Spider Man Trilogy VS The Amazing Spider Man Would Be Trilogy

I’m just going to go out and say it. Sam Raimi’s trilogy is certainly far better than the two Amazing Spider Man movies. It would seem that most of the world is in agreement with that as well.

But what makes it all that much better? Well, I am just going to talk about 2 things that really bug me.

But before I get to that, let’s take a look at the main character. I find this to be interesting, for I feel Toby McGuire played a better Peter Parker, while Andrew Garfield was the better costumed hero.

Both did good jobs at their alter-egos, but Garfield really nailed the humor and sarcasm Spider Man is known for, while McGuire’s seemed to lack that severely, while Garfield’s Peter was far to “hip” and not at all nerdy. You didn’t feel bad for him. When he became Spider Man, it was like, oh okay.

But when McGuire becomes Spider Man, you are so happy that something good happened to him, because for the 10 minutes of the movie he does not have powers, he is being crapped on by everyone he meets.pparker3

So we’ll put them at a tie for main character. So what about their love interests? Both Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and Mary Jane, (Kirsten Dunst) do great jobs at being those characters and giving them their own personalities.

This was what I immediately hated about The Amazing Spider Man. Gwen and Peter are classmates that seem to barely know each other beyond “that kid in my class,” but they have like two conversations and instantly fall head over heels, deeply, madly in love. Yes, it’s implied Peter has had a crush on her already, but their coupling happens so instantaneously that it is very unbelievable that it put me off from their relationship. The lack of character development for both of them also puts a disinterest in their personal love affairs too. I don’t know, just going from less than acquaintances to destined lovers in minutes is just a bit farfetched.

In Sam Raimi’s trilogy, it becomes immediately clear that Peter has wanted Mary Jane, his next door neighbor, for his entire life, and she has hardly spared a glance for him. She was the exact opposite of him. He knew he didn’t have a shot at her at all. When he gets his powers, he becomes a little more confident, but still fails to make a move.

So instead, Pete’s best friend dates her instead. Eventually she falls for Spider Man, which gives Peter the confidence to move forward as himself. When he finally can have her, he shuts her down to protect her. The second movie is a roller coaster of emotion. he basically gives up his whole life to be Spider Man, truly a noble act, but when he can bear it no longer, he gives it up, only to have Mary Jane say no. He returns as Spider Man when Mary Jane realizes she made a mistake and tells him she wants to be with him.

Again, Peter stays away to protect her. This is so powerful because both at this point know that they love each other so deeply, and neither of them truly understands why they won’t allow themselves to be with the other. They are constantly struggling with themselves, so by the time they end up together, in the last scene of the movie, you are about as happy as they are.

So in otherwords, McGuire and Mary Jane take two full movies to finally come together, while Garfield and Gwen take two scenes.

My final reason for today why Sam Raimi’s is so much better is the whole way Uncle Ben died.

uncle-ben-has-died-so-many-times.png

In Amazing, Ben and Peter have a huge fight, one worse I think than in Raimi’s movies, peter fightso that’s a plus. But the circumstances leading up to Ben’s murder are pretty lame and would not impose as much guilt on Garfield, thus the viewer does not feel as much sorrow or whatever for Peter either, or really, the entire situation.

Allow me to explain what I mean. In both movies, Peter has a run in with the criminal who kills Uncle Ben moments before he does that heinous act. Peter has a chance to stop them, and doesn’t, thus Peter always believes it is his fault.

So in Amazing, Peter goes to a store to buy a little thing of milk for himself. He is short two cents and tries to take it from that “leave a penny, take a penny thing.” The clerk is a real d-bag and gives him a hard time, saying he can’t just take money without leaving any in return or something. It doesn’t really make sense. But the clerk says it’s “store policy,” and an angered Peter leaves the milk behind and shuffles off, just as the criminal enters the store. He robs the register and even gives the milk to Peter, thus technically making him a shoplifter. When the robber takes off, the clerk yells to Peter to go and catch him. The clerk gets mad when he doesn’t and Peter says it’s not his policy.

