Name: Cory Baker

Bio: Videographer, digital artist, has psychic powers. One of those may not be true. I love comics, but I'm trying to maintain being an all around super nerd.



Please bear with me, as this is the first review I’ve written in some time. I’m so use to reading…

June 16, 2013 2:55 am I bought this and Birthright about a month ago. A lot of my comic book loving friends pick on me for loving Superman. The original Superman movie was one of my first movies, along with Star Wars, as a kid...but even moreso, I can point to this book as a reason why Superman can be fresh and poignant.
July 4, 2012 12:37 pm I really enjoyed it, probably my second favorite amongst the films. Do I have some minor quibbles? Of course, but I do think stronger characterization and and a fresh start over come those. I do think the biggest problem with this film is that it feels like a part, or a set-up, for the over arching story. Unlike Prometheus though, it suffers significantly less. Also, I think there may have been a slight over use of his powers at his school, breaking the backboard or denting the goal post, but that's just me. Was there supposed to be more to the Curt Connors story thread? I noticed the wedding ring and I think IMDB had a listing for his son at one point. I just think there was more of an opportunity to make him a tragic figure and earn his redemption, I guess. Anyway, glad to finally have my fun, quip-throwing Spider-Man. I hope Marc Webb get's to come back to the director's chair to see his full vision, directing style, and characterization, again.
August 29, 2011 11:06 pm I take a break from comics and the internet, in general, for the better part of this year and come back to this? As long as creators are trying and good stories are being presented, I guess I'll have to put this in the back of my mind. The big issue, for me, is trying to make sense of everything. Last time I read a comic book, Peter Parker was still USM, Bruce Wayne was just making his return, and everything looked like it was about to turn fun and exciting, again, in the world of comics. Welcome back, me, haha!
March 28, 2011 2:57 pm I just got back from Orlando, the con was a lot better than I thought it'd be. So exciting to get some cool news!
March 10, 2011 3:18 am I have to lean more on iFanboy's opinion on this one. Maybe I'm a snob when it comes to what to see in theater, but I thought that War Zone outdid the "loom of fate" on this one. I did like the look of Stevenson's Punisher, though. Maybe with good direction, he would do well. This is, however, not the worse movie I saw in theaters. That honor most likely goes to Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.
February 6, 2011 3:59 pm @RoiVampire - Thor was announced to be airing by Marvel, too. Rio (groans, the Angry Birds movie), and Cowboys and Aliens, like you said. I think Transformers 3, Pirates 4, the JJ Abrams flick, Super 8, X-Men: First Class; are expected as well.
December 3, 2010 6:03 pm Just for "Be cool, stay in school"....I pick Iceman!
September 23, 2010 2:14 pm Look at that glow around it, Robin has a super powered left hook.
September 3, 2010 4:31 pm @JeffR - Spider-Boy was my favorite, too.

Dark Claw had the creepiest villain design to me, in The Hyena. Almagam was about the last stuff I read in the 90's before I stopped and came back in the 2000's. It's weird to see others sharing their enthusiasm for the line, when most of the comic book people in my area have no idea what I'm talking about....that or they've blocked it out, haha.
July 30, 2010 2:51 pm Yeah, I'm thinking the smoke figure that busts into bats is a baddie, yet to be revealed. WB won't allow Batman in the series, like Conor mentioned, which is why I think Green Arrow is depicted the way he is.
