#1. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For got pushed back from this October (awesome, a comic book movie in the Fall!) to next August (the month I've always called "The OTHER 'Summer' Movies")... Making the wait more than 9 years. What shit... AND #2. My Give-A-Shit-Meter is low for Kick-Ass 2. It's been over 3 years since the first. I know it could have been worse (The Dark Knight Rises, Star Trek Into Darkness) but those movies aren't as hard to make, and there's already an exact source material. If it would have come on the next year after the first, or 2 years tops, I'd be more excited. Maybe it's also that I recently read the book and I can be sure that it's be 75-85% the same, almost like the first, and a part of me feels like I already saw it.
What did you think of This Is The End, and Man of Steel?
Saw Man of Steel again tonight. I LOVED it WAY more with another viewing. Knowing what to expect, it was simply easier to enjoy. I recommend seeing it again to anyone. In my second viewing, any and all problems I felt in my first, felt much smaller. The pacing problems in the middle act didn't seem like "problems" at all. This origin/introduction is just told differently in a more brisk fashion. This is indeed a winner of a blockbuster. The best of the Summer. The emotion is excellent. The music is amazing. The acting is terrific. This is the Superman movie I've waited my entire life to experience and left me needing more. It is because of Christopher Nolan's concept. It is because of Hans Zimmer's score. It is because of Zack Snyder's directing. I am proud of this film. I love the new theme music. It combines the best parts of the golden, silver, and modern age. And it has the best action I've ever seen in a superhero movie. But don't try to compare it to The Dark Knight or The Avengers. If you try to compare every genre film you see to them... you're going to have a bad time. But once again, Zack Snyder has done to Superman what Chris Nolan did to Batman. I am impressed, and excited for what can come.
