Little bit about me: I’m a film writer from England, and I write reviews and articles for a couple newspapers back home. I’m a massive film fan, obviously; and I also grew up on comic books, with a soft spot for the big guns – X-Men, Superman, Batman, Spider-Man. Another good thing to know about me is that I tend to disagree with most comic book film fans. For instance, I think Batman Begins is just as good a film as The Dark Knight, and I actually think without Heath Ledger’s Joker Dark Knight would be a barely average action flick memorable mostly for a couple good moments, lots of bad acting/growling, and an 11-year-old’s ethical dilemmas (“you either die or live long enough to see yourself become the villain” – seriously?). I think either of Burton’s Batman films are lightyears better than Nolan’s, I think Superman Returns is a fantastic flick, and I can’t understand why HBO hasn’t made shows out of 100 Bullets and Fables yet. I liked Spider-Man 3, and I didn’t like Iron Man. Watchmen is one of the worst comic book movies ever, I don’t really give a shit about the Avengers movie, I hate 3D, and I’ll bet you $100 right now that Scott Pilgrim‘s gonna be the best film of the summer. Oh, and I think Kick-Ass is mind-bendingly stupid.
I guess what I’m saying is – get ready to disagree with me.
