First Impressions: "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" Game Demo

In First Impressions on May 2, 2009 at 2:42 am

X-Men Origins: Wolverine: The GameEarlier today, I posted this less than favorable review of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.  A glutton for punishment, I saw that the demo for the video game interpretation had been released, and jumped at the chance.  All I have to say is this: holy SHIT!  Why wasn’t this released instead of the movie!?

Review: "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"

In On Film on May 1, 2009 at 5:02 pm

X-Men Origins: WolverineStarring: Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston, Taylor Kitsch, Ryan Reynolds

Director: Gavin Hood

Writer: David Benioff (Screenplay), Skip Woods (Screenplay)

Hugh Jackman has shown a remarkable dedication to the character that made him famous, playing Wolverine in 4 X-Men movies and voicing him in 2 games.  The problem is, this dedication can’t seem to pull an otherwise likable actor from being in a bad movie, and that’s really all X-Men Origins Wolverine is…a bad, bad movie.

The Pull List! Week of March 11th, 2009

In The Pull List! on March 16, 2009 at 5:00 pm

Just like a few weeks ago, when Marvel unleashed an onslaught of Avengers titles, they’re doing it again this week: every X-Men title but Cable is coming out this week!!  It seems like poor marketing, in my opinion.  How could they possibly expect people who are fans of the books to afford all these?  Ultimate X-Men and Young X-Men end this week, but next month will also see the launch of the revamped New Mutants, which we now know is going to feature Illyana Rasputin.

Meanwhile, over on the DC side of things, we’re getting our second Battle for the Cowl crossover, this week, and I’m really excited.  I was a pretty big fan of Jean-Paul Valley/Azrael, and I’m eager to see if I’m right about who this new Azrael is, and how they’re going to handle the character.  Judging by solicits on DC’s website, though, it looks like this one is going to be great.

That said, lets get going!  Time for this week’s PULL LIST!

Review: "Hulk VS."

In On Film on March 10, 2009 at 3:08 am

Marvel and DC are now doing war on a new front, and that is the world of animated features.  To be fair, they’ve both been doing this for years, but since they’ve been releasing more high profile features than usual.  And now, with “The Incredible Hulk” having been such a hit and the well response to “Ultimate Avengers” and “Ultimate Avengers 2” animated features, Marvel has stepped out again, releasing “Hulk. VS.”
