Cinema Wins and Cinema Sins: Volume 3

CINEMA WINS
- First up, new trailers for the awfully-titled Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the well-titled The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo were both released this week and both showed that these films have a very good shot at being, well, good.

- Britain has thankfully banned the Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence, with The Film Stage stating the film “presents graphic images of sexual violence, forced defecation, and mutilation,” with the perspective being that of the main character. Relating to that, while the original showed the centipede as a medical experiment, the sequel presents it as the “depraved sexual fantasy” of our lead" http://thefilmstage.com/2011/06/06/the-human-centipede-ii-full-sequence-banned-in-uk-plot-details-emerge/. A win because, weather you are anti-censorship or not (And I certainly am anti-censorship), the less people see of the Human Centipede, the better.

CINEMA SINS
- It should comes as no surprise that after grossing $205 Million dollars worldwide in five days, The Hangover: Part III is in the works. A sin because, The Hangover never needed a sequel in the first place. I can even guess what this one will be about. The "Wolf Pack" travels to Canada where Doug tries to renew his vows, only to be force to join the other three after his wife's prized ant farm goes missing. They head to Jupiter where they meet a group of French tourists, Mike Tyson wearing an unicorn jacket and Mel Gibson complaining he wasn't in the sequel to a half-man, half-alligator Charlie Sheen. Wow, I got really carried away there, didn't I?

- Hawkman is getting his own movie. A sin because, well, he's Hawkman. It's like giving Aquaman his own video ga...aw, wait.

- The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 of 2: The Ending of The Beginning's Ending's Beginning on The Sixth of July got a trailer this week. Now I know it's easy to make fun of Twilight, but this trailer seriously sets epic action music to PEOPLE GETTING WEDDING INVITATIONS! I only expect epic action music when somebody gets invited to a birthday party that has a clown coming.

See you later.

P.S. Psych is still the best show currently on TV.

    Wait, so they gave Hawkman a movie, but not Hawkgirl? Hawkman wasn't even in the mainstream Justice League Series! Hawkgirl is infinitely better.

  2. What is DC doing, handing out movie budgets like they are halloween candies? Hawkman will be ok at the best, but ultimately, it is a waste of money. They should focus on something like, oh say, a Flash Movie! Yeah I said it! A flash movie! With Wonder Woman(hey, it might not be perfect, but it will be entertaining).

  3. Hey, I'd go see a Flash/Wonder Woman team-up movie.
