Hello everyone

This is a short update so that after I see The Dark Knight this evening, I can devote a whole post to it, it’ll be my first time ever focusing one post on a single film, don’t expect too much. Speaking of TDK, I am literally just under five hours away from seeing it and all of its glory on IMAX this evening, I am so excited.

Now for the updates

Batman Begins (Blu-Ray) – 9/10 <– Scoring is irrevelant, I just reviewed this film in my last post, I just wanted to make everyone aware of the fact that it’s an absolutely beautiful film in Blu-Ray format. I was blown away by the picture quality compared to the standard, also the special feature IMAX Prologue was simply stunning. I have watched it about five times since Sunday.

Hellboy II – 6.5/10 <– This scoring is based on the film’s beauty and integrity, I’m not the biggest fan of the Hellboy movies, but they are entertaining and I kinda like the first one. This one plays off of the first one well, and it’s a quick watch, definitely not regrettable. Interesting side not for those who have seen it, I was not aware but the voicing for Klauss was Seth MacFarlane (of Family Guy fame) and it made perfect sense to me after I read that (the fish from American Dad!). Pretty good watch, it did better than expected box office-wise.

Thanks for reading and be excited for next post!
