not on the level Matt did. What did you think? Let us know!
In an attempt to simultaneously capitalize on a long-running, brilliant UK comic, the superhero-movie craze, and the movie-going audience’s apparent tolerance for reboots, we’ve got a new Judge Dredd movie on our hands. With the always-awesome Karl Urban on board as the man himself, and rumours that he never (rightly) takes the helmet off, a 2000 A.D.-loving Matt is already seeing hope for this indie, but Nat has no frame of reference for Judge Dredd other than Sly’s abysmal 1995 turn in the role.
It takes 3 entire hours to piss on Batman Begins, No Man’s Land, Knightfall, Knightquest and Knightsend. PLUS Batman only shows up twice in it… and we’re just warming up! Watch the review to get Matt’s entire tirade.

A Spider-Man Movie with no Tobey Maguire? You’ve got Nat’s interest. No Snaggletooth as Mary Jane? Alright, Matt’s on board too. Sony reboots the web-head with a villain we never really got to see in Sam Raimi’s trilogy (a page out of Nolan’s book?), and a love interest that was drastically mishandled in Spider-Man 3. With an emphasis on the mysterious disappearance of the Parkers and Peter’s destiny, The Amazing Spider-Man actually looks pretty good, despite being a too-soon-to-make-sense reboot. But Marvel characters do that a lot, don’t they?
We were both completely bloody beside ourselves watching the single greatest comic book movie ever made (Nolan who?). But even in Joss’ near perfect comicbook movie with it’s 200M opening weekend, we had a few nits to pick here and there… but hey, we’re geeks!
