Human Torch as... Captain America?

March 24, 2010

Chris Evans has recently been given the role of Captain America and not that I think he can€™t do it, just, he is the Human Torch first in my mind. I thought it was excellent casting when they chose him for the role. He is too good of a Johnny Storm to switch to Steve Rogers. Rogers is All-American gentlemen and soldier while Chris Evans plays that smart-ass wise guy role of Johnny Storm so well that being in a born-leader role like Mr. Rogers seems like an ill fit.

I think Chris Pine (Captain Kirk in the most recent Star Trek movie) makes for a good young Captain America while also not messing with the current Marvel universe movie cast. He proves in Star Trek that he€™s young but still got the chops to be the leader and make important decisions. This is the man who you want leading The Avengers, not the fun, smart ass guy making jokes and showing his inexperience.


Read a little bit about the character to get the feel of who Steve Rogers/Captain America is. Check the Wikipedia page here or if you€™re looking for some great comic book material, look up Civil War, by the Mark Millar. (This guy who brought us Wanted [the comic is much better than the movie with Jolie], Old Man Logan, and the most recent comic book turned into film, KICK ASS, and his most recent comic book, Nemesis, first issue has just been released this month and I already got mine)

Side note: BHSC writer is a huge comic book fan, so expect more posts like this. If you don't like comic books/graphic novels, re-evaluate your life.

The Beginning: Making Episode 1
The Beginning: Making Episode 1

January 09, 2016

It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.

I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