This is what ticks me off. Why is the clerk so mad and expectant of Peter? He doesn’t know he has powers. Why would anyone expect some random person to go chase down a criminal. The only person who is aware that he could easily stop the criminal is Peter himself. And because he didn’t have enough money to buy the milk, he took it out on the store clerk.

So the criminal gets away and shoots Uncle Ben. The only satisfying thing about this is the childish reason Peter let the criminal get away. That could weigh heavy on someone’s mind for sure. But yeah…pretty lame.

uncle ben deadIn Raimi’s film, Peter wins a wrestling match to win $3000 but gets scammed and winds up only getting like $200 for basically being too strong. He’s trying to win the money to buy a car, but the man tells him he fails to see the part where that’s his problem. So he gets screwed and leaves all ticked, just as the criminal goes and robs the cash that Peter rightfully won and then some. Pete lets him pass to get away and the man says that you could have killed that guy. Peter says it’s not his problem. This is much better because Peter just proved that he was able to easily crush anyone in his path and the man knew it. He wasn’t just getting ticked at a random customer. Peter could have also easily stopped him without revealing his powers since he was face to face with the man. Garfield was in the middle of a street that would have attracted far too much attention.

In short, Garfield is mad because he didn’t have enough money, and McGuire was mad because he was screwed out of 3 grand. So yeah. Raimi’s is a lot better in that respect.

There are many other reasons why the older ones are better, but I could be here all day talking about it. The original trilogy is even more impressive because they were made before there were countless super hero movies. They were essentially a guinea pig and they were better than anyone expected. Even now, when the first movie is nearly 20 years old (wow!) they still hold up today.

And for the record, I do enjoy all of them, just some were very disappointing.  From worst to best I would rank them

Tournament Of Hotties: Impossibly Hot Women, Round 2 (Part 1)

Welcome to Round 2! Check out Round 1 listed here. We have 8 women left standing to bash their beauty on our willing eyes! But only four will advance…who will it be?

 

 

 

Megan Fox

VS

Jessica Alba

 

Let’s start with the unbelievably hot Megan Fox. She has been around for a while now, and has gotten nothing but hotter I think. She was recently in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and made the character of April O’Neil unbelievably sexy.

april 3

Man, even in a yellow jacket and nothing revealing at all, she is smoking hot. I mean, seriously, she is just scratching her head and makes it seem like the sexiest thing on the planet.

In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, they really are kind to the viewers to give us this display of her.

april 4

This picture is basically every man’s wet dream. In fact, the whole movie feels like it’s her posing and just being super hot. And in case this isn’t your wet dream, then maybe these are…

 

Her posture, her expressions, her body, all fabulous. What’s that? Her body is too covered in these shots? Perhaps you are right. Here ya go!

 

Perfection at it’s finest!!

 

I hope you didn’t spend yourself all on her, because next up is the beautiful Jessica Alba!

I first realized how impossibly hot she is in the movie Fantastic Four, where she is just absolutely glowing. It was after that I finally understood everyone’s obsession over her. That and when you see pictures like this, it’s hard not to be.

 

She’s another one who is gorgeous with her body covered, and drop dead gorgeous with it exposed. The fact that she seems to be a pure sweetheart adds to her hotness too! She has an amazing body, a beautiful face, and just a sexy aura about her.

So the only question is, who is hotter. Despite being presented with two women who shatter the hottie scale, this is a no brainer choice.

While both women are perfect in the looks department, particularly their bodies, this one just seems so much hotter somehow. Everything about her is far sexier, I don’t know why, but it is. And that is why she is the winner.

Don’t go away yet, two more hotties left to go!!

 

Angelina Jolie

VS

Joanie Brosas

Two long haired brunettes are next. Let’s take a look at the older, yet unfaltering beauty of Angelina Jolie.

The last movie I’ve seen her in was probably Mr. & Mrs. Smith, an awesome movie that is made better with just her mere presence in it. Mainly because she is so fine, and just so naturally over the top sexy.

