I admit that I haven’t always been the biggest fan of Supergirl. It’s probably because the first Supergirl comic I ever read featured Superman putting his poor cousin in an orphanage and Supergirl barely ever got to fight any real bad guys. But as DC rebooted the character, over time she was given much more to do and was stereotyped significantly less. She remembers more about Krypton than Superman does and is even more powerful than him. I mean, the girl can even kick Darkseid’s ass. She is a great character. It amazes me that it took this long to finally get a Supergirl TV show. And I have to say, the new trailer gives me a lot of confidence that the show is going to be awesome.
When I went to see Age of Ultron ten-ish days ago, I found myself underwhelmed by the majority of the trailers. We’ve covered our disinterest in Batman v Superman already, and I would preferably look at dog shit for three hours over spending money to see Ant-Man. But nestled among the uninteresting trailers for an nth Mission Impossible movie and a third Insidious installment was an unlikely gem: the preview for Tomorrowland. For a film that wasn’t even on my radar before I walked into that auditorium, I’m pretty psyched to see it now. Continue reading
So far, this year seems to be when animated films are going hard. Whether it be the newest adaptation of The Little Prince or the beautifully rendered story of Bilal, it seems that at least in this genre of film, the minds behind the screen are seeking out more diversity than ever. I’m happy to share with you all today another story that keeps up this trend with gorgeous eye-catching images and a story that will spark the curiosity of the young, while remaining poignant to the old.
Like many people, I read The Little Prince as a child, puzzling over first the illustrations and later the themes of the novel. It was such a unique reading experience that I never thought it would be adapted successfully in any other medium. Yet here we are in 2015, and there’s a trailer (well, a couple trailers) for a Little Prince movie on the internet. I’m… cautiously excited?
Well, it’s finally here, everyone: the first trailer for the Batman vs. Superman movie—and judging from the trailer, this movie will either be amazing or horrific and awful. Take a look:
While I enjoyed Nolan’s Dark Knight movies, with the exception of the last one, my enjoyment of Man of Steel was much more fleeting. There are parts of the movie I like, but on the whole, I found that the story suffered from a lot of problems. Most notably, I think its tone was too dark, the aesthetics too muted, the characters too unrelatable, and the last fight scene too long, overdone, and destructive. And judging from this new trailer, it doesn’t look like any of those issues are going to change.
When I’m not browsing for cute pictures or just scrolling out of boredom, I like to keep tabs on my Tumblr dash for things that catch a lot of attention, or look like they might. So when one day I saw the trailer for The Book of Mojo show up on my dash almost continuously for the entire day, I thought I better have a look at it myself. I don’t remember if I was surprised or not, but the fact of the matter is The Book of Mojo has everything I love in an urban fantasy setting.
You guys, I never thought this day would come. No, like, literally, I never thought this day would come because Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02 already ended with all the protagonists saving the world, and there was even a terrible Harry Potter-style epilogue in which all the wrong people got married and had kids.
But then this appeared on the internet.
