'TIS THE SEASON FOR AWESOME ACTION FILMS

I'm looking forward to seeing Terminator Salvation soon, despite the fact that Cracked is right: it doesn't make any sense.  I also loved their calling it "Terminator Salvation (aka Terminator With Batman and Transformers!)."  Heh.  Whatever, I am still watching it.

1 The theater within walking distance of our house does movies for 5$ every Tuesday (all movies, all day).  So the boy is obsessed with "Five Dollar Tuesday."

We saw Wolverine this week (and he walked the entire way home jumping and running with three fingers extended).  He saw the poster for T:S while we were there and now we can't get out of going next 5$ Tuesday. 

Sometimes I wish I hadn't taught him to read.

I also wonder why he was only being Wolverine and didn't seem to be interested in Sabretooth.  Or the Ryan Reynolds character, since he did a lot of jumping around, too.  Or Cyclops.  Boys are a mystery to me.

2 I used to prefer the Cracked versions of movies to the actual movies. This was when Cracked was a comics magazine and not a website. John Severin had a knack for drawing exact likenesses of actors.

I always related to Cyclops and could never get into Wolverine. But even Wolverine was far more three-dimensional than Sabretooth who seemed to exist solely to be his nemesis in the comics. (Haven't seen the movie yet.)

3 That's pretty much how Sabretooth is portrayed in the movie, too.  Which disappointed me terribly, as I am a huge Liev Shreiber fan.  He's way higher on the hawt scale than Hugh Jackman, I think.

I'll never get over watching Jackman dance on Broadway.  It scarred me.

4 AFW, seriously, would you rather be Wolverine or *Ryan Reynolds*?  I still can't believe that the worst actor from Nickelodeon's Fifteen is now a mega-star married to Scarlet Johannson.  His fame is a huge WTF for me.

5 Definitely Wolverine.  But I also didn't know enough about the characters to name any others and Reynolds was one of the few I recognized. 

Any time I see him I think about the movie Waiting.

6 I have never heard of Ryan Reynolds, but I ignored Fifteen. I was into DeGrassi, though.

Reynolds' movie character bears little resemblance to the masked original:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadpool_(comics)

The logic is presumably that more people recognize Ryan Reynolds' face than Deadpool's mask.

Batman and Spider-Man get to keep their masks, probably only because their masks are well-known. Otherwise Hollywood wants to get its money's worth by showing off the faces of its high-priced stars: e.g., Sylvester Stallone didn't wear Judge Dredd's trademark helmet.

7 I think Ryan Reynolds is sooo hawt...and I think Scarlett Johannson is obscenely hawt (although totally annoying for me...I mean, she is always just seems so "over " life in general...) But from a completely oh my God, let those two procreate and make lovely babies standpoint, I think their union is just great. Yeah...off topic comment, but I had to add that...

8 Ha, CVG, you're crazy.  But I guess it's probably because this is my mental Ryan Reynolds...  I watched that crappy show every week in middle school, and that's all I can picture when I see the adult Reynolds.

9 I REALLY R-E-A-L-L-Y want to see this next weekend as well. Don't matter what you call it but Christian Bale makes it look so much better than any Arnold Schwatznager version. Yes, to many that was sacrilegious ... but come ON, they know I'm really right!

10 Indeed, The Mrs. and I saw this Sunday evening, and It was good, in that it was terminator+batman+transformers+Mad Max. 

I thought is was interesting how they managed to squeeze time paradox in when this film included no time travel (most notably, when the computer explains the existence of Marcus to Marcus.)

But it was a good romp, exciting enough, although it could've used more killin'.