And her wardrobe is killer in it.

 

This was the movie Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston to eventually marry her. I can’t say I really blame the guy. Acting like you are married to this hottie would only lead most men to strive to make that a reality.

Aside from all her movies, she is impossibly gorgeous just about all the time.

 

Her whole life has been one hot thrill ride for any who has laid eyes on her, and what I can only imagine as one of the greatest rides of all time if you got laid by her. Even her fake sex scenes show off that this woman would be something else in the sack. Well, here’s to dreaming!

And by the way, in the movie Alexander, you’ve never seen anyone look so good in a toga and other ancient articles of clothing.

angelina jolie alexander

Next up is the long haired, tall and slender, jaw dropping hottie cosplayer Joanie Brosas. I know nothing about her except that she is really just amazingly hot.

 

So yeah, her body has not a flaw on it, or a single trace of fat for that matter. She is lacking in the boob department because of this, where Angie is not at all. But she makes up for it everywhere else.

Both of these women are so hot, I don’t know how to choose. To make it more difficult, while Angie played Lara Croft, Joanie cosplayed her.

Let’s see the comparison!!

 

 

Both girls wear Lara’s wardrobe quite nicely, but anyone with eyes would realize that Joanie has an unfair advantage for wearing a barely legal version of it.

So now it is time to decide.

This woman’s body is 110% perfect. Every little inch of her. Each curve. Her beautiful hair and that adorable, gorgeous face. Both women are astonishing, but this one shines through…

Well there you have it! Megan Fox and Joanie Brosas will face off in the semi finals!

Check out part 2 to see who will join them!!

Tournament Of Hotties: Impossibly Hot Women Round 1 (Part 2)

Welcome back to Round 1, where 2 more sets of unbelievably hot women will face off to see who is the hottest. Check out part one if you missed it. Now, let’s not waste anytime, let’s check out the next two hotties!

 

Angelina Jolie

VS

Denise Richards

Phew, these women are amazing! Just look at em up there. You couldn’t wish for more hotness than these two have!

Let’s talk about Angie first. Where to begin? I first found out about Angelina Jolie’s existence from watching the 2001 movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. If ever there was a thing as “love at first sight,” this was it for me. She without a doubt, was the most beautiful person on the planet I had ever seen. I didn’t even have to put in the movie to fall in love with her. The stinking cover was enough.

tomb raider cover

Dang. I was 12 or 13 when the movie came out, and this was about the sexiest thing I had even seen in my life. The long braid of hair, the tight tank top that shows off a huge pair of jugs and the abs bulging out…not too much, but just enough to tell you this woman is toned as hell, and unbelievably gorgeous. The short shorts that give way to long slender legs that are criminally cut off are an amazing tease. How dare they cut off any portion of this perfect specimen’s body!?

 

 

 

When I finally stopped staring and popped the tape in the VCR, it became immediately apparent that the cover was not a hoax, this woman, Angelina Jolie, really is that hot. If anything, the cover does not do her unheard of beauty justice, for it does not capture how effortlessly sexy this woman is. From the way she moves, to the way shes talks. Even if she just had to scratch her head, the eloquent way she moved her arm up to her head would have me melting all over. Each word seemed to drip from her lips, so sensual and loving, her smile so sexy and beckoning. And speaking of her lips, my God, they are the most luscious things you will ever lay eyes on, well maybe unless you look down at her chest. But anyway, those perfect lips make her words all the more paralyzingly sexy. You could be content just watching her speak and move. You love the words coming out of her mouth, it almost becomes as good as sticking something in those lips, a tragic fantasy every man must have ripped from them when watching this beauty, unless your Brad Pitt and a few other incredibly lucky guys.

If the pain of watching everything about her physical perfection wasn’t bad (or good) enough, it was even more agitating but equally pleasurable in the fact that every thing she wore in that movie, despite not being revealing at all, made her look like the most incredibly sexy and alluring sexual beast the world has ever known!

