Opening Today: Batman “The Dark Knight Rises” (7/20/2012)

The big day is finally here for the fans of the Batman franchise as “The Dark Knight Rises” opens up in theaters everywhere. The film continues and apparently completes the saga that Chris Nolan began with “Batman Begins” and continued with “The Dark Knight” and I have to admit that I never realized this was going to be a trilogy. Nolan’s Batman was grittier than any we had seen before, and even more so than the one from the 1989 film where he was played by Michael Keaton. In any event I am excited for this movie.

Opening Today: “The Amazing Spider-Man” (7/3/2012)

It’s time to spin that web but first a classic song for sure…….

“Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies….Look out! Here comes a Spider-Man. Is he strong listen bud, he’s got radioactive blood. Can he swing, on a thread? Take a look overhead, hey there….there goes a Spider-Man. In the chill of night, at the scene of a crime, like a streak of light he arrives just in time…..Spider-Man, Spider-Man, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man; Wealth and fame. He’s ignored. Action is his reward. To him, life is a great big bang up. Whenever there’s a hang up; You’ll find the Spider man”.

Opening Today: “Green Lantern” (6/17/2011)

“In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night; No Evil Shall Escape My Sight; Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my Power – Green Lantern’s Light!”

That’s the famous oath of the Green Lantern Corps and the words spoken by Hal Jordan every time he needs to recharge his incredible Power Ring and “suit up” as the Green Lantern of Sector 2814. That’s Earth and its surrounding area of space in case you were curious. Today is the opening of the very first ever live action Green Lantern film and if the trailers are any example of what is to be found, then it looks like a whole lot of fun.
