Movie Monday: Sync-Episode 1

On my travel to find a movie for Monday I came across this web series, Snyc. It was under the sci-fi short search on YouTube and I was not to sure why. But after I watched it I understand the reason. I have to tell you this is by far one of the most interesting pieces I have come across. I want to explain the premise of the story but you have to watch it. The acting by the lead actor, Tanner Thomason was wonderful. Dircetors Sam Gorski, Niko Pueringer do a outstanding job. Also the story by Ira Parker is something I do not remember seeing anywhere else.  After doing some research I have found that there are 12 installments to the web series and I am going to go and watch the rest. I hope you will take the time to do so also.

So Poppers sit back and watch Snyc.

The Box Trolls

From the studio that created Coraline and ParaNorman, Laika comes The Box Trolls.  Directed by Graham Annable & Anthony StacchiVoiced by Elle Fanning, Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Isaac Hempstead Wright.

The Birds Of Prey: Sing A Little Song

Oh the joys of using Stumbleupon.

So sitting at the old computer trying to find some news to pass along I started just use Stumbleupon to see what I could find. Boy did I find a nice one.

This piece is from Batman: Brave and the Bold. In the episode old Batty got amnesia, grew a mustache, became a gangster and was trying to take over Gotham. Oh but that is not the best part my fellow Poppers. Black Canary, the Huntress and Catwoman teamed up to bring Batman down as the Birds of Prey, and sang a song about doing the beast with two back with some of  DC’s superheroes.

So sit back and have a watch of the girls sang a song and find out who has a tiny fish?

Credit has to go to Gail Simone, who penned this spectacular episode.

Oh here are the lyrics if you like to know what they are.

Good evening, all you gentlemen
Mobsters, creeps and crooks

Men in tights come after you
And still you’re off the hook

For those who scare and terrorize
It’s the dawn of a brand new day

YOU SCUM CAN SIMPLY CALL US
THE ONE AND ONLY BIRDS OF PREY

Green Lantern has his special ring
Pretty strong that little thing

Blue Beetle’s deeds are really swing
But who will bring him out of his shell

Flash’s rogues, they finish last
Too bad sometimes he’s just too fast

While all the boys can always save the day
No one does it better than the Birds of Prey (The one and only Birds of Prey)

While all the boys can always save the day
No one does it better
No one does it better than the Birds of Prey

Green Arrow has heroic traits
That is when he’s shooting straight (Hey!)
I’m just saying

Aquaman’s always courageous
His little fish, less outrageous

Plasticman can expand
Becomes putty in our hands

While all the boys can keep you punks at bay
No one does it better than the Birds of Prey (The one and only Birds of Prey)

While all the boys can always save the day
No one does it better
No one does it better than the Birds of Prey

Batman throws his Batarang
What a weapon, what a bang

Check out that utility belt
Sure can make a girl’s heart melt

He’s always right there for the save
I’d like to see his secret cave

While Batman does things in his special way
He’d do it better with the Birds of Prey (The one and only Birds of Prey)

While Batman always seems to save the day
No one does it better
No one does it better than the Birds of Prey (Birds of Prey)

Iron Man 3 My View

So ladies and nerds I just got back a couple of hours ago from seeing Iron Man 3 and I have to say I am please. Did I get the same excitement I got form  seeing the first Iron Man. No. I did still enjoy the movie and it is a a summer pop corn movie at it’s best. If you are a fan boy or girl and have any knowledge of Tony Stark and Iron Man history I am sure you will be pissed off. Remember thou that Marvel has to make a film for all to enjoy, not just fan nerds. The big thing that will piss off real fans of Iron Man is the treatment of the Mandarin. The Mandarin created by Stan Lee and portrayed as a genius scientist, master of Kung Fu and his ten power rings from alien technology. Well the Mandarin here is just a (Spoiler) patsy for the real villain of the film, Aldrich Killian played by Guy Pearce.

iron-man-3-new-posters-featuring-the-mandarinI for one did not mind  because of the acting of Ben Kingsley. Ben does a great job as a hippie actor hired to portray a terrorist mastermind. Ben also bring some to funniest moments to the film. Guy Pearce is also great as the villain of the movie and the leader of A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics). Yes I know A.I.M. is different from the Marvel comics but again this is a movie for the summer pop corn fair.

Robert Downey Jr is great again as Tony Stark. Gwyneth Paltrow returns to play Pepper Potts and I am happy to see her get into some of the action. I have always been a big fan of having strong female characters in action movies. Yes in 1 and 2 Gwyneth’s Pepper Potts did little action but in Iron Man 3 she finally gets to kick some ass and it was nice to see. Oh almost forgot about Don Cheadle. Not that he was not any good but I felt his part in Iron Man 3 was nothing more than a device to move the movie along. What a waste. Don was better used in Iron Man 2 and deserved better. The special affects again are great and we get to see a range of different suits that Tony has been working on through those sleepless nights. Another fun part of the movie is when Tony runs into a boy Harley Keener played by Ty Simpkins. The chemistry between the two is great and is another highlight of the movie.

If you have stayed this long to read my little view of the movie, thanks. But if you looking for some in depth review with me looking for some deep meaning in the movie or analyzing different aspects of the film then you be sorry. I am just a fan and not a serious reviewer. I go to movies to lose myself for a couple of hours and hope to have fun.

By the time you read this Iron Man 3 has probably made a shitload of money and really if you want to see it nothing I say or anyone else says will stop you from going. So go and have fun.

I give Iron Man 3, 3 and 1/2 drunk Tony Starks out of 5

The Gift

One of the things I have started to enjoy is searching the web for interesting video and sharing them. I think this is one to share.
This short sci-fi films takes place in Russia. This film has more that 20 CGI effects and a great chase scene. First of all just enjoy the short and at the amazing work done it. Forget to look for any meaning because if you do I believe you will not like it. Sometime folks a movie if just a movie and is meant to be enjoyed.
Oh yeah this short was done almost a year ago. Still deserves a look.
