Review: The Dark Knight Rises (Movie, 2012)

(insert stupid pun about bats here)

Hey y’all. Despite saying I don’t like movie reviews, this is already the second one I’m doing, in such a short time. I guess I just don’t have the time lately to play games I could review. So instead, I watch movies. Right now, I watched the new Nolan Bats in theater, because I wanted to see what all the fuss is about. To be honest, I wasn’t really… looking forward to this movie, because I had a cold feeling it would be bastardizing the source material a lot. I began reading the comics (Detective Comics as well as Batman, but only a few spin-offs) long time after seeing the Burton and *almost throws up* Schumacher movies and some time before Batman Begins hit the big screen, and I had a hard time catching up to all the stuff that happened before, so maybe I’m not the right person to judge the… integrity of this movie. But that doesn’t keep me from adding my two cents. Because I love the comics (post-80s) for my very own reasons. You know what? I should just shut up and review the movie already.

Review: John Carter (Movie, 2012)

SCIE- Wait, I already pulled that one. Heh, ‘pull’, get it? It’s a wordplay because both times were about gravity. And gravity… pulls. It pulls. Like I did just now. (I know, I’m always so witty.)

Hey y’all. Did you ever see a movie poster and thought something along the lines of, “I don’t even know what that is, why should I watch it”, did you? I certainly did with this movie, John Carter. I didn’t even catch sight of a trailer until much later. And of course I didn’t watch it in theaters back then. Biggest. Mistake. Ever. So now that I watched it on DVD (how nostalgic), I want to write a review about it. That, and because my co-writer DumbassBadassDemonlord down there did one. Personally I don’t like writing reviews about movies very much because movies… are something you either like or don’t. It’s hard to tell if a movie is good or bad. Sure, there are really crappy productions that can be at least judged in their quality, but when it comes to pacing, storytelling and characters, it really depends on the person that’s watching the movie.

Then, why am I really doing this if it serves no purpose, because you only know if you like a movie when you really watched it? For exactly that reason. I want to make you watch it. That’s my goal. Even if you’re just a bypasser, as long as I can bring you to watch this movie, I achieved my goal with this review, regardless of whether you liked the movie or not.  Oh, and I didn’t read the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs that this film is based on. I didn’t even know he created Tarzan until now. I’m just saying that I can’t say if it’s well adapted or not, so if you’re a fan, look somewhere else. Shoo!

Am I going to take this seriously? Oh, hell no. I want to have fun too.
