the-wolverine-teaser-posterOkay, let me start off very blunt- The Wolverine was awesome. Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman in his sixth appearance as the titular character in the X-Men film series, this film almost all but wipes out the bad taste in audience’s mouths left from 2009’s X-Men: Origins- Wolverine film. This film has a surprising amount of depth, and Mangold’s direction and Jackman’s performance blend effortlessly together. While the film is definitely a stand-alone to the X-Men universe and little to no other mutants besides Wolverine are present, it brings in a cast of relatively unknown actors playing such great characters that you are still constantly engaged. That, and the wonderful character development that goes on with Jackman’s Wolverine.

Movie Review- ‘Man of Steel’

urlLet me start off by saying, overall, I enjoyed Man of Steel. It was well acted, had impressive visuals, an excellent score by Hans Zimmer, and was quite a fun ride. That being said, I went into this movie with an unfair expectation that – since the story was created by Christopher Nolan and produced by him – that it would be on par with Nolan’s Batman reboot, Batman Begins. In that respect, it wasn’t quite up there, and that damaged my view of the film

Bye Bye Mary Jane Watson

urlNews broke today, hot on the heels of the announcement that Sony will be going forward with both The Amazing Spider Man 3 and 4, that Shailene Woodley, who filmed scenes as Peter Parker’s love interest Mary Jane Watson, has been cut from the film. Director Marc Webb revealed that he wanted to streamline the story, and focus on Peter Parker’s relationship with Gwen Stacy in the upcoming Spider Man sequel. This would mean Mary Jane’s introduction in the 3rd film, and it was reported that the role would most likely be recast, and that Woodley would not make an appearance.

This news adds more heavily to the theory that the studio will go forward in the sequel with one  of the most memorable Spider Man arcs- where Gwen Stacy is killed. I, for one, in a desire to see more of Emma Stone’s portrayal of the character, hope they do not.

The Amazing Spider Man 2 is set to be released on May 4th, 2014.
