Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice Early Review! Warning: Spoilers!!!

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
Early Review

Warning! Contains spoilers!

By Chongchen Saelee

Don’t get me wrong, I went into Batman V Superman blindly with low expectations and I think it was super. I thought “Man of Steel” was satisfactory, but it wasn’t anything that was epic or memorable, other than the fact it was the biggest and most interesting interpretation of the Superman lore to date. Given time, even these darker more realistic phases will pass, and descendants of comic book movie fans will see it as a sign of the times. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a thrilling piece of entertainment for now. (more…)

Godzilla (2014) Tries Really Hard To Be An American Movie

By Chongchen Saelee

Gareth Edwards is a talented director if you’ve just learned that this is only his second major motion picture. But I being a heavy consumer of all-things American, I spotted too much of the same-o-same-o to really be too impressed. (more…)

Scarlett Johansson’s Vagina, Under The Skin, and Exploitation of Ugly Adam

By Chongchen Saelee

I think “Under The Skin” may be quite overrated. If you’ve seen “Life Force”, you’ll get the same kind of pomp and hardcore sci-fi. If you want more titilation, then watch the “Species” franchise. I don’t doubt “Under The Skin” having some cool artsy sequences, but it’s possible it can become blase, if it isn’t already. No one comes up with anything new anymore. The fact that you get presented with an eyeball in an extended camera pull back should be enough clue, it’s done to death. (more…)

Batman vs Superman Looking for Extras in Michigan

http://batman-news.com/2014/03/28/be-an-extra-in-batman-vs-superman-in-detroit-michigan/

Wow! Here’s my chance again to be in a major motion picture. I live right next to Michigan in Wisconsin. And my schedule is kinda open. Anyway, they’re looking for clean cut military and law enforcement types. Must be a dystopian Gotham City montage or something. I imagine something like Stephen King’s “The Mist” with a bunch of armed dudes running through the streets of Gotham. Batman is black smokey mist lingering in the shadows.

Well, if this casting call is real, good luck to all you aspiring actors!!!

How I Would Adapt Jonny Quest for Live Action Film

By Chongchen Saelee

Everyone who grew up on some incarnation of Jonny Quest loves the appeal of being the bad-ass boy of the hour. You don’t want to be Robin because he just can’t outweigh Batman as the sidekick. Jonny Quest, however, although technically still the sidekick to his scientist father and Rick Bannon, is actually the main focus and star of his own show. If you’re a young kid watching this, you don’t feel left out.

And I’m sure Hollywood knows this is a good property to adapt for live-action. They’ve tried it. At one point, “High School Musical” star Zak Efron was attached to play Jonny Quest, but then he became a man, so no more of that.

If Jonny Quest is just James Bond, Jr., I say do it like a Bond movie then. Very serious tone. No dumbing it down for kids like Roberto Rodriguez would do (even though his Spy Kids franchise is relatively successful). (more…)
