“The Best” -Vs- “My Favorite”: Episode III: Super Heroes And Super Sequels

Alright, Kiddies…

…Let Us Play This Little Game Again.

Y’all Seemed To Enjoy These…

…So Why Not Go For Another, Eh!?

Why Not, Indeed.

๐Ÿ˜‰

So…

…Today I Wanna Talk…

“SUPER HEROES”

…With Y’all.

I’m Going To Do The BIG TWO (2) For Our Third Episode.

Namely…

BATMAN

&

SUPERMAN

๐Ÿ˜€

Shall We Officially Begin?!

WE SHALL!!

๐Ÿ™‚

*** *** *** *** ***

I’m Going To Begin With “BATMAN” Simply Because This Is The One I Expect To Cause The Most Commotion.

First Thing I Need To Say, Is…

…NO.

NO, I Have NOT Seen…

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

(2012)

…Yet.

I Don’t Tend To Hit The Cinema Anymore…

…So It’s The One “BATMAN” Flick That Has Slipped Through My Proverbial Cracks.

SO…

…This Edition Of…

“THE BEST” -Vs- “MY FAVORITE”

…Must Be Put Into Proper Context.

Based On Those I’ve Seen, I’m Going To Say “THE BEST” Would (Likely) Be Either…

BATMAN

(1989)

…Or…

THE DARK KNIGHT

(2008)

…Right?!

RIGHT!!

They’re Both Exceptional Flicks, Fo SHO, And I Do Enjoy Them Both…

…BUT…

…Are Either Of Those Flicks…

“MY FAVORITE”

??? ??? ???

??? ???

???

Nope.

So What Is…

“MY FAVORITE”

???????

BATMAN RETURNS

(1992)

๐Ÿ˜€

For My Money…

BATMAN RETURNS

…Was…

…By FAR FAR FAR…

“MY FAVORITE”

Period.

To ME…

…It Was Honestly The Darkest Chapter In The Annals Of “BATMAN” History.

MICHELLE PFEIFFER

…As…

“CATWOMAN”

…Was Exceptional!

Especially The Patton-Leather Outfit.

She Was Just So Damned Sexy AND So Damned Viscous!

I LOVED IT.

As For…

DANNY DeVITO

…As…

“THE PENGUIN”

…He Was Literally So Revolting It Was Brilliant.

I Don’t Think Anyone Could Have Played That Part Like He Did.

Period.

AND…

…To Top It All Off…

…You’ve Got MY Favorite “BATMAN” Of The Bunch…

MICHAEL KEATON

!!! !!! !!!

Yes, My Peeps…

I AM A CHILD OF THE ’80s AND ’90s…

…So It’s Only Proper My Loyalties Lay There.

I Saw The 1989 Version Of “BATMAN” On Opening Weekend In 1989…

…And It Was The Same For “BATMAN RETURNS” In 1992.

I Never Thought They’d Be Able To Top The 1989 Installment…

…And Then Came 1992.

I Was Simply Blown Away.

It’s A Feeling I Haven’t Felt Since, In Regard To “SUPERHERO” Flicks.

With “BATMAN RETURNS” I Got Everything I Wanted From The Series.

Period Period.

I Know A Lot Of People STRONGLY Disliked It…

…But There Are A Few Of Us Whom Never Could Get Enough Of It!!!

*** *** *** *** ***

Alright, Kids…

…Moving On Moving On…

…To…

SUPERMAN

!!! !!! !!!

With The Selection Of Flicks In The “SUPERMAN” Saga…

…This One Is An EASY No-Brainer.

Which One Would (Likely) Be Considered The Best?!

Well…

…For Most Folks…

…I’d Venture To Say…

SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE

(1978)

…Would Be Considered “THE BEST” Of “THE BEST” Of “THE BUNCH”…

…Fo SHO.

BUT BUT BUT…

…My Peeps…

…Does…

SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE

…Rank As…

“MY FAVORITE”

??? ???

Nope.

Sorry.

I’m A Firm Believer That…

SUPERMAN II

(1980)

…Is Superior.

At Least, It Is For Me.

SUPERMAN II

…Gave Me EVERYTHING I Sincerely Wanted From The Whole Franchise.

To Me…

SUPERMAN II

…Is…

“MY FAVORITE”

…”SUPERHERO” Flick Of ALL-TIME!!!

I Even Went So Far As To Get The Theatrical Cut Of The Flick On The DVD…

…Then Picked-Up The “RICHARD DONNER CUT” On The Blu-Ray.

SUPERMAN II

…Spawned A Couple Halloween’s Worth Of…

“BRADLEY Is SUPERMAN This Year… …Again.”

๐Ÿ˜‰

*** *** *** *** ***

SOOOOOO…

…MY PEEPS…

WHICH “SUPERHERO” FLICKS Are YOUR FAVORITES?!?!?

I’d LOVE To Know.

I’m Very VERY Curious.

Not Everyone Has The Same Opinion…

…And I’d Love To Know Yours!