Here is just a quick example…

 

Literally everything she wore hugged her body in such a perfect way, or really more specifically, they hugged her boobs, making each and every one of us jealous of a shirt…It was like none of the outfits were big enough to fit around those beasts, and that was for the better, believe me! There was even an occasional nipple poking through, which obviously, is all the more welcome!

But anyone who has seen this movie will take one amazing, joy filled memory with them. You know what I am talking about…I know you do!! The famous shower scene. First off, this scene has no nudity or anything, it’s just Angelina like running water down her hair for like 15 seconds, but the way she moves…it’s just…oh man…I don’t know. She just makes it seem so erotic. It’s basically like you are having sex with her. She even parts those luscious lips from a side view for you, and that is enough to shoot a tingle down everybody’s spine. But that is not even what I am talking about. It is when she gets out of the shower that the magic really happens.

BOOM!angelina jolie tomb-raider-4

The most amazing side boob you will ever see. Let me explain how amazing this was as a child. I was barely a teenager when I saw this and probably the only boobs I ever saw were Rose’s from Titanic. Then I spent this whole movie staring at her jugs with all her tight fitting shirts being stretched to their limits. Then she gets out of the shower and to everyone’s delight, she rips her towel off unexpectedly and turns just enough that you can see everything you possibly can without it being full nudity and keeping the movie PG-13.

Now this amazing side boob does a couple things. It confirms her boobs are as big as they look and it releases some weird sexual tension that has built up from watching her supreme hotness, which is amazing and much needed at this point.

Those are the pros, the con, it leaves you wanting more…so, so, so much more! You want to see every part of that beautiful toned body, every tiny inch of it. How could they tease the viewers like that! Eventually, you learn to just be happy you got to see any part of her at all, and then enjoy the rest of the movie with a smile on your face as you watch her in all her unmatched hotness, staring at her boobs ready to burst from her shirts, thinking to yourself, “yeah, I got to see those…a little…to the side…” as your smirk grows bigger.

So yeah, that is the story of how I fell in love with Angelina Jolie. For years I stated without hesitation that she was the most beautiful woman on planet Earth.  I have seen very few movies with her in it, but of the ones I have, she is just as alluring and sexy in all of them. It was only fitting that she was cast in the role of probably the most famously hot female video game character ever designed at that point.

Next up is Denise Richards. Like Angie, I discovered her from a movie, and the whole time she was in it, I couldn’t help but get aroused. She brought the meaning of sexy to a whole new level, from the way she looked, talked, walked, and above all, her facial expressions were such a big turn on, it blew me away.

What movie am I talking about? The 1998 film, Wild Things of course! Despite this being a very thrilling movie on it’s own, the director clearly searched high and low for the hottest woman they could find and then spend half the movie showing her off. Literally everything she wears is skimpy and revealing in some way. You also get to see her naked on several occasions and make out with a girl on her own and in a threesome. So yeah, it’s pretty amazing stuff. She looked a little like this…

 

Believe it or not, she is way hotter in the movie even! And just like the woman she is competing against, she has a wonderful rack and big, sexy lips. If you were to look up any word in the dictionary related to the words, “hot,” “sexy,” “arouse,” “dammmmmmnnn,” etc., it would be hard to tell which of these two women’s photo would go there.

Denise is most famous for being an unbelievably hot Bond girl I believe. A movie I have to see.

She has also been featured in PlayBoy Magazine wearing a…net…

 

Not very practical clothing, but if its purpose is to make us all sit up a little straighter, then they nailed it on the head. I have only even seen Denise Richards in this one movie, but I can only imagine that just like in Wild Things, any time she is on screen, you will forget entirely about the movie and will instead be lost in her all encompassing beauty.

Unfortunately today, she isn’t all that hot. Her body is still amazing, but her face looks kind of weird, like plastic surgery gone wrong or something. Even so, do not let that detract from the impossibly hot woman she once was!!!

