Matt Reeves “The Batman” and starring Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz sounds more intriguing the more I hear about it!!!

Some of you probably wanna know my thoughts about Matt Reeves “The Batman” starring Robert Pattinson and new cast member Zoe Kravitz who just got signed to play the new Selina Kyle/Catwoman. I’m a die-hard Batman fan. I love the big screen movies, love the comics and I love the animated series and animated films as well. I just love anything Batman ’cause I just love the character and the stories.

From what I’m hearing about Matt Reeves “The Batman”…. oh man, it sounds more intriguing the more I hear about it. The thing with “The Batman” they are planning is that it’s not going to be a typical origin story that we’ve already seen so many times. I’ve read this movie is going to be set in the 90’s and will focus on a much younger Bruce Wayne/Batman and in my opinion, I think Robert Pattinson is a great choice. A lot of people are skeptical of the idea since Pattinson’s history with the Twilight films but I think he will make a great Batman. Some maybe skeptical now but wait until the actual movie comes out and give him a chance. I predict Pattinson is gonna knock that role out of the park and kill it! We still haven’t seen what Pattinson is gonna look like in the bat cowl but I’m sure they’re gonna give us our first look at the new Batman soon.

I’m also hearing stuff about that “The Batman” movie is gonna focus more on a detective story and that’s what’s got me sold on it completely. That’s one thing that Batman has been missing for years… the detective part of things which is what Batman is supposed to be… a detective. All those live action Batman movies over the years… the Tim Burton films, the Schumacher films, the Christopher Nolan trilogy and the Zack Snyder Batman… they are all big action flicks and Batman was a crime fighter in all those movies, not the detective.

In the comics and graphic novels, Batman was a detective in most of ’em. Batman was also a detective in those Arkham video games by Rock Steady. I love the detective stories in Batman and it’s finally time to bring those to the big screen and I applaud Matt Reeves for that. In Matt Reeves “The Batman”, I’m sure  there will be some violence and action scenes but I hear it’s going to mostly focus on story.

I also hear the film is going to feature more than one villain and it’s probably gonna feature everybody. Penguin and the Riddler hasn’t been casted yet but if they’re going to use those characters for the film, I’d suggest they get Robin Lord Taylor for Penguin and Cory Michael Smith for The Riddler… actors who played those characters from the “Gotham” TV show on FOX. Robin Taylor as the Penguin and Cory Smith as The Riddler… oh god, those guys played those characters so well. They made a perfect Penguin and Riddler and I hope Matt Reeves will get those guys for “The Batman”. I doubt it but ya never know. I love the “Gotham” TV show on FOX as I’ve been watching it on Netflix a lot and I’ve been watching Season 4. Only 5 seasons of that show and trying to catch up to the very end of the show.

Back to “The Batman” being a detective story, like I said I love the idea and this movie needs to be a who-dun-it kind of thing. Will it be a murder mystery? Probably.

I wonder who’s going to play the rest of the characters??? They still need to cast a new Alfred Pennyworth, Lucius Fox and they need to cast Harvey Dent if they’re going to use him.

As far as other villains go…. I hope they use Dr. Hugo Strange, Killer Croc, Pyg, Hush, Two Face (Harvey Dent), Ra’s Al Ghul and Deadshot. This film will try to fit all the villains in one film. That’s the goal I think?

This film is looking to be like a trilogy of some sorts so it’s not gonna be a one-off. If this film turns out be a hit then there will probably be more.

Another question you have to ask is will I go see “The Joker” movie with Joaquin Phoenix? I’m hoping to see it and I’m gonna try to see it before it stops playing. I think it’s gonna be in the theater for a long while since it’s a box office hit. I do want to see it, though and it looks good.

Robert Pattinson is the next in line of Batman actors, I’m no fan of him like most but I’ll give him a chance…

So it’s looking like that Robert Pattinson the star of the “Twilight” movies which is he most famous for is gonna be the next Batman. That means Pattinson is gonna be added to the growing list of Batman actors for the big screen: Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck and looks like Robert Pattinson is gonna be added to the list.

