X-Men: Days of Future Past Behind the Scenes (Article) - 4/3/2014 10:49:31 PM

Nice.

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/28/2014 1:00:55 PM

@axia777

Pardon me. Just so you know, those who are in Christ do not support ignorance and hateful belief systems either. Because God doesn't. We just agree with God about what is good and what is evil.

You do have the right to believe what you choose. I will treat you love and respect because that's what God would have me do. But I'm an intelligent, grown man and I don't believe in fairy tales.

I'm a Christian.

I was taken aback by the hateful language that Rob Vaux used to describe the Body of Christ. It's a generalization and it's not even accurate.

Christians are understandably troubled by the movie. Because they have a genuine relationship with God through Christ (which is biblical). Because they love God. Because the book of Genesis and every book in the bible points to the love and salvation in Jesus Christ. Because more people will be duped into agreeing with hate rhetoric against God who loves them. Because people will be confused. Because salvation in Christ is THE MOST IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP to have in this whole world and short-short existence in the world. 

That's not religion. That's not fundamentalist thinking. It's not even PC. It's just reality.

I'm not telling you not to see the movie, and I'm not telling you to get up in arms against the producers or against Rob Vaux. I only hope that it concerns you enough to pray. Because you love people. Because you want to honor God. I hope.

I just tried to read your entire review of Noah, but it was so full of vindictive language against Christians that I had to stop. I made another attempt, but I was only able to manage a scan of your work.

Look, I don't know what or where you get your opinion of Christians, and how you support it, but Christians are understandably irritated when a very important story in the bible is mangled into something else. I won't belabor why, and yes, Christians do know the Truth because God laid it all out in the bible (the information that is worth knowing now about Him and about eternity- who goes to hell and who goes to heaven. God laid that out too. So we're not in the dark).

I haven't seen Noah, and if I do see it and I see nothing that supports what God meant to say in Genesis, then naturally I'll be turned off by it. Because it's not for fiction's sake. It's for your salvation. For everyone. Every book in the bible points to salvation in Jesus Christ.

So here is one Christian who is not oppressing you, not being cowardly or hiding behind a mantle. Here is a Christian that unfortunately can not find a direct e-mail address and I have to settle for this. What you wrote is just as vicious, just as oppressive as some of the unfortunate and misled actions of some people who should know better. But they're still going to heaven by the free gift of salvation found in Christ alone. Not because we're better. But because we realize that we're NOT better. No one is.

And all of that is spoken in the bible from Genesis and on.

Now if there be any hatred to be given to me, any jokes at my expense, well then so be it.

Wolverine Sequel to Follow X-Men: Days of Future Past (Article) - 3/16/2014 11:30:03 PM

I think another Wolverine sequel would be redundant.

I don't want to get gratuitously critical. I saw The Wolverine twice over the weekend and I liked it better than X-Men Origins..., but it was just a little better. The melodrama kept messing it up for me. They were trying to make an engaging movie using the Japanese book and Logan hiding and broken. That was the hook for me. It just seemed like none of the characters ever engaged with each other long enough to engage. It was almost a vanity showcase for each actor.

For example: I loved Rila Fukushima who played Yukio. She's adorable! But those scenes where she's weeping for Logan... I mean, why? Plus, her character in the comic book is not a precognitive mutant.

I think that Hugh Jackman and James Mangold sincerely wanted to make a great movie. It's a difficult process with a lot of pressure. But I don't think another Wolverine will be that much different from the last two.

@Roqueja

But how will that happen? Spider-Man, Hawkeye, Hulk and Thor are at other studios. Old Man Logan is a book that reflects what happened to him and his fellow superheroes. A movie without the reference of these other heroes would be hollow and not really great. Fox only has Fantastic Four and X-Men. Who will Logan fight in the end if not Hulk? The Thing?

Marvel VS. DC: May 6th, 2016 (Article) - 3/13/2014 6:44:07 PM

I am absolutely rooting for DC. They're the underdog now. Unpopular casting decisions and the Flash's costume looks a little underwhelming. I'm still hoping they'll get it together and take their material seriously. Someone needs to be appointed with a vision and pull this together. DC's version of Kevin Feige.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: T.A.H.I.T.I. Review (Article) - 3/6/2014 2:50:53 PM

I didn't like that Coulson and his team shot and killed S.H.I.E.L.D. agents at the Guest House, when in the past they used stun weapons for past confrontations. And the beating that Melinda May gave Ian Quinn took points away for me. I'm not a prude, but I'm not feeling the whole abusing-my-power-because-I-can-and-because-my-emotions-justify-it thing. When people celebrate that, I get uncomfortable. 

I love what Marvel is doing, despite the haters. But kill fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agents without conscience and show an incapacitated blue man in a tube and everyone raves, "GOOD, STRONG SHOW!" What a strange and kind of ugly response.  

They've all been good shows. T.A.H.I.T.I. was a great show, but it felt a little... out-of-character.

Looking forward to Lady Sif and Lorelei meeting Coulson.

Ghostbusters 3 Script to be Re-Worked (Article) - 2/27/2014 12:44:03 PM

Reboot Ghostbusters?

Some movies are just classic. Reboot it maybe 40 years from now when no one remembers or cares. Bill Murray and the gang set the tone. A reboot would be a hollow embarrassment.