Now for the hard part. To decide which of these inhumanely hot women is hotter. Both have perfection on a physical level, and both are unbelievably sexy and heart melting beauties that would easily take your breath away if you saw them on the streets. But to choose only one, I would have to go with this one…

This hottie just has a more sexy edge on Denise. It just seems to flow off of her so naturally. She really must be an alien or something…

And now for the next bout!!!

 

 

Katie Cassidy

VS

Joanie Brosas

Hot dog!! We’ve got two tall, slender and absolutely gorgeous girls up next!!!

Katie Cassidy became one of the most beautiful women in the world to me after viewing her in what is probably my favorite show of all time, Arrow. In season 1, she wasn’t all that spectacular. She was very attractive of course, but nothing mind blowing. She sort of looked like this…Katie-Cassidy-Regard-Magazine-Photo-Shoot-arrow-cw-33738859-940-586

though not as made up of course.

But then along came season 2 and my God, I don’t know what happened, but I was hit by the train that is her infinite beauty. Ever since, every time she is on camera, I can’t help but drool. The show itself is always so intriguing, keeping you on the edge of your seat, but this beauty comes along and steals all the focus. But that really isn’t all that surprising when you start to look like this…

 

In the show, she plays a lawyer and always dresses really professional, so you can never tell what kind of body she has, though it’s obvious it’s a hot one. And if you couldn’t tell from the pictures above how sexy her long legs are, or how gorgeous her body is, here is some more proof…

So as you can tell, she has a wonderfully tone body, with an especially great booty. Everything, from that sexy wavy hair of hers down to her toes is just steamy hotness. Unfortunately, I have never seen her in anything but Arrow, but I am sure she’s gorgeous all the time!

Next up is the fabulous Joanie Brosas. This incredibly hot woman I believe is a model, which how could she not be, she’s beautiful x1000. But I think she is more known for her cosplaying, where she specializes in wearing as little amount of clothing as legally  possible.

As you can tell, she’s quite good at it. Her body is absolutely flawless. In fact, normally I would say she is too thin, but for some reason, maybe because she looks to be on the tall side, it works for her, thus just adding to her already inhuman hotness. Something else super sexy about her is that long, flowing hair of hers.

I don’t know why, but that is just as much of a turn on as her beautiful body.

This was another girl I fell hard for immediately. I was looking up something about a rumored Tomb Raider movie a few years ago, and I found this instead.

So yeah, anyone could fall victim to this appealing specimen. The long hair, the cute face, amazing figure, long legs, firm butt and the oh so sexy under boob make her a force to be reckoned with on the scale of hotness.

So I love everything about both these girls, so it comes down to which one is just simply better looking…and while they both are at least 10/10 on the hottie scale, this one can be pushed up to a 12..

Victor

Joanie Brosas darth vader

Joanie Brosas

Well folks, that’s another 4 hotties revealed, and another 2 to move on! See you next time for 4 more hotties as Round 1 continues!!

Tournament Of Hotties: Impossibly Hot Women (Round 1, Part 1)

And here we are with another Tournament of Hotties, this time nothing Power Ranger related! Instead, I gathered the 16 hottest women I could think of. But not your everyday hot. These women cause you to think, “They can’t be human, they can’t be from this planet. No human being from Earth could be this hot.”

Now I am sure there are plenty of hotter women out there, but these are the ones I can think of off the top of my head, and I am sure they look quite normal when they don’t have all that make up on either. But that is not the point. These girls are just so inhumanly hot that they must be recognized.

And as wonderful as these women are to look at, it is going to be quite a terrible experience to narrow them down to just 1 that is the hottest of all. How could anyone choose?

Also take note that this has nothing to do with how these women currently look, but is more how hot they were at some point in their lives.

So without further ado, let us begin Round 1.

Tara Reid

VS

Megan Fox

Dang…just dang…Right off the bat are two magnificent hotties. Let’s start with the gorgeous blond Tara Reid.