Robert Pattinson to Play ‘The Batman’ for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. (EXCLUSIVE)

I’m no fan of his like most people but I’m not gonna be so quick to judge and I’m gonna give him a chance first. We haven’t even seen what he looks like in the batsuit and cowl yet. We will soon, though. I think the goal for the new Batman reboot is that they wanted a younger Batman. The Batman movies over the years focused on an older Batman who’s in his 40’s and up. They wanted someone much younger so I guess they found that Pattinson is their guy.

What do you think? Do you think Pattinson has what it takes to play the next Bruce Wayne/Batman? I don’t know. He might do a good job and he might not. We shouldn’t be so quick to negatively judge him. Why don’t people wait until we see footage from the film first instead of criticizing him ’cause of his “Twilight” fame?

Never know… Pattinson becoming the next Batman could end up being fucking awesome. We’ll have to wait and see.

Thought: What’s going to happen with the “Snow White and the Huntsmen” sequel? Is there even going to be one???

With this stupid love triangle and drama going on between Kristen, Robert, and Rupert, this could affect the sequel for, “Snow White and the Huntsmen”. I haven’t seen the film, wasn’t interested so I’ll wait for DVD Netflix rental. The rumor is that Kristen has been dropped from the sequel and AICN claims, she hasn’t yet.

Read more on the story, here.

As I said before, while Kristen is evil for what she did, she’s not the only one to take the blame for this. Robert and Rupert are guilty as well. All three were unprofessional about this ’cause they should have known that this would affect the movie business and it has been. Hollywood films should be about entertaining people, yet we got into this drama, all of a sudden.

This is not the first time that Hollywood suffered love triangles in the movie business.

I remember Elizabeth Taylor had an affair with Richard Burton while being married to Eddie Fisher, during the making of “Cleopatra”. As soon as the affair was made public, sure enough, the media was all over it for days. Elizabeth Taylor was looked at as a trainwreck at the time and people hated her for it back then. Of course, the affair affected the film. She didn’t attend the film’s premiere because of the public backlash she got. Read the article about it, here.

Love triangles is nothing new in Hollywood. Happens all the time.

Brock bashes both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart…

I hate discussing this gossip shit on this blog but I gotta get this one off my chest, can’t resist it. With the popularity of Twilight for the past couple of years, of course, this is going to make Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart a real life couple. Personally, I think this whole couple thing with Robert and Kristen, was a publicity stunt, just to help hype up the movie. I’m sure Robert thought it was a real relationship, but Kristen clearly used the guy for her own publicity. This doesn’t make Robert innocent either ’cause he should have known Kristen was going to cheat on him. This is real life, dude. He probably thought his relationship with her would go the same way Edward and Bella did, in the books. Turns out it didn’t go that way he wanted.

I got into Twilight for a little bit, but I don’t like it anymore.

Of course, the media will be all over this for days, trying to get every detail about their personal business. Some will feel sorry for Robert and hate on Kristen, sometimes it’s the other way around with Twilight fans. Like I said before, they both are guilty on this. They shouldn’t have had a relationship to begin with. So they both deserve the media backlash they are getting right now.

This stuff is all over the internet, so I thought I would respond to it just once. Will it affect the upcoming, “Breaking Dawn pt 2”? It probably will a little bit but you know these obsessive Twihards will see it anyway and it will be a huge hit, no matter what. On top of that, Kristen Stewart is not a good looking girl anyway, plus, I’m sure the skank had experiences with cheating plenty of times before. She’s probably gonna cheat on Rupert Sanders too, give it time. She’s no Bella from the books. Don’t be so confused with fiction and reality.

Just thought I would give my thoughts, since some of you may be wondering.

Edit to add: Another thing I wanted to add to this, think how the other cast members and film crew would feel about this stupid love triangle, both the behind the scenes crew from “The Twilight” series and “Snow White and The Huntsmen” might be pretty disgusted by this. So this is pretty unprofessional behavior for both Robert and Kristen. It’s going to affect both film franchises if you think about it.

Film Review: “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” ***Major Spoilers***

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner

Directed by: David Slade

So yesterday, I went to the mall to see the movie, “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” the newest Twilight film. I will be discussing the storyline so there will be major spoilers. So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, do not read any further.

