Super Bowl Sunday I was having dinner with a group of friends who could care less about how bad the game was and we were all discussing a serious topic so no phones or media around. By the time I got home I was going through the ritual of settling down for the night, first email that pops up was from someone who was at dinner with me “DUDE!” with 2 links.
One was the link to the Captain America SB spot. A few days earlier I had seen the movie poster and have since been wrestling with whether or not I like Chris Evans as Cap. I’m still undecided. On one hand I think he looks pretty cool in the suit. But then I start seeing Chris Evans the dorky underwear model and think to myself (I’d have a hard time taking this mimbo seriously). Like the Green Lantern trailer, this one raised some flags that I’ll refrain from commenting on just yet until I see more. Hopefully I’m being pessimistic about this one. However, I’d like to thank the effects team from the Curious Case of Benjamin Button for providing us with the technology to see a pretty cool transformation of Steve Rogers the scrawny guy to Steve Rogers the Super Soldier. I buy it.
It may be time to call a priest for Spider Man: turn off the dark. Critics have pretty much raped it. I think this one Is in critical condition in the ICU. Our prayers are with all those who have purchased tickets.
The other link I mentioned before was Thor. It looks Badass.
Check out the best thing I’ve seen all week. I’m sure this is nothing new by now, but it’s still a great fan film.