I first discovered this sexy lady in the 1999 film, American Pie, where she looked like this…and please, click on these pictures to see each one bigger…

american pie girls
In case you get lost in all the hotness here, Tara is the second from the left…

In this movie she wasn’t  “inhumanly” hot, but her raspy voice is one of the sexiest things I have ever heard. Every word out of her mouth sounds like she is trying to seduce the person she is talking to, which makes every man wish they were on the receiving end of those words. I think they even mention in the TV show Scrubs, where she occasionally has a small role, how sexy her voice is. She looks amazing in that show as well.

And when she appears in American Pie 2, her hotness is multiplied. They even point this out, as the main character, Jim says, “And Vicky got hot!” Vicky being Tara’s character. And Jim could not be any more right. She is smoking hot in that film, looking more like this.

I think the only other thing I have seen her in is American Reunion, where she is also smoking hot, though age set in a tad, unfortunately. But any sane man and some edgy women would do her anyway.

In case you couldn’t tell from her pictures, she is like the definition of a gorgeous blond. Her body is flawless, she has long longs, a nice set of boobs with seemingly very perky nipples as evidenced here.

Those little guys are always trying to sneak through! Not to mention two of the pictures in the group above this one!!

So yeah, this girl is hot, unbelievably hot. Every molecule on her body rages sexiness and we can’t get enough. She is also the first girl I have ever seen fake an orgasm on television, and I thank her from the bottom of my heart. Her screams of pleasure through that raspy voice are something that can never be duplicated by anyone else.

Ugh…so hot…

And next we have hottie number two…Megan Fox!! The first time I laid eyes on this beauty was on an episode of Two and a Half Men. I believe this was before she was famous, for I had no idea who she was at the time, and no one else did either. All I knew is that when they showed some random girl in a bikini hanging out with the rest of the cast, I thought to myself, “That is the hottest girl I have ever seen.” The whole episode was about how hot this girl was and how everyone on the show was drooling over her. Their acting was top notch, because I can firmly say, everyone in real life was doing the same. Nobody that hot had ever been on television before.megan_fox

This was a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggg time ago too. She has done nothing but get hotter.

But what really made this amazing looking girl famous was that unforgettable “under the hood” scene from Transformers. You know what I’m talking about, the scene where she is looking under the hood of her car and they pan up her body.

Yeah…that one. I bet you during this scene in the theaters, the whole theater was filled with the sounds of rustling denim as every man adjusted themselves.

I only saw the movie once (not in theaters), years and years ago, and this is all I remember from it. And what else could you take away from it? The moment you see this, it is all you will ever see for the next 3 days!! The way her sexy brown hair falls over her scantily clad body is so sexy. I was skeptical about seeing the movie, and every time I heard about it or asked about it, all I ever heard was “Megan Fox is so hot!” And that is how she became world renowned. But it wasn’t for many years later that I found out this new name everyone was talking about was the same girl I had subliminally fallen in love with from Two and a Half Men.

Everything about her is perfect. Everything. Every time she moves, every time she speaks, even stinking blinks, her hotness infests your brain. I honestly don’t know how every man who has seen her in person isn’t in jail for sexual assault. How could anyone resist such beauty?

Wearing nothing…

She is inhumanely hot and sexy and seems to have been born that way. Even without makeup I guarantee this girl is smokin’. I can’t even get over it. I wish I could meet someone 1/4 as hot as her. That girl would be by far and away the hottest person I’ve ever met.

So now the daunting deed must be committed. Which of these alienish women is hotter. The blond or the brunette?

It’s very close. Either one would fulfill any man’s wildest fantasies, but I would have to go with…

Victor

Now that I have shamed one of the hottest blonds of all time, let’s see what two amazingly hot women are next…

Scarlett Johanson

VS

Jessica Alba

Well crap, two more impossibly hard to choose from women. Let’s start with Scarlett. The first movie I ever saw her in was The Avengers, where she played the role of the incredibly bad ass, yet amazingly sexy and impossibly hot Black Widow. In fact, the first scene you see her in, she’s in a black dress that she looks simply amazing in.

