On another note it was announced there doing a Bleach movie based on the manga. Good lord I pray that the film is decent as I already don't like the Director they have on the film.

:o I'd better not get my hopes up. These movies based on Anime haven't been all that good lately. I don't know if there are any good ones to be had...

 

DamagEdit: Who's directing, by the way?

Shut your mouth! DB Evolution was the bomb!

A Bleach movie could only improve upon the anime/manga. Forcing the writers to deal with 2 hours instead of years and years worth of repetitive chapters and episodes should at least make it come close to being watchable.

Saw the new Ghost Rider last weekend. A good deal better than the first one. Nic Cage gets to do his crazy shtick and the actual Ghost Rider scenes are a good deal more fun than the original. There's also a cool bit at the end where all of the world's leaders, political and otherwise, are revealed to be Satan worshipers. And Ghost Rider kills them all with one whip of his fire chain. There's some heady political commentary right there. Heeheehee

The Director who may do Bleach is Peter Segal who did the Get Smart movie. Writing it is Dan Mazeau who most recently did Wrath of Titans which is scheduled to come out this summer.

Yeah. You've got a point there. We'll just have to wait and see. I'm just waiting for an image of Ichigo to show up. Where he has all black hair, or some other color, with a little orange highlight on the side. :P

I'm sure someone else out there has realized this before now, but this blew my mind when my friends and I drew the connections after school:

Christopher Nolan's Batman = Obama (aside from the obvious dark knight, black guy thing)

 

Now, hear me out before you go calling bullshit. I'll admit that the origin stories are generally incongruent, but it gets better as you get more recent.

  • They're both rising stars in their respective settings that claim to work for change and fight against corruption.
  • Come up against first major opponents
    • Seem completely overwhelmed by their opponents' calling cards but then clearly gain the upper hand (fear gas and Clinton name)
    • Strategies of opponents revolved around a (failed) single proposed one shot kill
      • Scarecrow pinned all his hopes on getting fear gas to everyone while Clinton pinned all her hopes on Super Tuesday

    [*]First opponents fell way to reveal old white guys well versed in the art of war (Ra's and McCain)

    [*]2008 they both reach the height of the popularity after the defeat of their opponents

    • Almost everyone loves them and tries to emulate them.
    • Everyone seems to echo their message.

    [*]They come up against absolutely confounding obstacles (insane Joker and dysfunctional Congress)

    [*]They take the rap for things they weren't entirely at fault for and nosedive in popularity (Dent's murder's and still declining economy)

    [*]Their upcoming challenge will take place in 2012...

    [*]Likely opponents: Bane and Romney

    • Romney founded Bain Capital (that's the part that blew my mind)
    • Unique feature of both involves throwing brute force at the problem (Venom and money)

    [*]Campaign speculations line up oddly well with interactions between Batman and Bane

Just saw Act of Valor last night. It's gotten pretty negative reviews, apparently. Objectively I can understand why. The plot is a bit predictable, even cliched. The acting varies between decent and downright horrific.

However, I think the latter was a thing. The dialogue by the SEALs was imperfect, but it gave the whole film a sense of believability and realism to it. Not to mention that even the most severe critics of the film still praised its action sequences, and with good reason. They were extremely well done.

Overall, I'd recommend the movie to anyone who's fond of action/war films; if you're a big fan of Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, Tears of the Sun, etc., then you'll love it. Casual movie-watchers probably won't see anything special in it.
