Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

I saw the new Batman v. Superman trailer. Not sure what to make of it. They basically showed the entire movie in one trailer. Lex Luthor has a high pitched voice in this movie, then again I am comparing it to previous Lex Luthor’s. What I am excited to see is Wonder Woman on the big screen.

What does everyone think? Is this the correct route?

Getting ready for Star Wars…

I am a bonafide Star Wars fan. I have been since I was about 10 years old. Before Episodes I, II, and III, I was a fan when people forgot Star Wars – like the early 90’s. Return of the Jedi (ROTJ) is the movie that reeled me in. When I first saw Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford light up my pre-digital TV, I was taken in hook, line, and sinker. I enjoyed every minute of it. It wasn’t just the special effects, it was the STORY. The fight for good and evil, twins, a galactic empire, little bears, swords that lit up, the samurai theme, and the fact that a simple farm boy took down an empire and redeemed his father. It was just storytelling at its finest.
Yes, I eventually did watch The Empire Strikes Back and then Star Wars. In that order. Backwards. Hey, think about it. It was the 90’s and there was no Amazon so I had to get what I could get from the store.
Anyway, when Episodes I, II, and III came out, it was just ok to me. However, I did enjoy Revenge of the Sith. I really wanted to know how Darth Vader became Darth Vader. Basically I realized after Episode III that the entire six part movie was basically about the rise, the fall, and redemption of Darth Vader.
Since Star Wars has been part of my childhood, I do have some emotional ties to it. Therefore, I have tried to avoid watching any subsequent trailers after the very second US Teaser Trailer that came out.
I already have tickets to see it this weekend in IMAX. I saw J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek in IMAX and was blown away with the story and the camaraderie of the crew. I hope for the same feeling this Saturday…
