August 23, 2013 3:10 pm I think Ben Affleck could totally play Batman. I just have no interest in spending any more time in the DC Universe as interpreted by David Goyer and Zack Snyder. In fact, I'll go one further: I've had enough of Batman and Superman for a while, give me something different.
Seriously, next year we're going to have a movie starring GROOT AND ROCKET RACCOON and by the time "Batman Punch Superman" comes out we'll have the second Avengers movie. While neither Marvel nor DC has made a solo female superhero movie yet, I'd wager a "Black Widow," "Spider Woman," or "Captain Marvel" movie will come out at least five years before "Wonder Woman."
And honestly, now that Marvel Studios has the rights to "Daredevil," "Ghost Rider," "Punisher," and "Blade," I think they might soon be able to beat DC at the "dark and gritty" game DC is hell-bent on playing.
August 20, 2013 10:15 am This list must have originated in some strange parallel universe where R. Kelly is superior to Prince. Unless you're comparing their height. R. Kelly is almost a full foot taller than '"The Kid."

2. Coke vs. Pepsi: RC Cola (moon pie optional).
3. Religious Belief: Different strokes for different folks.
4. Sexual orientation: See #3.
5. Politics: Let's meet half-way.
Settled! Glad we're all in agreement.
August 18, 2013 12:55 am I wasn't planning on seeing "Kick Ass 2." No Matthew Vaughan, no Nicolas Cage, and no Mark Strong. Nothing in the trailers seemed to suggest it was much better than an a Direct-to-DVD sequel and on top of that, did anyone actually like "Kick Ass 2" the comic? However, tonight, I wanted to see a movie and the timing worked out, so I figured I'd give it a shot. And, like the first film, it's surprisingly good. It's significantly scaled down but writer/director Jeff Wadlow keeps things moving and gets solid performances out of everyone that you only notice during the handful of greenscreen sequences. I also think that he also made the Motherf*cker more interesting by making him "less extreme" and actually squeamish about things that the audience is squeamish about and choosing to focus on gory, gross mayhem in lieu of brutality. That and absurd details like the fact that in the Motherf*cer's evil secret lair they serve Frapaccinos in the VIP room or Hit Girl's overflowing swear jar. Finally, as good as Chloe Grace Moretz and Jim Carrey are in this, I think Olga Kurkulina steals the show as Mother Russia. Her one-woman stand off with the cops was awesome and the fact is that you don't see a female heavy too often. It's far from perfect and it's not as good as the original, but it is far better than I expected.
August 1, 2013 9:06 pm Yeah...I was just trying to find examples of boroughs/places that Mario, who I always saw as a proud Brooklynite from like Brighton Beach, Bay Ridge, or Bensonhurst, would be more likely to hate on. In doing so, I trolled and I apologize. I've been to many nice parts of both Queens and Jersey and agree 100% with phess1's appraisal of Hipster Brooklyn.
August 1, 2013 10:23 am Mario and Luigi are from Brooklyn: http://www.mariowiki.com/Brooklyn. It would make sense if he was talking about Queens or Jersey, but this just seems like the work of a writer who didn't do his homework. The painterly artwork on the other hand is great.
