  Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern
Posted by: Kerri on Jul 12th, 2009 2 Comments »

The rivalry between DC Comics and Marvel has been going on for what seems like forever.  Batman.  Spiderman.  Superman.  The Avengers. The Fantastic Four.  The Justice League.  The Hulk.  Iron Man.

It came as no surprise to see that both DC and Marvel have created their own movie studios and that the feud has left the comic book world and taken the big screen.

And now at the crux of this feud, where there’s due to be Iron Man and Batman sequels, and the Avengers is on the horizon, comes The Green Lantern, a staple in the DC Universe.

And it has just been reported that Ryan Reynolds has signed on to play this legendary DC Superhero.

For those who are unfamiliar with this comic book legend, he first made an appearance in All American Comics #16 in July of 1940.  Originally created by writer Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell, the Green Lantern was adorned with a power ring that gives the user control over the physical world, as long he had the strength and will power to be able to wield it.

Reynolds, according to the Hollywood Reporter beat out Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper as Warner Bros first choice for the iconic superhero.  Also, the process of choosing the newest superhero was a lengthy one, and now makes Reynolds the ONLY actor to play a character in both DC and Marvel universes.

Most recently Reynolds can been seen playing Deadpool in the X-men Origins series, Wolverine.  It has also been rumored that Deadpool may be seeing a spinoff in the near future, which will star Reynolds.  Also, Reynolds can be seen as the vampire hunter, Hannibal King, in Blade: Trinity.

This also won’t be Reynolds first dip in the DC Universe, as he was tapped a few years ago to play the Flash.

Directed by Martin Campbell with a screenplay by Greg Berlanti and Michael Green, the Green Lantern is tentatively scheduled to have a release date of June 17, 2011.




  RunPee Gets iPhone App
Posted by: Christine on Jul 7th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

runpeeappWe recently wrote about two new sites that are super helpful for frequent movie-goers: RunPee.com and MovieStinger.com. One of them just got a whole lot more useful.

RunPee is now available as an iPhone App. The App, like the site, allows users to view the best time to run to the restroom without missing anything important. It even tells you what you’ll be missing while you’re, *ahem*, doing your business. It even has a timer so you know exactly how long you have.

It’s frequently updated to have the latest movies, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to use it on opening weekend. The App is $0.99 and can be downloaded through iTunes by clicking here (this link will open iTunes on your computer).

The MovieSnobs are going to test out the App soon, and will also be testing out how good their pee-time advice is. The app currently has four-and-a-half stars. If you’ve bought the App or used the site, what do you think?

Public Enemies Review

Public Enemies

Such high hopes.  How could this movie possibly not be any good?  Johnny Depp and Christian Bale as opposing forces in their lead roles?  How could it not be fantastic, right?

Well, it’s not. It’s not even close to fantastic. It’s not even close to good.  It’s 2 hours and 20 minutes of your life that you’ll never get back.  It’s 2 hours and 20 minutes that you’ll wish the movie would just end so you could go home.

Every time Dillinger (Depp) got captured, I thought “This it it! It’s over! I can go home now.”  But alas, he always escaped prison, and went on the run again. Over, and over, and over and over again.  It seemed like the whole movie was him escaping from the cops, and being on the run.

The movie focused very little on the actual bank robbing, and the “publicly loved” portion of Dillinger’s career as a crook.  Instead the movie made it a point to show how dumb the FBI were in their initial stages.Many times Dillinger walks right down the street in front of an Agent, and they don’t notice.  At one point he walks into a squad room at the Chicago Police Station that says “Dillinger Squad” on its door, and they don’t even notice! Seriously?  What the hell? Did this really happen?

The movie had entirely too much “shaky camera” in it.  At times all I could think was “put the friggen camera on a tripod or somethin'” or “don’t let the guy with Parkinson’s hold the camera!”  Shoddy camera work, coupled with a barely audible voice track made it a very unenjoyable experience for me.  Add in a boring story and plot for the film, and you’ve got a movie that I’m beyond pissed about having seen.

On Tuesday of this past week, I read a review on another site that said “Public Enemies is the best movie of the year.”  I shall not name that website by name, nor will I ever visit it again.  That’s the problem with sites (such as ours), you trust their opinion, and you get screwed.  I should have known — a glowing review the day before a movie comes out can only mean one thing; the writer got a big fat check from a movie studio to say what they said.

Here’s the part where I warn you not to see this movie.  If you know me, if you’ve visited this site before, you know how hard this is for me. I love Christian Bale. I have a bromance and a man crush on him. It’s no secret.  For me to tell you not to see this movie must mean something.  Stay away. Stay far away.  Regardless of how you feel about Johnny Depp or Christian Bale. You do not want to see this movie. I assure you.

Be in The Fighter!

Be in The Fighter!

Live in the Boston area?  Know where Lowell is?  Have no plans for July 14th, 15th or 16th between 10AM and 5PM?

Why not be in a movie? Or at least be an extra in a movie.

The upcoming The Fighter starring Christian Bale, and Mark Wahlberg is filming in Lowell Massachusetts on the 14th 15th and 16th of July, and need extras for an undisclosed scene.

I just signed Christine and I up, and am waiting to hear back if we’ve been accepted, and what the next steps are.

If you’re interested, they still need people for the 15th and 16th (Wednesday and Thursday.) To sign up head to BeInAMovie.com and sign up.  It’s free, there’s free food, free prizes, and you might meet famous people. What more do you need?
