We go into 'Inglourious Basterds' expecting to see more Basterd action than we actually get, but that's okay because what we actually get is so much more than the simple WWII men on a mission film the Brad Pitt-filled trailers sold.
The Bride wants revenge for the death of her fiancé, the death of her child, and the nearly successful attempt on her own life that put her in a coma for four years.
Not that it doesn't all make sense, but it took guts to follow up the death of John Travolta in 'Pulp Fiction' with a living John Travolta from earlier in the film's non-chronologically presented time stream
Tarantino likes feet. That's wonderful for him. But rather than just keep that a private part of his personal life, he has no problem sharing his fetish with the world. Enough of his films offer loving, glorious close-ups of his actresses' feet that we can predictably look forward to it in each new film
Where were you guys when Dredd came out? It's such a good, fun, R-rated action film, and yet it died on the vine. Granted, this isn't the most cinematic character thanks to the gigantic mask and constant grimace
No, not the super cheesy 2004 Jessica Alba film. I'm referring to the super cheesy 1994 Roger Corman one. Chances that you've seen this one are pretty low since it was never officially released. Some say the film was made only to retain the character rights, not actually to show anyone. Other stories say Marvel executive Avi Arad bought the film and had all the prints destroyed because it looked so cheap and horrible.
John Henry Irons might have been the most inspired addition to the DC Universe that came out of the “Death of Superman” storyline. As one of the Superman copies who tried to fill his shoes after Doomsday punched him in the face to death with his knuckle bones, John Henry Irons (aka Steel) was the most human and least super-powered of the group, which in turn made him the most likable and impressive. He's kind of like humble, blue collar Batman, with a bit of African American iconography thrown in for good measure.
Those of us over thirty might remember this, but we don't really count as people anymore. Youngens are probably less familiar with this Incredible Hulk TV movie. The Lou Ferrigno/Bill Bixby iteration of The Hulk actually enjoyed three post-series television films, but this one is best because it's the only one in which Hulk teams up with Thor.
When you think of Nick Fury, the obvious face for the name belongs to Samuel L. Jackson, who started playing the role in the pages of comic books long before putting on an eyepatch in real life.
A lot of you are probably aware of Dolph Ludgren's Punisher movie, but I wonder how many of you have actually seen it. The film isn't as blood n' guts awesome as Punisher: War Zone, but it stands head and shoulders above the lame Thomas Jane version.