*** *** *** *** ***

“CASINO ROYALE” (2006) Starring DANIEL CRAIG As JAMES BOND -007… …Brilliance In Motion.

I’d Totally Forgotten How Wonderful This Flick Is.

In Fact…

…It Totally Trumps The Entire PIERCE BROSNAN Series Of Films.

CASINO ROYALE

…Is One Of The BEST BOND FLICKS Since…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And That’s Saying A Lot.

I Simply LOVE…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And It’s One Of My All-Time FAVES From The BOND FRANCHISE.

I Consider It THE MOST Underrated BOND Flick.

Period.

Now…

CASINO ROYALE

…Is A Reboot.

It Takes JAMES BOND (DANIEL CRAIG) From His First Kill, All The Way Through, What Turned Out To Be, An Exceptional Adventure.

Once I’m Done With This One…

…I Plan To Watch…

QUANTUM OF SOLACE

…Which I ALSO Considerย  An Exceptionally Underrated BOND Flick.

What Are YOU Watching Tonight, My Peeps?!?!

Anything Worth Mentioning?!?!

I Sure Hope So!!!

Bring On The BOND, My Peeps!!!

Bring On The BOND!!!!!!!

“I Wanna Ask You… Do You… Ever Sit And Wonder… It’s So Strange… That We Could Be Together… For So Long… And Never Know… Never Care… What Goes On In The Other One’s Head? …”–BEN FOLDS feat. REGINA SPEKTOR (“You Don’t Know Me” (2008))

“…Things I’ve Felt But I’ve Never Said

You Said Things That I Never Said

So I’ll Say Something That I Should Have Said

Long Ago…”

“…YOU DON’T KNOW ME

YOU DON’T KNOW ME AT ALL

YOU DON’T KNOW ME

YOU DON’T KNOW ME AT ALL. …”

“…You Could Have Just Propped Me Up

On The Table Like A Mannequin

Or A Cardboard Stand-Up And Paint Me

Paint Me Anything

Any Face That You Wanted Me

To Be

Seen With

Damned By The Existential Moment Where

We Saw The Couple In The Coma

And

It Was

We Were The Cliche

But We Carried On Anyway. …”

I Sincerely LOVE Whippin’-Out A Quality Tune At 5A.M.

It Brings A Sense Of Joy Into My World That Wasn’t There Before.

Joy…

…To Be Honest AND Blunt About It…

…Is PRICELESS.

So Many People Push For It.

So Many People Lust For It.

Crave It.

Desire It.

And Everyone Has Their Own Sense Of It.

Everyone Has That Little Thing That Brings It To The Forefront.

This Morning…

…This Song…

YOU DON’T KNOW ME

By

BEN FOLDS

…Is What Brought Me MY Sense Of Joy.

So…

…I’m Curious, My Peeps…

What Brings YOU Joy???

Is It A Song???

Is It A Movie???

A Poem???

A Book???

WHAT WHAT WHAT Brings The Joy Into Your World???

??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

(Not So) Random Movie Mention: “THE ONION MOVIE” (2008)

So…

…Who’s Up For A Laugh?!?

SWEET!!!

I Totally Gotcha Covered!!!

Check-Out THIS Flick!!!

||

\\//

Honestly, My Peeps…

THE ONION MOVIE

(2008)

…Is In The TOP 5 For FUNNIEST FLICKS Of The Past DECADE.

.PERIOD.

I Sincerely COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING It’s So SO FUNNY.

And I Ain’t Even Jokin’, Kiddies.

I Laughed The Whole Way Through It.

Being An Avid Reader Of…

THE ONION

("AMERICA'S FINEST NEWS SOURCE.")

...This Flick Proved To Be EXACTLY What The Doctor Ordered.

It’s A Very Healthy Blend Of Sketch-Comedy AND Satire As ONLY…

THE ONION

…Can Do It.

I’d Say It’s Damned Near A BILLION-TIMES-FUNNIER Than Almost EVERY Sketch/Satire Film I’ve Seen.

Like Ever.

AND…

…It’s Produced By…

DAVID ZUCKER

…Who Was One Of The Producers Who Brought Us Such Classics As…

“AIRPLANE!”

“TOP SECRET!”

“THE NAKED GUN”

“SCARY MOVIE 3”

etc etc etc

This One, However, Is MORE RAUNCHY…

…MORE VULGAR…

…MORE FUNNY…

…And It TOTALLY Goes For The Gut…

…Inducing DEEP DEEP Belly-Laughs!!!

No Foolies, My Peeps.

It’s THAT Funny.

I Sincerely Recommend This Flick To ANYONE Who Needs A Really Good Laugh.

If You Ain’t Laughin’ With This Flick On The Tube…

…Then You’re Likely Dead, Or Something To That Effect.

Like I Said…

THE ONION MOVIE

…Is One Of The Funniest Flicks I’ve Seen In The Past DECADE.

Give It A Go, My Peeps.

You Can Thank Me Afterward.

And HOPEFULLY You’ll Be Thanking Me With A HUGE SMILE On Your Face.