See? I told you so. Right then and there, I realized she was one of the hottest women on the planet.

She first appeared as the character in Iron Man 2, where she looked amazing, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say she was inhumanly hot, though she definitely was rocking the costume and was still gorgeous.

It wasn’t until Avenger’s that she reached such a high level of hotness, and hasn’t slowed down a bit. She’s every bit as gorgeous in any of the other movies she plays the role in, if not hotter.

I have never seen her in any other movie, in any other role other than Black Widow, so I find myself wondering if it is just the character that is so hot, or the actress?

Yeah…it’s the actress.

She is stunning no matter what she’s doing it seems. Wow, just beautiful. There is just such a tough, sexy look about her, yet a sort of innocence as well, like she isn’t trying to be sexy, it just radiates from her naturally. She’s got a nice rack too, so that’s nice.

And next we have the amazing beauty, Jessica Alba. The first movie I saw her in was Good Luck Chuck, and man was she gorgeous in it. One can’t help but fall in love with her looks as well as her charming, adorable personality. I haven’t seen many other movies with her in it, but the ones I have, she is always beautiful and sexy, and usually strips down to nearly nothing. An old co-worker of mine was so in love with her, he kept a copy of Into the Blue on his desk, a movie in which she appears on the cover like this…

Jessica Alba into the blue

I don’t blame him, she’s hot.

Everything she wears, she looks amazing in. As you can tell, she has a perfect body and looks especially amazing in bikinis.

But she looks great in underwear and leather as well. I’ve never met her, but based on things I have read about her and how she acts in movies, she is not only gorgeous on the outside, but on the inside as well, and that is bonus points, baby!

So which of these super women will move on to round 2? It is a close one, but this girl is a tad bit hotter…

See you next time, as we continue with Round 1!

Fantastic Four (2015): Not Nearly As Bad As The World Made It Out To Be

I remember when the reboot to the Fantastic Four movies came out, within 24 hours, the world rang with cries of rage and disgust, calling this movie an abomination and unfinished crap and other derogatory things. I finally got around to seeing it myself, and I have got to say, it is not nearly as bad as people say. People were freaking out about how bad it was, as if they took it as a personal insult, like the movie slapped everyone’s mother and kicked their pets in the face.

Now, I am not saying this is a good movie. But it’s not bad. It’s just okay. Though this is coming from someone who never goes into anything with any real expectations and just enjoys everything for what it is and does not dwell on what I wish it was or could be.

That being said, I also should mention that I find most superhero movies very mediocre at best. Since I am talking about a Marvel movie, I will focus on them. I don’t really like many Marvel movies. Most of them I can consider watchable, but border on being bad, and are far from good. Fantastic Four fits right in with this.

Image result for iron man

So why is this movie so hated? My guess is because movies like the Avengers and Captain America have set the bar very high for what makes a good superhero movie, and I mean very high. And it even came out a few months after the second Avenger’s movie! That isn’t something too easy to follow up! So I guess maybe people were expecting an edge of your seat action movie with amazing fight scenes and all that fun stuff.

But no, instead we get an origin movie! Boy howdy! These origin movies are never that good, except for Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, and of course Captain America. But movies like Iron Man and Thor are crap. In fact all the movies in those series are garbage, but everyone loves them! The trouble with these origin movies is that they spend 3/4 of the movie explaining how they got their powers and then learning to control them and what not. At the same time, a villain has to be introduced, developed and also equipped with unnatural powers and then do something that must be stopped by the confused people who just got powers of their own. The line from Spider Man, “with great power comes great responsibility” is a wonderful line, because this is something virtually every hero learns and allows them to shape what type of hero they are, even including their abilities, name and costume.

Fantastic Four fits right into the typical origin movie, but as I said before, the standards of movie making are much higher nowadays. If this came out 10 years ago it would be a hit.