Plot/Synopsis: The story is about an evil redheaded female vampire named, Victoria that wants to kill Bella. Victoria sets up her own army of newborn vampires to help with her mission. As Victoria is on her way to kill Bella, a love triangle is trapped between Bella, Jacob and Edward. Both Edward and Jacob are in love with Bella, but of course, Bella wants to be with Edward more. Throughout the film, we see a bit of hatred between Edward and Jacob. Later in the film, Jacob and Edward threw their hatred aside to get along so they can save Bella’s life from Victoria and the newborns. As Victoria tries to kill Bella, her mission is interupted because the Volturi returned to kill Victoria.

Yes, I know the “Twilight” series has always been a target for it being aimed at tweens and the series being written by a woman named, Stephenie Meyer. It is mostly men out there trashing the series only because it’s aimed at tweens. Yes, I agree that the series is kind of aimed at tweens, I won’t deny that either but after seeing “Eclipse”, what I saw wasn’t a tween movie and I’m going to explain in this review.

In “Twilight: Eclipse” what I saw was a film that was pretty maturing, in the directing and writing part. What I’m saying is, this film is more adult like. The film got a PG-13 rating after all. Why is this? Because the movie wasn’t really aimed at young teenagers. I believe the reason for the PG-13 rating was that there was a lot more violence and more blood than the first two Twilight films. The first two Twilight films were too family friendly, indeed, but this one is more on the darker side. Plus, there were a few love scenes that were almost sexual that couldn’t get a PG rating. Of course, there are plenty of shirtless muscle guys in the film.

Another popular attack of the film are the werewolves. A lot of Twilight haters like to make fun of the CGI werewolves, saying that they look more like dogs instead of the werewolves like you see in movies such as “American Werewolf in London”, “The Wolf Man”, and “The Howling” why, Twilight werewolves don’t look like those. The thing that people make the mistake with werewolves in the film is, they aren’t really werewolves. In the books, Stephenie wrote that they are actually shapeshifters. They are also decadents of actual wolves. This is what Stephenie had to do in order to make the wolves more family friendly for the teens.

As for vampires in Twilight surviving during the day, not being killed by a stake through the heart, and not being afraid of the crucifix…in vampire fiction you can create vampire survival however you want. In vampire fiction, most vampire authors make vampire survival differently. The HBO TV show, “True Blood”, the vampires survive differently too and the same with that new vampire movie, “Daybreakers” with Ethan Hawke. Stephenie had a different vision with her feel of vampires. Every vampire fiction has their own way of killing a vampire, and in “Twilight”, the only way to kill a vampire is dismember their body parts and burn them. And in that movie “Daybreakers”, the only way to kill a vampire in that film is either by sunlight or explosion.

You see, not every movie or book needs to have the same way of vampire survival or death. That’s the freedom of creative writing and freedom of speech in America. Back to “Twilight: Eclipse”, yes, there are also plenty of love scenes and muscle guys for the girl fans. The goal with this film was that they wanted something for everybody in it. The love scenes and the shirtless guys for the girls. The action and the violence for male fans. The film’s directing style greatly improved from the first two films. David Slade is a great director since he did “40 Days of Night”. Maybe that was why this film had a mature feeling. There is also an improvement in the dialogue and the acting as well.

Overall, I thought it was a pretty good “Twilight” movie. The series is improving every film. The reason the film had a mature feeling to it ’cause the film was too dark and violent for tweens to see. When I saw the film in theater, I didn’t see a theater full of young teenage girls surprisingly. Yes, there were some tweens in there, but not as much as there was when I saw the first two films in theater. What I saw was an age range of mostly 20’s – 30’s, both male and female in the theater audience. Summit Entertainment’s goal with Twilight, is that they want these films to be for everybody, not just tweens. That’s why they decided to experiment with a PG-13 rating, to see what kind of age differences they get of an audience in theaters.

The reason I like these series is because I’m a huge fan of vampire fiction. I admit Stephenie’s stories is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, but for some reason she draws me into reading them and seeing the movies. Since most people are into “Harry Potter”, I decided to be into “Twilight” instead.

Score for “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” = *** (3 Stars as in “good)

Well, after all the fame and popularity with “Twilight”, you know the major record labels will indeed be interested in, Robert Pattinson. Not too worry Robert, I think you can do both movies and music easily with no problem. Just ask Rob Zombie, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Harry Connick Jr.and Madonna who have done both.
