Maybe. It's pretty mediocre now. Hopefully I'll have something to show for it in a few months.
Just relax, it can't be too hard, probably just asking how experienced you are or so. Anyhow my thoughts on the latest Young Justice episode:
- Hi John Stewart!
- Captain Marvel is awesome
- Wally's canonball attack is awesome
- Captain Marvel is awesome
- BATMAN IS BATMAN!
- AQUALAD IS BATMAN!
- Ya one of the coolest gay duo villains appear together!
- Planet of the Apes reference haha!
- The heroes team up again to take down a super villain
- Captain Marvel is awesome.
Thoughts/Rambles on the movie Drive:
Next movie i'm seeing is probably the Three Musketeers, i have faith Anderson can outdumb Transformers 3, not to mention gotta support Christopher Waltz!Drive is definately a big surprise for me personally because i had no hype whatsoever, not to mention i know close to nothing about the director (Refn) or the protagonists, so this was like diving into a big mystery where the only thing i knew was i was told it was action thriller crime story.
I wouldn't call this exactly an action story, while it does have it's car sequences, gun shots and brutally done fight scenes with the perfect execution marks, it's really more about a personal story of the protagonist, who in this film is only known simply as the Driver (Ryan Gosling) Funnily the easiest way to promote this movie to anyone, is quite frankly telling it's a Grand Theft Auto: Vice City the live action movie, and as a fan of Ron Perlman it was awesome to see this man Nic Cage his career again as an 59 year old Mobster who was desperately trying to up his game by acting like a teenage gangsta boss. Now enough about how brutal or funny Ron Perlman is, here's what makes this movie work: The body language Ryan Gosling embodies is perfect, and there's this very cutesy and romantical scene between the Driver and his love interest Irene (Carey Mulligan) share a tender moment of silence and the Driver asks her out, you can see her excitment despite not giving a response, they just stare at each other, breathe and the next thing you know they're on a romantic evening drive. I can't express how well Gosling's acting is and how perfect the body language is withouth digging deeper into the details of the Driver, who quite frankly is a god damn sociopath, but one the audience wants to succeed and root for, despite the obvious mental issues. The cinematography is just flatout perfect! You got silent scenes with just driving that give you an emotional punch, you got scenes of happyness and scenes of utter fright alongside showcasing us how darn beatiful the city of Los Angeles truly is, not to mention some darn cool car sequences.
Another perfect element in the movie is the soundtrack, it enchances the mood and it's all original, but it's not your typical Hans Zimmer choir music epicness, it's pretty retro i'd say, infact the whole movie is a throwback to the 80s while keeping it modern. I'd say this movie easily made to my top 3 favourite movies of the year. 5/5

It's just going to stink having a day off, then a day with a class and then another day off. Stopping and going... ugh. Like I said hopefully I can just retake the tests and get through them.
Anywho... Since as of yesterday I've read my final DCnU #1 my final list from most liked to least liked is...
Justice League Dark
The bolded are the ones I want to check out future issues of.
Fairly similar to my list:
DC Universe Presents
Batman and Robin
I'm not picking up anymore of Hawkman or Superman, and I may or may not continue reading detective after the current story is over depending on previews and as for Batman and B+R I'm still waiting on second issues to make up my mind.
The top five are definite keepers though along with Ultimate X-Men and Spider-man...and of course BPRD, Hellboy and their various minis.
I can't afford to keep many as you know. But the truth is I liked the DCnU books I read a helluva lot more than I expected to. If I can get a job it'll be no problem picking up the ones I enjoy most but since I don't I'm only buying comics with loose change after other expenses.
Animal man, Morning Glories, Ultimate X-Men and one more is all I'll be able to afford. I want to give the spot to a Marvel Universe book but I'm still undecided.
With four books it'll average to about 1 title a week, and I can live with that.
For another Marvel book my impulse is to say Ultimate Spider-Man, but for one on a budget I'd say give it a pass for now as it is good but I feel like it would read better in trade so it then becomes expendable. I don't read any other Marvel titles so I can't suggest another Marvel book to fill the last spot but my pick were I you would be Teen Titans.
Trade waiting is definitely the way to go when on a budget.
I still do it in fact, I decided to drop the ninja turtles book and wait for the trade. I loved the first issue but if it's going to unfold as slow as it seems it will I'll wait for it to come to trade especially at IDW's price point.
Columbus day is a thing of beauty like that. I don't get it off from work, but I do get a time and a half pay rate.
