Man of Steel is Awesome

Man of Steel was amazing. It was the first Supermen film to live up to the characters potenial. I really hated Superman II when it came out for a number of reasons, and watching this showed how a battle between Kryptonians should look. Not only was the Krypton scenes as epic as they always should be, Michael Shannon was a great General Zod. As much as I love Terrance Stamp his Zod was cheesy.

The critics who are dissing this film don’t seem to like that this is a post-911 Superman, but its also more realistic and believable. If a being that powerful showed up the government wouldn’t just accept him on face value.

The cast was uniformly good. Love Amy Adams as Lois Lane. She was perfect. And Henry Cavill is the best Superman yet.

The theater was packed on Friday so I went this morning at 9:30 AM and there was a line even then. It’ll be a bi;;ion dollar film for sure. And they showed the great new Hobbit trailer which looks fantastic on the big screen.

Sorry About That

Some jagoff hacked my site, probably because of my last cartoon. Only fascists try to squash free speech.

The Hobbit 2: Desolation of Smaug

Its looking good, though I see a lot of changes here. Legolas wasn’t in the book. And when they escaped in the barrels the Elves didn’t chase them. But I’m still very psyched to see this.

Nixbama

Nixon was a lot smarter and more competent than Obama. He also actually had a sense of honor and the importance of office which is why he resigned. Obama will not resign unless he really has to. And he will do everything in his power to try to blame others for his own misdeeds.

I just found out yesterday, for example, that Bosch Fawstin, the comics artist who gave us Pigman and who I interviewed for my podcasts, befriended Senator Ted Cruz on Facebook when the Senator wanted to follow him there. And the second he did, the so-called Justice Department started following Bosch on Facebook. Nixon wasn’t as obvious as these clowns, either.

New Site

James Hudnall (this site) is being redone in a new format. Pardon our dust. I felt it was time for a reboot. I am also consolidating everything under one URL so thehud.com and jameshudnall.com both will direct here now.

I’d been wanting to redo the site since the start of the year. But things got out of hand with my webhost charging me too much because a wordpress plugin as eating up bandwidth. I have a feeling things would not be resolved to my satisfaction as I have been through similar problems with hosts in the past. So I moved again and hopefully I can get my data back from the old host. In the mean time I will be building up a new site which will hopefully behave better than my old one. It was a little buggy and I didnt habe time to figure out what was wrong. Been a busy bee. That’s why I don’t post much lately, but I will try to amend that.

 

In the mean time check out the art for Blue Cat 2 coming in June from Aces Weekly!

Iron Man 3: Review

Personally, I loved it. It was very funny, funnier than most comedies, yet it was also a good action movie where Tony Stark, not Iron Man, does most of the heavy lift. There is no writer I can think of, save maybe Quentin Tarantino who could write Tony Stark as well as Shane Black, whose style of humor is so suited to Robert Downey Jr.

The critics who don’t like this movie are angry either that Iron Man is less the focus this time around, or the twist about the Mandarin, they just don’t get it that its really about Stark, the man in the suit and is tailor made for Downey’s unique talents. And it works. The big fight at the end is clearing things for the next one. I was very satisfied.