Think back to the old style of Marvel movies. There was one villain that did stuff, and maybe encountered the hero in a small fight, with more threats and plan revelations being thrown than punches. Then the suspense would build up for a final climatic battle, where both villain and hero really come into their own, learning the true limitations of their powers, with the hero always coming out on top. Then the hero would realize what he/she could do for the world thanks to these newly received powers, and they officially become a proud guardian of wherever they live, taking pleasure in the fact that they are using their powers for good. The movies always end on this high note.

That is the basic premise, throw in a love story, and day to day struggles, and you’ve got your movie. They were very simple, but had a nice charm to them. Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, X-Men, basically every movie made before like 2008 fit this bill.

Nowadays, there are groups of heroes, combining their powers and talents, fighting multiple villains or other people or things every 3 scenes in amazing action sequences with countless explosions and all that great visually appealing stuff. Their might be a love story crammed in their somewhere, but overall, they are much more action based and crazy, keeping you on the edge of your seats for most of the movie.

Both styles are great in my opinion. Trouble is, most people probably find the older style very outdated and boring nowadays. But to me, they are easier to follow and understand, and like I said, there is something charming about them.

That being said, let’s talk about the sequencing of Fantastic Four. It spends most of the time explaining how they got their powers, then they struggle with them, both in being unable to control them at first, then struggling in life with them or how to live with them…a love story kind of blossoms, a villain gains powers and tries to do something the rest of the world doesn’t agree with. The heroes accept the responsibilities their powers give them, learn to utilize them instead of being ashamed of them, and then in the end, there’s a climatic battle where they learn to use the full potential of their powers to stop the single villain.

Afterwards, they unite as a team and get their feeling of self-worth, proud and happy that they can make a difference in the world.

So which style does this movie sound like? That’s right, the older one. And actually, for an origin movie, this one is pretty interesting. I like the depth they go into showing how everything came about.

Like I said, it’s not a bad movie, but it’s not good either. If I had to guess, the reason why everyone hates this movie is because there is one real fight scene, the final battle between Dr. Doom and the four. This is disappointing for sure, since the reason anyone wants to see a superhero movie is for the action, but it doesn’t necessarily make a movie bad either. It shined in other ways to redeem it a bit.

So overall, it is far from the best movie out there, but far from the worst. People should really give it a chance, just because it is not like the Avengers, doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyed.

Why Is There No Amazing Avengers Game?

The only time I’ve really seen any of Marvel’s characters in games, aside from Spider Man is in fighting games. I remember a great X-Men game for SNES, but otherwise there is like nothing out there that doesn’t involve fighting or legos.

What I have in mind is a game sort of like the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers/Return of the King for Gamecube/PS2/Xbox. In those games you got to choose any characters from the fellowship and play through a few separate campaigns for each, a couple of characters sharing the same campaign that was good for co-op. You could level up each character and learn new combos and attacks and the like.

Now if some developer would take that premise, modernize it a bit and combine it with the action of say, Hyrule Warriors, and I guess the Dynasty Warriors games, (I have never played them) with the over the top combos and attacks, co-op and tons of killing stuff.

Now wouldn’t a third person action game where you can choose an Avenger, and have another one along side you, going throughout the world, completing missions and putting the hurt on Hydra or some other Marvel baddies, with epic boss battles at the end. It would be amazing. You don’t see many games like that anymore, probably because online shooters and 100 hour rpg’s have pretty much taken over the market. But for us people who still enjoy playing a not too complicated game single player, or with a friend in the same room, this would be a totally great idea.

I mean, granted the characters that could be put in the game are limitless and no one would be truly happy with those selected, it might be best to just put in the current Avengers starring in the movies these days and call the game “Avengers: sub title here.”

The only thing we have close to this is Marvel Heroes, a free to play, and actually pretty good MMO, with Diablo-like gameplay. The only problem I have with it, is it’s an MMO. I don’t want to play another never ending rpg. But I guess it can keep me busy until my dream comes true…if ever…good thing you can play Marvel Heroes forever…
